Bullard blasted
According to 'U' football mentor Bo Schembechler the 'Vic-
tors' may not be victorious for lng if State Rep. Perry Bullard
continues his dope-smoking exhibitions. Speaking at a luncheon
recently, Bo told his audience that Bullai'd's participation in the
Hash Bash could mean the difference betweep getting or losing
a top-notch high school star. Parents reading about such events,
Bo warned, might decide their offspring are better off else-
where. Thus if the Michigan football team falls apart in a few
years, we'll all know who to blame.

Bormann buried
FRANKFURT, Germany-The ever-elusive corpse of ex-Nazi
leader Martin Bormann may have been buried once and for
all yesterday. Horst Gauf, attorney general of the city of Frank-
furt, called a news conference to announce that a recently un-
earthed skeleton was indeed the infamous Bormann. Officials
were able to verify the finding by the use of certain medical
data including .dental records and skull measurements. Chief
Nazi hunter Simon Wisenthal attended the news conference and
commented that he was 99 per cent sure the claim was accurate.
Ever since the end of the war, people have reported seeing Bor-
mann in various parts of the world. Another Michigan morning
newspaper recently claimed that Bormann was, in fact, alive
and well in South America.

set afire
About 150 curious students
looked on yesterday afternoon
as white-coated members of
Advocates for Medical Infor-
mation (AMI) set fire to "dan-
gerously sexist" literature on
the Diag.
The protest, which included sev-
eral speeches and a guerilla thea-
ter production in addition to the
book-burning, focused its attack
on Obstetrics and Gynecology, a
standard medical text co-authored
by Dr. J. Robert Willson of the
University Medical School.
AMI organizer KaybWeiss de-
clared that Willson's book, which
is used in several med school
classes, contains "health-damaging
and criminally sexist material used
to teach the psychological oppres-
sion of women."
Onlookers reacted with a mixture
of cheers and hisses as Weiss and
others set fire to a trash can con-
taining Willson's book, Dr. David
Reuben's "Any Woman Can," sev-
eral other paperbacks on female
and homosexual psychology, a
number of Blue Cross and hospital
admission cards, and two decks of
"Mr. Eve" playing cards that fea-
ture photos of nude males.
AMI spokespeople contended that
all the objects in the blazing trash-
can were "tools of sexual oppres-
In the speeches preceding the
book-burning, "Herself" editor Bel-
ita Cowan and others attacked the

fession in general for "criminal"

sexuals in literature and actual
Weiss called on the women's
movement to "take on new activi-
ties to work in the direction of
social change," but did not in-
dicate whether she sees book-
burning as such an activity.

Front joined AMI in a guerilla

Haigto confer with
Nixon on possibilty
WASHINGTON (A - Gen. Alexander Haig is expected
to ask President Nixon to consider the viability of a South
Vietnamese attack on Communist-held areas of Cambodia
when he returns from Indochina today.
Administration sources say such use of South Vietnamese units is
not necessarily what Haig, Army chief of staff, will recommend. But
they say it is certainly a live possibility if President Nixon decides
some strong, dramatic action is necessary.
In Saigon, Cambodia's president, Lon Nol, was reported by South
Vietnamese sources to have asked Haig for the help of South Vietna-
mese troops and warplanes in defending the capital of Phnom Penh.
Haig, the former chief deputy to national security adviser Henry
Kissinger, has been on a fact-finding trip to Indochina to assess the
status of the cease-fire and the situation in Cambodia.
The White House yesterday said no time has been set for a Haig-
Nixon meeting, but officials said it would be soon. However, the White
House said the session would not necessarily be during a National
Security Council meeting set for this morning at the presidential
mountain retreat at Camp David, Md.
There have been reports that President Nixon is considering some
strong action to back up his previous warnings that he will not tolerate
continued North Vietnamese violations of the Vietnam cease-fire and
understandings reached with Hanoi concerning Cambodia.
When asked if South Vietnamese troops are already operating
in Cambodia, presidential press secretary Ronald Ziegler said yes-
terday he could not speak for the actions of another government.
Other administration sources said this was not a denial that
Saigon would agree to using either ground or air forces against the
Communists in the neighboring Indochinese state.
Other possible options for Nixon in Cambodia range from continu-
ing the present level of B52 bombing attacks in Cambodia to extend-
ing the air raids to cover North Vietnamese supply lines such as the
Ho Chi Minh trail through Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam.
At this state, sources say there is little chance of the resumption
of American attacks on North Vietnam itself and the President is pre-
cluded from sending American ground troops into Cambodia.

Phillips also claimed that the
President's assessment of' the
needs of the country requires
him to exercise his responsibility
despite the congressional man-
date to continue the program.
Disagreeing, the judge said
that "if the power sought here
were found valid, no barrier
would remain to the executive
ignoring any and all congres-
sional authorizations."
"The argument by Phillips is
that the Constitution confers dis-
cretionary power on the Presi-
dent to refuse to execute laws
passed by Congress with which
he disagrees," Jones added. He
said the Supreme Court has
found that this "would be cloth-
ing the President with a power

administration of justice."
Until Congress decides to ter-
minate the CAA function of OEO,
the ruling said, "historical pre-
cedents, logic and the text of the
Constitution itself obligate the
defendant to continue to operate
the CAA programs as was in-
tended by the Congress and not
terminate them."

Ping pong room
now silent after
Fifty-three years of ping pong at the Michigan
Union have ended.
The table tennis room, adjacent to the second
floor billiard room, is undergoing conversion into
an office area for student organizations.
Renovation of the ping pong room, the second
floor ballroom, a terrace, and part of the second
floor kitchen began last week to clear the way for
5,000 square feet of office space.
Some of the ping pong tables were sold-off for
$5 apiece. Admist crumbled piles of wood, masonry
and scaffolding, a few dusty ping pong tables are
left. Ceiling-high panels of fiber glass close off the
construction from the pool room.
The current state of affairs results from an agree-
ment between SGC and the Union's Board of Direc-
tors. According to former SGC treasurer Dave
Schaper, Union Manager Stanfield Wells violated
a verbal agreement made June, 1972, to move the
ping pong tables into the pool room.
SGC responded to this alleged breech of agree-
ment by purchasing two of the five bargain tables.
"We intend to put them somewhere," Schaper com-
mented. He sees hope for ping pong activity some-
where in the building since "the Union has had
tremendously inefficient space usage."
Attendants in the pool room declared that mov-
ing ping pong tables into the room would hurt
business by forcing them to remove some of the
money-making pool tables.
The office move by student organizations from
their office in the Student Activities Building to
a new one in the Michigan Union (the reason for
the displacement of the ping pong room) goes back
to the revised 1968 Michigan Union Constitution.
Ironically, the constitution's intent was to foster a
more student-oriented Union.
At the June, 1972, board meeting, Schaper sub-
mitted the plan which is currently being enacted.
He asserted that the ping pong room was "under-
utilized, except on weekends. The Board, under
pressure from the University which was short on
office space, approved this plan.
Pool room attendants claim that patrons, 90 per
cent of them students, have complained about their
lost pastime. "They've had this service for over
53 years, and they have no other place to play,"
one said.

Student Government Council moved yesterday toward a
full investigation of the activities of personnel involved in
last month's fradulent all-campus election.
Election Director Ken Newbury has requested SGC mem-
bers, candidates, officials, and all "unofficial" council per-
sonnel to submit statements giving "a detailed description
of events, people, dates, times and places" itemizing each
person's involvement in the election process.
In an unprecedented move last
week, SGC ruled the March 27-28-
29 voting invalid and cleared the
way for a new election during fall
pre-registration later this month.
Newbury yesterday described the
tempt to determine the extent and c~ lh~

mine who was responsible."
