VA /\AXlI, No. 74
Ann Arbor, Michigan-Wednesday, December 6, 1972

Rip this joint?
Like Lazarus from the. dead, Student Government Council's
Dope Cooperative proposal will be resurrected in the near future,
according to SGC politicos. To avoid legal difficulties, Margaret
Miller has suggested that SGC establish a separate, independent
nation on the corner of Catherine and State Streets, with abolish-
ed dope laws for the budding state. One wise student went a step
further and proposed the entire city of Ann Arbor be levitated to
the clouds, exempting it from earthbound regulations. Angered at
a Daily reporter's skepticism, he announced that The Michigan
Daily's building will be left behind. The press never has any fun!
A rose by other names
City Council Monday night approved the erection(?) of a
new restaurant on Stadium. Elsewhere in this nation-wide chain,
it is called Sambo's. However, after strenuous council objections
to what they called the racist implications, the' owners agreed
to change "their name. Despite extensive assurances as to the
decor, however, Council member Norris Thomas (Dem-First
Ward) insisted, "I still think those chairs are watermelon
A significant fraction of the Ann Arbor Fire Department
responded to a report of smoke odor in the SAB yesterday aft-
ernoon. According to Russell Downing, University Fire Marshal,
the smell of smoke came from a wastebasket in which a fire
had started and burned out several days before. The building
was not evacuated, Downing said, because smoke odors often
result from burned-out fluorescent tubes.
Free West Quad
In one of the most hotly contested races of the decade, West
Quad members yesterday failed to elect a president to their
dorm's council. Four parties, including the Quorum Party, the
Joint Coalition and the "4 Q" party struggled with the electoral
system, which finally shattered when Al Zeller's insurgent Camp-
bell Filter Party took enough write-in votes to deny anyone a ma-
jority. Run-offs will be held Monday, and meanwhile, the Fil-
ter's keep fighting, pushing such-proposals as free ping pong
lessons, free rolling papers, free anarchy and free Al Zeller. The
quaddie air must do something to people.. ..
School kids trip on out
In one of the more extensive busing efforts of recent years, 16
children from Clonlara school, a private "experimental" school
here, are going by school bus down to an on-the-scene classroom
for a special lesson tomorrow: Watching Apollo 17 lift off from
Cape Kennedy. The bus, plus a parents' car pulling a borrowed
trailer, left over a week ago for stops in Kentucky, Alabama,
Georgia, and finally Florida. Parents and students have been
planning the trip for five months. Hmmph. The biggest elemen-
tary school field trip today remembers having taken was to the
state capital. Some people have all the luck.
Several places inside to be on this bitter day. For start-
ers, try the Poli Sci coffee hour in 6602 Haven Hall, 3:30-5 pm
If journalism's more your thing, take in Ben Bagdikian, the
well-known media critic at 4 p.m. in Aud. C . . . Another coffee
hour, this one hosted by the Grads, will take place at 8 pm., in
Rackham's East Conference Room . . . Later, at 9 p.m., the
Jewish Cultural League is sponsoring a Chanukah (or Hannuka,
depending) party at Markley-the 4th floor Butler Lounge .
And, if you want a real change, attend the meeting of the LSA
Student Government (didn't know you had one, did you?) at 7
pm in the Union's Homer Heath Lounge.
Henry scores again
WASHINGTON - A worried administration received as-
surances that it's favorite son, Henry the K, has been busy doing
homework on the peace talks and not, he repeats, not, escorting
a mysterious blonde the America press reports him as escorting.
According to news sources, Kissinger "picked up" a blonde wo-
man in the Paris Latin quarter Monday and drove her back to
the residence of Jack Kubisch, acting U. S. ambassador, where
Henry is staying. Dear Henry denied all in a transatlantic phone
call to White House Press Secretary Ron Ziegler yesterday, and
asked Ziegler to "make the point that he (Kissinger) worked
well into the night" Monday. Worked well at what? We thinks
the gentleman doth protest too much.
Stamps, sexism and the Court
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court agreed to hear several
cases as it went through the dockets on Monday. Among them
is a case involving a challenge to the Pittsburgh Press by the
National Organization for Women (NOW). The Press classifies
its want ads as "jobs-male interest" and "jobs-female interest,"
which seems, at least to NOW members, discriminatory. In an-
other case, the high Court has agreed to review a Congressional
attempt to prohibit distribution of food stamps to poor people
living in communes. The question is: Can food stamp assistance
be limited to those who are related? (related to whom, today
wants to know)
NEW YORK-Zero population growth (ZPG) proponents, re-
joice! For the first time, the nation's fertility rate has dropped
below the "replacement" level of 2.1 children per family needed
to achieve zpg. If the 2.1 fertility rate were maintained for 70
years, the U. S. population level would stabilize at about 320
million (it is now about 209.3 million). The fertility rate decline
it attributed to a variety of factors, including the desire of
women for smaller families - or no family at all, the number
of working wives, more effective contraception, and the slowly-
liberalizing contraception laws.
Remember the "folks who bring you Christmas" want your
packages mailed by Dec. 10 and your cards sent out by Dec.
15. There will be some nine billion pieces of holiday mail this
year, say postal officials. Don't let yours be last in line.

PARIS-Peace talks between U. S. Presidential Adviser
Henry Kissinger and Hanoi's envoy Le Duc Tho were mys-
teriously adjourned yesterday as President Nixon issued fur-
ther instructions to his negotiator during the halt.
Neither the U. S. Embassy nor the North Vietnamese dele-
gation could offer any reason for the one-day break in the
talks, now believed to be in their final phase.
Kissinger and Tho, who held two meetings here Monday
in the renewed round of talks on a cease-fire agreement, will
hold their next meeting today, a U. S. official said.
There had been some speculation that yesterday's cancella-
tion might be a ruse to shake off the hordes of newsmen and
television crews hounding the secret meetings.

that states can shut down bars

Justice William Rehnquist, in
a sexually explicit majority opin-
ion, said the First Amendment
freedom does not go beyond
books and movies to "gross sex-
uality" - real or simulated sex-
ual acts - in public.
Besides, he said, the 21st
Amendment in ending prohibition
gave the states broad controls
over the sale of liquor in bars
and night clubs.
The ruling came in a case from
Los Angeles where, officials said,
"acts of sexual intercourse, mas-
turbation, sodomy, bestiality, oral
copulation and flagellation" were
being passed off as "dancing"
Justices William Douglas, Wil-
Liam Brennan Jr., and Thurgood
Marshall dissented while Chief
Justice Warren Burger and Jus-
tices Peter Stewart, Byron White,
Harry Blackmun and Lewis Pow-
ell Jr. supported Rehnquist.
The decision reverses a three-
judge federal court ruling of
April, 1971 which found the regu-
lations to be unconstitutional in

He said there is not one word
in the history of the 21st Amend-
ment to indicate that Congress
meant to tamper in any way
with First Amendment ights.
Similarly, Brennan said "noth-

the 21st Amendment authorizes
the states to use their liquor lic-

The landmark ruling is likely
to have an impact reaching be-
yond California to bars and night-
clubs in all states that sell liquor
by the drink while displaying
real or simulated sexual acts.
Since the California regulations
upheld by the court specifically
prohibit the display of genitals,
authorities everywhere would ap-
pear to have a green light to ban

a legal precedent because it sep-

As Rehnquist put the distinc-
tion: ". . . as the mode of ex-

Reacting to the high C o u r t
decision, spokespersons for San
Francisco's topless - bottomless
night clubs predicted a wave of
censorship and court cases be-
cause of the ruling.
"The Department of Alcoholic
Beverage Control (ABC) is going
to end up being a censorship
board in every topless and bot-
tomless night club in California,"

"With the investment tied up on
on Broadway we would have to
go to court and fight it," Rosen-
berg said of any attempts to
implement the court ruling.

presents feature only nude danc-

Two Israeli emissaries left their
New York offices early this week
and unobtrusively checked into an
Ann Arbor hotel. Their mission:
Feel out sentiment towards Israel
on campus and open communica-
tion networks to students interested
in the country.
Exactly what did these Israeli
foreign agents discover? "Apathy,"
said Yaacov Levik, of the Israeli
Foreign Service. "Perhaps some-
thing closer to pacifism?" Shulamit
Bahat, of the nationwide Israeli
Student Organization, suggested.
"They are one and the same," said
Both seemed dismayed at the
lack of interest students displayed,
not only in Israel, but in world
affairs generally. They were par-
ticularly disheartened at the stu-
dent non-reaction to the killings at
"There is a feeling of who cares?
Let them live, let them die, it
makes no d if fe re n ce," Levi
As for Israel, the officials said
they found "more ignorance than
any real anti-Israel feeling," al-
though they did observe extremism
"here and there." Their purpose is
to try to change that.
"We are here to generate interest
'in Israel within the American uni-
versities, specifically by providing'
films and speakers, organizing con-
ferences, and getting interested
students-Israeli and American-in
touch with each other," Bahat ex-
Bahat and Levi's visit to Ann
Arbor lasted just one day, during
which they spoke with professors,
students, and the directors of'
Hillel. They admit there is littlej
they can accomplish on any one
campus other than making sug-
gestions and leaving behind trails
But they were impressed by the
University's Judaic Studies Pro-j
gram and at the variety and qual-
ity of other programs in the com-
munity at-large, particularly the
offerings of Hillel.
"Schools like this serve as ex-
amples. When we travel to schools
with judaic studies programs, we
can point out the success you have
had and say, 'see, it is working'
there,' " Levi said.
From Ann Arbor, the Israelis
will head for Kent State and Case
Western Reserve in Cleveland be-
fore returning to New York. Later
they expect to visit several schools
in the south.
Although they are not actively
recruiting, the Israelis try to en-
courage students to immigrate to
Israel. They believe student re-
sponse indicates Israel remains the
'"promised land" to many Jewish
"Here we advertised 'Israel

just seeking information. Many
American students have come to

satisfied," Levi said.
