WESTERN ALLIES agreed yesterday to open four-power
talks with the Soviet Union on Berlin.
The Kremlin had requested ambassadorial talks with the United
States, France and Britain in notes to those countries on February
10, for the purpose of discussing "only West Berlin."
The Allied acceptance notes rejected this limitation in hopes of
discussing such issues such as freer communication's and an easier
flow of goods, traffic and ideas between East and West Berlin.
Their notes further proposed that the meeting be held in an allied
council building in West Berlin.
Washington officials said the western powers do not plan to
ask for removal of the Berlin wall at this stage, but the subject
might come up if there are signs of progress.
No date for the talks has been set.
LEON PANETTA, the out going chief of federal school de-
segregation programs, accused President Nixon yesterday of mak-
ing a mockery of his victory pledge to "bring us together."
Addressing the Women's National Press Club, the resigning chief
of the civil rights division at the Department of Health, Education
and Welfare, said Nixon is so concerned with the politics of appeas-
ing the South that he has abdicated his role as moral leader.
Nixon's attitudes on' freedom of choice and busing is "taking the
easy way out," Panetta claims.
Panetta further accused the administration of a retreat in hiring
policies of federal agencies, away from one requiring affirmative ac-
tion in finding jobs for minorities toward one "that requires the
agencies to say there is no discrimination and that's it."

The students and administration of Ann Arbor Pioneer
High School have reached a settlement regarding changes
in school policy after a week of class boycotting by both
black and white students.
The agreement came out of a four hour meeting of black
students with school principal Theodore Rokicki on Thurs-
day. The points of agreement, to which Rokicki said he was
"personally committed" include:
-"Revision of our guidance andi-

with newsmen yester-
ar Accelerator spectro-
w, head of the Accele-
C operations to Pompi-
Lt French participation

counseling organization to include
one black counselor for each grade.
Also needed is a scholarship or
college counselor who is black."
-"As a minimum goal, finding
two black teachers for every de-
partment as expansion dictates
and vacancies occur."
-"Expansion of coaching staffs.
New coaches should be black."
-"Expansion of black history to
a two semester course available
to at least 11th and 12th grades."
-"Music after game dances on
on a 1/3 black, 1/3 white, 1/3
other basis."
-"Commitment to 'integration'
of classes."
-'Review by each department
to insure that the role of the black
American is part of each course
of study."
The week-long series of events
leading to the agreement started
Monday, when several black stu-
dents were suspended fromschool
for smoking. Many blacks felt the
students had been suspended on
suspicion only. The administration
contended that a teacher had seen
the students smoking and had re-
ported it to the class principal,
Robert L. Sloan, who then sus-
pended the students.
On Tuesday 120 blacks boycott-
ed classes all day, talking to other
students and formulating the de-
mands to which Rokicki later,
On Wednesday, four more black
students were suspended by Ro-
kicki when they refused'to go to
class. The students had been
standing in a corridor with some
60 other blacks who went to class
at the request of black student
Later in the morning, 1200 stu-
dents, both black and white, left
classes and met in the school's
auditorium. The black students
reiterated their demands, and
were supported by the white stu-
dents. Jointly they asked for sus-
pension of smoking regulations
and an "open campus" (freedom
to leave school grounds during
lunch hours).
Although all suspended students
were readmitted to school by yes-
terday, students, in an additional
demand, called for the firing of
Sloan. Rokicki said this demand
would have to be submitted
through the school's regular griev-
ance procedure.

WASHINGTON (R) - President
Nixon yesterday unveiled a novel
plan to Congress to avert crip-
pling strikes in rail, airlines and
other transport industries.
Calling the' present transporta-
tion acts ineffective and "actual-
ly discouraging to genuine bar-
gaining," Nixon outlined his pro-
posal to make rail and airline dis-
putes subject to the Taft-Hartley
law with additional provisions to
include labor relations in mari-
time, longshore and trucking in-
dustries as well.
If Congress accepts Nixon's sug-
gestions, the President would; be
empowered to appoint a board of
inquiry to investigate an impend-
ing strike or lock-out which he
feels m a y imperil the national
health and safety.
After receiving a board report
on the issues involved, the Presi-
dent could-then call for an 80-day
cooling off period.
Nixon further suggested t h a t
the Taft-Hartley act be amended
in order to give the President ad-
ditional procedures to follow at
the end of the cool-off period.
Among these are the power to
extend the cool-off period up to
an additional 30 days or to permit
part of an industry to strike while
the "essential segments of the In-
dustry" be kept in operation for
as long as six months.
A third option would allow the
President to invoke a procedure of
"final offer selection." Under this
plan, parties to the dispute would
have three days to submit one or
two final offers to the secretary
of labor. Following a five-day ne-
gotiation period, the disputing
sides would be asked to agree on
three neutrals to study the final
offers and select one without
amendment, as the final and
binding settlement.
Organized labor in general, was
said to believe Nixon's plan in-
volves too much compulsion.

No reason was given regarding the delay in disclosure of the
HUBERT H. HUMPHREV said yesterday he expects to name
his choice for the Democratic national chairman after tomorrow's
meeting of the party's executive committee.
Humphrey, the party's 1968 presidential nominee, conferred at
breakfast yesterday with 12 Democratic governors and then went to
Capitol Hill to meet with Democratic congressmen and senators.
Humphrey said he is seeking someone who will be able to unite
the party and "stay on the job between now and 1972."

THE SUPREME COURT agreed yesterday to decide whether
servicemen accused of crimes on base have the constitutional
right to be tried in civilian court.
The appeal contends a serviceman accused of a crime in peace-
time that is "without military significance" should have the same
right as other citizens to trial by jury.
Currently, the military decides which of these cases should be
heard by court-martial and which by juries in civilian courts.
Last June, in a- 5-3 decision, the court held for the first time
that only "service-connected" crimes are, under the jurisdiction of
military courts.
The court's review probably will lead to a definition of what is a
"service-connected" crime. The justices are also being asked to give
the June ruling retroactive application, which could reopen scores
of military convictions.

ABM costs spiral


as (esting
and improvements on the Safe-
guard antiballistic missile system
are addinghundreds of millions of
dollars to the cost of the U.S.
defense program, according to an
official Pentagon report.
The report states that design
changes have added $650 million
to the price of ABM in a single
year. Critics of the Safeguard sys-
tem insist that such figures are
low and that in fact the cost of the
defense shield will grow by the
Estimates provided to Congress
this week indicate that if the

1970's - an increase of $1.6 bil-
lion from 1969 figures.

All Campus Theatrical Company

University experimenting with
'convenience' foods at Couzens

"Couzens has the best food of
all the dormitories I've eaten
in," claims a senior resident
Could it be the convenience
Couzens is the only dorm on
campus that serves convenience
foods. It is the center of an ex-
periment to see if such food can
be eventually served in all Uni-
versity residence halls.-
Convenience foods, which re-
semble TV dinners, come frozen
and simply need to be put into
the oven. Occasionally the cooks
will add a little seasoning be-
fore heating the food.
Fifty percent of the meat and
all the desserts at Couzens come
pre-prepared. Couzens' t h r e e
chefs still cook the non-con-
venience foods s u c h as roast
beef and pork chops,

Certain parts of the meal, like
salads, are prepared by kitchen
staff the same as* in other
dorms. Most of the convenience
food is brand names such as
Stouffer's or Sara Lee. Usually
one convenience item is served
with one non-convenience one.
For example, one meat dish will
be pre-prepared, and the other
will not.
Edward Salowitz, associate di-
rect'or of University Housing
says that Couzens was chosen
as the dorm where the experi-
ment was to be run because it
had flexibility of equipment and
had storage and o v e n space.
"The object of the program,"
says Mrs. Frye, a dietician at
Couzens, "is to find a satisfac-
tory, economical, and fast way
to feed a mass number of peo-

If the experiment with con-
venience food is successful,
there will be great savings in
labor costs, she says. At Couz-
ens this year, the experiment
has saved $3,000 on food and
labor costs, says Salowitz.
According to Salowitz, one
major disadvantage to the pro-
gram is that it limits diversity
and embellishments. S o u t h
Quad, Salowitz.esays, is known
for its soups because the cook
can prepare them in his own
special way whereas at Couzens
all the soups are Campbell's and
cannot be altered to any great
It has not been decided, Sal-
owitz says, whether the pro-
gram will be continued n e x t
year at Couzens of whether it
will be instituted next year in
other residence halls.

Nuclear warheads for the mis-
sile interceptors - budgeted sep-
arately under the Atomic Energy
Commission - would cost an ad-
ditional $1.2 billion, for a total
of about $12 billion.
The Pentagon says $395 million
of the increase has resulted from
inflation and $575 million is due
to a six-month delay last year in
the deployment work of the first
two authorized. ABM sites.
I Several factors contributed to
the remaining $650 million bulge,
defense officials say.
One factor, an ABM planner said
in an interview, the Missile Site
Radar, which will guide Safe-
guard anti-missile in intercepting
enemy nuclear warheads, needs to
be made more nearly impervious
to atomic blasts. This may c o s t
upwards of $50 million.
Additional millions will be re-
quired by the Army to testfire the
short-range Sprint interceptors
from their operational sites, pro-
bably in 1975, he said.
The Army has been testing the
ISprint antimissile at the White
Sands, N.M., range for several
months. But no provision has been
made for test launches from the
Sprint sites around Air Force
Minuteman ICBM complexes -
which Safeguard will be defend-
ing-in Montana, North Dakota
and Missouri.
Whether the Sprints would be
fired toward an actual target-
a dummy warhead, for example-
or whether they would merely be
shot toward a pre-selected point,
in space has not been decided, thej
official added.
The Pentagon has also decided
to develop a new version of
Sprint's big brother, the Spartan
antimissile, which is supposed to
make intercepts several hundred
miles out in space.
The Improved Spartan, as it is
now designated, would be design-
ed specifically to intercept sub-
marine-launched ballistic missiles
and depressed-trajectory ICBM.

Well-known ship designer
Professor Adams dies at 78

Henry Carter (Adams, II, pro-
fessor emeritus of naval architec-
ture and marine engineering at
the University died Thursday at
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital.
Funeral services will be held at
11 a.m., today at the St. Andrews
Episcopal Church, with the Rev.
Gordon M. Jones officiating. Bur-
ial will be at Forest Hill cemetery.
Retired from the active faculty
seven years ago, Prof. Adams was
an expert in stability and struc-
tural strength. He advised public
and private agencies in admiralty
cases and rendered expert opin-
ions on such topics as the feasible
length of Great Lakes ships.
A native of Ann Arbor and son
of, t h e pioneer economist after
whom a distinguished professor-
ship was created at the University,
Prof. Adams received his bache-
lor's and master's degrees from

the University. He also, did grad-
uate work at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
He first joined the faculty in
1928 as an assistant professor,
holding that appointment until
1943 when he received the rank of
associate professor. He became a
full professor in 1953.
On the occasion of his retire-
ment, the Regents noted, "Prof.
Adams maintained a close rap-
port with students, to whom his
door was always open; he main-
tained high standards of per-
formance by mutual understand-
ing rather than by fiat. In the ex-
tremely busy years after the Sec-
ond World War, many duties of
counseling, credit adjustment, and
curriculum arrangement devolved
upon him, and he continued to
supply these services until t h e
time of his retirement."
