ERIM action
The Ad Hoc Committee to Stop ERIM War Re-
search will attempt to place the ERIM (Environ-
mental Research in Michigan) bonding proposal
before the voters if the plan is approved by the
County Board on November 6. The committee will
have 45 days to gather nearly 7,000 signatures in
Washtenaw County in order to place the proposal
on the ballot. In addition to the ballot proposal,
the committee has decided to investigate the pos-
sibility of legally challenging ERIM's tax exempt
status. The committee plans to hold a rally against
ERIM on November 6 at 6 p.m. at the County
Halloween rain
It was raining pumpkins on I-23 Tuesday night,
according to state police from the Ypsilanti post.
Troopers said they are searching for vandals who
dropped the overgrown vegetables from bridges
in Pittsfield and York Townships. At least three
motorists claimthey were bombarded by the
pumpkins, but no one was reported injured.
We incorrectly reported yesterday that the
Human Rights Party candidate for state repre-
sentative, Bob Alexander, supports the m a s s

5 ballot. He actually opposes the measure.

Bangladesh visitor
Henry Kissinger arrived in Bangladesh yester-
day for his first look at the starving country he
predicted three years ago would become an "in-
ternational basket case." Bangladesh officials were
expected to use Kissinger's 20-hour visit to put
forward a case for emergency economic and foo
aid. Foreign Minister Kamal Hossain implied the
request publicly, telling the American Secretary
of State bluntly at a banquet: "Our people are
prey to starvation."
The Guiness Book of Records, heading for a
best-selling record of its own, came of age yester-
day with a 21st edition listing new marks in every-
thing from pizzas to parenthood. They claim is it
now poised to overtake Dr. Benjamin Spock's
"Baby and Child Care", as the world's all-time
top-selling copyright book. The new edition is ex-
pected to sell close to a million copies over the
next 12 months. It all began in the 1950's when
two bosses of the Guiness brewery agreed that a

trustworthy book was needed to settle the kind of
arguments that tend to break out in bars late at
night over record performances in a constantly
record-breaking world.

give prognosis yet
LONG BEACH, Calif. QP-Former President Richard
Nixon almost died after going into shock following sur-
gery for phlebitis, his former White House press secretary
revealed yesterday.
"There is no doubt that we almost lost President
Nixon yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon," Ronald Ziegler
told an impromptu news conference at the hospital where
Nixon is being treated.
NIXON'S DOCTORS have side-stepped questions as to whether
Nixon's life was in danger during the crisis on Tuesday.
Nixon was still on the critical list yesterday. f
Dr. John Lungren, Nixon's personal physician, said the former
president had shown improvement. He said internal bleeding,

which triggered the shock, had
apparently stopped.
Blood for transfusions was set
aside in case bleeding recurred.
Lungren said that although
Nixon's vital signs were stable,
it was too early to make a
prognosis on his condition.
ZIEGLER said, "I know that
President Nixon has not lost
his will to live . .. he's a man
of great strength and great cour-
age, and he will pull out of it."
Ziegler said Nixon's condition
after he went into "vascular
shock"-collapse of blood cir-
-"ation-for three hours was so
serios that "I think it's for-
tnnate that President Nixon was
in the intensive care unit.
"It's also fortinate that the
dotors were handy and could go
tsrongh the necessary proced-
dres to deal with the president's
Anr'dition and pull him out of
what was n .a very serious
NTXON was originally placed
in the intensive care ward, on
tyre ton floor of,the hospital, for
hiq security and privacy.
Zieluer said neither he nor
any other aides have been per-
ngtted to visit Nixon, who has
been isolated from everyone but
hi family and doctors.
The crisis occurred soon after
Ziegler left the hospital Tues-
day, "and the doctors were so
busy dealing with the presi-
dent's condition that I did not
receive notification until Ap.m.
when I happened to call the
hospital," Ziegler said.
OF NIXON'S wife Pat and
daughters Tricia and Julie, who
flew here Tuesday night, Ziegler
said, "I think the best way to
describe the family's state of
mind is as one of very deep
He said the three women were
staying at a private residence
near the hospital on the advice
of Lungren, "so they would not

Magruder tells cover-up


ruder testified yesterday that
early in the Watergate cover-up
he was assured that then Presi-
dent Nixon was pleased at the
way Magruder was keeping the
true story of the scandal from
coming out.
In the second day of his testi-
mony as a prosecution witness
at the Watergate cover-up trial,
Magruder said he was promised
financial help if anything went
wrong for plans for him to lie
to federal grand juries in the
summer and fall of 1972.
MAGRUDER, formerly the

deputy director of Nixon's 1972
re-election campaign, said he
once volunteered that he'd take
the blame for the June 17, 1972,
break-in at Democratic National
Committee headquarters but
was turned down by senior of-
ficials at the White House and
the re-election committee.
Magruder now is serving a
minimum 10-month prison term
for his own part in the cover-up.
Generally, he recounted a
story told before in testimony
before the Senate Watergate
committee and in his book, "An
American Life; One Man's Road
to Watergate."

MAGRUDER told of prepar-
ing an elaborate cover story for
federal investigators to account
for $250,000 approved for use
by Watergate burglar Gordon
Liddy, then an official of the
re-election committee.
Magruder said former White
Housecounsel John Dean came
to his office shortly before Ma-
gruder was to give his perjured
testimony and told Magruder:
"Everyone at the White House
and the committee, particularly
the President, the President was
particularly pleased at my ef-
forts at keeping the truth of
Watergate from coming out."

L 0 0 K I N G vigorous and
healthy for a man coming out
of prison, Magruder quoted
Dean as saying that if any-
thing went awry, he would be
given money just like Liddy,
Watergate burglar E. Howard
Hunt and the other five original
Watergate defendants.
Magruder said he was later
given similar assurances from
defendant and former Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell

Unlike many Republican officeholders,
Governor William Milliken has not been
tainted with the Watergate plague. In-
stead, during his six years in the state's
top post, he has acquired a reputation
for being faultlessly honest and ethical.
Running for re-election against Demo-
cratic gubernatorial h o p e f u 1 Sander
Levin, Milliken is now fighting to keep
his head above water in the tight race.
The most recent polls give Levin a
slight edge over the Republican incum-
bent with about 10 per cent of the voters
still undecided.
