Prouty joins
ABbackers
WASHINGTON ( - With an announcement that he will
support deployment, Sen. Winston L. Prouty gave President
Nixon a fighting chance yesterday to win Senate approval
of the Safeguard antiballistic missile system without com-
promising.
The Vermont Republican's decision to back the Presi-
dent's proposal left Sen. John J. Williams (R-Del.), and Sen.
Thomas J. McIntyre (D-N.H.), as the only uncommitted
members.
The latest Associated Press rundown indicates 49 Sena-
tors oppose deployment and 49 favor it.

An angry crowd of 400 American Legion members, Dis-
abled American Veterans, and other citizens marched on
City Hall last night demanding that rock concerts in city
parks be prohibited.
Although council did not formally reopen action on
the concert, it passed an amendment, which had been intro-
duced last week by Councilman Nicholas Kazarinoff (D-Third
ward), restricting the volume of electronically amplified
music and voice.
The anti-concert group, carrying signs saying "Politics
and music? Let's hear Harris sing," "Save the'children,"sock

Harris voted against, stipulates
that within the park grounds
music can not go above 97 decibels
for longer than three hours meas-
ured at a distance of 10 feet from
each loud speaker.
More importantly, for each sub-
set of the three hour period the
volume cannot reach or go above
} 100 decibels for two hours, 102
decibels for one and a half hours,
105 decibels for one half hour,
or 115 decibels for one quarter
hour.
If the volume reaches 120 deci-
bels or exceeds the said time limit,
the group responsible for the noise
would be guilty of misdemeanor.
90 decibels is the volume of
heavy traffic during rush hour.

volume," he added. "People have

profanity, drinking, disrespect to

who incite others to riot-all ele-
- ments of the rock concerts, he
claimed.

Stop ease
By JUDY KAHN
Grant Fischer, arrested during
an incident early Saturday in
front of the Whistle Stop restaur..
ant, failed to appear for arraign-
ment yesterday.
District Judge Pieter Thomas-
sen subsequently issued a bench
warrant for Fischer's arrest and
forfeited his bond money.
Jacqueline Evans and Audrey
Simon, also arrested during Sa-
turday's incident, appeared before
the court yesterday afternoon.
They -claimed they failed to ap-
pear for arraignment earlier in
the day because they were not in-
structed to do so.
Thomassen set arraignment for
the two women for Thursday. At
that time they will be asked to
plead guilty or not guilty to the
charges brought against them.
Fischer, Miss Evans and Miss
Simmons were all charged with
misdemeanors. Fischer w a s
charged with obstructing, resist-
ing, hindering and opposing a
law enforcement officer in the
discharging his duties.
Miss Evans was charged with
disorderly conduct for using vile,
profane or obscene language in
a public place.And Miss Simon
was charged with conducting her-
self in a public place so as to
obstruct the free and uninterrupt-
ed passage of the public.
The incident occurred early Sa-
turday morning when police or-
dered Richard Gartee, manager of
the Whistle Stop, to remove a
table and chairs from a patio
owned by the restaurant.
When more police arrived, Gar-
tee told Miss Evans to get the
officers' badge numbers. Witness-
es said she returned to the res-
taurailt saying, "I got the pigs'
numbers."
Police then arrested Miss
Evans for her profane language.
Both Miss Evans and Fischer
are employed by the Whistle Stop.
Witnesses said Miss Simons
was arrested while trying to ob-
tain signatures for a statement
saying Miss Evans had not spoken
profanely. They claim she inad-
vertently stepped over a li n e

About 900 persons converged on

day. The ripped gaping holes in

Ostensibly, they were observing
Bastille Day, 180th anniversary of
the start of the French Revolution.
About 50 Berkeley police and a
dozen university police guarding
the lot were showered with rocks,
bottles and occasional cherry
bombs. a
Traffic was blocked on Tele-j
graph Avenue alongside the uni-
versity. About 200 demonstrators

there sang "We Shall Overcome"
and shouted "We want the Park."
Some university students were
recognized among the demonstra-
tors but most appeared to be the
so-called Berkeley "street people"
who have spawned numerous out-,
breaks in recent years.
No one would claim leadership
of the demonstration, which had
been promoted with unsigned leaf-I
lets over the past few days.
One demonstrator boasted that
the wire cutters had been taken'
to the scene in a dummy coffin'
and had been baked in loaves of
bread.
Police said no firearms were
used in repelling the crowd.

and some buckshot were used in
