Strike fizzles
Student strikers at Huron High were disappointed yesterday,
when only about 40 people showed up for a protest against the
school district's new discipline policy. Leonard Sklar, a strike
organizer, said that low turnout was caused by student reluctance
to miss classes. Too many absences at the end of the term and
you flunk your courses, or so it seems. The strike was called to
protest a new discipline policy imposed by the Ann Arbor Board
of Education which, students say, does not protect student rights.
Radio ruckus
An argument between the University's student-run WCBN
radio station and Eastern Michigan University (EMU) may be
nearing solution. The problems stem from EMU's request that
WCBN move from 89.5 megahertz to 88.3 MHz so that EMU
could move its station, WEMU, to 89.1 and apply for greater
power and coverage. WCBN demurred, saying the new spot
would have too much interference with WCBN's airwaves. A
test of the 88.3 site got mixed results-WEMU thought it sounded
fine, WCBN disagreed. So now the University is proposing an-
other test, with judges from both institutions joined by an im-
partial observer. The results would be binding on the schools,
and the University has even offered to finance half the test.
Senior power
NEW ORLEANS-A group of elderly militants burned repli-
cas of their Social Security cards Monday as they marched in
protest of President Nixon's vetoes of old-age legislation. About
40 sign-carrying representatives of senior citizens' clubs in New
Orleans picketed the Nixon-Agnew headquarters to protest the
vetoing of the Older Americans Act and the HEW appropriations
bill. The marchers' signs read "Senior Power," "Oldies But
Goodies," and "Can You Afford to Grow Old." Nixon workers
came out to offer them coffee and folding chairs; but unfortun-
ately no social security benefits.
'Dear sir or ms.'
It's "Mr." or "Ms." now on application forms for the
Career Planning and Placement office, following a complaint by
the University's Commission for Women. The Commission said
that the designations of marital status and number of children
were potentially discriminating and had no relevance to the
actual qualifications needed for most positions. In the future,
students applying for positions with companies will check only
Mr. or Nis. and no information on number of children will be
sent to prospective employers.

began going over the figures trying to

Three recurring themes in the re-

(1) the coat tails of George McGovern;
(2) a low level of voter awareness of
the local campaign, and
(3) the failure of the HRP campaign

An immediate handicap for all HRP
candidates in the city was running under
the banner of a party which did not
support George McGovern.
Given the massive pro-McGovern sen-
timent on campus, HRP worked hard to
convince students to split their ticket.

Although some ticket-splitting did occur,
the vast majority of McGovern support-
ers stayed with the Democrats on the
local level.
Further, the excitement and intensity
of a national campaign distracted voter
interest from the local elections.
Many student voters didn't even know
which county commissioner district they
lived in before entering the voting booth,
and awareness of the issues and per-
sonalities in the state representative'
race was little higher.
Traditionally, a low level of interest
in a campaign favors established par-
ties and this seems to have been the case

Never say die
WASHINGTON-Sen. George McGovern's hand-picked head of
the Democratic National Committee said yesterday she will
resist any efforts to oust her as head of the party that suffered
a landslide loss to President Nixon. "Jean Westwood is alive and
well and intends to remain on the job," she told a news conference
at party headquarters. Her announcement came just two days
after McGovern's colossal defeat, and one day after Sen. Lloyd
Bentsen (D-Tex.) called for her replacement. Some long-time
party members have labelled Westwood "too close to McGovern"
to be effective in the post.

It was "up, up and away" for the 40 contestants who entered the creative balloon contest yesterday. The contest was sponsored by

Fired is deputy Carol Compton,
dismissed by Harvey for allegedly
ripping up a Harvey bumperstick-
er, an act which Compton denies.
Demoted are Lt. Tom Dorrance
and Sgt. Richard Coppernoll. The
two are now jail guards.
Harvey, who ran a poor third in{
the election on the American In-
dependent Party ticket, reported-

taking the actions Wednesday and
is unavailable for comment.
Owings denies knowledge of
Harvey's reasons for the firings

left town without informing him of
the actions he had taken.
Pending arbitration, the union
may try to get Compton back on
the payroll and maintain Copper-

rank by obtaining a circuit court

The union may also sue Washte-

Two major allocations and a

housing boards were passed during
last night's Student Government

for six new Coundil members.
Reportedly, a motion to remove

from office was postponed until
next week.
The new housing board plan,
which passed unanimously, will re-
organize housing services within
two weeks.
University housing, previously
controlled by a unit committee of
the Office of Student Services
Policy Board (OSSPB) would be
controlled by the University Hous-

At present, it has not been de-
termined who will be appointed to
the Board or how the Board will
be appointed.
In other action, Council approved
a $1,500 allocation to the Commu-
nity Research Internship Program,
designed to "make the University's
knowledge and skills more acces-
sible to active members of the

Last evening Kritanananda Swami spoke and
chanted to about 30 people at the Modern Lan-

Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta, the founder of
the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
"You are not the body. The body is only matter;
the person is not the body but the spirit soul, the
conscience." oreached Kirtanananda.

"The love of god is lying dormant in the soul
of every living thing. In our human form we can
manifest this love by meditation, concentrating
on the supreme by hearing god's name," Kirtan-
ananda informed the audience in a soft reverent
He then invited the group to participate in a
conscienciousness raising chant. "Hare Krishna,

by the rhythmic throbbing of a drum and cymbals.
After each repetition of the chant, the pace
