Interfaith Council "Bomb Crater"


Interfaith Council "Bomb Crater"
Caption: 
'Bomb Crater' Dedicated: A crater 40 feet in diameter and 6 feet deep was dedicated at noon today by the Most Rev. Walter Schoenerr, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. The Interfaith Council for Peace (ICFP) sponsored the crater dig. It is located at Clonlara School, 1289 Jewett. David Houseman, staff member of the Interfaith Council for Peace, says the crater symbolizes those craters created in Indochina by 500-pound bombs dropped by the U.S. Air Force and Navy. The ICFP plans to fill the crater with dirt and symbolically bury items such as toy guns and consumer products manufactured by industries involved with the war in Indochina.

Sheriff 'Honorary Barber': Sheriff Douglas J. Harvey examines a plaque which designates him an "honorary barber." The plaque, presented yesterday at the County Building, was given by Barbers Union Local 689. Harvey is defendant in a U.S. District Court suit in Detroit in which eight University students allege their constitutional rights were violated by haircuts given them during a brief stay in jail. Harvey is being sued for $200,000. The eight were arrested during a campus demonstration. Harvey promised to display the plaque in his office. Ypsilanti barber William Boatwright, who made the presentation, said the local's 94 barbers in the county "support Sheriff Harvey and his prevention of disease in the county jail."
