Still time for clericals to vote
University clericals reported yesterday a good turnout in their
election to ecide if they will be represented by a union. Clericals that
were hired on or before October 13 may vote today at University
Hospital dining rooms one and two from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. or tomorrow
in the Michigan Union south lounge from 8 to 6 p.m.

DECISION DELA YED UNTIL A T LEAST MONDAY:
Judge may halt welfare abortiom

LANSING (UPI) - A circuit court
judge has delayed until at least Monday
a decision on whether to order an im-
mediate halt to state-paid welfare abor-
tions, but he appeared yesterday to be
leaning against such a move.
Twelve persons, including state Sen.
John Welborn (R-Kalamazoo) and Rep.
Thaddeus Stopcyznski (D-Det'roit),
haveasked the court to issue atem-
porary injunction, pending trial on the
entirescase, to stopathe use of state tax
dollars for welfare abortions.
Ingham County Circuit Court Judge
Jack Warren held a brief hearing on the
matter yesterday and ordered it con-
tinued Monday morning.
WARREN SAID that if he grants an
injunction which later is overturned,
some welfare women will be caught in
the middle and will be too far along in
their pregnancies to then obtain a state-
paid abortion.

He said those children, born into poor
homes, may be seriously harmed "for
lack of the necessities of life."
"That kind of philosophy spurred the
super race in Germany," countered at-
''There's nothing
therapeutic about it. There 's
nothing necessary about i t."
- A ttorney Joseph Zanglin,
arguing against using public
funds for abortions for low-
income women.
torney Joseph Zanglin, arguing against
welfare abortions.
Warren said the case, and the request
for a preliminary injunction, boils down
to a 'very close and very basic''

philosophical argument: Whether abor-
tions are morally justified.
PLAINTIFFS IN the suit claim the
use of Medicaid funds for welfare abor-
tions is in violation of the Social Welfare
Act and the state Constitution.
They argued that the only services to
which welfare clients are entitled are
those which are necessary and required
for their health. An abortion, Zanglin
said, does not fit that criteria.
"There's nothing therapeutic about
it. There's nothing necessary about it,"
he said.
IF THE STATE is forced to pick up
the tab for welfare abortions, it may
also have to pay for other elective
operations such as "hair transplants,
freckles removed and plastic surgery,"
Zanglin said.
"Clearly, this is not the intent of the
legislature," he argued.
Defendants in the suit include Gov.
William Milliken and state Social Ser-
vices Director John Dempsey.
MILLIKEN TWICE this year vetoed
legislation which would have banned
state-paid abortions because he said
such a restriction discriminated again-

st the poor and would deny them
medical treatment available to the
wealthy.
Milliken and Dempsey have asked
Warren to throw the case out com-
pletely, saying it has no merit.
Yet another showdown is scheduled
between Milliken and the legislature on
the issue. The legislature must, before
it adjourns for the year, adopt a
Medicaid budget for January through
September.
Anti-abortion lawmakers have vowed
to again send him a bill which would
outlaw welfare abortions - and such a
measure undoubtedly would face a'
third veto from the governor.

Will the real Phil Hubbard.

. .

Deadly dioxin chemicals
have natural origins-Dow

Hubbard? Griffith

Hubbard

A lot of people would probably recognize Michigan cager Phil
Hubbard if they were to see him on campus, right? Well, you certainly
wouldn't recognize him in this year's Street and Smith's Basketball
Yearbook. Street and Smith's, one of the most highly respected pre-
season publications in the country, picked Hubbard as one of their pre-
season All-American selections, but apparently couldn't find a face
shot to run above his name, Oh, there's a picture accompanying his
name, but it's not of Phil. There is a striking resemblance, however, of
the pseudo-Hubbard shot and a picture of Louisville's Darrell Griffith
on the same page. In fact, on closer inspection, it's pretty obvious that
all S&S did was reverse Griffith's negative, and presto, Phil Hubbard..
Take Ten
Ron Johnson shattered ten rushing records to single-handedly
demolish Wisconsin 34-9 in a downpour at Michigan Stadium on Nov.
16, 1968. It was Michigan's eighth straight win, and combined with
Ohio State's 33-27 squeaker over Iowa, set the state for the struggle
over who would make it to the 1969 Rose Bowl. Also that day, the 15
allies of the North Atlantic Treaty, Organization set up a zone of
security interest in Europe and posted a warning to Moscow against
further "intervention in the affairs of other states."
LSA-SG candidates
The Daily is currently conducting interviews with all candidates
for Literature, Science and Arts Student Government (LSA-SG).
Anyone running for either Executive Council or the presidential and
vice-presidential spots is urged to contact the Daily and set up
interviews with the staff. All interviews will be held Friday afternoon
between noon and 6:00. Candidates running on a party ticket will be
interviewed as a group with time allotted to each person for individual
statements. Independents must arrange individual interview times.

MIDLAND (UPI) - Dow Chemical
Company said yesterday trace amounts
of deadly dioxin chemicals, used as a
defoliant during the Vietnam war, are
spread throughout the environment as
a natural byproduct of combustion.
Dow scientists reporting on a
"significant breakthrough" in the
chemistry of fire, said small amounts of
topic chlorinated dioxins have turned
up in trash incinerators, coal and oil
burning power plants, car mufflers,
home fireplaces, charcoal grills and
cigarettes. However, the scientists said
the amounts are so small -
measurable only in parts per billion -
that they pose no hazard to human
health.
Robert Bumb, research director of
Dow's Michigan division, said traces of
the chemical previously detected in the
environment were believed to be a
waste product in the manufacture of
pesticides and herbicides.
TRACES OF the chemical were
discovered in soil samples and game
fish near Dow's Midlant plant, leading
state and federal environmental agen-
cies earlier this year to ban the eating
of fish from several rivers near the
plant.
"We now think dioxins have been
with us since the advent of fire," Bumb
said. "The only thing that's different is
our new-found ability to detect them."
Bumb denied the findings were
designed to "get Dow off the hook" in
the fish contamination matter. He
called the discovery "a significant
breakthrough in measuring the trace
chemistry of fire."
Chlorinated 4 dioxins were sprayed
from helicopters during the Vietnam
war to defoliate jungles and expose
enemy hideouts. Then President

Richard Nixon ordered a halt to its use
in 1970 when its toxic nature became
known.
"THERE IS NO hazard to humans
exposed to small amounts of dioxin
molecules," Bumb said.u"It's like car-
bon monoxide in that there is no undue
hazard when you minimize exposure to
humans."
He said there is "no realistic way" to
eliminate dioxin contamination
"without a dramatic change in our
lifestyle.
"This ought to relax people who have
been afraid that one molecule is going
to reach out and get them," Bumb said.
"Trace chemicals exist as a result of
nature."
Bumb said Dow's findings have not
yet been shared with scientists outside
the company. He said an independent
panel will be invited to evaluate the
two-year study.
The company is submitting the
results of its research to the state
Department of Natural Resources and
the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency.

How would Shakespeare
have played Cinci?
With gusto. And in all seasons.
It is a brew for listening to a winter's tale. It is a libation in praise ot
a midsummer night's dream.
It is hearty and full-bodied. It is smooth and easy going down.
And the abundant head of Cinci is but prologue.
Verily, 'tis why all the players act upon the theme, "It's too good
to gulp.
