Sunday in Arb

~.{ . People's picnickers, four hundred of them, trekked from 50
miles around to the Arb Sunday and passed an uneventful afternoon
under the watch of about 30 club-wielding Ann Arbor police.
Some dudes drummed and yelped in the trees, frisbees sliced
across the meadow and harps warbled. But most sprawled quietly on
two hills facing the meadow, waiting relaxed and subdued like crowds
come to see a show which is either very late or cancelled.
Back in town over 400 police and deputy reserves waited (earn-
ing $7 an hour for it, according to a patrolman) for the alert to set
riot equipment into motion. But the helicopter sporadically buzzing
the picnic never radioed the word.
Only 40 motorcyclists barroomed into town, and the police made
them park outside the arb gates or escorted them from the city.
Inside the Arb, clusters of police (plus uncountable plainclothes-
men) mingled through the crowd, adorned with face shields and
helmets and gas mask pouches emblazened with a viscious eagle
plunging claw-spread from the sky.
There was very little "pig" calling. Some boos when three girls
drinking wine were asked to leave. And the slightest inkling of a minor
confrontation when 50 picnickers suddenly swooped from the hill
9 and surrounded a police photographer with fancy video cameras.
It was not a bad Sunday afternoon. But no one seemed sorry
to saunter on home when the rain started dripping.
Original plans called for Sunday afternoon in Gallup Park
where several rock bands were scheduled to perform.
However, Mayor Robert Harris canceled the park permit after
Sheriff Douglas Harvey said his deputies would move in on future

The design department of
the architecture and design
school has liberalized re-
quiremens for the Bachelor
of Fine Arts degree, eliminat-
ing most specific course re-
quirements for more than half
the students in design.
The new requirements for the
128-hour degree include 40 hours
of class from the literary college,
52 from the art school and 36
hours of electives from any unit in
the University.
The only specific required aca-
demic courses are English 123 and
12 hours of History of Art includ-
ing either History of Art 111 or
There are no specific art courses
required although students must
take 16 hours of basic art classes.
The revised program is largely
the result of the work of art pro-I
fessor Chet Lamore. Noting gen-
eral student and faculty dissatis-
faction with the school's distribu-
tion requirements, Lamore decid-
ed it was "time to change" the
school's program.
He subsequently drafted the new.
program and gathered faculty andj
atdent opinion concerning it. TheI
atdepartment faculty passed his
proposal virtually without opposi-
tion at an April meeting and the
first students were graduated un-
der it in May.
The 30 to 40 per cent of"the
school's students who are plan-
ning to earn teaching certificates
follow a similar, but more strictly!
delineated program, which w a s
developed to include' state teach-!
ing certification requirements.
Under this program students!
must take 24-26 hours of specified

m-turder 'case
Ann Arbor Police and Michigan State Police are gather-
ing evidence and sifting clues in an effort to prove they have
arrested the right man in the killing of the seventh young
woman in Washtenaw county in two years.
Ernest R. Bishop, Jr., 28, of 818 Gott St., was arraigned
yesterday morning in District Court by Judge Sanford J.
Elden on a charge of first degree murder of Margaret Ann
Phillips, 25, a University graduate student in sociology.
Bishop did not enter a plea but he did request a court-
appointed attorney. The preliminary examination date is set
for 9:30 a.m. July 16 in Elden's court.
The suspect is a part-time
maintenance man for the city. He
served a term in Southern Mich-
igan Prison for a rape conviction Ten ants
and was released on parole in De-
cember, 1968. This frees Bishop
of suspicion in the murders of
Mary Flezar in July, 1967, and

Jack Eisner, president of Stu-

which has sponsored movements
to increase student decision-mak-
ing power, will also attend today's!
In March, SEI established a se-
lection committee of six students!
to choose representatives for vari-
ous education school committees.
This student committee is made
up of three volunteers selected
from a mass meeting for educa-
tion school students, and three,
students who had previously sat
on faculty committees.F
The committee interviewed edu-
cation school students who applied
for positions as non-voting stu-
dent representatives on education
school committees. For the past.
year, selected students have been
serving on several committees in
this capacity.

stein and Brugh discussed the
Kozminski case with Assistant
County Prosecutor Frank Pierce.
Goldstein said the case could
come under the county's jurisdic-

against Mrs. Kozminski, assault
and battery, is a state offense.
Goldstein said Pierce 'refused to
consider bringing Mrs. Kozminski
to trial, however.
Farmer had refused to pro-
secute Mrs. Kozminski because he
said the case was not clear cut
due to a conflict of testimony.
