bus bombing
DETROIT R) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation ar-
rested six men yesterday, including the former grand dragon
of the state Ku Klux Klan, on charges of conspiring to dyna-
mite school buses in Pontiac, Mich.
The Aug. 30 bombing, destroyed 10 school buses and dam-
aged several others on the Pontiac Public Schools bus lot.
The buses were to be used in a court-ordered school desegre-
gation plan which went into effect Tuesday.
Among those arrested was Robert Miles, 46, of Howell,
Mich., who recently announced he had stepped down as
grand dragon of the Michigan Realm of the United Klans of
America, Inc.

WASHINGTON ( - Presi-
dent Nixon told Congress yes-
terday the current 90-day
wage-price freeze will not be
extended but instead will be
replaced by an unspecified
"system of wage and price
stabilization."
IThis system, Nixon said, would
be worked out after consultations
with Congress and various busi-
ness and labor groups, the first
of which will be a conference to-
morrow with several top labor un-
ion leaders.
The3wage-price freeze expires
Nov. 13.
The President made the an-
nouncement in a 25-minute tele-
vised speech before a seemingly
Sreceptive audience of legislators,
diplomats and cabinet members.
"Regimentation and govern-
ment coercion must never become
a way of life in the United States,"
Nixon said. "Price and wage sta-
bilization, in whatever form it
takes, must be only a way-station
on the road to free markets and
free collective bargaining in a
new prosperity without war."
As for specific requests to Con-
gress, Nixon urged that three tax
proposals he unveiled Aug. 15 as
part of a blockbuster economic
program should be given "first
priority-before all other busi-
ness."
These measures, now being con-
sidered by the House Ways and
Means Committee, would remove
the 7 per cent tax on autos, grant
rapid tax write-off privileges to
businessmen investing in new
plants and machinery, and ac-
celerate by one year a $50 increase
in personal income tax exemp-
tions now scheduled to take ef-
fect Jan. 1, 1973.
"Taken together," said Nixon,
"these proposals would reduce
taxes now paid by individuals by
$3.2 billion, and would provide
$2.7 billion in incentives to com-
panies to invest in job producing
equipmen."
AFL-CIO President G e o r g e
Meany and some other labor
chiefs have argued the Nixon
package would grant too much
tax aid to industry and not
enough to individuals.
The President, after asking for
priority handling of tax legisla-
tion, next emphasized a call to
Congress to resist "many tempta-
tions to raise spending and to cut
taxes in addition to the recom-
mendations I have made."
In the short run, he said, cut-
ting taxes and boosting spending
is popular, but went on:
"As we look at the realities of
the budget at this time, we must
face up to this hard fact: any ad-
ditional spending increases not
accompanied by tax increases -
and any additional tax cuts not

-$1 million for staff increases
at the Flint campus.
The difference between the $11 5
million in new essential expendi-
tures and the $9.9 million in new
dollars available will be offset by
a reallocation of funds within the
University.
Included in the reallocation is
about $2.8 million made available
in July when each unit of the Uni-
versity was required to submit a
plan for "saving" an amount equal
to three per cent of its previous
year's salary budget through re-
ductions in faculty, staff, and
other instructional costs.
In addition, President Robben
Fleming yesterday said the Uni-
versity has still not reached a de-
cision on whether to continue any
portion of the traditional $1.1 mil-
lion subsidy to the city of Ann
Arbor for police and fire services.
If these payments are not con-
tinued, the money apparently could
be reallocated to fund other gen-
eral fund expenditures. Along with
the savings in the units, reallo-
cated money would then total $3.9
million.
That figure, added to the 89.9
million in "actual" new dollars
available to the University this
year appear to provide the Uni-
versity with a new purchasing
nower of $13.8 million - or 2.3
