like to hold orientation meet-
ings at the Rackham Bldg. in
Detroit to help parents under-
stand the problems their sons
and daughters will encounter.'
Another major component of
the Black Student Center would
be comprehensive counseling fa-
cilities to offer advice in a num-
ber of areas the proposal states.
The plan asks that two or
three underclass and one upper-
class academic counselors be as-
signed to the center. In addition,
associated counselors specializ-
ing in dealing with minority stu-
dents would be designated in
the schools and colleges.
"This would be an attempt to
identify some of these persons
who are particularly responsive
to Opportunity students," Mad-
dox says.
In the area of personal coun-
seling, the plan requests the
Bureau of Psychological Services
and the Mental Health Clinic to
each "contribute" one of their
counselors for a half-time ap-
pointment at the center.
"In specific cases it would re-
quire the counselor to be of the
same ethnic background," Mad-
dox says. "Blacks feel more com-
fortable with blacks-members
of the same group would better
understand each other."
In addition, a financial aid
counselor would be assigned
full-time to d i s c u s s budget
problems with students and to
review aid policies concerning
minority students.
To help students find jobs
after they graduate, the pro-
posal calls for a vocational
counselor to provide placement
and careers guidance. Another
person would be assigned to help
find summer and part-time jobs
for Opportunity Program stu-
Finally, a full-time housing
counselor, the proposal states,
would aid black students in find-
ing housing before coming to
campus and to assist dormitories
in placing minority Resident
A third major component of
the Black Student Center would
be a media-production center to
produce materials for orienta-
. tion, training and other parts
of the program.
"It would assist in overcom-
ing the tremendous communica-
tions gap among student organi-
zations and in the various de-
partments," Maddox says. "It
would also keep the larger com-
munity of parents, legislators
and the media aware of what is
going on as far as the Oppor-
tunity students."
An additional component of
the center would plan and eo-
ordinate summer programs for
entering freshmen and transfer
students and aid schools and
colleges in establishing similar

The proposal also asks for a
person to be assigned half-time
to seek money from the federal
and state governments, founda-
tions and alumni sources.
The Black Student Center
would also include physical fa-
cilities for black organizations,
a conference room and the of-
fices of associated programs
such as CULS.
"It's an attempt to consolidate
the offices the students encoun-
ter on a day-to-day basis in one
area," Maddox explains.
Maddox justifies separating
services for black and minority
students because "these are stu-
dents with unique lifestyles and
problems which I don't believe
normal departments can handle
in the same fashion as for the
average student."
Maddox adds the consolida-
tion plan is not "an entirely
difficult thing," claiming it
could be accomplished with ex-
isting personnel and facilities.
As to charges of "empire-
building" Maddox says, "I en-
countered all kinds of personnel
difficulties in coping with edu-
cational institutions and I will
do everything within my power
to assure that no other student
will encounter the same ob-
stacles that I did merely because
they are black, chicano, Ameri-
can Indian, Puerto Rican or
come from a lower economic
Whether all or some of the
proposed Black Student Center
is approved by the University's
executive officers, CULS will
continue its quiet efforts to aca-
demically aid entering minority
group students.
"The coalition has taken the
lead here," Maddox says. "They
are teaching students how to
learn in a group setting where
they can be supportive of each
A leaflet describes CULS as a
"program of black people and
other people in the University
who have experienced the cp-
pressive effects of racism and
exploitation and are determined
to constribute to changing those
effects through improving and
using their skills."
A unit of the literary college,
CULS works with minority stu-
dents across the University.
Describing CULS as a "very
enthusiastic group," Alfred Suss-
man, acting dean of the literary
i college, says that the program
will have an important effect on
the college's counseling effort in
Among CULS' programs are
study groups which supplement
regular sections. Taught by up-
perclassmen and graduate stu-
dents, the study sections review
course material and study skills
and relate the course content
to the experience of the stu-

Another major CULS effort is
to improve study skills through
group effort. These review items
such as note taking, preparing
for tests and doing library re-
search. Also included is a read-
ing improvement program.
In some courses CULS has es-
tablished separate Opportunity
P r o g r a m recitation sections
which minority students may
enroll in.
"They're special only in the
sense that we hope the teaching
is better." CULS Director J.
Frank Yates says of the sections,
explaining they are only for
four or five courses. "Everything
we do is voluntary. We see
where students have been hav-
ing difficulty in the past, where
they (the sections) would be
something useful."
William Fenstemacher, assist-
ant to Spurr, insists that the
standards for these sections are
the same. There are however
some University administrators
who would prefer not to sepa-
rate Opportunity students from
the rest of the student body.
"Philosophically there's a lot
of space for argument. I'm a
little worried about classes being
totally black, but that's not the
case," Fenstemacher says, de-
fending the sections. "The needs
of the students have to be dealt
with-they have certain needs
for study skills and these are
incorporated in the classes."
CULS also attempts to help
students find employment and
publishes a mimeographed bul-

letin of job possibilities, Yates
"We try to gather information
about opportunities for gradu-
ates, places they might work-
black organizations and white
firms that are trying to change,"
Yates explains.
In the area of counseling,
CULS uses upperclassmen and
graduate students to help stu-
dents. "We try to augment reg-
ular counseling with our own,"
Yates says.
In addition, there are special-
ly designated counselors for
minority students in the regular
literary college counseling office,
who have more latitude than
"There are special guidelines
like dropping later than the
normal date and special advice
on the number of hours a stu-
dent should take," Fenstemach-
er says.
Yates emphasizes that CULS
is trying to do more than just
adapt minority students to the
present University environment.
"It requires bending at both
ends," he says.
"The way these programs
evolved, the people said 'Some-
thing is wrong with the kid, he
has to fit into the way things
are going.' This says that the
University has been doing things
right., It's not recognized that
the University has an obligation
to change," Yates explains.

has increased, and the Pentagon
has revised its estimate of the
number of North Vietnamese
troops in Laos from about 65,000
to 70,000. The number of N o r t h
Vietnamese in Cambodia has in-
creased as many as 10,000 to be-
tween 50,000 and 55,000 troops.
The North Vietnamese units were
described by Pentagon sources as
logistic troops whose movement
usually precedes a combac assault.
In Moscow Soviet Premier
Alexei N. Kosygin was quoted by
Tass as saying "an outrageous in-
vasion of the southern provinces of
Laos is under way."
The Soviet news agency quoted
the government newspaper Izves-
tia as saying an invasion of Laos
had been carried out by South
Meanwhile, reports from the
Laotian capital of Vientiane said
the Pathet Lao and their North
Vietnamese allies were threaten-
ing attacks against two key points
in Laos.
Two regiments of the North
Vietnamese 312th Division have
returned to northern Laos after a
six-month absence and apparent-
ly are preparing for an attack on
Long-Chang near the Plain of
Jars, the Laotian Defense Min-
istry reported. Other military
sources in Laos said the Com-
munist forces appear to be ready-
ing an attack in the southern
part of the country.
There has been speculation for
several weeks that South Viet-

namese troops supported by U.S.
planes would drive into Laos in an
effort to sever the Ho Chi Minh
Trail, a network of jungle paths
and roads used by the Commun-
ists to funnel troops and supplies
from North Vietnam into Cam-
bodia and South Vietnam.

planes have been hammering at
the trail with tons of bombs in
an effort to cut the flow of sup-
plies. Senate Majority Leader
Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.), said
a South Vietnamese invasion of
Laos supported by American
planes would be an extension of
the war. He said at the appropriate
time he would back legislation to
bar use of U.S. airpower for logis-
tics and combat support in Indo-
china outside of Vietnam.
Although congressional restric-
tions bar use of American ground

he piloted a Chinook helicopter in
the Army Air Calvary "near the
perimeter of Ahn Ke" said his or-

"My mind was so psyched into
killing gooks that once I shot into
a group of peasants,"said Duffy.
"We'd fire on a sniper in a vil-

ran out-often setting fire to huts."
Unlike Sunday, when members of
two right-wing groups, Break-
through and the Edmund Burke so-
ciety, marched outside the site of
the investigations, there were no
visible protests yesterday. This
may have been due to the sub-zero
temperature, observers said.
The title "Winter Soldier Investi-
gation" alludes to Revolutionary
War pamphleteer Thomas Paine's
comment on "the summer soldier
and sunshine patriot who in this
crisis shrinks from the service of
his country."
At the POW workshop, Virginia
Warner, mother of a POW, charged
that families of POWS "have been

"I wish . . . I had never urged
anyone to write to Hanoi," she
said, adding "I never wanted Viet-
nam bombed. I am not proud that
my son helped to bomb Vietnam
and I don't want any more Vietna-
mese people killed."
The panel as a whole urged

GI's to list as beneficiaries of
their $15,000 GI life insurance
policies groups such as the Black
Panthers and their own group of
anti-war veterans.
Specialist Fourth Class D a v e
Dorey, scheduled to testify today
said that he was disappointed by
Sunday's hearings. "They're
trashing GI's," he said. "By tell-
ing war story after war story," he
explained, "they setting them-
selves up as individual soldiers in-
stead of bringing out the real
problems of U.S. foreign policy, of
economic imperialism and blind
obedience." Dorey said that al-
though he "doesn't think the
hearings will end the war," they
have "good propaganda value."
He commented that he was only
"partially pleased with the peo-
ple who appeared to testify,
charging that "too many of them
came to tell war stories to teach
others and the press instead of do-
ing something constructive."
Dorey, active in' GI Movement,
a group which seeks to organize
malcontents among the armed
forces, promised that his testimony
today won't consider simply
"specific atrocities" but c o u 1 d
concentrate on the 'broader is-

sues.' After the hearings, D o r e y
hopes to "return to Alabama and
keep working with the enlisted
Although the organizers of the
Investigation were veterans, many
non-veterans worked yesterday,
helping with telephone answer-
ing, registration, feeding the vet-
erans, assisting the press.
Today's hearing will include re-
presentatives from the 1st, 4th
and 9th Infantry Divisions and a
medical panel.
The hearings are partially fi-
nanced by actress Jane Fonda and
author-lawyer Mark Lane, as well
as the Vietnam Veterans against
the War. All those testifying pre-
sented certificates of honorable
discharge to the press. The Veter-
ans group as a whole claims a
membership of over 5,000 with
over 100 members scheduled to
testify by the conclusion of the
Winter Soldier Investigation.

Punxsutawney Phil. "They just
pick out any old ground hog," he
says. "If Phil were just one
ground hog he would be well over
100 years old."
When asked about the feasibility
of a 100-year-old ground hog, Pro-
'fessor Lay was adamant. "A 100-
year-old ground hog?" he asked.
"Why, it's very rare for a ground
hog to reach the age of seven.
Very, very rare!"

chosen ground hog for the year had

But, despite this rumored cor-
ruption and fraud, Punxsutawney
continues to perform the rites and
ceremonies that are a part of their
most important day. And people
continue to flock to the small town
to witness the spectacle.
"It's easy to get there once you're

If Professor Beyer is correct,

show again this year. Of course,
he may also bite the keeper.
