The sit-in started at First
Presbyterian Church on Aug. 19.
Negotiations with the church
broke down two days later when
Charles Thomas of ,EEIL and
Sandra Gtrard of WO were
asked to leavq and a temporary
injunction forbidding thm to
disrupt services was granted by
Washtenaw County Circuit
Judge William Ager.
After a hearing on Aug. 24 to
show cause why they should re-
main in the building, Thomas,
Mrs. Girard and their agents
and representatives were bar-
red from the churches by ano-
ther injunction.
Hank Bryan, vice president
of aDL, says he expects that
injunction to be served on the
people still sitting in Friday at
the First Presbyterian Church.
The second church takeover
came on Aug. 25, when t h e
groups staged a brief sit-in at
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic
Church.. They abandoned the
church when Thomas, Mrs.
Mnerson and two woman 'sup-
porters were arrested on tres-
passing charges.
The four are presently out on
bond and a hearing on a motion
to dismiss charges will be held
Sept. 29.

After the arrests, negotiations
resumed and on Aug. 29, an ad
hoc group of laymen and clergy
was formed to represent nine
churches in the negotiations.
The number has since been
raised to 10.
On Monday, representatives of
the ad hoc coalition met with.

Tuesday evening, the Board

He was notified last May that
he had been tentatively ac-
cepted for the post at Nebraska,
but in August, the Nebraska
Regents held a closed session
and. ordered the school to stop
processing Davis' application.
The Nebraska Regents have
not officially stated their rea-
sons for rejecting Davis, bu t
Regent Edward Schwartzkopf
has said the decision was made
because the board did not ap-
prove of his "social conduct."
Schwartzkopf said the regents
had "received information
which alerted us, so we kept
working on it."
Davis, a doctoral candidate In
the philosophy department, is a
former administrative vice pre-
sident of Student Government
Council. He was on the commit-
tee that drafted a set of Re-
gents By-laws proposing that
students be given the power to
make and enforce all rules gov-
erning non-academic conduct.
In March, he staged a four-day
fast in the Administration Bldg.
to support the adoption of the
proposed bylaws. Davis is cur-
rently a member of Central Stu-
dent Judiciary.
He had been recommended for
the post at Nebraska by .the
chairman of that university's
philosophy department and: the
dean of the school's College of
Arts and Sciences.
Davis has requested' the, of-
ficial reasons for the Nebraska
Regents decision, but has on 1 y
been informed that the Board
will meet again on Sept. 14 and
will then consider a reply to
The Davis case has caused a
major furor in Nebraska. Two
of the state's three major*news-
papers have supported the re-
gental decision.
Prof. Jerry' Petr, vice -presi-,
dent of Nebraska's chapter of
the American Association of
University Professors, said the
association had an interest in
determining if the Regental re-
jection of Davis has involved
"any breach of academic hiring
"I don't know exactly how
they based their decisions," said
Petr. "Davis had very good aca-
demic standings."
Davis has been reappointed
here as a teaching fellow. He
will teach two introductory phi-
losophy courses this term.




The statement proposed "the
immediate- creation of a
community-wide association' to
which we invite: BEDL, WRO,
NAACP, BULJ, Model Cities,
Community Center, OEO, repre-
sentatives of the churches and
other organizations concerned
with the poor and disadvant-
aged, to meet the needs of the
black and white poor in Wash-
tenaw County."
Early yesterday morning, the
executive board of the Ann Ar-
bor chapter of the New Mobili-
zation Committee to End the
War in Vietnam passed a reso-
lution in support of the WRO
and BEDL demands.

However, he says he has had
problems in finding places to

At the presentations by black
organizations yesterday, B S U
president Oliver Spear said the
group""s planning to resume a
Black Liberation School, which

was begun last April with 60
students. Then, it was called
the Black Tutorial.
This year, between 6:30 and
9 a.m. each weekday, BSU plans
to provide breakfast for public
school students and education
about black history. Spear said
that volunteers are needed to
cook, teach the children ,an d
drive them to school before the
program can begin.

Harris based his three page
statement on a report released
by a three-man committee com-
posed of Assistant City Admin-
istrator Donald Borut, City At-
torney Jerold Lax, and acting
Human Rights Director Robert
In the statement Harris urg-
ed that the police officer in'
question be prosecuted immed-
iately for a criminal act. The
officer allegedly attempted to
strike a black youth with his
nightstick while the youth was
pinned to the ground by anoth-
er officer.
Patrolman Paul Bunten, pre-
sident of the police officers as-
sociation, referred to the state-
men as "libelous" and said that
the mayor "publicly prejudiced
the guilt of one of our officers."
