Vol. LXXXIV, No. 50 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Friday, November 2, 1973 Ten Cents
& JSEE NEWS HAPPEN CALL X LY
The times, as everyone knows, are a changin', but
apparently they aren't a changin' very fast over at the
University Information Service. Purchasers of the new
University student directory - which went on sale
yesterday - may have noticed something slightly odd
about the cover. The full page foto which graces the
directory depicts students congregating on the Diag.
What's funny about it, is their appearance - crew cut
hair styles and knee length skirts. The picture, it turns
out, is at least seven years old. Why, do may ask,
does the 1973-74 directory feature a seven-year-old pic-
ture? According to the folks at the information service,
the foto comes from their "campus life" file which has
not been updated since 1966._
County backs impeachment
Washtenaw County's Democratically-controlled Board
of Commissioners jumped on the impeachment band-
wagon Wednesday night, but before they did, the board's
Republican members had bailed out. Commissioner
Kathy Fojtik (D-Ann Arbor) introduced a mion dcalling
for impeachment of Nixon. But before it could come
to a vote, four of the board's six GOP members decided
to take a walk rather than stick around and see the
measure passed. The resolution, which will be forward-
ed to Congress, states that the President should be im-
peached because there is "considerable public evi-
dence" that he "may have participated" in the follow-
ing crimes: perjury, bribery, unauthorized wiretapping,
obstruction of criminal investigations and conspiracy
against the rights of citizens.

The great escape
President Nixon flew to Florida on such short notice
yesterday that a small group of reporters that usually
travel with him on his jetliner were left behind. There
was no indication from the White House why the Presi-
dent decided to leave so suddenly, but there was specu-
lation he was incensed at the snowballing criticism
following yesterday's stranger-than-fiction announcement
that two crucial Watergate tapes were not available. It
was apparently the first time during Nixon's presidency
that he left the five reporters and two photographers who
ride Air Force 1 holding the bag.
Irish govt. faces crisis
The Irish government plunged into a major political
crisis yesterday following the helicopter escape of three
Irish Republican Army chiefs from a top security prison
in Dublin. Prime Minister Liam Cosgrave, facing his
worst domestic trouble since he took office seven months
ago, called an emergency Cabinet meeting and told po-
lice and military chiefs he was personally taking charge
of the hunt for the escapees. Sources said Cosgrave and
his government were. "severely shocked and embar-
rassed." The main opposition party, meanwhile, Fianna
Fail, denounced the government's "incompetence in se-
Sunday driving scotched
Dutch "Sunday drivers" risk incurring penalties of
up to six years imprisonment and about $541,500 - that
is, 100,000 guilders - newspapers in The Hague warned
yesterday. The ban applys to all Sunday motor vehicle
traffic starting this weekend that doesn't have a spec-
ial permit. The indefinite restriction is part of a series
of measures to economize on oil and gasoline consump-
tion, which it is hoped will be reduced by 10 per cent.
"Of course, these look like very stiff penalties," said
a ministry spokesman yesterday, "but you should re-
member that it will be the discretion of the court judge
to adjust the penalty according to the circumstances af-
ter hearing evidence."
It was a freakish accident, but not without its poetic
justice. New York police reported yesterday that two
gunmen forced their way into a man's car at an inter-
section and made the driver sit between them. Simul-
taneously, they drew and fired their revolvers at their
victim - unfortunately they also shot each other in the
process. One of the gunmen, who was described as hav-
ing links with the Carlo Gambino crime family, was
listed in critical condition, while the other gunmen
and his victim were reportedly seriously hurt at Long
Island University Hospital.

WASHINGTON-Tapes of President Nixon's conversations
which covered the period of a crucial missing meeting with
John Dean were turned over to a presidential aide four months
ago, a U.S. court was told yesterday.
Nixon claimed Wednesday that he had recently discovered that no
tapes exist of the April 15 meeting with Dean.
The White House said the Nixon-Dean meeting went unrecorded
because of a malfunction in the secret system of recording all discussions
in the president's office.
In other Watergate-related developments, President Nixon, as ex-
pected, named Ohio Republican Senator William Saxbe to be attorney
And Nixon appointed a 68-year-old Texas trial lawyer, Leon Jaworski,
to be the new Watergate special prosecutor. He promised to give
Jaworski full cooperation and not fire him without consulting Congres-
sional leaders from both parties.
The new bombshell concerning the allegedly missing tapes was
dropped by Raymond Zumalt, a Secret Service technician who testified
in federal court that White House Aide Stephen Bull took possession of
22 tapes including the Dean tape, last July.
Zumwalt said the tapes taken by Bull apparently covered all
recorded presidential conversations between early March and late April.
Bull withdrew the tapes on July 11 and returned them on July 12.

Nixon's conversation with Dean on April 15 was considered crucial
to discovering whether Dean was correct when he 'testified before the
