U.S. announces bombing letup,
but continues to pound North

Singles'Europ dvntre

(Continued from Page 1)
Military sources in Saigon said
bombing now was restricted by the
President to targets below the 20th
parallel of latitude, 60 miles south
of Hanoi and Haiphong. Sunday's
raids around those cities are term-
ed "a one-shot deal," at least for
now, by u.S& military sources.
It appeared possible that Wash-
ington's public position might, as
it often has in the past, mask be-
hind the scene moves. One possi-
bility was that without a naked
public threat to resume full-scale
bombing unless Hanoi calls off its
offensive, the North Vietnamese
could do so without losing face.
The'U.S. Command officially de-
clined to comment on the reportdof
sharply curtailed bombing in the
North. It repeated a statement
issued when the bombing there was

resumed April 6 that strikes in the
demilitarized zone and north and
south of it were under way. Laird
said the same thing yesterday.
However, the combination of per-
fect weather and urgent military
targets appeared to support the
report by military sourceshere.
U.S. pilots have had only a limited
chance to hit targets the Saigon
command considers vital to the
North's current offensive. The mere
dozen or so strikes allegedly being
flown currently compare to the
several hundred flown against the
Hanoi and Haiphong areas alone
two days ago.
While action was curtailed in the
North, U.S. bombers stepped up
their attacks against North Viet-
namese positions in South Vietnam,
especially around strategic An Loc,
logging more than 1,000 strikes!

Monday and yesterday in the heav-
iest raids since the peak days of
the air war from 1965 to 1968.
By far the most dramatic
ground action in Indochina was
centered around the temple ruins
of Angkor Wat in Cambodia's
northwest.
North Vietnamese troops swarm-
ed toward a Cambodian relief
column trying to reach a 1,000-
man government force trapped
near the temples. A military
spokesman said the attacks were
"very fierce," and there were in-
dications the relief column now
was surrounded, too.The imperil-
ed government soldiers form part
of a, drive to encircle the Angkor
Wat complex which has been in
North Vietnamese hands for two
years.
Video process
Two representatives of indepen-
dent television, Allen Rucker, of
Ant Farm Collective, and Michael
Shamburg, editor of Radical Soft-
ware, will speak at the Conspiracy
coffeehouse tonight.
The presentations are part of
Independent Video process, a pro-
gram on independent television
programming.

We want you to run away to Europe
with us.
We'll drain our last pint of Guinness
at the Tournament Pub in Earlscourt,
London, hit the road south to the Channel
and be in Calais by sunset.
A month later, we could be in Istanbul.
Or Berlin or Barcelona. Or Athens. Or
Copenhagen. Or just about any place you
and your Australian, English, New Zealand
and South African mates want to be.
On the way, we'll camp under canvas,
cook over open fires, swim, sun and drink
in some of the most spectacular settings on
the continent.
We'll provide a, small zippy European
motorbus and your camping gear and a
young cat to drive it who knows every
wineshop from here to Zagreb, plus how to
ask for a john, or how to find your way
back home to bed, smashed, later on.

You can go for as little as 28 days or
as many as 70. Spring, Summer or Fall.
The cost is ultra reasonable. And
we'll get you to London from here just as
cheaply as is humanly possible.
We've got a booklet that fills in the
details and prices.
If you're single, under 30 and slightly
adventurous, send for it.
We're booking nov&.
Please send me details, itineraries and an application. 0

Anti-war protests set today

A delegation from People Against
the Air War (PAAW) will con-
front President Robben Fleming at
11 today to demand the cancella-
tion of Friday's classes in support
of a national student strike pro-
testing U.S. bombing of North
Vietnam.
Slideshows and workshops have
been planned for Frday morning.
Study shows
court bias
for whites
(Continued from Page 1)
convicts remained relatively
constant, the number of light
sentences given during the sec-
ond period was over 50 per cent
less than in the first and third
periods.'
Schram concludes, "One plau-
sible interpretation may be that
as the possession of marijuana
arrests became more prevalent
as time progressed, the judges
felt they could stop the epidem-
ic in Washtenaw County by in-
creasing their severity."
According to Ager, "this is in-
deed plausible." About that time
the Probation Department
"started closely analyzing pos-
session of marijuana cases be-
fore recommending probation,"
Ager says.'
"As the pro-marijuana band-
wagon began to gather steam
and was joined by respected
citizens in the community, the
judges were'influenced and con-
sequently reduced their sever-
ity," Schram concludes.

An emergency meeting of facul-
ty members and students has been
set for noon today in 6602 Haven
Hall to discuss practical measures;
to stop the bombing in Vietnam.
A Diag rally and march has"
been scheduled Frday as well as
an all-night diag vigil planned to
coincide with the bombings taking;
place in Vietnam at that time.
