Right to bite
The state Supreme Court has upheld the right
of dogs to bite people who step on their tails.
In a 2-2 decision the court ruled that stepping on a
dog's tail is provocation. Under state law a dog's
owner is liable for damages when it bites a
person unless the dog was provoked. The court
didn't say if humans have the right to bite back.
The Ohio State Lantern is calling for Woody
Hayes' resignation. In an editorial Friday, the
Ohio State student newspaper said it was time the
trustees and the university president look at the
controversial coach's conduct. The Lantern was
critical of Hayes' actions following the Buckeyes'
23-10 loss to UCLA in the Rose Bowl, including the
dismissal of defensive standout Nick Buonamici.
"In spite of the furor it would create among
Hayes' loyal fans, the trustees and President Em-
arson should ask for his resignation," stated the
Lantern. "Not only would this ease embarrassment
for the University and help the players to get a
coach who treats them as human beings, but it
would help Hayes' legend as well. Hayes would
fade away form as a martyr before too many more
incidents take the polish off his shining armor,"
the paper said.

When noises in the walls started following them
around, three women attending Glassboro State
College became worried. Police investigating the
situation discovered a plushly carpeted crawlspace
connecting the landlord's apartment with each of
the women's apartments. Built into the crawlspace
were vents allowing a person to see virtually ev-
ery inch of the three apartments. The passage-
way was also equipped with mirrors and pillows to
allow comfortable viewing around corners. In the
attic was a red light attached to each of the bath-
room lights, which according to police, would alert
anyone in the attic that the bathrooms were in
use. The landlord was arraigned on three counts
of invasion of privacy.
Tommy Rettig, 33, former child star of the tele-
vision show "Lassie" was found guilty Friday of
conspiring to import cocaine into California from
Peru. Rettig, who starred in "Lassie" in the fifties,
claimed he and a companion were writing a book
on cocaine smuggling and were framed by the
real smugglers. The jury debated a full day be-
fore returning the guilty verdict. Sentencing is
scheduled for February 23.
Clinging to the undercarriage of a train going up
to 90 miles an hour, a 12-year-old runaway travel-
ed 60 miles Friday night after a fight with his
mother. Shawn Murphy, of London, Canada was
found under the train in Chatham, Canada, cov-
ered with slush. He was treated for exposure in a
hospital and released. One official remarked "It's
a miracle he survived."
The factions in the world Communist bloc are
bickering again. This time the Cubans are charg-
ing China with cooperating with "the reactionary
and imperialist force" in Angola. Friday's issue
of "Granma," the official Cuban newspaper, car-
ried an editorial saying the Chinese government
has taken "the repugnant task of spreading the
most vile propaganda against the Soviet Union
and Cuba for their internationalist aid to Ango-
lan people." It concluded that Angola will win "de-
spite the delirious and frantic Maoist din."

WASHINGTON M1-The government's largest
student aid program has run out of money and,
unless Congres comes up with extra funds, more
than 1.2 million needy college students will lose
an average of $160 they had counted on receiving
"The situation is very serious," said Peter
Voigt, who heads the Basic Educational Oppor-
tunity Grants program in the U.S. Office of
THE TIGHT MONEY economy and unusually
large higher education enrollment increases last
fall combined to produce an unprecedented
demand on grant funds this year, he said. The
program had surpluses the previous two years.
If Congress fails to allow the program to draw
an advance of $160 million on next year's ap-
propriation, or to pass a supplemental appropria-
tion, he said, "we will have to ask institutions to
reduce every award by 20 per cent which would,
of course, cause chaos."
That would cut the average grant during the
1975-76 school year from about $800 to $640.
Grants can go up to a maximum of $1,400 for
the neediest students.
VOIGT SAID the program had only $820 million
to spend on grants this year but expects demands
to approach $1 billion.
Applications were being received at the rate of
40,000 a week last October and November and
still are coming in at the rate of 15,000 to 20,000
a week, he said. Applications for the current
year will be accepted until March 15.
Applications are now available for next school
year when, for the first time, grants will be
available for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and
seniors in most post-secondary institutions.
DURING THE first year of the program,
grants were made to about 70,000 freshpersons
fudgn r12m l in s et t u i t i o n g r a n t c u t s i n 1 9 7 6
and about $60 million of the $110 million appro-
priation was unspent. The second year, when
both freshpersons and sophomores were eligible,
a total of 574,000 grants was made but about
$182 million out of $529 million was unspent.
At the present time, Voigt said,, about 800
colleges and post-secondary schools have not
received grants for their students and will re-
ceive only 33 per cent of their requested amounts.
Without more money, he said, all 5,500 institutions
will have to cut all grants 20 per cent.
"I certainly don't. think the administration
considers that to be a viable option," he said.
THE GREATER demand for grants this year,
he said, "reflect the economy, of course, and
the unusually large increase in enrollments -
slightly under 10 per cent - that no one had
"I also think the program has caught on, ap-
plications were sent out earlier and institutions
got the word," he said.
The budget requests $715 million for the 1976-77
school year but that amount is clearly inadequate,
