Protestors Warned
By George M. Borkowski
The Law School Administrative
Board took action this summer in
a continuing response to last
spring's protests against apartheid.
Those protests voiced opposition to
the South African government's
policies of racial segregation, and
to Harvard's $400 million invest-
ment in companies which do busi-
ness in that country.
In the first of two major moves,
the Ad Board voted on May 16th
to issue warnings to ten HILS stu-
dents identified as participating in
the sit-in at the 17 Quincy Street
offices of the Harvard Corporation
on April 24th. [Record, May 10,

sit-in, and stated that each signa-

The warning letter stated that

accept a professorship at the Uni-
versity of Chicago School of Law,
He will also be affiliated with the
Chicago law firm of Mayer, Brown
& Platt, where he will do appellate
Bator's departure is significant
not only because he is one of the
most senior members of the faculty,
but also because he is one of the
relatively few conservatives on a
faculty that is generally perceived
as liberal,
Professor Bator received his LL.B
degree at Harvard in 1956, the same
year he was elected president of the
Law Review. Subsequently, he
clerked for Justice Harlan and spent

two years in private practice before
returning to HLS as an assistant
professor in 1959. He became a full
professor in 1962, generally teach.
ing courses in Civil Procedure and
Federal Courts, and served as As-
sociate Dean from 1971 to 1973.

Washington as Deputy Solicitor

cases before the Supreme Court. He
turned down an appointment to the
Circuit Court of Appeals in order
to resume teaching at HLS in Jan-
