Pilot TFs join strike
Sixteen of the 17 Pilot Program resident fellows yes-
terday passed a resolution in support of the tuition
strike. Specifically, they called for a reevaluation of
the tuition rates, adequate financial aid for all students
who need it, re-establishment of in-state status for all
teaching fellows, and a list of other demands, including
"significant student involvement in all administrative
Dog's owners sought
The small dog who was a victim of a hit-and-run cyclist
on the Diag Tuesday is reported resting comfortably at
the Dun Vegan Animal Clinic and will probably be re-
leased today. There's one problem, however. It seems no
one has claimed the poor little pup, and the man who
saved him has no idea who to return him to. The dog is
part-terrier, 16 to 18 inches tall and from one to three
years old. He is tan with black ears. If you suspect this
might be your dog, please call Dr. Harper at the clinic
and let him know. (Ph. 761-7523).
Regents to meet
The Regents hit town today and tomorrow for this
month's docket of meetings-several closed, a few open.
Today the Regents will hear a public comments session
on the subject of public disclosure of salaries of Univer-
sity employes. Tomorrow the board is expected to vote
on a motion submitted by Regent Gerald Dunn (R-Lan-
sing) which would require the University to disclose its
salary lists. Also slated for tomorrow's public meeting
is a vote on formal approval of the recent tuition in-
crease and this year's University budget, both okayed by
telephone vote last month. The meetings will take place
in the Regents' Meeting Room, first floor Ad. Bldg., at
11:00 a.m. both days.
Frat burglar nabbed
Two Phi Gamma Delta fraternity members received
minor knife wounds early yesterday morning as they
surprised and helped apprehend a prowler. According to
city Police Chief Walter Krasny, the two, Michael Sta-
niec and Edward Neff, were awakened around 5 a.m.
to discover a would-be burglar in Neff's room. They
attempted to subdue the man and received relatively
minor cuts. The prowler, identified as Tyrone Rich-
ardson, 23, was finally takeninto custody by police.

UA W-Chrysler detente
The United Auto Workers and Chrysler reached agree-
ment on a new contract to cover 10,500 white collar work-
ers, bringing all 127,500 UAW members at Chrysler un-
der tentative new agreements. The white collar pact was
not officially announced, but top officials of the two main
locals involved, and a union spokesman said agreement
had been reached and a ratification vote was set for
today. Details of the pact were not announced. The un-
ion's Chrysler Copncil met meanwhile to approve the
contract agreed on earlier for 117,000 assembly line
workers, and send it to the rank and file for ratification.
Sextuplets in danger
Doctors and nurses in Denver worked to combat a
lung disease in three of the remainig five Stanek sex-
tuplets, born Sunday night, after the smallest of the six
babies, Julia, died from the illness, hyaline membrane
disease. Catherine and Nathan Stanek were given blood
transfusions overnight and Wednesday. Catherine was
listed in poor but improving condition at Colorado Gen-
eral Hospital and Nathan was in poor condition. Steven,
the third infant with symptoms of the disease, was re-
ported in fair condition but improving. Jeffrey Stanek's
condition dropped slightly from good to fair, doctors
said, and John was still in good condition.
More silence
Lt. James J. Pelosi, who graduated from West Point
in June after enduring 19 months of a now-outlawed
punishment called silence, says he is still shunned by

some of his comrades. "I thought I would leave the non-
sense that went on at West Point back at West Point,"
said Pelosi, a second lieutenant who is undergoing basic
officer training at Ft. Benning, Ga., along with 150 class-
mates from the U.S. Military Academy. "But other peo-
ple apparently, didn't feel that way," he said in an inter-

By AP and Reuter
A spokesman for President Nixon
strongly denied yesterday that the
White House is putting any kind of
pressure on Vice President Spiro
Agnew to resign.
Deputy White House Press Sec-
retary Gerald Warren labeled as
false news reports that say or hint
"a disposition by the White House
or the people in the White House
to force the resignation of the vice
president, or that the White House
is exerting pressure on the vice
president to resign" or that the
White House has been the source
of stories that Agnew was think-
ing about resigning.
EARLIER IN the day, however,
Vic Gold, former press secretary
to Agnew, charged that top White
House aides Melvin Laird and l



Sources claim White House pressure

Alexander Haig Jr. were encour-
aging rumors and reports about
Agnew's legal troubles so that
stories about Agnew would over-
shadow the Watergate scandal.
"This is all calculated by the
White House toukeeptthe Agnew
story alive," Gold said in an in-
terview. "I'm blaming the White
House at the highest level. Mr.
Haig and Mr. Laird.
"It is my contention that this
stuff about the vice president is
a great distraction from the Wat-
ergate and the White House is de-
lighted with it.

"Isn't it odd that three weeks
ago the country was talking about
the President resigning and now
they're talking about the vice pres-
ident resigning? Some people may
think that's a coincidence. Some
people think that storks bring ba-
bies. I'm not that naive."
current press secretary, acknowl-
edged that certain individuals at
the White House might be encour-

new's possible resignation, but he
said he thought that anyone who
believed that this reflected offic-

regard it as a conscious concoc-

yesterday that one of Nixon's as-
sistants was reported by sources
with excellent access to the White
House to have said flatly that Ag-
new must go.


Another aide was known to have
made suggestions to columnists
that the subject of Agnew's de-
parture from the Administration
might be appropriate for specula-
tion, the newspaper said.
A SPOKESMAN for Agnew again
rejected speculation that Agnew
might resign, and his close friends
maintained he intended to finish
his second term as vice president
and that he would be proven inno-
cent of accepting illegal payments.
But there has been increasing
evidence in recent weeks that Nix-
on and Agnew - who in the past

has complained he had little to do
withinthe Administration - were
growing apart.r

by a reporter that his refusal to
comment on the resignation spec-
ulation could be interpreted as a
"kiss of death" for Agnew, War-
ren said he refused to comment no

Nixon and Agnew have not met
privately since the news of Ag-
new's alleged involvement in graft
first surfaced. Many White House
observers believe Nixon would like
John Connally to become vice
president, as a way of advancing
the Texan's drive toward the GOP
presidential nomination in 1976.

For a while, it looked like Sly might be up to his old tricks:
with only a few days remaining before the first scheduled
Ann Arbor concert of Sly and the Family Stone, local sponsors
and University officials were still sweating over the contract
for the use of Hill Auditorium.
But Vice President for Student Services Henry Johnson
and promoter Ron Palmerlee emerged smiling from a round
of eleventh-hour negotiations last night to announce that Sly

Speaking for the court, CSJ

THE JUNTA'S decision to accept
foreign investment in the big five
copper mines - Chquicamata, El
Teniente, El Salvador, Exotica and
Andina (Rio Blanco) - indicated
that the copper industry was about
to be de-nationalized.
The U.S. Kennecott, Anaconda
and Cerro corporations owned the
mines before the Christian Demo-
