aturday night vandals cause
3800 in damage to buildings

Roger Beal has been working
the five to midnight shift as a
janitor in the building since Oc-
tober. "I was thinking of asking
for hazardous duty pay," he said
last night.
Janitors are told to clear out of
the building when it is "under, at-
tack," Beal said. He has cleared
out often since he began the job,
he added.
In addition to smashed windows,
damage in North Hall included
smashed glass cabinets and glass
elevator and classroom doors. Mili-
tary trophies were stolen from the
Pershing Rifle Case, and military

emblems were destroyed with sprayt
from a fire extinguisher.
The vandalism occurred after
the "anti-repression" teach-in
when SDS organized a militant
march to the Washtenaw County
Bldg. to protest the arrest of six
Black Berets.
The berets were arrested in late
summer after a controversial po-
lice raid.
~hanting radical slogans, a
crowd of 450 marched to the Coun-
ty Bldg. and cheered as demon-
strators hoisted a North Vietnam-"
ese flag atop the building's flag-
pole.

"the Abernathy matter is closed."
As U.S. Atty. Thomas Foran at-'

Kunstler walked to the back of the
courtroom and greeted Abernathy
with a warm embrace.
In a lunch-hour press confer-
ence, Abernathy told reporters he
had come to testify about his ac-
tivities as co-chairman of the
National Mobilization Committee
to End the War in Vietnam, and
organizer of the Poor People's
mule train during the 1968 Dem-
ocratic Convention.
He also said he was to ltestify

FOCUS, a national organization
of women dedicated to eliminating
bias against working women, yes-
terday sent a representative to
the .Senate Judiciary Committee
hearings to protest the nomination
of Judge G. Harold Carswell to the
Supreme Court..
Dr. Joanne Gardner, the repre-
sentative from FOCUS, was to
have spoken during yesterday's
hearings but local spokesmen for
FOCUS -said last night they were
not certain whether Dr. Gardner
had an opportunity to speak.
The organization is protesting
the nomination of Carswell be-
cause of his October, 1969 vote to
deny a rehearing in the Phillip
vs. Martin-Marietta Corp. case
in which a woman was denied em-
ployment on the grounds that she
had pre-school children.
Court rules
for eviction
oftenants
Six tenants were evicted from
their Charter Realty apartment
Saturday night in the first case,
of involuntary eviction because of
a court ruling.
The tenants, who had been
withholding their rent on their
apartment at 508 Lawrence since
September, were brought to court
on Jan. 21. At that time the com-
peny sued for possession of the
premises contending that the lease,
which was unsigned by the ten-
ants' parents, was not binding.
The company won the case.
The tenants, Pam Chernoff,
Eve Mayer, Cheri Gay, Kathy
Jeffrey, and two others who re-
fused to give their names, had to1
remove all their possessions and'
leave the apartment by midnight,
which was ten days after the case
was ,decided.
As 'the management company
sued only for possession of the
apartment, the tenants were not
required to pay their back rent.
When questioned whether or
not the company would sue the
tenants for this money in the fu-1
ture, manager Bob Schram said
"I'll let that be a surprise."
The tenants claim they had
considerable trouble with Charteri
Realty in acquiring proper .main-
tenance for their apartment dur-
ing their five month occupancy.
One tenant said, "We didn't get
storm windows until the end of
November, the plumbing is con-
sistently clogged, and the broken
fire escape still hasn't been fixed."
The tenants also claim that no
repairs were made on the apart-
ment'until they started to with-
hold- rent.
Even bathing every day
can't stop it.
Feminine odor starts inter-
nally, and no amount of bath-
ing can remove it. Soap and
water simply can't reach the
area where the odor starts.

The local chapter of FOCUS has
initiated a telephone chain, with
each person calling two other per-
sons and telegraphing a senator.
Both Michigan senators, Phillip
A. Hart and Robert Griffin, are
members of the Judiciary Com-
mittee._
"We feel that there is a real
groundswell of indignation among
women of all ages and political
preferences," spokeswomen Jean
King and Mary Yourd said, "and
we want this indignation to be-
come visible to the men who de-
cide whether Carswell could make
fair decisions for all Americans,
men or women, white or black."
t"Although time is short, we feel
that the Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee needs to be aware of the
indignation women feel over this
nomination," they added.

The code would authorize the
clerk to use the interest paid on
the escrow account to "defray the
costs of providing the escrow ser-
vice." It adds, however, that if
this is insufficient, additional fees,
would be charged.
Councilman James Stephenson
(R-Fourth Ward), who voted
against the ordinance, said "I
think the inevitable result is to
increase the city hall bureau-I
cracy."
Members of the Ann Arbor Ten-
ants Union, who spoke ardently
in the ordinance's behalf at a
public hearing last month, cited
examples of landlords who have
failed to return damage deposits.
The union also contends that an
unfair burden is placed on poor-
er tenants by forcing them to
pay a damage deposit when their
lease begins as well as the first
and last month's rent.

He was ordered to his seat by claimed solidarity with the pro-
the judge, but the prosecution had testers. "I am a hippie and I am
hardly begun to examine its first a yippie," he said.

The committee seeking the
establishment of a University-wide
teaching fellows union will hold
departmental meetings beginning
this week to organize a viable
union in advance of formal legal
recognition by the University.
While the committee plans to
file petitions with the State Labor
Mediation Board ..this Friday, aE
possible jurisdictional challenge by
the University could delay for
"possibly two years" formal rec-
ognition. of a teaching felows
union, says a committee spokes-
man.
Committee members expect the
University to claim that teachingl
fellows do not constitute an ap-
propriate legal bargaining unit.
The departmental meetings will
lead to a mass meeting of teach-
ing fellows Feb. 10, says the
spokesman, at which the structureI
of the union could be decided on
and officers elected.
