Dope notes
A South Quad resident lost $120 late Monday night
when he attempted to buy five dollars worth of hashish
from a pair of pushers. When the victim took out his
money to buy the dope, the pair pulled guns, took all of
his money and ran. Police believe the pair have been
responsible for a recent rash of robberies in the dorms.

Gold prices soar
Gold reached an "unbelievable" $181.50 an ounce on
the London market yesterday in an unchecked splurge
of\ speculation. Gold prices on the big London bullion
exchange opened $5 higher and quickly rose to $181.50
an ounce before stabilizing at the opening rate of $175
in mid-afternoon.
Pay raise
Rebel Ethiopian army units have developed a new tac-
tic for backing their demands for a pay increase. Unof-
ficial sources say that the units yesterday took over
the country's second largest city, Asmara. The city of

est city and capital.

Protective reaction
The tense state of police-community relations tool a
bizarre twist in Chicago yesterday, but one cop re-
sponded to the incident in fine form. Patrolman Carl
Brader was putting a parking ticket on the windshield
of a car when two massive, wolflike dogs startled him
with a barrage of barking from inside the car. React-
ing instantly to the loud noise, Brader pulled out his
service revolver and opened fire. According to police,
he shot himself in his right leg.

hopes for
By AP and Reuter
DAMASCUS-Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger arrived here last
night hopeful of getting a list of
Israeli war prisoners and generat-
ing movement toward Syrian-Is-
raeli troop disengagement.
Israel has demanded a list of
the some 100 prisoners held in
Syria as a precondition to par-
ticipation introop withdrawal talks
on the Golan Heights-the objec-
tive of Kissinger's current Middle
East peace mission.
Late last night, Israeli Foreign
Minister Abba Eban made clear
thatmmuch depends on the answers
Kissinger brings with him from
Damascus on the possibility of
opening negotiations between the
two nations.
"WE SHALL expect to hear if
Syria has overcome the obstacles
to negotiation represented by its
attitude to the prisoners of war
and toward the provisions of the
Geneva Convention," Eban told a
conference of the American Jewish
Syrian officials have stated that
they would be willing to hand over
the list if Israel agreed to with-
draw to pre-1973 ceasefire lines
andto let more than 20,000 refu-
gees return to homes on the Golan
Besides these 20,000 who fled
during the fighting four- months
ago, Syria estimates there are
about 15,000 refugees who left the
Heights during the 1967 war.
FEW DETAILS emerged from
Kissinger's talks in London with
P r i m e Minister Edward Heath,
Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Doug-
las-Home a n d Energy Secretary
Secretary Lord Carrington during
his stopover yesterday. However,
Kissinger indicated he had some
advance notice that Syria may be
ready to meet Israel's demand for
the list of Israeli prisoners.
"I hope that in Damascus we
can begin progress toward getting
peace started and the disengage-
ment of troops between Syria and
Israel," Kissinger said. "We con-
sider this the key problem in the
Middle East right now."
IT IS UNCLEAR whether De-
fense Minister Moshe Dayan, who
played a key role in the Israeli-
Egyptian disengagement t a 1 k s,
would figure in the team to meet
The uncertainty stems from Da-
yan's announcement last week that
he would not join the minority
government being set up by Prime
Minister Golda Meir.
A statement from a source close
to the defense minister appeared
to indicate that he would in fact
be willing to take part if approach-
ed by the prime minister.

White House hardens
WASHINGTON (A) - The special prosecutor's staff has
decided that any evidence of presidential involvement in the
Watergate scandal should go to the House impeachment in-
quiry rather than a grand jury, it was learned yesterday.
The decision, reached after months of study and debate,
was disclosed after President Nixon said Monday night that he
had rejected a grand jury request for his testimony.
Meanwhile, lawyers for the President said yesterday that no state

was outlined in a brief filed in
D.C. Superior Court. The court is
considering whether the President
must testify in a case now pending
in Los Angeles against former
White House adviser John Ehrlich-
Also yesterday, the Washington
Post said Herbert Kalmbach, for-
mer personal attorney to Presi-
dent Nixon, has given Watergate
prosecutors an accounting of
about $6 million in secret 1970 and
1972 campaign contributions and
The Post quoted reliable sources
as saying the money came from
two secret funds. One of the funds,
nearly $2 million, was used during
the 1972 Nixon campaign to fin-
ance undercover political work,
the Post said.
quest that he appear before the
grand jury, Nixon said, "I didyof-
fer, of course, to respond to any
interrogatories that the special
prosecutor might want to submit
or to meet with him personally
and to answer questions and he
indicated that he did not want to
proceed in that way."
Sources close to the investiga-
tion said the request for presi-
dential testimony at the Water-
gate grand jury probe was made
at the insistence of the grand jur-
ors and that unless they continue
to insist, no effort will be made to
force Nixon to testify.
The apparent reason, the sources
added, was that Special Prosecu-
tor Leon Jaworski finally had con-
cluded that the proper forum for
evidence pertaining directly to the
President was the House Judiciary
Committee rather than a grand
jury. The sources gave no indica-
tion whether any evidence against
the President exists.
WHITE HOUSE lawyers rejected
the California subpoena on the
basis of precedent "In the 187
years since our Constitution was
adopted no court, federal or state,
has held that the President of the
United States can be compelled to

ward speaks on 'futuring'

"I'm just a mild-mannered reporter for a great
"metropolitan broadcasting system, said Jonathan
eWard, introducing himself to a sparse Future
Worlds lecture crowd in Hill Auditorium yesterday.
i Ward is a futurist, known for his week-day "Fu-
ture File" radio program on CBS. The program
rfeatures interviews with people involved in and
interested in the future.
"I TALK to weirdos," Ward said. "It's bemuse-
ment five times a week. I love the show because
. there are no answersand you're never wrong. If
Syou predict something is going to happen in six
million years, you're not going to be around to be
rproven wrong."
"Maybe the future shouldn't be considered a
}noun. Maybe it should be a verb," suggested Ward. J
*c"We have been 'futuring' for. a long time."
"Futuring is a process of anticipating, or try-
Sigto build and understand possibilities and work ;r>':
"rtowards them, defined Ward.
There are different methods of "futuring" ac-
cording to Ward. "There is guessing and expertr:
-uessin- and Delnhi" he said.

Despite protests by local environ-
mentalists, city c lo t h i n g stores
presently sell winter coats and
jackets lined or trimmed with the
fur of North American wolves, in
probable violation of state law.
An undercover survey conducted
last month by volunteers for the
local F u n d for Animals office
found the disputed garments on
the racks of several clothing
stores around the city including
two stores doing a heavy student
business, The Bivouac and Sam's
A FOLLOW-UP inspection by
The Daily last week showed a
large n u m b e r of wolf-trimmed
coats remainingon the racks in
The Bivouac, and a half dozen re-
mainingin Sam's.
According to Lee Kvarnberg of
the Washtenaw County Humane
Society, Jacobson's pulled its wolf
fur items off the racks after he
registered a protest.
In the other stores implicated by
the Fund for Animals check, only
two remaining wolf items were
found. However, the wolf fur short-
age may be more indicative of the
end of the winter sale season than
of store response to environmen-
talists' pressure.
A STATE LAW enacted last year
expressly 'forbids the sale within

40 degrees below zero.
None of the retailers interviewed,
however, say they plan to continue
dealing in wolf fur items. The pro-
prietor of Sam's Store maintains
that only synthetic furs will be
sold there in the future.
ED DAVIDSON, owner of Bi-
vouac, the city store with the most
extensive collection of the furred

garments on the racks, says his
manufacturer and wholesaler, I.
Speiwak and Sons of New York,
has specifically informed him that
he is in volation of no law in
selling their wolf fur. But David-
son claims he will stop selling the
coats if the state attorney gen-
