LISBON - Gen. Antonio de Spinola, head of
Portugal's military junta, was installed as
president yesterday and warned minorities
against interfering with plans for democracy
in Africa or at home. Be said the future of
Portuguese Africa, beset by revolt for 13
years, would have to be decided democratically
by those who live there. "They will have to be
left complete freedom of decision, and in Af-
rica, as here, we will prevent in every way
pressure from minorities, whoever they may
be, that could hinder the free development of
the democratic process," Spinola said. He did
not specify what minorities he meant. In Af-
rica, the whites are a minority.

CHICAGO - John'Butterbrodt, president of
Associated Milk Producers Inc. (AMPI), the
nation's largest dairy cooperative, said he met
with political advisers of President Nixon in
1972 and discussed government antitrust ac-
tion filed against the co-op. He also said that
he met with Secretary of Agriculture Earl
Butz and other unnamed politicians in at-
tempts to stop the antitrust suit. Butterbrodt
testified during the taking of a sworn deposi-
tion in connection with about 20 civil suits
filed by the government and private parties
in the milk matter. The dairy industry con-
tributed more than $700,000 to the 1972 Nixon
campaign.
LOS ANGELES - "The Autobiography of
Miss Jane Pittman," a CBS movie about a
black woioan whose life began in slavery and
ended at the birth of the civil rights move-
ment, won four Emmys, including best actress
in a special, for Cicely Tyson. Hal Holbrook
was named best actor in a special program
for "Pueblo." Telly Savalas, of "Kojak," and
Michael Learned, of "The Waltons," won Em-
mys as best lead performers in a drama
series. Mary Tyler Moore, of "The M a r y
Tyler Moore Show," and Alan Alda, of
"M ASH," received Emmys as the best comedy
stars. The awards will be presented May 28
in a prime time ceremony to be telecast by
NBC.

WASHINGTON - Unions representing about
750,000 telephone workers sought big pay hikes
in negotiations free from government wage
guidelines for the first time in nearly three
years. Representatives of the American Tele-
phone & Telegraph Co. met with bargaining
committees from the AFL-CIO Communications
Workers of America, the AFL-CIO Internation-
al Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the-

Alliance of Independent Telephone Unions. The
outcome of negotiations will have a major
economic impact.
PHILADELPHIA - More violence was re-
ported in connection with the shutdown by
militant truckers seeking lower fuel prices and
higher speed limits. But authorities said the
strike action still wasn't having much effect
on traffic. Pennsylvania state police report-
ed 17 incidents of trucker violence, including
two sniper attacks. Shooting incidents also
were reported in Missouri near the Arkansas
border. No injuries were reported, and of-
ficials in most states said truck traffic was
either normal or nearly normal.
State
LANSING - Six state lawmakers charged
with drafting anti-obscenity legislation huddled
in a crowded storage room at Lansing City
Hall yesterday to view a confiscated porno-
graphic film. Along with several police offi-
cers and reporters, the representatives viewed
a 12-minute color film entitled "Horse Power"
which showed explicit acts of bestiality. The
film was confiscated by Lansing police from
an underground theater which was not licens-
ed to operate. Mayor Gerald Fraves noted that
the theater's failure to be licensed was the rea-
son for the film's confiscation, and that based
on the state's pornography law alone, no con-
fiscation could have been made.
DETROIT - Four gunmen rounded up 18
patients, students, and employes at a Univer-
sity of Detroit psychology clinic, forced them
to disrobe, herded them into a tiny room and
robbed them. One woman was dragged from
the room and raped. Police sent dozens of offi-
cers to the clinic, located in a low building one
block off campus, in a fruitless hunt for
the bandits. But police spokespersons said
the victims were so terrorized by their hour-
long ordeal that it was difficult for them to
give descriptions of the men. Officials of the
university, which has an enrollment of 9,000,
said they were sure the bandits were not stu-
dents.
Weather
Storm on the run. As another storm system
moves rapidly through our area within the
next 24 hours, we'll receive warm weather to-
day and cooler weather tomorrow. The storm
system which is causing this rapid change
will also produce showers and thundershowers,
most probably at night. Under mostly cloudy
skies we'll have maximum temperatures today
67 to 72 with minimums tonight 50 to 55.

By DAVID BLOMQUIST
Friends of Newsreel, a stu-
dent film group affiliated with
the New Morning media coop-
erative, is being investigated by
the Student Organizations Board
of Student Government Council
for alleged membership and fi-
nancial irregularities.
The Board has instructed
Newsreel to bring its present
membership roster and com-
plete financial records for the
past year to a special public
meeting to be held in the SGC
offices at 7:30 tonight.
ACCORDING TO Elliot Chi-
kofsky, SGC member and
chairman of the board, "there
are indications in the way of
letters from distributors that
this group (Newsreel) may not
be complying with the require-
ment that it keep a good credit
rating."
Newsreel spokesman Glenn
Alford refused comment.
Other sources close to News-
reel, however, found it diffi-
cult to believe that the organi-
zation - which acknowledges
that it is in debt - could have
committed any gross accounting
errors,

Due to a proofreading error,
yesterday's Daily appeared to
report that President Nixon's
Watergate lawyer James St.
Clair told the HouseJudiciary
Committee Nixon had prior
knowledge of the Watergate
break-in. In fact, St. Clair re-
portedly told the committee that
evidence furnished by the White
House shows Nixon had no prior
knowledge of the crime.

er HRP City Council members

Nevertheless, a spokesman

has created a bad public im-
age for all University movie

ting rid of themselves," he
said.
