Investigators to probe Tricia
Cox's alleged faulty tax return

t._ .. . ......... 9

Eastern Michigan

University

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Gov-
ernment investigators are look-
ing into the possibility that Tri-
cia Nixon Cox, the President's
eldest daughter, profited from the
sale of Florida land bought by her
father and failed to report the
gain on her income tax return,
Newsweek magazine reports this
week.
The White House called the
story "false and irresponsible"

and part of a "witch hunt atmos-
phere" in the national news me-
dia.
"THE NEWSWEEK magazine
story publishing charges about
the President's finances and
which is now becoming a national
news story is false and extreme-
ly irresponsible in its implica-
tions and in the way it was de-
veloped," the White House state-
ment said.
"Newsweek's decision to pub-

U.S., Soviets begin
troop reduction talks

lish this story, developed from
anonymous sources, instead of
taking the time to establish its
accuracy and to do so in the face
of flat denials from the White
House is symptomatic of the
witch hunt atmosphere in which
false information and harmful
impressions about the President
are being generated and broadly
disseminated to the American
people by major news media."
Themagazine said Nix-
on bought two lots of land near
his Key Biscayne home for $37,-
600 in 1967 and sold them five
years later for $150,000, leaving
him a profit of $112,400.
NEWSWEEK CALLED Mrs. Cox
"an unrecorded partner in the
deal," saying her name was not
on the purchase or sale docu-
ments but that "associates of the
President" said the purchase
price included $20,000 of her
money.
According to Newsweek, inves-
tigators told it "they have in-
formation that the President
claimed the entire capital gain on
the deal as income on his own
federal income tax return.
"Since he had established large
deductions in donations and inter-
est paid, the theory ran, he
wolud pay less total tax in Tri-
cia's share of the profit than
she would have owed."

Uruguay govt.

closes

down national college

MONTEVIDEO, (Reuter) - At
least 150 people were under ar-
rest here yesterday after the
government closed down Uru-
guay's only university claiming
it was being used as a center of
Marxist indoctrination and incite-
ment to armed struggle.
Interior Minister Col. Nestor
Boletini told newsmen the pri-
soners included University Rector
Samuel Lichtenstein and the
deans of nine of the state univer-
sity's 10 faculties.
THE 10TH, law faculty Dean
Alberto Perez Perez, is currently
in Buenos Aires, capital of neigh-
boring Argentina, the Minister
said.
Boletini said the Rector and the
Deans, who form the University's
Governing Council, were being
held under emergency powers
adopted by the military - backed
government of President Juan
Maria Bordaberry when it seized
absolute power last June.
The government said in a de-
cree ordering the closure of the
University Sunday night that the
council members were consider-
ed "ultimately responsible" for
the death of a student killed in a
bomb blast in the engineering
faculty Saturday because they

allegedly allowed illegal explo-
sives to be held in the Univer-
sity.
THE DECREE SAID subver-
sive literature f o u n d during
searches of University buildings
indicated the University was be-
ing used for "indoctrination of
youths in the Marxist ideology,
which is opposed to the democra-
tic representative system of gov-
ernment."
The searches had also turned
up explosives, material for manu-
facturing firecrackers and in-
flammable materials "to cause
fires in public thoroughfares" in-
dicating the University was also
being used for "incitement to
armed struggle," the decree said.
It accused the University Coun-
cil of failing to take "the indis-
pensable measures to maintain
order" claiming that by their
negligence the Rector and Deans
had allowed the University to be-
come a "refugee for conspiracy
against the Fatherland, its insti-
tutions and the security of its
inhabitants."
THE DECREE ORDERED Ed-
ucation and Culture Minister Ed-
mundo Narancio to take over the
administration of the University

but it did not say how long it
would remain closed.
Boletini said an investigation
was being carried out into the
alleged subversive activities at
the University and the results
would be submitted to a military
court which would decide if there
had been violations of state secur-
ity laws.
The takeover was denounced by
student sources as a move by the
government to seize control of
the University and end militant
student opposition to the Borda-
berry regime.

VIENNA, Austria () - Hurting
from a sharp split over the Mjd-
dle East, the United States and
most of its European allies meet
the Soviets today for their first
talks on mutual troop cuts in
central Europe.
Last week Defense Se:.retary
James Schlesinger threatened to
review the U.S. commitmznt to
West Germany, where some 200,-
000 U.S. troops are stationed.
Apparently he was not inclined
to wait for the result of the con-
ference. That could take years.
LEONID BREZHNEV, the Com-
munist party leader, says i h e
Soviet Union will be ready for
"realistic steps" in 1975.
Western officials said that the
task will be complex and deli-
cate, and agreements aire n o t
likely to be reached quickly or
easily.
Along with the United States,
Britain, Canada, West Germany,
Belgium, the Netherlands and
Luxembourg are present. Though
troops on their territory will not
be immediately affected, Nor-
way, Greece, Italy . and Turkey
are also taking part.
ECHOES WERE still resound-
ing of some of the harshest words
exchanged across the Atlantic
since World War II. 'Ihe Euro-
peans, heavily dependent on Mid-
dle East oil, declined to help the
U.S. airlift of arms t Israel.
U.S. officials, from President
Nixon down, publicly voiced the
U.S. resentment.
The European allies also had
their complaints. Some objected

strongly to the United States
alerting its troops on their ter-
ritory last week without asking
them first.
One U.S. official said he saw
"not a ripple" in Vienna from
this clash.
IN ADDITION to the Soviet
Union, there are delegarions in
Vienna from East Germany. Po-
and and Czechoslovakia, Bulgar-
ia, Hungary and Romania are al-
so taking part but their troops
and the Soviet tro )ps in Hungary
will not be bound by the f i r s t
agreement.
