Favorable rays
Yesterday's sunny weather accounted for a con-
siderable voter turnout in the SGC/UHC elections.
According to elections consultant Tim O'Neill, "It
was fairly heavy; we had about 1,000 people." He
stated that, if "the weather holds out," last
spring's vofer total of 2,600 should be surpassed.
SGC elections end on Thursday.
Bottoms up
State Rep. PerryBullard (D-Ann Arbor) has in-
troduced legislation that will make it easier for
smaller restaurants to get liquor licenses. Bullard
says the present restriction of one license per 1,500
residents in a community hurts small restaurants
-particularly those specializing in foreign foods.
The measure pertains only to eateries and not to
bars. "Since social drinking with dinner is a deep-
ly entrenched custom in American culture, a qual-
ity restaurant which cannot offer wine or before
dinner drinks is simply not considered by many
people when they choose a restaurant," says Bul-
lard. We'll drink to that . .. or just about anything
Mightly costly
Robert and Michael Meeropol, sons of the con-
victed atomic bomb spies Julius and Ethel Rosen-
berg, were told Monday that the FBI will charge
them $23,451 to obtain nearly 30,000 pages of infor-
mation the agency has about their parents. Robert,
a University grad, and Michael have sued under
the Freedom of Information Act to get the mater-
ial on their parents, who were executed in 1953 as
spies. Under the act, government agencies can
charge a search and copying fee for information
requested by citizens. The Meeropols, who have
taken the name of their adoptive parents, have
been trying to prove that the Rosenbergs were
wrongly convicted of espionage.

Back in town
Accompanied by three FBI agents, Eldridge
Cleaver, the black radical, returned to the United
States yesterday from Paris - after seven years
on the run. Cleaver, 39, faced immediate arrest
when he arrived in New York, but has resigned
himself to going to prison, his wife said. Cleaver
told reporters he has perceived a "different mood"
in the country which will allow him to get a fair
trial on charges that he violated parole and on a
grand jury indictment' concerning a 1966 shoot-out
in which two police officers were injured. Cleaver
has lived in Cuba, Algeria, and France since he
left the United States in 1968.

hundred narking meters in retaliation for a recent
ticket-writing snree by officers. "They got 400 to
500 meters, including a bunch in front of police
headuarters," one officer said. The New World
Liberation Front is crrently under investigation

2 -men rob local bn

The Plymouth Road branch of the Ann Arbor
Bank near the University's North Campus was
robbed of an estimated $70,000 yesterday after-
noon - the latest in an unprecedented rash of
city bank robberies.
Two men held up the bank at gunpoint, obtain-
ed a "large sum" of money according to city
police, then fled in a small red car which was
found a short time later at the nearby Plymouth
THE GETAWAY car, said a police official, was
reported stolen in Florida.
The robbery was the 18th in the Ann Arbor
area this year and the sixth in the last seven
weeks. Police are seeking a dark-haired white
male who has appeared in photographs made by
security cameras at several of the heists.
However, the suspects in yesterday's robbery
were both identified as black.

Area bank officials are likely to watch the
investigation of yesterday's hold-up closely. The
robbery was the first to occur since area banks
instituted a citizen action reward program early
this month in cooperation with city, state, and
federal police.
THE PROGRAM will pay up to $1,000 for in-
formation leading to the arrest of a robbery
Police officials are careful to emphasize that
the value of tips leading to arrests will be
evaluated by a group of police and bank offic-
ials and will be rewarded accordingly.
Not all tips will be rewarded with the full
$1,000 reward. The names of all informants will
be held in confidence.

Pair may not face state charges

The two local men being held
on federal extortion charges in
connection with the Nov. 10 kid-
napping of a General Motors' ex-
ecutive's son may not have to
face state kidnapping charges.
The Oakland County Prose-
cutor's office, which withdrew
from the case last week at the
request of the FBI, did not file
charges yesterday, and may de-
cide not to file them at all.
As a result,' federal kidnap-
ping charges have been filed
against the pair. , However, it is
generally more difficult to get

a conviction under federal
charges because it must then
be proven that the suspected
'kidnappers used extortion to in-
terfere with inter-state com-
"WE ARE still trying to de-
cide whether or not to prose-

The prosecution's started last
Friday when the FBI asked the
Oakland county officials to drop
the case. Thompson claims

that the FBI threatened to with-
draw unless it was allowed to
make the arrest on federal war-
"ONCE THE FBI decided that
they wanted us off the case we
withdrew," said Thompson.
"Our job is to honor the deci-
sion made by the federal au-
thorities," he added. "They
wanted to run the show and we
let them."
After. calling off the local au-
thorities last Friday, the FBI ar-
rested Wilson and Williams on
charges of extortion, a federal
chargethat carries a maximum
sentence of 20 years in prison

U' goof

A recent blunder by the .University Grounds Depart-
ment has forced them to tear up a costly section of
sidewalk that had been put in only a month ago.
The scene of the gaffe is a 40-square-yard patch of
what used to be grass, located in front of the Uni-
versity Extensions Service Building on Maynard Street
near William.
A FEW WEEKS ago, the Grounds Department suc-
cessfully eradicated the patch of greenery, leaving 40
square yards of gleaming white concrete.
