Student Government Council Executive Vice President
Marc Van Der Hout yesterday walked out of the Senate As-I
sembly committee which is studying the role of ROTC onG

committee with half student, half faculty membership.:A<

ROTC. Only two members are students.
Van Der Hout said he would not participate in a com-
mittee which did not have equal representation of students.
He explained that the ROTC issue is of University-wide con-
cern and should not be studied by a faculty committee.

Some 400 Ann Arbor police, Washtenaw County Deputies
and Michigan State Police cleared a ten-block area around
South University Ave. early this morning arresting at least
30 people.
Hospitals reported treating at least four persons.
Dr. Edward Pierce, a former chairman of the Ann Arbor
Democratic Party and a one-time mayoral candidate, was
arrested by two Washtenaw Countydeputies who dragged him
about 5 yards with the seat of his pants on the cement.
The hour-long action began at 12:45 a.m. after police had
left the South University area at 11,:30.
Earlier in the evening some 200 policemen from f i v e
agencies lined South University for lour hours amid a

peaceful atmosphere.
Det. Lt. Eugene Staudenmaier
said _ the police had been with-
drawn in the hopes that the esti-
mated 700 people remaining on
the streets "would be sensible and
go home."
But about 100 people soon
swarmed into the street at South
University and Church,. impeding
the. flow of traffic. A smaller
group of about 10 people hindered
traffic one block down at East
University and South University.
Another 500 people remained on
the sidewalks.
The police action at 12:45 a.m.
began as two groups of 200 polio
each moved in on South Univer-
sity, one group coming from South
Forest and the other mqving In

carried

Those coming from the direction
of South State were mostly state
police, but included some Ann Ar-
bor police. At about 1 a.m., about
200' people remained at the corner
of South University and East Uni-
versity.
Ann Arbor Deputy Chief Harold
Olson gave the crowd a five min-
ute warning. Many of the people
cried out "Where can we go?"
Most of the people left by going
down East University.
After five minutes, the police
coming up from State Street di-
vided the remaining people into
two groups and forced them in op-
posite directions along East Uni-
versity.
The police slowly, forced the
people at least two blocks from
South University.
a Sheriff's deputies later turned
down Church, arresting several
people. Meanwhile, the state and'
Ann Arbor police continued to'
push down East University in both
directions.
At approximately 1:45 a de-
tachment of about 30 Washtenaw
C d u n t y deputies swept down
Church St. They searched alley
ways' and small side streets for
stragglers. They made about four
more arrests. 1
All the police had left the area
by 1:50 a.m.

Harris
By CHRIS STEELE
A crowd of 2500 people ga-
thered at Jefferson Plaza in
front of the Administration
Bldg. for a band concert last
night organized and monitor-
ed by University officials and
professors.
University spokesmen said th e
hard rock concert which began at
8:30 p.m. was originally scheduled
for the Diag but was moved be-
cause that location was too close
to tense South University Ave.
University administrators r e -
portedly felt the crowds that
would gather on the Diag for the
concert would 'reinforce those who
regrouped at the scene of Tues-
day night's disorder.
Before the concert began, mem-
bers of the White Panther Party
circulated in the crowd collecting
bail money for the people arrested
Tuesday night.
During the rally some 150 Uni-
versity professors acted as moni-
tors to direct traffic and keep
order during the concert. There
were no uniformed police at the
concert.
Mayor Robert J. Harris and
President Robben Fleming both
came to the band stand and spoke
to the crowd. Harris continued to
defend, as he did in his official
statement released early yester-
day, the actions of the Ann Ar-
bor police force.
However, Harris made clear that
he was not defending 'the actions
of the county sheriff's department
or the other law'° enforcement
agencies which were brought in
Thrsday night from Monroe and
Oakland counties and state police
units.
When several members of the
crowd shouted condemnations of
Harvey and asked what the mayor
would do about him, Harris said,
"I share your concern a b o u t
Sheriff Harvey."
But, he continued, "There is
"unothing I know that I can do
about that problem."
Although Harris made no direct
statement during or after the rally
on the the conduct of Sheriff
Douglas Harvey and his forces, it
was very clear he was far from
pleased. But Harris emphasized
several times his own inability to
control Harvey, who is legally free
to do as he pleases in the county.
In response to Student Govern-
mentrCouncil president Marty
McLaughlin's assertion that Har-
ris was "turning the city into an
armed camp for 20 feet of as-
phalt," the mayor said the city
could not allow a few people to
take over a street. "The street is
'there for all the people," said
Harris.
Harris added, however, that he
would call for the formation of a
committee to study the problems
of South University at the City
Council meeting next Monday.

Also arraigned were: Robert W.
Putnam, 22; Nicholas C. Bertoni,
28; Mary Jane McCully, 18; Scott
Paul Robinson, 20; Mike W. De-
vine, 21; Stephen P. Unger, 22:

Fadden, 23; Vincent C. Johnson,
