Alone again no more
Students at University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio
followed Ann Arbor's lead. They went to the polls
Tuesday, and voted into law an ordinance which
reduces the penalty for "casual" marijuana to the
level of a parking ticket. (Sound familiar?) Despite
the efforts of the city solicitor, the city council, the
board of elections and the county prosecutor, the
ordinance - $5 fine for possession - passed 3513
to 2120. Oxford also passed a law legalizing the
sale of hard liquor. Before Tuesday, the only alco-
hol sold in that tiny town was 3.2 beer. Now, any-
one over the age of 18 can buy the real stuff at the
corner grocery store. Just goes to show you can't
keep a good thing down.
Deadlocked
Philadelphians elected a dead man to city council
this week. Francis O'Donnell, 55, died of a heart
attack last Thursday while seeking reelection as a
council-man-at-large. And on Tuesday he was
elected. Though city administrators knew his name
was on the ballot (and that he had died) there
wasn't enough time to change all the voting ma-
chines in the city. They say that more dead peo-
ple vote in Chicago than any other city, but at
least they don't vote for dead politicians.
Marty Mouse
Marty the mouse, who gained fame and fortune
because of his love of marijuana, died yesterday.
The four-inch, gray-brown rodent was just your
run-of-the-mill field mouse until last Christmas
when he led a San Jose police department on a
wild mouse chase. Marty conducted nightly raids
on the marijuana stash the department used for
evidence. Finally, the intrepid law officers caught
him when they used the stuff he loved so much for
bait. But instead of pressing charges, they sent
Marty to the University of California to aid in
studies on marijuana. Later he was installed as a
police mascot, and lived the life of a king-without
marijuana.

Jenny has a unique talent. Thanks to a friend
she met in her youth, the combination shephard-

to prove it. When Jenny was a puppy, her friend,
a d'trrsticated squirrel who lived in San Fran-
cisco's Golden Gate Park, taught her to climb.
N-w She can walk along branches as high as forty
feet off the ground. When a policeman saw her
rprched high above his head, he instructed her
owner, Jerrv Gerbracht. to get her a permit from
th Parks dena., which he did. So if you're ever

Preferential voting wins court test
Republicans may appeal judge's decision

By ROB MEACHUM
The hotly contested preferential voting
(PV) system used in last April's mayoral
race was yesterday ruled constitutional by
visiting Cir .uit Court Judge James Fleming
-some five months after the (case went to
court becausu of a Republican challenge.
But the fibal chapter in the long-standing
mayoral electon feud between the local
GOP and Denocra-l has yet to be written,
according to sourcs within both parties.
"I'M SURE we haven't heard the end of
it," said William Gudenau, head of the local
Republican party. An appeal to the State
Court of Appeals, he said, "is not definite"
because that decision "is up to the entire

city committee."
But Mayor Albert Wheeler contended that
an appeal is "an option that they have, but
they'll have a hell of a time, considering
what the judge said in his opinion."
"He addressed every issue that they
raised, took all of their arguments-and
negated them," the mayor commented. "If
they have any legal brains, any political
brains at all, they won't do it," he con-
tinued, "but they've done some stupid
things before, maybe they'll do some more."
GUDENAU said that the verdict was
"pretty 'much what I expected, considering
the fact that he (Judge Fleming) waited so
long."

Under the city's unique and confusing
system, each voter was given three choices
for mayor. Since none of the three candi-
dates received a clear majority, Human
Rights Party (HRP) candidate Carol Ernst
-who received the fewest votes-was elimi-
nated and her second choice votes redis-
tributed among the other two candidates:
incumbent Republican James Stephenson
and the Democrat Wheeler.
Because of this redistribution, Wheeler
squeezed past Stephenson by a mere 121
votes.
AND THAT'S when the struggle began.

'U' lilies
budgeting
decision
By DAVID WEINBERG
The state Supreme Court's
recent decision to uphold the
"big three" universities' au-
tonomy over their budgets has
been hailed statewide as a posi-
tive and important decision.
All sides apparently agree
that the real message of last
week's case is that the univer-
sities, legislature and State
Board of Education must coop-
erate if there is to be any long
term harmony between them.
IN A JOINT stateMent issued
yesterday, the University of
Michigan, Michigan State Uni-
versity and Wayne State Uni-
versity officials said: "We are
hopeful that the decision will
assist the Universities and the
legislature in continuing their
cooperative working relation-
ships."
The university officials also
expressed their approval that
the State Board of Education
would remain purely advisory

Colby to stay
at CAuntil1
Bush, okayed
WASHINGTON OP-CIA Director William Colby plans
to stay on until his successor is confirmed, and it also
was learned yesterday that William Hyland, the State
Department's intelligence chief, is moving over to the
National Security Council as deputy director.
Colby, fired by President Ford last Sunday, agreed
to stay on through Senate confirmation hearings for
George Bush with the understanding from the White
House that his authority would remain complete in that
interim period, presidential Press Secretary Ron Nessen
said.
HYLAND'S appointment as deputy to Air Force Lt. Gen. Brent
Scowcroft means the two top men at the council are proteges of
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

Hospital
By TOM ALLEN
University negotiators and Hospital in-
terns and residents failed to reach a con-
tract accord last night after three hours of
bargaining.
The bargaining session between the Uni-
versity and the House Officers Association
(HOA), which represents interns and resi-
dents, threatened to continue into the early
morning hours.
A SMALL group of doctors picketed out-
side University Hospital yesterday morn-
ing in an effort to dramatize their demands.
They are asking that provisions be made
to improve the quality of patient care at
the hospital.
Doctors inside the hospital protested the'
contract dispute by neglecting some admin-
istrative duties.
During a brief break from the bargaining
table late last night HOA president Eric
Hodeen said that no decision had been
reached. He said he could not predict
whether a settlement would be hammered
out before morning.
"IT'S GOING to be a long night," Hodeen
said.

Meanwhile interns and residents remained
on the job, performing health care services
as usual. However, they refused to bill
patients for medical services, a duty they
,ormally perform.
The University conceded the administra-
tive slowdown has had "some effect" on
hospital operations. But University spokes-
man Joseph 0 w s 1 e y indicated clerical
changes were compensating for the doctor's
action and that normal billing operations
were continuing.
IN A STATEMENT released yesterday
morning, HOA cited "improved quality of
patient care and greater opportunities for
women and minorities" as the "key issues"
among those still unresolved after three
months of contract negotiations with the
University.
In addition to the patient care and affir-
mative action requests, the HOA is asking
for more intern and resident involvement
in hospital decision-making, and a 12 per
cent salary increase (the 'U' has offered
six per cent).
According to Dr. Barry Carlton, chairman
of the HOA bargaining committee, "wages

are not a major issue." He went on to say
that the HOA "would be willing to settle
for less money if the University will put
part of the difference in a Patient Care
Fund, which Association members would
direct."
THE PATIENT Care Fund would be used
to purchase hot meal carts, and to hire
additional personnel for x-ray, blood-draw-
ing, and intravenous teams - personnel
which the HOA feels are sorely needed at
the facility.
As of now, interns and residents are fre-
quently responsible for the above-mentioned
technical duties. HOA members contend
that this responsibility often prevents them
from affording high quality health care to
their patients.
"Patient care at the University Hospital,"
Hodeen continued, "simply does not live up
to the standards that the public deserves
and expects."
SINCE SOME of the doctors work over
100 hours per week, "overwork" is a promi-
nent HOA grievance. They have requested

remain on the job after meeting
with Ford in the Oval Office.
No date was set for the
changeover, but it was under-
stood Bush would need time to
return from the Chinese liaison
office in Peking and undergo
Senate confirmation hearings.
Nessen predicted Bush would be
"overwhelmingly confirmed."
SEN. FRANK Church (D-Ida-
ho), chairman of the Senate in-
telligence committee, and sev-
eral CIA officials have said
they are worried about Bush's
political background.
In the meantime Nessen said
Colby "will have the full author-
ity that he has always had at
the agency," and will continue
working with congressional com-
mittees probing the Central In-
telligence Agency.

WASHINGTON - Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat accused
the United States yesterday of
neglect and defiance on the Pal-

extremism.
Sadat left with a pledge from
President Ford that the United
States will try to open negotia-
tions between Syria and Israel
on a new disengagement pact
for the Golan Heights.
"THE aggrieved cannot be
expected to wait long," he told
a joint meeting of the House and

CHICAGO 0?)-After three decades of near misses, Brenda
Starr is getting married.
Will it be a blissful relationship for the forever 23-year-old
woman reporter and her elusive mystery man, Basil St.
John?
DON'T COUNT on it, says Dale Messick, creator of the
redhaired, long-lashed La Starr, whose comic strip foibles
are syndicated in about 100 newspapers from South Dakota
to Chile.
Brenda and St. John, eyepatch and all, will finally say
"I do" on Jan. 15, said Messick.
"When people ask me 'Why should Brenda get married?'
I answer 'Why not?' I've been repeating myself for years,
I needed something new," said Messick, who has dyed her
hairito rmatch Bire~nda's.
