Child-care
bil vetoed
NyliXon
Strongly worded
statement blasts
anti-poverty act
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Nixon vetoed yesterday a bill to
establish a massive federal child-
care program, describing it as rad-
ical, reactionary legislation which
would promote communal-rather
than family - centered-approaches
to childrearing.
In his strongly worded message
to Congress, Nixon also said the
measure to extend the anti-pover-
ty agency and establish the child-
development program was too cost-
ly and administratively unwork-
able.
After issuing the veto message,
presidential press secretary Ronald
Ziegler said Nixon was not opposed
to some form of child-care aid for
welfare recipients.
But, Ziegler said, Nixon feels
"the American people have not
indicated in any way" a desire
"for the federal government to get
involved in raising children on this
scale."
Nixon, in his veto message, de-
clared, "For the federal govern-
ment to plunge headlong financial-
ly in supporting child development
would commit the vast moral au-1
thority of the national government
to the side of communal approach-
es to child-rearing over against the
family-centered approach.''
Senate Democratic Leader Mikel
Mansfield (D-Mont.) said he was
not prepared to say whether an.
attempt will be made to override
the President's veto. But other
Democratic sources said they doubt
the Senate would override, pre-
dicting several Republicans who
voted for the bill might vote to
sustain Nixon's action.
Patterned largely on the popu-
lar preschool Head Start program
for the poor, the legislation would
create a far broader program of
day-care, medical, nutritional nd
social services for children from
all walks of life.I

Bill cuts pot sanctions
to misdemeanor level

By PAUL TRAVIS
The State Senate approved a broad new drug and nar-
cotics law yesterday with reductions in the penalties for use,
possession and sale of marijuana, LSD, peyote and mescaline.
After much fiery debate the Senate passed .the House-
Senate 'conference committee compromise bill with a vote of
22-12. The bill had won approval in the House on Tuesday.
To become law, the bill still has to be signed by Governor
William Milliken, who is expected to approve it. It will not
go into effect until April.
Under the bill, marijuana penalties would vary depend-
ing on the amount and use.
"Use" would be classified as a misdemeanor with a maxi-
mum penalty of a 90 day jail
sentence and a $100 fine. ( "

Pakistan's delegation to the
United Nations yesterday told
Secretary-General U Thant that
it accepts the cease-fire appeal
of the General Assembly "sub-
ject to a call for U.N. observers
on both sides."
Meanwhile, India claimed Pak-
istani troops were fleeing across
the rivers of East Pakistan be-
fore a swift Indian advance that
had driven to within 25 miles
of Dacca, the East Pakistani
provincial capital.
India also claimed the Paki-
stani air force had been wiped
out.
Pakistan had asked the U.N.
for observers before, but -India
had opposed such a move. The
assembly had called on both
countries Tuesday for an im-
mediate cease- fire and with-
drawal of troops.

Despite the Indian advance,
Radio Pakistan said: "Indian in-
vasion forces have been blunted
on all fronts in East Pakistan
and they have been dealt heavy
punishment."
S p o k e s m e n in Rawalpindi
claimed Pakistani troops retreat-
ing from the border post of
Kamalpur killed 540 Indians, and
that 45 members of an Indian
mountain regiment surrendered
after being surrounded by Paki-
stani troops.
But a high Indian commander
s a i d thousands of Pakistani
troops were trying to reach
Dacca and were being fired up-
on from the air as the Indian
forces came in behind them.
A news dispatch from Dacca
reported that with Indian troops
drawing nearer, thousands of
residents were fleeing the city.

votes

age:

By CHARLES STEIN
Student Government Council
voted 5-3 last night to "author-
ize and order the printing of the
names of 224 undercover agents
in its publication Student Action,
scheduled for distribution next
Tuesday.
In other action, SGC voted to
refer a complaint lodged against
the Orson Welles Film Society
to Central Student Judiciary and
appointed Bob Nelson, Grad, to
fill a Council vacancy.
The decision to print the names

came after a controversial de-
bate which stemmed from fear
of legal action, as police officials
have stated that anyone who
published the list would be guilty
of a felony.
In the debate on the measure
before Council, however, Joel
Silverstein, who sponsored the
motion, claimed that he had con-
tacted nine lawyers, and none
could find any legal problem
with printing the list.
The names in question are all
located on a list that was cir-

release

culated last week at the Mich-
igan State University campus in
East Lansing, in a booklet en-
titled "Know Your Local Po-
lice." The list contains the
names, home phones and code
n u m b e r s of 224 undercover
agents, operating in the state of
Michigan.
Included in the list are 113
agents of the Detroit Police De-
partment, 103 agents of the
State Police and eight agents on
the state attorney general's or-
ganized crime division.
The list was stolen from the
State Police headquarters, and
soon afterwards the Joint Issue,
an underground paper in East
Lansing, got access to the list.
They considered printing it, but
their professional printers re-
fused to print it.
In introducing the measure
Silverstein said, "The people on
the list are involved in making
Edrug arrests as well as political
hsurveillance. I think Council
would be performing a service
by making the list public.",
Council-member, Michael Davis
also spoke in favor of the mea-
sure and stressed the poiont that
''publishing the list would serve
to weaken the police state which
has acted to silence so many peo-
ple."
