Appeal brief filed
by Native Americans
By PATRICIA HAGEN
Robert Treadway, who was suspended
this week as director of the city's Per-
sonnel/Human Rights Department,
resigned from the post yesterday. 'He
has been reassigned to the position of:
Senior Personnel Technician under an
agreement with city officials.
"Simply.. . our administration did
Ot feel6. ..he had the capacity to be a
department head, " Mayor Louis
Belcher said. "He's a good personnel
"IT'S OUR FAULT," Belcher added.
"I think we should have done a far, far
better job of screening applicants when
the department head was hired seven
months ago," Belcher said. "I take the
blame for that.".
Treadway said he resigned because
the personnel section of the joint Per-
'*nnel/Humnan Rights Department is
understaffed. "If we can't have the
staff we need ... basically, I'd rather
not take the responsibility (for running
the department)," Treadway ex-
plained: The department has been
criticized for its inadequate enfor-
cement of Ann Arbor's human rights
ordinance due to a lack of funds.
In his new post, Treadway will deal
exclusively with personnel matters.
Presently, only one staff member in the
five member department is assigned to
"WE NEED FIVE (staff members)
just on personnel for a city of this size,"
Treadway estimated. I0 addition to.
human rights matters, the department
works with hiring, recruitment, com-
pensation studies, and labor relations.
He explained that since the functions
of the two departments "are so dif-
ferent" he will advocate that the Per-
sonnel/Human Rights Department be
separated and that a director be ap-
pointed to each one.

In the latest development in a nine-
year court battle between three Native
American tribes and the University, a
local attorney this week appealed a
lower court ruling, charging that it
merely legitimized the "thievery" of
the tribes' land by the University.
The case, filed in 1971, seeks to force
the University to provide Michigan
Native Americans with free education
on the basis of an 1817 treaty which
ceded nearly 2,000 acres of Indian land
to the University.
ANN ARBOR attorney Elmer White
presented a brief Tuesday bfore the
State Court of Appeals asking that a
1978 Washtenaw County Circuit Court
ruling against the Native Americans be
White claims that the 1817 land
cession was in effect a legal agreement
to provide free education to the Native
Americans. He is representing Paul
Johnson, a Native American and a
University graduate, who is acting as
plaintiff on behalf of Native Americans
in three Michigan tribes - the Chip-
pewa, Potawatomi, and Ottawa.
After a non-jury trial in August, 1978,
Washtenaw County Circuit Court Judge
Edward Deake agreed with University
Counsel Roderick Daane that the land
cession was a gift and that there was no
agreement to educate the Native
DAANE'S DEFENSE of the Univer-
sity, which he reiterated yesterday,
claims that not only was there no legal
trust to educate the Native Americans,
but also, if such a trust ever existed,
later treaties relieved the University of
any responsibility to educate the Native
White confirmed last night that he
would again use historical evidence to
argue before the appellate court that
the Native Americans did not intend for
the land to be an outright gift.
Daane now has forty days to file a
counter-brief for presenting the
University's side to the appellate court,
and the court, a panel of three judges,
will then hear oral arguments from
both sides. A ruling is not expected for

up the paper and realized what had

government officials did not anticipate
the invasion, Whiting said they
wouldn't have been in any better shape
if they knew it was coming. "What
would they have done if they did know it
would happen?" he asked.
And how long does Whiting think the
Russians will remain in Afghanistan?
"Long enough to setup a strong Afghan
army in order to control the country,"
he said. Whiting does not foresee any
movement of Russian troops across the

LADY SINGS THE BLUES
In her Academy Award winning film debut, DIANA ROSS captures the essence
of Billie Holiday, America's greatest blues singer. The face, the figure and the
sound of Ms. Ross is completely Billie Holiday. Totally committed to its
subject, the film brilliantly portrays the talent, despair and vulnerability of
the Great Lady Day, with BILLY DEE WILLIAMS and RICHARD PRYOR.

DES MOINES-The rolling corn-
ffelds and quiet towns of Iowa have
'come the nation's hotbed of presiden-
dial politics, as this state prepares to
host the first official voting of the 1980
election. On Monday night, Iowans will
enter schools, churches, and meeting
halls in each of, thestt '#,,531 precin-
cts to initiate the process of selecting
their delegates to the Xinocratic and
Republican national conventions.
Although the actual delegates will not
be picked Monday, anyone who is
serious about being the next President
the United States has an active
organization here. And with the
caucuses only two days away the can-
didates have stepped up their efforts to
gather as much last minute support as
PRESIDENT CARTER, the
Democrat's acknowledged frontrunner,
has by far the most masive show of for-
ce in Iowa, with 35 paid staff workers,
as well as members of his Cabinet and
, amily who are scheduled to make per-
nal appearances here this weekend.
Vice President Walter Mondale, who
has campaigned actively in Iowa in
place of the president for the last
several weeks, made two more brief
steps yesterday in Algona and Mason
Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)
who is challenging Carter for the
Democratic nomination, yesterday
tried to boost his underdog campaign
with a string of four personal ap-
pearances across the state. At press
conferences in Cedar Rapids and
Davenport, Kennedy repeatedly
challenged the president on both his
foreign and domestic policies, and
reminded Iowans to show up at Monday
"We can deal effectively with the
principal challenges of our time," Ken-
nedy said at a stopover at the Cedar
Rapids airport. "I find no malaise
among Iowans. Iowans believe, as I
believe, that we can recapture control
of our destiny and move with confiden-
ce towards the 1980s."
KENNEDY WAS accompanied by his
wife Joan, and his daughter, Kara. Mrs.
Kennedy urged a group of her
husband's supporters to get to the polls
on Monday "for the future of the coun-
try, and the future of Teddy."

ALSO YESTERDAY, the Regents
voted to meet at their next session with
. a local developer who is seeking to buy
a parcel of land from the University
near Forest and Washtenaw Avenues.
The developer, John Stegeman, wants
to develop a high-rise building in the
area east of the Church Street parking
structure, to include apartments, con-
dominiums, and a parking structure.
Stegeman has sought unsuccessfully
to buy 16,659 sq. ft. of land next to his
property for the high-rise structure.
Representatives of a citizens group will
also be invited to meet with Regents.
The action is in response to request by
members of the South University Mer-

Roach (D-Saline) asked University
President Harold Shapiro to clarify the
University's position in regard to a cat
mutilation which occurred in early
"University policy is that if we have
people who are somehow associated'
with the University involved in issues of
that nature off campus, it's a matter for
civil and criminal proceedings and
that's a matter for the city or state to
pursue in the normal manner. We don't
make any attempt to shield students or
other representatives of the campus
from that and we made no attempt to do
that in this case," Shapiro said.

A documentary built along the lines of A HARD DAY'S
NIGHT, this film stresses informality and the Beatles' quiet
spontaneous ability. Featuring several songs never re-

The zaniest of the live-action Beatle films, HELP! is a series
of hilarious and improbable adventures. Members of a
bizarre religious cult are after one of. Ringo's rings for a

chasing our four heroes throughout England, Switzerland

Investigators said a white male, who

at a National Bank of °Ypsilanti teller
Thursday afternoon before he escaped,
may be armed and is considered
dangerous. It is unknown how the tall
man, wearing a grey ski mask, gloves,
and a bulky winter coat, managed to
carry the 70-75 pounds of money from
the bank's office at 133 W. Michigan
Ave. No shots were fired:
THE ROBBERY occurred at 3:15
p.m. Thursday when the gunman,
described by FBI investigators as six
feet, 180 pounds, forced teller David
Daugherty, 18, to open the vault. The
suspect then used his gun to strike
