The 'little movie:
Hopes for 'Finney'
Opening tonight at the Campus is a different kind of movie:
This is no pat Hollywood or foreign flick, but the test showing
of one of those "little" movies that often turn out to be the big
"Finney" was made for the comparatively minute cost of
$140,000 by writer-producer-director-editor-sometime camerman
Bill Hare, 34, a former University student and hanger-around at
the old repertorytheatre above Metzger's.
Hare, now deep. in debt, is placing all his hopes on "Finney,"
which he defines "as mostly a character study" of a football player
who also dreams of being an artist.
The 75-minute film was shot entirely in and around Chicago,
except for the football sequences filmed with the Denver Broncos.
It took more than two years to make the movie.
None of the cast of "Finney" has ever appeared in a film. The
lead is played by Robert Kilcullen, who used to play defensive
tackle for the Chicago Bears and who-like "Finney"-is also an
The film was not written with any special person in mind.
Rather, it grew out of an idea which Hare has finally traced back,
to a short story he wrote in a sophomore creative writing class at
Since then, the idea and the film have matured slowly. Once
Hare actually buried his reels in the ground and gave up. Finally
he found backers for his movie, and things started happening.
"It took time, and many mistakes, to learn," Hare says. "We
had no money when I quit my job in television commercials to
work on the film. I've been living from hand to mouth ever since."
Finally "Finney" was set for a premiere at the Cinema in
Chicago after the engagement of "Charley" ended in February.
But "Charley," one of those surprise films, is still around. The
premiere is due sometime. soon, Hare says, and meanwhile two
test runs are being held here and in East Lansing.
"This is the toughest audience," Hare says. "Chicago won't be
as hard. And New York may be even kinder."

Nixon asks mutual HRC charge
By THOMAS R. COPI
So there's this new bar in town. This in it-
self is occasion for some celebration. What with
the' dearth of 'new bars and all. But this bar,
friend, is something special. This happens to be a
pretty nice place.
For those of you who find that history has
some relevance to your life, you will recall that
the Falcon, make that T1E Falcon, closed some
five years ago to make way for a parking lot and
the Sheraton Hotel.
Since then, there has not really been a place
for a certain set of barflies to go. The old crowd
broke up, as it were. They scattered to the Sch-
waben Inn and, the Town Bar and (some) to the
Flame and (for a while) to Clint's, Club (the
\former Midway punch).
But now, the old crowd (or what there is left
of it) isbJack together again at this new b~ar,
which wears the handle of Mr. Floods Party. The
name of the bar comes from the name of a
poem by one E. A. Robinson. If you can figure
out the relevance of the poem to the bar you are
a better man than I, Gunga Din, as they say.
Mr. Flood's Party, as I was saying, is decorat-
ed in a not at all usual fashion. What with
stained glass decorations sharing the walls with
no fewer than (count them!) three stuffed heads
and various and sundry old photographs. The
decorations have been described by one un-nam-
ed local notable as nouveau-hippy-pinko-far-
opt-things. So be it. In any case, the basketball
hbop mounted near the back of the place does
not seem, somehow, at all out of place.
But by now you are probably asking yourself,
"How did it come to be that there should be a
new bar in Ann Arbor (of all places); and how
is it that this particular new bar (Mr. Flood's
Party by name) is.of such a character as to be
worthy of more than a little passing comment?"
Well, the answer to this two-part question
is no little simple. To start with, there are these
two guys who are the owners of this bar. They
go by the names of (respectively) Robert "Bud-
dy'f Jack and Ned Duke. They were part of the
aforementioned "old gang" and met one night
at the Schwaben Inn. Well, they got to talking
and it seemed that they ,were of a mind: what
was needed was a new bar. That was some years
ago, already. And that's how long it took for
them to get everything together and to come up
with "Mr. Flood's Party." The basic money was
acquired from their parents (who stand to de-
rive a good return from their investment), and
the bar and Liquor Control Commission license
was acquired after some lengthy hassle, through
the purchase of ,the former Andy's Bar (R.I.P.)
lock, stock and barrels.
Here is some factual information'for those
of you who may be interested in such things:
Ned Duke entered the University in 1962. Four
years later he graduated with a degree in gen-
eral scienceand physical education. Along the
way he had lettered three times in gymnastics
and captained the team in 1966, his senior year.
To look at him now you wouldn't think that he
was once a jock (and a Sammy too . . .), what
with his long -hair and moustache. Since he grad-
uated he's been teaching at Clarenceville Junior
High School in Livonia, Mich. Not only that, but
even as a successful entrepreneur *nd bar-dwn-
er, he'll continue teaching next year. It seems
that he really likes this teaching business.
Buddy Jack, on the other hand, never fin-
ished his studies at the University., He dropped
out years ago to go to work and just never seem-
ed interested enough to go .back. Along the way
he has taught quitar lessons and headed up the
YMCA day camp - "Camp Birkett" - out on
Big Silver Lake.
But now these two are bar-owners, and seem
to be enjoying it. And their bar, on Liberty near
Ashley, seems to be doing a great deal of busi-
ness, as witness the crowds waiting to get in dur-
ing prime drinking hours.
It is futile to wish them luck, for that is ne
commodity which is not needed at Mr. Flood's
Party. It's a nice place.

Sources said some U.S. troops
would be withdrawn from South
Vietnam-regardless of what hap-i
pens in Paris-as soon as such a
move is deemed a responsible one
by the administration, and as soon
as officials believe it' would be re-
garded as a sign of confidence in
the allied military position-.
Nixon said the United States
would ask that North Vietnam
nam withdraw its forces from
Cambodia and Laos in accord with
a" prescribed timetable.

Saxton questioned why Mrs. Hill
quit her next job as staff nurse at
Huron View nursing home after
three months, Mrs. Hill responded
that she objected to certain proce-
dures at the homte, specifically the
dispensing of drugs without proper
In the last question of cross-
examination Saxton asked Mrs.
Hill if she would have resigned
had she obtained the position she
'wanted. Mrs. Hill said yes.
Bledsoe called four witnesses
after Saxton's cross-examination
of Mrs. Hill.
Mrs. Judith Huber was sub-
poenaed and flew in from Cali-
fornia. She had been a secretary
in the operating room from Febru-
ary, 1962 through July, 1962.
In June, 1962, Muriel Horton,
Mrs. Hill's supervisor, accused Mrs.
Huberx of being ringleader of a
group of thieves stealing from the
nurses' locker room.
Mrs. Horton reputedly told her
she shouldn't associate with "those
people." Mrs. Huber interpreted
"those people" to mean the blacks
at the hospital and felt she 'was
unjustly accused because of her
association with some of the black
Mrs. O'Brien also said Mrs. Hor-
ton was "disappointed" when peo-
ple from the kitchen, presumably,
blacks, applied for training posi-
tions as medical technicians.
The next witness, Mrs. Audrey
Lucas, who worked in the ope-
rating room from 1961-64, said she
applied for a position as orderer
of medical instruments which was
available in March, 1964.
The position eventually went to
a friend of Mrs. Horton's secretary
who came from outside the de-
partment and possibly from out-
side the hospital.
On cross-examination, however,
Mrs. Lucas, who is black, revealed,
Mrs. Horton had given her a good
rating. She commented it was dif-
ficult to say .if there was racial
understanding could be reached,
all forces other than those- of the
South Vietnamese government and'
native units of the Viet Cong
would begin withdrawals to be
substantially completed over a 12-
month period by agreed-upon
-After the 12 months, all out-
side forces "would move into des-
ignated base areas and would not
engage in combat operations."
-Remaining American and al-
lied troops would complete their
withdrawal "as the remaining
North Vietnamese forces were
withdrawn and returned to North
-"An international supervisory
body, acceptable to both sides,
would be created for the purpose
of verifying withdrawals" and
would help arrange supervised
-As soon as possible after the
international body was function-
ing, elections would be held-
open to all South Vietnamese who
would forswear "the use of force
or intimidation." The elections
would be "under agreed proce-
dures; and under the supervision
of the international body."
-Arrangements would be made
for "the earliest possible release
of prisoners of war on both sides."

what happens to black people
when they are taken to the police
station," he said.
Krasny attacked this statement,
saying it is a "complete falsehood."
"If the person responsible for
this statement has facts, he should
present them to me, not make
loose statements to the public or
press,' he said.
Any person who has been ag-
grieved has the right to present
the facts to his office and an in-
vestigation will be conducted,"
Krasny also disputed Cowley's
suggestion that HRC implement a
testing program of the police de-
partment, saying, "Before the
commission decides to start a test-
ing program for the police, I
would suggest they take a good
look at their own staff and the
manner in which they perform."
Chauncey was testing the Star
Bar Friday night for discrimina-
tion after the HRC had received
complaints that blacks were being
Cowley said that Chauncey's re-
port determined'that blacks were
being treated badly at the bar
"and as a result of his presence
in the bar police were called."
The manager of -the bar, who
does not wish to be identified,
claims that'no one has been mis-
treated or discriminated against

on HRC i1cdent
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a statement released yesterday by
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter E. Krasny concerning the Human Rela-
tions Commission's chages that policeman had mistakenly arrested and
beaten an HRC staff member last Friday night.
Statements released] to the press 'have been misleading; a blow
in' the face, does not constitute a beating. The person in question-was
treated for lacerations of his lip.
I will not. discuss thesmerits of the offense, or be intimidated by
statements made to the press. Prosecution will be determined by the
The police are always accused of harassment and intimidation.
But, the very same people making the accusations used this method
on a local merchant to prove their point, and then decided to press
the police officer into a confrontation.
We are all human and subject to a level of restraint.
I was under the impression, the staff of the Human Relations
Commission was trained to use restraint and solve problems, not
The fact this person was a city employe does not give him
amnesty from arrest and I world expect an employe on assignment
to conduct himself as a gentleman.
-Disciplinary action for the actions of an employe is the respon-
sibility of the department head.
Before the Commission decides to start a testing program for the
police, I would suggest they take a good look at their own staff and
the manner in which they perform.
The statement, "this is not an isolated incident and is symbolic
of what happens to black people when they are brought into the police
station" is a complete falsehood. If the person responsible for this
statement has facts, he should present them to me, not make loose
statements to the public or press.
Any person who has been aggrieved has the right to present the
facts to this office and an investigation will be conducted,
At this time, no formal complaint has been presented to this
office by the aggrieved person. All the information we have at this
point has been submitted to us by a third person.
