FINANCIAL AFFAIRS:
Added 1nvestig1ation

By JIM HECk
The Washtenaw County Board of Supervisors will take
additional steps in their investigation into Sheriff Douglas
Harvey's fiscal policies, The Daily learned last night.
A special committee of the board, chaired by Neal Mast
'Will meet at 2 p.m. today in County Prosecutor William F. Del-
hey's office to formulate and recommend additional action
to be taken by the board.

He said that the action against
Harvey could be in the form of an
attempt to halt the sheriff's salary
and expenses, or a request from
Delhey to bring- purjury charge.

the unneccessary brutality of po-

those exhibited by demonstrators.

Many of the marchers earlier
had heard Sen. Eugene McCarthy
address a large crowd in Grant
Park across from the Hilton.
McCarthy said he could support
neither of the major party candi-
dates running for president.
The Minnesota Senator said he
will direct his efforts to the elec-
tion of Senate candidates who op-
pose U.S. war policy.
"We're going to continue to,

McCarthy said. "I still have a

DALEY DEMO
Inside the convention hall,
hundreds of ' brightly ,colored
signs, all reading "We Love Mayor
Daley" were hoisted in the spec-
tators' section and on the floor.
Chicago Mayor Richard J. Da-
ley, the focus of bitter attacks for
police handling of the Wednesday
demonstrations, was boosted to
the shoulders of the'*Illinois dele-
gates as the crowd roared its ap-
proval.
Some of the gallery demon-
strators said they received passes
into the tight security hall from
their ward committeemen.
On each delegate's seat was a
statement by Daley defending his
administration's action.
"This administration and the
people of Chicago have never con-
doned brutality at any time," his
statement said, "but they will
never permit a lawless violent
group of terrorists to menace the
lives of millions of people."
A more genuinely spontaneous
demonstration followed the show-
ing of a film tribute to the late
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.
Cheering, singing delegates ig-
nored calls for order from the
podicm for 19 minutes. Rhythmic
clapping and chorus after chorus
of "The Battle Hymn of the Re-

Miss You" and "We'll seek your
newer world."

acceptance speech said, "Neither mob violence nor police

Seventy-nine people were arrested, some of them conven-

e~s' protest march

' - By JILL CRABTREE
Ron Brown, former director of
student financial aids at the Uni-
versity of Colorado and a grad-
uate student here, has been rec-
ommended to fill the post of re-
tiring financial aids director Wal-
ter B. Rea.
Brown was chosen by an inter-
viewing committee composed of
students, faculty, and financial
aids office staff. Its recommenda-
tions will be put before the Re-
gents at their September meeting
for final consideration.
An, ad hoc committee of black
and white student calling them-
selves the Committee for the Re-
form of Aid to Students (COM-
RAIDS) had recommended Brown
to the interviewing committee
along with one other possible can-
didate as, "equally acceptable."
The other COMRAIDS candi-
date was reportedly a former di-
rector of financial aids at Indiana
University.
Bill Lombus, one of the origin-
ators of COMRAIDS and a mem-
ber of Graduate Assembly, said
the group was "extremely pleased"
with the appointment
"He was our fist choice," Lom-
bus said. "He is very aware of stu-
dent financial problems and is
Svery progressive. He seemed will-
ing to entertain the idea of stu-
dent policy-making in the aids
office."
During the past summer COM-
RAIDS presented several proposals
for change in the aids office to
interim Vice President for Stu-
dent Services Barbara Newell, to
whom the financial aids office is
responsible.
The proposals'outlined plans for
the, establishment of a tri-partite
policy-making committee with a
heavy student representation.
This committee, Lombus said,
would "set financial aid policy
within the constraints of the Uni-
versity's budget' and. act as a

STUDENTS SE EK POSTS

Regent race
By NADINE COHODAS
The regental elections are
going to be unconventional for
a variety of reasons this year.
For the first time two students
will be challenging both Repub-
lican and Democratic candi-
dates for the two contested
seats on the board. The stu-
dents, Eric Chester and Thomas
R. Copi, were nominated last
week by the Ann Arbor-based
Citizens for New Politics party.
Unlike past elections there

son for running was' that "no
one from the northern two-
thirds of the state from the
Democratic party was running."
Brown said he felt this part of
the state "should have repre-

Observing the recent student-
administration conflicts, Brown
contends the University "should
permit students to have a larger
voice in University policy and
affairs. When I was there we
students had very little to say."
