A day with music
By LORIN LABARDEE
In planning the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival, Peter Andrews
and John Sinclair, members of Rainbow Multi-Media Corporation, an
arm of the Rainbow People's Party, decided their main goal would
be to make people aware that good jams exist outside the spectrum
of rock music.
From all indications their attempt has been a complete success.
Now into its third and final day, the festival has attracted scores
of people from across the county.
Gate totals have been high throughout the entire series, with a
grand total of 12,000 enthusiasts for the Friday night concert.
Saturday's program featured a number of high points including
the formal dedication of Otis Spann Memorial Field. In a brief cere-
mony Muddy Waters presented a dedication plaque to Lucille Spann,
widow of one of blue's greatest artists, Otis Spann.
Other performers whose act set off barrages of hand-clapping and
cries for more were Koko Taylor, Hound Dog Taylor and the House
Rockers, and the Chicago Art Ensemble.
Because of a unique ticket policy, those who attended the Saturday
afternoon concert were not permitted to leave the festival site for more
than half an hour.
Unfortunately the whole good music scene was marred somewhat
by a number of drug overdoses. A larger than average staff of Drug
Help pe'ople and Psychedelic Rangers were kept busy walking people
to the Drug Help tent and helping them recover.

SAIGON- (I)-South Vietnamese forces
hung on grimly yesterday in Tien Phuoc a
district town in the north, repulsing com-
munist tank assaults in a third day of street
A military spokesperson on the northern
front said: "The town is still contested, with
the enemy in the northwest section and the
South Vietnamese in the southeast."
About 3,000 government troops supported
by tanks have been thrown into the battle
for' Tien Phuoc, which came under attack
Thursday by more than 1,000 North Viet-
namese infantrymen and Viet Cong, sup-
ported by Soviet-built tanks.
Tien Phuoc is in a mountain-ringed valley
about 40 miles south of Da Nang and 12
miles west of coastal Highway 1. About
40,000 civilians in the valley have been cut
off by the fighting, but there has been no
word on military and civilian casualties.
Associated Press correspondent Dennis
Neeld said a communist force led /by six
tanks attacked government positions around
the Tien Phuoc airfield late Friday night, but
was repulsed in heavy fighting. By yester-
day morning the tanks had retreated a short
distance and were "just sitting there," Neeld
Bad weather again curtailed U.S. air sup-
port,, but at last report South Vietnamese
units were said to be counterattacking the,
communist-held district headquarters.

The United Nations Security Council was
summoned into urgent session yesterday to
deal with Mideast developments as Israeli
and Syrian warplanes fought a swirling air
battle over the occupied Golan Heights.
Israel claimed its planes shot down three
Syrian jets in the Golan Heights encounter
and returned safely to base. Syria conceded
the loss of three planes, two to ground
missile fire, but claimed two Israeli jets
In New York, the Security Council meet-
ing was set for 10 a.m. today. A U.N. spokes-
man said Syria requested it to consider air
strikes by Israeli jets into Syrian territory.
Israeli warplanes made a series of raids
Friday on targets in Syria and Lebanon in
retaliation for the killing of 11 Israeli Olym-
pic athletes in Munich last Tuesday by Arab

A Syrian communique claimed Israel sent
over another wave of planes 90 minutes
after the Golan Heights dogfight yesterday,
that Syrian planes intercepted and hit one
of the intruders.
There was no verification of a second en-
gagement by Israel.
Israel also reported one of its missile
boats sank an Arab guerrilla boat outside
Lebanese territorial waters Friday.
The Palestine news agency Wafa said an
Israeli boat was sunk Friday off the Israeli

they saw Syrian planes go down.
A Syrian spokesman said Syria's fighters
and fighter-bombers delivered "a strong
strike in the Golan Heights, causing material
and human losses." It was called a reprisal
raid for the air strike Israel launched Fri-
day in Syria and Lebanon.

T. R. Harrison, a local black activist, has
been named director of Trotter House, the
black student center for social and educa-
tional activities and counseling.services.
Harrison, from Battle Creek, entered the
University as a freshman in the Fall, 1969.

under psychiatric care
During the Black Action Movement class
strike in Spring, 1970 he was arrested in the
midst of a demonstration outside the Ad-
Charge with felonious assault on an offic-
er, Harrison was convicted despite claims
that the evidence used against him was con-
fusing and contradictory.
The new Trotter House, located at 1443
Washtenaw in what was formerly the Zeta
Psi fraternity, will open in October. It will
replace the original house on South Univer-
sity, which was destroyed by fire last May.
Funds for the renovation of the house and
the expansion of services had been provided
as part of an alternative plan to the Afro-
American Cultural Living Unit.
Plans for the Cultural Living Unit were
rejected by the Regents last March. An Ad
Hoc Committee was created to explore al-
tcrnative solutions to the problems faced by
black students at the University.
Although the Committee said in its report
that the alternative plan does not "capture
the student self-generated interest" that was
shown for the cultural living project, it out-
lined programs for this fall which would ful-
fill the needs expressed by black students.
These programs were approved by the
Regents last July. They include:
-Opening of black lounges and libraries
in Stockwell and South Quad which will be
equipped with books and educational aids in
areas of black: interests. The lounges will
not only be centers for black students, but
also will "provide an outreach mechanism
for contacting non-minority students,"
-The expansion of minority counseling
and informational services within the coun-
seling division of the Office of Student Serv-
-The beginning of Project Awareness within
OSS. The program aims at solving conflicts
which may arise in integrated housing; and
-Six thousand dollars has been set aside
in a Facilities Assistance Fund, which would
assist needy minority organizations in rent-
ing University buildings, such as the Union
or League, to hold meetings or special pro-
According to Vice President for Student
Services Henry Johnson, the expanded serv-
ices of Trotter House can only be a partial
answer to black student's problems.
"They may be diminished, but I doubt if
they'll all go away," Johnson says.

Randy Caswell, '75, charged with setting
one of the 70 fires that plagued the campus
last January and February, is currently re-
ceiving treatment at a mental institution in
Washtenaw County while awaiting a pre-
trial hearing on Oct. 27.
Caswell is accused of setting a fire Feb. 3
in the University's General Library. It was

torney currently handling Caswell's case,

Caswell has been a patient at both Ypsilanti
State Hospital and the University's Neuro-
psychiatric Institute. Spokespersons for the
admissions departments of both institutions
said they had no record of Caswell as a
