Kleindienst: More years
CAMP DAVID-Although President Nixon announced yes-
terday controversial Atty. Gen. Richard Kleindienst will con-
tinue to fill his post, it was also announced that five top Justice
Dept. officials will be leaving, although Press Secretary Ronald
Ziegler "as usual, avoided saying any of the five officials had
been fired," according to UPI. In another department's shake-up,
Ziegler announced that two Interior Dept. officials-Harrison
Loesch, assistant secretary for public land management and
Lewis Bruce, commissioner of Indian affairs-would be leav-
ing. Interior Sec. Rogers Morton (who will be staying) added
a third name later when he announced the resignation of John
Crow, deputy commissioner of Indian affairs. The three leav-
ing the Interior Dept. were the men most involved with the re-
cent Indian takeover of the Bureau of Indian Affairs offices.
Speaking of Nixon's second-term cabinet, now complete, UPI
announced the obvious: "The 11 officials, like those who served
in Nixon's first term cabinet, are all male and all white."
Dope note
Circuit Court Judge Ross Campbell agreed yesterday to
hear an appeal of the ruling that struck down the city's liberal
marijuana law. The law was declared unconstitutional Sept. 29
by District Court Judge Sandorf Elden. City Attorney Jerry Lax
who is handling the appeal says no date has as yet been set
for the next hearing. Local dope smokers are thus advised to
keep their stashes concealed for the time being.
Sorry, wrong number
Contrary to popular opinion, star Daily sports writer and
noted campus dilettant William "Froggie" Alterman DID NOT
put that classified ad in yesterday's Daily reading "Not nice
Jewish boy needs a date. Cute but no personality." Rather it
was some nefarious (and perhaps frustrated) business staffer
who sought to make fun of poor William's social life. Little did
the culprit realize, however, that Froggie would be literally
flooded by calls from bored coeds with nothing more erotic to
do. Unfortunately, academics being what they were, and Wil-
liam being the chicken that he is, no dates were arranged for
the hapless lad. One lucky person did, however, have the du-
bious distinction of being set up with William's roommate.

More talks
PARIS-United States presidential envoy Henry Kissinger
met yesterday with North Vietnamese negotiator Le Duc Tho for
the fifth time this week to try to iron out difficulties in making
a peace settlement, also spoke with French Pres. Georges Pom-
pidou. The four-and-a-half hour negotiations bring to 15 hours
the time Kissinger and Tho have spent meeting this week. A
news blackout over the meetings remained yesterday.
Dems hassle
WASHINGTON-A badly-splintered Democratic National
Committee continued to slug it out for the fate of the top post
of that committee yesterday. Present Chairwoman Jean West-
wood called her chief challenger Robert Strauss a "Democrat
for Nixon," and Strauss' people answered that he'd raised $1
million for Democrats" this fall. Westwood says she'll step
down if Strauss will, too, in favor of a compromise candidate.
Meanwhile, the Westwood camp claims enough votes to defeat
her ouster; and the Strauss camp claims enough votes to elect
him in an open race between the two. Waiting in the wings as
alternate choices are former chairman Larry O'Brien and for-
mer vice-presidential candidate Sargent Shriver. Also waiting
is Shirley Chisholm, who sources say may become the party's
vice-chairperson if Strauss takes the lead slot.


'Judges order delay
'" s
in cross-busing plan
CINCINNATI uR-A federal appeals court yesterday up-
held District Court Judge Stephen Roth's findings of racial
discrimination in Detroit area schools.
The court ruled, however, that all 52 suburban school
districts involved in the case must be heard in court before
any desegregation plan is implemented.
At the same time, the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
vacated a lower court's order directing the state to purchase
295 buses for use in implementing the plan.
In a 3-0 decision, the Circuit Court sent the controversial
plan for desegregating Detroit's schools back to Roth.
The court agreed with Roth's fall, 1971 finding that the
Detroit city school system is in fact segregated, and that an

effective school desegregation
plan must include suburbanl
school districts.
But it said Roth erred in not re-
quiring that each of the 52 subur-
ban districts be included in court
proceedings during which the de-
segregation plan evolved. Each
should be given the opportunity to
be heard, the court ruled in an 80-
page decision.
It added. however. that "It will

His eyes, how they twinkled, his dim-

His cheeks were like roses; his nose

His droll little mouth was drawn up

Santa Claus sat uncomfortably stuffed
into a small metal bridge chair in the back-
room of Kinney's shoestore at Arborland.
His clean shaven face was intermittently
being filled with Hostess House Popcorn.
His enormous belly rumbled as he laughs
and clearly states, "Kids today are sharp
they aren't easy to fool . . . I don't try
to fool them, but still don't use my real
name in the story . . . just call me Santa."
The Santa at Arborland is among the

A local Santa's happy lot
thousands of pillow-bellied rouge-cheeked
men across the country that are planted in
shopping malls to help drum up business
for the Christmas season. Yet this Santa
seems more real than the rest; he washes
the stray bits of popcorn down his throat
with a gulp of Mountain Dew and explains,
"I dare anybody to say that I am not
authentic . .. just one look at this stomach
and they're convinced." Het reaches his
thick arms around his enormous stomach
and pats it fondly. He weighs 465 pounds
(down from 700), and has just been released
from University Hospital where he was
recovering from a respiratory collapse.
The 39-year-old Santa is presently a resi-
dent of the Whitmore Lake Convalescent
Center and admits that "being Santa Claus
is as good therapy for me as it is fun for
the children . . . I admit that the stores
are out to make money, but I just do it

because I love the kids . . . I haven't
received any instructions to push toys."
Santa retrieves his custom-made suit
(Hollywood Costumes-$125) and starts get-
ting made up as St. Nick. He has been a
children's entertainer for the last 18 years,
specializes in puppetry, and is a member
of Clowns of America. He explains how he
views his role as Santa Claus-simply--and.
sincerely. "Children are my first love and
I wouldn't do it if I thought that I was
hurting them. There is more to being a
Santa than just the costume . . . if you
don't love the kids it will show through
no matter how much make-up you wear."

is fastened in place, and presto-chango

NEW YORK (UPI) - "Life" magazine, an
American journalistic institution which for 36
years provided its readers with an unprecedented
panorama of the world's people and events, will
publish its last issue Dec. 29, its publishers said
yesterday, the victim of an advertising market
forever changed by television.
Hedley Donovan, editor-in-chief of Time, Inc.,
and Andrew Heiskell, chairman of the board, said

"Though we did not plan 'Life' as a war mag-
azine, it turned out that way," the late Henry
R. Luce, founder of "Life" and head of Time,
Inc., once said.
"Life" unsparingly gave its readers images
of death, violence and destruction. In 1969 it ran
the faces of 242 Americans killed in Vietnam
during the single week of May 28-June 2-a
photo story that had far-reaching impact.
