UAC banned
UAC-Daystar's recent Luther Allison concert will apparently
be the organization's last one at that location. According to Secre-
tary of the University Dick Kennedy the ban was imposed for
repeated lease violations. These violations included "consumption
and debris leftover from liquor and food, heavy smoking and
subsequent burns on the carpet, seats pulled loose from their
moorings and vomitting in the balcony seats.
Engin school dropout
The engineering school government has voted unanimously
not to participate in SGC elections this spring, but rather to hold
their own separate election. Council president Ro Nagey said
SGC elections are unresasonably expensive and that the ballot
is still not fraud-proof. "Therefore," he said, "for us to participate
would be a farce because SGC elections are a farce."
Foiled again
Three gunmen who robbed the Ann Arbor bank on Packard
St. yesterday were apprehended moments later-thanks to the
quick thinking of Ann Arbor's dog catcher. Stephen Hill, Ann
Arbor dog warden, witnessed the robbery at 11:40 yesterday
morning and followed the crooks in his car-radioing police as to
their whereabouts. Police captured all three only a few blocks
from the scene of the crime.
Negotiations begin
Negotiating teams representing the board of education and
the Ann Arbor public school system will sit down with striking
secretaries of the Teamsters local 214 at 10 a.m. this morning
to discuss their demands. The meeting came at the request of the
Michigan Employment Relations Commission. Meanwhile it is
possible that school bus drivers of the same local union may also
walk out.

Dope notes
Apparently San Francisco police do not believe in halfway
measures. Last night the cops raided a home and arrested ten
people on drug charges. As they left the house with the suspects
in custody, they ran into six federal narcs who had also been
planning to bust the dopers. "They were surprised we were
there," said a San Francisco policeman. "I guess it really blew
them out of the water. But that's the breaks of the game." Some

ing their narcotics seizures, after the theft of 400 pounds of heroin
and cocaine from police confiscated stores.

SANTO DOMINGO-Thousands of Dominicans watched over
nation-wide TV as a 33 year Yoga professor was voluntarily nailed
to a cross Wednesday night. French born Patrice Tamao described
his crucifization as "48-hour sacrifice for world peace and under-
standing among men and to show the power of the spirit over
matter!" Tamao's wife Maritza helped to drive six-inch stainless
steel nails through her husbands hands and feet into a T-shaped
wooden cross. No blood flowed from the wounds as the nails
pierced his flesh.

returning prisoners of wa'r will be given golden lifetime passes to

reported to be considering re-enlisting in the hopes of becoming
part of this elite corps.

If the Weather Bureau's predictions of lower tempera-

form of snow this weekend. For today, however, rain is
almost a sure bet, with "springlike" temperatures shooting
up to the high forties. For the winter freaks the thermome-
ter will drop into the twenties tonight, and there may be
occasional snow flurries.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two senators asked Con-
gress yesterday to allow Americans to possess as much as
three ounces of marijuana at any time without encountering
any criminal penalties.
Senators Jacob Javits (R.-N.Y.) and Harcld Hughes (D.-
Iowa) introduced legislation which, if it passed, would re-
move all federal criminal penalties against private use of
marijuana or even possession of up to three ounces on the
street.
The bill apparently presumes that anyone possessing'

SGC oustis
By TERRY MARTIN
and BILL HEENAN
In what one Council member
termed an "inquisition-type hear-
ing," Stident Government Council
last night voted to remove Ron
Palmerlee from his position onI
the University Council.
SGC Pre s i d e n t Bill Jacobs
(GROUP) led the Council forces
who passed the removal motion by
a 7-2 vote. There were two absten-
tions.
According to Jacobs, the removal
motion stemmed from an incident
involving office space allocation
for a non-profit group called Col-i
lege Entrance Assistance Commit-
tee, of which Palmerlee is a
member.
Jacobs told Council that Palmer-
lee had "doctored" a list of Coun-
cil-approved office allotments in
order to give his organization two
offices instead of one.
Palmerlee allegedly presented
the doctored list to former SGC
treasurer David Schaper, who:
then issued Palmerlee key author-
izations. However, after compar-
ing Palmerlee's list with the orig-I
inal list, Schaper .said he became,

some or all of it, and would
thus be subject to prosecu-
tion.I
Presently, there are stiff criminal
penalties for possession that range
up to life imprisonment in some
states.
The bill if passed would not le-
galize marijuana, but rather would
decriminalizebits use. The drug
would still be a controlled sub-
stance-so the time when packs of
Acapulco Gold are found at every
corner drug store would still be
well in the future.

mission on marijuana recommend-
ed that criminal penalties for sim-
ple possession in privates homes
be ended.
But the commission never pro-
posed ending penalties for posses-
sion in the street.
The Javits-Hughes bill would re-
tain criminal penalties for pos-
session of marijuana with intent to
sell.
Most observers, however, gaveE
the bill little if any chance of pass-
ing successfully through Congress.
Even if it passed the Senate, the
more conservative House of Rep-
resentatives would almost surely
defeat the bill.j
It must also be assumed that
even if the bill managed to make
it through Congress, President
Nixon, who has repeatedly said he
would not allow decriminalization
of the drug, would exercise his
veto power. It would be almost
impossible to muster the two-thirds
Congressional support needed to1
override an executive veto.

Housing
unit faces
def icit
By GORDON ATCHESON
The city's Housing Commis-
sion currently has an expect-
ed $115,000 budget- deficit for
this fiscal year. And unless
federal aid is received, the
program may go bankrupt.
The only explanation for the
commission's grim financial state
has come in a series of charges
and countercharges between the
commission and the ex-director
Donald Johnson.
"Johnson was unwilling or un-
able to exercise any administra-
tive control. He simply refused to
recognize problems," claimed,
Housing' Commission Vice Presi-
dent Steve Burghardt.
Johnson contends he has been
made a scapegoat by the commis-
sion. "The Housing Commission is
just blaming all their problems on
me," Johnson said.
The Housing Commission over-
sees approximately 320 public
housing units within the city. Both
low income families and senior
citizens live in the units. The com-
mission itself consists of five
members appointed by city coun-
cil. They are responsible for hiring
and dismissing administrative
staff, including the director.
Johnson abruptly resigned as
director last- December as the
Housing commission's financial
status became known. "I resigned
under pressure from Barlow (Eliz-
abeth Barlow, Housing Commis-
sion president). She forced me
out," said Johnson.
"The financial management
was not very caref, the whole
job was obviously being done -
subsequently Johnson resigned,"
explained Barlow.
The largest financial error made
by the commission was in esti-
mating the funds lost becauseof
the controversial Brooke Amend-
ment. The federal law, enacted
last year, stipulates that public
housing tenants receiving welfare
cannot pay more than 25 per cent
of their income for rent.
The measure lowers the rent
collected for public housing. There-
fore local agencies, such as the
housing commission, were ex-
pected to reflect the lost funds in
the budgets submitted to the De-
partment of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD). HUD would
then reimburse the agencies.
The Housing Commission under-
estimated the effect of the Brooke
Amendment by over $88,000. "The
error clearly resulted from slop-
py staff work," Barlow charged.

UNIVERSITY HISTORY PROFESSOR John Whitmore, who was in Hanoi when the cease-fire was
declared, shows newsmen the Hanoi newspaper announcing the peace during his press conference
yesterday. The headline refers to a "great victory for our people."
Professor, back from Hanoi,
explores other side of conflict

By CINDY HILL
and JOHN CAMDEN
Speaking of a people "quietly confident" in
war and "optimistic" in peace, John Whitmore,
assistant professor of history, described his im-
pressions of North Vietnam during a press con-
ference in the Administration Bldg. yesterday.
Whitmore, who was in Vietnam during a period
immediately before and after the announcement
of ceasefire, was the first official guest of the
Democratic Republic of Vietnam since the De-
cember bombings and was the first American
academic specialist to visit Hanoi.
Whitmore, an expert on Vietnam, claims that
the Vietnamese felt that the war was "not aimed
at any strategic or military goals."
"The North Vietnamese felt Nixon's goal was
to terrorize the people, and drive them into panic
and chaos," said Whitmore.

"There was no panic, discipline was main-
tained and they fought back."
"They destroyed the myth of the B-52, there
was nothing to be afraid of anymore."
Whitmore said that, despite the heavy bomb-
ings, the North Vietnamese felt that they had
brought America back to the peace table."
The ceasefire, he said, was "more or less what
they expected sooner or later, and probably
later . . . Their attitude was one of 'We will go
on as long as necessary."',
Whitmore noted the historical importance the
Vietnamese gave to the December 18-29 bomb-
ings or as they termed it, "The Battle of the
Twelve Days."
Although Whitmore did not feel qualified to
comment on the overall extent of the destruction,

Special To The Daily
LANSING-Legislation to shield the con-
fidentiality of reporters' sources from
government interference may not sail
through the state legislature as smoothly
as supporters have predicted.

immunity from contempt proceedings be-

Vaughn thinks the bills will pass. He
points to the fact that twenty other repre-
sentatives "immediately" agreed to co-
sponsor the legislation "without any lob-
bying" on his part.
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
is one of the bills' co-sponsors. Like
Vaughn, he thinks the bills have a "very
good" chance of passing the House.
