Latest Deadline in the State

Vol. LXXXVI, No. 15

Ann Arbor, Michigan-Saturday, September 20, 1975

Ten Cents

Forewarned is .. .
Some football fans are going to have a tough
time making their way to the stadium to see the
Maize and Blue in action from now on. According
to a spokesman for the State Police, thetSaline
Rd. exit off of I-94-a major artery for Saturday
football traffic-is closed "forever and ever." The
exit appeared to be undergoing repair, but the
State Police said yesterday that the repair plans
have been offed. The police suggest travelers use
either the State St. or Jackson exits to reach the
Michigan Stadium.
Sexy Sears
Looks like the 1975 Sears Roebuck catalogue
may take the place of Playgirl magazine. A lot of
people keep turning to page 602 for a good eyeful.
A male model, about 30, is shown stripped down
to boxer shorts and some sharp eyed catalogues
readers say you don't need imagination to see
what else is shown. The sexy man in shorts on
page 602 makes the 1975 catalogue the most provo-
cative since the company first began sending them
out in 1888.
Belly button cords
A lot of people think the belly button is a waste
-a useless hole in a perfectly good stomach. Even
worse are the umbilical cords that get tossed away
once they've been cut and tied to make the lowly
belly button. Two surgeons have finally put the
leftover cords to good use. They take a vein from
the cord and fashion it into a substitute artery.
They think they have saved the legs of five per-
sons given the substitutes because their own leg
arteries had become blocked.
Expert advice
In the wake of the second state-wide mushroom
death, Dr. Alexander Smith, dean of the Univer-
sity's mushroom experts, repeats his advice once
again: "Get to know your mushrooms like you
know your friends. Be able to tell them in the
dark." Smith cautions amateurs to take a guide-
book into the field with them, and not to eat any-
thing until it has been positively identified. "It's
easy to make a mistake," he warned, "but with
education nobody has to get sick." Amen.

Last laugh
Liberals may laugh about a George Wallace
wristwatch, but the fighting Judge may get the
last guffaw. The timepieces may draw snickers,
but the profit-a healthy $7 per chronometer-is
hardly Mickey Mouse. Proceeds, of course, go to
help little George buck the bad liberals in his
third bid for all the marbles. The watch will have
a picture of the pride of Dixie wearing boxing
gloves as he prepares to fight. Other Wallace
mementoes about to be unloaded on the public
include medallions in bronze, silver and. gold,
which sell for $10, $25 and $50 respectively, and a
biography of the Alabama salvation for $4.95. Wal-
lace himself will see his bank account-as well as
his campaign's-fattened by the sales, and the
Federal Election Commission smelled a skunk

even if no law had been broken. In a letter to the
Wallace campaign, lawyers for the commission
wrote, "The commission would be less than frank
if it failed to note its disapproval of any practice
whereby a candidate personally profits from cam-
paign contributions."

A Republican-Human Rights Party coalition
pushed through a compromise spending plan for
the city's $2.4 million in federal revenue sharing
funds last night, and thus set the stage for po-
litical warfare.
Democratic Mayor Albert Wheeler - vehement-
ly opposed to the compromise plan - has vowed
to retaliate with his veto power, and the Republi-
cans, in turn, have promised to launch a recall
drive against the Mayor when he signs the veto.
THE 6-5 PASSAGE of the Community Develop-
ment Revenue Sharing (CDRS) funds came yes-
terday during an emergency City Council meet-
ing, called by council members Louis Belcher (R-
Fourth Ward), Robert Henry (R-Third Ward) and
Kathy Kozachenko (HRP-Second Ward).
Wheeler has until Friday to formally veto the
measure, but said yesterday that "if the Republi-

can-HRP coalition passed a resolution regarding
the use of CDRS funds which appeared to be ir-
responsible and untimely . . . then I would use
the veto power of the Mayor to prevent such mis-
use of funds."
When questioned about the imminent recall
campaign against him, Wheeler exclaimed, "They
haven't got any charges and I defy them to get
any charges that would justify a recall."
"WHAT YOU folks have to realize is that these
(Republicans) are cunning, devious politicians -
they have some things in mind that they want
to do and they're going to use any method they
can to do it."
The recall campaign "is going to bother me
about as much as a - I won't say mosquito be-
cause it might be carrying encephalitis - it'll
bother me about as much as a fly on my coat,"
Wheeler asserted.
Also high in the minds of city Republicans is

clash ovc
a petition drive which would repeal Ann Arbor's
unique, confusing preferential voting (PV) sys-
tem. Under the method - credited with giving
Wheeler a victory over former Republican Mayor
James Stephenson last April - voters were given
three choices for mayor. No candidate received
a clear majority, so the second choices of the
candidate who finished third were redistributed
among the other two candidates. It was this re-
distribution that elevated Wheeler into office.
"WHAT THEY'LL do with that stupid (PV re-
peal) petition is go out and try to whip up some
support and then offer Al Wheeler as a bonus,"
the mayor declared. If the GOP goes ahead with
its recall campaign, the petitions will most likely
be circulated with the PV repeal petitions.
Nearly 10,000 signatures would be required to
put the recall question on the ballot, while only
4,000 would be necessary for the PV repeal vote.

Ex-fugitive seen
as unsafe ri~sk
By AP and Reuter
SAN FRANCISCO - A federal judge denied bail yes-
terday for Patricia Hearst and said he had serious doubts
about granting freedom to someone who had declared op-
position to society and "punctuated it with gunfire."
Hearst's attorney responded that the once-fugitive
heiress intended to plead innocent to the several charges
against her and argued that she should be granted bail.
He reminded the judge that Hearst began as a kidnap vic-
tim before declaring her allegiance to her terrorist captors.
U.S. DISTRICT COURT Judge Oliver Carter said he would con-
sider arguments in favor of freeing Hearst, but made it clear ''e

did not now regard her a safe
He revoked until Tuesday the
$500,000 bail set Thursday. The
court then would decide wheth-
er she would be a "flight risk,"
he said.
Hearst was ordered impris-
oned Thursday on charges of
bank robbery and possessing
firearms unless she could put
up the $500,000.
SHE IS also being held on an-
other $550,000 bail set by a Los
Angeles court some months ago
while she was still being sought.
U.S. Atty. James Browning
told the judge that Hearst, ap-
prehended Thursday with three
fellow radicals,,carried a load-
ed .38-caliber pistol in her purse
when arrested.

DURING the hearing in a
packed courtroom, Browning
disclosed that the government
intended to use Hearst's own
tape recorded revolutionary
rhetoric in its case against her
and he strongly argued against
her release.
"There are no conditions of
release that will assure Miss
Hearst's future appearance be-
fore this court," Browning told

of revolutionaries called the

harboring," Kelley said without
