Shakespeare a sexist?
Prof. Marvin Felheim, director of the American Studies
Program and a Shakespeare expert, says the bard's.
plays were riddled with sexist stereotypes--passive, sub-
missive, fragile women, and wives willingly subordinate
to their'husbands. But blame .society, not Shakespeare.
Felheim says the bard's plays were simply a reflection
of his times, disclosing "a fairly accurate image of
women-and attitudes toward them-during his era."

Crowds of shoppers and the just

covered walkways peering at the
shop displays, examining the mer-

Approximately 121 stores and

However, a count made by a se-

showed only 17, stores actively do-

scheduled to open later in the day.
"I didn't think we were going to
make it," said a sales woman at
Casual Corner, a women's clothing
store. "The place was a mess. We
didn't get our cash register 'til this
morning and we still don't have
electricity in the back."
The sounds of drilling, hammer-
ing and sawing filled the air as
workmen added finishing touches
to the stores. Wearing overalls and
paint splattered clothes, the work-
men were almost as numerous as
customers. The entire mall reeked
of paint, plaster and wood shav-

Calls graft charges
against VP serious'
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Nixon yesterday defended the ac-
tions of Asst. Atty. Gen. Henry
Petersen, the man who has been
conducting a vigorous investigation
of alleged corruption on the part
of Vice President Spiro Agnew.
Agnew has' charged that Petersen'
was "out to get him." But Nixon,
in what appeared at least a partial
abandonment of the vice president,
said, "If I did not support Mr. Pet-
ersen's handling of the investiga-
tion he would have been re-
Nixon called the allegations that
Agnew had received illegal kick-
backs and had taken bribes "ser-
ious and not frivolous," but de-
clared that the vice president
should be presumed innocent.
Noting the "rather white-hot at-
mosphere" swirling around Agnew,
Nixon said he hopes Agnew "will
not be tried and convicted in the
press and on television by leaks
AND HE SAID he had never ask-
ed the vice president to resign.
Nixon ranged over other foreign
and domestic issues in the half-hour
news conference, his third in five
weeks, as he said:
SECRETARY OF STATE Henry
Kissinger will visit Peking Oct. 26-
29 to pursue trade and other issues
of mutual concern. Kissinger also
will visit Japan while in the Far
-He will travel to Europe him-
self "in three or four months" and
also to Japan before the end of
next year with the precise timing
of the trips dependent both on for-
eign consultations and on " my re-
sponsibilities on the domestic
-Three declarations of princi-
ple, rather than one, are being ne-
gotiated for signing during his vis-.
its to Europe and Japan. One is in-
tended to update the Atlantic Al-
liance, another deals specifically
with economic issues and the third
is a more general declaration to
"breathe new life and new pur-
pose and new spirit" into relations
with U. S. allies.
-On the political scene, he won't
endorse any Republican contender,
to succeed him in the White House
until "they have been tried in the
field of battle" in the presidential
-He wouldn't discuss possible
changes in his economic game plan
and declined to take sides in a de-
bate over whether the nation's un-
employment goal should be four

While Detroit strikes, Newark de-
teriorates and Washington worries,
15 journalists from those and other
areas are taking an eight-month
sabbatical from the daily trials of
their jobs and turning to the aca-
demic environment of Ann Arbor.
The Congressionally funded Na-
tional Endowment for the Humani-
ties is providing fellowships for
working journalists to engage in
studies of their own choosing at the
University or at Stanford Univer-
sity in California.
In addition, three international
journalist fellows are studying here

have varied experiences and inter-

however, that a federally funded
hiatus in academia is a welcome
change from the workaday blahs.
For James Ingram of The.Mich-

in Detroit, the program offers an
"opportunity to get into an aca-
demic setting for the first time in
my life and a chance to exchange
ideas with the fellows."
