Impeachment rally slated
A rally, in support of the impeachment of President
Nixon will be held today at noon on the Diag. Plans call
for assembly on the Diag, followed by a march to the
downtown offices of U.S. Rep. Marvin Esch where a
list of three demands will be presented. The demands
are: "(1) Immediate establishment of a non-Nixon-con-
trolled investigation of the Administration; (2) The
impeachment of Nixon; and (3) A cutoff of all aid to
U.S.-supported dictatorial regimes in Indochina and
release of all political prisoners, as specified in the
Paris Peace Accord."
Ford sues Ypsi and Saline
The Ford Motor Co. filed suit in Washtenaw Circuit
Court yesterday claiming that Ypsilanti and Saline have
been cheating them by overassessing their property in
those cities. Ford says that overassessments have been
so great as to constitute "constructive fraud" and it
is seeking damages equal to the amount of the alleged
overcharge - $168,000 from Ypsilanti and $127,000 from
Saline. The case will be heard by Circuit Judges Conlin
and Ager. No hearing date has been set.
Another pronouncement
According to two 'U' Sociology Profs, improvements
in black economic standards and a loosening of racial
attitudes have contributed to making a high degree of
residential and school desegregation possible. The profs,
Albert Hermalin and Raynolds Farley of the Population
Studies Center, have released a major survey which
shows that more whites now accept integration and more
blacks can afford to live in whatever area of a city
they prefer. While not opposing increased government
pressure for open housing, the profs say it "need not
delay the increased amount of residential integration
already possible." Today says: "Dear Profs: Have you
been to Cicero or the Northwest side of Detroit lately?"
Save those soup labels
If you eat Campbell's soup you can do the Mott
Children's Hospital a favor by saving those labels for
the next week or so. Apparently they can redeem the
labels to purchase badly needed audio-visual equip-
ment. Save up those labels and bring them to the Fish-
bowl Nov. 18 and 19 where the folks from the aospital
will be collecting them. Labels from institutional size
cans such as your dorm, co-op, fraternity or sorority
may use, are also acceptable.

SECRETARY OF STATE Henry Kissinger, speaking at a State Department news conference yester .ay, tells reporters that the United States
and the Soviet Union have "a special duty" to make sure the new crisis in the Middle East does not threaten the world with nuclear war.

UN e

establishe s


WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Pres-
ident Nixon yesterday put the U.S.
armed forces, including nuclear
bomber and missile crews, on the
alert throughout the world and
warned the Russians not to send
troops to the Middle East. A few
hours later the crisis was appar-
ently solved.
A threatened confrontation with
the Russians seemed to have evap-
orated when the Soviet Union voted
for a United Nations Security Coun-
cil resolution setting up a peace-
keeping force in the Middle East,
specifically excluding troops from
any of the big powers, as proposed
by Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer earlier in the day.
SOURCES said the President or-
dered the alert because of word
sent to Washington by the Soviet
Union thdt the Russians would be
prepared to act alone if the Unit-
ed States did not join it in efforts
to stop ceasefire violations alleged
by Moscow to have been commit-
ted by Israel.
The pre-dawn alert and a press
conference by Kissinger, unexpect-
edly broadcast live on television,
underlined Nixon's desire to im-
press the Russians with the need
for restraint.
The U. N. Security Council ac-
tion came soon after Kissinger
voiced the President's opposition
to the introduction of U. S. or So-
viet troops to police the ceasefire.
remarks to rule out the partici-
pation of any of the other nuclear
powers -- Britain, France and
China - in a U.N. force that might
be sent in.
The rapid sequence of events
during the 12-hour crisis prompted
observers to ask whether Nixon
over-reacted or whether the Rus-
sians backed down from a reported
demand for an American-Soviet
force in the Middle East.

Asked to assess the Soviet vote
in the Security Council - keeping
Soviet troops out of the Middle
East - State Department Spokes-
man Robert McCloskey called at-
tention to Kissinger's remarks at
his press conference: "If that reso-
lution is accepted and carried out,
we believe that it will lead to an
immediate easing of the situation
and to a restoration of the condi-
tions as we observed them at noon
sider the vote a step in the right
direction. Naturally we hope that
all parties will give full support to
this resolution."
Speaking at his press confer-
ence, Kissinger rejected sugges-
tions that the President's credibil-
ity or judgment might be at stake,
or that he acted chiefly to cover
up developments in the Watergate
Kissinger was asked why Nixon
had alerted nuclear bomber and
missile forces on the basis of "a
handful of smoke," shaking the
American people without provid-
ing the information to convince
them that his emergency action
had been correct.
secretary of state said it was up
to the reporters to decide if this
was the moment to create a crisis
of confidence in the President's
handling of foreign policy as well
as domestic issues, such as Water-
"We have tried to give you as
much information as we decently
and safely and properly can," he
said, adding that judgments could
be made- when more -information
was released, as to whether the
President's decisions had been has-
ty or improper.
There had to be a minimum of
confidence that the Administra-
tions' senior officials were not play-

The Security Council yesterday de-
cided to set up a U. N. peace keep-
ing force in the Middle East, spe-
cifically excluding troops from any
of the big powers.
Moving rapidly to defuse the
grave Middle East crisis and re-
duce the risks of a U. S.-Soviet
military confrontation, the 15-na-
tion council adopted the resolution
by 14 votes, with China declaring
Motion to
killed b
SGC vote
A motion charging Student Gov-
ernment Council (SGC) President
Lee Gill with embezzling SGC
funds and demanding his recall
was defeated by Council last night.
Nine Council members 'voted for
the recall resolution and eight
against. A two-thirds majority was
needed for the motion's passage.
The recall motion, originally in-
troduced by Campus Coalition rep-
resentative Robert Matthews at a
Council meeting two weeks ago,
was the only significant business
completed in an otherwise un-
eventful and - disorderly meeting
last night.
The newly elected Council hag-
gled for over three hours about a
total of 18 motions raised by the
various factions now running SGC.
Most were not acted on.
The meeting brought a new de-
velopment in the controversy sur-
rounding charges that Gill em-
bezzled some $8,500 in SGC funds,
with Gill's first public explana-
tion of the affair.
Gill denied any wrongdoing in
the incident, which involved an at-
tempt by Gill to transfer $8,500 in
SGC funds from a local bank ac-
count to two accounts at a De-
troit bank.
Former Council members Sandy
Green and David Hornstein also
"testified" before Council on the
affair, and both denied claims by
SGC member David Faye that they
had evidence that Gill was guilty
of embezzlement.
In discussing the embezzlement
charges, Gill said that he with-
drew the $8,500 from an Ann Arbor
SGC account and attempted to de-
posit in a Manufacturer's National
Bank branch in Detroit.
He said he was following a pre-
viously established SGC policy of
stashing funds in outside accounts

Jacob Malik and U. S. Ambas-
sador John Scali both accepted the
ban on the use of forces of their
countries and of Britain, France,
and China..
But British Ambassador Sir Don-
ald Maitland and French Ambassa-
dor Louis de Guiringaud expressed
reservations on the restriction. De
Guiringaud insisted on a separate
vote on the relevant paragraph of
the resolution and then cast an ab-

The other members, except Chi-
na, voted for it.
ONLY CHINA did not participate
in the affirmative vote for the re-
solution as a whole.
Secretary-General Kurt Wald-
heim, instructed to report back a
blueprint for the composition and
operation of the force with four
hours, said he would do his best to
Waldheim said he would also

provide an estimate of the cost of
the operation.
HE WAS EXPECTED to request
troops primarily from neutral
countries, although Malik insisted

After a day of high tension with
reports of Soviet threats of unilat-
eral intervention and confirmation
that the United States had alerted
its strategic forces, Malik took
much of the heat out of the situa-
tion by announcing that he would
support the establishment of a U.
N. force without troops from the
big powers.
But if the ."aggressor" - Israel
- continued to violate the cease-
fire resolutions, approved at the
initiative of the United.States and
the Soviet Union, the council would
have no alternative but to take
more effective measures.
THE MOVE to bar the
great powers from providing con-
tingents came'in response to the
urgent demands of the United
Egyptian Foreign Minister Mo-
hamed Hassan El-Zayyat was said
to have told the sponsors that his
government was ready, to go along
with the idea, despite the fact that
President Anwar Sadat called on
the superpowers to send in their
own troops.
Informed sources said that be-
cause of the new Egyptian posi-
tion, Malikdidtnothcontinue ear-
lier objections to- the bar on big
power forces.
Yosef Tekah did not oppose the dis-
patch of the force,. although Is-
raeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban
rejected any idea of international
policing. Many diplomats conclud-
ed that the United States had ex-
erted strong pressure on the Is-
raelis not to upset the plan.
Scali said the resolution, if faith-
fully implemented by all concern-
ed, would result in the prompt, ef-
fective establishment of a truce
ceasefire in the Middle East.
He also promised the help of the
United States in "facilitating the
transportation of this force to the
