Your local police department came through again
with a brand new shipment of 28 shiny police cars.
The cars, which cost $3398 each, are beginning to. arrive
and will go into service as soon as the old ones run
up too much mileage. The city had to buy the cars
because of a clause in the policemen's contract which
says they don't have to drive cars that have more than
42,000 miles - which for a police car is a little less
than one year's work. The cars were purchased under
last year's budget.
The joy of psoriasis
No flaking and itching for University biomedical in-
vestigators John Voorhees and Elizabeth Duell. The
pair, both professors in the Department of Dermatology,
received the International Taub Award for Psoriasis Re-
search. The award carries a $1,000 honorarium and is
given periodically when it is determined that a signifi-
cant advance has been made in the understanding
of psoriasis. Voorhees and Duell are conducting a
long-term investigation on the molecular pathology of
abnormal cell growth which results in psoriasis and
In the reel world
Patrons at Thursday night's 11 o'clock showing of the
skin flick "The Devil in Miss Jones" were treated to an
exhibition of real skin when a streaker leaped down
the steps of the Natural Science Aud. and hopped across
the lab table with arms outstretched in the infamous
victory sign. He returned for an encore to a standing
ovation by the crowd, and then leaped back up the
steps to join a clothed confederate.
In yesterday's Daily we mistakenly reported Martha.
Petit as a candidate for Congress on the Socialist Labor
Party ticket. She is in fact a candidate on the Socialist
Worker. Party line. Also in yesterday's paper was a
mistake in the Graduation Graduate Employes Or-
ganization (GEO). Next year's officers will be elected
by the total membership of GEO in Sept., not by the
steward's council as reported. The interim summer
officers will be elected by the council on April 18.

A federal grand jury yesterday indicted the American
Ship Building Co. and its board chairman, accusing
them of making illegal contributions to the campaigns of
President Nixon and influential members of Congress,
the Watergate special prosecutor announced. The com-
pany was charged with one count of conspiracy and
one cunt of illegal contributions. The company's board
chairman, George Steinbrenner, was charged with one
count of conspiracy, five counts of violating campaign
contributions laws, two counts of helping individuals give
false statements to the FBI,four counts of obstruction
of justice and two counts of obstructing a criminal in-
vesigation. Conviction on all counts could subject Stein-
brenner to a maximum sentence of 55 years in prison and
a fine of $85,000, the prosecutor's office said. The com-
pany could face a maximum fine of $20,000.
The executive board of Little League Baseball, Inc.,
unanimously voted yesterday to appeal to the New Jersey
Supreme Court an order that girls be allowed to com-
pete with boys this year on the baseball diamond. Af-
ter a day-long meeting, the board directed its ,ttorneys,
to proceed immediately with its appeal of a civil rights
order concerning the use of girls by a tittle League
in Hoboken, N.J. The order directed that if there is
any Little League competition in the Garden State this
year, girls must be allowed to participate. The Little
League board, while taking no further stand on whe-
ther girls should play, simply issued the brief state-
ment that the civil rights order would be appealed. How-
ever, a spokesperson for the league indizated he did
not feel girls would compete with boys in any sanctioned
leagues this year in the United States.

considerable attention from Japanese censors, who allowed its inclusion in Wyeth's exhibition that opened
yesterday only after an accompaying catalogue depiction was changed.

WASHINGTON (Reuter) -
President Nixon yesterday de-
cided to campaign for Repub-
lican candidate John Sparling
in Michigan next week and
face a risky test of public reac-
tion to his own Watergate and
tax problems. As party leaders
there squabbled over whether
Nixon's presence would help or
hurt, the White House an-
nounced he would fly to Michi-
gan April 10 to campaign for
John Sparling, who is hoping
to win a House of Representa-
tives' seat that has been Re-
publican for the past 42 years.

"We have won our day in court against the Re-
gents", a jubilant Elmer White, attorney for the Chip-
pewa, Ottowa and Potawatomy Tribe said.
The controversial case initially stems from the
Treaty of Fort Meigs, drafted and signed in 1817. Most
of the articles of the Treaty dealt with cash sale of
Indian lands; however in Article 16 the tribes con-
veyed 4,000 acres of land to the University.
No money was paid for this land, but in exchange
the University agreed to educate the children of the
tribes signing the treaty.
"The University put a promise in writing to edu-
cate Indian children - the question is simply whe-
ther or not this is going to be enforced," White ex-
"Judge Edward Deake rendered a very scholarly
and tightly reasoned opinion in denying an immediate
ruling to the Regents. Now we have won the right
to have a trial," he noted.

In the suit, the Regents had claimed that Article
16 of the treaty did not create an obligation as a
matter of law.
Deake believes that article 16 is ambiguous in
meaning and depending upon the evidence presented
at the trial, it could be interpreted to support either
the plaintiffs' claim or the defendant's.
"SOME SAY THAT even at this point we have
been in court too long," Attorney White commented,
"but those who learn of this case generally agree
with me that the complexity and power of the ideas
and forces joined here require that the court move
slowly but surely toward its responsibility of insur-
ing that justice is done."
At the time of the initial filing of this class action
lawsuit, August 1971, less than 20 native American
students were enrolled in the University.

SGC elections set

Congressman Marvin Esch (R-Ann Arbor) said he
was delaying his decision on impeachment of Presi-
dent Nixon until all the facts - notably those of the
House Judiciary Committee .- are in, during a meet-
ing here yesterday.
"I will reserve judgment until the house Judiciary
Committee completes its findings," Esch announced
yesterday at a meeting organized by the Ann Arbor
Committee to Impeach Nixon.
"This particular vote is not based on popularity
or lack of popularity," Esch explained, "Or even if
most people want him impeached, but on the facts
turned up by the House Judiciary Committee."
LIKEWISE, IT will be the Committee's definition
of a "high crime or misdemeanor" that Esch will use
to judge those findings. But if the President should
refuse to comply with a Committee subpoena, Esch
said he would consider this an impeachable offense.
Asked why Nixon has refused to fully co-operate
thus far with the Watergate investigators, Esch re-
fused to give an opinion, saying that as an elected
