Collins examination

U S. gdr


Ypsilanti District Judge Ed-
ward Deake postponed until
Aug. 14 the preliminary exam-
ination of John Collins, ac-
cused murderer of Eastern
Michigan University coed
Karen ,Beineman, when the
suspect told district court he
lacked funds and asked for a
court-appointed lawyer.
Collins was to have faced a pre-
liminary examination yesterday.
However, after Deake read the
murder charge against the de-:
fendant and asked if the prosecu-
tion and defense were ready to
proceed, Collins' lawyer, John M
Toomey,. asked permission to ad--{
dress the court.
Toomey said Loretta Collins, thef

WASHINGTON (MP - The government yesterday aban-
doned its case against Dr. Benjamin Spock. It yielded without
appeal to a circuit court's reversal of the famed pediatrician's
conviction on a charge of conspiring to persuade young men
to avoid the draft.
At the same time, the Justice Department asked - and
was later granted - more time to study whether to seek a
Supreme Court review in the, cases of two Spock codefendants.
The decision not to puruse the Spock case was disclosed
after Solicitor General Erwin N. Griswold filed a petition ask-
ing another month to review the reversal granted July 11 by
the U.S. 1st Circuit Court in Boston.
Griswold's motion pointedly sought an extension only for
the cases of the Rev. William- - _-------

But Ferber, in a telephone inter-

WASHINGTON (41) -President
Nixon will announce a new $4 bil-

an income floor for needy Amer-

Other provisions in the proposed
program, according to the Post,

-Every head of a household re-
ceiving the federal payments
would be considered an applicant

would lose hiĀ§ benefits by reject-
ing such offers unless he were
physically or mentally unfit.
-Mothers who head households
would not be required to accept
training or employment if they
have to care for preschool chil-
dren, but a major new system of
day care centers would be provided
to encourage them to do so.
