SAIGON 1.- U.S. B52 Stratofortresses resumed their
bombing of enemy targets in South Vietnam Saturday after a
36-hour halt ordered by President Nixon to test the intentions
of the Communist command.
The 36-hour period ended at midnight, Saigon time, and
soon after the B52's were ordered to resume bombing mis-
sions, military spokesmen said.
The White House disclosed that Nixon had directed that
the B52 raids be resumed after ordering the halt to see what
the Viet Cong intended to do after their three-day cease-fire,
called to mourn the death of President Ho Chi Minh of North
Vietnam.

CSJ as ks
Normani
to testify
By JIM NEUBACHER
The Central Student Judiciary
yesterday drafted a letter request-
ing nine University scientists and
A Geoffrey Norman, Vice Presi-
dent for Research. to appear as
witnesses for the defense in the
SDS "lock-in" trial.
Th e names were selected from
a list submitted to t h e CSJ by
Kenmeth Mogill, legal representa-
tive for the defendants, at a pre-
liminary hearing yesterday after-
noon. Counsel for both parties met
with the CSJ to lay the ground-
work for the trial, scheduled to
begin Wednesday, Sept. 17. at 7:30
p.m. in the Michigan Union As-
sembly Hail.
CSJ will also request that the
witnesses bring with them "All re-
ports, abstracts and agreements
concerning military-related re-
search" administered t h r o u g h
their offices or conducted under
the auspices of their laboratories.
The CSJ c a s e involves three
University students and SDS, as
a student organization. They are
charged with violating t h e Stu-
dent Government Council ban on
disruptive sit-ins during a dem-
onstration March 25.
At that time, a group of about
25 persons locked Augustin S.
L'Etoile into a room in West En-
gineering building for five hours,
and prevented students and fac-
ulty members from keeping their
job interview appointments.
L'Etoile was recruiting employ-
es for the Naval Underwater Wea-
pons Development Lab.
Although the CSJ calnot coer-
ce the witnesses to appear, failure
to respond to a formal request will
be noted, and may be taken, into
account by CSJ in its deliberations
on the case.
Norman said last night he would
wait. to receive the official com-
munication from the CSJ before
nakin a decision. He 1 int ed
however, that. le was not inclined
to attend, saying "The CSJ wil

ever I know would be relevant to

day for the first time as the at-
torney for the plaintiff, the En-

student-faculty committee of the
engineering college, was respon-

According to military spokes-
men, Ihen the Viet Cong resumed
the pre-truce level of attacks,
showing no sign of an intention to
de-escalate the fighting in South
Vietnam, the B52's were ordered
into the air again.
The B52's had carried out no
bombing missions in South Viet-
nam during the three-day Viet
Cong truce. They were resumed
temporarily Thursday morning
when in response to new attacks
but the number of sorties was
about half the normal level.
Th? White House said the pause
was to give the enemy "every
benefit of the doubt."
Sources in Saigon did not rule
out the possibility that the B52
raids, while being resumed, might
be scaled down.
During the suspension in Viet-
nam, the B52's still were hitting
infiltration routes in Laos, mili-
tary sources said.
Air strikes by tactical fighter-
bombers in South Vietnam con-
tinued at about the same level as
just before the cease-fire. The U.S.
command said 390 tactical air
strikes were flown Thursday.
Since the order to halt t h e
bombings was on the highest lev-
el, it left many U.S. officers in
South Vietnam in doubt as to
what Washington had in mind.
One military source had said
he thought it "a gesture of de-
escalation" to the new collective
leadership in North Vietnam that
succeeded Ho.
.ADC talkS
ruled out
Bent F. Nielsen, chairman of
the County Board of Supervisors,
said yesterday he would not call
a special meeting of the Board
to discuss the school clothing al-
lowances with the Welfar: Rights
Committee WRC).
Nielsen's action came in response
to a request by the WRC, which is
acting as a bargaining agent for
the ADC mothers, for a special
meeting with the Supervisors to
discuss. "the inadequacy of this
years ADC clothing allotment.''
The WR'C letter said '"Such a
meeting is dsi'rable at this time
to avoid the necessity for the type
of confrontation which occured
last year.
However, Nielsen said "A meet-
ing won't solve' their problems. We
haven't got the money for more
clothing allowances and I don't
know where it will come from."
Last year the County provided a
$70 emergency supplement for
each school age child. This year,
the county Social Services Board
allotted $16.50 as a supplement
to the S11 amount which the state
provides.

Leaders of the anti-ROTC
movement cancelled sched-
uled disruptions -of ROTC
classes yesterday but called
for a mass disruption at North
Hall Monday at 1 p.m.
The action, announced at a
noon Diag rally of over 300 per-
sons, came in response to a
warning by President Robben
Fleming Thursday night that the
University may l)Iosecute demon- ~
strators under statutory law.
Acting Vice President for Stu-
dent Affairs Barbara Newell.add-
ed further yesterday morning that
more disruptions would probably
result in the prosecution of Thurs-
day's demonstrators even if they
.i not return to North Hall
again.
''At the moment we have had an
incident," said Mrs. Newell. "But
we cannot tolerate a continued
affair.'
Mrs. Newell added that "pres-
sures for prosecution are extreme-

tion) cannot say yesterday's ac-
tions have been excused."

New controversy rises over
judicial boards' authonty

By JIM BEATTIE
If the proposed new Regents
bylaws on University judicial
practices are not approved soon,
a student court and a faculty
board may find themselves wa'-
ing pieces of paper at each other,
each claiming to have decided a
student's fate.
On the other hand, the two
groups - Central Student Judici-
ary and the literary college ad-
ministrative board--may just ig-
nore each other and hope the
problem goes away.
The University's disciplinary
process is and will be unclear un-
til the new bylaws are approved
by the Regents. Under the pro-
posed bylaws, whose drafting be-
gan in the wake of the 1966 stu-
dent power movement.. CSJ will
judge all students accused of vio-
lating any University rules except
in strictly academic cases
But util the new bylaws take
effect. the University's schools
and colleges are functioning un-
der' a set of itterim rules. An d.
pointing to the LSA faculty code.
the administrative board claims
full authority to judge students
until there are i ew all-Universit
rules made by the prop~osed Un i-
versity Council.
The current controversy centers
around Shaw Whitney, the first
LSA student convicted of a non-
academic offense by the LSA
board. And with more disruption
a distinct possibility in the ROTC
and bookstore actions, the prob-
lem has become more critical.
Whitney, now a senior, is a Re-
sistance member who was placed
on disciplinary probation for one
year after he took part in an un-
announced guerrilla theatre skit
during a political science 'lass.

A nuiber of student leaders say
Whitney's punishment by the ad-
ministrative board was illegiti-
mate however, because the board
is not a student court but a fac-
ulty body. Whitney, they say,
should appeal the decision to CSJ.
which they feel could overturn the
decision.
''11 you take into account the
Student Government Cotncil bill
of rights and all of SGC's legisla-
tion on judicial matters in the last
four years. then the board did not
have the right to hear the Whit-
ney case," says Michael Davis,
Grad, a former SGC member and
one of the members of the com-
mittee which drafted the proposed
bylaw\s.
"If Whitney had appealed his
case. CSJ would undoubtedly have
reversed the decision and issued
an order enjoining the LSA clean

to destroy th' n cord. " aDavis
coiitenids.
But LSA Assistant Dean James
Shaw is very clear in his percep-
tion of the administrative board's
atthority.
"The faculty code gives the
board responsibility for executing
the will of the faculty in cases'
like this, and until the Regents
bylaws are passed. I would assume
ve should abide by those rules,",
he says.
In addition. he believes CSJ
does not have the authority to
overrule a decision of the admin-
istrative board.
'The administrative board could
act, as an appeal board if a stu-
dent wished to appeal a decision
of CSJ. but in my opinion CSJ
does not have the authority to
overrule the board.' he says.
So far, Whitney is not planning

Recall Harvey cami1paign mounts
Offensive for lee led signatures

By SUSY DICKSON
With 8000 signatures still need-
ed. the d r i v e to recall County,
Sheriff Douglas Harvey is mount-
img an intensified campaign this
weekend on petitions asking for a
recall election.
RECALL workers will t a k e to
local shopping centers in an at-
tempt to collect signatures of 15.-
000 registered Washtenaw County
voters by Oct. 8.
At. an organizational meeting
this week for what RECALL calls

i s lirst "offensive." Charles
Thomas, one of the drive's organ-
iers. explained that state law re-
quires collection of 15.000 signa-
tures within a 90-day period to
force a recall election.
The current petition drive be-
gan July 7 shortly after the South
University disorders. But even if
it fails, Thomas said, "We'll keep
on trying. We'll go back to the
first people and ask them to sign
again."
Thomas said the group hopes to
