At last month's Regents meet-

commitment to build low cost
housing; The ,Regents responded
they would welcome any "con-
Crete" proposals presented them on
the subject.
"We have specific plans," said
Fred Arnold, a spokpsman for TU,
last night. TU will call on the Re-
gents to "direct the Resource Al-
locations Committee to come up
with the funds," he explained.
He also said that they' will sug-

No local agenda

on East Coast

atorium, suggests the National
Strike for Peace advertise-
ment in this week's New York
But the two-hour moratorium,
which was backed by the area Stu-
dent Mobilization Committee
(SMC) has not been organized
Although the SMC endorsed the
New York-based action by sign-
ing the advertisement, chairman
Dave Ruhland said, "We're not
trying to build this in Ann Ar-
bor because it hasn't been well-
planned." He predicted that- t h e
strike won't "get off much beyond
the East coast."
Ruhland said he did not pre-
sent the National Strike to the
local Peace Action Coalition
(PAC) because of the lack of na-
tional coordination and involve-
ment. "This is different from last
year's Moratorium," he said. "It's
been based mainly in New York."
Although there is no structured
agenda for the strike, to be held
from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., the ad-
vertisement boasts a ten-item list
of suggestions for "meaningful
activities." Among them are do-
nating blood, writing letters to
President Nixon, Vice-President
Agnew or Congressmen, working
for peace candidates for the Nov.
3 elections, holding a teach-in,
joining an anti-war organization
or petitioning a governing body to
pass an anti-war resolution.
Future plans of the National
Strike group include support of
the national PAC mass rallies
planned for Oct .31 in 25 cities
around the country and organizing
activities for Nov. 15, the first
anniversary of the March on

formed in September. It presented
ideas and received some support at
the national PAC meeting held in
Chicago later that month.
Last year on Oct. 15, the mora-
torium was nation-wide, making
its presence felt in major cities,
as well a on college campuses. The
day was marked by well-attended
seminars, teach-ins and lectures.
About 20,000 persons at the Uni-
versity last year attended a rally
at the Crisler Arena in protest of

Biological warf are stockpiles
remain despite Nixon claims


Dispatch News Service
WASHINGTON - Despite a
presidential renunciation of bio-
logical warfare more than 10
months ago, the United States is
still maintaining a vast stockpile
of lethal biological agents.
Approximately 10,000 gallons of
some of the most deadly killers
known to man - including the
dreaded disease Anthrax - are

now stored at the Army's biolo-
gical production center at Pine
Bluff, Ark.
President Nixon announced Nov.
25, 1969, that the United States
would get out of the biological
warfare field, except for a small
program of defensive research.
Yet it can now be reported that
four biological warfare agents are
currently in t h e U.S. stockpile.

Campus Co-op (NCC), however, believe
their houses have been misnamed.
"My biggest gripe is that we have no
home. We feel like nomads, having lived
out of suitcases for six weeks," says one
co-op resident. "It really gets you down.
Instead of eating on the run it's living on
the run. Our co-op spirit is mildewing
along with all our belongings."

In addition, the military h a s
developed a dozen sophisticated
biological warfare spray tanks,
bombs, a nd other delivery sys-
tems capable of disseminating dry
