There was an airplane in the middle of
State Street yesterday. And there were people
everywhere-listening to the band on South
University, looking at paintings on East Liber-
ty, buying antiques on North University.
The Ann Arbor Street Fair is back again,
and for the next three days it will be bringing
a smattering of life, color and creativity to the
town's summer lethargy.
This year's street fair-unlike any other-has
become more than anything else a meeting
ground for street people, middleclass people
looking for bargain cultfure and sales at the
-local stores, and, of course, the police.
The airplane was on display on State Street,
and people stopped to look in it. Kids and streeet
people played with balloons, and everyone ate
ice cream to fight the heat.
A stand was set up at the corner of East
University and South University, and local
theatre and musical groups entertained the
crowds all during the fair.
At the antique tent, many customers brows-
ed. But what they found was, as one spectatgr
put it, a melange of over-priced goods without
much real quality.
The greatest attraction of the fair for many
- outside of staring at the hippies, of course,

-- were demonstrations and displays by artists
who used all kinds of media.
People milled around Charles Haubrich as
he cautiously welded metal to make models of
old cars, airplanes and coaches.
Others were fascinated by George Kafka's
carefully balanced mobiles. The air plays with
golf balls while they balance precariously on a
metal pedestal. Viewers wait for the balls to
topple -- but they never do.
Thomas Hibben's fountains also entranced the
crowd. His copper fountains are made of small
fish which magically appear to swim in the
Small stalls lined South and North University,
most selling little objets* d'art. But their cost
was often staggering and many careful shop-
pers resorted to price comparing to combat
the overpricing rampant everywhere.
The street people --along with the 300 in-
vited artists - had their stands too, in front
of the shops of friendly merchants and right
on the street. They sold all kinds of things,
from incense and hats to fur rugs.
On State Street and Main Street, the fair
took the form of a gigantic bargain sale, and
the streets were jammed with shoppers..
The fair is here until Sunday, and don't worryY.
about missing it. You can't. It's everywhere.

ccept truce
in Honduras
By The Associated Press
Honduras and El Salvador accepted a cease-fire last
night proposed by a peace committee of the Organization of
American States, but each nation insisted on conditions.
The two Central American nations began fighting three
days ago.
A spokesman for El Salvador's Foreign Ministry said his
government demanded assurances that persecution of Sal-
vadorean citizens in Honduras would stop and that the situa-
tion would return to that pertaining before fighting broke out.j
He said the cease-fire would go into effect as soon as
Honduras stopped hostilities and the OAS committee accepted
El Salvador's conditions.

cluded public hearings after(
taking testimony from a num-
ber of educators, including
Dean Wilbur Cohen of the{
education school.,
Cohen emphasized the magni-

"By the end of the decade of the
seventies," he predicted, "educa-

are more likely to be double those
today than be 50 per cent larger."

Cohen warned, the state will lose
some of its future economic po-

California-current leaders in edu-

' Cohen suggested elimination of
the property tax as a means of
financing education.
He urged shifting Tresponsibility'
for all industrial and public utility
taxation to the states instead,

efactor from increased education.

The executive committee of the education school has
unanimously agreed to seat two non-voting student repre-
sentatives on the committee.
The committee's decision was announced yesterday in the
minutes of last week's meeting.
The action makes the education school the first Univer-
sity college' or school to allow student representation on Its
top decision-making body.

dent representation on its executive committee last winter,
is presently the only literary a- ------- - -

R. Resor announced yester-
day a suspension of the use of
poisonous gases in defensive
training at Ft. McClellan, Ala.
He confirmed also that open
air . testing of lethal chemical
agents has been suspended at
Edgewood Arsenal, Md. That ac-
tion was disclosed Tuesday by
Rep. Clarence D. Long (D-Md).
The suspension follows con-
siderable congressional criticism
about the Army's use of lethal.
nerve gases in the open at mili-
tary bases.
Resor said that in the meantime
a committee of civilian scientif-
ic experts will be appointed to
review procedures used in t h e
Edgewood tests as well as Ft.
McClellan's trAining program.
A Pentagon spokesman said an
example of the Alabama base's
defensive training with l e t h a 1
agents involved trainees decon-
taminating artillery shells filled
with mustard gas.
The Army recently reported to a
House Government Operations
subcommittee that it was con=
ducting the open air tests at the
Maryland and Alabama facilities
as well as the Dugway Proving
-Ground in Utah, where 5,000 sheep
were accidently killed last year
by nerve gas.
Resor's statement made no men-
tion of the Dugway activities.
The Army said later testing
would continue at Dugway.
"A thorough study was com-
pleted recently concerning t h e
safety procedures at Dugway and
it was concluded that testing could
continue safely," the Army said.
The Army said all other test-

Thirty-five professors from 15 different
departments met last night to discuss the

from Vietnam although they differ on the
basis for this withdrawal.

"The workshop is distinctly different
from the traditional protest action of a

Waggoner. The workshopis not intended
as an end in itself, but as a "vehicle for
further mobilization" and as. an oppor-
tunity to produce concrete plans for future
