Two-gunmen theory questioned
NEW YORK (Reuter)-Acoustics experts may have been
using the wrong tape recording when they revived the theory
that two gunmen shot at President John Kennedy the day he
was assassinated in Dallas, CBS News said yesterday.
The acoustics experts told the House Assassination Com-
mittee last week that an analysis of the recording they
believe came from the motorcylcle radio of officer H.B. Mc-
Clain established that shots were fired at President Kennedy
from two different directions.
IT WAS ON the basis of this evidence that the committee
said it believed there had probably been a conspiracy in Ken-
But McClain, interviewed on CBS, said he does not think
the recording came from his motorcycle which was part of
the escort for the presidential motorcade through Dallas ,on
November 22, 1963, because he could not hear a siren.
"It wasn't mine," McClain, now retired, said after
hearing the tape for the first time. "If it had been stuck
(open) then there would have been a siren on it all the way t
the hospital." .

Repub heads county board
Richard Walterhouse (R-Ann Arbor)
was elected chairman of the
Washtenaw County Board of Com-
missioners Wednesday night in another
power tussle between members of the

unanimous vote of the 14 com-
missioners. Catherine McClary (D-Ann
Arbor). McClary and her sole suppor-
ter, Commissioner Meri Lou Murray
(D-Ann Arbor), conceded their votes to
LATER IN the board meeting, Com-.
missioner Willis Israel (D-Ypsilanti),
was elected vice chairman over Mc-
Clary by a 10 to 4 vote.
McClary 'expressed disappointment
over the election results, and said that
deals had been struck between some
Democratic and Republican board
members. In exchange for
Walterhouse's Democratic support, ac-
cording to McClary, Republican Com-
missioners rewarded Democrats with
key county board seats, including vice
chair of the Board of Commissioners.
The Board of Commissioners has had
a history of rifts splitting the Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti Democrats. Wednesday's
board election, however, is one of the
few times members of a majority party
have aided a minority party member to
gain the board chair.
Fleming, Jenkins speak
On the afternoon of Sunday, Dec. 17,
both University President Robben
Fleming and Roy Jenkins, president of
the. Commission of the European Com-
munities, gave general overviews of the
state of their organizations.
Fleming, in his last commencement
address (reprinted on today's editorial
page), gave his assessment of the goals
of administrators of American univer-
sities in the form of five fundamental
principles. The University should be: a
"free market-place for ideas"; a
"humanizing influence"; an institution
in which fair, open decisions are made;
an organization in which mediocrity is
avoided by setting priorities; and,
finally, a non-discriminatory employer
Jenkins spoke of the common in-
terests between the U.S. and the
"The European image of America no
longer vacillates between supercilidbs
disdain and frustrating envy," sgid
Jenkins, "and the more equal the par-
tnership between the United States and
the uniting states of Europe, the bettier"
for both, and the longer it will endure..'

proved November 24 by the United
States Comptroller of the Currency 4f-
ter a lengthy period of objections by
local bankers, according to Michigan

Norton said plans for Michigan
National branch offices in the area ate
not yet complete.
