City traffic
Traffic problems in the city may not have an
end in sight, but the solutions do. That's the latest
word from Traffic Engineer Thomas Urbanik, who
spoke Monday night to a city council work session
that discussed a wide range of problems under
the Streets, Traffic and Parking Department. Ur-
banik said once traffic flow improvement methods
such as removing parking from streets and com-
puterized signals are made, little else can be
done under the city's policy against new street
construction. He added that a new $400,000 com-
puterized signal system will be completely installed
within several months. "We're moving a lot of
cars around," said Urbanik. "In terms of moving
traffic, we have the most efficient method there
is, an actuated method."

D.C.'s Bible
The Green Book is out - and so is Richard Nix-
on. But it was a close call for the authors of the
1975 edition of "The Social List of Washington,
D.C.", a green-covered cloth book considered by
some to be the last word of who's "acceptable"
at the nation's capital. Traditionally dropped from
the book is anyone newly divorced, separated, mov-
ed from the capital or the subject of unpleasant
notoriety. And the book's publisher, Carolyn Shaw,
insinuated that the production of this year's social
Bible was something of a hassle. The change in
administrations caused a wild scramble and an
unprecedented month's delay in publication. Nel-
son Rockefeller, half in and half out of the vice-
presidency, is half in and half out of the book. The
name of Jerald terHorst was rushed to the print-
ers as presidential press secretary, then plucked
out when he resigned. What was supposed to be a
final list of White House staffers was sent to Shaw
the day the Green Book went to press - one
month late.
Yankee go home
Americans have been noticing the low cost of
Canada's health care - and Canadians have been
noticing our interest. The Ontario Hospital Asso-
ciation has urged the Ontario government to im-
pose a surcharge on non-Canadians - specifically
us - who use province hospitals. The resolution,
adopted Monday, is designed to discourage Amer-
icans seeking to escape the high cost of health
care in the U. S. from using Canadian facilities.

On the outside...
What a great afternoon to be outside. As dryer
and warmer air moves in, the showers will end
this morning. Skies will become partly sunny by
afternoon and will be fair at night. Afternoon

highs will reach balmy 70-75, with lows at night
falling to a pleasant 50-55. The chance of rain
will fall to 10 per cent by afternoon and remain
at 10 per cent at night.

In his re-election campaign,
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) has billed himself
as the legislator who marches
to a different drummer-a mu-

erick's tune.

BULLARD'S performance on
the House floor and activities
outside the hallowed halls of
the Lansing capitol building
have become the only real is-
sues in the November 5 elec-
tion for state representative
from the 53rd district.
Running in a district tailor-
made for a liberal Democrat,
Weaver and Alexander face a
difficult challenge in trying to

unseat the young attorney.
The candidates differ on a
number of policy matters, but
these have taken a back seat
to harsh attacks aimed squarely
at the incumbent's unorthodox
style and supposed failure to
act as a responsible advocate
for his constituents.

Burns
Security
not to
be cut
By JEFF DAY
Security Director Frederick
Davids told the influential Uni-
versity Council last night that
he was not phasing out Burns
Security Guard activities, de-
spite councilbrecommendations
that Burns be replaced by a
University security network.
Instead, Davids told the Coun-
cil that he had reduced the'
amount of protection purchased
from the city police department
and used the savings to help es-
tablish an independent campus
security force.
But Davids, former director
of the State Police told the
council that police protection for
the campus had not declined.
"Quite frankly," he told the
group, "I was told by the police
chief that we hadn't been get-
ting our money's worth from the
city. Well, we are now."
The council is composed of
administration, faculty and stu-
dent representatives who re-
commendspolicy for the Board
of Regents.
DAVIDS said he recommend-
ed staying with a supplemen-
tary hired guard system, be-
cause it was cheaper than train-
ing full police agents to do sim-
ple guard duty.
But he also said that the 10
man security force that he is
establishing will provide addi-
tional personal security on cam-
pus and help to alert police to
serious criminal matters.
Davids advocated the event-
ual establishment of an armed
campus force with full police
powers, saying, "I have no
more concern about a police-
man carrying a gun, than I
have about a lawyer carrying.
a lawbook. There are simply
situations where we need our
own police."
"This University has been
lucky up 'til now," he said.
"We've had assaults and we've
had armed robberies. We're
just lucky no one's pulled the
trigger."

Operated,
on for
phlebitis
By AP and Reuter
LONG BEACH, Calif. -
Former President Richard
Nixon was in critical condi-
tion last night after going
into shock for three hours
following surgery for phle-
bitis.
"I know the doctors are
worried," said a source
close to the situation when
asked about Nixon's chan-
ces of survival.
NIXON IS under the care of
specially trained nurses.
President Ford said he was
praying for Nixon'sdrecovery,
and the former president's wife
and two daughters were stay-
ing near Nixon's bedside.
Dr. Eldon Hickman, who per-
formed Nixon's surgery which
had been described as success-
ful during the day, planned to
stay with Nixon through the
night.
THE 61-year-old former presi-
dent, driven from office by the
Watergate scandal, had gone
into shock for more than three
hours after his dawn operation,
his personal physician, Dr. John
Lungren said. -
The shocks - a state of pro-
found depression of the vital
processes usually brought on
by reduced blood volume or
pressure - was apparently
caused by the use of blood-thin-
ning anti-coagulants, the doctor
said.
First reports from the operat-
ing room had Nixon doing well.
He underwent an hour-long op-
eration to block off a major
upper thigh vein to prevent a
large blood clot passing to his
heart or lung.
DOCTORS SAID the clot
threatened his life but they de-
layed operating for eight hours
until first light yesterday be-
cause Nixon was too weak and
exhausted.
A spokesperson at L o n g
Beach Memorial Hospital said
that Nixon went into shock at
12:45 p.m. Pacific Time and
counter-shock measures were
administered for three hours.
The cause of the shocks was
bleeding in the abdominal wall,
the spokesperson said.

SPEAKS IN HOME TOWN:

Ford cuts Sawhill from
Energy Administration

By AP and Reuter
GRAND RAPIDS (Reuter)
-President Ford, receiving a
hero's welcome while campaign-
ing in his home town, said last
night he received encouraging
reports of progress in foreign
policy and negotiations to avoid
a national coal strike.
The President, at a recep-
tion for Republican party work-
ers in Grand Rapids, said he
spoke recently with Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, who is
on an around the world trip.
"WE FEEL that we are mak-
ing some headway . . . I am
confident that we are going to
make continued progress to-
wards peace," he said. Later,
during a meeting with local
trade union leaders' President
Ford said he had received an
encouraging report on progress
towards avoiding a national coal
strike which could cripple the
economy.
He said he spoke earlier with

He flew home to campaign for
local Republican candidates in
next Tuesday's elections.
Paul Goebel, the Republican
candidate for the House of Rep-
resentative seat Ford held for
25 years, said he thought the
President's appearance would
help him win what many think
will be a close race.
Ford, speaking in downtown
Grand Rapids repeated his con-
tention that election of a "veto-

proof" Democratic Congress
would upset the system of
checks and balances in the gov-
ernment.
"IF THAT happens," the
President warned, "buckle your
seatbelts because the Demo-
crats' ideas of checks and bal-
ances is different from ours.
They write the checks even
though there is no balance."
Democratic Congress of the

past 40 years contributed to
inflation or did nothing to stop
it, Ford said, sounding the
theme he has used throughout
his campaign trips.
Earlier yesterday, Ford sig-
nalled a get-tough attitude to
hold down oil imports in a
Washington news conference. He
said he "will be open to sug-
gestions" for revisingthis anti-
inflation program if the econ-
omy continues to falter.

Clericals vote on unionization

WASHINGTON (P) - President Ford an-
nounced yesterday he is dropping Federal
Energy Administrator John Sawhill, an
outspoken advocate of energy conservation,
at the request -of Interior Secretary Rogers
Morton.
Ford said there were no "major policy
differences" involved - just "some differ-
ences in approach or technique."
BUT A spokesman for Friends of the
Earth, a citizen environment group, called

secretary of the Air Force and deputy
director of the National Aeronautics and
Space Agency, to head the new Energy Re-
search and Development Agency.
AND HE named former astronaut Bill
Anders, now a member of the Atomic Ener-
gy Commission, to become chairman of
the new Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
With the AEC being split into the two
new groups, Ford said the present AEC

This week's slow but steady trek of Uni-
versity clericals to campus polling stations
marks the last leg of a volatile year-long
drive for unionization.
The clericals are facing two ballot op-
tions in this second unionization election in
a month - United Auto Workers (UAW),
or no union at all. Union officials claim
that a pro-union vote is virtually certain.

None of the three received a majority of
the vote, setting the stage for this month's
run-off. Nevertheless, UAW led the vote
count with 1,013 votes, just 198 tallies shy of
the 50 per cent plus figure needed to win
the election outright. 734 clericals chose
no union, while AFSCME finished a poor
third with 526 votes.

AFTER weeks of heated debate, a ma-

However, a splinter group could not ac-
