Late World News
By The Associated Press
TOKYO-Brandishing the slogan "Mongolia for the Mongo-
lians," communist China's Mongolian-born Vice Premier Ulanfu
apparently has turned his armed forces in Inner Mongolia against
Mao Ts-tung, a wall newspaper in Peking reported yesterday.
It was the first claimed instance of regular army units being
used against the Chinese Communist chairman, who had ordered
the army to use guns to rout his foes.
The 63-year-old Ulanfu, a virtual czar, was quoted in the wall
newspaper as opposing "the inflow of Chinese race into Mongolia
and supports a Mongolia by Mongolians." Among other things
he is commander and political commissar of the inner Mongolian
army region. He has been assailed in some Maoist posters and
reports said Ulanfu's troops in Huhohaot's, the capital, attacked
Maoists Monday'and demanded they get out of inner Mongolia.,

that the 15 WSU students arrested
in a series of narcotics raids in
Detroit yesterday will appear be-
fore the university's Non-Aca-

Series of Raids
The series of raids, in which
least 56 persons were arrested,
were conducted by Detroit police
and state and federal narcotics
bureaus. In six hours, small quan-
tiis of marijuana and what were
tentatively identified as LSD cap-
sules and barbituates were con-#
According to one WSU student,
many of those arrested were
charged with possession of msri-
juana and intent to sell.
Number of Arrests
The biggest number of arrests
was made at the Artist's Workshop
on John Lodge, the Detroit head-
quarters for LeMar, an organi-
zation promoting the legalization
of marijuana. Among those ar-
rested at the Worshop was John
Sinclair, who has been arrested
twice before on narcotics charges.
According to Sinclair's wife, "no
search warrant was presented by
the police before the raid. And

after local, state, and federal offi-

area raids pending further in-

Birt'h-Defect Virus Discovelry
?tomises Vaccine Prevenution

Two Michigan researchers, one
a University professor, report they
have established that some heart
defects in babies are caused by a
not-uncommon virus.
The study offers hope, in time,
for a preventive vaccine which
women would take before or at
the beginning of pregnancy, they
Research pointing to the Cox-
sackie-B type of virus as the cul-
prit was reported by Dr. Gordon
C. Brown, professor of epidemiol-
ogy at the University School of
Public Health and Dr. Tommy N.
Evans, chairman of the depart'-
ment of obstetrics and gynecology
at Wayne State University.
The virus can cause mild symp-
toms, or the infections may go un-
Brown emphasized in an inter-
view yesterday that it had been!
established statistically that Cox-
sackie-B was a cause of congenital
heart defects, but by no means
the only one.
Brown- and Evans have spent
seven years in their research into
congenital heart defects and
Brown said many more will be
required, adding, however, "Ourl
evidence looks highly significant."

"Now that we've pegged the
virus," Evans said, "the people
who know tell us it should be fea-
sible to make a vaccine to prevent
the mother from ever getting in-
fected in the first place."
Women undergoing Coxsackie-Bj
virus, infections during these early
months of pregnancy are found,
statistically, to run a higher risk
of having babies whose hearts are
damaged, the researchers find.

The defects include damaged
valves, holes in the/heart's cham-
bers, and constricted blood vessels.
The scientists discovered that if
a woman is infected with the
virus during the first three months
of pregnancy, there is twice the
normal risk of having a baby
with a damaged heart. Symptoms
may be nonexistent or only slight,
they said.

State Board
Okays MSU
Med School
Also Recommends
'U', WSU Expansion;
Cite Manpower Need
The State Board of Education
yesterday approved the expansion
of Michigan State University's
existing two-year medical curri-
culum to, a full four-year program
leading to a doctoral degree.
In a three-pronged motion at
their regular bi-monthly meeting,
the board approved the MSU plan
and recommended expansion of
the medical schools at the Uni-
versity and Wayne State Univer-
The board acted on recommen-
dations of November from its Cit-
izens' Committee on Health Care
Education which urged that the
University expand its medical
school from 210 first-year places
to 260; that WSU double its
present capacity of 125 first-year
places; and that the MSU plan
be approved, if the MSU plans
would not curb expansion now
under way at the two existing
Board More General
The board's recommendations,
however, were more general. It
deleted both the suggested figures
and the priority granted to the
University and WSU.
"We leave it to the autonomous
governing boards of the institu-
tions to determine their points of
diminishing returns for expan-
sion," Board President Edwin No-
vak explained last night. .
Novak was unanimously elected
president of the board at yester-
day's meeting.
The recommendations are aim-
ed at achieving a minimum goal
of 590 places within the decade
to bring Michigan up to national
medical manpower averages. The
state now has 335 places in the
two existing medical schools.
Under a 1965 attorney general's
ruling, the Legislature cannot
grant funds for a state college or
university to begin a new pro-
gram until it receives a recom-
mendation froni the state board.
Legislators Favorable
Legislators are thought to be
generally favorable to the MSU
plan, according to Associated Press
Nonetheless, MSU can expect a
fight in the Legislature with th
Univeristy and WSU for a share
of the funds. The University has
long opposed ambitions for a med-
ical school in East Lansing.
Shortly, before the two-year
MSU program opened last fall, the
University requested State Board
of Education approval of expand-
ing the program to four years.
Last November the board de-
cided to forego action until a pro-
posal for a state-supported osteo-
pathic college would be presented.
Another vote was taken at the
board's Dec. 21 meeting but ended
in a deadlock since four members
of the eight-man board still
thought they should wait for the
At yesterday's meeting, however,
the board decided the osteopath s
plan was "not that close to real-
ity" to warrant waiting-any longer,
Novak said. "We are still going
ahead with a full study of the
osteopaths' proposal."

three showings last night. Cinema
Guild offieials announced to the
crowd milling about the Archi-
tecture building that the ,ched-
uled films would be shown as
many times as necessary to ac-
commodate all who attended.
Meanwhile, Student Government
Council yesterday kicked off its
own fund drive to raise money for

ed Tuesday to defend the three
students and one faculty member
arrested last week for exhibiting
"Flaming Creatures."
25 Volunteers
