rules for the first time since

1970, University a t t o r n e y
Craig Christensen has form-
alized a complaint against
John Eustis, '73, for actions
stemming from a Feb. 19 de-
monstration outside the Ad-
ministration Bldg.
Eustis is also being tried in civil
court on charges of assaulting an
officer during the February de-
monstration, which began when a
crowd of students were prevented
from entering the Regents meeting

Justice, to hear the case against
The hearing is scheduled for
April 14, at 9:30 a.m., at
North Campus Commons. How-
ever, the complaint might be con-
tested, according to Eustis' lawyer,
'Denny Hayes.
The charge was originally
brought by University fire mar-
shall Russell Downing last month.
In accordance with procedure as
set in the rules, the charges went
*first to Alfred Sussman, acting
John Eustis
Dean of the literary college, in
which Eustns is a student, and
then to Christensen.
Christensen, in accordance with
the rules, had one month to de-
cide if the charge would have va-
lidity asa complaint. "We just
check to see whether if the facts
1 alleged are true, they would vio-
late any of the rules," Christen-
sen said yesterday.
Christensen found three of the
rules applicable. Those rules forbid
"use of force or violence against
any member or guest of the Uni-
versity community; interference
*by force, threat or dureess, with
the freedom of movement of any
member or guest of. the Univer-

Downing had charged that Eus-
4tis violated the rules by "strik-

in the right shoulder with his fist
and by seizing the Complainant's
hat and striking the Complain-
ant in the face with said hat,"

Harris wins in 60
per cent voter turnout
Democrat Robert Harris won his second term as mayor
last night as he overwhelmingly defeated Republican candi-
date Jack Garris by a 4,500 vote margin.
The mayoral victory was the largest Democratic win in
the history of Ann Arbor with Harris outpolling his opponent
in the first three wards and running close in the other two.
The total vote was 15,789 for Harris and 11,158 for Garris.
With 60 per cent of the electorate voting, the Democrats
also won three of the five council races-much better than
was expected.
"I think it's just great that we won," said Harris as he
proclaimed victory. "The Republican party wanted a test of
conservatism versus liberalism and they found out what
the answer was." -

Student Government Council has
become involved in a dispute with
The Daily on whether the content
of the campus newspaper can be
regulated by SGC.
The dispute is focused on a rule
passed by Council in February as
part of the "election code" used
in last week's campus-wide elec-
The rule states that "when a pub-
lication endorses candidates and
states reasons for its endorsements,
and there is no comparable media,
then the endorsement and reasons
should be publicized soon enough
before the election that the candi-
dates not endorsed can reasonably
answer the charges in the time re-
In addition, the rule states that
"the publication should offer "at
least equal and fair time or space"
for the responses.
According to Robert Kraftowitz,
editor of The Daily, the news-
paper's Senior Editors are in agree-
ment with the "thrust of the rule"
and will try to handle future en-
dorsements in the manner sug-
However, Kraftowitz adds, the
Senior Editors believe that SGC
does not have the authority to es-
tablish a regulation concerning
election endorsements.
Under the Regents bylaws, the
Senior Editors of The Daily are
given complete authority over the
editorial content of the newspaper.
The dispute between The Daily
Senior Editors and SGC emerged
on March 28, the day The Daily
published its recommendations for
the campus-wide elections.
At a meeting of Council's Cre-
dential and Rules Board, later that
day, SGC Elections Director Bob
Nelson filed a complaint against
The Daily charging it with violat-
ing the rule concerning endorse-
ments. Noting that the next issue

Students charge 'political bias
as Flick's Bar refuses service

Five University students are
filing a complaint today against
three policemen, charging the
police with failure to enforce
the civil rights law when a local
bar refused to serve the students
Friday night.
The complaint arose after a
waitress at Flick's Bar, 114 W.

The complainants said a wait-
ress told Chester he must pro-
duce his draft card along with
other identification.
When Chester could not pro-
duce it, the complainants report,
the waitress commented, "Oh, I
decided three years ago I
wouldn't serve you anymore"
