William Milliken, following, a controversial submarine com-
two-day tour of the Upper Pen- munication system on several
insula, told the Department of grounds and reminded defense
Defense late yesterday that he officials that he had received re-

Milliken said Seafarer "clear-

ple of Michigan, particularly the{
citizens of the Upper Penin-
sula."
In a telegram sent late yes-

highest levels of the federal gov-
ernment that he would have the
final say on whether the project;
would be completed in Michigan.
Milliken also said that state
officials lack conclusive evi-
dence that Seafarer would be

free of harmful effects on hu-
man health and the environ-
ment.
"As to the environmental im-
plications. I commend the very'
thorough job done by those who
developed detailed impact state-

I cannot accept the conclusion
that Seafarer is without detri-
mental environmental impact."
"Based on votes in Upper Pen-

pickel
By ROBB HOLMES
Concerned Ypsilanti citizens,
organized by local churches,
last Sunday began four weeks
of picketing the city's adult
theater - and only movie
house. '
The protest was launched by
the Rev. Hugh White, minister
of First Methodist, located
about 100 yards from the Art 1
and 2 Theaters, who called a
meeting of ministers from local,
churches to organize the picket-
ing.
LAST SUNDAY about 600 per-
sons, most of them parishioners
from Protestant and Catholic
churches, rallied outside the the-
ater bearing signs protesting its
fare. The group plans to con-
tinue the demonstration through
Easter.
"All this is doing is reinforc-
ing the legal process," White
said. "We don't expect to drive
them out of business."
"This town has a reputation
it doesn't deserve" he said.
White added that he does not
want to see Ypsilanti go "the
way of Highland Park," which
has many adult theaters.
"IN HIGHLAND Park it (por-
nography) became the typical
business. And people don't seem
to be willing to invest in a com-
munity where adult businesses
are."
He explained that concern for
the quality of the community
rather than perso-al onnosition
to porlogranhv was the motive
for his actions.
The manager of the theaters
is tolerating demonstrations..
Wednesday he placed coffee and
donuts in front of the building
for the picketers.
"THE FIRST couple days (af-
ter nicketing began),ywere slow,
hut business is picking up now.
We lowered our price and that

t porn
has gotten a lot of people in to
decide if the films are bad and
if they want to come back lat-
er," he said.
Admission is usually five dol-
lars, but Tuesday the theater
lowered its price to 99 cents for
the duration of the picketing.
The manager added he has
no fears of being driven out of
business by the picketing; in
fact he said he thinks- it will
probably aid business.
"WE'VE BEEN getting a lot
of publicity. People will remem-
ber us," he said.
However, Rev. Stan Carter of
the Liberty Christian Chapel,
who has been out picketing ev-
ery day since the protest began,
agrees with White.
"Maybe its Ann Arbor's kind
of culture, but it's not Ypsi's,"
he said. "We invite Mayor
Wheeler and Ann Arbor's -City
Council to extend an invitation
to the theater to move over to
Ann Arbor."
CARTER SAID picketing was
part of an attempt to rid the
community of pornography. He
said that presently a legal suit
is pending against the theater,
and that his group's educating
the community on the effects of
pornography in the comnunity.
Ynsilanti is prosecuting the
theater under violation of City
Ordinance No 425, a orohibitive
anti - nornogranhy law. Ypsi-
lanti City Council member Eric
Jackson fHRP) , contends the
wording of the ordinance could
be interoreted to prohibit such
publications as the Bible and
the National Geographic. The
law was passed by popular vote
in the City Primary Elections
in 1974. Its legality is still being
tested by the courts.
White is currently a com-
plaining witness in the case.
Preliminary procedures for the
trial are now underway.

Board approved the nomination
of the Central Campus to the
National Register of Historic
Preservation.
BARBOUR / WATERMAN is

is some question as to whether
or not the old gyms could, be

the University Administration
on this subject.
During yesterday's meeting
the Regents unanimously ap-
proved a revised version' of the
Policies on Student Records, de
signed to grant students more
control over their scholastic re-

1973, the policy has now been
amended to meet federal re-

Under the new provisions a
student can request a hearing
