dough 'for dope
The U.S. Department of Health, Education and
Welfare yesterday approved a $100,392 grant to the
University to study the effects of liberalized mari-
juana legislation. Our friends in Washington would
like to know whether or not relaxed pot laws have
anything to do with the amount of weed being
smoked, and have wisely chosen the Dope Capital
of the Midwest as the site of their study. Dr. Lloyd
Johnston of the University's Institute for Social Re-
search will be conducting the investigation. May
we say, 'Dr. Johnston, that we're smoking less
and enjoying it more?
Mann & Hiss
The dean of the University School of Dentistry,
Dr. William Mann, has been elected president of
the Michigan Health Council, an association of
over 100 health and professional organizations.
The Health Council helps place medical profes-
sionals in sparsely-served areas of the state. Dr.
Roland Hiss of the Department of Postgraduate
Medicine has been named to the organization's
Board of Trustees, as well. Do good, boys.
Happenings.. .
such as they are, begin at 10 this morning
with a seminar-workshop on Zen Buddhism in the
Kuenzel Room of the Union. A $10 donation is
requested, and the affair is a BYOB (bring your
own blanket). At 9 o'clock tonight, Meekreh spon-
sors a Disco in the North Pit of Markley Hall,
with WRCN ... then, at 9:30, the Roots Trio jazz

Antitrust
Would you trust Wayne Hays over Ralph Nader?
Wilbur Mills over Walter Cronkite? Neither would
anyone else, according to pollster Louis Harris.
He testified before a House committee Thursday
that most people believe consumer groups, the
media, the White House, state and local govern-
ments, and farm organizations follow higher eth-
ics than do the much-maligned occupants of Cap-.
itol Hill. Eighty-seven per cent of those polled
agreed with the statement: "Because they hold
high offices of'public trust, congressmen should

be expeated to maintain higher ethical standards
than other people." Amen.

Welfare cheaters, cont.
A 67-year-old Miami woman has had her un-
employment benefits revoked because she also
collects a pension of $2.31 a week. The unemploy-
ment payments only amounted to $25 a week to
begin with; Jessie Flom filed for them after be-
ing laid off from the job she worked for seven
years at a Miami department store. "First I got
a letter saying I would get the $25 a week, and
then two weeks later I, got a letter saying I
wouldn't get it because I had a pension," said
Flom. "They laid me off because I was 65. Ten
dollars a month they give me, and for that I
can't collect unemployment."

Cornell se
By DAVID GOODMAN
Frank Rhodes is the unanimous first choice of the
Cornell University Presidential Search Committee
and will visit the Ithaca, New York campus soon
to meet with faculty, staff and students.
Committee Chairman Austin Kiplinger announced
yesterday that Michigan's Vice-President for Aca-
demic Affairs was "a preferred candidate" for the
post.
A SOURCE close to the committee quoted in the
Cornell Sun went further, saying Rhodes was the
only candidate still being seriously considered by the
committee.
"The fact that he is the only candidate who has
been invited here makes him more or less the top

arch group:
candidate," acknowledged search committee mem-
ber George Peter, a Cornell employe.
"He is the person the trustee committee is favor-
ing." added Prof. Donald Holcomb, another search
group member.
HOWEVER, Holcomb cautioned, "We have no
commitment to him. He has no commitment to us."
'When contacted last night, Rhodes indicated he
planned to visit Cornell, adding, "We haven't worked
out the exact details."
He refused to comment on the degree of his in-
terest in the presidential post, however: "You heard
what I said the other night (Wednesday). I have
nothing further to say at this time."
THE DECISION to invite Rhodes to Cornell came

Rhodes

at the search committee's Thursday meeting in New
York City.
Committee member Lauryn Guttenplan, a Cornell
student, attributed the group's preference for Rhodes
to "his enthusiasm about confronting new challenges
as president, especially now, when many private
schools have to compete for students." Cornell Uni-
versity is a semi-private institution, with some pub-
lic colleges.
Holcomb said Rhodes fulfilled all the criteria the
committee originally set for the new Cornell presi-
dent. He gave these as:
" a history of "emersion in the academic en-
terprise";
* knowledge of the role and purpose of the uni-
versity;
" administrative experience;
" a capacity for leadership;

Five locals charged
wit eroin delivery
By LAURIE YOUNG
Five loca, people are being held in Washtenaw County Jail on
seven felony counts of heroin"delivery stemming from an investi-
gation by the Washtenaw Area Narcotics Team (WANT').
Two women and three men were arrested and arraigned in Ann
Arbor 15th District Court this week for city deliveries of an un-
disclosed amount of heroin last December and January.
POLICE ARE STILL looking for four other persons believed
to be connec:ed to these and five other deliveries, according to
Washtenaw County Prosecutor William Delhey..
Gary Ulmer, a former 15th District Court probation officer, is
charged with two deliveries and is being held at a total of $100,000
bond.
Ulmer, who lives at 246 Kirk in Ypsilanti, is due to be sen-
tenced next week in Ann Arbor Circuit Cgurt on four other heroin
delivery charges, according to Delhey. These charges stem from
deliveries which took place in December, 1975, to which Ulmer had
pleaded guilty last December.

Despite Governor Milliken's
energy saving warning, a Daily
survey reveals that nost cam-
pus mierchants have refused -to
cut their store hours; opting in-
stead to dial down thermostats
and take other cold weather
precautions.
Of 13 campus area businesses
surveyed, only three have re-
sponded to Milliken's Wednes-
day plea to cut store hours.
FOLLETT'S Book Store, Lo-
gos Book Store and Jacobson's
have scheduled a reduction in
selling hours totalling 23 hours
per week. However, other busi-
nesses assert that a reduction in
hours would result in temporary
layoffs.

"I'm taking this a step at a
time," Village Corner Manager
Dick Scheer explained. "We've
turned down the thermostats
and built a double door on our
main entrance.
"If we have to curtail hours,
it's going to cause some unem-
ployment. I think I'll wait for
an order or at least for a little
firmer jawboning from the gov-
ernmentdbefore we cut hours,"
he added.,
IN THE meantime, Logos will
be losing 15 hours of business as
it moves up its weekday closing
times from 11 to 9 p.m., and
9:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
The reduced hours will be
maintained "until the crunch is

over," said Logos manager
Doug Hardwick.
Follett's will open a half-hour
later and close a half-hour ear-
lier starting Monday, resulting
in a six-hour cutback.
"THAT MAY be modified,"
noted manager Anse Cates,
"based on further energy devel-
opments and the reaction of oth-
er businesses in the area. If we
can get our clientele interested

in a five-day week and if our
competitors - Ulrich's and Uni-
versity Cellar - go to it, we'll
go to it."
One of Ulrich's owners, How-
ard Baker, however, said the
store had no plans to curtail
hours. "But we'll do whatever
the government tells us to," he
added.
"We've already cut out our
night stock crew; now we do all

Carter seeks. power
tolimit Ibureaucracy
By AP and UP'I
WASHINGTON - In a first step to redeem a major campaign
promise, President Carter asked Congress yesterday for four-year
authority to reorganize the federal bureaucracy, subject to vetoes
by either the Senate or flouse.
Carter is seeking the authority available to each President
since Harry Truman in the early 1950s.
CARTER SAID the plan would provide "an efficient way for
Congress and the President to work together to streamline our
government."
The legislation would authorize Carter to prdpose reorganization
plans that would automatically take effect unless vetoed by either
branch of Congress within 60 days.
