Someone put anti-President Bush stickers and fliers in abundance in various areas of the Social Sciences building, 1145 E. South Campus Drive, sometime Wednesday night, reports stated.
An employee in the building said when she arrived at work at 9 a.m. Thursday there were anti-Bush stickers on several hallway clocks. She said when she left the building Wednesday at 5 p.m. the stickers were not there, reports stated.
A custodial employee in the building also said she found stickers on hall clocks, classroom clocks, on stall doors in restrooms and in elevators near interior buttons, reports stated.
The stickers were fluorescent green with black lettering advertising a message about driving out the Bush regime. They also advertise a walkout on Nov. 2 with a gathering at the Alumni Plaza, reports stated.
She also said she found fliers matching the stickers duct-taped to every seat in Auditorium 100 in the building, reports stated.
The fliers looked the same as the stickers and advertised the "Refuse and Resist" organization, reports stated.
The custodial employee said there are about 700 seats in the auditorium, and it took her two hours to clean up all the fliers, reports stated.
Police also found the propaganda on vending machines and emergency light boxes in stairwells and hallways, reports stated.

Three people got into an argument Thursday evening in front of Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd., because they were all trying to sell extra tickets to the show, reports stated.
Centennial Hall staff said an elderly man got into an argument with a young couple because they stood in his way while he was trying to sell his extra ticket, reports stated.
The man said he was standing in front of the ticket booth for about an hour when the young couple came up and stood in his way, trying to sell their extra ticket, reports stated.
When the elderly man told the couple he was there first and asked them to move, according to staff, the younger man started using profanities and pushed the elderly man against a wall, reports stated.
The elderly man swung back, but did not make contact, and he told police he didn't wish to press charges, reports stated.
