On their toes
There's one thing that can be said for the police department
-they're on the job and +he fire department's job, too. When a
fire started in a trash can in City Hall late Friday night, police
managed to extinguish the blaze before fire fighters arrived on
the scene in full gear. The blaze, which caused extensive dam-
age to the fifth floor, started when a smoldering cigaret caught
fire in a huge garbage can.

Mock Inaugural held
LANSING--About 100 anti-war and anti-Nixon student demon-
strators staged a mock inauguration at noon Friday for "King
Richard of Milhouse" on the steps of the state capitol. The
students, mostly from Michigan State University, crowned
"President Nixon" with a football helmet and presented him
with a plastic airplane they designated a B52 bomber. The
demonstration ended with a symbolic execution of half a dozen
war protesters. Earlier in the day someone dribbled two bottles
of ketchup on the front ,steps on the capitol and stuck an anti-
war note on the front door.
Divorce, American style
DETROIT-It took Daniel Borg about three hours in court
to get a divorce. That was about 30 minutes more than his
marriage lasted. Borg said he had courted his fiancee for more
than a year before they were married in September. When the
couple got to their honeymoon cottage, Borg testified, he told
her she could forget about another man with whom she had
been friendly. To his surprise, the new Ms. Borg indicated
she did not intend to forget the other, saying she had agreed
to marry Borg just to make the other man jealous. Wayne
County Circuit Judge Victor Baum said the breakup was the
quickest he heard of in his 16 years on the bench.
Role reversal
SEATTLE-A tavern owner has put a bare-chested male
dancer on stage in an effort to prove that a law against topless
female dancers is a form of sex discrimination. Tavern owner
Frank Colacurico staged his male dancer Friday after Superior
Court Judge James Dore refused to issue an injunction to stop
police from enforcing the no-topless ordinance. "They let males -
do it. Why can't females?" Colarcurico asked. Topless dancing
had thrived here since April when a judge ruled that it was
a form of expression protected by the First Amendment. But
last month, the police chief announced that, because a Dec. 5
Supreme Court decision upheld the right of states to regulate
entertainment in establishments serving liquor, his officers would
again enforce the 1966 no-topless ordinance.
'Obscene' tango?
BOLOGNA, Italy--Marlon Brando, French actress Maria
Schneider and Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci were indicted
yesterday on obscenity charges for their film "The Last Tango
in Paris." Although Italian film critics labeled it as being one
of the best productions since the end of World War II, the
film was banned in Italy last month by a Rome judge after
being shown in the capital for almost a week. Justice sources
said particular objections were raised to a scene which de-
picted "unnatural intercourse." The film concerns a love affair
between a middle-aged, down-at-heel American living in Paris
and a young French girl.

ond inauguration of President
Richard Nixon went off as
scheduled yesterday despite
the loud protests of some 50,-
000 demonstrators.
The anti-Nixon demonstration,
sponsored by the National Peace
Action Coalition (NPAC) and the
People's Coalition for Peace and
Justice (PCPJ), was the biggest
Washington has seen for several
But the massive rally was as
peaceful as its organizers had pre-
dicted, as only 18 protesters were
1 arrested.
A separate demonstration, by
some 2500 members of Students
for a Democratic Society (SDS)
and the Youth International Party
proved a bit more active. SDS and
Yippies skirmished briefly with
police on several different occa-
sions, but no arrests were made.
The only real threat of a serious
flareup in the demonstrations oc-
curred late in the afternoon, when
several hundred protesters at-
tempted to join the end of the
inaugural parade just before it
passed the White House reviewing
Police quickly contained the de-
monstrators, who had blocked a
major intersection. Most of the 18
arrests were made at this point.
The official inaugural ceremony
witnessed by 300,000 onlookers
went off with split second preci-
sion - such exactness in fact, that
much attention was diverted to the
more dramatic actions of the anti-
Nixon protesters.
The NPAC - PCPJ noon march
went from the Lincoln Memorial'
to the Washington Monument.
According to organizers of the
Ann Arbor Counter - Inaugural
Committee about 2500 Ann Arbor-

The procession was called a
"March Against Death." Demon-
strators carried coffins and signs
depicting "atrocities" committed
by Nixon during his first four
years as President.
Some tension momentarily flar-
ed as the demonstrators argued
whether or not to burn fences,
flags and whatever fuel was avail-
able at the base of the Monu-
ment. Only several campfire-like
blazes were set, however.
While at the Monument, the
demonstrators heard speeches by
major war critics. The speeches
were led off by Rep. Bella Abzug
At 11:00 a.m., Vietnam Veter-
ans Against the War began a sep-
arate march from Arlington Na-
tional Cemetery to the District

SAIGON-Gen. Alexander Haig
Jr. wrapped up his peace consulta-
tions here yesterday and flew to
South Korea on his way home.
Ie will brief President Nixon
today on what the U. S. Asian al-
lies think of the proposed Vietnam
peace agreement.
Haig, Nixon's special peace en-
voy, held a 30-minute meetingwith
President Nguyen Van Thieu -
his thirddwith the South Vietna-
mese leader in a week - before
emplaning for Seoul. The brevity
of the meeting was interpreted as
a sign that most major disagree-
ments on the peace terms have
been dissipated.
A spokesman at the U. S. Em-
bassy said Haig spent the night in
Seoul, and will confer with Presi-
dent Chung Hee Park today, then
fly on to Washington to report to

South Korea apparently was add-
ed to his itinerary because of the
35,000 Korean soldiers still sta-
tioned in South Vietnam. These
troops would withdraw along with
the 24,000 remaining Americans
under terms of the peace agree-

ment believed drawing near.
Meanwhile, in the Indochina war,
fierce and bloody fighting was re-
ported in two far-flung regions of
South Vietnam as Saigon's troops
battled with North Vietnamese to
occupy the best positidns in an-
ticipation of an early .cease-fire.
The South Vietnamese command
claimed 421 North Vietnamese
soldiers have been killed since
heavy fighting erupted Thursday
near the former demilitarized zone
and in the Saigon River corridor,
far to the south.
During the same period ending at'
noon yesterday, the command said
the South Vietnamese have lost
57 killed and 157 wounded in the
two battle areas.

The U. S. Command reported
that American fighter - bombers
logged 353 strikes during the 24-
hour period ending at 8 a.m. yes-j
terday. Many attacked in support
of the South Vietnamese ground
B52s, the command said, flew 30
missions during the same report-
ing period. Each B52 mission gen-
erally comprises three planes,
making a total of about 90aone-
plane strikes.
The fighting in Quang Tri re-
volved around a North Vietnamese
attempt to gain control of a strip
of land 13 miles south of the old
demarcation line between the two

Although the Ann Arbor Tran-
sit Authority (AATA) has come up
with a plan for a new transit
system, there remains a serious
question as to whether the city
will be able to fund it.
The system - dubbed Comtran
- would combine a dial-a-ride ser-
vice with an express bus network,
giving patrons door-to-door trans-
portation, according to Arthur Sim-
sar, an AATA consultant.
The problem is that Comtran re-
quires an initial investment of two
million dollars for the purchase of
68 new buses and garage facilities.
The city has applied for a $2.4
million federal grant to defray
these costs. But it must provide
one third of the funds, or $800,000
itself. Simsar says he is not sure
how the money will be raised, al-
though he believes "the city could
issue a bond."
The initial investment, however,
is not the only possibleroadbloc
facing the new plan. For the city
must also maintain an estimated
annual operating budget for the
system approaching two million

gasoline tax will provide enough'
funds to cover Comtran's operating
"We must have the millage in-
crease to go ahead with the transit
system," Simsar says. He adds
that he is very optimistic about the
amendment's chance for approval
at the polls.
"The proposal provides a g o o d
public transit system," says May-
or Robert Harris. Harris says he

sary for the city to institute Con-
