Althea Higson's home, he dropped the wedding
cake on her front lawn. But his biggest mistake
came in the shouting match that followed, when
he dropped Althea's mother with a quick right
cross to the jaw. Althea promptly dropped him.
She said saidthe wedding was offhand she never
wanted to see Roy again. "If he had hit me in-
stead of my mother, I probably would have mar-
ried him all the same," Althea muttered, "but
I'm not having any man hitting my mum."

Effective Reading Systems, Inc., the speed
reading company currently recruiting students
here to enroll in its classes, may be slapped
with a lawsuit by Evelyn Wood Reading Dynam-
ics.
Lani Sussman, director of group sales for
Evelyn Wood in Michigan, said the suit is be-
ing filed because Effective Reading's advertis-
ing "is practically identical" to Evelyn Wood's.
"AND THEIR SUPPLIES are identical," said
Sussman.
Sussman added that only one of Effective
Reading's employes ever taught for Evelyn

one of Effective Reading's attorneys.

majority rule

Crowd to rate.
the candidates
By JIM TOBIN
A new development in the Michigan Band-Communist Par-
ty saga emerged yesterday with the announcement that this
Saturday's band performance will include an "applause meter"
rating of crowd support for Communist Party presidential can-
didate Gus Hall.
Not only Hall will be rated by crowd applause, but Presi-
dent Ford and Jimmy Carter as well. After the band performs
a series of skits and songs focusing on the presidential elec-
tion, a group of band members will form an applause meter.
When the crowd cheers for each candidate, the drum major
will direct the "meter needle" to move accordingly.

Cabinet

today
By AP and Reuter
SALISBURY, Rhodesia - Sec-
retary of State Henry Kissinger
was reported yesterday to be
carrying the word to black Afri-
can leaders that Prime Minister
Ian Smith has accepted the prin-
ciple of rule by Rhodesia's black
majority within 18 months to two
years.
Smith spent 31 hours outlining
to his cabinet the proposals of-
fered to him at his Sunday meet-
ing with Kissinger. Smith said
the cabinet would study the plan
before deciding on its position
today.
"I HAVE suggested we sleep
on it, even dream about it, and
come back tomorrow and have
a clearer concept," Smith said
after the meeting. "That's all
that matters. We are dealing
with the lives of people.
"You cannot accept big pro-
posals in a rush. We are going
to take our time."
He added that the final de-
cision to accept or reject would
emerge after a scheduled brief-
ing tomorrow of the Rhodesian
Front parliamentary caucus-50
members of the 66-member par-
liament.
BESIDES A commitment to
black majority rule within two
years, the British-American plan
put before Smith calls for a
constitutional conference in Ge-
neva; the broadening of the
Rhodesian cabinet to include
black nationalists, and a $2-bil-
lion fund financed by the United
States, Britain, South Africa and
other nations to compensate
whites who leave Rhodesia and

MSA
support
GEO
By LANI JORDAN
With a strike deadline only
two weeks away, the Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA) last
night unanimously approved a
resolution to support the de-
mands of the Graduate Em-
ployes Organization (GEO) and
to urge all students, faculty
and administrators to comply
with the GEO to bring about
"better relations and further
educational quality."
MSA Vice-president Amy
Blumenthal also stated that the
MSA would support any peti-
tions circulated on campus to
have these demands met.
MSA opened its meeting last
night with a heated discussion
on the influence of Title IX in
the annointment of a man or a
woman to an opening on the
Board in Control of Intercolle-
giate Athletics.
Title IX refers to a series of
guidelines set forth by the De-
partment of Health Education

formance, Band Director
George Cavender said last
night, "We just thought we'd
have a little fun with it. We're
not ridiculing anybody. We just
want to see where the meter
reads."
Cavender said the election
theme was conceived last
spring, and that the idea has
been used by the band in other
presidential election years. He
said the Hall addition was made
in the past week.
This weekend will culminate
a series of events which have
thrown Cavender and the band
into a controversial light. The
band's performance for Presi-
dent Ford's campus appearance
last week generated a suit by
the Young Workers Liberation
League. The suit, filed by
League attorney Alan Kaufman,
seeks to compel 25-30 members
of the band to play for Hall's
apnearance at Hill Auditorium
this Friday evening.
YESTERDAY the League
charged the University with
"blatant inconsistency in its
various statements trying to jus-
tify why it provided services
for Gerald Ford while denying
the same services to Gus Hall."
Kaufman last week filed a
"motion for immediate consid-
eration," along with the suit, to
the Michigan Court of Appeals.
Such a motion is made when ac-
tion on the suit must be taken
before a definite date. The court

WATERGATE PROSECUTOR INVESTIGATES:
Ford campaign records
placed under subpoena

By AP and Reuter
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-The
Watergate special - prosecutor
Charles Ruff, has subpoenaed
records of Republican commit-
tees in President Ford's home-
town and of a maritime union
that made the largest single
contribution to Ford's 1972 con-
gressional campaign.
Officials of the Kent County
GOP said yesterday that records
of two county Republican com-
mittees going back to 1964 were
subpoenaed last month, just after
Ford won the GOP nomination,
and had been checked by FBI
agents acting for the special
prosecutor's office.
MEANWHILE, Justice De-
partment sources in Washington
said campaign contribution rec-
ords of the Marine Engineers
Beneficial Association dating
back to 1964 alsochad been sub-
poenaed. Records indicate the
maritime union contributed $7,-
500 to Ford's 1972 campaign,

the largest single contribution
his campaign collected.
At the White House, Press
Secretary Ron Nessen said: "We
don't know anything that the
special prosecutor or the Justice
Department is dci'g" in the
matter.
"I see no evidence that I'm
aware of that the President is
under investigation," Nessen
said. "Nobody has said he is."
A SPOKESMAN for Ford's
presidential campaign commit-
tee said none of its records had
been subpoenaed.
The subpoenas were first re-
ported yesterday by the Wall
Street Journal. Jesse Calhoon,
president of the marine union,
said that disclosure of what was
involved in the investigation
would "put me right in the
middleof thernational election,"
the Journal reported.
Calhoon could not be reached
yesterday for further comment.

Quick settlement in

From Wire Service Reports
DETROIT - A quick end to the nationwide strike against Ford
Motor Co. is unlikely, but a source involved in the negotiations
said yesterday that some compromise on key issues should come
this week.
The source said neither side has altered its official stand on
any of several issues which triggered a strike by 170,000 workers
in 22 states at 12:01 a.m., Sept. 15. But both sides have indicated
they are "more open" to compromise, the source said after the
two sides recessed for lunch after a two-hour morning bargain-

ing session.

Prohibition candidate Bubar
preaches moral government
By GEORGE LOBSENZ
Another presidential candidate rolled into town earlier this
week, though few people may have noticed. There were no big-wig
airport receptions, no serenading marching band, and no demon-
strations. With little fanfare Benjamin Bubar, standard-bearer for
the Prohibition party, had arrived.
Bubar, a genial garrulous native of Maine, has quietly pressed

"IT WILL take many, many
days for the pieces to fall into
place," the source said. "There
should be some major move-
ment on disputed issues within
the next couple of days, but
we're still far from a settle-
ment."

said yesterday it was calling
out on strike 1500 workers of
