Movie melodrama
It seems that during the big snowstorm on Saturday, some-
one slipped into the Michigan Theatre and made off with a
"Ladies Parlor" sign. According to theatre manager Jerry Hoag,
the sign is something of an heirloom and simply can not be
replaced. Hoag assures us that his love for the sign is so great
that if it is returned, he will not prosecute. In fact, he hinted
that he might even reward the culprit to the tune of several
free passes to the movies.
RC success
Maybe it's the food they eat, or perhaps it's the dope. What-
ever the reason the people at the Reidential College seem to have
produced a number of rising literary stars. Yesterday we re-
ported that Lynn Eden, formerly of the RC, had been nominated
for a National Book Award. We neglected to mention, however,
that the RC's writer-in-residence, William Christian, was also
nominated for his work "Person and God in a Spanish Valley."
Christian's book is being considered in the category of religion
and philosophy.
Jones' contributions
Carol Jones, Democratic candidate for City Council in the
second Ward, released her list of campaign contributions yester-
day. Jones has to date collected $847.54. Topping the list of
individual donors were Prof. Mike Morris, former Congressional
candidate Mike Stilwagon and the candidate's own parents. Each
gave $50.

Insult to injury
DETROIT Stanley Ingles should have quit while he was
behind. Ingles was slapped with a $25 parking bill at Detroit
Metropolitan airport yesterday. Ingles disputed the charge with
parking attendants who . eventually summoned Wayne County
sheriff's deputies. The deputies checked their records and found
Ingles was wanted on another traffic violation. The car was
searched and the cops turned up 15 plastic bags of heroin valued
at $250,000.
Nixon survives
CONCORD, N.H. - A measure asking for the impeachment
of President Nixon was defeated by the New Hampshire House
yesterday by a vote of 277-22. The resolution sponsored by Rep.
Eugene Daniell, a Democrat, accused Nixon of showing "com-
plete contempt for our constitutional form of government and of
"a deliberate attempt to provoke revolution leading to dictator-
ship." At least one Republican was said to have supported the
God on his side
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Billy Graham yesterday
came out in favor of castration for rapists. "I think that when a
person is found guilty of rape he should be castrated," Graham
told a press conference. "That would stop him pretty quick."
It is unclear whether Graham cleared his speech with God be-
fore delivering it to the press.

The weather picture

ing on your mood. Highs will be in the mid-forties with

Like death and taxes, tuition increases have
become inevitable.
And next month, the University's executive
officers will ask the Regents for yet another
hike in the fees charged to students, President
Robben Fleming told The Daily yesterday.
The size of the increase - which will be the
fourth hike in four years - is not yet deter-
mined. But informed administration sources and
independent estimates indicate it may be sub-
stantial and perhaps as much as ten per cent.
Whatever the average size of the increase,
highly informed sources within the University
administration say that a major revision of fee
structures could be asked, and this could in-
volve raising some fees more than others.
One means of increasing revenue being dis-
cussed is an increase in fees charged to up-
perclass undergraduates, these sources say.
Graduate school fees would be another area

con firms


where fee increases would be made.
The reasons for the proposed changes are
In an interview yesterday, Fleming said that
the University has already lost half a million
dollars in revenue this year because students
are dropping out of school for six months in
order to meet Michigan residency requirements.
But that is not the only fiscal irritant.
Wilbur Pierpont, the University's chief finan-
cial officer, points out that there are three other
major financial problems that either will or
could have a grave impact on the student purse.
By far the most significant is the suit brought
against the University challenging the whole
basis of a separate fee scale for Michigan resi-
dents and out-of-state students.
University officials are pessimistic about the
suit, and they are already bracing themselves
for the possible loss of 11 million dollars in
revenue over three years should the court rule

against them.
The University is also presently facing an
eight million dollar cutback in funds from the
feeral government. While it seems certain that
these cutbacks will be partially offset by pro-
gram reductions, some of this cost will be
passed along to the students.
Lastly, the University has still not received
the Governor's budget recommendation for the.
1973-4 school year. But even when Gov. Milliken
does reveal his financial plans for the Univer-
sity, officials are convinced that the dollars
allocated to the scchool will not be able to offset
the costs of inflation.
Because of all the variables involved, not even
the University's executive officers are quite sure
just how much the fee hike will have to be.
"There's going to be a raise, but we have
no idea how much," said Vice President for Stu-
dent Services Henry Johnson.

High court OKs
school funding
property tax
By AP and Reuter
The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that local property
taxes are a legal means for financing public school systems.
By a 5-4 vote, the high court reversed a U. S. District
Court decision that held the system in Texas unconstitutional
on grounds that children in poor districts got a second-class
education compared with those in wealthy districts.
Voting in the majority were all four Nixon appointees
plus Democratic holdover Potter Stewart.
It is evitable that some localities are going to be blessed
with more taxable assets than others," Justice Lewis Powell
said for the majority.
In cases alleging violation of the constitution's guaran-
tee of equal protection under the laws, Powell said, the court

UN action
in Panama
PANAMA CITY (Reuter) - The
United States last night vetoed a
Security Council resolution calling
for a new Panama Canal treaty to
replace a 1903 agreement granting
America perpetual rights in the
Canal Zone.
It was only the third time in
U.N. history that the United States
has exercised its veto.
The vote in the 15-member coun-
cil was 13 to 1 on the resolution,
which called on Washington to ac-
celerate negotiations with Panama
for a new treaty governing the
U.S.-controlled zone. Britain ab-
U.S. Ambassador John Scali said
he deplored having to use the veto,
but the United States felt U.N.
involvement in a bilateral matter
was not "appropriate or helpful."
The issue of the treaty now is
under negotiation by Washington
and Panama and the resolution -
offered by Panama and seven other1
nations-"oversimplifies a compli-
cated issue," he added.
The Security Council has been
meeting here since last Thursday.

"Education, of course, is not
among the rights afforded explicit
protection under our federal Con-
stitution," Powell said. "Nor do'
we find any basis for saying it is
implicitly so protected."
This takes nothing away from
the "undisputed importance" of
education but forces the Supreme
Court to keep hands off," he said.
While he voted with the major-
ity, Stewart found the position un-
"The method of financing public
schools in Texas, as in almost ev-
ery other state, has resulted in a
system of public education that
can fairly be described as chaotic
and unjust," he said.
"It does not follow, however,'
and I cannot find, that this system
violates the Constitution of the
United States."
Those activists who want to re-'
duce or reform the dependence of
the schools on the local property1
tax will probably shift their em-
phasis from federal courts to state
courts and to state legislatures.
Already there has been action;
even in states where no court has
ordered it. At almost the same'
time the court rendered its de-,
cision, Virginia Gov. Linwood Hol-
ton signed a bill that will increase
state aid per pupil to $628, in an'
effort to make spending per pupil
more equal within the state.

Price of
food chief
of living made its biggest
jump last month in 22 years
-headed by a 5.4 per cent In-
crease in meat prices - and
consumers were told they can
expect further price increases
at least until the end of May.
The cost of living index rose 0.8
percent, compared with 0.5 per-
cent in January, and food costs
rose by 2.2 percent, also the.big-
gest increase since February, 1951,
the Bureau of Labor Statistics said
The price of meat - the object
of buyer'~s boycotts in a few scat-
tered parts of the country - went
up by 5.4 per cent in February and
accounted for 40 per cent of the
rise in food prices.
The grim news on the price front
came only a day after the Nixon
Administration, under increasing
attack over. rapidly rising food
prices, 'had predicted a drop in
food prices later this year.
The figures reflected the first
fell month under President Nixon's
Phase 3 wage-price controls, and
White House officials predicted the
situation will get worse before it
gets better later this year.
"We shouldn't be in the position
of promising you a rose garden,"
said Herbert Stein, the President's
chief economic adviser.
AFL - CIO President George
Meany called the figures shocking,
but said they were not surprising.
"Every housewife in America
knew what was happening," Meany
said in a statement. He urged Con-
gress to insist on food price con-
trols "from farm to market" as a
condition for renewing the Eco-
nomic Stabilization Act.
Consumers noted that in many
parts of the country the price of
chicken has gone up from 29 cents
to 59 cents a pound in the past 18
Prime beef now costs between
one dollar and 75 cents a pound
and two dollars and 29 cents a
pound in the stores, depending on
the cut, and pork chops cost about
one dollar and 40 cents a pound.
The Nixon Administration con-
tends it has already taken all nec-
essary steps to increase food sup-
ples and that the situation will
improve greatly in the next few
But pressure is growing in Con-
gress for further action to control

Libya attacks




Scientists report on evil weed
During the late 1930's consternation gripped the minds of white1
America when the use of the weed, Cannabis sativa I., better known
as marijuana, spread beyond the ghetto confines. The U. S. Govern-{
ment, employing propaganda films like "Reefer Madness", franctically
campaigned to convince the ignorant public that the intake of this'
"evil drug" would assuredly lead to perversion, insanity or the hard-
core criminal instinct.
'Since that time, abundant research, highlighted by the U. S. and
Canadian Commissions Report on Marijuana, has unquestionably dis-
proved these rash assertions.

Libyan Mirage jets fired on an
unarmed U.S. Air Force C-130
transport plane as it flew over
the Mediterranean Sea yesterday
but failed to hit it, the state de-
partment announced.
State department spokesman
Charles Bray, terming the at-
tack "unpardonable," said it
occurred in international air
space 83 miles north of the
Libyan coast and roughly south
of Malta.
The plane, which had taken off
from Athens and returned there
after the attack, dived into a
cloud bank and lost the French-
built fighters, Bray said.
Diplomatic observers speculat-
ed that the Libyan air force may
have confused the plane with an
Israeli aircraft.
There have been rumours that
Libya would retaliate for the
downing by Israeli planes of one
of its commercial airliners, with
the loss of over 100 lives, over

"I want to stress the aircraft
was operating over international
waters and international air space
at the time of the attack. There
could have been no confusion in
anyones mind on that account."
Bray refused repeatedly to say
what the plane was doing.
"It was an unarmed military
aircraft on a military mission,"
he said when asked whether it
was on reconnaissance patrol.

But the OEO said in a statement yesterday that
the accusations still were under investigation.
