In yesterday's paper, we carried a United Press International story
which reported that the Eastern Michigan Unversity faculty strike
began on September 13 - the first day of classes. Actually, the first
day of classes at EMU was September 6. The faculty worked until
September 13 without a contract and walked off the job on that date.
In late September, 1968, a report put together by a group of seven
University law students entitled, "The Administration of Justice in the
Wake of the Detroit Riot of July, 1967" was released, indicting
practices in Detroit Recorder's Court during and after the riot. The
panel charged that the rights of defenddnts were violated in case after
case. The 86-page report, which was published in the Michigan Law
Review, listed "assembly line" procedures, high bail and de facto
suspension of the writ of habeus corpus among its complaints about

Vets adjust to
By MARION HALBERG -
Ron Loveless is 23, attends the
University of Michigan, and feels
separated from the other students in his
"Most of the people are only two
years younger than me, but it seems
like a different culture," he said.
Loveless is one of approximately 750
veterans who attend the University
each year through benefits provided by
the GI Bill.
"YOU GO TO the Army," Loveless
said. "You come back, and then you go
off to school. You go away and grow up.
You're taught to survive. You get
culturized. Then you're sitting in a
class and you feel much more worldly
than the other students. Then there's
that feeling - oh, oh, I'm outside again.
I'm not relating."
Dennis Coiling, who works for the
University's Veterans Affairs office in
the LSA Building, says many vets share
"Some try coming back to college on-
ce and get discouraged. A lot of people
don't feel welcome," said Colling.
WHY DO VETERANS bother to try
college after the years they have
missed? The GI Bill is available to any
veteran with a better than dishonorable
discharge who has served at least 181
days of continuous duty between
January 31, 1955 and January 1, 1977.
The bill entitles veterans to 45 months
of full-time benefits, or an equivalent
amount for part-time study. But as
Colling points out: "I think a lot of
people overestimate the amount of
money actually received by the bill."
The veterans receive only a stipend
for study. The amount is based on the
number of dependents they have.
A vet with no dependents gets $311a
month, while one with two dependents
receives $422 a month. (These figures.
are for a full-time study basis.)
FOR MANY attending this Univer-
sity, the money barely pays for tuition.
"I felt misled," Loveless said. "The
GI Bill was the reason for me going to
the army. I really went into the trip of
"But when they recruit," he added,
they tell you everything that you want
to hear, not what you want to know."
Tim Artist, a 28-year-old Vietnam
veteran, shares this feeling. "They
shouldn't hide it under the pretense of,

New diet food rules set
WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Food
and Drug Administration today issued
new rules under which foods which
promote themselves as "low calorie"
must contain no more than 40 calories
In addition, foods which are billed as
"reduced calories" can use that phrase
only if they have at least one-third
fewer calories than the food to which
nthey are being compared.
"The purpose of this new regulation
is to assure that foods labeled 'low
calorie' or 'reduced calorie' genuinely
represent a caloric savings," FDA
Commissioner Donald Kennedy said.
"Consumers who buy foods intended
for weight control will have a better
understanding of what they are buying
and labels will be more uniform so
consumers can more easily compariso
All foods introduced into interstate
commerce after July 1 of next year will
have to comply with the rules which
were originally proposed in 1977.
Under the rules, foods which claim
low or reduced calories must carry a
complete nutrition label describing the
calories-per-serving as well as the
vitamin, fat and other content.
