Cops slam candidates
In a press release issued yesterday, the Ann Arbor Police
Officers Association slammed recent pledges by mayoral candi-
dates to fire Police Chief Walter Krasny if elected. The cops
were apparently referring to a promise made by Democratic
mayoral hopeful Franz Mogdis that if he wvere elected, Krasny
would definitely be on his way out; and to similar hints made by
HRP's candidate for mayor, Be Kaimowitz. The statement fur-
ther urged voters to elect "responsible, representative leadership
on Monday." With two candidates out of their favor, and Re-
publican James Stephenson the only hopeful who wants to retain
Krasny's services, we wonder who they were referring to.
Teachers axed
One hundred teachers and 17 administrators found themselves
without jobs yesterday as a result of belt tightening by the Ann
Arbor School Board. Director of School Personnel Stanley Vubel
told the Daily the cut-backs were the only way the school system
can meet its reduced budget. Larry Stewart, president of the
Ann Arbor Education Association, begged to differ, character-
izing the cuts as "the first concrete step to dismantle the Ann
Arbor Schools." His organization plans to file a grievance against
the board.
Franz hits back
Democratic mayoral hopeful Franz Mogdis hit back yesterday
at opponents who have charged that his drug control program
constitutes preventive detention. The proposal, Mogdis said, calls
for "voluntary, not manditory" urine tests for those accused of
property crimes. If the tests reveal heroin by-products and the
suspect agrees to treatment, normal bail would be reduced.
"There is absolutely no penalty for refusing to take the test or
refusing to enter a rehabilitation program," Mogdis said.
Proposal A boosted
No issue since mom and apple pie has attracted the almost
incredible across-the-board support which seems to be flocking
to the mass transit proposal on the April ballot. Yesterday no
less than 25 community groups-including ROTC students, the
} Tennants Union, the League of Women's Voters, and the Council
for Black Concerns-all announced their endorsement. The pro-
posal calls for a 2.5 mill tax increase to fund personalized door-
to-door bus service in the city.
Hash Fest notes

Dog Orgy. Mysterious leaflets signed only with a paw print have
appeared around campus urging students to bring their dogs to

fest. Yesterday's entrys included the Birdland II Board of Direc-
tory ("you'll be hearing more from us"), Rudy's Raiders ("most

Club . . . the Monday Night Boys of Oklahoma announced (with

Gunman in
Fahr case
Special To The Daily
MILWAUKEE-Police here think they have found
the missing link that connects interstate fugitive
Orville Leland Davis, caught by police in a gun
battle early yesterday, to missing University student
Melanie Fahr.
According to Deputy Inspector Kenneth Marple,
of the Milwaukee Police Department, investigators
have discovered a YMCA ticket issued in Toledo,
Ohio, Sunday, to a man fitting Davis' description.
The ticket was found in Fahr's automobile, a 1970
yellow Chevelle, which was abandoned by a gunman
early Wednesday morning in an exchange of gun-
fire with a Shorewood, Wisconsin policeman.
The discovery of the ticket, issued last Sunday
night to a man calling himself "John Tucker," sent
an Ann Arbor police detective racing to Toledo to
interrogate the manager of the YMCA.
The YMCA manager tentatively identified Tucker
as fitting the description of Davis.
According to the manager, Tucker checked into
the hostel Sunday night and left in the late after-
noon the following day.
See related story, Page 8
The evidence is considered especially important
because police and FBI agents have so far been
unable to get a good finger print of Davis from
Fahr's automobile.
Thus, the YMCA ticket may be the only link
police have between Davis and Fahr.
Though police are being cautious in their public
statements they are clearly working on the theory
that Davis, using the name Tucker, found his way
to Ann Arbor that evening, where he abductedsFahr.
Fahr, a 20-year old junior oceanography major
in the engineering school, is still missing and police
appear to be without leads as to her whereabouts.
Officers in Wisconsin and Michigan, and agents
of the FBI have launched an intensive search for
the woman.
The capture of Davis came early yesterday morn-
ing after a dramatic gunbattle in downtown Mil-
