Official gets
support of
County Bd.
in N.Y. case
The Washtenaw County Board of
Commissioners yesterday voted infor-
mal support for County Administrator
Michael Gotthainer, who is to be indic-
ted today in New York, for alleged
misconduct while employed by Suffolk
County as an administrative assistant.
Gotthainer, 35, will be charged with
asking the Suffolk County legislature
twice for funding in the purchase of
$50,000 worth of laboratory equipment
for the county health department, ac-
cording to sources cited in the Long
Island newspaper, Newsday.
in Suffolk County from 1972 to 1975, Got-
thainer was in charge of preparing the
county budget. He has previously
testified before the grand jury.
Newsday said Gotthainer's indic-
tment was part of a larger grand jury
investigation into alleged misconduct
by Suffolk County officials from 1972 to
Gotthainer told the Washtenaw Coun-
ty Board of Commissioner's chairman
Richard Walterhouse Thursday night of
the possible indictment. He confirmed
yesterday before the Board that he had
been unofficially informed of the
charges, but because the indictment
was sealed, he would not know the
precise nature of the charges until he
appeared before the grand jury today.
"I'm certainly innocent of it, and I in-
tend to go back tomorrow (to New
York) and supply the Suffolk County
legal system with whatever they want
so that they believe it," Gotthainer told
the commissioners.
THE BOARD moved yesterday to
discuss Gotthainer's pending indic-
tment behind closed doors. After the
public was again admitted to the
session, Board chairman Walterhouse
read a statement calling Gotthainer's
work during the past year for
Washtenaw County "outstanding."
Walterhouse said he would support

when it was assembled on the lawn of the Art Museum on State St. The metal is a special grade of steel that rusts only to a
certain point. The numbers are being removed so they will not interfere with the rusting process.

Doonesbury on Capitol Hill
It seems Capitol Hill administrators are as
anxious as the rest of us to read Gary Trudeau's
popular comic strip "Doonesbury." Following the
lead of the White House, a congressional research
organization yesterday began circulating the comic
strip to Capitol Hill offices. The Democratic Study
Group said it was distributing the "legislatively
vital" strip with its packet of information on up-
coming legislation because of a "local 'Doonesbury'

"When "law-abiding" citizens are pulled over for
speeding, they often try to talk their way out of it in
an expected manner. But some of the responses are
not so typical. After being pulled over, one Michigan
man claimed, "Officer, my wife is going to get
pregnant tonight, and I want to be there when she
does." Another driver seemingly couldn't get his
directions straight. "But I was just keeping up with
