State Lottery. A Detroit auto worker with 11 grand-
children won the top prize of $200,000 in the super draw-
ing, while eight other persons won prizes totaling $205,-
0000. Second chance numbers drawn yesterday were 279

Another mini-course
The American Studies Department yesterday releas-
ed plans for a one-credit mini-course on Russian views
of the U.S. which will feature an appearance by the
director of the Soviet Academy of Science's Institute
of the USA. The course - jointly sponsored by the de-
partment and the Center for Russian and East European
Studies - is entitled "American Culture: Views from the
Outside." It will consist of three lectures and a discus-
sion, Dec. 4 and 6 and Jan. 15 and 17, in the East
Conference Room of Rackham at 4 p.m. Students wish-
ing to enroll should do so at the Center for Russian
Studies, 200 Lane Hall.
Let's transfer to Transy
Robben Fleming, Allan Smith, Wilbur Pierpont, et.
al. take note: Transylvania University in Pennsylvania
has announced that they will not raise tuition next year.
In fact, students at Transy have the added security of
what is known as a "guaranteed tuition plan." What
it means is that entering freshmen are assured that
their tuition assessment will not be increased during
their four years at the school. Dr. Irvin Lunger, presi-
dent of Transy, says the school "is determined to hold
the line on tuition charges." Sounds nice to us!
Buses to Ypsi
The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA)
has given the go ahead for plans to open up bus lines
to Ypsilanti. The plan, which is slated to go into effect
Jan. 28, would include five busses - three running from
Arborland to Ypsi, and two looping around through Ypsi
Township - running at half hour intervals. The project-
ed cost of $140,000 would be born by AATA, Ypsi, Super-
ior and Ann Arbor Townships.

Kelley hits car dealers
State Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley yesterday accused 27
of 35 Motor City car dealers of dishonest and incompe-
tent service. He said a series of secret tests of dealers
for all four auto makers showed that only eight did
repairs honestly and.at a fair price. The survey, car-
ried out by the state and the Michigan Citizen's Lobby,
used cars with a "planted" defect - a faulty spark
plug. Kelley said that although a fair price for repairing
such a defect was roughly $10, prices charged by the
dealers ranged as high as $49.48 and averaged $20.32.
A spokesman for the Detroit Auto Dealers claimed a
"few bad apples" had made all the dealers look bad.

Pennsylvania sues the feds
The state of'Pennsylvania yesterday filed a $1 billion
lawsuit against the government, claiming federal offic-
ials failed to publicize the availability of flood insurance
to victims of Tropical Storm Agnes which hit Wilkes-
Barre and other Pennsylvania cities last year. The state
contends that the government is obligated under law
to publicize the availability of flood insurance and failed
to do so, resulting in massive property loss during the
flood. The class action suit also named a number of
major insurance companies as defendents.

Santa Claus isn't the only big

Bob Dylan, one of popular
music's living legends, will roll
into Ann Arbor like his proverbial
stone for a one-night stand with
The Band at Crisler Arena Feb. 2.
Although it's not yet "legally"
final, a spokesperson for UAC-Day-
star, local concert promoters, said
yesterday, "As far as we're con-
cerned there will be a date in
Crisler in February."
"We're in the midst now of ex-
changing contracts and filling out
the necessary forms."

1965, he performed at Pioneer High
School.
The upcoming Dylan-The Band
tour, covering 25 cities during Jan-
uary and February is Dylan's first
tour since 1966.
Dylan last toured with The
Hawks, which later became The
Band in their solo work.
Dylan has made few public ap-
pearances since then - at the
Bangladesh benefit (1971), on the
Isle of Wight near England (1970)
and at a Woody Guthrie Memor-
ial concert (1968).
The tour, which is expected to

gross about $4.5 million, is booked
into such major concert auditor-
iums as Madison Square Garden
in New York, Chicago's Interna-
tional Amphitheater and the For-
um in Los Angeles. There is spec-
ulation there will also be a live re-
cord from the tour released next
year.
Dylan's return to performing
comes as a surprise as it's been
three years since his last full al-
bum of new material, New Morn-
ing, and seven years since his
last tour.

Aide to
i ndicted
for lying
WASHINGTON (P) - Former
White House appointments secre-
tary Dwight Chapin ,was indicted
yesterday on four counts of lying
to the Watergatergrand jury about
his contacts with political saboteur
Donald Segretti.
Chapin, 32, was charged with
making false declarations under
oath last April 11. Among other
things, Chapin swore he gave Se-
gretti no instructions about, any
political candidate, an -indictment
said.
CHAPIN asked and was granted
a leave of absence from his job as
director of marketing planning for
Unted Air Lines in suburban Chi-
cago. The company indicated Cha-
pin will defend hmseilf aganst the
charges, which carry maximum
penalties of five years in jail and
a $10,000 fine on each of the in-
dictment's four counts.
There was no official reaction
from the White House. But presi-
dential press secretary Ronald
Ziegler, in a personal comment,
said the indictment "in no way
undercuts the presumption that
Dwight Chapin is innocent."
In other Watergate developments
yesterday:
* " Informed sources said the
White House has told federal in-
vestigators that full disclosure of a
still-secret project of the so-called
plumbers unit could endanger the
life of a foreign intelligence agent
working for the United States in-
side the Soviet Union. President
Nixon has said publicly that one of
the activities of the plumbers-who
were responsible for burglary of
the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psy-
chiatrist in 1971-can't be disclosed
without endangering national se-
curity.
* Special Watergate prosecutor
Leon Jaworski has asked Nixon to
turn over to a federal court four
additional tapes of White House
conversations revolving around the
Watergate scandal, he told the
court. He asked the court, mean-
while, to order the White House to
turn over all transcripts of sub-
poenaed Watergate tapes made by
Nixon's secretary, Rose Mary
Woods.

SGC condemns 'U
for use of 'quotas'
By DAN BIDDLE
The University has made tentative plans to cut Winter
term tuition by six per cent in accordance with a Regental
order to return some $1.08 million in excess fee revenue to
students.
A student representative of the Budget Priorities Com-
mittee announced the plan to cut tuition last night at the be-
ginning of a Student Government Council (SGC) regular
meeting.
The meeting ended four hours later when SGC approved a resolu-
tion indirectly condemning the University's pledge to meet a 1970 Black
Action Movement (BAM) demand for 10 per cent minority enrollment.
Budget committee member Jim Weinstein said Vice President for
Academic Affairs Allan Smith offered the plan to reduce tuition at the
committee's meeting earlier last night.

Dense smoke pours out of the windows of Taiyo Department Store in Kumamoto, Japan, after it caught
fire yesterday. The blaze claimed the lives of 99 and injured 86. Authorities expect to recover more
bodies when the search resumes today.
SENA TE BID REJECTED:
Campignspenlding ;bill
voted down by H1'ouse

In a draft proposal obtained by
The Daily last night, Smith cau-
tioned that his figures are "tenta-
tive" and that "there is still con-
siderable uncertainty inherent in
forecasting tuition income.
The rollback plan is expected to
take the form of a recommenda-
tion to the Regents at their meet-
ing next month, and will take ef-
fect pending Regental approval.
Smith's outline of the rollback,
will reduce:
-Winter term tuition for resi-
dent freshmen and sophomores
from $400 to, approximately $380;
-Non-resident fees in the same
category from $1300 to about $1220;
-In-state junior-senior fees from
$450 to $423;
-Non-resident tuition for upper-
classmen from $1400 to $1316.
Several budget committee mem-
bers objected to the plan on
grounds that students who paid
higher fees this term will not ben-
efit from the cutback if they fail
to enroll next semester.
Smith explained that the only
other alternative-a direct refund-
ing of excess fee money-would
involve astronomic administrative
expenses.
Hedadded that the rollback alone
will cost the University about
$20,000 in office work.
Weinstein said he and other
committee members agreed that
the rollback would be "about the
gest way to give the money back".
Smith, who had earlier described
a tuition cut as "highly unlikely
and impractical", could not be
reached for comment on his plan
as last night

Letuce
boycott'
continued,
By DAVID STOLL
The University's Housing Policy
Committee (HPC) voted yesterday
to continue a boycott of all non-
union lettuce in residence hall
cafeterias. The boycott is in sup-
port of the United Farm Workers
union.
The committee, which includes
student and faculty representatives
and Housing Director John Feld-
kamp, makes policy decisions for
all University-run housing.
IN MOVING yesterday to con-
tinue the boycott, the policy com-
mittee brushed aside an earlier
recommendation from the Univer-
sity Housing Council-an all-stu-
dent advisory panel-that the boy-
cott be lifted.
A majority of housing council
representatives voted last month
to lift the boycott arguing that it
was no longer supported by dorm
residents.
Paul Gustitus and David Lam-
bert, who sit on both the housing
council and the policy committee,
argued again yesterday that most
students oppose the boycott. Gus-
titus and Lambert represent the
"hill" dorms and central campus
dorms respectively.
t THE MAJORITY of those attend-
ing the meeting, including some
30 United Farm Workers sympa-
thizers, said students remain in
support of the boycott.
Housing Council President David
Faye cited a referendum at Alice
Lloyd Hall which showed students
favor the boycott six to one. Faye
also cited a referendum in this
fall's Student Government Council
elections which showed majority
support for the boycott.

WASHINGTON (A") - The House
yesterday rejected a Senate-passed
proposal for public financing of
presidential and congressional cam-
paigns.
The House voted 347-54 to reject
a Senate-passed amendment to a
bill to raise the public debt ceil-
ing, and sent the measure back to
the Senate for further considera-

tion.
H 0 U S E LEADERS expressed
willingness to go along with public
financing of presidential elections
if the reference to congressional
races was deleted.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)
said Democratic leaders of Co:I-
gress agreed yesterday to support
such a compromise.

WASHINGTON (A') - The energy
