A host of business kingpins and advertising execu-
tives descended onto campus yesterday to receive Es-
quire Magazine's "first annual corporate social respon-
sibility advertising awards." Twenty firms were selected
by a pan'el of judges from the University's journalism
department. The magazine's founder and publisher
Arnold Gingrich presented plaques to businesses rang-
ing in size from IBM and General Motors to a San
Francisco funeral parlor.
University President Robben Fleming has appointed
a student-faculty-administrator committee to "review
both the present University fee (tuition) structure and
the philosophy upon which it may be based." Bringing
together such figures as the dean of the graduate school
and an assistant to the vice president for academic
affairs on residency status, the group will also include
SGC President Lee Gill and a representative to be nam-
ed by the Rackham Student Government. Fleming sur-
prised few administration-watchers when he announced
that the committee is not expected to make any re-
commendations which will reduce total revenue from
student fees. One observer termed this move "a clear-
cut attempt at co-optation and obfuscation of the whole

U.S. involved in coup?
The widow of the late Chilean President Salvador
Allende has accused the U.S. government of flooding
Chile with forged bank notes to precipitate the over-
throw of her husband. In an interview with the illus-
trated magazine Der Stern released in Bonn yesterday,
Ms. Allende said the scheme was aimed. at increasing
inflation in Chile. "I accuse the CIA, the ITT concern,
the American copper companies and the State Depart-.
ment," she said. "They never gave him.(Allende) a day's
peace to govern the country." A former Chilean am-
bassador to Mexico City, Hugo Vigorena, told Der Stern
in the interview he would release documents in two
weeks time proving American involvement in the Chilean
Prisoners' treatment "vile"
An Italian Protestenttpastor just back from South
Vietnam yesterday said the conditions of political pri-
soners there were "unimaginably vile." Rev. Tullio Vin-
ay told a press conference in Geneva, "I have returned
anguished at what I saw and heard. Things are far
worse than they were before the Vietnam peace agree-
ment." He said he heard from two former inmates of
the prison on Con Con Island of "tiger-cages" where be-
tween seven and -14 people were packed into cells mea-
suring six square yards. He had spoken to a 50-year-old
man, also an ex-prisoner of Con Son, who had tuberculo-
sis and was paralyzed from the waist down. The man
reportedly told the Italian pastor he had been forced
to sit with his legs crossed and chained together for
A'Toronto dentist says marijuana may be the
latest weapon against tooth decay. Dr. Harry Slade says
he can always tell which patients smoke marijuana,
"and that sometimes alarms them." What gives them
away is the amount of food plaque - the carbohydrate
residue of food that coats the teeth. Regular marijuia
smokers have little or no plaque, Slade says, but he
doesnt know why. iThe result is fewer cavities because
it's the plaque that combines with saliva to etch away
at tooth enamel, the dentist claims.
Firemen o hungry
Firemen assigned to Engine Co. 19 in Nashville,
Tenn. were about ready to sit down to a dinner of
steak, corn, potatoes and biscuits Monday when the
alarm bell rang. After fighting a fire in a nearby public
housing, project for more than an hour, the now-hungry
firemen returned to their station expecting to finish .the
meal. The corn, potatoes and biscuits were still on the
stove, Capt. Harry McGonigal said. But the 14 steaks
left in the 'oven were gone. "I guess that's indicative
of what's going on with the economy today," the still-
hungry captain remarked.

LANSING (UPI) - Students should be allowed to
sit on the governing boards of the universities they
attend, a group of student advisors to the Governor's
Commission on Higher Education said yesterday.
The report, authored by the Commission's student
advisory group, also backed co-educational dormi- -
tories and the elimination of rules covering visiting
hours and on-campus drinking.
ALTHOUGH ATTORNEY General Frank Kelley has
ruled against student membership on college govern-
ing boards on conflict of interest grounds, the report.
said there is no evidence to suggest that students
would use their authority on governing boards "with
any less integrity than other office holders."
"'At present", the report stated, "the main argu-
ment against student participation at institutions they
are attending is that a conflict of interest arises be-
cause students would hold power over those persons
-the instructors-who would be judging their per-
"Such an argument is a slap in the face of every
student in the State of Michigan."
THE 19-PAGE report noted that legislators estab-
lish taxes to which they are subject and that city
councilmen set property taxes they must pay.
Student membership on the Board of Regents has
long been a demand of various student groups on
this campus as well.
The report, the combination of a student survey
and of the opinions of the eight students in the group,
will be presented to the Commission on Higher Edu-
THE 20 recommendations in the report also urged
an end to campus lifestyle restrictions and called for
an examination of the state's residency requirements.
The report suggested that the age of majority law
which gives full legal rights to persons 18 years of
age and older is perhaps being violated by universi-
ties which deny adult rights to students.
The students also urged universities to create a
situation in which students can choose the .-living
situations they find most appealing.
IN THE AREA of residency, -the student group said
requirements should be made uniform at all Michi-
gan colleges and universities.
"In some instances,a student can, by virture of
obtaining Michigan voting residency and declaring
his campus address as a legal residence, gain in-
state status," the report said. "In another. case this
is not adequate."
The students put off making a major recommen-
dation on the controversial issue of residency re-
quiremeints for out-of-state students because of a
recent Supreme Court decision which clouded the im-
mediate future of tuition policy. But they did propose
"a thorough examination of the entire residency

WASHINGTON (M - Vice
President Spiro Agnew asked
the House of Representatives
<< yesterday to investigate ac-
cusations that he was involved
in political corruption.
Agnew denied wrongdoing
in a man-to-man meeting
with President Nixon, then
took his case to Congress.
THE VICE PRESIDENT acted
after Atty. Gen. Elliot Richardson
4.r announced he had authorized fed-
eral prosecutors to take 'their evi-
dence against Agnew before a
grand jury in Baltimore Thursday.
Agnew made his request of the
House in a letter to Speaker Carl
Albert. Agnew personally took his
letter to Capitol Hill, where he met
for more than an hour with Albert
and other House leaders.
In the letter, the Vice President
said his lawyers had advised him

:eedings against a vice president

HE SAID he therefore could not
acquiesce in any criminal proceed-
ings, or look to them for vindica-
"In these circumstances, I be-
tieve, it i-s the right and duty of
the vice president to turn to the
House," he said.
Agnew's letter did not mention

quested. Nor, said Albert,did Ag-
