Flower pushers
invade campus
The Indian Paintbrush is the state flower of
S Wyoming.,
It is also Ann Arbor's newest flower shop, and
a portable one at that, currently located near the
Engin Arch,
"I've worked for florists for a few years and
knew the prices were outrageous in flower shops
here," says third year architecture student Bill
Kratz; co-founder of the shop.
"I couldn't get any other job so I decided on
LSA senior Rion Berg, the other co-founder,
also was unable to find a job and though he has
hacd no previous floral experience, Rion says he
"thought the idea was good and I've known Bill
since Markley."
The Indian Paintbrush is a homemade wagon
painted white with shelves, counter' and storage
space for the flowers, all topped by a fringed green
and white striped awning.
Bill and Rion are outfitted in reversible red,
pink, yellow and white striped vests with matching
barbershop quartet hats.
And, of course, the assortment of flowers adds
the final touch-daisies, roses, Chrysanthemum
plants and hopefully, Bill says, "some smaller
garden plants."
"This setup has super-low overhead," says Bill.
"That's the reason our flowers are so much
The shop has only been open since Friday and
Bill says "Business is twice as good as expected.
"We sold out both Friday and Saturday," Rion
adds. "Our plans are to stay open from 10 a.m. to
9 p.m. but we've been running out of flowers.
The only problem the shop may face is location.
The permit to operate the store is from the city,

Three representatives of the

way to Hanoi where they plan to
establish diplomatic relations be-

the "real United States."
The representatives are Jeanine

and Judy Gumbo of Berkeley,

The three Yippie representatives
attended the international anti-
war conference in Stockholm two
months ago where they met with
people from North Vietnam, North
Korea, and the National Libera-.

"We have been invited by the
North Vietnamese government,"
says Mrs. Rubin. "We are a new
nation, not the nation of Presi-
dent Nixon. We hope to establish
our own diplomatic relations and
gain recognition."
"This is the first time that
young people have gone to North

communist support for the Youth1
International Party-it is a mis-
sion of solidarity for the goals of
the Vietnamese people," Taube
"They want to bring back first-
hand information to communicate
to Americans," Taube added. "We
believe the Vietnamese are win-

without the support of the people."

State legislature may consider
U' budget appropriations today

LANSING P) - State Senator
Charles 0. Zollar, chairman of the
Senate Appropriations Committee,
said yesterday that the key ap-
propriations for the state's major
colleges, universities, and junior
colleges may be reported to the
Senate floor today.
The appropriations report is ex-
pected to be substantially lower
than the $333.7 million Gov. Wil-
liam Milliken recommended.
If the appropriati6ns are cut

lower than Milliken's recommen- ]
dation, according to executive of-
officers, the University's tuition|
levels may be forced up higher '
than the new levels set by the
Regents in April.
The tuition levels adopted by the1
Regents last month were recom-1
mended by the executive officersk
on the assumption that the Legis-
lature would approve an appro-
priation to the 1970-71 general
fund of $75.7 million-the amount1
recommended by Milliken.
According to Vice President for
Academic Affairs Allan Smith, an
appropriation of less than $75.7
million would force the adminis-
tration to either cut back on ex-I
penditures from the general fund,

liken himself endorsed. Furtherl
cutbacks, Copeland said, are quite
possible but a matter of degree.
Even the $75.7 million which
the governor recommended for the
University represents a sharp cut-
back in the appropriation which
the University originally requested
last October.
That request-for $84 million-
would have provided an increase
of $15.5 million over this year's
general fund expenditures.

protest slayings
By The Associated Press
National Guard were removed from Augusta, Ga., yester-
day, and Atty. Gen. John Mitchell visited Jackson State
College in Mississippi as several black groups prepared for
mass demonstrations against the killing and "repression" of
blacks and students.
In Augusta, where six blacks were shot to death last week
during racial volence, a curfew was also lifted.
The Augusta City Council approved establishment of a
biracial human rights commission, a demand made by black
leaders after the trouble.
The Southern Christian Leadership Conference prepared
for a 100-mile protest march through Georgia, beginning
today. Plans were made for a

A second resolution passed along
with the proposal of the budgetary
commission urged "greater faculty
involvement at budget meetings."
The proposed budgetary com-
mission is essentially the product
of growing faculty sentiment that
overall budget priorities should no
longer be made exclusively by the
Regents, President Fleming, and
the seven vice presidents.
Considerable interest in budget-
making was generated during the
recent strike by the Black Action
Movement for increased black ad-
"This commission will assure
wider participation and wiser de-
cisions on the budget processes
and priorities," said history Prof.
Gerhard Weinberg yesterday.
Under the proposal, Fleming
would appoint a 12-member Com-
mission on Resource Allocation,
composed of three faculty mem-
bers, three students, three execu-
tive officers, and three members
of the Academic Affairs Council,
which consists of the deans of the
University's 17 schools and col-
leges, and the directors of the
various institutes.
The proposed commission would
study and "make recommenda-
tions" on:
-The current and future ex-
penditure of the University's nn-
earmarked funds, totally about
$120 million annually;
-Methods for "allowing the
University community to be better
informed on budgetary matters,"
-Possible alterations in the
process by which the University's
budget is determined, and priori-
ties are set. This would be done
both at the University-wide level
where overall priorities are now
set by executive officers, and at
the school and college level, where
each faculty has full authority in
allocating its share of the Univer-
sity's non-earmarked funds.
The new committee established
in order to encourage increased
faculty and student involvement
in political change, will investi-
gate such possibilities as the re-
arrangement of the University
calendar in order to allow time for
students and faculty to actively
lobby for legislative change, the
establishment Of workshops to
study means for effective political
change, and the creation of a
clearing house for the dissemina-
tion of information and channel-
ing of efforts.
The new committee will be com-
posed of one member from the
Academic Affairs Committee, the
Student Relations Committee, an
the Committee of University Re-
lations, and six members from the
general university community.
Assembly directed the new com-
mittee to report on its findings at
its next meeting June 15.

U.S. plans
WASHINGTON (RP) - The gov-
ernment plans a major step-up in
its campaign against narcotics
smugglers, concentrating on At-
lantic and Gulf Coast ports.
The drive, aimed primarily at
heroin and cocaine, is still under
discussion in t h e Treasury De-
partment and the Customs Bur-
eau, but Asst. Secretary Eugene T.
Rossides confirmed yesterday Iit
will begin about June 1.
Rossides emphasized t h a t the
campaign will not be similar to
last fall's Operation Intercept,
which was designed to cut off the
flow of marijuana from Mexico.
Although both Treasury and
Justice Department o f f i c i a ls
claimed t h a t was a success, it
caused considerable friction be-
tween the U.S. and Mexican gov-
ernments. Some of those involved
said it was a poorly concealed ef-
fort to persuade the Mexicans to
crack down on growers of the 11-
legal plant, which they did.
The new campaign, Rossides
said, will be a "permanent up-
grading of t h e enforcement"
whereas Intercept lasted less than
a month. In addition to the per-
manent upgrading there may be
occasional periods of rigorous
"blitz" inspections lasting a few
Rossides said the new program
will mean an "increase in enforce-
ment intensity throughout the na-
tion, with emphasis on the North-
eastern and Southeastern quad-
It will extend at least as far
w e s t as New Orleans and al-
though Rossides said he could no
giv~ the definite boundaries of
the greatest effort, it apparently
will affect parts of the Canadian
border as well.
It will supplement a new and
stiffer inspection program set up
in January to concentrate on
stopping heroin smuggled through
New York.

Inner-city kids on roller skates

"Next to money," says Nancy
Berla of the Model Cities Office,
"the primary concern of inner-
city kids is roller-skating."
Roller skating? "Man, roller

junior who is one of the more
than 200 skaters who roll
around the Slauson Junior High
School gym every Friday and
Saturday night.
