evival of dismissed
{ c' .. rater chargeso g

By DAN BIDDLE
In the latest of several
lengthy pretrial actions,
the prosecution has moved
to reinstate previously dis-
missed charges against one
of four persons, arrested in
a war protest "crater dig"
last May.
The prosecution also moved
yesterday to press the original
destruction of property charges
against 12 of 35 persons arrest-
ed at a second June 17, dig.
The first action, if sustained
by the court, would reinstate an
amended charge of trespassing
and "digging up the lawn and
the earth underneath the lawn'
against Jonathan Goldman, '73.
District Court Judge Sandorf
Elden originally d i s m i s s e d
charges against Goldman on
July 28.
David Goldstein, Goldman's
defense attorney, reacted with
surprise to the prosecution's
move, calling reinstatement of
of charges "an unheard-of
legal action."
Prosecution attorneys John
Sallin, Leonard Kowalski, and
Thomas Shea have refused to
comment on the reinstatement
motion or any other aspects of
the crater dig cases.
Elden originally dismissed the
case against Goldman due to the
prosecution's failure to file an
amendment to the charge within
the court - appointed time limit.
The amendment would have
changed the charge from "will-
ful and malicios destroction of
property" todthe current tres-
passing and digging charge.
The original May 19 war pro-
test was held to commemorate
the birthdays of Ho Chi Minh
and Malcolm X. In the all-day
affair, several hundred demon-
strators dug four symbolic bomb
craters on the Diag, only to see
them filled in the next day by
the University.
A second Diag dig June 17
ended quickly, as police moved
in and arrested 35 persons on
charges ranging from illegal
firework possession to assault of
a police officer in the brief con-
frostation.

Sierra Club expands

SAIGON (1)-North Vietnamese
gunners yesterday shot down
five U.S. fighter-bombers over
the North, the Viet Cong radio
reported yesterday. The broad-
cast did not mention the fate of
any airmen aboard the planes.
There was no comment from the
U.S. Command.
The U.S. Command acknowl-
edged that Navy jets had struck
at seven targets just outside
Thanh Hoa Monday, but denied
any raids inside the port city,
where Radio Hanoi said 100
civilians were killed or injured.
Targets listed by the command
when queried about the claim
included a bridge, fuel depots,
anti-aircraft sites and a barracks.
The raids near Thanh Hoa, 80
miles south of Hanoi, were not
reported in the command's Mon-
day evening communique.
North Vietnam's official news
agency claimed that U.S. air-
craft mounted nearly 100 strikes
against the city, heavily damag-
ing a cathedral area, a pharma-
ceutical workshop, a bakery and
a noodle factory.
On the ground, Communist
commandos c h a r g e d a South
Vietnamese marine position on
the southern fringe of Quang Tri
before daybreak y e st e r d a y.
AlRVN field reports said the
North Vietnamese were beaten
back after suffering almost 25
per cent casualties.
U.S. B52 bombers dropped
more than 200 tons of explosives
on six locations within a dozen
miles of Quang Tri. South Viet-
namese marines continue to be
stalled in their advance on the
Citadel, however.
The B52s also rained 600 tons
of bombs on targets northwest
and southwest of Siagon where
North Vietnamese infantry di-
visions are approaching the capi-

tal city. The residents of Saigon
were woken before dawn by the
thundering explosions.
Thirty miles north of Saigon,
the rear headquarters base at
Lai Khe was shelled for the fifth
consecutive day. Twenty-two
rounds were reported to have hit
the base, from, which South Viet-
namese commanders are direct-
ing a long-stalled attempt to open
the northern road to An Loc. One
ARVN soldier was reported
wounded.

While mentioning the Sierra
Club used to evoke images of
old - time conservationists and
bird - watchers, its recent acti-
vism in fighting environmental
battles has upped interest and
membership locally.
The 500-600 members in the
-Ann Arbor - Ypsilanti area have
brought ecological mattersup to
the judicial and legislative level,
in addition to sponsoring tradi-
tional outdoor activities.

The largest battle the local
club has been involved in, ac-
cording to its secretary, Jerome
Fulton, was a fight over the re-
zoning for Briarwood shopping
center in Ann Arbor.
The club and other environ-
mentalists were unsuccessful in
halting rezoning and construc-
tion of the center was approved.
The Sie rra Club had santed
the land to remain agricultural
to discourage business build-up
and high density residential de-
velopment.
Oddly enough, Fulton says the
Sierra Club's main purpose in
the Briarwood controversy was
to save the downtown ares from
economic destruction. Fulton
feels the new center will rob
the downtown area of its pa-
trons.
The local Sierra Club chap-
ter also opposed rezoning to al-
low the Chrysler car corporation
to build a large new parking lot
along IHron River Drive. "We
won that fight," Fulton says, de-
scribing the drive as "very
scenic".
Fulton adds tht sometimes
the club waits to be asked into
a rezoning fight by local in-
volved citizens, but usually takes
the initiative to preserve nature
areas that "can't talk for them-
selves."
Sierra Club members also plan
olatdoor activities, including ca-
noeing, bicycling, and hiking
trips.
