Regent Power asks state
to rule on possible conflict


Page _Three'


University Regent Sarah Pow-
er (D-Ann Arbor) is seeking an
aivisory opinion from the State
1t sard of Ethics today on whe-
ther her husband's business re-
1ti)nship with the University
constitutes a conflict of interest
for her.
"ower's husband, Phillip, is
a major shareholder in Sub-
tran Communications, the par-
e, company for a chain of sub-
urban weekly and bi-weekly
newspapers in northwest De-
troit. He also holds an interest
in Averill Press, a printing and
tvIsesetting company.
A typographical omission in
an item in Saturday's Daily
on financial assistance pro-
vided by the University to the
city left the mistaken impres-
sion that administration offi-
cials said the University re-
ceived continuous service from
23 police officers.
In fact, the U n i v e r s i t y
claims that it has not received
ongoing service from all 23
officers, and has offered fund-
its for only 11 jobs in the up-
coming fiscal year.

POWER SAID last night the
extent of his company's activi-
ties with the University were a
series of advertisements for
course offerings at U-M Dear-
born, and bids that Averill had
entered for University printing
jobs. Power said the total cash
vatoe of the transactions came
to "no more than $300 to $400
a year."
Power said his wife, who
could not be reached for com-
ment last night, had written to
State Attorney General Kelley
in February, asking for a list
of guidelines and recommenda-
Kelley subsequently referred
the matter to the State Board
of Ethics.
"The point is that public of-
ficials must behave absolutely
punctilliously," said Power,
whose father, Eugene, was forc-
ed to resign from the University
Board of Regents in 1965 be-
cause of conflict of interest
Executive Secretary to the
Board of Ethics, Donald Willis,
said last night he was uncer-
tain whether the state Code of
Ethics covered cases involving
elected officials. He added if
the Board rules the Power case
it not within its jurisdiction, it
will be referred back to Kelley.

Special to The Daily
Editor's Note: Daily Spec-
ial Projects Editor Barbara
Cornell has spent the past
week attending showings and
conferences at the 28th Inter-
national Cannes Film Festi-
val, Here is her report on
what the motion picture indus-
try considers to be The
Event of the cinema year.
CANNES, France - It would
be somewhat inaccurate to say
that the 28th Cannes Film Fes-
tival is in Cannes. Rather, one
would have to say it is Cannes.
The streets are peppered with
some of the most elaborate
movie posters the world h as
ever known. They're every-
where - on buildings, in build-
lags, plastered to cars, e v e n
hanging on the trees.
THE MOVIE mish mash fea-
tures such well-known releases
as Lenny and Alice Doesn't Live
Here Anymore - but also more
little-known films, like S e x -
plorer, and Barely Proper: The
Naked Truth About Nudism.
There are enough X-rated mov-
ies advertised here to make
even the New York Erotic Film

Festival blush. (But then, art
is in the eyes of the beholder
-and who is to say that Seven
Delicious Wishes, billed as the
"first X-rated musical," won't
be next year's smash hit?)
In general, however, reaction
to this year's schedule has been
one of solemn disappointment.
While a few films have emerg-
ed with favorable appraisal,
critics here have, for the motst
part, condemned the amount of
violence filmmakers seem to be
splattering across the screen
this year.
But the festival itself was not
without its share of 'violence. A
bomb threat the day before the
showings began at the Palais
des Festivals, general h e a d-
quarters for the event, almost
kept the affair from opening.
A few days later, a nearby air-
plane factory was also hit by
a bomb threat.
YET DESPITE the tragedy
that shrouded the early days of
the festival, there is an air of
quiet anticipation now as -at-
tendees await the final verdict
of the judges.
The American entries, Lenny
and Alice Doesn't Live H e r e

Anymore, were both very well
received, but they may be etim-
inated from judging due to a
technical rule violation. Films
in competition at Cannes a r e
not supposed to have been
shown before the festival out-
side the country in which they
were produced. Both Lenny and
Alice, however, have 'aeen
shown in Canada - considered
by distributors to be part of
the U.S. market.
Although the machinery of
the festival has begun to grind
to a halt as distributors a n d
film buyers conclude business
and leave for home, thrmgs
still remain for the last few
showings and the presentation
of awards.
