Schmidt to

(continued from Page 1)
THE FINAL straw appeared
to be when Guenther Guillaume,
47, a pudgy-faced political af-
fairs aide in the federal chan-
cellery, was arrested as an East
German spy on April 24.
Although other members of
his government, chiefly Horst
E h m k e, came under much
h a r s h e r opposition attack,
Brandt took upon himself "polit-
ical responsibility for negligence
in connection with the espionage
affair Guillaume," as his letter
of resignation expressed it.
Ehmke, formerly chancellery
cchief and now postal minister,
hired Guillaume in 1970. A spec-
ial report released by the gov-
ernment Tuesday in the wake of
Brandt's a u d d e n resignation
showed that Guillaume received
security clearance despite sus-
picions that he had been a Com-
munist agent even before his
1956 "defection" from East to
West Germany. --

transcripts to know that much,

I don't think there's been enough
evidence for people to be saying

"I think he ought to be im-

doubt about that, but the tapes
cleared it up."-Jean Schoner,

"the real culprit is Paul Was-

Postil has charged that the
program's shortcomings can be
largely traced to what he calls
Wasson's administrative incom-
petence. Sources close to the
program confirm that Wasson
was inadequate in a variety of
administrative areas - rang-
ing from delegating responsibil-
ity to standardizing procedures
for dealing with inmates, and
for moving inmates into various
aspects of the program.
But the same sources say that
Postill knew about Wasson's
shortcomings for more than a
year, and chose to overlook

UNIVERSITY President Rob-
ben Fleming told the Regents
that this reflected poorly on the
University's image and they
authorized the administration to
take steps necessary to prevent
similar occurences in the future.
Fleming has presented two
options for the University con-
cerning the film groups:
-withdraw entirely the rental
privilege of University facilities
to all film groups; or
-ask the organizations to devise
their own guidelines.

from Cinema Guild, Cinema II,
The Ann Arbor Film Co-op, and
New World Films, the faculty
and film operators in attendance
seemed to oppose both options,
which they said represented cen-
sorship in one form or another.
They also seemed to agree
that beyond the surface issue of
censorship the larger issue at
stake is fiscal accountability of
the various film groups.
In the past the University has
attempted to channel all the
film groups' fitds through Uni-
versity accounts to exert control
over the organizations.

them. They say that Wasson's
failure to move the program
along rapidly was ignored for
political reasons - specifically
because as a black ex-con and
a well respected man in the
community he was a valuable
public relations tool.
In addition, the fewer risks
Wasson took, the less chance a
major crisis could develop.
The major question now cen-
ters around the future of a pro-
gram whose ambitious design
had received national attention,
and the degree to which Postill
will now make a serious com-
mitment to rehabilitation rather
than to partisan politics.
In that light, Postill's interim
appointments are questionable.
The appointment of Frank Don-
ley as jail administrator, ac-
cording to well-informed sourc-
es, was made despite the fact
that Postill knew Donley had
serious personal and adminis-
trative difficulties in his pre-
vious position as an inmate-

Postill has worked hard,
both prior to his election and
since, to project a progressive
image. Observers, including
some very close to the sheriff,
admit that his reputation has
been tarnished by the events of
the lost month, and that the
firings may have been a serious
political mistake.
