     Students Flay Teachers' Ouster:  Photo at left shows a view of the 300 students who yesterday gathered outside the office of Harry N. Wright, acting president of City College, to protest the suspension of 11 more members of the college faculty and staff.  The spontaneous demonstration occurred following a protest meeting called by the Peace Assembly Committee, sponsors of the anti-war strike today.  The 10 A.M. class of Dr. Walter Scott Neff, chairman of the New York American Peace Mobilization, and one of those suspended, went on strike against the action.  Photo at right shows students demonstrating outside Hunter College, 68th Street and Park Avenue, as the Board of [Higher] education was meeting Monday night.  The pickets demanded reinstatement of suspended instructors.
