The university's Student Court ruled Wed- nesday that closing hours at OU women's dormitories violate the student constitution. Student Court Judge Tom Williams of Oklahoma City announced the decision in a case filed by Jo Anne Zielinski, a freshman from Enid. The Judges declined to issue a restraining order asked by Miss Zielinski against Teresa Black, an Oklahoma City senior and dorm counselor. The student court said it has no authority over residence hall counselors since they are university employes and could not issue an order forbidding Miss Black from enforcing dormitory regulations. Student judges explained that their ruling does not abolish dormitory closing hours, but does mean the University of- Oklahoma Student Association no longer may enforce prosecution against women violating the university regulation. University officials may appeal the rul- ing to the Student Superior Court and it was pointed out that final authority for con- tinuing or abolishing closing hours rests witli the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents. University regulations require women living in dorms to be in by midnight Sunday through Thursday and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. There are no closing hours for men's residence halls. The student court said the closing rule for women violated not only the OU student constitution, but the U.S. Constitution and a recent ruling by OU regents and acting OU president Dr. Pete Kyle McCarter which "recognized equality of women on the University of Oklahoma campus." By GEORGE ESPEIl Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP) A U.S. Ma- rinc helicopter reluming to Da Nang with a crippled patrol crashed into a mountain side in the fog Wednesday, killing all 15 Marines aboard. It was the worst crash in Viet- nam since Aug. when a big CII47 Chinook helicopter was shot down southeast of Da Nang and 31 U.S. Army men were killed. Among the dead in Wednes- day's crash was Lt. Col. Wil- liam Lcflwich of Memphis, Tcnn.. Tennessee's Man of the Year in 1965. The helicopter, a medium-size CII46, crashed in the Quc Son range about 22 miles southwest of Da Nang. The U.S. Command said the cause of the crash was un- known, but other sources said fog and poor visibility apparent- ly were responsible. The wreckage was found on the side of the mountain and all of the bodies were recovered to- day by a Marine ground team landed by helicopters. The ill-fated CII46 had lifted out a small Marine patrol from the Que Son mountains and was reluming lo the unit's base in Da Nang when it got lost in the clouds, field reports said. Anoth- er helicopter following it could not spot the craft and lost radio contact. "The patrol in the Que Son mountains got into said one officer. "One man broke his leg and two more came down with fever. They called back and asked for a heli- copter to lift them out." Leftwich decided to pull out the entire patrol. Informed sources said he had always gone in after his men when there was an emergency, and he was the aboard the 45-foot-long CH46 that was assigned to lift out the team.
