Dozens of Brown University students were arrested after they took over the campus administration building in Providence to demand an end to admissions based on ability to pay. School officials obtained a court order and, after a day-long sit-in, campus police began making arrests at 6 p.m., when the building normally closes. Protesters demanded a "need-blind" admissions policy, by which applicants would be admitted on the basis of qualifications and the university would offer financial aid.

Prostitution charges were dismissed today against two Brown University senior women arrested in an alleged sex-for-hire ring. The attorney general's office dropped the charges against Dana E. Smith, 21, of Avon, Conn., and Rebecca R. Kidd, 21, of Orange, Conn., during a pretrial hearing in Providence District Court. The students were arrested March 6 and charged with loitering for prostitution, a misdemeanor. Each had pleaded innocent to the charge, and neither appeared at the courthouse today.
