PCP J: Changing directions?

orning-after pill' proved safe,
effective for use by 'U' survey

(Continued from Page 1)
The group intends to mount a
"massive educational campaign,"
using data gathered at last week's'
panel and others like it yet to be
convened. And they intend to util-
ize this "educational" aspect by
supporting v a r i o u s local anti-
Nixon candidates in p r i m a r i e s
around the country.
Rennie Davis, another P C P J
leader admits that electoral poli-
tics are "co-optive," but adds that
"when you're being co-opted, don't'
withdraw. Co-opt them back."
But the group also intends to
"carry out a resistance program"
along the more traditional lines of
confrontation. "People will have
to take risks-with their lives, if,
necessary," says Froines, in order
to "prove our points" about the
Nixon administration. w h i c h
Froines characterizes as "the first
actually right-wing administi'a-
tion" since before the New Deal.
It was the second of these two
tactics of education and confron-
tation which figured in Tuesday's
march, sit-in and arrests.
Over 1,000 persons marched to-
ward the White House, ostensibly
to serve Nixon with the eviction
notice and to urge acceptance of
the seven point peace plan of the
Provisional Revolutionary Govern-
ment of South Vietnam.
Actually, the group had been
told by its leaders to expect to be
stopped and had planned civil;
disobedience in protest.

police one block from the execu-
tive mansion, PCPJ leaders Davis,

ally resulted in arrests of 298 per-
In the traditional numerical
sense, the sit-in and arrests were
a failure as a tactic, especially
when compared to the Mayday
actions co-sponsored by PCPJ,x
which ultimately, led to 12,000 ar-
Even the People's Panel, novelty

that it was, only drew about 250!
persons to the church where the
"testimony" was heard.
PCPJ leaders had desperately
insisted throughout the week that
"this is not intended as a -massive.
action-it is only the first punch
in a year-long massive campaign."
Marches scheduled for Nov. 6
and co-sponsored with National
Peace Action Coalition (NPAC)
are the only "mass" actions plan-
ned for the present, according to
PCPJ leaders.
However, even with that stated
outlook, they had predicted a
march three times the size of the
one which left the grounds of the
Washington Monument and head-
ed towards the White House Tues-
While admitting their own fail-
ure with a publicity campaign that
was too little and too late-college
papers received announcements of
the Evict Nixon campaign only two
days before the People's Panel'
convened-PCPJ leaders also heav-
ily blamed the "establishment
press" for "not covering anything
until it has already happened."
Froinesnalso pointed to the "pw-
erless, tired and somewhat cyni-
cal feelings" of protest veterans,
but added that he hopes the new
educational and electoral strate-
gies of PCPJ will "inspire people
to begin again."
Privately, however, leaders of
the group gave perhaps a more
fundamental reason for the small-
ness of the crowd-it was a crowd
of organizers, not the usual "mass-
"We have to re-define the move-
ment for ourselves before we can
re-define it for the people," Davis
said. "This week is more to get{
our own heads together than any-
thing else."

this," said twelve-year-old Susan

For Phase One of the Evict Nix-

come together and hold trial runs
for some of the strategies pro-
posed for the coming year.

tion and rhetoric, both fully re-
corded on videotapes that will be'
used during the next eight months
for showings around the country
--a major facet of PCPJ's "educa-
tional" campaign.
The march and arrests, while
not outwardly showing much
promise for mass actions in the,
future, provided one major victory
for PCPJ-that of attracting the
media, which remained for the
most part silent during the Peo-
pie's Panel hearings.
It also served, as did the panel,
to unify the core of PCPJ assem-
bled in Washington this past week.
Whether Phase Two - the next
eight months of educational, elec-
toral, and confrontation tactics-
will be helped or hurt by the
somewhat shaky base set up in
Phase One remains to be seen, as
will this past week's effect on
PCPJ's hoped-for massive demon-
trationat the Republican National
Convention in San Diego in July
(christened Phase Three).
However, it is clear that in
judging the evolving tactics of
PCPJ's eviction campaign, crowd
estimates can no longer be a fair
index of success or failure.

done mostly by Dr. Kuchera in
telephone interviews, it was found
that there were no pregnancies
among the studied women.
All women who took part in the
study were informed about it and
gave theiy consent. It was stress-
ed that this treatment should be
used only as an emergency method ,
of pregnancy prevention because
the posteoital pills have 25 milli-
grams of the estrogen-like sub-
stance while the regular birth
control pills can contain as little
as one tenth of a milligram.
In an interview, Dr. Kuchera
emphasized that "almost 70 per
cent 'of the women had virtually
no side effects" that is only inter-
ittent nausea, slightly swollen
breasts etc. Some of them, how-
ever, got quite sick to their stom-
achs, a few reported headaches or
cramps, and one said she had
never felt better, in her life, a
feeling the doctor thought might
not have been strictly attribut-
able to relief.
As to questions about any long
term side effects, the doctor said
"attempts to induce malignant
tumors in animals with estrogen
have been unsuccessful ." She
pointed out that this particular
drug has already been in Federal
Drug Administration (FDA) ap-I

proved use for thirty years in the
treatment of some disorders.
In another study, however, Har-
vard Medical school scientists re-
ported indications last April that
the same drug when administered
to pregnant women in order to
prevent miscarriage resulted in a
rare form of vaginal cancer in the
daughters of those involved. The
report of sixty additional cases

The Advent Model 201 casette tape deck is the first genuine alternative to records.
Records wearout and are very expensive. Everytime you play one you discover a new scratch, gouge, or
phnert. Gunk gets in the grooves and they warp.
You consider open-reel tape machines: The good ones are expensive as is the good tape. At 33 inches-per-
second, the level of hiss is prohibitive; at 7V2 inches-per-second you use miles of costly tape, and then the reel always
runs out just before the recapitulation in the fourth movement. Threading reels is a bother and there is all that loose
tape to get tangled up in.
You consider cassettes: They are convenient to be sure. Just plunk in a small plastic thing, push a button, and
Instant Music. No fuss, muss, or bother. But the quality of this music from cassettes has always been mediocre at best,
plagued with noise, unsteady in pitch, and about as compelling overall as the sound of an AM car radio.
Advent has an alternative: it's called the Model 201 cassette tape deck and it sounds wonderful. By that, we
mean, as good as the best LP records. The Advent 201 cassette tape deck takes cassettes out of the car-and-back-
ground-music class and makes them possibly the most satisfying medium available for recorded music.
How is Advent able to get such performance from a cassette? First, Advent has incorporated the Dolby Noise
Reduction System@k)-a patented electronic circuit that gets rid of the noise (hiss) that has plagued from the outset,
cassette recording. Then they proceeded to include all those things that no one had bothered to bring to the design
of a cassette machine before: steady-speed tape drive, wide-range record and playback heads, simple and accurate
recording controls, and low-distortion and low-noise electronics.
The transport of the 201 is particularly robust: it uses a high-torque AC motor which drives an oversize fly-
wheel/capstan through an idler rather than the customary belt. The large heavy flywheel and larger capstan en-
sure inaudible wow and flutter and guarantee maximum reliability through continued use.
In addition, the Model 201 incorporates circuitry to take b e s t advantage of the n e w duPont-developed
Crolyn R1 chromium dioxide tape sold by Advent under the Advocate label.
You can hear the Model 201 in our store. Spend some time experimenting with the 201's unique single record
meter system. It lets you monitor your choice of channel A, channel B, or the louder of the two. One of our
salesmen will explain why this is so good.
The Advent Model 201 costs $280 and is completely guaranteed-without charge for either parts or labor-
for one full year.
