Police also have warrants for three more people and say
they may have other warrants today. They reported no
further incidents of trashing last night.
Twenty-three persons have been arrested thus far in the
two incidents Wednesday. Among those arrested yesterday
was Richard Feldman, a prominent member of Students for

opposing an officer, a high misdemeanor, but was released






End to job
recruiti n
The Radical College, a nAv or-
ganization composed of radical
members of the faculty and non-
academic staff, yesterday demand-
ed that President Robben Flem-
ing immediately suspend jobi re-
cruiting at the University.
The college, which has about
70 members, also called for a
moratorium of classes to allow the
University community to form-
ulate a policy on the University's
involvement with corporations and
the military.
In a presentation atf the 'he-
gents open hearing yesterday, the
college also demanded t h a t
--"Endorse Central S t u d e n t
Judiciary (CSJ) as the only ap-
propriate University body for
dealing with student violations of
non-academic University rules,"
-"Reorder University priorities
with respect to minority group
The demands were presented in
response to Wednesday night's
disturbances near City Hall.
Following the presentation,
members of the college discussed
their demands with Fleming.
Psychology Prof. Richard Mann,
a member of the group, said that
the president seemed to inclined
to go along with the proposal for
a campus-wide debate. Fleming
was unavailable last night for
comment on the demands.
Earlier this month, after the
organization was formed, it is-:
sued a statement criticizing the
administration for taking what
they said were "repressive" meas-
ures against Students for a Den#
ocratic Society.
At that time, the administration
had announced its intention to
proscute SDS before CSJ, and seek
a withdrawal of the militant
group's recognition as a student
Mann said last night, "In the
name of punishing SDS members
and SDS as a group, they are un-
raveling a whole student judiciary
system and destroying it" by not
allowing all disruption cases to be
tried only by CSJ.
According to history Prof. Ar-
thur Mendel, the demands were
"drawn up by a general consen-
sus" among about 50 members
present at a meeting in Guild
House. -
Mann said that the college will'
meet at 8:00 p.m Sunday in the
East Quad dining room to discuss
the four demands and form "ac-
tion plans for the immediate fu-

on $500 bail.
Feldman was also arrested Feb.
9 on charges of creating a con-
tention during a block-in of the
recruiter from DuPont Corp. Jan.
26 in West Engineering Bldg.
Although a rally was called for
yesterday noon on. the diag to
consider further action, the crowd
of about 200 quickly dispersed
without making any plans.
Later last night, an SDS spokes-
mnan announced after the group's
meeting that SDS is planning ac-
tion nest Thursday against the
re'ruiter from Dow Chemical. The
group has not decided what type
of action they will take, however.
SDS also gave its support to the
Black Action" Movement's (BAM)
demands for. increased minority
admissions and aid and to the
BAM rally scheduled for 3 p.m.
today on People's Plaza.
At about the time the meeting
ended, two vans carrying about 20
Ann Arbor policemen drove up S.
University Ave. toward the shop-
ping; area between E. University
and Washtenaw.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter
Krasny said police had beeri sent
to the area because there had
been reports that a group was
planning to march up the street
to trash store fronts.
Police declined to comment fur-
ther on the amount of manpower
they had stationed at City Hall
or on what areas and buildings
near campus they had placed
maximum security.
Krasny also said yesterday that
over $5,000 worth'of windows were
broken during Wednesday night's
march, with most of the damage
at the South University and Med-
ical Center branches of the Ann
Arbor Bank.
The bank did not have its own
estimate yesterday, however.

last night blasted President Rob-
ben Fleming as "the bottleneck"
preventing adoption of , new re-
gental bylaws, and agreed to at-
tempt to submit the bylaws
directly to the Regents.
Council said, in a unanimous
resolution, that it would first
meet with the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
the top faculty body, and then
submit to the Regents the draft
of the bylaws that was approved

last summer by SGC and Senate
SGC condemned Fleming for hisI
argument that he could not select 1
a new vice president for students
services until the roles of the vice
president and a proposed student
services policy board were agreed

Van Der Hout cleared
of contention for sit-in

The question of control of policy+
in the Office of Student Services
is one of several issues involved
in the controversial bylaws. Others
include the question of University-
wide conduct rules, the authority
of student judiciaries and the
powers of SGC.
Under the student-faculty by-
law proposal, policy for the office
would be set by a student-domi-
nated policy board.
Last night's SGC action follows
the breakdown last week of nego-j
tiations, between student and fac-
ulty representatives and Fleming.
"Fleming is probably working to
prevent the adoption of the orig-
inal bylaw proposals and is ignor-
ing the year-long work of the by-
law committee," said SGC mem-
ber Bob Nelson.
In other action, Council unani-
mously voted to publish a reply to
a widely - circulated statement
written by the University admin-
istration on Wednesday's protest
of a General Electric Corp. re-
cruiter. The demonstration led to
a violent clash between demon-
strators and police. At least 14;
