Fold, don't spindle or
We've been trying out some innovative ideas
at The Daily lately and today, putting your Sun-
day paper together, you'll notice we've slipped
a couple of pages in sideways. But there's a rea-
son for this lunacy. That sideways stuff is the
new tabloid-sized, 8-page Sunday Magazine. All
your favorite features; investigative pieces, and
book reviews are there as well as such added
attractions as an exclusive acrostic puzzle, a new
comic strip, and the week's "Happenings" calen-
dar. If you take those cockeyed pages out and
fold them on the crease, you'll get a better idea
of what the Magazine is all about. Better yet,
why don't you read it?

bedroom if you would have him. The former pea-

when he travels around the country. The Presi-'
dent "really doesn't get much input by shaking
hands with people," explained Greg Schneiders,
Carter's director of special projects. Citizen hosts
and hostesses, though, should be sure to turn their
thermostats down to 650 and don sweaters like
the casual Carter. Nobody has asked if all those

WASHINGTON - President
Carter declared a state of emer-
gency in Michigan yesterday be-
cause of the impact of snow, ice
and cold.
The action permits the use of
federal funds in relief and re-
covery efforts in designated por-
tions of the state.
A WHITE House spokesman
said the money will be used pri-
marily "to reopen vital supply
routes to agricultural, educa-
tional, governmental, commer-
cial and industrial establish-
ments, and-such other emergen-
cy assistance as may be re-
quired to save lives and public
property, public health and safe-
Emergency declarations also
provide these special benefits:
Military personnel and equip-
ment to clearsblocked highways
and streets; special equipment
to thaw frozen water mains;
helicopters for rescue and the
delivery of food and essential
supplies; funding to provide the
unemployed with jobs related to
emergency recovery work.
Although the spokesman said
the declaration applied to the
entire state, 11 counties were
singled out by the Federal Dis-
aster Assistance Administra-ion
to receive aid.
THEY ARE Allegan, Barry,
Cass. Chippewa, Eaton, lenia,
Oceania, Ottawa, Sanlac, Shia-
wassee and Van Buren counties.
All but Chipewa located in
the upper peninsula, are cental
and western lower peqinsula

Friday, Milliken said state and
local units of government have
spent nearly $1.6 million fkr

zard costs - causing a " eVere
financial strain" in many ares.
He also asked for reimburse-
ment for expenses already in-

curred by local government in
cleanup efforts.
Upon Carter's announcement,
a .iteam of federal disaster as-
sistance specialists set up an
office in the Lansing Post Office

advising the governor.
The three counties that could
be added to the emergency dec-
laration are Berrien, Muskegon

will be carried out under con-
tract at the direction of :he U S.

The spokesman said priority
will be given to clearing roads
which are currently blocked
while roads with at least one
lane of travel will receive sec-
ondary attention.
Army Corps of Engineers per-
sonnel will be dispatched to the
most seriously affected areas
following a survey to determine
the extent of closed roads in

Trai'n wreck,
laid to driver
By AP and UPI
CHICAGO - Transit authority officials yesterday blamed "man
failure" or human error for the deadliest elevated train crash in
Chicago history. The death toll climbed to 12 in the collision which
sent two crowded cars tumbling into a street at rush hour Friday.
"All of the equipment appeared to be in excellent working
shape," Regional Transportation Authority chairman Milton Pi-
karsky said. "There is evidence of man failure."
Appearing with Pikarsky at a joint news conference, Chicago
Transit Authority (CTA) chairman James McDonough said it was
decided to disclose the apparent error of motorman Steven Martin
in the slow speed crash to assure the public that the CTA's com-
muter trains were mechanically safe.
McDonough gave no details yesterday but said late Friday Mar-
tin could have nudged his eight-car Lake Street-Dan Ryan train
forward to strike the rear of the stopped second train on a sharp
curve in the Chicago Loop, in spite of the CTA's $25 million safety
A federal investigator said Martin violated CTA rules by - ad-
vancing his train under a caution light without first getting per-
mission from his superiors.
McDonough said the conclusion was based on an examination of
the CTA equipment and a conversation with Martin, hospitalized in
serious condition Saturday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital with
a broken pelvis and under sedation.

Gandhi rally

NEW DELHI, India VP) -
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's
first campaign rally for the
March parliamentary elections
ended abruptly yesterday when
thousands in the crowd walked
out even before the politically
embattled Indian leader finish-
ed speaking.
About 100,000 persons packed

the Delhi fairgrounds for the
well-publicized rally to kick off
the ruling Congress party's
campaign, but large groups be-
came unruly and defied baton-

of party volunteers to remain

speech, the 59-year-old prime
minister defended her 19-month-
old emergency rule and con-
demned the surprise defection
of some major Congress party
figures last week.
The rally, which lasted only
90 minutes, ended before party
president Dev Kant Borooah
and other scheduled speakers
could address the crowd.
Significantly, Gandhi's 30-
year-old son, Sanjay, the target
of increasing criticism from
opposition. politicians and Con-
gress dissidents, did not attend
the rally, although he had been
hilled as one of the main speak-
ers in posters plastered on walls
in downtown Delhi.

his mother flanked the speak-
ers' platform overlooking the
spacious Ram Lila grounds.
It was the same site where
the non-Communist opposition
launched its campaign last Sun-
day with a more orderly and
enthusiastic crowd of 50,000,
most of whom walked or took
public transport to the rally and
staved until it ended four hours
Jn contrast, many attending
Gandhi's mass meeting were
brouight in from neighboing
rural areas in buses and trucks
chartered on behalf of the Con-
gress party.

The Department of Health, Education and Wel-
fare (HEW) Friday approved a $270,000 grant
for a University study on the effects of the de-
criminalization of marijuana use.
Lloyd Johnston, a social psychologist at the In-
stitute for Social Research, said the grant will
fund 4 "sub-study on drug use titled "Marijuana
Law Changes: The Impact on Use."
THE STUDY is part, of a larger, long-term
project called "Monitoring the Future: A, Con-
tinuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of
Youth," sponsored by the National Institute on
Drug Abuse.A
.Johnston and a fellow researcher, Jerald Bach-
man. have. already collected some- of the data
which will be used in the study. In 1975, the re-
searchers began an annual survey of drug use
among high school seniors. Funded by the HEW

grant, Johnston and Bachman will continue the
surveys through 1978 and conduct annual follow-
up surveys of students after they have left high
"We'll measure all types of illicit drug use, as
well as alcohol use, plus a host of other things -
self-reported delinquency, political alienation,
trust in certain institutions and attitudes toward
sex roles - things you wouldn't think were re-
lated to decriminalization, but might be," John-
ston said.
RESEARCHERS will compare- levels of drug
use for states which have already decriminalized
marijuana before and after any drug laws
changed. States which have not yet decriminal-
ized marijuana use will serve as a control group
for comparison. Johnston said.
Thus far, the surveys have included about 20,000
high school seniors in 38 states'each year.

CAC fights for consumers

It happens to everybody.
You purchase an expensive pair of shoes at the neighborhood
shoe store. Two days later the heels fall off, but the store refuses
to issue a refund. You must be a careless walker, they say.
MONEY down the drain? Nope. The Consumer Action Center
(CAC) can step in to protect your rights.
"If I were to look down State Street and South University, for
example," said John Knapp, CAC director, "I could not objectively
say that all the shops are operated by unscrupulous merchants

merchant involved reside inside the county lines. Another stipula-
tion: an impasse between consumer and merchant must have al-
ready been reached.
Most cases are fairly routine, Knapp says, but he once re-
ceived a complaint that a pornographic magazine didn't meet the
expectations of- the subscriber. "It was not -your run-of-the-mill
case," Knapp confided.
Operating out of the Washtenaw County Bldg. at the corner
of Huron and Main Streets, the Center claims to return two dollars
to complainants for every dollar of its funding. It processed 700
cases last year, and Knapp says the CAC recovered $80,000 for
