Sept. 26, 1968 - Ann Arbor
High School has suspended three
male students and may suspend
another because their hair styles do
not follow the policies outlined by
the school administration.
The boys, already banned from
attending classes, have hair that
extends below the collar line. The
fourth male in question has side-
burns that grow below the center of
his mouth line.
The suspensions prompted a spon-
taneous walk-out yesterday by about
20 students. Another is expected
today after leaflets passed out yester-
day afternoon called for students to
leave their classes at 11:40 a.m.
Bairj Donabedian, one of the
suspended students, said Senior
Class Principal Charles Barclay
first warned the students' parents
in writing about the suspensions.
After Donabedian refused to cut
his hair, Barclay and the school
policeman informed him that he
could no longer attend classes.
Nick Kazarinoff, son of Univer-
sity Prof. Nicholas Kazarinoff, is
facing suspension because of his
long sideburns. The suspension
will go into effect on Oct. 1.
"I will not cut my sideburns,"
Kazarinoff had hair below his col-
lar last year, but had to cut it to play on
the high school baseball team. This
year, his hair is above the collar.

Paris as they assess the possibility

"We can confirm that they will

"But we are not providing any fur-

whether the meeting would happen

Cheney visits Michigan to
raise money for Bouchard
also rallies troops at
WYOMING (AP) - Vice Pres-
ident Dick Cheney first offered
his support to Michigan's mili-
tary personnel, then to U.S. Sen-
ate candidate Mike Bouchard.
Cheney spoke yesterday during a
rally at a Michigan National Guard
armory in the Grand Rapids suburb
of Wyoming before heading to a
$2,100-per-person fundraiser ben-
efiting Bouchard and the GOP.
The fundraiser was held at the
East Grand Rapids home of busi-
nessman Peter Secchia, a former
U.S. ambassador to Italy and a
major GOP donor and activist.
The event was expected to raise
$375,000 for Bouchard's cam-
paign against his Democratic
opponent, Sen. Debbie Stabenow,
and $600,000 for the Republi-
cans, officials said.
Several hundred people, most-
ly Guard members and their
families, attended the rally at the
Grand Valley Armory. Cheney
praised them for their service and
"It's been my privilege to work
with the National Guard over the
years, not just as vice president but
also during my years as secretary
of defense," Cheney said. "The
citizen soldier is absolutely vital
to protecting the nation. We know
that from our history and we know
that from current events."
The United States has no
choice but to go on the offensive
and hunt down terrorists, "and to
stay in the fight until the fight is
won," he said.
Dick DeVos, the Republican
candidate for governor, did not
attend the afternoon rally. Cam-
paign spokesman John Truscott
said DeVos missed the event
because he had been out of town
until returning to Grand Rapids
to attend a late afternoon func-

the Michigan Democratic Party,
criticized Cheney for not meeting
with the leaders of the Big Three
automakers while in Michigan.
Brewer also said Bouchard is

"It is typical that a Republican
like Bouchard is more interested
in Cheney raising money for his
campaign than having Cheney
tackle the problems the auto
industry is facing in Michigan,"
he said in a news release issued
by the party.
Sarah Anderson, a spokes-
woman for the Michigan GOP,
dismissed Brewer's comments and
labeled them as "more grandstand-
ing on behalf of Jennifer Granholm
and the Democratic Party."
"The president is meeting with
the Big Three after the election,"
Anderson said. "The president
of the United States is not going
to bow to political pressure from
