UIORITIES QUESTION:
Law students BAM discuss
minority admissions proposals

By SUSAN LINDEN
Black Action Movement (BAM)
representatives met yesterday with
law students in a discussion of the
BAM proposals for increased mi-
nority admissions.
BAM member and Student Gov-
ernment Council representative
Darryl Gorman began by recount-
ing the events of last week. He
read the BAM demands and claim-
ed that the Regents action 1 a s t
Thursday insufficiently answered
the demands.

"The black demands have met
only with ambivalence so far,"
Gorman said. In reference to those
students who have expressed sup-
port of blacks' goals but not their
tactics, Gorman said this reveal-
ed "the typical University notion
of thinking that admission to a
problem is equal to solving the
problem."
Gorman asked for a "reordering
of priorities" to make money
available to meet the BAM de-
mands. In response to a question

UAW, Tenants Union
hold eviction protest

By RON RULOFF
An Anti-eviction sit-in sponsored
by the United Auto Workers and
the Ann Arbor Tenants' Union
was held yesterday in the B e I i
Mobile Home Village in Belleville,
five miles east of Ypsilanti.
Thirty-five demonstrators arriv-
ed, at 8:30 a.m. to block the ;remov-
al of the mobile home of Mrs.
Sarah Golden and her four child-
ren. The demonstratorsremained'
until late yesterday afternoon,
when an appeal motion staying ex-
ecution of the evictionrorder was
signed in 'District Court.
The eviction, order had been
served on Mrs. Golden March 12.
She claims the eviction was the
result of a personal dispute with
the park manager, Mr. Ray Lan-

ning, and not because of the vio-
lation of any park regulations on
her part.
Both Lanning and the attorney
for. the park owners refused to
comment on the matter yesterday.
Mrs. Golden's supporters staged
a brief demonstration in the park
beore breaking into groups to hell
members of the Mobile Home
Owner's Association (MHOA) ob-
tain petition signatures supporting
protective legislation for mobile
home owners now pending in the
state legislature.
MHAO President Louis Nigro
claimed that a severe shortage of
trailers lots is the main cause of
the problems confronted by mo-
bile home owners.

on the possible divisive effect of an
all-black student center, the black
students answered that "only this
sort of institution would gave pro-
per recognition to the individual
differences and district cultural
background of blacks."
Prof. Archibald Singham bit-I
terly criticized faculty members
who have not supported the BAM
demands. "I morally condemn the
cowards who signed their names
to a $1200 advertisement in t h e
Ann Arbor News" he said.
"Let them come down from their
plush offices and talk to the stu-
dents. Let them give up their sal-E
aries, let them meet with black
students and give them l e g a l
advice. I am sick of them."
The ad which Singham referred
to appeared in Sunday's Daily and
Ann Arbor News. It condemned
campus disruptions, but signers of
the ad insisted it'was. not directed
at BAM.
Singham was particularly crit-
ical of the national coverage given
to the faculty ad, 'which, he said,
identified it as condemnation by
rational men of irrational student
action.
The last speaker, Al Kaufman,
representing the coalition backing
DAM discussed problems in tryingC
to organize whitestudents to back
the DAM demands, He said that
"whites refuse to be organized un-
less every little category can be
fit into its place. This is very
frustrating"

If you are interested in helping
to defend our planet against the
three greatest enemies of man-
kind - unlinited factional con-
flict potentially resulting in ca-
tastrophic total war, environ-
mental p 0 11 iu t i o n threatening
gradual deterioration of the bio-
sphere, and the pressures of un-
checked population growth -
you can not afford to be with-
out the ideological ammunition
in The Internationalist Per-
spec tive.
If you are tired of the partici-
patory cultural exchange games
of the New Left, the irrelevance
of pacifism, and the bankruptcy
of liberalism, you would not want
to miss the ideas in The Inter-
nationalist Perspective. If you
want to preview the concepts of
the next century instead of hear-
ing sterile repetitions of the last
century's cliches, you can find
solid food for thought in the
pages of The Internationalist
Perspective.
Our literature would be of par-
ticular interest to students of
philosophy and to all sincerely
concerned about the problems of
wvar and peace in this techno-
logical era.

Tom Rush seems. to have
made a career, of exposing talented
new song writers. For instance, he
sang Joni Mitchell's songs years
before she recorded them herself.
He also picked up on a young writer
named James Taylor, whom The
Beatles later signed to Apple.

their lyrics, and Tom's style brings
out all they have to offer.
His album also includes a

"Wild Child"a sensitive reading of
