Day the ' stood still
It was a frame right out of the science fiction
classic The Day the Earth Stood Still. All over
central campus, from Alice Lloyd Hall to Burton
Tower to the Engin Arch, the clocks stopped at
1:53 a.m. yesterday morning. Well, relax: no
metallic disc has landed in the Di g,noxalien
creature resembling actor Michael Rennie will ask
to "crash" at your house tonight. Time stopped
due to a short-circuited master fuse that controls
and synchronizes nearly 100 clocks on the campus.
According to a staffer at University Safety, the
hands won't start moving again until tomorrow
since "we don't consider this important enough to
bring in the guys to work overtime." Which leads
us to wonder what would happen if alien creatures
did land on the Diag.

Commies and hippies
Commies, black extremists, the Socialist Workers
Party, the New Left and even white i hate" groups
will have top billing in the FBI's latest report,
supposedly scheduled for release tomorrow. The
Washington Star-News announced yesterday that
the agency has conducted a 15-year investigation
of these groups with the authorization of the late
J. Edgar Hoover. Some of the activities of Cointel-
pro, the project's code name, included the use of
civic and religious leaders and organizations to
exert pressure on state and local governments,
employers and landlords to disrupt the groups,
leaks to newspapers and reporters about arrest
records of individuals and groups, and establish-
ment of sham organizations for disruptive purposes.
Dissidents publish
While you're waiting for the remaining volumes
of the Gulag to be published, Alexander Solz-
henitsyn's Paris publisher has announced that the
Russian writer has compiled a new book of essays
on life in the Soviet. The book, written by seven
dissident intellectuals,, will appear at the end of
the month. It will first be published in Russian,
then in English, German and Italian translations.
The book, titled "Out From Under the Boulders,"
will deal with "problems of social and spiritual
life in the Soviet Union," according to the YMCA
press, a Russian-language publishing house. Al-
though three of the authors wish to remain anony-
mous, the other three (besides Solyzhenitsyn) are
mathematician Igor Shafarevich, art historian
Evgeny Barabanov and historian Vadim Borissov.

Write who?
If you're thinking of ripping off an angry letter
to your senator, maybe you'd better hold off
awhile. Odds are pretty good that he or she won't
be there. A quarter of the Senate is now in Europe.
At last count by the U.S. embassies in Europe,
at least 24 of the 100 senators were on the other
side of the Atlantic yesterday. Don't try your
Congress members, either - they could be in
Europe too. The period between election and the
day a new Congress convenes have always been
ripe for junkets-or rather, fact-finding tours-
and this year has been no exception.

Ford to
leae on
WASHINGTON (P)-President
Ford departs today for Japan
and South Korea and a meeting
in the Soviet Union that may
deal with the arms race and
the Middle East war threat.
He will be the first U.S.
president ever to visit Japan
and faces a threat of street
demonstrations like those that
forced cancellation of a 1960
Japanese visit by President
Dwight Eisenhower. Radicals
already have firebombed both
the U.S. and Soviet embassies
in Tokyo.
focused most sharply, however,
on Ford's 24-hour stay in Si-
beria next weekend, when he
will confer with Soviet leader
Leonid Brezhnev.
Ford and Brezhnev differ
sharply on ways to promote a
Middle East peace-a summit
topic certain to escalate in im-
portance against the backdrop
of new war fears.
The United States and Soviet
leaders also must wrestle with
the sluggish search for a new
accord on limiting offensivenu-
clear weapons, a quest that
reached a stalemate when for-
mer President Richard Nixon
visited Moscow last June.
BY HONORING a Nixon com-
mitment to visittJapan in 1974,
Ford is flying to Tokyo at a
time when Premier Kakuei
Tanaka is under heavy fire at
home because of questions rais-
ed about his personal finances.
Street demonstrators are op-
posing Tanaka as well as the
Ford visit.
While acknowledging Tanaka
could fall in the near future,
Japanese diplomatic sources
here argued a successor govern-
ment almost surely would be
controlled by members of Tan-
aka's Social Democratic party.
GLOBAL OIL problems will
be a major topic on the Ford-
Kissinger agenda for Japan, a
nation 99 per cent dependent
on foreign oil, most of it from
the Persian Gulf area.
Ford's nine-day journey also
will take him to South Korea,
a stop that has aroused con-
troversy because of substantial
world opposition to the repres-
sive regime of President Park

Bell nets 166 yards
leads rushing attack
At long last, all the preliminaries are safely out of
the way.
The Michigan Wolverines completed another perfect
pre-Ohio State schedule in stunning fashion yesterday
afternoon at Michigan Stadium, overwhelming the Boil-
ermakers of Purdue in every facet of the game for a 51-0
THE VICTORY means that Michigan will at least tie for the
Big Ten title for the fourth straight year and for the fifth time
in Bo Schembechler's six-year head coaching reign. The Wolver-
ines now stand at 10-0, one game ahead of Ohio State's 9-1 mark.

SPLIT END JIM SMITH (37), vaults high in the air to haul down a Denny Franklin pass in
the first quarter of yesterday's action against Purdue. Smith beat Fred Cooper (42) on this re-
ception, one of two he made in the game. The other was an electrifying 52-yard TD pass and run

missing for the past two weeks,
rolling up 581 yards and 29 first
downs. The Blue defense looked
as impenetrable as ever against
the usually effective Purdue at-
tack, yielding only 185 total
yards and never really coming
close to being scored upon.
MICHIGAN quarterback Den-
nis Franklin had one of his bet-
ter days as he underwent his
final game-situation practice for
the Buckeye clash, connecting
on seven of 12 tosses for 149
yards and a pair of touchdowns,
and adding 30 yards on the
ground. Franklin twisted his
problem ankle late in the third
period but will definitely be
ready to play next week.
Tailback Gordon Bell seemed
to have nailed down the starting
berth next week at this posi-
tion, as he twisted and sped
for 166 yards in 23 carries
through and around the inept
Boilermaker defenders.
Receivers Gil Chapman and
Jim Smith also had fine, after-
noons as Chapman hauled in
five of Franklin's aerials includ-
ing a touchdown strike. Smith
nabbed the other two, one of
which was a 52-yard, bomb for
another score.
MEANWHILE, all five Michi-
gan . defensive linemen turned
in magnificent efforts as they
totally stymied the Boiler rush-
ing attack and put on a big
rush that often thwarted Pur-
due attempts to go to the air.
The defensive secondary of
the Wolverines did its part, too,
effectively containing t h e
"world's greatest receiver,"
sprinter Larry Burton. Michigan
seemingly had little trouble
with a Purdue offense that had
been averaging about 400 yards
per contest.
It was the final home game
for a star-studded cast of 20
Wolverine seniors, including
both Franklin and All-Ameri-
can safety Dave Brown, and the
decisive win means that in
their term at Michigan they
were never beaten at home.

ROME-The World Food Con-
ference declared last night that
the battle against hunger is the
"common responsibility .of all
countries" and agreed to set up
a U.N. agency to direct the
A resolution on thetagency
was approved in committee and
went to the full 123-nation as-
sembly for certain approval in
a late wind-up session.
"EVERY MAkN, woman and
child has the inalienable right
to be free from hunger and
malnutrition," the conference
said in the final debate of the
11-day assembly.
The new agency, to be called
the World Food Council, would
be formed by the U.N. General
Assembly in New York and
have its headquarters in Rome.
Agreed upon after intensive
negotiations between industrial-
ized and Third World countries,
the council would be an um-
brella group directing aid and
investment in food production
in needy nations. It would also
supervise a data-sharing plan
to keep nations up to date on
weather, crop information and
agricultural price fluctuations.
AGREEMENT on the council,
considered hopeless earlier in
the conference, was seen as the
major acheivement in attempts
to map global strategy in the
war on hunger.
"There was s o m e compro-
mise, but it's an effective plan.
We are satisfied," said Edwin
Martin, deputy chief of the
U.S. delegation.
The plan will give teeth to
other food accords already ap-
proved. These include a resolu3
tion to map out aid pledges of
10 million tons of food grains a
year, a resolve to set up inter-
national grain banks and a
data-sharing plan to provide na-
tions with information on crop
conditions, weather and agri-
culture price fluctuations.


Kissinger guarantees
Syrians will not fight

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON-Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger told Is-
raeli officials yesterday he had
assurances from Syria that it
would not attack Israel.
Israeli Ambassador Simcha
Dinitz met for about 90 min-
utes with Kissinger at the State
Department and told reporters

"I'M HAPPY to say that the
assurances that I received from
the secretary of state as con-
veyed to him by our neighbors
indicate that the other side does
not have aggressive intentions."
Dinitz appeared to be joining
with the secretary in trying to
downplay speculation that re-

East were extremely dangerous

Although the University c 1 a i m s that "the
general state of the economy" is the cause for
a dip in black enrollment this term, black ob-
servers point to apathy, poor recruitment efforts,
and failure to publicize financial opportunities
for minorities as the real causes for the drop.
At Thursday's Board of Regents meeting, Op-
portunity Program Director George Goodman
revealed that black enrollment at the University
has declined from 7.3 per cent of the student
body a year ago to 7 per cent this year.
GOODMAN ATTRIBUTED the drop partially to

lies into income brackets above the program's
In spring 1970, after a massive student strike

led by the Black Action Movement (BAM), the
Regents agreed to raise black enrollment to 10
per cent by 1973. When enrollment was dis-
covered to be at 7.3 per cent last year, the board
promised an improvement in the following year.
"Essentially, the University has renegged on
its promise," says Henry Clay, once executive
secretary for the Black Student Union and as a
liaison between BAM and a white students' strike
support group.
CLAY ALSO questions the University's claim
that economic conditions have partially caused
dwindling black enrollment. "I'm sure economics
could play some part in the black enrollment
decrease, but it's not hard to find economic
