Capital offense
This week's episode of "Lansing Follies" takes
place on the House of Representatives floor, and
stars Ann Arbor's own Rep. Perry Bullard, fight-
ing to have his name placed at the top of a
resolution praising the basketball team for fin-
ishing second in the NCAA tournament. Bullard
introduced the resolution late Thursday, with
House Speaker Bobby Crim (D-Davison) as a
co-sponsor. As might be expected, the proposal
passed, but someone moved that the sponsor be
listed as only Crim, on behalf of the entire House.
Bullard objected, since the measure involved his
district, but Republican Floor Leader William
Bryant threatened to delay the whole mess un-
til next week. Eventually, Bryant withdrew his
protest. According to Bullard, the Republican
was told "If you start screwing around with
our resolutions, we'll start screwing around with
Happenings ...
... begin with two all-day events. The Michi-
gan Geology and Gemcraft Society's Second An-
nual Educational Seminar starts at 11 am. in
the Exact Science Bldg. at Washtenaw Communi-
ty College. Lectures and demonstrations abound
... Air Aces III, a professional Frisbee-flinging
squad, show their style all day at Briarwood
Mall ... the local chapter of Common Cause holds
a reorganizational meeting at 10 a.m. in the
Ann Arbor Public Library ... the Food Action
Coalition sponsors a series of Food Week work-
shops, all beginning at 1 p.m. They consist of
a panel discussion on Nutrition for the Elderly
at the public library, a Food Stamp workshop
at 331 Thompson, and an Agriculture workshop
on local marketing and a new "Farmer's Mar-
ket" in the community room at Briarwood Mall
... Navy-Marine ROTC holds a run-a-thon for
the March of Dimes beginning at 1 p.m. in the
Arb ... Phi Beta Kappa holds an initiation ban-
quet in the Michigan League ballroom at 6 or
6:30, depending on which press release you want
to believe ... and there's a talk on "Women in
China" at 7:30 in the Assembly Hall of the Michi-
gan Union, with newsreels and slides from China.
Scotch and water
The Scotch and water in the harbor of Galveston,
Texas is not exactly the kind drinkers usually
have in mind. About 9600 fifths of the expensive
booze dropped into the ship channel during the
unloading of a barge Tuesday. Witnesses said a
large container broke open and fifth after fifth
plopped into the salty water. Divers were still
searching for the Scotch yesterday, but underwater
visability in the area is only eight inches, and port
authorities said it would take some time to recover
the liquor.
Hizzoner, what 's-his-nrne
You might call it veto power for journalists
- newspaper and radio reporters in the South
American port city of Barranquilla, Colombia
have voted unanimously not to mention the may-
or's name in any of their stories. The city's
Reporters Circle took the move to repay the
mayortfor barring them from a swearing-in cere-
mony for the new treasurer, where he had posted
policemen to keep journalists out. Since the re-
porters approved the self-imposed silence four days
ago, neither the name of the mayor nor that
of the treasurer has appeared in any Barran-
quilla newspaper. Or ours, either.
Inside LR J
Exposure of former presidents' innermost lives
seems to be in fashion these days, and LBJ is
the latest target. According to a new book by
former Johnson aide Doris Kearns, LBJ was a
childhood victim of rejection by his parents and
was forced by his father to go through life prov-
ing his manhood. Kearns, who helped Johnson
with his memoirs, says LBJ told her his mother
"walked around the house pretending I was dead"

whenever he failed to satisfy her. The adulthood
result was "the Johnson freeze-out, hurting others
as much as his mother had hurt him years be-
fore." And because young Johnson's father sub-
jected him to tests of manhood that deeply hu-
miliated him, the President later developed his
own tests - like forcing visitors at the LBJ ranch
to shoot deer, and compelling White House staff
and cabinet members to accompany their boss into
the bathroom to continue conversations.

Vice President Wilbur Pierpont.
Pierpont said yesterday that
"although borrowed funds will
be required" the University will
meet its April payroll.
He added that the situation
would be discussed with the R h
University Regents at their
April 16 meeting, at which time
the question of borrowing money

DR. WESTON Agor, special
assistant to Governor Milliken
for higher education, said he
has no idea how long the delay
will last. "I don't think any-r
body knows," he claimed.
Agor declined to predict
whether any future delays seem- r
ed imminent. "It's all very
speculative," he continued, "it
all depends on how much money
flows in."

The situation could improve
by the end of April, according
to Newton, when the state's new
single business tax begins to
generate new revenue. The re-
lief, however, could be little
more than temporary.
"THIS REALLY isn't sudden,"
Newton said. "Our cash position
has been gradually deteriorat-
ing over the past few years."
He added that the state has
been patching its educational
budget for some time by bor-
rowing money from various

other sources, including the
State Highway and the Fish and
Wildlife Funds.
"We've been saying for some
time now that state institutions
are going to have to either cut
expenditures or raise more
revenue," he added sternly.
A few hostile words were
spoken here, too. Pierpont de-
plored the necessity of the Uni-
versity borrowing money, say-
ing it meant "paying interest
expenses in another situation
over which we have no control."

THE NEW LEASE will be incorporated and
cross-referenced with the collective bargaining
ants agreement.

In light of Rhodesian Prime
Minister Ian Smith's recent re-
jection of a black majority rule
in that nation, speculation has
heightened that full scale fight-
ing will soon erupt in the Afri-
can country.
According to University His-
tory Professor Godfrey Uzoigwe,
if Smith adheres to his position,
a war will certainly break out.
UZOIGWE accuses the whites
in Rhodesia of failing to deal
realistically with the black na-
tionalists and says "Smith is
walking to the gallows blind-
"The blacks in Rhodesia are
well trained now and it is not

When Richard Neustadt's book, Presidential Power, was
published in 1960, it was like a new wave in the science of
U. S. politics. Analyzing the Truman and Eisenhower ad-
ministrations, Neustadt's work evolved a theory of power
that was to be heeded by administrations to follow.
Sixteen years, however, have passed. Camelot died on
one eerie Friday in 1963, and the bright young idealist. have
grown older. Surprisingly, Neustadt, 57, appears not to have
