hundred women, supporting cen-

strated in the House galleries un-
til they were evicted yesterday and
then left their protest banners
pinned to the White House fence.
The demonstrating began with
ripples of applause when Rep.
Bella Abzug, (D-N.Y.), offered her
resolution on the House floor to
censure Nixon for not setting a
After three other House mem-
bers had spoken in support of the
censure resolution, the women
brought out a broadside of forbid-
den signs that ringed the galleries.

suggestions would be "looked in-
to." The proposals were later re-
jected in a meeting between ad-
ministrators and department chair-
men, a meeting to which the
Student Council was not even in-
vited, according to Ergueta.
Meyers. on the other hand, says
he does pay attention to student
views. "Whenever possible, I be-
lieve I have tried to listen to their
point of view and incorporate it
into the operations of the school.
I'm the first to say, though, that
I have not accepted all of their
points of view."
Meyers pointed out that an in-
creased number of options have
been offered to students during un-
scheduled periods as well as in-
creased passing time between
classes. He cited these as two ex-
amples of the administration lend-
ing an ear to students and doing
something about it.
But Ergueta also remembers
well the case of the increased pass-
ing time between classes, and it
constitutes another case of ad-
ministrative disregard for student
views. The proposal for increased
passing time, he said, came from
the faculty after racial disturb-
ances at Huron this fall. Though
the Student Council supported the
change, it had no role in the nego-
tiations between the faculty and
administration that resulted in the

In an official statement accom-
panying the resignations, the Stu-
dent Council said, "Real change

only when students willfully broke
school rules and forced conces-

tions is unnatural and ultimately

that the administration has not

about change through peaceful
The assistant principal, Albert
E. Gallup, agreed that the Student
Council has been ineffectual, but
was "sorry that they've decided
to resign ... You have to hang in
there and try to improve it."
Ergueta's bitterness is also very
much directed at the student body.
The Council, in its official state-
ment, complained that the students
show no interest in school affairs,
and, according to the council's
vice president, Nick Keresztesi,
the Council often had difficulty
attaining a quorum in the past.
"Students are just so self-cen-
tered, it's unbelievable," Ergueta
While Keresztesi hopes to organ-
ize a mass-based student union at
Albert ordered the galleries in
which the visitors were seated to
be cleared when they continued
and hoisted their signs.
After the demonstration, Rep.
Robert L. F. Sikes (D-Fla), de-
nounced the demonstrators and
said their action "flaunts the tra-

ing of responsibility and the House
has a responsibility as the body
closest to the people."
After the women in the galleries
were evicted, they moved to the
front steps of the House wing and
staged a rally denouncing Nixon,
the war and high prices.

By LYNN SHEEHAN
A Consumer Action Center, fi-
nanced primarily by local busi-
nesses, opened this week with the
aim of fielding consumer com-
plaints against local merchants...
The Center, at 115'/2 E. Liberty,
plans to provide personalized at-
tention to all complaints, and
hopes to iron out disputes be-
tween citizens and merchants in
order to create a better business
atmosphere in the city.
Manned by a group of five
University students, the center
operates with contributions from
local banks, including the Ann
Arbor Bank and the Huron Valley
Bank,,car dealers and local mer-
chants. It operates through the
office of the Chamber of Com-
merce Consumer Affairs Com-
Although the Center does not
control the merchants' monetary
pledges, "we do have a pledge of
autonomy from the Chamber of
Commerce," commented Bill Bail-
ey, one of the center's organizers.
The Center members plan,
through compiling statistics and
records, to study the nature of
consumer problems in Ann Arbor,
and serve as a resource center forf
"Our power is that if we get a
pattern of complaints, we might
be able to push for action from
the Chamber of Commerce," Bail-
Although the Center will not
provide legal advice, it will be
prepared to act as a mediator
between a business and a com-
plainant, or refer an individual to
another organization that could
better solve the problem.
The Center has received over
two dozen complaints since its
opening Monday. These com-
plaints have ranged from motor-
cycle and car repairs to a drape
damaged by a cleaner, to a com-
plaint against a dentist.
A car dealer, against whom a
complaint of an overpriced bat-
tery was registered, is a financial
contributor to the Center.
A Chamber of Commerce
spokesman said that local mer-
chants re-acted positively to the
idea of the Center.
"The Chamber of Commerce
was unable to handle individual
complaints effectively," he said.
"We hope the Center will do a
better job," he added

The state ordered the university
to devise a new plan for provid-
ing protection. For a short time,
recently, observers felt the admin-
istration would establish an inde-
pendent campus police force.
This disturbed city officials. The
city officials, who also feel the
money pinch, say the city would
have been hurt if the University
stopped absorbing some of the
The new plan calls for the Uni-
versity to pay all costs of a "Uni-

sist of 25 to 35 men working out
of Ann Arbor Police headquarters.
These men would be under the
Chief of Police.
Davids main criticism of the
plan is that, in the long-run, he
says it would be more expensive
for the University. "Admittedly,
it would save short term cost such
as providing a building for the
men," Davids said last night.
"But we would have to pay for

Davids favors a plan similar to
the type presently existing at
Wayne State University and at
Eastern Michigan University. The
major difference between those
plans and the one being presented
by the University is that under
Wayne's system the force is under
command of an officer responsi-
ble to that University.

Wilson said he had contacted
three attorneys on the legality of
the printing and none could find
any valid reasons for not print-
ing the list.
At the time of the SGC debate
on the subject, Silverstein claimed
he spoke with nine lawyers who
advised him similarly.
"We don't consider our role in
printing the list a political one,"
said Wilson, "and therefore we
didn't consult the Cellar's board
of director's in making our de-
cision. We have a policy of print-
ing all material brought to us,
and this list is no exception."
Three thousand copies of the
list will be printed up and dis-
tributed primarily in dorm mail-
boxes. With the limited num-
ber of copies available, not every-
one will receive a copy, but Sil-
verstein said anyone desiring a
copy could obtain one at SGC of-

cil did, Ergueta expects very little
response from the students. "I'm
not giving my support to the
union," he said. "Most of the stu-
dents won't pay any attention to.
Ergueta views the resignation as
a personal defeat. He is not proud
of it, he says. But perhaps the
worst part of the entire affair is
that the student body does not
really care, as far as he can see,
whether the student government
has disbanded. "I don't think the
resignation will have a great
amount of effect on most stu-
dents," he said. "They'll just go
