T akin' a chance
Michigan's new instant lottery, five days old
today, is meeting with terrific response in town-
but not by students. "We've had probably 50
winners already since Tuesday,"said Sandra Wil-
son, clerk at the VIP Discount shop on State Street,
"but the students are probably ten per cent of our
sales." According to Wilson, businesspeople, nurses
and professors have been buying up the dollar-a-
shot tickets, trying for the grand prize of a million
bucks. Prizes of two and five dollars can be
claimed at the purchase counter. "Usually, the
winners buy more tickets," said Wilson, "but when
they lose, they're done."

Bank job
Some people don't like to mess with the state
lottery-they want to get rich even quicker. One
of them robbed the Ann Arbor Bank and Trust
Branch office on Forest St. Thursday afternoon.
That's the third time in the last eight days one
of the company's branches has been knocked over.
A young man walked in and ordered a teller to fill
his knapsack with money. She complied to the
tune of $1,000. The lad claimed he had a gun but
never flashed his rod. Police have no suspects.
Neither do we.
Looking up
Consumer confidence is on the rise-just like
prices, according to a survey conducted by the
University's Survey Research Center. The survey,
part of an on-going study, reported that consumers
heard more good news than bad about the economy
in August for the first time since late 1972. But
the researchers noted that the consumers' spirits
have been buoyed very slowly. Also buyers seemed
to be slightly worried about resurgence of inflation;,
they said. "Data during the last five years suggest
that consumer attitudes and expectations are in-
creasingly volatile in response to economic news,"
the study stated. Maybe it's just that consumers
have been down so long.. .

Zappa-ed
In an advertisement in yesterday's Daily, UAC
announced that tickets for the up-coming Frank
Zappa concert would go on sale Monday, October
14-which made more than a few people shake
their heads in disbelief. Never fear, Zappa will be
here. And the tickets go on sale TUESDAY,
October 14.

Dope notes
The University may have a bunch of monkeys
hooked on smack, but the San Jose police have a
mouse who's big on marijuana. Marty is his name
and the cops report he is dying-not from an
overdose but a broken heart. Marty's companion,
a little field mouse named Mata Hari, died two
weeks ago and he hasn't been the same since.
Police officers saidsthat Marty, the official depart-
ment mascot, has started losing fur and refuses
to eat marijuana seeds. Marty used to raid the
locker where the officers store evidence seized in
dope busts. Hopefully Marty can get it together

again, we wish him only the best.

The Air Force. Academy will be admitting about
150 women next year, and most of the men now
enrolled in the school think it's a pretty good idea-
even though the female cadets won't be allowed to
date upperclassmen. "Women cadets will be allow-
ed to date men cadets, but first-year women only
will be allowed to date other members of their
class," an academy spokesperson said. The of-
ficial also said the women would be housed in
separate facilities and a portion of the cadet barber
shop would be set aside as a beauty shop. How
nice. And they'll probably make mean B-52 pilots
to boot.

COBO HALL PRESS CONFERENCE

'can't-do'

Congress

Announces lift of embargo on
U.S. grain sales to Poland

By JIM TOBIN
Special To The Daily
D E T R O I T -- President
G e r a 1 d Ford yesterday
branded a "can't-do Con-
gress" one of the prime tar-
gets of his 1976 campaign
at a Republican fund-rais-
ing dinner at Detroit's Cobo
Hall.
"This Congress ought to
find a way .. . to respond to
the desires of the American
people," said Ford. "It takes
a little imagination. It takes
a little effort. Instead of
whining and whimpering...
they ought to get out there
and do the job."
DURING HIS six-hour trip to
the state, Ford gave a 45-minute
press conference at Cobo Hall,
attended a $500 per couple Re-
publican reception at the Pon-
chartrain Hotel, then returned
to Cobo Hall for the $50-per-
plate dinner.
Ford also announced to the
press conference that because of
"an excellent U.S. crop fore-
cast." he was authorizing a lift
on the embargo on wheat sales
to Poland. He also said he was
"outimistic" about trade talks
with the Soviet Union over Rus-
sian oil and U.S. wheat.
Concerning the negotiatimns,
Ford said, "All I can say as I
am optimistic but we are deal-
ing with some tough tr iders
and I don't want to create the
imnression that it is all signed
on the dotted line. We are ds-
cussing an oil deal that will.

have some favorable aspevts.
"WE ARE trying to be good,
hard-nosed Yankee traders," he
went on. "I think we ought to
handle it that way rather than
be too soft. . . . I can assure
you that the United States will
do as well in the areas where
we want help, and I think we'
have to expect that they will do
well in those areas where tney
have an interest."
At both the press confere.ice

and dinner Ford stuck to a firm
d e f e n s e of his recently-an-
no'iced tax-cut plan and assail-
ed his Congressional critics.
The program calls for a $28
billion tax cut accompanied by
an equal cut in federal spend-
ing.
"Congressional critics of my
proposals to cut taxes and to
cut spending call this proposal
political," he said. "But oolitics

President' s security'
tight in Motor City
By MARGARET YAO
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Tension was high and presidential security - al-
ready tight - was reinforced after two Detroit men allegedly made
threats on Ford's life yesterday.
Following the two apparent assassination attempts last month
in California, Ford did not mingle with the crowd in his usual
style. This time, he and hs wife Betty waved to the crowd from
their limousine as they passes from their hotel to Cobo Hall.
"THEY'RE trying to get security as tight as possible. We don't
want no trouble from nobody," declared one Detroit policeman.
Daniel Sadowski of Dearborn, after phoning his threat to police,
was arrested yesterday morning. Another man, Leon Lemmons was
taken into custody after allegedly threatening Ford's life.
Cobo Hall and the Pontchartrain hotel, where Ford stayed, crawl-
ed with Secret Service agents. Their sunglasses, and alert, anxious
manner immediately revealed their identities.
Up to two hours before Ford's scheduled 4;15 p.m. arrival, the
lobby of the posh Pontchartrain had an uneasy air. At least 25
Secret Service agents were visible in the lobby while Detroit police
inspected everyone at the main entrance.

RIS ECO4INOMIC POLICIES:
Udall assails

Udall

Ford
By TOM ALLEN
Democratic presidential hope-
ful Morris Udall attacked the
Ford administration's economic
policies last night in Ann Arbor
-the final stop in a one-day
campaign swing through four
states.
The crowd of about 200 per-
sons assembled. in the League
warmly received the Arizona
Congressman's mixture of wit,
anecdotes, and criticism direct-
ed at the present administraton.
THE TALL, sturdy Udall de-
clared that Ford "has got to be
defeated for the sake of the
country" and had harsh words
for what he called the Ford ad-
ministration's failure to effec-
tivelv handle the American un-
emnlovment situation.
He charged that a second
Ford administration would fail
to lower the unemployment rate
below seven per cent. "I don't
know whether you can hold a
society together on the lang haul
with that kind of unemploy-
ment," he said.
In his hour-long talk, Udall
focused on those issues he has
earlier labeled the three Es:
"Energy, Environment, and the
Economy."
UDALL claimed the concen-
tration on economic issues could
serve to reunify a Democratic
Party that has, since 1968, been
seriously factionalized.
"In the rast." Udall said, "the
glue of the Democratic Darty
were the economic issues, the
people issues."
The candidate went on to say
that the Democrats must prac-

Israel releases two
oI fields to Egypt
RAS SUDR, Sinai Desert (P)-Israel signed the final documents
of the interim Sinai peace agreement yesterday and turned control
of two oil fields over to Egypt.
The Israelis had withheld final signing of the pact worked out
by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger until after U.S. Senate
approval Thursday of a provision sending 200 American civilians
to man early warning stations betveen the front lines in the desert.
THE AMERICANS were not expected to fly to the Middle East
until February..
Egypt fully signed the protocol Sept. 22. It provides for Israeli
troops to pull back up to 30 miles east of the Suez Canal. It also
calls for Israel to turn over 1,900 square miles of desert, which it
has occupied since the 1967 Middle East war, to the U.N.

GnEO accuses 'U'of slowness
on* affirmative action proposal

By JAMES NICOLL
Speakers at a G r a d u a t e
Employes Organization (GEO)-
sponsored rally yesterday de-
nounced t h e University f o r
"dragging its feet" on affirma-
tive action.
The rally, called to garner
support for GEO affirmative ac-
tion proposals, drew about 150
persons to the Diag at noon.
Over a dozen campus organi-a-
tions were represented.
GEO IS currently negotiating
with the Univeristy over a

"memorandum of understand-
ing" appended to the contract
signed last year.
This memorandum calls for
the University to conduct Sur-
veys to determine the number
of graduate students in eazh ae-
pai'tment's "availability pool."
An availability pool is defined
as those graduate students from
within the department, or from
those departments from which
graduate students are usually
selected, that are eligible for
employment in a given terr.

ONCE THE availability pool
has been determined, the Uni-
versity must make a "utiliza-
tion survey." The utilization sur-
vey compares the proportion of
minorities and women employed
as Graduate Student Assistants
(GSA) with the porportion in
the availability pool.
Where the proportion of mi-
norities and women GSAs is
less than the proportion in the
availability pool, a "deficiency"
exists and the University is
called upon to set up a program
to remedy the deficiencies.
The University a g r e e d to
make a "good faith effort" to
implement a program by Sep-
ternh~r 1975.
THE UNIVERSITY has not
vet implemented a program and
has not finished collection of
the data. Its failure to do so
has provoked GEO charges that
the University is not makng a
"ToUd faith effort."
The IUiveristy maintains that

UFO

bliss trip: Just another hoax?

WALDPORT, Ore. W) -- "The Two" promised celes-
tial bliss and a trip in a UFO. Some say it's an elab-
orate hoax, but a handful of people from three states
may have followed them to a secret camp in Colorado
to precare for the journey to a better life.

"The Two" called their group Human Individual
Metamorphosis or HIM.
Doug Baker, a columnist for the Oregon Journal says
he was told the UFO story is "nothing more than a wild
and wonderful hoax perpetrated by a pair of college
