Dancing, fireworks
follow police incident
Several hundred people barricaded a block on S. Univer-
sity Ave. between S. Forest and Church Streets for about
three hours last night and enjoyed an evening of dancing,
drinking, fireworks and motorcycle stunts.
The festivities reportedly began at about 10 p.m. as about
100 people - mostly members of Trans Love Energies and the
White Panthers Party "hassled" a policeman, forcing him to
leave the scene.
The policeman had reportedly been attempting to give
a ticket to a person on a motorcycle who was riding quickly,
and doing "wheelies" - riding on the back wheel only.
A crowd, which was estimated during most of the next
three hours at up to 700 people, soon gathered on the block.








The block was barricaded at
bothends with cars, garbage
Taube cans, wooden planks'and
other easily accessible objects.

man, was arrested by Ann Arbor

U.S. Court of Appeals ruled
yesterday that landlords must
sue tenants individually to
collect back rent, even when
they have banded together for
organized rent strikes and put
rent money in escrow.
The decision may set an, im-
portant precedent for the Ann
Arbor rent strike, which is cur-
rently facing a conspiracy suit
brought by seven landlords who
claim the strike is a conspiracy to
violate future and existing leases.
The Washington decision gave
broad protection to the rent strike
