More paper blues
Due to a further deterioration in the newsprint situa-
tion, we have been forced to make further cutbacks in
the size of The Daily. Our major papei supplier remains
strike-bound with no hope of settlement in the near fu-
ture. Another major paper company has resumed
operations and a trickle of paper-some of which may
become available to us - has begun to flow out of
Canada. In the meantime, in order to make our present
stores of 'paper last until more is available, we have
been forced reluctantly into further economizing meas-
ures. You may have noticed that several days a week
we are combining the Editorial nad Arts sections of the
paper on one Editorial/Arts Page. Further, it has become
necessary to make reductions in the size of the Sunday
Magazine. These cutbacks have become necessary in or-
der to insure continued publication. We hope you will
bear with us.
Branzburg speaks out
Controversial Detroit Free Press reporter Paul Branz-
burg, speaking in Lansing before the Women's Press
,Club, called for legislation of an "absolute statute" to
protect newsmen and their sources, Branzburg, formerly
a reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal, was hauled
up before a grand jury in 1969 for refusinig to reveal his
soui'ces on a story he wrote about a hashish factory. In
June, 1972, the Supreme Court upheld a contempt of
court citation the grand 'jury gave Branzburg, in a cru-
cial decision which held that the First Amendment does
not fully protect newsmen's sources. "As soon as you
throw a wall up between the press and its sources you
infringe upon the rights of the press," Branzburg com-
mented. "It's like throwing a monkey wrench into a news-
paper room."

Ms. Ernest Rivers - a resident clerk of the U.S.
Court in Paducah, Ky. - resigned yesterday after three
federal judges asked that she quit because of letters
she wrote to newspapers contrasting penalties imposed
on a young shoplifter and Spiro Agnew. In letters to the
Paducah Sun-Democrat and the Louisville Courrier-Jour-
nal, Rivers noted that an 18-year-old girl had been given
a 30-day sentence and fined $200 for attempting to
steal a $1.99 bottle of hair lightener and commented: "I
.ang appalled . . . to think that a sentence of this kind
could be imposed upon a young girl when at the same
time a man who was elected to the second highest office
in the country gets away with bribery and extortion."
Chief Judge James G ordon said he ,asked Rivers to
quit because her letters were "a reflection on the inte-
grity of the federal judiciary."

MINNEAPOLIS--Week after week, Michigan's opponenits
and their "vaunted" run'ning attacks try to ram the pigskin
down the Wolverines' throat and each wTeek they fail.
Yesterday was no different as the Michigan defense arose
and stopped the Minnesota Golden. Gophers and their ground
game cold, thrashing them 34-7 in the process.
AFTER THE OREGONS with their Don Reynolds and the
Wisconsins with their Jeff Mareks, the lesson should be clear.
But it wasn't.
Gopher coach Cal Stoll said he had planned to control the
football on the ground through a trio of fine backs, John King,

But King didn't play due to a knee
injury, Powell saw little action
other than returning kickoffs, and
the speedy Upchurch was suffici-
ently neutralized by ,the Michigan
front line.
"We had an exercise in futility
on offense," Stoll moaned after
the game. "We had planned to
control the ball by running it. We
couldn't do it but then again no
one else has against Michigan."
THE PATTERN for the cold,
blustery afternoon was set on the
saen ofensive play when Gpher
a handoff and tackle Doug Troszak
recovered it on the Minnesota. The
Gopher defense stiffened and all
Michigan could garner was a 27-
yard field goal from Mike L'antry.
A\fter the ensuing kickoff, fresh-
man fullback John Jones, starting
his first game in the place of the
injured King, coughed up the foot-
