Snuff said
For all you deadpan humor types, don't miss
the premiere of the film which promises to be
the next Naked Came the Stranger, at least in
Detroit. Snuff, the film which boasts a "genuine
murder" on screen, is opening at the Fox Theater
in Detroit this afternoon at 1 p.m. Banned in
Massachusetts and terminated abruptly during
its run in Philadelphia, Snuff may soon present
a viable alternative to Pink Flamingos in the
cinematic portrayal of Bad Taste. But is the
murder real? When asked, the film's distributor,
Allen Shackleton, would only comment, "I'd be
crazy to admit it if is, and I'd be crazy to admit
it if it isn't." So put that in your nose and Snuff it.
Presidential primary
The State House has rejected a -move to scrap
this year's May 18 presidential primary in Mich-
igan. But it is still undecided who will pick up the
tab - the state or local government - because
it is expected to run about $3 million. By a vote
of 63-41 the House refused to debate an amend-
ment which would have ended the primary, effec-
tive immediately. The House Election Committee,
meanwhile, unanimously approved a bill which
would require the state to pay for the primary.
The funding portion of the 1972 law which estab-
lished the Michigan primary has expired. In re-
sponse, a group of township and city clerks has
asked an Ingham County Court judge to determine
if they have to hold the election at all.

Congressional tomfoolery
Male drivers in Lafayette, Indiana honk less
and smile more at women clad in scarcely a n y
clothes, wearing outlandish clown masks hobbling
on crutches with a bandaged leg. Senator Wil-
liam Proxmire yesterday awarded the $46,100
National Science Foundation study, which uncov-
ered these findings, the March "Fleece of the
Month Award." The Wisconsin democrat gives the
award monthly for what he considers the biggest
example of governmental waste. Wonder if he
has considered Congressional paychecks.

The great Iraic robbery
Daring daylight thieves stole 44 tons of track
from Iowa's Great River Railroad last month.
Some 3,000 feet of newly laid track was cut up and
carted away for its scrap value by thieves who
"just waved at farmers who saw them cutting up
the rails with acetylene torches," said Larry Raid,
co-owner of the fledgling railroad. The railroad--
which has yet to run a train - had just laid the
track, replacing older sections in need of repair,
when the thieves cut the track into 150 pound
sections and carried it away, leaving neat little
piles of bolts. It is estimated the bandits got
$10,000 for their efforts. As for the farmers, Raid
commented: "They are so friendly, they'll wave
at anybody."

CHICAGO-Jimmy Carter and Richard Daley were

LONDON (Reuter) - Harold
Wilson, leader of four British
governments with a total of
nearly eight years in office,
shocked his party and the na-
tion yesterday by resigning as
prime minister.
Wilson, who has served more
years in office than any other
20th century peacetime British
premier, drove alone to Buck-
ingham Palace and told Queen
Elizabeth he will go as soon as
the Laubour Party finds a suc-

tonished by the announcement,

first believe, crowded into the
House of Commons to hear op-
position Conservative leader
Margaret Thatcher call for a
general election to "resolve the
But Wilson rejected this and
made it clear he expects Labour
to continue ruling. He revealed
he had planned for a long time
to resign. He told the Queen
last December that he would

quit this March. He was 60
years old last Thursday.
As the Labair Party met last
night to discuss the election of
a new leader, who will auoma-
tically become prime minister,
the most mentioned candidate
was Foreign Secretary James
WILSON said in a statement
that he had been party leader
for 13 exciting and turbulent
years and in parliament 31
years. "No one should ask for
more," he said.
"I have a clear duty t:> the
country and to parliament not
to remain here so long that
others are denied the chance to
seek election to this post."
Wilson said he was sure the

new administration would be
equally determined to ;om:>at
inflation and maintain Britain's
commitment to its allies and to
the European Common Market.
HE SAID he had chosen a good
moment to resign because the
present government, elecied in
1974, was at the "turn of the
hinge - the weeks that follow'
will be a crucial time in the
hammering out of the next phase
of the anti-inflation policy."
He claimed that the nation had
accepted his previous year's
policy in which trade unions
kept wage increases to within
10 per cent. A new agreement
was now due.
There were fears, 4 owever,
that Wilson is needed to main-

tain the unity of the Labour
Party inwhich--a-powerful left-
wing group regards the govern-
ment's harsh anti-inflation poli-
cies as a betrayal of .sociaism.
"I CANNOT see any logical
successor at a time when we
need a leader to achieve the
complete unity of the party,"
said an admittedly shocked Joe
Gormley, president of the Coal
Miners Union.
Opposition Conservatives were
claiming that Wilson was going
because he could not con.rol
"the Marxist wing of the par-y."
But Wilson insisted in his
statement that the Labour PThrty
has a strong team from which
to choose a premier.

GEO discusses open

Open bargaining sessions for nextyear's contract will be the
main issue at the Graduate Employes' Organization (GEO) meet-
ing tomorrow evening. The University and GEO bargainers have
met twice this month in closed sessions to lay negotiation ground
"We should have open sessions," says GEO Treasurer Art
Schwartz. "The only way they should be closed is if both parties
could agree." The University maintains that either negotiating
team should be able to close a session, as provided for in last
year's ground rules.
"AT ANY point in time one party or the other may think
negotiations should go private," chief University negotiator John
