Bageris busted
Bob Bageris, the controversial Detroit rock pro-
moter who operates Bamboo Productions, has been
arrested and charged with possession and intent
to deliver 67.7 grams of cocaine. Police, acting on
an informant's tip, seized Bageris and his alleged
stash in a Thursday night raid on his Southfield
apartment. He has been released on $25,000 bond
to await an Oct. 11 pre-trial examination. It is not
Bageris' first legal problem: his Detroit promoting
business was once plagued by concert hall code
violations and expensive lawsuits from other pro-
moters. When Bamboo productions sponsored Bob
Dylan's concert at Crisler Arena last February,
The Daily disclosed that Bageris and other Bamboo
officials were behind amassive ticket-scalping
racket, in violation of Dylan's contract and state
laws. Bageris denied the story.
Meet your President
Amid massive security arrangements, President
Ford will speak to the opening session of the
ninth World Energy Conference at Cobo Auditorium
in Detroit tomorrow. At the five-day conference,
3700 delegates from 69 nations plan to draw a
tentative blueprint for the earth's fuel needs over
the next 30 years. Scores of police began patrolling
the auditorium area yesterday as delegates arrived
to hear Ford, Treasury Secretary William Simon,
and dozens of other officials from around the
world. A coalition of Ann Arbor radical groups
say they will sponsor a rally outside Cobo at 10
a.m. tomorrow to protest Ford's pardon of Richard
Labor news
Organizers from the United Auto Workers (UAW)
and the American Federation of State, County and
Municipal Employes (AFSCME) are asking the
University's 3200 clerical workers to choose be-
tween the two unions tomorrow, the final day of
clericals' voting. The state-sponsored election also
allows workers the choice of voting for "no union,"
but both sides are urging that "any union is better
than no union at all. The polls are at the League
on the main floor. Meanwhile, in another labor
issue, a state mediator has been asked to Inter-
cere in stalled contract talks between the Univer-
sity and its hospital's interns. The interns' union
says it has been offered an unsatisfactory 3.5 per
cent wage hike.

Pentagon keeps quiet on deserters

WASHINGTON (P) - Fugitive military de-
serters will not be tracked down immediately
with information they provide in telephone in-
quiries about President Ford's amnesty program,
a Pentagon spokesperson said yesterday.
Under a new policy set by 'Defense Secretary
James Scheslinger, the personal information will
be "clos'ely held" and not passed on to the FBI
or other authorities during the clemency eligibil-
ity period - or until Jan. 31, 1975.
BUT THERE was no indication whether the
information might be used to hunt deserters who
remain at large after that date.
According to the Pentagon spokesperson, a
total of 760 calls inquiring about the clemency
regulations had been received by the armed ser-
vices since Ford announced the program Monday.

The first four Vietnam-era deserters to turn
themselves in under the program were dis-
charged Friday night at Ft. Benjamin Harrison,
Ind., after signing a statement reaffirming their
allegiance and pledging to complete terms of
alternate service.
AUTHORITIES AT the Indiana base said yes-
terday that 18 other deserters who have surren-
dered were being processed there.
Deserters telephoning information numbers set
up by the various armed forces usually are re-
quested to give their name, service number and
address before they are advised about their
eligibility for the amnesty program. -
This had led to concern that the personal in-
formation might be used by authorities to find
and arrest them before they decide whether

to turn themselves in voluntarily.
"Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger has
decided that information obtained from military
absentees inquiring about the President's pro-
gram will be closely held, by the military de-
partment concerned and will not be used during
the eligibility period set forth in proclamation No.
4313 against either.the absentee inquiring or other
eligible absentees to effect an apprehension for
unauthorizd absence.
"To do otherwise would not be in the spirit of
the President's program," the statement said.
. The Pentagon said the four Army deserters
discharged had arrived on Thursday at Ft. Ben-
jamin Harrison. Their names were not released.
After a review of records and additional in-
formation provided by the men, the- spokesper-

son said, the four men were given terms of alter-
nate service of 12, 20, 21 and 24 months. The two-
year term is the maximum required under the
clemency program.
THE MEN RECEIVED undesirable discharges,
which are to be changed to clemency discharges
after they have satisfactorily completed their
terms of alternate service.
However, the undesirable discharge removes
the men from military control, and there is no
further legal requirement that they perform the
alternate service.
Telephone numbers for inquiries about' the
clemency- program as it affects military desert-
ers are: Army 317-542-3417; Navy 202-694-2057 or
202-694-1936; Marine Corps 202-694-8526; Air Force
512-652-4154; Coast Guard 202-426-1830.

PASADENA (AP) - Television
cameras aboard the Mariner 10
spacecraft began clicking a
series of "prime time" pictures
of Mercury yesterday as the
metallic probe initiated its sec-
ond encounter with the tiny,
cold-looking planet.
The first of the 330 detailed
photographs were taken from
about 55,000 miles away, but
scientists at the Jet Propulsion
Laboratory (JPL) said they
were not of sufficient quality
to warrant immediate reaction.
They expected better quality
pictures as the probe moved
closer to Mercury's previously-
unexplored south polar region.'
Scientists hoped the pictures
would provide a better under-
standing of how the tiny planet
formed into a sphere with a
heavy iron core covered by a
thin rocky crust.

Dennis Franks, Michigan's starting center, could afford to
laugh while he said this. 91,203 people in the Stadium yesterday
saw his team wear down and eventually rout a huge herd of
Colorado Buffaloes, 31-0.

the final score shows. For the first 30 minutes, the Michigan

Ford warns UN of
harsh food politics
AP News Analysis
President Ford's debut at the United Nations has reminded
the world organization it can expect long embroilment in the
harsh and complicated politics of food, where search for accord
may be more important than the quest for agreement on nuclear
The President linked food to oil in his appeal last Wednesday
for concord, as well he might. A potentially explosive force lurks
behind the developing food picture, especially as it is compli-
cated by energy shortages and regional conflicts.
WHEN DELEGATES gather Nov. 5 in Rome for a world food
conference under United Nations auspices, they'll have some
stark food statistics to chew over, collected by their preparatory

MEMBERSHIP in the Presi-

minimum donation of $10,000,
during their lifetime. According
to member Anneke Overseth,
the club's 1,432 members have
contributed over $39 million to
the University.
The majority of the visiting
alumni expressed feelings of
deep obligation to the Univer-
sity. As William McClintock
says, "We got a lot out of the
University. It's only fair to
give something back."
The club does not influence
any University p o l i c y and
serves only a fund raising func-
tion. Members paid for the
weekend's activities, down to
the last cocktail and fancy hors
d'oeuvre consumed at Friday
night's reception.
Although the alumni repre-
sented graduating classes that
dated back to 1902, few wished
for a retuirn to the good old
