Pornpidou meets Mao
French President Georges Pompidou and Chairman
Mao Tse-Tung held a two hour meeting last night at
Mao's residence in Peking's Forbidden City, a French
spokesman reported. The meeting with Mao, which was
kept secret from journalists covering the president's
week-long visit, was twice as long as hat between
Mao and President Nixon - the last Western leader to
Nixon's taxes: 'no comment'
The White House refused again yesterday to say
whether President Nixon paid federal incomes taxes in
1970 and' 1971. Using almost precisely the same words
he employed on Tuesday, Deputy Press Secretary Gerald
Warren repeated, "I am not going to discuss the Presi-
dent's income taxes. I think that's a personal -matter,
and I'm just not going to discuss it." The question arose
after the Baltimore Sun reported on Tuesday that Nixon
apparently had paid no income taxes in 1970 -and 1971
because his deductions for interest, real estate taxes
and the donation of his vice presidential papers to the
National Archives exceeded his annual salary of $200,-
South African police shot and killed 12 black workers
during a labor riot in a gold mine near Johannesburg.
The incident that ended yesterday was the most serious
black-white confrontation under South Africa's apartheid
regime since the 1960 Sharpesville shooting. Another 27
Africans were reported injured, two of them seriously,
and one policeman was hurt. The disturbance, said to
have involved many of the 1,000 machine operators,
climaxed a week-old pay and job classification dispute.
Chrysler Corp. has fired some 50 workers at its
Mack Avenue stamping plant for participating in a wild-
cat shutdown of the facility Aug. 14, sources said yester-
day. The sources at the plant confirmed the number
of dismissals, saying the workers were notified by tele-
gram several days after they forced the closure of
the plant for 27 hours. The sources said the workers
were identified by plant supervisory personnel at the
factory. A Chrysler Corp. spokesman refused to disclose
any information about dismissals at the plant. He said
the company has a policy of not discussing disciplinary
actions against workers.
The third bomb blast in 48 hours exploded in one
of London's most crowded shopping streets yesterday and
injured six persons. The shopping-bag bomb blew up in
Oxford Street, at offices of the Prudential Assurance
Company. The explosion. shattered the windows of a

were office girls hit by flying glass. Scotland Yard
spokesmen said none of the six injured was in serious

coup which toppled the Marxist
government of Salvador Allende in

But the coup was postponed for
a day to complete final plans with

President Allende upset the
United States by nationalizing U.S.

exchanges and other properties.
HOWEVER, administration sour-
ces went out of their way today to
try to dispel any impression that
the United States had deliberately
stood by while Allende'sgovern-

was purely an internal matter.

President Lee Gill, who originally
called for the strike in a speech to
incoming freshmen last week, pro-
vided the highlight of the evening
when he announced that President
Robben Fleming and Vice-presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Allan
Smith would be meeting with him
to discuss the tuition controversy.
Gill said that Smith would meet
with him today to "supply me with
straight dope on the tuition hike."
The SGC president said that his
session with Fleming would take
place on Tuesday.
"SOME PEOPLE", Gill said,
"have begun to hear rumblings that
this (strike) might be big."
Gill also announced that some
2,000 signatures have so far been
collected on petitions pledging sup-
port for the strike. SGC officials

University Housing Director John Feldkamp yesterday told a group
of 50 freshmen who have not yet been placed in campus dormitories
that the University "will not leave anyone stranded."
The encouraging words came at a meeting of the students-who' have
been temporarily quartered at East Quad and Bursley Hall-with Feld-
kamp yesterday morning.
AT EAST QUAD, the homeless freshmen have become third per-
sons in double rooms, but at Bursley they have not fared so well.
Storage rooms, and in one case, an over-sized linen closet, have been
pressed into service as student habitats.
Feldkamp says that the roomless students are being moved into
University housing as soon as space becomes available. It is likely,
however, that all of the students will not find living quarters by Satur-
day, at which time they will be required to leave the temporary
ACCORDING TO FELDKAMP, the University has arranged to
lodge those who remain without rooms, at the Michigan Union or the
Bell Tower Hotel and also to help subsidize the cost of such a stay.
But he cautioned that his office has no commitment to those who
failed to return their housing applications by Aug. 1.
FELDKAMP BLAMED the housing problem on increased enroll-
ment. "We have no figures yet, but it seems as though an increased
enrollment has simply meant a larger number of housing applications.

journalism credit ext
By CINDY HILL
Students opting to take Jour-
nalism 301 by examination in place
of the regular four-credit course
may be in for a hassle.
Although the journalism has de-
signed the test and scheduled it
for Saturday, just how the exam
will be graded and credit trans-
ferred ,onto transcripts, and even
how much the examination will
cost, remain a mystery.
The credit-by-exam program was
approved by the literary college
faculty in January.
The journalism department was
one of the first in the college to
adopt credit-by-exam, working
throughout the summer to develop
an eight-hour test for Journalism
301, a beginning writing course.

day and the registration deadline
at 5 p.m. today, the University has
yet to establish basic administra-
tive guidelines for the credit-by-

Neither does anyone know how
the grade will be noted on the
transcript, how the grade will be
averaged in with others, or even
what constitutes a passing grade.
While the journalism department
does not know if a fee will be col-
lected for the exam, the Office of
Academic Affairs said there will
be one, although how or when it
will be collected, and how much it
will be, has not been determined.
The dozen or so students regis-
tered for the exam, according to
the journalism department, have
not yet been notified that there is
to be a fee at all.
"Quite frankly, we won't have all
the answers' by Saturday," said
Ernest Zimmerman, assistant to
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan Smith.
