The Day Tickers Stopped on Wall St.

Voice columnist John Wilcock was arrested with Jan Tice of East 9th Street, an actress, and free-lance fashion photographer Eugenia Louis of East 17th Street on disorderly conduct charges. Sunday on Pearl Street in the Wall Street area, Miss Tice was posing nude for photographs for “Jan’s New York,” a picture book on the city being prepared by Wilcock and Miss Louis.

The group were released without bail until a hearing on November 22 in Criminal Court. Wilcock had been acquitted on another disorderly conduct charge on October 28. The previous arrest occurred when he sought entry without a press pass to the Living Theatre during its closure by the Internal Revenue Service.
