TF decision today
University President Robben Fleming will release a
statement sometime today which informed sources say
could head off an impending strike by teaching fellows.
At a meeting of the literary college faculty Monday,
Fl-i-g anno',aced that he would produce a definitive
statement clarifying in-state residency criteria and sti-
pends for. teaching fellows. The teaching fellows are pro-
testing University decisions made over the summer
which, together with the tition hike, have worsened
their economic condition. The TFs meet tomorrow night
at 8 p.m. in the UGLI Multipurpose Room to vote on their
course of action, which could include a work stoppage
or strike. The meeting will take place regardless of the
content of Fleming's statement.
Helmet option proposed
State Representative Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
wants to give city motorcyclists the right to decide whe-
ther or not they wear crash helmets. He has proposed
legislation that would repeal a present state law re-
quiring persons operating a motorcycle to wear a state
police-approved crash helmet. "There already are too
many federal ,state and local laws and ordinances that
tell people how to live. These statutes destroy individual
rights without the necessary showing of benefit for the
community." Bullard said. He quoted Thomas Jeffer-
son, saying "The legislative powers of government ex-
tend to such acts only as are injurious to others."
Hart's integrity cited
Senate legislative assistants named Michigan Sen.
Philip Hart the Senator with the "most integrity" in a
survey conducted by Ralph Nader's Capitol Hill news
service. The senatorial aides who perform much of the
day-to-day back up work for Senators also chose Sen.
Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.) as the "brightest" Senator. Javits
and Sen. Warren Magnuson, (D-Wash.) tie for second
place for "most effective" senator behind Sen. Henry
Jackson, (D-Wash.). In the opinion of the legislative
aides, the "hardest working" is Sen. Robert Byrd (D.
W. Va.).
U profs to visit China
University professors Harold Stevenson and Martin
Whyte will be part of a 10-member team of childhood
development specialists visiting the People's Republic
of China Nov. 15 to Dec. 6. The team is the first in a
series of eight American groups which will tour the Peo-
ple's Republic in conjunction with a National Academy
of Science exchange program between the two countries.
The specialists will study Chinese institutions that deal
with young children, including day care centers, pedia-
tric clinics, homes and kindergartens. "The Chinese are
interested in American ideas," Stevenson said, "but they
'will be primarily concerned with showing us what has
been accomplished in their country." Stevenson is a
psychology professor and former director of the Insti-
tute of Child Development at the University of Minne-
sota and past president of the Society for Research in
Child Development. Sociology Prof. Whyte is a specialist
in comparative social institutions and family systems in
China and the Soviet Union.

Tough porno lawy passed

The small town of New Baltimore, Mo., has put into
effect an anti-pornography law that could make even
baby powder advertisements illegal. "I believe some of
these ads show bare baby bottoms," said police chief
Edward Reim. Under the law, passed unanimously Oct.
23, buttocks are among things classified as offensive.
Already, drug stores, supermarkets, bookshops and other
businesses have removed Plhyboy and other girlie maga-
zines from their racks. Selling magazines or books show-
ing parts of the body listed as offensive - or even giv-
ing -way s ich materials - carries a maximum jail term
of 90 days and maximum fine of $500. Why the tough
ordinance for this town of about four thousand? "People
here don't like that stuff," said Mayor Hermann Staff-

Cops nab
two men
in record
pot bust
Federal, state, and city police
collaborated Monday night in what
is believed to be the largest mari-
juana seizure in the history of
Washtenaw county. 880 pounds of
marijuana, with an estimated
street value of over $125,000, was
confiscated in the arrest.
The two men arrested in con-
nection with the raid are John
Hecht 26, of San Diego, Calif., and
Eugene Cunningham, 31, of Rich-
field, Wash.
THE ARREST occurred Monday
night around 8 p.m. in the parking
lot of the Arborland shopping cen-
ter on Washtenaw Ave.
Police Chief .Walter Krasny said
that "police undercover agents
made arrangements to make a pur-
chase with these men. When they
delivered the stuff, we arrested
When the pair was arrested po-
lice also confiscated their van,
which had California license plates.
They also seized a quantity of co-
caine, and a number of handguns.
ACCORDING TO Krasny,'federal
agents had the two men and their
van under surveillance during its
trip to Michigan from the west
Commenting on the raid, police
information director Lt. Richard
Hill said, "It's obvious that these
are no small time guys here to sell
a few pounds." He believed the
pair were part of a larger organiz-
ation involved in transporting
drugs into the state.
"Yeah, these guys are big time."
Following their arrest the pair
were bound over to federal authori-
ties in Detroit. They were arraign-
ed yesterday morning in Federal
District Court.

Demo rats victorious
in N.Y. New Jersey

State Sen. Coleman Young became Detroit's first black
mayor last night as he " defeated former police commissioner
John Nichols in a close contest.
Unofficial figures showed Young capturing 51.8 per cent
of the vote. With 96 per cent of the vote tabulated the figures
were Young 213,449 and Nichols 215,791.
MOST OF THE unreported precincts were predominantly black
districts where Young is the near unanimous choice.
Elsewhere in the nation, Democrats fared well. How much of that
success was attributable to President Nixon's troubles as opposed to
local issues was not immediately clear.

DENIS LEE makes some final adjustments on an artificial ear he has constructed for one of his
many patients. Using skills he acquired as an artist, Lee designs body parts for victims of illness
and accidents.
Des Lee:.Cra tsman
.p i

Denis Lee has a drawer in his workbench
filled with noses. Rubber noses, plaster noses and
even a spare finger.
Lee, however, is no simple make-up man. His
subjects are not actors, but ordinary people, who
have lost parts of their body as a result of some
illness or accident.
HIS JOB IS to replace those missing parts with
artificial structures-a task known in the science
world as prosthetics.
Though he serves as director of medical illu-
strations at the University Medical Center, Lee
views himself primarily as an artist.
Each piece that he does is molded individually
to best match the original. Working from pictures,
plaster molds and in the case' of fingers or ears,
an impression of the corresponding part, Lee

sculpts a model of the replacements in clay. From
there he uses silicone to make the replacement
part, painting in blemishes and skin tone.
"EVERY DENTIST takes a course in pros-
thetics," says Lee from his office in the basement
of the North Outpatient Clinic. Often, he adds,
they must make the artificial parts simply be-
cause no one else can.
"I don't like to knock anybody," Lee quips,
"but lost of people make ball point pens too. The
question is, which one would you prefer?"
Lee got into the field several years ago when
Dr. Reed Dingman, head of the University Hos-
pital's plastic surgery department, asked him if
he could come up with an alternative to the poorer
quality parts being produced.
AFTER A YEAR of work in his basement, Lee

porters last night. "Thisis a vic-

He said his administration would
not show racial favoritism.
"I'M NOT GOING to punish any-
body but I'm going 'to insist on
equality for everybody," Young
said. "That's what a mayor's race
is all about."
Nichols took an early lead in the
ballotting with votes from pre-
dominantly white precincts. As the
evening wore on, however, Young
closed the gap and eventually went
ahead on the strength of his per-
formance in the city's black areas.
Only an estimated 42 per cent
of the city's 815,000 registered
voters went to the polls on the
cold, clear day in the Motor City.
THE ELECTION caps one of the
most bitter and racially polarized
camnaigns political observers can
recall. Nichols ran primarily on
his law and order image acquired
during his 31 year police career.
He tried to link his opponent
with the city's lawless elements,
but the voters apparently rejected
that appeal
In New York, Democrat Abe
Beame won a landslide victory in,
that city's race for mayor. The
67-year-old Beame won an esti-
mated 61 per cent of the vote in
a four-man race.
SO SWEEPING was his victory
that one of his three opponents,
Liberal Albert Blumenthal, con-
ceded defeat just 40 minutes after
the polls closed-a possible record.
Beame becomes the first Jew
to be elected mayor of New York,
which has the largest Jewish popu-
lation of any city in the U.S. and
more Jews than Tel Aviv.
Not surprisingly, he swept an
estimated 66 per cent of the Jewish
vote but also did extremely well
in Puerto Rican and black areas
of the city.
Beame carried in a slate of viC-
torious Democrats including long-
time liberal activist Paul O'Dwyer.

luster candidate, Beame apparent-

before grand

j ury

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President Nix-
on's private secretary, Rose .Mary
Woods, was called by a federal
judge yesterday to tell what she
knows about the two missing
Watergate tapes.
At the same time, former attor-
ney general Elliot Richardson ap-
pealed for a presidential commit-
ment to make available all rele-
vant tape recordings, notes and
other documents bearing on the
gress continued investigations into
the latest Watergate Developments,
Nixon, firmly resisting pressure on
him to resign over his handling of
the bugging scandal, turned his
full attention to emergency plans

to meet an oil embargo imposed
by Arab producers against the
United States.
The call to Woods, who has been
with Nixon for many years and is
one of his close confidantes, fol-
lowed testimony before Judge John
Sirica, ,who is presiding over grand
jury inquiries, about a weekend
last September at the presidential
retreat at Camp David, Md., when
Nixon, his aides Stephen Bull, and
Woods reviewed boxes of the Presi-
dent's secret tapes.
Woods was officially summoned
when Sirica interrupted the fourth
day of proceedings to say:
"AS LONG AS we're going into
this detail, will someone please get
word to Miss Woods that she will
be called as a witness in this

Nixon's lawyers said Sirica's re-
quest to Woods would be honored.
The President reluctantly agreed
on Oct. 22 to hand -over to Sirica
nine tapes of his conversations
with presidential aides bearing on
the Watergate bugging scandal.
a BUT LAST WEEK it was an-
nounced that two of the tapes did
not exist, resulting in a new furor
over the President's handling of
the Watergate affair and more de-
mands for his resignation.
Bull told Sirica he worked in a
room of Miss Woods' personal cot-
tage at Camp David, while, for
most of the time there, she and
the President worked together
alone in another room.
HE SAID THE three of them
were the only White House per-

sonnel at the presidential retreat
over the weekend. He related one
instance of hurriedly "obscuring"
the tapes and papers when a Navy
yeoman appeared suddenly at the
cottage to make a delivery. .
Bull said Woods began listening
to the tapes and typing Sept. 29,
and continued this work the next
week in Washington and through
the following weekend at Key Bis-
cayne, Fla., where Nixon has a

fused to say whether Woods was
making a transcript and said he
didn't even ask.
"I intentionally did not do this
because it was not my business,"
he said.
"I continued to line up tape for
her review and the President's
review," said Bull.
HE TESTIFIED that he was sent
to the presidential retreat at Camp
David Sept. 28 to find portions of
the tapes the President wanted to
listen to. He had performed the
same chore for Nixon last June 4,
Bull said.
Diring his review of the tapes,
Bull said, he could not find two
