Newcomer perseveres
Although John Montgomery is still recovering from defeat in
Monday's mayoral primary it appears he's not likely to disappear
from the local political scene. Yesterday, Montgomery vowed, "I'll
run again." He said he is yet unsure of what party he'll be running
with, calling that an "interesting question." A number of people have
spoken to Montgomery about joining them to form a new party, he
said, but plans and platforms are still "up in the air."
Election results
The only aspect of Monday's city primary that raised some
eyebrows was the new punch card voting system which the 2,766
voters had no trouble mastering. The innovations in exercising the
franchise failed t alter the outcome from the expectations of most ob-
servers. The only contested races were in the Third Ward Republican
and Democratic mayor's race. The canvassers are still counting
write-ins, but here are the official results, as of yesterday afternoon.

THE LETTER
BETTE DAVIS, HERBERT MARSHALL and GALE SONDERGAARD star in this
adaptation of Somerset Maugham's tale of adultery, murder and an incrim-
inating letter. Davis in "an unforgettable portrait of sanctimonious hypocrisy
camouflaging gross passion. For once, the film was as fine as her perform-
ance."

Michigan's only Democratic Senator at the time, the late Philip
Hart, said on Feb. 21, 1969 during a talk at Alice Lloyd Hall that "you
can make a strong case" for legislative investigations on college cam-
puses. "The legislature is sending substantial millions of dollars here.
It's not logical that students of that body can't come on campus to see
how that money is spent." The statement was made in reference to the
establishment of a new State Senate committee the previous month to
study campus unrest.

Quick cash
The folks at Western Union seem to be reading our minds as
spring break's arrival is desperately awaited. They now offer a quick
cash card to transfer up to $300 from a friend or relative's Master
Charge or VISA account, in case you are rendered short of funds in the
middle of the vacation. What makes this feature most attractive to
students is that test questions can be substituted for lost identification.
If the idea catches on, maybe they'll start accepting exam copies as
proof of age at bars.
They're asking too much
We know all the ads that claim Coke adds life but is it really worth
a dollar a can? In Peking that's the going rate for the beloved
American beverage, but so far it isn't a big seller. Along with the first
shipment of Coke from Hong Kong came a confusing set of prices and
regulations which require American or Hong Kong dollars in ex-
change for the sugary speed water. That means few Chinese will ever
get a sip of the caramel-colored stuff, which may be a blessing in
disguise.

By RICK BLANCHARD
ALTHOUGH HARP seals and Blue
whales are miles away from the frozen
streets of Ann Arbor, Greenspace, an
environmental watch dog
organization, has a dedicated local fac-
tion operating out of a cramped room in
the fourth floor of the Michigan Union.
According to Juliet Minard,
spokesperson for the organization,
"Greenpeace is an action-oriented
group using non-violent confrontations
as a means of affecting change." "Non
violent confrontations involve humans
placing their lives in the way of en-
vironmentally detrimental forces."
GREENPEACE BEGAN in 1970 to
focus public attention on underground
nuclear tests taking place in Amchitke,
Alaska, but now its concern centers on
'the whaling issue and, during the last
three years, the protection of the baby
Harp seal population.
According to scientists, including
those from Canadian fisheries, the seal
population has been reduced by 60 per
cent over the last 25 years.
"The infant seals are clubbed to
death and their misty white pelts are
taken to the fur processor," continues
Minard. "Already these pelts are ban-
ned by the French government, forbid-
den within its jurisdiction by Denmark
and condemned by the U.S. House of
Representatives."
"YET THE MASSACRE goes on,"

says Minard, "and this year an
estimated 180,000 baby Harp seals will
be killed during the annual mid-March
seal hunt off the Newfoundland coast."
The current Harp seal population is
about one million, according to a sur-
vey by independent Swedish scientists.
Seal hunt advocate for the Newfoun-
dland government Neil McKenty said
on'a recent visit to Detroit, "The seal
hunt helps tide the fishermen over until
the summer cod season begins ands
where subsistance is an issue, allowan-
ces must be made."
According to a recent report made by
the Canadian government, over half a
of the landsman sealers make $100 a
year or less from the hunt, while three
quarters of them make $200 or less. The
report showed that these are people
with 3.5 dependents living in isolated
communities and whose welfare is a
major reason for the hunt.
This income from the Harp seal hunt
brings in less than $25 per dependent
yearly which is less than 10 per cent of
the family allowance payments
receivable from the Canadian gover-
nment. And, according to the report,
the seal hunt supplies work for .1 per
cent of the population of Newfoundland
for five weeks.
In response to the coming seal,
slaughter, the local Greenspace group
is sponsoring a "Save the Seals Rally"
on March 16 at the Kennedy Square in
Detroit. Transportation from Ann Ar-
bor to Detroit will be supplied.

From UPI and Reuter
Doug Allen, 23, of Decatur, Ill., a
mamber of the Greenpeace movement,
scaled the Eiffel tower in freezing
weather yesterday and strung above
the second platform a banner reading
"Sauvez les Phoques (Save the Seals) ."
After half an hour four police scaling
experts started climbing towards
Allen's perch, but he came down to the
first landing before they reached him.

Police took the young climber briefly
into custody, after he took an hour to
ascend the steel structure in a dramatic
start of his movement's 1979 campaign
against the slaying of baby seals.
A Greenpeace spokesman said in
Britain yesterday that its vessel, the
"Rainbow Warrior," would set sail
from Great Yarmouth for the Canadian
coast where the group planned to
disrupt the seal-hunt yet again.
