This is it, the last Daily until May 7 when the
Summer Daily makes its debut. It's been fun, but
with the cold reality of finals upon us Daily staffers

Numbers game
Ronald Rossi, who had his motorcycle stolen
a few months ago, was lucky enough to stumble
on to it on campus the other day. He checked
the engine number, recognized it, and called the
police. They arrived just as the cycle's new own-
er was about to zip off on the machine. A discus-
sion followed, after which the cops let the guy
go with the cycle - an action they now alledgedly
apologize for as a "screw-up, a goof." Apparently
Rossi should have checked out the machine's
frame number as well as its engine number, since
motorcycles are registered under the former -
and for his mistake, he is now "numbered" among
the wheel-less.
Yesterday we mistakenly reported that the
Frame-up, Film Festival was showing it's last film
last night. The truth is that the film "Attica,"
wil be shown Monday night at 7:30 in Aud. D, An-
gell Hall.
Henry continued
With less than two weeks to go before the Uni-
versity's commencement exercises, Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger has still not confirmed his
"tentative" acceptance to speak here. Richard
Kennedy, Secretary of the University and Vice-
President for State Relations, confirmed yesterday
thatthe delay is "on the Washington end of things,"
but could not explain the reasons behind the hold-
up. A formal acceptance or rejection should have
come by now, according to a Department of
State spokesperson in Washington. The spokes-
person said yesterday that the good Doctor pro-
bably knows about the protest surrounding his
visit, which now centers around a "disinvitation"
drive and a "counter-commencement" at Crisler

Before getting out of bed to make her 11 o'cloc

snorted up a tiny spoonful. That relieved th

any junk all night.

When Karen returned to her apartment after
k her classes, she lay on the couch reading her
d homework assignments, doing some dope every
d hour. She ate some dinner, and then plopped her-
e self down in front of the television set and con-
e tinued snorting heroin hourly, increasing her
dosage from the afternoon. Some time after mid-
e night she lay down on her bed and fell asleep
- quickly.
d KAREN - NOT her real name - was a stu-
dent at the University during the past Fall term.
A native of suburban Detroit, she started the
n present semester in school, but quit after a short
s time. Now, she's living in Ann Arbor, looking for
a a job, and participating in a methadone mainte-
e nance program at the local heroin help center
Octagon House. She plans to go back to school
k in September or January.
- Sitting in a comfortable chair at the Octagon
House office, Karen lit a cigarette and toyed with
the strap of her leather handbag. "I didn't have



many friends in Ann Arbor when I was in
school," she said. "I still don't. I have a few, but
they're all pretty straight - well, not really
straight, but they don't do heroin.
"Most of my friends live in Brighton or South-
field. I used to drive out to see them all the time
when I was in school here, and I still do. They
all use heroin.
"I shoot up whenever I see them," she con-
tinued. "I can't hit myself up-I have to have
somebody else do it for me. So they do it."
semester wouldn't have known that she was a
junk user. Among pre-med students, the long
hours spent in labs and the late nights spent
solving calculus problems send enough poor souls
to sleep during lectures that an occasional heroin
nod in a class of 300 would go unnoticed.
And Karen doesn't appear seedy, ruthless or
desperate. She looks just slightly more elegant
than your average student, wearing a long knit

S Stor
sweater, sparkly socks, and a crisp new pair of
bellbottomed baggies.
Karen is one of an extremely small number
of students at the University who use heroin.
That drug is generally regarded with dread on
campus, even among students who use all kinds
of other drugs.
AND ALL kinds of other drugs are a regular
part of the lives of large numbers of students. A
stroll through the corridors of any dormitory,
at any time of the night or day, is usually
punctuated by the smell of marijuana.
If you know who to ask, and many students do,
you can buy any of a variety of types of LSD.
Cocaine is rarer than pot or acid, but every
so often words gets around a dormitory or a
circle of friends that a quantity of coke has
been bought by some local enterpreneur and is
available at about $70 a gram.

Ernst htas
Carol Ernst, the unsuccessful Human Rights Party
(HRP) candidate for mayor, was charged yesterday by a
former Republican City Councilman with failing to live
within Ann Arbor city limits during her campaign.
Anh Arbor police are presently investigating the alle-
gations made by John McCormick and are checking into
possible criminal violations of city and state election
law. Ernst could be formally charged and prosecuted for
election fraud if the allegations can be substantiated.

BUT THE larger implications
servers, are that city Republicans
candidacy invalidated therefore
votes which enabled Democrat
Albert Wheeler to beat Republi-
can incumbent James Stephen-
son by 121 votes.
Ernst claims to have moved
to Ann Arbor some two years
ago from Adrian, Michigan,
about 40 miles south of here.
She moved to an apartment on
Main Street but also rented an-
other house, this one on Maple
Street in Scio Township.
During her campaign and on
her literature, however, Ernst
claimed to have lived in Ann
Arbor for seven years. Records
show that she didn't register to
vote in the city until December
18, or just seven days before she
filed for the mayor's race. She
listed the Main Street address
as her official residence on
both the voter registration form
and the mayoral petitions.
BUT "because it wasn't a
liveable place," Ernst spent
most of her time in Ann Arbor,
she said. She continued, how-
ever, to pay rent for both resi-

Cobb deanshi controversy
The University's Affirmative Action Committee has completed
its two month investigation of the recent literary college (LSA)
deanship crisis amid some indications that the panel's upcoming
report will revive the so-called "Cobb controversy."
A flurry of protest hit the campus three months ago when
Jewel Cobb, a cell biologist who is currently Connecticut College's
dean, was rejected for the deanship post officially because of the
zoology department's refusal to grant her tenure. Concerned high
