Take ten
A great deal was going on over at MSU Nov. 12, 1968. First, three
top editors at the student paper, the State News, had to take a cut in
pay after running an allegedly off-color story on a situation at the
University of Wisconsin where the paper there had come under fire for
printingobscene words and retaliated by running excerpts from Lady
Chatterly's Lover. The State News editors reprinted some of the
Lawrence book in their coverage of the affair. Also, a vice president at
MSU was cleared that day from a conflict of interest charge by selling
business interests to his brother.

CALIFANO'S WARNING on
paraquat last March 12 created a stir
within the nation's marijuana-smoking
community. Users reacted with fear
about the safety of their marijuana and
resentment of the U.S. role in supplying
$35 million to Mexico to support
spraying the herbicide on poppy and
marijuana fields.
There was a brief but frenzied flurry
of private labs offering paraquat
analysis and sales to a do-it-yourself
test kit that later was found not to work.
The PharmChem Research Foun-
dation of Menlo Park, Calif., became a
clearinghouse for marijuana tests, and
reported finding paraquat on 30 to 50
per cent of the pot that smokers sent in
anonymously. But the federal Center

The report released yesterday was
based on examination of Mexican
marijuana confiscated by the Drug En-
forcement Administration in Califor-
.nia, Texas and Arizona in 1976 and 1977.
THIRTEEN OF 100 lots were con-
taminated. Institute scientists said all
13 were in 61 lots seized after Oct. 22,
1976, however, so they pegged the con-
tamination rate at 21 per cent.
But they admitted they had no way of
telling if 21 per cent of the marijuana
actually sold on the street was con-
taminated. The institute says it knows
of no confirmed cases of paraquat
poisoning.
The institute's 13 contaminated lots
contained traces of paraquat ranging
from 3 to 2,264 parts per million, with an
average of 455 parts per million.
However, only five of the lots contained
more than 92 parts per million, the in-
stitute added.
The institute report said about 97 per
cent of any paraquat in marijuana is
destroyed harmlessly when the cigaret-
te is lighted.

Cereal antitrust case
standsill continues

Daily Oficial Bulle tin

WASHINGTON (AP)-One of the
government's major antitrust cases, a
61/2-year-old assault on the cereal in-
dustry, is at a standstill and may soon
suffer another setback.
The Federal 'Trade Commission
(FTC) has ordered a halt to the mam-
moth case it instituted in 1972-a case
that hinges on a theory that the leading
cereal companies constitute a "shared-
monopoly."
The FTC has held up further action on
the cereal case because of a problem in-
volving Administrative Law Judge
Harry Hinkes, the man who has
presided over the case since its incep-
tion.
The problem stems from Hinkes'
retirement in September. He signed a
''professional services'' contract. with
the FTC calling for $46,800 through next
August while he finished work on the
case and submits his opinion to the
commission.
HOWEVER, ONE of the companies
accused in the case, General Mills, Inc.,
challenged the arrangement, saying it
violates Civil Service rules. The com-
mission suspended activity in the case
while it considers the General Mills
motion.
Hinkes had been expected to finish
the trial next year. But if he is
disqualified, substantial parts of the
case might have to be retried at heavy
cost and with major new delays. The
FTC already has spent some $5 million
on the case.
Whenever the cereal industry case is
decided, it is expected to have a major

impact in antitrust enforcement.
IF THE FTC eventually wins, the
government is expected to use it as a
precedent to seek divestitures in other,
highly concentrated industries. But if
the FTC loses, the government will be
discouraged from bringing similar
cases involving alleged "shared
monopolies."
The original 1972 complaint said that
the four largest manufacturers of
ready-to-eat cereal controlled about 90
per cent of the market. It said they
realized that if they were aggressive in
competing with outsiders and rot with
each other, they all would be highly
profitable.
A commission staff study estimated
that cereal prices would be 20 per cent
to 25 per cent lower in a truly com-
petitive market.
In addition to General Mills, defen
dants in the case are Kellogg Co. and
General Foods Corp. Charges against a
fourth cereal company, Quaker Oats
Co., were dropped earlier this year.
The government alleges, among
other things, that industry leaders pur-
sue "follow-the-leader" pricing prac-
tices, participate in policies that limit
access by competitors to grocery store
shelves and introduced about 150 new
cereal brands between 1950 and 1970 to
stifle competition.
The trial phase of the government's
antitrust proceedings began in May
1976 after extensive resistance by the
companies to the FTC's subpoenas for
documents to support its charges.

THE LAST DETAIL
From the pen at celebrated screenplay writer, Robert Towne, comes the
story of "Bad Ass" Bodinsky, a low-ranking Navy man who is assigned to
escort a compulsive thief (Randy Quard) to a naval prison in Maine. Their
no-holds barred, last-fling adventures along way provide the substance of
the movie and one of the richest= and most.humorous character studies in
years. JACK NICHOLSON, once again, nominated for an Academy Award,
turns in yet another rendition of his inimitable film persona. Quard was
also nominated for Best Supporting Actor. With CAROL KANE (from Hester
Street and Annie Hatt).
