Parent watch
Some University law students at the Child Advo-
cacy Clinic are searching for the parents of a baby
left on the shelf1of a North Campus laundry room
last November 20.' The students are the tempor-
ary legal guardians for the baby and are eager for
the child's parents to get in touch with them be-
fore Thursday, when the county Probate Court will
hold a hearing to decide whether parental rights
shall be terminated. The court has ordered that the
parents attend the hearing. If they do not, their
legal right to custody of the child will be jeopard-
ized. If you can supply any information or wish to
know more details, call the clinic at 763-5000.
Our belated best
Valentine's Day has come and it's gone
The flowers, the cards the candy (bon bon)
Have all been given in exchange for a kiss
And we at the Daily want to tell you this:
Sorry we're late with this Valentine's wish,
But as you know, on Monday's we don't publish.
Louis I. Bredvold
Louis I. Bredvold, former chairman of the Uni-
versity English department, and a professor here
from 1921 until his retirement in 1958, died Febru-
ary 10 in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 88.
Professor Bredvold was recognized as one of
the foremost scholars of 17th and 18th century En-
glish literature. The publication of his book, "The
'Milieu of John Dryden" in 1934 established his re-
putation as a scholar. He was named the Henry
Russel Lecturer in 1956, the highest honor the U-M
can bestow on its faulty members.
Bredvold was known as a bastion of "enlightened
conservatism." His dry wit was admired by all
who knew him, and. the story is told of the time
a famous physicist spoke in Ann Arbor. The pro-
fessor approached him after the speech and asked
sharply, "What is man?" The physicist hestiated
for a moment and replied, "A fortuitous concourse
of atoms." Bredvold shrugged and concluded, "So
was your speech."

Not only did New Yorkers have Valentines Day
to celebrate yesterday, but they had Hooker's Day,
New Yorkers for New York Day and Sadie Haw-

entine's celebration Playboy bunnies visited a
veterans hospital in the Bronx, a young woman
from Curacao greeted the public at the Carrib-
bean Carnival in a heart-shaped bikini and Monte

Rock III hosted a discotheque marathon. And in
a fitting salute to Sadie. Hawkins Day, elderly fe-
males in western-style kerchiefs chased male sen-
ior citizens in cowboy hats at a party in the He-
brew Hospital for the Chronic Sick. And for Hook-
er's Day the prostitutes are having a ball. "It's our
one affair where everybody lets go," said Helene
Gaillet, coordinator of the hookers' masquerade
ball. "We expect everything . . . We never sched--
ule entertainment at our parties. Our people are
the entertainment."

was postponed last month to allow Council's Republican and Demo-
cratic caucuses to submit approval or opposition to various seg-
ments.
DURING THE WORKING session which preceded the special
meeting, Council viewed plans for the city's new $2 million fire
station. Construction of the facility is slated to begin April 16.
Because of pre-arranged compromises, Council members did
not debate most of the segments of the CIB/CIP. Several other
compromises were also initiated during the meeting in order to
pass the resolution in its complete form.
Among the planned improvements are a foot/bicycle path for
Winewood Avenue to the downtown area, expansion of one of the
city's sewage treatment plants, and repair ofkthe Broadway bridge.

'U' GEARS UP FOR STRIKE:

AFSCME awaits final' offer'

By BOB ROSENBAUM
University negotiators will de-
liver their final economic pro-
posals at contract talks with the
American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employ-
es (AFSCME, Local 1583) today,
and both sides say the pioposal
will have to bridge a large gap
between them.
Meanwhile, dorms are formu-

CORNELL GROUP MAKES HIM OFFICIAL PICK:

lating contingency plans to keep
vital student services operating
in the event of a strike.
UNION OFFICIALS say they
are trying to adhere to an ori-
ginal negotiating deadline of
midnighttonight, even though
AFSCME rank and file gave the
negotiators the power to extend
the deadline indefinitely at a
mass meeting Sunday.
AFSCME representative Art
Anderson was tight-lipped on
whether the union will walk out
tomorrow, saying only that the
decision wil depend on how close
the union and the University are
in their final economic propos-
als.
Chief University negotiator
William Neff said last night that
the two teams "were able to re-'
solve a few quasi-economic mat-
ters, but on the wage-rate itself,

there has been little progress."
TODAY'S FINAL university
wage proposal "will be what we
feel is our best offer," Neff said.
"And if we put our best offer
forward, it's in their ball park
to decide how to handle it," he
said.
Union representatives present-
ed the University with alsecond
economic proposal Sunday night
which Neff today termed "way
out in outer space."
AFSCME MEMARS are be-
ing notified today that negotia-
ting teams "are still far apart
on wages, cost of living pay-
m e n t s, longevity payments,
Health Insurance anal classifica-
tions."
Anderson added that-depend-
ing on what happens in today's
negotiations-employes will be
told what actions to take before
noon tomorow.

Emory see]
By DAVID GOODMAN
In a phone poll yesterday, the Cornell Univer-
sity Presidential Search Committee voted unani-
mottsly to recommend Michigan's Frank Rhodes
for Cornell's top job.
Meanwhile, Vice-President Rhodes is among
four finalists for the presidency of Emory Uni-
versity in Atlanta, Ga., and is also under con-
sideration for high administrative posts at two
or more other colleges or universities.
THE CORNELL search group's decision fol-
lowed a unanimous vote of a faculty advisory
group in favor of Rhodes late last week. The
student-staff and alumni advisory committees had
earlier given Rhodes their enthusiastic backing.
Cornell's Board of Trustees meets tomorrow
afternoon in New York City. It -is unclear, how-
ever. whether the Boaard ill -M k h'dan

ks Rhodes
sources there see Rhodes' acceptance as a vir-
tual certainty based on the interest he has shown
in the post.
Emory University, which has 5,000 .students
at its Atlanta campus, began its presidential
search when current President Sanford Atwood
said last spring he planned to retire in 1977.
Emory's presidential search process is much
like Cornell's: student, faculty and alumni groups
are advising a nine-member Trustee Search Com-
mittee, which will recommend a candidate to the
Board of Trustees.
RHODES VISITED Emory last month and was
"well received," according to Austin Kiplinger,
head of Cornell's search group.
Rhodes confirmed his visit to Emory, adding,
"They've not made me a formal offer."
"Our committee has interviewed six people,"

University Housing Director
John Feldkamp disclosed last
night that each dormitory is
drawing up specific plans for
maintaining food and sanitary
services if AFSCME members
walk off their jobs.
IN SOME CASES, Feldkamp
said, resident staff may be com-
pellid by their supervisors to
take over the responsibilities of
another job: If the staff mem-
ber refuses to cross union picket
lines, he added, "their staff job
could be put in jeopardy."
Dorms will also by looking for
"supervisory staff and employes
who want to work" in positions
vacated by AFSCME members,

Several dorms contacted last
night said they. will be using
student "volunteers" who would
be paid regular temporary stu-

work they do. ,
ACCORDING TO one person,
some Hill area dorms were con-
sidering plans to use "manda-
tory" employment of resident
staff in food services operations,
but "there was so much flak
from building directors, the
housing office switched their de-
cision." Those dorms will now
ask for volunteers from their
staff; in the event of a strike.
