Late World News
By The Associated Press
SAIGON-South Vietnam has proposed to the Communists
on Saturday a 24-hour truce in Vietnam on the anniversary of
Buddha's birth May 23 and said it was ready to talk about a
longer cease-fire.
An announcement made yesterday said the Saigon govern-
ment "solemnly appeals to the other side to heed this appeal to
allow all Buddhist followers to celebrate the festival."
The truce appeal is backed by all six allied nations fighting
in Vietnam on the side of the South Vietnamese.
The South Vietnamese government said it "is ready to meet
with North Vietnamese sepresentatives to discuss any furher
details of the truce or its possible extension."
The proposed truce would extend from midnight May 22 to
midnight 23.
WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY students participating in a
cam~us poll indicated Thursday that they favor an immediate
American ceasefire and withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam,
the Associated Press reported.
The poll was challenged by Dean of Students Duncan Sells,
who noted only a fraction of WSU's 30,800 students took part in
the balloting. Only 2,071 ballots were cast at 10 polling places.
The referendum showed 1,070- votes 51.7 per cent backing
withdrawal and 1,001 48.3 per cent against such a move. The poll
was sponsored by the Wayne Committee to End the War in Viet-
nam and the Student Mobilization Committee.

PROF. DONALD BROWN of the psychology department yes-
terday corrected a report in yesterday's Daily on a pahel discus-
sion he participated in. He said his position was that, "While
it is true that students in general no longer hold to the old-
fashioned morality where sexual relations outside of marriage
are sinful, a new and more personal morality has evolved," in
which the "Implications of the deeply interpersonal aspects of
sexual behavior determine the decision. Young people of today
are more aware of the possible psychological, social and physical
harm that can follow from indiscriminate relations. They should
govern their behavior in terms of their readiness to assume total
responsibility for its total. consequences such as psychological,
social and economic damage to one or the other partners."
