Kelly trial,
(Continued from Page 3)
A PRESIDING judge has no
authority to deny a peremptory
challenge, but Campbell ended the
proceedings as if no challenge had been
made by adjourning the courtroom
without granting the challenge.
"I don't know what happened,' Noah
said afterwards, referring to his
challenge. Waterman likewise said he
did not know why or by what authority
Campbell made that decision.
Campbell's move to postpone the
challenge comes in the midst of a com-
plaint Waterman has voiced regarding
the absence of blacks on the jury.
"WE HAVEN'T even seen 4 percent
black jurors," Waterman said later,
referring to Washtenaw County's 22
percent black population. "This (the
r jury) is supposed to be a cross-section
of the community."
The trial is scheduled to begin next
Monday.

SOME HAVE HUNDREDS
Profs get booked up at the Grad

By CHARLES THOMSON
Although building a personal library takes years of
work and vast sums of money, some University
professors can, and do, stockpile hundreds of books-
with a little help from the Graduate Library.
Under the current circulation rules of the Harlan
Hatcher Graduate Library, faculty members can
borrow an unlimited number of books. And some
professors, taking full advantage of the opportunity,
have as many as 500 books checked out at the same
time.
A SURVEY last year showed that between 25 and 30
faculty members each had more than 100 books from
the Graduate Library in their possession, according
to Jim Cruse, head of Circulation Services for the
Hatcher Library. Books may be kept indefinitely if
renewal notices periodically are mailed in and the
volumes are not demanded by others.
Cruse, however, said the library is "not really"
concerned about the number of books professors have
borrowed from the library.

"I WOULD be glad to giveit to the

shocked than the senator must be."
Byrd then asked if Dole meant to
suggest, by inference, that "those who
may be demagoguing the issue on the
other side and downtown are word, nc
Democrats also?" "demos"

Webster's, in giving the origin of the laughter.

"If someone really needs (the books), we know
where they are," Cruse said. "I see nothing wrong
with people having 100 or 200 books."
CRUSE SAID some faculty members might use the
library as a handy way to establish private collec-
tions. "It's possible," he said, "but I think the library
would be on very dangerous ground if we started to
question what is legitimate use and what isn't."
Some professors assert that the library's
borrowing privileges, coupled with the size of its
collection, are an important attraction for the
University.
Charles Tilly, a professor of history and sociology;
said the policy has eased considerably his work on
three research projects. Tilly currently has an
estimated 500 books from the library. Some of the
volumes have been checked out for as long as six
years, although they typically are returned within
three weeks, Tilly said.
TILLY SAID his three projects employ one full-
time person whose major responsibility is keeping

track of the library books used by the project.
Tilly, who has done research at the University of
Toronto and Harvard University, said the University
has "a better library for our purposes than either of
those."
Undergraduates are allowed many of the same
borrowing privileges as faculty members, Cruse
said, including the ability to renew books an
unlimited number of times. Undergraduates,
however, cannot renew books through the mail and,
unlike professors, are fined for overdue books.
Cruse said he found it amusing that persons with
hundreds of books checked out often return books
very promptly when others request them, but that it
is people "with three or four books that resort to
making up stories."
"Some of our best borrowers have large numbers
of books charged out," he said. "The number is not
the issue."

BERKELEY, Calif. (UPI)- The key
to the mystery surrounding the disap-
pearance of the dinosaur and other
species from the face of the earth 65
million years ago may lie on the bottom
of the Caribbean, a new report has
suggested.
The report, published in the May 21
issue of Science magazine, directly
relates the extinction of certain species
with the bombardment of the Earth by
meteorites and other celestial bodies.
THE EVIDENCE, independently
reported by scientists in Berkeley and
New Jersey, links the extinction of five
species of plankton called radiolaria, to
meteors that struck 34 million years
ago. It also bolsters growing belief the
extinction of dinosaurs"was"c~ued by a

collision with a giant meteor, asteroid
or comet.
The evidence is described in the
magazine in two reports on an
unusually rich layer of the rare element
iridium from deep-sea sediment cores
pulled from the Caribbean.
The iridium is accompanied by
deposits of tiny bits of glass called
microtektites, believed to be the cooled
remnants of molten rock sprayed out-
ward by large meteor impacts.
"It is difficult to avoid the implication
major meteorite impacts have played a
role in the evolution of life on Earth,"
said chemist R. Ganapathy of Phillip-
sburg, N.J., who authored one of the
Science reports.
