The final results of a State Auditor General's investiga-

original charges of misrepresentation in University's account-

significant changes in the state's relationship with the Uni-

Major highlights of the report include:
-withdrawal of charges made by Auditor General Albert

POSTPONE ACTION
Reveal Harvey reply

By PHILIP BLOCK
A special committee of the
County Board of Supervisors
released yesterday testimony by
Sheriff Douglas Harvey con-
cerning his department's finan-
cial operations.
The testimoney was released
at the board's regular monthly
meeting yesterday, but action
on Harvey's replies to the set of
questions was postponed until
Oct. 22.
Supervisor Neal Mast (R-
Scio), chairman of the special
committee, told the board yes-
terday that his committee has
not had time to completely re-
view Harvey's answers.
"At 11:00 a.m. Monday the
answers were handed to me by
the sheriff," said )Mast- "Since
then the committee met twice
yesterday but we still need to
review the questions at subse-
quent meetings."
The special committee ques-
tioning the sheriff's financial
operations submitted the sec-
ond set of questions after they
decided that Harvey's answers
to a first set were "inconch-

tion-was taken over by Daniel
Stashkiw, "a private promoter,"
in 1967 and 1968 and Stashkiw
"was in no way connected with
the Washtenaw Sheriff's De-
partment."
The committee also request-
ed, that Harvey produce a copy
of an expense account which he
submitted to the County Ac-
counting Dept. covering ex-
pense incurred during an ex-
tradition trip over the 1966 New
Year's holiday when he used
more than $1,000 of county
money.
Harvey claimed the account-
ing report is missing, and "has
not shown up anywhere, includ-
ing in the County Bldg." How-
ever. the sheriff listed the ap-
proximate costs of the trip in
his answer,
In response to the commit-
tee's questions concerning the
operation of the C o u n t y
Jail's commissary-a concession
which supplies candy and to-
bacco to prisoners at a profit-
the gheriff said a "very smnl1

that "any money that may have
come up missing from the prop-
erty box of a prisoner was re-
placed from the concession
funds."
When Harvey took office, ac-
cording to the document, the
concessions w e r e purchased
from the Ann Arbor Tobacco
Co,. a wholesaler, instead of
from the Main Street Grocery
where they were formerly pur-
chased. He also said the profits
were now "used for purchas-
ing equipment for the County
Jail, which is in the jail now,
such as air conditioners."
According' to Harrison, ac-
tions which the board can take
against Harvey are limited. "If
the sheriff responds to the
questions posed by the special
committee no matter how in-
conclusive they are, the board
cannot do anything," he said.
"The board is not a judicial
body, nor are we qualified
to professionally investigate
charges which have been level-
ed at the sheriff. That is a
matter for the Courts and the
State Attorney General's Of-
fice "

By URBAN LEHNER
Editorial Director
Special to the Daily
FLINT - Since the beginning of
the campaign the principal source
of political heat in this heavily
working class city of about 220,000
has been the fire-breathing of
third party candidate George C.
Wallace.
Already two Flint locals of the
normally Democratic United Auto
Workers have endorsed Wallace,
one of them in heavy voting.
This was the fire Richard M.
Nixon attempted to extinguish in
a one-stop appearance here yes-
terday.
Listing grievances with which,
he said, the workingman has a
right to be fed up,kthe Republican
nevertheless argued that to trans-
late dissatisfaction with the John-
son administration into a vote for
Wallace would be in effect an
exercise in futility:
"Do you just want to make a
point or do you want to make a'
change?
"Do you want to get something
off your chest or do you want to
get something done?
"Do you just want to get a mo-
ment's satisfaction, or do you
want to get four years of action?
FEW WORKERS
The problem was that Nixon's
5000-plus audience included few
workingmen. It seemed to be com-
posed primarily of loyal Republi-
cans - who lustily cheered the
introduction of Republican digni-
taries from Gov. George Romney
to the GOP candidate' for Flint
drain commissioner - the elder-
ly, business executives and their
wives, and schoolchildren who
were apparently using the func-
tion as an excuse to cut classes.
In contrast Wallace, speaking
here last week, reportedly d r e w
factory workers off their second-
shift jobs to hear his address.
And Nixon's deviations from his
prepared text reflected awareness
of the un-proletarian character of
the crowd. The 350 word address
given to the press in advance in-
eluded five specific references to
"workers" or "the workingman."
But the candidate never used
either word in his actual delivered
speech. And while the text was '
solely directed to Wallace (whom
Nixonnever mentioned by name),
the speech itself spent the areat-j

audiences here. For Nixon, it was.
the only Michigan stop yesterday
in a four-city transcontinental
tour that ended last night in Los
Angeles.
In the absence of a sizable
Wallace-leaning contingent (al-
though as 7th District Republi-
can Congressman Donald Aiegle
intoned the "who's the one?" cad-
ence with which he . introducedr
Nixon one heckler did answer
t aiipa gu
"Wallace!" the affair was trans-'
formed from a political firefight-
ing performance into a typical
Nixon 'campaign rally. As such,f
it was a nice example of the genre.
The Nixon po ium personality
is woven togethe out of a num-
ber of divergent strands-a pen-
chant for encapsuling complex
ideas in epigrams, persistent at-
tempts to "personalize" his ap-
peal with references to his wife,
and a barely-suppressed egotism.
Some of these motifs were ob-
servable yesterday. Nixon com-
bined epigram and egotism to ex-
plain his stance on Vietnam, fort

example. Bowing to Riegle (who
was voted a 1967 'Congressman of
the Year by the liberal N a t i o it
magazine, largely for his construc-
tive proposals on Vietnam), Nixon
observed:
"He understands, as I think I
understand, the nature of this
war. It's not just for territory, but
for people. That's where we've
failed, by not bringing the South
Vietnamese into it enough."
NOT SUBTLE
Nor is the egotism always so
subtle. Promising to solve the
problems of crime, Nixon averred,
"I know how to do it; I'm an
expert in this area."
The Republican candidate has
embodied his attempts to bring
the campaign down to earth in a
well-rehearsed line he uses when-
ever he shares the, platform with
a prominent Republican. Praising
one GOP wife specifically - yes-
terday it was Nancy Riegel - then
extending the praise to the wives
of other named Republicans, he
ends with a modest quip, "We all
married above ourselves."
Another Nixon ploy is to share
his political strategy with the au-
dience. "Michigan is a critical
swing state," he said. "That's why
I'm here today, and that's why
I'm coming back two more times
before election day."

EVALUATE MERITS
Bus~dconsiders underdgradrl

By BILL LAVELY
The future of the undergrad-
uate program in the School of
Business Administration is in
doubt.
A committee of the business
administration faculty assembly
studying the undergraduate pro-
gram is considering the pos-
sibility of discontinuing t h e
program entirely. A report is ex-
pected sometime this semester.
The five-member committee,
appointed last March and
charged with making a com-
pleted review of the Bachelor of
Business Administration degree

We may decide to increase en-
rollment or retain it at its pre-
sent level.
"The committee was given a
free hand," he adds.
One professor at the business
school, who prefers to remain
anonymous, explained that some
*segments of the business admin-
istration faculty question the
value of the undergraduate pro-
gram.
Their arguments include the
fact that some big business
schools, like Harvard, have no
undergraduate program.
There is a feeling among some

the liberal arts than they are
now getting in the undergrad-.
uate program.
L. Lynnwood Aris, Director of
business school admissions and
a member of the committee, said
that the committee was estab-
lished as part of a periodic re-
view of all programs in t h e
school.
"All of our degree programs'
have had committee review in
the past few years. A committee
studying the Masters degree
program gave its report-last fall,
and substantial changes were
made in the curriculum..

Vice President for Student Af-
fairs Allan F. Smith said that
he had met with the committee
and discussed the discontinua-
tion of the program, but he said
"there was no concensus in the
committee either wpy. I don't
think a decision to end the pro-
gram is by any means certain."
. There are about 270 students
in the undergraduate program,
which consists of upperclassmen
only.
The BBA study committee was
appointed by the curriculum

ministration faculty - assembly.
