* student accused of
embezzling funds
March 13, 1985 - An Ann Arbor
assistant prosecutor decided yesterday
he would not press charges against
LSA sophomore Rick Blalock, former
vice president of the Bursley Board
of Governors. Blalock was accused of
embezzling residence hall funds. The
Bursley Board had previously voted not
to prosecute its former vice president.
Blalock allegedly stole $2,457.42
of the dorm's financial resources for
personal use, including car rental.
The city prosecutor who made the
decision, Marilyn Eisenbrau, said that
she reviewed the minutes from the
Board of Governors meeting in which
they decided not to prosecute Blalock.
But the board's vote was unofficial
and Bursley's building director and John
Heidke, the associate director for hous-

Board's decision. Heidke said a person

On Saturday, a number of groups
- including members of local and

At one point, police had to
restrain several people who tried to
get too close to the protesters as they
shouted at them. The protesters were
eventually escorted to their vehicles
