Vol. LXXXIII, No. 139 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Tuesday, March 27, 1973 Ten Cents
&c IYOUSEE NEWS HAPPNC -LL76Dm y
No strange bedfellows
Politics in Ann Arbor apparently aren't the kind that make
strange bedfellows, despite encouraging rumors to the contrary.
Associates of Second Ward HRP 'candidate Frank Schoichet
spread stories yesterday to the effect that Schoichet had dallied
overlong last night at the East Quad room of Carol .Tones, his
Democratic opponent for councilperson. Alas, both Jones and
Schoichet firmly quashed this tale. Jones admits to Schoichet
"partying" for about an hour and a half in her company, but
states he left at the sober hour of 12:45 a.m. "Listen," Jones
said, "I'd be very upset if word of this got around."
Snowman rumor quashed
With the coming of spring, the great question that has
plagued us through the winter has found resolution. Ann Arbor's
Abominable Snowman has been revealed: he is not a snowman
at all, but a grad student who was seen on three occasions run-
ning about in the vicinity of Cram circle. Why the "fuzzy, huge"
appearance described by our informant? The man, it seems, is
quite tall and wears high sneakers and wooly sweatpants when he
runs laps at night. Why at night? "Insomnia," he says. And may
we all sleep better, at least until next winter .
There's another hat in the SGC presidential ring and it bears
the name of Bill Dobbs, long time SGC honcho and man-about-
town. Dobbs announced his candidacy as a write-in yesterday and
is basing his campaign on the claim that: "All the other candi-
dates are corrupt, manipulators or just plain stupid."
Today is proud to announce that starting today our readers
will be serviced by ace West Quad weatherman Bill Marino and
his assistant Dennis Dismachek. The pair, who have achieved
considerable success in their closed circuit prognostications on
the West Quad bulletin board, are meterology students in the en-
gineering school. To mark their joining our staff we are chang-
ing the name of our forecast from The Weather Picture to the
more simple: A2's Weather.
Faculty wants 9% raise
The Committee on the Economic Status of the Faculty has
asked for a 9.2 per cent pay hike this year for the Big U's 2,575
teaching faculty. They'll be lucky. The Governor has provided
for raises less than a third of those asked for, and other financial
considerations may bring salary rises down so low that, taking
inflation into account, faculty members will be taking a de facto
'Mona lists contributors
Fifth Ward Democratic hopeful Mona Walz yesterday re-
leased a list of her campaign contributors, and the figures in-
dicate she's doing quite well. Total gifts are $1,298 of which half
consists of handouts of less than 12 bucks. The biggest gift was
one of $100.hNotable contributors includekState Rep. Perry Bul-
lard ($10), former city councilman Leroy Cappaert ($1), and

SAIGON-After five years as South Vietnam's best known p-
litical prisoner, Truong Dinh Dzu has returned home. Dzu, a
peace candidate in the 1967 election, was sentenced to five years
at hard labor in May of 1968 for "advocating negotiations with
the Viet Cong." Dzu was eligible for release from Chi Hoa Prison
in Saigon last May, but was held there until his wife sent letters
to President Thieu and several legislators, stating that his term
was up and that Thieu's own regime has negotiated with the Viet
Cong. Dzu remains in seclusion and is reported to be "sick and

Yesterday, he took up the matter with James C. Fletcher, space
agency chief who uses a chauffeur-driven 1973 four-door govern-
ment Chrysler to take him to and from work, among other things.
Fletcher said he does paper work every minute of the 90 minutes
he spends daily on the road. " . . . What's your salary," Prox-
mire asked. "$42,500," Fletcher said. "That's a very good salary,
the same as mine," said Proxmire who runs and walks to and
from the office everyday. "How can I justify this to the average
family in Wisconsin? Should I ask the average family to pay his
taxes for this?" Proxmire asked. "The taxpayer is always get-
ting his money's worth," Fletcher replied.

Student Power' the key issue in
LSA government, housing election
By DAN BIDDLE and CINDY HILL
This week's Student Government Council elec-
tion may be remembered for having the most
candidates and the least voters in recent SGC
A total of 32 candidates are running for presi-
dent, executive vice-president, and five open
member-at-large seats on council.
All 32 appear to be hoping that the election
nets a somewhat higher turnout than the seven
per cent of the student body that voted for SGC
On the ticket are some familiar campus party
acronyms-the Coalition of Moderates and Lib-
erals Party (CLAMP), the right-wing Responsible
Alternative Party (RAP), and SGC member
David Hornstein's Bullshit Party. There is also
a quartet of rookies-the Stop Taxation-Open
Programs ticket (STOP), the Mad Hatters' Tea
Party, the Student Rights Party (SRP), and
Engin Council President Ro Nagey's Time and
Without exception, the candidates have center-
ed their campaigns on what has been variously
described as a need to "remove the Council's
elitist leadership," to "end SGC's inefficiency and
inactivity," to "restore credibility and honesty,"
and to "clear up the stench of corruption that
hangs over the SGC offices."
CLAMP presidential candidate David Faye and
his vice presidential candidate, Bart Moorstein,
say they will seek to "choose between wrong and
right rather left and right," and support optional

Student power in literary college governance
is the key issue in the LSA Student Government
election which starts today.
Proposed changes in the LSA power structure
lead the platforms of all four contending parties.
However, in general, the literary college elec-
tions seem plagued by the close similarity of the
parties' stands on substantive issues.
Much of the controversy in the LSA election
disappeared last week when a proposal for volun-
tary funding of the government was invalidated
-although too late to be stricken from the ballot.
LSA government officers are asking students
not to vote on the question, however, fearing
that literary college administrators may cut their
funds if voluntary funding finds voter support.
Candidates of the Program for Educational and
Social Change (PESC), the Mad Hatters Tea
Party (MHTP) and the Bullshit Party all stress
the importance of the proposed introduction of
student representation in LSA policy - making
Those functions are now controlled exclusively
by the college faculty in a monthly "town-meet-

grams mean anything," PESC candidate Lisa

host of election code violations,
ballot entanglements and charges
of illegality have preceded the
