student jailed

for missile protest

By DEBORAH ROBINSON
Seventeen persons including one Univ-
rsity student were arrested yesterday
during demonstrations at the Walled
Lake headquarters of a defense depar-
tment contractor about 40 miles east of
Ann Arbor.
The arrests bring to 44 the number of
people charged since Monday with
trespassing and contempt of court for
protesting at a Williams International
Corp. plant where engines for the
Cruise Missile are produced.
ANITA RINGO, a 19-year-old LSA
sophomore, was taken into custody by
Oakland County police at about 7 a.m.
along with eight other members of an
Ann Arbor peace group after they
blocked the entrance to the plant.
,, « ..

She and six others in her group were
sentenced to 30 days in jail on contempt
of court charge. Two requested legal
council and their hearings were
deferred.
Another University student, LSA
senior Margaret Garrigues, was
arraigned in Walled Lake District
Court on charges of trespassing and co-
nspiracy to commit a misdemeanor.
She stood mute to the charges.
Garrigues was arrested at the plant
Wednesday.
ALL THE protesters face sentences
of up to 14 months in jail if convicted of
trespassing, contempt of court, and
conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor.
More arrests are expected today.

In all, more than 150 protesters
demonstrated in front of the Williams
plant yesterday, singing songs while at
least 13 Oakland Coutny Sheriff's of-
ficers stood by, checking workers' iden-
tifications and reading a court injun-
ction to the crowd.
The injunction advised demonstrators
that they were prohibited from
trespassing or blocking the entrance to
the Williams International plant.
RINGO'S GROUP, consisting of
members of the Michigan Alliance for
Disarmament and the Ann Arbor
Women's Peace Camp, was arrested
immediately after the demonstrators
entered the company's property.

Scuffle in dorm
leads to eviction
of football player

By NEIL CHASE
An Ann Arbor police officer lost his job this week
after an investigation into charges that he un-
necessarily beat two University students following
the Oct.22 Michigan-Iowa football game.
Officer Percy Wright, a twelve-year veteran of the
force, was dismissed because he reportedly falsified
his report of the stadium incident.
POLICE OFFICIALS yesterday refused to com-
ment on the case. "I'm not going to make any other
comments about it other than to tell you he's been
discharged," said Ann Arbor Police Executive Major
Walter Hawkins.

Wright could not be reached yesterday.
Medical student Chris Gordon, who was arrested
after he scuffled with Wright while trying to get onto
the field, and 'Mike Adams, the other student
arrested, had complained to detectives about
Wright's conduct.
GORDON SAID he was satisfied with the officer's
dismissal. "I think it's appropriate for the actions he
took at the game," said Gordon, who suffered a head
injury when Wright hit him with his nightstick. "I
don't think he should be carrying a gun.".
Wright, 34, has received several awards for his
