A three-way showdown among County
Sheriff Douglas Harvey, City Hall and
Sunday rock concert-goers appeared im-
minent yesterday as Harvey pledged his
deputies will move in on future concerts
and "enforce the law."
Harvey charged "local politicians"_ _
Mayor Robert Harris and City Adminis-
trator Guy Larcom-have prevented Ann
Arbor police from enforcing city laws at
concerts and said he will exercise his
jurisdiction under state laws to make ar-
The sheriff's attack followed reports
that drug, alcohol and indecent exposure
laws were broken at Sunday's West Park
"There will be no pot smoking, no booz-
ing, no sexual acts and no profanity-or
my department will take action," said
Harvey. He said the State Police and

sheriffs' departments in Oakland and other
counties have promised to provide men
and equipment.
Harvey's declaration -- first announced
Monday night-sparked a conflict be-
tween his department and the city police,
which assumes authority for enforcing
Ann Arbor ordinances.
Both the sheriff's department and the
city police have overlapping jurisdiction
in Ann Arbor-especially where state laws
and city ordinances are the same.
"As chief law officer in this county, I
can go over there (City Hall) and tell
them what I want them to do," said Har-
Larcom disagreed. In a sharp statement
yesterday, he said, "I want to make it
clear once and for all that the Ann Arbor
Police are in charge of law enforcement
at the parks and at the rock concerts ...

Any information to the contrary is er-
Larcom added, "The sheriff can be of
greatest help to the city if he will work
with our chief in a cooperative manner as
he previously indicated he would. In this
way, he can support the Ann Arbor Police
Department in the manner he indicates
he wants to."
But this weekend's concert is scheduled
for Gallup Park, which is outside city
limits but inside the county. Enforcement
falls naturally under Harvey's jurisdiction,
and the Ann Arbor police must assist
under his direction.
Plainclothes policemen circulating at
last Sunday's West Park concert reported
marijuana smoking, one case of nudity,
possession of intoxicants, and use of "vile,
profane and obscene language in the pres-
ence of women and children."
Harvey claimed the city administration

asked police to ignore such "criminal ac-
tivities"-including, he added, "sexual in-
tercourse with people cheering on."
Larcom contended that Harvey's ver-
sion of the concert is "terribly wrong."
The Ann Arbor police did make several
arrests for possession of marijuana, drunk
and disorderly charges, and have obtained
a warrant to arrest Terry Warren Tate,
leader of the Tate Blues Band, for inde-
cent exposure, Police Chief Walter Krasny
According to Krasny, however, there
were "no overt sexual acts."
Krasny also denied that Harris or Lar-
com issued any instructions influencing
police activity. "At no time have the mayor
or city administrator directed this office
specifically on police operations," Krasny

SGC deletes
key section
rom bylaws
New disagreement between Student Government Council
and Senate Assembly over the proposed draft of the Regents
bylaws emerged last week as SGC expressed opposition to
an entire section of the bylaws.
In preliminary deliberations last Thursday, Council struck
from the proposed draft most of a key section (7.07) which
gives faculty "primary authority to set reasonable standards"
for curriculum and for evaluating students.
The section also would grant the faculties of certain pro-
fessional schools the authority to establish student be-
havioral standards affecting the awarding of licenses in
:;their fields.

In a sweeptng move, the
State House last week passed
a series of amendments which
would have the effect of re-
stricting the Regents in their
control of the operations of*
the University.
lAdded to the higher education
appropiations bill before it was
passed last Friday, the amend-
ments would largely affect the
power of the Regents In controll-
ing University expenditures. The
amendments include:
-A provision which would ne-
gate any tuition hike instituted
after June 30, 1969, by deducting
from the state appropriation an
amount equal to that raised
through the Increase in student
-A provision which would ef-
fectively bar the University from
challenging the constitutionality
of the higher education appropri-<
ations bill, or any part of the
bill, Under the amendment, all
state funds would be immediately
cut off from any school which
challenged in .the courts the le-
gality of the appropriations bill.

Passes $69.3ii~ion
appropriations bil
Chances for avoiding a substantial tuition hike this year
went from bad to fair last week as the State House of Repre-
sentatives passed a higher education appropriations bill in-
cluding $69.3 million for the University.
The House figure is $4 million higher than the amount
the University would receive in the bill passed by the Senate
in May, and $2 million higher than the recommendation filed
by Gov. William Milliken in January,
University officials have said they can avoid a substan-
tial tuition hike only if the Legislature appropriates ae least
the funds which the governor requested.

The appropriations bill is now
under consideration by a joint
Senate-House conference commit-
tee which could make cuts severe
enough to necessitate a tuition
hike. Conference committee rec-
ommendations have, over the past
