Liquor diough t?
Two bars in East Lansing-Dooley's and Alle-ey
-may be forced to close their doors and empty
their kegs as a result of alleged overcrowding
violations. The night spots will be called out on
the carpet next week in district court and, if found
guilty, they could lose their liquor licenses. Both
Dooley's, which has a newly-opened branch in
Ann Arbor; and Alle-ey were charged with accom-
modating as many as 200 persons over their official
capacity. The bars' liquor licenses expire in April
and before they are renewed, the. East Lansing
City Council, which has recently kicked off a cam-
paign against code violations, must 'make a
recommendation to the State Liquor Control Com-
Scholarship program
Despite the University's bleak economic fore-
casts, at least one program appears to be forging
ahead full steam. The LSA Scholarship Committee
is presently accepting applications from students
who are financially unable to keep pace with the
rising costs of education. Scholarship forms are
available in 1220 Angell Hall for the 1975-76 aca-
demic year. All scholarships are based on need.
Students applying must have completed one term
in LSA and have a GPA of 3.0. The deadline is
Feb. 24.
Dial-a-Ride expands
The city's innovative Dial-a-Ride transportation
system will take one more step next week towards
full seven day a week door-to-door service. The
Ann Arbor Transportation Authority has announced
that starting Monday, the north sector of the city,
including the area now serviced by the Pontiac
Heights bus, will be provided with full daytime
Dial-a-Ride service. Service will also be available
to the hospitals and the University campus from
the north sector.
Teachers. sit tight
Although the dust is far from settling, reinstated
union teachers in the Crestwood district will stay in
their classroo'ms for at least another six weeks
while the Michigan Supreme Court considers the
legality of their strike-related dismissals. The high
court yesterday rejected a school board motion to
grant a stay that would have nullified the re-
instatement of the 187 teachers until a final decision
in the case is reached.

The body of a Roman Catholic Bishop was dis-

covered in Paris' redlight district last Friday after
he apparently died of a heart attack. The Roman
Catholic Church has subsequently started a full
scale inquiry into the matter following press com-
mentaries. Although the 57-year-old Bishop was
found in a hotel used strictly by prostitutes, the
church has staunchly maintained that he was not
engaged in activities incompatible with his voca-

The University will 1 i k e 1 y
boost rates for next year, ac-
cording to Vice President for
Student Services Henry John-
Johnson, who will make the
final recommendation on hous-
ing rates to the Board of Re-
gents next month, declined to
predict how large the increase
would be, but Housing Director
John Feldkamp projects a hike
of about $40 per year, or three
per cent.
UNDER THIS proposal, double
room rates would be increased
from $1401.75 per year to about
The Housing Unit Committee,
which consists of student and






faculty members, will vote to-
day on several proposed rate
changes. However, Feldkamp,
who is chairman of the commit-
tee, says he is confident that
his own proposal will be ap-
proved by the Regents'
Nevertheless, the Housing
Committee will also hear re-
commendations from Claude
Orr, associate housing director,
who is asking for a 3.87 per cent
increase, and the Rate Study
Committee, whose members ad-
vocate a 1.25 per cent decrease.
THE RATE Study Committee,
which is composed primarily of
students, concludes that the
Housing office can reduce rates
for a double room in 1975-76 by
Committee member Richard

Munson contends that the rates
can be decreased by cutting
back on administrative and
maintenance costs.
Munson argues that enough
funds have been spent in the
past few years on dorm reno-
vations so that large sums of
money no longer need to be de-
voted to improvements.
HE CONTENDS that the Uni-
versity's $4.7 million in housing
reserve funds should be sub-
stantially decreased.
Specifically, the report advo-
-Stricter management to re-
duce the costs of building main-
tenance, building repairs, and
repairs, and special services by
5 per cent-savings of $4.30 per

-A 10 per cent reduction in
the projected 1975-76 budget for
administrative costs-savings of
$12.10 per student.
-The addition of no more
money to certain dorm reserve
funds this year.
-No subsidies for a projected
'U' housing project to come out
of General Student Resident Re-
serves, which is intended to deal
with dorm emergencies.
Feldkamp says he objects to
the Rate Study Committee's re-
port because it would aid next
year's students by lowering the
rates without providing more
services to students in follow-
ing years.
"The big problem that I have
with the Rate Study report is
that next year's students get

all the benefits," Feldkamp said.
THE HOUSING director said
he also objects to the report's
recommendation that the hous-
ing reserve funds be decreased
"As a matter of principle, I
can't accept that," he says.
Ron Beck, representative of
family housing on the Housing
Unit Committee, says that so
far, the "committee has been
leaning towards the student re-
port," which advocates the one
per cent decrease.
However, Rate Study Commit-
tee members admit that Feld-
kamp's suggested proposed in-
crease will likely be given final
approval. "Feldkamp and John-
son are going to kill it( the
Rate Study report). They don't
like it," said Munson.

Former Central Intelli-
gence Agency (CIA) direc-
tor Richard Helms told the
Senate Foreign Relations
C o m m i t t e e yester-
day during a closed - door
session that, to his knowl-
edge, allegations of domes-
tic CIA spying were false.
Sen. Gale McGee (D.Wyo.),
a commission member, re-
ported y e s t e r d a y

aware of the infiltration of
CIA agents into dissident
groups in the United
HELMS' testimony followed
the disclosure by CIA director
William Colby that, between
1967 and 1974, the CIA inserted
or recruited about 22 agents into
American radical groups.
HOWEVER, last week Helms,
who was CIA director from
1966 until becoming Ambassa-
dor to Iran in 1973, acknowl-
edged that in the late 1960's his
agency spied on dissident and
anti-war groups, largely at the
behest of former presidents
Lyndon Johnson and Richard
This acknowledgement ap-
parently contradicted his 1973
testimony to the foreign rela-
tions committee that he did
not recall any such involvement
in domestic spying.

have said they feel Helms lied
to them in 1973.

cluding a revolutionary series
of leadership battles in which

Patman, 81, was defeated by
Rep. Henry Reuss of Wiscon-

tributed his defeat in part to
big banks, with whom Patman
often squabbled. The, vote was
152-117 for Reuss.
PATMAN stopped short of
saying big bankers would be
gleeful over Reuss' election.
"I'll say it this way: they'll be
happy they won't have me."

~CIAtruth won'
come out'-Hersh
Seymour Hersh, the crack investigative reporter of the
F New York Times who broke the My Lai and CIA domestic
spying stories, declared last night that he does not believe
that "the whole story on the CIA will ever come out."
Addressing a sizeable audience of several hundred in the
Rackham Building lecture hall, Hersh remarked on the large
volume of "dossiers" on American citizens which the CIA
has kept secret, saying "I understand it's enough to blow
the agency out."
HERSH, 37, has broken virtually every major governmen-
tal scandal story in the last five years except Watergate. He
has an impressive string of journalism awards, including the
Pulitzer Prize.
During his address at the Rackham Building, Hersh was
low-key, conversational, and gently cynical. He displayed
