Detroit cop saga
Daily Chief Photographer Terry McCarthy, allegedly beaten
up two weeks ago by Detroit police at a violent celebration of the
Detroit Tiger's victory in the Eastern Division pennant race, has
been told by investigating officers that nothing can be done about
his case. The reason: McCarthy did not get the badge numbers of
the offending officers (McCarthy says he isn't sure they were
wearing badges) and there were no witnesses to the event. Board
for Student Publications Chairman Larry Berlin is not yet pre-
pared to let the matter drop, however. Berlin said yesterday he
will bill Detroit Police Commissioner John Nichols both for
medical expenses suffered by McCarthy, as well as the cost of
a roll of McCarthy's film allegedly stolen by the officers.
Call 764-B ULL?
The Human Rights Party says it is somewhat concerned at
reports that Democratic State Representative contender Perry
Bullard is spreading false, nay, malicious rumors, about HR'er
Steve Burghardt, a candidate for the same office. HRP's solu-
tion? They asked the telephone company to set up a special rum-
or control line, phone number 764-BULL. Unfortunately, the
person who had the number refused to relinquish it, so now
HRP is having to make do with its regular phone number: 761-
Campus police note
We can all breathe a little easier now that the new Univer-
sity unit of the city police is on the job. On Sunday, two stalwart
officers from the unit confronted a small gathering of freaks on
the Diag. They ordered the group to pour out the contents of the
Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill bottle from which they were drink-
ing - ostentatiously flaunting state liquor laws barring public
consumption. No arrests were made, and the group got off with
a firm reprimand.
Goof dept.
When The Daily incorrectly reported Sunday that LSA
student government candidate Bill Cohen was a grad student, we
got 10 (count 'em) calls informing us that Bill was really a
freshman. The Daily apologizes for its error but wonders -
if all those people go out and vote for him, how can he lose?
The Daily also got it wrong when it reported SGC candidate
Debbie Allen as a member of the class of '76. She is, in fact,
a member of the class of '74.
CATV report
Those of you who paid their money to Michigan Cable Tele-
vision and still haven't got your cable shouldn't be holding your
breath, despite confident predictions from cable company offic-
ials. The reason why there has yet to be any real action is a
simple one: they can't make their system work. Apparently, the
studio is now set up and the complicated transmitting equipment
poised for action. The only problem is they cannot make the
signal go down the lines.

Reject anti-student move
The Senate Assembly yesterday rejected a blatantly anti-
student resolution aiming at cutting the number of student repre-
sentatives on its Academic Affairs Committee from five to
two. The reason for the proposal, according to its sponsor, was
the erratic behavior of student members. The behavior cited was
talking and passing notes during meetings, disrupting meetings
and talking to The Daily about what went on.
Stocks plunge, again
NEW YORK - Stock market prices dropped sharply yester-

day for their fourth straight session in a selloff analysts said was
prompted in part by the Justice Department suit against Inter-
national Business Machines. The Dow Jones average of 30 in-
dustrial stocks fell 8.80 points to 921.66, bringing the loss over
the past four sessions to some 30 points. Declines led advances
on the New York Stock Exchange by about two to one. Big
Board volume was a dull 10.95 million shares.
Another recall
DETROIT - Chrysler Corp. said yesterday it is recalling

U.S. 'to request
court break-up
of IBM Corp.*
NEW YORK (N-The government announced yesterday,
its long-range goal in an anti-trust suit against International
Business Machines Corp. (IBM)-the break-up of the vast
multi-billion dollar firm into separate, competing units.
In the latest move of the three-and-a-half year old
government lawsuit against IBM, the Justice Department
sent a memorandum to federal judge David Edelstein describ-
ing the suit's goals.
If the government wins the suit, the memo said, it would
seek to "dissipate the enormous marketpower of the current
IBM computer manufacturing
and marketing structure."


Computer operations were the
dxep. Bmain source of IBM's $8.3 billion'
in revenues last year. IBM at
present is the world's largest com-
puter manufacturer and the na-
P tion's fifth largest corporation-
with 266,000 employes in 117 coun-
I tries.
To replace the present IBM
structure, the government said it
would seek "formation of the total

Post story
'reports on
Sen. George McGovern ac-
cused President Nixon's cam-
paigners yesterday of mQunt-
ing "some of the shabbiest Un-
dercover operations in the
history of American politics."
McGovern, speaking to union
members in Los Angeles, quoted
a Washington Post story accusing

Mr. Nixon's elbow every day" of,

The Post reported that a Los

Segretti has been identified by
federal investigators as one of 50
"undercover operatives engaged
since 1971 in an apparently un-

Democratic presidential candi-
The Post quoted another Cali-
fornian, Lawrence Young, as say-

Chapin was a person I reported to

Segretti was hired by Chapin and

House aide, to "subvert and dis-

"I will not dignify with comment
stories based on hearsay, char-
acter assassination, innuendo,

Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler
said. "I will not dignify such
stories with a comment. That is
the White House position. That is
my position."~
Ziegler refused to comment on
the content of stories in Time
Magazine and the Post that Se-
gretti, was one of those hired for
the alleged disruption activities
and a Post story that Segretti said
he made reports to Chapin.
Ziegler said Nixon has confi-
dence in Chapin, who has termed
the Post story hearsay and funda-
mentally inaccurate.
Clark MacGregor, Nixon cam-
paign director, described the break-
in and alleged bugging of Demo-
cratic headquarters in the Water-
gate building as the work of "some
obvious volunteers who were al-
legedly spying . .."
Benjamin Bradlee, the P o s t ' s

MacGregor's charges by saying:
