major bills
Rejects HEW, labor
dept. appropriations
WASHINGTON (P--President Nixon yesterday vetoed nine
major pieces of legislation including a $30.5 billion appropria
tion for the departments of Labor and Health, Education ani
Welfare (HEW).
Nixon justified the action as necessary to "avoid the
necessity of a tax increase next year," but Democratic
presidential aspirant George McGovern called the veto "a
'moral outrage" in a Los Angeles campaign speech.
Nixon used the so-called "pocket veto"-that is, he re-
fused to sign the bills and since Congress wasn't in session,
Sthey died.
The Labor department and HEW will be funded, how-
ever, because Congress passed a stop-gap measure authorizing
spending at last year's levels*
in anticipation of the veto. "
Among items killed by the Presi- i gr
dent were a two-year extension of
the federal vocational rehabilita-
tion program, a five year program
to provide $497 million for medicalask s p ob e

Elden's ads
District Judge Sandorf Elden's form of campaigning for a
circuit court seat has been upheld, and an injunction against
using certain ads in that campaign denied. The ads pictured the
door to Elden's home, decorated with a cluster of marijuana
leaves which were painted there shortly after Elden's decision
voiding the city's $5 pot law was made last month. "Some of
Judge Sandy Elden's most courageous decisions have come
back to his doorstep," said the ad. Local attorney Arthur Car-
penter based his injunction request on Canon 30 of the Judicial
Code of Ethics, which holds that a candidate for higher judicial
office "should refrain from all conduct which might tend to
arouse reasonable suspician that he is using the power or pres-
tige of his judicial position to promote his candidacy." While
Carpenter said the hearing was not concerned with whether
Elden made the pot law decision for his own political reasons,
he claimed that advertising the ruling aroused the "reasonable
suspicion" cited in the Canon. Visiting Circuit Court Judge Har-
old Van Domelen of Oceana City did not agree.
Is he or isn't he?
When computer-electoral whiz John Koza was seeking the
Democratic nomination for regent this summer, he proclaimed
that he would not be a student come election time-in order to
conform with state law barring students from regental posi-
tions. Now, he's running for Rackham Student Government, it is
election time . . . and he is a student. It seems he never got
his dissertation approved because his adviser is overseas . . .
Happenings ...
Homecoming continues with the traditional tug-of-war at
Island Park at 9 a.m. The "men and women" of Taylor House

the Taylor ad has it . . . One hour later, the equally traditional
"Mud Bowl" at the SAE House, corner of South U and Wash-

of coming, try the novice road rally, sponsored by the Washte-

WCC north parking lot, and it's a 40 mile course. At the course's
end, there will be $100 worth of prizes awarded, and a party

Heat's on in Chile
Disorder and police-civilian = confrontations continue in San-
tiago, Chile caused by the general strike against the government
of Socialist President Salvadore Allende, as rumors that the army
will take over his cabinet grow. Negotiations continue unsuccess-
fully between Allende and the strikers, who include shopkeepers,
doctors, schoolteachers, engineers, some farm worker groups,
and some professional groups. Twenty of Chile's 25 provinces
continue under martial law-three persons have been killed for
violating curfews so far, and there have been numerous arrests
and injuries. The strike began Oct. 10 because of disagreements
between the government and truckers' unions, and has grown
since then.
British money woes
The world money situation seemed headed for crisis again,
as the pound sterling yesterday dropped to record lows in a fourth
straight day of decline. British leaders are meeting in emergency
session to discuss the problem, which has already caused a
decline in the French franc and the Japanese yen. If this con-
tinues, the whole system of exchange rates worked out in Wash-
ington last year could be thrown into turmoil. For the moment,
however, the dollar is standing stable.

o Harvey
Leaders of the Washtenaw County
Jail Community Treatment Pro-
gram asked the county :prosecutor
yesterday to investigate the group's
expulsion from the jail by Sheriff
Douglas Harvey.
Last Tuesday, Harvey ordered
the coalition of community agen-
cies to suspend its program of
educational services to inmates.
He said he took the action because
of alleged "dope smuggling" by
program officials.
Harveysaid yesterday that his
charge was based on the fact that
a small quantity of illegal drugs
was found in the cell-block after
program instructors had met with
inmates. However, he said he was
unable to identify anyone involved
in the "smuggling."
"We're not going to prosecute
anybody because we don't have any
evidence as to the specific persons
involved," Harvey said. "All we
know is that the drugs were there
after they left."
Treatment Program co-ordinator
Molly Reno said yesterday that
Harvey's c h a r g e was "totally
"It's absurd for the sheriff to
make these allegations without
substantiating them," she said. "He
has made no formal charges,/nor
has he identified the individuals
involved in the case."
The Community Treatment Pro-
gram consists of representatives
from 11 community agencies. Since
July, it has offered courses to
county jail inmates on topics rang-
ing from drugs and alcoholism to
artistic expression.
Participating organizations in-
clude Catholic Social Services, the
Model Cities Legal Dept., Drug
Help Inc., and the University's
Project Outreach.
Reno said this proposal was com-
pletely unacceptable to the mem-
bers of the program.
Harvey reportedly offered th e
group the option of continuing its
services through the use of video-
taped instruction.

T ne agonizing test, however, came in the
fabulous phone booth stuffing contest. Four
crazed teams willingly sacrificed their
bodies for honor, competition, aad not in-

said that "many basic principles"
still must be worked out before
the agreement can be signed.

SGC ballot:, Secret or not?


Although most students agree that the new
$5,694 all-campus election system-the most ex-
pensive in the University's history-guarantees
against fraud, some have charged that it jeopar-
dizes the secrecy of the ballot.
The new voting system will be put to the test
beginning Tuesday in the campus' 3-day election.
In the new selection process, numbered election

that no one can guess what the information could
be used for "in five years, next year or next term."

Yet another possible obstacle to
peace is South Vietnamese Presi-
dent Nguyen Van Thieu.
Thieu said yesterday, "we do not
agree on anything yet" and "the
only cease-fire that will take place
will comply with our demands."
Thieu is said to be ready to ac-
cept the cease-fire but is reported-
ly unhappy with the tripartite po-
litical provisions of the accord.
