Marcuse meets with
city atty. on case

The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, March 30, 1988- Page,3
MSA re-elects
Beleher to chair

By MARINA SWAIN
At an informal meeting with
University graduate student Harold
Marcuse yesterday, Assistant City
Attorney Ron Plunkett offered to
dismiss the city's case against Mar-
cuse if he performed community
service.
Marcuse, who was arrested after
protesting CIA recruitment last
November, rejected Plunkett's offer
during the meeting, which was ar-
ranged to discuss his dissatifaction
with the progress of his upcoming
trial.
Charged with assault on Ann Ar-
bor Detective Douglas Barbour and
University Assistant Director of
Public Safety Robert Patrick, Mar-
cuse waived his right to have an at-
torney present at the meeting.
PLUNKETT told Marcuse he
would "be willing to dismiss the
case (against Marcuse) if he is will-
ing to do two shifts at a shelter as
community service."
After Marcuse refused, Plunkett
paused and offered another proposal:
"Harold does one shift and I'll do the
other. I'd be willing to do the other."
Plunkett said Marcuse did not
have to decide immediately, but
Marcuse declined that offer also.

The second half of the meeting
dealt with an incident during the
protest in which Patrick kicked
Marcuse. Patrick admits to this
charge but maintains it was in self
defense. Marcuse said he may file a
civil suit against Patrick depending
on the outcome of his April 14 trial.
MAR CUSE and others at the
meeting questioned why no action
was taken on this case. "I see the is-
sues as the same. Patrick's the one
who broke the law. He should serve
the shift with me," Marcuse said.
Both sides discussed the specifics
of the case in detail. Marcuse recalled
his actions and physical placement
in the hallways of the Student
Activities Building throughout the
protest. He and about six witnesses
restated their testimony to help form
what they called an accurate picture
for Plunkett to work with.
Plunkett said he will continue to
evaluate the case and will call some
witnesses that might have a more
complete view of the incident, but
he did not agree to work for Patrick's
arrest.
The meeting ended with Plunkett
saying Marcuse gave him "more to
work with in determining whether to
proceed (with that case)."

The Michigan Student Assembly,
in their first meeting with the new
representatives, last night re-elected
Rackham graduate student Bruce
Belcher to the assembly's General
Student Council seat, although the
longstanding MSA member faced
unexpected opposition.
Incoming MSA President
Michael Phillips nominated Belcher
to the position - which entails as-
sisting the president with
parliamentary disputes during meet-
ings - because he said he has
worked well with him in the past.
But engineering school represen-
tative Dan Tobocman, a junior, crit-
icized the nomination, saying
Belcher's political views conflict
with the position's neutrality in
mediating assembly arguments.
"HE HOLDS strong political
views and voices them," Tobocman
said.
Rackham school Rep. Corey
Dolgan disagreed: "In all my deal-
ings with (Belcher), he has always
ruled fairly."
Belcher, who has served on the
assembly for four years, was voted
in 15-8 with five abstentions after a
15-minute long debate.
Before the new representatives
assumed their positions halfway

through the meeting, the old assem-
bly unanimously passed a resolution
demanding that Dooley's fire one of
their bouncers for "his physically
and verbally assaultive behavior" of
a patron.
ON MARCH 19, two LSA
students and a University of Detroit
law student were kicked out of Doo-
ley's, a bar on Maynard Street, be-
cause other patrons said the group
was smoking marijuana, according
to the Ann Arbor police report.
The students said they were
smoking cigarettes, and that they
decided to leave the bar on their own
volition when the bouncer used un-
necessary force to throw them out.
The resolution condemns the
bouncer for allegedly slapping one of
the students, dragging her out of the
bar, down a flight of stairs, and
throwing her in an alley.
Dooley's manager Omid Osan-
loon, who was not involved in the
incident, has said the bouncer acted
in poor judgement but within ac-
ceptable guidelines of his job.
UNIVERSITY alumnus Todd
Shanker, a friend of the patrons who
was present during the incident,
spoke to the assembly last night and
disagreed with Osanloon's account.
The resolution also asks all Uni-
versity students to boycott patroniz-
ing Dooley's.

rock station.
"It's criminal that America hears
such a narrow spectrum of music -
very damaging," he said. "I think a
lot of society's problems are directly
1 related to boredom, I think chronic
boredom causes violent crime, I
think it ultimately causes war, and
think it definitely makes people
neurotic. It's very dangerous."
Arwulf distinctly dislikes the
entertainment industry as a whole.
"Racism and unbridled sleaziness has
made the entertainment industry
what it is today; I still think it is a
very sleazy thing," he said.
His philosophy about how to
stop racism is to attack it head on.
After his friend Chris Daley was be-
ing kicked off the air in December
for playing a song that several
groups said was racist, he changed
the focus of his Thursday night
show to address racism. Though he
said Daley made errors in judgement,
arwulf feels that he should be rein-
stated.
- "(DALEY) was not thrown off
the air for playing 'Run, nigger,
run', he was thrown off the air in a
panic because the University is
scared shitless of bad publicity, and
they had had so much lately. (Daley)
did not explain the song (before he
played it), and then he did not handle
the call (complaining about the
song) very well," arwulf said.
Arwulf's new show is called
"Face the Music," and he describes it
as "an on-the-air seminar on the
creepy, disgusting, slimy side of the
American entertainment industry."

He feels that racism is rooted in
all facets of American culture and
music is no exception. "There is so
much offensive music," he contin-
ued, "I get the worst stuff I can find
and play it over the air and say,
'How do you like that, that's your
culture."'
He said that the response to "Face
the Music" has generally been good,
except for one DJ on WCBN who
thought he was being flippant. "And
I am," he admitted, "I'm a nasty lit-
tle man."
BORN in Palo Alto, California
in 1958, arwulf first came to Ann
Arbor 20 years ago. "When I first
stepped onto the Diag in 1968, it
was literally lined with people. I re-
ally miss that."
After spending a year at Neardy
High School, arwulf decided he
wanted a smaller, more intimate en-
vironment. He finished his school-
ing at Earthworks High, a much
smaller school which used to be lo-
cated on N. Maple Road.
Arwulf enjoyed Earthworks,
where the atmosphere was more re-
laxed and the students had the chance
to teach classes themselves. "It was
an amazing school," he said, "we had
classes like 'Imagination
Marathon."'
He decided against attending col-
lege because he didn't have much
money and was involved in so many
other activities. His involvement
with WCBN began when a friend,
who also collected old records, began
to let him sit in on his show,"The
Cornbelt Symphony." After that,
arwulf started to hang around WCBN
more often, although it was a few
years before he got his own show.
IF HE had a title, arwulf said he
would be a "Dr. of word-jazz-phi-

lanthropy... I do like humans. I get
impatient with them, but I like
them," he said. "What I'd really like
is if people would listen around a
little bit. Each and every person
should try and widen their listening
spectrum by 300 percent."
Tom Simonian, a ten-year vet-
eran of WCBN and sometime stu-
dent, said, "I think arwulf is an in-
credible individual with tremendous
drive and awe-inspiring knowledge
about music and is a warm person
too. WCBN wouldn't be WCBN
without him."
"You are very fortunate to be
alive, and you're very fortunate to be
in America, because America has
created Black music, and with cre-
ative Black music everybody's life
can be a lot more enjoyable and ful-
filling," said arwulf, who shares his
philosophy on life nearly as often as

his unfathomable knowledge of jazz
music.
"That is the most important thing
I can think of to say to anybody. Get
curious... if you start finding that
you're bored with your life, I think
it's time for jazz therapy."
