Brown, expressing the sense of the
body. Speculation that the decis-4

Brown. "Hell, I'm just as dedi-

Cabinet resigned yesterday.
"Well," said Nixon, smiling and relaxed in front of the
White House, "we did our best, but that was none too good."
Nixon spoke on nationwide tlvso for six minutes.HA
had no prepared text, and continued smiling throughout the
telecast, occasionally breaking into fits of senseless laughter.
"Let me make it perfectly clear that I am no longer per-
feet or clear," he said. "I deemed 'it appropriate to resignate
my office immediately effective."
A noted cabinet member summarized Nixon's reasons for
resigning. "We've really fucked it," he said.
Washington observers predict the chief contenders in the
new Presidential election which Congress has scheduled for
September, will be George McGovern, Julian Bond and local
radical Eric Chester.
Nixon has been offered temporary employment by a used car lot in
Butte, Montana.
Secretary of State William Rogers said "Basically, Dick has been
feeling pretty guilty about all the Vietnamese he's killed.
Agnew after resignation "You know, a fellow can get pretty tired of being the tool of
American imperialism after two solid years. Dick felt that maybe
selling cars would be more his thing."

Though only 28 years old, Da-
vis has been a graduate student in
Ann Arbor for 19 years. When lie
is not minding other people's busi-
ness, Davis polishes up his disser-
tation, which he plans to present
"within the next generation."
Davis was tentatively hired as
an instructor by The University
of Nebraska in the fall, but The
Regents of the university decided
they did not need someone of his
unique qualifications. "We al-
ready have plenty of constitutions
in this state." said a statement
released in September by the Ne-
braska Regents, "what we don't
need is someone running around
telling us we're not representative,
amending by - laws, organizing
elections, and the like."
Davis, who believes in "working
within the system," flashed a
peace sign as he left the CSJ'
hearing "Such is Lhe fate of phil-
osopher-kings," he said.

M. Abraham Hirschman, form-
er editor of The Daily, last night
announced the formation of a sec-
ond campus newspaper. The Cam-
pus Comment.
"It's about time the Michigan
Machine Daily stopped monopo-
lizing the campus press." Hirsch-
man said.
Hirschman, suported by repre-
sentatives of right-wing campus
groups, said his newspaper would
take the stylistic form of the Na-
tional Enquirer, an eastern tab-
loid. "Not like that liberal New
York Times," Hirschman was
quick to point out.

Hirschman said the CommentI
would compete with The Daily fort
advertising and subscriptions fromt
the local community.
"I think we can do it," he mus-
ed yesterday. "We'll have more
cartoons, and some neat columns,
like Alsop, perhaps, or maybe Da-!
vid Lawrence."I
Hirschman indicated his stafft
would "be more representative of1
the student body than is T h e

thoress Ayn Rand to be editorialI
director, and was considering Wil-1

The Comment's formation comes
directly after charges from stu-
dent groups that the Daily mo-
nopolizes and manipulates cam-
pus politics.
"The Ann Arbor News just
wasn't hitting hard enough," Jbo
Hirschman said last night. "And I
felt if we wanted a second news- .
paper, we should put one out our-
"It's time T h e Daily stopped'
pushing its Pinko views on ther
University community," he added.
"When a newspaper tries to make
people think a certain way, it's
got to be stopped."
g "ThebDaily has given up being ..
a newspaper." he continued ,"it's
become a radical rag. The job of ;
a newspaper is not to print opin-
ions-it's to print the facts."
Hirschman said his newspaper ,
would try to be as objective as .
possible in its news articles.;
