in the student to make his own
educational decision," he added.
The new degree would demand
50 hours of work in junior and
senior-level courses, but w o u 1 d

foreign language or major in any
Smith said the degree would
need a "rigorous and zealous stu-
dent" to satisfy the 50-hour rule.
Prof. James Gindin, chairman
of the college curriculum commit-
tee, attacked the proposed degree
as "easily becoming a repository
for an inferior program."
"At best we are asking the stu-
dent to gamble, in a kind of aca-
demic Russian roulette, with the
implications of an unknown de-
Gindin was challenged by Prof.
E. Lowell Kelly of the psychology
department. "The new degree
would not provide for elitism
within the college but for plural-
ism. Whether it becomes a cheap
degree depends on the students
who pursue it," Kelly said.
He pointed out the University
already grants a wide variety of
Bachelor of Arts degrees in the
various schools and colleges.
Prof. Ronald Tikovsky, another
ad hoc committee member, came
to the defense of the proposed

"The strength of the degree lies
in the kind of coursework the stu-
dent takes," he said, pointing out
the new degree was modeled along
the lines of a Ph.D. degree.
"If the degree is not meaning-
ful, it means the courses we of-
fer in the college are weak," Ti-
kovsky added.
One new proposal concerning the
language requirement was intro-
duced by Prof. Russell Fraser of
the English department. Fraser
advocated a two-year proficiency
requirement in a foreign language
for admission to the college.
This was seen as an amendment
to the curriculum committee's mi-
nority recommendation, which
would require two years of high
school. study for admission, r e -

In other action, the faculty un-
animously passed a resolution
from Prof. William LeVeque of the
mathematics department asking
that the faculty be given decis-
ion-making power on college ad-
missions policies.
The resolution calls on the Re-

has indicated that before the United States enters direct

Nixon also said "we will not tolerate" continuation of

COMMUNIST EAST GERMANY blockaded all traffic
on the main autobahn to the west for two hours late
The blockade is the most serious in a sequence of har-
assments engineered by the East Germans in protest against
the imminent election of a West German president in West
Berlin. The East Germans and the Russians claim West
Berlin is not a part of West Germany but a third and separate
German entity, and hold that the planned election is illegal.
Within the Communist-walled city, leftist students joined
the protest. About 500 demonstrators on the Kurfuerstendam,
halted traffic and shouted "sieg hell" at West Berlin's police.
IANS continued marching in anti-Soviet demonstrations
in Peking yesterday.
Radio Peking claimed "tens of millions" throughout
China took part in the second straight day of protests follow-
ing the Soviet-Chinese struggle which occured on the Man-
churian border Sunday.
Tanjug, the Yugoslav news agency, said crowds blocking
off the Soviet embassy in Peking appeared to be well organiz-
ed. Tanjug reported the mob assailed the "new Russian czars"
and shouted anti-Soviet and anti-American slogans.
Tass News agency said Russian workers in mass meetings
near the border protested the Communist Chinese "impertin-
ent armed provocation." The two nations exchanged protest
notes Monday.

THE APOLLO 9 ASTRONAUTS fired their powerful
rocket engine yesterday, soaring up to 315 miles from
earth and preparing for a blistering work pace today.
Air Force Cols. James McDivitt and David Scott and civil-
ian Russell Schweickart fired the rocket engine three times,
testing how well they can handle the awkward coupling of
the command module and the lunar module. All three burns
went smoothly.
The astronauts also prepared for their first live tele-
vision broadcast which is planed for today.
HUNDREDS OF TEACHERS, researchers a n d stu-
dents protesting "military involvement" in higher educa-
tion cut classes and work in colleges around the country
I The one-day work strike was led by the Union of Con-
cerned Scientists, founded at Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology, to protest what they called "involvement with the
military industrial complex."
At MT, about 1,000 persons, mostly students, turned out
for the first of a series of symposiums similar to those held
_ in conjunction with the demonstrations around the country.
Generally, the movements did little to interrupt regular uni-
versity routine.
f Arkansas and Virginia state prisons were unfolded at a
s senate hearing yesterday.
Sen. Strom Thurmond accused o n e witness of giving
"nauseating and disgusting" testimony in a publicity-seeking
D bid to "besmirch the great state of Virginia." The charge by
the South Carolina Republican came during the 21/2 hour
hearing of Sen. Thomas Dodd's juvenile delinquency sub-
- committee which is holding a series of hearings on prison
- ALLIED FORCES intensified ground sweeps in Viet-
nam yesterday in an attempt to upset communist plans

for a second phase of a spring offensive.
U.S. military analysts said they believed the first phase
had ended, at least in' the Saigon area. They expected a sec-
ond and more violent series of attacks this weekend or early
next week.
The ground sweeps so far have failed to smoke out the 15
communist battalions - possibly 7,500 men - believed com-
mitted to attacks aimed ultimately at Saigon when the of-
fensive began 10 days ago.
lantic Richfield Co. and Sinclair Oil Corp., were joined
yesterday in what may be the biggest oil company mer-
ger of all time.
The justice department had reluctantly agreed to the
merger Monday, which has been in the works since last Oc-
tober. Stringent conditions imposed by the government would
allow for future restoration of the two separate companies if
court appeals opposing the merger are successful.
The merged company will operate under the Atlantic-
Richfield name.
