NEW YORK (A'-CBS reported yesterday that planned air
strikes against Hanoi and Haiphong during the past five days
were called off because of "flagrant security leaks in Washington."
The Columbia Broadcasting System network report by Murray
Fromson from Saigon said speculation is that the leaks came
either from government sources-a trial balloon-or from "doves"
in Congress who don't want the air war expanded.
Fromson also reported that a "high-powered public relations
effort" had been planned to tell the administration's side of the
story after the raids were carried out. Officers around the world
had been alerted, he said, to explain the reasons for the air
This effort, Fromson said, "has now been destroyed" by the
Washington leaks. The CBS report also said American pilots are
"enraged" by stories in print which would have endangered their
lives and success of the raids if they had been carried out.

this summer must register them, Tom Brown of the Student Auto-

are unaware of the regulation because in previous summers it has
not been necessary. The rule, in force during the winter and fall
semesters, requires students to go to 113 Student Affairs Building,
where they will receive parking stickers for their cars. Students
taking four hours of credit or more must pay $1 for their sticker.

Brown also said that with these stickers students can park

bounded by Thompson St., Madison St. and Packard Road.
ROBERT GOYER, GRAD, has been named as student repre-
sentative for the Northwood IV building committee. Goyer, of the
Graduate Student Council building committee, was a member of
the vice-presidential student housing advisory committee that
drew up the project statement for the new Northwood married
student housing project.
Students have sat on building committees working on the
construction of Oxford Suites and Mary Markley Hall, but never
before have they assumed such a major role as the committee
has in the preplanning of the type of housing they will live in at
Due to the committee's sugestions, the low-cost Northwood
units, to be completed by summer, '67, will offer more quiet and
privacy than former University-owned married housing has.
Some of the 400 apartments in the project will also offer more
bedrooms than previous apartments have, with some of the units

The agenda is expected to contain a decision on Michigan

mended that the present' three year programs in Biological

expanded to four year programs soon. The committee also rer,-
ommended that the branch be made independent in the neat'

The Master Plan for education in the state of Michigan, the

expected to be discussed.

Dist. Atty. William Frye called

In line with the recommenda-
tions of last November's report by
the President's Blue-Ribbon Com-
mission on Off-Campus Housing,
the Regents have approved Vice-
President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler's recommenda-
tion to appoint his former assist-
ant, John C. Feldkamp, to the
position of director of a new Uni-
versity housing office.
The Commission had suggested
the new post be created to co-
ordinate all aspects of student
housing: residence halls, married
student housing, affiliated hous-
ing and off-campus housing. It's
a reoort had called for introducing
American actors whom he claims
are much harder to direct than the
Greeks. Greek actors apparently
are less inhibited and will easily
scream and rant resonantly as did
the ancient Greeks. Americans are
apparently more restrained; never-
theless, they have become quite
proficient, according to Solomos.
The tragic trilogy ends with
reconciliation and triumph of jus-
tice. The fates take their course
and all ends justly.
Last evening at 'the Ypsilanti
Greek Theatre, there was some-
thing more than humidity in the
air. The Greeks call it justice, the
Muses have chanted "fate" while
the more restrained Americans ap-
plauded it last evening as success.

port made no recommendations
