Vaughn was treated for a sprained
hand.
After gaining consensus from the
protesters outside, MSA President
Jennifer Van Valey entered to tell
students, "MSA does not support
this. We want a peaceful protest. We
do not want you to go upstairs."
Students exited the building and
gathered outside, where SRC Chair
Corey Dolgon encouraged students
to unite and said, "We fear the stu-
dents upstairs are being arrested."
At about 3 p.m., Ann Arbor po-
lice - some wearing riot gear -
entered the building but told the 22
students on the second floor that
they were not taking immediate ac-
tion.
Pattrice Maurer of AIDS Coali-
tion to Unleash Power (ACT-UP)
called for a "non-violent protest. Do
not fight the cops."
Van Valey asked students to
gather friends and be prepared to stay
overnight outside the building to
show solidarity with those inside.
After stationing themselves in
the president's office for more than
24 hours, SSC had a glimpse of
hope when Henry Johnson, vice
president for community relations,
met with them around 3:45 p.m.
Johnson was the first administra-
tor to speak with the students since
their initial confrontation with Ex-
ecutive Director of University Rela-
tions Walter Harrison on Wednesday
afternoon.
Protesters said no administrators
or staff entered the second floor of-
fice yesterday, with the exception of
Shirley Clarkson, assistant to the
president, who briefly appeared.
Johnson crouched on the floor
while students and media shutterbugs
huddled around him.
Four representatives spoke for the
group, detailing their demands:
The University must halt its
plan to deputize and arm its own po-
lice force.
The University must establish
a real task force on campus safety
with equal student, faculty, and staff
representation chosen by each con-
stituency's representative body.
The University must immedi-
ately institute a policy-making body
that insures students will play a rep-

resentative and powerful role in the
decisions that affect their lives.
The University must rescind
all policies concerning campus life
enacted since the University
Council's demise and resubmit them
to this newly constructed body for
future approval. The University
Council was a body made up of
students, faculty, and staff, which
formulated campus-life policies. The
Council was disbanded by the
regents last December.
An oversight committee must
be established to supervise the train-
ing and performance of current cam-
pus security officers. This commit-
tee must have the power to investi-
gate complaints, issue sanctions, de-
termine training and hiring proce-
dures, and be comprised of students,
faculty, and staff selected by their
representative governing bodies and
unions, and administrators.
They added a sixth demand: that
all protesters have amnesty for yes-
terday's actions.
Johnson said he was sure Duder-
stadt knew of the demands but said
he would bring the students' con-
cerns to his attention. "Other than
that, no commitment can be made,"
he said.
The students asked Johnson to
send administrators who have
"decision-making authority to talk to
us."
Johnson returned within 30 min-
utes with Mary Ann Swain, interim
vice president for student services.
"Contingent upon your leaving
the building, a selected group of ad-
ministrators and a select, limited
number of students would meet after
the holidays to discuss... decision-
making of the University," Johnson
said.
Swain said, "The kind of situa-
tion you have is not an opportunity,
in my view, for a dialogue."
SSC refused the conditions.
Dawn Paulinski, a spokesperson
for the group and a member of the
Daily Opinion Staff, said only four
students would speak in a public fo-
rum with administrators, but they
wanted the rest of the protesters there
as well as the media.
"We want to enter a binding deci-
sion with the witness of the media,"
Paulinski said. "We're speaking for
other students; we're not comfortable
speaking without them, in private..
And frankly, we don't trust you
without the media."
Johnson said he was sorry SSC
didn't trust the administration with-
out the presence of media.
Swain said the group was
"playing to the media."
Johnson and Swain then left and
went behind closed doors to speak
with Harrison at 4:40 p.m.

Arbor Acting Police Chief William
Hoover also met in the back offices
which were off-limits to he press.
Just after 5 p.m. Heatley entered
the student-occupied office and an
nounced the building was closed and
that anyone not leaving peacefully
within five minutes would be guilty
of misdemeanor under the Michigan
Trespass Statute.
Five students left, and the re-
maining 16 linked arms until police
officers snapped photographs and
questioned each individually. Four-
teen of those "sitting in" had been
there 26 and a half hours at the time
of their arrest.
"We have the rights of sea slugs
with social security numbers," said
Rackham student Jeff Hinte after be
ing arrested.
Harrison said he, Johnson, and
Swain "decided to arrest the students
because we believed things were a
an impasse in negotiations."
Harrison said Duderstadt was kept
informed "in a vague way," and that
the president had given permission
to Harrison, Johnson, and Swain t
use their best judgment.
During a break in the Regents'
meeting around 3:30 p.m., Duder'-
stadt said, "It's not a coincidence that
MSA elections are today. It's politi-
cal opportunism... The students
(protesting) are not representative of
the community. You can't let their
political agenda dictate."
Harrison said vandalism and vio-
lence - the chalk graffiti and the of
ficer's injury - were contributing
factors to the University's decision
to allow the arrests, even though 14,
if not all 16, of those arrested were
not part of those activities.
"The whole situation was out of
control," he said.
As far as meeting protesters' de-
mands, he said, "the University pp-
lice (deputization) is not negotiable.
"The question I'm concerne
with," he continued, "is how to find
better ways to communicate with
students, faculty, and staff."
After being processed at the scene
and escorted out of the building, the
arrested students were released. City
police said warrants will be issued,
charging them with criminal tres-
pass, and the protesters will be noti-
fied of an arraignment date.
Hundreds of students awaited the
protesters' exit from the building.
They blocked entry to the county sh-
eriff's bus because they feared those
arrested would be taken to police
headquarters. Chief Hoover said the
bus was for city officers, not stu-
dents, to be taken to headquarters.
The students then walked to the
News and Information Services
building, and joined with othe.
protestors for a cross-campus march.
During the protest, the possibil-
ity of arrest for trespassing was dis-
cussed. Many of the protesters out
side the NIS Building said the arrests
of those inside and the ensuing me-
dia coverage would help the cause of
SSC, but those inside, faced with
the possibility of fines and a
criminal record, expressed doubt.
Some of the students and the se-
curity officers engaged in a debate on
deputization. The security personnel
said that they often felt powerless to
stop a crime in progress and had lit-
tle recourse if their lives were threat
ened.

the beginning, not the end like the
administration thought it would be,l
said LSA junior Joyce Gresko.
"This is setting the stage so
students can become part of the
process and make a change," said
Mark Brush, LSA senior.
Daily staffer Tami Pollak
contributed to this report.
