Wednesday, June 24, 1970

By The Associated Press
In the wake of demonstrations that
erupted in many of the nation's campuses
during the last semester, 32 of the 50
states have enacted laws designed to pre-
vent further disorders.
Included in the laws a r e provisions
---Revoke the financial aid of students
engaged in illegal demonstrations:
-Penalize anyone who damages school
property or interferes with campus ac-
-Bar outsiders from college campuses;
--Dismiss faculty members involved in
A survey of the 50 states shows that
bills relating to campus upheavals were
introduced in 40 states during the 1969
and 1970 legislative sessions. Bills were
passed and signed in 32 of the states.
Bills were defeated in six states, and in
two other states, measures are still pend-
Those legislatures that defeated cam-
pus bills and the 10 that took no action
at all generally were in states w h e r e
there were few, if any, demonstrations.
In some states, legislators argued suc-
cessfully that existing controls were
strict enough.
No action was taken in Alabama, Alas-
ka, Maine, Mississippi, New Hampshire,
Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Da-
kota, Washington and Wyoming.

as an unfortunate imitation of

Conversely, the strongest, most com-
prehensive bills came in states that had

the most violent, most prolonged demon-
strations, including California, New York,
Wisconsin and Ohio.
Many of the laws dealt with existing
offenses - assault, trespass, property
destruction - but made clear their ap-
plication on campuses and often enlarged
the power of campus police to make ar-
rests. Violation of most of the laws was
classified a misdemeanor, with penalties
of under a year in jail and fines less than

Michigan's disruption statute
On June 2, Gov. William Milliken signed the following bill aimed
at curbing campus disorders in Michigan. Under the new law, a judge
may impose a jail sentence of up to 90 days and a fine of between $200
and $1000 on persons who:
-"Intentionally constitute a clear and substantial risk of phys-
ical harm or injury to other persons;"
-"Intentionally constitute a clear and substantial risk of damage
to or the destruction of the property of the institution;" or
-Participating in the "unreasonable prevention of disruption of
the customary and lawful function of the institution by occupying
space necessary (for carrying out the institution's functions) by use
or threat of force,"
In addition, the bill imposes a sentence of up to $500 and 30 days
in jail on persons who refuse to leave a campus building when ordered
to by the president of the institution, "or his designee."

Slater is hopeful that things
can be better, yet solemn about
our responsibilities. "I can best

Changes in
city conduct
code asked
Following a public hearing next Mon-
day night, City Council will vote on pro-
posed changes in Ann Arbor's disorderly
conduct ordinance that is designed, ac-
cording to City Attorney Jerold Lax, to
clarify violations that may be uncon-
stitutionally vague, unenforceable, or out-
If passed, the amendment to the pre-
sent ordinance would eliminate a present
law against fortune telling for hire or
profit, and "quarreling" in a public place.
It would also redefine the loitering
statute to bar persons from remaining in
a public place after closing hours, in
contrast to the present law prohibiting
persons from standing in a park or on a
sidewalk in such a way that would "ob-
struct the free and uninterrupted passage
.of the public."
A current law forbidding one to "beg
in any public place" would be changed to
permit begging in cases where the beggar
does not "misrepresent his economic or
physical condition to the public."
Citing public concern over changes in
the present statute, Councilman James
Stephenson (R-fourth ward) requested
at last Monday's City Council meeting
that public hearing be held on the mat-
At the council meeting,- Councilman
Lloyd Fairbanks (R-fifth ward) said that
many local businessmen and citizens ob-
jected to panhandlers. He complained
that the proposed changes "would make
begging legal."
Councilman Joseph Edwards (R-third
ward) complained that the present or-
dinance against panhandling was not
being adequately enforced and supported
a change in the proposed amendments
that would have retained the wording of
the present ban on begging.
The motion was defeated, 6 to 5, with
Mayor Robert Harris and the five Dem-
ocratic councilmen opposed.
Lax responded to Republican criticism
of the change in the begging ordinance
saying. "it should not be a crime, to be
The proposed changes in the city or-
dinance were prepared by an ad hoc
committee on Police Community Rela-
tions and by a committee that included
the staff of the city attorney's office. Lax
said that further recommendations to
amend the controversial sections of the
ordinance regarding obscenity and inde-
cent exposure would be submitted to
council at a later time.
All citizens will be permitted to speak
during the hearing, which will be held
as a part of the regular council meeting
on the second floor of City Hall at 7:30.

The State Court of Appeals in Lansing
yesterday upheld a lower court decision
denying local voting rights in Ann Arbor
to three former students of the Univer-
sity, thereby confirming the right of the
Legislature to define "residence" for vot-
ing purposes.
Also in Lansing yesterday, the state
senate passed a proposed constitutional
amendment which would lower the state's
voting age from 21 to 18. The amend-
ment proposal was passed in a similar
form by the House recently.
The three former students had chal-
lenged the constitutionality of the Legis-
lature's right in regard to aspecific statute
which states that "no student shall be
deemed to have gained or lost residenc-'
by reason of his being a student at any
institution of higher' learning."
Under this law, three students-Sally

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (4P) -Next
week's withdrawal of all U.S. ground
forces from Cambodia is expected to
have little direct effect on this coun-
try's chances of military survival
against North Vietnam and the Viet
However, with the final countdown
under way, the American pullout June
30 seems certain to undermine morale
in Phnom Penh, where some have con-
tinued to hope that somehow the Unit-
ed States could be drawn into a long-
range major role in the fighting here.
There is no question that the mili-
tary situation here is far more critical
than it was before U.S. troops entered
Cambodia. Some Western diplomats
believe the arrival of U.S. and South
Vietnamese troops may have led to the
apparent decision in Hanoi to destroy
the regime of Gen. Ion Nol instead of
merely carving out enough of eastern
Cambodia to insure needed operational
bases for the war in South Vietnam.
The South Vietnamese incursion
aside, the U.S.-entry into Cambodia's

U. S.

eastern provinces caused early majo *
confusion within the Communist com-
mand. This confusion probably en(
when it became apparent that U.
ground forces would not overster
21.7-mile line of maximum penr
At that point fears of an American
threat to Hanoi troops fighting again
the Cambodian government could be
put aside and the Communist com-
mand could turn to the greatly simpli-
fied problem of tackling government
and South Vietnamese units.
Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Mel-
vin R. Laird said yesterday in London
that the results of the U.S. campaign
in Cambodia "far exceeded the expec-
tations" of Gen. Creighton W. Abrams
when the American commander in
Vietnam "recommended the sanctuar-
ies operation."
"The tactical success of the Cam-
bodian operation is self evident," Laird
told a news conference. "It is self
evident in the destruction of caches
of arms, supplies, material, bunkers
and food."
