Blacks hide books
Angry East Quad blacks have checked out and hidden every
book in the dorm library-a protest against quad librarian Jim
Murphy. The blacks' complaint is that Murphy has failed to re-
place a $600 collection of records on black themes stolen over
the Summer. Their next move: the presentation of a list of de-
mands to the Representative Assembly of the Residential Col-
lege. The demands include the establishment of a separate
McGovern- favoirtc here
Sen. George McGovern may be trailing in the national
polls, but he is still a clear favorite with students at the Uni-
versity. According to a poll released yesterday by the McGovern/
Shriver people, McGovern leads Nixon by a whopping 38 per cent
-54 to 16 per cent. But "undecideds" and "others" make up a
large 30 per cent of the students - three times the national av-
erage. The poll was conducted by Student Government Council.
Day of reckoning
It's a big day for Sheriff Douglas Harvey. County prosecu-
tor William Delhey says he will announce the result of his in-
vestigation into LIarvey's rather questionable methods of dis-
posing of recovered stolen property. Word of Harvey's fate - he
could be charged with misuse of his power - will come at a 2
p.m. press conference in Delhey's office.
In other sheriff's election news comes the report that Ameri-
can Independent Sheriff Harvey is "hurt" at his Republican
opponent Undersheriff Harold Owings' assertion that, if elected,
Owings will not give Harvey a job. Harvey said yesterday that
he certainly will allow Owings to keep his job if he is elected. The
third contender, Democrat Fred Postill, is not thought likely to
keep either of them.

Alternative Party(RAP) honchosBrad Taylor, BillThee and Bill
Krebaum think they do. At least, they thought they did early
yesterday morning when the three of them, armed with a
camera, camped outside the monolithic apartment building con-
vinced that a top-level conspiracy against them was underway.
Well, as it turned out, GROUP leader and SGC President Bill
Jacobs, GROUP elections maestro John Koza and Credentials
and Rules Committee member Dave Schaper were within the tall
walls, but it isn't quite clear they were conspiring. Schaper ex-
plains that they had gotten together to write an article for The
Michigan Student News.
Bullard and HRP
In our little item about Perry Bullard this week - the one
that mentioned the Human Rights Party's effort to set up a
Bullard rumor control line - we neglected to mention the
"rumor" that so infuriated HRP. As we have been accused of
slandering Bullard without evidence, we print here the rumor
in question: According to an HRP member Bullard told an East
Quad resident that he (Bullard) had helped to draft the local
$5 pot ordinance. HRP says this is "obviously not true." Bul-
lard explains: "What I said was that I helped draft the Michigan
Marijuana Initiative petition."J
HRP and Bullard
When we were researching the above item we were informed
in strong, terms by Bullard and his law partner, Don Koster,
that HRP member Frank Shoichet was conducting a "smear
campaign" against Bullard. As evidence they pointed to an
anonymous leaflet circulated around campus before the primary
which attacked Bullard and concluded that Bullard was really
"Bullshit." "A vote for Bullshit is a vote for Bullshit," the leaf-
let proclaimed Shoichet yesterday admitted he was responsible
for the leaflet, and defended it as "all true."

couldn't be mustered for one.
More than two-thirds of the 533-

billion highway bill, which also
would have authorized $3.4 billion

In other congressional action, a
bill taking the first federal steps
to muffle major sources of noise
was sent to President Nixon after
backers finally overcame the ob-

The Senate approved the bill by

lation cleared the House.
Rep. Durward Hall (R-Mo.) after
twice refusing to let the House give
unanimous approval to an emer-

his objections when sponsors cut

BULLETIN/FLASH/URGENT. At 7:32 p.m. last night
the writer of this column was struck a not-so-violent blow
on the cheek by a snow flake at the rear of the building
at 420 Maynard St. The flake escaped but was observed to
melt on the ground seconds later. THIS SHOULD BE CON-
SIDERED A WARNING. More of this insidious stuff is
reportedly on the way. Beware. Wear your long winter
woolens and keep your head covered. That is all.

the two clashing sides last night
of an informal debate on the best

Much of the debate centered on
George McGovern's candidacy.

other McGovern worker, stressed

presidential election to the crowd
of about 70 in Aud. B.
"McGovern represents a prom-
ise of change, through maybe
not as much as we'd like, in the
right direction," said Crockett.
"He must be elected so some-
thing canbe done.He would end
the war, diminish spending, push
for tax reform.'
While both the HRP and the
McGovern workers agreed that
American society is "sick" and
must be changed, they dis-
agreed on the methods of accom-
plishing that change.
The two participating HRP
workers emphasizedathe neces-
sity for a radical third party and
urged support for HRP.
Though they did not reject
McGovern, they said energy
shoild be directed towards the
b,>ilding of radical parties.
Crocketttobjected, saying, "It
will take ten, 20, 30 years to get
a third party strong enough. We

so real, so urgent that I don't
