Medical malfunction
All is apparently not well over the University
Medical Center where state Department of Labor
Investigators have uncovered 15 minor violations
of Michigan's Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The center was cited for allegedly failing to pro-
vide required safety guards on power machines
operated by employes in the refrigerator repair,
maintenance, service and wood shops and on
a loading dock. Other violations include, allegedly
failing to install proper safety guards on exhaust,
ventilation and personnel fans in the refrigerator
repair and wood shops, and in the third floor phar-
macy storage area. Though hardly the stuff scan-
dals are made of, the big 'U' will have to pay for
its indiscretions. Unless, University officials file an
appeal within 15 days, The University will have to
fork over a total of $84 in fines.

Price fixing
Police arrested a Muscatine, Iowa man Sunday
who allegedly pulled a knife on a prostitute after
she kept raising the price for her services. The
suspect, Richard Yeater, told police the woman
first offered herself at a downtown hotel for $30,
then raised the price to $40 and finally demanded
$60. Police said the man pulled a knife and took
the money back. But the woman phoned authori-
ties and complained of armed robbery. Police ar-
rested Yeater, and charged him with armed rob-
bery and soliciting. They also arrested Marian
Jones and charged her with prostitution.
Affairs of state
President Ford says that unlike his wife, he
would be surprised if his 19-year-old daughter Sus-
an had an affair. "I'd protest in a most vigorous
way, and I'd counsel her. But I don't think that
would happen - not the way Susan was brought
up," the President said in an interview in the
October issue of Ladies' Home Journal. Last
year the first lady caused an uproar when she
said that she "wouldn't be surprised" if Susan
told her she was having an affair. The President
added that if there is anyone Susan seems to be
showing the slightest sign of being serious about,
"I want to know all about him and his family."

Holyin oly
The dried blood of Naples' patron saint liquified
on schedule Sunday, putting off calamity at least
until Dec. 16. About 10,000 Neopolitans jammed in
and around the port city's cathedral applauding
and setting off fireworks in celebration, crying "St.
Januarius has done a miracle." If the congealed
blood of the 4th century martyr St. Januarius San
Gennaro, contained in two glass vials, fails to
liquify on three days each year, Neopolitans be-
lieve disaster threatens. The blood failed to liquify
last May during the period Northeast Italy was
devastated by earthquakes. Church records show
that the blood failed to liquify in 1527 and 1528
when plague hit the city and in 1835 when Naples
was struck by cholera. The blood is supposed to
liquify the first Saturday of May, the Saint's feast
day Sept. 19 and Dec. 16.

Kissinger hopes for
OK by weekend
LUSAKE, Zambia (AP)-Henry Kissinger told Presi-
dent Kenneth Kaunda yesterday he expects Rhodesia's
white rulers to clear the way by this weekend for talks
leading to rule by the black majority, an African dip-
lomat reported.
The diplomat said the secretary of state also raised
several questions with Kaunda relating to the substance
of a final settlement. He reportedly did so at the re-
quest of Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith with whom
Kissinger conferred Sunday in Pretoria, South Africa.
Kaunda's clarifications will be transmitted to Smith through
South African Prime Minister John Vorster, said the diplomat.
He did not disclose details of the questions.
Smith, who flew home to Salisbury after the meeting in
Pretoria, told a broadcast interviewer "concrete results" had
come out of the session with Kissinger and that there was a

chance of a settlement "in the
near future" between Rho-
desia's 270,000 whites and its
5.7 million blacks.
Vorster, too, said a Rhodesian
settlement could result and said
there had also been progress
on the issue of South-West Af-
rica, or Namibia, the territory
the United Nations demands
that South Africa give up.
KAIJNDA WAS pressed by

By The Associated Press
President Ford kept up the
Republican drumfire against
Jimmy Carter's views on tax
reform declaring yesterday that
middle-income taxpayers ought
to get tax cuts.
Carter rode an old-fashioned
whistle-stop campaign train in
the industrial Northeast and
said high unemployment rates
and budget deficits are what
ought to be cut.
WITH BOTH vice presidential
candidates chiming in, however,
the topic of the moment was tax
policy as Ford and Carter mov-
ed toward final preparations
for their first debate Thursday.
"Our middle - income tax-
payers have been short-changed



in the last 10 years," Ford said.
"I believe that this group ought
to get additional tax relief."
In obvious criticism of Car-
ter, Ford told a farm credit
group in the White House Rose
Garden that "those who advo-
cate additional expenditures
have now suggested there
should be an additional levy on
middle - income people - rep-
resenting about SO per cent of

day care
After a long and caustic dis-
cussion, City Council Republi-
cans last night forced passage
of an ordinance which would
severely restrict the introduc-
tion of child day care center
into residential neighborhoods.
But there is a strong likeli-
hood the measure will be stop-
ped dead by a veto from Demo-
cratic Mayor AlbertrWheeler.
COUNCIL also unanimously
approved an ordinance bringing
student co - operatives sunder
the jurisdiction of the city's
Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).
Fraternities and sororities al-
ready require ZBA approval.
The day care center ordinance
does much the same thing with
regard to child day care cen-
ters. Under its provisions, per-
sons wishing to start a day care
center would have to select a
site which conforms to certain
rigid specifications and submit
a request to the ZBA. The
Zoning Board would be allowed
to use innit from neighbors of
the intended site - in addition
to the specific specifications -
in makine its decision.
Mayor Wheeler, who said he
had heard no complaints from
citizens about day care centers,
asked the sponsor of the ordi-
nince - Council member Roger
Bertoia (R-Third Ward) - what
his reasons were for suggesting
"I DON'T see what's so
strange and terrible about the
sound of children under five
years of age," Wheeler said.
Council member Robert Hen-
ry (R-Third Ward) responded
angrily that his fellow Repub-
licans had meant nothing
against either children or day
care centers.
"But," he added, "day care
centers have a responsibility to
get along in the neighborhoods
on which they're imposed."
Councilman Earl Greene (D-
Second Ward) reminded Henry
that the mayor's question had
gone unanswered. How many
complaints had been received

Riegle, Esch clash at Cobo

themes of the candidates for
Philip Hart's soon-to-be-vacant
Senate seat contrasted sharply
last night as Congressmen Don-

conference and debate spon-
sored by the Detroit Economic
Club at Cobo Hall.
Time after time, Esch de-
manded that Riegle talk about
his record in Congress, calling
Riegle "a problem-citer, a talk-
er, a noisemaker," while refer-
ring to himself as "a problem-
solver, a doer, a lawmaker."
Riegle, meanwhile, billed him-
self as a new type of leader

of mind and a willingness to

AT THE JOINT press confer-
