Dope fact-finding?
The crowd at tomorrow's Hash Bash may include some very
prestigious guests if our man in Lansing has anything to say
about it. State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) yesterday in-
vited all the members of the House and Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee to join him at the festival. Perry suggested the members
use the occasion as a fact-finding mission and for the more
courageous he hinted some personal experimentation might be in
order. Perry hopes that the experience may persuade some legis-
lators that the use of marijuana. and hashish should not be
treated as a criminal offense.
Dog days
Thursday morning in our Today item on the Hash Bash we
noted that a dog orgy would be included among Sunday's
scheduled events. A number of people from the Humane Society
called up yesterday and pointed out that the orgy could have a
number of rather disastrous consequences. First of all, the callers
. mentioned that a number of dog fights might be started. More
importantly they added that the puppies produced by the dogs'
activities would likely be unwanted and hence would have to be
destroyed. Thus we urge all those attending the festivals to
leave at home any dogs that might be in heat. Your dog will
thank you for it.
Honeywell boycotte1
A resolution' asking for a city and community boycott of
Honeywell Inc. products was approved by the City Council Thurs-
day night. The ban is to continue until "that company ceases and
desists the production and development of anti-personnel wea-
pons." The boycott is part of a nationwide drive organized by
Clergy and Laity Concerned. All four Democrats and both Human
Rights Party members voted for the resolution.
Raffle sale
A local organization has announced the initiation of a raffle
sale, the proceeds from which will go towards the construction
of a children's hospital in North Vietnam. Members of the Ann
Arbor branch of the Nguyen Van Troi Children's Hospital Com-
mittee will be selling raffle tickets around the campus for a
drawing to be held on April 13. The organization is a world-wide
body whose goal is to build a hospital in Hanoi. Members of the
committee plan to go to Hanoi and personally take part in the
A correction
In a story in Thursday's Daily concerning the suit against
Write-on, Inc. we reported that University General Council Rod-
erick Daane had been asked to show cause for his suit. In fact,
the court directed Write-on to show cause why the injunction
against it should not be continued. The court subsequently ruled
to continue that injunction. Thursday's story also stated that the
suit was only directed against the company's Ann Arbor office.
It is in fact directed against the company's statewide operation.
The Daily regrets these errors.

Poetic license
SAN FRANCISCO - The great Edward Arlington Robinson
once wrote a poem about the tragic life of Richard Cory. Yester-
day, Cory's modern-day namesake ran ilto some tragedy of his
own. San Mateo County sheriff's deputies said they received a
tip that Cory, a fugitive from federal prison, was at the San
Francisco International Airport. They subsequently had Cory
paged over the public address system and asked him to pick up
the white telephone. Cory answered the call and within seconds
two deputies, slipped the handcuffs on him for a trip to the county
jail. Where is Robinson when we need him?

President Nixon's new ceiling
on meat prices drew mixed reac-
tion from farm and meat in-
dustry leaders, organized labor,
and Democratic and Republican
members of Congress.
Many of those who criticized
the ceiling believed it might lead
to even higher meat prices by
discouraging producers from in
creasing production. Others said
that meat had become the tar-
get for what really was a prob-
lem of widespread inflation.
Farm and meat industry lead-
ers were especially angry with
Nixon's move. Elton Berck,

The consensus of boycott or-
ganizers in various parts of the
country was that meat prices
should be reduced, not stabiliz-
at the current high level.
This view was echoed by AFL-

CIO President George Meany,
who said the only fair thing
would be to roll back meat pric-
es -- now at a 22-year high-
to where they stood before the
recent inflationary spiral began.
Rep. Wright Patman (D-Tex.),
chairman of the House-Senate
Joint Economic Committee, call-
ed on Nixon to roll back food
rates and impose a freeze on
rent and interest rates.
"The entire economy is in need
of a strong enforceable stabiliz-
ation program and this cannot
be accomplished by a freeze on
a few items," he explained.

MILWAUKEE - Police investigating the ap-
parent Tuesday morning abduction of Univer-
sity student Melanie Fahr seem to have no
idea where she is and little hope that she is
still alive.
That was the picture that emerged yes-
terday at police headquarters in Milwaukee
as the search for Fahr entered its fourth day.
The prime suspect in the case, and the
man who may hold the only clues to Fahr's
whereabouts, lies in a Milwaukee hospital
bed in the aftermath of a shootout with police
Thursday. The man, 31-year-old Orville Leland
Davis, has refused to respond to police ques-
tions about the case.
Davis has been linked to Fahr through a
YMCA ticket found in Fahr's abandoned au-



tomobile. The ticket, issued in Toledo, Ohio,
has been traced to a man using the name
"John Tucker." The manager of the YMCA
identified a photograph of Davis as being
"I believe Fahr's dead and I believe that
sonofabitch Davis killed her," said Milwaukee
police Deputy Inspector Kenneth Marple, who
is leading the investigation. "When you've
been in this business as long as I have, your
intuition starts to tell you things. My intuition
is that this girl is dead."
But as Marple is quick to admit, there is
no evidence that Fahr is alive or dead.
The latest revelation in the police investi-
gation is that there are approximately 400
unaccounted miles on Fahr's odometer.
Police made this estimate on the basis of an

A number of local merchants
have expressed dissatisfaction over
the unit pricing ordinance passed
by City Council Thursday night,
claiming the measure does not ac-
tually benefit the consumer.
"If the ordinance goes into ef-
fect, smallerstores may have to
raise their prices," claims Shirley,
Jones who operates the local Food
Mart stores.
Jones said any price increase
would be due to "additional equip-
E ment and labor" needed to comply
with the ordinance,

Sabotage in the certified compu-
ter program for this month's all-
campus election has been charged,
in addition to the identification of
303 of the ballots as fraudulent.
The Daily learned yesterday that
four lines had been deleted from
the computer program since it was
stored in the computer March 14.
Paul Howard, who wrote the pro-
gram, maintains that "they (who-
ever tampered with the prograrr)
couldn't have picked four other
lines that would've fouled up the
program as. much."

The deleted line, the same line in
four different places on the ballot,
was absent from a computer pro-
gram read-out issued March 29.
The deletion of these four state-
ments means the program can not
be executed.
"It was someone who had access
to the computer, and someone who
knew enough about computers to
do it."
