Men better than women
Men are better cleaners than women, or at least that is
what the Barfield Cleaning Company thinks. In a bulletin
board announcement in the temporary employment office at
the SAB, Barfield offers $2.25 an hour for cleaningwomen
and $2.95 an hour for cleaningmen. But despite the blatant
sexual discrimination, the University did not think to ban
the notice. "The men have much heavier work to do than
the women do," explained Susan Craw, a spokesperson for
the temporary empolyment office.
Happenings .. .
if football isn't your thing, there are a variety of other
goings-on in and around town today, and perhaps the most
bizzare is a genuine Old English Sheepdog contest, scheduled
for 11 a.m. at the Farm Council grounds in Saline. Expected
are over 50 of the slobbery beasts and their owners. Follow the
signs on Ann Arbor-Saline Road, which is the continuation of
South Main Street past Stadium. If you have a dog you'd like
to enter, be there at 9 a.m. . . . Go, the oriental equivalent of
chess, is hailed by its afficianados as the real king of board
games. Experts from everywhere will show you how to play, 2
p.m. at the International Center . . . if you're getting hooked on
booze, Alcoholics Anonymous might be for you. 8:30 p.m. at the
YW-YMCA . . . and if football is your thing, watch Michigan
trounce Tulane, 1:30 p.m. in the stadium.
Pigs vs. Goats
"Pigs" from all over the county will descend this Sunday
at 7 p.m. on Pioneer High School's Holloway football field for
a bit of the old ultra-violence. Their target is not the student
body, but the "Goats" of the city police department, and the
event is the fourth annual "Pig Bowl" football game. Admis-
sion price is $2 or a toy of equal value. Proceeds will go
towards giving the county's underprivileged youth Christmas
presents. In the past games, the city police Goats have
triumphed twice, the Pigs once. But this year the Goat
are clearly worried. "We're kind of raggedy because we
haven't had the preparation we had last year," said a
Goat spokesanimal. "But we're goin' to keep 'em honest."
Griffin backs out
LANSING-U.S. Sen. Robert Griffin (R-Mich.) declined yes-
terday to attend a noon Michigan Municipal League lunch where
he and his Democratic opponent, Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley, were
scheduled to speak. The function was planned as one of the rare
meetings between the two, who have had running differences
about whether to meet together in public debate. A Griffin
spokesman in Detroit said the senator had to stay in Washingto'n
.for an expected key vote on a consumer protection bill. Kelley,
meanwhile, charged Griffin with "running away from debating
me" and "taking special pains not to be put in a position where
I can confront him under any circumstances."
Esch enjoined
DETROIT-Wayne County Circuit Judge James Ryan yester-
day issued a permanent injunction forbidding U.S. Rep. Marvin
Esch from representing himself to voters as the incumbent
Livonia congressman. The judge acted on a complaint by Esch's
opponent, State House Majority Leader Marvin Stempien, that
Esch was claiming he had represented Livonia as well as Ann
Arbor in Congress. Livonia only became part of the Second
Congressional District this year after a redrawing of district
boundaries.

Mitchell as spy
WASHINGTON-The Washington Post reported yesterday that
John Mitchell, while attorney general, controlled a Republican
fund reserved for gathering intelligence about Democrats. The
newspaper quoted "several reliable sources" as saying Mitchell
personally approved withdrawals from the fund as early as the
spring of 1971, almost a year before he resigned as Attorney
General to head President Nixon's campaign committee. A
spokesperson for the committee immediately denied the Post's
charges, and Martha Mitchell said she couldn't imagine such

a thing being true.

the rupture "in view of the perfidious actions of the Japanese
government in total disregard of treaty obligations."

By TED STEIN
Supporters of the city's $5 pot penalty voiced bitter dis-
appointment yesterday over District Judge Sandorf Elden's
ruling that the fine is pre-empted by state law.
In fact, not even the Republican council members who
have been most adamantly opposed to the liberal pot ordi.
nance were rejoicing.
While members of the coalition of Democrats and Hu-
man Rights Party (HRP) members who passed the measure
fumed about the decision, council Republicans said that the
ruling either didn't go far enough or still left the legality of

air.
Both parties will undoubtedly
await eagerly the results of the
appeal which City Attorney Jer-
old Lax said yesterday the city
will probably seek.
Council member Jerry'De Grieck
(HRP-First Ward) condemned the
decision for what he called its po-
litical motivation.
Elden is running for circuit
judge in the Nov. 7 election.
"Elden is desperately attempt-
ing to win election to the circuit
court and will apparently stop at
nothing, including ignoring the
well-being of the people of Ann
Arbor, to gain cheap votes and
publicity to further his own cause,"
he said.
De Grieck said that "cities have
often passed laws parallel to
state laws with greater or lesser
maximum penalties." He added
that City Council always passes
ordinances in which "unreasonable
discretion" is removed from the
courts.
John Sinclair, head of -the Rain-
bow People's Party, seconded De
Grieck's feeling of outrage, call-
ing the court decision "a bunch of
hogwash."
"If anyone has a responsibility
for making laws, it's the legisla-
ture," Sinclair said. "Every sen-
tence is dictated by a legislature."
"These reactionaries who think
they still have power are acting
up.

liam Colburn, (R-Third Ward) who

FOOTBALL POLICE

Saturday 's
By CINDY HILL
To most students, the policeman's job at Uni-
versity football games entails nothing more than
a free ticket and ignoring the Boone's Farm and
marijuana smoke.
Not so, according to Lt. Richard Hill of the
Special Services Division, Ann Arbor Police
Dept., who reports that the job falls short of be-
ing overwhelmingly popular.
"I'd like to say that we don't have any prob-

"I don't think there's been a game without
three or four heart attacks, and I don't know
if you've ever tried to run up those stairst but
at my age it's easier running down than up," says
Hill.
The "fighting drunk", an Arbor tradition, poses
another problem for the men.
"They're either getting bombed to celebrate
the victory or getting bombed to drown the loss,"
according to Hill.
