This afternoon at three President Fleming will appear
in the Rackham Lecture Hall to explain the recent 24
per cent tuition hike. On hand to ask questions will be
representatives of The Daily, SGC, the Student Action
Committee, and the teaching fellows. Everybody on
campus is invited (urged to attend, even) and questions
will be taken from the floor.
Although few students realize it, President Fleming
leads a double life! In aldition to being president of the
University, he is a regent (or in this case, a trustee)
of a small college in Wisconsin. In fact, the school -
Beloit College in Beloit, Wis.,-announced yesterday
that he has been re-elected to another three-year term
there. This presents a serious problem. What happens if
the day comes when the Mighty Blue Wave of Michi-
gan faces the Paltry Blue Drip of Beloit? President Flem-
ing, where do your loyalties lie?

Ervin vs. Nixon
An attorney for President Nixon argued in federal
court yesterday that the Senate Watergate Committee
had no authority to sue the President for Watergate-
related tape recordings. Charles Alan Wright said also
that the court lacks jurisdiction in the case. Samuel
Dash, chief counsel for the committee, said it is a unique
situation, "the first case in which the President himself
may be involved in criminal activity."
ACLU vs. Nixon
The American Civil Liberties Union urged Congress
to begin impeachment proceedings against President
Nixon, based on six grounds "affecting civil liberties."
It was the first time in the 53-year history of the o-
ganization that its board of directors has voted a resolu-
tion seeking a president's impeachment.
The Pentagon is reported to be suspending U. S. Air
Force withdrawals from Thailand until it sees what Con-
gress does about ordering an over-all reduction in U. S.
troops overseas. In this way, officials hope they can
credit already planned withdrawals from the Far East
against any quotas set by Congress.
Vice President Spiro Agnew attended a 90-minute Cabi-
net session at the White House. Deputy White House
Press Secretary Gerald Warren said there was no dis-
cussion of the matter concerning allegations of political
kickbacks against Agnew.
Junta offs leftist
The military junta announcedthe execution by firing
squad of Jose Gregorio Liendo, a leftist extremist leader
of Chile's rural south. It was the 21st execution reported
by the junta since the armed forces leaders overthrew
the government of Marxist President Salvador Allende
on Sept. 11.
Shultz in Germany
U. S. Treasury Secretary George Shultz arrived in
Bonn, West Germany yesterday to try to get the govern-
ment to pay a bigger share of the costs of keeping
American GIs in Germany. Bonn reportedly is willing
to pay only half the $3.3 billion the United States is be-
lieved to have requested.
What's your 'hurry?
A man accused of robbery in Kingston, N.Y., appar-
ently couldn't even wait to hear the -jury's verdict.
Police said George Greenidge escaped from the county
courthouse while the jury was deliberating his case yes-
terday; he had been accused of second-degree robbery
in connection with a grocery-store holdup. The jury
foundahim guilty, but the police couldn't seem to find
him at all.

The idea was to create a flexible school with
a broad curriculum, which would make it more
nearly an organic part of the surrounding com-

CENTRAL to this idea was the use of so-called

Those involved with the school cite a bad pub-

They blame "the media" and counselors at other
schools for this image.
IN A LETTER to the Ann Arbor News a 'few
weeks ago, Community High Freshman Gene
Sperling defended his school against criticisms
that its curriculum is chaotic and the validity
of its credits open to question.
"Community is not a 'freak' or 'freedom'
school," he said. "It does have a structure, but
more flexibility than other high schools. It offers
conventional courses but also other options. The
