Is this for real?
In yet another piece of bizarre research aimed at correlat-
ing physical data with apparent intelligence, a .University study
released yesterday shows that the hair of students with high
academic grades contains "substantially" more zinc and copper
than the hair of students with low grades. It is as yet unclear
whether high intelligence breeds zinc, or zinc breeds high in-
telligence. What's your guess?
Super-Sewer swamped
At a public hearing yesterday on 'the proposed "Super Sew-
er", critics had a field day. The Super Sewer would provide
southeastern Michigan cities with a communal sewage' pipeline
leading to a treatment plant at Lake Erie. The hearing, spon-
sored by the Environmental Protection Agency and held at
Metro Airport, included testimony which claimed the proposed
sewer would not serve its ostensible purpose - alleviating Huron
,River pollution - but would in fact increase the pollution level of
Lake Erie.

Dope notes
Police Chief Robert Zipay of Casper, Wyo., says one of his
officers has an unusual allergy to marijuana that makes his neck
itch and swell. Zipay would not identify the super sensitive cop,
but said Wednesday the officer has made more marijuana ar-
rests than any other policeman. Zipay is giving his man tests to
see if he is allergic to other illegal drugs, boasting, "We will cr-
tainly use him to the best of his allergy." . . . And the Food and
Drug Administration yesterday recommended tighter controls
on methaqualone-better known as Quaalude. The FDA recom-
mended production quotas, as well as limits on distribution.
No ladies allowed
LONDON-British professor Dr. John Postgate yesterday
proposed the urgent development of what he sees as the solution
to the- population problem: A "men only" birth control pill
which would prevent the birth of female babies. Postgate claimed
widespread use of such an invention could provide a male female
ratio of between five and 50 to one. He suggests that in such a
society homosexuality would be widespread, that women might
as a matter of course take several husbands, and he forsees the
treatment of women in some spcieties as queen bees. He refused
to discuss the social and political implications of his proposal
with the press.
Floods continue
NEW ORLEANS-Officials yesterday estimated property
damage from the flooding Mississippi River at nearly $75 million,
as about seven million acres of land remained under water from
Illinois to Louisiana. It is now estimated that the worst of the
flooding may well be over, at least in most areas, but the river
is not expected to crest in New Orleans until April 13.

WOUNDED KNEE -.Leaders of the American
Indian Movement (AIM) and government officials
yesterday signed a six-point agreement to end the
37-day takeover of Wounded Knee.
The agreement came after six days of negotia-
tions between AIM and Justice. Department
The last two days have been spent ironing out
details of minor legal terminology in the final point
of a 10 point list of Indian demands, according to
chief government negotiator Asst. U. S. Atty. Gen.
Kent Frizell.
According to the agreement:
-Russell Means, leader of the occupying In-
dians, will go to Washington tomorrow to meet


arra nge

with White House representatives.
.-Once that meeting starts, the Indians will
leave Wounded Knee, submit to arrest and be taken
to Rapid City for arraignment.
-There will be a federal investigation of In-
dian affairs throughout the Pine Ridge reserva-
tion and an audit of tribal funds.
-The Department of Justice is to consider and
where appropriate bring civil suits to protect the
legal rights of all individual Oglala Sioux Indians
against unlawful uses or abuses by tribal govern-
ment or federal authority.
-A presidential treaty commission will be set up
to reexamine the 1868 government treaty with the
Sioux Nation.
-Indian leaders and White House representa-

tives will meet next month in Washington to con-
sider Indian affairs.
Interior Department spokesman Julian Reinhart
said Means was taken into custody by federal
marshals soon after the agreement was signed.
Rheinhart would not divulge where Means was
taken, but it was believed he would begin his trip
to Washington for tomorrow's meeting.
The agreement serves as the basis for the In-
dians laying down their arms and the evacuation of
all bunkers and roadblocks in and around Wounded
Knee. It provides that the disarming will be im-
plemented by government law enforcement offic-
ers with the cooperation of the AIM leadership.
The government agreed not to interfere with the
amount of bond or terms for the Indians' release

by the courts. The government said there were no
provisions for amnesty.
"All persons, for whom warrants are outstand-
ing will be arrested," said Frizell.
At least 15 armored personnel carriers have
been patrolling the perimeter of the village and
standing by at government roadblocks on all routes
in and out of Wounded Knee.
There have been frequent exchanges of gunfire
throughout thesiege. OneFederal marshal is in a
Denver hospital with serious gunshot wounds and
there have been other minor injuries.
All food supplies into Wounded Knee were cut off
and law enforcement officers prevented anyone
from entering or leaving Wounded Knee.

He said he acted at Gray's
In a statement, Nixon said: "In
fairness to Mr. Gray, and out of
my overriding concern for the ef-
fective conduct of the vitally im-
portant business of the FBI, I
have regretfully agreed to with-
draw Mr. Gray's nomination."
Nixon, who did not say who he
would name to succeed Gray as
head of the FBI, did declare that
he has asked Gray to remain as
acting director until a nominee is
The President said, after talking
to Gray by telephone for five min-
utes, "it is obvious that Mr. Gray's
nomination will not be confirmed
by the Senate."
To bolster this contention, Nixon
cited, without elaborating, action
yesterday by the Senate Judiciary
Committee which had been handl-
ing the matter.
The committee earlier yesterday
agreed to a showdown vote next
week on the nomination after
Democrats moved to postpone ac-,
tion indefinitely.
In his statement, Nixon describedt
Gray as "an able, honest and1

during pre-registrat(ion

In an explosive session last
night, the Student Government
Council voted to hold a new all-
campus election during fall pre-
registration later this month, in
place of last week's invalidated
SGC balloting.
The voiding of that election,
which voting officials described
as "defrauded on a massive
scale," and last night's decision
to hold a second contest are both

unprecedented in SGC history.
Council, which has steadily lost
campus credibility through the
last t h r e.e controversy-plagued
elections, voted 7-2 in favor of
temporary provisions placing se-
curity guards at poll locations
during the n e w 1 y scheduled

newly approved plan
by outgoing Council
Bill Jacobs, students
going through pre-

registration lines at Waterman
Gym April 21-25, casting ballots
in the presence of "at least one
professional b o n d e d security
guard at all times."
The I.D. card voting sticker
system, which proved trouble-
some and less than foolproof dur-
ing last week's election, willtbe
replaced by a simpler method
allowing only students with new-
ly-embossed I.D. cards to ovte.
The 'plan also calls for one
additional daylof balloting after
pre-registration for medical, law,
and dental students, who do not
pre-register at Waterman.
Students in other schools who
fail to pre-register will also be
able to vote on the extra day,

lottery numbers

with balloting "safeguarded" by
an I.D. receipt system to pre-
vent multiple voting.
The decision in favor of a new
election was preceded by a
lengthy and sometimes raucous
debate on a motion to tabulate
last week's results and attempt
to reach a valid outcome.
The motion failed 7-2, with SGC
member Bill Dobbs objecting
vehemently and d e m a n d i n g
"t o t a 1 investigation" of last
week's voting.
"There's a thousand questions
still to be asked," Dobbs insisted.
"It's obvious that the same peo-
ple monkeyed around with this
election that monkeyed around
with the last two,"
In a related. move, Council
member Louis Lessem outlined
a proposal which would move all
future SGC elections to pre-reg-
istration lines and utilize the
city's rent-free voting machines.
Under Lessem's plan, which
has so far received considerable
Council support, security guards
would become a permanent fea-
ture of SGC elections.

'HRP holds. meetin
to discuss elections
Despite the fact that a number of political pundits, particularly
Democratic ones, are ready to write them off, Human Rights Party
members consider their organization very much alive.
That was the consensus of the party's meetings last night which
was attended by some 100 people.
Those who attended heard numerous speakers discuss reasons
for the party's poor performance at the polls and plans for the future.
A great many reasons were offered for Monday's electoral results
in which the party failed to win a single race.
The most popular ones were: The Daily, too much primary fac-
tionalism, student apathy and shortness of campaign time.
Steve Burghardt, who ran unsuccessfully for State representative
last November, described the Daily's political analyses as "the most'
sophomoric I've read since William Buckley."
