Bias charged

while the temporary school will
be 33% black.
When the Clinton School con-
troversy came before the school
board last February, McPherson
suggested a "pairing plan," in
which all students in kindergar-
ten through second grade would
attend one school together and
all third through fifth graders
would attend the other school.
His plan was defeated.
Striar says, "Although' the
school board's temporary school
plan is only designated for one
year, if they defeated the pair-
ing plan last year, it's unlikely
they'll pass it in a year. So the
area will remain separated. Our
clients want a plan that will
provide for a racial and econo-
mic mix in the schools."
School Board member Henry
Johnson commented, "I think
the suit is an excellent move,
and I'm very pleased that it's
been filed. I supported the pair-
ing plan originally, and I per-
sonally think that the Board's
decision is patently discrimina-
tory and won't stand the test
of law.

left," the round two winner
confided to reporters. But Chet
Procter, a 22 year old, 275
pound University of Arizona
student, prevailed, and clock-
ed in at 3:20 to win the re-
gional prize for the Plymouth
"You have to forget your
physical self," Procter com-
mented on his ordeal, but then
went on to predict that he
could "finish off another one
of those sandwiches. Actually,
they're quite good," he admitted
with a grin. The hefty, clean
cut winner, an advertising and
marketing major, wore a brown
golf shirt and a big wide grin.
With the preliminary contest
over, the big shopping spree
Procter had hoped for mater-
ialized. "I'm going to head for
the canned hams," he grinned,
and so he did. At the end of
three minutes of panting along
the meat counter and through
the desert section, the barefoot
athlete Proctor had amassed
$117.31 worth of groceries.
The contest managers remark-
ed that it had been a "pro-
motional success," but they
would make no promise to in-
stitutionalize it or bring it to
this immediate area.

Bribes cause passage of
Viet bill, critics charge

Dispatch News Service
SAIGON-A recent bill auth-
orizing President Nguyen Van
Thieu unlimited powers passed
in the South Vietnamese Sen-
ate as a result of bribes, ac-
cording to opponents here,
"Never before have such ex-
orbitant bribes been offered
Congressmen for just one vote,"
Tran Van Tuyen, a leader of an
opposition bloc in the lower
house, disclosed recently about
passage of the bill June 2'.
According to opposition Con-
gressmen, President Thieu,
pressing for a needed majority
vote to make the bill law, made
lucrative offers, including Sai-
gon villas, around the world'
tickets for two, and more than
$12,000 in Vietnamese piasters
to any senator who would turn,
from the opposition to pro-
Thieu forces.

Earlier in the day, before the
special midnight session oc-
curred, the chairman of the
Senate, Nguyen Van Huyen, re-
fused to convene the Senate,
claiming that three opposition
senators had been placed under
house arrest by President Thieu.
Opposition forces, unable to
muster enough votes to stop the
bill's passage-as a result of
the missing senators-walked
out of the Senate chamber late
in the afternoon.
Technically speaking, the un-
opposed vote -means that Presi-
dent Thieu assumed full execu-
tive control illegally, since a
quorum was not present when
the vote was taken.
Thieu's opponents are now ex-
pected to contest the action on
legal grounds, including inves-
tigation of alleged bribes of-
fered those who voted in favor
of the bill.

Owners vie for
liquor hcenses
(Continued from Page 3)
State St. points out that the
lowered age of majority has
made it desirable to have a li-
quor outlet "available to this
segment of the population at a
convenient location to them."
Many establishments have
promised to provide live enter-
tainment and no cover charge,
according to De Grieck.
Davy's Locker on the corner
of Packard and Platt pledged
not only to provide entertain-
ment for students but to ob-
tain this entertainment in
whole or in large part from the
student body of the University
of Michigan."
Although claims of "youth
appeal" are most popular this
year, other angles abound.
The owners of the Betsy
Ross Shop, in Nickels Arcade,
point out that their establish-
ment is "the oldest continu-
ously operating restaurant in
Ann Arbor" dating back to
