Rep. Delbert Latta (R-Ohio),
standing next to Seiberling, told
reporters, "I can't agree with
that."
WHEN ASKED how he would
characteri-,e the discussion,
Latta replied, "They examined
all the options."
As they emerged from the
morning session at which they
heard tapes of the first two con-
versations, committee members
said they had heard nothing to
prove the allegation that the
price increase was tied to po-
litical contributions.
Rep. Hamilton Fish (R-N.Y)
said "there was certainly noth-
ing sinister. It was the kind of
farmers talk you'll hear at any
meeting like that."

THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Thursday,, June 6, 1974

"F ORTY' minutes of dribble,"
commented Rep Charles Ran-
gel (I-N.Y.).
Members heard the President
thank the dairymen for their
support but they said it sound-
ed on the tape like gratitude for
over-all backing of administra-
tion programs rather than for
financial pledges to his re-elec-
tion campaign.
In discussions with White
House and Nixon campaign
aides, dairymen had pledged to
raise $2 million for Nixon's re-
election campaign. The amount
they actually came up with fell
far short of that goal.
THE WHITE HOUSE issued
a statement last January ac-
knowledging that the President
was aware of the $2 million
campaign pledge but saying it
did not influence his decision to
order the price support in-
crease.
The President has contended
that a major factor in the deci-
sion was his belief that the
Democratic-controlled Congress
was preparing to pass legisla-
tion increasing milk price sup-
ports, a move that would have
cost the President political sup-
port from dairymen.
Rep. William Cohen (R-
Maine) said the milk price case
"calls into question this whole
issue of campaign financing re-
form."

WSU radicalism erupts

with us, boy. We mess around
with punks like you every day.
Down at the station, I'm gonna
take the cuffs off, and its gonna
be just me and you boy, just me
and you'."
The issue of who swung first
and who delivered the injurious
blows will be resolved in court
on June 13 when the six who
were arrested face trial.
Ironically, the two students
whose arrest ignited the protest
were released the next day,
when Recorders Court Judge
Justin Ravitz found the arrest
warrants invalid.
"IT LOOKED really fishy to
me," Ravitz said. "They showed
me sime bullshit papers and a
copy of the arrest warrant that
didn't even show what they had
done. I saw no basis for holding
them. and cut them loose."
Student response to the in-
cident has been almost non-
existent. And the university, al-
though it will be prosecuting the
protesters, is equally uncon-
cerned.
"We don't have much in the
way of student interest, let

alone radicalism," said Alan
iyman, assistant to the presi-
dent. "My Lord, our enrollment
is over 33,000. If a few students
raise a ruckus, that doesn't
make us a radical campus."
NORMAN Schlafmann, secre-
tary to the board of governors,
blamed outside agitators for the
disruptions and said those pro-
testing were doing so for public
attention.
"We had nothing at Wayne
till all this started, It's a corn-
mttting campus, and as such,
there isn't much cohesion on
student issues. They go to
school, and then they go to their
jobs. It's just not that kind of
campus."
True to form, the campus has
been reacting very slowly if at
all to the issue. A few petitions
have gone out, and a few
sparsely attended rallies have
been called. Student reaction
was best characterized by one
senior who was totally unaware
of the incident.
"THEY DID what?" he ask-
ed. "I didn't know that. When
did all this happen?"

"The apathy seems to build
up more and more," said Tom
Schram, outgoing editor of the
school paper, the South End.
"Two years ago, 5,000 voted is
the student government election.
Last year 3,000 voted. This year,
the elections brought out 1,500."
"The radicals," he continued,
4'are a small group of pea ole
that are very dedicated. They
realize that even though small,
they can be very powerful. rte-
cause the niovement is largely
a grass roots effort, the urban
environment allows them to at-
tend a university 'ike ours
where there are more jobs, te
housing is cheaper and the tui-
tion is less."
- NO ONE is claiming to know
what it was that sparked this
latest sign of campus radical-
ism. The university claims it
was an isolated incident. The
students, those who know about
it, say that it's just a vocal
minority, but no one really
claims to have the answer.
One professor, whose work
has been the target of radical
protest, mused, "Maybe your
radicals are just smarter."

OUR SERIES OF FILMS STARRING
Glenda Jackson
WINNER OF TWO ACADEMY AWARDS as
BEST ACTRESS Continues with
""Sunday,
BI ySunday"
with PETER FINCH and MURRAY HEAD
Directed by John Schlesinner
Screenptav by Perielope Gilliatt
Love in London . .. A chic menane a trois
"John Schlesinaer's 'SUNDAY, BLOODY SUNDAY' is a film
of such subtlety, such oerception and such maturity that it
makes all other films-even the best of them-that pretend
to deal with the wav we live in 'adult' terms seem adolescent
and superficial. It is not only a furtherino of the creative
skills of the director of 'Darlina' and 'Midninht Cowbov' and
therefore a fascinatinoty beautiful film in technique and
performance, it is also a multi-leveled consideration of the
love we live bv the settlements we make to continue that
hvina, the innocent destroyers the generations brine soon us.
Conceived by Schlesinaer, with a screenotav by Penelope Gil-
liott, the film critic whose writinas are marked by delicacv
of feelina. its very contemporarv story of trionaular love is
ultimatelv brought to scarinaty compassionate universal
terms. It is that rare film that illuminates the deeper corners
of the heart, that probes bevond the obvious concepts, that
exoands our understanding."-Judith Crist, NEW YORK
MAGAZINE
'SUNDAY, BLOODY SUNDAY' is Schlesinger's ('Darling,'
Midnight Cowbov') wisest, least sentimental film, and al-
most perfect realization of Penelope Gilliatt's orional screen-
plov . . Miss Gilfatt has the extroordinary ability to create
intelligent characters who don't sound like mouthpieces, to
capture those looks and sounds of the surface of things that
suggest the universes iust beneath, and to write dialoaue
that is simultaneously rueful and funny, and as spontaneous
as love itself. Its a movie of unusual tensions and reserves
. . . 'SUNDAY, BLOODY SUNDAY' opened vesterday at the
Coronet Theatre. where. I'm sure, it will remain for a Iona
lona time."-Vincent Canby. NEW YORK TIMES
"One of the best movies I have ever seen. Certainly it is
John Schlesinoer's finest work to date as a director. Glenda
Jackson has never been better. Peter Finch Gives the per-
formance of his career. Miss Gilliott's screenolav is so true,
so heartbreakino. so uncluttered-both pungent and poia-
nant without tellino too much or spoilinq our illusions about
the characters she has introduced us to. It is a towerinq
achievement. Here, at lost, is a truly adult film--bv, for.
and about adults. I don't think I'll see a better movie than
'SUNDAY, BLOODY SUNDAY' this vear. Just think. Some
sporadic moviegoers never see a movie this Good all their
lives."-Rex Reed

(Continued trwii Page 1)
Democrats called the "liberal
caucus," state strong opposition
to tracking as do Human Rights
Party (HRP) candidates Larry
Mann and Astrid Beck.
"IF YOU LOOK at who's in
the lower tracks, you find main-
ly blacks and poorer people,"
explains Simpson. "The schools
have not been doing their job
to give everyone an equal edu-
cation. We must do away with
tracking completely."
Moderate candidates E. Ste-
vns Binder, William Cash and
Manfred Schmidt also oppwe
the tracking system.

"TRACKING locks in kids,"
says Binder. "I think it's an
immoral abomination. People
should be able to move in and
out of different programs, and
e v e r y o n e, including college-
bound students, should be able
to learn vocational skills."
Liberal and moderate candi-
dates agree with HRP that
there is a need for more stu-
dent involvement in decision-
making. None, however, have
yet supported 14-year-old Larry
Mann's write-in candidacy for
school board.
Mann will not appear on the
ballot because he is too young
to be a registered voter and
therefore cannot hold iffice un-

MANN AND BECK are the
only candidates to push for stu-
dents as voting members on the
school board.
At present, students are rep-
resented by advocates who ad-
vise the board but may not vote
or enter into debate at public
meetings.
"It's fundamentally undeuno-
cratic not to allow students to
be members of the board that
rules their lives," states Mann.
NONE OF THE conservative
candidates support the concept
of voting student members on
the board.
"I don't know why students
should necessarily be able to de-
bate with the board any more
than any other group," Wright
says. He opposes student vot-
ing members since "you must
draw the line on maturity some-
where. "
Many liberal and radical can-
didates stress the need for ex-
tending full constitutional rights
to students, especially freedom
of speech, guarantees of due
process and protection from un-
reasonable searches.
CONSERVATIVES either deny
thatthese rights are abridged
under present school policy or
say the problem is eclipsed by
discipline requirements.
"We may have to bend over
backwards and it may infringe
on a few constitutional rights,"
says Kolasa, but "when disci-
pline is re-established, 'the
rights will no longer be in-
fringed,"
On another issue, liberal and
radical candidates, particularly
HRP hopefuls, indicate they feet
schools are guilty of sexual dis-
crimination. Most candidates
agree that girls' athletic pro-
grams should be funded equally
with boys' .programs.
HRP CANDIDATE Mann ar-
gues that "male students are
allowed priority in the use of
facilities and coaches," while
"women are barred from par-
ticipation in many sports.
In reply to HRP charges of
sexism, conservative Wright
admits that "an argument can
be made that sexism exists" but
claims, "If a choice of courses
is totally open, I don't see how
it is discrimination if girls
choose feminine roles."
A twelfth candidate in the
school board contest, liberal
Eliot Chikofsky, announced his
withdrawal from the race Tues-
day night, citing the crowded
liberal field.
However, Chikofsky's n a me
will still appear on the ballot
Monday because thetdeadline
for official withdrawal had al-
ready passed.
