Amerieans Return From


Three Americans returned to
New York from an unauthorized
trip to North Viet Nam Sunday
night. Returning from the 10-day
journey were: Tom Hayden, a
social organizer, one of the foun-
ders of Students for a Democratic
Society and a former editor of
the Daily, Prof. Staughton Lynd,
of the sociology department at
Yale University and Herbert Ap-
theker, director of the American
Institute for Marxist Studies and
a theoritician of the American
Communist Party.
There has been as yet no in-
dication whether either the Jus-
tice or State Departments will
take action against the three.
There is a ban for United States
citizens against travel to North
Viet Nam.
According to the New York
Times, customs officials relieved
Hayden of some literature at Ken-
nedy Airport including two soft-

Viet Naia
cover books and some tape re-
cordings. A customs spokesman
said the material would be exam-
ined to determine if it was sub-
Attitudes Clarfied
Lynd and Hayden gave a press
conference upon their return at
the airport. They said that the
North Vietnamese "do not trust
America's offers of unconditional
peace negotiations." Although
they said that they did not return,
"with a dramatic concession or an
exquisite peace feeler," they felt
the trip did bring "significant
clarifications" of North Viet-
namese attitudes towards the
United States. Lynd later added,
"that many ingredients of an
honorable settlement exist."
In a statement, Lynd and Hay-
den said that North Viet Nam and
the Communist-led National Lib-
eration Front demand "an un-
ambiguous decision" by the U.S.
to withdraw troops as a condition
for negotiation.

However, they added that the
Communists were willing to offer
America "considerable freedom in
choosing how to demonstrate by
concrete steps that this decision
has been made."

Dean N onnjaniaker
Announces Decision
In Student's Favor
Paul Schiff won his battle for
readmission to Michigan State
University yesterday, but his war
with the MSU administration may
not be over.
Prof. Eldon Nonnamaker, asso-
ciate dean of students at MSU,
announced yesterday that Schiff
would be allowed to register for
Winter Term. Schiff has claimed
in a lawsuit against the univer-
sity that he was unjustifiably de-
nied readmission last June be-
cause of his previous activist be-
havior on campus.
Schiff told The Daily that his
reacceptance did not in any way
represent "a reconciliation with
the university in any philosophi-
cal sense." When asked if he
might proceed to sue MSU for
damages stemming from their re-
fusal to readmit him, Schiff re-
plied that, "that certainly isn't
out of the question."
The announcement that Schiff
would be readmitted followed ac-
tions by both the American Civil
Liberties Union and the American
Association'of University Profes-
sors severely criticizing MSU for
its initial refusal to reaccept him.
Both the ACLU 'and the AAUP
filed briefs with the Grand Rap-
ids District Court accusing .MSU
of depriving Schiff of his consti-
tutional rights.
When asked if Schiff's read-
mission signified a change in
Michigan State policy, Prof. Non-
namaker replied that, "there has
been no change in university pol-
icy. The university may keep a
student out for one, two, or three
terms, but rarely is a student kept
out longer than that." Nonna-
maker stated that he felt MSU's
original charges against Schiff in
denying him readmission were still
valid, but he explained that all
cases of disciplinary action by the
university are subject to later re-
view, as was true in this case.
Hailed as 'Victory'
Prof. Walter Adams, head of the
Michigan State AAUP chapter
which previously criticized the ad-
ministration, hailed the move as
.a victory both for Schiff and for
the university. He stated that he
was pleased that the matter could
be resolved by an internal decision
of the university rather than by a
court order.
"We have always believed," Ad-
ams stated, "that, where reason
prevails, the university is perfect-
ly capable of self-government. We
have also believed that once Pres-

Ann Arbor City Council completed a year old move toward
effective urban planning last night when it passed Central Busi-
ness District High-Rise and Parking Ordinances on second read-
ing. The move makes the' ordinances law. Councilman Paul John-
son cast a single dissenting vote in the high-rise ballot, but the
parking ordinance was passed unanimously. The ordinances were
drawn from a report written by a committee of University, com-
munity and private representatives.
"Course evaluation questionnaires must be mailed within the
next two days," a representative of the Committee for Course
Evaluation said yesterday. "The response must be immediate and
large in order for the committee to compile a meaningful booklet
before preregistration," he emphasized. Approximately 1000
questionnaires have been received to date.

Contrary to the report in Sunday's Daily, the SDS protest
against the reclassification of 12 University students involved in
the draft board sit in on Oct. 15 will occur from Feb. 10 to 17
instead of Jan. 10-17. In addition, VOICE Political Party, the
University chapter of SDS, has not yet decided on participation
in the protest, but will reach a decision at its general member-
ship meeting tonight.

Reporting last night to the
University chapter of the Ameri-
can Association of University Pro-
fessors, Profs. Bradford Perkins of
the history department and E.
1 Lowell Kelly of the psychology de-
partment questioned the role of
j the newly established State Board
of Education. They also discussed
the extent to which the Board
poses a threat to the autonomy of
the various institutions of higher
education throughout the state.
The Board, which was created
in its present form by the Con-
stitutional Convention of 1963 and
took office last January, has been
envisioned by many -as a potential
threat to the traditional inde-
pendence of the various universi-
ties throughout the state.
The Board has also been criti-
cized because of its inherent,
bureaucratic nature and its seem-
ing status as an unwanted "mid-
dleman" to further complicate and
prolong relationships between the
various institutions and the state

Needed Liason
jIn defending the Board, how-

emphasized that it provides a lia-
son between the state's universi-
ties. This liason is needed to allow

Pressure on Congress
Earlier this year, Congress, un-
der heated pressure from univer-
sity officials, dropped the 20 per
cent limit on reimbursement for
indirect costs under federal re-
search grants. The appropriations
committees of Congress replaced
this with a "mandatory cost shar-
ing plan." Under the plan, in-
stitutions receiving a grant must
now pay a portion of the total
cost of the project, hopefully a
lesser percentage than under the
indirect cost reimbursement form-
ula. However, Congress gave
