Join the Daily!
For any and all of you who wish to write news
stories, sports, editorials, magazine , features, or
arts page reviews, tonight is the night to start.
There will be a Daily mass meeting for new peo-
ple at 7:30 tonight on the second floor of the Stu-
dent Publications Building, 420 Maynard, behind
the LSA building. Bring your friends.
Custody granted
Kathy Bodary, the 25-year-old Ypsilanti mother
allegedly assaulted by her former husband last
week before he abducted their two young boys,
received permanent custody of the children yester-
day. Judge Ross Campbell awarded Bodary custody
following three years of legal battles with Robert
Irvine, Bodary's former husband. Bodary says
Irvine, a former Ann Arbor policeman, abducted
Andrew, 5, and Alexander, 6, Sept. 2 for the third
time since 1972. Ypsilanti police, who are conduct-
a state wide search for Irvine on charges of
felonious assault, believe him headed for Arlington,
Texas where his second wife lives with their child.

More coming
It looks like a record breaking year for Michi-
gan Stadium attendance. The 28,000 Michigan stu-
dent season tickets ran out at 2:30 yesterday after-
noon near the end of the first-year priority group.
Al Renfrew, ticket manager, reports that 2,000
more sets are on their way and will be available
Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in the Athletic Administra-
tion Building lobby. This year 3,500 more student
and six to seven thousand more regular tickets
have been sold than last year. However, two prob-
lems arise with the incoming tickets. Individual
tickets for the Ohio State game have already been
sold in some student sections and on Band Day,
some high school bands will have to be removed.
Happenings ...
Are picking up today. The Human Rights
Party (HRP) is holding a mass meeting at 7:30
tonight on the fourth floor of the Michigan Union.
The agenda consists of electing a new party co-
ordinator and a steering committee, a discussion
of the HRP petition drive for public ownership of
utilities and the direction of the party . . . A Tae
Kwon Do (Korean Karate) demonstration will be
held at Barbour Gym at 7 p. m. . . . An open
meeting of "Students for Harris," a committee or-
ganizing campus support for Senator Fred Harris
of Oklahoma for the Democratic nomination for
president will be held at 7:30 tonight in 4303 of the
Michigan Union . - . and a dramatic workshop en-
titled "Why Men's Lib?" will be held at 7:30 p.m.
in East Quad, Room 4, Tyler House.
Progress?
In the beginning there was the roll-on deodor-
ant, then the spray-on. Now Chemist Tyrone Vigo
is looking for the zip-up deodorant. Vigo and other
scientists at the U. S. Agriculture Department's
southern Regional Research Center are trying to
develop cotton clothing with a built-in deodorant.
"We're talking about shorts, possibly tee shirts,
socks, thing like that," Viga explained. But there
are some problems. One is how long the deodorant
drawers would keep their guard up. Vigo's goal is
to find a treatment that will stand up to 50 laun-
derings. It is also necessary to prevent skin irri-
tation, itching and other miseries and to decide
how tightly the garments should fit. Progress
marches on.
Calley
William "Rusty" Calley Jr., the man who
brought America the true meaning of the word
Nuremburg, had his Army court-martial convic-
tion for the My Lai bloodbath reinstated by a fed-
eral appeals court yesterday. Calley's lawyers,
who say they'll appeal the ruling, contended that
pretrial publicity made jurors too biased. The ap-
peals court disagreed, but Rusty will remain free
on bail and the Army has said that even if Calley
lost the appeal he would immediately be paroled.

"It would seem cruel and inhuman to confine him
again," one of Calley's lawyers said. Cruel and
inhuman .. we've heard those words before;
we're not quite sure where.
Dope note
You may not always get what you planned on,
as Mr. and Mrs. Cheraka discovered this summer.
They thought they bought 13 tomato plants from a
mail order firm that advertised the plants would
grow 20 feet high. Mrs. Sheraka said that she
watched a television program showing plants
which looked exgctly like her innocent tomato
plants in the back yard. She checked, and sure
eno'ieh, they had been growing one tomato plant
and 12 marijuana plants. Some people have all the
luck.

dismissal

"I'm putting my career on the line if I lose this
case," Karina Niemeyer quietly explained. "There is
a certain stigma attached to people who litigate against
their employers, and I have heard it is very easy to
blacklist people," she added.
Niemeyer is suing the University for reinstatement
to her post as assistant professor of French, a job
she held for eight years, until the spring of 1974.
Niemeyer claims the University has violated a
committment to provide her with tenure, a form of job
security unique to the academic world which, when
acquired, makes dismissal possible only under extra-
ordinary circumstances.
FOR NEARLY 16 months Niemeyer, jobless and liv-
ing from savings and unemployment checks, has
struggled to continue a career which she and some of
her colleagues feel has been unjustly disrupted.
Niemeyer's basis for claiming tenure is two-fold.
sustains

Sues 'U' on tenure ruling

In February, 1970, she received a letter from then-
Romance Languages Chairman James O'Neill stating
that she "appeared to have de facto tenure."
The tenure, according to the letter, was contingent
upon the LSA's acceptance of the American Associa-
tion of University Professors (AAUP) guidelines re-
garding tenure. The rules counted experience at other
institutions toward the acquisition of tenure at the
University.
THE LETTER, which Niemeyer considered "a solid
committment from the University," was the end-pro-
duct of a muddled and confused series of communica-
tions between then-LSA Dean William Hays, Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Allan Smith, Associate Dean

Hayden Carruth, and Chairman O'Neill.
A faculty support committee formed on behalf of
Niemeyer reported that Hays issued an October, 1969
directive announcing that AAUP tenure guidelines
were to be followed. Carruth contacted O'Neill two
months later advising him that Niemeyer had de facto
tenure.
Carruth said yesterday he has no record of such a
letter in his files. He added that Hays' guidelines could
not possibly have been binding.
"I think that some people got a hold of it and lunged
at it like it was the law of the land," said Carruth.
THE SUPPORT committee's report also claims that
Smith informed Hays his directives conflicted with

(Reuter) - Congress failed
yesterday to override a veto
by President Ford of a bill
to revive price controls on
most domestic oil for six
months - despite warn-
ings from the Democratic
majority it could cost an
American family an extra ;
$600 a year.
The President hailed his
victory as a signal to for-
eign oil producers that the ,
United States was starting;

pendence and held out
hope he and Congress could
compromise on the issue of
controls.
FORD HAS said he would ac-
cept a 45-day extension of the
controls to allow time to seek
a compromise. But when Con-
gress upheld the veto he ask-
ed for legislation to ease the
transition to no controls in case
a compromise was not reached.
The Senate voted 61-39 to ov-
erride the veto, but this was six
short of the necessary two-

Education bill passes
over President's veto

WASHINGTON (MP-The Sen-
ate overrode President Ford's
veto of the $7.9 billion education
.appropriations bill yesterday,
enacting it into law.
It was the second Ford veto
to be overturned this session out
of 10 which he has submitted.
The vote was 88 to 12, twenty-
one votes more than the two-
thirds necessary to override.
THE SENATE vote came just
an hour after it supported Ford's
veto of an energy decontrol bill,
the fifth time that has happen-
ed.
Three other vetoes were left
standing by congressional in-
action.
The education measure was
the first fiscal 1976 appropria-
tions bill to be vetoed by the
President.
THE BILL exceeded by $1.5
billion Ford's budget recommen-
dation for educational expendi-
tires this fiscal year. However,
much of the money authorized in
the bill would be spent in future
years.
The newly-created Congres-
sional budget committees esti-
mated that the actual spending
in the current fiscal year re-
sulting from the bill would be
$400 million more than the Pres-
ident proposed.
THEY SAID that this increase
was $500 million less than Con-

gress had invisaged for educa-
7ion in adopting its own fiscal
1976 budget plan in May.
In this budget the legislators
proposed increases above Ford's
recommendations for education,
health and other social pro-
grams, but vowed to make up
these by cuts mostly in military
and foreign aid spending.
The President in vetoing the
education bill said the outcome
would offer a test of Congres-
sional willingness to accept fis-
cal discipline.
THE TOTAL in the bill con-
tinued "the trend over the past
several years-a little more for
every program," he said.
Sen. Edward Brooke (R-
Mass), urging his colleagues to
override the veto, declared the
President submitted education
budget figures "that were not
realistic and not adequate, par-
ticularly in this period of high
unemployment and high prices."
"For the poor and handi-
capped,, a good education can
mean avoiding a lifetime of de-
pendence on others," Brooke
said.
The $7.9 billion measure con-
tains $414 million more than
Ford proposed for aid to school
districts with large numbers of
children of federal employes,
and $368 million more for col-
lege student aid than he recom-
mended.

thirds majority needed. Its
failure ended further congres-
sional action on the legislation.
Seven Democrats crossed
party lines to join 32 members
of Ford's Republican party in
voting to uphold the veto. An
equal number of Republicans
voted against the President.
THE SENATE decision gave
the president a boost in his con-
tinuing battle with Congress
over energy policy and increas-
ed the pressure on Congress to
come up with a plan suitable to
him. He wants controls phased
out over 39 months.
Several members of the Sen-
ate and House of Representa-
tives said they planned to push
for a 45-day extension of the
price controls, which are on oil
from wells drilled since 1973.
This so-called "old" oil ac-
counts for 60 per cent of U. S.
output.
The controls lapsed on August
31 but domestic oil producers
have held off increases pend-
ing the outcome of the struggle
between the President and
Congress.
AFTER THE Senate vote, the
President sent billsto Congress
to ease the transition to de-
control if no compromise is
reached and to lighten the short-
age of natural gas expected
this winter in the eastern Unit-
ed States.
At a briefing later, Federal
E n e r g y Administrator
Frank Zarb said if a compro-
mise could not be worked out,
the President would remove his
two dollar a barrel fee on im-
ported oil.
Zarb said he thought chances
for a compromise were better
now.
HE ADDED that he did not
think gas prices would increase
at all over the next few weeks
and would only go up about
three cents a gallon during the
next several months.
Before the vote, Senate Dem-
ocrats said oil companies would
reap staggering profits and con-
sumers would be hit with big
increases in their fuel bills if
oil companies are free of gov-
ernment price regulations.
Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-
Wis") charged that Ford's plan
for a free pricing policy was a
"prescription for disaster" that

MANSON INVOLVED?

Panel indil
By AP and Reuter
SACRAMENTO, Cal. - Lynette "Squeaky"
Fromme, a follower of murder gang leader
Charles Manson, was formally charged by a
grand jury yesterday with the attempted assas-
sination of President Ford last Friday.
The charge carries a mandatory sentence of
life imprisonment.
GOVERNMENT Prosecutor Dwayne Keyes re-
fused to tell reporters whether more indictments
would follow, claiming this would violate the se-
crecy of the grand jury proceedings.
Immediately after the incident, there was spec-
ulation that Fromme acted on orders from Man-
son, who after his conviction for master-minding
the murder of actress Sharon Tate and six others
in 1969 is being held in San Quentin Prison.
One witness, who asked not to be identified,
said he and other witnesses sat in an anteroom
of the courthouse, talking about the assassination
12 years ago of President Kennedy.
"WE ALL thought about none of the witnesses

of that shooting are alive today," he said.
Fromme's trial is expected to start in 60 days.
Daye Shinn, a Manson trial attorney who visited
Fromme yesterday, said she told him she never
intended to kill Ford.
"WHAT ARE they mad about? The gun didn't
go off," he quoted her as saying.
Shinn said Fromme told him she only was
seeking attention for Manson and three women
followers who she said were unjustly convicted
of the ritualistic 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders in
Los Angeles.
"I wasn't going to shoot him. I just wanted to
get some attention for a new trial for Charlie and
the girls," Shinn quoted Fromme as saying in
their jail interview.
FROMME HAD no known source of income.
Miss Good 'said they got money from friends.
One witness was Harold Boro, a 66-year-old
grandfather who reportedly befriended Fromme
and owned the gun seized by the Secret Service.
