PRESIDENT NIXON is expected to instruct his Paris envoys
to determine whether the Viet Cong's 10-point peace plan proposed
at Thursday's session is a propaganda gimmick or a sign of
serious bargaining.
Secretary of State William P. Rogers said there are "some clearly
unacceptable proposals, but there are elements in it which may offer
a possibility for exploration,"
Rogers did not specify what parts of the NLF offer were "clearly
The 10-points, proposed by Tran Buu Kiem, amount to a com-
bination of elements in the four and five point plans standard in
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong diplomatic presentations.

PRESIDENT NIXON informed Congress that he directed
Attorney General John Mitchell to send Justice Department
officials to Charleston, S.C. to observe developments in the two
month hospital workers' strike.
This move came as a result of urgings from 20 Congressmen that
Mr. Nixon send a representative to Charleston, "so that those who
feel they have no stake in our society will know the President stands
with them."
Approximately 400 nonprofessional workers are on strike against
two Charleston hospitals, where officials have refused to negotiate with
the local Hospital and Nursing Home Workers Union.
showing little enthusiasm over a move to repeal recently approved
pay raise for Congress, federal judges, and top government
The raises became effective last March under a law which made
them automatic unless vetoed by the Senate or House. There is now
a petition in the House that could force a roll call-vote on a bill to
cancel out the $12,000 Congressional pay hike.
The petition, which has been in circulation two weeks, needs
218 signatures. At last count 18 members had signed.
Rep. Gene Snyder (R-Ky), who is sponsoring the petition, said
yesterday he has. no illusions about obtaining the additional 200
signatures. "We're not going to get too many," he said, "unless the
mail from back home gets a lot heavier."
In the unlikely event that Snyder's move succeeds, the pay raise
repealer still would have to be passed by the Senate, which has already
rejected one resolution to veto the pay increases.
GEORGES POMPIDEU, French presidential candidate, and
former premier under De Gaulle, promised a change in the style
and politics of the French presidency.
Pompideu's further straying from De Gaulle policies was noted
after a public opinion poll had him running even with interim Presi-
dent Alain Poher, the Senate president and provisional chief executive.
The polls are particularly revealing because Poher, an unknown
until last week, has yet to declare himself a candidate for president.
Sources close to Poher say that he will probably announce his
candidacy Monday.

U.S. AGREEMENT WITH SPAIN on the maintenance of
military bases in that country appears to be blocked.
Most observers feel that senatorial challenges on the wdrth of the
bases have irritated Madrid, and Francisco Franco's government is
simply refusing to talk at present.....
When negotiations for a renewed agreement were begun last
year under the Johnson administration, Spain sought to substitute
a bilateral defense treaty for earlier agreements, but this reportedly
was vetoed by then Secretary of State Dean Rusk on the grounds that
the Senate would never approve such a pact by the required two-thirds
Under an agreement first entered into in 1953, the United States
maintains three air bases and a naval base in Spain. They have cost
the U.S. about $500 million thus far in construction expenses and
accompanying military aid to Spain.
The latest renewal expired last Sept. 26. The latest Spanish price'!
tag on a five-year renewal agreement is $300 million. The United
States reportedly countered this with an offer of $175 million,.

Before the April elections,
Ann Arbor traffic administra-
tors had been waging a war
against drivers who use un-
metered streets for gratis all
day parking. The city's prime
weapon had been the installa-
tion of several hundred new
short-term parking meters to
increase the turnover of cars
every day in the most popular,
But the new City Council at
its April 21 meeting passed a
resolution which called for a
moratorium on the installation
of new meters until Council
could study the entire parking
system more thoroughly.
At the same meeting Mayor
Robert Harris selected a three-
man ad hoc committee to study
the issue and make a report to
Council. The mayor appointed
Robert Faber (D-2nd Ward),
sponsor of the motion, chair-
man and selected Nicholas
Kazarinoff (D-3rd Ward) and

plans p
Roy Weber (R-4th Ward) to
assist him.
Faber says the primary rea-
son for the moratorium was "to
ascertain the real need for the
turnover" and the availability
of "adequate car storage space"
elsewhere. "It was not clear in
my mind what all the facts
were," Faber explains.
The committee met Tuesday
with Operations Supervisor Rob-
ert Hartwell who indicated
Wednesday he hopes "the mora-
torium will be over soon."
"Chances are most meters
which have been held up will be
installed," Faber says. The com-
mittee expects to present a re-
port to Council Monday, he
"Our study does not preclude
further studies," Faber explains.
He says council may look into
the types of parking meters in-
stalled and the on- as well off-
street parking spaces.
Hartwell said the city would
like to put up about 200 more

arkeing study

one- or two-hour meters. About
100 of these will be on Monroe,
Tappan, E. University, and
Church Streets. The others will
be on Ann, Catherine, Thayer,
and Ingalls.
Meters, rather than signs spe-
cifying hour regulations are
being installed because they are
easier to police, Hartwell ex-
plains. With meters a policeman
only needs to go by the cars
once and look for the violation
flags. With signs, however, he
must first mark the cars with
cialk, then recheck the tires
two or four hours later to see
if the cars have been parked too
long. Hartwell said it is "next
to impossible" to use this
method effectively.
Faber initially asked Council
at its April 14 meeting to halt
the remaining installations un-
til a report could be made to
Council indicating the "econ-
omics of the parking system";
"the alternative parking solu-
tion for those traditional park-

ing spaces would be usurped by
new p a r k i n g meters": and
"whatever other information is
considered pertinent and im-
portant to the problem."
City Administrator Guy Lar-
coin presented a report to Coun-
cil April 21 which stated the
basic reason for installing the
meters "is to control parking
turnover, or the number of
vehicles that use a space in a
given period of time."
The report added that the
use of meters "does not measur-
ably change the overall number
of spaces available, however it
does make the spaces available
to more vehicles."
The revenue from the meters
is used "for additional off-street
parking facilities," the report
The expansion is expected to
bring an additional revenue of
of $100,000 or the 10 per cent
of the total system revenue for
1969-70, the report stated.

revaluation o
German mark,
BONN (M - Chancellor Kurt George Kiesinger ruled out
an upward revaluation of the West German mark yesterday.
Kiesinger reached his decision in a four-hour emergency
Cabinet meeting in which his coalition partners, the Social
Democrats of Foreign Minister Willy Brandt, pressed for rais-
ing the value of the mark from its present level of 2514 cents.
Kiesinger, a Christian Democrat, had been under pressure
from German farm, industrial and business leaders not to put
them at a disadvantage'in their trade abroad by making their
products more expensive.
The Social Democrats contended the mark was underval-
ued because West German ex- -
ports exceed imports. Huberissues
