set forth by the Department

HEW's demands for more equit-

However, Science claimed that
the administration has circulated;

that "to his knowledge" this has
not occurred.
HEW officials are currently
completing a response to the "af-

last month by the University in an
effort to comply with HEW's de-
mands for more equitable employ-

President Robben Fleming is among a group of 23 indi-
viduals being considered to succeed Nathan Pusey as president
of Harvard University, according to the Harvard Crimson, the
university's student newspaper.
A copywrighted story in today's issue of the Crimson
states that Fleming's name remained on the list of nominees
after a search committee composed of members of the Har-
vard Corporation-the university's governing body-recently
pared a list of 69 nominees to the smaller group. The new
president will be chosen by about Feb. 1.
Commenting yesterday on his inclusion on the list of 23

The investigating officers said the bomb went off out-

night, literary college Assistant

said he believed that the student
members of the hearing board do
not necessarily have to be ap-

tained by other means to serve on
the judicial board, the hearing
could conceivably proceed, he said.
Shaw said that the employment
of such procedure is very unlikely

NEW YORK - Five former military in-

program last night that the Army has

One of the allegations made by the form-
er agents was that the Army often gathers
information about public officials.
David Johnson, a former intelligence
agent and now a student at a West Coast
college, said, "The (Army's) files contain
the names of various high officials with-
in the United States government," in-
cluding senators, representatives and oth-
er officials who had spoken out against
the Vietnam war.
