one-man show.
Monday Democrats took away
from Mills' committee, and
from him, the important House
function of deciding committee
assignments f o r Democrats.
Mills long has curried favors
from other Democrats in this
role which has added signifi-
cantly to his powers.
The largest newspaper in
Mills home state, the Arkansas
Gazette, yesterday asked Mills
in an editorial to either end his
public indiscretions with the
stripper or resign from office.
"If Mr. Mills cannot forgo his1
public indiscretions, and if he
prefers the life of show busi-
ness to the life on Capitol Hill,
then let him select the formerj
and resign his seat in Congressj
to devote full time to his new

line of work," the newspaper'
One member of the Ways and
Means Committee said .here
was no way Mills could retain
chairmanship of the committee.
"You know that he will not
come back here if he is not
chairman," he said.
Mills said Monday that he was
feeling very weak, and needed
time to regain his strength. He
underwent a back operati m last
year, and his physical and per-
sonal problems have mounted
since then.
On October 7, his relationship
with the stripper, whose off-
stage name is Annabelle Bat-
tistella, hit the nation's head-
lines during an early morning
incident in which she leaped
from Mills' car, which had been
stopped by police, and plunged

into the Tidal Basin, a Potamac
River backwater.
Police had to rescue her and
take Mills home after he
emerged from the car, his nose
bloodied, spectacles shattered,
and apparently intoxicated.
Mills was scheduled to floor
manage a major bill yesterday
that would have exempted from
taxation interest of up to $500
per person for deposits in banks
and other financial institutions.
One aide said Mills threw up
his hands shortly before the bill
was scheduled to be taken up
and said he just could not han-
dle it. The bill was then taken
off the calendar.
Mills, until the Tidal Basin
incident, had a reputation of
never attending social events in
Washington, or of taking part
in the so-called Washington
cocktail circuit.

Japanese politician Takeo MikiI
was approved today as the new4
President of the ruling Liberal-!
Democratic Party (LDP), a po-
sition that automatically makes
him Prime Minister.i
Miki, 67, will formally take
up the top government post at
the start of a special 17-dayl
session of the Diet (parilament)
next Monday.
HE REPLACES outgoing]
Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaya,
who announced his resignation
on November 26 to take moral!
responsibility for the political
chaos arising out of questions
about his private and public fi-
nancial affairs.
Miki's confirmation as party
president in place of Tanaka
came at a meeting today of!
LDP members of both houses
of the Diet.
Under party rules, Miki could

Miki told the meeting of party
Diet members he would ser-
io'asly tackle the difficult prob-
lems of inflation and recession
and work for social justice, al-
though this might take time to
He also said it was natural
that Japan should co-operate in-
ternationally in cutting oil con-
sumption in the immediate fu-
t're and in conversing energy
resources for the benefit of all
mankind in the years to come.
In seeking the co-operation of
all party members, Miki said
he believed a drastic overhaul
of the LDP was necessary to
restore public confidence in it.
A political idealist who has
served continuously in the Diet
since he became the youngest
member ever to join it at the
age of 30 in 1937, Miki said he
had his own proposals for over-
all revisions of the LDP presi-

tional election system and ways

selling of term papers.
The University took legal ac-
tion against Write-On, and the
company was later forced out
of business by a court order.
NO MICHIGAN law forbids
the sale of term papers, but
other states, including Wiscon-
sin and Pennsylvania, have
adopted tough legisaltion bar-
ring such action.
A decision in August by the
Office of the Administrative
Law Judges of the Postal S; rv-3
ice ruled that mail order term
paper organizations could be
found guilty of mail fraud.
"Such false representation by,
the students to their schools, is,
nevertheless, the means by
which the c o m p a n y obtains
money from students. If stu-
dents purchasing the paprersG
could not represent the papers
falsely as their own work for
academic credit, the company
would not be able to sell itsk

Dotting his informal talk with
George Pierrot-style vignettes
Fleming continually speculated
on the effects massive indus-
trialization will have on the edu-
cational system. "One is con-
stantly asking where the re-
search scientists are being
trained. The answer seems to
be 'they are not'."
Fleming noted that the simple
act of gathering information
was difficult due to translation,
cultural and philosophical dif-
ferences with his hosts. So
Fleming said he was forced to
conclude that despite the effic-
iency of a central planning per-
spective "there's no real way
to assess how satisfied the stu-
dents are."
IN THE question and answer
session which followed his talk
Fleming was challenged by stu-
dents who rejected his notion
