MSU professor loses
12-year tenure fight
CINCINNATI (UPI> - A federal ap-
peals court yesterday rejected a college
professor's 12-year effort to obtain
tenure at Michigan State University.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
ruled Dr. John Hildebrand's con-
stitutional rights were not violated when
Michigan State refused to grant him
tenure in 1968.
HILDEBRAND, who had criticized
the schools's social sciences depar-

police after hearing the.screams of her
sorority sister, who had seen the
suspects entering the house.
The culprits were apprehended and
escorted to the police station for
questioning, but were released later
because the complainant decided not
to press charges. Wright said that the
