Detroit dethroned
Detroit has been dethroned as the nation's fifth
largest city. The distinction now goes to Houston,
according to a recent population study in that city.
The report shows that Houston has 1,440,000 resi-
dents while Detroit is estimated at a relatively
mere 1,396,000 residents, although the latest esti-
mates for Motown will not be available till March.
But, combined with its suburbs, Detroit still con-
tains one million more residents than metro Hous-
ton, estimated at three million. And if that's no
consolation, fellow Detroiters, cheer up: We still
rank Number One as the murder capital of the
world.

Students barred
Angered by the bitter Crestwood school district
dispute, West Bloomfield instructors have refused
to tutor student teachers. "We don't want to train
people to take our jobs," said Susan Smith, presi-
dent of the West Bloomfield Education Associa-
tion. "If we're fired in the future, one of these
student teachers could be hired to take our place."
The decision was termed "unfair, unprofessional
and unethical" by representatives of Central Mich-
igan University. The college had planned to place
10 of its own student teachers in the district Mpn-
day. The action was, at any rate, predictable. Said
Dr. Roger Garvelink, West Bloomfield assistant
superintendent, "I suspect West Bloomfield will
just be the first of many teachers' unions in the
state to refuse student teachers. It's a sad situa-
tion. I don't know what we can do."

McGovern speaks
Sen. George McGovern, the South Dakota Demo-
crat whose 1972 presidential fiasco was based on
his opposition to the Vietnam War, spoke out yes-
terday against the most recent U. S. intervention
in Southeast Asia. "We have no obligation to count
violations on either side, and we have no obligation
to act as referee," said McGovern. "We conducted
the negotiations to secure the release of our pris-
oners of war;" He added that he was astonished
to hear State Dept. claims of "our right to break
the peace agreement made two years ago."
No stronghold
Here's a twisted bit of news from Knoxville,
Tenn.: Woodrow Harvey was in such a hurry to
go to the bathroom that he fired five pistol shots
through the lock of the closed door - as his son-in-

law, who was on the seat at the time- scrambled
for safety out the bathroom window. "I was just
trying to shoot the door open. It was locked and I
had to get in there," Harvey, 58, told a court Tues-
day when he appeared on a felonious assault
charge brought by his wife. Judge Jewell Watson
reduced the charge to simple assault and imposed
a six-month suspended sentence. He also offered
a word of advice: "Get an extra key to that bath-
room so you won't have to shoot your way in when
you have to go."

violence
BELFAST, Northern Ireland
W) - The outlawed Irish Re-
publican Army (IRA) ended its
25-day-old cease-fire early today
and resumed its campaign of
violence aimed at ending Nor-
thern Ireland's link with Brit-
ain.
Shootings, a bombing and dis-
covery of a truckload of ex-
plosives were reported in the
province as the cease-fire ex-
pired at midnight last night.
THE RESUMPTION of vio-
lence was condemned by politi-
cal leaders of all persuasions
and brought back the menace of
terror attacks throughout Brit-
ain. The militant Provisional
wing of the IRA, which called
the truce before the holidays,
said it was ended because the
British had not offered enough
concessions.
A British soldier was shot in
the foot and arm shortly before
midnight when troops chal-
lenged two men seen climbing a
fence around an electricity sub-
station in Tandragee, County
Armagh, the army said. The
men ran off after an exchange
of gunfire.
In North Belfast, four shots
were fired at a police patrol
in Cliftonville Road and more
shots were heard in the Falls
Road, the army said.
EXACTLY 'at midnight, a
bomb was thrown at an army
post on Antrim Road in North
Belfast. An army spokesman
said there were no casualties.
Three men were picked up
from a panel truck in the Mar-
kets area of downtown Belfast,
a known IRA stronghold, and
troops found 47 pounds of com-
mercial explosives - a typical
charge for an IRA car bomb

feared
By JEFF SORENSEN
Next year's budget will
"very likely" face a jolting
four per cent slash as a re-
sult of probable reductions
in state appropriations to
the University, the Regents
were told yesterday.
'Although Academic Af-
fairs Vice President Frank
Rhodes indicated that most
of the reductions would be
made by not hiring as
many new staff members,
he specifically refused to
rule out the possibility of
layoffs.
THE VICE P R E S I D E N T
stated, "some things that we
cherish may have to be reduc-
ed or eliminated," and that the
four per cent cut would result
in a "less diverse University.
This will cut deeply into some
of our programs," he said.
Rhodes refused to disclose or
confirm any details of the bud-
get cut. President Robben Flem-
ming said specifics would be
provided at the next February
Regents meeting.
Jim Weinstein, a student
member of the Budget Priori-
ties Committee, disclosed later
that the four per cent budget
cuts might force a reduction in
the number of University cours-
es, particularly during spring
and summer terms. "As a re-
sult, teaching fellows will defi-
nitely be affected" by the de-
creases Weinstein said. He add-
ed that clerical workers may be
affected by the cuts as well.
He also reported there will
be "no reductions in financial
aid" and that "highest priorities
will be given to avoid cutbacks
in our central research and
teaching functions."

the Regents seemed more than pleased with dormitory cooking-

"The lasagna was great," exclaimed Deane Baker (R-Ann

Lawrence Lindemer (R-Stockridge) agreed, but laughed and
admitted that the broccoli was "a little overcooked." Neverthe-

T h e President, meanwhile,
urged prompt congressional ac-
tion on his antirecession pro-

person said there was "common

critics; the government said the
weather-stricken 1974 corn crop
was 18 per cent smaller than in
1973, and there were more in-
dustrial and municipal layoffs.

S e v e r a I businessmen said
Ford's proposals for higher fuel
taxes as a means of curtailing
energy consumption would sim-
ply add to inflation by increas-
ing prices.
A spokesperson for Delta Air-
lines said substantial fare boosts
would be necessary and said
such increases "will further in-
hibit already declining traffic
growth and also add to infla-
tionary pressures on the
economy."
EDWARD CARLSON, presi-
dent of United Airlines, said the
suggested $3-a-barrel +qx on im-
ported crude oil would make it
"necessary to increasetpassen-
ger fares and freight rates sub-
stantially to compensate for the
added fuel costs."
Robert Williams, Illinois agri-
culture director, said costs for
liquid nitrogen fertili per, used
in corn production, could go up
$25 a ton, from $275 to $300,
because of the pr')0ooaed tax in-
crease. Higher fer-ilizer costs
might cause farmers to cut 'bacik
production, Williams said, and
lower production would mean
higher consumer cots for graim,
and grain-based foods.

Narcotics agents
bust 18 suspects
By DAVID BURHENN
Eighteen suspected area drug dealers have been arrested
and another nine are being sought following a massive
Wednesday night bust conducted by area police agencies.
Sixty-five officers participated in the raids-the payoff of
an 11 month investigation into local heroin trade by mem-
bers of the Washtenaw Area Narcotics Team (WANT).
THE WANT agents, including state troopers, Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti city police, and sheriff deputies from sur-
rounding counties, posed as drug buyers during the probe.
The suspects arrested in the raids were arraigned yes-
