to let it through."
SOON AFTER the truck left
and the squad car moved on
to other picketing sites, thet
strikers' mood relaxed and the7
earlier good cheer returned.
Among University housing res-1
idents, attitudes on the work'
stoppage ranged from strong
backing for the union to "indif-
ference" to outright hostility to-
wards strikers. .

ones who get hurt," comment-
ed Chris Cooper, an LSA fresh-
woman living in Markley Hall.

"The majority here are for
the strikers," commented Alice
Lloyd resident Lisa Rivkin, a
Pilot Program freshwoman. "I
think the strikers are right -
they're asking for a cost of liv-
ing increase, and the University
only wants to give them five per
cent. This strike has really got!
a lot of people in an uproar,"
she continued.

all," he said, adding that most-
Couzens residents are "apathet-
ic" about the strike.
"IF THEY DO talk about it,
it's just that they're afraid the
dorm's going to close. If the
food stops, they're going to getf
mad at the workers, not the .
University."
Joan Shekter, also from Couz-
ens, said she is personally fight-
ing the indifference she sees
a'mong residents of her dorm.;
"Whenever I see a student do-
ing union work, I stop them and
ask them why," she said. "I7

aggravate the situation as much
as possible. That way we can
make it clear how badly theseI
workers are needed."

s:r Wes Coillton, a law student.
"Dinner was pretty shitty to-
night."
"Personally, I'm in favor of
the iniongetting at least a cost
of living increase. I sort of
realize that $5 an hour isn't
enough to raise a family."
Coulton said there was "a lot
of confusion" among dorm resi-
dents about the strike. "Of the-
people I think know what's go-
ing on, their opinions are pret-
ty evenly divided," he conclud-
ed.
"I think the union has a le-
gitimate gripe," said engineer-
ing freshman Pete Ernst, als
of West Quad. "It hurts me, but
if I were in the union, I'd vote
to strike, too."
Another West Quad resident,
literary college freshman Lee
McAllister, expressed a concern
that seemed to be shared by
many University students:

volunteers in the kitchen.
"I WAS GOING to volunteer,
but I got sick," she remarked.
"I don't support the strike, but
I sympathize with the workers.
I feel sorry for them."
Fellow Markley resident Har-
vey Weingarden, a senior in the
literary college, disagreed: "I

complained. Pretekin attributed
the poor food to the student's
refusal to take over union jobs,
as in many other dorms.
"If there's any inconveni-.
ence," Pretekin stated, "I sup-
pose we'll have to live with it,
but it's the University's fault."
Chuck Carpenter, a literary
college sophomore, said Couz-,

THEN, AFTER a few min-

One woman, University jun-
ior Nancy Lassen, suffered mus-
cular contusions after a police-
man jabbed her in "the kid-

After she was pushed down in
front of the truck, Lassen
claimed that "two (policemen)
threw me -over a cement abut-
ment," where she said she land-
ed in a pile of wooden crates.
Lassen said that a band of
"three to five" officers were
the main perpetrators of vio-

about the East Quad incident,
