New ad guidelines
suggested by city's
Human Rights unit
The Ann Arbor Human Rights Commis-
sion (HRC) last night tentatively approv-
ed a series of recommendations designed
to force compliance with an ordinance pro-
hibiting discriminatory classified adver-
The Ann Arbor News has been cited by
the commission as the "most blatant"
violator of the ordinance, enacted last
The law prohibits publication of classi-
fied ads which discriminate on the basis
of "race, color, religion, national origin,
sex, marital status, sexual preference, or
educational association." The News has
consistently printed sex discriminating
ads, according to the IIRC.
The commission said the Human Rights
Department (HRD) should encourage in-
dividual citizens and groups to complain
directly to the newspaper printing a dis-
criminatory ad.
"The Ann Arbor News, in particular,
needs more convincing that the public
does not appreciate the publication of
discriminatory want ads," the commis-
sion's report stated.

UP. Indians block road

100 Chippewa Indians, many armed with
rifles, blockaded a roadway intersecting
the Bay Mills Indian Reservation near
this Upper Peninsula community late yes-
terday in a dispute over fishing rights and
law enforcement jurisdiction on the reser-
There were no reports of any shooting
or injury.
A MEETING at the State Police post
here between tribal leaders and repre-
sentatives of the FBI, Bureau of Indian
Affairs, State Police and Chippewa County
Sheriff's office led to what Sheriff David
Hanna called a "compromise" agreement,
Indian leaders returned to the reserva-
tion to present the compromise to the
blockading Indians in an effort to quell
the disturbance,
The incident was touched off by the
arrest Wednesday of two Indian youths,
who were walking along the reservation
roadway-a two-lane blacktopped county
road-with several fish. They were arrest-
ed by state police on charges of fishing
without a license.
THE CHIPPEWAS here have been in-
volved in' a long-standing dispute over
fishing rights, which the Indians contend
were granted on an unlinited basis in
BIA representative Mike Fairbanks, who
happened to be visiting the reservation

yesterday, joined tribal chief Donald Par-
rish and tribal council member Abe Le-
Blanc in returning to the reservation after
the meeting to attempt to end the block-
"They expressed their situation, and we
gave them our responsibiilties and duties
and they told us theirs," said Hanna after
the meeting with the Indians, "and we
reached a compromise."
"THE STATE police, represented by Lt

William Lamphear, head of the post here,
and I, representing the Sheriff's Depart-
ment, agreed to make no further arrests
on the reservation or to go into the reser-
vation unless requested to do so by fed-
eral agents, primarily the FBI"
The Indians contended the arrest of the
two youths was invalid because it took
-place on the reservation. Hanna said of-

blasted by state legislator~

LANSING (UPI)-State Representative
Earl Nelson (D-Lansing) yesterday blasted
Michigan's major universities, claiming
that students were both mis-counseled and
deprived of teaching time by professors
too interested in publishing.
Nelson attacked the counseling system
for allegedly guiding thousands of students
into professions with few job openings. He
said that he was shocked that students
didn't bring lawsuits against the institu-

ing at the marketplace," Nelson said,
"I'm surprised those students are not
asking for class action suits because of
Nelson also said that youths were being
pushed incorrectly into college on the
premise that was the only means to a
job and good pay.
The representative pointed to the overly-
filled teaching profession as a good ex-
ample of students studying for a job that
virtually doesn't exist,

universities were writing books and pam-
phlets on state money and tuition funds
and spending too little time with their
Nelson said an informal survey taken
at some of the state's bigger universities,
the University of Michigan, Michigan
State University, Eastern University,
Western and Northern University, indi-
cated there was some wasting of funds.
