The big fifth
The University of Michigan is the nation's
fifth most successful school in graduating execu-
tives-to-be, according to a survey of 74,000 execu-
tives by Standard & Poor's Corp. Harvard leads
the list, as it did in 1974, and is followed, in
order, by New York University, Yale, and the
University of Pennsylvania. Fifth-ranked Michi-
gan, however,, turned out more executives than
Columbia, Northwestern and Princeton. The place-
ment officer at Harvard's undergraduate college,
Frank Fisher, said his office routes most stu-
dents into graduate school, but does not follow
their postgraduate careers. "Gosh, it's kind of
a different world out there," he said. That's what
they teach you at Harvard, we guess.
'I am not a crook'
If we didn't know otherwise, we'd suspect Don-
ald Segretti was up to his old tricks again-this
time in Warren, Mich. State Rep. Dennis Dutko
has been pegged a criminal in campaign litera-
ture published by his opponent, Warren O'Brien,
in what the ncumbent says is "one of the dirtiest
campaigns the city of Warren has ever seen."
Dutko, who was defeated in the last election, is
urging 25th District voters to "send a lawmaker
to Lansing, not a lawbreaker." The literature is
printed over reproductions of newspaper stories
about traffic violations Dutko was charged with
last summer - careless driving and reckless driv-
ing. "He's slinging mud," says Dutko. "We ex-
pected him to do a good deal of crying about
this," counters O'Brien, "but I think it's unfair
for him to endanger the lives of motorists with,
his reckless driving." -

Former White House aide John Dean concluded
while in prison that "Deep Throat" - Bob Wood-

source in countless Watergate stories-was Nixon
speechwriter David Gergen. According to The
New York Post, Dean arrived at his conclusion
after talking with former White House friends
and long personaf deliberation. The newspaper
said Dean declined to name Dean in his new
book, "Blind Ambition," because he was not
absolutely sure. Gergen issued a typically Water-
gatist non-denial denial: "There is not a scintilla
of evidence that I had, or was /in a position to

wooden chair mounted on the trunk. Nobody was
sitting in it. Campaign Manager Gravy told the
crowd of 200 supporters that Nobody would ad-

tions. And the bizarre candidate may very well

Authorities confirmed yesterday they are investi-

woman found shot to death in the Arb two weeks ago
might have bought a contract on her life.
Sources have speculated to officials that Jeannine
Boukai hired Ricky Wayne Wilson, her suspected as-
sailant, to kill her. It has already been confirmed
that the woman took out a life insurance policy and
withdrew money from a local bank shortly before

this stuff under investigation, but the first thing is
to apprehend him (Wilson) on a flight warrant and
bring him back to trial."

Postill indicated the impossibility for authorities
to substantiate whether contract murder was the case,
but said such motives would be scrutinized at a
Sheriff's Detective Harold Kerr, who is investigat-
ing the murder, called the theories "far-fetched."
"I DON'T PUT MUCH STOCK in it myself," he
said. Kerr, noting that Boukai's handbag and wallet
have not yet have recovered, believes robbery is a
likely motive.
The victim's father, Carey Boukai, called the con-
tract murder speculation "preposterous," and added
that a telephone conversation with his daughter the
week she died uncovered nothing unusual.
And a resident of Stevens Co-operative, where
Boukai lived since the beginning of the term called
the rumors "speculation."

BOUKAI WAS FOUND by a passing jogger the

According to an FBI agent connected with the

President Ford had the cam-

Carrying familiar themes to
new platforms in half a dozen

cities, Ford treated his audi-
ences to a catalogue of what he
called Carter's contradiction on
tax and economic issues.
HE PICKED a financially dis-
tressed city with a Republican
mayor - Yonkers, N.Y. - in
which to sign the 45-month re 7-

provide states and cities with
$25.5 billion.
In Plains, Ga., Carter was
keeping a promise to devote two
days to his family rather than
to his campaign. He plans a
trio to New York state today
which would give him extensive
exposuzre in some of the same
media markets that Ford' hit
yesterday and today.
In another development, fi-
nanceareports filed with the
Federal Election Commission
showed Ford had twice as much
campaign money left to spend
in the last five weeks before the
election as Carter.
THROUGH Sept. 30, Ford had
spent only $3.5 million of the
$21.8 million allotted to each
candidate under federal law.
Carter had spent $12.5 million.
The difference may have re-
sulted from Carter's almost con-
stant travel during September,
which Ford spent mostly at the
White House. But k.e reports do
not show whether Carter may
have already spentmoney for

More swine flu clinics were shut down temporarily

no evidence that the program should be curtailed in any
way" and some officials reopened closed inoculation
Health officials stressed there was no known con-

and 12 deaths reported in seven states.
A THIRD MICHIGAN death, possibly related to the
swine flu vaccine, was made public yesterday several
hours after the State Health Department halted swine
flu innoculations in Michigan. Two other deaths, now
believed unrelated, were report-

Board of Regents from a slate of four names
submitted by a special search committee formed
in March.
"I THINK WE had some extremely fine peo-
ple right up to the last minute," said Regent Da-
vid Laro (R-Flint). "But most of us just felt
more comfortable with Brinkeroff. He's worked
here before, and there were a great many peo-

ple who came forward with fine things to say
about him."
The 53-year-old Brinkerhoff began has career

the next nine years he rose to director of busi-
ness operations, and was named associate vice

Special to The Daily
LANSING - Nearly 600 state
college and university students
- only a handful of whom were
from the University - rallied
on the steps of the State Capital
yesterday in protest of increas-
ed tuition costs and what they
termed the declining quality of
higher education.
The rally, which was coordin-
ated by the Michigan Students
Associated for Lower Tuition-

er Education Student Associa-
tion (MHESA), coincided with
yesterday's state-wide class boy-
cott in protest of spiraling tuit-
