Sheldon on the run
The U. S. Attorney's Office in Detroit issued
federal fugitive warrants yesterday against Ann
Arbor millionaire Francis Sheldon and a New York
man on charges of criminal sexual misconduct in-
volving young boys. According to the State Police,
Sheldon had been using North Fox Island in north-
ern Lake Michigan to film pornographic movies
featuring young boys and older men. He and the
New Yorker, Dyer Grossman, were originally ac-
cused with separate assaults on young boys; both
men, however, disappeared last November. They
were in charge of Brother Paul's Children's Mis-
sion, a gay nature camp for boys on North Fox

set a-grumble by Jimmy Carter's letter to that
outspoken thorn in the paw, Andrei Sakharov. So
Wednesday, the Soviets decided to fire off a few
salvos in return. In two separte commentaries, the
Russians accused three American stations which
broadcast to Russia and East Europe of inter-
fering in the internal affairs of Communist coun-
tries. Specifically, the Soviet news agency Tass
charged the Voice of America with raising "a
hullabaloo about mythical human rights infringe-
ment" and compared the station with "an arro-
gant salesman who is trying to foist on his cus-
tomers stale and rotten goods." Anybody for a

Legs & calves
We all know that two heads are better than one,
but are five legs necessarilly an improvement over
four? Chester Erb isn't sure. The Roaring Spring,
Pa. farmer watched a cow of his give birth to a
calf with a "fifth leg hanging from its back. "If
Mother Nature is producing a calf with a leg to
kick flies away, what kind of flies can we ex-
pect?" asked Erb. After the midnight birth of the
calf, Erb called his veterinarian. "If that thing
has four good feet to stand on and one to kick 'H'
out of me," the vet said, "I don't want any part of
it." We don't blame you, doc.

Clashes between picketers and

is wary
As the work stoppage by cam-
pus service employes grinds into
its third day, a determined but
light-hearted mood has become
the trademark of the roughly
2,000 strikers.
Meanwhile, dorm residents re-
port they aren't feeling much
of a pinch from the strike yet.
Most indicate sympathy for Un-
ion wage demands, but also con-
cern about possible service cuts.
"I JUST WISH the police
would get here, we could have
our little battle and get it over
with," said Anna Tobias, picket-
ing in front of a United Parcel
Service (UPS) truck attempting
to make a delivery to the Mich-
igan Union loading dock yester-
day afternoon.
"You know how it is - when
you need a cop, you can never
find one," she laughed.
As dark cowds rolled in, she
inveighed, "Our Father who art
in Heaven, don't let it rain on
TOBIAS, a custodian at West
Quad, was one of a dozen strik-
ers in front of the Union load-
ing dock. The group was in
good spirits, and the novelty
of the picket line didn't seem
to have worn off yet.
"I voted 'no' on the contract,"
said Dennis McBee, a cook at
West Quad who has worked for
the University for three years.
"By taking away the cost of
living allowance, the University
is giving us less than we had
before," he added.
Just then a cry went up -
"Here they come!" as a police
car pulled into Union St. and
two officers got out.
"WE'VE GOT TO have more
than just two cops - two isn't
enough," joked Tobias.
The two officers walked over
to the dock and the strikers
gently chided them for police
efforts to help trucks make de-
"You have to work real hard
to earn the kind of money I'm
getting today," Patrolman Lee
Williard remarked to his
colleague. "Tomorrow, I go back
on straight time," he added.
WHEN ASKED to elaborate
on his earlier activities, how-
ever, Willard refused comment:
"I can't talk about that. You'll
have to ask Captain Klinge."
After briefly confering with
the driver of the UPS truck,
the policemen warned picketers
aside as the vehicle slowly
edged up to the dock.
"Why are you helping the
University?" an older woman
striker asked Willard.
"I'm not helping anyone," he

American Federation of State, County and Municipal
Employes (AFSCME, Local 1583) President Joel Block
last night stood before Ann Arbor City Council to de-
cry what he termed an "intolerable" situation stem-
ming from the city police handling of the current union
Earlier in the day, a brief but violent confronta-
tion erupted between police, strikers and strike sympa-
thizers at East Quad when a group of picketers - man-
ly student and staff sympathizers from the Residential
College -- attempted to block a University sanitation
truck from collecting the dormitory's trash.
THE TENSE INCIDENT brought cries of unnecessary police
face from participants and onlookers. Besides bruises and sev-
eral bloodied faces, there were no serious injuries, and no ar-
rests were made.
Ann Arbor Mayor Albert Wheeler said he told Police Chief
Walter Krasny yesterday morning that there should be "no vio-
lence" used against the strikers unless the safety of either police-
men or ,a citizen was in danger. He added t'tat "I have no evi-
dence that (danger to safety) existed" at East Quad,
ra- "If there is- evidence (of officer misjudgment or wrongdoing)
the ... I think that officers ought to be reprimanded," the Mayor
s a added.

Plans for renewed negotia-

William Neff maintained last
night that it would be "no soon-

week before the two sides would
seriously consider returning to
the table.
AFSCME members walked out
Wednesday after rejecting a
proposed contract arrived at by
union bargainers a week before.
The settlement is being disputed
because of wage disagreements.
Meanwhile, pro-AFSCME stu-
ussed dent groups are organizing pick-
;crd- ets, circulating petitions and

age of kitchen help were creat-

All dorms were said to have
served meals yesterday, and are
expected to have enough food
for today.
Building directors throughout
the campus said students were
slowly volunteering to tempor-
arily replace striking workers.
In Markley and Mosher-Jor-
dan, students were being of-

fered $2.30 per hour to clean
bathrooms. A housekeeping su-
