GOP against sewer
The Washtenaw County Republican Committee has unani-
mously voted "total and unequivocal opposition" to the proposed
"Super Sewer." The Republicans vehemently railed at the plan
- which calls for all sewage from Washtenaw, Wayne and
Oakland Counties to be treated at one huge plant on Lake
Erie. They called- the proposed plan ill-conceived, and claimed
it would have detrimental effects to the Huron River. With such
across-the-board oposition to the sewer, we wonder who-besides
Gov. William Milliken and Environmental Protection Agency
head William Ruckelshaus, the plan's originators - still has
hopes for the Super Sewer.

Dope note
SEATTLE - The second grader who brought two plants in
a milk carton for "show and tell" should have asked first
before bringing them to school. Police officer Larry Shafer and
Principal Anna Averholt of Alki School agreed the plants
were marijuana.
Hold the onions
DETROIT - Detroit's two most famed hot dog dealers.
American Coney Island Restaurant and Lafayette Coney Island,
have stopped shovelling onions on their spicy product. The
price of onions, they say, is too high. In the last six months, on-
ions have skyrocketed from $5.50 to $28 for 50 pounds. It's enough
to make an onion lover cry.
Spy vs. spy
WASHINGTON -'In a battle t gain full control of U.S. spy
operations, Maj. Gen. Daniel Graham of theDefense Intelligence
Agency (DIA) released a statement saying, "there is no longer
a need, in my judgment, to duplicate DIA's efforts in other
agencies," a seemingly clear reference to the Central Intelli-
gence Agency. A highly-placed source in the CIA responded by
saying, "If anybody thinks they are going to take over major
jobs from CIA, theyre way off the beam," a seemingly clear
reference to a lack of intelligence in the DIA.
Republicans attack Nixon
WASHINGTON - President Nixon, current figurehead of the
Republican Party, is having a little trouble with dissension in
the ranks, as virtually every Senate Republican wants Nixon
to disclose all available facts behind the Watergate affair - at
least according to a survey of GOP Senators. From Arizona's
Barry Goldwater and Virginia's William Scott on the right to
New York's Jacob Javits on the left, many Republican Senators
of all ideological stripes want Nixon to let White House aides
testify at the Watergate hearings. In addition, about two-thirds
of the 43 Republican Senators feel that the incident will gravely
damage the GOP in the '74 and '76 elections. What ever hap-
pened to party loyalty?
Marigolds forever'
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.. - The widow of Sen. Everett Dirksen
(R-Ill.), is traveling the country promoting her late husband's
favorite cause - trying to make the marigold the national
flower. Sen. Dirksen had once said the flower had "rugged'

humility of character and, like the American eagle and the
American flag, is an exclusively American emblem."
Gay teacher's case continues
BALTIMORE - Dr: Stanton Friedman and Rev. William
Stayton took the stand yesterday in U.S. District Court in defense
of Joseph Acanfora, who lost his eighth grade teaching position
for being an avowed homosexual. Dr. Friedman, head of pedia-
trics at the University of Rochester, and Rev. Stayton, instruc-
tor of family planning at the University of Pennsylvania, feel
that a homosexual would not influence teenagers and would
actually help students find :heir own sexual identity. A decision
will probably be reached within ten days.
Cow chips to fly
BEAVER, Okla. - if you're out in this area next Saturday,
don't forget to stop in and see Oklahoma Gov. David Hall
throw out the first cow chip to start the Annual World Champion-
ship Cow Chip Throwing Contest. (A cowchip is what is left
behind after the cow moves on.) It looks like real tough
competition this year. So many people have wanted to compete,
that regional throw-offs throughout the country were set up.

throngs greet
former POW
Ann Arbor showed its colors yesterday:
red, white and blue. Flags waved, the
mayor said words like' 'patriotism' and
'courage' and everyone stood for the na-
tional anthem - all because ex-POW Air
Force Capt. Jack Butcher was home.
Capt. Butcher arrived at the University
baseball stadium in a Chevy Caprice with
a member of the local American Legion
post serving as' chauffeur. Original plans
had called for him to land on the baseball
diamond in a helicopter but none could
be found.
A fleet of local dignitaries was on hand
to welcome, the returning ex-POW: Presi-

a squadron of engineering school deans,
the Unive'rsity marching band, an emissary
from the governor, a letter from Rep. Mar-

their blessings.
The homecoming became dramatic as
Capt. Butcher fumbled with the corsage he
was to pin on his wife; finally, blushing
and defeated, he handed it to his sister.
Looking a bit ragged because they had
been assembled on short notice, the march-
ing band nevertheless launched into a

WASHINGTON 01i - The editor of the Republican National Coin-

The implication behind the missive is that the 'only good Com-

colleges cut

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Officials of some of the largest U.S. col-
leges and universities said yesterday they expect annual revenue losses
of up to $25 million next year if the Nixon administration's proposed
budget cutbacks go, into effect.
"Virtually every on-going higher education program has either
been eliminated or reduced substantially in the 1974 budget re-
quests," the 128-member National Association of State Universities
I and Land Grant Colleges stated in a report.
It said the hardest hit programs would be in the field health
'sciences and student aid grants.
The estimated losses of federal aid under President Nixon's
budget proposals for the fiscal year begining July 1 include an $8
