Barricades removed
after Miami violence

MIAMI (AP) - Police barricades
around troubled black communities
were removed yesterday and merchan-
ts promised to rebuild following two
nights of violence sparked by the
acquittal of a policeman in the fatal
shooting of a young black man.
"We're just in a watchful alert
state," Miami police spokesman Ray
Lang said.
ISOLATED burglaries were reported
early yesterday. Riot-trained police
squads were told to be ready for
another night of duty t just in case
violence flared again.
But police said they expected the city
to remain calm. "We're not an-
ticipating any problems,' said John
Jones, a spokesman for the countywide
Metro-Dade Police Department.
City and county police arrested some
370 people on various misdemeanor and
felony charges after city; police officer
Luis Alvarez' acquital.
AUTHORITIES reported that 37
people - including seven police officers
- were injured. Two of the injuredof-
ficers were wounded by glass shattered
when a bullet crashed into their patrol
car.
Two jurors at first voted to

convict city police officer Alvarez
of manslaughter in the death of a young
black man, but after a sometimes
heated discussion, the all-white panel
agreed to acquit him, one of the jurors
said.
Jim King, 53, said he and Robert
Mendelson, 65, at first supported con-
viction, but changed their minds Thur-
sday night during the two-hour
deliberations.
KING SAID he initially agreed with
the prosecution that Alvarez was
negligent because the patrolman should
have been able to arrest Nevell Johnson
safely.
Then he said he remembered the
judge's instruction that reasonable
doubt required an acquittal. Mendelson
couldn't be reached for comment.
There was no answer at his home
yesterday.
"We were charged that if there were
any area of doubt at all, the benefit of
the doubt goes to the defendant. There
were a couple areas of doubt," King
said.
"He (Alvarez) just picked the wrong
method at the wrong time. It was just a
day of wrong decisions."

"My grandmother marched to a dif-
ferent drum. Because of her so have I,"
Thomas said, explaining that her gran-
dmother has always been a liberated
woman. 'Inspiration has been the
means of our revolution," she said.
ACCORDING to Thomas, the 15
years since the feminist movement
began have enabled women to become
real people, because women have
grown to trust each other. A sense of
sisterhood has developed, she said.
This sisterhood, she added, among
other things "produces laws that punish
therapist, not the victim."

would be "one or more" meetings Sun-
day and that, as yesterday, they would
be limited to the nine chief delegates
and Saudi and Syrian observers.
Aides and advisors, who attended
previous full sessions, were asked to
leave the conference hall 15 minutes af-
ter the meeting got underway yester-
day, one conference source said.
"A lot of progress was made," said
Wadib Haddad, Gemayel's national
security adviser. "The discussions
were frank and fruitful and there were
no arguments."
Meanwhile, Moslem militias in west
Beirut and U.S. officials joined the hunt
for kidnapped U.S. diplomat William
Buckley.
Little progress was reported in the
search for Buckley, but Moslem Amal
militia spokesman Akef Haidar said his
men stopped'the American and his kid-
nappers at a checkpoint minutes before
the militiamen received orders to
rescue him.
The chief political officer of the U.S.
Embassy was dragged from his car
Friday outside his west Beirut apar-
tment and forced into a white Renault
sedan that sped to Khalde, nine miles
southeast of Beirut.
Haidar, political adviser to Amal
leader Nabih Berri, said a white
Renault with Buckley in the back seat
was stopped a few hours after the kid-
naping at an Amal checkpoint on the
highway near the Quazi area, 5-miles
south of Beirut.
The militiamen at the checkpoint had

She encouraged students to learn to
trust each other to help further the
gains of the equal rights movement,
and to base their relationships on
sisterhood.
"Try not to be jealous of each other.
Be supportive of each other. Don't be
jealous of the girl who has the nicest
dress of gets the better grade," she
said.
About 5,000 women participated in
seminars and workshops on career
strategies yesterday, the final day of a
two-day conference. This was the third
annual strategies conference sponsored
by A Better Way, a career consulting
firm in Detroit.
