day and Tuesday and report the final
official tallies by late Tuesday after-
But the official winner will not be
known until the State Board of Can-

the results.
The recount became necessary when
the August 8th primary results showed
Trowbridge with a slim, one-vote vic-
tory over Colburn. Colburn filed for a
recount and paid the necessary fee of
$870, $5 for each of the district's 174
ON TUESDAY, the County Board of
Canvassers began recounting the
district's absentee ballots. The board
found that some of the ballots contained
"crossover" votes, places in which
choices were marked for both the

Republican and Democratic slates.
Under state law, this practice is not

will see if there are any problems with
the rotation and code number on the

A handicapped Ann Arbor woman
caused a stir yesterday by refusing to
heed police orders to stop. peddling
clothes and sea shells on the west side
of the Diag.
Yvonne Duffy, confined to a
wheelchair, spent several hours
selling her goods until her efforts
were halted by city police who said
she needed a permit from the
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA).
The conflict, which ended yesterday
afternoon with police issuing Duffy a
code violation for peddling without a
license, began last Saturday.
ON THAT DAY, police officer D. A.
Cutsy approached Duffy and told her

she must obtain a permit to sell, ac-
cording to Duffy. Despite the war-

continued to vend her goods yester-

of city police officers and University

AFTER AN hour of unsuccessful
prodding to make Duffy go home,

police issued the code violation 'and
confiscated her goods. If Duffy
doesn't appear in the 15th District
Court by October 13, her violation will
turn into an arrest warrant and her
goods will be destroyed.
But Duffy, who said police are

PORT HURON (UPI) - A woman
who described herself as a battered
housewife was found innocent Friday of
first-degree murder in the fatal
shooting of her husband.
Patricia Gross, 27, of Port Huron,
was cleared of the charges following
about four hours of deliberations by a
jury of three men and nine women.
Gross, sobbing heavily, jumped from
the defendant's chair moaning, "Oh my
God," after the verdict was announced.
Friends and relatives in the courtroom
embraced her in the courtroom em-
braced her in an emotional scene.
A MOTHER of three, Gross had been
charged in the March 20 fatal shooting
of her husband, Walter, but contended
she acted in self-defense.
She testified during the week-long
trial that her husband beat her on
numerous occasions during their nine
years of marriage, wasconstantly ac-
cusing her of seeing other men and
would not let her out of the house.
But Gross, in testimony that often
was interrupted by her outbursts of
crying,'said she still loved her husband
and regretted that she had killed him.
The husband died of seven gunshot
wounds inflicted with a semi-automatic
.22-caliber rifle. Gross told police who
arrived on the scene that day that her
husband had threatened to kill her prior
to the shooting.
Payne and Thomas Shay, testified that
they once helped Gross and her
children leave town by bus to go stay
with relatives in Mississippi following a
beating that left the woman with a cut
and swollen ear and bumps all over
her head. Gross said she returned with

the children after her husband
threatened to harm her relatives.
Other witnesses told of how Walter
Gross once grabbed his wife by the hair
in a local tavern, threw her on the floor
and then kicked her repeatedly.
On the day of the shooting, Gross said
her husband came home intoxicated,
started yelling and screaming at her
and said he would have beaten her "if
you weren't holding that kid" - a
reference to the couple's seven-month-
old child.
HE LEFT the house, returned about
30 minutes later and the bickering
resumed. When he started walking

towards her, Gross said, she picked up
the rifle and fired at him repeatedly.
Police reports showed 10 Shots were
fired in rapid succession.
Defense attorney Gary Fletcher said
he "felt like falling over in the cour-
troom" when the verdict was read. But,
he added, "I thought that they reached
the correct decision based on the
evidence presented."
Various women's rights groups of-
fered to help Mrs. Gross post bond after
spending two months in jail and help
pay her legal fees, but the offers were
turned down. She accepted financial
help from relatives and friends.

country who can contact top students
and tell them of the University's
benefits," said Sjogren.
To assist the intensified recruitment
drive, the Admissions Office has
received limited funding from the
University for mailings and travel.
Admissions Office officials, however,
are quick to point out that recruitment
at the academic level is still aimed
primarily at in-state students.
"It is still only a very small portion of
University resources which are being
used to recruit out-of-state students,"
said Edward Dougherty, assistant to
the vice-president for academic affairs.
"Ninety per cent of our efforts are
still devoted to recruiting in-state

"We've been trying for years to at-
tract these students, but they are much
harder to get hold of," said Sjogren.
"Though they may be of the highest
academic standing, they often come

Admissions Office officials say they
are confident their recruitment efforts
will be successful.
"By looking-at the improved in-state
scores, one can see that our recruit-

successful," said Sjogren, "and we
want to keep this school at the highest
academic standard possible."
WASHINGTON (AP)-If there seem
to be just too many cars on the roads
today, it's undoubtedly because the
nation's miles of roadway are not
keeping pace with increased traffic,
says the Road Information Program.
The information service reports there

the United States, an increase of 16
percent since 1968.
