By SUE SOMMER
Special To The Daily
v YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio -Strikers at
Antioch College have decided to let police
take over college buildings that they have
occupied for almost six weeks.
The decision came after a meeting with
Green County Sheriff Russell Bradley yes-
terday morning. Bradley had hinted that
mass arrests might be necessary to re-
claim the buildings, which were ordered
cleared in a court injunction handed down
THE INJUNCTION followed a suit filed
by four Antioch students who claimed that
" their right to an education was being in-
terfered with by the strike.
a "As long as the injunction is operative
we can't do anything to the people who
want to enter the building except appeal
to their consciousness," said Kevin White,
a member of the strike steering com-

A LANDMARK decision by the Michigan
Supreme Court last February 22 recog-
nized the right of interns and residents
to bargain as a labor organization, stating
that they had the two-fold status of em-
ployes and students.
Since the ruling, the bargaining commit-
tee of the IRA had been studying areas
of concern to the residents and interns,
in an effort to determine whether or not
the IRA should officially decide to col-
lectively bargain. The committee issued
an affirmative recommendation, which
the IRA accepted yesterday.

Judge halts bottle
By GORDON ATCHESON
At the request of several local mer-
chants, Circuit Court Judge Edward Deake
yesterday issued a temporary restraining
order preventing Ann Arbor from en-
forcing its non-returnable bottle ordinance.
The order will delay enforcement of the
law which would have gone into effect
today, until at least June 6, when a pre-
Nixon refusal to talk
' bpre y hi story'
Law school Prof. Paul Kauper, a dis-
tinguished authority on the U.S. Constitu-
tion, is of the opinion that historical
precedent supports President Nixon's re-
fusal to testify about the Watergate affair.
Kauper, whose son John is an assistant
U.S. Attorney General, said that the
precedent was set in 1807 when Chief
Justice John Marshall subpoenaed Presi-
dent Thomas Jefferson to produce docu-
ments in connection with treason charges
against Aaron Burr.
ALTHOUGH PRESIDENT Jefferson
later made some of the documents avail-
able, he was adamant in refusing to honor
the subpoena and in maintaining he was
not subject to the subpoena powers of a
judicial body, Kauper noted.
"The Constitution is silent on the issue
of Presidential subpoenas," he said. "But
on the basis of historical precedent, and
under the constitutional doctrine of sep-
eration of powers and by the very nature
of the executive office, it appears the
President is not amenable to judicial
process or to subpoenas issued by Con-
Kauper made these points in response
to the recent statement by White House
press secretary Ronald Ziegler that it
would be "constitutionally inappropriate"
for the President to be ordered to give
sworn testimony, informal statements or
written responses to questions in connec-
tion with judicial or congressional investi-
gations of the Watergate affair.
liminary hearing is scheduled on a law-
suit filed by the merchants.
THE CLASS ACTION suit against the
city claims that the ordinance denies local
retailers "equal protection under the law"
as guaranteed by the state and federal
During the preliminary hearing, Deake
is expected to call for an extensive hear-
ing exploring the ordinance's "merits."
Deake also has the perrogotive to continue
the restraining order beyond the June 6
The ordinance, approved by City Council
March 19, requires local merchants to
collect deposits on all beer and soft drink
containers they sell. The merchants must
also redeem all such containers.
THE ORDINANCE for all practical pur-
poses eliminates beverages sold in non-
returnable bottles from the city.
Those named as plaintiffs in the suit
include the Capitol Market, Falsetta Mar-
ket, Buster's Food Mart, Big 10 Party
Store, Van's Market, and Cal-ert Brothers.
They have, however, filed the suit on
behalf of all other retailers within the city
who sell beer and soft drinks.
Deake stated in the restraining order
that the ordinance appears to do "serious
damage" to the merchants' businesses.

Laidlaw said the implications of the suit
