Clamp put
on Mayday
From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Washington po-
lice may not disseminate arrest records for
nearly all of the 12,000-13,000 persons ar-
rested during last spring's Mayday anti-war
demonstrations, the U.S. Court of Appeals
here ruled Friday.
Any records already released must be tra-
ced and retrieved, the court said.
In addition, the city must refund collat-
eral forfeited by those who chose not to re-
turn for trial. The Washington Post esti-
mated the city would have to refund $30,-
000 for the approximately 3,000 such cases.
The court action is the latest in a series
of judicial rebuffs to the city's arrest pro-
cedures. The American Civil Liberties (AC-
LU) filed suit against the procedures lead-
ing to Friday's order.
The demonstrationls, last April 28 through
May 5, were aimed at disrupting the gov-
ernment, and resulted in the largest num-
ber of mass arrests for a single cause in a
single day. The usual field arrest routine
was abandoned, leading to challenges of
the legality of the arrests by the ACLU and
other groups.
The court also said it may order all May-
day arrest records expunged, except those
un es it y official can dem onstrate "legi-
In addition, the court issued a temporary
injunction stalling the estimated 325 May-
day cases still pending until the city's law-
yers conduct a thorough "screening". Be-
fore a case can be tried the court ruled, the
prosecutor's office must show cause for ar-
rest and demonstrate the probability of a
sound case.
The court said that, in retrieving the
records, the police department must pro-
vide the total number arrested; the dispo-
sition of all cases, including the number
dropped and number in which collateral
was forfeited; the number of cases dismiss-
ed, including .those due to lack of suffi-
cient identification or police data; and the
number of persons who have already sought

"almost total victory." Meanwhile, city

Special To The Daily
CHICAGO - Among the crowd of over
200,000 yesterday at Chicago's Interna_-
tional Amphitheatre were children wear-
ing small signs which read, "we had come
to see the dream come true" - an apt
description for the third international
Black Expo here.
The minority business and cultural ex-
hibit is sponsored by the Rev. Jesse Jack-
son and Operation Breadbasket - the
economic arm of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference (SCLC).
The exhibition -- a memorial to Martin
Luther King -- has attracted more than

400 exhibitors who are displaying teir
busneses and sto promote black capital-
As it has in the past, Black Expo offers
black people - businessmen, politicians,
entertainers, and visitors - an oppor-
tunity to share knowledge with each other.
The conference is focused on stronger
national economic and political involve-
ment for black people. And black produc-
tion is proudly displayed with booths set
up by groups such as Freedom Ways mag-
azine, Joe Lewis Milk,- and Motown Re-
However, not all of the. exhibitors or
visitors are black. Ten per cent of the par-
ticipants are white companies here to do
business in the lucrative Afro-American
Cooperation comes fo ousde the
business community as well. Chicago
Mayor Richard Daley proclaimed last
week Black Exposition Week, and urged
citizens to take advantage of the event
which ends tonight. *
The exposition has also attracted a va-
riety of national and local black politi-
cians, - including Cleveland Mayor Carl
Stokes, Reps. Ronald Dellums (D-Cal.),
William Clay (D-Mo.) and Parren Mit-
chell (D-Maryland).
