FU hosts national co

By BOB SCHREINER
The Ann Arbor Tenants Union
(AATU) yesterday hosted the
opening of the first annual Inter-
national Conference on "Students
and the Tenants' Rights Move-
me.±t," at the Michigan Union.
To send names

(Continued from Page 1)
scholarship' aid is contained in
section 8 of the state Higher Edu-
cation Appropriations Act of 1969.
Specifically, it prohibits the award-
ing of state .aid to a- student con-
victed of "disorderly conduct, vio-
lence to a person, or damage to
property.. while participating in
any disorder, disruption of the ad-
ministration of or the rendering
of services or giving instruction
(at a college or university)."
There had been speculation that
the University might challenge the
constitutionality of the law on
the grounds that it contradicted a
provision in the state constitution
which grants the Regents "general
supervision" of the University and
control and direction of all ex-
penditures from the institutions'
funds.
However, Curnmiskey said in his
opinion that he believes "the direc-
tion to presidents of institutions to
report facts which are a matter of
public record to other departments
of the state is not an invalid con-
dition."
According to Fleming, Prof.
Israel's opinion, which was not re-
leased yesterday, concurred w i t h
Cummiskey's.
"We will therefore comply with
(the statute)," Fleming told the
assembled Regents, "unless you
direct us to challenge the law."
The Regents, however, indicat-
ed no objection. "That's a good re-
port," said Regent William Cud-
lip (R-Detroit). "Let it stay
there."
Earlier this month, Fleming de-
clined to.forward the names of re-
cipients of federal scholarships
who were convicted in the LSA
trials- to the Department of
Health, Education, and Welfare.
DAILY OFFICIAL
BULLETIN

The conference, which is being
co-sponsored by the AATU and
the National Tenants Organiza-
tion (NTO), will continue through-
out the weekend. The AATU is
seeking affiliation with the NTO.
About 150 persons registered for
the meeting in the afternoon, with
many more expected to arrive this
morning. The tenants issue is
bringing people together from as
far away as California, Texas,
Colorado and Massachusetts, and
as close as Chicago and Detroit.
The majority of those attending
the conference represent student
tenant groups thoughout the Unit-
ed States and Canada. But there
are also several independent in-
ner-city unions present, as well as
the executive staff of the National
T e n a n t s Organization which
claim 140 member groups in 40
cities around the country.
After registration yesterday the
participants broke up into groups
and held workshops on various
topics. A low cost housing work-
shop featured three radical archi-
tects who discussed the physical
implications of housing.
Stu Katz, AATU organizer, said
the purpose of the workshops is to
"cover every conceivable aspect of
housing."
"We want to help people who
don't have any idea where to be-
gin, as well as set up a forum
for discussion," he said.
Katz was pleased with the open-
ing session. "We're getting sone
really good ideas down," he said.
"These workshops are absolutely
terrific,"
Anthony R. Henry, executive di-

local level will not get the job
done. The people realize that what
is needed at this point is consoli-
dated power," Henry said.
Saturday's program begins with
workshops on the third floor of
the Michigan Union. The times
for the workshops are 9:30-11
a.m., 1-3 p.m. and 3:15-5:15 p.m.
At 6:30 p.m. the keynote speak-
er, Jesse Gray, will give a speech
and, lead discussion. Gray is the
New York rent strike leader who
is challenging Adam Clayton
Powell for his congressional seat.

The demonstration at the UGLI
marked the second time in 241
hours that books had been dis-
placed. The UGLI was closed early
Thursady night at 10:30 due to a
similar disruption, but yesterday's
disturbance, according to library
officials, was more extensive.
"The third floor is very grim.
You can't even walk down the1
aisles," said Rose Faucher, head
librarian at the UGLI. "The backs
of many of the books have been
damaged and three catalogue
drawers were broken."

revolutionaries like jail.' We have
tears in our eyes."
"We were on trial because we,
tried to wake up America," he
said.
Dellinger spoke for 20 minutes.;
He criticized U.S. policy on Viet-'
nam.

same event.
The committee was quite active
when first formed, Larcom says,
but it died slowly as attorneys
warned their clients not to say
anything if there were criminal
charges against them. Thus, when
the complaintant faces charges of
his own, he is effectively unable
to bring a complaint against the
police for fear of prejudicing his
own case.

As noted, the city's 'tribunal]
doesn't promise much in the way
of redress for injured citizens.-
Another way that takes as longj
and is much more expensive is]
civil litigation, probably for assault1
and battery. The sole advantage to
a civil suit'is that if you win, you
probably win big.
Notes law Prof. John Jackson,
who heads a police-community
relations committee of the local1
American Civil Liberties Union,
"You have to get your own at-{
torney. It is costly to bring suit,
and a person of ordinary means
simply can't do it."
Jackson noted four other pos-
sibilities: Lodging a complaint
with the police; getting prose-'
cuting authorities to make a,
criminal case; complaining to
supervisory authorities; going to
the press to get publicity.a
Each has serious drawbacks. Go-'
ing to the police themselves is not
all that bad, Jackson says. "It is
not fair to assume nothing will
happen. Co-operation has b e e n
assured (by local units), although1
it is very hard to document," heI
concedes,

But if the police were conscien-
tious at self-regulation, the prob-
lems still wouldn't be solved.
"Even if the police were per-
fect, they would still lack the con-
fidence of the citizens," says the1

torney to act is equally hopeless.
They rely on the police and must
work with them constantly, and soj
would tend to avoid offending'
them.
Going to supervisory authorities
poses the danger of politics ;e-
placing justice as the criterion for
decisions. And in the case of local

authorities, they are simply not
empowered to bring disciplinary:
action against offending officers.
The virtue of publicity, Jackson
says, is not that it will do the pro-
testing individual any good, but
that it may make both the police
and the community aware of the
problem.
Jackson sees the solution inj
