State of the cosmos report
Those whose heads are more in the clouds than in their
books will be elated to learn that February, though short, is not
empty of celestial events. University of Michigan astronomer
Hazel osh says that Leo, the Lion, will be visiting the February
night skies and, in fact, has been given the faintly risque-sound-
ing title of "new constellation of the month." Leo will be found
climbing over the eastern horizon shortly after sunset.
Secretary strike begins to bite
The week-old secretaries' strike against the city public
schools began to bite yesterday as militant stenographers threw
up picket lines around Pioneer High school, stopping for a
second day the system's school bus operations and hampering
the delivery of food and supplies. Maintenance personnel also
honored the picket lines, further crippling the normal operation
of the school. No negotiations were held yesterday, after Mon-
day's bargaining broke off with a tentative agreement for layoff
procedures and the rejection of a 4.8 per cent wage offer from
the board. The secretaries are demanding a 5.5 per cent increase.
Further negotiations will be held today. The secretaries have re-
ceived help on the picket lines from members of the local Human
Rights Party.
Prof. Cosand to return
Prof. Joseph Cosand, who served as Deputy Commissioner for
Higher Education in the U.S. Office of Education of the De-
partment of Health Education and Welfare, is to return to the
University after a year in the Nixon Administration. Cosand,
whose resignation becomes effective Feb. 16, said he was leaving
HEW for "personal and professional reasons."
Local man dead at AFB
Airman basic John Galloway, a 20-year-old graduate of Ann
Arbor's Pioneer High School, has been found dead under "mys-
terious circumstances" at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita
Falls, Texas. Galloway was a student at the 3795th Student
Squdron of the school of health care sciences at Sheppard, in
training as an air force dental technician. So far, the Air Force
has released little information on Galloway's death, and his
parents, Dr. and Mrs. Danny Galloway of Ann Arbor, confess to
being quite baffled as to the circumstances of their son's death.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.

Mailer holds a fling
NEW YORK - Norman Mailer is 50 years old and has
dreams of policing the police. At a party to celebrate his golden
birthday, the controversial author announced his plans for "The
Fifth Estate" a foundation he said would organize money and
people to investigate the FBI and the CIA .Iwas heavy news
for a crowd of almost 600 guests, who had paid $30 Monday
night to hear "an announcement of national importance," drink
and eat at New York's Four Seasons Restaurant, and gape at
celebrities such as Bernardo Bertolucci, the director of "Last
Tango in Paris," former Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D-Minn.;
writers Peter Maas - "The Valachi Papers" - Jimmy Breslin,
and of course, Norman Mailer. "Only Norman Mailer could give
a party and charge admission," said author Arthur Schlesinger.
Nature movie X-rated
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - School officials have banned
an Audubon Society-sponsored film on the plight of endangered
species because parents of two students complained about a scene
showing wolves mating. "We decided against the wolf film be-
cause of the mating sequence," said Clarence Noe, director of

Health and Physical Education for the Broward public schools.
Noe was a member of a committee of four school officials which
reviewed the film, "The Death of A Legend," a 15-minute movie
about the remaining wolves in North America, decimated for
years by hunters.
Booze note
REDDING, Calif. - The thief who took a bottle of bourbon
from the trailer home of miner Burt D. Sharp will die if he
takes a sip out of it. Shasta County Sheriff's deputies said Mon-
day that the bourbon was laced with a lethal dose of cyanide
for experimental purposes. If the thief drinks it, Sheriff's Sgt.
Chester Ashmun said, "we're not going to have any trouble
finding him."

SAIGON (A)-The United States announced
on yesterday the withdrawal of 2,000 more
troops and completed plans to welcome the
first homebound American prisoners expected to
be released from North and South Vietnam by
the weekend.
Ambassador Michel Gauvin of Canada, chair-
man of the International Commission for Control
and Supervision, told newsmen the first American
prisoners will be released about Saturday, some
in Hanoi and others at probably two sites in
the Saigon region.
"I don't have any specific time or date but
I know it's around the 10th for American prison-
ers," Gauvin said.
President Nixon's special advisor, Henry Kis-

OWs to
singer, is due in Hanoi for talks on Saturday,
Feb. 10.
In addition to Hanoi, Gauvin mentioned two
potential release sites. One was An Loc, the
devastated provincial capital 60 miles north
of Saigon where one of the bloodiest battles
of the war was fought last summer and where
the last American died before the cease-fire took
effect.
The second was Phu Hoa, in Communist-
controlled territory along the Saigon River cor-
ridor north of the South Vietnamese capital.
American officials said prisoners released in
Hanoi will be flown directly to the big medical
center at Clark Air Base in the Philippines,
where a team of 60 doctors and 100 nurses are

awaiting them.
U.S. prisoners in South Vietnam will pass
through medical stations at Saigon, Pleiku in
.the central highlands and Da Nang in the
northern region, depending on where they are
released. Then they, too, will be transferred to
Clark.
Canadian members of international prisoner
recovery teams that will accompany the captives
from their last place of detention to freedom were
placed on a two-hour alert.
Shortly after the first group of Americans is
released, Gauvin said, Vietnamese prisoners will
be freed or exchanged in South Vietnam.

operation.

With the pullout of another 2,000 soldiers over
the last four days, U.S. troop strength fell to
19,000, the lowest level since December 1964.
All U.S. troops must be out of Vietnam and all
prisoners freed by March 28 under terms of the
peace agreement signed in Paris on Jan. 27.
Kissinger told a news conference Jan. 24 that
the United States expects American prisoners
will be released at two-week intervals in roughly
equal installments. North Vietnam has given the
United States a list of 562 U.S. servicemen and
23 American civilians held in Communist cap-
tivity in North and South Vietnam and Laos.

ceasef ire talks
By AP and Reuters
WASHINGTON-The United States and North Vietnam
announced yesterday that a major international conference
to guarantee the Vietnam peace would open in Paris Feb. 26.
A few hours after the joint announcemment of the con-
ference date and site, the White House disclosed that presi-
dential assistant Henry Kissinger would stop in Laos Friday
to check on prospects for a Laotian cease-fire before heading
to Hanoi Saturday for four days of talks.
Kissinger will leave Andrews Air Force Base, Md., at 10
a.m., this morning. He will go first to Bangkok to confer with
Thai officials and with U. S. ambassadors from South Viet-
nam, Cambodia and Laos.
He will then head on to Vientiane for talks with Laotian
officials, then to Hanoi and -- -----

MISMANAGEMENT CHARGED:

Deficil
By TERRY MARTIN
Because of spending policies
which some charge make it re-
semble a "gigantic piggy-bank,"
Student Government C o u n c i I
(SGC) appears overdrawn on its
$70,000-plus budget.
According to David Schaper,
former SGC treasurer, the group
"spent money they didn't have."
A scrutiny of the Council-
approved minutes since Septem-
ber 1972 shows that allocations to
outside groups have already ex-
ceeded by over $1000 the money
supposedly appropriated for such

sponsorship as well as reserve
money in two other accounts.
Schaper predicts that "if SGC
continues at its present rate, it
will be overspent by $5000 at the
end of the year."
The internal financial policies
of SGC have been similarly con-
troversial.
Since September, SGC has:
-Shelled out $5,385-nearly $2-
per-vote-for an elaborate all-
campus election that Schaper ad-
mits was a "disaster";
-Spent at least $4,000 to pub-

Amazon tribe found
BRASILIA (Reuters) - A Brazilian anthropologist has be-
come the first white man to meet the fierce giant warriors of a
legendary lost Amazon tribe.
In a historic encounter, Claudio Villasboas met the giant In-
dians of the Krenakores Tribe, some over six foot six inches tall,
at his jungle camp at the Peixoto de Axeredo Rivers in northern
Mato Grosso State.
The warriors, feared by neighboring tribes for their use of
clubs to crush the skulls of enemies in battle, handed over gifts
of arrows and bows and were given steel axes, knives and kettles
by Villasboas.
News of the meeting reached the Indian Foundation head-
quarters here Monday.

ber of reasons, been unable to

Based on amounts given in ap-
proved minutes, Council spon-
sorship allocations total $10,300
for such diverse organizations
as Advocates for Medical Infor-
mation and the Alpha Phi Omega
Blood Bank. Of this, $3,500 is the
budget for the Minority Affairs
Committee, headed by SGC Vice
budget for the Minority Affairs
Lee Gill. Gillsays the committee
has "about $1,300" left.
A $3000 Sponsorship Fund is the
only account actually set up for
outside allocations, but SGC can
also resort to a General Fund
(for non-appropriated expendi-
tures) and supposedly a Reserve
Fund. The sum of all three ac-
counts, however, is only $9,227,
$1000 less than allocations to date.

not uncommon for SGC to operate

resources
I rop off
By DAN BLUGERMAN
Along with other consumer ad-
vocate groups in the country, the
Public Interest Research Group In
Michigan (PIRGIM) has been hav-
ing its financial difficulties.
During winter '73 registration,
their support, in the form of a
student self-assessment of $1.50,
dropped 16 per cent compared to
those fees collected in the fall.
This drop from 51 to 35 per cent
when translated into dollars is a
decrease of $7,000. The budget for
the state-wide organization is $77,-
000 according to Ann Arbor PIR-
GIM co-ordinator Bill Meyers. This
money comes from five other col-
leges in the state, foundation
grants and donations.
"The only effect (of the loss) is
that we will have to hire one less
full time staff person than we had
planned on," said Jay Tower, a
