Paula Smith, youth coordina-
tor of the committee, explained
the relationship between the Da-
vis case and that of the Sole-
dad Brothers, who are charged
with the murder of a guard in
Coledad prison in California.
Davis' involvement in the de-
fense of these prisoners led to
what Smith termed a "frameup."

Claudia Morcum, co-chairwo-

"The March ordinance in fact
was an attempt on the part of
the city to outlaw all off-premise
billboards until a time at which
my decision could be over-
thrown," Mahinske commented
yesterday. "It was simply a de-
vice to get around the judg-
ment of the court."
Last week the city passed a
third sign control ordinance,
which promptly met with a fate

Though, Lax claims, "Judge
Mahinske undoubtedly had jur-
isdiction in the first case, we
are- no longer dealing with that
case. This is an entirely differ-

volves the same suhject."
Mahinske, however, yesterday

got it forever," he said.
He indicated however that he
was not enthusiastic ahout the
case and was continuing with it
only because it was his duty.

City officials, despite the
judge's assurances, are still un-
happy with the situation.
"This is a case of business in-

lic," said one official. He equated
the situation to that in Lansing,
where, he said, a "billboard lob-
by" had thwarted efforts to pass
