important notes, memoranda and:
other documents that the court or-

points to the attention of the court
and abide by its decision."
In his statement, Nixon describ-
ed his compromise plan as one
"that would comply with the spirit'
of the decision of the Court of Ap-
peals." He said it would provide
the information Cox "claims he
needs for use in the grand jury"
and would be designed to resolve
"any lingering thought that the
President himself might have been
involved in a Watergate cover-up."
NIXON SAID he was confident
his earlier refusal to hand over the
tapes would have been upheld by
the Supreme Court.
"I have concluded, however, that
it is not in the national interests to
leave this matter unresolved for
the period that might be required
for a review by the highest court,"
Nixon said.
The President said it was with
the greatest reluctance that he
had concluded that in this one in-
stance it was necessary to commit
a breach in the confidentiality of

a loaf of bread-and made peanut

The contest winner was engi-'
neering student Randy Force. His
entry was painted bright blue and
held the egg in the middle of a
shield made of putty and coated
with paper-mache.
Winnings were two tickets to
the Judy Collins concert.
IN ADDITION, the marathon
dance at Markley Residence Hall
was still in progress at press time,
with six couples competing.
According to con'test regulations,
dancers must keep moving and
remain in contact at all times.

"TO WATCH this great Univer-
sity from this position in all its
operations has been nothing but
fun,' Smith said.
M a n y observers characterize
Smith as the enemy of high-level
faculty groups of all political colo-
rations, and question his compe-
tence as an administrator.
In particular, Smith has gained
a reputation for taking a hard
line against left-oriented students
and faculty. His most notable re-
cent clash was in fall 1971 with
members of the P r o g r a m for
Educational and S o c i a l Chang-,
PESC instructors opened their
classes to non-enrolled people as
part of an effort to integrate Uni-
versity education with the city
NEVERTHELESS, administrators
and faculty members commenting
yesterday on Smith's resignation
spoke favorably of him for the
most part. ,
Vice President for Student Serv-

ices Henry Johnson called Smith
"an extremely fair person whenf
presented with facts," and another
administration official commented,
"After history gets added up some-
time in the distant future, students
are going to find he wasn't the big
bad boogie man they thought."
Psychology Prof. Robert Hefner,
a staff member of the Center for
Conflict Resolution, which alleged-
ly lost its funding due to unpopu-
larity with the central administra-
tion, admitted he has had "some
unpleasant dealings" with Smith,
but remarked, "He's also funded
a number of the most important
things going on around here."

DURING FIVE dramatic days of
testimony before the Senate com-
mittee in June, Dean described
meetings early in 1972 in the office
of Atty. Gen. John Mitchell at
which a bizarre political espionage
plan was proposed. The plan in-

silence of the men charged with
the June 17, 1972, break-in at
Democratic National Committee
headquarters in the Watergate.
And, finally, he left the imn-
pression that the President was
aware of the effort to limit the
Watergate investigation.
WEEKS AFTER Dean had testi-
fied, another witness disclosed
that meetings in the President's
office were taped.
That disclosure, and the Presi-
dent's subsequent refusal to turn
over the tapes voluntarily, led Cox
and the committee to subpoena
tapes of meetings described by
Cox argued that the tapes could
provide the proof of the truth or

Potentially, the impact of the
committee is enormous. Johnson,
who will head up the group, is
charged with presenting an interim
report to the Regents on the pro-
gress of the committee at the De-
cember meeting.
He is also supposed to present a
formal report to the Regents before
the end of the winter term,
WHAT ACTION the Regents de-
cide to take, if any, is speculative
At lest, but certainly a massive
change in the role and structure of,
student government is not outside
the realm of possibltity .
In other action, the Regents ap-
proved the University's 1974-75 Eco-
nomic Adjustment Request to the

state legislature, including a bid
for a 9.7 per cent increase in staff
Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan Smith explained that the
salary increase request includes al-
lowances for inflation, competition
for quality staff: members, reward
for merit, and economic growth.
THE REQUEST also includes a
.7 per cent increase for. mainte-
nance and upgrading of staff bene-
fits and an additional plea fpr more
than $2.6 million to cover non-sal-
ary costs such as utilities, insur-
ance, and library acquisitions.
Faculty members who investi-
gated the University's staff com-
pensation situation had recom-
mended that the Regents request a
16 per cent increase in salaries.
Smith said he hoped the faculty
would be reconciled to the lower
figure by the option the Regents
reserve to adjust the inflation fig-
ure as late as next June.
