Ten Cents

Time out
If you didn't do it last night, it's time to set the
clocks back an hour. The people who brought you
daylight savings decreed that the nation would
return to standard time at 2 a.m. this morning.
Readers in Indiana, Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico,
the Virgin Islands and American Samoa needn't
make the change-according to the people in Wash-
ington, they're already normal.
Where there's smoke
Bad news for smokers. R. J. Reynolds, the na-
tion's largest tobacco manufacturer, has announced
its second wholesale price increase on cigarettes
this year. The increase of a penny a pack is sched-
uled to go into effect tomorrow, with no word
as to what the effect might be on retail prices.
Spaced out
One small step for man, and another milestone
for science. Researchers at the Kitt Peak Na-
tional Radio Astronomy Observatory have dis-
covered that the Milky Way is made of good old
grain alcohol. The discovery was the result of
four years work by 12 otherwise normal research-
ers and marked the discovery of only the thirty-
first molecule existent in space. The researchers
had no word as to how big a wallop the Milky
Way might pack.

Free speech
A District Court Judge in San Francisco has
denied a bid by owners of nude encounter parlors
to stay open. The owners, who run parlors in which
men drop in to "converse" with nude females,
claimed that police attempts to close them down
were restricting their rights to free speech. So
much for the Constitution.
Honor among thieves
Retired gangster Mickey Cohen says he knows
where Patty Hearst was last week, and would have
nabbed her, but didn't want to be responsible for
sending the kidnaped heiress-turned-revolutionary
up the river. "When I heard she would do 20 or
30 years, that's when I begged off," the ex-con
said. "I don't bring nobody in to do time."
Milking the public

The three big dairy cooperatives which had
trouble giving their political money away earlier
this year have donated $90,105 to candidates and
political committees since September. Their re-
ports show they are now giving at a brisker pace
than they were earlier this year, at the height of
public disclosures over the milk-fund affair. Dur-
ing that time a dozen candidates returned dairy do-
nations, and others sent word they would not
accept money if offered. Although their giving has
picked up in the most recent period, it still is less
than half what they gave during roughly the same
period in the 1972 elections, when they gave $241,-

MICHIGAN TAILBACK Gordie Bell hurdles the Minnesota defensive line yesterday to score from two yards out in the second
quarter. Bell gained 134 yards in the game, and with co-first string tailback Rob Lytle (who gained 158), plpyed a major part in
the offensive explosion that embarrassed the Gophers. It was the first time since the Navy game that the Mrize and Blue had
put together both solid offensive (620 total yards, 521 rushing) and defensive (Minnesota got only 158 yards) efforts.

sophomore, retained his team

with the offense," said Schem-
bechler. After surrendering 20
points for the first time in three

defenders kept the impotent
Gophers far from the goal line,
holding them to only 149 total
yards and seven first downs.
The Michigan defense was

beef producers slit the throats
or shot 636 calves and buried
them in trenches near Curtis,
Wis. They said the action was
to dramatize the effects of high
feed prices which cause farm-
ers to lose money in fattening
cattle for market.
Richard We rt zb erg e r, a

company, said workers were
sent yesterday after they slaugh-
tered all the calves that had
arrived at the plant by 10 a.m.

Ford achieves

little success

i n congressional election Iour

President Ford has apparently
failed to achieve any dramatic
successes in his energetic cam-
paign swings across the coun-
try designed to prevent a Re-
publican disaster in the con-
gressional elections next month.
Ford made two speeches
Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa,
to help Republican candidates
there, but one party spokes-
person said afterward, "He's
been a general help but not a
tremendous one."
"WE'RE FEELING good that
the president was here," he
added, "But I don't know wheth-
er we're going to win our con-
gressional seats or not."

The president received an
overwhelmingly friendly wel-
come except from protesters of
his pardon of former President
Richard Nixon, critics of the
Central Intelligence Agency and
one forlorn man carrying a sign
saying, "Pardon me, I'm just a
bankrupt cattleman."
On Tuesday, when President
Ford went to Oklahoma City,
only 75 people bought tickets
for a $500-a-plate breakfast and
several apparently failed to turn
OKLAHOMA R e p u b I i c a n
Chairman Clarence W a r n e r
blamed the poor attendance on
the Nixon pardon, Ford's pro-
posal of a five per cent limited

income tax increase and low
cattle prices.
In Washington, sceptical Re-
publican strategists openly doubt
whether the sitting president
ever makes a substantial impact
on elections when the presidency
itself is not at stake.
In the case of Ford, one top
strategist raised doubts about
his personal effectiveness after
his controversial pardon of
Nixon-"That goddam pardon,
as I always call it," he said.
"WHAT WE ARE seeing on
the stump is the same old Jerry
Ford who we have known for
so many years-flat and dull,"
he added.
The president, who usually

reads from a prepared text, en-
dorses local Republican can-
didates, urges his listeners to
preserve the two-party system
by voting Republican and
blames the Democrats for orig-
inating inflation and damaging
his foreign policy.
He frequently loses his place
in the text and at one dinner in
Pinehurst, North Carolina, he
fluffed two of the three jokes
in the text.

Detroit attorney recalls stint
as a Watergate prosecutor

On July 11, Detroit attorney
William Merrill, acting as chief
prosecutor in the Watergate
"plumbers" trial, warned the
jury in his closing arguments
that the Ellsberg break-in con-
stituted "the beginnings of a
police state."
For Merrill, it was the cul-
mination of more than a year
of investigation. He had chosen
to leave a job with a Detroit
law firm to take part in "some-
thing of major significance, in

dealings that were eventually
going to lead to the impeach-
ment of the president."
NOW, FOUR months later,
Merrill is installed in an office
on the twenty-seventh floor of
the City National Bank Building
in Detroit, a new partner in
the firm of Dykema, Gossett,
Spencer, Goodnow and Trigg.
He says he is content to return
"to the real world and to the
ordinary life of a lawyer."
But he looks back proudly on

15 months spent exclusively on
preparing the Ellsberg break-in
case. "We were so well pre-
pared," Merrill recalls, that by
the time of the trial "I had
every confidence in what the
jury's verdict would be."
"We were trying to concen-
trate on just the fact of a
break-in," he explains. The
prosecution strove to stay clear
of the moral issues of the case,
he says, to avoid giving the
defendants a chance to justify
their actions to the jury.
the jury that John Ehrlichman
was guilty on two counts. First,
he had to show that Ehrlichman
had known about plans for a
psychological profile of Daniel
Ellsberg. In addition, the prose-
cution had to prove that the
defendant, in authorizing a "co-
vert operation," had been aware
he was authorizing an unlawful
entry into psychiatrist Eugene
Fielding's office.
On the prosecution's side
were two key witnesses, Egil
Krogh and David Young.
According to Merrill, both

The status of women in education at the University has a
brighter future if recommendations formulated by the Committee
to Study the Status of Women in Graduate Education and Later
Careers are implemented by the administration.
And after seven months of deliberation, the University's wheels
are finally beginning to roll in that direction.
