Confrontation on South University Ave. was narrowly
averted last night as Mayor Robert Harris ordered police to
By 1:28 a.m. there were only 75 people left on South
University, most on the block between South Forest and
Church. Traffic was flowing freely on South University and
neighboring streets. At 2 a'm. only about 30 people remained
on the entire length of South University.
But at various times during the evening the crowd of up
to 600 swelled into the streets. Traffic was not completely
closed off, however. There were scattered incidents of bottle
throwing and one fight broke out.
No uniformed police were on the street at any time, although
120 Ann Arbor and 30 state police were alerted a.d stationed nearby
Mayor Harris came to South University twice last night, both
times urging people to get off the streets and go home..
In addition, Harris said Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny
would not bring in police without word from him.
He also said Washtenaw County Sheriff Douglas Harvey had
agreed not to come in, but noted the sheriff had the right to come in
whenever he chose to do so under the state constitution.
"We're very grateful. Everyone's been very cooperative," Harris
said late last night.
Harris explained to a group of people on the sidewalk that "we
want to keep Sheriff Harvey out of operation."
At least two county deputy patrol cars were seen cruising the
area last night.
Skip Taube and other members of the White Panther Party were
also helping to clear the street. Taube warned the crowd that
the police "would either arrest everyone or bust our heads in" unless'
Several University professors heli ed direct traffic, including his-
tory professors Arthur Medel, Shaw Livermore and Gerhard Wein-
berg; Dr. Albert Wheeler of the Medical School; and James O'Neill,
chairman of the Romance languages department.
The tensest moment of the night miay have been at about 11 p.m.
when many of the crowd who had been gathering all night moved
into the streets.
Two members of the God's Children motorcycle gang moved into
the street and yelled to the crowd to join them. The street was mo-
mentarily closed by a large group of people who moved in:
However, cars which came down the street five minutes later were
able to get through slowly.
Harris then arrived and began walking the street trying to get
people to leave.
City Administrator Guy Larcom, Jr. and Assistant City Admin-
istrator Don Borut were also on the street with Harris.
During the night rumors that the police were about to clear the
street contiiued to circulate.
At 11:30 a.m. Diana Farmer, who said she was entering the
University in the fall, stood up on a can in the street and told people
the police were on the way and "had the right to shoot if they want
to."She later said she obtained the information from a police band
The crowd began to diminish slightly after she spoke.
At 11:45 Taube was also, teHing people to leave. Shortly after
