Latest Deadline in the State
Vol. LXXXVI, No. 68
Ann Arbor, Michigan-Friday, November 21, 1975
Student points toy gun at Reagan
Come to Ann Arbor,
The Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce yester-
day unveiled a new visitors bureau to attract tour-
ists and business conferences to the city. The pro-
gram revolves around a PR campaign that pushes
the dope capital of the midwest as the ideal con-
ference sight in central Michigan. But perhaps the
most helpful gimmick - for both visitors and lo-
cals - will be an events hotline that provides a
list of goings on about town. The 24-hour number
will be in operation shortly. Heading up the entire
project is David Scully, who ironically graduated
from Michigan State University. That's a little
better than being a Buckeye, we figure.
Tickets for the annual Dinner Meeting of the
University's Nurses Alumni Association go on sale
today. The dinner will be De'c. 2, and will be held
at the Zal Gaz Grotto Club at 6:30 p.m. The cost is
$5.50 per person. Reservations will be accepted
until Nov. 30, and can be sent to Nancy Nelson
at 2311 Eton, Ann Arbor 48103. Bon appetit.
. ..have no homogeneous theme for today .. .
They kick off with a panel discussion on "The
Press and Government: Problems of Political Re-
porting." John Puravs of the Saginaw News,
Remer Tyson of the Detroit Free Press, and Wil-
liam Meek, a former Free Press reporter, will
appear. This goes down at 3:00 in the Assembly
Hall of Rackham . .. Rep. Marvin Esch speaks at
3 p.m. in Aud. C, Angell Hall . . . Butler House in

Grade B drivel? All featured Ronald Reagan, the
pretty-boy movie star, who has now set his sights
on the biggest Oscar of them all. Milton Gross,

She nips him on the arm." Yes, Meg and Hatari
(their last names have been withheld - presum-
ably at the behest of their parents) are exhibiting
normal courting habits in this permissive era. It's
none of this quick-between-the-sheets stuff with
them. Meg is 13-years-old, and her pal Hatari is 12.
Both are residents of Cincinnatti, Ohio. The blush-
ing couple has been together for two glorious and
fun-filled weeks. but one observer, Pep "Peeping
Tom" Wilson, noted, "I don't think anything real-
ly exciting has happened yet. Right now they're
in a get-acquainted stage - a cautious courtship."
Meg nearly died of a broken heart when her boy-
friend died this past summer in Tampa, Fla. But
her change of location and hot times with Hatari
seem to be just what the doctor ordered to renew
her high spirits. Oh, by the way, Meg and Hatari
U.S. Senator Robert Griffin (R-Mich.) yesterday
urged the Senate to appoint a special committee
to investigate the disappearance of former Team-
sters President James Hoffa who flew the coop or
had his coop flown for him last July. Griffin said
the special panel should also look into allegations
that the union's pension fund has been misused.
"The mystery of what happened to Jimmy is in-
triguing," Griffin said. "But even more import-
ant is the question: why?" That's what a lot of
people would like to know.

MIAMI - A 20-year-old college student was beaten to the
ground by Secret Service agents yesterday when he pointed a toy
gun at Ronald Reagan just six hours after the former California
Governor announced a bid for the presidency.
The agents had been appointed to guard Reagan yesterday just
after he made his announcement that he would contest President
Ford for the Republican presidential nomination.
THEY were called into action on Reagan's first campaign
stop, a two-hour visit to Miami.
Reagan had just finished a campaign speech and was shaking
hands with the crowd when Michael Carvin pulled a plastic pistol
out and pointed it at him, Secret Service agents said.
Four Secret Service agents leaped at him, knocked him to
the ground and then dragged him through a clump of bushes to a
nearby motel for questioning.
A SECRET Service spokesman said he would be charged to-
morrow with assaulting a federal officer and possibly other
Reagan flew to Miami after formally announcing his White
House candidacy in Washington-the city where, he said, many
of the nation's woes are being generated by a federal govern-
ment that is too big but "powerless to solve problems anymore."
That was the theme of his Miami speech to about 400 sup-
porters in the ballroom of the Ramada Inn.
REAGAN was pulled away from Carvin by Secret Service
agents and, in the process, dragged to the ground momentarily.
But he was smiling and did not appear shaken when agents led
him upstairs to a hotel room.
"I feel fine," he said later at a news conference. ". . I just
thought someone had fallen down. It seems the man pulled out a
Reagan declined in announcing his candidacy to criticize
Ford directly, declaring his own ideas are "in the mainstream
of the thinking of the people of this country." He said he had
dismissed in his own mind the prospect of being knocked from
the GOP race in early primaries.
FOLLOWING the rally in Miami the one-time movie star flew
to Manchester, New Hampshire, and then planned to head today
for Charlotte, North Carolina and Chicago and return to a "home-
coming celebration" rally at the Hollywood Burbank Airport out-
side Los Angeles.
Reagan said he would either campaign in or be represented
in all 30 GOP primaries but declined to predict victory pledging
only "to do my best to win".
He made it clear he will build his campaign around a chal-
lenge to a federal government that he charged has become "more
intrusive, more coercive, more meddlesome, and less effective
in dealing with the energy problem and a weakening defense.
"IN MY opinion," Reagan declared, "the root of these prob-
lems lies right here - in Washington, D. C. Our nation's capital
has become the seat of a "buddy" system that functions for its
own benefit - increasingly insensitive to the needs of the Ameri-
can worker who supports it with his taxes."
And he said "it is difficult to find leaders who are independent
of the forces that have brought us to our problems - the Con-
gress, the bureaucracy, the lobbyists, big business and big labor."
CIA hatche Castro death plot
By JIM TOBIN
The Michigan Department -of Corrections is developing plans
for a new prison in nearby Pittsfield Township which officials hope
will help accommodate the state's burgeoning prison population.
The Department hqd originally intended to build -a "reception-
diagnostic" center at the 180-acre site, but has instead opted to
construct a facility housing more long-term convicts.
CURRENTLY, all state prisoners are housed at the over-
crowded reception center at Jackson State Prison before being
transferred to other penitentiaries to serve out their terms.
Officials saw the need for a new facility and decided to build
it in the southwestern part of the state, which produces roughly

DEPUTY Director of the De-
partment of Corrections Paul
Chase expressed worries con-
cerning the crowding in state
prisons. He said the state con-
vict population - currently es-
timated at 10,600 - may rise
to 12,500 within two years.
"The pressure is on us now
for beds," he 'declared.
"There's an economic squeeze.

ity is now underway, and Chase
said he expectstarchitects to
begin designing the building in

will be signed by the end of
next summer and construction

months will begin in the fall.

posed Pittsfield prison will

Sp iitmount s for OSU cla
By JODI DIMICK
Nearly 3,000 avid football fans braved the cold,
rainy weather last night to attend a pep rally
held at Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, in an-
ticipation of tomorrow's Ohio State game.
With the Michigan Pep Band and a contingent
of cheerleaders to egg them on, the crowd gen-
erated a plethora of excitement as they kicked
the rally off with a rousing rendition of the Mich-
igan Fight Song.
THE ENTHUSIASM heightened as the group
shouted such slogans as, "Fuck the Bucks!" "Go
Blue" and "We want Bo!"
And an elated Coach Bo Schembechler made
an appearance before the frenzied assemblage.
"I really feel," he said of the rally, "that this
is the greatest thing that has happened to me
since I've been at Michigan."
THE CELEBRATED coach noted that the foot-
ball team has "worked hard this week," and
promised, "We're going to be con

REGENTS HEAR MINORITY REPORT
Black enrollment falls
By BILL TURQUE
The Board of Regents was
told yesterday that black en-
rollment remains slightly under
seven per cent of all students
this year, still short of the 10
per cent total the University
pledged to meet by the fall of
In a report made public ear-
lier this week, Associate Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Richard English told the Board
that black enrollment on this
eral government as U. S. citi-
zens who are black, Oriental,
or native American, or have
"Our conclusion," said Eng-
lish, "is that the University of
Michigan compares favorably
with other institutions in the
state with respect to minority
enrollment." The report shows
that of the 13 four-year institu-
tions in the state, Wayne State
University has the highest per
cent of minority enrollment,
He attributed this decline to
"serious competition with other
schools," particularly "urban
public institutions such as
George Goodman, director of
the University's Opportunity
Program, which recruits and
counsels minority students from
disadvantaged backgrounds, told
the Board that more of an ef-
fort was needed on the faculty
level to make the University
more viable for minorities.
