Commission criticizes arrests
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT has assured Pakistan it will not cur-
tail shiploads of ammunition and military spare parts still due to
arrive in Pakistan from the U.S., Foreign Office sources reported
The Indian government, which had no immediate comment on
the report, had asked the U.S. to halt all military and economic aid
to Pakistan as a way to end civil strife in East Pakistan and to in-
sure the return of seven million Pakistani refugees now in India.
MICHIGAN INDIANS reacted angrily yesterday when Warren
Shapton, deputy director of the Department of Natural Resources,
declared at a meeting that heavy netting of lake trout by Indian
commercial fishermen could not continue.
Shapton's statement brought vows from Indians attending the
meeting of the Michigan Commission on Indian Affairs that they
would protect their rights under ancient treaties to unlimited fishing,
recently affirmed by the Michigan Supreme Court.
Indians have been netting large amounts of lake trout for com-
mercial sale and some white commercial and sports fishermen re-
portedly have been cutting the Indians' nets, prompting threats of
retaliation by Indians.
THE GENERAL MANAGER of the Michigan State Fair-
grounds, E. J. Keirns, has declared the fairgrounds in Detroit off-
limits to future rock festivals following last weekend's drug-plagued
Gov. William Milliken had already ordered his staff Tuesday to
explore ways of preventing future rock concerts on state property
after learning one person had died and 21 had been hospitalized for
reactions to drugs taken at last weekend's concert.
JAMES HOFFA, former Teamsters Union president, obtained
yesterday from the U.S. Board of Parole an Aug. 20 review of his
request for parole from federal prison. The hearing was originally
set for next June.
George Reed, chairman of the parole board, said the board found
sufficient new evidence to warrant an appellate review by the board.
Hoffa has been in prison at Lewisburg, Pa. since March, 1967,
serving sentences totalling 13 years for convictions on jury-tamper-
ing and mail-fraud charges. He has twice been turned down by the
board in attempts to win parole.
PRIME MINISTER EDWARD HEATH declared yesterday he is
staking the life of his Conservative government on his decision to
lead Britain into the European Common Market, calling on the na-
tion to choose between joining the market or facing a long slide into
political and economic impotence.
Victor Feather, chief of the Trades Union Congress, immediately
declared that the conditions for entry negotiated by the government
were unacceptable, raising the prospect of opposition by nine million

"Even though in some cases
there were as many officers as
prisoners, and the officers were
doing nothing of an official na-
ture, no effort was made" to fill
out the field arrest forms, the re-
Last week Wilson appeared on
television, saying if faced again
with the situation which occur-
red May 3-5 when thousands of
antiwar demonstrators attempt-
ed to stop Washington traffic, he
would again suspend the use of
field arrest forms and order mass
arrests and jailings.
According to the commission,
one of the chief factors which
hindered the city attorney's of-
fice from successfully prosecut-
ing those arrested was the fact
that the police entered a charge
of "disorderly conduct" in nearly
"A typical exchange," the
commission said, "would be for
someone arrested while walking
down the street to be told that
the grounds for arrest were fail-
ure to move on. Some people
were told they were jaywalking.
The blanket charge or -disorderly
conduct entered later . . . contra-
dicted the oral charges first as-
serted in many cases."
This discrepancy, as well as a
general lack of sufficient evi-
dence, have led to a very low
conviction rate. Out of the first
3,949 Mayday cases to come be-
fore the District of Columbia Su-
perior Court, only 79 convictions
In further developments stem-
ming from the Mayday arrests.
the American Civil Liberties Un-
ion (ACLU) has announced it
plans to file a class action suit
against the Washington city gov-
ernment and has publicly adver-
tised for Mayday arrestees to
sign affidavits to aid its action.
According to one ACLU spokes-
man, the suit would seek to en-
join the Washington police de-
partment from making further
mass arrests through suspended
arrest procedures, to expunge all
arrest records of cases not prose-
cuted, and to obtain monetary
