Closing the books
David's Books will be closing soon after two-
and-a-half years in Ann Arbor. David Kozubei,
>wner of the store, was not sure of the exact
closing date yet, but he didn't seem overly con-
cerned. "The world's a cruel place," he laughed.
He blames the closing on a shortage of money,
and figures that "if the store's gotta go, I
might as well enjoy it." He plans on having sales
to clear out his stock.

Eyewitnesses in front of the Arcade 5 pinball
alley claim they were nearly killed Sunday night
when an Ann Arbor police officer fired a blast
from his 12-gauge shotgun at a fleeing burglary
suspect. The action started when police saw an
unidentified man racing from the apartment build-
ing at 612 S. Forest. Police pursued him through
the alley connecting Forest and Church St., where
one of the offers issued a verbal warning before
firing the shotgun. He missed, and the suspect
got away.

The Baltimore father of a Marine recruit who
died during basic training is suing the Marine
Corps for $10 million, and says he wants a con-
gressional investigation into charges of abuse by
drill instructors. Harry John's son, Pvt. Warren
John, 22, contracted rhapdomyloysis, a disease
in which the muscles of the body disintegrate,
only two days after arriving at the Marine re-
cruit training center at Parris Island, S.C. "It
was brought on by overexercise," John says.
"They simply ran my son until he dropped. War-
ren was in the corps for 79 days and he spent
54 of those in the hospital." Herman Bock, a
former Baltimore Marine who was at Parris Is-
land during the same period as John, kept a
record of, abuses by drill instructors. "I person-
ally witnessed several drill instructors place a
large metal trash can over a recruits head and
beat on it with a stick. This noise caused the
recruit to scream and the drill instructors didn't
stop until he cried."

Special To The Daily
PHILADELPHIA-Michigan's dream of its first na-
tional basketball championship is over.
The undefeated Indiana Hoosiers reached the pin-
nacle of their sport last night by marching methodically
past the underdog but competitive Wolverines, 86-68, in
the final game of the 1976 National Collegiate Basketball
THE HOOSIERS reached the top by bombarding the
Wolverines in the second half with 60 per cent shooting
from the floor and nearly flawless free throw shooting.
Defensively, Indiana contained a Michigan fast break
that had sped the Wolverines to a six-point halftime

the two.
Britt left the game at 16:14
of the second half with four
fouls and his team leading by
four. He returned four minutes
later and his team was behind,
47-45. Hubbard picked up his
fifth foul at 7:27 when Indiana
led, 59-53. Less than three mm-
utes later the lead was ten and
Indiana was well into its free
throw shooting exhibition.
In the last six and a half min-
utes, the Hoosiers, unbeaten in
32 games, hit 15 of 17 free
throws and five layups. It prov-
ed too much for the desperate
Wolverines, who had lost Britt
to fouls at 4:58.

Over the Cuckoo's Nest," a film
about life inside a state mental
hospital, swept most of the ma-
jor awards at last night's Aca-
demy Awards ceremony.
Jack Nicholson, the rebel
ring-leader of the 'hospital, and
Louise Fletcher, his cold-heart-
ed antagonist, won best actor
and actress Oscars while "Cuc-
koo's Nest" also won best pic-
ture of 1975 and captured the
prize for best direction by Milos
Forman and for writers Law-
rence Jauben and Bo Goldman.
IT WAS THE first time since
1934 that one picture-"It Hap-
pened One Night" - swept all
the major awards.

"Well, I guess this proves
there are as many nuts in the
Academy as there are any-
where else," grinned Nicholson
as he claimed his award. The
New Jersey-born actor won his
first best actor award following
four unsuccessful nominations.
Fletcher, 41, who played a
soft - spoken, but tyrannical
nurse in the film, broke down
in tears as she accepted her
"Oscar" statuette before a pack-
ed crowd of film stars and oth-
er celebrities.

NBC sells Reagan half

hour of




NEW YORK (;) - Ronald Reagan finally
gained assurance yesterday of the half-hour
prime network time he sought for a nationally
televised presidential primary campaign
speech, reportedly at a cost of $100,000.
The National Broadcasting Co. (NBC) said
it would make an exception to normal policy
and offer the Republican presidential candi-
date 30 minutes at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
ON THE OTHER side of the campaign fence,
five Democratic presidential aspirants con-
verged on New York City for a locally tele-
vised debate on "Who is Responsible for the
Cities?" - a prime issue in the financially
stricken city.
Included among the debaters was Sen. Frank
Church of Idaho, in the initial Eastern ap-
pearance of his fledgling primary campaign.
Others taking part in the debate and seek-
ing the 274 nominating votes at stake in the
April 6 New York primary were former Geor-

gia Gov. Jimmy Carter, Sen. Henry Jackson
of Washington, former Oklahoma Sen. Fred
Harris and Rep. Morris Udall of Arizona.
REAGAN'S North Carolina victory over Pre-
sident Ford led him to change tactics, and
switch temporarily from campaigning in the
field to network television, where he is com-
fortably at home.
Reagan is on the ballot in only one of three
primaries next month - the April 6 Wisconsin
race. So he cancelled a full slate of appear-
ances this week in Virginia, Wisconsin and
Indiana to concentrate on his television ad-
In advance of the Democratic debate, Udall
got the jump on his New York primary rivals.
In town ahead of the others, he took part in
a series of speaches and interviews, during
which he proposed that the federal government
take over welfare costs, which total $2 billion
a year in New York alone.

Other awards were given to

er (best animated short film),

ual effects);; "Jaws (original
score); "Barry Lyndon," John

The Fourth Ward, the city's '.swing
ward', is a broad wedge driven into the
heart of Ann Arbor, covering a f u 11
fou'th of the community. Viewed as a
political thermostat of the city, this ward
harbors a colorful mix of students,
teachers, business types, bigwigs and

opponent Mary Lou Slater.
The Socialist Human Rights P a r t y
(SHRP) has entered Madelyn Elder, a
University senior and shop steward for
the Communications Workers of Amer-
ica Local 4011, in the Fourth Ward bat-
tle. It is unlikely that Elder will t a k e

paign race. Slater, who describes h e r-
self as "an average citizen who wants to
know how her money's being spent," is
following the Republican line by accusing
Kenworthy and other Democrats of "de-
ficit spending."
Kenworthy, however,. has denied such
accusations. "There's isn't any deficit,"
he said. "That's a bunch of bull. We're
going to have a surplus this year."
