Yesterday's vote was slightly closer than the 61-38 mar-

draft extension bill in June.

ers will emphasize the need for
an increased anti-war vote.
' Afternoon teach-ins are also
planned for campus and downtown
locations to include the entire Ann
Arbor community.
While many faculty members
have promised their cooperation,
no definite plans for moratorium
workshops have been scheduled
Coalition members admitted at a
meeting recently their concern
about receiving free use of Uni-
versity facilities needed for speak-
ers and symposiums.
"The dollar question is crucial,"
one member said. "If we develop
the kind of sentiment on this cam-
pus that I think we can build, the
University should cooperate with
us." he added
Coalition members claim that the
"vast majority'' of the American
people are in favor of a complete
withdrawal from Indochina.
In fact. "most of the silent ma-
jority is totally smashed," exulted
Hartrunt Wisch, a leader of the
Ann Arbor group.
Financial-support for past anti-
war teach-in activity has come
mainly from the faculty who were
in the Ann Arbor teach-in two
years ago. Dave Gordon, a leader
of the Ann Arbor coalition, said.
The Ann Arbor coalition also or-
ganized the Oct. 15, 1969 each-in.
At that time poet Allen Ginsbcrg
spoke at Hill Aud., SDS founder
Tom Hayden and others addressed
a peace rally of over 20,000 in the
stadium, homes and factories were
leafletted and most classes were
cancelled or devoted to discussion
of the war.
According to the fall program,
Oct. 25-29 is slated for nonviolent
civil disobedience in Washington,
centering around Veterans' Day
Nov. 3 is set for a national stu-
dent strike, and on Nov. 6 there
will be anti-war demonstrations in
regional centers across the nation.
Labor leaders and student organi-
zations have endorsed the demon-
strations to be held in Detroit.

"You can't stop the war by an
act of Congress of this kind," Re-
publican leader Hugh Scott said,
supporting the Nixon administra-
tion's position that the amend-
ment is a waste of time and po-
tentially harmful.
John Stennis (D-Miss.), agree-
ing with Scott said, "Every time
we pass this amendment in this
way we put obstacles in our path

The touchy issue of the Ameri-
can prisoners swirled throughout
the debate on the amendment
yesterday. When Scott said the
amendment would give up a val-
uable U.S. bargaining card, Mans-
field shot back: "What is that
card - the POWs?"
Mansfield's amendment also re-
quests that the President nego-
tiate with North Vietnam for an
immediate cease-fire and for a
series of "phased and rapid with-
drawals" of U.S. forces in return
for a corresponding series of

Before voting on Mansfield's
amendment, the Senate rejected
51 to 42 an amendment by Sen.
Thomas Eagleton (D-Mo.) to cut
$35 million added by the Senate
Armed Services Committee for
additional research on a new U.S.
Eagleton contended "blind con-
gressional acceptance of bland
Army assurances have kept this
highly questionable tank rolling
along." Committee members said
development of the tank is essen-
tial. .
The amendment declares it is
U.S. policy "to terminate at the
earliest practicable date all mili-
tary operations of the United
States in Indochina and to pro-
vide for the prompt and orderly
withdrawal of all United States
military forces not later than six
months after the date of enact-
ment of this section subject to the
release of all American prisoners
of war held by the government
of North Vietnam and forces al-
lied with such government."

Student Government Coun-
cil early this morning voted
overwhelmingly to comply
with a list of administrative
steps for implementing the
campus - wide judiciary sys-
tem at the earliest possible
At 12:40 a.m., SGC members
called the question to a vote and
it passed 9-1 with one abstention.
"I will immediately set i n t o
motion tomorrow everything that
Council has been asked to comply
with regarding the judiciary," SGC
President Rebecca Schenk told
Council members after the vote.
This includes establishing in-
terview boards to nominate stu-
dents for membership for the new
judiciary's Court of Appeals, and
presenting a list of final nominees
to the Regents for review at their
Oct. 21 meeting.
One week ago, Council had voted
6 4 to refuse to comply with the
steps, outlined in a memo from
the office of Richard Kennedy,
secretary of the University, which
aimed for the adoption of the new
system approved by the Regents
last spring: "as soon as possible."
Kennedy has said this would hope-
fully be just after the Regents'
October meeting.
"We have hopes of reaching a
better settlement," SGC Member-
at-Large Rick Higgins said at the
time. However, earlier this week,
several Regents contacted by Hig-
gins indicated they would not now
consider revising the system to
meet several Council objections to
the plan.
This morning, Higgins recom-
mended that Council comply with
the steps, saying "We have to
take action on it now and start
the new system rolling."
"I told the Regents our objec-
tions, and they listened," Higgins
said. "But each of them said they
had already compromised and that
they considered the present plan
to be an acceptable one."
Thepresent system which is
now free to be put into effect is
a Regent-modified version of the
original draft drawn up by the

ary, a tripartite body of students,

It provides for students to be

The.University Activities Center (UAC) has expanded its

With the part-time help of Peter Andrews, who handles
both publicity and booking, UAC hopes to establish the Day-

Kelley provides impetus to a
proposed increase in the state
income tax to replace the prop-
erty tax-based system of financ-
ing public schools.
Nearly six months ago, Milli-
ken called for elimination of
property taxes for school financ-
ing and raising the flat-rate in-
come tax by 2.3 per cent to 6.2
per cent.
Business would pay 2 per cent
special tax to replace the prop-
erty tax relief it would receive
under the plan.

ces jail after abortion



The country's movement toward'
liberalized abortion laws seems to
have found a rallying point in the
person of Shirley Wheeler, a Flo-
rida housewife who could be sen-
tenced to spend 20 years in jail
for having an abortion.
Wheeler was convicted July 13
after a two-day trial in DeLand,

the county seat of Volusia County,
Fla. She is currently awaiting sen-!
tence. The maximum penalty un-
der the 103-year-old Florida abor-
tion law is 20 years.
According to Joyce Broughton, a
local spokeswomen for the Wo-
men's National Abortion Action

name is expected to be a catch-

"It's just another example of
traditional society's refusal to let,

she says.
The Ann Arbor chapter of
WONAAC is currently gathering
signatures for a petition request-
ing Florida's DemocraticGov.

Wheeler was convicted under an
1868 law, which makes having or
performing an arbortion a felony
unless it is "necessary to protect:

that she paid $300 for an illegal
abortion in Jacksonville, Fla. She
said she had the abortion because

One student, prominent in campus poli-

as "a tool of the administration." Hays,
he asserted, was no more than a "lackey"
running the literary college according to
the dictates of the administration. This
included dismissing of a student because
he was politically undesirable to the ad-
