Yokes on you
George Glassman, a freshman in Markley, decided yester-
daykwould be a good day for a political joke, and the Michigan
weekly lottery gave him the perfect ammunition. Sometime in
the morning, Glassman called up a radio station to get the
numbers, which he subsequently put on his wall in large print.
Later in the day, he asked a friend down the hall to call The
Daily and get the numbers. When the caller saw that the num-
bers, 890 and 246 matched the numbers on Glassman's wall, he
went absolutely beserk. For a brief time Glassman's room was
jammed with people eager to congratulate him on his new-
found fortune. After watching the scene for a while, Glassman
spilled the beans. At last report he was still alive.
Worse than Welby
Roaches-those little black creatures that wreck havoc
wherever they go-have apparently been on the rampage in
the Med school's animal experiment lab. As is often the case
with the scientists, the people in the labs have divided into two
schools of thought on the problem. Some feel the use of insec-
ticides by exterminators could prove harmful to the elaborate
and expensive experiments being conducted. Others are of the
opinion that the cockroaches carry filth and must be eliminated.
Presently pest-control experts on the scene are concentrating
their efforts on reducing the roach population to an acceptable
level.
Intermural news
The Advisory Committee on Recreation, Intramurals and
Club Sports (ACRICS) has decided to seek authority to con-
struct not one, but two new intramural buildings-one on North
Campus and one on Central Campus. According to plans laid
out by the committee's site and program sub-committee, em-
phasis will be placed on the Central Campus building which is
slated to receive two of every three dollars spent on the two
structures. ARICS is requesting interested groups and individuals
to contribute their ideas in writing to the ACRICS site and pro-
gram committee care of Rm. 427, Michigan Union.
A correction
In our story yesterday about a projected tuition increase
at the University we reported that Governor Milliken has yet
to make a budget recommendation for the 1973-74 school year.
The Governor has, in fact, made a recommendation but the
amount of state money to be given to the University remains
uncertain as the legislature has yet to make its decision.
Happenings .. .
. . . today are topped by a prestigious academic event, the
initiation of 178 University students into Phi Beta Kappa. The
ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. in the Michigan League.
Prof. Kenneth Boulding, a University of Colorado economist
will deliver the main address of the evening . . . another big
academic happening will get underway today at 420 Hutchins
Hall. The event is a conference dealing with various aspects of
Communist China. China specialists from this University will be
joined by scholars from around the country for the discus-
sions . . in less highbrow circles, the Human Rights Party
is giving a film benefit at the Fifth Forum at 11:30 p.m. The
film is Joseph Heller's Catch 22. Tickets are $2 and are on sale
at the HRP office, 516 E. William and the Fishbowl from 11
a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance
finally there will be a night of International Folk Dancing at
Barbour Gym beginning at 8 p.m.
One step closer
OLYMPIA, Wash.-Washington yesterday became the 29th
state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. The amendment
which guarantees women equal rights in employment, govern-
ment and other areas must be ratified by 38 states before it
becomes law. After initial success, the measure has been run-
ning into trouble of late. The trouble has come in the form of a
well-organized women's lobbying -group which has . been working
to defeat the amendment. They argue that passage of the bill
will subject women to the draft and will destroy the American
family as we now know it.
End of an era
LONDON-Rolls Royce Motors-the most famous of all the
luxury limousine builders-was put up for auction yesterday.
Whoever buys the company under terms of the contract will be
obligated to change its name. Reports are circulating that either
an American or Japanese company will take over the failing
enterprise.

SAIGON - North Vietnam said last night the
Communists will release tomorrow the last group
of 138 American POWs, if all U.S. troops are with-
drawn by Sunday, three days ahead of the dead-
line set in the Paris cease-fire accord.
The Communists had declared earlier yesterday
they were suspending prisoner releases because
the United States went back on a deal to with-
draw U.S. troops by the weekend.
Whether the two sides had resolved their dif-
ferences in time for tomorrow's prisoner release
was unclear late last night.
The 138 prisoners had been scheduled for re-
lease in two groups tomorrow and Sunday in Hanoi
in exchange for the accelerated U.S. troop pullout.
The United States first agreed to the plan, pro-
posed by North Vietnam and the Viet Cong. But

later, on orders from Washington, the Americans
reversed themselves.
A U.S,. spokesman said the United States "need-
ed additional time to move U.S. troops out in an
orderly fashion." The speedup-pullout initially
agreed to represented the opinion of the U.S.
Command in Saigon that the troops could move
out fast enough, he added, but word from Wash-
ington changed that assessment.
The U.S. representatives also imposed new con-
ditions for final U.S. troop withdrawals, including
demands for a list of nine Americans captured in
Laos and the date and place they will be released.
U.S. officials said they would not start the final
troop pull-out, which is tied to the release of
the last group of U.S. POWs, until they received
a list of the remaining prisoners held in all of

Indochina--including Laos-and the first group had
been handed over.
But the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese said
that, under the Paris peace agreement, the re-
lease of seven American servicemen and two
civilians in Laos must be negotiated with local
pro-Communist Pathet Lao forces.
The Communist officials refused to hand over
a list of U.S. prisoners they were scheduled to
deliver yesterday and said they would only re-
lease the prisoners at the same time as the U.S.
forces began their final departure.
A White House spokesman agreed that the ques-
tion of prisoners in Laos was not covered by the
ceasefire agreement but said there were under-
standings between the Americans and the North
Vietnamese regarding their release.

Spokesman Gerald Warren referred to a state-
ment by President Nixon on Jan. 23 that the
United States had received assurances American
prisoners of war in Laos 'vould be released within
the 60-day period.
A Pentagon spokesman told reporters that U.S.
officials in Saigon had insisted on a schedule for
their release before resuming operation count-
down-the Defense Department name for the troop
withdrawal program.
"All we know is that in raising the possibility
of (a prisoner) release by Sunday, they (the
Communists) were not prepared or not able to
tell us that those held in Laos would be included,"
Defepse Department spokesman Jerry Friedheim
said.

First drug arrests in
dorms In two years
By DAN BIDDLE
State and local police arrested three students yesterday
morning at Bursley Hall, South Quad and West Quad in the
first on-campus drug arrests here in at least two years.
West Quad resident Richard Wood, '75, John roster, '76,
of South Quad, and Lanson Carrothers, '75, of Bursley, were
awakened in their rooms shortly after 8 a.m. and .charged
with delivery as hashish, LSD, and marijuana respectively.
Police refused to indicate the quantity of drugs involved.
The charges stem from purchases of drugs made by state
police undercover agents in the dorms earlier this year.
The three arrests apparently, indicate a change of policy
by University officials and/or state and local law enforce-
ment agencies concerning the role of police on the campus,,
where dorms have widely been -_ -

"If anyone believes there's been
such a hand-off policy, they've got
false information," he said in an
interview last night.
But Feldkamp added that he wasi
"mildly surprised" by the arrests:
and couldn't remember the last
time a student had been arrested
inside a dormitory.
W h i l e Feldkamp maintained
that there was "no University par-
ticipation of any kind" in yester-I
day's police action, West Quad Di-
rector Leon West said police "had'
informed a University official" but
would not indicate which official.

that "some officials did bring the

to FBI agents investigating' the
involvement of a former White
House aide in the bugging of the
Democratic Party headquarters.
The disclosure came when Sen.

if Dean had lied to an FBI agent
last June in saying he would have
to check to see if Watergate de-

Pioneer High School suffered a
second day of strife in a week yes-
terday when a fight broke out
between black and white students.
In another racial eruption Wed-
nesday, four, teachers were in-
jured, one hospitalized.
Police arrested three students in
yesterday's battle. Seven students
were reported injured.
The brawl broke out in a student
smoking lounge and spread to
various stairwells and corridors in

the building, according to various
observers. Teachers on the second
floor of the building locked the
classroom doors as a precautionary
measure.
Earlier, students had come into
a class in progress and attacked
a student. When the class' teacher
attempted to break it up, she was
hit and her hearing aid ripped off.
The number of students involved
in the conflict was unclear.
A spokesman for the Ann Arbor,
School System said that there werej
75 students in the hallways push-I

Nixon

not to attend annual ash Bash

By MARTIN PORTER
A spokesman for President Nixon yester-
day denied all rumors that the President
will be attending the second annual Ann
Arbor Hash Bash to be held on the Diag
April 1.
In a belligerent tone, a White House
spokesman said, "The President is not
planning to attend any type of bash in
Ann Arbor . . . even if he was I wuldn't

but the weather looks good and there are
large supplies of Morroccan and some
Black Primo hash in town."
Activities proposed for this year's gala
event include an artist's chalk contest, a
yo-yo contest, and a community, record
swap. information tables for the city elec-
tions on April 2 may also be set up. Al-
though it might be assumed that the event
would have little effect on the city elec-
tions. some candidates are not taking a

to attend since it will be "a good chance
to remind people to vote."
D1avid Hornstein, the famous power-
crazed Emperor of the Student Govern-
ment Council Bullshit, Party contingent,
looks at the event from a different per-
spective.
Of course the Hash Bash will reinforce
and further the goals of the Bullshit party,
but this is not that important; the Hash
Bash will he instrumental for furthering

More police were called.
The faculty meanwhile met yes-
in the halls to vacate within seven
minutes. When a few students re-
mained, they were threatened with
arrest.
One student was then arrested
and charged with trespassing. Two
other students were arrested on
charges of assault and carrying a
concealed weapon.

Though the University medical school has increasingly accepted
women and blacks in recent years, the road to admittance for the
bulk of its applicants is annually getting rockier.
Medical schools nationwide-after admitting half of their appli-
cants between 1950 and 1970-admitted one third of their applicants
in 1972, according to Dr. Colin Campbell, assistant dean for student
affairs.
Campbell predicted that "in a couple of years, the percentage of
students accepted could get as low as 30 per cent."
