Hlush hush Regents meet
The Regents met yesterday with little fanfare to discuss the
acquisiton of property for the Flint campus of the University.
Unlike most of their meetings, yesterday's affair was marked
by no advance publicity, and the meeting was held behind closed
doors. At the conclusion of the meeting the Regents viewed two
movies: one was about the peaceful uses of remote sensing, the
other about the Michigan football team.
The 'U' paper shredder
The University has joined the modern bureaucratic age. In
a little alcove on the fifth floor of the Administration Bldg. stands
a grey paper shredder-a device popular in the Pentagon-
which rips documents into tiny, undecipherable pieces of paper.
Nobody was quite sure just who used the device. Walter Stevens,
University security officer, has an office on the floor, but said
he didn't even know the thing existed. Secretary of the University
Richard Kennedy saidl the same thing, and added that it was
available to anyone who wished to use it. A janitor said the
thing had been there for three years.
GM boosts HRP
If General Motors has never heard of the Human Rights
Party, they have now. Recently, the Ann Arbor chapter of the
party receved a one dollar check from a GM engineer in Flint.
A note on the back of the check explained that GM has a
"Citizen Action Program" which encourages employes to give
to a political party. The donation is deducted from their pay-
checks. "They assume it will go to the Republican Dick," the
note added. Apparently, not everyone's getting the message.

Ms. Shriver snubbed
BALTIMORE-Displaying some unorthodox political muscle,
Eunice Shriver engaged in a brief tug-of-war with a Maryland
politician for control of the stage microphone at a pro-Nixon
Democratic gathering yesterday. State Central committeeman
John Jakubik "grabbed the microphone out of my hand," Shriver
said, after she barely uttered "Good afternoon" to the Democrats-

SAN DIEGO-Taking a lead from the comic book superhero
Aquaman-who can in times of peril call upon underworld
animals to come to his rescue-the Navy reports that sea lions
will soon be taught to clean mines from harbor floors like those
in Vietnamese ports. The deep-diving mammals, under the
instruction of six Navy frogmen, have been practicing with
dummy anti-submarine rockets fired like torpedoes.
LONDON-British schoolmasters may find that the reason so
many schoolchildren are scratching their heads is not because
they're stupid. The Education Ministry's chief medical officer
warned yesterday that nearly a quarter of a million of Britian's
long-haired schoolchildren have been besieged by lice. The officer
said that the ministry was launching a "vigorous campaign . . .
to deal with the problem of head infestation. With long hair now
popular among both sexes and the habit of boys and girls walking
along with arms entwined around each other's neck, spread of
infestation is to be expected," he warned.

Suspended with pay
pending dept. hearing
By PAUL TRAVIS
Associate Managing Editor
Mark Green, a 35-year-old assistant chemistry professor,
yesterday was relieved of his.teaching duties for showing an
anti-war slide show to his Chemistry 227 class last week.
In a move which could precipitate a major dispute over
the academic freedom of faculty members, Thomas Dunn,
acting chemistry department chairman, suspended Green,
with salary, "pending a review in the near future."
Students in the class are presently conducting a petition
drive to have Green reinstated.
Although Dunn could not be reached for direct comment
last night, he reportedly felt the slide show was "irrelevant"
to the subject matter of

Vice President for Academic
Affairs Allan Smith.
Green maintained, however, that
the show was relevant because "it
demonstrated the misuse that is
possible of the technology taught
at the University."
In notifying Green of the sus-
pension, Dunn cited Green's "ac-
tions beginning October 5."
On that date, Green permitted
the Interfaith Council for Peace to
show a 30-minute anti-war slide
show to his organic chemistry
The slide show, according to
Green, "showed the manner in
which the current air war is con-
ducted. It also showed ads where
advertised with pride how they
had turned their technological
strengths to serve the military
needs of .our country in Vietnam."
He said he wanted his students
to know that "the material we
teach, in part, is used by those
corporations totproduce the weap-
ons shown on the slides."
About 10 other University pro-
fessors have already shown the
slide show to their classes, said
slide show sponsers.
After the first showing of the
slide show, Green placed a note

ment personnel, publicizing the
