Presidential visit
President Ford will meet with 20 hand-picked
students for a question and answer session Wed-
nesday afternoon at Crisler Arena, prior to his
7 p.m. speech there, it was announced yester-
day. A White House spokesperson said the lucky
group is to be selected by Michigan Student As-
sembly President Calvin Luker. Luker could not
be reached for comment last night.
Join us!
The Daily needs you, and this week we're giving
you not one, not two, but four (count 'em) chances
to get acquainted with us and learn just how we
go about publishing a newspaper six days a week.
We'll have representatives from both the news,
business and sports staffs at several dorm locations
on Tuesday and Thursday; pick the meeting which
is most convenient to you and drop by (you don't
have to live in that dorm, of course). Tuesday at
7:30 p.m., we'll be speaking at the West Lounge of
South Quad, and in East Quad, in Rm. 24 in the
basement of Tyler House. Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
you can check us out at Bursley in the East Lounge
and at Markley in the Angela Davis Lounge. See
you there.
Scouts out
Bo, the team, the cheerleaders, the cops and
the sports writers were all back at home in Michi-
gan Stadium yesterday for the game, but for
the first time in 52 years, the Ann Arbor Boy
Scouts missed the show. The greenshirts had al-
ways been admitted free in exchange for their
services as ushers, but Athletic Dire'r Don Can-
ham this summer informed local scout leaders
that the boys would have to shell out a few bucks
for tickets like everyone else if they wanted to
see the games this year. With more and more
sellout games each season, the scouts often ended
up in the aisles without seats, and Canham said
some of the youngsters have been-well, verbally
abused in the past. "This is something that is
beyond our control," Canham said. Probably.

Knight flight
Pennsylvania Gov. Milton Shapp, who braved a
night and a meal at Philadelphia's Bellevue-
Stratford Hotel to assuage tourists' fears of the
mysterious "Legionnaires' Disease", has blasted
the Knight-Ridder newspaper group for cancel-
ling their scheduled meeting at the hotel. In a
telegram Friday to executives at the chain's
Miami headquarters, Shapp said "perhaps some
businesses in Philadelphia may respond by can-
celling advertisements in your newspapers to
show their displeasure." A 15-member executive
board for the chain, which owns two Philadelphia
papers, The Detroit Free Press and over two
dozen other newspapers across the country, had
planned a meeting at the Bellevue for Sept. 24 but
switched to another building because of "uncer-
tainty" over the hotel's safety.

Smallpox nevermore
World Health Organization officials said yester-
day that the disfiguring, blinding, killing disease
called smallpox is about to be wiped from the
earth. The Organization told the Center for Dis-
ease Control in Atlanta that no new cases have
been reported anywhere in the world for over a
month - a clear sign of the imminent conquest of
'the disease, according to officials.

NEW YORK-The "Fighters for Free Croatia" who skyjacked
a New York-to-Chicago jetliner Friday passed through one of the
nation's most sophisticated airport security systems before
boarding the plane.
But one of the Croatian nationalists who walked through the
elaborate security area at New York's La Guardia Airport and
boarded the Trans World Airlines jet reportedly was wired as a
human bomb that could be detonated at the press of a button.
