By SHARON SILBAR
More than 300 people braved bitter
cold Sunday to march the streets of Ann
Arbor to commemorate the fifty-fourth
birthday of civil rights leader Martin
Luther King, Jr.
The march, which followed a one-
mile route from the Washtenaw County
Building to the Second Baptist Church
on Red Oak Street, was followed by a
lengthy memorial service at the chur-
ch.
AS PART OF the ceremonies, Mayor
Louis Belcher read a proclamation
naming Sunday Martin Luther King,
Jr. Day.
Following the march, speakers
focused on the theme "Toward
Fulfilling The Dream" to . draw
parallels between the procession and
the marches King led on Selma, Ala.
and Washington during the 1960s.

"We are meeting the challenge
King's legacy created," said Richard
Garland, organizer and chairman of the
Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial
Committee. "(He) left us with a way by
which we can move forward."
"The dream is that one day people will
be judged by the content of their
character and not the color of their
skin," said Calvin Williams, vice
president of Hunter and Walker
Manufacturing in Detroit.
Ronald Wood, director for Afro-
American and African Studies at
Eastern Michigan University, warned
against delaying efforts for reform un-
til a single leader appears.
"No race can put its development on
hold in anticipation of the emergence of
leadership," he said. "The collective of
the group must of its own initiative do
those things."

ACCORDING TO Business Manager
Roy Greer, the union decided to picket
after Troy Neil, the company's only
employee from the area, was laid off
last Wednesday.
The two groups reached a settlement
yesterday afternoon after many of the
other workers on the site refused to
cross the picket line following their lun-
ch break.
Ceco officials agreed to rehire Neil
today and to secure a majority of future
employees from the local union.
GREER SAID tensions had been
building between the union and the
company since mid-fall, shortly after
construction began on the site.
Last November the union asked the
company to sign a labor contract
New Hairstyles for
'83
DASCOLA STYLISTS
Liberty off State........668-9529
East U, at So. U..........662-0354
Arborland ..............971-9975
Maple Village ...........761-2733

similar to the one eventually signed
today, Greer said. Ceco officials
refused to sign the agreement, although
they hired Neil. The union did not press
the issue.
Then last Wednesday Neil was laid
off. Mike Martindale, sales manager
for Ceco, said he thought Neil was let go
because there was not enough work for
the men, not because the company was
averse to hiring local help.
Dick Bepee, foreman at the site, also
cited a shortage of work as a reason for
Neil's dismissal.
Donald Hall, the supervisor for Ceco
who negotiated the settlement yester-
day, could not be reached for comment.
Neil said the union decided to picket
to bring a speedy end to the
negotiations.
"Advertising is one of the fastest
ways of solving the problem," he said.
Police
notes
Young trespassers caught
Campus security caught three boys
wandering around in Hutchins Hall
early Sunday morning after they
allegedly broke into the building. Ac-
cording to Walt Stevens, director of
University security, the trio apparently
entered through a door on the hall's
south side and took some empty cans.
Security guards kept them in custody
until police arrived. The boys were
later released to their parents.
Knife-wielding woman
arrested
A 26-year-old woman was arrested
after she allegedly pulled a knife on two
Briarwood Shopping Mall security
guards trying to stop her for shoplif-
ting. Police said the guards had
followed the woman out .of the com-
plex's Hudson store about 8:30 Friday
night. When they tried to take her into
custody, the woman allegedly began
threatening them with a knife. The
guards managed to get the weapon
away from her and held her until police
arrived.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Justices uphold ruling barring
after hours school prayer
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court, steering clear of the hot political
issue of prayer in public schools, refused yesterday to allow school children
to hold religious meetings in classrooms after hours.
The justices let stand a ruling declaring unconstitutional the Lubbock,
Texas, school system's "equal access" policy, which gave elementary and
high school student religious groups the same use of classrooms as non-
religious groups.
Their action, in a brief order, came three days after a federal judge in
Alabama left intact state laws allowing teacher-led prayers in public
schools. The district judge's decision, which eventually may end up at the
high court, was'based on his belief the Supreme Court had misread history
when it banned such prayer 21 years ago.
In turning down the Lubbock prayer case, the justices ignored warnings
by two dozen senators who said legislation proposed to strip federal courts of
their power to decide school prayer cases is a result of a widespread belief
courts are "hostile to religion."
Five killed in bridge collapse
ANTWERP, Ohio - Five people killed in the collapse of a small bridge
over a rural culvert had no warning that danger lurked ahead on the
blackened road, an investigator said yesterday.
Sgt. Lewis Hohman of the Ohio Highway Patrol said the bridge crumbled
shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday and carried away the two-lane blacktop road-
way, but the drivers of four cars could not see the hole in time to stop.
The stone and asphalt span was only 10 yards long with no overhead sup-
port, he said.
"The bridge collapsed shortly before the cars went in," Hohman said.
Three cars heading in one direction and a fourth in the opposite lane
plunged 10 feet into a dry creekbed in the space of a few minutes, one vehicle
landing on top of two others.
Chrysler fires wildcat strikers"
DETROIT - Chrysler Corp. said yesterday it has fired five workers,
suspended 85 more, and reprimanded 134 others who took part in a wildcat
strike last week at the automaker's technical center.
A spokesman for United Auto Workers Local 212 said a strike
authorization vote has been called for Thursday in protest of the Chrysler ac-
tion. If the vote is approved, the case will go before the union's international
executive board which will decide what further action the union members
will take.
The workers walked off their jobs at the Outer Drive technical center last
iWednesday after they were allegedly told they could not drink coffee at their
work stations.
The wildcat strike lasted only a few hours and the workers went home for
the rest of the day at the direction of the union.
U.S. perceives Soviet threat
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon envisions a "major conflict" between the
United States and the Soviet Union if Moscow attempts to seize Persian Gulf
oil reserves with conventional forces.
A secret 136-page Defense Department document considers the region so
vital it directs preparations for introducing U.S. forces into the area even
"should it appear that the security of access to Persian Gulf oil is
threatened" and there is no outright invasion.
The document, titled "Fiscal 1984-1988 Defense Guidance," a key com-
ponent of the administration's strategy for countering the Soviets, spells out
use of non-nuclear forces worldwide to combat perceived Soviet aggression
and directs the buildup of U.S. forces over the next five years to make sure
military muscle exists to enforce that policy.
"If widening the war by conventional means and total mobilization are in-
sufficient to ensure a satisfactory termination of war," the document said,
"the United States will prepare options for the use of nuclear weapons.
Klan campaigns for book ban
THREE RIVERS - A Ku Klux Klan leader and a mother and son minister
team have united in a campaign to force the Three Rivers Public Library to
remove all books containing favorable references to homosexuality.
The battle focuses on three books - two of which are missing from the
library - and has embroiled the community of 7,350 people since last May.
Also involved in the controversy is Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Siljander, a
Three Rivers native who last fall sought to restrict minors from reading
books on homosexuality at the public library in nearby Niles.
Siljander joined the Three Rivers brouhaha Saturday when he sent an aide
to tell members of the Freedom Council, a conservative Christian

organization, he was not connected with the Klan's efforts.
Leaders of the book-banning campaign are the Rev. Edward Varner, his
mother, the Rev. Vivian Varner of the Trinity Full Gospel Mission, and
Daniel Vincent Emery.
