PEP moves to aid
"Hooray for Jill Clayburghl She makes
the jump to star in this marvelous film."
By DAN OBERDORFER
The Prostitution Education Project
(PEP) of Ann Arbor yesterday announ-
ced it has filed a brief with the State
Court of Appeals, requesting two
women convicted 'on prostitution-
related charges in Detroit be released
The amicus curiae brief, filed Mon-
day, merely provides the court with ad-
vice from a concerned party. PEP
spokeswoman Carol Ernst said the
brief marks a new direction for PEP
which previously had not taken an ac-
tive public stance on specific cases.
PEP WAS formed in reaction to
arrests last November of 11 Ann Arbor
massage parlor workers who have been
charged with soliciting and accosting.
PEP-which also has a branch in
Detroit-works with the national
prostitution advocates' organization,
COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired
Ernst said the two Detroit women
were convicted of armed robbery from
a customer who had refused to pay the
fee. The women were sentenced to four
years each at the Huron Valley
Rehabilitation Center, she said, adding
that one functioned as a "protector" for
Ernst said prostitutes in Detroit
frequently need weapons to protect
themselves. "Police are notorious for
refusing to act on a prostitute's com-
plaint about assault against herself...
If a client refuses to pay they cannot go
to the police."
"PROSTITUTES HAVE no legal
recourse; they must resort to self-
help," she said.
In Michigan there are no state or-
dinances outlawing prostitution
specifically, Ernst added. Frequently
prostitutes will be charged with,
vagrancy, loitering, obstructing traffic,
soliciting, or for carrying weapons, she
Ernst said the recent arrests of 18
male customers in Ann Arbortmark a
welcome switch in enforcing the laws
equally. She added, however, "PEP
ultimately opposes both the legal
harrassment of and the moral spanking
of Johns (or women workers) by media
and law enforcement agencies typified
by publishing the names and addresses
of those arrested on the front page of
the Ann Arbor News."
Carol Ernst: 'Prostitutes
have no legal recourse;
they must resort to self-
The arrests may mean the start of a
trend which is more tolerant of
prostitution, according to Ernst. "When
you start arresting the men who have
important ties to the community, you
start getting some response," she
PEP would cooperate in a legal
defense for the men if asked, she said.

BLACK AND WHITE IN COLOR

In BLACK AND WHITE IN COLOR, a dusty outpost in French West Africa enters
[WWI because of] a yellowed newspaper from home, which reveals that the
conflict has been raging in Europe for six months. Until this moment in 1915,
the white colonists in the outpost have been on congenial terms with a near-
by, equally unaware German settlement. Now they must attack their neigh-
bors. More precisely-and this touches one of the film's controlling ironies-
