Investigation Attempts To Explain
Irreguyilarities at Albert Terrace
City Council launched last night an investigation of build-
ing code violations and alleged government negligence in the
construction, occupancy and supervision of the student apart-
ment complex, Albert Terrace.
Discussion focused on a special city attorney's report
which attempts to explain the Department of Building and
! Safety's and city attorney's roles in the Albert Terrace case.
The report, compiled by. City Attorney Peter Forsythe,
claims building violations by developer John Stegeman did
not warrant legal action since "At no time did Stegeman
or his representatives refuse to do what was demanded of
them by the City."
In one section, the Forsythe report acknowledges Stege-

More Hearings
With great reluctance, Rusk
finally agreed to appear again
this morning.
Fulbright, calling a halt to the
first day's testimony after more
than six hours of dialogue be-
tween Rusk and the committee
members, told the secretary: "It
will be impossible to proceed with
foreign aid" - the ostensible pur-
pose of the hearing - "unless we

"This country will bounce backj
quite fast," Rusk replied, "if youf
get a little peace out there."
Referring to reports of corrup-
tion and maladministration by
the South Vietnamese govern-'
ment, Case asked Rusk:
Too Involved?
"Is it not true that the admin-
istration cannot saydto Southt
Vietnam, If you don't correct
what you're doing, we'll pull out.?
Are you too deeply involved to
say that?"
"It would not be wise to say
that, Senator,' Rusk said. "We
ought to be working with them,
instead, to help them . . . There's
corruption, but there's a lot o:
gallantry, too."

Vietnam Issue
At issue in bothsinstances is
Johnson's conduct of the Viet-
nam war.
Nixon says that if elected he
would end the conflict but has
refused to spell out how he would
accomplish that result.
McCarthy has said the way to
stop the war is to accept a coalit-
ion government in Saigon, "be
willing to tell the American people
the truth about the war, however
bad," and "be willing to make a
fresh start."
In turn, McCarthy has been ac-
cused by Johnson's supporters in

of being guilty of "fuzzy think-
