Gun not 1inked
to six murders
Police say weapon used
only in Phillips slaying
By JUDY SARASOHN
State Police yesterday eliminated the possibility that the
gun which they say was used in the murder of Margaret
4Phillips had also been used in two previous area slayings.
County Prosecutor William F. Delhey said that ballistic
tests proved the found gun could not have been used in the
murders of Jane Mixer, a University law student, last March,
ard Alice Kalom, a graduate student in sociology, last month.
All three University coeds were killed by a .22 caliber gun.

Spock
BOSTON (iP)-The draft con-
spiracy convictions of Dr.
Benjamin Spock and three
others were thrown out yes-
terday by the 1st U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals, which also
ordered Spock and one other
acquitted.
The appeals court, however,
ordered new U.S. District Court
trials on conspiracy charges
against the Yale University chap-
lain, the Rev. William Sloane
Coffin Jr., and author and teacher
Mitchell Godman of Temple,
Maine.
Ordered acquitted with the
famed pediatrician was Michael
Ferber of Boston, a Harvard grad-
uate student.
The four men were convicted
June 14, 1968, of conspiring to
counsel youngmen to violate Se-
lective Service rules. Five had been
indicted on the charge Jan. 5,
1968, but one defendant, Marcus
Raskin of Washington, was
acquitted by the trial jury.
The appeals court held there
was insufficient evidence that
Spock and Ferber intended to use
illegal means or adhere to illegal
aspects of an antiwar, antidraft
agreement.

"cornplaint,

By ALEXA CANADY
A complaint charging the Annj
Arbor Police Department and the
Star Bar with racial discrimina-
tion has been filed with the Mich-
igan Civil Rights Commission by
the Ann Arbor Human Relations
Commission.
The complaint is an outgrowth
Of a series of charges and counter-
charges concerning the arrest and
alleged beating of a Human Re-
lations Commission staff member,
Ray Chauncey, by Wade Wagner,
then an Ahn Arbor police officer.
Chauncey claims he was mis-
takenly arrested while on a legiti-
mate assignment by the HRC and
then hit twice in the mouth at
the police station by Wagner.
Wagner, who was hired as a
Washtenaw County sheriff's dep-
uty after quitting the city force
*Xlainis he arrested Chauncey when
the HRC worker acted in a dir-
orderly manner in the Star Bar.
Wagner has said that while he
was following normal booking
procedures "he (Chauncey) re-
sisted and made an overt act in-
dicating his intent to strike me. I
*0ok defensive and positive action!
and subdued him."
The charges against Chauncey
have since been dropped.
HRC decided to file the com-
plaint with the Civil Rights Com-I
mission after a heated hour of
debate at their meeting on June:
"4 during which the assistant di-
rector, Bob Hunter, stormed out.
At that time David Cowley, HRC
Director said -he felt the Civil
Rights Commission could make a
more objective view of the inci-
dent than HRC or the police,
_,Which both had personnel directly
involved in the case.
Officials at the Michigan Civil,
Rights Commission's Detroit of-
fice say the complaint filed by
HRC cannot be considered official
because there are two respondents
the police department and the
.,tar Bar.
"Separate complaints are nec-
essary in order , for the Civil
Rights Commission to hold the
confidential investigation which is
required by its policy," the offic-
ial explained."

bridge.
The weapon was found Thurs-{
day.
Delhey also said yesterday that
Miss Phillips' papers and records'
have been investigated and de-
tectives have "talked to people
associated with her, and we have
found noindication that she was
investigating the other murder!
cases or had any unique or spec-
ial knowledge of the other murder
cases."
There had been reports that
Miss Phillips had been making a
study of the six previous slayings
of young women in the area..
Delhey said Thursday night, "We
had an excellent case even with-
out the gun." He added that the
successful search adds credibility
to an account given by Shewcraft
Who reportedly saw and talked
with Bishop the night of the mur-
der'.
Shewcraft testified at Bishop's
preliminary examination Wednes-
day that the defendant had
bought a .22 caliber gun in Lan-
sing. The gun was in Shewcraft's
possession July 4, until 11 p.m.
when Bishop asked for the wea-
pon, explaining he was going to
collect some money from a man.
Later that night Bishop went
back to Sheweraft's apartment
looking "scared," said Shewcraft
The two men went for a ride,
Shewcraft testified. At that time,
Bishop' allegedly told him, "This
guy (not referring to himself) shot
a girl three times and I saw the
last bullet go through her head."
Bishop got out of the car then,
and threw the gun in the Huron
River, according to Shewcraft's
testimony.

Three persons were arrested
early this morning outside the
Whistle Stop restaurant on South
Forest Ave. near South University
in an apparent dispute over a
table and chairs placed outside
the restaurant on the sidewalk.
Two of those arrested' were
Whistle Stop employes, Jacque-

Audrey Simmons was also ar-
rested.
Police last night refused to con-
firm the names given by friends
of those arrested but said only
that two were adults and one a
juvenile. Miss Evans was arrested
for use of profane language and
Fischer for obstructing an arrest,

and 47 at Ft. McClellan between
April and June of this year. About
110 were to be tested either in the
same three-month period or dur-
ing the first quarter of the current
fiscal year at Edgewood.
The open air tests at Ft. Mc-
Clellan were limited to deconta-
mination and detection exercises,
the documents said. The Army
said that portions of mustard gas
and two types of nerve gas are
poured on a surface for training
purposes.
The Army said it will have
tested 358 additional devices at
Dugway and 129 at Edgewood
during the next three months-a
marked rise over the testings for
the last quarter of fiscal 1969.
The weapons contain gas rang-
ing in amount from a few grams
to about 10 pounds.

The city administration yesterday issued
a permit to a newly-formed citizens group
for a rock concert in "Huron Uplands" this

Huron Uplands is University-owned
property adjacent to the Huron High
School parking lot off Fuller Road. The
city will lease the property from the
University for the day.
City Council Thursday night rewrote
a city parks ordinance to have the effect
of banning rock concerts from all present
city parks except Gallup Park and any
