'76

BOSTON (A) -Sen. Edward Kennedy, the last sur-
viving Kennedy brother, announced yesterday he
would not seek the presidency or vice presidency in
1976, saying that family responsibilities prevented
him from running.
"I will not accept the nomination," said Ken-
nedy. "I will not accept a draft. My primary re-
sponsibilities are at home."
KENNEDY WAS often*cited as the leading Demo-
cratic prospect for 1976, and his withdrawal threw
the race wide open to a broad field of hopefuls.
The Massachusetts Democrat said he had learned
from his brothers John and Robert that a presiden-
tial campaign "demands a candidate's undivided at-
tention and his deepest personal commitment."

He said at a Boston news conference that he
could not make the full commitment necessary for
a presidential campaign. "I simply cannot do that
to my wife, children and other members of my
family," he said.
KENNEDY, 42, said the 1969 accident at Chappa-
quiddick Island was not a factor in his decision not
to run, although he conceded the issue would have
been raised if he sought the presidency.
Kennedy's wife Joan, who was at his side during
the new conference, has been in rest homes twice
in recent months. His son, Edward Jr., lost part of
a leg last November because of bone cancer.
The action brings relief to those fearful of the con-

Vee p's worth
And now the figures you've been waiting for:
Nelson Rockefeller told the Senate Rules and Ad-
ministration Committee yesterday that he earned
almost $47 million over the past decade. Twenty-
one million went to taxes. He also disclosed that, in
addition to '$62.5 million in personal assets and
$116.4 million in two trosts from which he receives
income, his wife receives income from $3.9 million
trust while their children receive income from a
$35.7 million trust. But he added that he sees no
conflict posed by his vast fortune. "There could be
no conflict with anything," said the prospective
veep, "because my sole purpose is to serve my
country."
Nixon hospitalized
An ashen-faced Richard Nixon checked into the
Memorial Hospital Medical Center in Long Beach,
Calif., for treatment for phlebitis. The former pres-
ident refused to comment on his health, and mere-
ly smiled and said, "good afternoon" to a reporter
who asked him how he felt. He ignored, another
reporter who asked him about his: health. He was
accompanied by his wife, Pat, and his daughter,
Julie Nixon Eisenhower. Private security men
guarded his room, and hospital workers were told,
not to divulge any information about flowers, cards
or what Nixon will be eating.

DETROIT - President
Verald Ford yesterday is-
sued a terse warning to
Arab nations and. raised
the possibility of global
war if oil price and supply
problems are not solved.
Addressing the N i n t h
World Energy Conference,
Ford said, "Sovereign na-
tions cannot allow their
policies to be dictated, or
their fate decided, by arti-
ficial rigging and distor-
tion of world commodity
markets."

UAW

leads

clerical
run-off

vote, faces

By BARBARA CORNELL
The United Auto Workers
(UAW) last night won the larg-
est share of more than 2400
votes cast by the University's
clericals in a six-day unioniza-
tion election, beating the Ameri-
can Federation of State, County,
and Municipal Employes (AF-
SCME). But UAW failed to win
a majority and now will oppose
the "no union" option in a run-
off contest.
With unofficial results count-
ed, UAW took 1013 of the cleri-
cal workers' votes-just 198 tal-
lies shy of the 50 per cent-plus
figure needed to win the elec-
tion outright. A surprising 734
workers chose the ballot's "no
union" option, leaving AFSCME
a poor third with 526 of the
2420 votes cast.

Michigan Employment Rela-
tions Commission (MERC) said
the run-off vote will begin 2-6
weeks after last night's ballots
are certified five days from
now.
Local AFSCME leaders said
last night they will vote among
themselves this morning on
whether to throw support be-
hind UAW in the run-off ballot-
ing.
UAW organizer Pam O'Con-
nor, clerical worker, said she
and other staffers are "ecs-
tatic" with the first round of re-
sults in the had-fought union
battle.
"WE STILL have some work
cut ou for us," O'Connor added,
"but I'm very optimistic. Be-
fore the election I had no idea
what people thought, but since
the majority voted for a union,
I have some indication as to
how the run-off will go."
Speaking for AFSCME's local
campaign, clerical Gretchen
Gehr said: "We worked hard
and we want to thank everyone
who helped us."
Earlier yesterday, s e v e r a l
AFSCME w or k er s said they
would refuise to back UAW in
the run-off vote.
MERC officials s a i d they
counted 147 "challenge" ballots
-votes of questionable eligibil-
ity or authenticity which have
been disputed by the unions'
pollwatchers. But the officials
noted that the widely divided
vote totals virtually eliminated
the chance of a changed out-
conme.

aganda," said another clerical
sardonically.
One clerical worker said her
vote for UAW was "just a guess
as to who would be the best
union," but that "AFSCME has
not done much for the rest of
the University under them, so
they wouldn't be the best for us
either."
AN AFSCME supporter did
not agree. "I think it will be a
fair union, and I like the idea
that they already have the main-
tenance and service workers,"
she said. "I think the UAW is a
bit too big and too powerful.
Our grievances might get lost."
Another clerical, her hands
full of literature' praising the
two unions, claimed, "The whole
election was mishandled," and
said she intended to vote non-
union in the run-off.

The president, employing the
severest official language yet
used in discussing massive oil
price hikes, added, "It is dif-
ficult to discuss the energy
problem without lapsing into
doomsday language. The dan-
ger isclear - it is severe. The
attempt by any country to use
one commodity for political pur-
poses, will inevitably tempt
other countriesvtobuse their
commodities for their own pur-
poses."
FORD WAS in Detroit yes-
terday to. officially open the
six-day conference, which was
attended by about 3,600 dele-
gates from 84 countries around
the world.
Sponsored by the World En-
ergy Conference (WEC), the
convention is designed to "ex-
change ideas and address prob-
lems relating to energy re-
sources and their production,
conversion, transportation and
distribution in relationship to
the needs of mankind and the
protection of the environ ment."
Many of the world's top in-
dustrial executives, government
ministers, scientists, economists
and engineers are attending the
conference. Included in the
long list are U. S. Treasury
S e c r e t a r y William Si-
mon, Sheikh Ahmed Yamani of
Saudi Arabia and Dr. John
Sawhill, Administrator of the
U. S. Federal Energy Agency.

BARGAINING STALLS:
'U' sital interns
threaten .s'lowdown

By DAVID BURHENN
Intern and resident physi-
cians at University Hospital
voted unanimously yesterday to
begin a disruption in services
on October 2 if current contract
negotiations with the Univer-
sity remain unsuccessful.
Members of the House Offic-
ers Association, (HOA) which
represents nearly 500 physi-
cians-in-training at the hospital,
made the decision for a "job
action" after unanimously re-
jecting the University's latest
contract offer, according to
HOA president Dr. Robert Sod-
erstrom.
SODERSTROM was careful

last night to stress that a job
action would mean an interrup-
tion in Hospital services, but
not necessarily a strike.
"A strike involves walking
out of the hospital" he said.
"That would be a trenendous
disservice to the patient popula-
tion. We do not consider our
differences as something to
punish the patients. Our dis-
agreement is with the Univer-
sity."
Sonderstrom, did not however,
rule out the possibility of a
strike in the future.
THE HOA president said the
internes and residents do a

ATTACKS FORD PLAN
Resister asks total amnesty

i

By JO MARCO TTY
Michael is negative.
He didn't vote in the last national elec-
tion, and even i he could, he wouldn't vote
in the next one. Convicted felons can't vote.
After spending twenty months in Milan
Federal Penitentiary for draft resistance,
Michael is at odds with the system.
"I'VE become a pessimist," he said in
his living room on a sunny afternoon. "What
did I really do? I went to jail for some-

people outside, "It's like jail. I mean, an
institution is an institution."
AND THE political system? "It a great
theatre. People go to the polls, and pull a
lever, and the guys with the most levers
pulled get elected, and make laws and
wars. Then along with the wars, where
people get killed, they have selective serv-
ice, and that's slavery. This isn't a free
country - there is no such thing."
But his biggest gripe at the moment is
President Ford's conditional amnesty plan.

Muk tananda greeted,

Indian holy man Swami Baba Mukta-
nanda's arrival was greeted here yes-

the fanfare due royalty.
Sari-robed disciple Joe Ann Kruck-

amid an exuberant stream of chanting
and beatific smiles.
Swami fan Sue Irwin described her
first encounter with the man she en-
