Ann Arbor, Michigan-Wednesday, October 8, 1975
IFCMVSEE 06 APPE CALL .Nyy
After booting an estimated 1,000 Scouts out of the
Stadium Saturday, the University's face was red.
And Monday, the head honcho, Robben Fleming
himself, made an official apology to the little
eager-beavers. Fleming usually avoids talking
sports, but in a statement he said, "On behalf of
the University of Michigan I want to apologize to
the Cub and Boy Scouts who attended the Missouri
game last Saturday as our guests, and then found
themselves evicted from their seats. The error
which resulted in this unfortunate incident was
entirely the University's." As part of the apology,
the Scouts will be given an opportunity to attend
the Northwestern game, October 18, and sit in
seats, no less.
Scoop poops out
As one of the endless stops on his presidential
campaign, Washington's Democratic Senator, Scoop
Jackson, was scheduled to make a speech to cap
the Bicentennial Day at Pinckney High School. But
Scoop bowed out because he had to stay in Wash-
ington for a House-Senate conference about an
energy bill. Instead of going himself, Jackson gave
a brief talk over a phone hook-up, saying how sorry
he was he couldn't attend. As compensation he also
asked a friend; Elmo Zumwalt, to appear for him.
Zumwalt is former chief of naval operations, and
is himself considering a run for the Senate in
The Union Ballroom was the scene of the Sec-
ond Annual Graduate School and Career Confer-
ence for Minority Students yesterday. "The pur-
pose is to offer students jobs, both summer and
regular," said Caren Yancey, Coordinator of the
minority section of Career Planning and Place-
ment. According to employers at the conference,
graduates with degrees in engineering, business,
health sciences, and social work are in high de-
mand. Teachers and journalists' have glutted the
market, however. "It's good to acquaint minority
students with the opportunities available to them,"
said one recruiter. Amen.

On the trail
The election is still thirteen months away, but
that matters little to the hard-core pols. The race
is on. In news of unannounced contenders for the
top jobs in Washington, former California Gover-
nor Ronald Reagan told an airport news confer-
ence in Martinsburg, Penn. that he would accept
the vice-president's job if the GOP honchos con-
vinced him they wanted him to take the post. "I
have never liked that second job, but if the party
convinced me that it's necessary then it's like a
call to duty," the self-sacrificing ex-movie star
said. And despite avowals to the contrary, guess
who else is beginning to make noise again? That
dusty relic of days gone by, Hubert Humphrey,
has now conceded he'd accept a draft from the
Democrats if they nominate him at their conven-
tion next July in New York. At the AFL-CIO con-
ference in San Francisco, over 2,000 enthusiastic
union leaders chanted, "Hubert, Hubert," while
Mr. Modesty himself shyly demurred from re-
porters' questions about his future ambitions.
Looks like 1950's rock and roll star Fabian Forte
is no teen angel. Fabian, who was discovered while
still in high school, and who rode to fame with
such recordings as Turn Me Loose, was arrested
yesterday in Los Angeles on charges that he al-
legedly beat his estranged wife and her mother.
Police said that Fabian, 32, his wife Katie, 34,
and her mother Moreau Regan, 69, got into an
argument after dinner Sunday, at which point the
former teen idol allegedly hit his wife in the face,
chest, neck, and ribs, and supposedly tossed a
punch at his mother-in-law's mouth for good mea-
sure. Forte then took off, but was apprehended
about a mile from his house by police, responding
to a call from his wife.

University technicians voted
not to unionize in an election
which ended yesterday. Repre-
sentation by the American Fed-
eration of State, County and
Muncipal Employees (AFSCME)
was rejected by a margin of
415 to 323.
The bargaining unit would
have included nearly 1,000 full-
time and part-time employes at
the Ann Arbor, Flint and Dear-
born campuses. Although tech-
nicians are employed under 110
separate job classifications, the
majority of them are licensed

said Glenn Marshall, AFSCME

paign director for the econ.
He indicated, however, that a
"substantial number" had de-
sired a Union and that if support
grew, AFSCME would be back.
William Neff, assistant person-
nel director for the University,
said, "We are pleased both with
the size of the voting turnout
and by the confidence expressed
by the majority in the Univer-
sity as an employer." He said
that since some employes had
wanted a union, "there must be

"we plan to extend our efforts
in order to work out problems
which may have prompted some

primarily upon the long delay in

WASHINGTON R) - Congress cannot pledge to meet
President Ford's request for a $28 billion tax cut tied to
an equal reduction on spending until it sees the Admin-
istration's new budget, the House's chief tax writer said
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Al Ull-
man (D-Ore.), said Ford's plan is "an impossible one."
Ford proposed enactment of $28 billion in permanent tax
cuts for 1976 if Congress agrees to cut spending by an
identical amount, setting a $395 billion spending ceiling
for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1, 1976.

Pat Boran, a Minneapolis four-year-old, grits his teeth to avoid saying anything nasty;
great burdens he must take on to please his five-year-old brother Mike.

Simon argued Congress could
pledge itself to a $395 billion
spending ceiling and leave the
details to be worked out in talks
with the Ford Administration.

year is enacted, said Ford, the
government will face a two-year

THE pronosed $28 billion cut,
for 1976, which Ford called "the
biggest single tax cut in our his-
tory," includes the 1975 tax cuts
totaling $22.9 billion which the
President wants to extend.
Ford's plan does not contain
any provision for rebates, but
individual taxpayers would get
about $2.6 billion more in tax re-
ductions in 1976 than in 1975.

special To The Daily
SOUTHFIELD --- U. S. Congressman Donald Riegle (D-Mich.)
yesterday announced he will run for the Senate next year and
indicated his campaign will focus on solutions to economic ills such
as unemployment and high prices.
Riegle, a fifth-term Representative from Flint, accused the
Ford and Nixon Administrations of "gross economic mismanage-
ment" which, he said, has convinced Americans that the federal
government no longer cares about them.
UNTIL 1973, Riegle was a Republican. He became a Demo-
crat after consistently breaking with mainstream GOP members
on many issues including the war in Vietnam.
The 38-year-old Congressman is the first major Democrat to
officially announce plans to run for fellow party member Philip
Hart's Senate seat. Hart will retire when his third term expires
If elected, Riegle promised he would push legislation stabiliz-
ing prices and creating jobs - particularly in the recession-rav
aged automobile industry.

SAN FRANCISCO (RP) -- A
urologist reports a new surgical
technique has initially proven
effective in reversing vasectomy
-an operation once considered
almost synonymous with hfelcng
Dr. Sherman Silber reported
yesterday that the first 24 pa-
tients who underwent the opera-

sperm count and 16 of their
wives have become pregnant.
Silber, assistant nrofessor of
urology at the University of Cal-
ifornia Medical Center and chief
of urology at the Veteran's Ad-
ministration Hospital here, said
the new surgical technique util-
izes a 40-power microascope, ny-
lon thread so slender it is in-
visible to the naked eye, and
knives, forceps and other surgi-
cal tools honed so finely their
points are barely visible.
THE microsurgery techniques
are used to rejoin the male
sperm ducts which are severed
in vasectomy-a relatively sim-
ple, inexpensive and effective
birth control operation which
about a million American men
undergo each year.
