Dope exchange
In yesterday's Daily we ran an item about the Police Chief of
Casper, Wyoming, who apparently has a deputy on his force
whocan detect marijuana by an allergic swelling in his neck.
Bruce Wampler, a University student who hails from the fair
city of Casper saw the item and brought in a clipping 'of his
own. The clip, torn from the pages of the Casper Star-Tribune,
shows a picture of some Ann Arbor dope smokers toking away
during last Sunday's Hash Festival. This dope-note exchange
leads us to believe that, unlike Richard Nixon, dope can truly
bring us together.
Smokey hospitalized
Smokey, The Daily's news hound and ad hoc mascot, was
reported in satisfactory condition yesterday after being run over
by a motorist near his Southside home. The beagle-etc. who
suffered a broken leg apparently failed to look both ways before
crossing the street, and was hit in the rear by the car. He was
rushed to hospital where surgery was undertaken. Cards and
letters can be sent to 'Get Well Soon Smokey,' 420 Maynard, Ann
Arbor 48104.
A book burning
Book burning, one of the favorite hobbies of Hitler's brown-
shirts and the topic of the terrifying Ray Bradbury novel Faren-
heit 451, will make a comeback here next week. Advocates for
Medical Information, a local group, is sponsoring the immolation
of elected works that they find "sexist". The affair will be at
noon, April 11, unless it rains, when it will be rescheduled for the
first clear day thereafter. The Today column considers this action
to be boorish and disgusting.
Harvey saga
The great political trial of the month which was scheduled
to begin yesterday was postponed until May 17. The defendant
is of course none other than former Washtenaw County Sheriff
Douglas Harvey. Harvey is being tried on a drunk and disor-
derly charge which was alleged to have taken place after his
car plunged into a ditch off I-7S last month. Defense attorneys
cited Harvey's poor health-as the reason for the delay.
Conference scheduled
A Women's Community Symposium will be held tomorrow in
Angell Hall, and promises to be a most interesting event. Spon-
sored by the Students for Educationa Innovation, the LSA Stu-
dent Government, Dean Wilbuir Cohen of the School of Educa-
tion and SGC's Minority Affairs Committee, the day-long con-
ference will feature presentations by women's groups represent-
ing all phases of community life - from the Rainbow Sisters to
the National Welfare Rights Organization. The conference begins
at 10 a.m. in Angell Hall. Day care facilities will be provided at
the Newman Center. This conference represents the first such
co-operative effort in the city.
Faculty fights
The U-M Association for Collective Bargaining says that 49
faculty members whose salaries depend on federal funds should
not be laid off if President Nixon budget plans are approved by
Congress. The ACB says that these faculty members should
be absorbed into the regular faculty, if they meet tenure require-
ments. The group's position may conflict with a Regents' bylaw
which states that faculty positions funded from limited term
funds terminate when the funds end. All of the positions affected
by the budget cuts are in the U-H School of Public Health and
the U-M School of Social Work. There is some effort being made
in Congress to restore public health funds.
Happenings ..
...are light on this Saturday. Those interested in partying
should head for Kade House, Oxford Housing on Geddes Road
around 9:00 p.m. There will be free beer, free soul music and
free dancing . . UAC is accepting applications for next year's
soph show central committee. All interested freshmen should
contact the UAC office before Wednesday . . . and for baseball
enthusiasts tomorrow will provide an opportunity to view the
national pasttime on the tube. The Tigers will be on TV2 and
the always popular Game of the Week will be shown on Channel
4. Check your TV listings for the times of the games.
Veral inflation
TORONTO-Police here reported that burglars yesterday
got away with $850 worth of ham and processed meats from a
downtown delicatessen. Detectives searching for the stolen goods
asked neighbors if they had seen anyone in the area with a
truck. One cynical resident responded, "With the price of meat
today, it would probably fit into a car trunk without moving the
spare tire."
Myth shattered
BOSTON - Like Santa Calus and little elves bowling in the
sky, the story of Paul Revere's famous ride may not be all it's
cracked up to be. According to historian Richard O'Donnell, a
great deal of the Revere legend' is simply fictitious. There was he
claims no "one if by land, two if by sea," from the old North
Church. Revere rode not to Concord but to Lexingston to warn
Sam Adams and John Hancock (who was out with a girl friend)
that the British were coming to arrest them. Is nothing sacred?
Stones news
WARWICK, R. I.,- Defense attorneys here tried unsuccess-
fully yesterday to get criminal charges dropped against the Roll-

ing Stones. The charges stem from are alleged airport scuffle be-
tween police and the band during the group's recent American
tour. The five are charged with assault and obstructing a police
officer. A trial will be arranged at the nearest convenient date.
Walter attacked
NEW YORK - Walter Croakite was for some strange rea-
son hissed and pelted with rolls of electrician's tape Thursday
night when he reported on, his regular evening news program
that Congress had returned from a three-day recess. Nestor
James, a network technician was the culprit and he was prompt-
ly dismissed. That's the way it is, Friday, April 6.

With the target 'date of Sep-
tember, 1973 fast approaching,
University officials concede that
they will not reach their com-
mitment of 10 per ient black en-
rollment on time.
Citing inadequate supportive
services-including finacial aid-
and a declining applicant pool,
they estimate that black students
will make up 8.5-9 per cent of the
total University population next
The 10 per cent was "assured"

by the Board of Regents in the
spring of 1970 after the Black
Action Movement (BAM) strike
had effectively shut down the
University for more than a week.
At the time of the strike, blacks
comprised approximately 4.8 per
cent of the student enrollment.
The institution created to meet
the demands of the new recruit-
ment efforts was the Opportunity
Program. Speaking about the

program this week, newly ap-
pointed director George Goodman
blames the failure in part on the
unprojected rise in the attrition
rate of black students.
Goodman attributes the rising
drop-out rate to the University's
lack of strong supportive services
including academic counseling,
financial aid and housing assist-
"The students go from one of-

fice to another for help," he
comments. 'If they get bounced
more than once or twice *they
give up."
Anthropology Prof. Gloria Mar-
shall agrees that the University's
services are seriously , lacking.
Noting that her contact is pri-
marily with graduate students,
she claims, that fellowship sup-
port is "far too low to keep peo-
ple living under hard financial

con ditions."
Equally important, Marshall
says, is the disappointment many
black students face with the Uni-
versity environment.
"Black have been lured to the
University believing that a vig-.
orous effort. is being made to
neet their needs, only to find
that nothing has changed aca-
demically, neither faculty make-
up nor course orientation."

Will fail to fulfill primary BAM strike demand

Marshall feels that a number
of important black faculty mem-
bers have left in the past three
Also somewhat critical of the
program is Prof. Harold Cruse,
director of the Afro-American
Center. "I don't think a whole
hearted effort was put into re-
cruitment to even approach the
10 per cent goal," he comments.
In defense of the program,
Goodman cites the decline of the
applicant pool as the University

The national meat boycott
has had moderate effects lo-
cally, according to most city
grocery stores.
Large chain supermarkets re-

pecially at the beginning of this
week, but many claimed buying

day, bringing sales close to normal
Meat sales at campus food stores
patronized mainly by students
dropped drastically, but' most of'
these stores handle low volumes of
meat, chiefly in packaged form.

cotted meat all week. Both houses
reported the action had been suc-
cessful, although a Michigan House
resident remarked, "There was
some grousing about the food."
Steward Jody Bisdee said morale
at Vail has been high and estimat-
ed-the house has saved up to $100
in food costs. "We've had some of
the best meals we've had all year
just because of the effort," one
Vail resident commented.

Sa es remain lowbit
prices Will not drop
By the Associated Press, UPI and Reuter,
The nationwide consumer meat boycott appeared to be
holding yesterday, on what is traditionally the heaviest
grocery shopping day of the week.
But although sales of beef and pork were off substan-
tially in many cities, most prices remained the same during
the first six days of the boycott.
An Associated Press sample survey of prices of eight meat
items on Monday and again on Thursday showed only scat-
tered changes; several de--

to clear the way for a supply convoy to race upriver from the South
Vietnamese border to the isolated Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh,
besieged by a Communist blockade.
The ships and barges, loaded with ammunition, petroleum and
