KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (P -
President-elect Richard M. Nixon
ruled out yesterday a mission to
South Vietnam-unless President
Johnson "suggests it would be
helpful in furthering the negotia-
tions toward peace."
Nixon's chief spokesman re-
layed that response to an invita-
tion from South Vietnamese Pres-
ident Nguyen Van Thieu. Aide
Ronald, Ziegler said Nixon now
has no plans for any foreign travel
before his inauguration next Jan.
20.,
Nixon received and read a cable
from Thieu inviting him to Viet-
nam "to make an on the spot as-
sessment of the war and the situ-
4 ation."

Ziegler delivered this response: therefore will do nothing to un-
"Mr. Nixon plans no foreign dercut or derrogate the current
trip, and will make no such trip leadership of the country."

it would be helpful in furthering1
the negotiations toward peace. As
President-elect Nixon said on;
'Meet the Press', he would be
willing to cooperate with Presi-.
dent Johnson in any way that he3
would deem helpful."
In that interview, last Sunday,
Nixon said he would go to Saigon
or to Paris if Johnson asked him
to do so in the interests of en-
hancing peace prospects,
"As Mr. Nixon has said on nu-I
merous occasions," Ziegler said,
"He feels that the country has

WASHINGTON (R--Two aides of President-elect Richard
M. Nixon went to the White douse yesterday to start paving
the way for Nixon's takeover on Jan. 20.
Franklin P. Lincoln Jr., a member of Nixon's New York
law firm and an assistant secretary of defense in the Eisen-,
hower administration said, "It's like coming home again"
when he arrived for talks with Charles S. Murphy, President
Johnson's special counsel.
During the presidential campaign, Johnson invited all:
three of the major candidates to name representatives to
start discussing an orderly transition of power. All three!
A accepted.
Yesterday's meeting was the first since Nixon won the'
election. Lincoln, who was accompanied by William Harmon,,
Sanother law firm associate of
Nixon's, said the discussions
elley seesiinvolved procedures, but he
' declined to go into details.

"President-elect Nixon will have
no comment on the international
field unless it has been discussed
with the President and the secre-
tary of state and unless it is in the
interest of foreign policy as they
see it," Ziegler said.
"Mr. Nixon has had no per-
sonal conversation with the Pres-
ident or secretary of state since
his election victory and he has
no plans to initiate such a con-
versation at this time."
NO PLANS
Ziegler said Nixon had earlier
received several invitations to
visit Western Europe but "he has
no plans to make any foreign trip
between now and the inaugura-
tion."
The White House declined to
say whether Thieu had discussed
the invitation previously with
Washington. The State Depart-
ment had no comment.
In a message congratulating
Nixon on his victory, Thieu said:
"The Vietnamese government, the
Vietnamese people and our sol-
diers fighting in the front lines
against Communist aggression will
be most happy to receive on Viet-
namese soil a staunch defender
of freedom, which you have been ,
for many long years."
WELCOME_
Thieu said Nixon would be most
welcome "if you wish to make an
on-the-spot assessment of the
war and 'the situation ahead."
Thieu presumably meant before
Nixon takes office in Jan. 20.

FIVE O)FFIC(E's AFFECTED:
SRC recomends sty
for OSA advisory cc

By NADINE COHODAS
Student Government Council last night accepted the
;report of its membership committee which forces sororities
who have either required and/or binding recommendations
to "render ineffective locally" these mechanisms "before the
next rush commences."
The committee's report amended Panhel's proposal of
Oct. 16 which requires the ommission of mechanisms "which
are discriminatory on the basis of race, religion, color, creed
or national origin."
"This was changed because in limiting binding recom-
mendations to only those which are discriminatory, the orig-
inal problem of determining what is discriminatory remains
unsolved," explained M i k e -
Kahn, chairman of the SGC
membership committee. "TheT o "
solution therefore is to renderI1'
invalid or eliminate all bind-
ing recommendations," Kahn
added. Ut1~u
The committee report further
states that "the proposed elimi-
nation of these mechanisms" must C zecli r o

'In 1970__. '
LANSING (AP1-Democratic At-
ty. Gen. Frank Kelley outlined a
broad range of political ambitions
yesterday, saying he may run'
either for governor or U.S. sen-
ator.
"I'm not going tq play coy,"
Kelley said at a news conference.
"I may run for governor in
1970," Kelley said. "Or I may run
for senator in 1972. Then I may
run again for attorney general.
"But I may end up as a profes-
sor at some small college," he
added.
Kelley was asked if he would
rather run against Gov. George
Romney or Lt. Gov. William Mil-
liken, the heir apparent to Rom-
ney.
"I don't think Romney will be
here very long," Kelley replied. "I
think he'll probably be in Wash-!
ington after the first of the year."
Discussions between President-
elect Richard Nixon and Romney
during the presidential campaign
have led to persistent speculation
that the governor will receive 'a
cabinet post-probably secretary

advocates allowing 18-year olds to
vote. The method of electing dele-
gates to state and national party
conventions should be liberalized,
he said.
"We need to recruit more youth-
ful candidates, both black and
white," Kelley said. "There are
very few people in the state in
their early 30's holding office. We
should have some office-holders
in their early 20's."

candidates for top government
posts and starting them through
security clearance processes, plus
getting down to business on bud-

that will face the new administra-
tion. '
Nixon spent the day conferring
with advisers.
He planned to remain through
Sunday in Key Biscayne, his va-
cation retreat eight years ago in
presidential defeat, before re-
turning to his New York head-
quarters to begin the task of
assembling a new administration.
Nixon aides said the President-
elect will not name anyone to his
cabinet before Dec. 1. "Mr. Nixon
feels that, with the current unrest
in the country, he wants to fully
assess the situation and that he
wants to select the best people'
available."

Ziegler said Nixon has no plans
at this point for meeting with
President Johnson, nor with Vice
President Hubert H. Humphrey,
the man he narrowly defeated.
Thieu has refused to join four-
way talks as proposed by the
United States, contending the ar-
rangement would give status
equal to the Saigon Government's

eration Front.
While South Vietnamese lead-
ers have been officially neutral!
on the U.S. election, many were
known to be ardent supporters of
Nixon against Hubert H. Hum-
phrey, particularly since the split
over the Paris talks.

The Student Relations Commit-
tee yesterday made recommenda-
tions on the composition of oper-
ating committees for two offices
in the Office of Student Affairs,
but delayed recommendations for
three other offices.
The committee is using as a
basis for its recommendations re-
ports from heads of the Univer-
sity Housing Office, the Office of
Student Financial Aids, The In-'
ternational Center, The Bureau of
Appointments and the Counseling'
Office.
The SRC recommended the op-
erating committee for the Office
of Student Financial Aids include
four students and four faculty
members, and that such a com-
mittee should include "represen-
tatives of aid recipients." Special
mention wasdmade of black stu-
dents, graduate students and
students from "a poverty back-
ground."
Ron Brown, new director of fi-
nancial aids, who will assume his
post in January, had recommend-
ed the committee be composed of
three faculty members and three
students. However, SRC members
felt a six-member committee
would not be sufficient to repre-
sent all recipient groups.
The SRC accepted the sug-
gestions made in a report from
University Housing Director John
Feldkamp to ; continue utilizing
present advisory committees in
that office, including the Gov-
ernors of the Residence Halls and
the Student Advisory Committee
on Housing.
The Board of Governors is com-
posed of four faculty members and
four students and is primarily re-
sponsible for academic concerns1

The SRC agreed the Board of

U' FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES
Nederlander: 'Students aren 't ch ldren'

By PHILIP BLOCK
First of a two-part series
Coming off a convincing win
at the polls, newly elected Re-
gent Robert Nederlander will
take office next January at
the most crucial point in t h i s

On Tuesday, Nederlander, a

says.
Nederlander does not feel the
financial burdens of higher ed-
ucation should be continually
placed on the students. "I will
do everything I can to keep stu-
dent tuition down," he says.
"Obviously this means the need-
ed funds must come from other
sources, but I don't know the
specifics as to exactly how the
money can be raised," Neder-

treated as if they were," he says.
"40 per cent of the student
body averages 26 years of age
and the remaining 60 per cent
averages 20 years of age. The
University can't be a substitute
parent - students must be giv-
en the opportunity to be heard
and what they say should be
highly considered."
However, Nederlander is also
unspecific as to exactly what the
role of students should be. He

in a growing university is a
lack of opportunity for a stu-
dent to know his professors," he
says. "When I attended the
University's Law School, which,
like the Residential College al-
lowed students and professors to
have close contact, I took a
greater interest in what I was
studying. I feel projects like the
Residential College should be
encouraged."
