Commission charged yesterday that a
staff member, Ray Chauncey, was
beaten by a city policeman Friday night
after Chauncey was arrested for alleged
disorderly conduct while making an
HRC investigation at a local bar.
HRC director David Cowley explained
that it will be up to Chauncey and his
attorney whether or not to bring charges
against the policeman. However, it ap-

TUITION HIKE? , 4 ,-e. 5.
By SHARON WEINER and JUDY KAHN
The Advisory Committee on Recreation, Intramurals and
Club Sports is planning to send an interim report to the
Regents sometime this summer--probably without advising
the Regents to hold a student referendum on the funding of
the proposed facilities.
The funding is likely to involve an increase in student
tuition, which has caused major student organizations to
demand that student opinion be determined before any
assessment is made.
Opponents of a tuition assessment without a referendum
include Student Government Council, Inter-House Assembly,
" Interfraternity Council and
the Tenants' Union.
Many of the groups fear funding

the summer without student con-

President Nixon plans a
report to the nation tomorrow
night "on the prospects of
peace in Vietnam."
Presidential -p r e s s secretary
Ronald L. Ziegler said yesterday,
"The address will be a major ad-
dress which can be characterized
as a report to the American peo-
ple on the President's views as to
prospects of peace in Vietnam."
However, Nixon is not likely to
announce any major breakthrough
or troop withdrawal.
He is expected to ask for con-
tinued public patience while he
attempts to put an end to the war.
It will be the President's first
major speech on Vietnam since he
took office. No time has yet been
announced for the half-hour re-
port which will be available for
live television and radio broadcast.
In Vietnam enemy gunners and
terrorists struck in and around
Saigon overnight, but the allies
reported last night that attacks
nationwide dropped sharply from
the surge of the night before.
A U.S. spokesman said the total
for today undoubtedly would rise
as additional reports come in, but
not to scale of the day before.
The military commands put no
label on yesterday's sudden out-
burst. Speculation ranged from a
prelude to another offensive to
"just a busy night" A government
spokesman earlier called it an
attempt to influence the Paris
peace talks and U.S. public opin-
Along with the White House an-
nouncement of the speech came

ferred at length yesterday with the
U.S. military commander in Viet-
nam, Gen. Creighton Abrams, who

paced two-day round of consulta-

morning in talks with Abrams,
Secretary of Defense Melvin R..
Laird, Gen. Earle G. Wheeler,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, and Dr. Henry A. Kissinger,
Nixon's special adviser on national
The President's talk w i t h
Abrams was described as a general
review and not a special discussion
of possible troop withdrawals.
Ziegler emphasized that any de-
cision on troop withdrawal will be
made on the basis of these three
criteria, previously set forth by
-"The ability of the South
Vietnamese to defend themselves
in the areas we are now defending
-"The progress of the Paris
-"The level of enemy activity."
The flurry of presidential ac-
tion concerning Vietnam' comes at
a time when the Viet Cong have
set forth a 10-point program for
achievinga peace settlement.
Seciretary of State William P.
Rogers, on his way to Saigon to
discuss the Viet Cong's new 10-
point peace plan, warned yester-
day that the enemy's latest ter-
rorist attacks against civilians in
Saigon are endangering peace
"The indiscriminate and sense-
less killing and wounding of civil-
ians in their homes and in the
streets can only raise questions,
about the intentions of the other
side with respect to peace," Rogers
said during a refueling stop in Los

a man had been shot in the hall-
way at the headquarters, but this
also proved to be false.

Millihen: New Left
MT. PLEASANT (A--Leftist students rallying under the
banner of social justice are a greater threat to academic
freedom than the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy's anticommunist
crusades of the 1950's, Gov. William Milliken said yesterday.
"America's universities today are facing the greatest
danger they have faced in our country's history-a far more
threatening danger, I believe, than they faced during the
McCarthy era," the governor said.
He made the statement in remarks prepared for delivery
at the inauguration of Dr. William B. Boyd as president of
-Central Michigan University.
"The radical right forces of the
early fifties tried desperately, and
'9 . often successfully, to limit the
free expression of ideas in the
country's classrooms. They did it
in the name of anticommunism
and, now, a small minority of the
' radical left forces are endangering
academic freedom in the name of
social justice," Milliken said.
At troubled City College of New
York, a new acting president took
over. Joseph J. Copeland, yester-
day said "police will stay on the
campus as long as they are
All outsiders will be barred from

City Council last night approved the Model Cities work
program and personnel requirements and accepted the budget
for 1969-70 submitted by City Administrator Guy Larcom Jr.
The major re-allocation in Larcom's budget involves
transferring an additional $100,000 to the Transportation
Authority, thus bringing the total allotment to more than
$200,000 for expanded bus service.
The approved budget also adds $25,000 to the city clerk's
budget for the hiring of a voter registrar and a deputy clerk.
