Now, a super-sewer
To the oversize ranks of the Whopper, the Super Bowl, and
the 747 we add the "super sewer." It sounds like something Paul
Bunyan might concoct for one of his logging camps, but a $200
million sewage treatment system to include our own city-
which the federal Environmental Protection Agency has just
okayed is designed to handle the needs of 3, count 'em, counties-
Washtenaw, Oakland and Wayne. Dubbed the "super sewer," the
system has been opposed by environmentalists because it would
simultaneously lower the Huron River level and further pollute
Lake Erie. Mayor Robert Harris is "giving serious considera-
tion" to legal action to keep Ann Arbor out of the scheme.
Good news from Nashville. Former University vice president
for student services Robert Knauss (who is now dean of the
Vanderbilt University 'law school) got married this week to
Angela "Chi Chi" Lawson, who left her post at the University
last Fall. The ceremony lasted only 45 seconds, according to our
social reporter, and the happy couple are now living together
in holy matrimony in Tennessee. Today congratulates the pair
and wishes them much happiness.
Cop quits WCSD
Stanton Bordine, a hard nosed Sheriff's detective for the past
15 years, has quit the department in a huff with newly elected
Sheriff Fred Postill. Bordine said that morale in the department
had reached an all time low and that the department was ig-
noring narcotics laws - an apparent reference to an order issued
by Postill de-emphasizing the enforcement of pot laws. Postill
termed Bordine's charges, "ridiculous."
Open door policy
In its continuing effort to deal with the crucial issue of the
" day, SGC will soon consider motions to put doors on doorless
men's bathroom stalls and to raise the SGC president's salary
from $25 to $250 a month. The john door proposal, submitted by
Bullshit party member Dave Hornstein, contends that the lack
of doors on some stalls not only "forces the users to experience
a great deal of embarrassment" but also "tends to discourage
the writing of creative and entertaining graffitti."

WASHINGTON-Marine sentries searched car trunks, hand-
bags and packages of most of the 1,750 employes of the Naval
Security Station as they left work - producing a traffic jam and
some complaints. The sentries were searching for Rear Adm.
Samuel Gravely's hat, which officials said had disappeared from
a rack outside a cafeteria during lunchtime. The result of the
searches was not announced. A complete admiral's hat costs
between $32.60 and $66.
Irish start vote
DUBLIN, Ireland - Voting began in Ireland's general elec-
tion yesterday as fishermen and their families on the remote
islands off the northwest coast went to the polls six days ahead
of the rest of the country. And as the first votes were being
cast, the leaders of the opposition Fine Gael and Labor parties,
linked in an electoral coalition, met in Dublin to discuss their
response to Prime Minister Jack Lynch's surprise pledge to
abolish all taxes on private dwellings. Lynch's promise, coupled
with a commitment to raise social welfare benefits for pension-
ers, widows, and the unemployed, came as his ruling Finna Fail
party's campaign appeared to be flagging and support for the
coalition seemed on the increase.
Airborne movie lewd
PARIS, France - Air France was ordered yesterday to pay
2,800 francs (about $635) for showing the film "Benjamin or the
Memoirs of a Virgin" aboard a plane carrying an 11 year-old
girl passenger. A Paris. court made its judgement after hear-
ing a complaint from Jean Valette., a school teacher who was
travelling with his daughter Sophie when the film was shown
aboard a plane flying from Chicago to Paris in August, 1969.
Etienne Ferrer, Air France's manager of in-flight entertainment,
was ordered to pay an 800 franc (about $110) fine and 2,000 francs
(about $450) damages.
'F'ies' uard Petain
ILE DYEU, France-Police yesterday mounted a round-the-
clock guard on the tomb here of Marshal Philippe Petain as
President George Pompidou faced left-wing attacks for sending
a wreath to the reburial of the world war two collaborationist
leader. Police kept up their watch on the simple white tomb
on this windy Atlantic Island in case Petainist sympathizers
tried to repeat their theft of the Marshal's remains on Monday.-
WASHINGTON-Star Kist Foods is recalling 172,800 cans of
tuna, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced yes-
terday. Six confirmed illnesses in the northern midwest have
been connected with tuna in cans having the letter G on the top
line of the code and D419 or D417 as the last digits of the bottom
line. Symptoms of poisoning include dizziness, nausea, vomiting
and burning of the mouth, all occurring within a few minutes to
an hour after the tuna is eaten. Recovery is rapid, however.

Attorney General Frank Kelley yesterday declared abortion
legal in Michigan as a result of a U. S. District Court decision
erasing the state's restrictive abortion statute.
However, it is still not clear what clinics-if any-will be avail-
able soon in Washtenaw County for women seeking routine abor-
University Health Service Director Dr. Robert Anderson said
yesterday the health service will continue to function as a refer-
ral service but will not perform abortions due to a lack of proper
"We probably couldn't get approved to do them even if we
did have the facilities," he added.
A spokesman for University Hospital says the recent ruling
"is not going to make a great deal of difference in our policy.
We're not going to be handling routine abortions-we never have
anyway. We just can't handle the load," he said.
The hospital will continue to accept referral cases of women,
who for medical reasons, will need special treatment.
St. Joseph Hospital has not yet released an official policy
At health service, Anderson said the next step will be to send
a team of experts to evaluate abortion clinics which are currently
operating or will open in the state.
"We want to take a very cautious look at where the facilities
are, who runs them, and how protective they are to women's
Available abortion facilities must be approved by health
service before they will refer students to them. The same pro-
cedure was followed before
New York clinics.
The team will look at the quality of medical care, the use
of lab testing and the availability of counseling services.
"We are very much concerned about the availability of proper
counseling since this is as important as the medical procedure
"It's very important that it's not a rush in and out kind of
thing," Anderson added.
Yesterday's announcement ended 32 days of confusion and
conflicting legal interpretations as a result of the Supreme Court's
Jan. 22 ruling. The court prohibited states from interfering with
abortion during the first three months of pregnancy.

CEASE FIRE COLLAPSES:
From Wi e Ser~iwe Reports
Israeli officials yesterday found the missing flight and
voice recorders from the Libyan airliner that was shot down
over Sinai Wednesday. The tapes indicated the pilot did not
know Israeli pilots had ordered him to land.
An Army spokesperson said a preliminary investigation
df the tapes proved the pilot had been completely off course
and he thought he was over Egypt. He believed the fighter
planes that intercepted him were Egyptian MIGs.
Israel had charged the pilot clearly knew Israeli jets
had intercepted his plane and deliberately tried to evade
them. An Israeli phantom jet shot at the plane as it neared
the Suez Canal. The Libyan jet crashed, killing 106 persons.
