The Doug Harvey Saga
Chapter Four in the Harvey Saga opens in the serene, north-
ern lower Michigan community of Indian River, nestled among
the pines in God's Country. Ex-sheriff Harvey, as you may re-
member from earlier chapters, stands accused of piloting his
car into a ditch under the influence of a potent brew and then
abusing police officers who tried to help him. All of this just
isn't so, Harvey says. Our hero has pleaded innocent to all
charges in Iddian River District Court., Stay tuned.
Another rip-off
Crime again has reared its ugly head on campus. The latest
episode was Monday night when a Bursley Hall, Lewis House
resident was robbed of $180. According to the police, two thieves
walked into his room, seized a knife lying on a nearby table and
demanded money. The robbers were pursued, and a brief strug-
gle followed, but they managed to escape. Later that night,
police apprehended a suspect, Roderick McCreary of Ann Arbor,
who was arraigned yesterday and held with a $10,000 bond.
Bottle ban
The City Council has taken the first step toward making all
soft drink and beer bottles returnable. At its regular Monday
night session this week, council gave first reading approval
to an ordinance designed by the Ecology Center which would
require local merchants to collect deposits on all bottles. The
ordinance, which must be approved in both a first and a second
reading, will come up again March 19 when there will be a
public hearing. If approved it will take effect March 1.
Aw , come off it
No, really, we're not kidding. An anonymous resident of the
Cram Circle area off Plymouth Road claims (believe it or not)
to have seen an abominable snowman in his neighborhood. The
man, who called The Daily with this news tip yesterday and ap-
peared to be sober, claims the animal is "Pretty damn big - a
good seven feet tall." He described the animal as being "furry,"
and says The Thing is so frightening he now keeps the door to
his desidence bolted at night. Concludes he: "It seems the fun-
niest things have happened since I came to Ann Arbor."

Sword swallower
Kraut, a 4-month-old German shepherd pup with a taste
for Italian sausage, instead swallowed a 12-inch butcher knife
and lived to bark about it. Benjamin Stevens, Kraut's owner, said
he and his wife were having a sausage snack in the kitchen of
their home during the weekend when the puppy jumped up,
grabbed the knife from the table and swallowed it without so
much as a yelp. Stevens rushed the dog to a veterinary hos-
pital, where it was discovered the knife was lodged so deeply
it could be detected only with the use of X rays. Surgery was
ordered. "The operation was relatively simple," explained Dr.
Roger M. Batts, who performed the two-hour' surgery, "but
it's still a miracle, that he's alive."
What next?
It had to come: the drip-dry suit for bullfighters. The new
suit designed by Fermin Lopez Fuentes weighs 21/2 pounds
less than traditional garb - and is washable. In a profession
where blood . plays a key role, this is an important change.
Washable suits are expected to last 19 or 20 afternoons. The
average life of a $600 outfit before was about four or five per-

formances. A leading bullfighter's tailor with more than 30
years' experience, Fermin teamed with painter John Fulton of
Philadelphia, Pa., to produce the new suits. Fulton, an American
living in Spain for several years, is an accredited matador.
Pom pon boy?
Jim Rosskopf, a 6-foot-4 sophomore at Stanford University,
wants to be a pomn pon person. In a move for men's liberation,
Rosskopf is vying against about 20 females for the five jobs of
"pom pon dolly," to wave pom pons, in a chorus line at sports
events. "I'm learning the routines because they're good exercise,"
said Rosskopf, who is practicing once a week with the others
for the tryouts in late March.
Pay as you go0
An enema of us all, the W0e toilet charge, was abol-
ished today at Chicago airports. At a press conference, Mayor
Richard Daley announced he has ordered an immediate end to
pay toilets at the city's three rnajor airports. And a spokesman
for the Chicago chapter of the committee to end pay toilets in
America (CEPTIA), told of the abolition, remarked: "God Bless
Mayor Daley."

The University Executive Officers yesterday approved a
plan to implement extensive job classification and salary
changes affecting over 4500 professional and administrative
(P and A) employes.
The plan was created by Management Advisory Group
(MAG) which consists of representatives from the various
University communities employing P and A people. Their
plan is the direct .outgrowth of a study done last year by
management consultants Robert Hayes and associates.
The new guidelines are intended to alleviate sevefal prob-
lems stemming from salary guidelines instituted for P and A

suit filed
by Nagey
In what promises to be another
round of electoral brouhaha, Engin.
Council President Ro Nagey has
charged Student Government Coun-
cil with "illegally and immorally"
blocking his restructuring proposal
from appearing on the March all
campus election ballot.
Nagey maintains that by not
informing him that an earlier
Council vote on his proposed con-
stitutional amendment was invalid
SGC has prevented a "fair and
just consideration of the proposal
by the student body."
In a suit naming himself and the
Pharmacy and Nursing Councils
as complaintants, Nagey asked the
Central Student Judiciary (CSJ)
to restrain SGC from printing any
ballots without his proposal.
The proposal would triple 'the
SGC's size and give separate SGC
representation to individual school
constituencies. It was officially
placed on the ballot by a 6-4 Coun-
cil vote nearly two weeks ago.
But a later look at SGC's con-
stitution revealed that a two-thirds

The search for a director of
the University women's studies
program has begun despite an
unsolved budget problem.
The Committee for Women's
Studies (CFWS), the originators
of the women's studies proposal,
unanimously recommended his-
tory lecturer Kitty Sklar as the
co-ordinator of women's studies
to begin next fall.
The recommendation will be
forwarded to Literary College
Dean Frank Rhodes, who will
select the director from a larger
list of nominations.
Lydia Kleiner, a CFWS mem-
ber, says the committee was
"looking for someone who had ex-
perience with the University, who
was a scholar in the area of
women's studies and was dedi-
cated to furthering women's
studies as a legitmate academic
Sklar believes the director's
position will include three spe-
cific functions. "The first is
building a program which draws
on the resources of LSA effec-
tively," she said. This would
mean promoting research on
women and the hiring of more
women scholars.
According to Sklar, the second
function is the creation of aca-
demic innovationto carry over to
other LSA courses and the third
is concern for women's counsel-
ing needs.
One of the first jobs for the
director Sklar continues is to de-
sign an academic program for

program as being interdisciplin-
ary. She hopes this approach will
be extended to other fields of
The women's studies program
will also encourage departments
to offer courses related to the
field of women's studies, espe-
cially those departments present-
ly not doing so.
The original budget for the pro-
gram was cut when the proposal
was passed earlier this month.
The present budget calls for the
director to run the women's
studies program in addition to
her regular University activities.

The director would receive an
honorium of between $500 to.
$1000. According to Kleiner, final
negotiations are still under way
concerning the amount of release
time the director will receive
from her department.
Money was also appropriated
for office expenses and teaching
fellows for the introductory
"This is a tremendously im-
portant step for the University,"
Sklar commented. "It shows the
openness of the University to
change, and that there is support
for this kind of innovation."

yesterday on "Psychic Phenomena and Its Implications for F t""'

The lecture, part of the Future Worlds series, dealt with

effect of such research on future societies.
Rhine, director of the Foundation for' Research on the

of parapsychological research and work being done in other
fields, primarily psychology, medicine, religion and physics.
He admitted that the academic community has trouble :>,r' h
