Meese refuses to testify
in draft resister's case

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S.
government yesterday refused to obey
a court order directing White House
counsel Edwin Meese III to testify in a
draft resister's trial, and acknowledged
that the refusal probably meant the
charges would be dismissed.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard
Romero said he expected the case
against David Alan Wayte to be thrown
out, but added "following the dismissal,
the government will promptly pursue
an appeal."
Wayte, 21, was charged with refusing
to register for the draft. His attorneys
maintained he was being prosecuted
because of his vocal opposition to draft
registration.

The government also refused to give
defense attorneys White House
documents pertaining to draft resister
prosecution policy.,Defense attorneys
say those documents would prove their
arguments of selective prosecution.
"As we have explained at some length
in other pleadings in this case, it is our
position that important governmental
interests are at stake in connection with
our claim of privilege, which we sin-
cerely believe have not been shown to
have been overriden in this case," said
the written refusal filed with U.S.
District Judge Terry Hatter.
"Nor can we concur in the Court's
conclusion that a sufficient basis has,
been established to justify requiring the

appearance and testimony of an official
as senior as the Counselor to the
President," the document said,
referring to Meese.
There was not immediate response
from Hatter, who on Thursday had
given the government until noon
yesterday to notify him whether it in-
tended to comply with his orders.
Defense attorney William Smith, com-
menting outside the courtroom Thur-
sday on what he described as "total in-
decisiveness" by the government, said
he believed the White House documents
must contain "politically em-
barrassing" material "or else they (the
government) wouldn't be fighting this
hard."

Monopoly's monopolythireatened

*by influx o
BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) -
Monopoly's popularity once assured it a
spot on the Boardwalks and Park
Places of the game industry. But slip-
ping sales and competition from video
games have forced its maker to try new
ways of selling the game that
celebrates American capitalism.
"It has always been a simple case off
keeping Monopoly in the public eye
because the game was so big and so
popular that it would take care of it-
self," says R. Bruce Jones, the vice
president of sales at Parker Brothers.
"We just find that is not enough now."
TO BOLSTER Monopoly sales, the
company is breaking two of its rules: It
is actively advertising and it is
tampering with the game, adding a new
computer accessory.
Americans have been wheeling and
dealing across the Monopoly board sin-

One man's trash is another man's treasure, and a local
recycling group is taking action to get a bit more of
everybody's trash to turn into treasure.
Recycle Ann Arbor, a volunteer civic group, plans to ex-
tend its curbside pickup service to cover nearly half the city
by next spring, according to Director Kerry Sandford.
BACKED BY a $100,000 grant from city council last year,
Recycle Ann Arbor began construction of a new processing
center Sept. 29, Sandford said. The new building will house
sorting facilities and a cardboard and paper bailer.
The new building, along with the planned purchase of a
specially-designed truck, will boost the organization's collec-
tion capability from its current level of 17 percent of the city
to 32 percent, Sandford said.
Fifty percent of the city should be covered with the addition
of glass-handling equipment and more volunteers, Sandford
said. Coverage of the entire city is the goal planned for the

next year or two, he said.
SANDFORD SAID he would like to see a greater increase
in the amount of recyclables from the University since it is
the largest producer of waste paper in the area.
"They produce about 1,000 tons (of waste) a month, 900
tons of it paper," said Sandford. "Ten tons of it gets
recycled" by Recycle Ann Arbor, he said.
The University could save hauling costs by recycling more,
but the group would need more volunteers than it has now to
handle the extra work, Sandford said. "Right now it's costing
(the University) about $50 a ton to haul it away.
JOHN WEIDENBACH, University Business Operations
director, said that the cost of a full-scale recycling operation
would be prohibitive because several full-time employees
would have to be hired.
In addition, Weidenbach said, coordinating the recycling
would be difficult because each building would have to keep
recyclables separate from other waste.

keeping Monopoly in the ublic eye because

1967, borrowed the street names from
Atlantic City, N.J., for his game.
As a result, people around the world
have been building houses and hotels on
Mediterranean Avenue and Marvin

80 million sets were sold and Monopoly
was considered the king of the board
games.
MONOPOLY fanatics have gone, to
great heights - and depths - to prove
their devotion. Among Monopoly

But in recent years Monopoly's
popularity has slipped. Jones says
sales have dropped from 3 million
games in 1974 to the 2 million mark last
year.
Now Parker Brothers is doing
something virtually unprecedented in.
the history of Monopoly. It is adver-
tising the game, budgeting $4 million to
pitch Monopoly and a new electronic
brain designed to jazz up the game.
THE GADGET, called Playmaster,"
keeps track of the action, cuts com-
plicated loan deals and even rolls elec-
tronic dice with musical accom-
paniment. Playmaster tweedles out
"I've Been Working on the Railroad,"
when a player lands on a railroad
square and "Merrily We Roll Along,"
when it rolls doubles on the dice. The
ominous opening notes of Beethoven's
Fifth Symphony sound why Playmaster
calls back loans.,
"This adds a number of new elemen-
ts, it makes it a faster more aggressive
game," says Jones.
Playmaster, which has been on the
market since September, sells for $6.
Sor far, according to Jones, it is a suc-
cess.
