he said to the attentive crowd.
"This must be rejected."
His strongest words were

McGovern has made a con-
certed effort to garner the vote
of the minority groups in Cali-
fornia. If these voters, once
considered the private constitu-
ency of Humphrey, choose Mc-
Govern as polls indicated they
will, the South Dakota senator
will have a smashing victory.

seems to be on the road to a
California victory for the Demo-
cratic nomination.

Last Friday night a thief forced the
door on Sally Brown's apartment. When
he left he took her television with him.
The chances are good that he won't
get caught,
Sally (not her real name) is only one
of 39 people who got ripped off over the
Memorial Day weekend. And Tuesday
night 10 more breaking and enterings
were reported.
Every year more than a million dol-
lars of property is stolen in the city. The
number of burglaries is increasing-up
more than 400 cases from last year, ac-
cording to police figures.
Even more frightening is the trend
toward rip-offs in private dwellings-
especially student apartments.
According to Chief of Police Walter
Krasny, "Businesses used to be the pri-
mary target. Now, however, the pattern

has changed. For every business which
is robbed, five or 10 homes are hit."
These homes for the most part are
apartments or rooming houses-typical
student residences.
Surprisingly, modern apartments may
be even more vulnerable than older
structures. According to Krasny, the
cement patio with sliding windows so
common to many newer dwellings pro-
vides an easy entrance for the prospec-
tive burglar.
Preventing robberies and arresting
burglars is a monumental task-only 20
to 40 per cent of all robberies ever end
in arrest, Krasny reports.
The life style of students-coming and
going at all hours of the night, leaving
doors unlocked, the transient nature of
the population-contributes to making
Ann Arbor a good city for burglars to
live and work in.
