Bye bye!
It's that time of the term again when all dedicated
Dailyites turn their backs on The Daily and open their
cobweb-covered texts in an attempt to pass the term with
relatively decent grades. The Daily stops publication
temporarily today . . but don't grieve so! We'll be back
May 7 to grace your breakfast table once more. May
the news of the world stop until then.
Michiganensian
Michiganensian, the University yearbook, nears the
end of its first week of sales with only approximately
300 unsold copies left. Designed around the theme, "The
University of Michigan as the Great American Novel,"
the Michiganensian opens with an ornatelyframed family
photo of the Flemings. The Michiganensian is entirely
produced by approximately 40 -University students. It is
on sale for eight dollars at Ulrichs, Folletts and on
the second floor of the Student Publications Bldg., 420
Maynard.
Kiosks to come
Kiosks, or outdoor cylindrical bulletin boards with a
European flavor, will be erected on central campus this
month. All University students, staff members and cam-
pus organizations are encouraged to post notices on the
nine and a half foot tall cylindrical pipes. The four lo-
cations of the trial kiosks will be: south of the Engineer-
ing Arch; between the Museum of Art and Angell Hall;
between the Natural Science Bldg. and Mason Hall;
and at the northeast corner of the C. C. Little Bldg.

Job hunting?
The current tight employment picture for graduate
students will be explored in a conference on "Non-Aca-
demic Job Hunting for Graduate Students" tomorrow
from 8:15 -a. m. to noon in Rackham Amphitheater. The
conference is intended as a practical response to the tight
academic job market. Its aim is to offer a program of
practical advice about job hunting to graduate students
who are looking beyond their academic disciplines to
non-teaching jobs in universities, government and busi-
ness.

Happenings
begin at 11 a.m. in the Regents' Room where
public disclosure of employes' salaries, student govern-
ance and campus security are among the items to be
discussed by the Regents at their regular monthly meet-
ing . ,.at noon, Concerned Clericals for Action will be
meeting in room G311 of the Dental School to discuss
unionization and the word is, "bring a friend, not your
lunch" . . . 2:30 p.m. in the SGC chambers, 3rd floor of
the Union, may be the setting for a rather heated de-"
bate regarding University Director John Feldkamp's
overruling of a hiring appeal by seven Baits resident di-
rectors and advisors. The event is a meeting of the Uni-
versity Housing Council . . . if you happen to be lacking
entertainment on April 28, imagine seeing a master glass-
blower create tiny animals, watching a potter throwing
a bowl and then trying your own luck on the wheel or
observing the intricacies of a woodworker using a lathe.
It can all come true if you stop in at the second Far-
mer's Market Art Fair from 1-7 p.m., at the Farmer's
Market of course . . . and for the politically oriented, the
Human Rights Party has a heavy schedule of meetings
coming up. Sunday at 7:30 p.m. HRP will meet to dis-
cuss candidates for School Board in the lobby of the
fourth floor of the Union . . . Thursday April 25 the party
selects School Board candidates and a co-ordinator and
steering committee for the next four months at Alice
Lloyd's Klein Lounge . . . and the HRP state conven-
tion takes place May 4 and 5 at 1910 Hill St. to update

the party's state platform and discuss the fall election
campaign.
Dope note
Hey all you heavy dope-smoking males out there, you
better watch out! According to a report co-authored by
noted sex researcher William Masters, men who smoke
large vcnounts of marijuana run the risk of decreasing
their fertility. The report was based on the work of re-
searchers at the Reproductive Biology Research Foun-
dation in St. Louis, headed by Masters. They ran tests
on 20 men between the ages of 18 and 28 who smoked
from five to 18 joints a week for 18 monthe or longer and
found that 35 per cent had noticeably decreased sperm
counts.

As long as Frank Rhodes was dean of.
the Literary college, he held a coffee hour
with students every week-that is, until his
administrative duties as the newly appoint-
ed vice president for academic affairs plac-
ed another buffer zone between him and
the members of the literary college.
"He always looked too much in a hurry
for me to ever talk to him," one student
commented of the often elusive LSA dean.
ALTHOUGH RHODES will not be offic-
ially assuming the vice presidency until
July 1, according to his assistant Ned
Dougherty, "he's been trying to hold two
jobs at once and is busy every minute of
the day."
Claiming that he is not an administrator,
but rather "a faculty member who has
taken on an administrative role," Rhodes is
S inca
White

still somewhat skeptical over his vice presi-
dential position.
"I'm not sure I can better serve the Uni-
versity as a vice president rather than a
dean," says Rhodes. "On a day-to-day
basis, I think you can accomplish more as
a dean."
Hoping that he can still remain some-
what accessible to students, he acknowl-
edges that "the farther you go away from
department affairs, t e longer it takes to
get things done and the less contact you can
have with students."
ALTHOUGH RHODES is not as controver-
sial a figure as outgoing Vice President
Allan Smith, he has attracted his share of
criticism - and has also received wide-
spread acclaim.
Considered by many high University of-
ficials to be the only logical successor to
issue s
House

Smith, Rhodes has been hailed as an "in-
novator" and, at the same time, been ac-
cused of rigidity and close-mindedness.
When Rhodes first assumed the LSA dean-
ship in July 1971, he termed his ideas "wild
by conventional standards."
NOW AFTER THREE years of admin-
istering the 29 departments of the Uni-
versity's oldest college, Rhodes asserts that
although he is not a "wild-eyed revolution-
ary," he is still committed to "maintaining
and enhancing the University as a com-
munity of people who are committed to
transmitting and adding to knowledge."
Charles Morris, associate dean of LSA,
believes that Rhodes has done an "extra-
ordinary" job as dean of LSA.
"He was always aware of student needs
-although he may have been bound up in
' other constraints at times. He always em-
phasized the importance of high-quality

undergraduate teaching and reduced the
number of closed courses by 75 per cent."
THE AFFABLE, articulate Rhodes, who
stresses the need for more innovative teach-
ing methods, was a geology professor at the
University for three years before becoming
dean.
However, because Rhodes was so widely
touted as being a "liberal" professor,
many students were disappointed when
radical reforms were not instituted in LSA.
"We were -hopeful when he was first ap-
pointed," comments Jim Weinstein, student
member of the Graduation Requirements
Commission (GRC).
"But, he was socialized into being just
like all the other deans - and nothing new
happened. He was just so nice and smooth
most of the time that he was usually hard

of racism.
By JO MARCOTTY
A grouphof 45 minority students,
most of tChem black, paid an un-
expected visit to the Regents'
monthly meeting yesterday and de-
manded a private session to dis-
cuss what they called "racist ac-
tions and financial discrimination"
by the University.
The Regents and President Rob-
ben Fleming agreed to meet with
the protesters in a private session
this afternoon.
WITH VICE President for Stu-
dent Services Henry Johnson act-
ing as negotiator between the Re-
gents and the minority students,
Esmerelda Watkins from Student
Government Council's Minority Af-
fairs Committee read a statement
accusing the University of being
"institutionally racist," ignoring
the Regents' 1970 commitment to
the Black Action Movement de-
mands, and generally failing to
respond- to the needs of minority
students.
One demonstrator, SGC member
Dietrich Winters, then requested a
meeting between the Regents and
the heads of campus minority
groups for this afternoon, and de-
manded an immediate answer to
his request.
"Most of the problems here are
those that they (the Regents) are
not immediately acquainted with,"
replied Fleming, and added that
he would discuss the situation in
later contacts with the protesters.
LAST NIGHT Fleming and the
Regents agreed to meet with the
groups at 2:30 this afternoon to
discuss the minorities' two major
complaints: financial aid cutbacks
and the possible discontinuation' of
academic probation in the literary
college.

Judge sets May 2
co piance deadline
WASHINGTON (Y) - U. S. District Judge John Sirica yes-
terday issued a subpoena ordering President Nixon to surren-
der 64 tape recordings and documents to be used in the Water-
gate cover-up trial of men who were once his top lieutenants.
Sirica gave the White House until May 2 to comply. He
ordered that the subpoena be served by U. S. marshals no later
than 10 a.m. next Monday.
SIRICA ACTED on a request by Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon
Jaworski who said he needed the material for the conspiracy trial in-
volving John Mitchell, H. R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, Charles Col-
son and three others. The trial is scheduled before Sirica Sept. 9

'The Dukes' hit the .Diag
Students stepped sleepily home from their last few classes of the semester yesterday, but out on the
Diag, the French Dukes - Ann Arbor's famed amateur drill team -- were stepping lively in their daily
practice routine. The Dukes have toured the country under the sponsorship of the Model Cities Youth De-
velopment Program. Drill captain Calvin Ross says he's going to challenge ROTC's Pershing Rifles to a
match, and adds, "We got it all over them. We're so good, we don't need any rifles."

with the latest legal effort to wrest
Watergate information from the
President.
Deputy Press Secretary Gerald
Warren said "the matter will be
considered by the special counsel."
THE SUBPOENA will be the
third issued at the requestbof the
special prosecutor's office. The
White House fought the first one,
last summer, until it lost before
the U. S. Court of Appeals. It com-
plied with a second one last month
without a fight.
The 64 conversations to be sub-
poenaed span nearly a year's
time - beginning with a meet-
ing Nixon had with special coun-
sel Colson on June 20, 1972, and
ending with telephone conversa-
tions the President had with Halde-
man on June 4, 1973.
Twenty - four of the conversa-
tions sought are included in a sub-
poena issued by the House Judic-
iary Committee for its impeach-
ment inquiry. That subpoena re-
quires compliance by next Thurs-
day.
THE COMMITTEE'S chairman,
Peter Rodino (D-N.J.), said in a
television interview yesterday that
any White House editing of the 42
conversations his committee sub-
poenaed "could be considered a
possible ground of impeachment."
Rodino said he will not be satis-
fied with excised versions and that
it is necessary that Nixon comply
fully with the subpoena.
"Unless this is done," he said,
"This is going to be considered by.

for 'Throat'
showing
By DAVID BLOMQUIST
A newly f o r m e d committee
named in honor of State Represent-
ative Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
is sponsoring a weekend benefit
showing of Deep Throat, but Uni-
versity action yesterday blocked
any chance that proceeds will go
to Bullard's re-election campaign.
The original intent of the Bullard
Action Now Group (BANG) appear-
ed to be to donate the famous
porno film's expected large box
office to Bullard's campaign, but
legal restrictions that prevent the
use of University facilities for po-
litical campaigning struck down
that plan.
ACCORDING to Roderick Daane,
the University's general counsel,
BANG was permitted to rent the
Natural Science Aud. to show Deep
Throat, but "agreed that none of
the funds would be paid to Bullard
for his political campaign."
Daane added, however, that he
couldn't "say they (BANG) won't

President Oarl Sandberg announced
last night that he and several
others had filed a civil complaint
against SGC member Matt Hoff-
man for misuse of SGC funds.
The suit, filed in the 15th Judi-
cial District Small Claims Court,
alleges that Hoffman misappro-
piated $120 that SGC had loaned

to the University Housing Council.
HOWEVER, Hoffman claimed
last night, "The money was legiti-
mately appropriated by UHC and
legitimately spent on an election
I think was one of the cheapest
and best run on this campus. SGC
does not have a case."
Hoffman got the $120 from the
UHC last fall to run the group's
elections. However, SGC member
David Faye, co-sponsor of the com-
plaint with Sandberg and Council
member Eliot Chikofsky, contends
that Hoffman's appointment as
UHC election director was ruled
illegal by the Central Student Ju-
diciary (CSJ).
The UHC received its funding in
the form of a $500 loan from SGC.
THE SUIT'S sponsors say CSJ
ruled a UHC meeting at which
Hoffman was appointed invalid, but
Hoffman claims the meeting in-
validated was not the one at which
he was appointed.
The complaint further contends
that even if Hoffman got the
money illegally, he transgressed in
not providing an accounting of his

Early last month two Tulane University fraternity
brothers were stung by a dumpy, young conwoman
who spun a tale of national political intrigue involv-
ing one of their close friends. She then led the pair
on an 11-day trek across the United States to the tune
of more than $4,500 in expenses.
The smooth-talking woman has used a similar and
equally phony story to lure Michael Kubinski, presi-
dent of the University chapter of Sigma Chi frater-
nity, around the country - just as she has done to a
dozen other students since her escape from a Colo-
rado prison a year ago.

Local police reported "no new developments" yes-

ago in a bizarre confidence game.
The police, in conjunction with the FBI, have been
trying to trace Kubinski, a senior at the University,
through his credit card purchases of airline tickets.
He is accompanied by Barbara Ierrella, a con-artist
wanted for bilking a number of college students.
THE POLICE have confirmed that Kubinski and
