Ticket to

Paradise?

Some 'U'n

7u '

A

By SUE INGLIS
In addition to the 95 Michigan football players who will be
making the trip to Pasadena this month, certain University
officials; members of the Athletic Department staff and
selected student representatives will also receive free trips
to the Rose Bowl.
Under an agreement with Conlin-Dodds Travel Agency,
for every 50 of the more than 500 student tour packages that
have been sold, one University representative could be ap-
pointed to serve as a tour guide. Those tour guide positions,
which include free transportation and lodging in Pasadena,
will be offered to selected student leaders and several faculty
and staff members.
STUDENTS INVITED to serve as tour guides include
Michigan Student Assembly President Marc Breakstone and
University Activities Center President Neale Attenborough.
Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs Chairman
Arch Naylor also has been invited.
. Additionally, University Health Services will select a
doctor and a nurse from its staff, and the Office for Student
Services also will name a staff member for a tour package.

Furthermore, both Breakstone and Attenborough are
each authorized to appoint two students to receive free trips.
"I don't think I'm qualified to select those people," said
Assistant Vice-President for Student Services Tom
Easthope, explaining that he has asked Attenborough and
Breakstone "to be careful in their selections." Although At-
tenborough said he is not yet sure whom he will appoint,

Breakstone said he has appointed MSA Vice-President Virna
Hobbs, and "chose out of a hat" MSA member Sheri Young.
Homecoming queen Sherrie King also will have her Rose
Bowl transportation and accommodations funded. The
University's Office for Major Events has agreed to pay for
King's transportation and lodging at the request of the Office
of Student Services.

Band reserves to stay home

ree ride' to Rose Bowl

By STEVE HOOK
"The size of the performing band
shall be limited to the actual number
of band members or 196, whichever
is less."
- "Regulations regarding
Rose Bowl participation,"
drafted by the
Rose Bowl Committee
"I'd love to take the reserves, but

we have to follow the rules."
-Eric Becher,
Marching Band Director
Michigan's football team and mar-
ching band are preparing for their trip
to the Rose Bowl-the tenth such west-
ward journey in the University's
history. For the first time, most of the
reserve bandmembers will stay home,
this time around.
The Rose Bowl Committee, a group of

officials from the Big Ten and Pac-10
athletic conferences, imposes the
following limits on Rose Bowl par-
ticipants: 95 members of the football
team, 196 marching band musicians,
and 29 auxiliary band members
(cheerleaders, managers, etc.). To
comply with these regulations, ban-
dleader Eric Becher will bring just four
of the 23 reserves to Pasadena.
"IT WOULD be nice to bring every
member of the band," Becher said,
See BAND, Page 8

EASTHOPE SAID he does not yet know which OSS staff
member will make the trip to the Rose Bowl, but explained
that "it is not a plum for people on the staff." The staff per-
son's duties will include "making sure that the travel agency
does what it says it will," said Easthope. The duties of the
other tour guides involve passing out tickets on the plane on
the way to California. Easthope will also attend the Rose
Bowl to make sure things run smoothly, but will be paying his
own way.
The University Health Services has not yet named the
recipients of its tour packages.
According to Big Ten regulations governing the Rose
Bowl, the University will be able to send an "official party,"
including the Governor of Michigan, the University
President, the University Regents, and members of the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics and their
spouses.
WHILE ON THE trip, these representatives have no
specified duties. Additionally, no more than 95 members of
the football team are eligible to have their trips financed by
the Big Ten Conference. Eleanor Jessup, a Big Ten Con-

ouster of
wsU
xeditors
By DAVID MEYER
A student coalition at Wayne State
Upiversity has collected more than
1,300 signatures demanding the
dismissal of two student newspaper
editors because of their alleged refusal
to print dissenting opinions, a coalition
spokesperson said.
The coalition, organized by the Spar-
tacus Youth League, will go before the
WSU Board of Governors tomorrow
claiming the newspaper, The South
End, has refused to present alternative
viewpoints on its editorial page.
Coalition members will argue that
such a refusal constitutes adequate
grounds for dismissal.
SOUTH END, Editor-in-Chief John
Burnett, one of the students targeted by
the coalition, called the group's claims
"ludicrous." Burnett said the dismissal
movement was the result of his refusal
to support the opinions of the Spartacus
Youth League, the primary critic of the
newspaper.
"They (the SYL) simply don't like us
because we're not supportive of their
political viewpoints," Burnett said.
"I'm not anti-leftist. But I'm not going
to turn the South End into a leftist
publication."
The coalition, called' the Ad Hoc
Committee to Oust South End
Apologists for Klan/Nazi Murder,
claims the support of many local labor
unions, the NAACP, and "many
! prominent Detroit lawyers."
THE COALITION'S petitions deman-
ding dismissal of the editors, urges
students to "reassert control over what
is nominally a forum for our diverse
opinions and views."
Burnett, while acknowledging a
change in editorial policy has taken
place, said the committee's claim that
the South End will not print alternative
opinions is "patently untrue."
"The truth of the matter is that I
won't give them (SYL) a forum," Bur-
nett said. "I dion't give them a campus-
wide voice." Burnett added that the
SYL has its own publication and that it

From AP and UPI
NEW DELHI, India-Soviet
President Leonid Brezhnev offered the
United States and other countries
yesterday a five-point plan to guaran-
tee peace in the turbulent Persian Gulf
in place of the "Carter Doctrine" for
U.S. defense of the oil-rich area.
In a major policy address concluding
a state visit to India, Brezhnev rejected
Western claims of a "Soviet threat" in
the gulf and called on the United States,
China, Japan, and other countries to
join Moscow in renouncing force,
military bases, and nuclear weapons
from the strategic area.
BREZHNEV TOLD the Indian
Parliament that, "In contrast to the
imperialist doctrine with regard to the
Persian Gulf countries, we propose a ,
doctrine of peace and security."
In Washington, State Department
spokesman Jack Cannon said the issue
of military withdrawal from the gulf

interests would coincide. We are highly

Persian Gulf and elsewhere," Cannon
said.
LAST JANUARY, responding to
Soviet intervention in Afghanistan,
President Carter announced the United
States would erect a military shield
around the Persian Gulf ,to safeguard
oil supplies vital for the West. In what
was called the "Carter Doctrine," the
United States sent aircraft carriers and
other naval units to waters near the gulf
and declared the region off-limits to the
Soviet Union.

An apology

A story in yesterday's issue of the
Daily made an inappropriate
reference to the 1970 tragedy at Kent
State University in which four per-
sons were killed at an anti-war
demonstration.
The story; a preview of last night's
Michigan-Kent State basketball
game, attempted to draw a crude
parallel between the fates of the four
victims and the predicted fate of the
Kent State basketball squad.
Such an insensitive comparison,

never should have been printed.
The staff members responsible for
the writing and publication of the
story have acknowleged the poor
judgment that accompanied the,
decision to print the offensive por-
tions of the story.
The Daily apologizes for the ill-
considered remarks and regrets any
feelings of resentment they may
have foster.ed among our readers.

Editor's note: This is the first in a two-part project
analyzing past, present, and future energy programs in
the city and at the University.
By ELAINE RIDEOUT
In hopes of averting future energy shortages, city and
University officials are taking the first steps toward im-
plementing conservation measures.
"It is appropriate for local government to assume leader-
ship in conservation activities," said Larry Friedman, coor-
dinator of city energy programs in the city Community
Development office. "It's easier for local agencies to get
things done because they can easily work with residents and
businesses to carry out energy conservation activities," he
explained.
FRIEDMAN SAID the city and University are working
together on energy answers because "the end is in sight" if
local energy consumption continues at its present rate.
Without some form of solid waste recycling, the city lan-

tcampaigns
dfill will be filled within ten years, Friedman said.
And according to a University Utility System study com-
pleted in 1979, future energy needs of the University will have
to be met by alternative fuel sources.
"WE SPENT A total of $23.2 million state-wide on energy
costs last year," Jack Weidenbach, director of the University
Office of Business Qperations said recently.
But, he said, various energy conservation measures have
saved the University $9.9 million over a 6-year period.
Although the University has been studying and implemen-
ting cost-effective means of energy conservation since 1973, a
similar energy program for the city was begun only last
January.
SINCE THEN the city has applied for and received federal
and state grants to fund energy conservation awareness
programs. The Michigan Energy Administration has spon-
sored a $25,000 bicycle promotion program, for example, and
provided $10,000 toward an AATA ridesharing program.
