A FacultyStudent
CIA Investigation

NO COMMITTEE composed solely of
faculty members should undertake an
investigation of CIA activity on campus.
President Robben W. Fleming sent a
letter Monday to the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs (SACUA)
asking their opinion on whether an in-
vestigation should be . conducted. He
also asked what form a possible inquiry
should take.
Fleming's immediate recognition of
the seriousness of the issue is to be com-.
mended. However, even if SACUA rec-
ommends an inquiry, serious problems
would remain regarding the structure of
the investigation.
At present most faculty meetings are
closed to students, and it seems likely
that SACUA would choose to conduct an
investigation of the CIA-University nexus
in the same way.
SINCE FACULTY members have an in-
stitutional interest in protecting their
colleagues . from unfavorable publicity,
such closed meetings would leave serious
doubts in many minds about the com-
pleteness of the investigation.
The seemingly obvious solution would
be to hold a public inquiry. Unfortunate-
ly, such an investigation would also be

ineffective. Faculty members probably
would refuse to discuss such a delicate
subject publicly. The resulting evasive-
ness of those asked to testify would ser-
iously limit the effectiveness of the in-
vestigation.
Considering the possible, alternatives,
student representation on the investigat-
ing committee would provide the most
effective means to insure a fair, impar-
tial, and credible inquiry.
While they are concerned members of
the University community, students are
relatively free from the organizational
pressures which might be felt by faculty
members.
STUDENT PARTICIPATION on the in-
vestigating committee is especially
necessary since contacts between the CIA
and the University have not been re-
stricted to faculty members. For at least
one student has been approached by CIA
agents.
A substantial student minority would
add balance to an investigating commit-
tee. As full voting members they could
both represent the concerns of the stu-
dent body and dispell any doubts about'.
the validity of the committee's report.

AFTER A TENSE and anxious
week, The Daily Crossword
Puzzle winners have finally been
chosen. There were 41 entries from
over a hundred people, most all
filled with snide remarks about
mistakes in the puzzle. But then
nobody's perfect-except perhaps
the people who submitted the six
correct entries in the contest. (Not
even one of them could correctly
answer the whole puzzle and note
all the mistakes I made!)
In any case, before announcing
the winners, it is interesting to
find the most common errors. All
the generally incorrect squares
were in isolated unconnected
boxes, where only knowledge of
University trivia and not cross-
checking could help. Thus, the
most-missed answer was 10 Down
("SGC's Business Objective")
which is incorporation (ine), as
a good SOC-watcher would know.
Second most commonly missed
was 4 Down, the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors
(abbreviated AAUP), which draft-
ed recent statements on academic
freedom and campus protests.
Other common mistakes included
misspelling 44 Across, Catholepis-
temiad, stumbling over the name
of a leading University expert on
Japan (25 Down), Prof. Robert
Ward, who is director of the Cen-
ter for Japanese Studies; and
Clark Kerr's distinguishing phy-
sical characteristic (93 Down),
"bald."
The correct puzzle answerers
were:
Thomas R. Copi.
Rod Chu (and his roommates at
Bursley).
Maura Bluestone, Thomas Koep-
sell, and Jerry Kolins.
Stan Koper (who submitted two
puzzles w i t h Catholepistemiad
spelled differently in each).
Barbara Clack.
Wystan and Angelyn Stevens.
BEFORE TURNING to the
Grand Prizewinner, it is interest-
ing to note some of the response
from the -puzzle fans. All were
quick to jump upon my more ob-
vious mistakes: 77 Down was omit-
ted where Athlete was written in;
50 Across was defined as "Hebrew
for day" when it should have been
L
To the Editor:
IF BIG TEN conference rules
state that a merchant may not,
of his own free will, allow special
privileges to whom ever he pleases
or dictate other such absurd reg-
ulations, then the rules surely need
revision; especially if these rules
are unenforcable and commonly
disregarded within the Big Ten
conference.
I've just said in one sentence,
without incriminating anyone, in-
censing the public, without ir-
reparably damaging or jeopard-
izing anyone's career, what Clark
Norton and Howard Kohn seem to
be pointing out. But the timing
and tactics of their so-called "ex-
pose," as well as the very fact that
they think they've uncovered a
"secret," quite clearly exemplifies
their truly naive and superficial
understanding of intercollegiate
athletics. "Double standards" and
"hypocrisy" cannot be defended.
Neither can muckraking, coupled
with the total disregard for the
real effects that such precocious

"Hebrew for good" (Hebrew for
day is "Yom"); the picture above
the puzzle was identified as being
21 Down when it should have been
20 Down-Inglis House. (Coinci-
dentally, 21 Down was the last
three letters of Acacia or CIA-
which became stunningly appro-
priate with the next day's Daily.)
MORE SUBTLE mistakes were
"Latest regent" of 68 Down (Otis
Smith, the proper answer, was
appointed last spring, Frederick
Matthei Jr. during the summer);
61 Down was South Quad for the
first upper class dorm when ac-
tually Fletcher Hall was the first
upperclass dwelling; and no num-

ber for the Down between 17 and
18-which could have been 101
Across's initials.
But even those of you who point-
ed out the errors slipped up. For
instance, Jean Suttin and Judy
Silver each submitted puzzles with
notes attached, saying "I've over-
looked your mistakes, plqase over-
look mine." And both had 21
Across as "clop" instead of co-op.
The "Sunday New York Times
Magazine Crossword Puzzle Group
at WUOM" fell victim to The
Daily, stumbling over the two
most common mistakes of mis-
spelling Catholepistemiad and try-
ing ind instead of inc for 10 Down.
And there was Prof. Edward G.

Voss of the Botany Dept. who la-
belled the puzzle "one of the most
pleasant and entertaining-not to
mention original-things I have
read in The Daily over the past 18
years." Thanks Professor, and re-
member, it's AAUP, not ANUP.
ANOTHER ENTRANT deserv-
ing mention is Veitch Reinhart,
Class of 1942. who completed a
near-perfect puzzle with the aid
of two other generations - from
the Class of 1916 and the Class of
1968. The only thing slipped up
on was 11 Down, "UAC"-which
after all, wasn't around in 1942.
One other bit of praise to the
Honors Council secretaries, who

had their completed puzzle at The
Daily by 9:30 a.m. the first morn-
ing. Unfortunately, they stum-
bled on 11 Down, which was IFC,
not IHC.
The Grand Prizewinner was
Thomas R. Copi, '69 Ed, who sub-
mitted an absolutely perfect copy
at 5:30 a.m., the day of publica-
tion. "I picked up The Daily as
soon as it came off the press,"
confessed Copi, who admits he
hasn't bought a Daily since he
came to the University five years
ago.
COPI BEGAN attacking the
puzzle about 3:30 a.m., and with
the help of a few volumes of for-
gotten lore he was done before
sunrise.
Which clue did Copi find the
hardest? "I think 10 Down-
'SGC's business objective' (in)-
was the toughest," says Copi, who
is best known for running for SGC
President last year and serving
on Council for several months last
fall. "I never follow SGC activity,
and since I had the 'I' and 'N,'
Just started going through th
alphabet. Needless to say, I found
it pretty quickly."
COPI ALSO admitted having
trouble with 91 Down-"the con-
dition of Joy Adamson's pet." He
had "Fred" inserted until he re-
membered the famous lion was
born "free."
Copi was most surprised by 15
Down - "bs" --identified as "ad-
ministrative pronouncements are
tinged with this." "I didn't think
you'd have the nerve to print
that," he said.
Copi considers the puzzle the
greatest innovation in The Daily
Editorial page sincehsigned edi-
torials. (That is the promis~d
misquote in the prize interview.)
Copi revealed that "Son of Daily,
Crossword Puzzle" is rapidly
reaching completion, and will
splash onto the newspaper's pages
in a matter of weeks.
"By the way." concluded Copi,
"would you please include in the
interview that I'm in the School
of Education, People think every-
one in the Ed School are stupid."
"It's 'is stupid,' Tom.
"O.K. Is Stupid."
n
(Jan. 23 and 27 respectively) ap-
peared in The Daily concerning
"Negro History at the White U."
An exchange of letters between
Dr. Willcox and Connye Hunt pre-
cipitated Richard X's response.
Both his article and letter point
out glaring errors in the reasoning
and "facts" of Dr. Willcox. I have
yet to read anything more from
Dr. Willcox.
At this time, I cannot help but
interpret Dr. Willcox's silent re-
sponse as an admission of his lack
of an answer. Does the unrespon-
siveness of the history depart-
ment lend credence to the asser-
tions of Richard X? Does their
silence admit their culpability?
The issue of the advisability of a
black history course is out in the
open and can no longer be whis-
pered about in the back corners
of Haven Hall.
It must be discussed; nay, it
must be implemented!! We will be
relentless in our efforts.

A New Pentagon Play Toy

TREAT NEWS from communications ex-
perts. Perhaps only a few short months
from now Clark Clifford can sit at his
Pentagon desk and watch the Vietnam
battle scene live.
The suggestion made by Page Com-

No Comment
I " ASHINGTON (M--The Army was re-
ported yesterday to be trying to collect
$70.21 from a veteran of the Vietnam
war because he lost his M14 rifle in com-
bat1
The source of this report, Rep. Henry
C. Schadeberg (R-Wis.) said if the Army
succeeds, the Navy should collect $30
million from Secretary of Defense Robert
S. McNamara for the loss of the USS
Pueblo and the USS Liberty. The former
was seized by North Korea and the la'ter'
was a casualty of an Israeli attack.
The congressman said the $70.21 claim
,as made against one of his constituents,
Ernest J. Wagner, Racine, Wis., who was
honorably discharged from the Army
after year's service in Vietnam, with the
25th Infantry Combat Regiment.
"He offered his life in defense of his
country and now he gets a bill for it,"
Schadeberg said.

transceiver that can send and receive
voice, data, radar and video signals.
Hooked up with a communications satel-
lites and other electroine marvels such
a, system can establish 'a direct battle-
field-to-Pentagon video hook-up.
The implications of such gadgetry go
far beyond the obvious idea that the
Pentagon, collectivists will deprive battle-
field commanders of their masculinity,
individuality and decision making pow-
ers.
Rather such direct action rigging just
might provide defense department com-
pater programmers and other modern
warfare tacticians with the one element
that has been lacking from their kill-
ratio mentality.
And that is that real people - civil-
ians, American boys, and the heinous
enemy in black pajamas - are dying
flesh and blood deaths in Vietnam.
Who knows? A revelation like this
might just shorten America's Holy War
in Southeast Asia.
Unfortunately, it is more likely that
these live video pictures will provide
the White House with its greatest enter-
tainment feature since the hey-day of
lan Fleming.

judgements might have. O.K., let's
change the rules if they need
changing-but don't damn the

ponent parts.
Before the storm clouds clear,
any effects that this investigation
might have on the conference rules
will be but a drop in this icy sea
of scandal. And you'll never win a

'Do-Gooders'
To the Editor:
WELL, I SEE The Daily is 'still
staffed, in the main, by selfish,
self-promoting "newsmen."
Your article on University ath-
letes, discounts, etc., shows you
will smear even your own great
Univcersity if it will help you - get
your article spread across the
country.
The University has long been
acknowledged as unusual in th.t
we have been able to combine
top scholarship with top athletics.
One of the reasons for this has

been H. D. Crisler who for more
years than you have lived has
dedicated himself to ethical sports.
Self-styled do-gooders like you
do not make a fraction of the con-
tribution to their University or
society as these coaches and ath-
letes you have embarrassed.
The next time you enter the
movie, a play, or an athletic event
on your free pass, think about it.
-Arthur W. Atwell,
'56 Bus. Ad.
Commendation
To the Editor:
COMMEND The Daily on its
recent stand on the special,
treatment of athletes at this and
other Big Ten Universities.
First, I should state that I am
a strong supporter and fan of
Michigan athletics, and that
having participated in varsity
athletics as an undergraduate, I
know and appreciate the oppor-
tunities which this special treat-
ment affords.
Nonetheless, I still have to ask

myself why a student with excep-
tional talents in athletics should
be given more privileges, and more
material advantages, in the form
of non-need athletic scholarships,
free passes, merchandise, and
other benefits, than one who ex-
cels in artistic, academic, or other
fields, or even no field at all.
Totally independent of any Big
Ten rule, this treatment seems to
me unjust to those who might
work as hard on a particular non-
athletic endeavor an an athlete
on an athletic one.

ar Editor's Note: This is the second
r of a three-part series by David
Housez, a reporter for LE MONDE
DIPLOMATIQUE who has recently
returned from both North and
South Korea. It is translated from
the French by Ellie Dorsey and
Raymond Mungo of Liberation
News Service.
IF IN SEOUL they "strive" to
work within the unreasonable
limits imposed by Johnson and
Thieu, they also welcome the
chance to intensify their military
preparedness. General Park, Presi-
dent of South Korea, was explicit
on this subject when he offered
for 1968 a total of 40,000 new
combatants from the First reserve
and 30,000 civilian workers. After
some slave-trade discussion, the
U.S. accepted, at the rate deter-
mined by Seoul, 17,000 of its 'Free
World' soldiers and 13,000 non-
combatant workers, which will
bring the total of Koreans pres-
ence in proportion to population.
"1100 Koreans killed by 12 mil-
lion VC in two years of Vietnam
'pacification.' "
On that score General Park is
repaying his debt to the 'Free
World,' "which liberated us from
Japanese occupation in 1945 and
reversed the Communist invasion
of 1953." He doesn't hide the fact

forts to increase the volume of
military contracts with armies of
the Free World."
On occasion, the South Korean
government extorts promises of
financial and military aid from
the U.S. to make their commit-
ment to the Vietnam conflict pay
off. The most recent contracts
have been for military clothing for
South Vietnamese and a "rest and
detention" center for GIs in
Korea.
GENERAL BONE STEEL, who
commands the UN forces in Viet-
nam, complained officially to
Seoul in October about the enorm-
ous flow of contraband from Viet-
nam, to Korea; Seoul's official i e-
ply was that "It's only good ol-
diers who are benefiting from this
expedition anyway." In the' gov-
ernment's eye, apparently, Korean
soldiers are inevitably "good" ones.
The Korean Treasury in Seoul is
getting richer too, but not only
with money. Various currency,
statues, and sacred and antique
items pillaged by the Japanese in
1945 have been replaced with "cul-
tural treasures" from the Amer-
icans-made of good leather and
brnoze. One such treasure was
given away to LBJ, with the fol-
lowing explanation by the artist:

United Nations to abolish that Ar-
tificial boundary line have met
with complete failure. In a sense,
in June of 1950, the North Koreans
attempted to reunify the country
by warring on the Southern re-
gime-which gave the countries of
the "Free World" an opportunity
to initiate their first anti-Com-
munist offensive. It was not a total
success, and the Koreans agreed to
an armistice on July 27, 1953,
which separated both halves,
again at the 38th parallel. Despite
over two million deaths, there has
never been a real end to this war.
One side or other continually an-
nounced the necessity to revitalize
its forces, to gain vengeance for
death of the previous war, and
then proposed a process of reuni-
fication unacceptable to the other.
Today Panmunjhom, on the
DMZ, has recaptured a 1953 air
of tenseness. A UN soldier, an
American told me: "The tension's
so great that the slightest noise at
night alerts all forces."
THE IMMINENT reunion be-
tween troops of the South and
their North Korean and Chinese
adversary have eliminated the
tourist presence. Americans don't
go out for walks - to photograph
peaceful Southern villages vith

circles all day long, took their
roots and buried them in their
respective fields." The impasse
over reunification seems perfectly
acceptable to the U.S., which is
eager to keep its little fortress
against China-not to mention a
warring base against the entire
Pacific. The UN remains powerless.
And in the absence of any govern -
ing force except U.S. military

might, the South Koreans have
managed to build an agricultural
countryside, to change their own
population, and to establish a
powerful, modern army But all
this hasn't happened without seri-
ous opposition-form within arid
outside-to General Park's ruth-
less regime.

Park's government
