arvey requests $92,000 for
°reation of intelligence squad
Party seeks support
(Continued from Page 1)
Sheriff Harvey has denied that
the primary purpose of the squad
is to engage in political surveil-
lance on the campuses.
Harvey told a Detroit Free Press
reporter he did not intend to use
grant money to purchase bugging
equipment. "We already have it,"
he said two weeks ago.
The executive committee will
make a recommendation on the
proposal to the full meeting of the
board next week and the board will
then recommend acceptance or re-
jection of the request to the coun-
ty board of commissioners, which
is being asked for $23,015 towards
the cost of the proposed squad.
The board will also forward re-
commendations to both Region

People's peace group

(Continued from Page 1)
The conference will also discuss
means of implementing the treaty
and attracting national publicity
to it. Some treaty supporters have
discussed a possible national dem-
onstration during May.
According to Spears, May is
significant because it is the an-
niversary of last year's Cambo-
dian invasion. Furthermore, he
explains, it marks the start of the
rainy season in Vietnam when
ground action is difficult and U.S.
forces attempt to regain lost ter-
ritory through air offensives.
Finally, it is the beginning of
legi sl ature to
LANSING (P) - A Republican
state senator wants to abolish the
elected governing boards of Mich-
igan's "Big Three" universities and
replace them with seven-member
boards named by the governor.
Sen. Robert Davis of Gaylord
said the appointed-board system,
with appointments subject to Sen-
ate confirmation, "would be much
more responsive to the public"
than are the elected boards.
The University's Regents, the
Trustees of Michigan State Uni-
versity, and the Wayne S t a t e
University Board of Governors are
presently elected by the people of
Davis said he would propose a
constitutional amendment to
change the system.
Such a proposal would require
a two-thirds vote of both house
and senate before it could appear.
on thesgeneral election ballot for
a decision by Michigan voters.
A similar proposal failed in the
Michigan Senate last year.
Davis said that under his pro-
posed system, board members
would serve staggered four-year
terms and not more than four
members would be from any one
Davis noted that other institu-
tions of higher learning supported
by state tax funds are operated by
separate boards whose members
are appointed by the governor.
"This is a much better system
and, in the interests of consist-
ency and of more responsive con-
trol of the institutions, boards of
the three largest universities
should be named the same way."
the period during which the
Thieu-Ky regime must consolidate
its position if it is to win the fall
elections, Spears adds.
He says it is important for the
people of the United States to
show support for the people of
Vietnam at such a critical time.
However, "We see demonstra-
tions as a negative form of imple-
mentation of a treaty we would
make," Spears says. He mentions
programs such as information ex-
change between scientists of Viet-
nam and the United States as
more positive form of action.
The conference schedule calls
for an evening plenary on Friday,
Feb. 5, with several Asian schol-
ars speaking. Saturday afternoon's
agenda includes workshops to dis-
cuss the treaty.
Saturday evening will feature a
multi-media cultural event. Sun-
day will commence with a large
plenary session followed by re-
The organizers of the conven-
tion say they have had no diffi-
culty in obtaining University fa-
cilities for the convention. Spears
said they had been afraid of trou-
ble since permission was denied to
hold the conference at Kent State
University and the National Coa-
lition Against War, Racism an(
Repression, one of the major sup-
porters of the treaty, has been th
target of much FBI investigation.
"Another reason I think there
will be a lot of surveillance if not
repression is because of the veryb
idea of the treaty itself," says
Spears. "The US government does
not want to see a resurgence of the
Law Enforcement Planning Coun-
cil of the South Eastern Michigan
Council of Governments and the
Michigan Commission on Law En-
forcement and Criminal Justice.
Applications for $64,046 of fed-
eral Safe Streets Act money for
which the sheriff is applying must
be cleared by all these bodies, prior
to the acceptance of the proposal.
University President Robben
Fleming has openly opposed the'
squad, as has Mayor Robert Har-
ris. Harris has refused to permit
the Ann Arbor police to cooperate
with the squad.
The squad has the support,
however, of over a dozen other
law enforcement agencies in
Washtenaw County, Livingston
County and Monroe County.
The operational command of the
squad will be in the hands of
Washtenaw County Undersheriff
Harold Owings, although the
scope of the squad's activities is
Objections to the squad have
centered around fears that it
would engage in political surveil-
lance on campuses in the area.
The Faculty Reform Coalition,
a group of faculty at the Univer-
sity, was the most recent group to
censure the idea for an "Intelli-
gence Squad." At a recent meeting
they urged the University admin-
istration "to take all measures
necessary to ensure that police
activities on the campus remain
under firm limits and control."
The Ann Arbor Model Cities

last week condemning the pro-
posed squad and student leaders

made known their opposition to1
Three physics professors have

The one-year grant was award-

The three professors will con-

Memory can best be described as that function of the brain which
deserts you during an exam. Today, therefore, let us take up mnemon-
ics, or little tricks to aid the memory.
As you know of course, mnemonics is named after Mnemon, the
hero of possibly the loveliest of all the Greek myths. It tells how the
Athenian youth Mnemon fell in love with the wood nymph Ariadne,
and she with him. Indeed, so oblivious were these two to everything
except each other, that one year they forgot to attend the festival of
Demeter, the goddess of bran. Well sir, naturally Demeter got pretty
wroth, and to make sure the lovers would never forget again, she
changed Ariadne into a finger and Mnemon into a piece of string.
A lovely myth, as you can see, and as you know of course, it's
been the inspiration for dozens of richly romantic books, plays and
operas, including La Traviata, Deerslayer and The Joys of Yiddish.
But I digress. Mnemonics, I say, are little tricks to aid the mem-
ory. For example, here's how I learned my Zip Code-72846. I broke
it into two smaller groups of digits, each with a special meaning. Like
See how easy it is now? The first group of digits, 72, is, as you
know of course, the number of days in the gestation cycle of the larger
marsupials, like the oryx, the bushy lemur and the Toyota. And the
second group, 846, you will instantly recognize of course as Dick Tracy's

But some people say that mnemonics, useful though they may
be, will soon be replaced by a far better memory aid. In fact, say they,
we are on the verge of a fantastic new breakthrough. Recent experi-
ments have definitely proved that memory is carried in the brain cells
by the sub-molecule called RNA. Therefore, say they, as soon as sci-
ence learns how to synthesize RNA, all we'll have to do is swallow a
teaspoon of it and-presto!-instant memory.
(Incidentally, if you're wondering what the initials RNA stand
for, I forgot. I do recall, however, what DNA stands for. When the
eminent biochemist Alfred J. Sigafoos was isolating DNA back in
1960, he carried on experiments of such incredible delicacy you can
scarcely believe it. Why, do you know that he was actually dissecting
tissues only a trillionth of an inch thick? That's why his fellow lab
workers named the stuff DNA-for "Don't Nudge Alfred.")
But I digress. Some people, I say, believe that science will soon
decode RNA. But others are doubtful. How can anybody decode RNA,
they ask, when they can't even figure out the brewing formula of
Miller High Life Beer?
It's true, you know. Miller High Life is absolutely unique. No
competitor has ever been able to duplicate it. Oh sure, they've tried.
In fact, they've been trying for 115 years. And that's how long they've
been failing because from the very beginning Miller's brewing formula
has been a secret known to only one man on earth-Miller's chief
brewmaster-and he never tells it to another soul until, on his death-
bed, he whispers it into the ear of his eldest son.
Take, for example, the current chief brewmaster at Miller High
Life-Heinrich Lockjaw the XIIth. A veritable tomb is Heinrich the
XIIth. Believe me, he's been offered plenty to divulge the formula.
And I don't mean just money; I mean treasures far more precious-
the Mona Lisa, the Elgin Marbles, Belgium, the only existing skeleton
of Charlemagne as a boy, the original manuscript of Tile Joys of Yiddish.
But Heinrich the XIIth just keeps shaking his head, determined that
the secret of Miller High Life shall be his alone until, with his final
