Takin' it to the streets...
It was like a scene from the Shootout at O.K. J)rral. Approxi-
mately high noon yesterday, three young men, described as in their
20's and "probably good friends" by witnesses, converged at the east
end of Liberty Street in frontof the State Theater. To the surprise of
hurried passersby on the sidewalk, the three began, and finished, a
knock 'em. down, drag out fight which resulted in one being tossed
through a front window of the Theater. Police and an ambulance
arrived at the scene, and two brawlers were taken to the hospital.
Police refused to comment on the incident, which is "under in-
vestigation." The theater's manager, Barry Miller, summed up the
experience: "There's not much to say. He just came through the win-
dow."
No leg to stand on -...
Any unknowing observer of Tuesday night's Michigan Student
Assembly meeting might have surmised that recent Regental
decisions have crippled the assembly in more ways than one. That's
because no less than three MSA reps were hobbling around the assem-
bly chambers on crutches that night. Rumors that the Regents had cut
the legs out from under Vice-President Laurie Tyler and assembly
members David Trott and Nicola Binns proved to be untrue, however.
Tyler sprained her ankle in one of Ann Arbor's famous chuckholes and
Trott broke his leg playing softball. No one in MSA's offices was sure
about Binn's accident.
With God as my judge ... .
Re born Christian Jed Smock returned to the diag yesterday after-
noon to pursue his ongoing campaign to "save" sinning University
students. Smock, of course, considers only campus virgins who ingest
no drugs and do not listen to rock and roll music the only candidates
for heaven-everyone else (who is not saved) is destined to rot in hell,
he said. Smock's own rebirth, according to a pamphlet he circulates,
occurred after experiencing marijuana, LSD trips and general
"lasciviousness." But yesterday he focused his oratory on the evils of
intercourse, masturbation, rock and roll, and immodest dress rather
than drugs. "It's good to propel your sexual appetite in marraige,"
Smock said. A voice from the crowd asked, "Who's she?" Such
mocking comments were continuously tossed'at Smock, and some
students even tried to argue with him over specifics of the bible. After
Smock told the crowd that masturbation inevitably leads to
homosexuality, one student asked him if he had read the Kinsey report
which asserts that most people masturbate. "Well he was a pervert
too," Smock retorted. "If God didn't want us to masturbate he would
have made our arms shorter," cried a voice from the crowd. Smock
went on to urge a woman to put on a dress "to impress God." One man
jumped upon a step ofthe Graduate Library and yelled that Smock "is
a false prophet-he probably can't even get it up!" One disgruntled
leader finally became "Very upset at his speaking manner and the
way he was degrading Jews and gay people" and threw three pies at
Smock. The pie thrower, who phoned the Daily, said, "It didn't hurt,
but it got my point across; he was a real fascist."
With God as my witness .. .
In today's litigous society, it had to happen. Worried about the
ever-increasing number and kind of lawsuits, the Lutheran Church in
America is now offering its pastors what amounts to "clergy malprac-
tice insurance." Called "professional liability insurane," the plan is
available to protect pastors against claims or suits "alleging ac-
tionable wrongs -in the performance of pastoral counseling." Accor-
ding'to James Bryson, an official of the church's administration and
finance office, pastors potentially can be sued because of advice given
troubled members. "It represents a trend of the times to have to
provide for this type of insurance," Bryson said. There's no word yet
on whether testimony will be accepted from any "higher authority."

INJUNCTION SOUGHT AGAINST DETROIT TEACHERS
School officials try to force end to strike

By United Press International
Detroit school officials went to court
yesterday seeking an injunction to for-
ce striking teachers back to work as the
nation's longest walkout passed the 10-
day mark with no sign of a settlement in
sight.
New teacher strikes began in the
Baldwin and Van Buren Intermediate
districts, but a strike in Albion ended.
STRIKING TEACHERS who repor-
ted for picket duty yesterday morning
in Baldwin in northern Lower Michigan
were met by Lake County sheriff's
deputies, some with police dogs, who
were posted at school entrances to
permit substitute teachers to enter.
A spokesman for the Michigan
Education Association (MEA)
described the situation in Baldwin as "a
bit tense." The district is paying sub-
stitutes $65 a day to fill in for striking
teachers, he said.
In all, 13 districts other than Detroit
were still closed by strikes. Some 5,000
teachers were walking the picket line in
those districts, keeping about 100,000
students on extended summer
vacations.
OTHER STRIKEBOUND districts
were: Benton Harbor, Bloomingdale.
Chippewa Valley, Flint, Kelloggsville.
Lansing, Melvindale-Northern Allen
Park, Montague, Milan, Oxford and
White Pigeon.%

In Detroit, school board attorney
George Roumell argued that the strike
by the 12,000-member Detroit
Federation of Teachers (DFI) could
end up costing the district $5 million in
state aid because of missed school
days.
Roumell also told Wayne County Cir-
cuit Judge Patrick Duggan the walkout
has caused serious hardships for the
students, especially those who want to
go to college or apply for scholarships
and also those who are in special
programs for the handicapped or the
bilingual.
HE SAID 6,000 Detroit students sim-
ply dropped out for good in 1973, when
teachers staged a 43-day strike.
However, DFT attorney Theodore
Sachs said a back-to-work order would
be "unwarranted, unjustified and un-
founded" and would not advance the
progress of the stalled contract talks.
Sachs said he doubted teachers would
go back to work without a contract,
regardless of how he judge rules.
"I WOULD have to assume, based on
1973 experience, the teachers who are
aggrieved by injustices would be reluc-
tant to go back in a classroom without
resolution of their dispute," he said af-
ter the court hearing.
Judge Duggan, who earlier this week
refused the board's request for an im-
mediate injunction and ordered both

sides to resume negotiations, is not
exected to rule on the motion until late
this week or early next week.- 1
With talks at a standstill, school of-
ficials on Tuesday announced a home
education program under which paren-
ts, chiefly those with elementary school
children, can obtain free home learning
materials.
A STRIKE in Albion ended yesterday
under an agreement described as

"unusual" by the MEA..
Although there was no contract
agreement, bothrsides agreedto meet
for at least 60 hours during the next two
weeks while teachers work. If there is
no agreement then, the two sides would
submit to binding fact-finding.
The plan was devised by a citizens'
group and endorsed overwhelmingly by
both school and union officials in
separate meetings.
