Officials plan for 'bash'

On the eve of the annual hash bash, area law enfor-
cement officials and local merchants say
preparations for this year's "forum of dissent" for
drug users will be no different from last year's.
According to Major Robert Whitaker of the Ann
Arbor Police Department, security at the April 1
event will not be stepped up becausetthe crowd is ex-
pected to be no bigger than in the past.
"WE WILL ARREST lawbreakers and protect
property, the same as last year," Whitaker said.
"Our attitude has not changed - it is still an illegal
The University Department of Safety will also not
provide additional security over last year, according
to Director Walt Stevens.

Merchants in the State Street area are not making
any special preparations for the expected crowds. A
spokesperson at Borden's Book Shop said in years
past the bash has not disrupted normal business
operations, but this year the store will be closed
tomorrow for inventory.
business will be as usual.
State Discount Manager Randy Smith said some
special arrangements will be made this year because
of the bash, but not as many as last year because
"it's not what it was."
Smith said some cigarettes frequently bought by
younger people, will be displayed and extra em-
ployees will be in the store.
LAST YEAR'S HASH BASH primarily attracted
participants from out of town. Ann Arbor Police Chief

William Corbett estimated that 90 percent of those at-
tending this year's diag event would not be local
The annual bash, which was begun primarily to
bring about the $5 pot law, has come under fire recen-
tly because it attracts so many outsiders. Corbett
said the yearly event costs the University Com-
munity and the City over $11,000.
Stevens urged students who are not interested in
the bash to avoid it and let those participating know
that they are unwelcome.
Stevens said any buildings with doors facing the
diag will be monitored. Students may be challenged
before entering and may have to produce a student
identification. Stevens also said the front entrance of
the graduate library will be closed, although the
south entrance will be open as usual.

Mackey defends cuts
before state Senate

LANSING (UPI) - Michigan State
University President Cecil Mackey
defended yesterday his plans to cut the
school's budget to a less than receptive
Senate Education Committee.
And the co-director of the Senate
Fiscal Agency warned MSU must not
only weather its current fiscal crisis but
should redefine its "basic role and the
scope and variety of its program."
MACKEY, DURING a hearing before
the Senate committee, maintained the
school's board of trustees was not out of
line when it declared MSU in a state of
crisis earlier this year, although no
other university in the state has taken
such action.
The MSU president has been under
fire for planned budget cuts he said
may not have to top the $29 million

figure often mentioned, including the
elimination or reduction of the nursing
program and several other schools.
Mackey, who has been MSU's
president more than 18 months, could
not explain to questioning lawmakers
why the nursing program had been
targeted for cuts while the university's
two medical schools emerged un-
David Murphy, co-director of the
Senate Fiscal Agency said yesterday
MSU must now re-evaluate its role as a
university as the state's ability to con-
tribute to its support diminishes.
"MSU has about 24 months to find the
answers," Murphy said. "MSU is
seriously overextended in regard to its
longtermsability to finance existing

ATLANTA (AP) - The body of a
black boy was found yesterday after-
noon in the Chattahoochee River in
southwest Fulton County, the 21st black
child to be found dead in the Atlanta
area in the past 20 months, authorities
"The only thing we know is we have
located a young black male that meets
criteria of those found recently,"
Fulton County Police Sgt. Denny Hen-
drix said.
Residents of south Fulton County
found the body about 3:30 p.m. while
boating on the river, Hendrix said. The
body was clad only in underwear and
was not decomposed, he said.
Members of the special police task
force that has been investigating the
slayings and disappearances of 22 black
children since July 1979 were called to
the scene shortly after the discovery.
Asked to estimate the age of the vic-
tim, Hendrix said he was "more than 10
years and less than 20."

Senate eliminates minimum
Social Security benefit
WASHINGTON-Senate Republicans, intent on giving President Reagan
the budget cuts he wants, ignored Democratic charges that they lack com-
passion yesterday and endorsed elimination of the minimum Social Security
On a vote of 55-39, the Senate rejected a move to restore $800 million in
spending to continue a guaranteed monthly benef it of $122.
The majority was made up of 51 Republicans and four Democrats. All the
opposing votes were cast by Democrats.
Academy Awards postponed
HOLLYWOOD-Organizers of the 53rd Academy Awards ceremony
decided yesterday to postpone the nationlly televised program for 24 hours
because of the assassination attempt on President Reagan.
ABC officials said the network would broadcast the show live at 10 p.m.
EST today.
It was the third time the awards had been postponed. The first time was in
1938, when torrential rains prohibited the awards on March 3. They were
held a week later.
The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 also prompted post-
ponement of the Oscar presentation from April8 to April 10.
Supreme Court upholds
Black Panther conviction
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court cleared the way yesterday for
California authorities to imprison Black Panther Party founder Huey
Newton on his 1978 conviction for gun possession, even though the charge
hinged on an earlier case which was overturned.
The justices refused to disturb the Oakland decision, in which Newton was
sentenced to serve two years for violating a state law barring the possession
of guns by convicted felons.
State Deputy Attorney General Clifford Thompson in San Francisco said
there is a possibility that Newton will be put on two years probation instead
of being sent to prison. That will be up to the state trial judge, Joseph
High court will hear dispute
over Soviet cargo boycott
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to settle a con-
troversy sparked by the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan-whether
longshoremen may protest international "bullying" by refusing to handle
Soviet cargo.
The justices will hear arguments by shippers-rejected by lower cour-
ts-that the continuing boycott of Soviet trade by the International
Longshoremen's Association violates labor contracts.
The union began the boycott in support of former President Jimmy Car-
ter's January 1980 announcement of anti-Soviet trade sanctions, including
the grain embargo. In a resolution, the union told its members not to handle
any cargo bound for or coming from the Soviet Union.
State high court limits
application of gun law
LANSING-The Michigan Supreme Court ruled yesterday the unarmed
accomplices of gun-toting criminals can be convicted under the state's tough
felony-firearm law only if they helped get or keep the weapon.
The unanimous decision is likely to antagonize presecutors who pushed
hard for adoption of the crackdown law, which provides a two-year man-
datory sentence for persons who possess firearms during commission of a
General Motors calls for
clean air rules revision
DETROIT-General Motors Corporation called yesterday for thorough
revisions in auto exhaust emission rules and compliance procedures, in-
cluding relaxation of som tailpipe pollution standards it already is able to

GM said it wants the government to stop testing individual cars and in-
stead measure anti-pollution compliance by the quality of the air.
Smith said scientific evidence is accumulating that the carbon monoxide
and oxides of nitrogen standards for 1981 are unnecessarily strict.
