On rare occasions, a happening is so big that it merits a
Today item of its own. The visit to campus by world reknowned
author and psychologist B. F. Skinner is such a happening.
Creator of Walden Two and the highly controversial Beyond Free-
dom and Dignity, Skinner will speak as part of the Future Worlds
Lecture Series at 3:00 p.m. in Hill Aud. Those planning to. at-
tend the lecture should arrive early as there is certain to be a
rush for seats.
? Monday was also election day in Ypsilanti and a paltry 22
per cent of the voters showed up at the polls. George Goodman, a
Democrat, was elected the city's first mayor-at-large as he
garnered some 62 per cent of the vote. The four City Council
races were divided evenly between Democrats and Republicans.
In their first bid for the council in Ypsilanti, the Human Rights
Party came within eight votes of victory in the Third Ward.
Monday just wasn't HRP's day.

LONDON - Ex-World Heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali
has been invited to run for the post of professor of poetry ,at
Oxford University. Ali who has turned out such poetic master-
pieces as "I'll be peckin' and a pokin' and pour water on his
smokin'" to describe his fight with Joe Frazier is currently
recovering from a broken jaw he suffered in a fight last Satur-
day. All was nominated by two Oxford fellows who say the
offer is not a joke. One conceivable drawback to the post, how-
ever, could be its limited financial remuneration - only $750 a
BALTIMORE - A member of the Maryland General Assem-
bly was charged yesterday with transporting 10 million dollars
worth of heroin. Bond for the delegate, James Scott, was set
at $30,000 after he was arrested on a street outside the state
Capitol. Police tried to make the arrest in the Capitol itself but
several legislative officials protested charging that such' a move
violated the code of ethics. He was allowed to walk out the door
where he was picked up by an unmarked car. Such are the
privileges accorded a white-collar criminal in this country.
LONDON - The hopes of Beatle fans the world over were
dealt a cruel blow yesterday by none other than the band's
ex-drummer and movie star Ringo Starr. Ringo told reporters
at Heathrow Airport that the chances of the group coming back
together again are "absolutely remote." Speculation about a pos-
sible reunion increased Monday when it was learned that Beatle
business manager Allen Klein had lost his control of the group's

The use of a behavior-controlling drug by
Washtenaw County courts to stem the consump-
tion of alcohol in "problem abusers" has involved
15th District Court Judge Sandorf Elden in a
class action civil suit which may threaten the
court's alcohol abuse program.
Questions court's drug treatment
The program, praised by some as the most
effective known means of reducing alcohol-re-
lated traffic fatalities and condemned by others
as a violation of individual freedoms, makes ex-
tensive use of a drug called Antabuse.
The drug, which is ingested orally, is intended
to control compulsive drinking. It is supposed
to remain inert in the body for a long period of
time. However, when consumed with even small
quantities of alcohol, the drug causes violent
physical reactions such as vomitting, hyperventil-
ation and vertigo, among others.
Participation of alcohol offenders in the Anta-
buse program is voluntary, but refusal to partici-
pate results in a jail sentence. James Wortley,
probation officers for 15th District Court, said,
"If an alcohol offender refuses to participate in
the program, we turn to the alternative-namely
jail sentence and fine."
The current controversy threatening the pro-
gram stems from a complaint filed March 22 by
Wayne State University Law Prof. Morten Cohen
on behalf of his client Edward Tomalak.
Tomalak, arrested for driving under the in-
fluende of alcohol last July, was sentenced by
Elden to eight months on Antabuse in addition
to $100 fine and $125 court costs. This was Toma-
lak's first arrest for an alcohol-related offense.
After beginning treatment'on Antabuse, Tama-
lak complained of exttreme drowsiness and falling
asleep during waking hours, although he was
consuming no alcohol. He was urged by Wortley
to continue taking Antabuse, as discontinuing
the drug would constitute a probation violation.
Program participants are required to sign a
sworn contract pledging them to maintain their
intake of Antabuse at specified levels.
Shortly after, Tomalak stopped taking his
Antabuse and no longer reported to his probation
officer or porgram workers. Tomalak, like others
on Antabuse, is required to consume Antabuse

The 'Democratic -tHuman Rights
Party controlled City Council met
in a final marathon session last
night to deal with such controver-
sial Issues as the Eisenhower Paik-
way extension and the relocation
of Lansky's junkyard. As of 1 a.m.
this morning neither matter had
been voted on.
Outgoing Mayor Robert Harris
took advantage of the occasion to
deliver some parting remarks on
the state of the city government.
In an attack on amateurism and
decentralization in government,
Harris told the council "the neigh-
borhood has too much of' an upper
hand and is increasing its power
towards s u b v e r t i n g city-wide
He also said the government has
failed to deal with long range
planning in a' serious fashion.
He blamed this situation on the
inexperience of council members
and called for an extension of
council terms to four years from
the present two years.

Increased recreational facilities
for the University next year are al-
most a certainty, but location and
cost of the facilities is a matter of
controversy over funding.
Four years of planning and dis-
cussion reached the final stages
today when the Executive Officers
of the University submitted their
proposal for the new facilities to
the Advisory Committee on Re-
creation, Intramural and Club
Sports (ACRICS) for their sugges-
tions andsapproval before a final
proposal is sent on to the Board
The Executives' four-part plan
called for the conversion of Yost
Field House to a year-round icel
rink, the remodeling of the pres-
ent ice rinkato house intramural
struction of a Ferry field building
to house indoor track and tennis
and the construction of two new
The first three parts of the plan,
to be funded by money provided
from intercollegiate sports, met no
resistance and will probably be
implemented by fall, if approved
by the Regents.
The fourth part of the plan how-
ever, ran into immediate resist-
ance from students on ACRICS.

Secretary of Defense Elliot Richardson said yesterday
the United States would have to consider "reintroduction of
U.S. air support" if Hanoi launched another massive invasion
of South Vietnam.
But he said such an invasion is unlikely and that he be-
lieves South Vietnamese forces could defend themselves
against anything short of that without U. S. help.
Richardson also said he could not answer the question
of whether American bombing in Cambodia could become
a long-term commitment.
"It has to be looked at on a day to day basis," he replied.
Our objective is to bring about full compliance with the

survival of South Vietnam, rein-

John Gilster, a resident in Vera Baits Hall, has filed suit against
the University and the Housing Office in Washtenaw County Circuit
Court in a dispute over a dormitory lease cancellation.
Gilster signed leases for next year for both his present room and
another room in 'a different house in Baits. He had hoped to cancel
the first lease, but the Housing Office has informed him that they
will honor only the first he signed.
Confusion over the cancellation of leases has arisen due to a
change in policy by the Housing Office. In past years, dorm leases
were binding from the time they were signed. Breaking them in-
volved forfeiting the housing deposit.
This year housing deposits have been eliminated due to the new
