Soon GE departed, as did the guardsmen; calm returned until a firebomb went through the window of the Champaign Federal Building. RU rallies restarted protesting Illiac IV, Kunstler was re-invited; failed firebombs were found in Lincoln and Altgeld Halls, but a successful device burned an Air Force recruiting office in Urbana nearly to the ground. President Henry, seeking less demanding work, announced his retirement; Jim Larabee, arrested in the recent riots, declared that worse was yet to come, and a blue-ribbon commission on campus tension agreed, declaring turmoil was not likely to cease while social ills prevailed.
