If you can make it through Ann Arbor's bleak
winter, you're in for a gorgeous spring. The Hague
Philharmonic, the City of the Hague, and the Hol-
land Flower Bulb industry have given 4,800 hya-
cinth bulbs to the University. Beds are now be-
ing prepared on the mall along South Ingalls
Street between the Michigan League and Hill Aud.
The bulbs are half blue and half white, and guess
what color tulips are planned for the beds? Red-

"White people in the U. S. have been able to

President Ford's got his heads of state mixed
up. At the end of a banquet given in his honor by
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, Ford called Sa-
dat the president of Israel. After ignoring a pre-
pared text, Ford ended a rather eloquently ad
libbed tribute to Sadat by asking the guests at
Sadat's dinner to join him in "a toast to the presi-
dent of Israel." Excuse me, Egypt," he hastily
added as an audible gasp was heard throughout

The State Supreme Court Wednesday upheld
the autonomy of state-funded universities over
their budgets and programs.
The court ruled that the suit's plaintiffs - the
University of Michigan, Wayne State, and Michi-
gan State - must keep the legislature and State
Board of Education informed of their programs
and building plans, but do not need their ap-

point of view, but we always insisted that we
weren't bound by the state board or legislature
and they always insisted we were."

"This is a terribly important decision, for it
makes it clear that the role of the board is ad-

But state Rep. Perry Bullard said he felt that
the decision was not of great importance since
the initial allocation of budget monies to the
universities remains in the hands of the legis-
"THE TOTAL appropriation each year is de-
pendent on the good will of the legislature," said
Bullard. "They may have the technical ability
to say 'We have $100 million and we're not going
to tell you what we're doing with it,' but they
have to justify their budget each year in order
to have a budget next year," he said.

MADRID, S p a i n - The
Spanish government re-
moved critically ill Fran-
cisco F r a n c o from power
last night and named his
hand - picked h e i r, Prince
Juan Carlos de B o r b o.n,
temporary head of state.
Although F r a n c o 's re-
moval does not become per-
manent until his death, the
transfer effectively marked
the end of the generalis-
simo's 36-year domination
of Spanish affairs.

out in the Spanish constitution,
Premier Carlos Arias Navarro
formally announced the transfer
of power in a letter to the presi-
dent of the Spanish parliament.
It was then reported over na-
tional radio and television and
by the semiofficial news agency
The announcement came mo-
ments after Franco's doctors
reported they had punctured his
stomach to reduce a build-up
of fluid in his abdomen, and
two weeks after the 82-year-old
chief of state was stricken by
influenza. Heart troubles and a

An Esalen sensitivity - training contact game
Under the direction of two Esalen workers,
about 100 students gathered at the Union last
night to try out some therapeutic "gimmicks,"
without having to pay the regular steep clinic
fees for the treatment.
AND FEES aren't the only obstacle one nor-
mally has to surmount to partake in Esalen
treatment. It usually requires a trip to the
west coast, to the plush Esalen clinic nestled
among the mineral spring near Los Angeles. The
clinic has become a world-famous center for
people wanting to "get their heads together."
"We enjoy playing with each other, and so we
use all kinds of gimmicks like these contact
games to get each other in touch in a more direct
way," explains Julien Silverman, a member of
the Esalen team. "The way we contact the world
determines how you experience it."
When the hand-holding contact game ends, the
participants take a first look at the partners they

'SOUND OFF SUPPORT FOR CITY':
Carey urges demos in NYC
NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Hugh
Carey called on New Yorkers
yesterday "to take to the streets
... to sound off support for the
city" in demonstrations aimed
at getting Congress to approve
emergency legislation to avoid
a financial default by the city.
Carey's appeal came as the
Senate Banking Committee in
Washington approved a bill
with $4 billion in loan guaran-
tees for the city and sent it
on to an uncertain fate on the
Senate floor and a threatened
veto by President Ford.
THE BILL would place the
city on a strict fiscal regime to
balance its budget and prevent
a default after Dec. 1, when
money from a state-designed
$2.3 billion rescue package runs
out. The city will need an esti-
mated $4.2 billion for expenses
and debt retirement from Dec.
1 to June 30.
President Ford said yester-
day in San Francisco that New
York City's financial crisis
should serve as a warning to
all municipalities to manage
their affairs properly. Ford said
if they do they will have no
problem selling their municipal
bonds on a free market.
Ford told the Metromedia,
Inc., reporters that New York
City has been mismanaged for
10 to 12 years and it now has
the opportunity to strengthen
its financial foundation by such
means as raising taxes, cutting
costs and modifying its expen-

"I believe my proposal is the
only choice," he said. "Under
my proposal, the city would
come under the jurisdiction of
a judge, not a politician."
"I don't think the President
of the United States should be-
come a temporary mayor of
New York City," he added.
