Brock calls for Bell's removal

The great tray ride
From the steal-from-the-hand-that-feeds-you department: Dor-
mitory cafeteria workers have noticed a significant increase in the
number of trays that never quite make it to the dishroom. Seems last
week's super snow saw many trays slip-sided away off tabletops and
unto the whitewashed slopes of the Arb. Said one South Quad em-
ployee: "You know they (students) rip off anything-bowls, silver-
ware-but the trays get stolen all at once." Alas, the situation has
become chancey at Alice Lloyd where, down from a season start of
700, there are only 575 trays left, or about one for each resident. Asked
if West Quad was running short of the molded plastic platters, Em-
ployee Reiche Hildegarde replied: "I guess so. Why, you've found
some?" No but we're looking.
Risking life and limb
Leave it up to dogs and little kids to always steal the show. Dr.
James Sherman's Physiology 101 lecture was disrupted earlier this
week when a scruffy-looking canine marched down the aisle and took
his place on stage with the prof. Sherman, not to be upstaged, advised
the intruder, that perhaps Med Sci II, within whose confines cadavers
are contemplated and esophaguses examined, was a dangerous place
to be roaming unattended. The dog trotted out shortly thereafter.

Clad in snazzy patch-work clown suits, three gentlemen from the
University Activities Center (UAC) startled passers-by as they dan-
ced around campus yesterday. The three, advertising UAC's up-
coming Michigras, Ann Arbor's answer to New Orlean's Mardigras)

out free popcorn to the ravished lunch hour crowd. "The ruffles
around my neck keep me warm," chortled one of the clowns, "only my
hands are cold.,"

The price of success
From the gee-life-is-rough department: What does First Lady
Rosalyn Carter find most wearing and demanding about life in the

White House? Guest speaker at the annual dinner of the Americus and
' Sumpter County Chamber of Commerce earlier this week, the country
girl from Plains, Georgia said: "The hardest thing you have to do is
stay dressed up all the time." Oh, the price of success.
On the outside . . .
Our havenly sources inform us that the outlook for the next two
days is hardly celestial. A high of 160, a low of 20 and one to two inches
of snow will keep us earthbound. Monday's precipitation prophecy is
the same and the high will be 14° and the low will hit a big fat 00.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republi-]
can Party Chairman Bill Brock
yesterday called for the removal ofI
Attorney General Griffin Bell, saying
he has turned the Justice Depart-:
ment into a political clearinghouse.

late 1976, was ousted by Bell last
month after he refused to stay on as a
lame-duck caretaker while a Demo-
cratic replacement was being
A spokesman for the Justice De-

' -. - it is painfully


vious that Attorneyk
General Bell has, indeed,
politicized the Justice
Department and its ap-
pointments process-and
for that breach of trust he
should resign or be fired.'
-GOP chairman
Bill Brock

IN HIS statement, Brock quoted
Bell's news conference remarks in
which the attorney general sought to
justify the administration's action on
the grounds that Marston "was
recommended by Republican Sen.
Richard Schweiker. He had not prac-
ticed law in a long time, and only for
a short time at that time . .. He must
have been perceived as a person who
was out of a senator's office and
there were Democrats complaining
about it."
Brock, however, said there "hard-
ly seems to be evidence Marston 'had
politicized his office'."
"To the contrary, Marston's record
was that of a vigorous and highly
capable prosecutor who obtained
convictions of corrupt public officials
of both major political parties - and
he was on the trail of more.
"ONE TARGET of Marston's in-
vestigation, Rep. Joshua Eilberg,
(D-Pa.), requested and received
intervention by the President, him-
self, in removing Marston from his
job," Brock said.
Carter has said hewas unaware
that Eilberg was under investigation
at the time of his telephone conversa-
tion with the congressman.
Brock said Bell had pledged in his
confirmation hearings last year that
the Justice Department "would have

nothing to do with politics" under his
"DAVID MARSTON did not politi-
cize the United States attorney's
office in Philadelphia, but it is
painfully obvious that Attorney Gen-
eral Bell has, indeed, politicized the
Justice Department and its appoint-
ments process =~ and for that breach
of trust he should resign or be fired,"
the Republican chairman said.

Two films by the most diabolical
mind in movies, John Waters.

"Such serious ethical,.political and
legal issues surround Attorney Gen-
eral Bell's recent conduct at the
Justice Department that - by his
own rationale for firing David Mar-
ston as United States attorney in
Philadelphia - the attorney general
himself should resign immediately or
be summarily discharged by the
President," Brock said.
IN A STATEMENT released by
GOP headquarters here, Brock cited
Bell's statement at a news confer-
ence Friday that Marston was fired
because he "had politicized his
office." Brock charged that Bell had
politicized his office - the nation's
top law enforcement agency.
Marston, a Republican appointed
by then-President Gerald Ford in

partment said yesterday that Bell
was unavailable for comment on
Brock's statement.
DURING A NEWS conference it
Portland, Ore., on Friday, however,
Bell said he had considered resigning
during the Marston affair because he
felt he had let President Carter down
by not knowing who was being inves-
tigated by Marston when the decision
was being made to remove him.
"I think I've been damaged," Bell
said. He said he plans to release a full
report on the case soon.
The Marston affair has become a
major political issue because Mar-
ston had successfully prosecuted
several public officials during his
brief tenure in Philadelphia and was
investigating others, including some
influential Democratic congressmen.
