March 11 Jury trials were scheduled yesterday by Ann Arbor District Judge S. J. Elden in several eviction suits initiated by landlords against University students conducting a rent-withholding strike. The strike is an effort to gain collective bargaining status fór a recently formed Tenants Union. A spokesman for the Tenants Union, not among the U-M dents involved in the eviction cases, said prior to yesterday's arraignments that jury trials would be demanded because the group feels it can demónstrate building code violations e x i s t in the apartments involved. The Tenants Union attorney is Ronald D. Glotta of Detroit. Tenants Union members involved in the eviction casesi are: Donna Bunger of 418 Second St., a Summit Associates unit; Thomas Karow and Noami Karow of 549 Packard, an Arbor Management unit; Virginia Lewis of 549 Packard, Fred and Nancy Rosen of 1120 S. Forest, also an Arbor Management unit; Elizabeth Hertz, Eileen Liska, Barbara F. Boan, Abigail Thomas and Ann D. Williamson, all of 1520 Hill St., also an Arbor Management unit; Jamie Herman, Karla Kish, CarolShalita,allof 1009 Church St., a Summit Associates unit; Wayne Robinson, Brian Lang and Bob Agle of 415 E. Hoover, also a Summit Associates unit. At least 600 U-M students are participating in the rent strike and are withholding "over $50,000" for an escrow fund in a Canadian bank, U-M law student David I. Goldstein of the Tenants Union said today.
