news today
by The Associated Press and College Press Service
THE COST OF LIVING rose another six-tenths of one per
cent, the government reported yesterday.
The hike is a continuation of the swiftest rise in living costs in
18 years, exceeded only by price hikes in the World War I and Korean
War eras.
The Labor department said the April increases mean that last
month it took $12.64 last month to buy the same typical family
purchases that cost $10 ten years ago.
FURIOUS FIGHTING last week sent U.S. battle deaths to
the second highest level of the year and more than double those
of the previous week. South Vietnamese and enemy losses were
also heavy.
The U.S. Command said 430 Americans were killed and 2,185
wounded last week compared with 184 killed and 1,226 wounded the
week before.
The Command also reported 5,686 enemy troops were killed last
week compared with 3,095 the previous week. This sent enemy battle
deaths to 500,509 since the United States entered the War.

THE UNITED STATES said yesterday "a basis now exists for
productive discussions of key issues" and the negotiators at the
Paris peace talks opened debate on opposing plans.
Later, however, both sides acknowledge they were unable to make
After the 18th full-scale session of talks which lasted more than
four hours, Xuan Thuy, North Vietnam's chief negotiator said "Today
the conference made no progress at all."
U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge said evidence of the other
sides desire to negotiate is "rather obscure."
Tran Buu Klem, the chief delegate of the Viet Cong's National
Liberation Front, accused the United States of rejecting "the most
essential and fundamental points" in their 10-point plan. He in-
dicated he would refuse to talk about any questions as long as the
United States stuck to demands for a mutual troop withdrawal
and opposed a coalition.

an investigation to determine the legitimacy of rising car prices.
The investigation will determine whether car makers and dealers
are raising prices through gimmickry while telling buyers they are
getting "the best deals ever."
Hearings hve been scheduled for Sept. 16-17 to give consumers
and representatives of the auto industry a chance to air their views.
The FTC said manufacturers and dealers may have misled
customers through deleting some equipment and redesignating once
standard equipment as optional and through illusory advertising.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS in Maracaibo, Venezuela battled
police yesterday for the second straight day.
Nearly 2,000 students working in roving bands threw stones
at 800 police and national guardsmen and set fire to cars with gas-
oline bombs.
The demonstrations have been an outgrowth of students' de-
mands for academic and administrative improvements at th Uni-
versity of Merida. At least 20 pupils have been injured so far.

CANADA announced yesterday that military deserters from
the United States and elsewhere would be treated like other
would-be immigrant.
Immigration Minister Allan MacEachen told the Commons: "If
a serviceman from another country meets our immigration criteria he
will not be turned down because he is still in the active service of
his country."
MacEachen said in the past 15 months 72 Americans were allowed
to stay in Canada, 27 more were being processed and seven applicants
had decided to return to the United States.

Students work against racism

Some students like to do
something to solve the problems
they study.
Such a group is Students
Organized Against Racis m
(SOAR), a 25-member organi-
zation formed last November.
SOAR is an outgrowth of a
special problems in psychology
class designed to "make stu-
dents aware of what psychol-
ogy has to say-or doesnt'
say about racism," says Beryl
Brown, Grad an organizer of
"The class makes students
personally aware of the dynam-
ics of their participation in the
situation," she explains.
Through a student organiza-
tion, Miss Brown believes, both
class members and other stu-
dents interested in SOAR pro-




teachersstrike for

jects can work toward eliminat-
ing white racism. n
SOAR, plans, to expand its
membership extensively in the
coming year. All incoming
freshmen will receive a letter
telling them that "people on
campus are concerned about
In addition, SOAR plans to
present a play on activities day
in September to dramatize the
problems of racism.
The psychology course will be
offered again in the fall and
will expand to eight or nine sec-
tions of 12 to 15 students led by
members of last semester's class.
Only one section with 25 stu-
dents existed then.
Course work will consist of
readings concerning racism and
participation in ,at least one
SOAR project.
Since November SOAR has

organized about 25 "confronta-
tions" on racism which are sim-
ilar to T-groups. The sessions
usually begin with dramatic
presentations or movies followed
by group discussions.
"Latent racist feelings" are
brought into the open and ex-
plored during these discussions,"
says SOAR member Carol Hol-
A variety of students have
participated in the confronta-
tions including members of the
Residential College and the Pilot
Program and students in dormi-
tories, fraternities, sororities,
psychology 101 sections and psy-
chology and sociology courses in
the education school.
SOAR also has formed a com-
mittee to communicate the im-
portance of including racism as
a study topic in existing educa-
tion school courses. Miss Hol-

lenshead says SOAR eventually
would like all graduates of the
education school to have studied
problems of racism because of
its importance to the education
In conjunction with the In-
stitute of Social Research (ISR),
SOAR will conduct a survey to
discover present racial attitudes
at the University. Students,
faculty and staff will be ques-
Some students have complain-
ed that money for the survey
has come from sources desig-.
nated for scholarships, Miss
Hollenshead says. But Dr. Wil-
liam Cash, coordinator of the
Human Resources Program, says
the money for the survey "is not
money earmarked for scholar-

hikes, smaller classes

MOSCOW (A') - An appeal is
circulating privately here which
contends that recent arrests of
dissidents threaten a return to
Stalinist terror and asks the
United Nations to investigate "vi-
olation of basic civil rights" by
Soviet authorities.
So far the appeal has been signed
by 55 Soviet citizens.
Its circulation coincided with a
report from friends of scientist
Ilya Burmistrovich that he was
sentenced Wednesday to three
years in a labor camp on a charge
of spreading lies about the Soviet
He reportedly lent friends copies
of critical writings of Andrei Sin-
yavsky and Yuli Daniel, two sa-
tirists who have been serving
terms in labor camps for more
than a year.

Their trial in 1966 stirred up
protests both here and abroad.
The appeal in circulation pro-
tests the arrest two weeks ago of
the best known Soviet dissenter,
former Maj. Gen. Pyotr Grigory-
enko, and the arrest this week of
a fellow dissident, poet and tech-
er Ilya Gabai.
"These recent arrests force us
to think that Soviet punitive ag-
encies have decided to suppress
once and for all the activity of
people who protest against arbi-
trariness in our country," the ap-
peal said.
"We feel that freedom to have
and distribute independent con-
victions has finally been placed
in jeopardy," the statements adds.
The signers said they were
"deeply indignant over unceasing
political persecutions in the So-
viet Union, perceiving in them a
return to Stalin's, time when all

our country was in the grip of
The appeal listed recent trials
involving intellectuals demanding
free speech and "people seeking
national equality and preserva-
tion oft their national culture ..
Jews demanding the right to
leave for Israel . . . and believers
seeking religious liberty."
Addressing their petition to
the U.N. Commission on Human
'Rights, the signers said: "We ap-
peal to the United Nations because
we have received no' answer to
our protests and complaints which
have been sent fver a number of
years to the highest state and ju-
dicial agencies of the Soviet Un-
The 55 signers included the
most active members of a small
protest movement which has
grown smaller as a result of con-
tinuing arrests and trials.

CHICAGO (0)-Mayor Rich-
ard J. Daley said late last night
that a tentative agreement has
been reached to end the strike
by teachers. against the city
school system.
Daley made the announcement
after six hours of meetings yes-
terday in his offices with nego-,
tiators for the Chicago Teach-
ers Union and the Board of
CHIdAGO (R) - The public
school system of the nation's
second largest city,. with en-
rollments totaling 600,000, was
shut down by the first teach-
ers' strike in its history yes-
Negotiators continued t a 1 k S.
hopeful of an early settlement, but
there was no indication that one
was in the offing. Demands of the
striking Chicago Teachers Union
include a pay raise of $150 a
The Chicago Board of Educa-
tion said 5,331 teachers, or 2.7
per cent of the total, reported at
school buildings and that teacher
attendance was exceptionally high
in schools were enrollments are
largely black.
School Supt. James F. Redmond,
while cancelling classes yesterday
f and today, had asked teachers to
report to school buildings so he
could estimate how many schools
might be reolAned Monday.
The union president, John ,.
Desmond,' described the strike as
80 to 85 per cent effective and
said: "25 per cent of the schools
did not have enough students to
hold classes.
"They could not open classes
Monday with the teachers in the
buildings now."
"If there is an agreement today
or tomorrow," Desmond said, "the
schools no doubt could be opened
A long strike could be trouble-
some for graduating high school
seniors. The school year, including
examination sessions, is scheduled
to end June 27. The seniors need
12 more cfass days to meet the
state's minimum requirement of
176 days for an academic year.
The union's demands for more
money for the 23,000 teachers is
complicated by the system's deficit
for the second half of this year.
The teachers also want a guar-
antee of no layoffs in September
and a limit on class size.
