Enchanting ears
Now hear this: the Koss headphone company is
conducting a big prize give-away contest, and if
you'll just lend us an ear for a moment we'll ex-
plain the off-beat entry system. It doesn't require
that you wax eloquent in 25 words or less on why
you deserve the $1,000 grand prize. What the con-
test organizers ask is that you send in a reason-
able facsimile of your ear. That's right, you heard
it, they want to choose the most beautiful ear
in town. Just draw a picture of your aural organ,
or press an ink pad against your ear and print it
on a card, and bring your entry in to Campus
Broadcasting at 530 SAB. The ear prints will be
sent off to Koss for the grand prize drawing to
be held late this month, after local radio stations
WCBN and WRCN conduct drawings for free sets
of head phones. The deadline for entries is Novem-
ber 15, so enter early.
Robbery rash
Responding to a rash of bank robberies in re-
cent months, banks in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti
area have begun this week a citizen action reward
program in cooperation with local, state, and fed-
eral police. There have been 17 robberies this
year, five in October alone. The reward program
will pay up to $1,000, depending on the value of the
information, to anyone providing a tip which leads
to the arrest of a suspect. The identity of all tip-
sters willbe held in confidence, as will the amount
of any rewards.
Union saved
Marquette voters crushed a ballot proposal that
the Upper Peninsula secede from the rest of
Michigan and become a 51st state. It was a sharp
set-back for the go-it-alone advocates who have
been campaigning for a separate state to be called
Superior. But luckily for Michigan, Marquette vot-
ers decided the idea was ludicrous and turned it
down with over a 2-1 margin. Whew.

Kiss and make better
While New York City administrators are gnash-
ing their teeth over the city's financial problems,
two loving residents have vowed to at least pay lip
service to the problem. In less than..two hours of
puckering up on Wednesday, New Yorkers bought
$80 worth of kisses from a couple of sidewalk
vendors. College student Jace Kaufman, 20, and
actor Stan Watin, sold kisses for 25c, 50c and $1.
The cheaest smooch was a "continental on the
hand." a half dollar ho' ht a sisterly kiss on the
cheek, and fof a dollar, love-starred nassersby

Cracking up
The Liberty Bell is not only cracked but might be
America's most flawed treasure. "Scientifically

speaking, it's a piece of junk," says Philadelnhia
metallirgist Mike Modes, who spent an entire night
last week making "radiograph" pictures (similar
to x-rays) of the nation's symbol of freedom. It
was the first time anyone has examined the me-
tallic strircture of the big bell; and it showed that
the famous crack is only one of dozens of defects.
Modes, who works for Universal Technical Testing
Laboratorv Inc.. wanted to see if the bell is too
brittle to he carried next month from Tndenen-
da-nce N-all to a new disnlav center across the

withdrawal from race

WASHINGTON ({-Vice President
Nelson Rockefeller said yesterday he
withdrew from President Ford's 1976
ticket to spare Ford from Republican
"party squabbles" that were compli-
cating his campaign against the im-
pending challenge from Ronald Rea-
Rockefeller told a nationally
broadcast news conference that Ford
is "my candidate" for 1976 but indi-
cated he disagrees with the assess-
ment by the President's campaign
managers that his presence on the
ticket would damage Ford.
THREE times in the half-hour session,
Rockefeller refused to rule out the prospect
he would seek the presidency if Ford's
campaign falters in the early 1976 primar-
ies. He called that possibility "specula-
tion I have not made."
When a reporter noted that he had been

trying to attain the presidency since he
won the first of four terms as New York
governor in 1958, Rockefeller smiled and
declared "I have to say I'm closer right
now that I ever have been."
And he added that "I wouldn't have ac-
cepted the vice presidency if I hadn't been
willing to take the presidency should, God
forbid, something happen to the President.
"SO I'M not going to kid you that I came
down here with no thought of the presi-
dency," he said.
Rockefeller said that policy disagree-
ments with Ford "were not the basic ele-
ments" in the decision to withdraw which
he disclosed in a letter to Ford Monday.
But he indicated some disapproval with
the President's increasingly conservative
course by declaring the best way for the
GOP to be effective is "in the center" of
the political spectrum.
The 67-year-old Rockefeller said that
when he accepted the vice presidency, "I

didn't come down here to get caught up in
party squabbles, which only make it more
difficult for the President in a very diffi-
cult time.
"I CAME here to help him and not com-
plicate his life," Rockefeller added. The
problem, he said, "first began to come up
in sharp focus" when Howard "Bo" Calla-
way, the President's campaign manager,
told reporters that he was having difficulty
winning conservative backing for Ford be-
cause of Rockefeller and that many Repub-
licans thought the President should have a
younger running mate.
Although he said conservatives constitute
only "a minority of a minority," Rockefel-
ler acknowledged their opposition was "ex-
actly the reason" for his decision to with-
"The only wav I could take the issue out
was me - was to write the letter,"
he said, making clear Ford made no ef-
fort to persuade him to stay.

Protest march
enters Spanisb
buffer zone

Fiddle riffs
Local violinist Dick Solberg coaxes endearing strains out of his fiddle, on the sidewalk in front of the Maynard Street parking
structure. That's proof that not all of Ann Arbor's out-of-door musical interludes take place on the Diag.

Spanish Sahara - Tens of thou-
sands of Moroccans under a
forest of red flags, chanting
glory to Allah, launched a peace-
ful human wave assault on the
Spanish Sahara yesterday.
They treked more than five
miles into the disputed, mineral-
rich territory through blinding
sand storms under a baking
desert sun.
MEANWHILE, the United Na-
tions Security Council called
unanimously on Morocco im-
mediately to withdraw all the
participants in the march.
The council also deplored "the
holding of the march."
The resolution, worked out in
i n t e n s e private consultations,
was approved by consensus.
IT CALLED on Morocco and
all the otheruparties involved to
cooperate fully with U.N. Sec-
retary-General Kurt Waldheim
in the fulfillment of his man-
date to try to resolve the crisis.
Speaking after the text was
a d o p t e d, Waldheim said he
would continue his efforts. The
situation was very serious and
grave, he said.
Spain informed the Security
Council last night that Morocco
had served notice that the ci-
) vilian march into Spanish Ha-
hara would continue tomorrow
unless Madrid agreed to nego-
tiate a transfer of sovereignty
to Morocco.
ey QUOTING f r o m information
-p, which he said had been re-
ceived by the Spanish embassy
inRabat, the Spanish delegate,
°s- Antonio Elias, said Morocco had
?a- stated that the halting of the
ot, march at the Spanish defense
or- line was impossible.
Throughout the march Spanish
helicopters and old propeller-
he driven fighters buzzed low over
nt, the sea of unarmed volunteers-
ef- including hundreds of Moroccan
A peasant women and three young
at Americans carrying a huge Mo-
roccan flag-but took no aggres-
as sive action. Moroccan helicop-
ne ters and light planes circled the
in Spanish aircraft but there were
no encounters.

In scenes reminiscent of a
biblical epic, the marchers -
preceded by 10 men with bayo-
nets to probe for mines-walked
for three hours to a point just
four kilometers (2.5 miles) from
what the Spanish call a "dissua-
sion line" bearing alleged mine-
fields, barbed wire and heavy
armored units. A senior Moroc-
can police officer with the
march said: "We will stay here
overnight, and tomorrow morn-
ing we will see."
King Hassan II of Morocco time
to pursue diplomatic efforts to
ensure the march reaches the
Spanish Sahara capital of El
Aaiun. Hassan had originally
said he would lead the march,
'The Moroccan gov-
ernment foresaw and
did not exclude t h e
possibility of confron-
tations between the
marchers and Spanish

but Thursday he remained at
his command post in Agadir,
T h e Moroccan government
foresaw and did not exclude the
possibility of confrontations be-
tween the marchers and Spanish
forces, involving a large number
of casualties, if Spain did not
accept immediately the proposal
to negotiate, Elias said at the
If these confrontations occur-
red, it would be very difficult
for the Moroccan armed forces
not to intervene. In that case
there would be a "situation of
belligerency between Spain and


Progress seen in hospital talksi

Intern and resident physicians at Univer-
sity Hospital appeared to be making some
progress last night toward a resolution of
their contract dispute with the University.
But according to Dr. Eric Hodeen, presi-
dent of the House Officers Association (HO-
A), which represents the doctors, the two
parties "have not reached a settlement
TODAY MARKED the second day of
picketing and administrative slowdown by
HOA members.
Much of the bargaining time was spent
discussing patient care improvements, an
issue which the doctors contend is the most
crucial in the dispute. HOA argues that the
quality of patient care at the Hospital has
suffered because doctors are often forced

to perform technical duties in order to
compensate for a shortage of technical per-
Though Hodeen declined to comment on
the specifics of the negotiations, he did say
that "some movement" had been made by
both sides toward an agreement.
DURING THE day, HOA's protest action
continued but the number of picketing doc-
tors dwindled and their neglect of cer-
tain administrative duties was termed
largely ineffectual by Hospital administra-
However, one resident in psychiatry
claimed that the small picket lines were
hardly accurate indicators of support for
the protest among doctors. In fact, some
doctors contend that the picket lines were
visible evidence of the HOA's "overwork"

"Some of the interns work 100 hours p
week," explained one HOA member. "Th
don't have enough time to eat and slee
much less walk on a picket line."
SOME DOCTORS working inside the H
pital continued to avoid charging their p
tients for medical services. This did ni
however, interfere with the delivery of n
mal health care services.
According to one administrator in t
Hospital's out-patient billing departmer
the paperwork slowdown had had little t
feet on the department's operations.
University spokesman said yesterday th
"the clinics are operating pretty much
they usually do," and he added that son
clericals "were taking up the slack"
the patient billing department.

Students wait in line
for CRISP... again
The University's CRISP system was responsible for deja vu
yesterday as long lines of impatient, disgruntled students packed
the central corridor of Angell Hall waiting to receive their regis-
tration appointment cards.
