Ann Arbor, Michigan-Sunday, January 11, 1976
It seems Madalyn Murray O'Hair isn't the only
one opposed to prayer in public places. Senior
citizens participating in a federally funded lunch
program have stopped saying prayers before the
meal because one member of the group threatened
to file suit if they didn't. Now, the 300 elderly
diners in Kalamazoo are merely pausing for a
moment of silence before eating, although some
are praying on the sidewalk before they enter.
Senior Services, Inc.., which operates the federal
lunch program, received a letter from an uni-
dentified diner this week complaining that pub-.
lic prayers before lunch amounted to an illegal
mingling of church and state.

Robert Tucker isn't the sort of man you'd find
running around at a nudist colony. Tucker, a
father of two young sons in Coventry, R.I., has
won a battle to force the public schools there
to install private shower stalls for boys. He com-
plained to the U.S. Department of Health, Edu-
cation, and Welfare after discovering that girls
had private stalls while boys only had group
showers. He called that a form of sex discrim-
ination, saying that boys can be as bashful as
girls. HEW officials agreed and ordered the
school department to plan corrective action. Tuck-
er earlier led a .successful campaign to require
that doors be put on boys' bathroom stalls. It

would be requiring his children to undress in the

Steve Mashin lost everything but the shirt on
his back Friday night. Returning to his Miami
apartment after a night out, he found that burg-
lars had haule~d off his television set, stereo and
wrist watch. He then decided to drive over to
Miami Beach to see his mother and a traffic
accident put his car out of commission. After
hitch hiking home, Mashin stopped to telephone
a friend from a phone booth a block from his
apartment. A bandit drove up and stole his last $4.

After 14% months in jail, Inez Garcia is free
on $5,000 bail pending a retrial in the slaying
of a man she says helped rape her. Garcia,
31, was greeted with a shower of flowers and
chants of "viva Inez" when she was released
Friday from the Monterey County jail. The State
Court of Appeals, which overturned her conviction
last month, ordered a county court to set bail.
Garcia's lawyer, Susan Jordan, called her a "sym-
bol of resistance across America" and asked that
she be released on her own recognizance. Garcia
was convicted in Oct., 1974 of second-degree mur-
der for gunning down 300-pound Miguel Jiminez.
She said she killed him because he held her
down while aiother man raped her.

Does an avalanche of unpaid parking tickets
fall on the floor of your car when you open your
glove compartment? Is your pocket always empty
of change when it comes time to feed the park-
ing meter? Well, if- you lived in Austria, your
negligence might land you an appointment on the
psychiatrist's couch someday. This country, home
'of Sigmund Freud, is thinking of using psychia-
trists in the war against persistent parking of-
fenders. Transport Ministry officials are now study-
ing a plan to introduce compulsory psychological
examinations for motorists who keep on break-
ing the law.

Close results likely
In clericals election
By JAMES NICOLL
The clericals union continued counting ballots yesterday from
last week's hotly contested election of executive officers and
bargaining team members. Results were expected early this
morning in this latest duel between the conservative Unity Caucus
and their challengers, the Clericals for a Democratic Union (CDU).
A close count seems likely. Tabulation of the results were
supposed to have been completed Friday night, but a dispute
developed over challenged ballots.
THE UNITY Caucus and the CDU have been fighting for
months over the structure and personnel of the union. Unity Caucus
supports close cooperation with the United Auto Workers (UAW),
with which the local union is affiliated. It has advocated a more
representative form of government for the union, with day-to-day
decision making power vested in elected representatives.
CDU charges that local union interests are being sacrificed
to those of the UAW. Ever since the clericals joined the UAW,
there has been considerable resentment against the influence of
UAW officials on the running of the local union.
CDU ALSO FAVORS a more "democratic" structure of union
government, with power being exercised by the membership itself
rather than by representatives.
The present election concerns the makeup of the bargaining
team and the executive officers. The outcome will be crucial to
the future of the union. CDU has recently succeeded in changing

INDIANA'S Scott May (42) fires a jump shot over the outstretched arms of Michigan's Wayman
Britt (32) in first half action at Crisler Arena yesterday afternoon. May didn't have one of his
best games against the Blue cagers but teammate Kent Benson (54) more than made up for
him as the junior center drilled in 33 paints for the victorious Hoosiers who retained the top posi-
tion in the Big Ten with a 80-74 win.
BENSON TOO MUCH, 80-74
By BILL STIEG
Indiana's fast start and Kent Benson's career-
high 33 points frustrated Michigan's hopes of
upset as the top-ranked. Hoosiers repelled the
Wolverines, 80-74 at Crisler Arena yesterday.
A record crowd of 14,063 watched undefeated
Indiana - go ahead 16-2 in the first six minutes.
Benson scored six in that stretch, and went on
to hit 16 of 18 jumpers, lay-ups and hook shots
to hold the Wolverines at bay.
THOUGH MICHIGAN never led, a late surge
made it 74-70 at 1:57. But a double-teaming de-
fense left Hoosier guard Bob Wilkerson open tin-
der the basket. He scored and Michigan center
Phil Hubbard fouled him hard after the shot.
Jim Crews replacedtthe stunned Wilkerson and
hit two free throws to make it 78-70 and put
away Indiana's 12th win.
Moments earlier, Michigan had a chance to
pull within two after Hoosier Quinn Buckner
travelled,' one of an uncommon 27 turnovers by
Lidiana. Steve Grote drove the baseline but his
shot underneath was blocked by the 6-11 Benson.
Indiana controlled the ensuing jump ball and
Wilkerson scored 15 secolds later..
INDIANA'S turnovers let Michigan battle back
from its sloppy start and the Maize and Blue
trailed only 36-33 at halftime. But Hubbard's four
fo-ls forced Michigan into a rarely-used zone
defense to start the second half, and the Hoosiers
had little trouble getting open and hitting their
"I didn't think they were a great shooting team
until today," said Wolverine coach Johnny Orr.
"They shot very well, but I thought they pushed
Ioff on a couple rebounds."
By the time Michigan abandoned the zone,
Indiana was ahead 53-44 and the Hoosiers' leading
scorer, Scott May, had regained his shooting

Draft lottery may be cancelled
tion for the standby military
draft and the annual draft lot-
tery probably will be called off
this year because of the budget
crunch, informed sources say.
In past years the date of the
annual lottery, deciding the or-
der in which men would be call-
ed up if necessary, has been an-
nounced by early January, but
there are no signs of it hap-
pening this year.
AND IT HAD been reported
that the date for carrying out
the revised system of registra-
tion would be announced by now,
but President Ford has issued
no proclamation setting a date,
nor has he indicated he will.
Both the lottery and the regis-
tration this year would involve
men who turned age 18 last
year. If neither event is held
they would be the first 18-year-
olds not processed in any fashion
since the two-year lapse of the
draft law in 1947-48.
Asked about this situation,
Selective Service Director Byron
Pepitone noted that future plans
are up to Ford and he refused
to speculate on what the Presi-
dent's decision might be.
THE SELECTIVE Service Act
says "it shall be the duty of
every male . . . between ;the
ages of 18 and 26, to present
himself and to submit to regis-
tration at such time or times
and place or places, and in such
manner, as shall be determined
by proclamation of the Presi-
This means it is possible for
registration and lotteries to be
delayed for several years with-
out any action .by Congress.
With Ford pushing the Office
of Management and Budget to
cut spending by all federal
agencies, it is likely Selecrive
Service activities will De cut
back since nobody is being draft-

activity in the face of demands
on Capitol Hill for reducing is

report says only 14 ,,r cent of
the Army deserters who partici-
pated in President Focd's clem-
ency program "mention Viet-
nam as being in any way respon-
sible for their decision to leave."
"Their reasons for lea'ing
were generally unassociated
with the war," said the Penta-
gon report on the President's
program, which was aimed at
healing national divisiveness
over the Vietnam war.
HALF OF the men desevted
because of personal, family or
financial problems, lh repvrt
said. Similar reasons were given
by most deserters during World
War II and the Korean War, it
Most of the remainder were
enable to adjust to Army lfe,
according to Pentagon officials.
The report summarized the
Pentagon's part in the Presi-
dent's clemency program, which
also affected draft dodgers who
never got into uniform. The
program ran from Sapt. 15, 1974,
until last March 31.
