Labor for Mogdis?
While the traditionally Democratic United Auto Workers
(UAW) colnty leadership has given its blessing to Bendix-em-
ployed Democratic Frank Mogdis' candidacy for city mayor,
rank and file UAW members at Buhr Machine Tools, plant, re-
veal they voted 74-1 to ask union officials not to endorse Mogdis.
Buhr union steward George Judy says the Buhr workers have
found all Bendix management personnel "strongly anti-union"
and they ftear Mogdis would feel pressure from Bendix to keep
them in line in case of a strike. Mogdis calls the remarks "fal-
Empty cupboards
When members of the Goddard House Co-op went to
their cupboard early yesterday morning they discovered that
it was missing its supply of turkey, ham and pork sausage. It
seems as if some $40 worth of meat and poultry had been pouched
by 4 protein-crazed carnivour who raided Goddard's icebox dur-
ing the night. Although city police had no comment, it seems
probable that the thieves were reacting to the outrageous prices
of meat and poultry. Was Nixon to blame for Mother Hubbard's
lament too?

Sex acid confession
ROME (P) - Italians snapped up copies of "Sex and Con-
fession" yesterday while the Vatican asserted that any bookstore
owners selling it are automatically excommunicated from the
Roman Catholic Church. The book, based on tape-recorded faked
confessions, was already sold out at two of Rome's major book-
stores after being on sale for less than a day. Reacting against
what the Vatican called "soul spies", Pope Paul VI ordered the
excommunication of anyone who, like the authors of "Sex and
Confession" tape-records Roman Catholic confession.
Lennon's lament
NEW YORK (UPI) - Rockmusician Jchn Lennon has not
yet decided whether to appeal a U.S. Immigration Service order
that he leave the country within 60 days, the National Commit-
tee for John and Yoko said yesterday. A spokesman said Len-
non informed the committee from Los Angeles that he and his
wife Yoko Ono were still considering what action they should
take. They have ten days to appeal.
Roller derby?
READING, Pa. - William Weihe was walking on a Reading
street when a man on roller skates and wearing sunglasses roll-
ed by and struck him over the head with a sword. It took seven
stitches to close the gash. Police are investigating.
A lot of bull
MADRID - Matador Luis Segura rushed into a crowded
square here a week ago and killed an escaped bull before anyone
was hurt. Now the police are out searching for the bullfighter,
who had announced his intention of coming out of retirement.
They allege that Segura arranged for the bull to be freed from
a truck while he waited with a photographer.
WASHINGTON - Can a $2,758 hair transplant be tax deduc-

SGC President Bill Jacobs, however,
claims the wording of the proposals will
not confuse students.
"I don't feel that it's unclear as it now
stands on the ballot," says Jacobs.
He said any confusion will be explained
in the SGC newsletter, Michigan Student
News, saying "I can't be responsible for
everyone not doing their homework" if
the explanations are not read by stu-
According to Bill Dobbs, an SGC mem-
ber-at-large who is an outspoken pro-
ponent of voluntary funding, Jacobs and
the present SGC leaders "have done
their damndest to effectively cloud the
issue of funding via the new moderate

proposal of $.75."
"It's unclear what they're going to do
to throw out whatever passes if they
don't like it," he said.
How much SGC needs the student
assessments, in addition to the healthy
sums it receives from the Regents and
its charter airlines and insurance policy
programs, is unclear.
But SGC apparently was w o r r i e d
enough about the outcome to include a
program making all college governments
subject to voluntary funding.
Jacobs explained the proposal as

During a heated SGC discussion last
week, however, LSA Student Govern-
ment member{!Bob Stephens contested
the inclusion. of the proposal, calling it
an "attempt to pull all student govern-
ments into your leaky boat to help you

Stephens also said the issue of volun-
tary funding for the LSA government
was resolved when students approved
a proposal for mandatory funding i the
fall of 1971.
The proposal was stricken from the

in publication dispute

In what appears to be a greater push for
publication and a national reputation, two as-
sistant English 'professors have been denied
Professors Joseph Mullin and John Raeburn,
described by a colleague as "two demon-
strably effective people in the classroom,"
were recommended for promotion by a major-
ity of the English department executive com-
mittee. By recommending the two for tenure,
the committee gave approval to their teaching,
departmental service and publication, the
three criteria needed for promotion.
Passed on to the Literary College (LSA)
Executive Committee for final approval, the
two tenure requests were turned down. A
subsequent appeal to the college also failed.

Although the college policy is not to comment
on individual tenure cases, it is considered
common knowledge among English department
members that the LSA committee considered
the candidates to be lacking publication.
The college's decision highlights the struggle
which exists over publication and its relation-
ship to tenure.
On the one side there are those who agree
with the college's supposed equal weighting
of all three requirements; on the other, those
who believe too great an emphasis has been
placed on publication in recent years-at the
expense of teaching.
"I do not quarrel with the criteria in the col-
lege," says English department chairman Rus-

Tracking' brews controversy
in Ann Arbor public schools

The method of placing high school students.
into general or accelerated courses - usually
called "tracking"-still exists on a large scale
in Ann Arbor schools although some administra-
tors believe it is banned.
Tracking is more subtle than it once was,
perhaps, but its effects-racial and economic
segregation-are not.
aMniir.P, un ,di Fl,,. of a CfiA A_..-.. D._..Rnrr

Tracking usually begins at the junior high level
in Ann Arbor on the basis of intelligence tests,
teacher recommendations, and past performance.
The problem is that once someone is deter-
mined to be "better off" educationally by being
in the "lower" or "higher" tracks, it is esoe-
cially difficult for the student to get out of that
track and into another one, particularly the
higher one.
