} It was quite a contrast from the large-
scale civil rights demonstrations of the
1960s. The national guard wasn't there
:and neither were the state troopers. But
iparticipants in Sunday's march
honoring he late Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. said they share something with
their'60s counterparts - a dream.
Like King - who would have been 55
,Sunday - the people who walked the
route from the Washtenaw County
Building on North Main,, down Miller
Road to Red Oak said they dream that
someday racial barriers will be over-
~come.
"(KING) HAS opened 'doors we never
dreamed could be opened," said John
Shelton who, with about 250 'others,
bundled up in winter coats, scarves and
mittens to pay tribute to the man who
devoted much of his life to the fight for
racial equality.
"(King's) dream, I think, is going to
remain alive as long as we're alive, as

iarchers honor King's birthday

.. W- -

long as our children are alive," Shelton
said.
The route covered about a mile-and-
a-half and ended up at Second Baptist
Church on Red Oak. A special service
honoring King, who was himself a
Southern Baptist minister, was held at
the church.
MARCHING behind a sign reading
"We shall overcome," church memb-
ers and townspeople said they were
continuing the struggle for equal rights.
"Dr. King stands for a lot of the stuff I
like to stand for, including non-violent
resistance," marcher Sol Metz said.. He
said, however, that King's dream is still
incomplete. "I think it's a long way
away. It's getting ... closer. We have to
keep working for it," he said.
"I think it's important that we not
only commemorate the man, but that
we keep a constant reminder of how far
we have to go = to achieve equality,"
said Ronald Woods, another marcher.

'(King has)opened doors we never
dreamed could be open. His dream, I think,
is going to -remain alive as long as we're
alive, as long as our children are alive.'
- John Shelton
marcher

King had a tremendous impact on
today's society.
"My five children have had the op-
portunity to be exposed to a better life
than I have," saidmSecondhBaptist
Church member Emma Wright. "(His
dream) is closer than it was." But, she
said, "If we don't have our marches
and our day, it will slip away."
Participants said marches such as
this one are a way to keep the spirit of
King's dream alive. "(The march) will
show that we are unified, that we didn't
forget," Emily Jones said.
Others agreed with Jones.
"We hope to establish . . . ap-
preciation for what he gave his life for.
And, hopefully, he didn't give it in
vain," said another marcher.
King's birthday will become a
national holiday - to be celebrated on
the third Monday of each January -
beginning in 1986.

"SOCIETY has to recognize that even
though we might have a theoretical
equality, we are quite a way from :..
(real) equality," he said.
Most marchers agreed with Woods.
Making King's dream a reality is a job
for the future. "I sure hope (his dream

is) realized tomorrow," said Carol
Shostall. "It's like taking a walk: We
can only take one step at a time," she
said, adding tht she was marching
because "I'm into peace and justice 100
percent."
Marchers at the rally agreed that

Law library suit dismissed

By MATT TUCKER
A $16 million civil rights suit filed
against the University by an Ann Arbor
man who was denied admittance to the
Law Library was dismissed from U.S.
District Court in Detroit last month.
Judge John Feikens dismissed the
case on the condition the University
provide a library research pass to Glen
Roberts, who was ordered not to enter
any University buildings following a

disagreement with security officers at
the library last term.
Roderick Daane, the University's
legal counsel, contended that Roberts
could have obtained a pass at any time,
but that he had declined to complete the
necessary forms.
He said the Law Library "fairly ac-
commodates" all law students,
professors, and lawyers who use the
building, and that Roberts must have

misinterpreted a no-trespassiig
posted at the building.

Roberts said in his suit that the'
securityofficials' order that he not en-
ter University buildings would have
barred him from treatment at
University Hospital and prevented him
from voting in some polling places.
Robert could not be reached for
comment on the dismissal.

S. Quad visit
(Continued from Page1h)
woman was on her way home and had
stopped at a friend's house to call a
taxi. She was on her way to meet the
cab when a man grabbed her from
behind, forced her to the ground, and
raped her, the report stated.
-Tinsey sdaid the woman was
treated at University Hospital. Police
are looking for a suspect described as
being about 6-foot, 2-inches tall,
muscular, and in his mid-20s.

for attacked; student raped

The second assault took place in a
South Quad restroom said Walt
Stevens,. University Director of
Safety. The victim, a 17-year-old
Saline resident, was visiting her
brother at a party when a 20-year-old
man, whom Sgt. Tinsey said the
woman knew, attacked her. The
woman's brother came to help her
and a fight ensued. None of those in-
volved required medical treatment,

Tinsey said.
HE SAID police questioned the
assailant and released him because
no one has filed a complaint yet.
Stevens said additional security in
the dorm could not have prey nted the
attack. "(It) wasn't a matter of
securing doors," he said. "It was a
matter of the consumption of
alcohol."

Debate had little effect, profs say

(Continued from Page 1)
Ohio Sen. John Glenn, who is Mon-
dale's strongest competitor, said the
forum highlighted important issues.
"This let things be ventilated a little bit
more," he said. "I, think the party and
the people of the country come out

ahead because they begin to see the dif-
ferences."
The candidates have been invited to
debate again in Des Moine Iowa, on
February 11. That session will precede
the state's February 20 caucuses. A

similar debate is scheduled for
February 23 in Manchester, New Ham-
pshire - five days before that state's
primary, the nation's first.
