HEW FUNDS:
House accepts
compromise bi
WASHINGTON (A) - The House, obviously tired of its
long fight with President Nixon over education spending,
voted yesterday to accept a compromise $19.4 billion appro-
priations bill passed by the Senate.
The bill contains provisions permitting cuts to about
4 $19 billion.
The White House, equally willing to end the battle, let
it be known Nixon will sign the bill in that form although the
total still is about $680 million over his budget.
Nixon vetoed an earlier one that was $1.2 billion over
the budget.
After months of delay, Congress moved swiftly to end
the struggle. The House voted, 228 to 152, to instruct its
conferees to accept the Sen-

deployed on the campus of the
University of Illinois last night
to break up a crowd of some
5,000 milling students and en-
force a 10:30 p.m. curfew.
State police announced over a
bullhorn shortly after 10 p.m.
that the mayors of the adjoining
cities of Champaign and Urbana
had set a 10:30 p.m. curfew.
About 200 guardsmen formed a
line at the Illini Union Bldg. and
began moving the students west
along Green Street.
The guardsmen were armed with
unloaded rifles and tear gas but
there was no violence.
Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie ordered
750 guardsmen to duty yesterday
at the university, where trustees
banned a speech by Chicago 7
lawyer William M. Kunstler.
A spokesman for the Concerned
Lawyers and Law Students, spon-
sors of the speech, said that Kun-
stler's appearance has been post-
poned until next week.
Steven Danz, the spokesman,
said the group decided to call off
the controversial lawyer's appear-
ance because of the tension caused
by the trustees' action in ruling
Kunstler could not speak on cam-
pus.
Danz said he talked by tele-
phone with Kunstler yesterday
and the lawyer said he would not
appear at an off-campus site.
Danz also said the group would
go ahead with plans to ask U.S.
District Court for a temporary re-
straining order against the trus-
tees' action.
Gov. Ogilvie said the. University
of Illinois requested the guard be
placed on standby.
Some 700 to 1000 students last
night marched on the home of the
university president in the second
straight day of demonstrations
protesting General Electric's re-
cruitment on campus and the re-
fusal of the university board of
trustees to allow Kunstler to speak
on campus.
With 750 National Guardsmen
standing by at a Champaign Arm-
ory the protestors last night stag-
ed a rally at the Union, then
marched about a mile to the home
of the president.
At the house some 50 state
troopers prevented the demonstra-
tors from entering the grounds.
But chants of "We want Kunst-
ler", "Off GE and off the pigs"
rang out.
There was some damage to store
windows last night but no esti-
mate was available.
Four hundred police from Cham-
paign, Urbana and the university's
security force were called Monday
night after 500 students smashed
windows in the campus area. There
were 21 arrests reported.

WITHDRAW PETITION:

TF

unit faces setback

By W. E. SCHROCK
More than 750 people filled the Union ballroom yester-
day to hear a public forum of representatives from te Dow
Chemical Corp. and members of Radical College.
The forum on "The role of the chemical company in
social and political problems of the day," was arraiged by
Radical College, a group of professors, staff members, and
students.
It was organized by Radical College member Robert van
der Meulen with the cooperation of Acting Vice President
for Student Affairs Barbara Newell under a procedure set up
by the Regents in April, 1968.
Literary College Dean William - - -
Hayes, moderator of the forum,
opened the proceedings by saying
"We hope that this will lead to
some open, candid discussion."
The forum was divided into
three, parts: showing of a film,
"Accusation", short presentations
by each of the panel members,
and a question and answer period.
The first speaker was zoology
Prof. Robert Beyer, of Radical
College. He explained that Radi-
cal College had organized "to
present a view quite different from ; yN
that which is usually represented \
by faculty."
Beyer's presentation was a de-
scription of Dow products th a t
have been used as weapons in
Vietnam - specifically napalm
and herbicides used for defoliant
purposes.
On herbicides, Beyer said that
crop destruction affects people
and can result in growth deform-
ing, malnutritive effects on chil-
dren, "not the enemy. This is a
completely misconceived percep-
tion." Ih
Turning to napalm, Beyer said Ian Wright
that "no use has ever been found
for napalm in peacetime." He said
that although Dow has stopped
making napalm, it did so only

in attempt to unionize

By TAMMY JACOBS
Teaching fellows trying to form
a union received a set-back yes-
terday, when it was discovered
that they did not have the required
amount of signatures on a petition
filed with the state Employment
Relations Commission.
According to the law, a petition
with the signatures of 30 per cent
of the constituency a proposed
union wants to represent must be
filed before the commission will
hold a hearing to" consider rec-
ognizing the union.
When the teaching fellows'r
group started collecting signatures,
they were told by the administra-
tion that there were 1,417 teaching
fellows at the University. They
collected signatures accordingly,
and filed the petition with 450
signatures or almost 33 per cent
of the teaching fellows' names,

according to Steering Committee
Chairman Alison Hayford, a geo-
graphy teaching fellow.
However, at a preliminary con-
ference in Detroit yesterday, the
commission tallied the petition
signatures against a computer tape
of the teaching fellows on the
January payroll, and found that
the numbe' of names on the peti-
tion was insufficient. The Jan-
uary payroll listed 1,554 teaching
fellows in the University.
The group withdrew their peti-
tion and will refile it when enough
signatures have been collected.
Jack Hamilton, the director
of University r e 1 a t i o n s, later
said that "the reason for the dis-
parity in the numbers is that new
teaching f e 11 o w appointments
hadn't been cleared as soon as we
would have liked them to."
He said that the 1,417 figure

ate version.
The conferees met less than an
hour later, went through the for-
mality of agreeing to the Senate
bill, and brought the agreement
back. The House voted approval,
324 to 55.
The Senate must still take fina)
action.
Both the Democratic and Re-
publican leaders in the House sup-
ported the motion to instruct the
conferees despite misgivings aboul
the Senate bill.
The key to Republican suppori
was the inclusion of a provision
permitting Nixon to withhold 2 pei
cent of the funds in the bill for a
variety of education programs.
This, in effect, amounts to a cut
of nearly $400 million from the
bill passed earlier by the House.
President Nixon had told Con-
gress Jan. 27, he vetoed the $19.7
billion HEW appropriation bill be-
cause it would feed inflation,
foster inefficiency and misdirect
money.

fellows first requested it. However
the law requires that the 30 pe

the day the petition is filed.'
According to Miss Hayford, th
teaching fellows' group is plan
ning to refile the petition as soon
as possible. The formal hearing
with the commission - the nex
step after the petition is filed-
has been set for April 22.
"We're planning to get the ad

there were other problems beside

Hamilton noted the "temporar

and said that there was a ques

unit of student employes."
If the commisison rules tha
teaching fellows are "an appropri

Hamilton said.
If, at the formal hearing nex

that thetteaching fellows con

WOMEN'S HOURS

Fooling your parents and

U',

By PETER MILLER
One rather intoxicated freshman girl
prepared to leave a party on Thompson
Street at 2:30 last Sunday morning, bound
for Bursley. When asked, "Don't you have
hours?" she laughed.
The girl is one of the few women living
in University housing who still have hours
restrictions. Or at -least they do in theory.

Bursley residents who violate hours re-
strictions face no problem at all. Signing
out is voluntary, and no one checks to see
if women are in the dorm at the proper
time, unless it is requested. Very 'few wo-
men make the request.
"The girls respect their parents' wishes,"
says Dorothy Saboley, resident director of
Rotvig House, Bursley.
But one Rotvig resident disagrees. "You
can come in at 4:00 Monday morning" and

pected to sign out, and they may obtain
late minutes for violating the rules. Enough
late minutes, and a girl is confined to her
room, with no visitors for as many hours
on a weekend night.
The doors at Stockwell are locked at
midnight on weekdays, and a "night lady"
takes the names of those who enter after
that.
But residents have found ways to cir-
cumvent the rules. Some girls simply
