Strike support grows
The tuition strike gained another shot in the arm
yesterday as two more organizations - the Undergrad-
uate Political Science Association and graduate students
in American Culture - added their endorsements to the
proposed action. The poli sci undergrads, in addition
to endorsing the strike, called on the University to "ease
residency requirements for- out of state students." At
a noon meeting 20 grad students in American Culture
voted to back the strike charging that the tuition in-
crease threatens to "exclude all middle and lower middle
class students" from the University. The meeting also
called for a complete reevaluation of the financial aid
and tuition rate systems.
Frozen fans
If you're planing on being in Alaska Saturday, don't
worry. You can still hear the Michigan-Stanford foot-
ball game. Alaska's Midnight Sun Network - which in-
cludes stations in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Ketchikan and
Juneau - will be carrying the play-by-play across the
frozen wastelands of the North. Network officials say
they have been deluged by calls from Michigan fans
and alumni in the 50th state who want to hear the
game. Sportscaster Tom Hemmingway's play-by-play
description will be carried from the WUOM studios here
to Seattle by telephone lines. From there, it will be car-
ried up the Canadian west coast to Alaska by micro-
wave. Game time in Alaska is 9:30 a.m.
Rally set
Organizers of the tuition strike have called a
rally for 11 a.m. today on People's Plaza to bring
the strike's demands to the attention of the Regents,
who will be meeting in the administration building at
the same hour. The protest will begin with a march
from the Diag and focus on demands for re-evaluation
of the University residency requirements and imple-
mentation of the 1970 Black Action Movement Demands.
Due to a typographical error, a story in Wednes-
day's Daily incorrectly reported that there are currently
80 University research programs dealing with acupunc-
ture. The story should have said 80 universities have re-
search programs. The University itself is not currently
conducting any research on the subject.
Economist speaks
James Duesenberry - chairman of Harvard's de-
partment of economics - told those attending the 8th
annual William K. McInallyLecture here yesterday that
the conflict between price stability and high employment
is the most pervasive weakness of Western society.
The noted economist called for price controls for highly
concentrated industries along with wage controls early
in economic expansions. He also said simultaneous mone-
tary and fiscal measures were necessary to control

Trouble for Spiro
Signs increased that the federal investigation of
Vice President Spiro Agnew was about to resume, either
before a grand jury or in a court fight. U.S. Attorney
George Beall, who is directing a grand jury probe in
Baltimore of alleged political corruption in Maryland,
was reported to have been in Washington several times
this week.

Sextuplets gaining
Three of the five surviving Stanek sextuplets in
Denver were gaining in their battle against the lung
disease which killed their sister Julia. Doctors said
the three babies, who had shown signs of hyaline mem-
brane disease, were in satisfactory condition. The other
two babies, both boys, were reported in good condition.

ing is to be completed by noon on Sunday. If a majority
approves, Chrysler employes will go back to the plants

HOUSTON-With an incredible barrage
of dazzling cross-court shots and blistering
overhand blasts, Billie Jean King silenced
self-styled male chauvinist Bobby Riggs

partisan fans at the Houston Astrodome.,

as the "Battle of the Sexes," humbled

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - University swim-
mer Tom Szuba finally came home
yesterday from strife-riddled Chile
after a high-level government sna-
fu over the evacuation of Szuba
and seven other American swim-
mers delayed his return.
"It's a wonder I've gotten home,"
said the smiling athlete after his
long journey ended at Metro Air-
port. "If it weren't for some gov-
ernment pressure in the States, I'd
still be there."
SZUBA AND the other swim-
mers, members of an Amateur
'Athletic Association (AAU) good-
will tour of several South American
cOuntries, arrived in the Chilean
capital of Santiago four days before
the military junta ousted Marxist
President Salvador Allende.
State Department officials in
Washington admitted knowing of
the coup 48 hours in advance, but
no apparent effort was made to
detour theAAU group before the
shooting started.
The group of athletes had orig-
inally planned to leave Santiago
and head home a week ago, but the
junta imposed tight restrictions on
outside travel as the right-wing
palace coup triggered violent clash-
es between the military and Allen-
de's supporters.
A SERIES of phone calls from
some of the swimmers' worried
parents led Sen. Edward Gurney
(R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul McCloskey
(R-Calif.) to put pressure on the
State Department to expedite the
group's return.
The eight swimmers left Chile
Wednesday with their coach and
chaperone on a United Nations
charter flight to Buenos Aires,
where a Braniff Airlines jet picked
them up and delivered them to Mi-
ami yesterday morning.
The State Department had ear-
lier issued official assurances that
the group was in "absolutely no
danger." But the athletes said they
spent several days dodging bullets
in downtown Santiago.
A SPOKESPERSON for the State-
Department's Cultural Affairs Of-
fice maintained yesterday that
"we had no way of informing" the
AAU group of the Chile coup be-
fore it occurred.

"Not everybody knew about the
coup ahead of time," the official
said. "I didn't know about it. If
the Santiago embassy had known,
they would have informed the
group and gotten them out.
But he indicated that the State
Department would examine its
own actions in the matter at de-
briefing sessions next week.
A STAFFER in McCloskey's of-
fice said the State Department
told the congressman last week
"they were fully aware of the sit-
uation and doing everything they

torn capital of Chile. Szuba, a Michigan swimmer, was stranded for six days because of travel restric-

ticipating in an AAU-sponsored tour of three South American countries.


Dept. silent on

Student Government C o u n c i 1
(SGC) last night voted to put
money and manpower behind the
tuition strike while endorsing three
new strike demands proposed by
the Student A c t i o n Committee
(SAC) Wednesday.
SGC allocated $300 to SAC for
strike organizing purposes and
gave $400 to its own newly-formed
four-person strike advisory com-
two functions: to act as a liaison
with SAC, teach fellow groups, and
other campus organizations in-
volved in the strike; and to pro-
vide SGC with recommendations
for further action in the matter.
Council gave its support to SAC's
new demands calling for "re-evalu-
ation of criteria for residency
status, re-establishment of in-state
tuition status for teaching fellows,
and an accurate and' complete
statement of financial information
from the University."
SGC also threw its support be-
hind a rally scheduled for 11 a.m.
today at People's Plaza to bring
strike demands to the attention of
the Regents, who will be meeting
at the same hour in the adminis-
tration building.
IN OTHER major action, Coun-
cil voted down a proposal to hold
a special campus-wide referendum
on the controversial "10-10-10" rep-
resentation system. The plan,

U.S. ac
senior State Department official
yesterday refused to publicly ans-
wer questions on whether the Unit-,
ed States had financed opposition
to the ousted Chilean government
of Salvador Allende.
Jack Kubisch, assistant secre-
tary of state for interamerican af-
fairs, told a House foreign affairs
subcommittee he expected the
United States would recognize the
new military junta very soon but
that the issue of financing the op-

,ions 111
position should be discussed only
in a closed-door session.
AFTER THE subcommittee hear-
ing, reporters told Kubisch his re-
luctance left the impression that
the United States had provided
some financial support to opposi-
tion groups in Chile.
Kubisch replied that this was not
what he intended to imply but he
would stand on his statement.
The United States had pre-
viously made no secret of its dis-
like for the Allende government,

which nationalized U.S.-owned cop-
per mines and other U.S. proper-
THE ISSUE of U.S. finance was
raised by the subcommittee chair-
man, Dante Fascell, who asked
whether the United States had, di-
rectly or indirectly, given finan-
cial support to groups opposing
Kubisch reiterated U. S. denials
that it was involved in the coup
"I just want to emphasize cate-
gorically that we were not involved
in any way ,not the U. S. govern-
ment or any element, including the
Central Intelligence Agency," he
Kubisch, questioned on whether
the United States would recognize
the military government which
ousted Allende, said recognition
does not imply approval of another
country's form of government.
"MY STRONG presumption is
that we will. We have not decided
yet, but I think it will be very

A statement issued by a circuit
court judge yesterday with the in-
