ADC recipients sit-in

threatens

strike

over

insufficient

aid

By MARY V. WOLTER
An emergency meeting of the
Washtenaw County Board of
Supervisors last night narrowly
averted a violent confrontation
between approximately 30 sheriff's
deputies and an equal number of
welfare recipients sitting-in at the
County Building.
The women, who belong to the
viashtenaw County W e 1 f a r e
Rights Groups, and their children
were protesting what they called
inadequate ' allocations by the
state for clothing and other per-
sonal needs of their children. They
claim the county officials should
compensate for these deficiencieso
The organization represents two
sub-groups - Ypsilanti Welfare
Action and Humanizing Existing
Welfare.
The protesters began their vigil'
at the Social Services office in
the County Bldg. at 11 a.m. yes-
terday after they were denied a
hearing with the supervisors at
their meeting earlier yesterday
morning.
Theademonstrators occupied the
halls and offices of the welfare
departmerit until late afternoon
when Sheriff Douglas J. Harvey
and his deputies assembled on the
building's second floor to plan
direct action against the pro-
testers.1
The deputies moved in swiftly,
forcing open the blocked doorway
of the social services office to
confront the mothers and their
children.
The deputies were withdrawn
an hour later when Harvey told
an emergency meeting to discuss
their complaints.

However, Russel Heister, Uni-
versity personnel officer, said last
night, "There is no possibility of
reaching an agreement Monday."
William Lemmer, attorney for
the University in the negotiations,
said, "The University has received
no word of the strike, and thus
nothing has been proposed to deal
with it."
If the strike were held, dormi-
tory cooks and kitchen personnel,
athletic building attendants and
the other 2,000 non-academic Un-
iversity workers who belong to the
AFSCME, might leave their jobs.
Strikes of public employes are
prohibited by state law.
AFSCME c h i e f negotiator,
Thomas Fitzpatrick, refused last
night to deny that a strike was in
the offing.
AFSCME last month called for
a strike vote and mailed out the
first ballots last Thursday and
Friday.
Unconfirmed reports from dorm-
itory personnel and maintenance
workers s u g g e s t overwhelming
support for the strike proposal.
Though AFSCME officials have
instructed their members, and es-
pecially their officers, to make no
comment on the voting, workers in
South Quadrangle told The Daily
they have been urged to pass the
word, "Contract or Strike."

protests
cancelled
From wire service Rep ts
The city, council of erkeley,
citing violence over the holiday
weekend, yesterday cancelled a
permit for a five-hour street dem-
onstration this Saturday on Tele-
graph Avenue.
"You are going to find a re-
action that you won't be ableto
handle," said Jack Bloom, a rep-
resentative of the sponsoring
group, the Independent Socialist
Club. Bloom spoke at the council
meeting which attracted an over-
flow crowd.
"You're using the acts of a few
individuals to destroy any opposi-
tion," said Bloom. "The people are
not going to take kindly to cutting
off Saturday night. You're going
to have a meeting whether or not
you permit it.",
Gov. Ronald Reagan said in a
Sacramento News Conference yes-
terday that a nationwide "con-
spiracy" of new left elements
prodded disturbances at the Dem-
ocratic National Convention in
Chicago and at Berkeley.
Reagan added that his aftin-
istration planned to take steps "to
see that those planners andthat
conspiracy do not disrupt things in
our state." Reagan contends that
many of the same people demon-
strating in Chicago "managed to
show up" during the recurrent
outbursts at Berkeley.
Telegraph Avenue is a narrow
street lined with small shopsand
bookstores that runs southward
from the University of California
campus in Berkeley.
It was relatively quiet yesterday,
said Police Capt. W. N. Stahr, as
police enforced a "state of civil
disaster" regulations proclaimed
Monday by City Manager William
C. Hanley.
Councilmen, at their meeting,
backed indefinite continuation of
the regulation.
The Hanley regulation is not
called a curfew but does prohibit
loitering in any public places, in-
cluding the university campus, be-
ween 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
It also bans meetings or use of
sound trucks on streets or 'other
public property and assures Ber-
keley police and fire department
assistance under a mutual-aid
pact with nearby communities.
Monday night and early yester-
day, police made 24 arrests,
brng ing} to 55 the total since Friday
night following a rally called to
protest methods used in Chicago
at the Democratic National Con-
vention.
Groups sponsoring the weekend
rally were the Black Panthers, a
militant Negro group; Students
for a Democratic Society, theTn-t
ternational Socialist Association,
the Young Socialist Alliance and
the peace and Freedom Party.
Vice Mayor Wilmont Sweeney
said hoodlums had infiltrated the
protest rally and told councilmen
"the danger has not passed." Po-
lice said some demonstrators were
