    THE STUDENTS FACED BATTLE-DRESSED RIOT POLICE, WATER CANNON AND MOUNTED POLICE WHEN THEY MADE ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO BESIEGE PRINTING HOUSES OF THE AXEL SPRINGER NEWSPAPER GROUP.

    IN WEST BERLIN THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS ASSEMBLED TO HEAR SPEECHES FROM A FORMER MAYOR OF WEST BERLIN, HEINRICH ALBERTZ, AND PROFESSOR HEINRICH DHARENDORF.

    LATER THE STUDENTS MARCHED ON THE CITY'S TELEVISION STATION, DEMANDING AND HOUR'S PROGRAMME TIME DAILY, IN WHICH THEY COULD AIR THEIR GRIEVANCES. THEIR DEMONSTRATION LOST SOME OF ITS EFFECT WHEN THE STATION DIRECTOR UNEXPECTEDLY AGREED TO OPEN DISCUSSIONS ON THE PROPOSALS.

    IN HAMBURG, THE STUDENTS' UNION CALLED FOR A BOYCOTT OF LECTURES TODAY, WHEN THE SUMMER TERM OPENS. YESTERDAY HAMBURG STUDENTS MARCHED ON THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE SPRINGER PUBLISHING GROUP IN THE CITY, AND ATTEMPTED TO HOLD UP DELIVERIES.

    POLICE MADE SEVERAL ARRESTS IN HAMBURG, MUNICH AND FRANKFURT.

    THE SERIES OF DEMONSTRATIONS WAS SPARKED OFF BY THE ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION LAST WEEK OF LEFTWING STUDENT LEADER "RED" RUDI DUTSCHKE.
