racial discrimination is involved,
Lockard isn't so sure.
"IF YOU ASK if it is discrimination,
of course it is," said Lockart. "If you
ask if it is racism, I'd say it smacks of it."
But Richard Brunvand, coordinator
for the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair
association, which organizes and runs
the portion of the Ann Arbor Fair on
South University Street, said that all
works were judged in the same man-
ner, by an impartial jury. He said the
suggestion that the committee had
discriminated against Lockard was
"I'll say this publicly: I am appalled
that people are saying that there was
discrimination," said Brunvand.
"That's an unfair accusation ... There
was no discrimination in Mr.
Lockard's case ... If they're going to
take that stand, we might as well pull
out everyone else who's been juried out
BRUNVAND, however, said he didn't
know why the jury excluded Lockard,
and refused to release any of the jurors
names. "It could be a variety of fac-
tors," he said of the rejection. "It hap-
pens to other artists with a great deal of
ability and stature who just don't make
it when up against the competition."
Brunvand said at least one other ar-
tist who had been with the fair as long
as Lockard had been "juried out" this
But Lockard said the political content
of his paintings may have led to his
rejection. "The direction of the fair
may very well be going against the.
grain that my work represents,"
Lockard said. "There very well may
have been a change in the make-up of
their committees. I don't think this
would have happened a few years ago.
But who knows?
"I THINK that Ann Arbor is reflec-
tive of the country. The whole concept
of due process has been blasted to
YOU'RE ONE. YOU'RE IN
Lockard said it appeared that the fair
was removing "social consciousness"
from the exhibitions. "You can't
eliminate social consciousness from
art," he said. "That's not real."
Lockard, who does portraits for
customers at the fair, said the commit-
tee which rejected him didn't even
follow its own rules. Although the jury
in the selection process was to have
been composed of his peers, Lockard
said there were no portrait artists on
"So who are my peers? And how was
it that I was neve asked to join them?"
Lockard said, adding that he had never
been asked to participate ina jury.

Seekman. The fraternity's alumni
board voted in September to let the
chapter remain coed.
But as pressure from the national
organization and a decrease in mem-,
hers continued to trouble the fraternity,
board members changed their minds
about allowing females to join, Seek-
SOME fraternity members hope the
new policy will relieve tension that built
up in the house during the last few
years. "It was a house divided against
itself," Seekman said.
Other Theta Xi chapters offered little
support to the coed fraternity, Seekman
added, saying the Illinois house called
University chapter members "fags"
and a visiting member from Purdue
expressed .fears that fraterity
"secrets" would be leaked to women.
Seekman also said he thinks Theta Xi

better financially, as an all-male

next day: "I'm a steppin' razor; watch
my sides; I'm dangerous."
The high point of the night came in
the second set, when they were joined
by members of Lansing's reggae band
Samaritans. The Samaritan's drum-
mer, in particular, was impressive. He
handled vocals in two of the three big-
band numbers, showing on "Money in
My Pocket" the kind of oomph that Lutz
lacked. He also did a fine job relieving
O'Looney on drums. I for one would like
to get a better look at the Samaritans
As for Steppin' Razor, they weren't
quite dangerous enough Monday night,
but they may yet live up to their claim.
