Chavez
KI
jailed forI
contempt
SALINAS, Calif. (Ai - Farm
labor leader Cesar Chavez was
jailed yesterday for contempt'
of court and warned by a'
judge he would stay there un-
til he called off his nation-
wide lettuce boycott.
Monterey County Superior Court
Judge Gordon Campbell told Cha-
vez he would "not stand for .
the continued disobedience of this
court's orders" and ordered bail-
iffs to take the leader of the suc-
cessful table grape boycott into
custody in the courtroom.
A crowd of several thousand
Chavez supportersvreceived the
news quietly outside the court
building. They had massed several
hours earlier for a "silent vigil"
on behalf of the leader of the
AFL-CIO United Farm Workers
Organizing Committee (UFWOC).
The judge sentenced Chavez to
two consecutive five-day terms for
violation of two anti-boycott or-
ders, adding he would keep Chavez
in custody until the anti-boycott,
order is complied with "in Cali-
fornia an'd elsewhere."j

As well, Harris established an
ad hoc committee on police-com-
munity relations last year to in-
vestigate methods for the im-
provement of relations between
the police and elements of the
community which have been tra-
ditionally hostile to the depart-
ment.
Council recently passed an air-
pollution ordinance which bans
open-air burning in Ann Arbor.
The body this fall also adopted
an up-dated version of the disor-
derly conduct ordinance.
More recently, however, Harris
has received attacks. from both
the radical left and right in his
handling of the case involving a
police officer who allegedly aimed
a blow at a student who was al-
ready subdued during a confron-
tation in last spring's class strike.
Harris had asked that the offi-
cer's case be turned over to the
prosecuting attorney following 'a
report on the incident. After his
announcement, Republican leaders
as well as the Police Union se-
verely attacked Harris' stand.
Last month Harris stated that
the city would drop charges
against the officer on the basis of
another investigation of the inci-
dent which said the officer's ac-
tion was unjustified but adequate-
ly punished by the department.

Peter O'Neill, spokesman for the

the organization planned kidnaps

But he warned, "If Republicans
