Green protests
Chemistry Prof. Mark Green is unhappy with the review
committee report which branded his showing of an anti-war slide
show "inappropriate", and he has asked the American Associa-
tion of University Professors (AAUP) to back his efforts to over-
turn it. Among other things, Green wants AAUP to send an
investigating team from Washington to Ann Arbor to look into
the matter. His attorney, law Prof. Robert Burt, wants AAUP
to tell the chemistry department that its report is wrong and
shouldn't be considered in Green's present tenure proceedings.
City sued
Yet another group of disgruntled businessmen is suing the
city for failure to approve site plans for their shopping centers.
Stadium Row Development Inc. wants to build on W. Stadium
near the Post Office, and the Packard Plat Plaza Inc. wants
to put their center on the corner of Packard and Platt Roads.
Their 1.5 million suit claims the city is illegally delaying ap-
proval of site plans which conform to city ordinances. A hearing
has been set for 3 p.m. Friday before Acting Circuit Court
Judge Francis O'Brien.
Gill for president?
SGC Vice President for Minority Affairs Lee Gill is being
groomed to run a second time for the body's top spot on the
Igrt ticket. Only this year the Integrity Party includes
present SGC President Bill Jacobs, and the remnants of his
GROUP party. Speaking of Gill's future, one Council member
commented: "Since he became veep, he has gotten thousands
(of dollars) for black newspapers and black speakers. They are
grooming him for the spot." Gill himself, however, isn't saying
much. "I've learned never to say what I'm not going to do,"
he commented yesterday.
Harvey denies
Lame duck sheriff Douglas Harvey claimed yesterday that
his ,axing of sheriff's department employes who backed Republi-
can Harold Owings in the recent election was not politically
motivated. A woman employe was fired and two officers were
demoted but the action was protested and the three are rein-
stated. "If I were to dismiss or remove from office all those
who worked for Undersheriff Owings there would be 20 such
cases. Policits had nothing to do with action I took in those
three cases," Harvey said.
Water, water everywhere
In the wake of the recent storm and flooding which left
hundreds of Michigan families homeless, government leaders
are beginning to grapple with a problem of monumental pro-
portions. With lake levels several feet above normal and still
rising traditional flood prevention methods are no longer ade-
quate. U.S. Rep. James O'Hara (D-Utica) says he would like
to see Chicago allowed to take 10,000 cubic feet of water a
second out of Lake Michigan instead of their present limit of
3,200. He has also proposed closing locks on the St. Mary
River between Lake Superior and Lake Huron.

Germans in the UN?
BONN - West German Foreign Minister Walter Scheel indi-
cated yesterday he expects his country to be admitted to the
United Nations by next September. According to Scheel, Ger-
many will submit a membership application next spring and the
matter will be taken up at the General Assembly's next regular
session opening in September, 1973.
Drink up
WASHINGTON - Bad news for the Pepsi Generation! Rep.
Les Aspin (D-Wisc.) revealed yesterday that Pepsi Cola, Coca
Cola and other firms are running unsanitary operations "hav-
ing the potential for causing or already having caused product
contamination." He got his information from the General Ac-
counting Office and the Food and Drug Administration.
Soldiers spooked
WEST POINT - Ever since the ghost moved in, they haven't
been able to convince anyone to stay in a new-empty room in

the U.S. MilitaryAcademy barracks. The two -plebes who form-
erly occupied the room reported visits by an apparition wearing
a 1830s cavalry uniform holding a musket and sporting a handle-
bar moustache.
Satan marches on
VATICAN CITY - Whole societies have fallen under the
domination of Satan. That's the word from Pope and leading
Satan authority Paul VI, who said that sex and narcotics provided
Satan's opening for infiltrating mankind. The remarks came
during a speech on "the mystery of wickedness" yesterday.
Mistaken identity
From reading his story on SGC yesterday, it would appear
that Daily staffer Paul Travis has forgotten the distinction be-
tween male and female - the first time that's happened since
we've known him. Travis identified Margaret Miller as the only
woman on SGC. There are in fact three others - Valda McClain,
Mela Wyeth, and Bridget Kehoe - who serves as coordinating
vice president. We're sorry for the error and even sorrier for

EDITOR'S NOTE: This analysis of
the University's intramuralaand

a three part series compiled by
Daily sports writers.
BUREAUCRACY-A system of gov-
ernment by bureau heads respon-
sible" only to administrative officers
above them, having complete power
over subordinates, and, in official
duties generally not subject to the
common law of the land. Hence, in
general, such a system which has
become narrow, rigid, and formal,
depends on precedent, and lacks
initiative and resourcefulness. web-

The Athletic Department and the
University are bureaucracies and,
as a result, not always responsive

to the needs of their sub-depart-
ment. One glaring example of this
is the Department of Intramurals
and Recreation.

Part 3
The present organizational struc-
ture of the University -places the
IM Department four steps away
from the University executive of-
ficers. It is the executive officers

who communicate with the Regents
on matters of University policy.
Despite the bureaucratic red
tape, the University administrators
and the Regents must be aware of
the inadequacies of the present
IM facilities. There have been too
many articles written and too
many committee reports submitted
for the University Administration
to be oblivious to the predicament.
In fact, the creation of the Ad-
visory Committee on Recreation,
Intramurals, and Club Sports
(ACRICS) in 1968 was an attempt
by the Regents to bridge the gap
between the administration and the
intramural department. But the
actions of ACRICS, as evidenced
by its large expenditure on the
Tartan Turf practice field, have
not clearly been in the best in-

terests of intramurals and recrea-
As a result, the only communi-
cations that the IM department
conducts with the university must
follow a long upward path before
reaching the necessary people.
Rodney Grambeau, Director of
Intramurals and Recreation claims,
"Students or SACUA (Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University
Affairs) are the only ones who can
put real pressure on the executive
officers and the Regents."
Since ,ACRICS' creation very
little if anything has been done by
the University to alleviate the fi-
nancial crisis in the Intramural

The commission returned to the

Several University officials, in-

MCRC and developed a counter-
proposal for the Regents to con--

Fleming claims that the MCRC's
plan to set up the Afro-American
