One year ago, the Human
Rights party astounded the es-
tablishment and elected two
young radicals to city hall.
In retrospect, it was not a
surprising victory.
The new party had everything
going for it-the magic of novel-
ty; a youthful, tightly disciplined
organization; unity; and money.
But that was a year ago. To-
day, HRP is a deeply divided and
financially poorer organization.
Since last August the party has

Internal wrangling, money woes hurt campaign


Suit filed
SGC attorney Tom Bentley has filed suit in the Michigan
Court of Appeals asking that all meetings of the Regents be
"open to the people." The suit, which is co-sponsored by .Daily
editors Eugene Robinson and Christopher Parks, was announced
earlier in the week. First hearing on the case will be April 3.
The Court of Appeals will also hear a joint Daily-SGC suit on
publication of salary lists, next Tpesday.
Mayor .Bob's plan
Democratic Mayor Robert Harris has announced his support
for funding of a low-cost abortion clinic run by women. However,
rather than fund the Community Women's Clinic as the Human
Rights Party and many women are requesting, Harris wants to
fund Family Planning Medical Services, Inc., which is run by
long-time local Democrat Eugene Power. Harris says Family
Planning could be revamped so it can be run by women, with
services on an "ability-to-pay" basis. Supporters of the Commun-
ity Women's Clinic are interested but suspicious.
More money madness
And what hath befallen the $2875 given to SGC ex-Treasurer
Dave Schaper to fund the nonexistent Temptations concert? As of
yesterday afternoon, Council President Bill Jacobs was still
convinced it was safely deposited in "an outside account," but
Vice President for minority affairs Lee Gill declared with equal
self-assurance that his Committee for Black Concerns (CBC)
possessed the money. CBC had originally planned to co-sponsor
the Temps concert back in September, but the plan fizzled, and
Gill says no one's asked him to give the $2875 back to SGC yet.
Has Jacobs been misled? Says Gill, "What the hell does Bill
know anyway?" Jacobs couldn't be reached for comment on
that remark.
The Harvey Saga
In today's chapter of the Harvey Saga, Doug is confronted
with a spectre from his past, as though his current troubles
weren't eiough. Just as he was getting over the shock of his
unfriendly reception in Indian River, an old nemesis-Sheriff
Fred Postill-has cropped up to cause more trouble. Postill says
Doug destroyed personnel records and was responsible for the
illegal disposal of 12 county-owned guns. Doug sez it jus' ain't so.
The Daily flunks
Yesterday, in quite a show of mathematical ineptitude, we
computed the increase in campus crime between 1971 and 1972
to be roughly 20 per cent while the increase, in fact, is closer
to 25 per cent. Our mathematical experts, who only survived
high school algebra through shameless cheating, arrived at the
erroneous figure by computing -the -increase-against the larger
rather than the smaller figure.
Happenings.. ..
Sports Editor Dan Borus tells us today is "the dullest
day ever in sports." To tell the truth, things don't look much
brighter elsewhere either . . . there is, of course, the World's
Fair '73 which is going into its second day today out at Burns
Park Elementary School on Wells St. from noon to midnight ..
and there are a couple of unusual parties in town one of which
is the "Bullshit Party" at Sigma Chi's St. Patricks Day Explosion
(next door to the Union) with draught beer. Admission is $2 per
person with refund if you don't have fun . . . so relax, unwind,
and go to a party, or make your own party.
Correspondent injured
Peter Kalisher-well known Paris correspondent for the
Columbia Broadcasting System-suffered a fractured skull in
an auto accident yesterday. Kalisher was on the way to Le Bour-
get Airport to cover ,the departure of Viet Cong Foreign Minister
Mme. Nguyen Thi Binh whan his car was hit by a truck. He is
reported in serious condition.
Nicotine notes
America's suicidal smokers just keep puffing away. Recently
released Department of Agriculture statistics show cigarette con-
sumption up to a record 565 billion smokes last year. In case
you're interested, that works out to an average of half a pack
per day for every American adult .. . and from Bonn, we learn
that German males are also smoking more than ever before,
despite doctors' warnings that smoking can result in impotence
State Senator John Decamp of Nebraska is trying to pursuade
his colleagues to make the death penalty in that state mandatory
for such crimes as murder, arson, robbery, kidnapping, hijacking
and burglary., Decamp's proposal does have its humanitarian side,
however. It would give the condemned prisoner the right to
choose suicide rather than being executed.
Killer Snow White
Thirty-year-old Svetislava Kusakovic gave birth in a most
unusual way in Valjevo, Yugoslavia yesterday. Kusakovic, who
was eight months pregnant, was walking home through five foot
snowbanks when she began having birth pains. Unable to call
for help, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl alone in the snow.
The girl was named "Snezhana"-Serbo-Croation for Snow White.

Last Tango in Sardinia?
IGLESIAS, Sardinia - Italian sex education has taken a
fruity twist. School teacher Emma Gallozzi was sentenced to 25
months in prison for giving sex lessons to young boys in exchange
for oranges from nearby groves. Police collared five youths
looting the forbidden fruit, which they explained was intended
for the 50-year-old Gallozzi, a housewife.

Peking offers
massage parlor
withno extras
PEKING-Peking has its own massage parlors,
but a visit to one, situated inside a Chinese bath-
house, provides quick reassurance they bear no
resemblance to the lurid establishments flourishing
throughout Asia and the United States.
The most popular bathhouse here, both for
Chinese and foreigners, is the "Rei King," opposite
the "Red Flag" movie theater in busy Dung Dan
street near the center of the city.
A visit to the "Rei King" with two members of
Peking's foreign community, both attractive Cana-
dian girls, reveals-to no-ones surprise-that the
'kind of titillating diversion often found in bathhouses
and massage parlors in Bangkok, Manila or Hong
Kong is missing here.
In fact, the total lack of prurience and the
unself-consciousness in contemporary Chinese so-
ciety usually leaves the foreigner feeling mildly ill
at ease.
Though foreigners are stared at by Chinese
everywhere else in China, no-one seems to take any
notice in the bathhouse.
Having bought a ticket for 1.50 yuan (about 80
cents) the visitor is escorted through a hall lined
with large mirrors where Chinese girls comb their
long tresses.
In the. drying room, the girls mingled with Chinese
women clad only in short towels. "They accepted
us completely," one said. "Maybe being without
ones clothes makes everyone more relaxed.'
A visit to the men's section, screened by a wooden
partition, revealed similar bathrooms, obviously
from a more luxury-conscious age, and there was
also a communal shower.
In the massage room, where sexes are not segre-
gated, the girls matter-of-factly shed their slacks
and, clad in tights and blouses, were swathed in

The Regents yesterday approved a new set of conduct rules
for the University community, thus ending the two-year tenure
of the controversial harsher Interim Rules.
_ The rules, passed by a 6-2 vote, were drafted by the Univer-
sity Council-and were almost three years in the making.
In other action, the Regents:
! Passed a compromise subsidization of the University
Cellar, voting the store two years of continued funding by rolling
assessment with a possible one-year extension, instead of the five-
year continuation the Cellar had requested;
* Voted down 5-3 a long-standing proposal to request racial
identification on University job application forms; and
9 Squelched by a vote of 7-1 the Student Government Council
proposal requesting that its president and vice-president be granted
non-voting seats on the Board of Regents.
The UC conduct rules detail offenses punishable by the Uni-
versity judiciary system. They will replace the Interim Rules
imposed by the Regents during the Black Action Movement strike
in the spring of 1970, at the height of campus protest activity here.
At that time the Regents appointed the student-faculty UC to
draw up the conduct rules, but the code has been in the process

of construction and ratification for three years.
The code has been approved by SGC and the Senate Assem-
bly - the faculty governing body - ratified it last month by a
vote of 42-3. However, the strdent judiciary designed to imple-
ment the code, under process of organization for the past two
years, cannot operate until it names its officers. The officers
must then be approved by Assembly, SGC and the Regents.
The judiciary consists of a student-faculty Court of Appeals
all conduct cases.
Once the conditions for implementation of the conduct rules
are met, President Robben Fleming must declare it operative. If
not, the Interim Rules can remain effective indefinitely.
Actions prohibited by the code include "physical force", "in-
terference" with any person engaged in University activities, arid
continuing after an order to desist activity which the President
has determined on "clear evidence" may "imminently violate"
any of the rules.
Penalties to be imposed on convicted violators by the judic-
iary include warning, censure, fine, probation, suspension, work
assignment, restitution or expulsion.

FBI Watergate file
By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Attorney General Richard Kleindienst yesterday
agreed to provide Senate investigators with the full file of the FBI
probe into the bugging at the Democratic National Committee Head-
quarters last year.
But access to the files will be limited to senior members and
senior staff aides of the special Senate Select Committee which is
investigating the break in at the Watergate Hotel and alleged political
espionage against Democrats during the 1972 Presidential election
The arrangement was, worked out with the committee chairman,
Sam Ervin (D-N.C.), and Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee, the senior

U' evicts
Two more students have been
evicted from their dorms for in-
volvement in drug-related robber-
ies, The Daily has learned.
The lease terminations follow
fast on the heels of the recent
eviction of East Quad resident
Chris Hoitt for the same reason.
The newly evicted students -
Greg Lichwardt from Bursley and
an unidentified student from East
Quad-were served with 24-hour
eviction notices late Thursday and
early yesterday, according to Uni-
versity Housing Director John
Both were victims in the same
Feb. 27 Bursley robbery in which
$150 worth of marijuana was stolen
at knifepoint.
Lichwardt, according to Feld-
kamp, has had no previous record
of complaints for drug use or
The East Quad resident, whose
name Feldkamp last night refused
to disclose, has also had no pre-
vious recordalthough his former
roommate was the victim in a
November drug robbery also in
East Quad.
Feldkamp says the unidentified
student admits to drug dealing,
but claims he had no role in the
earlier robbery.
Norman Snustad, coordinator of
East Quad, offered no comment,
saying he "did not know" of the
recent eviction.
Lichwardt was not available for
comment, atlhough earlier this
I week he refused to discuss the
situation and any action he may
be taking.
The newest rash of hard-line
stands concerning evictions seem-
ingly contradicts statements made
by Feldkamp in January.
-At that time, Feldkamp encour-
aged students to report the rob-
beries, and claimed actioni taken
against students would be minimal.
"In terms of the police, it would
probably be nothing. At the dorm,
it would probably be nothing also,
except a warning," Feldkamp had

anyone wants to come down that
hard on the students."

parent administrative about-face,
