Top Positions in GSC Voting
Graduate Student Council yesterday elected new officers and
discussed their involvement with the recently proposed course
description booklet.

support in its demand for a price
SGC requested that "this be the
sole extent of student action until
next Wednesday, Jan. 27, thus
giving SGC and Butterfield Thea-
tres one week to reach an accept-
able agreement before further ac-
tion is taken."I
Move Action
However, several student organi-
zations have asked for more action
than SGC proposed Wednesday
night. The Young Democrats,
Voice Political Party and the In-
dependent Socialist Club will form
pickets at the Michigan Theatre
both Friday and Saturday and
pass out leaflets urging patrons
"to remain in the theatre through
the 9 p.m. show."
The three groups are also urg-
ing a boycott of the 9 p.m. show
and a complete boycott of the
State Theatre on both nights.
Graduate Student Council last
night added its support to the
SGC resolution. The council took
the action because it said "the
quality of films presently being
shown in no way justifies the in-
crease in admission prices. GSC

fluence on both prices and qual-

earlier gave their support to SGC.
Students are protesting the re-
cent ticket price increase at the
three Ann Arbor theatres, all own-
ed by Butterfield. No demonstra-
tion has been called at the Cam-
pus Theatre because student lead-
ers feel that its present show of
three movies for the single ad-
mission price is not unfair.
Student leaders have pointed
out that the Regents, with a mi-
nority interest in the Butterfield
chain and two representatives on
the six-man Butterfield board of
lirectors, "can certainly voice their
opinion on the price increase, but
they have failed to do this."
The leaders have urged "the
University to take a stand on this
issue, and to use its power to re-
duce prices to the original level."
Students yesterday were distrib-
uting 350 posters throughout the
men's and women's residence halls
supporting the single night dem-
onstration called for by SGC.
Other students working in the

Churchill Still
Eludes Death
LONDON () - Sir Winston
Churchill's ordeal neared the end
of its first week last night with
no change reported in his des-
perate battle for life.
Lord Moran, Churchill's per-
sonal physician, visited him at
midday and in the evening and
said he could find no change in
the slow but certain weakening of
the 90-year-old statesman felled
by a stroke last Friday.
Medical experts repeated that
Churchill could linger at the same
low ebb for days.

For Commons Seat
LONDON (M-Britain's Foreign Secretary Patrick Gordon Walker
lost his bid for a seat in the House of Commons last night in an
election that shook Prime Minister Harold Wilson's Labor Party
government and sent Conservative hopes soaring.
His defeat in a district that for 30 years had been safe for Labor-
ites reduced Labor's margin in Parliament to three seats. La
The race issue was a factor in the downfall of Gordon Walker, an
integrationist, and British Nazis harassed his campaign trail.

Achieve Political Victory
CAN THO, Viet Nam (Y')-The Communist Viet Cong guerrillas
cannot win a military victory, but they might take over South Viet
Nam by psychological and political means, strongman Lt. Gen.
Nguyen Khanh said yesterday.
"This year the Viet Cong have adopted new tactics," the armed
forces commander told newsmen here. "They are fighting in large
units, up to two regiments, maybe more. In this new phase, they
are using conventional rather than

guerrilla tactics, and they are thus
within our specialty. We have tac-
tical and material superiority in
conventional warfare.

is psychological," he said.
Khanh warned against defeatist

Khanh, military strongman of
SouthViet Nam for the past year,
said that even the danger of the
new Chinese Communist atomic
bomb was more psychological than
military at the moment.
"In Asia, psychological things
are the most important," he said.
"China is our hereditary enemy,
and they are a nation of 700
million while we are only 14 or
15 million. Even if they cannot
yet deliver their atomic bomb, it
worries us."
Referring to his recent diplo-

Vaux Contrasts Archeology and Tradition

The truth is something which has 'been long sought after, and
has been claimed to be found in various sources. The Bible represents
the truth for centuries of Semites. However, what happens when Bib-
lical truths are exposed to the critical eyes of archeologists?
This question with its numerous ramifications was discussed by
Father de Vaux, director of L'Ecole Biblique et Archeologique at
Jerusalem in his lecture at the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation last
Entitled "Biblical Traditions and External Evidence," Father de
Vaux's lecture was one of a series of three Zwerdling Lectures on
"The Hebrew Patriarchs and History."
The Zwerdling Lectures are an annual series provided in memorial
for Osias Zwerdling of Ann Arbor by his three sons, and are presented
by the near eastern language department, the Beth Israel Congrega-

The difficulty with oral traditions lies in the fact that they are
not fixed, but may be added to in various ways. Those traditions
develop through derivations from outside groups, and they are en-'
larged in history as each generation adds its own interpretation.
Poetic forms may also be added to the tradition, he noted.
"Since writing is used to preserve, not to create, writing is the
last stage in the development of a tradition,"
Archeology is the test of Biblical truths, for it provides the ex-
ternal evidence needed to check Biblical traditions.
Although the Bible tells of Joshua's trumpets crumbling the wall
of Jericho, archeologists have dated their findings of the city in the
third millenium before Christ. This is much too early for the Biblical
accounts, and even the nature of the conquest itself is in dispute, for
the warlike Biblical tradition has been confronted with a theory of
peaceful infiltration over a longer period, he said.
