THIS WEEK'S TOPIC: HOW TO BUILD PEACE
at the MT. CLEMENS RACEWAY

REVIVAL NO. 2
By JUDY SARASOHN
Ann Arbor recipients of Aid
to Dependent Children are join-
ing other state "mother power"
advocates this week to protest
inadequate welfare budgets.
As part of welfare demonstra-
tions being carried on this week
all o v e r the nation, approxi-
mately 300 ADC mothers - car-
rying their children - marched
on the capitol in Lansing Mon-
The mothers' major demands
are a minimum guaranteed in-
come of $5,500 a year for a fam-
ily of four and a malnutrition
diet allowance and clothing al-
lowance four times a year.
The National Welfare Rights
Organization demands also a
"guaranteed' adequate income
rather than a "patched-up food
program" as a basic sol
hunger in America.

So how are things on the west coast? If you have some spare
time this weekend, you should hop on a plane and catch
some of our acts. We have Savoy Brown on Thursday down
in the Ballroom, which they say is their best U.S. gig as well
as having been- one of their first; and appearing with them
will be All The Lonely People, local band with a lineup
similar to tlat of Blood, Sweat and Tears, only looser and'
less sterile sounding. All this for a mere $2.50.
We finally found a place to hold the Rock and Roll Re-
vival No. 2 on Friday. Mt. Clemens, just out 1-94 has a race-
way track we can use. Savoy Brown will be there at 2, along
with Pentangle, the Frost (they're playing for you next week),
Third Power, and about ten other major local acts, every
one of which you should have booked for your clubs by now.
The weather so far is beautiful out here and so we expect
quite a crowd, especially when you consider the ticket price
is only $3.50 at the gate and $3.00 in advance.
Saturday, we're putting Savoy Brown back in the ballroom
with Pentangle and the Sun for $3.50. And Sunday we just
put in the Greatful Dead at the last minute with Pentangle.
That should be quite a crowd too, because the Pentangle
have separate followings for Bert Jansch and John Renbourn
plus those fans of the group as a whole. We found that we
can do this for only $3.00 even though both bands have top
And that's really about all for now. Keep in touch and do
try and make it this weekend.

WASHINGTON OP) - Secretary
of State William P. Rogers said

fighting and in enemy infiltra-
tion, if it continues, could speed
up the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
"During the last week we have
had the lowest level of combat
activity in Vietnam for a 1o n g
time, possibly during t h e whole
war," Rogers told a news confer-
ence. But he took a wait-and-see
stance on what far-reaching sig-
nificance, if any, this development
might have on the effort toward
ending the war.
He noted that one of the yard-
sticks President Nixon uses in de-
ciding on the rate of American
force withdrawals "is the level of
hostilities by the enemy."
Rogers voiced hope t h a t the

Young claims the legislature

George S. McGovern (D-S.D.),
said yesterday that a secret ses-
sion with Communist negotiatorsI
in Paris convinced him that the
United States must start a "sys-
tematic withdrawal" of troops and
quit supporting the Thieu regime

McGovern sparked a new round
of Senate criticism of the Nixon
administration's Vietnam policy
with his report on a 10-hour pri-
vate meeting he had with North
Vietnamese and Viet Cong nego-
tiators in the French capital.
"So long as we cling to our mili-
tary policy of maximum pressure
and our political embrace of Gen-
eral Thieu," McGovern told the
Senate, "the negotiations in Paris +
are a sham and a delusion."
McGovern discussed the May 23
talks in Paris, which he said were :
conducted with the approval of
the State Department and chiefj
U.S. negotiator Henry C a b o t
Lodge, and told reporters at a pre-
speech briefing "It fortified the
views I have held previously."
Secretary of State William P.
Rogers, who was asked about Mc-
Govern's speech before it was de-
livered, declined comment on
ground he had not heard it.
Leading war critics, such as
Chairman J. W. Fulbright (D-
Ark.), of the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee, and Sen. Frank#
Church (D-Idaho), rose to praise
McGovern and to protest lack of
progress toward peace by the ad-
In addition, Fulbright, in two
Senate speeches and in talking to
newsmen, denounced as "especial-
ly offensive" a speech Tuesday
night in which Vice President
Spiro T. Agnew lumped Senate
criticism and former Johnson ad-
ministration aides among those
whose "sincere opposition is un-
dermining our negotiations f-o r
peace and prolonging the war."
"It comes from one with so lit-
tle background and so little know-
ledge of what he is talking about,"'
On the Senate floor, Fulbright
suggested 'that since President
Nixon's war policy seems to be the
same as former President Lyndon
B. Johnson's and candidate Nixon
criticized that policy, the Presi-
dent himself "could be classed as
a critic of Nixon's war policy." K

ISRAELI AND EGYPTIAN JETS battled over the Gulf of
Suez yesterday, hours after Israeli commandos raided three Egyp-
tian shore installations.
Both sides also traded heavy artillery fire along the Suez Canal.
Israeli military sources claimed four Soviet-made MIGs were de-
stroyed in the dogfight, and Egypt claimed two Israeli Mirage Jets
were downed. Neither side admitted any losses, however.
Israel now reports that 25 Egyptian aircraft have been destroyed
since the 1967 war, including seven in the last 10 days.

THE SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE approv-
ed yesterday a resolution that could be a step toward recognition
of Communist China.
The measure would express the sense of the Senate that United
States recognition of a foreign government and an exchange of dip-
lomatic representatives "does not imply that the United States nec-
essarily approves of the form, ideology, or policy of that government."
The resolution, which now goes to the Senate for consideration
was introduced by Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) with Sen. George
Aiken (R-Vt.) as a co-sponsor.
THE SOVIET .UNION plans to launch an unmanned moon
probe July 10 that will attempt to scoop up a sample of moon soil
and return it to earth, Moscow Communist sources said yesterday.
If successful, the experiment would precede by six days the Amer-
ican Apollo 11 shot designed to land two men on the moon.
The sources, who have contacts inside the Soviet space program,
said the July 10 launch would be the third attempt to carry out the
The first shot reportedly blew up on the launching pad in early
April, and the second exploded in flight last month, according to the
sources. Neither have been reported by Soviet authorities.
PICKETS CONTINUED TO MARCH at the Charleston Coun-
ty Hospital yesterday as about 100 former strikers returned to
their jobs at the Medical University of South Carolina Hospital.
Civil rights leaders and county officials failed to reach an agree-

tered its 14th week.
Progress in the talks has bogged down over the issue of rehiring
all 69 workers who remain on strike. The Charleston County Council
