PARTY DISPUTE

IFYOUSEE NES HAPPEN CALL76-DMLY
'U' prof testifies
University Political Science Prof. Allen Whiting testified at
the Daniel Ellsberg trial in Los Angeles yesterday that the Pen-
tagon Papers had no intelligence value to the North Vietnamese
nor any foreign enemy by the time Ellsberg and Anthony Russo
copied the secret documents. Speaking as an intelligence analyst
and a consultant to the State Department, Whiting added that it
was obvious that some secrets in the volumes had been purpose-
ly leaked to the U.S. by foreign governments and, thus, their
disclosure could not have damaged U. S. foreign relations.
Regents meet

mill for the city Public Library and branches-in real terms $8
million more in taxes. A finalized list of which programs would
be cut if the millage is defeated will be released at the end of
April. Jeff Kuhn, a member of the Student Advocate School
Board said "the programs which are new and controversial like
the free school may be cut," if the millage is defeated.

S. African turmoil
PRETORIA, South Africa - Six men, an Australian, an
Irishman and four Black South Africans,, began trial in the Su-
preme Court here 'yesterday charged with conspiring to encour-
age violent revolution in South Africa. They face a total of 19
charges under the Terrorism Act, which provides for a minimum
jail sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of death for
those found guilty. The six are believed to have been arrested
in the middle of 1972. They made their first court appearance,
handcuffed together in Paris, last November 19.
Erotic art lives
SAN FRANCISCO-The world's first museum of erotic art
opens next weekend, its walls covered by 2,000 depictions of sex-
ual activity. "People think erotic art means a bunch of dirty
pictures; they don't understand the quality of art that makes up
this collection," said The Rev. Ted McIlvenna, whose Genesis
Church owns the museum. The art works will range from the
"only unbroken record of Japanese erotic art" to etchings by
Picasso. In addition, the museum will have such things for sale
as glassware, skirts and pillow cases embossed with erotic de-
signs. Any profits will go to the National Sex Forum, an off-
shoot of the church which provides sexual therapy and sex edu-
cationalmaterials.
No meat allowed
ESCANABA-The Escanaba Daily Press is having a con-
test for the best recipe without using meat, with all the recipes
to be printed and the top three declared winners. The only prob-
lem is that so far only two recipes have been submitted and nei-
ther one sounds very tasty. The first is a meatless loaf made out
of walnuts, onions, potatoes and eggs and the second is a tuna
casserole made from tuna fish, mashed cooked cauliflower, to-
mato juice, carrots, and peas.
On the inside...
. . .. David Gruber tells us all about the 11th annual

Ann Arbor Film Festival on the Arts Page . . . the Edi-
torial Page features Ted Stein's treatise on University
bossism and Bob Barkin's comments on President Flem-
ing's vacation . . . and the Sports Page will give the defini-
tive story on the big Redwing-Canadian game.
The weather picture
If you want to see the sky today, you're going to be out
of luck, for all you will see are clouds. There is a chance
of rain in the afternoon. The high will be in the mid 60s and
the low in the 40s.

Dems split
By TERRY MARTIN
The few remaining weeks before April's city election are
crucial for the city Democratic party and it appears the party's
campaign to capture city hall is in deep trouble.
Not only are the Democrats fighting their electoral opponents,
they are also fighting each other.
At the center of the internal struggle is the party's symbolic
head, mayoral nominee Franz Mogdis.
According to local observers Mogdis was hand-picked by
Mayor Harris. But these sources also contend that younger and
more radical elements of the party have not, and still do not, "feel
terrific loyalty" towards Mogdis.
Moreover, the Democrats, who face a hard fight against
Human Rights Party (HRP) mayoral candidate Benita Kaimo-
witz, appear to have run aground on one of the city's most vola-
tile issues-women's rights.

(

ver Mogdis
All four female Democratic council candidates will be appear-
ing on a leaflet along with HRP mayoral candidate Benita Kaimo-
witz. The leaflet, put out by the local Women's Political Caucus,
does not identify the candidates as Mogdis supporters.
Democratic sources claim that party "regulars" have been
putting "tremendous pressure" on several of the women to dis-
associate themselves from the caucus. All four have declined
to do so.
A central issue in the split is health and child care facilities.
A plank in the Democratic party platform pledges support for the
establishment and continuance of such facilities.
Yet Democratic councilmen, including First Ward incumbent
Norris Thomas, have voted against allocating federal revenue
sharing money to a "Women's Community Clinic" which would

Deathla
proposed
By Reuter and AP .:X
WASHINGTON - President,
Nixon asked Congress yester-,
day to reimpose the death
penalty for certain federal
crimes and set rigid guidelines:
under which it would be ap-
plied automatically.,
The President's proposals were.
r a special message sent to Con .
gress four days after a radio
speech in which he denounced
"soft headed" judges and attacked!
the philosophy that social injustice,
rather than the criminal himself'!
was responsible for crime.
Nixon said his programs for cut-
ting crime were working well but
now he wanted new laws to plug!
the holes in the judicial systemS
that weakened law enforcement.
"The only way to attack crime
in America is the way crime at-!
tacks our people-without pity,"
he declared.
The president's most controver-
sial proposal-under assault from
liberals and civil liberties groups
since his radio speech-was for
the restoration of the death pen-
alty for war-related treason, sabo-
tage, espionage, and for other fed-
eral crimes where death is the
result.
The President proposed the res-
toration of death sentences to over-
come last year's Supreme Court
decision outlawing the penalty on
the grounds that it was being ap-
plied in a capricious and arbitrary
manner.
After the court's decision, Nixon
ordered Atty. Gen. Richard Klein-
dienst to come up with a statute
I that would allow capital punish-
ment while meeting the court's
objections.
Justice Department attorneysF
worked for months on the draft
proposal, guided by Nixon's con-
tention that "the best way to ac-
comodate the reservations of the Fists clenched, t
court is to authorize the automatic~ it lnhd
imposition of the deathapenalty! Four other POW

prices may rise
By JONATHAN MILLER
In February it was 14,000 lbs. of marijuana con-
fiscated in Los Angeles. Two weeks ago the govern-
ment picked up nine tons of weed in Florida. Last
week in Ann Arbor 400 pounds of reefer was nabbed
by the cops. Tuesday, the government grabbed 25
tons of the stuff on the. Arizona-Mexican border.
Does all this mean that American pot heads will
face a dope shortage this year?
The answerto that is: Probably not.
Almost everyone, from a spokesman for the Bu-
reau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) to
street dealers in Ann Arbor, agrees that the size of
the marijuana market is now so great that a few
random busts, however large, will likely have no
great impact on the traffic.
At most, these experts say, these big seizures will
merely driven even higher the already inflated
price of weed.
Accurate statistics on the marijuana industry are
hard to come by, but an educated guess by the city
police department here is that upwards of 1,000 lbs.
of marijuana a week are imported and sold in Ann
Arbor.
If the figure is correct and dealers interviewed
by this reporter concur with the police estimate-
even last week's haul of 400 pounds cannot be ex-
pected to have more than a temporary impact on
the local market-and that seizure was the biggest
in Ann Arbor's history.
Explains Lt. Calvin Hicks, head of the drug squad
at the city police department:
"These sizeable confiscations have a tendency to
create a cooling off period whereby the smuggling
and transportation end drop off for a while. The
dealers slack off and try to read how much heat
law enforcement is putting on."
But even Hicks concedes that the effects of the
raids are at best temporary, and unless more seiz-
ures are made the traffic soon gets back to normal.
The attitude of the BNDD is somewhat similar.
Hank Price, a spokesman for BNDD, told The
Daily that no-one at his agency was under any pre-
tensions that even the big raids announced recently
would have a marked effect on the overall traffic.
"It's going to take time," Price said. "But we are
starting to get closer to the sources."
Keith Stroup, director of a Washington-based lob-
by group called the National Organization for the
Reform of Marijuana Laws, said in a telephone in-
terview that the recent busts, though "clearly the

PRIVILEGE ISSUE:
Nixon refuses Senate
request to hear aide
WASHINGTON (Reuter)-President Nixon yesterday
threw down a challenge to Congress by refusing to permit
White House Counsel John Dean III to testify at a hearing
on the nomination of L. Patrick Gray as director of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
A number of senior Democratic senators have indicated
the Senate will refuse to confirm Gray's nomination unless
Dean agrees to testify.
Nixon has invoked the principle of executive privilege,
barring members of his per-i
sonal staff from appearing be-
fore congressional committees
as confidential in their rela-

Burns union advocate

By REBECCA WARNER
In what fellow guards call
"harassment of the highest or-
der," a campus Burns Security
guard has been fired for viola-
tion of haircut regulations less
than a month after he was ap-
pointed temporary union repre-
sentative for University guards
to the United Plant Guard Work-
ers of America (UPGWA) Local
114.
Fred Wolgel, a University stu-
dent and one of Burns' most
tenured guards on campus at 11
months of employment, was in-
formed his job had been termi-
nated Monday by newly appoint-

ed Burns branch manager Robert
Close.
Wolgel received a verbal warn-
ing about his hair only a few
days after union officials chose
him to head local efforts to or-
ganize guards. City Burns em-
ployes had been without union
representation since last sum-
mer although all the guards are
union members.
"I was never harassed about
my hair until I became union
representative," W o I g e 1 said
Monday. "I'm convinced there
can be only one reason for it.
It's too much of a coincidence."
Wolgel claims Close and Burns'
Detroit office are trying to throw
the spotlight off more essential
issues which he and other guards
have raised recently.
"'The most important thing to
me is that we filed 13 grievances
and some of themhare very sub-
stantive issues," he said. "The
real issue is the labor practices
of Burns."
Close denied yesterday that
Wolgel's firing w a s politically
motivated. "He made no attempt
to comply with our regulation,'
he said. "There is no correlation
between him being a union mem-
ber or not a union member.'

included salary issues, problems
of job safety, work rules, and
harassment of rebellious guards
by management personnel tak-
ing the form of relocation to less
desirable job assignments.
Wolgel's group says their most
pressing grievance at the mo-
ment is sex discrimination in
hiring and job assignment.
"As of today Burns is in vio-
lation of the contract, because
they have not replied in writing
to our grievances," he said yes-
terday. Close claimed he doesn't
have bargaining power and had
referred the guards' grievances
to the Detroit office. Burns state
manager Raymond Pastula was
unavailable for comment yester-
day.
Close said Wolgel can reapply
for his job if he cuts his hair, but

fired
that if he is rehired it will be
up to the Detroit office to decide
whether he gets his 'seniority and
regular full-time pay back or has
to start as a new employe again.
Wolgel claims Close, who hires
and fires city guards, "changed
the story on me." Two weeks
after he was warned verbally
about his hair, he received a
company statement which said
he would be eligible for either
job assignment, disciplinary lay-
off or termination if he did not
comply with haircut regulations.
Wolgel claims he thought he
had already come into compli-
ance by combing his hair differ-
ently. Two days later, he came
to work and Burns Captain Har-
old Spear took away his Burns

tionship.
The Senate Judiciary Committee
voted unanimously Tuesday to in-
vite Dean to testify on Gray's
nomination.
Gray has been under attack
from Democrats over the FBI's
handling of the June 17 Watergate
bugging incident-in which seven
men are awaiting sentencing on
charges of bugging the Democratic
Party's headquarters - and what
they feel is his political partisan-
ship and closeness to the President.
Dean told the committee in a
letter he would be prepared to
give written .answers to questions
submitted to him, but would not
appear at a hearing, where he
could be cross-examined.
The committee was to have met
later in the day to continue its
hearing into Gray's nomination, but,
postponed the session after receiv-
ing Dean's letter.

was unable to select anyone to fill its Legal
Advocate position last night.
Thomas Bentley, the current advocate,

SGC found itself one vote short of the

impassioned speeches criticizing Jacobs'

After Dobbs threatened to leave if Jacobs
