Hill's music is different and
typical of the "new jazz" move-
ment. He tries to bring to the
listener the emotional and intel-
lectual content, the meaning of
the musicians themselves as men
and as artists. He has put out
many albums which illustrate this

most interpreters of Shakespeare,

SAIGON (')--Public and private
statements in the past week indi-
cate Vietnamese officials may be
changing their views toward talk-
ing peace with North Vietnam.
Top officials in the Saigon mil-
itary regime once regarded talk
of negotiations with suspicion and
distrust. Some equated negotia-
tions with sellout.
Now they appear willing to think
about what was unthinkable a few
months ago. The change is vague
and hard to define.
Conflist of Interest Appears
Not. To Disqualify Board

Board Member Marilyn Jean;
Kelly said that before the election
of the board two years ago, the
attorney general issued an opinion
that there is not a substantial con-
flict of interest with teachers at
public institutions but she added
that whether Augenstein can be
included in that decision depends
on how his role as department
head is defined. Miss Kelly teach-
es at Eastern Michigan University.,

serving on the board, said that if
a man is selected to fill a post

Augenstein and James O'Neil,
both Republicans, won the two
open seats on the previously all-
Democrat board in the election
last November. O'Neil said last
night that he did not wish to
comment on Augenstein's alleged
conflict of interest but that he
favors making a formal board
policy statement on conflict of
Augestein, unavailable for com-
ment, has previously said that al-
though he had orignally decided
to disqualify himself he would
"have to consider that decision"
in light of the board's action Dec.

not to approvve the MSU pro-
posal and asked for a presentation
on the osteopathic college pro-
posal as soon as possible.
South Vietnamese leaders had
for many months summarily dis-
missed the possibility of negotiat-

There is no indication that
South Vietnam would like to end
the war just for the sake of ending
it, especially now with American
units doing most of the fighting.
South Vietnam's leaders are not
prepared to rush to a bargaining
table, but they show signs of ac-
cepting what may be inevitable.
Some agree the National Libera-

included in any peace conference,
