More layoffs
As Gov. Milliken called for statewide energy
harnessing, the General Motors' Assembly Divi.
sion plant at Willow Run idled some 3,650 workers,
cutting GM's auto output in half. This increases
to 4,850 the employes laid off since Monday from
GM's 10,000-employe Hydra-Matic transmission
plant at Willow Run.
Punxsutaw ney prediction
You can't count on Punxsutawney, Pa. for too
much news. bit once a year the city's most fa-
mous resident, Punxsutawney Phil, makes front
pages all over the country. And this year, as us-
ual, Phil was the bearer of bad news. The coun-
try's official weather - forecasting groundhog was
lifted from his burrow at sunrise yesterday and,
according, to Phil's interpreters, forecast six more
weeks of winter. And that's not just speculation
because Charles Erhanrd, president of the Ground-
hog Club, verified it after he and Phil exchanged a
few words in "groundhogese".

All for love
They say love has no bounds, and that was
obviously the case with 13-year-old Lynn Barillier
of Glendale, Cal. who was so depressed over the
suicide of comedian Freddie Prinze that she took
her life late Tuesday. She died at Vergudo Hills
Hospital about 28 hours after shooting herself
through the head with her father's .38 caliber
handgun, police said. She had left a note indicat-
ing her despondency over the death of 'Chico'.
CREEPS
Yes, we still have Richard Nixon to kick around.
Although the tricky former president is long gone
from the White House, his 1972 campaign fund
lingers on. All $1.2 million of it. More than four
years after his re-election and two and a half
years after his resignation, reports show that the
197? Campaign Liquidation Trust -,the successor
to CREEP - is still taking in money and paying
debts - slowly. Some persons who contributed
to the 1972 Nixon campaign have tried to get their
money back but so far the trust has not honored
any such requests. Most of the niney, according
to trust officials, is being doled out to cover legal
fees for former newsmakers Maurice Stans, John
Mitchell. John Dean et. al. No word on how much
the biggest newsraker of them all is being al-

lotted.
Pay the Lord
The pastor of Miami's Central Baptist Church,
the Rev. Conrad Willard, last December offered
refunds of up to $2,000 to anyone who started
tithing - giving 10 per cent of their income to the
church - if they were dissatisfied with the church
after a week, a month or six months. So far there
have been no requests from the 400 tithers who
populate the 4,000-member parish. Apparently,
says Willard, God has only satisfied customers
among tithers. Amen.

remains a top contender for the job.
According to reports in the Cornell Sun (Cornell's student pa-
per), the Trustee Presidential Search Committee is looking seri-
ously at four or five names, Rhodes' among them.
THE SUN quoted a source close to the committee saying
Rhodes is very highly regarded by all members of the search
group.
Rhodes acknowledged last Thursday that Cornell had contact-
ed him "to explore matters of mutual interest," but refused to
elaborate. Contacted last night, Rhodes wouldn't comment on fur-
ther developments: "I don't have anything to add to that state-
men," he said.
Not everyone at Cornell is happy with the Rhodes candidacy,
however. The Community Search Committee, a student aritd staff
group aiding the Trustee Search Committee expressed concern
over Rhodes' handling of Jewel Cobb's selection for literary col-
lege dean in January, 1975.

UNDERBERG said his group was particularly concerned about
Rhodes' commitment to affirmative action for women and minori-
ties. He said the committee met earlier this week to discuss
Rhodes, and plannedo further investigate his record before mak-
ing a recommendation.
"We decided to hold off a final judgment on him till next
week," Underberg said. He indicated a decision would be made
Tuesday.
The Trustee Search Committee, meanwhile, continues its de-
liberalions today in New York City.
ONE MAN previously named as a contender for the Cornell
presidency has removed his name from consideration. Colin Camp-
bell, president of Wesleyan University, said Monday he was not in-
terested in the Cornell job. The Cornell Sun said last week that
Campbell was a candidate for the presidency at Cornell.

denied tenure by the Zoology Department.
A U' investigation of the incident said Rhodes had failed to
accord Cobb proper consideration during his talks with her.

,GEO, 'U' hearing
delayed till March
By BOB ROSENBAUM
The long-awaited contract settlement between the Graduate
Employes Organization (GEO) and the University remains un-
resolved.
Negotiators for both parties yesterday appeared at a special
unfair labor practice hearing before the Michigan Employment
Relations Commission (MERC) to present testimony. But at the
,last minute, both parties agreed to postpone the hearing until
March 16.
THE HEARING was originally called to discuss an unfair labor -
practice charge GEO has filed against the University. GEO is
contending that the University is holding up a settlement on an
issue which the union does not feel is crucial to a contract agree-
ment.
The issue in question is whether graduate and staff assistant4
in various schools should be included in a -contract between the'
University and the union. University negotiators felt that assist-

to 'rekindle a spirit of unity like
that of World War II days, so
as to cope with 'energy, econom-
ic and an array of other prob-
lems confronting his- two-week-
old administration.
"I believe we are ready for
that same spirit again - to
plan ahead, work together and
use common sense," he said.
"Not because -of war, but be-
cause we realize that we must
act together to solve our prob-
lems and because we are ready
to trust one another."
Carter spoke first of energy,
saying the country's most ur-
gent project was to develop
a national policy, the absence
of which had contriblited to a
shortage of natural gas and a
dangerous situation brought
about by the severe winter
weather.
CARTER PRAISED Congress
for its quick passage of the
emergency natural gas act he
signed hours earlier.
Carter warned that "oil and
natural gas companies must be
honest with people about their
reserves and profits. We will
find out the difference between
real shortages and artificial
ones.
"But the-Teal problem - our
failure to plan for the future
or to take energy conservation
seriously - started long before
this winter and will take much
longer to solve," he said.
THIS WINTER has made us
all realize that we have to act."

County co-ordinator gets raise
County rejects CETA plan

By DAVID GOODMAN
The County Boardaof Con-
missioners last night defeated
a plan to make the Compre-
hensive Employment and Train-
ing Act (CETA) jobs. program
- one of county government's
largest employers - into a full-
fledged department.
However, the Board did vote
nine-to-five to raisetthe salary
of CETA Coordinator Patricia.
Bambery from $17,300 to $19,000
- $15,000 less than recommend-
ed by the Board's Administra-
tion and Ways and Means Com-
mittees.
COMMISSIONER Cathy Mc-
Clary (D - Ann Arbor) who
chairs the Administration com-
mittee, blamed "sexism" for
what she termed Bambery's
"inadequate" salary. McClary,
who favored setting Bambery's
pay at $2L;000, voted against the
lower increase.
CETA was created by Con-
gress in 1973. Between Febru-
ary and October of this year,
the county will receive almost
$5 million in CETA funds, the
largest part of which will go
to anti-recessionary job pro-
grams.
The county CETA office con-
trols 390 public service jobs.
Some fifty non-profit agencies

Carter's economic proposals
have included doubling the lev-
el of CETA emergency funds.
Commissioner Kathy Fojtik
(D-Ann Arbor) argued, "The
CETA Program is a department
- let's call it what is is." How-
ever, several commissioners ex-
pressed strong reservations
about making CETA a perma-
nent part of county government
whil the federal program has
only temporary authorization.
IN OTHER ACTION, the Board
referred to the Ways and Means
Committee a proposal for beef-
ing up and reorganizing the
Friend of the Court Program.
Friend of the Court acts as an

child support payments ordered

Township) said the purpose of
the changes was "to bring the
Friend of the Court up to a
level where they can get a
check and send it out the next
day. A lot of commissioners
here have received a lot of
phone calls from a lot of peo-
ple complaining -about not get-
ting their checks."
However, Commissioner Meri
Lou Murray (D-Ann Arbor) said
an outside consulting firm had
not found any need to increase
the staff in the Friend of the
Court's office.
