Chief sponsors of Senate Bill One, which would
make drastic and, according to some, repressive
changes in the federal criminal code, have dropped
their proposal for a limited death penalty in an
effort to save the rest of the measure. Senators
John McClellan (D-Ark.) and Roman Hruska (R-
Neb.) have also agreed to the demands of their
liberal colleagues on the Judiciary Committee in
accepting a repeal of the Smith Act provisions in
the bill, making it a crime to advocate violent
overthrow of the government. McClellan and
Hruska refused, however, to make legal possession
of small amounts of marijuana, to leave obscenity
controls to the states, or to drop mandatory jail
sentences for drug traffickers. They also balked
at accepting the liberal's demand that wiretapping
be limited in criminal investigations.
The fault, Dear rn tis
University of Washington research scientists have
developed a highly sensitive laser beam device
now being tested along California's San Andreas
Fault in the hopes that it will lead to an early
warning system for earthquakes. Since surface
deformation often precedes earthquakes, the beam
is being used to detect any movement in the
earth's crust. The system can measure changes
as small as 40 one-thousandths of an inch over
seven miles. While this data alone won't help
predict earthquakes, the U.S. Geological Survey,
which is paying for the project, hopes the tiny
movements, when added to other data, will lead
to the ability to make quake predictions. This
may well be the first example of the government
being generous to a fault.

Election gives Council a new
By RICK SOBLE
The infighting and bitter verbal exchanges which have char-
acterized past meetings of the City Council may soon become
conspicuously absent, according to predictions of both Democratic
and Republican members of that body.
As a result of Monday's city elections, Democratic Mayor Al-
bert Wheeler no longer enjoys the support of a liberal majority
on Council. The Democrats cannot now enlist the aid of SHRP
radical Kathy Kozachenko to drive through city ordinances and
resolutions over Republican dissents.
FOR COUNCIL is now dominated by Republicans who will no
longer have to fume helplessly as a conservative minority.
Still, while the Republicans can now muster the support need-
ed to pass municipal legislation, the Mayor retains veto power.
Thus, the Democratic-Republican makeup of City Council (sans
SHRP) still bodes the possibility of deadlocks over certain vola-
AND BECAUSE changes in the city's budget require a seven-
vote majority, such moves still will require bipartisan support.
This enhances the power of City Administrator Sylvester Mur-
ray, who draws up the annual budgets.
"It's like there's two mayors," explained Councilwoman Carol
Jones (D-Second Ward). "On the one hand the mayor has all the
mayoral powers, and on the other hand the Republicans have a
Now neither party can walk all over the other. And this situ-
ation will necessitate negotiation, diplomacy and compromise.
"IF ANYTHING positive is going to happen, it's obvious that
the two parties are going to have to work together and do a lot
of compromising," said Jones.
Jones is not optimistic about coming to terms with the Re-
publicans and feels that the Democrats will have to concede too
"Obviously we're going to lose a lot, 50 per cent or more of
what we want. And I think the city is going to lose," she said.
FURTHERMORE, Jones is afraid that the Republicans will
challenge the Mayor to veto unpopular resolutions.
"They have us over the barrel because both parties are look-
ing forward to next year's mayoral election, and a mayor who does
a lot of vetoing become very unpopular," said Jones.
But Councilman Roger Bertoia (R-Third Ward) denies that
his colleagues would resort to this political tactic.
"SOME OF my Democratic peers are still playing at city gov-
ernment like it was a game," said Bertoia. "There are things
we choose to get done, and if Wheeler has to use his veto, that's
a decision he has to make."

The first Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) election was
marred by a Watergate-style
"dirty trick" yesterday in the
form of a bogus policy flyer pur-

call for the abolition of funding
for intercollegiate athletics, in-

Rep. Morris Udall clung to a slendor lead and claim-
ed a close victory, but Jimmy Carter was narrowing the
edge early today as the votes were counted in Wiscon-
sin's presidential primary election. Sen. Henry "Scoop"
Jackson won New York's contest for Democratic dele-
President Ford easily won the Republican primary
BUT THE DEMOCRATIC outcome was in doubt with 80 per
cent of the precincts counted and Udall ahead by one percentage
The Arizona congressman scored heavily in Madison, site of
the University of Wisconsin. He led in that area by about 22,000
votes; his edge statewide was only 3,700 votes.
Udall was gaining 37 per cent of the vote, Carter 36 per cent.
That put them in a tie for Wisconsin Democratic delegates,
with each man leading for 25 nominating votes.
FORD LED statewide and in every congressional district, and
thus was ahead for all 45 Republican delegates.
Rep. Morris Udall celebrates at a victory rally in a Milwaukee hotel last night after gaining his
first primary victory in Wisconsin.

PEKING-China's Communist: Party yesterday moved quickly

most serious rioting in ten years since the Cultural Revolution.

had been cleared from the great Tien An Men square, the party

ing "class enemies" should be tracked down and dealt resolute
UNDERLYING the message, large numbers of militia armed
with wooden staves were placed in back streets around Tien An
Men during the day.
The vast square, where cars and a building were set ablaze
Monday in day-long riots involving thousands of demonstrators,
was quiet. Youths wandered around, occasionally questioning
foreigners, but there were no serious incidents.
The mob Monday was protesting the removal of wreaths hon-
oring the late Premier Chou En-lai on the Martyrs Monument on

to have been held in the Chinese capital yesterday to determine
how to deal with any new disorders.

decidedly negative reaction to
the LSA faculty's vote to in-
clude the average grade in a

The proposal was passed by a
narrow margin at Monday's fac-

held that the inclusion would
make easier an interpretation
of a student's performance.
"I THINK it is quite unfair,"
said sophomore William Ed-
wards. "It seems like every
semester they (LSA faculty)
come up with something new
to hurt students.
