Fisherwomen legalized
LANSIN, - Striking a blow for wo-
men's liberation and the rights of fisher-
people every here, the Department of
Natural Resources has ordered firms sell-
ing fishing licenses to market their product
to wives as well as husbands. Previously
only husbands could purchase family fish-
ing licenses. But thanks to a complaint
filed by local resident Vicki Lange, the
department issued their directive. Vicki
says she plans to buy a license for her
family sometime next week.
Council note
During an uneventful meeting last night
City Council finally approved a contract
for the demolition of the Fisher-Cadillac
Building. The building, which formerly
housed the People's Ballroom, Ozone
House, Drug Help, and other community
organizations, was gutted by a fire last
December. Most of the organizations have
relocated themselves in temporary facili-
ties, with a little help from friends in the
city administration.
Fuller bridge open
The city reports that Fuller street
bridge, closed for repairs since May 22,
has been reopened. The bridge was closed
indefinitely after a train accident caused
the structure to purti lly collapse. All the
necessary structurt repairs have been
made and the bridge is ready for busi-
ness.
BBC in town
If you wondered where the people with
their portable cameras cane from on the
Diag today, put your mind at rest. They're
from England and are here filming a lit-
tle campus atmosphere for a BBC spe-
cial on drugs in the U.S. and England. The
focus of the Ann Arbor filming is the con-
troversial drug DES, used in a University
Health Center experiment and investi-
gtted by the Adsocates for Medical In-
fotrmttion.

'casually
t museum
By GORDON ATCHESON
"'he sign next to the empty frame reads
temporarily renoved bitt neither the
curator, c pssecuirity, sue thse cite
police know exactly who removed the
painti =g from the University's Museum of
Art.
The painting, a 16th century Japanese
scroll valued at about $4,000, was ap-
parently stolen from the gallery Saturday
morning. A security guard first noticed
the painting was o-issing shortly after
noon Saturday.
LOCAL POLICE quickly took over the
investigation but have "no suspects' at
this time, according to a department
spokesman.
The thief apparently walked into the
museum, waited until the guards were
not watching, then rnioved the painting
and casually walked out, like any visitor.
Museum curatotr Jon iHOtes said the
11 by 13 inch ink-on-paper sketch, by the
artist Gyokuraku, is a relatively valuable
piece because of the period during which
it was done and its excellent condition.
"THE THEFT was obviously planned in
advance," Holmes commented. The thief,
however, did not take other more valtt-
table scrolls which were also on display.
lHolmes said there seemed to be no
apparent reason why the thief chose that
particular work. The police expressed the
same opinion.
At the time of the robbery, four security
gtuards were on duty. "Unless a guard
had been in the same room he couldn't
have . seen the robbery in progress,"
Holmes said. The guards usually move
from room to room within the museum.
EIOLMES SAID more stringent surveil-
lance has already been instituted and that
other security measures are being con-
'sdered.
1-rom now on art objects will be shown
only within glass cases, Iiolmtes said.
BUT UNIVERSITY Safety Chief Fred-
erick Davids pointed out that museum
sectrity is far from foolproof. "If any
ione set his mind to taking something, he
could do it," he commented. And some-
body already has.

Two men rescued from
trapped mini-submarine

:4E:Y WEST, Fla. (3')-A midget sub-
marine with four men aboard popped to
the surface yesterday after rescuers
freed the vessel from the tangled wreck-
age of a destroyer. Two crewmen sur-
vived the 30-hour ordeal in the Atlantic,
Navy spokespersons said.
Rear Adm. John Maurer, commander
of the Key West Naval Station, said, "The
two men in the front will be all right, but
it will be some time before we kno any-
thing about the men in the rear.'
CLAYTON LINK, 31, son of the mini-

sub's designer Edwin Link, and Albert
Stover, a veteran submariner, remained
inside the minisub which was hauled
aboard the mother ship, Sea Diver.
"You can't tell by looking if they're
breathing or not," a Navy spokesperson
said.
Marine biologist Robert Meek, 27, of
Santa Barbara, Calif., and pilot-comman-
der Archibald "Jock" Menzies of Vero
Beach, Fla., were removed from the front
compartment of the bubble-topped sub.
They were placed in a decompression
chamber aboard the U.S.S. Tringa, a sub-

murine rescue ship. Both were reported in
good condition.
RESCUERS WERE hesitant to open the
hatch too quickly because- the men might
suffer "temperature shock." Link and
Stover lapsed into a coma early Monday
as their resistance apparently weakened
in the falling temperature and as the
carbon dioxide increased to near toxic
levels.
The Johnson-Sea link minisub was inves-
tigating fish life at an artificially formed
reef 20 miles southeast of Key West when
it became trapped about 10 a.m. Sunday.
The 21-foot research vessel had caught in
a spider-like web of cables beneath the
destroyer USS Fred T. Berry, whichs wa.
purposely sunk a year ago to formt part
of the reef.
A grappling hook firom a Navy ship,
gtided by a television camera abotird a

minisib from a cobweb of cables that had
trapped it 351 feet down, the Navy said,

WASHINGTON 13P)-The Senate Water-
gate investigating committee voted yes-
terday to postpone until next week the
potentially explosive appearance of John
Dean Il because of the visit of Soviet
L Lder Leonid Brezhnev.
I1 wvas announced also that the White
lfwise has dropped all objections to ques-
tioniing of Dean, ousted as White House
ciotuiset last April 30.
AND SPECIAL Watergate prosecutor
Archibald Cox said he is studying whether
a president may be subpoenaed or in-
dicted, but said the study is routine and

stoukln't lead to any conclusions by the
public.
The White House had claimed that Dean,
as the President's official lawyer, couldn't
be compelled to testify because of a
"double privilege": executive privilege
ant lawyer-client confidentiality.
The present White House counsel, Leon-
ard Garment, now has dropped both
claims of privilege for Dean, said Sen.
Howard Baker, Jr. (R-Tenn.) the minority
leader on the committee.
THE WHITE HOUSE also has left it to
the committee to decide whether national,

security should prevent bean from being
questioned publicly about some aspects
of the Watergate scandal, said Chairman
Sam Ervin, Jr. (0-N.C.).
Ervin and Baker appeared at a brief
news conference after the committee
voted in closed session to postpone Dean's
appearance until 10 a.m. next Tuesday.
The delay was requested by Senate Demo-
eratic Leader Mike Mansfield and Re-
publican Leader Hugh Scott. Dean had
been scheduled to appear today.
