attorney's job quietly
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-Philip Van Dam, the United States Attorney fired
by President Carter last May, has decided to leave his job quietly
and without a fight.
"Upon careful consideration, I have decided not to litigate the
issue of my removal by President Carter," Van Dam said, basing
his decision on what he claims to be his belief in the "profession-
alism" of the office.
VAN DAM, 34, will vacate his eighth floor office in the De-
troit Federal Building August 15th, staying on long enough to help
his replacement, James Robinson, with the transition.
Robinson, a Troy attorney and a partner in the politically
active law firm of Honigman, Miller, Schwartz and Cohn, was
handpicked to replace Van Dam by Michigan's freshman Senator,
Donald Reigle..

any differently to female hitch-
"THE DECISION was really

it's not an invitation to sex."
Barbara Murphy of the Uni-

judge's reasoning.
"The judge is saying that
it's a crime of provocation.

she said. "If you leave money

Puppy love
Mary Torrisi believes pierced earrings can lead
to romance - or at least puppy love. She didn't
want to have the ears of her 3-month-old great dane
cropped in the traditional short-pointed fashion. So
she took Marmaduke to a jewelry store and had
one of his ears pierced., "Dobbie the dalmation,
next door, just fell in love with her when he saw
the silver earring. He just sat and stared, sort of
mesmerized. Now he follows her all around," says
Torrisi, 17, who received Marmaduke, named after
the comic-strip character, as a birthday present
from her parents. After okaying the idea with a
veterinarian, she checked with an ear-piercer at a
local jewelry store -- who said all right as long as
Marmaduke agreed. "I have this thing about ear-
rings," Torrisi explained. "I've always liked them.
And one day when I can afford it, Marmaduke and
