Amendments to decrease
possession penalties ail
WASHINGTON (R1-The Senate yesterday overwhelmingly
approved a comprehensive drug control bill after defeating
attempts to change its dominant law-enforcement character.
Final passage came on an 82-0 roll call vote moments
after the Senate rejected a bid to reduce federal penalties for
persons convicted on a second or subsequent charge of pos-
sessing marijuana.
Earlier attempts to place more stress on the scientific
and medical aspects of drug addiction were beaten back by
supporters of the police-oriented bill.
The Senate defeated, on a 58-24 roll call vote, an amend-
ment which would have cut in half the severity cf prison sen-

vote, a bid to allow the secretary
of health, education and welfare,
not the attorney general, to have

bers of a new marijuana research
And the Senate also turned
back, 44-39, an attempt to give
HEW scientists a stronger voice
in determining which drugs should
be classified as dangerous under
schedules which outline control
procedures and penalties for use
and distribution.
The amendments were framed
by Sen. Harold E. Hughes (D-
Iowa), who in two days of speeches
has insisted that HEW should be
given the major responsibility and
authority for conducting drug-re-
lated research and weighing the
scientific and medical problems of
drug abuse.
Senators Thomas J. Dodd (D-
Conn) and Roman Hruska (R-
Neb), both members of the Judi-
ciary Committee which wrote the
100-page .control .bill, contended
that the bill gives both HEW and
the Justice Department a voice in
drug abuse control.
Dodd contended that both law
enforcement and medical science
are adequately balanced by the
bill and that placing all authority
in one or the other would 'pre-
clude objectivity and result in one-
sided findings."
The administration-backed bill
already contains penalties for cer-
tain drug abuses less severe than
existing law.
For the first time it would allow
a judge the option of placing first
and second offenders on proba-
tion. Some Senate observers say
this marks a realization that
drugs are infiltrating middle class
neighborhoods and suburbs where
they are used by normally law
abiding persons.
But it sharply differentiates be-
tween these relatively casual users'
and the criminals who profit from
the drug traffic. For these of-
fenders prison sentences would be
long, fines high, and probation'
"Generally it is a mild drug,"
Hughes said. "To equate its risk to
either the individual or society to
hard drugs has no basis at all."
Dodd said the potency of the
substance varies widely.

Approximately 200 students have
occupied the administration build-
ing at the University of Detroit
since 11 a.m. Tuesday, to protest"
what they call the university's
violation of "the student's right
to peaceful protest."
No action has yet been taken to
remove the students. But at a
press conference yesterday, uni-
versity President Father Malcolm
Carron said, "This type of peace-
ful protest is no longer accept-
The statement followed a ear-
lier one by Carron offering to ne-
gotiate if the protesters would
demonstrate only outside campus
buildings as a sign of gQod faith.
It is expected that police will
be called in early today to remove
the 200, after the campus closes
down for the night.
Yesterday's sit-in was staged to
protest an incident that occurred
last Thursday. On that day, 17
students sat-in at 11 a.m. in the
administration building to protest
the presence of a Navy recruiter
on campus.
At noon, a college official closed
the building and threatened to
have the students arrested on
trespassing charges.
When the students did not
leave, the police were called in
and arrested them.
The main contention of the stu-
dents who have rallied to support
the 17 is over the legality of Car-
ron's actions.
According to Bill Pace, steering
committee member of a concerned
students organization, there is a
section in the university's bylaws
which states that in matters of
civil disturbance, the administra-
tion must consult with their stu-
dent government and the advisory
board of deans before taking any
The students believe Carron
violated their rights in having the
students arrested, Pace said.
Carron last night was unavail-
able for comment.
The concerned students have
presented the administration with
a list of seven demands including
one that all criminal charges be
withdrawn against the students
arrested last Thursday.

Prof. Richard Balzhiser, Ann
Arbor Mayor Robert Harris' Re-
publican opponent in last year's
city election, last night took a
"critical look" at Harris' ad-
Speaking to College Republi-
cans he began with several
"commendations" for the Dem-
ocratic administration and then
moved on to the "things I don't
agree with."
He reminded the--25 people
present that the Democrats
now control the council, hold-
ing eight of the 11 votes. "It's
been a frustrating year to the
three Republicans on council."

However, he claimed, people
from outside, now involved in
Model Cities, have not listened
to the ward's representative.
"The power center has shifted,"
he said. "It's not as representa-
tive as perhaps it was back in
the mid '60's."
"In my opinion, morale in
City Hall has never been low-
er," added Balzhiser. He cited
several departmental resigna-
tions as evidence of this.
He went on to say that "fi-
nancial matters in the city are
bleak." He accused the adminis-
tration of "moving and shifting
funds too early, expecting it was

said, "especially college cities."
Besides commenting on what
has happened during the Harris
administration, Balzhiser listed
a "good many things that have.
been shoved aside."
He said he does not think the
planning department is plan-

for a city that is growing "at a
fantastic rate." The administra-
