1972 Presidential election.
Class members were chosen sev-
eral weeks ago to represent six
of the candidates including Demo-
,ratic Senators Edmund Muskie,
Hubert Humphrey, George Mc-
Govern, Henry Jackson, John
Lindsay and President Nixon.
Each "candidate" was allowed
four staff members. Students also
portrayed network TV representa-

other students in the course have
portrayed voters in primary elec-

The candidates have so far pro-

even if it's just make-believe, and
to get results."
The ten discussion sections of

Members of UC say the Univer-
sity community should have com-
plete control over the activities of
the police unit, but add they are
willing to compromise with an ad-
visory committee for now.
"If we have a campus police
force, we should control it," says

of UC. He says that negotiations

he said, the University will have

Both Burt and UC chairman Bob
Nelson, '74L, agree that the issue
of University control over the
force should be brought up at that
The proposal for a, committee
advisory to Davids is a "fairly
weak proposal in my opinion,"
Nelson said. "But it's a step in
the right direction," he added.
"At least it's a way for people
to voice their opinions and griev-
ances through channels separate
from the decision-making struc-
ture," he said.
Nelson said, however, that the
consensus of UC now is that the


University community should have
greater decision-making powers in
the police unit. He said he would
eventually like to see decisions
made by a board of students and
faculty members.

S mit bill proposes prescribed,
use of hard drugs by addicts

Special To The Daily
LANSING - Rep. Raymond
Smit (R-Ann Arbor) is co-spon-
soring a bill, introduced yester-
day in the state House, which
would allow medical practition-
ers to prescribe hard drugs to
drug addicts.
According to Smit, enactment
of this legislation would make it
no longer necessary for addicts
to resort to crime and theft to
support their illness.
The bill calls for the creation
of a state agency to deal with
drug addiction and provide for
the distribution of prescribed
hard drugs to addicts under the
care of the agency.
The bill also outlines the
establishment of "therapeutic
communities" for persons over
18 in geographic areas where
high concentrations of drug ab-
use exist. Probate court could
assign persons under 18 to such
The "therapeutic community"
would be a communal living fa-
cility where persons could live
and work with others who are
fighting off drug addiction in a

Most of these treatment cen-
ters, however, differ from those
envisioned by Smit's bill in that
they were privately founded and
maintain a private status al-
though some receive state aid.
The idea of prescribing hard
drugs to addicts follows current
practice in Qreat Britain.
The bill proposed yesterday is
unusual in that it does not fol-
low strictly either the British

model-of prescribing drugs to
addicts-or the Synanon model
-of using the g r o u p living
structure to reinforce the former
addict's complete withdrawal
from drugs. Instead, it combines
the two approaches.
Smit said yesterday he rea-
lizes the bill would be "one of
the most controversial ever in-
troduced" in the state legisla-

The deputy sheriff stared coldly through

That statement yesterday ended a local

Moments later, however, Florey was in-
formed that Rollins did not wish to leave.

The three organizations involved have a
