FBI TAKES NO ACTION AGAINST 59 OTHERS:

rro SE:& NEWS HAPPEN4 CA1L .)AJ1Y
Santa 's little helpers
As the yuletide season heightens and the spirit of giving permeates
the air, residents of South Quad are joining in the festivities with an
inter-house exchange of Secret Santas. Participants anonymously
receive the name of a member of the opposite sex - give a gift daily for
a week to an arbitrarily picked person - until the' final party when
everyone meets.his or her Santa. Sneaking around corners as in a
game of "Killer," Santas hire elves to deliver packages or singing
telegrams. Some Kris Kringles are delivering gifts en masse, and in
masks to hide identities. Presents have included flowers, poems,
cookies, Playboy puzzles, pennants, plants, joints, soda crackers, and
prophylactics. Slime containing synthetic worms was another notable
gift.
Ypsi's $5 booze law
Ann Arbor city council members weren't alone in passing a $5
drinking ordinance Monday. The Ypsilanti city council also decided to
take similar steps to undercut Michigan's new drinking law. The law
would forbid the possession or delivery of alcoholic beverages by
persons aged 18, 19, or 20. The new city ordinances provide for a $5
penalty for the above offenses, making them no more serious than a
parking ticket. The only difference between the two city ordinances is
that in Ypsilanti, provisions have been made for a $50 fine for selling
alcohol to people under the age of 18.
Cram away
Students have been warned for years that cramming for
standardized tests does not help, but a recent study by the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) indicates that crash courses can improve
high school students' scores on the tests used for college admissions.
Although results from the study of the Scholastic Aptitude Test
are only preliminary, 'they reveal that in at least one
instance a coaching school was able to improve stu-
dent's scores by 50 points on each half of the test.
This finding is sure to dismay the producer of the SAT, the
Educational Testing Service, because the service has claimed for
years that "crash coaching or drilling probably will not do much to
improve your scores." The study has already caused a bit of an uproar
within the FTC itself. Arthur Levine, an attorney who headed the FTC
study has submitted his resignation to the commission, because they
have not yet released the entire set of findings.

Webster to
WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI Director
William Webster said yesterday he will
fire two FBI agents for their part in
conducting allegedly illegal surveillan-
ce against the radical Weather Un-
derground in the early 1970s, but will
take no action against 59 others.
In addition to firing two agents, the
director announced he will demote one
agent and suspend one for 30 days. All
four had supervisory responsibility,
Webster said.
HE ALSO said he will reprimand two
street agents who conducted
unauthorized surveillance against the
Weather Underground.
Webster said he decided against any
discipline for 59 other agents, including
one supervisor, on grounds they were
acting under orders from superiors and
without clear legal guidance from FBI
headquarters or the Justice Depar-
tment. I
"It seems clear to me that to

discipline the street agents at this late
date for acts performed under super-
vision and without needed legal guidan-
ce from FBI headquarters and the
Department of Justice would wholly
lack any therapeutic value either as a
personal deterrent or as an example to
others," Webster told a news conferen-
ce. "It would be counterproductive and
unfair."
WEBSTER announced the results of
an investigation of 68 agents and super-
visors accused of involvement in
breakins,. wiretaps and mail openings
that were intended to ferret out
Weather Underground fugitives bet-
ween 1970 and 1975.
The remaining three FBI agents in-
volved in the investigation have retired
and are beyond disciplinary action.

former Acting FBI Director L. Patrick
Gray and two of his top aides - are to

relatives of Weather Un- agents could come out if there are ap-
nembers by authorizing the peals.

R SAID he hoped his been FBI director for nine months,

r Underground case has duous one which involved him
BI. emotionally.

"The lessons have beendearned," he
said. "The bureau is committed to
doing its duty under guidelines which
fully protect today's perceptions of
privacy and reasonableness."
The four supervisors who were
disciplined have 10 days to appeal to
Webster to reconsider his decision. Af-
ter that, if Webster stands by his action,
they can take their cases to court and
three of them who are veterans may
appeal to the Civil Service Commission.
Webster withheld the names of all 68
on grounds it would violate their
nrivacy rights to make any names

"I DO CONSIDER myself a member
of this family," he said. But he said he
would have taken the same steps if he
had been an outsider.
Most of the activities against the
Weather Underground were conducted
by the so-called Squad 47 in the New
York field.office. The FBI was seeking
fugitive members of the organization
which claimed responsibility for more
than 35 bombings against such targets
as the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, law
enforcement agencies and corporate
buildings.

Take ten
Ready to head for Washington as Nixon's top economic advisor on
Dec. 6, 1968, current Business School Prof. Paul McCracken said in a
news conference here he thought the American economy could gain
nearly full employment without inflation at that time. He said the then
four per cent inflation rate was unacceptable and that the four per cent
unemployment rate wasn't as low as it could be. He also claimed the
trade-off most economists see between full employment and stable
prices was based on "muddy" empirical evidence.
