Govt. moving on in .
City officials are gloating over the final cite approval for a
federal building Ann Arbor has been waiting for since about
1950. The building, to be constructed between Fourth and Fifth
Aves. at Liberty St., will displace the Varsity Laundry, the
Eberbach Bldg., the Masonic Temple, and some privately owned
homes. Costing about $4 million to construct, the federal building
will bring about $40,000 a year in taxes to the city. Private groups
will own the structure for the first twenty years, after which it will
revert to the government. According to happy city officials, not
only will the building bring in tax money and house some 240
government employes presently scattered all over Washtenaw
County; it will help "rejuvenate" the central business district.
The news was announced this morning by Rep. Marvin Esch
Griffin moving on up ..*.
From now on, when you read or hear on the news that "The
Senate Foreign Relations Committee did such and such ."
you should be aware that you are represented on that august
body. Michigan's own Sen. Robert Griffin has just been trans-
ferred from the Finance Committee to prestigious Foreign Rela-
tions. And that's not all Bob's been doing-last week he was re-
elected assistant minority leader without opposition by Senate
Republicans. As the ads used to say, "Look Martha, he's right
up front."
A matter of life and breath
Hate to see people killing themselves? You're in luck. TheJ
fourth floor study area of the UGLI has been designated as a
non-smoking area for the Winter 1973 term at the request of
numerousnon-smokers. Smoking is still permitted on the other
floors of the UGLI.
Return of campus djs
For all of you who have been waiting with baited breath for
the campus' crackerjack radio station WCBN to return to the air
after a lengthy., vacation, your time has come. The merry
Morning Men of 'CBN will start spinning the vinyl promptly at
12 midnight tonight. Set your tuner to 89.5 on the FM bracket for
a special 12-hour inaugural show. "Turn Me On-I'm a Radio..."
Happenings.. ..
. . . Appear slim to our experienced eyes. At 6 p.m., the
Pyramid gallery will hold an Art Happening titled "All aliens
must report on Jan. 13." . . . If you're in a sporting mood, check
out the gymnastics, wrestling and/or hockey events today, but if
you're more into academics, try the lecture by Preston Slosson,
professor emeritus of history on "The Impact of American Life
on the American School: The Colonial School," at 10 a.m. at the
education school building.
Strike in Italy
ROME-Millions of Italian workers joined a four-hour nation-
wide strike yesterday, to protest the centrist government's social
and economic policies. Worst hit by the strike, called by the
nation's big three labor unions, was Rome and the surrounding
area, where unions rallied their members for twenty-fourhours.
One good piece of news for the government of Giulio Andreotti,
head of the nation's most conservative administration in ten
years, was that Italy's 1,200,000 construction workers reached
agreement early yesterday morning on a new labor contract.
The construction workers have also been staging a series of

MANAGUA-When bad luck comes, it never seems to want to
leave. Residents of the Nicaraguan cities of Managua, Masaya,
and Jinotepe will be the first to tell you. Renewed activity in
nearby volcanoes shook all three cities early yesterday morning,
sending people rushing into the streets in panic. The agriculture
ministry reported that the most serious result of the volcanic
activity was damage to coffee crops and cattle pastures from
volcanic dust and gas emissions.
Hoe, hoe, hoe
PRESTBURY, England-When Roy Sheldon advertised a
freelance gardening service, he received more replies than he
expected-most of them from women who wanted a gardener and
a little something on the side. The trouble started when his ad,
which read "Man wants work. Ring any time. Will do anything
in the garden," slipped behind another card on the town bulletin
board. The words "in the garden" were obscured. It did not
take long for Sheldon's wife to receive the first of many calls.

The weather picture
The sky will be fair tomorrow, which is more than we
can say for the rest of the weather. It's won't be quite as
cold as yesterday, but the low will range between 12 and
17 degrees, and the high will be in the lower 30's. The
winds will be from the southwest to 10 to 15 miles per hour,

Arts Editor
Pulitzer Prize winning American poet
Richard Wilbur read a varied sampling of
his works yesterday afternoon to an over-
flowing crowd at Rackham Amphitheatre.
Although most of his poems are not par-
ticularly political in nature, Wilbur dedi-
cated the reading to Capt. Michael Heck,
B-52 commander who recently refused to
continue bombing North Vietnam following
his 175th mission. "Everyone's bored by the
war," the poet mused, "but it's worse now
than ever."
He then read "Advice to Prophet," a
poem he described as his "closest to politi-
cal" writing in which he reacts to the.
Hiroshima bombings.
It was an hour of seriousness and humor
that followed, as Wilbur read various selec-
tions from his early and recent works, in-
cluding some often witty rhymes from his
soon to be published children's book.
A graduate from Amherst College who
received his M.A. degree from Harvard
University, Wilbur currently teaches En-
glish at Wesleyan University.
The 51-year-old poet has been the honored
recipient of the National Book Award and
the Bollingen Prize.
Wilbur's reading followed the presenta-
tion of the Underclassmen Avery and Jule
Hopwood Awards, the Bain-Swiggett Award,
the Michael R. Gutterman Award and the
Academy of American Poets Award.

ing and further details about the awards

i Dlyrenews effort
to open 'U' salaries
In a move which could affect future University salary
disclosures, Saginaw Valley College has released a complete
faculty salary list in accordance with a previous court order.
The small, state-funded college dropped its appeal of
Bay County Circuit Court Judge Leon Dardas' ruling in favor
of a Bay City Times' suit last June ordering publication of
the list.
Dardas' opinion stated that "the public has a clear and
unquestionable right to be kept fully informed as to how
their tax dollars are being spent."
Saginaw Valley follows two other state-supported col-
leges in publishing its salaries. Both Michigan State Uni-
versity and Delta College,,,-
which was originally a defen-

The disclosure may stir new
controversy over the Regents' re-

July for disclosure of a full salary

sex, race, and length of service of
all staff members.
At that time the Regents voted
6-2 against disclosure, supporting

cation that Judge Dardas' ruling
in favor of open salary lists would
hold up in an appeals court."
Fitzgerald added that The Dily
will renew its request for full dis-

"When President Fleming called
for a refusal of our original re-
quest," she said, "he did so

By Reuters and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Nix-
on's surprise abandonment of al
most all compulsory wage-price
controls was not expected to lead
to an immediate round of price in-
creases, but there were mixed
views on the long-term effects.
The chief restraint against rapid
price rises, observers said, was
the President's promise to stop ac-
tion that would be "inconsistent
with our anti-inflation goals."
This was widely interpreted as a
threat of government rollbacks of
excessive wage or price hikes.
The President revealed the lift-
ing of mandatory controls, except
for food processing and retailing,
health services and construction,
in a message to Congress Thurs-
day. The plans were 'part of a re-
quest to extend his authority to
impose controls beyond the cur-
rent April 30 cutoff. Some observ-
ers felt that he was dropping man-
datory controls in order to assure
continuation of his authority to
clamp them back on again if in-
flation gets out of hand.
Last year inflation dropped from
six per cent to about 31 per cent.
This was one point short of the
President's goal of 2 per cent
but still good enough for Nixon to
lift the mandatory controls which
labor and consumer groups com-
plain have held down wages but
not profits, dividends, interest and
food prices.
Nixon, who came into office gen-
erally opposed to wage-price con-
trols, told Congress that complete
elimination of the controls could be
hastened by relying to a greater
extent on voluntary cooperation.
The government will continue
to set guidelines for price and
wage rises. For the time being, the
White House asked pay increases
to be limited to the current guide-
line of 5.5 per cent annually.
As a general rule, the White
House said, price rises should not
exceed increases in cost, and, if a
firm was earning more than a
certain profit margin, it should ab-
sorb cost increases without rais-
ing prices.
There were varying opinions
among economists on the effects
of -Nixon's latest action. Charles
Shultz, Nixon's chief economist,
said "a little surge" was possi-
ble in the coming months but
doubted that prices would explode
now that controls have been lifted.
However, other economists were
worried about an easing of con-
trols resparking widespread price
rises, particularly in the wake of
a big December rise in wholesale
