Trustees to discuss the conflict over ROTC. The silence of the Trustees in the meeting caused frustrated students to sit in at the Bursar ' s office. They left or were removed when the office closed at 4:30 p.m., after Vice President MacDonald read an injunction against the sit-in. Five were arrested after some incidents of violence punc- tuated the demonstration. novation of the third floor stack area overlooking Hunt- ington Avenue into a reading room with lounge furniture and carpeting. In the technological phase of operations, the library joini^d the New England Library Information Network (NELINET), a computer link with 21 other New England libraries for the purposes of sharing catalogue and human resources to avoid costly duplication of effort. The same night a group of dissidents broke into Rich- ards Hall and chained the door closed behind them. Po- lice overtook the demonstrators, including the national secretary of SDS who was out on bail after her earlier ar- rest in the Bursar ' s office that afternoon. Three arrests were made and a crowd of onlookers and protestors about 350 strong paraded down Speare Place chanting anti-war slogans. They headed towards the Greenleaf Building but turned back when they found several Bos- ton Police vehicles waiting for them. Interest in storming the building was minimal, and by 12:30 a.m. the crowd had dispersed. The following morning, students sat on the steps of Richards Hall for a few hours, then proceeded to march through several buildings, beating a bass drum and chanting. The issue of amnesty for those ar- rested the previous day was posed to Dean Kennedy, who declared that he felt the Bursar ' s office incident had been handled properly, and am- nesty was not deserved. Afterwards, 40 students moved into the President ' s office and he agreed to speak with two represen- tatives. Later that evening an open meeting was held in the Lounge and five demands were agreed upon. In- cluded among these were a demand for the immediate end to the war; an end to all university complicity in the war; amnesty for those arrested in the campus incidents; the conversion of the Greenleaf Build- ing into a day care center; and university scholarships to replace those lost by the cancellation of ROTC. After all the furor had .settled, the Trustees decided ROTC would stay just as it was. The Dodge library was undergoing changes as part of the plan to make do with the existing structure until such time as the 16-story vision would become a reality. Physi- cal renovations over the period from Spring, 1972 to 1973, included air conditioning installations on the first and third floors, removal of the card catalogs to a central loca- tion in the lobby, carpeting and improved lighting in a central information and check-out foyer area, and the re- Over a fairly quiet summer the major issue was the stu- dent lawyer program which was finally accepted in Sep- tember, two weeks before the upperclassmen returned from their brief vacation. The divisive question about the lawyer program involved the use of the lawyer ' s services in cases against the university. The tardy acceptance of the program led to a lack of publicity which resulted in less than 500 subscribers to the program. The upperclassmen also faced a $60 per quarter tuition increase when they returned for the fall quarter. The increase was a signifi- cant indication of one of the most basic problems facing Northeastern as 1973 set upon her. Private educa- tion is running a high risk of pricing itself out of business. As the costs of operation increase, tuition must in- crease, until a price is reached which students cannot pay. Con- current with this threat, for North- eastern in particular, is the impend- ing threat embodied by the new Columbia Point campus of U. Mass. Public education seems cheaper, and admission requirements are also more flexible. This makes state schools seem particularly attractive. Another problem not to be eased with the coming of U. Mass. students to Boston, is the problem of student housing. This problem and its ramifi- cations were graphically demonstrated when Division B upperclass residents returned from vacation to find their rooms had been assigned to freshmen the previous week. 49 students were housed temporarily in the Midtown Mo- tor Inn and other emergency housing acquisitions. In the Fall of 1973, the housing crunch is expected to be even more emphatic as U. Mass. students join the competition for cheap urban housing. On October 4, 1972 the Afro-American Institute gained new leadership in the person of Gregory T. Ricks, who was appointed Dean of the Institute. Ricks took office with plans to initiate a new program of " academic ex- cellence " , including improved counseling, educational environment, and employment opportunities for Black students.
