PROMPTS ACT
By ROB BIER
Associate Managing Editor
The federal government has begun to hold up the award-
ing of contracts to the University pending an agreement
between the Department of Health, Education and Welfare
and the University on an affirmative action program to pro-
mote equal employment for women.
HEW's Contract Compliance Division on Oct. 28 officially
notified the Agency for International Development (AID) that
the University was "not awardable" and that a $350,000 con-
tract renewal must be held up pending an agreement with the

University. The division's dir

SIT-IN ENDS:

The parish council of St. Mary's Student Chapel voted
whelmingly Wednesday night to formally recognize and suppo
Black Economic Development League (BEDL) and county W
Rights Organization (WRO).
The council, composed of members of the parish serving Ca
students in the University, voted to allocate to BEDL and W
significant portion of St. Mary's monetary commitment to the
The exact amount, which could be as high as $14,500, w
decided at a council meeting Nov. 24.
St. Mary's decision ended a BEDL and WRO sit-in which
last Friday at the Father Gabriel Richard Center, home of the C]
student organization.
. BEDL-WRO has demanded a total of $80 million durin
next ten years from churches in Washtenaw County to he

sentatives in Chicago.
"This is normal procedure for
HEW," Fleming said. "They no-
tify you during discussions of a,
report that they will place a hold
on contracts. If that is of concern
to you, you can request a hearing
on the contract." He said, how-
ever, that no such hearing was
being contemplated at the pres-
ent time.
The University annually re-,
ceives around $66 million in fed-
eral contracts, most of which
would be subject to HEW rules.
The present action, however, does
Inot apply to contracts already let,
but only to new contracts and re-
newals.
The HEW action stems from a
letter s e n t Fleming on Oct. 6,
charging the University with dis-
crimination in its employment of
women. At that time, HEW gave
the University 30 days to respond
with an affirmative action pro-
gram which would remedy the sit-
uation. That deadline expires to-
day.
While Fleming has refused to
release details of the letter, he has
indicated that there may be "ser-
ious" disagreement between HEW
and the University on some points.
He has said the report cites sev-
eral cases in which women with
college degrees have been placed
in lower level jobs than men with-
out degrees.
Sources have said that the re-
port relies heavily on statistical
data on the percentage of women
in various job categories, as well
as several specific allegations of
discrimination.
Kiely said similar action h a s
been taken in at leastd30cases
since the, executive order prohib-
iting federal contractors from
practicing job discrimination was
issued by President Lyndon John-
son in 1968.
"We are the contract compli-,
ance agency and other (federal)
agencies are bound to check with
us first," Kiely said. While ithe
hold order applies to all federal
agencies, including t h e Depart-
ment of Defense, Kiely said,
"There is a provision in the De-
partment of Labor which allows
exceptions in cases of national se-
curity.
"The agency which requests an
exception must justify its request,"
he said. There has not yet been a
case where an exception had been
made, he added.
The specific contract being held
up is a renewal of a two-year-old
contract with the government of

SAIGON (iP) - Thousands of
South Vietnamese troops thrust
across the frontier into southeast-
ern Cambodia early this morning
in a massive new offensive to
block enemy infiltration into
South Vietnam.
Initial reports said there was no
significant contact.
The fresh drive to shield South
Vietnam's Mekong Delta raised
South Vietnamese strength in
Cambodia to more than 16,000
troops,
It was the fourth push into
Cambodia by Saigon troops in the
past two weeks aimed against
North Vietnamese units trying to
shift reinforcements and supplies
into the lower half of South Viet-
nam.
It came as the U.S. Command
reported that 24 Americans were
killed in action last week, the low-
est total in five years. Enemy los-
ses were the lowest in nearly four
years, reflecting the drop in com-
bat action in South Vietnam.
The new operation was along
the Mekong River northwest of
the South Vietnamese district
town of Cao Lanh that sits in
the lower half of the Plain of
Reeds.
Informed sources said the North
Vietnamese and Viet Cong had
stepped up their infiltration in re-
cent months in the western Me-
kong Delta.
One objective of the drive '.as
to cut off reinforcements and war
supplies for the North Vietnamese
18B Regiment now operating in
the Seven Mountains region of
Kien Giang Province.
South Vietnamese forces are
working simultaneously to root out
North Vietnamese forces in the
Seven Mountains. They -raptured
Nui Cam Mountain last August
and Nui Dai Mountain is under
governmentcontrol. The key con-
tested mountain is Nui Coto, where
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
still have sizeable units.
The U.S. report on casualties
had been foreshadowed earlier this
week by a Pentagon announce-
ment/that the week's total of com-
bat deaths was less than 30. The
figure was the lowest since the
week ended Oct. 23, 1965, when 14
Americans were killed in action.

Campus unrest survey predicts
decrease in student disruptions

WASHINGTON (P)-College ad-
ministrators and faculty members
differ sharply with students over
the primary cause of campus vio-
lence, but an overwhelming ma-
jority believe university confron-
tations are waning, the President's
Commision on Campus Unrest re-
ported yesterday:
the most likely targets for vio-
lent disruptions this year are
schools enrolling over 10,000 with

low admission standards and Re-
serve Office Training Corps units
on campus, the commission's re-
port added.
The assessments were contained
in a poll taken in July of college
presidents, faculty senate chair-
men and student body presidents.
Administratorstand f a c u l t y
members cited the Vietnam war
as the primary cause of violent
and sporadic outbursts. Students,
however, believed that lack of
communication was the primary
factor.
As for future confrontations, 66
per cent of the students, 70 per
cent of the administrators and 76
per cent of the faculty members
believed violent confrontations
would decrease this year.
Most authorities listed black
student demands and student dis-
content over university regulations
as the two major internal issues
that could touch off campus dis-
orders.
The Indochina war was cited
as the overwhelming external is-
sue that could incite violence.

funds to the universities. Greater
communication was stressed for
local communities.
On the campus itself, adminis-
trators were urged to establish
beter channel of communication
with students. Students were urged
to work within the system.
The questionnaire was sent to
all of the nation's 2,789 accredited
schools, the commission -said. Re-
plies were received from 1,890 in-
stitutions.

Panelist Jim Brugh said this
University was a major contribu-

devices. According to Brugh, these
devices, when mounted on guns or
aircraft enable the military to

charge that between Oct. 13 and
