IncensedI Audience
Blocks Officer's Exit
But Violenice Avoidled
By CLARENCE FANTO
Managing Editor
and ROGER -RAPOPORT
The Ann Arbor police halted the
showing of "Flaming Creatures"
at Cinema Guild last night and
seized the film on grounds that it
was "obscene."
About 100 students subsequently
marched to the city hall in ten-
degree weather and staged a sit-
in at the police station lobby to
protest.
The case is scheduled to go be-
fore the county prosecutor today,
and he may bring formal charges
against Cinema Guild.
Capacity Crowds
Lieut. Eugene Staudenmeier,
chief of the Anil Arbor Police
DetectivessBureau .eviewed the
movie during the 7 o'clock per-
formance as part of a capacity
crowd of 300 in the Architecture
Auditorium. He left the ador-
a tium about 8 P.m after the vivid
depiction of a rape scene, entered
the second floor projection booth
and seized the film.
Staudenmeier said he took the
film, which had been playing
about 20 minutes because a "mis-
demeanor had beey committed be-
fore a police officer."
The police officer was reported-
ly acting on a formal complaint
filed earier this week by adAr-
chitecture School professor who
contended the film was obscene.
The profensor had never seen the
movie.
The incensed audience blocked
Staudenneier's exit from the pro-
jection booth for a short time.
r Don't Be Afraid'
When the way cleared Stauden-
meier hesitated before setting
out into the hostile crowd. "in
not leaving until you get all those
people out of the way." he told
CinemanGuild officials.
"Oh, comeon," Assistant to the
Vice-President for University Re-
lations Jack Hamilton told Stau-
denme-er. "You know-sticks and
stones."
Staudenmeier rushed down the
staircase to a chorus of boos and
insults from the crowd.
There was no violence, although~
a compact police squad car was
kicked by several persons in the
crowd as it drove away.
March on City Hall
Then crowd which gathered in
the police station lobby of City
H{all demanded an explanation for
the ;confiscation of the film.
"I declared it was obscene be-
causedof my previous experience,"
said Staudenmeier.
About 10 students sat-in for
I about four hours at the police de-
partent lobby. The students had
all gone home by early this morn-
ing.
'Your Responsibility'
University Vice-President for
Student Affairs Richard L. Cut-
ler had told Cinema Guild leaders
Tuesday afternoon, "You know
you're responsible for anything
that happens tomorrow and the
University Isn't."

The Cinema Guild ordered
"Flaming Creatures" from New
York City, according to chairman
Ellen Frank, '68. The film has
been banned in New York City
and in Amsterdam.
The film was delivered from
New York by freight to avoid pos-
sible difficulty with federal postal
regulations, Miss Frank said.
When the film arrived, it was
screened by the Cinema Guild ad-
visory board, which decided the
film had "redeeming social value"
and considerable artistic merit,
she said.
'Not Dehumanization'
"I've seen it and it's good," said
Miss Frank. "My definition of
