Protest ends
with arrests
Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON-"Phase One" of the People's Coalition
for Peace and Justice's campaign to evict President Nixon
ended on the streets near the White House yesterday with the
arrest of 298 anti-war demonstrators, including movement
leaders Rennie Davis, David Dellinger and Father James
Those arrested, part of a group of about 1,000 demon-
strators, were charged with disorderly conduct for staging
a rush hour sit-in at the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave.
and 15th Street, one block from the executive mansion.
Bail was set at $50 or personal recognizance for all those
arrested, but most elected to remain in jail for the night, ac-
cording to the Washington Police Department.

Allegations against the contro-
versial Orson Welles Film Society
will be heard by Student Govern-
ment Council tonight at 7:30 in
"*the Michigan Union's Homer
Heath Lounge.
Vic Gutman, director of student
organizations, said yesterday he
will bring charges against the film
group at that time. Individuals
and student group representatives
will then be allowed to present
* allegations, Gutman -added.
After these presentations, Orson
Welles' representatives will be per-
mitted to make counter-charges if
they wish. No written statements
or third party testimony will be
accepted, Gutman said.
G utman originally charged Or-
son Welles with signing for use of
an auditorium under an assumed
name and with advertising while
failing to identify the sponsoring
He will bring an expandea group
of charges tonight, including alle-
gations that Orson Welles used a
film without permission from the
distributor, fraudulently reported
attendance, harassed other campus
film groups, and operated for pri-
vate profit.
SGC will decide tonight on the
charges to be heard and the evi-
dence to be considered for a sec-
ond meeting on Nov. 10. At that
time, Council will vote on Gut-
man's motion to withdraw recogni-
tion from Orson Welles as a stu-
dent organization.
In such an event, Orson Welles
would be barred from further
showings of films on campus.
Charges originally under th(
jurisdiction of Central Student Ju-
diciary (CSJ) were transferred to
SGC, at Gutman's request, in or-
der to facilitate a more thorough
Minvestigation. '

Police did use standard field ar-

cent mass arrests of the Mayday
anti-government demonstrations.
The sit-down was part of a
scheduled m a r c h from the
grounds of the Washington Monu-
ment to the White House, where
the protesters had intended to
serve an eviction notice on Nixon.
PCPJ had also organized the
march to urge Nixon to accent the
seven point peace plan set before
the Paris peace talks in July by
the Provisional Revolutionary Gov-
ernmenti PRG) delegates from
tSouth Vietnam.
The plan basically provides for
release of all prisoners of warj
when Nixon sets a date for total
withdrawal of American forces
tfrom Indochina.
The demonstration came after a
rally on the Monument grotlnds,
during which PCPJ placed a tele-
phone call to Paris and the crowd
heard delegates from both the
PRG and North Vietnam.
The rally and march were the
culmination of "Phase One," which;
began over the weekend with the
convening of what PCPJ calls its;
e"People's Panel," a group of 1
about 20 representatives of the1
anti-war, movement.
The panel, which was set up in;
grand jury format, spent the week-
end collecting "testimony" on suchE
topics as the war in Indochina,
economic and political repression
in America and the American
s prison system.
At the end of the testimony Sun-
day, the panel presented an in-
dictment of the Nixon administra-
- tion which became the basis for
- the eviction notice carried by
t PCPJ supporters on yesterday's
- march.

arrested, is expected to consist of

Supreme Court rejects
review of Pontiac busing

preme Court unanimously de-
clined yesterday to review the
highly controversial busing plan
in Pontiac yesterday, effectively
dashing the hopes of the city's
active anti-busing league for the
time being.
Pontiac school officials had
contended in their appeal that
whatever segregation exists in
the blue-collar community is a
result of housing patterns.
The court made no comment
on the claim. The *lat rejection
of the appeal indicates that
they may hold no weight with
the justices at this point.
An attorney for the Pontiac
school board, Robert Manley of
Cincinnati, Ohio, suggested that
the board had one narrow avenue
of further appeal. He said the

board could ask for a rehearing
of the case when two vacancies
on the Supreme Court are filled,
"But the chances are so slim
that I would have great hesi-
tancy in even recommending it."
Members of Pontiac's anti-bus-
ing league, the National Action
Group (NAG), made no comment
last night on the Supreme
Court's decision.
Indications are that NAG will
continue to work with other
anti-busing groups towards es-
tablishing a constitutional amend-
ment to prevent busing.
Meanwhile the Michigan House
Republican Caucus has asked

The caucus said it urges an

appelate court or courts."
At the same time, a wide var-
iation in expenditures per pupil
in state public schools was cited
yesterday at a Senate hearing
as an example of unequal edu-
cational opportunity.
Sen. Walter F. Mondale (D-
Min.), committee chairman,
said the "inequality" of the fi-
nancing system can best be
shown by projecting the high
and low expenditures to a class-
room of 25 and coming out with
a $15,000 difference.
Yet, he said, Michigan is but

principally on local realestate
