"I will not run..."
Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield an-
nounced yesterday he will not seek reelection. The
Montana lawmaker, who will be 73-years-old March
16, has served in the Senate since 1953. Before
that he served 10 years in the house. It is not
clear who will succeed Mansfield as Majority lead-
er, but Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) is the current fav-
orite. In announcing his decision Mansfield said
his 23 years as Senator "are not a long time,"
but, "it is enough time .. ."
Revealing protest
Nineteen members of Yale University's wo-
men's varsity crew staged a strip-in Wednesday in
their athletic director's office to protest the lack
of shower facilities where they train. The women
painted "Title IX" on their backs and chests with
blue felt-tipped pens to call attention to their
plight. The U. S. Department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare requires that women's teams
have facilities equal to men's. The men's varsity
crew has lockers and showers located on the river
where they train, but temporary facilities for the
women have not been okayed by the New Haven
zoning board.

Research ban
The federal government has ordered a halt to
all research and medical experiments on federal
prisoners, according to Rep. Robert Kastenmeier
(D-Wisconsin). No medical experiments will be in-
itiated in the future and the one project currently
in existence will be halted by the end of the year.
The ban came after Congressional hearings last
fall revealed that prisoners received various in-
ducements, including better quarters, special
treatment and financial rewards for participating
in research programs.

Senate st
By PAULINE LUBENS
A voluminous 789-page bill which would codify federal law is
current being considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and
its opponents say it represents an unparalleled threat to American
civil liberties.
Dubbed as "the largest piece of legislation ever introduced
in Congress" the Senate Bill 1, or S-1, has raised a cloud of con-
troversy since its introduction in January 1975.
WHILE SUPPORTERS of the measure claim it is simply an
attempt to create a uniform code of federal law, the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) and other opponents have denounced the
bill as a return to McCarthyism and an outright attack on civil
liberties.
The proposal redefines various crimes already on the books,
such as robbery or burglary, but adds new dimensions to other
crimes, such as riots or disclosure of classified information. It
would reinstate the death penalty, and extend the legal limits on

ruggles wit
the use of wiretapping and other methods of obtaining incrimi-
nating evidence.
The measure is sponsored by a long list of Senators including
John McClellan, Robert Griffin (R-Mich.) Roman Hruska (R-Neb.)
and Birch Bayh, (D-Ind.) who has recently withdrawn his name
from the bill under pressure from liberal constituents.
BECAUSE the original work on the bill began during the last
years of the Nixon Administration, opponents have charged that
the bill represents many of the "hangups" of the former President
and his closest advisors, including former Attorneys General John
Mitchell, and Richard Kleindienst. Simon said that many of the
provisions stemmed directly from Nixon's constant "paranoia"
about anti-war demonstrators and his penchant for wiretapping.
The wiretapping and disclosure of classified information pro-
visions have drawn the heaviest fire.
Under S-1, landlords and phone companies must cooperate
with law enforcement officials in installing wiretap devices. In
addition, S-1 requires that only one party in a conversation con-

nt to the interception of the communication.

IN THE CASE of disclosure of classified information, the mea-
sure hands downs sentences ranging from the death penalty to a
seven-year-prison term.
The death penalty would be invoked if a person "collected
national defense information, knowing it would be communicated
to a foreign power." This would apply only during time of war or
national emergency.
Opponents claim that this provision inhibits free speech and
violates freedom of the press because reporters would be hesi-
.tant to disclose documents such as the then-classified Pentagon
Papers which the New York Times printed in the spring of 1971.
Under S-1, Daniel Ellsberg, who revealed the documents to the
Times could have been subject to the death penalty.
THE OTHER major criticism of the measure has been that
it reenacts the Smith Act, which the Supreme Court ruled uncon-
stitutional in the 1950's. Like the Smith Act, S-1 would make it

papers

missing

WASHING TON (Y)
-- More than 200 "Top-se-
cret" and "Secret" docu-
ments which the CIA
turned over to the house
intelligence committee are
missing, according to a let-
ter written by an aide to
CIA director George Bush.
The documents cover
such sensitive subjects as
the CIA budget, strategic
arms limitation, the 1974
coup in Portugal, the agen-
cy's use of business firms
for cover and detailing of
CIA personnel to other gov-
ernment agencies, CIA aide
Mitchell Rogovin said in a
Feb. 27 letter to committee
chairman Otis Pike (D-
N.Y.).
OF A TOTAL 232 documents
missing, 189 were classified
Top Secret, according to the
letter. Some of them were list-
ed as "Top Secret-Codeword,"
which an agency spokesman
said further restricts the num-
ber of peonle with access to
the material.
Pike discounted the possibil-
ity of theft, saying the docu-
ments probably had been turn-
ed over to the National Ar-

chives, destroyed, or returned
to another by mistake.
In a letter sent Monday to
Bush, Pike asked for more
specific information about the
documents, such as when and
to whom they were given. He
also promised that "I will cer-
tainly do what I can to help
you find them."
THE HOUSE committee went

out of business last month aft-
er the full House voted not to
publicly release the panel's fin-
al report on its investigation of
U. S. intelligence agencies. The
House Ethics Committee has
undertaken an investigation into
the leak of that report to CBS
correspondent Daniel Schorr.
Pike was first alerted to the

Most lottery losers
to remain in dorms
By CATHERINE REUTTER
Most University dorm residents, including those who originally
lost out in last month's housing lottery, have been offered rooms
for next year.
Available spaces opened up when people who participated in
the lottery did not sign dorm leases.
ACCORDING TO Couzens Building Director Leonard Spillane,
people entered the drawing and later withdrew for a variety of
reasons. Some, he believes, were merely "playing it safe" by
keeping their housing opportunities open for the fall.
Markley Building Director Leroy Williams attributes the
reluctance of lottery participants to sign leases to another factor-
that the current room contracts are binding until September 27,
whereas last year, leases could be broken before June or sold dur-
ing the summer.
"Anyone who participated in the drawing at Bursley had an
opportunity to sign a lease," said Building Director Loretta
Anderson last night.

DEBT ,AD SERVICE ALLEGED:
gement prolems

may sb
By MICHAEL BLUMFIELD
The Loma Linda, a local
Mexican restaurant -turned - dis-
cotheque, may be forced to close
down due to a month-long liquor
shortage, deteriorating service,
inadequate h e a 1 t h standards,
and a tremendous debt, accord-
ing to several of the establish-
ment's former employes.
Eight employes who decline to
be identified, have left Loma
Linda in the past two months
have filed complaints about the
bar with the Liquor Control
Commission, the health depart-
ment, and state and local labor

ut Loma Linda

bureaus.
TWO OF those formerly em-
ployed were fired for reasons
not discussed by the manage-
ment, while the others quit be-
cause they had not been paid in
f )ur weeks.
The restaurant's troubles be-
gan when its debts prevented
further liquor purchases for
nearly a month. "People would
ask for Chivas Regal and I'd
say 'We have no Scotch,' and
th ey'd ask for just bar Scotch.
I had to explain that we had no
Scotch at all," a former cock-
tail waitress comments.

Committee 13 explores
moral aspects of DNA
By MARGARET YAO
The unique mandate of the University's Committee B, ex-
ploration of the moral and ethical issues surrounding recombi-
nant DNA research, may make it the only academic gathering
of its kind in the country.
Unlike the national scientific committee which drew up the
ational Institutes of Health (NIH) safety guidelines for the
esearch, Committee "B" is comprised of laypeople. As such, it
annot be charged with self-aggrandizement or other selfish mo-
tives as Jonathan King, MIT biology professor, accused the NIH
roup at Wednesday's DNA forums.

that they had seen cheap bar
liquor emptied into expensive
brand bottles, and cheaper beers
disguised as more expensive
brands.
"THEY connected a Stroh's
keg to both the Stroh's tap and
a Calgary tap-the most expen-
sive beer sold here," stated one
ex-waitress.
During Loma Linda's liquor
crisis, which occurred about two
months ago, management credit
with liquor wholesalers dropped
so low that workers were run-
ning to local party stores for
supplies, according to ex-work-
ers.
Former employes report that
backed-up sewers plagued the
sanitary conditions of the bar,
and that when a health inspec-
tor appeared one day, the lights
went out while he was writing
his evaluation. Detroit Edison
did not turn the lights on again
until three days later.
WHENsLOMA Linda's dining
room was shut down in Janu-
ary, many employes were not
informed until it was actually
closed, the ex-workers stated.
According to a former wait-
ress, the changes in the estab-
lishment produced a clientele of
"kids, 18 to 19-year-olds who sit
and drink maybe one beer all
night. As a result, tips have
dwindled to reportedly next to
nothing."
