    Background: The precincts of the Sorbonne were filled when 3,000 Paris students took to the banners again. 'Nous voulons des maitres' pleaded one borne by three pretty girls - to protest against lack of teachers and teaching space.

    An assembly of teachers on the morning of 19 November unanimously adopted the motion
    "On the occasion of the students strike...decide to join this movement by suspending courses and laboratory work from Wednesday midday until Thursday evening"
    The motion goes on to demand a definitive solution to two urgent problem - construction of new buildings by hastening work on the Halle des Vins site, and the release of credits quoted by the 'le Gorgeu' plan as a vital minimum.

    The Minister of Education received the Rector of the Academie de Paris and the senior Professor of the Academie des Sciences November 18 to hear of steps already taken. These include a reallotment of lecture halls and laboratories - 1040 zoology students at present occupy a lecture theatre designed for 240 - three new 300 seat lecture theatres have been found, and construction work at the Halle des Vins is being speeded.
