Franz Mogdis, unlike his rival Au-
gustine Lalonde, has not sought a seat
on City Council before this year.
He has chosen to run, he says, be-
cause "the present representatives of
the party in City Council need to be
more flexible and aggressive in leader-
ship."
"City Council," Mogdis continues,
"lacks the experience and background
it needs in order to evaluate the in-
formation given it byy the city admin-
istrator and other various city depart-
ments."
With a background in research data,
Mogdis believes he is well qualified in
the area of evaluating city planning
matters.
Concerning the issue of planned
growth, Mogdis says that growth is un-

DISRUPTION DAY:

of

North. Ireland
campaign fopS
BELFAST (N-Northern Ireland's D-for disruption Day, a
24-hour campaign planned by civil rights leaders to cause
civic chaos, caused barely a ripple in the province yesterday.
In Belfast and Londonderry, promised protests on a mass
scale did not materialize. Most shops, schools and factories
in Northern Ireland's two major cities opened normally.
"It is an absolute disaster at the moment," Londonderry
civil rights leader Michael Havord said.
.4 The Day of Disruption was called by the predominately
Roman Catholic Civil Rights Association to protest Northern
Ireland's policy of interning suspected gunmen without trial.
Both the government and security forces had braced for
huge Catholic support of the Civil Rights Association's cam-

paign which was aimed at
closing factories and scchools,
jamming telephone communi-
cations and blocking roads.
By noon, however, the telephone
network was working almost nor-
mally and a few roads near Lon-
donderry and border with the Irish
republic, which had been blocked
by felled trees and telegraph poles
overnight, had been cleared by the
army.
In Belfast, the only outward sign,
of protest was a march through
the city center by 500 school chil-
dren chanting, "Free the inter-
nees!"
Many Catholic businesses and
schools opened as usual in London-

pected to be strongest.

sex bias
By MARCIA ZOSLAW --
The Commission for Women
yesterday assailed University
efforts to end discrimination
against women in its employ-
ment practices, calling them
"cosmetic attempts" to gloss
over women's problems.
The attack resulted from a ten-
month long commission survey of
the University's 7,000 female em-
ployes, aimed at' evaluating the
University's goals and timetables
for increased hiring of women.
The survey concluded that the
goals and timetables were inade-
quate, the University's personnel
data store was insufficient, and
its efforts to eliminate discrim-
ination "poorly enforced."
It also cited:
-Continued widespread salary
and classification inequities be-
tween male and female employes
doing the same job;
-Frequent underclassification
of women, resulting in their in-
creased performance of duties
without corresponding increases in
salary; and
-Low pay for clerical jobs which
have traditionally been held by Univers

Among the more successful

Role of media irks columnist

Forrester quoted a state law
which declares "the Jury Board
shall select from the current voter
registration list or books the
names of persons as herein pro-
vided to serve as jurors."
Under Michigan Law, the jury
board is required -to meet an-
nually during the month of May,
according to Forrester. However,
the law also permits the board to
meet at "other times and places",
he said.
"I am informed and believe that
the jury board for Washtenaw
County has neglected to hold a
special meeting that it is em-
powered to, and does not plan to
add the new voters to the jury
lists until its next regular meeting
in May, Forrester continued.
"The result of this sunposed
neglect is that I am having my
human rights to the due process
of law, allegedly guaranteed me
by the 14th amendment to the
United State Constitution, de-
stroyed."
Forrester said he hopes other
defendants will file similar mo-
tions "to help rectify the situa-
tion."

By GENE ROBINSON
"Objectivity is an inseparable
part of how this civilization
thinks."
These words came from an un-
likely source yesterday, as na-
tionally syndicated and politically
outspoken columnist Nicholas von
Hoffman addressed a sizeable
audience here at Rackham Aud.
The lecture was sponsored by the
journalism department, as part of

that newspapers and magazines in
particular have begun a self-ex-
amination process about the advo-
cacy positions they have taken in
the past.
"Now editors who played par-
chesi in Camelot with the Ken-
nedys are beginning to wonder
whether or not they should have,"
he said.
Von Hoffman cited a "craving

Black inlitant Williams denies

By JANET GORDON
Despite earlier reports to the contrary, black militant Robert
Williams, who faces extradition from Michigan to North Carolina
for a kidnapping charge, says he will not testify before the Senate
Internal Security Committee to clear himself of a contempt citation.
Williams, a former member of the University's Center for
Chinese Studies who spent several years in Cuba, Africa and The
Peoples' Republic of China, testified before the Committee in 1970,
but was charged with contempt for failing to appear last July 8.
The former leader of the New African Republic said that he
did not appear because the committee was "prying into my per-
