EMU strike?
Teachers at Eastern Michigan University (EMU)
are moving closer to a possible strike with that
school's administration over wage and non-eco-
nomic demands. The bargaining council of the
American Association of University Professors, the
EMU teachers' union, will vote today on whether
to call a strike. If the council supports such action,
the question will be put to the faculty at large
some time next week.
Black studies
University sociologist Dr. Richard English has
charged some of his colleagues with bias in their
efforts to study the black American family and
asked them to forget about the 'heritage of slav-
ery.' He asserts that the study of black families
has "been* characterized by myths, stereotypes,
and unvalidated generalizations." English believes
that slavery, if anything had a unifying effect on
the black family. The focus of sociological studies
in the past has "seldom been on marriage and
family, but on race relations, black personalities,
aggression, and oppression.

October
WASHINGTON (A) - The
government had a double dose
of bad economic news for
Americans yesterday. It said
consumer prices rose nine-
tenths of one per cent in Octo-
ber, while workers' spendable
earnings fell three-tenths of one
per cent.
Higher prices for food, auto-
mobiles, clothing and housing
were behind the increases in
consumer prices, the Labor De-
partment said.
THE October rise meant that
prices of things most Americans
buy were 10.6 per cent higher
than in January and 12.2 per
cent above a year earlier. The
increase for all of last year was
8.8 per cent.
Although the October increase
in consumer prices was smaller
than in September and August,
it was higher than normal and
showed that inflation, especially
in food prices, still reins un-
checked in the economy.
While prices rose, wages fell,
at least those wages that work-
ers can spend after taxes. With
the three-tenths of one per cent
decline in October, real spend-
able earnings were 4.9 per cent
below a year earlier.
IN OTHER economic develop-
ments:
" Party leaders in the Senate
and House presented separate
recommendations to help the
nation's economy. The proposals
by House Speaker Carl Albert
and Senate Democratic Leader
Mike Mansfield included tax re-
vision, publicly financed jobs
for the unemployed, standby
wage and price controls and ef-
forts to alleviate credit short-
ages;
* General Motors said it will
suspend production atbnine of
its 22 U. S. auto assembly plants
for from one to two weeks in
December.
* Treasury Secretary Wil-
liam Simon said oil prices may
come down despite what he
called the "threat of extortion"
posed by world oil exporters.
* Interior Secretary Rogers
Morton told a congressional
committee he would support a
U.S. limit on oil exports if man-
datory fuel conservation mea-
sures are needed; and

Court ruling likely
to cost 'U' Millions
By DAVID BURHENN
The State Supreme court has ruled that out of state
students enrolled between May 1972 and July 1973 may be
eligible for tuition refunds.
The move, which could cost the University millions
of dollars, enables students to apply for rebates equalling
the difference between in-state tuition and the higher
non-resident fees they paid during that period.

The unanimous decision
upheld a May 1973 ruling by
Court Judge William Ager that
struck down the University's
old residency regulations - six
months state residence without
class attendance - and ordered
refunds for some 9,000 students
who may have been denied in-I
state status illegally.
THE University, which chang-
ed its residency rules to con-
form with a 1973 U. S. Supreme
Court ruling, had successfully
appealed the refund portion of
Ager's ruling in the State Court
of Appeals.
Local attorney Arthur Carpen-
ter, who brought the original
class action suit on behalf of six1
students before Ager in 1972,'
then appealed to the State Su-
preme Court, which ordered the a
refunds.
The high court's ruling en-t
ables those students covered by
the decision to apply for resi-
dency under a special set of
rules, similar, but probably not t
as stringent as those now used 1
by the University to establish t
in-state status.
IF THE students, or former
students qualify for residency,j
they will be eligible for the re-
funds, plus five percent interest1
on the amount they paid be-,
tween May 1972 and July 1973.
University General Counsel
Roderick Daane is currently
studying the possibility of ap-1
peal, but indicated yesterday he
"hasn't really decided" whether 1
to challenge the decision.<
Daane speculated that an ap-
peals could be filed with either
the state or United States Su-{
preme Courts.
HOWEVER, the State Supreme
Court made its ruling Wednes-
day without even hearing argu-
ments on the merits of the case,
and granting of a new hearing
on the appeal would be consid-
ered unlikely.
If no appeal is made, the 1

delays
funding
ret uest
By GORDON ATCHESON
The Environmental Research
Institute of Michigan (ERIM)
has postponed for at least two
years a request for county as-
sistance in funding the com-
pany's proposed move from Wil-
low Run Airport to a site within
the city.
Earlier this year ERIM, a
non-profit corporation asked the
Washtenaw County Board of
Commissioners to issue $3 mil-
lion in revenue bonds to finance
the move.
C 0 U N T Y bonding would
have provided one of the lowest
interest rates for borrowing the
needed money. But a number
of community groups have loud-
ly protested the county's in-
volvement because ERIM con-
ducts classified military re-
search.
In a memorandum to the
board, dated November 15,
ERIM President Dr. William
Brown thanks the county for its
consideration of the bonding pro-
posal but indicates the organiz-
ation will seek funding from
other sources.
Brown, however, holds open
the possibility that ERIM might
ask county help in 1976. "Be-
tween now and the next sched-
uled County election in May
1976 many aspects of the situa-
tion may change," he stated.
ON NOV. 6, the county com-
missioners decided to put the
bonding question before the vot-

Democratic presidential race
WASHINGTON (A)-Sen. Walter Mondale (D-Minn.) withdrew
yesterday from contention for the 1976 Democratic presidential
nomination, saying he has discovered he does not havethe
"overwhelming desire" to be president.
"To begin a campaign without a total commitment on my
part is unfair to everyone," Mondale told a hastily called news
conference.
"I ADMIRE those with the determination to do what is re-
quired to seek the presidency, but I have found that I am not
among them," Mondale said.
The Minnesota Democrat said he does not regret his explora-
tory efforts over the past year and said he hopes the experience
makes him a better senator. x..a''
Mondale announced his decision in these words: "I have de-
cided that I will not be a candidate for the Democratic presi-

TAPES PLAYED AT TRIAL

Nixon warned early of charges

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - A deeply
worried Richard Nixon was told
in April 1973 that John Dean's
disclosures might lead to his im-
peachment "on the ground that
you committed a crime." Nixon
reacted by working out a story
to protect himself.
"I have got to put the wagons
up around the President," Nix-
on was heard telling top aide

cover-up business was pure Mit-
chell," Nixon said.
The playing of four record-
ings, none made public pre-
viously, ended the government's
use of tapes as its chief witness
against Haldeman, John Ehr-
lichman, Mitchell, Robert Mar-
dian and Kenneth Parkinson -
all charged with conspiring to
cover up White House involve-
ment in the Watergate affair.

jury Ehrlichman told Nixon, "I
think it's entirely conceivable
that if Dean is totally out of
control and if matters are not
handled adroitly that you could
get a resolution of impeachment
in the Senate. I got to thinking
about it last night, uh, on the
ground you committed a crime."
In the tapes played at the
trial, there was some confu-

Oh, wrong on clemency."
"No," said Haldeman "you
said getting the money was
wrong."
Haldeman also told the Presi-
dent that at one point during
the discussion of Howard Hunt's
demand for $120,000, the tape
showed Nixon responding,

easy to deliver. And trying to
