DIAL-A-RIDE:

Sinclair attorneys, supporters

Mini-bus system confident of successful appeal

begins operation

By SUE STARK
Every resident of Ann Arbor's
southwest side has a potential
bus stop at his front door with
the initiation today of "Dial-a-
Ride" bus service.
By calling 663-4292, some 2,100
households, including a few stu-
dent apartment complexes in the
1500 blocks of Stadium Blvd.
and Pauline St., can now sum-
mon a bus to their home for a
door - to - door service previously
unavailable in mass transit sys-
tems.
A nn A r b o r Transportation
Authority (AATA) c h a i r m a n
William Drake says that the
primary objective of Dial-a-Ride
is to get people out of their own
cars and thus relieve congestion
on city streets.
Dial-a-Bus is Michigan's first
mini - bus supplementary trans-
portation system.
AATA spokesman Michael Ber.

and two dozen people have or-

General Notices
Two members of Committee of Con-

passes good for unlimited serv-
ice through Oct. 31.
After that, regular monthly
passes will cost $15, while one-
way cash fares are 60 cents.
Under a 10-ticket discount plan,
the fare is 50 cents.
Three Dial - a - Ride vehicles,
ten-passenger AATA purple and
gold mini-buses, have been con-
ducting simulated runs between
the Stadium Blvd., Pauline St.,
Scio Church Rd. and Main St.
residential section to the in-
town service loop along William,
Maynard, Liberty, Division, Hu-
ron, and Main Streets.
Response to experimental serv-
ice has been good in the four
days that the new dispatch cen-
ter has been open, according to
Berla.
With the system now officially
in full operation, service will be
available Monday through Thurs-
day from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and
on Friday and Saturday to 9
p .m.
There will be two "walkup"
stops on the in-town loop, one at
the entrance to Jacobson's on
Maynard St. and another on the
west side of Main St. between
Washington and Liberty Streets.
At these points Dial-a-Ride
patrons may board the mini-
buses without having previously
called for service. A call to the
dispatch office will secure pick-
up at other points along the in-
town loop for nonstop service to
patron's doorstep.
Dial-a-Ride is a joint venture
of the city of Ann Arbor and the
Ford Motor Co. which has do-
nated a vehicle and consulting
services. A major portion of the
cost and experiment is being
borne by the state.

and Ann Arbor and the Interna-
tional Day to Free John Sinclair
and End Marijuana Prohibition in
January, 1970.
At this point, Sinclair's attorneys
and supporters are increasingly
confident of success. One attorney,
Hugh Davis, says Gov. William
Milliken's proposed drug package
--which would reduce the maxi-
mum sentence for possession of
marijuana to 90 days-and the
Supreme Court's decision to hear
the appeal are signs that "the
days of marijuana repression in
Michigan are fairly close to being
over."
"I have a sense that we'll win
the appeal," Davis says. "There
are just too many constitutional
problems in the case. We're sure
to win one of them."
Sinclair's appeal challenges the
conviction on a number of grounds.
Primary among them is a conten-
tion that the state marijuana laws
are unconstitutional, since they
classify marijuana as a narcotic
while most medical authorities
agree that it is not.
Sinclair's attorneys argue that
this constitutes violation of their
client's right to due process of law.
A second charge made by Sin-
clair's attorneys is that his sen-
tence of 9%-10 years constitutes
cruel and unusual punishment. He
was subject to the same punish-
ment. they argue. as an individual
convicted of selling 100 pounds of
heroin to school children.
Another as'pect of the appeal
challenges Sinclair's trial convic-
tion before Judge Colombo. His
supporters assert the evidence
used to convict Sinclair was ob-
tained illegally.
Detroit police arrested Sinclair
and 55 others in a massive "drug
raid," breaking up a "narcotics
ring," newspaper reports read in
1967. The arrest came whzn under-
cover agents succeeded in obtain-
ing marijuana from Sinclair.
Sinclair's supporters have con-
tended that he was a political tar-
get, since police, they say, lid not
than 15 were prosecuted.
Currently, Sinclair is also a de-
fendant in a case involving the
interfere with the local heroin
traffic elsewhere in the same part
of the city.

They argue that police used the
raid as an excuse to arrest Sin-
clair, knowing in advance that
most of those arrested would be
relesed. Of the 56 arrested, less
bombing of the Ann 'Arbor ofice
of the Central Intelligence Agency.
That case is tied up in legal ma-

chinery over the use of wiretap-
ping without a warrant.
However, Sinclair has already
been assured of bond in that case.
Therefore, if the state Supreme
Court grants him appeal bond on
she marijuana conviction, Sinclair
could be out of prison soon.

This little slistick
could increase your
typing speed
by two or three days.
Students will be elated over a completely new
way to correct typing errors: Liquid Paper's® new
dispenser, slipstick.
When you're typing the big one, the 30-page
paper you've been sweating for weeks, that's when
mistakes bug you the most. So you slow down.
And the closer you get to the bottom of the page,
the more you clutch up. Mess up now and you've
got a whole page to retype.
When you've got a slipstick handy, you don't
worry about mistakes. One easy touch releases a
special fluid that buries the mistake and leaves a
clean new surface like the paper itself.
So you type relaxed. And make fewer mistakes.
On the big assignments, Liquid Paper's new slip-
stick could put you days ahead.
ASK FOR LIQUID PAPER SLIPSTICK AT YOUR
BOOKSTORE OR ORDER DIRECT WITH THIS COUPON.

We W ,e ot Ready for You--And We Apologize!
During registration and the first two days of classes almost 15.000
people contacted '76-GUIDE, the University's 24-Hour, Counseling,
Information, and Referral Service (this is almost one third of the total
calls GUIDE received all last year). Many of you called and were not
responded to because of an overload on our lines and the impossibility
of GUIDE counselors being able to handle all the incoming calls on a
new telephone system.
You can help yourself and others calling GUIDE if you will use
University Centrex operators for faculty numbers and departmental
listings, and Student Locator Service for addresses and telephone num-
bers of students.
Centrex Telephone Information: Dial "0" (outside University
phones: 764-1817),
Student Locator: 764-2330.
These two numbers can provide you with more accurate and current
telephone listings of faculty, staff and students than GUIDE.
We feel very bad about those of you who were inconvenienced by
GUIDE's problems during the past week, but now that things have
settled down and some of the "bugs" have been worked out we hope
you will feel free to call GUIDE with your questions and problems.
We appreciate your cooperation and thanks for bearing with us.
