Nixon protest
No sooner did Mr. Nixon finalize his plans to visit the
Wolverine state this week than the folks at the Ann Arbor
"Committee to Impeach Nixon" headquarters got on the
stick and announced plans for another protest. Dan
Ruben, who helped organize last month's protest in Chi-
cago, said that the committee is looking for both pro-
testers and cars to put them in. If you would like to
offer your services in either of these departments, call
665-6200 or 662-6671, and a cheerful committee worker
will rope you into service. Nixon is expected in Saginaw
Wednesday.
News editor dies
David Tefft, news editor of The Ann Arbor News, died
yesterday of a heart attack. Tefft, who was 57, had
worked for the News since 1941, first as editor of the
paper's farm, garden and outdoor coverage, next on the
sports staff, and finally as news editor beginning in 1962.
"He had one interest in life," according to Daily type-
setter Merlyn Lavey, a former News employe "That
was getting the news to everybody every day."

Love story
While the press and the present Administration may
not exactly be on cordial terms, the fourth estate has at
least one fan. "The press saved me from an asylum,"
said Martha Mitchell, wife of former Atty. Gen. John
Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell was back in Washington for a
week's stint as co-hostess on a local television talk
show. She said she doesn't mind being ribbed about her
phone calls to repoyrters. "I want to say from the bot-
tom of my heart that i would not be sitting here today
i t weren't for the press," she said.
To your health
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Rep. Wilbur
Mills (D-Ark.) introduced a new national health insur-
ance plan to cover all Americans yesterday at a Wash-
ington press conference. The plan, which would be
financed through employer and employe payroll taxes,
differs chiefly from President Nixon's plan in that, while
the service is voluntary in Nixon's plan, it is compul-
soryin the Kennedy-Mills program. Employes would
pay a maximum ,of $200 a year for health insurance if
the worker earned up to $20,000. Employers would pay a
maximum of $600 for each worker. Mills predicted that
Congress would pass the program this year. Other in-
siders, however, viewed the prediction as optimistic.
'Out' of Asia?
While Rep. Mills was prognosticating a health care
victory, Democratic leader Mike Mansfield had some
predictions of his own yesterday. Claiming that the Sen-
ate has "had Southeast Asia up to their necks," Mans-
field predicted that the Senate would join the House in
barring stepped up U. S. aid for Southeast Asia. "With
our men out, they want out all the way," said Mans-
field.
Dissidents released
Dissident. sources reported yesterday that Soviet au-
thdrities have released two political dissenters from
Leningrad psychiatric hospitals. The two-Vladmir
Borisov, a young electrician, and art critic Viktor Fain-
berg-Were renowned for several hunger strikes, one
lasting over 70 days, to protest their confinement. Boris-
ov, who was detained after signing a protest letter to
the United Nations, was reportedly released "afew days
ago." Borisov, who was detained without trial after tak-
ing part in 'a demonstration against the Warsaw Pact of
invasion of Czechloslovakia in 1968, was allegedly re-
leased at the end of last year.

Korean arrests
Several days after South Korea's government an-
nounced a maximum penalty of death for revolting stu-
dents, 32 people have been ordered to stand trial for
alleged espionage activities in Seoul. The group, alleg-
edly working for North Korea, were arrested by the
South Korean Central Intelligence Agency in Febru-
ary. They have reportedly operated in two rings for
the past 10 years, trying to form a revolutionary group
among intellectuals, armed forces officers and politic-
ians. The group indicted yesterday includes four univer-
sity and high school teachers, two clergymen and a
former national assemblyman.

Taylor claims authority
lies with Commissioners

By TONY SC hWARTZ
County Commissioner Eliza-
beth Taylor said yesterday
she believes Sheriff Fred Pos-.
till acted without proper
authority in firing t h r e e
staff members of the Washte-
naw County Jail Inmate
Rehabilitation Program last
week.
"My opinion is that the
County Board of Commission-
ers has the ultimate authority
in grants," said Taylor, a
Democrat who is chairwoman
of the subcommittee which
handles federal grants to the
mounty, including the one to
the jail program.s
IN A RELATED develoment,
the coordinators of two groups
which have worked in the jail's
educational p r o g r a m withdrew
their support yesterday, saying
Postill's actions had "seriously
jeopa'rdized the effectiveness of the
program.g
The two groups, Project Com-
munity and Project Outreach, had
provided the jail's educational pro-
gram with volunteer tutors and
auxiliaries. The coordinators, Brian
O'Donnell and Susan Sholender, in-
cluded their charges in a letter to
Postill made public yesterday.
The two actions added further
fuel to a controversy which has
been brewingsince last Wednesday
when Sheriff Fred Postill fired
three program staff members and
accepted the resignation of Jail
Administrator Paul Wasson in an
apparent dispute over authority.
ACCORDING to Taylor, "We
(the County Commissioners) are
the ones that sign the grant con-
tract, not the Sheriff's Depart-
ment. We signed a legally binding
contract with the Law Elnforce-
ment Assistance Administration
(LEAA) and if anything goes
wrong, we can be cited for breach
of contract."
Neither Postill enor Administra-
tive Aide Laird Harris could be
reached for comment yesterday,
but both have consistently main-
tainedthat ultimate authority over
the program, including hiring and
firing, rests with the Sheriff's De-
partment.
The Inmate Rehabilitation Pro-
gram is funded by an LEAA grant
which comes' through a division of
the Office of Criminal Justice in
Lansing. Taylor said she had been
in contact with a member of the
office during the week, and that
her view has been corroborated.
TAYLOR ALSO said she believed,
on the same basis, that Postill did
not have the authority 'to name his
undersheriff, James Spickard, as

30 defy
Wrig ley's
injunction
By JEFF DAY
Some 30 protesters defied a court
order yesterday and continued to
picket at Wrigley's store at Sta-
dium and Washtenaw Aves., urg-
ing shoppers to boycott non-United
Farm Workers (UFW) picked
grapes and Gallo wine.
Police were called to the scene
after the UFW supporters, includ-
ing State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) and City Councilwo-
man - elect Kathy Kozachenko
(HRP-Second Ward), refused to
heed the court injunction, which
limits picketing to two persons.
NO ARRESTS were made.
"As far as I'm concerned, un-
less they break a city law there
are no problems out there," Police
Cantain Donald Carnahan said.
The order forbidding picketing by
more than two persons was handed
down Monday by Oakland County
Circuit Judge John O'Brien. Al-
though the order applies to the
entire state, it is not clear that
local governments are obliged to
enforce it, according to Bullard.
"IT'S A VERY questionable tem-
porarv restrainingorder," Bullard
said. "It's an order made without
statements from the United Farm
Workers, which appears to restrict
First Amendment rights.
"The order came down in Oak-
land County, and it's very 'ques-
tionable that it can apply all over

'gift'

differs from Nixon'

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - P r e s i d e n t
Nixon's former personal lawyer,
Herbert Kalmbach, has reportedly
sworn that C. G. Rebozo told him
he passed on parts of a $100,000
Howard Hughes campaign contri-
bution to the President's private
secretary and one of his brothers.
The Washington Post said yes-
terday that Kalmbach told the Sen-
ate Watergate Committee and
the Watergate special prosecutor's

office that the money went either
as a gift or a loan to Rose Mary
Woods and Donald Nixon.
KALMBACH's alleged story con-
tradicts Nixon's account of the
controversial $100,000 campaign
contribution by multi - millionaire
Howard Hughes.
President Nixon has said public-
ly that after his close friend,
"Bebe" Rebozo received the $100,-
000, in cash he kept it in a safe

Israel, Syria clash

By The Associated Press
Israel forces opened fire on Syrian troops on the Golan Heights
front yesterday morning and used warplanes for the first time since
the October cease-fire, United Nations truce observers reported.
Israeli air force jets were called in for a second time in the after-
noon to strike Syrian infiltrators who attacked an Israeli position on Mt.
Herman, the Israel military command said.
ISRAEL SAID it acted in both cases after the Syrians crossed the
Golan truce line hours before the Passover holiday began and attacked
