Instead of immediate action,
most speakers urged students to
organize.
"We must build a new white
radical movement," said New Poli-
tics Party Congressional candi-
date Burt Garskoff, "We must
build support and reach more stu-
dents."
He .urged the rally to "get over

"It's our fight," Garskoff ex-
plained, "it's our lives, its our
future, it's our bodies."
The rally ended at 9:30 p.m.
and as students broke up into four
groups - McCarthy supporters,
Voice-SDS members, Mobilization
members and New Politics mem-
bers.
The McCarthy group decided to
push a write-in campaign for the
Minnesota senator. The o t h e r
groups discussed the implications
of local events and possibilities
for future action. No specific
plans were made beyond those for
today's rally.
Last night's rally was originally
scheduled as a teach-in on police
brutality in Chicago, but speakers
preferred to relate their remarks
to the local crisis.

statement
Those of us who submitted to the arrests of Sept. 5 in the
Washtenaw City-County Bldg. did so because of our support of
the ADC mothers' demands that the minimum clothing need of
their children be met.
We supported them then, we support them now, and we
will continue to support them until these needs are met.

A demand for increased wel-
fare by Washtenaw County
mothers has triggered arrests,
demonstrations and , heated
controversy.
What the mothers really
want was expressed yesterday
by Mrs.- Shirley Haywood,
chairman of Ypsilanti Wel-
fare Action.
"The welfare mothers' group
wishes -to make clear its posi-
tion regarding the need for a
supplemental welfare grant for
the purchase of school clothing
for our children and our at-
tempts to obtain these grants:
"The amount of ADC assist-
ance which we regularly re-
ceive, no matter how carefully
budgeted, simply will not
stretch to cover the purchase of
school clothing for our child-
ren. This is because the ADC
grant is based upon the cost
of living in 1960-not the cost
of living in 1968-and because
the cost of living in Washte-
naw County is abnormally
high.
"We want our children to go
to school. We recognize that
the education of our children is
the way to end poverty. But we
want our children to be able to
go to school with the dignity
and self-confidence that re-

spectable clothing permits.
"Therefore, each of the ap-
proximately 40 of us has care-
fully prepared a statement of
the minimum clothing needs
of each of our children. Over
the past summer, these state-
ments were submitted to our
caseworkers together with the
request that the necessary sup-
plemental grant be-authorized.
"In each case, we were flatly
rejected.
"The key to the problem,
we were told, lay with the
County Board of Supervisors
which has authority to appro-
priate the additional sums to
the general relief fund neces-
sary to meet our reasonable re-
quests.
"Since Thursday, August 29,
one week ago, we have been at-
tempting to meet with the
Board of Supervisors to pre-
sent our case. We are citizens
with a grievance. We have a
problem which has become an
emergency through no fault of
ours, and which requires emer-
gency action, We therefore
went as citizens to our court
house to meet with out duly-
elected representatives.
"The response has been eva-
sion and stalling and consistent
harassment of women and

children in their own court
house by helmeted and armed
sheriff's deputies.
"Promises have been made to
us, and then not kept. Under-
standings have been reached
and then denied. We want no
more than to put our children
in school. We ask no more than
fair and prompt consideration
of our requests. Instead, we are
referred to committees, told
legal meetings must be held,
limited in the numbers of re-
presentatives we may have,
told that a committee doesn't
want to meet With us after
5:00 p.m. and offered a stop-
gap solution with promises of
further meetings at some un-
defined time in the future.
"While we are meeting as
peaceful and orderly citizens,
we are surrounded by sneering
and snickering police officers,
as if to remind us that we are
not really citizens like everyone
else.
"We are resolved to carry
this issue to its conclusions.
This is for our children and
their dignity and their future.
Stalling and intimidation will
not make us or the problem go
away. We want to be reasonable
and peaceful. We ask only that
Washtenaw County let us be."
