WASHINGTON ()-The United States is preparing even bigger
explosions in its underground nuclear testing, still keeping within
the-terms of the limited test ban treaty.
The Atomic Energy Commission disclosed this yesterday in its
annual report, revealing also that the equipment and plans for
swift resumption of atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons are
essentially completed and ready for use if the pact is violated by
any nation.
The treaty prohibits atmospheric, outer space or surface tests
of nuclear devices. It permits underground detonations if there is

Studies have shown that the
geological formations in the high

to off-site communities as read-

vices but to improve the decoupl--
ing techniques. In decoupling, the
device is suspended free of di-
rect, hard contact with the cav-
ern walls. This dampens the trans-
mission -of earth shock to the
surrounding terrain.
Study Concealment
Several objectives are sought
in decoupling, including a reduc-
tion of damaging shock to com-
munities outside the test site and
providing a place for studying
techniques which might be used by
any country for concealing under-
ground testing by reducing or
eliminating the tell-tale seismo-
graphic waves.

WASHINGTON ()-A chorus of
bipartisan support arose yesterday
for swift congressional approval of
a constitutional amendment to
establish procedures for filling
vice-presidential vacancies and in-
suring continuity of presidential
Its volume far exceeded dis-
sents which included the express-
ed fear that the proposed presi-
dential disability procedures might
make possible a coup d'etat to un-
seat an unpopular President.
Foremost among favorable wit-
nesses before a Senate judiciary
subcommittee were Nicholas Katz-
enbach, the newly designated At-
torney General, and Herbert
Brownell, who filled that cabinet
post under President Dwight D.
Public Hearing
Under examination in the public
hearing was an amendment spon-
sored by Sen. Birch Bayh (D-Ind)
and 75 other senators.
Bayh, the subcommittee chair-
man, said after the close of the
one-day hearing that his group
will vote Monday on the amend-
ment. Its approval by subcom-
mittee, parent committee and Sen-
ate is considered a foregone con-
Sen. Roman L. Hruska (R-Neb)
raised the question of a possible
coup d'etat and suggested that
having Congress act "violates the
principle of the separation of
powers" and could result in a
prolonged political row during
which neither President nor Vice-
President could exercise the execu-
tive powers.
While no witness voiced as
strong objections as committee
member Hruska, some suggested
'changes even though they did not
oppose the principles of the
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R-Il),
the Senate minority leader, urged
the subcommittee to consider

a two-thirds majorityt vote by
Congress for confirmation of aI
new vice-president;
-The amendment should re-
quire that the vice-presidential
nominee be chosen from the ranks
of the cabinet or Congress;
-The President should be for-
bidden to nominate a new vice-
president from his home state.

A statement issued through a

the matter.

Director Cites
Cost Factors
In Construction
The interaction of labor, supply
and demand is the primary factor
affecting construction costs at the
University according to James
Brinkerhoff, director of the plant
extension department.
The cost of housing facilities for
students, he explained, changes
with the degree of luxury and
spaciousness that students request
and not necessarily with the land
space to be used.
Contract Volume
An important consideration this
year in construction costs is the
sheer volume of contracts to be
awarded by the University and
private industrial firms, he added.
Brinkerhoff explained that the
greater the amount of construc-
tion available to$ construction
firms, the higher the costs.
The unavailabiltiy of labor plays
an indirect part in establishing
building costs. The contractor has
to assure a sufficient amount of
skilled labor to complete the job,
and many times this includes
overtime payments, Brinkerhoff
said. When skilled laborers request
an increase in wage rates or extra
benefits, the contract prices for
construction will be affected, he
Strikes in general primarily af-
fect the work schedule, but the

changes in costs. Summarizing the
labor factor, mBrinkerhoff said that

this appears in the construction
Automotive Influence
The automotive industry has a
further, impact on changes in con-
struction costs. If business is good,
more capital will be reinvested in
brick mortar buildings in this
area by the companies, Brinker-
hoff explained. The big three auto
firms have an extensive construc-
tion program in southeastern
Michigan, he said.
Thegaffect ofthis industry is
limited however, because for every
dollar that goes into construction,

Escort Service
For 'U'Oen
Prompted by the recent assaults
on University coeds near the cam-
pus area, two men's residence
halls have established a service
to escort girls from the main
campus to their dorms at night.
Since the beginning of the term
there have been four reports of
assault with intent to rape in
Ann Arbor. The four victims are
presently enrolled at the Univer-
An Ann Arbor police official
said all of the assaults took place
in the general vicinity of the
North State St. and Huron St. in-
tersection. Two were on North
State, one on Huron and one on
Ann St. All of the attacks oc-
curred between 7 and 8 p.m.
Same Man
Details from the reports indicate
all of the assaults were made by
the same man. He is -reportedly

a Negro in his late 30's.
The police official said due to
the length of time between the
assault and the report, from 30
minutes to an hour, the police had
very little chance to apprehend
the man. He said the Ann Arbor
police are on the lookout for a
man fitting the description.
John Bingley, director of stu-
dent affairs and organizations,
said Sanford Security officers
were cooperating fully with the
city in the case.

According to N. Edd Miller, assistant to the vice-president for
