statute that deals with conten-
tion "was held to be vague" and
therefore unconstitutional, ac-
cording to Levin.
Meanwhile, most of the appeals
cases are still before circuit
court. According to local attor-
ney Donald Koster, who is hand-
ling "a bunch," perhaps most,
of the appeals, the steps of the
procedure include filing an ap-
peals claim and a brief for the
defendant, the filing of an "ap-
pearance" is filed by the county,
and finally a circuit court judge
grants or rejects the appeal.
According to Koster, most of
the material has been filed, but
the court will decide the cases
"in its own time." Koster would
give no estimate on when all the
cases would be through the cir-
cuit courts.
Asst. County Prosecutor John
Hensel, who is handling the ap-
peals for the county, says that
"appeals are bound to take a
fair amount of time no matter
what."
The circumstances of these par-
ticular appeals seem somewhat
strange, according to one appel-
lant, who was convicted in No-
vember, 1969. He says that Kos-
AA concerts
to continue
Sunday afternoon rock con-
certs in Gallup Park will con-
tinue this week after a one
week break last weekend.
The concerts, sponsored by
the Ann Arbor Tribal Council's
community park program, us-
ually begin between 2 and 2:30
p.m., but the park opens about
an hour before concert time.
The groups scheduled to per-
form this week will be SRC,
Rodriguez, Whiz Kids, and Ju-
lius Victor.
The concert was cancelled last
week due to a prior arrange-
ment between the city and Con-
cordia Lutheran Junior College
under which the concert would
be moved.
The alternate site proposed
by the city however was judged
unacceptable by the Community
Park Program and the concert
was cancelled.

ter filed his appeal, but the coun-
ty "did not prosecute the appeals
for a long time. All of a sudden,
it picked the cases up again."
Hensel agrees that there was
"nothing done" on the cases
"for a considerable amount of
time," but says that he has only
been in his present position since
April,
The appeals are being made
on several aspects of the case.
According to an appeals brief
filed by Koster on behalf of
eight persons who were given
a consolidated trial, there are
five bases for the appeal, and
Koster says most of his briefs
are similar.
The argument contends that
first, if the defendants are
challenging the constitution-
ality of a statue, they need not
establish their own conduct as
being legal under the chal-
lenged law; and second that
the defendants are challenging
the contention statute -as un-
constitutional "on its face as
being vague and overbroad."
A third argument says that
the prosecution did not es-
tablish a prima facie case. "De-
fendants' arrest at the scene of
the sit-in, without proof that
there was a disturbance, that
Defendants actively partici-
pated in the crime charged,
and that Defendants were the
parties participating in an un-
proven 'disturbance,' does not
establish a prima fade case,"
the brief states.
The fourth argument charges
that convictions "violate due
process of law," because of lack
of "evidentiary basis except
their presence at the scene of
the 'sit-in'."
The final argument for the
appeal contends that the de-
fendants should have been al-
lowed five peremptory jury
challenges each, instead of two
for the groupasa whole, A
peremptory challenge allows
the defendant tor defendants)
to eliminate a potential juror
without listing a reason.
Meanwhile, the remnants of
the 107 protesters are grow-
ing older, graduating and mov-
ing on, still faced with the pos-
sibility of a seven day jail sen-
tence and $240 fine (the sen-
tence and fine are stiffer for
the three second offenders, all
of whom are appealing their
cases), for a sit-in held two
years ago.

per cent of that figure was
saved through the salary budget,
while the remaining 40 per cent_
was cut from equipment costs.
"We left several positions un-
filled this year," he explains,
"including lab technicians and
one'secretary." No one had to be
fired, however, to make the sav-
ings, he says.
In the engineering college the
loss of money for equipment will
be felt severely. "We have long
felt that our equipment budget
has not been adequate and we
have worked hard trying to keep
our equipment up to date," Van
Wylen says.
League Manager Wilma Steke-
tee reports the cutbacks have
forced a reduction in office help
and a "doubling-up" of duties.
Steketee herself has taken on
the added responsibility of man-
aging the North Campus Com-
mons with no increase in her
pay.
Food is currently prepared at
the League and trucked to the
North Campus Commons. "We
found that central preparation
of food and the consolidation of
the administrative staffs was a
more efficient way of operat-
ing," she explains.

In the chemistry department,
Assoc. Chairman Robert C. Tay-
lor says that all the required
savings were made by not filling
certain faculty vacancies and
cutting out several "temporary
jobs."
Taylor claims that the literary
college sent out a letter to all
of its departments directing
them to make the three per cent
s a v i n g s from their salary
budgets rather than dipping into
their funds for materials.
Last night. Associate LSA
Dean Hayden Carruth declined
to comment on the alleged di-
rective, but sources in other LSA
departments have backed up
Taylor's statement.
