HRP Second Ward City Council candidate Frank
Shoichet yesterday claimed his opponent Carol
Jones and State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
are "wasting their time" in seeking an opinion
from the state Attorney General to keep him off
the ballot. Shoichet took a pot-shot at the Dems
in his press statement, adding, "It's unfortunate,
however, that the Democrats don't seem to be
willing to risk an election in which their opposition
will be on the ballot."
Former University Professor and local indus-
trialist Keeve Siegel collapsed from a stroke while
testifying Thursday before the joint Congressional
Committee on Atomic Energy in Washington and
died at 5 a.m. yesterday at George Washington
University Hospital. In Washington, D.C., Siegel,
a world-famous physicist and inventor in the field
of optics, has been called "the wonder boy" in
local industrial circles after founding Conductron
Corp. on a shoestring and building it into a multi-
million-dollar radar and electro-optics industry.
More, recently, he had dedicated himself to the
achievement of controlled nuclear fusion at his
KMS Fusion Inc. Laboratories in Industrial Park.

Penniless, and carrying all his possessions in a
small duffle bag, 14-year-old Mike Romano arrived
in Omaha by bus about 5 a.m. yesterday, then
marched to the police station. Mike, who is small
for his age, walked in and presented the desk ser-
geant with a note from his grandmother in
Brooklyn, N.Y. The note read: "To whom it may
concern, I'm Michael's grandmother, and am
sending Michael to Boys Town because I don't
want him to be here in this awful crime city. I
can't take care of him anymore. I spent my last
penny to buy his ticket to come there. I hope that
he will be O.K. I would appreciate very much if
you help him." The letter, signed Mary Vaughn,
contained a telephone number. Police called Mrs.
Vaughn and found the note was indeed legitimate.
The Rev. Robert Hupp, Boys Town- director, heard
of Mike's arrival on an early morning radio news-
cast and about four hours later Mike checked in
as a Boys Town resident.
An end to Watergate?
Frederick LaRue, the first person to plead guilty
to the Watergate cover-up and possibly the last to
be sentenced, received a six-month prison term
yesterday. Moments later, James McCord lost his
last-ditch fight against going to prison for the
Watergate break-in. U.S. DistricttJudge John Sirica
sentenced LaRue to one to three years in prison,
then suspended all but six months of the penalty.

advocate Ralph N a d

of the w
before a capacity crowd at Hill Auditorium yes-
terday, blasted American food producers for
selling goods of questionable nutritional value.
"The hot dog is an example," he declared. "It
consists of fat, water, a little meat, and trash.
And in all-beef hot dogs, what little meat there
is is beef, but there's as much as 35 per cent fat."
HE PROPOSED nutritional education and the
formation of community food coops as a means
of increasing consumer influence on producers.
The audience applauded enthusiastically Na-
der's criticism of large food companies. The
attorney recounted a conversation with a Coca-

Nader warned that in many areas of the coun-
try corporate farming is destroying the land it
uses. "The big combines of 10-15,000 acres don't
know how to manage a farm," he declared.

tion and distribution, Nader proposed establishing
consumer co-ops, enforcement of anti-trust laws

The Markley House Council
has come under attack and faces
legal action after an apparently
illegal move last month allocat-
ing $475 in "compensation" to
its eight top officers.
In addition, Markley House
President Claudia Evans has
refused to show financial rec-
ords to residents . of Markley
THE SCANDAL broke Feb-
ruary 13, when the council, tired
over its inability to obtain the
necessary quorum of 25, voted
by a 6-4 margin to grant them-
selves the compensation. Since
that time, however, four of the
officers have returned the
As a result of the allocation,
a class action suit has been filed
by three Markley residents on
behalf of the dorm population
with the Central Student Ju-
diciary (CSJ). Until the case
is considered by CSJ next Tues-
day, a freeze has been placed on
the council funds, preventing
them from allocating any, fur-
The suit charges that Mark-

in the absence of a quorum and

in Roberts Rules of Order;

has been blown way out of pro-

was available to Markley resi-
dents three weeks before it was
passed. In addition it was read
over the PA system during meal
hours the three days preceeding

CONGRESSMAN DELLUMS speaks with reporters about re-
ordering national values shortly before addressing an audi-
ence at Hill last night.
Dellums asks unty
to combat 'system'
By BILL TURQUE
Calling on all Americans to "join hands on a journey from
niggerism to humanism," left-wing Democratic Congressman Ron-
ald Dellums told an enthusiastic crowd of about 200 at Hill Audi-
torium last night that inequities in food distribution were only
synptomatic of a system in need of fundamental change.
Dellums, speaking in conjunction with the city's observance
of National Food Week, said that only a mass coalition of white,
black and third world peoples could begin to counter what he
called "the maintenance man of the status quo on the right, and
knee-jerk liberals on the left."
"I KEEP hoping," said the Representative from Berkeley,
Calif., "that someday silent America will wake up and realize
that their sons fought and died in an illegal, immoral, and insane
war, that they elected a criminal 'to the White House, and that
they will join us in eradicating racism, sexism, and hypocrisy."
