Deaths spur
new riots in
North Ireland
From Wire Service Reports
Guerrillas in Northern Ireland yesterday struck back
with bombs, bullets and defiant parades-protesting the
killing of 13 civilians in a clash with British troops.
The deaths were a result of rioting Sunday which broke
out after a civil rights march was held despite a govern-
ment ban.
Official retaliation from the Irish Republic to the south
jincluded the recall of its ambassador from London. Mean-

State Sen

President, precinct delegates

LANSING (P) - The State Sen-
ate voted last night in favor of a
combined primary and precinct
delegate election for Michigan on
May 9.
The much-debated, long-stalled
measure passed by a vote of 34-2
and now goes to the House.
The bill provides for the simul-
taneous votes on presidential
hopefuls and precinct delegates
to county conventions. County
convention delegates decide at

state conventions who goes to the
national presidential convention.
It also says the number of state
delegates a presidential candidate
can take to a national convention
must be proportional to the num-
ber of votes the candidate got in
the presidential primary.t
' Presidential candidates will not
be able to hand pick a slate of
delegates as is done in other
An amendment introduced from

HRP forms party platform;
- a step toward April elections

the floor will allow local units of
government to bill the state for
election costs which are expected
to range between $475,000 and
The bill is a hammered-out
compromise between Republicans,
who wanted a presidential pri-
mary, and Democrats, who want-
ed a new election of precinct dele-
gates. The bill went through doz-
ens of amendments before the
final draft was voted on.
Critics have questioned the
ability of the state to hold a presi-
dential primary on the proposed
May 9, date..
According to House Speaker
William. Ryan, (D-Detroit),, the
mechanics of an election, includ-
ing informing presidential candi-
dates and printing ballots, could
easily delay the primary until the
end of May.
A later date would work to
Michigan's advantage,dRyan said.
By late in May, he contended, the
field of pr-sidential contenders
would narrow, giving Michigan a
more decisive role in the selection
of a presidential candidate at the

Laird would not commit himself
as to when the draft would be re-
sumed or how many men would
be drafted for the rest of the year.
President Richard Nixon has
set a goal of ending the draft by
the middle of 1973. Specialists who
are predicting low draft calls for
the remainder of this year are
doubtful that the President's goal
of an all-volunteer army can be
reached by that date.

HEW requested similar informa-
tion and the school failed to pro-
duce it.
A spokesman for Columbia esti-
mated at that time that the com-
pilation of data could not be com-
pleted before November, 1973, a
date HEW termed "unrealistic."
Following HEW's first investi-
gation, the University acknowl-
edged that $350,000 in federal con-
tracts were not granted. However

The Human Rights Party Sunday approved a
party platform calling for a variety of programs
ranging from the repeal of all laws regulating
4exual activity, to an end to the U.S. involve-
ment in Southeast Asia.
The party plank also calls for:

-Repeal of all abortion laws;

selected HRP candidates.
HRP coordinator Nancy Wechsler was not upset
that only about 25 persons worked on the final
version of the platform. "Some people had worked
on the individual planks and they knew that onuy
good things would be presented so they didn't
bother to come," said Wechsler.
Detailing individual planks, the platform states

The steadily rising rate of thefts in the
dorms has compelled the University to
retaliate against would-be thieves with a
new barrage of security systems aimed at
keeping residents' property on the inside
and thieves on the outside.
However, over a year since these systems
were introduced, it has been found they
have had little or no effect in cr nbating

that the severity of thefts has increased
this year."
"It used to be that all that was taken
was cash and small personal items. Re-
cently, however, students are losing hun-
dreds of dollars worth of equipment at one
time," he adds.
According to security personnel, the in-
creased number of thefts seems to be the
result of more outsiders in the residence
