It was the second time in
the three-year-old conference
that Nixon has violated a simi-
lar undertaking, Thuy asserted,
and added: "If Mr. Nixon cannot
keep such a solemn promise,
then what credibility will his
other statements have?"
Both the Communist speakers'
said the Viet Cong plan was the
only reasonable peace proposal
on the conference table. Their
comments left little doubt that the
Nixon plan was unacceptable. It
calls for a U.S. withdrawal after
a 'peace agreement is reached and
new elections in South Vietnam
in return for the release of Ameri-
can war prisoners.

last sumnmer after North Vietna-
mese negotiators presented a
nine-point war-settlement plan,
one point of which called for rep-
arations to North Vietnam.
Kissinger, who met secretly in
Paris with Hanoi envoys, told a
news conference Wednesday that
the United States felt it could not
in honor agree to a peace settle-
ment which includes reparations.
Payment of reparations, in the
U.S. view, would imply an admis-

Throughout her speech Davis
emphasized that her daughter is
presently being denied her basic

said, the judge refuses to grant

Instead, the trial has been
transplanted to Santa Clara coun-

wealthy or middle class area
which is only 2 per cent black."
In that county, Davis said, over
$500,000 is being spent for spe-
cial security measures for the
Davis feels that the effect of
these preparations is to "continue
the assumption that Angela is
guilty and a dangerous criminal

Davis also protested that the
tiny courtroom's facilities would
not allow for the necessary open
and public trial.
However she cited real im-
provement in her daughters phys-
ical condition and care, following
petitions and telegrams to the
California attorney general ex-
pressing anger and concern over
Angela's deteriorating health.
Davis called this proof of the
"power of the people."
"I'm getting assurances every-
where I go that our demands will

"It will be a long fight but I see

were an ordinary bang-bang
movie like, say Experiment in
Terror, it would end no doubt in
Kezar Stadium when Harry bags
his man on the 40-yard line.
His job seems done, and the
camera pulls way back into the
sky inviting the final credits.
Scorpio is now a matter for the
courts. Justice has evidently tri-
But when the villain is sprung
loose on a technicality subvert-
ing Harry's successful manhunt,
the film keeps on rolling and the
bridle that reins Harry in keeps
on slipping. Under the circum-
stances it's no wonder that
middle-class liberals like you
and me find ourselves siding
with Harry against our fellow
bourgeois in the System. By his
limp, and sa'tanic grin, as well as
by his moniker, Scorpio (played
menacingly by Andy Robinson)
symbolizes the forces of dark-
ness, and his ecstasy in sense-
less evil transforms the film
into a kind of horror show. Still,
pacifying the killer as the Mayor
tries to do, does seem the logi-
cal thing, the thing most of us
would do in a similar situation.
So it's a further testament to
the film that when the District
Attorney tells Harry how the
cop violated Scorpio's rights, and
Harry counters with, "Well I'm
all broken up about that man's
rights," we feel ourselves tugged
away from rationality.
We'd react differently, I think
if Harry were a paladin in the
great Genteel Tradition, follow-
ing the dominant mores and
merely excelling at his murder-
ous craft. Then, in truth, the
film would be fascistic as
charged. But as Western hero
personalizing his battle with the
sniper and going outside the
System for retribution, Harry is
no black-shirted enforcer; skirt-
ing the grand radical contradic-
tion. he doesn't kill in the name
of peace. While that doesn't
make his actions any less despic-
able when seen in the clear light
of reason, emotionally he does
become perversely appealing by
embodying a dark, pre-social
dream. Man the Avenger, un-
shackled by rules.
laying of f your liberalism
against this more primal in-
stinct, Dirty Harry will probably
muddle your traditional re-
sponses to law and order. It
would be nice, that little lib-
eral voice tells us, if Scorpio
could be nabbed by someone like
Rodriguez, Harry's young Mexi-
can-American partners with a
bachelor's degree in sociology.
(Actually the film's manipula-
tive soft-spot is precisely this
point: Why can't the System
get Scorpio despite Harry's le-
gal transgressions in apprehend-
ing him?) But Rodriguez decides
to hang up his holster for a
teaching position, and we're left
sitting there with no alternative
except cheering Harry on.
Against the modern maniacal
killer, the sheriff is our only
hope. Which, when you come
right down to it, is the real sad-
ness of the thing.

In other action, the committee
voted unanimously against insti-
tuting creating housing with lim-
ited visitation policies for students
unless they specifically request it.
The decision came after ap-
proximately 100 residents of
Stockwell and West Quad appeared
to protest the use of areas in their
dorms for this purpose.
The new policy would have re-
quired residents who had chosen
to live in these areas to receive
visitors of the opposite sex be-
tween 7 and 12 p.m. Friday and
Saturday, and 1 to 5 Sunday.
Vice-President of Student Serv-
ices, Robert Knauss urged the pas-
sage of the new housing measure,
due to the request of students, the
Regents, and parents. He cited a
questionnaire which 108 students
returned to the Housing Office in-
dicating they would occupy such
Committee member Ronald Beck
moved to dismiss the issue until
a substantial number of students
approached the committee to re-
quest such housing, agreeing to oc-
cupy it. The motion and its ap-
proval were met with cheers from

At $99.50, we don't suggest that the Dual 1215 is
a low-cost turntable. But it is the least you can pay
if you insist on the same precision engineering and
reliable operation that hi-fi professionals must have.
The low-mass tonearm tracks flawlessly at as low
as gram, and gets the most out of high compli-
Among the 1215's many features are: vernier-adjust
counterbalance, synchronized tracking force and
anti-skating, pitch-control, feathertouch cueing, hi-
torque constant-speed motor and 33/4 lb. platter.
As with all Duals, a single master switch controls
all single play and changer operations in both auto-
matic and manual modes. And the interchangeable
multiple-play spindle holds up to six records.
