FLASH!--It has been reported that the FBI have been intimidating Ann Arbor Rent-a-Car agencies who were to rent cars to MOBE for the Washington Demonstration Jan. 20. Econo-Car, with national offices in Calif. contacted the local dealer and told him that if he rented cars to the Mobe people he would lose his franchise; he said fuck off and Mobe has got the cars. Also it has been reported that the Methodist Church that was to be used as sleeping quarters in Washington was closed, also the Mobe office in Washington. We haven't got all the information on this yet, but it doesn't really matter since most of you won't be getting this until after Jan. 20. Good luck. See you there.
