Gloria Murphy, the 19 year-
old wife of a literary college
student, was stabbed to death
yesterday by an unknown as-
sailant in her apartment in
University Towers at 536 S.
Chief of Police Walter Krasny
said James Murphy, '69, returned
to his apartment on the third floor
of the building yesterday after-

his wife's knife-slashed body. The
Murphy's three-week old daugh-

He said that preliminary exam-

had not been sexually molested.

who saw the apartment after the

body was splattered with blood.

The local New Mobilization's plans for the Christ-
mas holidays focus on anti-war activities at the Rose
Bowl game in Pasadena on New Year's Day.

lined Mobe's plans to encourage non-disruptive pro-
tests at the game between Michigan and Southern

Richard Austin, defeated Detroit mayoral candi-
date, will speak at the meeting on the anti-war move-
ment and its relationship to Michigan politics. Austin
has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the
U.S. Senate.
New Mobe coordinator Cohen calls the projected
Rose Bowl demonstration "a tremendous opportunity
for football fans to express their opinions to the world
in a non-violent manner."
"This is an extremely important opportunity to
reach people outside of the campus," continues Cohen.
"The silent majority will be watching."


Regents slate
open hearing
J o RTCissue
The Regents will hold an open hearing Thursday, Dec. 18,
on ithe University's Reserve Officer Training Corps program,
before considering Senate Assembly's recommendations for
major changes in the University's relationship to the program.
Although it is unclear whether any final action will be
taken at their December meeting, the Regents are expected
to discuss and consider action on Senate Assembly's report.
Several Regents indicate they favor having the military
officer training program on campus, but that they will ser-
iously consider the views of the faculty, students, and other
persons who attend the hearing.
Secretary of the University Herbert Hildebrandt said rep-
resentatives of several groups were invited by the University
to speak at the hearing.
Besides the Assembly's academic
affairs commuittee, which devel-
oed the recommendations, There h
will be eremsentatives from Stu-
dent Government Council, Grad-
uate Assembly, Veterans of For-
eign Wars, and the American U t for

Hildebrandt said he has not

United Press International reported yesterday that
President Nixon may see the Rose Bowl game in per-
son unless congressional business requires his pres-
ence in Washington.
"We want total participation in the demonstration
-students, Regents, players, band members, faculty,"
Cohen emphasized. "Anyone who wants to stage at
the Rose Bowl a manifestation of their belief in an
immediate withdrawal from Vietnam is encouraged
to participate."
New Mobe and the Michigan Petition Drive for
Peace also will formulate plans at tonight's meeting
for students to "take the Moratorium home for Christ-
Petition Drive spokesman Bruce Reynolds said that
following Austin's speech, those at the meeting will
break down into groups by their home congressional
The national office of the New Mobilization is
coordinating Christmas activities including an econ-
omic boycott, a presentation of peace postcards to
President Nixon, radio advertisements, canvassing of
congressional districts and organizing veterans against
the war.

The economic boycott will involve an approach
encouraging local consumers to buy only at establish-
ments whose owners are for immediate withdrawal.
Also calling for immediate withdrawal from Viet-
nam are the Mobe-sponsored postcards and letters
which will be presented to President Nixon on either
Dec. 13 or 14.
Pro-peace radio advertisements sponsored by the
Business Executive's Move for Peace in Vietnam
(BEM) will feature one-minute messages f'om people
such as Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. George
Wald and Rear Admiral Arnold E. True.
Canvassing of congressional candidates will entail
campaigns in local communities publicizing the vot-
ing record of congressmen regarding the war.
Mobe workers will make clear that unless their
congressman supports immediate withdrawal from
Vietnam, they will work against him in future elec-
Organizing of veterans will be coordinated by a

Students for Educational Inno-
vation President Jack Eisner re-
signed yesterday to accept a posi-
tion on the education school's
newly-created ad-hocstudent-f a-
culty assembly.
"The decision was mutually
made by SEI's executive commit-
tee and myself following my se-
lection by a student review board
to the Assembly" Eisner explained
"The dicision indicates the im-
portance which the executive
committee places on the role of
the assembly," he added.

were chosen by a student review

Aften ten months of work, the
committee searching for a new
vice president for student services
hopes to be able to provide Presi-
dent Fleming with several candi-
dates by Dec. 31.
The original list of over 60 can-
didates is now narrowed down to
less than six.
The student - faculty committee
was appointed by Fleming to find
a successor to Richard Cutler, who
left the post in January, 1968.
Barbara Newell has served as act-
ing vice president since July, 1968.
The search committee has com-
pleted its interviews, says co-:
chairman Prof. Frank Kennedy of

the law school, and has a "close
enough consensus to hammer out
a report."
That report will probably in-
lude specific recommendations
about the position as well as the
names of the committee's choices
for the vice presidency, explains
co-chairman Steve Nissen, Daily
city editor.-
"Some of the recommendations
we have talked about include a
provision that the appointment be
limited to a term of about three
to five years, and whether the
office might be best administered
by a student-faculty policy board,"
