SEEK INJUNCTION:
'U' served with suit
over Hill Aud. use

AID TO HANDICAPPED
SGC, city to hear proposals

A suit was filed in Circuit Court
yesterday against the University
because of its recent refusal of
facilities for "Get-Out-the-Vote"
concerts in Hill Aud. and the
Michigan Union.
The suit, filed by the Friends of
the Rainbow People, a student
organization sympathetic to the
views of the Rainbow People's
Party, charged the University with
breach of contract concerning the
two concerts.
Don Koster, the group's attor-
ney, maintained that by breaking
the contract for Hill Aud., which
had already been negotiated, the
University violated the "due pro-
cess" clause of the State Consti-
tution. Koster also argued that the
'University discriminated against
Friends of the Rainbow People
because of the group's "creed" or,
political beliefs.
The purpose of the suit, ac-
cording to Perry Bullard, Koster's
associate, is to obtain a permanent
injunction against the University
from f u r t h e r discrimination
against recognized student groups
in the use of University facilities.
In addition, the suit asks for a
total of $35,000 for damages in-

curred by the Friends of the Rain-
bow People during the two con-
certs.
The group first attempted to
obtain Hill Aud. for the night of
April 2 but were denied permis-
sion by University President Rob-
ben Fleming.
In a letter to Maurice Rinkel,
student organizations' auditor,
Fleming denied the use of Hill
Aud. to the group.
According to Fleming rental to
a group such as the Friends of the
Rainbow People would, "put the
University in the position of con-
doning illegal acts." The illegal
acts to which he referred are the
use and possession of marijuana.
As a result of Fleming's action,
Friends of the Rainbow People
filed for .an injunction to allow
the concert to proceed as sched-
uled.
However, the suit was later
withdrawn when Student Govern-
ment Council was granted the use
of Hill Aud. for the same night.
The originally scheduled concert
then took place under the spon-
sorship of SGC but with Friends
of the Rainbow People assuming
financial responsibility.

Several proposals to aid handi-
capped persons in the community
are currently under consideration
by the City Council and Student
Government Council.
The first plan, originally formu-
lated by Mayor Robert Harris'
Committee for the Handicapped,
asks that the city purchase a
$6,000 specially equipped van to
provide transportation service for
handicapped persons. The propos-
al will be presented to Council
next Thursday.
According to Leonard Green-
baum, Committee chairman, the
city would then lease the van to
a private taxi company to oper-
ate and would subsidize the taxi
fare for those persons who could-
n't afford to pay. The proposal
asks that the city appropriate
$30,000 for the entire operation.
It also calls for the University to
automatically subsidize the rides
for handicapped students.
"The University does provide
transportation all over campus,"
Greenbaum says, "and it is only
right they ought to provide for the
handicapped." He cites the public
schools as a precedent since han-
dicapped students there are "rid-

den around wherever necessary." Charles Kidd, acting vice-presi-

a grant from the Department of
Health, Education, and Welfare
(HEW), to fund legal services,
readers for the blind, wheelchair
repair and a special advocate for
handicapped students at the Uni-
versity. The SGC Committee for
the Physically Handicapped is
sponsoring the proposal.
According to SGC committee
member Joel Silverstein, efforts
now center on recruiting faculty
members to oversee the project.
The SGC group, which must file
its request with HEW by Jan-
uary, is modeling it after the
Berkeley University proposal which
received a $90,000 grant from
HEW.
The number of handicapped
students at the University has
never been tabulated, but SGC
