They shoot wolverines
- In the tradition of Depression-era contests, the All-
Campus Dance Marathon dragged its feet to an ex-
hausted conclusion at 5:30 yesterday morning. But
unlike the three-week affairs of the 1930's, the winners
-Engineering senior Roland Billy and nursing school
junior Lauralee Hess-only fasted for 14 hours. It was
all for a good cuse: the winning couple and the four
runners-up, who all lasted 14 hours, gave their prize
money to Sullivan children's school and other organiza-
tions aiding mentally retarded children.
Ford strike imminent?
The United Auto Workers' top negotiator with Ford
Motor Co. said yesterday that company chairman Henry
Ford II had killed all chances of a settlement by to-
morrow's artificial deadline. "What Mr. Ford should be
doing is sitting at the bargaining table instead of pop-
ping off the way he' is popping off," commented UAW
Vice President Ken Bannon. Instead of a settlement, the
union will apparently hand the nation's second largest
auto maker a letter at noon tomorrow, terminating the
existing contract and setting a strike deadline for 10
a.m. Friday for 185,000 Ford workers.

War reporters expelled
Two western journalists, Chicago Tribune correspon-
dent Donald Kirk and Reuter correspondent Fred Bridg-
land, were deported from Syria yesterday. The Syrian
authorities accused them of contravening wartime se-
curity regulations by traveling outside Damascus with-
out official authorization. The correspondents said they
were not informed of the need for such authorization.
They were detained after travelling by car to the south
of the Syrian capital in order to report on the situation
on the Syrian front of the Middle East war. They were
escorted to the Lebanese border yesterday morning and
expelled from Syria.
Nixon not funny
Americans apparently won't find anything funny about
President Nixon anymore, and so James La Roe is out
of ajpb. The actor had been earning as much as $50,000
a year, using the name Richard M. Dixon and imperson-
ating President Nixon, his lookalike. But since the Wat-
ergate revelations, he has been out of a job. "It's been
terrible. Nobody thinks anything about Nixon is funny
anymore, not even how he looks or talks or behaves,"
La Roe said. Asked what would happen if the President
is impeached, he said, "I guess I would have to turn
my comedy act into a tragedy."
Pablo Casals worse
Pablo Casals, the ailing composer and master cellist,
took a serious turn for the worse yesterday. He had
spent six\ days in a hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico
following a heart seizure. A family spokesperson said
the 96-year-old musician was doing "very poorly."
Floods in Spain
Flash floods fed by torrential rains swept through
parts of southern Spain, claiming as many as 100 dead,
officials said yesterday. More than 150 persons are
missing and hundreds are stranded in flooded towns.
Alaska pipeline bill
The Cost of Living Council announced strong opposi-
tion yesterday to a provision in the Alaska pipeline bill
which it said could immediately increase gasoline and
home heating oil bills by $10 billion. The council esti-

mated the immediate increases could be as much as
seven to eight cents a gallon for gasoline and 10 to 12
cents a gallon for home heating oil. The provision would
exempt from price controls most crude oil produced in

WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Nixon fired
special prosecutor Archibald Cox la.s t night and
accepted Attorney General Elliot Richardson's protest
resignation in a stunning collapse of Nixon's attempt
at a political compromise of the Watergate tapes
Nixon also fired Deputy Attorney General William Ruckels-
haus for refusing to obey an order to dismiss Cox after
Richardson refused to do so. Finally, U.S. Solicitor General
Robert Bork fired Cox at Nixon's direction, and Bork became
acting attorney general.

Department to be "carried forward with thoroughness and

Nixon announced 'a compromise arrangement for disclosure of
the substance of the Watergate tapes and ordered Cox to halt
further court action to obtain the tapes and other documentary
evidence for the federal grand jury.
Cox promptly rejected Nixon's order, and at .an extra-
ordinary news conference at midday yesterday announced he
would renew his court fight for the tapes through possible
contempt proceedings against the President.

Taking a cue from the 1943

touchdowns for the Wolverines,

523 yards in total offense against

the Badgers. The Michigan de- /
