The Texas Wedge
Doily's Complaints
EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Bogema is the Book Review Editor of the Ann
Arbor Argus. The following are his observations concerning the Daily.
No one at the 'U' especially likes The Daily. Oh yes, one
sees copies everywhere-stuffed into notebooks to be read at
leisure during boring lectures, stacks occupying local newsstand
corners, (usually going unpurchased-who'd pay a dime for
twelve pages at the most?), rubber-band clad issues filling quad-
die mailboxes.
Black students, after the Senior Editors of The Daily refused
to recommend one of their chosen few for an SGC seat, held
two Diag rallies on consecutive days to condemn The Daily's in-
fluence (which is substantial) upon campus politics. Ken Kelley,
a former Daily dssistant-night-editor, found The Daily climate
so uptight and stultifying he resigned his position, protesting the
lack of coverage to drug busts, induction resistance and new
media innovation.
After an apprenticeship with the East Village Other, he
founded a rival publication, the Ann Arbor Argus (published
bi-weekly), the local representative of the underground press
of Avator, Berkeley Barb, and Other fame. All other studept
publications hold their enthusiasm for The Daily well under
control, and the polemics that are bandied forth between the
Gardyle, Ensian, Generation, and The Daily have almost become
a campus ritual.
SDS MEMBERS undoubtedly believe that the political sen-
timents represented on the editorial page are counter-revolu-
tionary; that the orientation of news coverage gives vivid il-
lustration of the existence of our social chains; that the in-
formal alliance between The Daily, Radical Caucus, and the
Rent-Strike is a pre-conceived plot to deny SDS any influence
among the grass-roots.. The avant-garde, on the other hand,
vehemently charges that the limited coverage and bland reviews
illustrates a Daily lack of enthusiasm for cultural renovation.
Responsible faculty, those who would not for their life enter
a debate with students on questions of academic politics (co-
optation in decision-making means instability, turmoil, and loss
of all that we hold so dear), see The Daily as a maze of con-
fusion, immaturity, passion, and, of course, unreason.
Irresponsible faculty, however, subscribe delightfully, un-
doubtedly because they see political proteges and life-style heirs,
who, will eventually become comrades in the great righteous
crusade to make college communities homes of diverse, creative,
that is, truly intellectual activity.
Administrators peer and scowl at the rag over their morn-
ing coffee (or whatever they drink, if they do), hoping that their
latest blunder has gone undetected, or giggle in childish delight
when their latest decree to appease the legislature has been
described as the first step toward the ushering in of political
. repression.
Even the foremost apologists of The Daily-wring their hands
in dismay as the editorial contradictions and typographical errors
manifest themselves in virtually every edition, and wait with
baited breath for the day when a consistent leftish editorial
line is adopted.
ARDENT SPORTS FIENDS chide the publication for
rotten and sketchy coverage of national sports and the increas-
ingly rash predictions and suppressed enthusiasm for the Wol-
verines. Greeks know that The Daily is out to screw them at the
first opportunity as the bastion of privilege, greed, and capitalist
Ann Arbor News reporters speak far more frequently with
their counterparts on the Argus than those hated scum, those
young, impudent, pretentious, upstarts who consistently out-
scoop the elderly fascists.
Doug Harvey, Walter Krasny, and Gene Staudenmaier, the
local gendarme-pig-protectors of the public good (whatever
your preference), feel, no doubt, that they have martyred their
earning power (what the hell else in America can one martyr?)
for a noble life on the crass.
Robben Fleming and Robert Harris, the local sovereigns,
anxiously await the day when The Daily will be on their political
Right. Ann Arbor landlords have taken the Rent Strike to court
for seeking to obtain alleged libelous articles in The Daily.
HARLAN HATCHER seldom complains. He reads the paper
for a grand chuckle. Eugene Power, informed sources have it, is
planning a massive coup to destroy The Daily, in order to regain
his lost regental position. As for The Texas Wedge, it needs
political radicalization, social concern, and immedi'ate movement
to the editorial page. Did you ever see Humphrey Bogart playing
Everybody, however, is clearly expecting too much. Take, for
example, other college newspapers and compare their coverage,
editorial thought, and relationship with administrators, faculty,
and students, and you'll will open your morning copy of The
Daily with enthusiasm of a pot high. Take or subscribe to the
Detroit News or Free Press, and within a week, you'll spearhead
the growth of barricades in Pellston, or lapse into a drugged

state of indifference, reminiscent of the Detroit wage-slave, the
one we all know and love.
Thus, if all you pseudo-intellectual freaks can do is complain
and criticize, go start your own rag. Av6 The Daily!

Cowboys trade Jerry Rhome
By The Associated Press
* UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.-Cassius Clay said again yesterday
he is through with boxing for good and will retire as the world's only
undefeated black heavyweight champion.

Ali since he was converted to the Black Muslim faith.

serve quarterback Jerry Rhome was traded to the Cleveland Browns

behind Don Meredith and Craig Morton with former Navy great Roger
Staubach joining the team this season.
Cowboy president Tex Schramm said, "We think he Rhome will
definitely be a quarterback factor in pro football, and everybody in
the Cowboys wish him the best. Jerry is a class person and a class
football player."

MILWAUKEE RP) - Arthur Al-'
lyn, owner of the Chicago White
Sox, said Thursday the American
and National baseball leagues will
merge in the near future.
Allyn predicted the merger !could
occur in December at the winter
"The merging would result in
three eight-team divisions," Allyn
said. "The new setup would be
called just 'baseball.'"
"There would be West, Central
and Eastern divisions, and would
be created on a geographical bas-
is. A look at the map would pro-
vide the key as to the location of
the respective teams," he told
The"White Sox owner said the
thinking of "independent people"
as w e I1 as those in baseball is
along the lines of a merger.
He explained that the new
structure would be headed by a
president of baseball in the form
of today's commissioner, and "with
the, same powers."
The present commissioner is;

nationally competitive w i t h the
obvious high stakes going to the
He said he can't see how base-
ball "can avoid" a merger. A Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania study of
baseball "has indicated that mer-
ger of the two leagues has come
up strong in the researching," he
"Maybe they, the other owners
will find a better way," Allyn said.
"But my b e s t guess would b
that the two leagues will have toI
merge," he s a i d. "I repeat, it's
logical and sensible."
