Cobb echoes
Though thetUniversity didn't appoint Jewel Cobb
as Dean of the Literary College, she hasn't been
forgotten in higher circles. The U. S. Senate ap-
pointed Cobb to serve a six year term on the gov-
erning board of the National Science Foundation.
She has also become the first woman to be elected
to the board of directors for The Travelers Corpor-
ation of Hartford.
ROTC situation
The University of Detroit is among 12 colleges
which are disbanding their Reserve Officer Train-
ing Corps (ROTC) the Air Force has announced.
The action is being taken due to "low officer pro-
duction and inability to maintain minimum enroll-
ment standards," an Air Force spokesperson said.
The spokesperson added that there are 150 other
colleges and universities on the waiting list for
ROTC units, and no difficulty is expected in re-
placing the 12 units which will be eliminated by
spring of 1976. The U of D is the only Michigan
college disbanding their program.

Dinosaur eater
The skeletal remains of the largest flying crea-
ture now known have been found in west Texas.
The immense leathery winged reptile, which lived
more than 60 million years ago, had a very long
neck, which suggests it fed on dead dinosaurs,
scientists say. Dubbed the Texas pterosaur, the
creature had a wingspan of 51 feet, larger than
the 38 foot wingspan of an F4 jet fighter, and about
double that of the largest flying creature pres-
ently known. The remains were found by a Uni-
versity of California graduate student in Big Bend
National Park in Brewster County, Texas.
White House views
Susan Ford, President Ford's seventeen-year-old
daughter, is writing a regular magazine column on
her views of life in the White House and other

issues in Seventeen Magazine. The column, en-
titled "White House Diary," will appear in the
April issue of Seventeen. The first article will deal
with press invasions of the Ford family's privacy,
plans to hold her high school prom in the White
House, and male chauvinism. A spokesperson could
not say if Susan is to be paid for her creative en-
deavors. But the Washington Post, on the other
hand, didn't hire her as a summer intern. There's
probably less conflict of interest with Seventeen.

Compromise passed
by key committee
WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Democrats in the House
of Representatives yesterday overwhelmingly voted
against any additional military aid for Cambodia and
South Vietnam, but a key subcommittee later approved
a compromise.
The 189 to 49 vote by the House Democratic caucus
was a serious blow to the administration's hopes of win-
ning more military aid for the tottering Lon Nol govern-
ment in Cambodia.
THE COMPROMISE approved four votes to three by a House
Foreign Affairs subcommittee would give Cambodia $27.5 million
a month for three months if the administration meets certain con-
ditions after each 30-day per- --
This action kept alive at least
temporarily the administra-

cus will vote on the issue today.

PALESTINIAN SYMPATHIZERS yesterday march outside Ra ckham Building protesting the appearance of Israeli President
Ephraim Katzir, who was in Ann Arbor to receive an honorary law degree from the University. Students welcoming Katzir look
on in the background.

With shouts of "Free, Free
Palestine" and "D o w n with
Zionism," about 100 Palestinian
supporters yesterday afternoon
interrupted a speech by Israeli
President Ephraim Katzir at
Rackham Auditorium. One per-
son was arrestedand scores of
protestors were removed from
the lecture hall as University
President Robben Fleming or-
dered Ann Arbor police to break
up the demonstration.
Katzir was appearing to re-
ceive an honorary law degree
from the University. The Israeli
president, a noted biophysicist,
taught here in 1969.
KATZIR SPOKE for several
minutes before the demonstra-
tion began. As he mentioned his
membership in H aga n ah, a

group, the demonstrators began
a half hour of shouted slogans
that forced Katzir to silence.

the demonstrators that they

GEO returns to classrooms

Commerce Secretary Maurice
Stans pleaded guilty yesterday
to five misdemeanor violations
of federal campaign laws, com-
mitted whilehe was raising $60
million for the 1972 re-election
of former President Nixon.
He is the third former mem-
ber of Nixon's cabinet to either
be convicted or plead guilty to
criminal charges. A fourth is
awaiting trial.
STANS, WHO will be 67 next
week. said all five violations
w e r e committed unknowingly
when he served as chairman of
the Finance Committee to Re-
elect the President.
"The violations now disclosed
were not willful," he said, "and
at the time they occurred were
not believed to be violations."
Asst. S p e c i a 1 Prosecutor
Thomas McBride, who nego-
tiated the plea with Stans and
his lawyers over the past sev-
eral months, said two of the
violations were committed "fn
reckless disregard of the cor-
porate source of those funds."

- Campus buildings and streets were with-
out picketers, students and teaching fel-
lows occupied once deserted classrooms,
and the often bitter contract negotiations
ceased. The Graduate Employes Organiza-
tion (GEO) strike has ended.
The suspension of the month-old walkout
came Monday night when the union mem-
bership voted overwhelmingly to begin a
two-day ratification vote after GEO leaders
presented them with a contract settlement.
Should, the vote prove affirmative, and it
appears it will be, the longest strike in the
history of the University will officially end.
MOST UNION members casting ratifica-
tion votes yesterday voiced varying degrees

of satisfaction with the contract proposal.
Whether pleased with the settlement or not,
they were relieved to see an end to the
strike and happy to return to their jobs.
"I wasn't really satisfied with the tui-
tion and wage settlements because I was
previously at another university where the
benefits were much better," asserted a TA
in Romance Languages. "But I voted yes
for the contract because I just want to see
an end to all of this."
Jack Wileden, member of the GEO nego-
tiating team, contended that he has been
receiving similar feedback from GEO
members in response to the settlement.
"It's hard to judge how everyone feels
about the contract," said Wileden, "but
mainly I just think everyone's happy to be

back to work."
AS SHE voted on the contract yesterday,
Psychology TA Laura Levine commented,
"The contract is good. We couldn't get
anything better at this point. The settle-
ment is much stronger than other unions
this young have gotten."
Physical Education TF Howey Zelaznik
wished the job security clause could
have been more stringent but added, "I
didn't really expect the University to tie
its hands with that issue."
Jan Opdyke, a reader in the Geography
department, applauded the settlement be-
cause "under the new contract I'm hoping
to receive TA status. I grade papers and
meet with students whcih is the same

HRP bill could ban
'dum-dum' bullets

The Human Rights Party
(HRP) announced yesterday
that it will introduce several
motions at next Monday's City
Council meeting which, if
passed, would ban the use of the
controversial hollow point or
"dram-dum" bullet and curtail
local police power.
During the session, which has
been dubbed "Police Night,"
HRP will move to:
* Ban local police from us-
ing hollow point bullets, which
inflict the most severe wounds
among all forms of pistol am-

bor's use of hollow point bul-
lets could spark heated debate.
Although the bullets are pro-
hibited by the 1949 Geneva
Convention, police throughout
the U. S. are using them.
According to a report recent-
ly done by the Southwestern In-
stitute of Forensic Sciences in
Dallas, Texas, "The greater
loss of a bullet's kinetic energy
in the body, the greater dam-
age to the tissues, therefore
more severe the wound."
The study went on to ex-
plain that the hollow point bul-
lets lose up to ten times the
kinetic energy of other bullets,

Few students look
into academic files
Counseling records - once secret files that have recently
been partially opened to inspection - have not attracted
hordes of students eager to determine their I.Q. or see how
they impressed their 6th grade teachers.
Charles Judge, Associate Director of the literary college '
(LSA) Academic Counseling says that only "a couple of
hundred" of the 16,000 LSA students have come in to see
their files since they were opened to inspection under the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act in January.
"I GUESS people haven't felt the need to see the mater-
ial," he said. "It takes only one person to come in and see
that there's absolutely nothing there, and then his friends
decide not to bother."
Material open to inspection include high school transcripts,
