No ' ID, no game
In an attempt to cut down on non-students using
student rate football tickets, the Athletic office is
requiring students to present their University stu-
dent ID along with their football ticket when at-
tending this year's home football games - that's
what the little red tag on the end of your ticket
means. Ticket Manager Al Renfrew says, "We
simply want students to be the ones who use the
tickets." So, if you happen to be a student and
plan on attending this Saturday's game, don't for-
get your ID card.

to Frye's wife, "Billy is from the south and they

people Billy, Tommy and Bobby down there. His

Vigilantes?
Attorney General William Saxbe said yesterday
violent crime is spreading so intensively that vigi-
lante groups may organize to take the law into
their own hands. "If the present trends continue,
the prospect of where America may be a decade
from now . . . is enough to evoke a shudder
from even the most optimistic," Saxbe said.
"There could no longer be any place to hide - no
safe zones, not for anybody," he said. "In fact,
we may be near that point already." Saxbe used
his strongest language and portrayed the darkest
outlook he has expressed thus far in comments on
the rising crime rate, especially of violent crime,
in a speech prepared for delivery to the Ohio Re-
tailess' Association. The target of Saxbe's concern
is a new FBI crime report that shows the rate of
serious crime soared 16 per cent in the last quar-
ter of 1973 and for the first three months of 1974
was 15 per cent above the same period last year.

Typical
Although women employes make up well over
half of the work force of Boston's insurance com-
panies, only about 2.4 per cent of those women
earn more than $10,000 a year, according to a re-
port by "9 to 5", an organization of women office
workers. Fran Cicchetti, spokeswoman for the
group, accused the insurance industry on Monday
of "flagrant violations of state and federal equal
pay laws" in its treatment of women employes.
She said women make up 58.3 per cent of the work
force at Boston insurance companies, but 86.2 per
cent of them are employed in low paying clerical
positions and added that 51 per cent of the men
working for the firms earn more than $10,000.

Studies aminesty for
48persons involved
WASHINGTON (A -- President Ford is studying the
possibility of pardoning all those convicted or accused of
Watergate-related crimes, a spokesman said yesterday.
The surprise disclosure, heightening the controversy
touched off by Ford's pardon for Richard Nixon, was
made by Acting Press Secretary John Hushen, who said
he spoke with Ford's expressed authorization.
"The question of pardons is under study," he said, adding
that the review embraces all 48 individuals who have been ac-
cused of crimes associated with the Watergate label. Of the 48, 39
have pleaded guilty or been convicted by juries.
I CAN GIVE you no further guidance," Hushen said.
White House counsel Philip Buchen later told reporters he
understood Ford was personally conducting the pardon study at
this point but that he, Buchen, expected to be involved later.
Buchen said he believed Ford first disclosed his interest in
possible broad-scale Watergate pardons at a morning meeting
with Hushen and counselor Robert Hartmann.

HUSHEN was asked by a
newsman if he understood the
likely impact of his Ford-au-
thorized statement on a nation
already divided over the merits
of the Nixon pardon.
"I think those factors have
been taken into account," he
said, adding that the launching
of a study did not mean par-
dons actually would be granted.
Reaction from powerful con-
gressional Democrats was swift
and critical. Senate Democratic
whip Robert Byrd of West Vir-
ginia said new pardons "would
complete the cover-up of the
cover-up." House Speaker Carl
Albert, (D-Okla.), said they
"would be viewed as an abuse
of presidential power."
SEN. JAMES Buckley, (R-N.
Y.), said, however, "I certain-
lv think it's appropriate for
these cases. to be reviewed. But
I haven't thought it through."
Sen. Sam Ervin, (D-N.C.),
Senate Watergate committee
chairman, said it would be a
mockery to pardon "these men
who undertook to steal from the
American people their right to a
free election . .
At the special Watergate pro-
secutor's office, spokesman
James Doyle said, "I don't
think I'm surprised" that Ford
would consider the pardons.
ATTORNEYS for six defen-
dants, in the Watergate cover-
up trial conferred all morning
on a joint strategy.
Hushen reported that the
White House had tabulated 16,-
000 telegrams on the Nixon par-
don by late yesterday morning
and found them running 6-1 in
opposition to Ford's grant of
federal immunity to be resigned
president.
However, Hushen said tele-
phone reaction has "changed
around rather significantly" and

Rep. Hugh Carey captured
the Democratic nomination for
governor of New York last
night, and Gov. Reubin Askew
of Florida won renomination as
incumbent governors and sen-

victories.
Carey, with strong backing
from organized labor, defeated
former offtrack betting boss
Howard Samuels in the hard-
fought contest to choose a rival
for Republican Gov. Malcolm
Wilson.

President - designate N e I s o n

15 years as lieutenant governor,

year term.
In another New York contest,

will oppose veteran Republican
Sen. Jacob Javits in November.
And New York's Democrats

Law prof
questions
Nixon
pardont
By STEPHEN SELBST
A University constitutional law
expert said yesterday that Presi-
dent Ford's pardon of ex-
President Nixon "may be be-
yond the limits of the presi-
dent's constitutional. powers"
because it clears Nixon for a
period of time rather than for
specific acts committed while
in office.
Law professor Yale Kamisar
argued that the way to chal-
lenge the controversial move
would be to indict Nixon - and
make his attorneys fight the
charges, although he admitted
the plan is "not realistic."
"THEY'D probably try to
quash it on the grounds that
he's already been pardoned,
but the rebuttal would be that
the pardon was illegal," Kami-
sar said.
To Kamisar, "the objection-
able thing isn't that he was
pardoned before indictment and
conviction, though some have
questioned the validity of that,
the objectionable thing is that
he was pardoned for a period
of time." He added, "I would be
happy if there was a confession,
detailing what Nixon did."
Kamisar further contended
that, "the public may never
know whether the pardon is
justified, because there is no

After placing an eight-month
"freeze" on the women's advo-
cate post, the University admin-
istration has re-opened the po-
sition and drawn together a
search committee to recruit and
screen applicants.
Claire Jeannette, the Univer-
versity's first women's advo-
cate, resigned that post last
November for "personal rea-
sons."
DUE TO a re-organizational
overhaul in the Office of Spe-
cial Services and Programs
(OSSP) which coordinates the
University's seven advocates, it
was unclear until mid-summer
whether Jeannette would be re-
placed.
When she resigned last fall,
the official OSSP position was
that a successor would be nam-
ed by January '74.
However, the subsequent
doubts of top-level administra-
tors as to whether University
women still needed an advocate
cmused a lengthy re-evaluation
of the nosition during the OSSP

UAW VP asks for

By JEFF DAY
Doualas Fraser, vice presi-
dent of the United Atlto Workers
(UAW), spoke to University
clerical workers last night, urg-
ing them to vote UAW in the
uncomin elections which will
decide whether University em-
plrves will unionize.
"Comnanies can't be counted
on to carry out a policy in an

Fraser said. "Only by joining a

at all.
In his speech, Fraser empha-
sized both the need for a union
and UAW union experience,
pointing out that some leaders
of AFSCME got their start in
the UAW, and that some still
paid the UAW dues.
HIS strategy seemed at least
partially successful. "I was go-

WASHINGTON (P)-President
Ford's $850,000 request for
Richard Nixon during his first
10 months out of office is more
than twice as much as former
President Lyndon Johnson re-
ceived during a comparable
p e r i o d, government records
show.
And there is some question
about whether Nixon could be
granted the full amount under
existing laws.
FIGURES compiled by the
General Services Administration
(GSA) on the government's ex-
penditures for other former
presidents were obtained from
congressional sources. The Nix-
on request is up for considera-
tion by House and Senate ap-
propriations subcommittees be-
