Poll probe,
Mayor Robert Harris has requested an investigation of last
week's snafued general election. The city clerk and administra-
tor have been asked by Harris to prepare a list of problems in-
curred and recommendations on how to avoid a repeat per-
formance of an election which left many voters-largely students
-waiting in lines for as long as six hours. Citizens who encoun-
tered difficulties in voting are urged to notify the city clerk in
writing.
Enrollment drops
Fewer people are in college in the state these days and pro-
portionately fewer of them are men. That's what University as-
sistant registrar Ben Munn told a meeting of the Association of
Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers here yesterday.
Munn, who heads the association's Committee on Statistical In-
formation and Research, said a survey of the state's universities
and colleges shows on-campus enrollment of males is down 4.2
per cent while enrollment for females is off .6 per cent.
Allmans to show
Despite a series of tragic accidents wiping out their lead
guitarist and bassist it now appears the Allman Brothers blues
band will be appearing here as scheduled. A cable received yes-
terday by the University Activities Center announced that the
group is anxious to keep its committment to Ann Arbor and
will perform as scheduled Dec. 9. There is no word yet on who
is to replace bassist Berry Oakley.
Shirley slips
An error in unofficial election returns reveals that Circuit
Court candidate Shirley Burgoyne has 400 less votes than she
thought she had. Burgoyne finished second behind Patrick Con-
lin in the race for two seats on the bench. The revised figures
show Burgoyne with a precarious 150-vote lead over Edward
Deake who finished in third place. According to the Board of
Canvassers we won't know who actually took the second court
seat until final certification of the results can be made.
Bus cutbacks
Staying here over turkey time and wondering how you will
be able to move about? The answer is not as often and to fewer
places. North Campus buses will follow the Sunday schedule
Nov. 23-26 running to Bursley-Bates and Northwood every 45
minutes from 8 a.m. to noon and from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. They will
run every 22 minutes from noon to 8 p.m. Commuter buses will
not run at all. Sorry.
Happenings ...
... lovers of art can view a display of fine prints and draw-
ing4 produced by students at the University's art school on the
first floor of the A&D Building . . . if you're a grad student and
like coffee or if you're just curious, you could attend the Grad
Coffee Hour in the East Conference Rm. of Rackham at 8 p.m.
. . . if you missed Japanese night at Rive Gauche (or if you
went and are not satiated) there will be a presentation of Japa-
nese music at 8 p.m. at the Rackham Auditorium . mean-
while back at the Rive (1024 Hill) you can see slides of Spain
at 9 p.m. Have a nice day.
Dope notes
Federal narcotics officials are now admitting that more U.S.
heroin may be coming from Southeast Asia than they had origin-
ally claimed. New estimates from the Bureau of Narcotics and
Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) say 30 per cent of the heroin entering
the country comes from Southeast Asia instead of the five to 15
per cent previously estimated .. . BNDD was very busy yester-
day as they also made one of the biggest hashish busts on re-
cord. Over 1,100 pounds of hash with a street value of about
$50 million were captured in New York and seven persons in-
cluding two college teachers were arrested.
Market record
All future J. P. Morgans and John Rockerfellers have some
good news this morning. The Dow Jones average of thirty in-
dustrial stocks, Wall Street's most watched stock market barom-
eter, closed yesterday above the 1,000 mark for the first time in
history.
Will Wallace walk?
Alabama Gov. George Wallace may never walk again. Ac-
cording to the surgeon who removed the bullet from his back
last spring, the governor's nerve track has been damaged. "The
chances of his recovering from this paralysis are become in-
creasingly unlikely," the doctor said.
Term paper triumph
An attempt by the U. S. Postal Service to smash four Boston-
area term paper operations has met with failure in U. S. District
Court. District Judge Frank Murray denied a motion by Asst.
U. S. Atty. Frederick Kellog requesting the court to halt delivery
of the firms' mail. While agreeing the term paper operations
are "shabby", the judge told the government it had chosen the
wrong way to stop them.
Dollar diplomacy?
It is axiomatic that wherever the United States goes the
Chase Manhattan Bank goes too. And so it seemed inevitable
that with the thawing of relations with the U.S.S.R. Chase

would move in, and so they have. The international wheeling
and dealing concern announced yesterday it will open a Moscow
branch office in the near future. It will be the first U. S. bank in
the Soviet Union since the 1920's.
Peron goes home
One time Argentine strongman Juan Peron announced yes-
terday he is returning home. The former dictator has lived in
Spain since he was deposed in 1955. Person is an almost legendary
figure among the Argentine working class and the armed forces
who dethroned him two decades ago are reportedly watching for
trouble. Peron says he is returning to calm spirits at a difficult
time for the country.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This analysis of
the University's intramural sports
scene was compiled by Dpily sports
writers. It is the second of a three-
part series.
By JOEL GREER,
MICHAEL OLIN
and RANDY PHILLIPS
"Virtually all athletic depart-
ments in the United States in
the last 10 years, due to escalat-
ing costs, have been unable to
field teams, support recreational
programs and pay off bonding
issues on their buildings as they
had in the previous 40 years."
Athletic Director Don Canham
made this observation in last
month's budget report to the
Board in Control of Intercolle-
giate Athletics.

And while the athletic depart-
ment has been able to keep its
head above water in recent
years, it's beginning to feel the
the TM

strain of a tight budget this year.
The recreational and intramur-
al (IM) programs are suffering
as a result. Woeful neglect of
present facilities and the inade-

rck of
quacy of recreation and intra-
mural space are basically the
product of a funds shortage.
The funding situation is so cri-
tical that Rodney Grambeau, di-
rector of intramurals and recrea-
tion, predicts that all the money
from the intramurals' operating
budget for the year, will have
been exhausted by January.
According to the athletic de-
partment's budget report, $301,-
022 was spent on intramurals and
recreation last year. Over $165,-
000 of that money was paid in
s.2lhries and wages, while the re-
maining money goes mostly to-
wards maintenance of buildings.
The budget cannot begin to cover
the $1 million in repairs the IM
Building needs.
On the revenue side, the ath-

sufficient

letic department received only
$141,518 for the intramural de-
partment. Of this amount, the
University's general fund con-
tributed $75,000, while a portion
of the $5 per student per term
athletic fee - $46,394 - goes to
the athletic department to defray
IM costs. The balance of reve-
nue comes from a towel and
locker fee, which overall oper-
ates at a loss.
Although the report may be
slightly inaccurate due to allo-
cational errors, the IM depart-
ment still costs the athletic de-
partment approximately $160,-
000 a year.
Last year's deficit is not like-
ly to decrease. Canham says,

Thousands of families were evacuated with the aid of
National Guardsmen in Michigan and Ohio yesterday after
wind-whipped waves and heavy rain drenched the shorelines
of Lakes Erie and Huron.
Gov. William Milliken called four guard units into action
for rescue operations in Monroe County, south of Detroit,
and Bay County, northwest of Detroit on Lake Huron.
Ohio Gov. John Gilligan ordered out three companies to
assist in rescue operations in Ottawa County where hundreds
of persons already have been evacuated.

TERM BEGINS:

SGC: New hopes,

old conflicts

By PAUL TRAVIS
Daily News Analysis
If the members of the new
Student Government Council vote
their politics rather than their
emotions, there will be a strong
left-oriented majority on council.
The results of the latest election
give leftist and left-leaning coun-
cilmembers a 10 to three majority.
It put the conservative Responsible
Alternative Party (RAP) in its
weakest position in years.
Bill Jacobs, SGC president, be-
lieves council could accomplish
much this year. He feels that most

councilmembers would agree on
most of his priority issues, such as
helping the all-student University:
Housing Council take control of the
dorm system.
A non-profit grocery co-op, child
care centers, complete disclosure
of faculty salary lists, are some of
the other priority items on his list,

"RAP will be unable to block?
anything by themselves," said Mil-
ler. "They will have to get at least
four additional votes for a ma-
jority."
But there appear to be several1
problems with the new left-wing
coalition on council, that have
plagued councils in the past.

centers and the appointment of age for his GROUP and Integrity
women to Univeristy committees Party. The memory of the fraud
as top priorities. ' charges after his election adds to

the general distrust.
The distrust that has carried
over from that election has also
tarnished the reputation of SGC
Treasurer David Schaper. Schaper
was Elections Director last spring
when Jacobs was elected.
RAP has seized upon the split in
the left to try to form an alterna-
tive coalition. During the last meet-
ing, the three RAP members, Bill
Dobbs of the Tenants Union Party,
Sandy Green of Community Coali-
tion, and Dave Hornstein of the
Bullshit Party banded together to
oust Schaper.
They lacked one vote to over-
come the GROUP/Integrity six
vote bloc. Miller, an independent,
said she wouldn't vote on the ques-
tion because "it was my first meet-
ing and I didn't know enough about
Schaper's past actions to decide."
Other complaints about GROUP/
Integrity seemed to be focused at
this time upon Schaper. Charges
against Schaper of hindering the
formation 6f student organizations
by instituting unneeded forms, fil-
ing fees, and a message center
that all student organizations must
fund have been made by Dobbs.
Several members complain that
Schaper has increased the amount
of paperwork on council to the
point of absurdity. "It might be
the old adage 'The more compli-
cated you make your job, the hard-
er it is to fire you,' " suggests Mat
Dunaskiss, just re-elected on the
RAP ticket.
Schaper feels that his opponents
are conducting a "smear" cam-
paign against him. "I don't enjoy
spending hours drawing up forms.
But they are all needed. I think it

border in what Monroe County
Civil Defense Director Harold Quil-
lin called "the worst flooding I've
seen here in 18 years." Nearly
four feet of flood water was re-
ported in the area.
Monroe County officials said
damage likely will exceed $1 mil-
lion, with hundreds ofchomes in-
undated by lake water.
Meanwhile, officials in Bayl
County, northwest of Detroit, be-
gan evacuating some 7,000 persons
from low-lying beach areas along
the southwest shore of Saginaw
Bay on Lake Huron. The National
Weather Service issued a storm
tide warning and water was re-
ported nearly four feet above first-
floor levels of many cottages in the
area.
Nearly all breakwaters in a 10-
mile stretch of Saginaw Bay were
destroyed, officials said.
Willard Grevel, director of the
Bay City water works, said sand
bags were put near water wells
close to Saginaw Bay to prevent
Scontamination should further flood-
ing occur.

for the Great Lakes and Lake St.
Clair near Detroit reached record
- heights.
All Monroe County schools were
opened to serve as emergency
areas.
Rain was driven by winds up to
40 miles per hour across north-
western Ohio, causing flooding to
Lorain, Erie, Ottawa and Lucas
counties. The Red Cross set up
evacuation centers and provided
food in Ohio and Michigan.
Floodwaters engulfed the resort
city of Luna Pier near the Ohio
border, and most of the commun-

'fragging'
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuter) - A
U.S. army private yesterday was
acquitted of the hand-grenade
"fragging" deaths of two American
army officers in South Vietnam
last year in the first such trial in
the United States.'
Standing at attention, Pvt. Billy
Dean Smith listened as a jury of
seven career army officers (five
white and two black), all Vietnam
veterans, found him not guilty on
two counts of murder, two counts
of attempted murder, one count
of wounding an officer with a hand-
grenade and one count of assault
on the army sergeant who arrested
him.
However, the military court con-
victed Smith, a black, of assaulting
the sergeant who seized him an
hour and a half after the two white
officers were slain at Bien ioa
army base March 15, 1971.
During the court-martial Smith
denied on the witness stand that
he had murdered or plotted to kill
the officers.
He testified he had been smoking
marijuana with friends at the time
of the slayings.
The jury's decision automatically
will be reviewed by Maj. Gen.
Harold Moore, commanding gen-
eral of Ft. Ord, and can be ap-
pealed as high as to the U.S. Court
of Military Appeals.

Bond disillusioned by
'72 election outcome

By CINDY HILL
Disillusionment and bitterness

"Why did one try to break into
the offices of the other?"
"If George McGovern had a
fatal flaw," Bond said, "it was
that he appeared to be too friend-
ly to those at the bottom of the
social ladder."
Bond described the election as
