VS. COMMISSIONERS:
Group threatens suitj
to bring Harvey aid

Supporters of Sheriff Douglas
Harvey are threatening lawsuits
against each member of the
county Board of Commissioners
unless the board provides Harv-
ey with legal aid in a $200,000
lawsuit against him.
One effect of a suit against each
commissioner would be to force
the board to decide if its members
could be defended by the prosecu-
tor's office. In refusing" to h e lp
Harvey, the board had maintain-
ed the county has no obligation to
defend personal lawsuits, noting
that the suit against Harvey has
been brought against him person-
ally as well as against the office
of sheriff.
Eight men are suing Harvey for
haircuts they received last Febru-
ary in jail which, they claimed
were excessively short. Besides the
$200,000 they are suing the sheriff
for, .the men are asking the U.S.
Congress
approves
pay hikes
(ContirtUed from Page 1)
struck and now we have a pay
bill before us that makes no pro-
vision to pay for it. We're being
badgered."
Complained Rep. H. R. Gross
(R-Iowa), to his colleagues: "They
fashioned a hoop one week ago
down on the other end of Penn-
sylvania Avenue and you are
jumping through it."
Rep. Charles H.' Wilson (D-
Calif), said the across-the-board
6 per cent for all employes would
amount to a $300-to-450 raise for
the postal employes whose plight
it is supposed to ease while boost-
ing pay for some House employes
$1,000 to $1,500. "It just isn't
right," Wilson said.
But while oponents on one side
complained Congress was ap-
proving a pay raise it may not pay
for, Rep. Wiliam D. 'ord, (D-
Mich), said Congress was "walk-
ing Into a trap" that might com-
mit it to a further 8 per cent raise
for postal employes in July and
approval of revenue-raising meas-
ues "on a script written by the
President."
"I'm serving notice right now,"
Ford said, "that I'm willing to
listen to the proposals that come
up but this is the last time ;'in
going to accept legislation written
someplace else outside of Con-
gress."
GET YOUR MA I
:Want Adi

District Court in Detroit to bar
Harvey from cutting any more
hair at the jail.
Cmsr. 0. Herbert Ellis, chair-
man of the board, told the repre-
sentatives from a group of Harv-
ey supporters to make a formal
presentation before the board dur-
ing the public participation por-
tion of Wednesday's meeting. Al-
though the commissioners say the
men remained at the meeting, no
presentation was made.
The subject of providing de-
fense for Harvey came up twice
during Wednesday's board meet-
ing. The first time, the matter was
dropped when none of the com-
missioners who voted against giv-
ing Harvey help was willing to
move to reconsider the matter in
light of Harvey's report of the
haircutting incident.
The second time, the b o a r d
defeated a motion, 6-5, to have a
letter addressed to Ellis,. t h e
chairman of the Board of Com-
missioners, discussed by the entire
board. The letter, from the De-
troit law firm Prebenda; Preben
da, and Prebenda, informed t h e
board that the firm intended to
provide Harvey with legal held,
Columbia University's newly ap-
pointed next president, William J.
Supporters of Sheriff Harvey
are not about to drop the subject.
Beverly Couch, chairman of the
recently created "Buck Up Your
Sheriff Committee," has announcr
ed a mass rally will be held at
Pioneer High School at 7:30 p.m.
April 28, with Harvey one of the
speakers.

'Somebody'
characters
cast well
(Continued from Page 2)
with drug-inducing daydreams
of being a jazz drummer.
The Shanty Mulligan subplot
is most interesting. Johnny
won't let Shanty forget that he
has taken him in "when none
of the honkies around here
would." Neither will he let him
be - be black, that is, and have
more soul than Johnny. Cora, a
black practical nurse ("rbody's
maid"),' with matriarchal incli-
nations, tenders Shanty, loves
him enough to take care of him
and to see to it that he gets a
set of drums. Johnny's sardonic
response 'is, "This bitch is go-
ing to turn .you white."
The're are t o o many other
threads in No Place to be Some-
body to pick them all up in one
review, but it is noteworthy that
none is irrelevant. The thing
is also c a s t remarkably well,
f o r everyone looks absolutely
right, and style in this play is
five-eights of the matter. Ron-
nie Thompson is fine in the part
of Shanty, keeping a constant
rhythmic motion and a vacant-
eyed look. Nick Lewis gives a
good hard-nosed performance
as Mike Maffucci, a Maffioso
ringleader, and Marge Eliot as
Cora manages to convey a per-
fect type without ever becoming
dull on th6 stage. The dark sa-
foon set, which makes you feel
that there you do sit in a Vil-
lage bar, is by Michael David-
son.
