Harvey has a job(?!)
Former county top-cop Douglas Harvey has finally found
employment after cooling his heels since his ignominous defeat in
last November's general election. His new job: chasing people
who. skip bonds for Harold Moon, bail bondsman. Harvey tried
for something better, but his application to be chief of Livingston
County's Green Oak Township Police Dept. was rejected. Have
we heard the last of this man? Watch this space for further in-
stallments of the strange and terrible saga.
Bubble challenge
Reaction to the Daily's recent bubble-gum blowing contest
is still pouring in. Yesterday we received a letter from Susie
Roy, a student at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas.
She apparently read a story about the contest in a local paper
and has officially challenged Doug Dixon, winner of the wierd-
ness contest to a duel- bubble gum style that is. "I have been
chewing bubble gum for 14 years, she wrote, "and my record is
eleven bubbles within a bubble." Dixon won the Daily's contest
with a mere bubble within a bubble. We wonder if Roy's claim
is genuine however, or if it isn't just a lot of hot air.
Bubble praise
The day's other bubble note came from District Court Judge
Sandorf Elden, one of the guest officials in last week's contest.
Elden said that he found the contest to be truly enjoyable and
exhilirating but he added, ,"I must admit that one of my
frustrations in life is my inability to blow a bubble gum bubble."
Happenings,. ..
. . . today are led off by a truly bizarre event - bizarre
because it was sent in by some people who genuinely like Johnny
Orr. 'True Blue' basketball fans are asked to gather at the
north side of Crisler Arena at 12:30 p.m. for an informal sendoff
rally for Orr's Minnesota-bound hoopsters . . . Dance freeks
should head for Couzins Hall tonite at 8:00 p.m. where two bands
will play in a UAC sponsored dance. Admission is one dollar
but beer will be free . . . for those into different kinds of dance,
the International Folkdance Club will gather in Barbour gym
at 8:00 p.m. for a Turkish Dance workshop . . . Also at 8:00
p.m. Dr. Tobe Johnson, Director of the Afro-American studies
program at Atlanta University will participate in a University
colloqium scheduled to examine black issues and their impli-
cation for higher education . . . finally at 8:00 p.m., apparently
a very popular time, oil economist Oudi Abardimeh will speak
at Rackham Amphitheatre on "Arab Oil and The Energy
Crisis" . . . and tonight and tomorrow night Michigan House
of West Quad is putting on "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
Winthrop Rockefeller dies
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Winthrop Rockefeller, 60, former
Arkansas governor, cattle baron, and a brother of Nelson Rocke-
feller, died of cancer here yesterday morning. Rockefeller be-
came Arkansas' first Republican governor in 94 years in 1967.
He served until 1970, instituting reforms in governmental organi-
zation, race relations, prisons, and gambling and drinking laws.
Petain puns
PARIS; France - The corpse of Marshal Philippe Petain,
which has done more traveling than most live bodies, was
returned to its Atlantic Island burial place yesterday. The de-
cision to return Petain, the hero-turned-traitor, to the island has
provoked a grave crisis in France. Many of Petain's right-wing
supporters feel he deserves a hero's burial at Verdun. Critics,
on the other hand, feel too much dirt has been unearthed about
Petain's past to permit such an honor.
Just like in the movies
LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Singer Elvin Presley got a standing
ovation during a show here, but it was not for his singing. Pres-
ley was on stage when four men climbed out of the crowd, inter-
rupting his act. Presley used a karate-like chop to knock one
man off the stage, while a band member tackled another. Ap-
parently all the years of moving those hips has kept the "king"
in shape.
Capital idea
LINCOLN, England - A conservative candidate for Parlia-
ment yesterday demanded the return of capital punishment, but
said razor blades should be left in the cells of convicted murder-
ers so they could execute themselves. "Hanging is sadistic,"
Jonathan Guinness told reporters. When informed that death
by razor cuts could be even slower than the hangman's rope
Guinness replied, "Well perhaps a pill or a revolver. I haven't
thought this out very carefully."

Michigan abortion


DETROIT (UPI) - Michigan's
127-year-old abortion law was
declared unconstitutional yester-
day by a three-judge panel of the
U.S. District Coprt.
The panel adopted the language
of a recent U.S. Supreme Court
ruling that Michigan's highly re-
strictive law "cannot survive the
constitutional attack made upon
The high court said in a case
involving abortion statutes in
Texas and Georgia that states
cannot prohibit voluntary abor-

tions during the first three
months of pregnancy.
The three-judge panel of U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals Judge
George Edwards and U.S. Dis-
trict Judges Thomas Thornton
and John Feikens voided Mich-
igan's law in a case involving an
unidentified Lansing woman who
sought an abortion because she
had rubella German measles dur-
ing pregnancy.
Under the Supreme Court guide-
lines adopted by the Detroit
panel, women can receive abor-

tions upon demand during the
first three months of pregnancy.
During the r e ma i n i n g six
months, however, states may
regulate abortion procedures and
during the final 10 weeks of
pregnancy may prohibit abortion,
except 'where the mother's life
is endangered.
Michigan law has prohibited
abortions in any circumstances
and at any point of the pregnancy
except to save the mother's life.
Despite the federal panel's rul-
ing, Michigan's official legal po-

sition on abortions was not clear.
Attorney General Frank Kelley
has claimed that the U.S. Su-
preme Court decision of Jan. 22
could not be applied to the state
immediately because of a re-
quest to rehear the Georgia and
Texas cases.
Kelley s t o p p e d the state's
health director from issuing
guidelines for the operation of
abortion clinics, saying it would
put the state in the position of
sanctioning illegal acts.
Public Health Director Mau-

rice Reizen said he has been
advised by Kelley that it would
be improper for the state to
issue its guidelines until the U.S.
Supreme Court acts on rehear-
ing motions submitted by Texas
and Georgia.
"The advice of the atttorney
general's office is that the de-
partment would be in the posi-
tion of condoning abortions which
are still illegal in this state de-
spite the fact that they are being
performed," Reizen said.

The federal court is the second
court to declare the Michigan
law unconstitutional.
Wayne County Circuit Judge
Charles Kaufman ruled last Oc-
tober that it was unconstitutional
and enjoined W a y n e County
Prosecutor William Cahalan from
prosecuting licensed physicians
who performed abortions.
Cahalan appealed the decision
to the Michigan Supreme Court
which has scheduled April hear-
ings for that case and two others.

President Nixon threatened
yesterday to increase income
taxes by 15 per cent if Con-
gress failed to approve budget
cuts in government welfare'
programs and impose federal
spending limits.
The announcement was appar-
ently an attempt to make Congress

In a 3,000-word economic mes-
sage to Congress the President also
warned against any attempts at
flouting the Administration's eco-
nomic controls.
He said the controls were still in
effect and only the method of en-
forcing them had changed.
Mostly the controls relied on vol-
untary cooperation, he said, "but
if some people should fail to co-
operate we still have the will and
the means to crack down on them

WASHINGTON (Reuter)-China and the United States
erday took a a significant step toward eventual diplo-
ic recognition by agreeing to establish official liaison
ces in Washington and Peking.
The decision to exchange missions to develop trade and
er cbntacts was accompanied by other steps' to speed the
rovement of Sino-American relations that began when
sident Nixon made his historic trip to China a year ago.
A joint U.S.-China communique issued on Henry Kissin-
s recent talks in Peking said the time had arrived follow-
the Vietnam peace settlement-for "accelerating the
malization of relations," which observers had no doubt

Kissinger told a press conference
that the liaison offices would be
set up in the near future as the
main contact point for the develop-
ment of trade and all other mat-
ters, except the strictly formal dip-
lomatic aspects of ties between the
two countries.
As a gesture of goodwill, Kissin-
ger said Prime Minister Chou En-
Lai had told him that two American
pilots-Air Force Maj. Philip Smith
and Navy Lt. Cmdr. Robert Flynn-
would be released from prison
within a few weeks.

liner reverberatea around the Arab world yesterday.
Wednesday's shooting, which cost at least 100 lives, was
condemned by Arab leaders and newspapers as "bar-
baric" and "cold blooded piracy."
However, Israel's air force chief and the fighter pilots
who shot down the airliner yesterday said the pilots
were only trying to force the plane to land, but it re-
sisted and seemed to be trying to escape.
Defense MinistertMoshe Dayan told reporters the
Israeli decisions in the incident were taken through
normal military channels below the government level
and had "no political significance whatsoever."
The Soviet Union, which backs the Arab countries in
the Middle East conflict, declared through official
news media that Israel was attempting to wreck chances
for a peaceful settlement in the Middle East.
In Paris, Foreign Minister Maurice Schumann sum-

moned the Israeli charge d'affaires to express "the deep
and unanimous emotion" of France, which provided
most of the plane's crew.
U. N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim called the
act "one of the most shocking incidents in the history
of bivil aviation," and called for a full investigation.
Amid a chorus of condemnation from Arab capitals,
Libya itself - the chief victim of Israel's action - pro-
duced the least initial reaction, observers noted here.
They wondered whether, and how, Libya will retaliate.
Apparently 105 persons died in the crash Wednesday
of the Libyan Airlines Boeing 727 jet in the Israeli-oc-
cupied Sinai Desert. Libyan officials said the three-jet
plane had 112 aboard. Israel reported nine survivors
were pulled from the wreckage but two died later.
"We tried desperately to force it down,'not to shoot it
down" the air force chief, Maj. Gen. Mordechai Hod,
told reporters. "The more the pilot objected and the

more he tried to get away, the more suspect he be-
Two Israel pilots, identified at the news conference
only by the initials "S" and "Y", said their fighter
bombers were 10 or 15 feet from the Boeing and they
could see the captain.
"We had orders to bring him to an air base, so. with
my thumb I pointed down and backward, because .we
already were beyond the base where we wanted the
plane to land." Y related.
"But the pilot indicated with his hand that he was
going straight on, west toward the Suez Canal."
Fighter pilot Y said they also fired warning bursts,
each lasting half a second.
The pilot said they tried to see if the plane carried
passengers, but its curtains were drawn.
Y said the Israelis were in constant contact with the
ground and "followed only the orders that were given

excess DES use
From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON-Medical experts told Congress yesterday that many
college health services routinely prescribe the controversial morning-
after birth control pill (DES) specifically charging that the University's
own health service dispenses the drug "like water."
Anita Johnson, an attorney with the Health Research Group in
Washington, told Congress of finding widespread use of the "morning-
after" pill at 14 universities, including the University.
"Advocates for Medical Information, an Ann Arbor student group,
reported to us last November that the health service at the University
of Michigan was dispensing DES like water," she said.
Director of the University's Information Service Joel Berger denied
charges that the Health Service routinely dispenses DES as a birth
control measure. "We are reluctant to prescribe it on a regular
basis," he said.
He called the charge a "headline-type comment," saying students
who request the pill are "made well aware of other birth control
