UHC election
What if they gave an election and nobody ran?
The University Housing Council (UHC) - a body
of students elected to represent dormitory resi-
dents to the Housing Office - came close to find-
ing out. Today is the last day to file as a candidate
in next week's UHC elections, and so far only
four people have put their names down for 11
empty positions. All candidates are running unop-
posed and no one has filed for the open seats from
the Campus district (West Quad, Barbour, New-
berry, the Law Quad, and Martha Cook), the Hill
district (Stockwell, Mosher-Jordan, and Couzens),
Baits, or the South Quad-Fletcher district. So if
you want your voice heard in the Housing Office,
hurry on down to SGC offices on the third floor
of the Union before 5 pm today.
New thrust at sex ed
The kiddies just might have sex education come
into their classrooms. Advocates of Wednesday's
defeated sex education bill said they will try again
next year to pass legislation permitting teaching
of birth control information. "This is a terrible
setback for thousands of kids in Michigan," la-
mented Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Arbor), chief
sponsor of the bill. Bursley vowed he'll re-intro-
duce a slightly different bill in January or Febru-
ary. The Michigan Senate axed the original bill
22 to 12 on Wednesday. C'mon, fellas, get with it.

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President Ford is almost cer-
tain to nominate a conservative or possibly a wo-
man to fill the Supreme Court vacancy caused
by the retirement of William Douglas.
The administration asked the American Bar
Association for advice yesterday on a replace-
ment for Douglas and promised the choice would
be made quickly but with great deliberation.
FORD HAS NOT yet set any special standards
for the nominee and has no time schedule for
making the appointment, Press Secretary Ron
Nessen said.
But the President once said in an interview
that he would not name a liberal should he have
to pick a successor to Douglas.
Ms. Ford has said she would try to persuade
her husband to nominate a woman.
Douglas, one of the great liberals to serve on
America's highest court, announced he was retir-

ing Wednesday because of ill health. He never
fully recovered from a stroke suffered last New
Year's Eve after a long history of heart trouble.
ATTY. GEN. Edward Levi sent a list of possi-
ble court nominees to the American Bar Asso-
ciation (ABA) for a review of their qualifica-
tions, Justice Department spokesman Robert Ha-
vel said. Havel said the list was prepared in
consultation with the White House, but he said
he could not disclose details.
Lawrence Walsh, president of the ABA, said its
Committee on Federal Judiciary has received
some names of orosnective nominees for review
but did not say how many names were received
or whether any women's names were on it.
In addition. the comnmitt A was invited to give
pddia il names fnr consideration.

CIJU clericals win
in bylaws dispute
A three-month bylaws dispute within the University clericals
union ended last night in a "Clericals for a Democratic Union"
(CDU) victory.
CDU won approval of four bylaws which tightly restrict the
power of local union officials, defeating the proposals of its
opposing faction, the Unity Caucus.

About 500 people rallied on the Diag at noon yesterday to pro-

The mood was somber and the largely Jewish crowd listened
