Ann Arbor, Michigan-Wednesday, November 5, 1975
You know those cornbeef sandwiches you swal-
lowed with relish at the Vaudeveill Deli until
recently? Don't gag now, but they were apparently
not prepared under the most sanitary conditions,
according to the County Healty Department. The
Daily reported last Friday that a pile of unpaid
bills had put the padlock on the deli, located on
South 'U' and State St. Barry Johnson of the
Health Dept. said yesterday his dept.'s routine
inspection turned up four pages of violations. The
list includes inadequate food protection, improper
storage of garbage, general uncleanliness, bad
maintenance of equipment, and a lack of hot
water for dishwashing.
$1000 reward offered
City police announced yesterday a new program
aimed at curtailing the recent rash of bank
robberies. The plan calls for persons to receive
rewards of up to $1,000 for providing information
that leads to the arrest of holdup suspects. The
rewards don't hinge on the conviction of those
arrested, police say. Local bankers, alarmed at the
17 bank robberies in the past year, have been
working with police on the program.

The truth comes out
Republicans in Kingston, New York opened their
newspapers just two days before a local election
and were shocked at what they read about their
party. In large bold typeface, an ad in the King-
ston Daily screamed, "We don't believe in telling
the truth. We do believe in false accusations. We
do believe in character assassination. We don't
believe in telling it like it is." The newspaper
claims the ad was the result of a mix up among
the do's and don'ts in the paste up department
and not the work of subversive Democrats. In
a front page editorial Monday, the Freeman
apologized for the mistake and ran the corrected
Two St. Louis criminals are being treated to
catered lobster dinners and plush hotel lodgings
instead of jail house bed and board - all at the
city's expense. The county sheriff, who apparently
wanted to dramatize the shortage of cell space
at the city's jail and workhouse, checked the two
prisoners into the Chase-Park Plaza hotel Mon-
day after they were refused entry into the work-
house because of overcrowding. Sheriff Raymond
Percich has been forced recently to house city
prisoners in jails all over Missouri. The fancy
hotel doesn't like the idea of servicing two men in
shackles, and it is seeking an eviction order. The
sheriff is billing the city for the $56 lodging bill
for the two prisoners, a bill for $32 for six lobster
dinners, and $2 for the tip he gave to the bellboy
who delivered the dinners. It's incentive enough
for any honest citizen to turn to crime.
The nation's going to get kicked around one
day for kicking around former President Richard
Nixon, predicts Nixon's staunch defender Rabbi
Baruch Korff. "I have a vision that one day this
nation will create a day of atonement to atone
for its sins against Richard Nixon and his ad-
ministration, the news media and liberals de-
stroyed Nixon "body and soul," Korff said.
A fairytale landmark in France sometimes
called the eighth wonder of the world is in danger
of losing its mystique. Mont St. Michel, a monas-
tery set on a tiny rocky island, in a quirk of
maritime evolution, is experiencing the reverse
of the phenomenon affecting Venice. While the
Italian city is gradually sinking in the Adriatic
Sea, Mont St. Michel is becoming earthbound.
"The process is irreversible, Monsieur," tourist
officials say. Mont St. Michel has been a mecca
for visitors since the middle ages, attracting some
1,500,000 tourists a year. British author Barbara
Whelpton described the fortress-abby as "a dream
castle suspended in an indigo sky." In an effort
to save Mont St. Michel, the French government
has begun scientific tests.

LANSING (UPI) - Ignoring calls for his imme-
diate resignation, Justice John Swainson said yesterday
he will remain on the state Supreme Court while he
appeals a perjury conviction that has left him "pub-
licly humiliated and financially ruined."
The public pressure for his resignation spread to
the state legislature, with one top Republican leader
warning that an attempt to remove Swainson from
office is "inevitable" if he does not step down volun-
"I WOULD hope that he would choose to resign and
I would predict that he ultimately will decide to do so,"
.said House GOP Leade' Dennis Cawthorne of Manistee.
"If he does not resign, it's inevitable that considera-
tion will be given in the legislature to impeachment or
Swainson announced his plans in a letter to Chief
Justice Thomas Kavanagh that underscored his deter-
mination to remain in office.
Swainson, 50, a legless World War II hero and the
state's last Democratic governor, said he wants his1
$43,500 a year Supreme Court salary placed in escrow
until his "eventual vindication."
He has not participated in deliberations or deci-
sions since his indictment on bribery conspiracy
charges July 3. He was acquitted on the bribery
charges by a Detroit jury Sunday night.
TWO PROMINENT Republicans, Senate
GOP Leader Robert Davis of Gaylord and GOP Floor
Leader Jack Toepp of Cadillac, called in a formal
statement yesterday for Swainson's resignation "to
protect the credibility of justice in Michigan."
However, House Speaker Bobby Crim, (D-Davison)
said he saw no necessity for Swainson to resign or for
the legislature to try to remove him from office while
the case is under appeal.
Crim told a news conference that if there is any
attempt to remove Swainson it should come from the
Supreme Court itself at the recommendation of the
watchdog Judicial Tenure Commission.
SWAINSON, in his first public statement since the
perjury conviction Sunday, told Kavanagh:
"Because of the misuse of a grand jury, I have
been publicly humiliated and financially ruined. My
career has been threatened, but I have no doubt of
my eventual vindication, because I am innocent.
"I have been found guilty of failing to remember
a specific event totally unrelated to the inquiry of the
grand jury, and two telephone conversations that oc-
curred two and one half years prior to my appear-
ance before the grand jury. I have not been convicted
of bribery or found to be in any way involved in a
conspiracy to bribe.
"THE INTEGRITY of the Supreme Court remains
unsullied and the reputation of its members unchal-
Kavanagh declined to comment on the letter.
Another bail bondsmen charged in the case who
has yet to stand trial, Charles Goldfarb, said yester-
day that his attorney will probably seek dismissal of
the charges against him.
Davis and Toepp were the first lawmakers to call
publicly on Swainson to quit. They said his continued
presence on the court "could seriously undermine in-
dispensible public confidence."
Similar pleas have come from George Bushnell,
president of the State Bar of Michigan, the Wolverine
Bar Association, the Detroit Bar Association and the
Detroit Free Press.

Teach-in ends wit concern
for U.S., Third orld future
By TOM ALLEN
Beginning this morning,
intern and resident physi-
cians at the University Hos-
pital will refuse to bill pa-
tients for services and will
s e t up an informational
picket line outside the fa-
cility in an attempt to re-
solve their contract dispute
with the University.
The interns and residents,
who perform approximately
9 per cent of the patient
care services at the hos-
pital, will, however, remain
on the job and will not cur-
tail their health care duties
in any way.
THE PROTESTING doctors
are members of the House Of-
ficers Association (HOA), which
also represents interns and resi-
dents at the Ann Arbor Veter-
an's Hospital and the Wayne
County General Hospital. Votes
by HOA members taken at
Wayne County General and Uni-
versity Hospitals resulted in
what HOA President Dr. Eric
Hodeen termed "good majority
support" for today's "job ac-
The executive officers of the
HOA have asked their members
to restrict the present job action'
to an administrative slowdown,
primarily in the area of billing
patients. Ordinarily the doctors,
after treating their patients,
assess the charge for that treat-
ment and record the amount on
the patient's health chart.
However, beginning today, the
interns and residents will refuse
to execute their billing duties.
Hodeen, a resident physician in
the hospital's arthritis unit, said
yesterday that "it has been
recommended that people (HOA
members( write 'no charge' or
'minimal charge' on the charts."
DESPITE the apparent mild-
ness of today's job action, Ho-
deen indicated that the HOA
may resort to more drastic ac-
tions in the future if continued
negotiations with the University
fail to produce a settlement.

The three-day "Who's in Control" Ann Arbor
Teach-In officially ended last night with a semi-
nar featuring such speakers as Jeremy Rifkin
speculating on the future of the United States and
the Third World.
Rifkin, a spokesman for the People's Bicen-
tennial Commission and noted theologian Wil-
liam Stringfellow called for the democratization
of corporate structures in an attempt to harness
the power that large corporations now wield.
"THERE'S 100 powers in the world right
now, and 36 of them are American corporations,"
Rifkin exclaimed. "You've been done in by
Colgate-Palmolive. But there's an alternative to
corporations - extend democratic principles to
the work place."
In response to the often voiced criticism that
democracy "takes too long" if used in business,
Rifkin cited the example of an insurance com-
pany in Washington.
"There's an insurance company in Washing-
ton -- it started with a few thousand dollars and
now handles millions. Everybody has one vote,
from the secretary to the president," he ex-

WASHINGTON-The House intelligence committee, voting
against the advice of its chairman, averted a confrontation with
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger by accepting a compromise
yesterday over a memorandum critical of his actions in the
Under the agreement, approved 8 to 5, an operation officer's
memo will be mixed in with paragraphs from other documents,

THE COMMITTEE had subpoenaed the memo, but Kissinger
said that submitting it verbatim might discourage other aides from
making candid recommendations.
Chairman Otis Pike (D-N.Y.), who joined with four of the
seven other Democrats on the 13-member panel in opposing the
resolution, warned that the vote might result in future intelligence
documents and facts from the administration "coming in a

POLITICAL OBSERVERS DIVIDED:

servers were divided yesterday
over whether President Ford's
stunning shakeup at the top
level of his administration had
helped or hurt his relations with
Congress and prospects for elec-
tion next year.
At the same time, however,
the sources said that Vice Presi-
dent Nelson Rockefeller with-

1976 ticket because he felt he

IN ANOTHER development,
Army Lieutenant General Daniel
Graham has resigned his post
as chief of the Defense Intelli-
gence Agency (DIA), govern-
ment sources said yesterday.
General Graham's resignation
