Vol. LXXXIII, No. 19 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Thursday, September 28, 1972 Ten Cents
County Prosecutor William Delhey said yesterday he h a s
launched an investigation into the methods used by Sheriff
Douglas Harvey in disposing of stolen property. At issue is a
stolen camper, recovered last year by deputies, which is now
allegedly residing outside the home of Harvey's brother-in-law,
and a number of stolen snowmobiles, some of which have ap-
parently not been returned to their owners. Handling the in-
vestigation are the prosecutor's own staff and the Michigan
With the institution of unlimited servings of everything,
dormitory food servcie has run into a major problem-freeload-
ers. Because of them, Housing Director John Feldkamp esti-
mates the food service has to prepare about five per cent more
food. "To produce the quantity you have to lower the quality,"
he says. "This means less steaks and more hamburger." There
are no plans, however, to increase the number of what Feld-
kamp calls "food narcs" to spot illegal eaters.

w Dope note
City Council member John McCormick (R-Fifth Ward), sworn
enemy of the forces of marijuana, has threatened to test the
city's $5 pot law in court, but he's not going to get too involved.
A surrogate will turn himself in to police Chief Walter Krasny
with a small quantity of grass, and demand to be arrested. Mc-
Cormick's only problem so far is - where does he get the grass?

LANSING - More than 1,000 illegal billboards across the
state are starting to sport bright red violation notices - the first
sign of doom under the recently passed billboard control law. If
the owners of the signs don't take them -down, the state will.
Owners'll get the bill, at twice the actual cost of demolition.
Patriotism, Berkeley style
BERKELEY - This city of 120,000 people bordering San
Francisco Bay has officially decided it will no longer fly the
American flag on top of its city hall. The move followed criticism
of flag-flying by radical city councilmember D'Army Bailey.
Calling the practice "super patriotism," Bailey said flying the
flag was ironic because the city council has officially ordered
public buildings to be available as sanctuaries for deserting
U.S. armed forces members.-
Who likes McGovern?
WASHINGTON - Bumper stickers saying, "Will Rogers
Never Met McGovern" - a parody of the late humorist's famous
phrase, "I never met a man I didn't like," - have aroused the
ire of Will Rogers, jr. The humorist's son this week asked the
Committee for the Re-Election of the President to stop using his
dad's name mit's campaign. The committee said it was unaware
that it had, but promised to rook into the matter.
Women of Dartmouth
HANOVER - For 202 years, presidents of Dartmouth have
begun their annual convocation remarks with, "Men of Dart-
mouth . . ." This week the tradition came to an end. President
John Kemeny opened instead with, "Men and women of Dart-
mouth . . ." Thunderous applause followed, much of it from
the school's first contingent of 250 women.

When Michigan Cable TV finally getsI
started, it may be operating illegally.
"If they go into operation without a
certificate of compliance, they would be I
in violation of FCC (Federal Communica- -
tions Commission) rules," FCC staff at-
torney Greg Weiss said yesterday.
A certificate of compliance states that
a station has complied with FCC rules.
According to FCC regulations, a station
must file a formal application stating
that it has complied with the rules.,
Clark Leonard, programming directorI
for Michigan Cable TV, said last week
that the company does not intend to
apply for a certificate. He said that the
city system is exempt from the regula-
tion because it falls under the so-called
FCC "grandfather clause."
The "grandfather clause," according
to FCC regulations, states that any sta-
tion in operation before March 31, 1972
is given a five-year extension on the
compliance certificate. The term "oper.
ation," says the FCC regulations, means
But Leonard believes that Michigan
Cable TV's "significant investment" ful-
fills the operation requirement, citing
their monetary and property investment.
"If they were not in operation by
March 31, then they do not fall under the
grandfather clause and must apply for
the certificate," said Weiss.
Weiss adds that the FCC would prob-
ably not take any action unless some
local group brought the matter before
them. No group has thus far, according
Ray Clevinger, attorney for Michigan
Cable TV, was out of town and unavail-
able for comment.
Once the cablecasting begins, prob-
ably in about two weeks, there will be
other difficulties as well, especially those
surrounding community involvement.
The major controversy over the sys-
tem revolves around who will gain access
to the system's four public service chan-
nels and how those programs will be pid
for and regulated.
But there .are further questions con-
cerning the powers and composition of
the Cablecasting Commission, establish-
ed by City Council to supervise the cable
Various community groups, including
the Media Access Center (MAC) and the
Human Rights Party (HRP), are keenly
interested in the potential offered by-the
four public access channels.
The channels, guaranteed through the
city franchise, will be available for com-
munity use, probably on a first-come,
non-discriminatory basis. Although FCC
regulations require that individual groups
receive five minutes of free air time a
year, most air time will cost up to $32.50
an hour for studio cameramen and en-
This leads to the problem of financing.
Community groups want the cable com-
pany to pay, but the company says it is
currently losing money.
The Media Access Center, a group
which has studied the cable problems
extensively, says this cost would pre-
vent certain community groups from

'Stat e Hous-e
LANSING, (Up - The' Michigan House passed yesterday
a sweeping no-fault auto insurance bill that would cover all
Michigan motorists starting Oct. 1, 1973 unless rejected by
the state's Supreme Court.
The bill, long a behind-scenes controversy in the House,
passed 84-19. Further action still must come in the Senate
where a different version, with slightly lower benefit pro-
visions passed during the summer.
The House version guarantees $60,000 maximum cover-

the Senate called for unlimited medical expenses.

rebates, figuring on a rate of $200 weekly for three years.
