Cl~rotester s chagsdropped; trial continues

Trespassing charges were dropped last
night against a second-year law student,
who was among 26 demonstrators arrested
during a protest of the CIA's recruitment on
campus last October.
The ten other defendants who were on
trial with law student Dmitri Iglitzin, most
of whom are University students, will have
to return to 15th District Court today to hear
the jury's verdict. Nine also face charges of
trespassing while Ann Arbor resident Dave
Buchen is accused of hindering and op-
posing a police officer.

JUDGE GEORGE Alexander accepted a
'directed verdict' from Molly Reno, attor-
ney for law student Dmitri Iglitzin, which
dropped charges against Iglitzin on the
grounds of insufficient evidence of his
presence while the trespass act was read.
Reno refused to comment on the case. ]
Others still facing charges for trespassing
are Dean Baker, Rackham Student Gover-
nment president, Hugh McGuinness, a
biology teaching assisant, LSA seniors
Carey Garlick and Tamara Smith, LSA
juniors John Hartigan and Claudia Green,
graduate student Steve Latta and LSA senior

Chris Faber, who will be tried in absentia
because he is in Nicaragua.
THE defendant's attorneys Reno and
Nancy Francis tried to tie the argument that
the protesters as students had a right to be
in the Student Activities Building where the
demonstration took place, but Judge
Alexander did not allow the argument.
He said the issue was not whether the
demonstrators have a right to be in the
building, but whether they had the right to
stay there, after the states trespass act was
ready by Deborah Orr May, director of the

Office of Career Planning and Placement.
The trespass notice stated that protesters
had to leave the building or they would be
arrested. It also included a warning that
future entry into any University-owned or
leased building will subject them to arrest.
DEFENSE attorneys questioned May's
authority to read the act because she is not
the owner, occupant or agent of the building
as qualified by the law.
But Alexander said she had proper
authority to do so under past directives by
former University President Roben Flem-

Prosecuting attorney Bob Levine; said in
his opening statement that the defendants
are guilty as charged," despite the reasons
they were (in the SAB)." Levine declined to
comment on the case.
The first four of the 26 demonstrators
were acquitted January 23. They were
charged with disorderly conduct.
The last trial in connection with the two-
day protest will be this Thursday. Ten
demonstrators are charged wit hindering
and opposing arrest, a city charge.

Homeless combat despairs with hopes at Ann Arbor shelter

here. And that's my right," he says.
"They don't want yo to get out of
this place," he says, jabbing a thum-
btack into the table in front of him.
Chris, who has remained silent until
now, enters the conversation. "You
can see the regulars here. Most people
stay here. Some people come and go,"
Chris says.
"YOU CAN gripe about it (staying
at the shelter). But the real reason is
you're not motivating yourself," he
"If they wanted to help you, they
wouldn't make it easy for you (by
providing a day shelter). They make
it easy for you to be a bum," he says.
Pete has a full time job at the Cam-
pus Inn. But he says the high cost of
living keeps him homeless. "The
clothes I buy, I like. I have to eat, I
have to buy clothes. And by the time I
do that my check is gone," he says.
"WE DON'T have any pride, that's
what they try to tell us," he says. He
pulls clothes out from his bag. "This
Guess Jacket cost $120. The pants cost
$30. The coat costs $30. And the 501's
cost another $30," he says.
G INNIE Pyookowski, the program
coordinator, argues with Pete
about the probable success of the jobs
program. She says the job club will
teach the people how to interview,
teach them about their skills and in-
terests, and teach them how to write a
resume.Pete says job skills aren't the
problem, though. "You write these
people off as stupid. All these people
need is pressure for them to go out,"
says Pete.
"You'll have one or two people in your
jobs program," he says.
Pypkowski thinks there will be a lot
more in the program. "I know it
works," she says. "Especially if
people seeJoe 'Shmoe down the street
making more than minimum wage.
They'll say, 'Hey, I want that job.' "
SOME don't want to participate in
the program, she admits. "If people
want to sit around downstairs, an ad-
vocate (social worker) will come up to
them and establish a rapport with
them," she says.
"We won't force anyone," she says.
"Because if you tell someone they're

and comes by the shelter to help
Brooks says he and the others try to
provide a model for some of the men-
tally ill people at the shelter. "They
see us and they try to follow us. Ginnie
tries to help. This is a good place for
the mentally ill to come and get out of
the cold," he says.
The shelter "is like a therapy," he
says. "Outside of an institution, this is
the best therapy," he says.
"THIS IS a place where they feel
wanted. Not like an outcast of
society," says Patrick Patillo, who
had previously identified himself as
Michael Jackson. "We are poor,; but
we can still love," says Patillo, a
Detroit native.
"You can't rush nothing. You got to
take it one day at a time," says
Brooks. "A lot of people come out of
here getting jobs. That's very
positive," he says.
"We aren't street people," says
Patillo. "You see him," he says,
referring to the student at Washtenaw
Community College. "He's a student.
You could pass by him at school and
not know the difference."
SAYS William: "I got a three-piece
suit I could put on and you wouldn't
know me from anybody else walking
down the street."
"We are just stuck. I'm here and
I'm making the best of it," says
Patrillo. "I quit drinking."
"I haven't done nothing in 7 mon-
ths," says William.
The visitor asks Patrillo why he
was unwilling to talk earlier. "I can't
explain my suffering to you in five
minutes. Because you won't under-

stand," he says.
"SUFFERING ain't negative,
homeboy," he says. "It brings about
moral fiber. We're moral. We live
together," he says.
"We're all in this together -
Chicago, New York, South Africa,"

says Eric, gesturing around the room.
Just then the Temptations' song
"My Girl" comes over the radio. "I
got sunshine on a cloudy day," the
song begins.
Someone shouts out, "Write that
down, man, we got sunshine."
"We got sunshine," says another.

going (to have to) do it, they're not
going to do it," she says.
"It's going to take time to motivate.
They've been on the system for a
couple years. What would motivate
people to get off it?" she says.
"THE SYSTEM perpetuates not
having a job," Pypkowski says. "If
people take a job at $3.50 an hour, they
.lose all their benefits, they get no
foodstamps and no help with
housing," she says.
Jill, (not her real name), a woman
sitting in the office, agrees. The pay
for a minimum wage job amounts to
less than the government benefits,
says Jill.
Pypkowski estimates the jobs
program will initially place about 50
to 60 percent of the people at the
shelter. "It will go up from there,"
she says.
"PEOPLE are showing a
willingness to work."
Her sentiment is echoed down-
stairs where some of the people are
playing cards and talking.
"I came to the shelter two years
ago," says a man in his 20s. "I've
been working off and on. And I had to
make up my mind whether I wanted
to live in the fast lane or get a place to

live in," he said.
"I JUST recently turned my life
around. I am a student at Washtenaw
Community College. And I was
working at Olga's," he said.
"The day shelter is cool. It beats
running around the streets. I come
here after school and do homework. I
will move into an apartment in Mar-
ch. I don't consider myself a street
person. I've got too many things going
for me," he says.
"I've beaten the odds. Just because
you come from the street doesn't mean
you're beaten," he says.
"THERE are more positives than
negatives," says Eric Brooks, a
