Six Pages plus Supplement

An explanation
You may notice something different about this morn-
ing's Michigan Daily. It's pretty small - only six pages.
This is not because we've run out of news or money.
The problem is, we're literally running out of paper.
Perhaps you have heard on radio and TV or read in
the papers something about a newsprint shortage. A
series of long and crippling strikes' in the paper industry
have, at this point, brought production and delivery of
newsprint to a complete halt. We have no idea how
long this state of affairs will last, but to conserve what
supplies of paper we have left, we are instituting a
program of cutbacks aimed at reducing consumption.
The first step is to occasionally reduce the paper to six
pages when conditions permit. If we don't take this
step, we run the risk of using up all our paper before
the strike ends and new deliveries are possible. We
therefore ask our readers' indulgence in seeing us
through this difficult situation.
Royal abdication
The captains and the kings depart - and so, event-
ually, do emperors. Student Government Council mem-
ber and self-proclaimed Bullshit Party Emperor Dave
Hornstein announced his retirement from "sandbox gov-
ernment" during this week's SGC meeting and also an-
nounced intentions to move onto bigger and better things
-most notably schoolwork. Hornstein reminisced about
his colorful career during members' time. "The dope
co-op," Hornstein recalled, "ah yes, that was one of the
high points . . . in more ways than one." Appropriately,
Hornstein concluded his career with the presentation of
the second annual Michael Davis Memorial Award "for
extending adolescence beyond all previous limits." Horn-
stein's nominee - longtime SGC member David Smith-
passed council unanimously. Farewell, forthright bull-
shitter. We shall miss you.
Esch meeting
In response to last week's occupation of his office,
U.S. Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Ann Arbor) met yesterday
with representatives of the Chile Support Coalition. When
pressed for his position on recognizing the new Chilean
regime, Esch declared, "At the present time it would
not be appropriate to recognize the current government."
But he didn't rule ot the possibility of changing his
mind when more facts of the coup come to light. Esch
was also asked whether he would support the Moakley
Bill sponsored by Rep. John Moakley (D-Mass.) which
would authorize congressional investigation of possible
U.S. involvement in the coup. Esch replied curtly, "The
bill will never get out ofcommittee!"
Happy birthday
Prof. Lewis Kleinsmith entertained his Bot./Zoo. 106
lecture yesterday with a sterling rendition of "Happy
Birthday" The occasion was a 104th birthday party.
No, not an aging student, but DNA - the genetic code
that was discovered way back in 1869.
Though it was done in the diplomatic fashion ex-
pected of statesmen, University President Robben Flem-
ing and Regent Gerald Dunn got into something of a
verbal altercation at yesterday's Regents meeting. Whent
Fleming commented that everyone could not be satis-
fied with the outcome of a vote on salary disclosures,
Dunn said, "Another President, Harry Truman once
said, 'If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kit-
chen.' " Replied Fleming dryly, "I've learned to live
with the failings in my character."

Inflation spiral
Consumer prices, paced by the biggest monthly
jump in food costs since 1933, rose 1.8 per cent in
August. Food prices themselves rose 6 per cent during
that time period. To no one's surprise an administration
spokesman predicted than the prices would soon start
In a story about the Regents in yesterday's Daily
we inadvertently attributed remarks to Prof. L. Hart
Wright which should have been attributed to Prof.
Thomas Larkin. Prof. Wright had originally been sched-
uled to speak but was replaced by Prof. Larkin. The
Daily regrets the error.

Kissinger, the German-born immi-
grant who became President Nix-
on's No. 1 foreign policy adviser
four years ago, was confirmed by
the Senate yesterday to be secre-

in an effort to stop news leaks.
Kissinger, in his confirmation hear-
ings before the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee, acknowledged
he provided the names of some of
his aides who had access to con-
fidential information.
Abourezk said, "We know enough
about Dr. Kissinger to know h:lt
he is capable of deceiving the Con-
gress and the public. We know
enough about him to know that he
has little regard for the basic lib-
erties of even his own staff."

Hughes said the most compelling
reason for his vote was that Kis-
singer "is guided by a philosophy
that is inimical to the long range
cause of world peace and incon-
sistent with the moral purpose of
our nation."

wheat sale to Russia in which "we
sold too much, too cheap."
"If the Soviets took us for a ride

hard?" Helms asked.
