Football traffic
There's more to a home football game than 11
big Wolverines rushing to carry a pigskin into
the end zone. First, you've got to get about 90,000
fans into the stadium, and that may not be easy
this Saturday. Construction on the Saline Rd.
bridge over 1-94 near Briarwood has been held
up by heavy rains. That entry-exit route is prob-
ably the city's most vital for game traffic coming
and going. A police department traffic spokesman
said the brdge would handle about 65-70 per cent of
the 90,000 spectators expected at Saturday's game.
However, he said the highway department assured
police yesterday that construction will be com-
pleted in time for the game. Want to place bets?
T hat's politics.
The controversial city law that permitted Rich-
bedreplaced by Fhrank Shoic htsi lastyApril's gen-
eral election was repealed by City Council Monday.
The law provided that a candidate could be re-
placed by another party member with consent of
the person beng replaced. After. Shoichet lost to
Ankli in the HRP primary by only four votes,
Shoichet charged Democrats with engineering the
vote against him. The law was then passed by
Council allowing Shoichet, to replace Ankli in the
general election. But the last laugh was on the
HRP as Shoichet lost overwhelmingly to Democrat
Carol Jones. So much for politics.
No hone ymoon
Dennis O'Brien has been trying to take a honey-
moon since June. But it's hard to visit romantic
places with your new spouse when you're locked
up in the county jail. O'Brien, 19, of Ann Arbor,
was married in June to Molly Vincent. At the time,
he was in jail awaiting trial on an armed robbery
charge. Unable to post the $20,000 bond, the sus-
pect was returned to his jail cell after the wedding
and he's been in jail since then. O'Brien this week
entered a guilty plea and sentencing is set for Oct.
3. Meanwhile O'Brien sits in the county jail. Con-
victon for armed robbery can bring a prison term
of one year to life.
Council squares
Square dancing's been temporarily canned in
Ypsilanti. The town was all set for some lively
swinging Friday night until City Council sounded
a bad call. The Depot Town Association and the
Ypsilanti Free Concerts Committee thought the
shindig rated at least a major street for its dance
floor. But some City Council members suggested
the dance be held elsewhere - in a city-owned
parking lot. The Association got fed up wth City
Council and called the whole thing off.
Happenings . . .
...are miserably slim today. At 4 p.m. the
philosophy dept. will elect representatives to the
executive 'committee in the Angell Hall commons
rm. and all divorced or separated students are in-
vited to an open meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the lounge
of the Wesley Foundation, First United Methodist
Some friend!
Martin Butel believes in playing it safe. But, the
34-year-old law clerk from Los Angeles may have
lost a good friend with his latest display of caution.
When Butel found a strange briefcase in his car,
he drove to the Hollywood police station and asked

officers there to open it. But they refused. This
is a job for the bomb squad, they said. So, the
experts were called and the area was sealed off
for a block in all directions. Slowly, the squad
opened the case. Inside were . . . two plastic bags
of marijuana and some papers indicating the case
was owned by a good friend of Butel's. Investiga-
tors said they will seek a complaint against the
friend for possession of the weed.

'U'to ask $

million budget slash

New belt-tightening measures designed
to cut nearly $1 million from this year's
operating 'budget will be presented to the
Board of Regents tomorrow, University
officials confirmed yesterday.
The proposal will call for an across-
the-board "enforced savings"' of approxi-
mately one per cent for all schools,
colleges and non-academic units, accord-
ing to Richard Kennedy, University vice
president for state relations.
.FUNDING for utilities and financial
aid, he added, will be excluded from this
latest cut. The University's utilities bud-
get has already experienced significant
cutbacks this year, while financial aid

monies will continue to be "consistently
excluded" from budget reductions, ac-
cording to Kennedy.
The cut is necessitated by an eleventh
hour trim in the University's state ap-
propriation by the legislature last month.
It left administrators here $1.6 million
short of a tentative $109.8 million operat-
ing budget' approved by the Regents at
their July meeting.
Kennedy said the remaining $600,000
in sthe deficit could be made up from
accumulations in unpaid salaries.
THE UNIVERSITY'S fiscal situation
may deteriorate further if Governor
William Milliken follows through with his

intention to cut upwards of an additional
one per cent from the state's higher
education budget.
Kennedy conceded that the University
would then be forced into "a different
mode" of 'cost reduction, meaning pos-
sible layoffs, program cutbacks, another
tuition hike, or all three.
"Given no new sources of revenue,"
said Kennedy, the short term prospects
are not good."
VICE PRESIDENT for Academic Af-
fairs Frank Rhodes said yesterday the
current cut will "hurt very badly," par-
ticularly in the areas of natural science
engineering and basic medical sciences

where laboratory supplies and other
equipment are already insufficient to
meet student needs.
Rhodes also echoed Kennedy's warning
that the University's fiscal back may be
again.et the wall if the budget has to be
cut again. He used the phrase of prom-
inent American educator Kenneth Bould-
ing when he said the administration was
presiding over "the management of de-
"There comes a point where if the
quality of student counseling services de-.
clines, or the number of closed courses
continues to rise, program cuts might
be considered," said Rhodes.

deady poisons
CV eapon researc
WASHINGTON (Reuter) -- The Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA) spent 18 years and $3 million dollars mak-
ing daly poisons and tiny devices like fountain pen dart
launchers to fire them into unsuspecting victims, it was
disclosed yesterday.
CIA Director William Colby, lead-off witness as the
Senate Select Committee on Intelligence held the first
open hearing of its eight-month long inquiry, said 37
lethal poisons were found earlier this year in an agency
INCLUDED in the vault were small quantities of shellfish toxin
and cobra venom which, Colby said, middle-ranking CIA officers
decided to save desnite a 1970 order by President Richard Nixon.

CONCORD, N.H. IP) -- Democrat John
Durkin won New Hampshire's overtime
Senate election last night, trouncing Re-
publican Louis Wynman and turning what
had been history's closest contest into a
"There's no need for a recount," Durkin
said jubilantly as he celebrated victory with
his cheering supporters in Manchester.
AS THE count neared completion, Durkin
held a 22,000-vote lead, a startling contrast
to the last official tally of the Nov. S Sen-
ate election which gave Wyman a contested
two-vote edge.
"I might not be the smoothest item to
come down the turnpike, but I'm going to
stand up, I'm going to speak out, and I'm
going to rock the boat in a responsible man-
ner until Washington starts listening to the
people again," said the feisty 39-year-old




Wyman pronounced the obituary of the
year's campaign he entered as a heavy fa-
vorite two .recounts and two elections ago.
"I WILL accept and I do accept the man-
date of the people of New Hampshire," he
said. -
Ten months ago, the race was a virtual
tie, but yesterday it was all Durkin by a
surprising margin in an election that drew
a far heavier turnout than the campaign
strategists had expected. Both sides had
said the count would be close, but it wasn't.
Both camps had forecast a low voter turn-
out, but more ballots were cast this time
than last.
Wyman's campaign manager said Dur-
kin's most telling weapon was the fact that
he could run against Washington, against
the federal government. Durkin did that
with a vengeance, saying his victory should
send a message to the Capital to listen to

the people and get to work.
WITH ALL but 18 of New Hampshire's
299 precincts reporting, this was the vote
Durkin 125,585 or 53 per cent; Wyman
103,210 or 43 per cent; third party candi-
date Carmen Chimento 8,319 votes, or four
per cent.
Chimento conceded, too, but it was evi-
dent that the conservative American party
candidate had captured votes which other-
wise would likely have been in the Wyman
"THE PEOPLE have spoken," said Wy-
man. He said he had tried all year to get

for a rerun election, and accepted its ver-
"There is a decision here that is a clear
decision, and I accept it in the spirit of
the American way," he said.

busing ruln g
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford said yesterday he be-
lieves the federal courts apparently have not taken sufficient no-
tice of 1974 legislation that would make forced busing of school
children a last resort tactic.
.In discussing school busing controversies in Boston and Louis-
ville, Ford expressed the opinion that federal courts apparently
had not taken into proper account an August, 1974 amendment to
the education laws that he said listed seven alternatives to be
tried before resorting to forced busing.
REMINDED that he, in a series of speeches last week, kept
stating there was a better way to bring about integration than
busing, Ford was asked if other approaches wouldn't cost more
He said he believed additional federal money already had
been provided to Boston and Louisville.
In his public discussions of alternatives to busing, Ford has
emphasized improved school facilities, hiring better teachers and
lowering student-teacher ratios.
ASKED about prospects that his administration would seek
an extension of the 1975 recession-fighting tax cut, Ford said he
would do so "if additional stimulus is required."
However, he indicated that if the economy gave promise of
