Richard Kleindienst that "there is
evidence" that the test tampering.

Because of unanthorized main-

original antipollution test results
were withdrawn and the company
was reauired to repeat its full
50.000-mile testing on 1973-model
auto eneines.

pany to shin its new cars to deal-

Ruckelshaus praised Ford top
executives for reporting the prob-

"However." he added, "this

Gregory:. Comedian and critic

"Can you people in the cheap seats hear okay?"
Dick Gregory, the comedian, began jokingly
last night at the Power Center. But suddenly he
was the comedian no longer. "You don't have
any more tricks left in dealing with minorities,"
Dick Gregory, now the social critic told the
whites in the audience. "Now you have to deal
with us directly."
The near-capacity, predominantly black audi-
ence raucously laughed and applauded Gregory's
jokes about Clifford Irving, airplane hijackings,
and Thomas Eagleton. But when Gregory turned
to comments about "this sick, degenerate sys-
tem," they were struck silent, managing only a
smattering of applause and a few cries of "Right

get my thing together and I don't care how upset
you get."
The young white in this country is "the new
nigger," he contended. "If any of you have any
doubts, just look at Kent State. But I expect a
slimy degenerate mentality like that of this coun-
try not to be able to see right from wrong."
Toward the end of his speech Gregory offered
some ways for constructive change. He urged
people to register to vote but to register inde-
pendent because "you don't have the fight to
select, just elect." He also added that Ann Arbor
is lucky to have an independent party.
Youth has the ultimate answer, said Gregory.
"Love. You have to love and respect yourself.
You are your brother's keeper the world over.
