What, no Bosco?
The speculation was furious. Dozens, if not hun-
dreds, of well-wishers were wondering where all
the Veterans' Day festivities were in Ann Arbor.
Some people thought the Vets had gone under-
ground. Others figured City Council had voted to
secede from the Union without telling anyone. The
only remainder of the day's festivities was that
the post office had taken a holiday. Well, don't
du t a ichign law that kept the holiay t its
original date. They may be able to mess with the
time of day, but ain't nobody that's going to
change the Veterans' Day in Michigan.

the rise and has increased substanitially." Kline
said drug dealers are trading for everything from
pistols to machine guns to protect themselves
from Mexican vigilantes. Next time you go to
make a deal, be sure to pack your .48. Kline says
it's "better than money."
First priority
The National Organization for Women yesterday
overwhelmingly supported a resolution making
equal rights for lesbians- a top priority for the
feminist group. NOW voted to work for local and
state legislation guaranteeing rights of homosex-
uals. It also voted to actively support a Gay Rights
bill introduced by Rep. Bella Abzug (D-N.Y.) which
would make discrimination against homosexuals
a federal offense. The question of lesbians' place
in the women's rights movement has been a con-
troversial topic for feminist groups in the past, but
there was only scattered opposition to the resolu-
tion at the NOW convention in Philadelphia.
a ppo ah n g t e ln i g srp of t e alwe m r port
in Washtenaw County. Killed were Arthur Rogers,
52, of Livonia, and an unidentified Portsmouth,
Ohio man. Seriously injured in the crash were
Rogers' daughter and another Plymouth man, both
of whom were taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital

in Ann Arbor. A witness reported that the two
planes appeared to be approaching the same land-
ing strip, one above the other, when the lower
plane veered upward and struck the other. The
Federal Aviation Administration has undertaken
an investigation of the collision, as is their prac-
tice with all airplane crashes.
