BANGKOK (M)-Big guns of re-
treating Red forces set ablaze the
United States embassy and other
buildings yesterday in Vietiane.
Americans and many others
fled the fought-over capital of
Non-Communists seemed to have
gained the upper hand by early
this morning.
Communists appeared to have
fired aimlessly from the edges of
the city in hit-or-miss efforts to
destroy it as they left.
Radio reports from United
States embassy employes in Vien-
tiane this morning described the
capital as quiet. The fires set by
shelling of retreating pro-Com-
munists had died down.
Shell Embassy
The United States embassy was
among more than 10 buildings
badly damaged by fire after being
hit by shells.
Four Americans have suffered
minor injuries in the three days
of fighting for the city between

New Building.
The University began building
for the future this year - with
state - approved capital outlay
funds, the first in four years.
The construction gap was be-
ing partially filled by federal and
private aid: the Kresge Founda-
tion is putting up the largest part
of funds for a new center for the
study of hearing and federal and
private agencies combined to fi-
nance the Pharmacy Research
Building, which was dedicated
Dec. 1.
The first building dedicated this
year was the Mental Health Re-
search Institute, constructed with
both University and private funds.
From the state, came $9 million
for the Physics-Astronomy Insti-
tute Building and a structure to
house the University's two cyclo-
trons. The state also provided
cash to remodel several present

ahead with a $900,000 addition

SGC last May took a first big
step toward eliminating discrim-
inatory practices in recognized
student organizations.
The Council unanimously pass-
ed a regulation which requires the
groups to "select membership and
afford opportunities to members
on the basis of personal merit and
not race, color, religion, creed, na-
tional origin or ancestry."
A membership selection com-
mittee in student organizations-
presently consisting of four stu-
dents, one professor and two ad-
ministrators-was set up to ad-
vise the Council, which has final
authority, on policy decisions in
the area and to investigate al-
leged discrimination in the stu-
dent groups.
The committee organized thisI
fall must submit its operating pro-
cedures for Council approval be-
fore semester's end. It will then
be ready to function.
Partially to aid the membership
selection committee and partially
to implement its general func-
tion of recognition, the Council
passed a motion requiring frater-
nities and sororities to submit a

statement of their written and un-
written membership rules, regu-
lations, policies and criteria.
Previously, the deans of men
and women kept these statements.
Student Action...
University students took an ac-
tive, organized interest in nation-
al and world affairs with activi-
ties ranging from the Ann Arbor
Direct Action Committee's picket-
ing of local stores to the forma-
tion of a conservative group, the
Young Americans For Freedom,
this month.
AADAC evolved out of a group
of student picketers and local cit-
izens who began demonstrations
last spring against alleged .dis-
criminatory practices. They pick-
eted a State St. dress shop ac-
cused of discriminating against
Negroes in Ann Arbor, and
branches of national chain stores
accused of discrimination in the

World News Roundup

By The Associated Press
LONDON - The Ethiopian ra-
dio reported last night an "in-
human massacre" in Addis Abara,
where crown prince Asfa Wassan
has been proclaimed king replac-
ing his father, deposed emperor
Haile Selassie.
Several civilians were reported
killed and many wounded.
The broadcast said "A group of
bandits .. . opened fire on peace-
ful civilians demonstrating for the
new representative people's govern-
ment." It reported later that "the
two fighting parties have settled
their dispute" and agreed to work
with the new regime.
KATMANDU, Nepal - King
Mahendra yesterday arrested'
popular premier B. P. Koirala

and other cabinet ministers, sus-
pended the constitution, and took
over all powers in this Himalayan
He accused the Koirala govern-
and order, harboring undesirable
activity and killing the peoples'
democratic aspirations." It was
the first elected government in the'
nation's history.

Diplomatic sources said the new
proposal would be submitted to the
UN General Assembly before it
convenes this morning for debate
on the Congo.

U.S. Support
United States yesterday pledged
its full backing to the fledgling
anti-Communist government of
Laos in its battle to maintain its
freedom and prevent a takeover
from any neighboring Com-
munist regime.
incoln White, State Depart-
ment press officer, made the
United States position clear and
indicated that full assistance
will be given to Prince Boun
Oum, head of the newly-formed
leftist paratrooper Capt. Kong Le.
An Associated Press correspon-
dent said anti-Communist forces
held the center of the city last
night and the aimlessness of the
shelling suggested Kong Le may
make good his threat to level Vien-
tiane before giving it up.
Set Afire
The United States embassy was
hit by three mortar shells before
flames from an adjacent building
set its roof afire.
The opening up of shell fire
prompted the mass evacuation.
Moon Rocket
Fails in Flight
massive Atlas-Able moon rocket
exploded in flight yesterday, end-
ing an abortive $40 million United
States program to launch the first
lunar satellite.
The blazing explosion 40,000
feet over the Atlantic hurled
flaming fragments of the 10-story-
tall rocket and a 388-pound space-
craft into the water 8 to 12 miles
off Cape Canaveral. The silver-
plated spacecraft was crammed
with electronic instruments geared
to make an extensive study of the
moon's environment.

the University this year with a
first conference, one on Ameri-

Out of national election issues
grew Americans Committed to
World Responsibility, a local
group begun by Alan and Judith
Guskin, both graduate students.
This group is dedicated to urging
the establishment of an Inter-
national Youth Corps, an overseas
civil service.
Local political interest mani-
fested itself in Voice, student lib-
eral political party, which suc-
ceeded in electing its three candi-
dates to SGC in the best-organiz-
ed political campaign in years.
Advocates of student action, the
group stresses great student in-
volvement in all affairs which
touch the student.
Most recently the directed stu-
dent interest has emerged in ac-
