Collins appeals
Defense attorneys yesterday asked the Michigan Court of
Appeals to overturn the conviction of John Norman Collins,
convicted of murdering an Eastern Michigan University co-ed in
July, 1969. Attorneys claimed Collins' case had been decided in
the press before it ever came to trial. The co-ed Collins was
convicted of slaying was one of seven young women killed in the
area over a two-year period.
Fuller Bridge opening
The Fuller St. Bridge will be reopened Oct. 14, only four and
one-half weeks behind schedule. City Administrator Guy Larcom
promised City Council Monday night that the bridge's recon-
struction is at last entering its final stages.
Booze note
ADRIAN - If you really dig screwdrivers, grab a straw
and some orange juice and head for nearby Allens Lake.
It seems several thousand gallons of Vodka were dumped into the
small lake Monday when a semi-truck loaded with bottles of the
brew overturned while rounding a corner on U.S. 12. The driver,
it was reported, was neither hurt nor overcome by the fumes.
Local fish had no comment.

Dope notes
An anonymous caller informed us around 2 a.m. yesterday
that Judge Sandorf Elden - who last week struck down the $5
fine provision of the city's marijuana ordinance - had been "re-
taliated against." A quick check at Elden's Northwest side
mansion revealed cute little red and green marijuana plants
painted on his driveway ... and all over his house, too . . . and
yet another anonymous source reports that more "retaliation"
will be launched, this one a Diag smoke-in on Friday, Oct. 13 ... .
in other dope news, local police agencies were busy Monday
night. A raiding party of city detectives, sheriff's deputies and
other assorted police cruched an alleged dope pad on Traver
Rd. on the outskirts of the city, arrested two people and confis-
cated peyote, hash, grass and cocaine. The bust was initiated
by ansundercover agent.
Exporting pollution
General Motors seems to have found yet another way to
export pollution. The giant car-maker announced Monday that
1,113 autos which do not meet U.S. emission control standards be-
cause they were left unfinished during a strike this summer will
be sold in Canada. Canadian pollution standards will not go info
effect until Nov. 1, and do not affect the GM cars.
GOP/God coalition
As if Richard Nixon weren't enough competition, some sourc-
es now claim that George McGovern must also contend with
the wrath of God. At a rock-and-roll voter registration concert
in Milwaukee featuring Tricia Nixon Cox yesterday, one of
the performers predicted a GOP victory because "God is on
our side." Is there no hope?
Briefly noted . ..
the Justice Department has asked the Supreme Court
to prevent "so-called hippies living in communes" from receiv-
ing federal food stamps . . . the Liberal Party has nominated
Priscilla Ryan for the Congressional seat held by Tier late hus-
band, Rep. William Ryan. The decision came less than 24 hours
after Ryan was defeated by Rep. Bella Abzug for the district's
Democratic nomination . . . a bill to bar unauthorized visits by
Americans to North Vietnam was rejected by the House Monday
amid charges it could let the President block trips by journal-
ists and families of POW's . . . the United States will admit 1,000
Ugandan Asians to this country on a parole basis.

Oops. Goofed again
In last Friday's Daily, a story on the "morning-after pill" car-
ried a headline that read: "Morning-after pill called safe/no
cancer link." The headline was inaccurate as there is evidence in-
dicating there is a connection betweer the diethylstilbestrol
(DES) contained in the pills and cancer. The article also used the
words "cancer scare" in describing recent attacks on this pill
in "herself" magazine. That word choice was unfortunate as ques-
tions do exist over this relationship . . . also, The Daily reported
yesterday that Conservative Party State Representative candi-
date Alan Harris said he had no chance of winning the election.
Harris denies ever having made such a statement.

Zolton F e r e n c y, a founding
member of the statewide Human
Rights Party (HRP), said yes-
terday he acted as an interme-
diary in a $100 contribution to
the campaign fund of attorney
Perry Bullard, Democratic op-
ponent of an HRP member for
State Representative in this
fall's general election.
Ferency is HRP's current can-
didate for the state supreme
He spoke at a press confer-
ence called to deny statements
by Bullard that Ferency had
personally contributed to his
According to Ferency - who
was the Democratic Party's gub-
ernatorial candidate in 1966 be-
fore leaving the party to help






found HRP-the $100 donation
was not actually a campaign con-
tribution but a gift to offset
legal costs incurred by Bullard,
when he brought a lawsuit over
the summer.
The lawsuit-one supported by
several lobbyists in the state
capitol - was intended to force
state senators to stand for re-
election this fall because of the
a 11 e g e d malapportionment of
their districts.
The money, Ferency said,
came from persons* in Lansing
who had supported the suit. None
of the money involved was his
own, Ferency asserted.
He refused to disclose the
identity of any of the donors who
he said asked to remain anony-
Ferency said that the idea of

making out the check to Bul-
lard's campaign had been his
"It wasn't really a campaign
contribution," Ferency explained
"It was just that it came at a
time when Bullard was - a candi-
date. It occured to me that he
might be able to use the money
best in his campaign."
With his check, Ferency had
included a personal handwritten'
note which read:
"Dear Perry: Enclosed, please
find a modest contribution col-
lected from people interested in
your campaign."
The note was signed "Z" and
written on Ferency's personal
Some question has been raised
as to whether Ferency's actions
violated state statutes barring

anonymous contributions.
Ferency denied that his actions
were illegal.
Section 9.17 of the state elec-
tion code states that no person
shall contribute to a campaign,
in any other name than that of
the person who in truth supplied
such money."
Ferency claimed that since the
idea to donate the money to
Bullard's campaign was his own,
he had not broken this section
of the election code.
County Prosecutor William Del-
hey said yesterday that an action
such as Ferency's might "come
close to a violation." He added
that he would have to study
case law more closely before
being certain that a statute had
been broken.
