lWarrants issue in 'crater di

Local anti-war activists
to surrender on Monday
Warrants were issued yesterday for the arrests of four
local anti-war activists charged with digging symbolic bomb
craters on the Diag May 19.
Charged with malicious destruction of property were
Genie Plamondon, member of the Rainbow Peoples Party,
Jay Hack, former administrative vice-president of Student
Government Council, John Goldman, 73 and Richard
England, Grad. Police are also seeking a warrant for an
unnamed juvenile.
The warrants are signed by Frederick Davids, head of
the University's Safety Dept. The University has pressed
for police action ever since the craters were -dug.
"We are not doing this to make an example," said
Davids, "but to prove that we meant what we said when we
warned them not to dig on these Diag sites."
Despite Davids' earlier claim, that the digging was
done by "off-campus bums" three of the four for whom
warrants were issued were. students. Plamondon is not a
Plamondon and Hack have
indicated that they will turn
themselves in to the police
Monday afternoon. "We all f
will probably turn ourselves
on Monday," said Hack.
Goldman and England could
not be reached for comment.
According to Police Chief
Walter Krasny, "If we have
assurances from their law-
yer that they will turn
themselves in we won't go
out and arrest them."
More than four persons
may appear at police head-
quarters Monday, however.
"We are going to have a
meeting at Mark's coffee- Diag dig-in
house at 11 Saturday to de-
cide things," said Plamondon. "We are going to send out a
call to all our friends to come and turn themselves in
along with us on Monday."
The police have been processing the digging case for
almost two weeks. Delays have arisen because of "consul-
tation with the University, some of the judges were at a
conference on Mackinac Island, and the long holiday week-
end," Krasny said. "We thought it best to hold them over,"
he added.
The validity of the charges-malicious destruction of
property under $100-has been questioned by local attorney
,Perry Bullard.
The decision of guilt or innocence, according to Bullard,

SEN. HUBERT HUMPHREY (D-Minn.) on the stump in California yesterday, speaks with a voter
about the unemployment issue. Recent polls from the state show Humphrey fighting an uphill
battle against his primary opponent, Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.).

heavily on his experience as

The "new" Hubert Humphrey
attacks his major opponent,
Sen. George McGovern (D-S.
D.) at 'every opportunity. His
speeches made very clear his
feelings on McGovern. -
He assails McGovern's plans
to cut defense spending, to
abolish welfare and to re-write
the tax laws. i each case, he
states the facts - as he wishes
them to be seen.
Although Humphrey agrees
changes should be made, he as-
serts that McGovern is prac-
ticing "tie policies of decep-
tion," and refers to McGovern's
plans as "schemes."
McGovern proposes to abolish
the present welfare system, re-
placing it with a minimum in-
come program. His program
would be financed by higher
tax loads in the upper Income

brackets and closing loopholes.
Humphrey, on the other hand,
is satisfied with the basis of the
present welfare system He pro-
pos:s increased social security
benefits and the use of federal
investigators to end cheating.
He too favors, but to a lesser
extent, the closing of loopholes.
Humphrey claims that the
McGovern plan will require
higher taxes in the lower and
middle income brackets. "I
know his scheme is wrong," he
said. "I will have nothing to do
with it, whether I'm president
or in the Senate." McGovern in-
sists the plan will cost only the
high income tax payers.
Humphrey also decries Mc-
Govern's alternative defense
proposal. "This plan," accord-
ing to Humphrey, "will make
the U.S. a second class power."
The attacks on McGovern
are not confined to issues alone.
The latest charge, by Humph-
rey's campaign manager, is that
McGovern has spent over the
proposed limit on media. Mc-
Govern vehemently denied the
charge. It has been discovered
that the allegations were based
not on actual accounts but only
on projections by the Humph-
rey staff.
But there are definite signs
that even Humphrey's aggres-
sive tactics may not be success-
Speaking on a morning show
yesterday, he admitted that he
was "thin on cash." Figures re-
leased yesterday show that Mc-
Govern has far outspent Hum-
phrey on television advertising,
in a state where media is con-
sidered crucial.
Humphrey maintains, how-
ever, that his campaign is gain-
ing momentum, especially since

the televised debates.
But estimates by polls show
that McGovern is leading, per-
haps by a large margin. One
poll shows his victory margin at
15 per cent.
While these figures are not
conclusive they indicate that
Humphrey is running an uphill
battle. Although he claims that
the admitted McGovern lead "is
withering away rapidly," it is
apparent that he has a long
way to go for a victory next

City plans new signs

Over the next few months Ann
Arbor motorists will be con-
fronted with a bewildering array
of new pavement markings and
traffic signs.
It's all part of a drive by the
U.S. Department of Transporta-
tion to standardize traffic con-
trol devices throughout the coun-
try and move towards adoption
of internationally recognized
highway signs.
In Ann Arbor, the city Traf-
fic Engineering and Transporta-
tion Department is already busy
making the change-over, repaint-
ing streets and phasing in new
According to Arthur Cuendet,
traffic sign supervisor of the
department, work on repaint-
ing the streets should be -om-
pleted by the middle of this
month. The new signs, which are
being put up as old ones wear
out or are damaged, should all
be up by the end of 1973.

If you find yourself baffled by
the display of arrows, single
lines, double lines, and bent,
broken or curving lines, you're
not alone.
The new system seems almost
as confusing to the police as it
is to the regular, garden-variety
The exact interpretation of
each marking is still a topic of
argument among police them-
selves raising the question: "If
they don't know how do they
expect us to?"
The answer is that things will
be taken a little easy at first,
with the department trying to
instruct motorists, in the new
system, and perhaps giving
warnings instead of tickets for

pavement markings will feature:

way streets;
