Voter registration
For you students planning to take advantage of
the only voter registration site on campus - the
Michigan Union - perhaps a trip down to City
Hall might be in order. With March 10 the dead-
line for registration for the April elections, the
Union and all other special registration sites in the
city will only be open during spring break, March
4-10. Fortunately City Hall is open Monday-Friday
to register hopeful voters throughout the year.
Wait until dark
"The world is full of perverts, molesters and rap-
ists who are lurking and waiting to attack your
children and wives," says Barbara Collins, a De-
troit Democrat who led a successful fight in the
state legislature yesterday to keep Michigan on
standard time. The House vote was one tally shy
of the number needed to pass a bill to put the
state on Daylight Savings Time by Feb. 23. Those
who favor standard time say that daylight time
sends children .o school in the dark and causes
an increase in crime. Nevertheless, the issue will
again be raised this spring as current state law
still requires the switch to daylight time on
April 27.
Heads he wins . .
Governor Milliken laid his cards on the table
today when he stated his opposition to a proposal
to legalize gambling in the state. He criticized
Rep. Casmer Ognowski's proposed measure to open
up gambling casinos as a step "in the wrong
direction" and said he fears Michigan would be-
come "the Nevada of the Midwest." He disagreed
with Ogonowski's claim that legalized gambling
could be a shot in the arm for ;he state's sagging
economy and as an alternative to rejuvenate the
economy, Milliken has suggested raising the in-
come tax raterfrom its current level of 3.9 per
cent to 4.6 per cent. 'Heads he wins, tails we
lose.

The naked truth
Kathy Tillman is running a booming business in
Seattle, Washington, by taking advantage of sex-
ist party-goers. Her rent--doll Escort service fea-
tures six female streakers who can be hired to
stroll through parties in the nude, often creating
a stir with cocktails going astray. Male streakers
are also available but have yet to receive any
takers.
Morale buster?
Rear Admiral Harry Mahin has come out in
defense of the bust enlargements and face lifts
for wives of military men. The sailor claims these
operations give a boost to the women's morale
and are a valuable free service of military hos-
pitals. He blasted the charge by Rep. Les Aspin
(D-Wis.) that tax payers are footing the bills for

the surgery and insists the surgeons only sched-
uled the operations when their services weren't
needed for medically required surgery. The navy
is only keeping abreast of the times.

Fleming
a leading
UCali.
i~ i
candiate
By DAVID BURHENN
A source close to the Univer-
sity of California (U-C) regents
yesterday confirmed reports
that University President Rob-
ben Fleming is a leading can-
didate for the presidency of the
nine campus U-C system.
However, the source indicated
that the regents would more
likely choose "someone from
within the University system
who is ten years younger than
Fleming."
THE SOURCE said that Flem-
ing was "the leading outside
candidate" in a field of three
or four men, but that Univer-
sity of Utah President David
Gardener and U-C Provost Da-
vid Saxon appeared to be
stronger contenders.
Gardener has been connected
with the California schools in
the past, and is several years

CDRS FUND PLAN:
HRP, Dems may join

By DAVID WHITING
A unique coalition appears
in the offing between the Hu-
man Rights Party (HRP) and
city Democrats to submit a
joint proposal to the Office of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment (HUD) for the use of a
$2.5 million federal grant.
The grant is in the form of
Community Development Reve-
nue Sharing (CDRS) funds aim-
ed at aiding low and moderate
income residents, according to
HUD.
A CONTROVERSIAL task
force's recommended alloca-
tions for CDRS are expected to
pass the Republican - domi-
nated City Council Monday
night in a tn-partisanDsplit,
causing the HRP and Demo-
crats to submit an alternative
minority - backed proposal to
HUD.
The task force, called the
SDRS Citizen's Committee,
was appointed last fall by Re-
publican Mayor James Steph-
enson to advise Council as to
how the $2.5 million grant to
the city should be spent. A for-
mer Republican councilman,
William Colburn, was appoint-
ed chairman of the committee.
The committee's recommen-
dations have come under fire
from HRP, Democrats, local
service organizations, and mem-
bers of the task force itself, for
not being in the spirit of SDRS.
COUNCIL Democrats an-
nounced intentions of submitting
their own CDRS recommenda-
tions at a press conference yes-

terday and indicated hopes that
other council members would
support them.
Last night IRP extended a
formal invitation to council
Democrats for a meeting to
discuss a bi-partisan CDRS pro-
posal.
Democrats and HRP set Sun-
day afternoon as the tentative
date for the meeting.
HOWEVER, the meeting is

likely to be a heated debate
since the Democrats and HRP
hope to agree on a single pro-
posal yet both parties have
drawn up separate CDRS plans,
each claiming their own as su-
perior.
Carol Jones (D-Second Ward)
chided HRP last night saying,
"Our proposal is more sophis-
ticated and sensible than
HRP's."
In response, David Goodman,

forces
HRP City Council hopeful, coun-
tered, "That's hogwash," and
blasted the Democrats' plan
saying, "The Democrats really
butchered funding for low and
moderate income housing . .
they totally ignore the city's
housing needs which are a ma-
jor part of the CDRS legisla-
tion."

W A S II I N G T 0 N,
(Reuter) - Unemployment
soared to a postwar record
of 8.2 per cent in the U.S.
in January, the Labor De-
partment reported yester-
day.
Nearly one million Amer-
icans were added to the
jobless total during the
month bringing the num-
ber unemployed to about
7,500,000. In December the
unemployment rate was 7.2
per cent with the number
of people out of work to-
talling slightly over 6,500,-
000.
SENATOR Henry Jackson
(D-Wash.) who only Thursday
announced his candidacy for
the Democratic Presidential
nomination in 1976, said the 8.2
unemlovment rate meant that
the United States "could be
headed for 10 per cent before
long."
Senator Edward Kennedy (D-
Mass.) described the increase
in unemployment as "anpal-
line" and said it was "shock-
ing" new evidence of the total
bankruptcy of the Ford Admin-
istration's economic policy."
The Labor Department re-
ported the jobless rate was the
hiehest in 34 years - since
1941 - when unemployment
averaged 9.9 per cent for the
year. There are no monthly fi-
ures for unemployment prior to
1948.
JANUARY'S unemployment
rate was the highest postwar
level, outpacing the previous
record of 7.9 per cent reached
in October, 1949, by three-
tenths of one percent..
The one percentage point
jump in unemployment last
month was the biggest one
nonth advance since a one per-
centage point gain between No-
vember and December of 1973.
It is expected to raise sharp
otcries from the Democratic-
ally controlled Congress which
is working urgently on a tax re-
bate package totalling' about
$20 billion for both individuals
and corporations.
T H E T A X relief pack-
age which is emerging from the
influential tax - writing House
Ways and Means Committee is
about $4 billion more than that
proposed by President Ford.
The shock rise was attributed
by the Labor Department to in-
creased lay-offs during the
month with the increases spread
throughout most industries.
Blue collar workers were
among the hardest hit, it said,
with their jobless rate rising to
11 per cent from 9.3 per cent
in December.
THE DEPARTMENT
also reported that in January
about 3,800,000 people were on
reduced work schedules or were
holding part-time jobs because

Ex-Vietnamese prisoner hits
two-year peace with honor'

Burns
"
Will ase
credit
WASHINGTON AP) - Chair-
man Arthur Burns of the Fed-
eral Reserve Board said yester-
day that while the board will
ease credit to encourage recov-
ery from the recession "we
have no intention of permitting
an explosion in money and cre-
dit. "
Burns, testifying before the
congressional Joint Economic
Committee, disagreed with
senators who want the Feder-
al Reserve to'expand the mone-
tary supply and ease credit
significantly.
"YOU SHOULD realize the
Federal Reserve no longer has
good options open to it," Burns
said.
He said the board can follow
its present generally moderate
course or "join the inflation-
ists."
Increasing the money to a
large extent would "send long-
term interest rates soaring, un-
leash a new wave of inflation
and wreck all prospects of re-
covery in this country," Burns
said.
"SUCH A reckless course of
action might hold short-term
interests rates down for a time,
but it would, before long, plunge

"More people are being killed
in Southeast Asia every day
than anywhere else in the
world," Jean-Pierre Devris told
members of the Campus Ecu-
menical Council last night.
Devris, a French teacher who
was imprisoned and tortured by
the Thieu government, claimed
that the Vietnamese people's
ability to fight back against for-
eign influence "has given the
people of the third world coun-
tries a lot to think about."
DEVRIS BELIEVES the third
world nations should form a sol-
idarity movement to protect
themselves against American
oppression.
Devris had harsh word: for
the two years of "peace with
honor" imposed by the Paris

Peace Agreement. According to
Devris 100,000deaths have en-
suied during that period, and
U.S. taxpayers have shelled out
$8 billion in aid.
Devris assailed South Vietna-
mese President Nguyen Van
Thieu's request for an additional
half billion dollars in aid which
would be sent in the form of
munitions. "More Vietnamese
will be killed and more of my
friends jailed," he charged.
DEVRIS depicted the present
situation in Vietnam as tense
due to an increase in the level
of fighting. He cited aircraft
carriers from the U.S. 7th Fleet
sailing to the Vietnamese coast
last month and U.S. "civilian"
pilots flying over Cambodia as
evidence of the U.S. govern-

ment's potential move to risk
reinvolvement in S o u t h e a s t
As ia.
Devris called on concerned
-Americans to stop the war in
Vietnam and Cambodia. He be-
lieves the newly elected Con-
gress members, who are more
liberal and antiwar, will rebuff
President Ford's request for
additional aid.
Davris urged Americans to
exert pressure on their repre-
sentatives to oppose involve-
ment.
COMMENTING on the torture
he witnessed and underwent
Devris concluded on a grim
note, "These tortures are going
on right now, will occur tomor-
row, and will continue in the
future."

Center focuses on
informal learning
By TOM PRESTON
A local alternative educational center which focuses on infor-
mality and high interaction between adults and children is nearing
accreditation as an elementary school.
Annie Murphy, coordinator of the Children's Community Cen-
ter (CCC), describes its unique form of day care and pre-school
education, "We try to give them (children) as much freedom
as possible, provided that they show responsibility."
THE CHILDREN meet at 10 every morning in the small
house on N. Seventh Street to decide on the day's schedule and
the rules by which the center runs.
"The kids make most of the rules, except for dishwashing and
clean-up, or anything else that's really essential. We don't want
to push them into any special lifestyle; we just try to get them
to be relatively self-sufficient," explained Murphy.
The parents of children are integral to CCC's operation. Since

i~g FBy TIM SCHICK-
The First W a r d Democratic primary,
slated for February 17, heated up yester-
day as Robert Elton's and Elizabeth Tay-

The candidates are focusing on widely
different issues in their campaigns. While
Elton sees planning and urban development
as the major issues, Taylor is instead cam-
paigning on the need for cooperation be-":
tween governmental agencies while stress-
