Late World News
by The Associated Press
WASHINGTON--The House refused yesterday by a vote of
123 to 2 to go on record as opposed to a land invasion of North
Vietnam by U.S. ground forces.
The standing vote preceded passage by roll-call vote of 385
to 11 of a $12.19-billion emergency appropriation bill to provide
more money for the fighting in Vietnam of the fiscal year ending
June 30. It was the first appropriation bill of 1967 and still must
be acted on by the Senate.
THE STATE SENATE yesterday voted to give immediate ef-
fect to a controversial bill which exempts the state from the
Federal Uniform Time Act, allowing it to stay on Eastern Stand-
ard Time all year. The motion passed on a 28-9 vote with
Republicans and Democrats voting on both sides. Twenty-six votesG
were necessary to give immediate effect.
The measure now goes to Gov. George Romney for signature.
Romney has indicated that he favors keeping the state on
Eastern Standard Time. The federal act requires all states to
observe Daylight Savings Time for six months of the year, be-
ginning April 30, unless they take legislative action by April 1
to exempt themselves.

stroke, but did discount earlier reports that it had been an attack
of diabetes. "At this time, the diabetes is not the critical factor,"
Warren said.

FBA Admits
Some Basis
For Charges
Houses Claim Few
Discounts Received
In Food Purchasing
In response to charges that the
Fraternity Buyers Association is
not being run efficiently and fair-
ly, veteran FBA board member
Graham Conger acknowledges that
"a particular large house can
probably do better (in buying)
than FBA."
The co-operative purchasing unit
which handles $500,000 worth of
business for 55 campus housing
units is now under investigation
by the Interfraternity Council Ex-
ecutive Board.
Officially the FBA says that "In
spite of anything'that may be said
to the contrary, no house operat-
ing independently can match
Several leaders of large frater-
nities claim that they are not sav-
ing money through FBA. Ron
Weiser, alumni advisor to Tau
Delta Phi says he is considering
pulling his fraternity out of the
group unless it becomes more ef-
Weiser says that outside of milk
purchasing, FBA secures little in
the way of discounts. He claims
the fraternities receive "only about
a four per cent discount on bread,
three per cent on eggs,/and no dis-
count on meat or staples."
Trigon President Doug Wasama
complains that "FBA is not being
used to its fullest advantage. Our
steward bought cereal at a retail
store for the same price per box
the FBA wholesale supplier
-charged for case-sized orders."
Jim Smith, plant supervisor of
the Washtenaw Independent Dairy
charges that during contract bid-
ding two years ago, "The FBA told
us the bids were due by midnight
on a particular day. I took our bid
over to the FBA office at 10 p.m.
on that day and arrived just in
time to hear someone in the other
room tell a fraternity steward the
contract had already been
FBA officials deny the 'charges.
Don Schummer, sales manager
of the McDonald Dairy also voices
dissatisfaction with FBA. The pur-
chasing, agency, currently has a
milk contract with Bolgos Farms.
"When you have sealed bid com-
petition you expect to be told the
price on the winning bid," says
Schummer. "I called the FBA of-
fice the day after the bidding (last
summer), -but they refused to tell
me what the lowest bid had been,"

The University Young Democrats
Club voted last night to endorse
Tom Copi, '69, for Student Gov-
