Doug Harvey Busted
The strange and terrible saga of Washtenaw County's former
law 'n order Sheriff Doug Harvey took yet another bizzare twist
over the weekend when the 41-year-old ex-cop wound up in
the Cheboygan County drunk tank. According to Indian River
policeman Charles Miller, Harvey and his car took an un-
scheduled detour off the I-75 freeway and into a ditch Saturday.
Officers on the scene say Harvey was intoxicated and became
violent when they suggested he spend the night in a motel. At
this point, according to Miller, Harvey was tossed uncere-
moniously into the Cheboygan County Jail's drunk tank. He
was released Sunday on $100 bond. Stay tuned to this space
for further developments in this increasingly twisted drama.
Feldkamp clams up
You won't be hearing much from Director of Housing John
Feldkamp about the case of the East Quad resident who faces
eviction for reporting that his dope was ripped-off. Feldkamp
announced yesterday that "Lease terminations are adminis-
trative procedures requiring due process and are not normally
conducted in public." He did say, however, that a decision
on eviction has not yet been reached.
Teens run amok
Ever since the age of majority was lowered to 18, Washte-
naw County youth have either been boozing more or just being
less cautious. Newly compiled figures show that since the new
age of majority bill took effect last January, alcohol-related
busts in the county have more than doubled for those under 21.
Arrests in this age group for driving under the influence, driv-
ing while intoxicated, and drunk and disorderly have jumped
from 7.4 per cent of the total to 16.8 per cent.
Love them grades!
According to a recent survey of the American Council on
Education, more University freshmen favor grades than oppose
them. This year 56 per cent responded that they opposed
abolishing grades-up from 48 per cent who thought so last year.
t In most respects, however, the -freshman class hasn't changed
much. It's still among the smartest, most ambitious and most
liberal in the country, according to the survey.
Peculiar logic dept.
Today was devastated to get a memo in the campus mail
yesterday announcing that the Office of Student Services (OSS)
useful "What's Happening" calendar will no longer be sent to
The Daily. The calendar, the source for much of the information
in the daily Happenings section of this column, has apparently
proven too successful. Explains 0S: "Due -to a growing de-
mand of recipients we have decided that a mailing list is not
really where it's at."
Last week through a blooper in editing The Daily reported
that presidential advisor Marina Whitman spoke at a lecture
sponsored by the economics department. In fact, her talk was
sponsored by the graduate school of business administration.
The Daily regrets the error.

Reporters bugged
Time magazine says White House aides tapped the tele-
phones of several reporters over a two-year period ending last
June in an attempt to find the source of some high level news
leaks. The Time account says the bugging was done under the
orders for former Attorney General John Mitchell and involved
"six or seven" unnamed reporters. Both Mitchell and his suc-

cessor Richard Kleindienst deny the report.
Missing cop
What do you do when you've lost the town's only cop? The
city council of Royse City, Texas, responded to this crisis by
calling an emergency session to discuss the matter, only to
learn that their wayward chief had at last been found after an
11 day absence. The chief, Luther Davis, offered no explanation
for his disappearing act except to say, "Somebody must have
got their wires crossed. I haven't been missing."
Cat burglar
A would-be thief got the surprise of her life in Flint Sunday
when she snatched a package off a car parked in a shopping

her boty and ran across the lot and into a store. A routine
search by a security guard, however,' forced a disclosure of
what she had ripped-off. The- bag contained a dead cat.

SupremeCourt reaffirms abortion






Decision directed at
laws in nine states
By AP and UPI
The Supreme Court refused yesterday to reconsider its
Jan. 22 decision legalizing abortion, and in a second key move,
rejected a request from four Detroit area school districts for
consideration of their plea for exemption from District Judge
Stephen Roth's school busing order.
In reaffirming last month's controversial abortion rul-
ing, the Court specifically directed lower judiciaries to apply
the decision to anti-abortion laws in nine states.
Swept aside were pleas to hear guardians assert "the
rights of the unborn" and to consider more medical data.
The action implies the court is not likely to provide an
opening to cut back its 7-2 decision in cases from Texas and
Georgia that until the fetus is, viable-generally in the 24th

to 28th week-the states may
not interfere with the doc-
tor's judgment and the wo-
man's right of privacy.
Since then, anti-abortion laws in
Massachusetts, Ohio, New Mexico
and about a dozen other states
have been nullified by lower courts
or state officials.
In appealing for reconsideration,'
Texas accused the high court of
imposing its own "social and eco-
nomic beliefs" to strike down the
state law. Atty. Gen. John Hill and
other officials said "the question
here is not one of postponement of
life but one of the taking of life."
Georgia, accused the court of
overlooking the state's "compelling
interest in protecting the dignity
of human life." Atty. Gen. Arthur
Bolton and other officials said the
justicesahad ruled without adequate
medical information and should
have heard a spokesman "for that
legal entity and for its natural
right to develop to birth.'
Without comment, the court sim-
my denied their petitions for re-
hearing. As a result the state laws
will become invalid after the Jan.
22 judgments are remanded to
courts in Texas and Georgia.

LOS ANGELES (mi)-The judge
in the Pentagon papers trial order-
ed Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony
Russo each acquitted of one count
of the espionage charges in their
15-count indictment yesterday and
scheduled the defense portion of the
trial to begin today.
U.S. District Court Judge Matt
Byrne did not immediately rule
on two other counts which he took
under submission. He refused de-
fense requests to acquit on 11
counts of the espionage-conspiracy-
theft indictment.
His rulings came in the wake
of six hours of defense argu-
ments last Friday in which acquit-
tal on all counts was sought.
"There still remain questions
of constitutionality 'on some of these
statutesas applied," said Byrne
of the laws invoked in the govern-
ment's case.
But he added, "The question of
constitutionality . . . is best con-
sidered, analyzed and resolved
after all evidence is presented."
Ellsberg and Russo are on trial
in connection with the release to
news media of the Pentagon's top
secret study of the Vietnam war.
The judge's ruling on the es-
pionage count against Ellsberg
made official a "saction" imposed
on the government . earlier for
withholding documents from the de-
fense. The government had already
been forbidden from presenting
evidence from the Pentagon papers
volume involved in that count.

"We want those bones returned," shouted
one Indian woman yesterday afternoon as
she and 75 other Indians participated in a
dramatic plea for the University to return
to them their ancestral skeletal remains.
The Indians are requesting the bones
dug up by University archeologists nearly
20 years ago, displayed at the Fort Wayne
museum until two years ago, and now on
the shelves of the University archeology
The afternoon's events consisted of a
scheduled meeting with acting President
Allan Smith and a procession to the mu-
seum of anthropology where several chants
were performed.

The Indians had met with the Regents
approximately a week and a half ago and
yesterday was apparently an attempt to
expedite the Regents' reply.
Smith had hoped for "a staff discussion
of the issues and problems to determine
the nature and purpose of the Indians'
claims" yesterday and was "sorry that it
turned into a TV spectacle." (He was re-
ferring to the several area TV :amera
crews present at the meeting.)
"I think we dramatically got one point
across," said Frederick Boyd, community
relations chairman of the Detroit North
American Indian Association, and he added
"I hope we won't have to use alternate

"Possession (of the Indian skeletal re-
mains) is entirely lawful," Smith said.
But Roslyn McCoy, a member of the Ann
Arbor American Indians Unlimited, pointed
out that "laws were not made according
to Indian custom or belief. The crime is
on you," she said, "you've taken the re-
mains of the (Indian) body from the earth
without regards to Indian tradition
"You totally disregard and make a mock-
ery of Indian tradition," McCoy accused.
And one Indian woman in the back of the
room added that this incident-the Univer-
sity retaining the Indian skeletal remains---
was simply "another example of the white
man's disrespect" for other races.

SGC tr
CSJ ag
In a surprise move yesterday,
acting Student Government Coun-
cil Treasurer Elliot Chikofsky
filed suit in the Central Student
Judiciary (CSJ) against SGC
President Bill Jacobs and three
others, charging they had broken
the SGC Elections Code.
Chikofsky's suit charged - Ja-
cogs, SGC Vice President Lou
Glazer, Elections Director Ken
Newberry and former elections
computer programmer John Koza
with violating chapter 14.62 of
the Elections Code.
The section of the code in ques-
tion provides that computer print-
out results from the fall all-cam-
pus elections must be readily
available for public inspection.
The code also provides that the
computer program for counting
SGC election results remain in
the computer-in a computer
file which is open to public
Chikofsky claims that the four
defendants have not made avail-
able the computer printouts of the
election results. It further al-
leges that the sole copy of the
comnliter program used to count
ih votes is in Kn's nessinn.

easurer files charges in
aistJacobs, 3 others

said Chikofsky "does know what
he's talking about." He -contends
that election results are already
accessible, as they were printed
in The Daily.
Jacobs also said that technicali-
ties of the computer program
are currently being worked out
so it can be used this spring.
Koza is not currently a student,
and it appears that CSJ would
have now power over him even

if it ruled in favor of the suit.
He will not be involved in the
SGC elections this spring.
Koza said last night he had no
copies of the election results. He
said he ;"might have" one copy
of the computer program, but that,
"I'm sure my popy isn't the
only copy.''
Koza denied involvement in
the issue, saying, "I don't give
a shit where my name appeared.

I've got nothing to do with it. I'm
not a student."
In a later conversation with
The Daily, Koza said, "If you
print the charges named (in the
suit), I'll sue your balls off."
According to CSJ chairperson,
Ron Henry, the student court
probably will not hear the case
at least until the middle of
