RAP says what?
In the final days of the SGC campaign, the conservative
Respofisible Alternative Party has been circulating a leaflet
proclaiming its support for the candidacy of George McGovern.
It all comes as somewhat of a surprise considering that one
RAP SGC candidate works 'actively for the ultra-conservative
Libertarian Party while other prominent party members sup-
port the American Independent Party's nominee. Leading cam-
pus conservative and RAP mogul Bill Thee claims the leaflet
represents the opinion of the majority of the party's candidates.
The Ann Arbor Bank is giving away money. No kidding,
crisp new greenbacks. The idea behind the scheme is to demon-
strate the new cash dispensing machine at their Liberty St.
branch. Today obviously decided to investigate, so one of our
intrepid legmen legged it over to Liberty to help himself to
some free cash. The, man in line in front pushed the button and
out popped a dollar bill. Now for the bad news. When it came
to our man's turn, the machine simply flashed the sign: "Please
do not use. Machine temporarily out of order." Them's the
Arson at Huron
The band played on as the school burned down yesterday
when an arsonist's tricks forced the evacuation of Ann Arbor's
Huron High School. Alice Cooper would have giggled, and
most of the students seemed amused as a half dozen fire trucks
careened to the ultra-modern 1,500 student school building on the
Northeast side shortly after noon to extinguish a blaze in the
auditorium. Police said they suspected arson. The school's march-
ing band played on at a nearby athletic field as firemen fought I
the blaze. No estimate of damage was available.
Well, we really blew it. We're sorry and we'll try not to do
it again. We are refering to two recent Today items describing
the cancellation by "person unknown" of an HRP campaign
ad in The Daily.
In fact nobody tried to cancel any HRP ad. What happened
was that a woman from the University Democratic Caucus
came in to cancel an anti-HRP ad. The Daily business staff
misunderstood, and thought she was illictly puling an ad for

By The Associated Press and Reuters
While hope for a quick settlement in Indochina faded
yesterday, the battle pace quickened on several fronts.
North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao troops launched a
general offensive in Northern Laos to cut links between
Vientiane and the royal capital of Luang Prabang.
North Vietnamese troops supported by tanks concen-
trated near Muong Suoi (about 100 miles northwest of Vien-
tiane), were ready to launch an offensive in the direction
of Slap Houkhoun in order to cut liaison between Vientiane
and Laung Prabang according to a Laotian army spokes-

Government Council (SGC) Presi-

to answer charges that he had vio-

The hearing was called in re-

Responsible Alternative P a r t y

charging Jacobs with tearing
down RAP campaign posters.
During the hearing, Jacobs de-

that "It makes no sense to rip
down-two or three RAP posters."
He added, "Every window in the

'U' bus drivers stoned
Some idiot has been getting his rocks off lately by throwing
stones at University commuter buses. At least three rock-throw-
ing incidents have been reported to police and University secur-
ity so far, and in each case the rocks appear to have been
aimed at the drivers. So far nobody has been hurt seriously,
though one driver was slightly cut by flying glass. The rock-
throwing is occurring near the Northwood Five apartments
on North Campus, and has taken place late at night.

Pound dead at 87
Ezra Pound, praised for his esoteric verse and condemned
for his "fascist leanings," died yesterday ,in a Venice Hospital.
He was 87. Pound, who had broadcast, propaganda for Musso-
lini during the second World War, was one of the world's most
enigmatic and influential writers. T. S. Eliot once described
him as the "greatest craftsman." Most known for his "Cantos,"
an 800-page series of poems covering the thoughts of man from
the age of Confuscious to the modern day, Pound was also re-
nowned for his translations from Chinese and his influence on
writers such as Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce and Robert
