Street people
get free fun
In an effort to offer local street people free recreational
activities suited to their interests and needs, the Summer City
program was begun on June 1, and, its coordinators feel, has
continued to run very successfully.
Every Monday; Wednesday, and Friday a blue school bus
rented for the program picks up a load of people on the corner
r ' of State and N. University streets and heads for nearby lakes
or activities such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking, canoeing,
.5| and, on one trip, organic farming.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays Summer City meets at Ozone
House, a local home for runaways, and volunteers teach leather
work, candlemaking, astrology, yoga and folk music.
Summer City also sponsors the weekly Wednesday rock
concerts on People's Plaza in front of the University's Adminis-
tration Bldg.
Although the Summer City program was created primarily
for the Ann Arbor street community and local young people
who don't have anything to do, it is open free of charge to
anyone who wants to participate.
The bulk of the participants have been local street people
and jr. high-aged youth, according to the program's coordina-
tors, but they have also included a number of University stu-
dents and even a 70-year-old woman on one trip.
The program is staffed primarily by volunteers and funded
by the Ann Arbor city government. Lunches for participants
have been donated regularly by several women's organizations.
According to Denise Moreault, one of Summer City's co-
ordinators, the program grew out of recognition that there were
practically no summer jobs available in Ann Arbor, and that a
growing number of street people were having trouble finding
food or community recreation programs to meet their interests
and needs.
-Daily-Gary vmlan Summer City is not a prefabricated program just handed to
interested paticipants, Moreault says, but a flexible, unre-

Belfast fighting continues
,as death toll reaches 23

BELFAST, Northern Ireland 0) Factional
warfare in the rubble of Belfast's barricaded
streets claimed five lives yesterday, raising to 23
the number killed in Northern Ireland's current
wave of violence.
Latest to die was a civilian cut down in Bel-
fast last night by a hail of gunfire aimed at
British soldiers. An army spokesman described
the victim as "a completely and utterly innocent
person" talking with friends near a military
Although there was a comparative lull in Bel-
fast last night, the fighting has been almost
continuous since dawn Monday. It has left more
than 100 persons injured and thousands home-
About half the shops and offices in the city
center were closed. With the bulk of bus services
suspended, few civilians were getting to work.
Food shops in outlying areas reported a run on
supplies, and shortages from a break down in
the distribution systems.
The first victim of the present outbreak died
Saturday. The others fell during intensified vio-
lence following massive arrests by British troops
of suspected terrorists of the outlawed I r i s h
Republican Army - (IRA). The suspects have
been interned without trial.
Late Show Tonight 10 p.m. I

An IRA leader, who arrived last night in Dublin,
capital of the Irish Republic, said his men were
running short on arms and ammunition and
would not have enough "if we have to continue
to fight the British army.
"It seems a clear tactic of the army to en-
gage our men in gun battles so that our supplies
will run out and leave the Catholic community
Civil rights in jobs, housing and voting had
been the major demands of the Catholic minor-
ity in Northern Ireland, until the most recent
wave of violence this year. Extremists from the
IRA, which wants to make divided Ireland into
one state, have since mounted a terrorist cam-
paign that has taken attention away from the
civil rights dispute.
Britain has more than 12,000 troops in Pro-
testant-dominated Northern Ireland. Informed
sources in Dublin estimated recently that the
IRA had 1,000 men under arms in the British-
ruled province's six counties,
British Home Secretary Reginald Maudling met
in London for 90 minutes Wednesday with Foreign
Minister Patrick Hillery of the Irish Republic.
No details were disclosed, but Hillery was said to
have pressed for an emergency conference of the
leaders of London, Belfast and Dublin.
