    You probably should have read the page you were trying to download as it says:

    Files marked with lock are not available for download.
    And all the files there have a lock icon next to them.

    This archive got marked recently as "high bandwidth":
    "Items in this collection consume an unusually large amount of archive.org's outbound bandwidth and may be subject to various limiting schemes."
    And as result, now it's required to log in order to be able to download this archive files, sorry about inconvenience, can't change that :S ...
    The reason they are locked. You will need to log in. Is on their front page.

    That being said if you can get a list of filenames you should be able to wget in a for loop or something.
