The major objections of SGC to the current bylaw draft
concerned section 7.07, which deals with student conduct

New eviction
trials begin
Rent strike eviction trials re-
sumed in District Court yesterday
with the case of Campus Mana-
agement versus Beverly A. Nescot.
No decision will be rendered until
3:30 p.m. today when final argu-
mients and instructions to the jury
will be delivered.
After tomorrow's decision, other
eviction trials are scheduled to re-
sume Friday afternoon and con-
infue next week.
Campus Management charged
that Nescot owes $240 in back
rent and $10 in utilities which is
normally paid to the landlord who
in turn pays Detroit Edison Co.'
Nescot claimed that Campus

to their contract because the

because of some cost factors.
In addition to $800 for electric-
ity, the Tenants Union would have
had to pay $8 an hour for at least
two hours to 200-500 policemen.
Because of recent controversy
over outdoor concerts, city offi-
cials have said that substantial
numbers of police are needed to
patrol any concert area.

man the building's 114 doors and
for maintenance.
"I'm extremely angry at t h e
University for charging us $2,500
rent," Kaufman said yesterday.
"The Events Bldg. is being paid
for largely out of student f e e s
(and this is a student event)."
Kaufman added that he w a s

from the University about using

He said the Tenants Union had
considered holding the concert in
West P a r k but after "a lot of
community pressure" t h e union
decided to withdraw plans to seek
a concert permit from the city.
The most recent West ;P a r k

housing rules?

While Republicans charge the city hous-
ing commission chairman with harassing a
tenant in public housing, reports have
come to light that the tenant involved is
the elderly mother of a wealthy Ann Arbor
citizen who may have used his influence
to place her in the apartment.
City Councilman Joseph Edwards (R-
Third Ward) charged Monday night that

Weeks violated the rights of a tenant and

be made against a Housing Commission is
that the housing which public monies have
made available for the needy citizens is,
in fact, occupied by someone who does not
qualify," Weeks said.
When Weeks heard from another tenant
that the woman "allegedly fell far short"
of the residency requirements, he asked
that the allegation be submitted in writing.
He then consulted other members of the
housing commission, who, he said, be-
lieved the issue should be investigated.
According to the files which Weeks
checked last Friday, the tenant in ques-

investigated, but the decision to publicize
this particular case was made by others,"
said Weeks.
Because of the discrepancy between the
application and the charges, Weeks said,
"I decided, in conference with other mem-
bers of the commission that the most di-
rect, open, prompt course of action would
be simply to go todthe tenant, identify my-
self, and ask her if she would mind telling
me when she moved to Ann Arbor."
