About 30 University students
joined striking Fruehauf Cor-
poration workers on the picket
line yesterday.
Most of the students w e r e
members of women'sliberation
groups a n d International So-
cialists. They Joined striking
clerical workers who are seek-
ing union recognition from the
Detroit-based truck manufact-
uring firm.
The workers, eighty per cent
of whom are women, went on
strike November 19 to gain rec-
ognition for their United Auto
Workers union local. Approxi-
mately three hundred office
workers are eligible for union
membership and nearly two
hundred are currently on strike.
Fruehauf production workers
have not been affected by the
walkout.
Union leaders have charged
the company with employing

strikebreakers and using polic
to cripple their strike efforts
In an incident Thursday, UAX
officials charged that policea
the picket line ignored an as
sault on a picket by a strike
breaker.
A Women's Liberation spokes
man claims the workers ar
being unfairly treated becaue
most of them are women.
The Freuhauf employes hav
received support from the UA
international organization i
the form of pickets from othe
UAW locals. The University stu
dents hoped to bolster the strike
effort and draw attention to th
situation.
In a letter to Detroit Mayo
Roman Gribbs, UAW regiona
director Ken Morris said tha
two police refused to arrest th
picket's assailant. He demand
ed that Gribbs take actio
against the police, calling the
" a disgrace to the communit
and its people."

THE OIL AND AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRIES have announced
a joint plan for reducing automotive air pollution. ,
The plan is for the oil industry to develop a lead-free gasoline,
and the automobile makers to produce an engine to use the lead-free
fuel.
Lead is not a major source of pollution in'automobile exhausts, but
its presence prevents removal of other pollutants.
Standard Oil Co. of Indiana pointed out its premium AMOCO
brand which is sold in 25 states is lead-free, yet meets the 100 octane
ratingof leaded premiums.
- Other oil companies said they could market a lead-free fuel by
next year.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CHAIRMAN Sen. Fred Harris, of
Oklahoma announced his resignation of the office effective
March 5.
Harris said he is resigning because "I want to be free to speak
out on issues without someone wondering if I'm just speaking because
I'm a national chairman."
No successor for Harris has been picked.
There was some speculation that Harris plans to make a bid for
the 1972 presidential nomination, but he discounted that idea saying,
"I haven't any plans to run for president."

THE TRIAL of nine persons charged with damaging Dow
Chemical offices in Washington last March erupted into a push-
ing-shoving demonstration.
The disruption came as one of the defendants was making a per-
sonal opening statement.
A spectator yelled "Unfair" at the judge, and as a marshal pre-
pared to remove him from the courtroom other spectators began
shouting and pushing the marshals and uniformed police in the
courtroom. The trial was adjourned until Monday. There were no
injuries or immediate arrests.
ALLIED FORCES resumed offensive action in South Vietnam
after a. 24 hour cease-fire.
The U.S. Command reported 89 "enemy initiated" incidents dur-
ing the first 18 hours of the cease-fire, which was in connection with
Tet, the lunar new year holiday.
U.S. spokesmen explained that although in several instances the
allies fired first, it was done when the North Vietnamese presence
was considered threatening.

THE HOUSE BANKING COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN plans to
investigate possible Mafia links with a $1,000,000 Swiss bank ac-
count.
Rep. Wright Patman (D-Tex.) said the case, disclosed Wednesday
by the Associated Press, was "another example of the flagrant and
facile way that secret foreign bank accounts can be used by the or-
ganized underworld."
The case involves an attempt by a Washington lawyer to remove
more than a million dollars from a Swiss bank account held in the
name of a Boston bookmaker. The funds in the bank account alleged-
ly belong to the Boston-Rhode Island Mafia.
Court papers relating to the case had been impounded by the
Massachusetts Superior Court in 1964, however, copies of the docu-
ments were obtained by the Associated Press and released last Wed-
nesday.

LANSING (M - The declara-
tion: " 90 per cent of the fac-
ulty don't give a damn about
the students" summed up the
majority student reaction at
a State House hearing on a
proposal to set up student
grievance committees at all
t h e state's institutions of
higher learning.
The spokesman for the students,
who drew applause for her out-
burst, was Shirley Willard, a
graduate student a n d teaching
assistant at Michigan State Uni-
versity.
The Ipouse Committee on col-
leges and universities conducted
the hearing yesterday in the state
supreme court chambers at Lans-
ing.
The student - teacher favored
the measure, sponsored by Rep,
George F. Montgomery (D-
etroit), to give students more say
in decision-making and handling
of grievances. She said she prev-
iously had taught at the Univer-
sity and Saginaw Valley Junior
College.
"Most student representation of
policy making boards is blatant
tokenism," she said. "Students get
frustrated by banging their heads
against the brick walls of the ad-
ministration.
University and college adminis-
trators were unanimous in their
opposition to the proposal.
Ralph Austermiller, president of
Muskegon Community College,
was among those reflecting their
general support of the status quo.
"We have a democratic process
of cooperation with the students,"
he contended. "Any such thing as
this would be in conflict with the
way we handle grievances in co-
operation with the student gov-
ernment."

WASHINGTON (MP) - The fam-
ilies of more than 12,000 service-
men are on the nation's welfare
rolls and receive monthly welfare
checks, food stamps, surplus food
or other forms of assistance, the
Defense Department reported yes-
terday.
The department said most cases
found in a recently completed
nationwide survey "result from ab-
normal family situations, not uni-
que to military service, but repre-
sentative of society as a whole,
and are unrelated to the levels of
military compensation."
However, Pentagon officials said
the income of an estimated 4,000
military families falls below the
acceptable poverty level set by the
government.
The Defense Department figures

confirm the findings of an As-
sociated Press study in October
which found that public welfare
agencies from New Jersey to Cali-
fornia were supplementing allot-
ment checks from Vietnam, pay-
ing the rent of married draftees or
buying groceries for families whose
breadwinners served overseas.
Under congressional urging, Se-
cretary of Defense Melvin R.
Laird ordered the Pentagon to de-
termine the number of military
welfare cases. Pentagon officials
said, however, the findings are
inconclusive and the total could be
higher.
With the results of the survey
in hand, Pentagon sources said
Roger Kelley, assistant secretary
of defense for manpower, is ex-
pected to announce shortly "a

plan to lift the three lower grades
of enlisted men from the poverty
level."
Another change expected, they
said, is the Defense Department's
attitude toward food stamps. Their
use now is banned in the depart-
ment's 315 commissaries.
Of the 12,589 military welfare
cases found in the Defense De-
partment survey, the Pentagon
said more than 5,000 "appear to in-
volve persons who are not legally
military dependents," such as il-
legitimate children.
More than half of the cases
were found in California where
that state's welfare rolls now car-
ry 7,500 military families. Other
states with high totals w e r e
Georgia, 1,116; New York, 1,653;.
Massachusetts, 200; Illinois, 211,
Kentucky, 207; Oklahoma, 184;
Indiana, 133; and Arizona and
New Jersey each with 130.
The Defense Department said
the 12,589 cases in the survey re-
presented less than eight-tenths of
one per cent of the total number
of personnel in the armed forces.
