Biblical comparisons
"Maybe the President was a congressman too
long," said Presidential hopeful Ronald Reagan
in a interview with Time Magazine. "The presi-
dent has all the machinery, but I'd be happy
with the grass roots," said the former actor and
California Governor. He also stated that he didn't
think President Ford "Had been very successful.
If I decide to run, maybe there's a little David
and Goliath to this thing." The question is, who's
David and who's Goliath?

Law profs
react to
Justice William Douglas' resigna-
tion from the Supreme Court may
well mark the end of a liberal era,
several University 1 a w professors
agreed last night.
Should Ford appoint a conservative
to replace Douglas, the bench would
swing to the right, they said.
DOUGLAS drew praise as a "great
dissenter" and was described as the
"brightest" justice.
"It's too bad this happened while
Ford is president,' said Prof. Yale
Kamisar, a nationally recognized au-
thority on constitutional law. "I'm not
confident that the right person will be
appointed as a replacement.
"I'm sure he was hanging on for
just that reason,"Kamisar said. "I
would hope the president would ap-
point someone of distinction, without
regard to the person's politics."
DOUGLAS' position as a liberal on
the court was a crucial part of the
body's political make-up, Kamisar ex-
plained. "On the one hand there were
the four conservative Nixon apointees,
and on the other there were the three.

Departure may
shift Court's
liberal balance
By AP an4 Reuter
Supreme Court Justice William Douglas retired from
the Court yesterday because of ill health, ending a career
in which he served a record 36 years on the high court
and earned a reputation as a great liberal crusader.
Douglas' retirement opens to President Ford an ap-
pointment that could tip the balance of power on the
AMONG THOSE considered to be prospects for the
court appointment are four prominent Michigan figures:
Mary Coleman, a justice of the Michigan Supreme Court;
Sen. Robert Griffin, deputy Republican leader; and fed-
eral judge Cornelia Kennedy and former Rep. Martha
Griffiths, both of Detroit.
Douglas, 77, said he would leave the bench immedi-
ately because "I have been unable to shoulder my full
share of the burden." He suffered a stroke last Dec. 31.
He had been absent from the bench several times and
spent long periods in hospital since suffering a stroke
last New Yeark's Eve.
On the occasions he did make an appearance in the
court, wheeled into place on an office chair pushed by
two court attendants, he more than once nodded off
during the proceedings and it was obvious, the pace was
telling on him.
HE HAD SERVED on the court longer than any man
before. He had made his mark as a dissenter, a civil lib-
ertarian and a figure of controversy in his private life.
Twice there had been moves in the House to impeach
him as a justice-the most recent led by then-Rep. Gerald
Ford. Ford's charges included Douglas' association with
a foundation that was supported by a businessmen who
at one time had been in trouble with the government.
Ford also attacked D o u g l a s on the grounds of

PITTSBURGH-Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer indicated yesterday retaliatory action
could be taken against countries which helped
pass a United Nations resolution condemning
But he stressed in a news conference that no
decision had been made yet on such a step.
RESPONDING to a series of questions, Kissin-
ger deplored the anti-Israeli resolution adopted
by the General Assembly on Monday as "ex-
tremely unhelpful and highly irresponsible."
"The countries which voted for the resolution
have contributed to an international environment
that will be less helpful in settling the differences
in the Middle East," Kissinger said.
"Therefore, we will have to consider the vote
on an individual basis before deciding what
specific action we will take toward various
AT THE SAME time, he appeared to be trying
to blunt any drive to restrict U.S. participation
in the United Nations or to punish individual"
"It is important in the present world situation
to keep our eye on the fundamental issues that
must be solved," Kissinger said.
"We have to see the United Nations in some
perspective," Kissinger said. "We went through a
period in which the U.N. was described as the
best hope of mankind. That was exaggerated .. .

."WE MUST not now swing to the other extreme
of not realizing some of the benefits that the
U.N., with all of its failings, still has for the
United States."
Daniel Moynihan, U.S. ambassador to the
United Nations, struck the same- theme in a
television interview yesterday, saying, "We don't
want to get so mad about this thing that we
forget where our interests are."
Kissinger said a U.S. proposal for amnesty for
political prisoners in all countries is unrelated
to the U.N. campaign against Israel.
"We do not put forward fundamental pro-
grams in a fit of pique to punish other countries,"
he said.
THE WHITE HOUSE said Tuesday President
Ford condemned the U.N. action but was not
considering United States withdrawal from the
world body. The Senate later passed a resolution
urging consideration of the withdrawal.
Meanwhile in New York, most of the 32 nations
that abstained from voting on the General Assem-
bly resolution reacted sharply yesterday to
charges that they ducked a moral issue.
"WHAT MORAL issue?" snapped a diplomat
from a Southeast Asian country, who asked not
to be identified. He added, "If there were ever
a moral issue that concerned us, it was the war
in Indochina. Where was the United Nations

Kissinger: "We went
through a period in
w h i e h the U.N. was
described as the best
hope of mankind.
That was exagger-
ated. ..

Gov. George Wallace, with the
brash, vigorous, scolding voice
of earlier campaigns, issued a
call yesterday for middle Amer-
ica to launch a "political revolu-
tion" to carry him to the White
House in 1976.
Lively and at times nearly
shouting to the cheers of sup-
porters, Wallace vowed that
neither his paralysis nor his
foes in the Democratic party
will stop his fourth bid for the
"MY HEALTH is excellent
and I will be able to campaign
actively, and I don't care what

Woodcock to meet
disputing clericals
United Auto Workers (UAW) President Leonard Woodcock
has agreed to meet tomorrow with representatives from the Uni-
versity's clerical union in an attempt to resolve differences within
the newly formed UAW local, clerical Jean Jones said yesterday.
The meeting with Woodcock and several unamed UAW region-
al officers will include members of the local's former bargaining
team and an opposition caucus called Clericals for a Democratic
Union (CDU).
WOODCOCK'S attention was drawn to the dispute, it is specu-
lated, by a dues strike of CDU supporters and a CDU drive to
have the local withdraw from the UAW in the next election.
The former bargaining team and CDU are embroiled io a
bitter dispute over a set of bylaws up for membership approval
CDU is attempting to strike down provisions within the pro-
posed laws which they saw would give local officials fat salaries
and too much nower over the membershin.

clared in formally announcing
his candidacy for the Democrat
presidential nomination.
Wallace said the Democratic
party leadership has succumbed
to the "ultra-liberal exotic left."
But he disavowed any talk of
bolting the party to run as an
independent, as he did in 1968,
and, urged "a political revolu-
tion at the ballot box in the
primaries of 1976."
PRESIDENT Ford is the only
announced Republican candidate
but former California governor
Ronald Reagen, a conservative-
Republican, is expected to an-
nounce his candidacy soon.

yesterday voted down a con-
troversial proposal that would

ease in public high schools.
