'U' economist speaks
Prof. Phillip Wernette of the University's School of
Business Administration has compared the recent rise
in gold prices to the "tulip bulb mania of 1634," when
speculators in western European countries pushed the
prices of tulip bulbs to high levels only to see the
market collapse. Wernette said it is possible that the
surge in the price of gold "is the greatest international
speculative move" since the tulip bulb incident. "This
phenomenon does not represent loss of confidence in the
dollar," he said . . . "The strength of the American
economy justifies confidence."

1974 Pres. election sought
Pierre Salinger, former aide to President Kennedy,
yesterday called on President Nixon to ask the Supreme
Court to advance the date of the next presidential elec-
tion to April, 1974. In an open letter published in the
weekly news magazine in Paris L'Express, Salinger
said: "You could thereby stress that in your opinion
the best remedy would be to give the American people
a chance to be heard - by their votes. "No party would
have an advantage over the other. The Democrats today
are as unprepared as the Republicans for an election."
"If you choose to stand again you could, in all honor,
call on the American people to confirm the support that
you think you still merit."
Groucho grouchy
Comedian Groucho Marx has obtained a court order
holding up publication of a new book because the au-
thor failed to clean up his pungent quotes. The book,
"The Marx Bros. Scrapbook", was written by Richard
Anobile from hours of taped conversations with the
83-year-old comedian over several months. In the suit
Marx said the tapes contained a number of "colloquial-
isms . . . inappropriate for transcription." He said he
had assumed that Anobile would substitute other words
each time he used the Anglo-Saxon verb and participle
for sexual intercourse. The book is also liberally sprink-
led with references to people as "S.O.B.'s" and "fags."
Dope note
Police arrested three men and recovered illicit drugs
with a street value of over one million dollars yesterday
when they raided a Bronx apartment on a landlord's
tip. Two officers, summoned to the building by the land-
lord who said "he thought something funny was going
on," burst into the apartment and found eight pounds of
cocaine, police said. Police put the total value of the
drugs at 1.75 million dollars.
Agnew to be disbarred?
Norman Ramsey, president of the Maryland State Bar
Association, refused to comment yesterday in Baltimore
on a published report that the group intends to seek dis-
barment of former Vice President Spiro Agnew. The Bal-
timore News American quoted a source within the as-
sociation as saying that the group would file disbar-
ment proceedings against Agnew within a few days.
"I have absolutely no comment," Ramsey said. Evi-
dence presented by the Justice Department against
Agnew listed overt acts allegedly committed in Balti-
more County, where Agnew was county executive. Ag-

All you turkey lovers out there had better get your

No Sunday Driving
The Dutch prepared yesterday for their second suc-
cessive Sunday without the family car - and this Sun-
day foreign motorists are included in the ban on pleasure
driving in Hague. The government axed Sunday driving
toall but special permit holders in a bid to save gaso-
line after' an oil boycott of Holland by Arab countries.
Last Sunday people brought -out their bicycles, horses
and carriages, motorbikes, and even roller-skates. Now,
police said, they were extending the ban to foreign mo-
torists because children tended to regard the empty
highways as natural playgrounds for roller-skating,
games and even picknicking.

It wasn't convincing, it wasn't impressive, and it certainly
wasn't "cute", but Michigan's 21-6 bludgeoning of Illinois yes-

a win.
And with it, Schembechler's Wolverines kept their record
unsullied in their relentless bid for a Big Ten championship
and a national title.

to impeach
LANSING (UPI) - More than
200 protesters, including two Demo-
cratic state representatives and a
Unitarian minister, staged an "Im-
peach Nixon" rally yesterday on
the steps of the state Capitol.
Most of those participating in
the event were young persons, pri-
marily students from nearby Mich-
igan State University. However,
there were some middle-aged and
elderly demonstrators as well.
"I WANT HIM out of here. I
don't care how it's done," said
Harold Rundell, a 71-year-old re-
tiree from suburban Haslett.
Keynote speaker was the Rev.
Robert Green, pastor of an East
Lansing Unitarian church. Others
who took the podium included
State Representatives Perry Bul-
lard (D-Ann Arbor) and L y n n
Johndahl (D-East Lansing) and Al
Dutzy of the local United A u t o
Workers Community Action Pro-
All the speakers accused Nixon
of committing impeachable crim-
es and "sabotaging the democratic
"RICHARD NIXON is guilty,
period," Johndahl declared after
reciting a list of the President's
alleged offenses.
"There are many things we
can do to bring about his impeach-
ment, now that we have started,"
said Bullard. "The king must go."
Organizers distributed petitions
calling for Nixon's impeachment
and said that when signed they will
be sent to U.S. Rep. Charles Cham-
berlain (R-Mich.) whose district
includes the Lansing area.

Maize and Blue had to come from
behind for the first time in their
nine starts to stamp out the up-
set dreams of the stubborn visitors.
BUT COME from behind they
did, however halting and impre-
cise their efforts may have been.
"Remember one thing, guys," a
relieved Schembechler told report-
ers afterward, "we won the foot-
ball game, and they didn't. That's
all that really counts."
Many felt that the Illini would
prove to be the same stiffs much
of the Big Ten has grown to be,
but Schembechler's traditional
storm warnings were, for once, on
IN THE end Michigan needed a
fluke 20-yard ramble by tight end
Paul Seal with a Dennis Franklin
fumble to cinch the verdict, and
that didn't come until midway into
the fourth period.
Until then Coach Bob Black-
man's crew was very much in the
ball game, a fact the proud Black-
man was quick to point out.
"The last score by Seal took the
heart out of my team," he offered,
"but we were in it until then.
We're awfully disappointed, be-
cause a lot of our guys played
great games."
AFTER A scoreless first quar-
ter in which a runaway Irish Set-
ter pranced up and down the grid-
iron for a full three minutes to
merit the loudest roar of the frig-
id afternoon, the Illini began the
game's first sustained drive.

Rule change

Proposed changes in nationwide
rules may jeopardize the image of
the Democratic Party-the party
that in 1972 proclaimed itself
"new" and "grass roots" and "of
the people."
The Democratic National Com-
mittee is driving to abolish the
"quota system" of delegate renre-
sentationaat its conventions. This
system last year insured propor-
tional representation of minorities,
and was a major contributing force
to the emergence of the "new
coalition" of women and blacks
that nominated Sen. George Mc-
Govern for president.
THE QUOTA system was based'
on the makeup of party member-
ship-i.e. 11 per cent black mem-
bership would mean 11 per cent
black delegates. Under the pro-
posed changes the party will en-
courage minority representation
through an affirmative action pro-
gram, with each state and local
delegation being required to pro-
duce evidence that its delegate
selection process was open.
Explains Delegate Selection Com-
mission staff member Doris Hard-
esty: "Last year the quota was
suggested. This time we'll say (to
state party chapters), 'Did you
implement a plan to give an op-
portunity for everyone?' If the
method is fair, then the results
will stand on themselves."
Another change being considered
by the DNC is elimination of win-
ner-take-all primaries, replacing
them with proportional allocation

of delegates based on candidate
preference--providing a candidate
secures at least 10 per cent of the
A THIRD proposed change is
abolition of "automatic delegates"
accompanying a state delegation
to the national convention. This
will eliminate governors, state
legislatorsand other office holders
who in the past have been ad-
mitted into the national conven-
tion as ex officio delegates.
The new rules will be adopted or
rejected when the DNC meets in
February or March of next year.
LAST YEAR was the first time
the party operated under a quota
system for minority representa-
tion. The quota resulted in the
inclusion of an unprecedented
number of women and blacks in
the national convention, and cul-
minated in McGovern's nomina-

Democrats struggling to regain
Reaction of local politicians to
the proposed rule changes was
generally favorable, though some
voiced reservations.
LAIRD HARRIS, city Democratic
Party chairman, said he had fear-
ed the proposed rules would be
"a much larger step backward"
than they actually are. "There is
not much difference between the
wording of the new rules and old
rules," said Harris.
Harris expressed confidence that
the new rules would not counter-
act changes made in the party over
the past few years.
"Even if all the McGovern re-
forms were wiped out," he said,
"we would never have gone back
to the '68 situation. I'll make a
prediction: Quotas and other things
will not remain an issue. The party
will find other things to fight
Jones (D-Second Ward) disagreed.
"The problem with the changes is
that they copped out on real rep-
resentation of minorities," she said.
"They tried to make changes
that are a kind of backlash ef-
fect," said Jones. She said she
fears a return by the party to pre-
1972 practices.
She called the party's progress
toward wider representation of
blacks and women "a snail's pace,"
and said she was on the whole
"disappointed" with the proposed
new rules.

Premier Golda Meir, after hesi-
tating for a day to clear up Israeli
misgivings, accepted U.S. Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger's
truce plan yesterday. She s a i d
Israel will sign it today in t h e
hope the plan will lead t9 per-

With Egyptian acceptance al-

ered the last apparent barrier to

SYRIA, THE third major coin-
