Safety first?
Local chapter 1583 of the American Federation
of State, County and Municipal Employes
(AFSCME) filed a grievance against the University
Athletic Dept. yesterday charging that the depart-
ment has provided inadequate safety equipment,
unsafe laundry machines and hazardous saws and
emery wheels. Union Safety Committee Chairman
Tim Seguin says that "The union has brought these
safety hazards to the attention of both the Athletic
Department and the University's health and safety
representatives many times, but they haven't got-
ten the problems corrected to comply with the
state's safety standards. AFSCME representatives
reported that several accidents have occurred in
the past few years to employes of the Athletic
Department while working with the "questionable"
equipment. Following receipt of the union's com-
plaint, the state Bureau of Safety and Regulation
will conduct an on-site inspection of the alleged
safety hazards.

Bald duck
W. A. Wilson of rural Sligo, Ky., has a bald
duck she'd just love you to have. Poor little Soupy
was born with a mess of fuzz, but mysteriously
went Kojak-bald within a couple of weeks. Accord-
ing to Wilson, Soupy contracted a bad sunburn
during the summer and may freeze during the
long, hard winter. Neither she, nor a university of
Louisville professor can explain Soupy's premature
loss of feathers. So, Wilson has decided to give
Soupy up as a pet under one condition-if you want
him, make'sure he doesn't end up on the Thanks-
giving table.

Tuition blues
Medical school students from across the nation
are attempting to organize efforts to put a stop
to .astronomical tuition increases that have raised
csts as much as 50 per cent this year. Protests
have been organized at several schools including
the State University of New York at Buffalo, and
a group of medical school students has even filed
suit in an effort to prevent a fee increase at the
George Washington School of Medicine in Washing-
ton, D.C. Lawyers for the George Washington
students have appealed in the District of Columbia
Court of Appeals to reverse a lower court ruling
that rejected their claim that the school's tuition
hike was a breach of contract. They contend that
the statements in the school catalogue promised
only a $200 annual increase through 1979. Instead,
tuition increased by $1,800 to a total of $5,000
annually.

On the outside ...

By GORDON ATCHESON
U.S. Congressman Marvin Esch of Ann Arbor yesterday be-
came the first Republican to announce plans to run for the Senate
next year, as he pledged to reduce the impact of the federal gov-
ernment on the auto industry.
Esch told several hundred supporters gathered at the old
Second Ward Town Hall on Ashley St. that the Environmental
Protection Agency's auto emission standards have hamstrung the
industry, contributing to the state's high unemployment.
THE FIVE-TERM congressman added that the jobless "are
the nation's best resource" and that the best way to end abuse of
the welfare system "is to give a meaningful work experience."
The EPA's anti-pollution standards have prevented auto manu-
facturers from developing efficient, inexpensive cars to compete
with foreign compacts that have glutted the market recently, ac-
cording to Esch.
During a news conference following his speech, Esch sized up
some of his potential opponents.
"I DON'T anticipate any major opposition in the primary,"
Esch told reporters. "I'm moving ahead as if I already have the

nomination.'
University Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) has expressed
interest in the Republican nomination but would probably pose
little threat to Esch if he entered the race.
On the Democratic side, Congressman Donald Riegle of Flint
and James O'Hara of Utica have already declared their candi-
dacies for the seat now held by Sen. Philip Hart (D-Mich.).
HART WILL retire next year, after serving in the Senate for
18 years.
"I have been traveling across the state for about 10 months
and I have been well received," the 48-year-old Esch said, when
asked how he would fare against either state Attorney General
Frank Kelley or Secretary of State Richard Austin in the Novem-
ber election.
Austin and Kelley - both Democrats - are reportedly con-
sidering Senate bids.
A MODERATE Republican, Esch has spent 10 years in the
House representing a district combining large number of white
collar employes, auto assembly line workers, and college stu-
dents.

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger yes-

warning that S o v i e t in-
volvement in Angola is a
threat to detente.
Expanding on h i s new
stance against w h a t he
calls the Soviet Union's "in-
terventionist policy" in the
newly - independent nation,
Kissinger told a press con-
ference, "It is difficult to
reconcile this with the
principles of coexistence
that were signed in 1972."
EARLIER this month, Portu-
gal reinguished its control of
Angola after 500 years of co-
lonial rule.
Kissinger also announced he
may meet personally with So-
viet leaders next month in an
attempt to break the current
deadlock in the Strategic Arms
Limitation Talks (SALT).
Referringsto Angola, Kissinger
told a press conference, "Our
primary concern in thisdmatter
is to put an end to it, and to see
whether an African solution can
be found to an African prob-
lem."

Frats brighten holidays
food drive

By JAY LEVIN
There'll be turkey on the
tables of many needy city
families tomorrow courtesy of
two Thanksgiving D a y food
drives sponsored by black Uni-
versity fraternities.
Members of the Omega Psi
Phi and Kappa Alpha Psi frats
gathered their T u r k e y Day
goodies in different ways, but
all agreed it was well worth it.
"IT'S A SWEET feeling," said

Bill Hunter of Kappa Alpha Psi,
who along with their female
"Kappa Kitten" affiliates began
distribution of baskets last night.
Kappa members have scoured
the city and campus in search of
edible donations, and according
to Hunter, folks around here
have a lot of heart.
"The people have been very
generou.s," said Hunter
"They've donated s t u f f very
freely and have been more than

Fromme jury asks
for new instructions
By AP and Reuter
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The jury in fthe Lynette "Squeaky"
Fromme trial asked for new instructions yesterday, indicating it
probably is deadlocked on the question of whether she tried to
assassinate President Ford.
U.S. District Court Judge Thomas MacBride, responding to the
panel's request for help, modified his instructions to allow the jury
to consider a lesser charge of assault immediately.
UNDER THE attempted assassination charge, the 27-year-old
Manson family cultist could have been sentenced to life imprison-
ment, but the maximum for assault is 10 years.
In his instructions, the judge said that they must either find
Fromme guilty or innocent on the attempted assassination charge

glad to accommodate us. We're
really amazed at the reception
we've received."
THE SOCIAL service frat has
made a yearly tradition of
brightening Thanksgiving f o r
economically troubled families
throughout the community.
Hunter estimates at least 12
homes will receive baskets by
tomorrow.
Earlier yesterday, members
of Omega Psi Phi service frat
delivered ten abundantly stocked
baskets to the Second Baptist
Church on Fifth and Beakes
Streets for distribution.
The contents of the red, green
and yellow wrapped parcels
were acquired t h r o u g h the
drive's contributions and funds
raised Thursday from a Psi Phi-
sponsored dance at South Quad.
Admission included a 54c fee
and donation of certain kinds of
canned or boxed goods.
"IT WAS really nice-people
were bringing two and three
items with them," said Psi Phi
member Kevin White of the
dance's success. The frat pur-
chased ten 16-19 pound gobblers
with the dance's proceeds and
additional student contributions.

50 Chicano students protest
hiring, enrollment policies

THE MANY FACES of Henry Kissinger are evident as he
responds to questions at yesterday's press conference in
Detroit.

By JIM FINKELSTEIN
An angry crowd of about 50 Chicano students
picketed the School of Social Work yesterday,
protesting the University's alleged non-compliance
with the Affirmative Action program, particularly
with regard to Chicanos.
The noon rally, held at the Huron St. entrance
to the Frieze Bldg., was organized by "Traba-
jadores de La Raza," a group of Chicano social
work students.
THE PROTESTORS were particularly upset
with a recent School of Social Work decision to
postpone the rehiring of an asst. director of ad-
missions and financial aid, a position formerly

held by a Chicano.
Dolores Estrada, chairwoman of the group,
said this position is "strategically crucial for
Chicanos and other minorities at the School of
Social Work."
But Dean Phillip Fellin denied any wrong-
doing in the hiring freeze.
"My position is to try to see if we can take
care of the tasks of that position without having
to rehire anyone for it," he said. "We feel it's
appropriate to take some time in evaluating the
need for a full-time administrator in that position,
in light of the present uncertainty about the
budget."

"You have indicated to me,"

talking about the lesser offense
you are having difficulty."
