Miraculous Mets

phI

NEW YORK 641i -- The absolutely amazing New
York Mets completed their journey to the moon
at 3:17 p.m. yesterday by adding their first world
championship to their first pennant with a 5-3
victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the fifth game
of the World Series.
A swirling nass of humanity from the largest.
crowd ever to see a game at Shea Stadium, 57,397,
swarmed over the field after the final out while the
giddy Mets were clubbing Jerry Koosman on
the back.
Cannon crackers burst in the stands and a
phalanx of wide-eyed fans, shouting "We're Num-
bar One" milled in front of the Met dugout. An
orange smoke flare was carried across second
base and some kids propped up a sign that asked
"What Next?"
There were igerocs galore for the Mets, once
the ragamuffin clowns of the National League.
Pitcher. Koosman went all the way to win his
second series game with a five-hitter. Donn Clen-
denon, proclaimed the series hero and winner of a

sports car, hit a two-run homer. Al Weis, a .215
hitter, slammed his first home run ever at Shea.
And in the eighth inning it was Ron Swoboda's
double following a double by Cleon Jones that did
the Orioles in. A second run in the eighth on a
combination of errors by first baseman Boog Powell
and relief pitcher Eddie Watt really didn't matter.
Desperate Baltimore had opened up a 3-0 lead in
the third inning on a two-run homer by D a v e
See related story, Page 9
McNally, Koosman's lefty pitching foe, and ano-
ther home run by Frank Robinson.
Suddenly, the Mets broke through in the sixth
after a shoestring pitch nicked Jones on the foot.
At first, the plate umpire, Lou DiMuro, refused to
let Jones take first.
Out of the dugout came Gil Hodges, the Mets'
manager, walking slowly on tippy toe, calling for
the ball. He pointed to the shoeshine stain and
DiMuro changed his mind, waving Jones to first

7'ck Birds
base. Naturally, there were loud dissents from
the Baltimore bench.
Watt had just taken over for McNally, who was
lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth, when the
Mets struck the blows that ended the long years
of frustration.
Jones smashed a long double that bounced off
the wall in left center at the 396-foot mark.
Swoboda, the hero of Wednesday's fourth game
with a dramatic catch, proceeded to double down
the left field line.
After Jones took first, Clendenon ripped a 2-2
pitch into the mezzanine in left field for a two-
run homer that closed the gap to 3-2.
The Mets were just not to be denied. This time
it was one of the little men, Al Weis, an American
League discard, who led off the seventh inning
with a home run over the left field fence around the
371-foot mark.
Jerzy Grote then smashed a liner off Boog Pow-
ell's glove. The Oriole first sacked tried to throw
to Watt but the ball was dropped. Swoboda streak-
ed home to put icing on the cake and both Powell
;and Watt were changed with errors.

UNANIMOUS VOTE:

House

panel

backs lottery
WASHINGTON 11Th - President Nixon's lottery plan to
limit the draft to 19-year-olds was approved yesterday by the
House Armed Services Committee'and sent toward the House
floor for action late next week.
The speedy action on a 31-0 vote indicated the chances
or House approval are good and that the Senate might take
ip the bill before the end of the year.
Senate Armed Services Chairman John C. Stennis (D-
Miss) has said his committee may take up the President's
)roposal this year if it passes the House.
The House committee refused even to consider eliminat-
ng draft deferments for college students.
Such a proposal by Rep. Richard H. Ichord (D-Mo) was
^uled out of order on a 21-10 roll call. Ichord said "continuing

Teaching

plan union,
By JIM BEATTIE
Political science department or-
ganizers of an LSA teaching fel-
lows' union yesterday advanced
plans for securing legal assist-
ance for their effort and sched-
uled a weekend meeting for teach-
ing fellows from all LSA de-
partments.
The legal advice will be' em-
loyed to expedite the distribu-
ion of unionizing petitions, while
he meeting will seek to broaden
he base of the organizational ef-
orts, which have officially begun
nly in the political science de-
artment, says Bruce Greenberg,
teaching fellow in the Resi-
ential College.
The decisions to proceed w i t h
lans were facilitated by the gen-
al acceptance of the unioniza-
on idea at yesterday's meeting,
,cording to organizers, who ex-
'essed optimism concerning the
ture of their effort.
"People were generally positive-
inclined toward the idea at yes-
'ay's meeting," said 0Gr e e n-
rg, "and the procedure f o r
rming the union is remarkably
sy if people just have the pro-
T philosophical stance."

ments in time of a shooting
war one of our biggest mis-
takes."
The draft lottery approval was
unanimously recommended by a
special subcommittee that was
highly critical of the plan during
four days of hearings this month.
The subcommittee headed by
Rep. F. Edward Hebert (D-Lal
said in its report it is not per-
suaded that Nixon's plan "would
provide any greater equity in the
selection process than is provided
by the present oldest-first system.
"However, in view of the
strong recommendation of the
President in this regard, urging
the Congress to permit him to
modify the existing system of se-
lection, the subcommittee believes
that this request of the com-
mander-in-chief of our armed
forces should be honored."
Hebert indicated strong oppo-
sition to permitting amendments
on the House floor which he said
could open up a "Pandora's Box"
for revising the entire draft sys-
ten rather than approving the,
lottery only.
But committee critics said they
will carry a fight to open the bill
up to floor revision to the Rules
Committee and the floor itself if
necessary. ,
"This bill deals with how people
get pulled out of the hat for the
draft," said Rep. Otis G. Pike (D-
NY. "But it doesn't deal in any
manner with whogets put, in the
hat in the first place,"
Nixon's lottery plan is aimed at
giving 18-year-olds advance no-
tice of their prospects for being
drafted in their 19th year.

Regents
on boolj
bSU
By RICK PERLOFF
A sharply-divided Board of
Regents is expected to vote
today on the establishment of
a student - faculty controlled
bookstore.
Student Government Council
has called for a 2 p.m. Diag rally
and march on the meeting in the
Administration Bldg. to press for
passage of a proposal calling for
student control of the store.
SGC Executive Vice President
Marc Van Der Hout said disrup-
tion of the meeting was "possible"
if the Regents made an unsatis-
factory decision.
Van Der Hout added that he
felt the attendance at the meet-
ing should be peaceful prior to
the vote.
However, Regent Robert Brown
(R-Kalamazoo) is reported as
saying yesterday that "if they (the
students) are there to come and
disrupt our meeting, we are going
to table everything."
President Robben Fleming also
said that it would be an error for
students to attend the meeting in
mass. He added that any sort of
disruption would probably lead f~o
adjournment.
Fleming said he was not sure
exactly when the vote would be
taken, though he had earlier said
it would occur in the afternoon.
With the Regents divided on
the issue, the decision appears to
hinge on the vote of Lawrence
Lindemer (R-Stockbridge) who-,----
cast the crucial vote in September
for an administration-run book-
store.
The Regents discussed a new

SUPPORT MOTHERS:

Professionals to

march

for

ADC clothing funds

By ROBERT KRAFTOWITZ
A renewed drive for increased
payments to welfare nothers will
begin next Tuesday when a group
of professional members of the
comupunity plans to march peace-
fully outside the Washtenaw
County Bldg.
The proposed march coincides
with a public hearing called by
the County Board of Supervisors
to discuss the proposed 1970 coun-
ty budget.
The protesters, who will include'
social workers, doctors, nurses,
lawyers, educators, journalists, and
housewives, will demand that the
Supervisors provide funds to meet

the requests of the five-member
Welfare Rights Committee (WRC).j
WRC represents some 200 wel-
fare mothers in Washtenaw Coun-
ty.
The committee has been de-
manding:
--an immediate allocation of
$46 for the purchase of school!
clothing for the children of wel-
fare mothers:
-an additional allocation of
$46.50 in January to meet the cost
of school clothing next term;
---a provision in the 1970 budget
which would increase the current
monthly payments to welfare
mothers by 25 per cent, to reflect

a similar increase in the cost of
living since 1960. Current pay-a
ments are based on 1960 prices.
Planners of Tuesday's demon-
stration stress that the partici-
pants will be composed solely of
professionals in the community
and a few selected student groups,
in contrast to the welfare moth-
ers' unsuccessful march Oct. 2.

PLANS FOR WASHINGTON

N Mb
By DEBBIE THIAL
Local members of the New Mobilization
Committee to End the War in Vietnam
(New Mobe) are unanimous in their opin-
ion that Wednesday's anti-war moratorium
was a great success.
"It was the biggest anti-war demon-
stration in the history of Michigan," mem-
bers of the local New Mobe steering com-
mittee say. "The students demonstrated
their unity of feeling, their desire for the
war to be brought to an immediate halt."
Although New Mobe leaders had orig-
inally predicted that 50,000 people would

American people the extent of opposition
to the war.
"Nixon will not change his stance. He is
a captive of the most reactionary elements
of the establishment," says Dave Gordon,.
a steering committee member.
"But the moratorium and the activities
which will follow will serve the show
that the American people are united in
wanting an immediate end to the war,"
Gordon adds. "They showed that they
want the troops home now."
Gordon says he does not expect that the
Moratorium will change many minds in

tion in conjunction with the moratorium.
"The affect of the moratorium on the
pr,'sident will only come when the pres-
sure has grown so strong that he can't
ignore it. And Oct. 15 is only the begin-
ning," Gordon said.
New Mobe is not planning a strike, or
any other local anti-war activity in No-
vember, when the focal point of the peace
movement is expected to shift to Washing-
tin.
New Mobe officials see the Washington
protests - which will take place Nov. 13.
14, and 15, as the culmination of all the
efforts for peace thus far.

ical matters."
Another organizer, Social Work
Prof. Rober't Segal explains, "We
hope to show the Supervisors that
the community backs the reason-
able requests of the welfare'
mothers."
WRC had hoped that the Oct. 2
demonstration would prompt the
Supervisors to meet their imme-
diate request for $46 by using part
of the county's' $124.000 budget
surplus.
However, after a day of protest,
the Supervisors met with the
mothers and informed them that
the $124,000 was earmarked for
other county expenses.
According to Board Chairman
Bent Nielsen (R-Ann Arbor), most
of the $124.000 was recently di-
vided among the various depart-
ments of the county government
to meet expenses for the remain-
der of 1969. The balance of the
surplus, says Nielsen, has been

11 ousing office policies
By CAROL HILDEBRAND
Hopefully, University students will never again have to
live in a dormitory cafeteria.
A four-page report to the Board of Governors for Uni-
versity housing from Inter-House Assembly (IHA) empha-
sized that "the University's primary concern should be the
well-being of, and service to, the students."
The four-page report condemned the present policies and
procedures that led to the mass dormitory space shortage
this fall.
The report also attacked the over-use of converted rooms.
Jack Myers, IHA president, said "converted rooms should be
arranged beforehand only to cover the expected rate of no-
