Poker marathon
Apparently imitating the recent wave of cornball stu-
dent events, residents of East Quad's fourth floor Hay-
den established a new campus record for marathon
poker-playing at midnightSunday, concluding a game
that lasted without interruption for 100 hours. Fifteen
participants took part in total, with from three to six
playing at all times. Players said they knew of no world
record for marathon poker, but they thought it highly
unlikely that their session was the longest ever.
Guidelines issued
Assistant to the Vice President for Academic Affairs
Charles Allmand yesterday issued a set of guidelines for
University personnel supervisors with regard to the
Graduate Employes Organization (GEO) elections slated
for April 1, 2 and 3. The guidelines authorize supervisors
to prohibit employes from engaging in organizing during
working hours, express their own opinions on unioniza-
tion, and clarify misleading statements made by the
union. Supervisors are prohibited, however, from attend-
ing union meetings, observing who enters union meet-
ings, threatening staff members who engage in union
activities, or offering special benefits to discourage
New ride board
The Union basement's ride co-ordinating system got a
face lift yesterday when UAC representatives replaced
the messy old ride board, which worked on a system of
paper sheets, with another board featuring printed cards
on hooks, listing people offering and seeking rides.
TA's honored
Ten University teaching assistants received Distin-
guished Teaching awards yesterday at an awards lun-
cheon ceremony. The winners, selected for teaching ex-
cellence,. were Marthalee Barton, English; Gilles Davig-
non, industrial and operations engineering; Timothy Ev-
ans, biological chemistry; William Freeland, zoology;
John Hoogland, zoology; Elizabeth Judd, English; Robert
Simpson, natural resources; and Barbara Tyler, classi-
cal studies. Each award carries a $500 stipend.
H.S. busing to be discussed
The Board of Education has scheduled a special meet-
ing tonight at 7:30 at the Clague Middle School to act
on a proposal to alleviate overcrowding at Huron High
by busing high school students living on North Campus.
The. board is considering seven alternatives to the bus-
ing plan, and School Superintendent Harry Howard
claims it must take action quickly to avoid scheduling
difficulties for the students.
'Uncle' killers sought
Southfield police said yesterday they have no clues or
suspects in the apparent slaying of Harvey Leach, a
prominent businessman once described as the "genius of
the American furniture industry." Leach, chairman of
the board of Joshua Doore, Inc., was best known for his
firm's TV ad, "You've got an uncle in the furniture
business." His body was found in the trunk of his lux-
ury automobile in a Southfield parking lot Sunday, one
hour before his scheduled marriage to Beverly Adelson.

The five month old Arab oil
boycott, imposed on the U.S. as a
political weapon to win favorable
peace terms in the Mideast, ends

states said the oil ministers of the
Arab countries would review their

about 10 to 14 per cent of its oil

said it would take between six and
eight weeks for Arab oil to reach

"There are two significant ques-

The Arab oil ministers had said
they intended to keep their crude-

but no word was forthcoming on
whether production would be re-

Unless they raise the production

proper and obligatory
WASHINGTON (R) - U. S. District Judge Johrr Sirica or-
dered the Watergate grand jury's Nixon report turned over
to the House impeachment inquiry yesterday, noting that
"it draws no accusatory conclusions."
Sirica said he had no other choice, declaring that delivery
to the House Judiciary Committee is "eminently proper, and
indeed, obligatory."
The judge said "it seems incredible that grand jury matters should
. . .be unavailable to the House of Representatives in a proceeding
of so great import as an impeachment investigation," when similar
reports often go to police investi-
gations and disbarment proceed-
"We deal in a matter of the most
critical moment to the nation, an
impeachment investigation inv lv-
ing the President of the Urniteda
States," Sirica said in a 22-page
The judge allowed lawyers for
the seven men indicted March 1
in the Watergate cover-up two dadbs
to appeal the ruling.
Sirica received the report and
recommendation that it be placed
in the hands of the Judiciary Com-P
mittee at the time of the indict-_

Happy Birthday, Judge Sirica
U.S. District Chief Judge John Sirica (left) receives a ship's clock from Judge George Hart during a ju-
dicial conference luncheon yesterday in Washington. Sirica, who is 70-years-old today, must step down
as chief judge; he will be replaced by Hart. Sirica will remain on the bench as a jurist, and will retain
authority in the current Watergate trial.

Wilson said he will file an appeal
by tomorrow afternoon. He would
not discuss the matter further.
SIRICA SAID "the person on
whom the report focuses, the Pres-
ideit of the United States, has not
objected to its release to the com-

only indirectly."

A standing room only crowd of
over 300 watched as City Council
last night voted 6-5 to defer the
Human Rights Party (HRP) rape
package for one week and directed
City Administrator Sylvester Mur-
ray to study the HRP proposal.
The motion created a special
session of Council for next Mon-
day-a public hearing-since us-
ually the last meeting of the month
is an executive session where no
business is formally transacted by
the council.
Murraywas further directed to
meet with all parties interested
and concerned with the rape pro-
posal and to come up with fund-
ing proposals for inclusion into
the 1974-75 fiscal city budget.
THE MOVE - viewed as vic-
tory by the crowd who cheered at
its passage, was accomplished by
a rare break in strict party-line
voting with Republicans John Mc-
Cormick and Mayor James Steph-
enson voting in favor of the resolp-
The motion which passed was a
substitute resolution, replacing an
earlier proposal by Councilman
William Colburn (R-Third Ward)
to defer the original four point
rape package offered by HRP to
Murray indefinitely.
The original HRP plan, devel-
oped in cooperation with the Wo-
men's Crisis Center, is based on
four main points:

The issue was brought up when

LSA faculty began their discussion of the Report of the Commission
on Graduation Requirements in yesterday's special meeting.
Dean Rhodes opened the meeting with three suggestions, laying the
groundwork for further discussions.
Rhodes proposed that the faculty:
(-) consider the report "deliberately and carefully, but not hastily,"
and not worry if the discussion extends "over a number of meetings;"
(-) "examine the document page by page, recommendation by
recommendation, section by section," and "adopt each section in prin-

that question from all my cam-
paign literature," McGee replied,
"I support it."
Joyce Hannum, McGee's Repub-
lican opponent, objected.
"Now wait a minute, Colleen. I
remember you came out against
rent control in the interview we
had at the Ann Arbor News last
March 12," Hannum charged.
"That's not true," McGee coun-
tered. "I said I had some reser-
vations with the plan as it is
presently constituted, butthat I
intend to vote for it in the elec-

interview that McGee "agrees with
the purposes of rent control, but

The discussion was only part of
a candidates' debate for First and

The Senate Assembly yesterday called on the State Legislature to

said the proposed salary increase was insufficient.
