THE SENATE passed a compromise student loan program.
The bill raises the interest ceiling on loans to college students
from seven per cent to ten per cent. The difference would be paid by
a federal subsidy.
Previously, banks had been unwilling to loan money to students
because they could lend to other customers at higher interest rates.
The bill also appropriates $240 million in additional federal aid
to students from low income families. The measure also calls for a
study by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare of al-
leged discrimination against students by certain banks.
The bill now goes to the House of Representatives for approval.
THE VATICAN was the scene'of intense debate over proposalsI
for liberalizing the church.
Speaking before Pope Paul VI at the Second World Synod, clergy-
men from three continents urged that bishops be granted more power.
The proposal, which is symptomatic of the current dissent overj
the monarchal power of the papacy, was criticized by conservativei
churchmen who warned that a decrease in papal authority would
spread confusion and conflict among the world's Catholics.
THE SOVIET UNION launched two more cosmonauts into
The two cosmonauts will bring the total number of Russians now
in orbit to seven. Observers in Moscow say the mission is designed as'
a step toward the construction of an orbital space laboratory.
Official announcements indicated that yesterday's launching
was the last planned in the experiment.
UNEMPLOYMENT will rise above four per cent in the coming
months, predicts a leading economist.
Arthur W. Okum, who was chairman of the Council of Economic
Advisors under former President Johnson, said that the unemployment
increase was not high enough to be feared. He added that the Nixon
administration's fiscal policy was maintaining the degree of restraint
necessary to curb inflation while insuring high employment prosperity.
In recent weeks Nixon's policy has come under attack as being
a possible prelude to a recession. This view was heightened last week
when the Labor Department announced that unemployment had
increased from 3.5 to 4 per cent during September.

Supreme Court to rule
on non-religious CO




Also sets review
of ADC limits
Supreme Court agreed yester-
day to review the constitu-
tionality of a provision in the
draft law which requires that
conscientious o b j e c t i o n be
based on religious belief.
In its first decisions under
Chief Justice Warren E. Burger,
the Supreme Court also announced
they would hear arguments on the
constitutionality of the attempt
by 27 states to set absolute limits
on the amount of public assistance
any one family can receive.
The draft case stems from con-
tradictory rulings made by two
federal courts.
Earlier this year, Federal Judge
Charles E. Wyzanski, Jr. of Boston
found the religious requirement to
be unconstitutionally discrimina-
tory against people with no re-
ligious beliefs.
However, a federal court in Cal-
ifornia upheld the law in another
test case. Yesterday, the Supreme
Court said they would review both
cases, paving the way for what
many observers feel would be a
decision with far-reaching effects
on the Selective Service System.
The welfare case will be heard
on an appeal from the state of
Maryland, where a $250 per month
family maximum was ruled illegal
last March by a federal court in
In addition, the Supreme Court
agreed to hear an appeal which
asks that a $10-million per month
reduction in welfare assistance to
ffamilies in New York state be

"We the undersigned faculty and student members of the Asian Studies commu-
nity at the University of Michigan feel it is our special obligation to speak out in
opposition to the war in Vietnam, and are therefore supporting the nationwide
October 15 Moratorium.
"Since we are personally involved in the study of Asian culture and societies, we
are particularly aware of the futility and inhumanity of this war, and of the in-
creased distortions and rigidities in American foreign policy in Asia. We cannot
accept in silence the current position of the U.S. administration and instead de-
mand the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops andsupplies from Vietnam.
"We intend to suspend all regular academic functions on October 15 and to sup-
port the activities of the Moratorium, including organizing public action against
the war, helping to educate people on the issues, and attending the Mass Rally."

The planned protest evoked a
wave of Vietnam debate in the
Senate, where two former sup-
