Peace Restored
In Tibetan City
r Red China's Troops Stem Revolt;
Rumors of Guerrilla War Persist
NEW DELHI, India (P) - Peace was reported restored yesterday
in Lhasa, the two-mile high capital of Tibet.
Amid indications that Red China's troops had stemmed the
week-end revolt, there was speculation that guerrilla warfare might
.4 persist in the countryside.
Roundabout advices to Tibetans in Kalimpong, an Indian trading,
center on Tibet's frontier, said Lhasa was quiet, though tense.
No Verification
One report, which could not be verified, estimated that 300 Red
troops and from 50 to 60 Tibetans were killed. The battle was set
off Friday by Tibetan fears that the Communist overlords planned

Supporters of Mike Fishman,

recent election, are circulating a

It was also reported by a Fish-

Fishman said last night, "I was
elected. The issue that SGC is
concerned with is over and done
with. What the student body is
concerned with is that their demo-

"This has nothing to do with
the recent decision of SGC in re-
gard to my violation," he added.
Falsified Account
Goldman said that the question
was not one of the amount over
the limit Fishman had gone, but
"the fact that Mr. Fishman know-
ingly falsified his expense account.
"This was the falsification of a

NEW YORK (JP)-A move for1
New York City to secede from
New York State was begun in
the city council yesterday.

duced a secession resolution as-

wanted stepchild" fianacially.

out doing anything," he declared.
"You can be sure of that."
He said the Veteran's Fund is a
practical solution. The fund has
50 million ready dollars and money
is needed quickly, he said. He add-
ed Senate committees are con-
sidering other possible solutions to
the tax crisis, but he refused to re-
veal these.
- To Begin Consideration
Sen. Younger said the Senate
will probably begin consideration
of the House bills tomorrow. He
explained that passage will re-
quire at least five days.
Sen. Lewis G. Christman (R-Ann
Arbor) told a local audience Mon-
day some plan to utilize the Vet-
eran's Trust Fund to bail the state
out of financial trouble would win
Senate approval.
House Speaker Don R. Pears
(R -Buchanan) indicated the
House proposal would have trouble
winning Senate approval.
Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-St.
Clair), Senate majority leader, said
Senate passage will be more diffi-
cult than obtaining the necessary
two-thirds majority in the House.
Sen. Beadle 'said he would "do
everything I can" to see the emer-
gency measure receives Senate ap-

be found "in April, late in April."

He points to the activities of
International Week, planned by
ISA, the Union and the League,
as an example. The Union and
League worked with internation-
al students in presenting the Pete
Seeger concert, the World's Fair,
the soccer match with the Univer-
sity of Toronto and international

Krish did not notice a lack of
American initiative in cooperative
projects, saying "this is the first
year there has been extensive
contact between the. two groups.
If more is done in the future, the
response will probably increase."
Student leadership has been
very enthusiastic in working on
these programs, he said. It is up
to this leadership to continually
devise ways to increase contact
and to maintain this enthusiasm.
Reduce Opinion Differences
Reducing the opinion differ-
ences between nationality groups
within ISA is another goal Krish
saw fulfilled. It is an unwritten
policy to have the executive board
members represent a variety of
different countries, he pointed
Occasionally political differ-
ences show up in heated ISA po-

LANSING ()-While dozens of
veterans looked down from the
galleries, Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams' plan to mortgage the 50
million dollar Veterans Trust Fund
passed the House yesterday by the
skin of its teeth.
Capping a half-hour debate, the
key bill in the four-bill package
won a 58-40 vote of approval, two
more votes than the passage re-
quirement. Once it cleared the
lower chamber, lawmakers passed
the other three in rapid-fire order
and routed the whole package to
the Senate.
Twelve Republicans joined 46
Democrats in voting for the mort
gage plan, which had met defeat
in the house twice in the last six
Last Resort
The governor proposed it as a
last resort for averting payless
paydays for state employes. Defeat,
he said,; would leave lawmakers
the alternatives of liquidating the
fund or allowing the state to fail
its financial obligations.
Under his proposal, securities In
the fund would be transferred to
the University and'Michigan State
University for use as collateral il
borrowings. Other securities would
be placed in the school employes
retirement fund, releasing equiva-
lent funds for state school aid
This action is best for the citi-
zens as a whole and for the vet-
erans, Gov. Williams said. "If
there was liquidation, it would
take care of the citizens but
wouldn't do anything for the vet
Vets Organize
Leaders of four veterans organi-
zations - the American Legion,
Veterans of Foreign Wars, Dis-
abled American Veterans and
Marine Corps League-summoned
their members to a protest dem-
onstration against mortgaging the
fund. Only about 75 members of
the group showed up in the house
galleries to watch the vote.
Gov. Williams said he had "real
hopes" the Senate would go along
with the mortgaging proposal. He
declined to estimate a deadline an
passage for avoiding payless pay-
Bankers have indicated they
