Write-on vs. the 'U'
The University is still digging for evidence in its investigation
of Write-on, a local merchant of term papers and research. Legal
action is expected to be the next step, according to Write-on
representative James McCarthy, who says he would welcome
it as a chance to find out how the University acquired a pur-
chase order from his company's files. Paul Fisher, a law stu-
dent assisting in the University's investigation, admitted he had
a purchase order, but how he got it was "very privileged infor-
mation." So was everything else apparently, at least to Uni-
versity Attorney Roderick Deane, who politely but firmly
declined comment.
Chemistry committee comment.. .
The chemistry department committee reviewing the con-
troversial Mark Green affair has issued a progress report,
including a statement that the review of Green's teaching
"performance" will be "limited to the conduct of Chemistry
227 in the Fall Term of 1972," and assuring anxious Green
supporters that the review will not deal with "questions of
promotion and tenure." The committee, though promising to
proceed "rapidly," does not foresee completing its work before
next week.
. .. and a student committee
As an outgrowth of last Friday's mass meeting in support
of Prof. Green, a committee of students last night examined
the week's events and found both good and bad. The Steering
Committee of the "Ad Hoc Group Supporting Mark Green &
Student Parity," or so they say, applauded Green's reinstate-
ment to his teaching duties, but raised questions about the re-
view committee, the University "complicity in war research,"
and procedures that may potentially "usurp the right of students
and faculty to define for themselves the nature of their studies."
Students in Chemistry 227, Green's course, can testify before
the review committee tomorrow and Friday.
Another oops
For those who scurried to Detroit yesterday to see George
McGovern before he spoke to that city's Economic Club, we're
sorry. The candidate is speaking at an Economic Club luncheon
today-we were 24 hours off.
Hope for Halpert?
Even the generally conservative Detroit News has recognized
the Human Rights Party. The News' private poll on the stte's
U.S. Senate race gives HRP's Barbara Halpert one per cent of
the vote in November. Halpert, as the top of HRP's ticket, needs
15,000 votes in this election or HRP loses its status on the ballot
as a minoity party. According to state election officials, voters
in the state total 4.8 million, so some quick math will tell you
that HRP will be in the political safety zone again if the News'
poll is correct. Nancy Burghardt, HRP's local coordinator, is
"happy, but I don't know where they got all of those people.
We figure we need at least 10,000 in Ann Arbor to pull us
Revelant religion
The First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor obviously doesn't
feel constrained by that old time religion. Its roadside sign
reads: Those who wish to travel with him-Jesus says-Give
up your Linus blankets.
Pulling a snow job
Just as we predicted, it snowed yesterday, even if you
didn't see it. One reader called to report a full five flakes seen
en route from Detroit to Ann Arbor. Other sources tell of an-
other five flakes-these were sighted between Lansing and Ann
Arbor. Our town itself-zero. Nice to know we can be right,
sort of.

The weather picture
It's going to be another cold one today. The National
Weather Service says it will be sunny this morning and
partly cloudy this afternoon. The highs will only reach the
mid-40s. The temperature will drop to the mid-20s during
the night. The winds will be variable at eight to 12 mph
with little chance of snow. Think summer.

Nixon vetoes bill to
WASHINGTON AP - President Nixon last night vetoed
a $24.6-billion bill aimed at ridding America's waters of all
pollution by 1985.
Nixon said any spending bill this year which would lead
to higher prices and taxes "defies signature by this presi-
dent." He said, "I have nailed my colors to the mast on this
issue; the political winds can blow where they may."
He had asked for a water-pollution bill that would
have committed $6 billion in federal funds over a three-year
period and he called the bill which came to his desk "a stag-
gering, budget-wrecking $24 billion."
r' He said every dollar this bill asked above his proposal
"would exact a price from the consumer in the form of in-
-flated living costs or from

pot ruling
City Attorney Jerald Lax yes-
terday went before District Judge
Sandorf Elden to ask him forda
rehearing of his ruling that de-
clared Ann Arbor's $5.00 mari-
juana penalty to be unconstitu-
On September 29, Elden had
thrown out the low fine, claiming
that it limited the discretionary
sentencing powers of his court.
The City Attorney yesterday
asked for the rehearing on two
principal grounds.
First, Lax contended the pro-
cedure followed by Judge Elden
in his original ruling "did not
give weight to the parties involv-
ed." The City Attorney argued
that the decision was made with-
out a hearing with counter-argu-
Lax also argued against the
judge's interpretation of state law
regarding the powers of a munici-
pality to set limits on sentences.

grant the rehearing, and may have
already ordered one, but that
fact could notbe establishedtat

the taxpayer in the form of a
new federal tax bite or both."
The Smate early this morning
voted to override the veto. The
House is expected to vote on over-
riding the veto this afternoon.
Nixon said he was prepared for
the possibility that his veto would
be overridden by Congress, say-
ing, "The defeat of my proposal
for a spending ceiling showed that
many senators and congressmen
are simply AWOL in our fight
against higher taxes."
He said if his veto is not sus-
tained, the issue will be clearly
drawn. "As with the spending
ceiling, so with this bill, a vote to
sustain the veto is a vote against
a tax increase. A vote to override
the veto is a vote to increase the
likelihood of higher taxes."
Nixon said the bill provides a
measure of spending discretion
and flexibility which the Presi-
dent can exercise. "And if forced
to administer this legislation, I
mean to use those provisions to put
the brakes on budget - wrecking
expenditures as much as possible."
Ie said that if his veto is sus-
tained, it would be no means ter-
minate existing federal water-
quality programs.
He maintained that the Environ-
mental Protection Agency will
continue to operate those pro-
grams "until the merits of a new
bill can be dealt with as a first
order of business in the Congress."

The Senate last night refused to
give President Nixon broad au-
thority to keep spending within a
$250-billion ceiling during this fis-
cal year.
The vote to turn down the com-
promise hammered out by a Sen-
ate House conference was 39 to
27. The House had passed it, 166
to 137 vote.
Earlier, the House and Senate
cleared a compromise Social Se-
curity bill increasing benefits by
$6 billion.
The Social Security bill easily
passed the House by a 305 to 1
vote and the Senate by a 61 to 0
margin, marking a lig step to-

The Social Security bill would
raise payroll taxes to pay for the
liberalized benefits. The maximum
tax on a worker, matched bynhis
employer, would be $631.80 next
year, compared with $468 this
year. But part of the increase
would occur even under present
law, which would set the maxi-
mum for 1973 at $594.
While the bill was hailed by
most members as improving the
programs it covers, others chided
Congress - especially the Sen-
ate - for failing once again to in-
clude reform of the welfare sys-
tem in the measure.
The welfare reform section,
which the House passed last year
in essentially the form recom-
mended by President Nixon, was
drastically revised by the Senate.
