Dylan delay
Those waiting with bated breath for news about the
Bob Dylan concert will have to wait a little longer. Has-
sles with the athletic department and silence from rock
impressario Bill Graham in New York are behind the
delay. Information is not expected until this weekend
at the earliest according to spokespersons at UAC.
Too young
The Supreme Court yesterday affirmed a lower court
ruling that barred 15 year-old Sonia Yaco, a local high
school student, from running for a seat on the Ann Ar-
bor Board of Education. Yaco ran for the seat in the
spring of 1972 on the Human Rights Party ticket. Her
petition was denied by the school system on the grounds
that she was a minor, a decision upheld by yesterday's
court ruling. Despite her underage status, Yaco managed
to pick up some 1200 votes in her school board contest.
Silver lining
The devaluations of the U. S. dollar that have taken
place over the past two years are now having some posi-
tive repercussions according to Business Prof. Ross Wil-
helm. Wilhelm notes that as a result of the devaluation

ca than ever before. Foreign investment in U. S. com-
panies, including the actual building of new plants here,
has also jumped sharply.

Sanitation success
Americans have more confidence in the men who pick
up their garbage than they do in their police, their
churches, and yes, even in their President according to
the latest Harris Poll. Published yesterday in the Wash-
ington Post, the poll indicated that only 18 per cent of
those questioned put "a great deal" of confidence in the
White House. Garbagemen, on the other hand, received
a whopping 52 per cent approval rating placing them
second only to doctors who managed 57 per cent. Given
the President's reputation for sharp political instincts,
we should not be surprised to see a garbageman in the
Cabinet some time in the near future.
Rock orgy
Once content to merely destroy their instruments, the
rock band "The Who" has apparently moved on to big-
ger and better things. The band was arrested in Mon-
treal yesterday after they allegedly wrecked their hotel
suite. Though they consented to pay damage costs to the
tune of $6,000 the group may still face criminal charges.
The hotel management was brought to the scene by irate
guests who had complained of the tremendous noise,
especially the crashing of glass.
Edgar honored
Taking time off from the pressing matters of State,
the House of Representatives yesterday voted to create
a medal honoring the late J. Edgar Hoover for his serv-
ice as director of the FBI. Passed by a voice vote was
a resolution that read, "During the 48 years of his tenure,
he changed the agency from one marked by scandal and
corruption into a model of investigative efficiency and
integrity." The legislation was proposed by Rep. Wilbur
Mills (D-Ark.) chairman of the Ways and Means Com-

Burglary and conspiracy charges against former White
House plumber Egil Krogh were dropped yesterday by
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gordon Ringer. Ac-
cording to the prosecutor, the charges, which stem from
a break-in at the offices of Daniel Ellsberg's psychia-
trist, were dropped because Krogh had earlier agreed
to plead guilty to a lesser charge of violating the civil
rights of the psychiatrist. lie is expected to testify in
the upcoming trials of fellow plumber David Young and

Denied access
to the President
By AP and Reuter
President Nixon's energy chief, John Love, resigned yester-
day in apparent protest against the President's refusal to
introduce gasoline rationing to deal with the country's growing
fuel shortage.
The Denver Post quoted Love as saying he was resining
because he did not want to stay in Washington at a "super-
fluous job." In a copyrighted story, Love was quoted as saying
"it's been difficult to try to do anything meaningful and even
to get the attention of the President.

Residents of the Old Order Amish community near Oelwein, Iowa, are unpreturbed by the energy crisis, inflation, threats of fuel rationing and
lower highway speeds. They walk or ride in horse-drawn buggies, use wood for heating and cooking, and burn only kerosene for their lamps.
Here a child walks down a country road to a one-room Amish school where other pupils have already arrived by buggy. Amish leaders say
their schools won't close because of a fuel shortage.
VOTE 6-4:
Ci*ty Council redscinds kruling
Tri'bal Funwiding contract affirmed

City Council last night rescinded the city's revenue
sharing contract with Tribal Funding, charging the
organization with contract violations.
Last March the city agreed to finance the Rain-
bow People's Party affiliated Tribal Funding organi-
zation in exchange for various youth-oriented serv-
ices. That agreement has now been terminated.
THE CITY formerly had contracted with Tribal
Funding under the federal revenue sharing progrart,
to provide financing for services including 24 indoor-
concerts, a community ballroom, a food co-operative,
and the Psychedelic Rangers.
However, a vituperative and extended City Council
session last night, despite groans and catcalls from
members of the packed audience, saw the downfall of
that contract in a six to four vote.
A written communication from M a y o r James
Stephenson, at the beginning of the meeting, sum-
marized the position of Council Republicans on Tribal
Funding's alleged violation of contract.
THE MAYOR, who wasn't in attendance, but pre-
ferred to make his views known from a written memo
while attending a mayor's conference in Puerto Rico,
argued that Tribual Funding has committed three
legally suspects acts.
First, and primary in the mayor's mind, is the
fact that the organization has not yet put on any of
the 24 concerts originally agreed to.
Tribal Funding spokespersons maintain that they
haven't been able to locate a ballroom, which is pre-
requisite to presenting the concerts.

High Court rules
joni Seattle case
Supreme Court upheld yesterday
the right of states to impose a one-
year residency requirement for
tuition purposes at publicly financ-
ed colleges and universities.
It is common practice to charge
higher tuition to out-of-state stu-
dents at state colleges and univer-
sities. About 120 University of
Washington s t u d e n t s sued to
change the situation there.
Court affirmed a 2-1 ruling on
June 20 by a special three-judge
federal court in Seattle.
Justices William Brennan and
Thurgood Marshall voted to hear
the case but four votes are neces-
sary to place a case on the Su-
preme Court docket.
The state had agreed that all
but two of the University of Wash-
ington students had established a
bona fide residence in the state.
THE STUDENTS contended that
under the constitutional guarantee
of "equal protection of the laws"
all residents should be treated the
same, regardless of the length of
time they had been in the state.
The difference in tuition is about
$1,000 a year.
The supreme court in 1971 up-
held a similar requirement in Min-
LAST TERM, it struck down a
Connecticut practice that obliged
an out-of-state student to continue
in that status during the entire
time he attended a state institution.

NIXON SAID he accepted Love's
resignation with deep regret.
He said his former energy chief
had done "an outstanding job un-
der difficult circumstances in im-
plementing the positive actions
taken thus far by the administra-
tion to meet the energy crisis."
The President had planned to
announce yesterday the creation of
a new super agency to oversee
energy problems. But the an-
nouncement was delayed until to-
day-apparently because of a split
within the administration over the
I need for gas rationing.
LOVE, WHO resigned as Repuk-
lican governor of Colorado last
July to become director of the
President's Energy Policy Office,
will be succeeded as Nixon's
energy czar by William Simon,
deputy treasury secretary.
Simon, an opponent of gasoline
rationing, will head the new Fed-
eral Energy Administration being
created by Nixon to coordinate all
energy policies.
Love's deputy, Charles Dibona,
also resigned, administration offi-
cials said.

Simon was interviewed briefly
moments after the White House
formally announced Love's resigna-
tion. The nation's new energy czar
said he will press for a decision on
gasoline rationing "in the very near
future, and I emphasize very."

U considers
dorm rates
The University Housing Depart-
ment is currently studying a pro-
posal under which dorm rates
would be set by a student-run
policy committee rather than by
the Regents.
The proposal comes in the form
of a recommendation from a spe-
cial subcommittee of the Housing
P o l i c y Committee (H.PC) that,
changes be made in dorm leases
granting control over a wide range
of housing matters to HPC.
HPC-AN 11-MEMBER, student-
dominated board-is currently em-
powered to make recommendations
on housing policy to the housing
department and the Regents.
Under this proposal, however,
HPC's hand would be considerably
strengthened by a clause in leases
granting them "policy-making au-
thority" on a wide range of hous-
ing matters and stating that rents
"shall be set" by HPC.
The Regents would be allowed to
alter HPC decisions only when
necessary to "meet minimally ac-
ceptable operating expense," to
"safeguard health, safety and wel-
fare," to prevent "hazardous or
illegal activities," or to "comply
with legally incurred obligations of
the University."

Big time ninet
m a s m r eeBy MARTIN PORTER

The University Council, a stu-
dent - faculty advisory body, will
meet tonight to discuss the pros
and cons of establishing an inde-
pendent campus police force.
The proposal of an independent
police force of 164 officers posses-
sing legal police authority on cam-
pus, was recently proposed as a
resi'lt of a $17,000 study prepared
by the International Association of
Chiefs of Police (IACP). The of-
ficers would be paid by the Univer-
sity and concerned only with Uni-
versity affairs.

-Will an independent Univer-
sity police force need its own mari-
juana policy;
-Should the force be armed;
-Will the force draw men from
the city police force and leave it
stripped of its younger, more en-
ergetic men; and,
-Will the independent campus
force cause a duplication of ef-
forts instead of streamlining the
operation, as it is intended to do?
THE PROPOSED police force ex-
pansion would cose the University
ndditional $700,000 in security
