to examine the hand-baggage of outbound passengers and, whenever

piracy and sabotage," the announcement said.
Luggage searches for weapons are dne more step in the Govern-
ment's attempt to insure that guerrillas do not hijack commercial

WASHINGTON () - President Nixon signed executive
orders yesterday blocking a threatened nationwide rail strike
for 60 days.
Acting under provisions of the Railway LaborAct, Nixon
created a five-member fact-finding board to lo'ok into the
dispute between four unions and some 160 rail lines.
If settlements are not arranged at the end of 60 days, the
unions will be free to strike - unless Congress should enact
emergency legislation in the interim.

WASHINGTON (P) - A top
government open-housing official
resigned yesterday, accusing the
Nixon administration of encour-
aging and perpetuating racial dis-
crimination in housing.
Robert Affeldt said he became
"very, very frustrated" in his one
year as director of conciliation
in the housing opportunity divi-
sion of the Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development.
He is leaving the,$24,000-a-year
government post to return to the
University of Toledo as a law pro-
"The Nixon administration is
not only indifferent to fair hous-
ing but is actively opposing it by
acts of commission and omis-
sion," Affeldt told a news con-
ference. "As a result of t h i s
policy, the federal government is
encouraging and perpetuating ra-
cial discrimination in h o u s i n g,
employment and education."
He accused administration of-
ficials of sabotaging the depart-
ment'q limited conciliation of dis-'
crimination comiplaints and of re-
fusing to withhold federal'aid-
as he contended is permitted by
law-from communities that balk
at enforcement of open housing.
Affeldt's comments appear to
reinforce similar complaints re-
cently from private civil rights or-
ganizations, some members of
Congress, and from the chairman
of the U.S. Civil Rights Commis-
sion, the Rev. Theodore M. Hes-
Secretary of Housing George
Romney, while publicly commit-
ted to an "open communities"
policy, has said the language of
the landmark 1968 open housing
law is too gentle to sanction large
scale cutoffs of federal aid to
cities and towns that resist open
By coincidence, Affeldt an-
nounced his resignation about the
same time Asst: Atty. Gen. Wil-
liam H. Rehnquist was telling the
Federal Bar Association t h a t
federal employes who differ pub-
licly with the administration may
lose their jobs.

Geoffrey Norman told the Re-
gents that the - University per-
formed $62.4 million of research
"For three years the expendi-
ture rate has been plateaued at

said, adding that he does not ex-

Norman said the University has
1600 to 1700 research projects at

a substantial percentage are re-
levant to today's social problems.
In other action, the Regents de-
cided to appeal the LaVerne Hill
case. The state Civil Rights Com-
mission ruled earlier this month
that the University had discrim-
inated against Mrs. Hill, a former
nurse at University hospital.
The Regents also ruled that
from now on a University student
can neither gain nor lose state
residency status by marriage. Pre-
viously the residency of a wife
followed that of her husband.
Finally, the Regents appointed
