TFs seem hesitant
(Continued from Page 2)
University TFs - has taken a similar posture. "We have held exten-
sive discussions with the department heads and Fleming, but the
college has not formulated any overall position on the strike," Ed-
ward Dougherty, an assistant to LSA Dean Frank Rhodes, said yes-
terday.
GEO LEADERS have held what they describe as two "unproduc-
tive" talks with Fleming during the past two weeks. They accuse the
administration of "intentional delaying tactics" and refusal to ad-
dress specific TF demands.
The University, however, claims it cannot discuss the demand
package until a MERC certification election is held. With neither side
willing to concede points, let alone debate them, the sessions became
exercises in futility.
DURING the meetings, Flemming did raise the sectre of an in-
junction against striking teaching fellows. The President yesterday
said any strike among public employes - including teaching fellows-
is illegal and the University could legitimately seek injunctive relief.
Fleming did not say whether the University would consider an in-
junction, but he did say the University's action would depend on "the
particular circumstances." A local attorney predicted the University
would have little difficulty securing an injunction from the Washte-{
naw County Circuit Court.
"We are confident we will win our demands if we get the strike
vote," TF chairperson Sandra Silberstein said. However she conceded,
the strike vote's success will probably depend on the effectiveness
of a week-end long "get-out-the-vote campaign."
Another GEO member related "three weeks ago Fleming wouldn't
have spat on our side of the street; now he is very concerned."
IN PART the GEO organizers have been encouraged by the suc-
cess of a teaching fellow strike four years ago on the University of
Wisconsin campus.I
Following a five-week strike, the Wisconsin employes won many
of their demands which are similar to the GEO stance here. The
Wisconsin leaders helped get GEO organized earlier this year, yet
both groups recognize the different circumstances that now exist.
The Wisconsin campus was then a hotbed of activism. As a re-
sult, the strike drew widespread support from the undergraduates.
Secondly, the administration was "brought to its knees" when local
unions such as the teamsters honored the picketlines.
THESE conditions do not exist here. Whether GEO has the energy
to pull-off a strike and continue it for five weeks if necessary remains
unclear.
"It would clearly be a disaster to go out on. strike and then fail,"
GEO leader Ruhland admits.

The ordinance defines as porno-
graphic anything that exceeds the
"community limits of candor and
as a whole lacks political, literary,
artistic or scientific value."
The law further prohibits the de-
piction of masturbation, homosexu-
ality, bestiality and sexual inter-
course. The display of unclothed
and clothed genitals are also pro-
hibited when for purpose of stimu-
lation, gratification or perversion.
The law applies to all art formsj
also, including sculpture, drawings
and recordings.
Ypsilanti City Attorney Ken Bron-
son predicted last September that
the proposed ordinance was not
likely to "stand the test of an ex-
tended court battle."
Meanwhile, in city primary elec-
tions, both Republican Roger Ber-
toia and Democrat Paul Brown
won landslide victories in the third
and fifth wards, respectively.
In the third ward GOP strong-
hold, Bertoia was the only candi-
date actively seeking his party's
nomination due to Frederick Her-
mann's late withdrawal from the
primary.

sought the Republican nomination
last year, pointed to the city
budget as the main concern facing
council this year.
