Latest Deadline in the State
Ann Arbor, Michigan-Saturday, November 1, 1975
People can always blame unflattering pictures
on bad lighting or an out-of-focus camera. But
when a University senior opened the envelope of
yearbook picture proofs from Root Studios and
found a black and white Great Dane staring at
him, he knew it wasn't the face he greeted in
the mirror every morning. Evidently, photos of
Gaites, the Theta Xi fraternity mascot, had been
mistakenly mailed to a somewhat insulted stu-
dent. Although Gaites will not be appearing in
the yearbook, "for $3, we'll take anyone's pic-
ture," said an 'Ensian spokesperson. Meanwhile,
Gaites' owners have yet to see the photos of
their canine buddy.
It looks like Ann Arbor's garbage collection
business is really picking up. The City Council is
expected to approve the purchase of two new gar-
bage trucks at their next meeting Monday night.
The two vehicles will cost the taxpayers $74,000.
The new equipment was bought to replace worn
out and obsolete vehicles.
On the street
University Housing Council members are upset
that one of their group is representing a district
in which he no longer resides. Greg Higby was
elected last April as the representative for South
Quad and Fletcher Housing. He had already lost
his room in South Quad in the dorm lottery, how-
ever. Now he's up for impeachment in the Cen-
tral Student Judiciary (CSJ). Higby says he'll hap-
pily resign once he is vindicated by the CSJ.

Are the Girl Scouts of America trying to tell
President Ford he should learn the alphabet? A
group of them presented Ford with a plaque full
of dry alphabet noodles last night. It was not an
advertisement for Campbell's soup but a model of
the Declaration of Independence that took 10 in-
dustrious Girl Scouts 60 hours to construct. The
plaque was the idea of one Girl Scout's mother
who said it came to her one night when she
was having difficulty sleeping. The Girl Scouts
used tweezers to place the 8,000 tiny, quarter-inch
high letters and punctuation marks.
Americans are one big downer. Pollster George
Gallup reports that Americans have become so
pessimistic over the economic situation that the
nation seems to be heading for "its greatest crisis
of confidence" since the Great Depression. His
recently completed survey shows a "significant
decline in the way Americans view the quality
of their own lives and prospects for the future."
Another pollster, Peter Hart, says his surveys show
Americans have lost faith not only in the govern-
ment's economic policies, but also in both political
parties - with 57 per cent believing both Demo-
crats and Republicans "are more in fabor of
big business" than in workers.
Americans spend over $50 billion each year
on non-prescription sleeping and calming aids, but
the drugs' effects are weak and overuse is poten-
tially harmful, a panel of scientists says. The sci-
entists told a Senate small business panel that
televising advertising for the over the counter
sleep-aid drugs should be banned. The major sleep-
aid products cited were Sominex, Nytol, Quiet
World and Nervine. The scientists said the drugs,
estimated to be used by between five and 10
per cent of adult Americans, possibly can kill
if misused and pose a particular threat to the

SEQUESTERED FOR NIGHT.
DETROIT (UPI)--Jurors weighing the fate of state Supreme
Court Justice John Swainson failed in all-day deliberations yester-
day to reach a verdict on the charges of bribery, conspiracy and
The only break during the deliberation was a jury request to
hear three taped conversations made by the FBI during its sur-
veillance of Swainson and a fellow defendant, Harvey Wish.
THE CONVERSATIONS were taped with the help of John
Whalen, a convicted burglar turned FBI informant, who was
"wired" with a tiny transmitter during several meetings with
Whalen brought Swainson, the first sitting justice to face
felony charges, into court after he told authorities he arranged a
$30,000 bribe in exchange for Swainson's help in obtaining a new
The jury began its deliberations at 8:30 a.m. and, except for
a lunch break, continued throughout the day. Then after a dinner
break, the jury went back to the jury room for another hour
before calling it quits for the night.
THE DELIBERATIONS are scheduled to resume this morning.
Swainson, 50, a World War II hero prominent in Michigan
politics for 20 years, paced the marble halls of the federal building
its central Detroit for much of time as he waited with lawyers,
newsmen, friends and other persons interested in the case.
