GEO bares it
Uhion loyalty soared to new heights Friday night
as David Gordon and Alexander "Sandy" Wilken-
son took it all off for the GEO. Shedding their in-
hibitions along with their clothing, the union lead-
ers made their boogie and burlesque debuts atop
a dining room table at a post-settlement wing-ding
at East Quad. Unabashedly stripping down to imi-
tation leopard-skin undies, and then taking it all
off, Gordon stuck to his previous promise to dance
nude on a tabletop, while smoking weed for the
second time in his life. Three hundred cheering
supporters watched the dynamic duo as they hoofed
to the sensuous strains of Sly Stone's "Family
Affair." According to GEO sources, both Univer-
sity negotiator Charles Allmand and President Rob-
ben Fleming were invited to the victory bash but
refused to negotiate an appearance.
More on the bat
In response to Kathy Kozachenko's (HRP-Second
Ward) and Joel Greenman's claim that city police
brought a studded bat to use against Arab dem-
onstrators at the speech by Israeli President
Ephraim Katzir, eyewitnesses contend "the HRP's
claim is a bunch of crap." According to the wit-
ness, who asked not to be named fearing reprisals
from Arab sympathizers, the bat was carried under
the jacket of a man "with Arab features and wear-
ing Arab headess." After calling an officers
attention to the bat, one witness was "spit all
over punched, and kicked; it was like being
attacked by a pack of animals." The bat was then
thrown into the bushes by another "Arab-looking.
man" where the police subsequently took posses-
sion of it, the witness claimed.

Out of this world sale
Bargain hunters snatched up everything from
prototypes of space helmets to insulated space suit
knee convolutes at a unique rummage sale yester-
day held by the ILC Corp., which manufactured
the Apollo moon suit. Some shoppers were selec-
tive about what they bought, but others invested
a few bucks just for the fun of it. "It's the greatest
thing going . . . there's all kinds of junk in here,
said Mrs. Robin Gather of Newark, Del. She pur-
chased a box of assorted items in a cardboard
box for $2.50. Nestled among such esoteric items
as small insulation convolutes, which make a joint
in a space suit bendable, was a pair of space
socks. Thomas McDonald, a collector from Ne-
shanic, N.J., bought a mock-up display model of
a space suit which company officials had originally
priced at $500. He bought it for $140 and planned
to have it put on display at a high school. It was
his first space-age acquisition.
Scoop scoops up

Gov. George Wallace as the top fund raiser among

Jackson has raised $389,000 since the start of the
year. Wallace has raised $303,000 and Bentsen
$146,000, according to latest campaign finance re-
ports. All three raised around $1 million or more
last year with Wallace outpacing the rest. Jack-
son, the Washington Democrat who has declared
himself a candidate for the 1976 presidential nomi-

Woman kill1ed
in fall from
car structure
A young woman plunged 67 feet to her death from the seventh
floor of the University's Thompson Street parking structure yes-
terday afternoon. City police, while refusing to term the death
a suicide, indicated that there was no evidence of foul play.
The battered, blood-covered body of Kathleen Calderone, 22,
of Grass Lake, Mich., was found shortly after 5 p.m. yesterday
between parked University trucks and a pile of concrete blocks
just to the south of the parking structure.
THERE WERE no apparent eyewitnesses to the fall, which
occurred justas many residentsdof West Quad, located just
across the street, were heading for dinner.

2men in
dope bust
Working on a tip obtained by
undercover detectives, city
police and federal narcotics
agents seized five hundred
pounds of marijuana Friday and
arrested two men they believe
flew the dope into Ann Arbor's
Municipal Airport Thursday
Police Chief Walter Krasny
said the marijuana, with an
estimated street value of $65,-
000, was probably flown here
directly from Acapulco.
KRASNY SAID the two sus-
pects were not arrested until
after the cargo was transferred
from their small plane to a
rented truck. The detectives
arrested the men less than a
mile from the airport, which is
located in Pittsfield Township.
The suspects were identified
as Michael Webb, 24, and James
Mahar, 22. They were charged
with violation of federal narco-
tics laws and are being held at
Washtenaw County Jail.
The two will be taken to
Federal District Court in De-
troit tomorrow for arraignment.
Krasny said that the under-
cover agents received the tip
Thursday while involved with
"another deal." The detectives
then contacted federal authori-
ties and arranged for the neces-
sary search warrants.
Krasny said that federal
agents were brought into the
case because it involved inter-
state transport of narcotics, a
violation of federal laws. The
chief also said the county sher-
iff's office was informed of the

An ambulance was called, but
the victim was pronounced dead
on the scene.
POLICE SAID that Calderone
apparently fell or jumped from
the empty top floor of the park-
ing structure. The floor is com-
pletely encircled by a concrete
and steel railing approximately
four feet high.
As news of the death spread
to West Quad, groups of curious
dorm residents ran outside,
waited on the steps, and hung
out of windows to try to get a
view of the scene.
City police cordoned off the
area before the medical ex-
aminer arrived on the scene
to remove the body. An autopsy
will be performed today at
University Hospital.
POLICE SAID that Calderone

town near Jackson, about 40

City Administrator Sylvester
Murray will announce that
April's day care ballot proposal
could, if passed, require some
$565,000 in city revenues be al-
located to child care-nearly
twice as much as originally ex-
Murray's notice came in a
memo intended for Monday's
City Council meeting.
THE DAY care proposal spon-
sored by the Human Rights
Party (HRP) calls for, "appro-
priating no less than 1.7 per cent
of the total of all City revenues
for the direct provision of day
care services ..."
When HRP was collecting sig-
natures to get the proposed

However, both City Attorney
Edwin Pear and Murray con-
tend the wording of the proposal
"was intended to be all inclusive
and mean (1.7 per cent of) all
sources of City revenue," not
simply general fund revenue.
Murray has previously said he
w o u l d recommend that the
$315,000 figure be included in
the upcoming city budget, if the
amendment passes. But that de-
cision would be open to chal-
lenge by City Council or a pri-
vate individual.

Amendment passes the esti-

mated costs for child care vary

Pear explains in a separate
memo to council, "because the
drafters (HRP) of the amend-
ment now say that the amend-
ment does not mean what it
appears to mean, the amend-
ment itself could be subject to
a lawsuit."
According to Pear, "HRP has
argued that it is implicit in the
amendment that only general
fund revenue is meant ..." He
further contended HRP's claim
does not agree nor is supported
by the amendment's language.
City Councilwoman Kathy

Ford softens stand
on aid to Cambodia
WASHINGTON (Reuter)-A White House spokesman said to-
night that President Ford was not taking an "all-or-nothing"
position in his efforts to get Congress to vote emergency military
aid for the Cambodian government of President Lon Nol.
But he said that the President was not ready to accept a
cut-off date for military aid as part of a compromise with Congress.
WHITE HOUSE sources had earlier said that such a com-
promise would be acceptable if Congress, in return, would vote
for $82.5 million for weapons and ammunition for the besieged
forces in Phnom Pehn.
The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee
voted against further military aid after Acting Secretary of State
Robert Ingersoll had flatly rejected a proposal to tie it to a June 30
end to all military aid.
White House spokesman Ron Nessen said last night that Ford
was still actively seeking to get as much for Cambodia as soon
as possible.
HE SAID: "The President is not taking an all-or-nothing
position. However, we are not ready to accept a cut-off date as
part of a compromise."
He said administration officials would be making contact with
members of Congress over the weekend in an effort to work out
