The newsman said the inmate lead each
of the hostages to the door and demanded
to negotiate with Daggett.
The inmate saokesman did not specify

not clear if the man knew of the killing,

Watergate wording
Btough we are bombarded by it al-
it constantly, the term Watergate only
has a moderate chance of making it into
the perimanent recordbooks of the Airer-
ican languaoge according to University
word historian Richard Bailey. Bailey
claims that in its present form Watergate
is being used largely as a verb, as in
the expression, "Don't Watergate me out
of imy mane'." Verbs, it seems, are rath-
er unstable creatures. Prof. Bailey sug-
gests we start using Watergate as a noun
or see it perish from the language for

controversial incident came April 1,
when he smoked a joint in front of the
television cameras at Ann Arbor's Sec-
ond Annual Hash Bash.
Bullard was busted at the notorious 1-96,
1-496 interchange south of Lansing, where
there is absolutely no legal place frotn
which to thumb and where many a poor
hitchhiker has met an intransigient state
police patrolman.
State Rep Warren O'Brien (R-Warren),
who introduced an unsuccessful motion into
tse legislature to censure Bullard after the
hash Bash, told The Daily he has no plans
to po after Bullard for hitchhiking.
O'BRIEN DID say, however, that he
"can't understand why the goty perpetually
and continuilly is breaking laws."
Although Bullard said he will pay the
$11 fine for "pedestrian on freeway" with-
out protest, he vowed yesterday to push-
at some indefinite time in the future-for
"pull-off areas" at interchanges and
"little heated and lighted booths" in which
hitchhikers could wait for rides.
"I think people should hitchhike more,"
Bullard said. "It's ecologically sound."

convention on Mackinac Island. Friends
had driven him as far as the interchange
where the police snagged hins.
"I decided to play it straight," said Bul-
lard. "I don't think they figured out I was
anyone but Winston Perry Bullard."
After writing the ticket, police drove hine
to the Okemos exit just down the road and
let him off at the top of the ramp. He got
home two hours later.
IN AND OUT OF radical causes around
Ann Arbor for as long as memory serves,
Bullard beat Human Rights Party candi-
dhate Steve Burghardt for the seat in the
lep-slature last November with a cam-

Since taking office, ie has championed
prison reform, reform of the state's penal
code --including the legalization of mari-
juana--and the passage of a newsmen's
shield law.
Most recently Bullard participated in an
unsuccessful attempt to quash a state loan
to the classified research laboratories out
at Willow Run.
