CALLS FOR TROOP
By JUDY SARASOHN
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny lashed out yester-
day against the Human Relations Commission for charging
that a policeman beat HRC staff member Ray Chauncey
after his arrest while on assignment last Friday night.
Krasny refused to reveal the findings of a police investi-
gation of the ,incident and said he would not be "intimidated
by statements made to the press."
HRC Director David Cowley' said Chauncey was "mis-
takenly arrested while on a legitimate assignment" and then

MUTU.AL PIULL - OUT
WASHINGTON (--President Nixon "proposed last night
that American and North Vietnamese troops stop fighting in
South Vietnam after a gradual, 12-month withdrawal of
most of their forces.
Staking his political future ion his quest for peace, Nixon
recalled a campaign pledge to end the war with honor, and
he told the nation, "If I fail to do so, I expect the American
people to hold me accountable for that failure."
The chief executive outlined what he termed new in-
itiatives for peace in a majorpolicy address carried live from
the White House by radio and television.
As a first step, he proposed that as soon as formal agree-
ment or credible understanding can be reached, there should
begin a mutual withdrawal
from South Vietnam of major
Americans, U.S. allies, and
. This would continue by agreed-
upon stages over a period of ato speech
