There's oil in dem hills
Yesterday's Regents meeting was hardly a spicy affair.
Much of the discussion'revolved around such dry subjects as land
deals and property evaluations. But sometimes even the Regents
can be humorous, and yesterday was Regent William Cudlip's
(R-Det) turn to crack a joke of sorts. Cudlip asked, with evident
concern, whether the University was retaining the mineral rights
on a 1.15 acre patch of land it was selling in Northern Michi-
gan. There, "might be oil" on the land, Cudlip speculated, and
he didn't want the University to be sold short. University
Financial Officer Wilbur Pierpont replied, with a slight, but
businesslike, smile, that he would look into the matter.
Decisive decision dept.
The Regents yesterday approved the appointment of Thomas
Easthope to the position of Assistant Vice-President for Student
Services. Easthope was formerly Assistant to the Vice President
for Student Services. It only took the Regents two months to
remove five letters from Easthope's title.
Meanwhile, the Eastern Michigan University Regents are
concerned about other things-namely pets. At a meeting earlier
this week, the board passed a rule banning "dogs, cats, or other
animals and reptiles from the campus." Guess the birds will have
r to fly South.
Mr. Daniel Davis, 30, of our town, called to inform us that
he is not the same Daniel Davis, 28, that was arrested at the
American Massage Parlor this week. Daniel Davis the elder
says he has been caused serious embarrassment by the whole
affair and would like us to point out that he is actually a reput-
able businessman. We hereby point this out.
Community High controversy
Ann Arbor Community High School students and faculty
are upset over the removal of William Casello as the school's
coordinator of community resources - the liason between stu-
dents and area people with whom the students work. Instead,
Casello will serve as a science teacher and counselor. Michael
Harrah, local representative for the Ann Arbor Education Assoc-
iation said the faculty is filing a protest over the decision. One
student said yesterday, "If not for Casello, many students
wouldn't be at the school today." Neither Casello nor a Board
of Education spokesman would comment on the matter.
. . .no football game today so you can sit at home and cry,
or else get involved with something more stimulating, such as
a "Beer With Ben" tonight from 8-12 midnight at 1910 Hill St.

your childhood) and he's speaking on behalf of his People's
Party presidential candidacy; it'll cost you a buck and a half

... The Rive Gauche bicycle trip and volleyball game (are
these simultaneous events?) are at 4:30 p.m. at 1024 Hill . . .
there's no doubt that the highlight of the weekend's, attractions is
a Sino-Tibetian Language and Linguistics Conference in the
Union. Plan to attend if you have a Tibetan midterm coming
up. Have a nice weekend and remember, if you're out tonight
and you're on your bike, wear white .. . good morning all.
Pun off the hook
ST. IGNACE - Rainbow Party leader Pun Plamondon yes-
terday had his two-year-old charge of carrying a concealed
weapon dismissed by a district court judge. The judge said the
delay in prosecuting Plamondon had violated his right to a fair
trial. Plamondon said he had expected the ruling.
Boggs search continues
JUNEAU - Air-sea search operations for missing House
Democratic Leader Hale Boggs continued yesterday, but without
finding a trace of the missing congressman and his three com-
panions. The Air Force threw one of its super-secret SR-71 spy
jets into the search for the small plane in which Boggs was
travelling: Our Aviation-Expert-in-Residence says that if anything
can find Boggs, it's the SR-71. "The plane can locate a pack
of cigarettes from 100,000 feet."
Strike news, part 1
CHICAGO - All surface deliveries of REA Express except
medical suplies were stopped yesterday when 1,500 clerks,
freight handlers and drivers struck for higher wages. The walk-
out by members of the AFL-CIO Brotherhood of Railway and
Airline Clerks affected freight shipments by some retail outlets
and threatened to disrupt the movement of canceled checks
among the nation's Federal Reserve banks. The United Parcel
Service, another private agency, and the U.S. Postal Service
picked up some of the slack but their size limitations on parcels
required other shippers to consider alternatives for the move-
ment of larger containers.
Strike news, part 2
The UAW yesterday continued its hit-run strike calls against
General Motors with a strike authorization at an assembly plant
in Lakewood, Ga. So far seven strikes have been called or
planned, but none of them have been in GM's home territory

LANSING (A4-The State Su-
preme Court yesterday voted
unanimously to take on a re-
view of lower court rulings
striking down the state's abor-
tion law. The move temporar-
ily puts the state's abortion
law back into effect.
The high court's action super-
seded an almost simultaneous de-
cision by the Appeals Court to
suspend Wayne County Circuit
Judge Charles Kaufman's ruling
that the statute is unconstitutional.
Appeals judges had acted on a
request from Wayne County Prose-
cutor William Cahalan to stay
Kaufman's injunction outlawing
prosecutions for illegal abortions.
The state's century-old law gov-
erning abortions permits them only
when the life of the expectant
mother is in danger.
In taking on the abortion dis-
pute, the Supreme Court acted on
its "own motion"-that is, it was
not requested to do so bye any
Now under review are two cases
involved in the Kaufman ruling and
two others from an earlier August
decision by an Appeals Court panel.
Acting Chief Justice Thomas
Brennan defended the body's de-
cision. "In declaring the existing
abortion statute unconstitutional,"
he said, "the lower courtshave
raised serious questions of major
significance at this time.
"We believe that the public in-
terest will best be served by a
decision from the Supreme Court."
In November, the state will vote
on Proposal B, which would allow
abortions to be performed by li-
censed physicians during the first
20 weeks of pregnancy. It is not
yet clear how the court's decision
will affect the result of the voting,
