ROTC blast
Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched
for clues yesterday afternoon in the bombing of North Hall,
the 'administrative center and classroom building for tfie
University's ROTC program.
An explosive placed under a staff car parked next to the
building Sunday night detonated, igniting the building and
shattering one wall and several dozen windows.
Deputy Police Chief Harold Olson said yesterday he did
not know what type of explosive had been used, and that
there were no suspects at this time.
-He added that at this point all the police are able to do
is study the area of the bombing to discover what was used
and where it could have been
obtained. a

complaints about Kozminski's up-

says there is no certificate of

means there are so many housing

stipulates the building should not
be open except under special cir-
cumstandes, such as when emer-
gency housing is being provided

City Council

City Council at the request of
Mayor Robert Harris, has taken
the first step toward easing ten-
sions between Ann A r b o r resi-
dents and the police.
At a special meeting Thursday
night council authorized the cre-
ation of an ad hoc committee pro-
posed by Harris to study police-
community relations.
The mayor emphasized that the
committee's existence does not im-
ply lack of confidence in local po-
lice agencies, and City Adminis-
trator Guy Larcom.said the com-
mittee should not be viewed as a
'citizens' review board."
Harris' resolution said, "Recent
local incidents between police and
black citizens indicate that prompt
action to alleviate community
tensions is necessary."
T h e seven-member committee
will study "both t h e immediate
a n d underlying causes of these
tensions" and will make recom-
mendations to council for appro-
priate action.

Supreme Court ruled yester-
day that privately operated
public accomodations cannot
practice racial segregation by
calling themselves clubs and
admitting only whites on pay-
ment of a nominal fee.
The 7-1 decision put hundreds
of recreation areas and other f a-
cilities under the ban. But it did
not extend to the last of the all-
white bastions: exclusive social
and country clubs which are de-
finitely private.

facilities and a snack bar.
Despite its name and a 25 cent
membership fee, Justice William
J. Brennan Jr. said for the major-
ity, Lake Nixon is not a private
club. "It is simply a business op-
erated for a profit with none of
the attributes of self-government
and member-ownership tradition-
ally associated with private clubs,"
he said.
