State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) and 27
other State Representatives have proposed a new
voter registration which would allow voters to reg-
ister by simply mailing a postcard. Qualified per-
sons would be allowed to register to vote by filling
in a postage paid postcard form and mailing the
signed card to the county clerk. They could also
register at the polling place on election day. Simi-
lar procedures have been instituted in New Jersey
Attorney General Frank Kelley yesterday
said the process of hair transplants by the
use of skin grafts to the scalp constitutes the prac-
tice of medicine. Consequently, persons performing
hair transplants must be doctors and subject to
licensing and regulation. Hair transplants, he said,
"is a method of cosmetic surgery designed to re-
lieve a human complaint or other condition and
thus constitutes the practice of medicine." Sounds
Make love, not cars
Henry Ford II, head of the Ford automobile em-
pire, was fined $375 and received a suspended 35-
day jail sentence and two years probation yester-
day when his attorney pleaded no contest to a
drunken driving charge in Santa Barbara, Calif.
He was charged with weaving and driving down
the wrong side of the street. Police said he failed
a sobriety test and was jailed for four hours
before he was released on $375 bail. Officers said
he was in the company of Kathleen Duross, 35, a
Detroit model and interior decorator. Duross, a
widow from Grosse Pointe, has worked in movies
introducing new cars.
Three woman bus drivers were fired, and an-
other suspended, for smoking marijuana between
bus, runs, according to Lansing school officials.
One source even said there was one. case in which
a driver smoked "in front of the kids on the bus."
But evidence also seems to show that the kids
weren't exactly novices when it came to the
illegal substance. One bus driver said one of the
fired drivers "bought the stuff from the kids on
her bus and smoked with her kids."

The bargaining teams for the University
and the Graduate Employes' Organization
(GEO) reached yet another impasse yes-
terday after fruitful negotiations on Mon-
day and Tuesday brought the parties to the
very brink of a settlement.
Representatives from the teams are
scheduled to begin presenting their posi-
tions to state-appointed fact-finder Patrick
McDonald in Detroit no earlier than to-
morrow and more likely on Monday. After
hearing the cases for at least several days,
McDonald will hand down his non-binding
recommendation for a settlement.
AS OF last night, no bargaining sessions
were scheduled for today, though GEO
leaders said they planned to call Univer-
sity representatives this morning to re-
quest such a session.
Earlier in the week both sides made
concession on their proposals and it ap-
peared that the two-week-old strike was
about to end.
But yesterday the GEO rejected a pack-
age proposal which chief University nego-
tiator Charles Allmand called the adminis-
tration's final offer, and in turn the Uni-
versity refused a package offer from the
GEO. A short meeting of a few represen-
tatives from the teams failed to bring
further movement from either side.
"IT WAS worthwhile," said University
counsel William Lemmer, as he emerged
from the bargaining room on the third floor
of the Union. "They worked hard and we
worked hard and we came close, but close
only counts in horseshoes."
Speaking at GEO'S mass meeting at the
First Methodist Church last night, union
spokesman David Gordon denounced All-
mand's claim that the University has made
a "final" offer.
"They're like the boy who cried wolf.
Their first offer was their 'last' offer, their
latest offer was their 'last offer', he com-
mented. "The only ultimate offer will be
the one we accept.
"WHAT THE University is waiting for
is the GEO to collapse, and our strike will
not collapse until we have a package," he
Economics, agency shop, and definition
of fraction are the three major disputes
which continue to divide the parties, al-
though on economics they are very close
Of the three issues agency shop appears
to be the toughest to resolve. Indeed, it is
apparent that a total settlement will be
quickly forthcoming once agency shop is
THE POSITIONS of both parties on the
three disputes follow:
* Agency shop. The GEO membership
voted last night to toughen up their pro-
posal and called for a full agency shop,
which would provide for every graduate
employe to either join the union or pay a
service fee to the union in the amount
of union dues.
The GEO bargaining teams had pre-
viously made a concession on the offer
which would allow all graduate employes

Mistrust between Student Gov-
ernment Council (SGC) officers
has apparently caused a delay
in the distribution of leaflets
encouraging students to register
Council approved a motion
three weeks ago to distribute
letters informing students of the
March 10 registration deadline
for the April city elections. How-
ever, President Reddix Allen,
who reportedly does not trust
Treasurer Elliot Chikofsky to
handle monetary affairs, has
withheld distribution until he
can determine if SGC has the
money to go ahead with the
"I WAITED until Gary Baker
(a council member) told me
that there was enough money,"
said Allen. "I plan to conduct
an independent audit of SGC
Despite warnings from Demo-
cratic and Human Rights Party
members that students will not
receive the letters until after
the registration deadline if
there is more delay, Allen said
they may not even be printed
until next week.
According to him, this would
still leave enough time for the
letters to arrive before students
return from spring break. How-
ever, classes start March 10,
leaving students only one day
"Waiting this long to dis-
tribute the letter is worse than
not doing it at all," said Greg
Hebert, democratic chairman
of the Second Ward. He went
on to say that had SGC not
agreed to undertake the task,
the Democrats would have al-,
ready done it.
ACCORDING to Lana Pollack
a spokeswoman for the Demo-
crats, a similar voter registra-
tion drive last fall drew over
1500 to the Union site during
one week. On Monday this
week, however, only 18 people
registered to vote in the Union.
When David Faye, council ac-
tivist and associate of Allen,
was asked why Allen wished to
investigate SGC's financial af-
fairs when Chikofsky was sup-
posedly monitoring them, he re-
plied, "What non-entity are you

total cost of the mailing would
