Squelched screening.?
A dispute has resulted from Thursday night's at-
tempt to show a documentary film on Kent State
outdoors on the Duag. Organizer Thomas Bryne, who
planned to show the film on a bedsheet screen an-
chored to the side of the Economics building, says a
group of people gathered the view the screening
dispersed after "arbitrary" harassment by a Uni-
versity security officer. But University head of se-
curity Fred Davids says the cancelation was caused
only by poor weather and poor attendance. The
problem started when the Michigan Student Assem-
lY (MSA) issued Bryne a permit to screen the
film. Shortly after wards security officers informed.
MSAs of an amplification restriction on the area be-
cause of its nearness to the libraries. MSA president
Scott Kellman told [ryne the group would have to
move to Regents Plaza. Bryne said his permit said
nothing about any amplfication restrictions, told
Welnman to give him an order in writing, and

showed the film anyway "The permit did not say
I was prohibited to use the power," Bryne explain-
ed. Bryne said that after the showing, a security
officer appeared and began to harass people in the
group in a "vicious manner". "He was trying to
point out violilons which were after the fact,"
Bryne said. But seuity's Davids said security sim-
pty wanted the group to move. "We didn't break up
anything," he said. "I think what happened was the
weather was so bad and the turnout so poor that
they called it off If they want the plaza we'll turn
the power on and -ff for them. All they've got to
do is ask and we'll supply the power for them."
