r Wenesay, uly13, 977THE ICHGAN AIL

LANSING (UPI) - Although m o s
political moguls pooh-pooh the sugges-
tion, Gov. William Milliken says there is
"a very real possibility" he will retire
from politics next year.
But, in an interview with United Press
International yesterday, the governor
also conceded that Republican Sen. Rob-
ert Griffin's decision to retire has made
it more difficult for him to withdraw
from public life.
"I WOULD say that his decision not to
seek re-election has placed a further
sense of party responsibility on me, and
that is a consideration among many in
the decision that I will be making," said
Milliken, the Michigan GOP's titular
head and leading ballot box attraction.-

Kent St. protesters
arreste by police:

KENT, ()hio t - The par-
ents of a student killed during
an antiwar demonstration at
Kent State University on May
4, 1970, were among the first
of more than 190 persons ar-
rested yesterday in a peaceful
protest against plans for con-
struction near the site of the
Sgt. John Peach of university
police said 193 persons were
taken into custody - with lit-
tle resistance - after they de-
fied a court order to leave a
section of campus where the
university plans to build a $6
million gymnasium annex.
SARAH AND Martin Scheuer,
parents of Sandy Lee Scheuer
who was killed when National
Guardsmen fired on the 1970
antiwar demonstration, were
led away by police as the ar-
rests began.
Sarah Scheuer said she de-
cided yesterday morning to be
arrested. "I don't want the
gym built there," shte said nat-
ter being takeninto custody.
The Scheuers' arrest was fol-
lowed by that of Alan Canfora,
who was wounded at the dem-
onstration seven years ago.
"The campus police handled
themselves admirably," said
Canfora, standing outside the
jail with his hands handcuffed
behind his back.
"I FEEL WE learned a lot

frot seven years ago Maybe
my peers and friends don't un-
derstand . . . but this is a con-
tinuation of May 4, 1970."
Many of those arrested were
part of a group who had camp-
ed - some since May 12 - on
the construction site which is
near where four students were
killed and nine wounded when
National Guardsmen fired into
a crowd of protesters demon-
strating against the Cambodian

AATA union talks
progress steadil1y
A state-appointed mediator was present yesterday as nego-
tiators for striking Transportation Employes Union (TElU) mem-
hers and the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) resumed
contract talks after nion members walked off the job at 12:01
a.m. Monday bringing AATA service to an abrupt halt.
Following yesterday's negotiations, Steve McCarger, member
of the TEU bargaining team said three of the unsettled issues had
been resolved.
"The issues represent ten per cent of those on the table,"
McCarger stated.
AN ESTIMATED 8,000 daily AATA commuters have been
forced to find alternate means of transportation since the 215
bus workers began their work stoppage after rejecting AATA's
final contract offer late Sunday night.

License plate mutilation. A serious crime under
anyone's standards, but salesman Victor Graham
Jefferys, 23, of Burlington, N.C., is proud to be
a scofflaw. Dragged before the judge on a charge
of having folded his license plae over so that
the slogan "First in Freedom" was obscured Jef-
ferys told the court he didn't think "North Caro-
lina has any monopoly on freedom, no more than
the other 49 states," and cited a Supreme Court
opinion that states have no authority to require
citizens to display slogans or mottoes. The judge

agreed. and dropped the charge. We can see the
legal precedent now - what happens when some
frustrated Arkansas resident complains that his
state is really not the "Land of Opportunity," or
someone challenges Minnesota's claim to be the
"Land of 1,000 Lakes?"
