Perry and the cops
State Rep. Perry Bullard, (D-Ann Arbor) has ac-
cused an Ingham County Circuit judge of aiding in
a cover up of State Police spying activities. Bul-
lard said yesterday that the House Civil Rights
Committee, which he chairs, will continue to in-
vestigate the so-called Red Squad of the State
Police despite a court order that the squad be
dismantled and the files destroyed. Bullard said
the order to destroy the files without making
them public is "as damaging to democracy and
contrary to justice as Nixon's efforts to keep peo-
ple from knowing about Watergate." State Police
Director George Halverson said that opening the
files, even just to the persons investigated, could
lead to the injury or death of police informants
who helped gather information.

A waterlogged affair
Waterbeds are supposed to be great for lovers.
And when the affair goes stale, you can always
rip open-the bed and drown your partner. That's
exactly what Californian Mark Bates, 23, had in
mind. after he quarreled with his new wife, Cheryl,
23, yesterday. She claims Bates pushed her onto
the waterbed, slashed it witha knife and shoved
her head into the water. She said she escaped
and called police, who arrested Bates as he
drove from their home. He was booked for investi-
gation of attempted murder, drunken driving,
malicious mischief and resisting arrest.
Dahling, I vant a divorce
Zsa Zsa Gabor is divorcing her sixth husband
because he took her Rolls Royce apart and didn't
put if back together again. Gabor, 55, also charg-
ed that husband Jack Ryan, who invented the
Barbie Doll, promised to build her a nightclub in-
side their luxurious Bel-Air home as a wedding
present and failed to come through with the
goods. Is that what divorce lawyers call irrecon-
cilable differences?
'Man' talk
How's a boy going to grow up into a big, strong
man if he's following after a mere woman? He
just won't and needs a man to lead him instead,
says the national president of the Boy Scouts of
America. With that sexist conclusion, the scouting
movement has ruled out women as Cubmasters.
After all, you wouldn't want your son learning how
to cook or sew, would you? "Advice from sociolo-
gists and child psychologists has convinced us that
leadership should be male and we believe that,"
said Arch Monson, the scout official. The question
of female Cubmasters came up last April when
a cub pack in Maryland lost its charter because
a woman was the Cubmaster. Last June, the Bal-
timore Area Boy Scout Council sent a resolution
to the national scouting organization calling for a
change in the by-laws to allow women Cubmasters.
The council said there had been "changes in pub-
lic opinion on the roles of women in the scouting
movement" and urged study "to really determine
if the man-boy relationship is that important."

President nominates new labor secretary

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President Ford yesterday nomi-
nated W. J. Usery, a one-time blue-collar worker and
long-time federal labor mediator, to be the new sec-
retary of labor.
Ford expressed confidence in the ability of the
52-year-old Usery to handle "this very tough job" in
a year when Ford said there would be a number of
prospective labor disputes in such major industries
as the rubber; automotive and trucking fields.
IF CONFIRMED by the Senate, Usery will succeed
John Dunlop, who resigned recently because he felt
he no longer had the confidence of labor after Ford
vetoed the common site picketing bill, which would
have given unions the right to strike an entire con-
struction site.
Asked if he thought he could get along with labor,
Usery, sitting in the Oval Office with the President,
said, "I enjoy the confidence of many people in the
labor organization. I think we can work, together."
Usery said he would administer his new department
"fairly and impartially."

USERY'S nomination came at a time of tension be-
tween the President and the AFL-CIO labor move-
The AFL-CIO and the Independent Teamsters Union
were enraged when Ford, this month, vetoed the pic-
keting bill after promising Dunlop he would sign it.
Usery is highly regarded by both management and
labor and one of his first tasks will be to try and re-
store communication between the administration and
the unions, which in Dunlop's view was destroyed by
the president's veto.
PRAISING Dunlop as "a man of extreme talent,
and practical knowledge," Usery said they had worked
together closely "'o help maintain a high degree of
labor-management peace during a period of consider-
able economic stress."
Last July, with strikes threatened against the Postal
Service and the railroads, Usery shuttled tirelessly
between the separate negotiations for nearly 48 hours,
winning peaceful settlements in both disputes. "He
never looked tired," said an observer.

If necessary, he sometimes resorts to unorthodox
tactics. He once hid C. L. Dennis, president of the
Brotherhood of Railway Clerks from then-Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell and the Justice Department who wanted
to arrest Dennis for defying a congressional order to
end a strike. Usery hid Dennis in various hotels
around town until the strike ended and the congression-
al order became moot.
USERY WAS passed over twice before for the Cabi-
net post, both by former President Richard Nixon
and by Ford when he tapped Harvard economist Dun-
lop for the post last March.
Ford said both he and the American people were
"very fortunate" that Usery was available and "will-
ing to assume this very tough job."
Usery, who has served for seven years in govern-
ment posts, was a maintenance machinist for the
Armstrong Cork Co. from 1949 to 1955.and then became
grand lodge representative of the International As-
sociation of Machinists and Aerospace Workers AFL-
CIO where he began his career in labor negotiations.

BEIRUT, Lebanon-Presi-
dent Suleiman Franjieh an-
nounced yesterday that all
of Lebanon's warring fac-
tions have agreed on a
cease-fire and "fundamen-
tal principles for a political
solution" to end the nine-
month-old c i v i1 war be-
tween the country's Mos-
lems and Christians.
But fighting went on in
Beirut long after the 8 p.m.
(1:00 p.m. EST) deadline.
AS THE. cease-fire formally
went into effect, the- chatter
of machine gun f i r e still
echoed throughout the center of
Observers said it would be
necessary to wait until at least
today to know whether the
truce was taking hold.
The cease-fire deadline was
set by a "joint supreme mili-
tary commission" made up of
representatives of the Lebanese
and Syrian armies as well as
the Palestine Liberation Army
(PLA) to supervise "an end to
the fighting and a return to
normal life."
PALESTINIAN sources said
last night that the military
had decided theceasefire would
be followed by the withdrawal
of armed forces so that roads
would be safe from 2 p.m. (7
a.m. EST) today.
All military and police bar-
racks whichhad been occupied
would be cleared of gunpersons.

Displaced civilians would be
returned to their homes and
bodies would, be exchanged be-
tween the rival forces.
All detained soldiers would be
released together with military
THE SOURCES said regional
committees would be set up to
supervise the ceasefire. They
would be three-person groups
made up of a Lebanese, a Sy-
rian and a Palestinian.
The Voice of Palestine Radio
said the road from Beirut south
to Sidon which had been closed
by fighting around Damour
would be reopened today.
The agreement also calls for
the return of all Christians,
Moslems and Palestinians to the
areas they occupied before the
war; retreat of all armed men

to their bases, including troops
of the PLA who came from
Syria this week; redistribution
of political power to end Chris-
tian dominance and give the
Moslems an equal voice; and
machinery to improve the eco-
nomic lot of the Moslems.
E:XCH OF 20 previous cease-
fires proved to be, at best, just
a breathing space for the com-
batants to rest and rearm-and
at worst, no more than pious
But this was the first time
Syria had been so closely in-
The involvement of the neigh-
boring Arab Moslem state could
be a vital factor in enforcing
a ceasefire, but it is also likely
to be a major sticking point

with Lebanon's Christians.
INTERIOR Minister Camille
Chamoun, head of the National
Liberal Party, has accused the
Syrians of direct military in-
tervention in support of Pales-
tinians and left-wing factions.
"The ceasefire cannot be ac-
cepted under the condition we
are in," a spokesperson for his
party said without elaboration.
Referring to Syrian and Pales-
tinian involvement in yestet-
day's ageeement, the spokesper-
son said, "We understand their
situation, but that does not
mean they have to be involved
in the nolitical affairs of our

IM Building to close
in May for repairs
The Advisory Committee of Recreational, Intramural and
Club Sports (ARICS) recommended yesterday that the Intramural
Recreation Building on Hoover Street be closed for four months
this summer for renovation.
The motion was carried with only one dissenting vote, that of
committee member Richard Bailey.
RENOVATIONS PLANNED for the 47-year-old structure, the
first building of its kind in the country, mainly entail the com-

administrators . . . on the idea
that living and learning can go
on in the same place . . . and
that education can be flexible

should be encouraged to be in-
dependent and resourceful. And
the thing was working! But you
have people here who seem to
be trying to wipe out every gain
we've made."
According to Egnatios, the RC
first tangled with the Housing
Office over alleged dope-smok-
ing and sexual promiscuity in
East Quad. At that time the
students and their Resident Ad-
visors had their way and "cer-
tain people" in housing, he al-
leged, have waited for years

"They bided their time like
vultures, and when they were
ready they went for the neck.
They cut the budget they
brought in new staff, they re-
wrote the job description for the
new director of East Quad so
that it all but ignored the exist-
ence of Residential College in
the building," he claimed.

Earl Greene (on the left), Democratic candidate for the Second Ward seat on City Council, mulls
over the delevant issues of the upcoming election with First Ward candidate Ezra Rowry.
City Council candidates cite
public services as prime issue

The five Democratic candidates for City Coun-
cil kicked off their campaigns last night at the
Ann Arbor Public Library with introductory
speeches before party members.
In their brief statements, the candidates out-
lined the issues they would emphasize in the
up-coming elections. Few speakers delved into
specific problems.
HIGH ON THE priority list of almost all the
candidates was the city's obligation to provide
citizens with improved city services such as
street maintenance and garbage collection.

ON THE controversial subject of salaries for
City Council members, Kenworthy had some
strong words, citing the effort involved in being
an effective Council member.
"I put in about 40 hours a week in represent-
ing my constituents," he remarked: "You can't
just walk over from your law office and make
a big 3-hour speech on Monday night and go
home - that's not being a Councilperson."
Other candidates also expressed in issues in-
volving City Council policy and procedure.
