NIXON ASKS EXEMPTION

IUSEE &S HAPPnCALL..y
Marching madness
There's a double treat in store for football fans
today, when both the Michigan Marching Band and
the Michigan State Band perform at half-time. The
MSU show will open with "Spartan Suds," an ar-
rangement combining themes from various beer
commercials, and close with a rendition of "Then
Came You." The finale will feature the unusual
sounds of a synthesizer. The Michigan half time
show is being kept a secret but will allegedly be
based on "bugs and insects." It is known, however,
that the show will feature the 70-member trumpet
section.
Election procedure
Student Government Council members have be-
gun to outline voting procedure for the upcoming
Council elections. It was announced at Thursday
night's SGC meeting that all ID cards will be mark-
ed at the polling place with indelible ink to prevent
people from voting twice. Students are asked to
abide by the honor system and vote in the proper
constituencies. Ballots will be checked to make
sure votes are cast for only one constituency. The
election will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Thursday of next week.

ing for, students to fill vacancies on various com-

Hart
endorses
Reut he r
By MARY HARRIS
Senator Phillip Hart (D-Mich.)
endorsed congressional candi-
date John Reuther last night,
speaking at a beer bash at
Democratic party headquarters.
Arriving over an hour late,
Hart addressed an enthusiastic
crowd of around 75 inebriates.
He told themahe saw Reuther
as part of a new spirit in
politics.
"THE NATION desperately
needs people who can move the
levers of government a little
faster than they have been
moved, in the past," he said.
He added that the nation would
be less pessimistic if it could
see, as he did, the optimism
and enthusiasm with w h i c h
y o u n g e r voters approached
politics.
Hart was introduced by Reu-
ther himself, who led off with
a spirited attack on his oppo-
nent, Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Ann
Arbor).
In Reuther's words, "Marvin
Esch has very little principle,
very little character." He at-
tacked Esch's refusal to debate
him, and pointed out that 75
per cent of congressional votes
cast by Esch in the last two
years have followed Nixon Ad-
ministration policy.
REUTHER WENT on to cri-
ticize Esch's abuse of the
congressional franking privilcge
which allows him to mail free
literature to his constituents.
"And yet," said Reuther,
"Esch will criticize me when I
seek contributions from labor
unions." Reuther contended. he
had no option but to seek labor
money when the incumbent
abused his privileged positicn.
HART FOLLOWED his speech
with a question and answer ses-
sion. He fielded an irate ques-
tion as to why he would not
disclose his income tax returns,
explaining that he filed a joint
return with his wife, who has
considerable income from trust
funds which she did not wish
to make public.
He noted, however, that he
had revealed every source of
income he had had since 1962.
In response to another ques-
tion, Hart criticized President
Ford's proposed five per cent
income tax surcharge as in-
equitable. He said the figure of
$7,500 was too low a point to
begin applying the surtax.

Nine women three
men pass screening
WASHINGTON (R - A predominantly middle-aged
jury of nine women and three men was chosen yesterday
to decide whether five Nixon White House and campaign
associates joined in a criminal conspiracy to cover-up the
Watergate affair.
Eight of the four jurors selected were black and four
were white. They were painstakingly drawn from a cross
section of the Washington community in the ninth day
of extraordinarily intensive screening and were admon-
ished by the judge to try the case "without bias, preju-
dice or sympathy."
THE DEFENDANTS, John Mitchell, H. R. "Bob" Haldeman,

SENATOR GEORGE McGOVERN (D-S.D.) campaigns for congressional candidate John Reuther
at a Democratic rally yesterday in Hill Aud. McGovern spoke on a number of current issues be-
fore a crowd of 1,500 and met criticism of his role in the Wounded Knee incident from demon-
strators.

John Ehrlichman, Robert Mar-
dian and Kenneth Parkinson,
stood and faced the jury box
as the jurors raised their hands
in oath.
With the swearing-in came
also the release of documents
filed under seal recently with
the court.
They included:
0 Motions by lawyers for for-
mer President Richard Nixon
asking that subpoenas demand-
ing his in-person testimony be
dismissed because Nixon's
health will not permit travel for
three to six months:
* A bid by Ehrlichman for
a separate trial when Nixon is
able to testify, either in person
or through a video-taped deposi-
tion that would be shown to
jurors; and
0 A motion by Haldeman,
asking that the trial be sus-
pended, to await the Nixon tes-
timonv. The motion said Halde-
man intended to subpoena the
former President.
THE EHRLICHMAN motion,
filed Sert. 30, was denied by
U. S. District Judge John Sirica
the following day. Haldeman's
motion, filed Wednesday, has
not been ruled upon.
Both men, the No. 1 and No. 2
aides in the Nixon White House,
claim Nixon is "a material and
indispensable witness in this
case" and that he alone has
personal knowledge of facts
that will help the defendants.
By the time the papers were
unsealed, the new jurors were
at their homes, accompanied by
U. S. marshals, packing belong-
ings for a three to four month
trial.
B E G I N N I N G last night,
they were housed at a down-
town Washington hotel, two
miles from the courthouse.
The government, which also
had subpoenaed Nixon, argued
that the trial should proceed
and that questions about his tes-
timony - including taking a
deposition - can be resolved
later.
Citing the phlebitis that put
Nixon into a hospital for 11 days
recently, his lawyers said, "It
is clear Mr. Nixon cannot com-
ply with the subpoena in the
immediate future without im-
pairing this physical condition
and creating a potentially very
serious risk to his health."

House kills
Senate aid
extension;
veto seen
WASHINGTON (R) - Con-
gress abandoned its plan to re-
cess yesterday night for cam-
paigning because of President
Ford's certain veto of its cut-
off of U. S. military aid to Tur-
key over Cyprus.
House and Senate leaders
agreed at a hastily called con-
ference to come back next week
to vote on overriding the veto
and to take up other bills for at
least three days.
FORD'S VETO of the Turkish
aid cutoff was assured after the
House killed a Senate-passed
resolution to delay the cutoff for
60 days to allow more time for
negotiating a Turkish troop cut
or withdrawal from Cyprus.
Congress' leaders and the
White House tried to work out
a compromise 45-day delay
rather than 60 but opponents of
the Turkish aid rejected it.
Democratic Leader Thomas
O'Neill told the House that
Ford's veto "is expected over
the weekend" and announced
the House would reconvene
Tuesday rather than adjourn as
planned until after the Nov. 7
elections.
CONGRESS HAS no choice
but to act on the veto. The cut-
off is in a stop-gap continuing
resolution several agencies need
for legal spending authority -
which expired Sept. 30 - until
Congress approves their regu-
lar appropriation bills.
The delay had been rejected,
187 to 171, after Republican
Leader John Rhodes told the
House that without the delay
Ford would "definitely veto"
the Turkish aid cutoff.
Congress voted earlier this
week to cut off military aid to
Turkey until Ford certifies "sub-

Student

protest

Waves of young people shouting slogans for the
release of imprisoned students and a liberalized
constitution battled policewyesterday at Korea Uni-
versity in Seoul. It was a second consecutive day
of violence. About 1,500 students tried to break
through police lines and move off campus but were
driven back as police fired round after round of
tear gas. No arrests or serious injuries were re-
ported. The students attempted to march onto the
capital's streets after proclaiming a manifesto that
demanded the release of prisoners jailed for anti-
government activity, freedom of the press and sus-
pension of campus surveillance.
'75 predictions
A food shortage, a bone-chilling winter and a
searing summer are in store forg1975, according
to the Old Farmer's Almanack, which has been
predicting American weather with a claim of 80
per cent accuracy for 182 years. The 183rd annual
edition of the almanac - not to be confused with
The Farmers' Almanac, a mere 158 years old -
says, "Mother Nature is still in charge and we
only try to forecast what is already ordained."
Last year's almanac predicted the drought in sev-
eral areas of the country and the mild winter of
1974. The almanac's weather tables, which begin
with November, predict a generally warm Thanks-
giving and a cold Christmas, even in Florida, for
1974. The Old Farmer's Almanack's prediction by
"Abe Weatherwise" use a secret formula devel-
oped by its first editor and take into account sun
spots, moon phases, jet streams and ocean cur-
rents.
