WASHINGTON ,(A) - The Senate strongly voted down
last night the first proposal to cut United States support of
the United Nations in the wake of the decision to seat the
People's Republic of China as the representatives of the 700
million Chinese people.
By a 55-28 vote, it rejected an amendment by Sen. James
Buckley (Con-R-N.Y.) to cut $101.5 million of the $130 mil-
lion in the foreign aid bill earmarked for U.N. programs.
The decision to reject Buckley's amendment came after
, Sens. J.W. Fulbright (D-Ark.) and Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.)
warned it would hurt programs to aid children and drug
victims as well as assistance to underdeveloped countries.
"This is absolutely the worst course for our country,"

LANSING-The State Legis-
lature yesterday took a strong
stance against controversial
court - ordered school busing
plans by approving a resolu-
tion which asks Congress to
take steps to ban the use of
forced busing as a means
I toward integrating pub1ic
schools.
Final approval of the resolu-
tion came yesterday in the House,
as representatives voted 67-31 in
favor of the previously-approved
Senate proposal.
The measure, proposed by Sen.
John Bowman (D-Roseville), asks
Congress to convene a constitu-
tional convention which would
consider an anti-busing amend-
ment to the federal Constitution.
Under Article Five of the U.S.
Constitution, Congress musti call
a special convention for proposing
amendments if requested to do so
by two-thirds of the 50 states.
The amendment proposed by the
resolution would read: "No stu-
dents shall be assigned to nor
compelled to attend any particular ;
public school on account of race,
religion, color or national origin.
Bowman said Wednesday that
legislators in Arizona, Mississippi
North Dakota, Texas and Tennes-
see have made "commitments" to
propose identical resolutions.

The University has formally,
responded to a suit against it-
which s e e k s increased educ-
ational opportunities for Indians
-by questioning the validity of
the plaintiff as a true Indian
representative.
The suit, filed last August by
Paul Johnson, Grad, claims that
the University owes the Chippe-
wa, Ottawa, Potowatomy Indians
money and increased educational
opportunities to compensate for
the land those tribes gave to the
University under the terms of
the Fort Meigs Treaty of 1817.

o bring law suit

According to Johnson's lawyer
Elmer White, the University in
its response has "thumbed its
nose at the court." "We don't
intend for the University to talk
to us like the defendant," he
said.
The University questions John-
son on such matters as how often
he attends tribal meetings, and
his tribal organization. "If I
were b 1 a c k or white they
wouldn't be asking me these
questions," said Johnson. He
added the University is "buying
time" by challenging his right
to sue.

At present, there are 50 such
persons in the jail who have
been charsaed by the district court
with felonies, or are awaiting pre-
liminary felony hearings,
As a result of the judge's order
these types of prisoners can no
longer go to the county jail but
rather must stay at Police lock-
ups in the different towns.
In addition, the Detroit House
of Corrections has agreed to take
up to eighty prisoners-40 men
nd 40 women and all the federal
prisoners have been transferred
out during the past week.

Johnson has -turned to the Ft.
Meigs Treaty to advance his plea
for more Indian admissions and
Indian culture courses at the
University along with his de-
mands for better Indian elemen-
tary and secondary education.
He claims the treaty states the
Indians gave the 3840 acres of
land on which the Univedsity
was established, "believing they
may wish some of their children
hereafter educated."
Johnson is asking that the
University be made to account
for the' revenue it received off of
this land and because of ti-e
"slights" given the Indians, he
says he is following he s:uit
through the courts as a ),utter
of principle.
University officials, however,
dispute Johnson's claims.
"The University does not have
any responsibility to the Indians
derived from this treaty," said
University legal adviser Rod-
erick Daane. "As a matter of
social philosophy it may very
well have some responsibility,"
he conceded but said he needed
more information to make a def-
inite statement on this point.
Daane claims that the language
of the Ft. Meigs Treaty con-
notes "a charitable trust ut
best."
Allan Smith, vice president for
academic affairs, says that John-
son was already hired as a part-
time Indian recruiter to increase
Indian admisisons to the Uni-
versity. He said he has also sent
out a note to all department
heads to bring in more Indian
