AFFIDAVITS ORDERED
Watergate hits Detroit

By DAVID STOLL
With Wire Service Reports
As the result of a decision
handed down in Detroit's U.S.
District Court Monday, key fig-
ures in the Watergate affair may
be subpoenaed to appear in De-
troit to testify about White House
plans for illegal spying on radi-
cals and their lawyers.
U.S. District Judge Damon
Keith ordered the feredal govern-
ment to submit affidavits by Sep-
tember 3 stating whether or not
its agents used illegal procedures
to gain evidence against mem-
bers of the SDS-Weatherman fac-
tion charged in the "Detroit 15"
Bdlbing Conspiracy."
JUDGE KEITH also ruled that
if the affidavits did not satisfy
the defense attorneys, t h e y
could subpoena witnesses - key
figures in the Watergate investi-
gation - for a hearing Septem-
ber 24.
"The whole Watergate crowd
will probably be in town unless
they dodgeethe process servers,"
Detroit defense attorney William
Goodman said Mdhday.
Attorneys for the four due to
stand trial in the conspiracy case
claimed the government used il-
lgal methods to gather evidence,
perhaps involving the W h i t e
House "plumbers" unit.
GOODMAN TOLD the D a i l y
yesterday that while there is
"concrete" evidence only that
defendant's phones were tapped,
there is "some evidence" that
the homes and offices of the de-
fendant's legal counsel were

burglarized and that conversa-
tions between the defendants and
their counsel were monitored by
government agents.
Last month the government
admitted the illegal wiretapping
of the SDS National Office. In
addition, Newsweek magazine
has revealed that the W h it e
House's Intelligence Evaluatioli
Committee, later known as the
"plumbers," engaged in illegal
spying and sabotage activities
against the SDS-Weatherman fac-
lion and the Vietnam Veterans
Against the War.
During the hearing Monday, it
was disclosed that investigators
for the special Watergate pro-
secutor Archibald Cox and the
U.S. Senate Watergate Commit-
tee were studying the Detroit case
for possible conections with their
probe of illegal governent activi-
ties.
FOUR MEMBERS of the Wea-
therman faction of the SDS are
charged in the case with plotting
a nation-wide bombing campaign
at a secret meeting in Flint in

1969. Fifteen persons were in-
dicted in the case, eleven it
whom still remain fugitives.
"The government is not pre-
pared to say whether misconduct
took place," said William Ibers-
hof, head of the criminal division
of the U.S. attorney's office in
Detroit.
"Archibald Cox has been aware
of the activities in this case,"
Ibershof said. "If there's any in-
vestigation, it should be' inde-
pendent of this case and prosecut-
ed separately."

Benjy Schultz, 'U' Cellar employe and former LS&A student, won
the state's Road Champion race Sunday - a grueling 120 miles
of cycling at the GM proving grounds near Milford. The new state
champ, well-known among Ann Arbor's "serious" cycling set,
finished the course in five hours, twenty-eight minutes, and eight
seconds.
WVVorkers- on sti ke
at Michigan State
EAST LANSING (UPI) - Unskilled workers honored picket lines
set up yesterday by 220 skilled workers at Michigan State University
(MSU) but university officials pledged that essential services would
be maintained.
Keith Brody, vice president for labor relations at MSU, called the
walkout illegal.
THE STRIKE by members of Local 999 of the American Federa-
tion of State County and Municipal Employes AFSCME - most of the
masons, pipefitters and plumbers - began Monday night in a classi-
fication dispute.
The 1,090 members of AFSCME Local 1585, which covers mainte-
nance and janitorial employes, showed up on campus yesterday but
told their superiors they could not cross picket lines. The local sched-
uled a meeting last night to take its own strike vote.
Local 999 President Chuck Jennings said the university was at-
tempting to classify members of both locals together, an action he said
would "downgrade" members of his local.
