And here's another chapter in the never-ending
quest for employment. Local barbers have wit-
nessed a considerable upsurge in business as job
interviewers begin to invade the sleeping college
community. "The interview haircut trend contin-
ues till the end of February," says Jerry Erikson,
a hair cutter at the Coach and Four on State
Street. "I must have taken five pounds of hair
off one guy." Erikson said yesterday's fare in-
cluded three beards among other fallen locks, and
he also claims holidays are a big time for ear
exposing as college kiddies try to impress the
folks. The barbers in Nickels Arcade were more
subdued in their evaluation. "I usually don't in-
quire why they want their hair cut," said one
barber. "They want to look better, self-esteem, I
suppose."

Quesera sera
When a person commits a serious crime, you
don't let them take their weapons to jail. So a
young chap from Canada serving three life terms
for two sex slayings and a third attempt will be
leaving a vital organ of his on the prison operating
table. Henry Williams, 26, is not a victim of' a
return to the Middle Ages. He volunteered for the
"rehabilitation" program. Justice Edson Haines,
who- suggested Williams' castration, said he was
"to be congratulated for his insight and courage."
Three psychiatrists at the trial testified that its
use on sex criminals in Denmark had an 85 per
cent success rate. Williams' decision came after
lengthy discussion with his wife and, of course,
the Salvation Army. Commented one local observ-
er, "Well, it's better than watching 17 Doris Day
movies.'
Let conscience be
your gide
Last month, the terrorist Emiliano Zapata Group

bombed a Bank of America branch in Berkeley,
Calif. in one of many such incidents in the San
Francisco Bay area. Now the organization has sent
$25 and $50 dollar money orders to householders
whose windows were shattered in the blast, apolo-
gizing for the trouble they caused. "After careful
consideration and discussion within our unit," the
revolutionaries said in their notes, "we have
decided to help pay for the glass damage caused
by the concussion. We apologize for the incon-
veniences this has caused, but we are certain you
would willingly sacrifice a few windows to get
these parasites out of our community." The money
orders, were signed by "Rosa Cabanas," a revolu-
tionary believed to have been killed in a foreign
country last year-which probably makes the
householders glad the group didn't send checks.

Students
want to
ptn point
Mich.
By ELAINE FLETCHER
A group of local high school
students would like to "pin-
point" the spot where Michigan
was first declared a state-with
a 22 foot needle-shaped monu-
ment.
But the county doesn't think
the plan is too sharp.
THE BOARD of Commission-
ers, which has its offices inside
the County Building on Huron
and N. Fourth, near the site
where Michigan wassnamed a
state in 1837, is not so sure it
wants the giant pinhead planted
at the historic spot.
"It's not art. It's nothing but
pop art - an aluminum pin,"
objected County Commissioner
Ray Bradbury. "If you want
to put it somewhere, then take
it over to the Diag, near all
the other pinheads in town."
The board listened to the
Huron High School students'
idea for the second time last
night. They are expected to
refer it to committee.
THE PROJECT had been vot-
ed down at a commissioners'

'U' panel approves
research proposal
By GORDON ATCHESON
and CHERYL PILATE
A University committee ruled yesterday that a controversial
classified research proposal complies with regental guidelines
governing the type of secret work that may be done here, although
the project had been questioned previously on those grounds.
The Research Policies Committee voted 11-I' in closed ses-
sion that a proposal for a highly sophisticated radar antenna sys-
tem submitted by two University professors does not violate a
rule that secret research done at the University cannot endanger
human life.
PHYSICS PROFESSOR Jens Zorn, one of three persons who
screen classified proposals for the University, states in a memo
that he believes the proposal failed to meet that regental regula-
tion.
His challenge automatically referred the project to the Re-
search Policies Committee for further review.
The committee met yesterday afternoon to discuss the mat-
ter and to hear' from Engineering Prof. Thomas Senior, who co-
authored the proposal with fellow Engineering Prof. Ralph Hiatt.

MSA
the University-is now in effect.
foThe plan was originally slated
for implementation this April,
but an oversight by SGC offi-
cials in drawing up the referen-
dum designating the April date
prompted a suit and yesterday's
ruling.
After proposals have been ap-
proved by the student body, the
methods for implementation of
those referenda are usually dic-
tated by a provision in the pro-
posal or by SGC constitutional
law.
HOWEVER, any parliamen-
tary procedure not coverned in
the constitution is deferred to
Robert's Rules of Order.
In this instance, the former
SGC members failed to official-
Iv designate an implementation
date and Robert's noted that,
unless otherwise specified, ref-
erenda take effect immediately.
The CSJ also ruled that SGC
President Debra Goodman and
Vice President David Mitchell
are no longer officers, but will
be voting members of the MSA.
Officers will be elected by the
at-large body.
IRVING FREEMAN, a twice
unsuccessful candidate for SGC,
brought the suit and said last
night that he was "extremely
tpleaised with the results.
"I brought the sit as a .test,"
Freeman continued., "It .(the
MS A plan) should have taken
effect immediately. It forces
SV' to follow the law."
But Goodman called the move
by Freeman "irresponsible and
destructive."
"WE ,MADE a mistake es-
sertiallv-we didn't say it would
take effect in Aoril. The con-
stitution is kind of hazy on
