SGC elections
The results of last week's Student Government
Council election should be ready early Monday, ac-
cording to Elections Director Alan Bercovitz. But
the Student Action Coalition announced Friday
that it will challenge the outcome. Any other
group or student who wishes to contest the elec-
tion must do so within 24 hours of the results being
certified. If the challenge is upheld a new elec-
tion would be necessary. However, one SGC of-
ficial commented yesterday that a new election
wouldn't help much unless more students voted.
Last week only 3.5 per cent of those entitled to vote
bothered to cast ballots.
A strange coincidence produced an error in last
Friday's Cinema Weekend column - we reviewed
the wrong movie. Two pictures with the title
Family Life were released in the same year, but
only one - a Polish film - was listed in our usual
sources of research. Cinema II informs us, how-
ever, that the Family Life they plan to show this
evening is an English-made picture directed by
Ken Loach. Well, as the song goes, it's a small
world after all.
Happenings .. .
... are a mixed and almost empty bag today.
Washtenaw County Community College will hold
an open house today from 1-5 p.m. for the public
to take a look at the school . . . the Residential
College lecture series will present John Evans, a
psych. grad student, speaking on "Parapsychol-
ogy: The New Personal Frontier," at 7 p.m. in
the East Quad Green Lounge . . . Hill Aud. will
rock to the sound of Beethoven's Symphony number
1 begining at 8 p.m. and performed free by the
University Symphony . . . on Monday the Univer-
sity theatre program will present "The Killing
of Sister George" at 8 p.m. in the Areana Theatre
- admission is 50 cents . . . and square dancing -
for those who have been -attending - is again
scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. in Barbour Gym.
Tough customer
A runaway kangaroo gave two of Chicago's fin-
est fits yesterday as they tried to capture the
agile beast. The cops attempted to handcuff the
animal but in doing so got a lesson in the art
of self-defense. "His punch was brutal and he
kicked us both pretty bad too," one policeman
said. "We really didn't know what to do. After
all, there aren't any general orders on the cap-
ture and care of a kangeroo." The marsupial got
away with nary a scratch.
'Book 'im
Sen. Edward Gurney (R-Fla.), who served on
the Senate Watergate panel, has lost a fight to
avoid being fingerprinted and photographed as a
result of a bribery indictment against him. He
claimed the procedure - standard for anyone
charger with a felony - would be "humiliating".
But the federal judge hearing the case did not
agree and ordered the Senator "treated like any
other defendant."
Ying for Vesco
The Costa Rican legislature is currently consid-
ering repeal of the law which has shielded million-
aire-financier Rober SVesco from extradition by
United States authorities. Vesco is wanted on
charges stemming from a $200,00 contribution to

former President Nixon's re-election in an alleged
attempt to influence an investigation by the Secur-
ities and Exchange Commission. U.S. officials
have twice tried unsuccessfully to secure Vesco's
return since he arrived in Costa Rica nearly 18
months ago. If the law is repealed, extradition
could take place.
Soviet scientists have succeeded in growing
new legs on frogs and rats and there is evidence
that restoration of human limbs could be oossible
in the future. Data from the experiments suggests
that damaged tissues, limbs, and organs in high
mammals and theoretically humans can be re-

clave groans and winces as he releases a log in the Bolt Throw,
one of the 12 competitive events. This year's conclave was
sponsored by the University's Natural Resources Club and held

special To The Daily
BOSTON - Thousands of Bos-
tonians, most of them young
people, came out yesterday to
vent passions sparked by the
busing issue at two demonstra-
tions-one in support and one
in p r o t e s t of court-ordered
school busing to promote racial
After several weeks of violent
clashes between black and white
youths in South Boston, some
of the city's tensions appeared
to be easing. School attendance
rose at the end of last week,
and both of yesterday's crowds
were orderly.
IN THE downtown area, near-
ly 7,000 marchers-most of them
white college students-walked
four miles through Latin, Orien-
tal, and white neighborhoods to
a pro-busing rally at Boston
Thedemonstrators chanted,
"Kids can't learn in a racist
school" and heard speakers
from radical groups as well as
a local parents' organization
decry the harassment of black
students and attempted school
boycott by whites.
Meanwhile, anti-busing organ-
izers held their rally at Kelly
Field, a run-down playground
in Hyde Park where the busing
issue has recently grown vio-
Yesterday's crowd, estimated
at 1500, listened quietly and ap-
plauded as Boston School Com-
mittee chairman John Kerrigan
blasted civil rights groups and
the news media for "caring
nothing about Boston" and us-
ing what he claimed was a
"double standard" in supporting
school busing.
KERRIGAN and a n o t h e r
school committee member, Paul

Ellison, drew the loudest cheers
when they attacked the Boston
Globe for its editorial supp:rt
of school busing. Kerrigan .aid
the paper should be renamed
"the Maggot Globe."
Several demonstrators sport-
ed red, white and blue "Enough
Is Enough-Boycott the Globe"
stickers on their car bumpers.
One elderly man said, "I've
been the reading the Globe for
50 years, but I cancelled 'cause
it turned nigger."
"We're proud in Boston,"
Ellison told the crowd. "We
have the first public school .sys-
tern in the country, and now
we're going to be the first school
system to defeat forced bus-
BUT NOT everyone listened.
In a Saturday picnic mood,
teenagers played touch football
at the edge of the crowd as
small children chased e a c h
other through the baseball-dia-
mond's bleachers.
The pro-busing rally drew
large numbers of onlookers but
few joined the march.
"I think everyone should just
love each other," said one mid-
dle-aged woman who asked not
to be identified. "But busing?
Why didn't they leave things
the way they were? If the par-
ents would just leave the kids
alone, they'd work it out for
BOTH CROWDS took to chant-
ing. At Kelly Park, young peo-
ple used a converted football
cheer-"Here we go, Boston,
here. we go"-as Ellison de-
clared, "We are right in Bos-
ton; we've been right all along."
The pro-busing ma rcchers
shouted, "Hey, hey, the school
committee has got to go," as
they p a s s e d the committee
building. Organizers branded
Kerrigan and other committee
members "racists."


President - designate Nelson
Rockefeller, who must pay $903,-
718 more in federal taxes, said
yesterday he gave $24,712,245 in
gifts to charitable, educational
and other tax-exempt organiza-
tions from 1957 through June
30 of this year.
Rockefeller made the disclos-
ure in a letter to Sen. Howard
Cannon, (D-Nev.) chairman of
the Committee on Rules and
Administration, and released by
the Rockefeller office here.
Rockefeller's largest gifts
were for the furtherance of the
visual arts, his chief non-polit-

lists donations

ical interest and hobby.
THE disclosure of his charit-
able gifts came a day after he
announced he will have to pay
an additional $903,718 in federal
income and gift taxes, a figure
likely to soar past the $1 million
mark when interest is included.
But as President Ford made
a campaign swing through three
states yesterday, his press sec-
retary, Ron Nessen, issued a
White House statement, saying
Ford 'still has complete faith
in Vice President - designate
Nelson Rockefeller."
In New York, before the an-
nouncement of his charitable

contributions, Rockefeller said
he is not guilty of any wrong-
doing and added: "I wrote the
piece that made the headlines."
This was a reference to the
income and gift tax.
"There's nothing wrong,
there's nothing illegal, there's
nothing immoral, and there is
no conflict of interest in any-
thing I've done or that's come
out," Rockefeller said.

Ford campaigns for
GOP congressmen

dent Ford campaigned through
three states yesterday urging
the election of Republican con-
gressmen and exhorting the
GOP faithful to press forward
to overcome unfavorable polls.
After five speeches in North
and South Carolina, Ford flew
here to plug for the re-election
of Sen. Marlow Cook and other
members of Kentucky's Repub-
lican slate.
"YOU'VE got an obligation,"
he told an airport crowd at
Greensboro, N. C., "So do I,
and we don't achieve it by sit-
ting on our hands and wringing
our hands and say 'Gee, the
polls look terrible.'

he said may be in prospect.
Referring to the polls, Ford
said, "All the experts say I
can't change the outcome." But
he declared, "It is a lot better
for me to be out here . . . than
sitting around the oval office
wringing my hands:
"I've got a WIN button. I'm
not a loser," Ford added, re-
calling that former President
Harry Truman upset the poll-
sters in 1948 by "fighting for
what he believed was right."
IN URGING Renublicans "to
maximize yolir efforts in the
next 10 days," Ford sa-id "the
stakes are very, very high."
In his prepared comments,
he urged voters to send him Re-
publican Congressmen "to
