Medical grant
U' Hospital's department of radiology has been award-
ed a $400,000 grant from the American Cancer Society
and the National Cancer Institute to conduct a breast
cancer detection program. According to Walter White-
house, chairman of the radiology department, the grant
will enable the hospital to offer free exams to women
over 35 years old. The 'U' was one of nine major medi-
cal centers to receive the additional funding.
Mobile homes
The Housing Office announced yesterday it has moved
its base of operations from 3011 SAB to 1500 SAB. The
Housing Information Office and the Off-campus Housing
Office will remain in their present location in 1011 SAB.
Fast action from Big Bill
When the word comes down from "The Man," it
doesn't take Governor Bill Milliken very long to swing
into action. Last night, after listening to President Nix-
on's nationally televised speech on the energy, crises,
Milliken picked up his phone, called the State Capitol
and left orders for the janitor to turn down the thermo-
stat in his office to 68 degrees. The governor had met
earlier in the day to discuss the energy situation with
the President.
Students burn
A poor student turnout in East Lansing spelled defeat
for two leftist candidates running for the city council.
Nelson Brown and Margaret McNeil were defeated by
two conservative opponents ~- perpetuating conserva-
tive control of the body. Though they hold a 2-1 edge
in voter registration, MSU students turned out in low
numbers ruesday. Their non-student neighbors, however,
turned out in force. The two liberal candidates had
campaigned for a number of sweeping reforms including
a plan to take guns away from policemen on duty.

Cold feet won't be the only end product of this win-

the lack of petroleum-based plastics used in producing

artists may have trouble getting contracts. The quality
of the discs also may be on the way down as the indus-

A:13-year old girl robbed a lower Manhattan bank of
over $2,000 yesterday, but was seized moments later by
two Wells Fargo agents. According to police, the girl
placed a brown paper bag in front of a woman teller and
said, "fill it or I'll kill you." The girl did not show any
weapon. Upon capture the girl said she had been put up
to the crime by an adult male. Police believe she is
the youngest person ever to attempt a bank robbery in
the city's history.
Protective reaction
More than 50 South Vietnamese fighter-bombers blast-
ed military targets around the Viet Cong administrative

capital of Loc Ninh yesterday. The air-raid, the heav-
iest since the cease-fire, was described as a punitive
action to retaliate for recent communist attacks. "We
do not regard the bombing as a violation of the cease-
fire," said a Saigon spokesman. "because it was car-
ried out only to punish the enemy for his violations."
Consumer news
Led by lower costs for farm products, wholesale prices
declined in October for the second month in a row. Just
what effect that decline would have on the retail level

WASHINGTON - Congress yes-
terday overrode President Nixon's
veto of a historic bill curbing the
President's power to wage an un-
declared, prolonged war.
The Congressional action means
that for the first time in history
the President is specifically bar-
red from conducting prolonged mili-
tary operations - such as those
in Vietnam - without a formal
declaration of war by Congress.

Decisions on use of
extra cash questioned
The University announced yesterday that the controversial
24 per cent tuition hike will produce an overflow of revenue
for the University amounting to nearly $4 million in unex-
pected extra money.
And in an official statement, the administration said it was pre-
pared to spend the bulk of the extra cash on a 5.5 per cent salary
hike for teaching fellows and other financial commitments to TFs
announced yesterday in a related decision.
THE UNIVERSITY yesterday released "tentative" figures indi-
cating that the massive tuition hike has pushed revenue levels past the
$42.1 million needed to fill budget needs by at least $3.75 million.
According to the statenent, the considerable overshoot results from
"an excess of enrolled students" and a low number of applicants for
in-state tuition under the new residency rules approved last summer.
University President Robben Fleming and Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan Smith both pledged earlier this term that in the
event of a revenue excess, student input and open discussion would
precede any decisions on use of the excess cash. But several sources
have indicated that much of the tentative budget outlinedyesterday
by-passed officials and students involved in the normal budget decision-
making process.
According to an official statement, the executive officers will
recommend the following distribution of the extra money:
* $2 million "to maintain the 1972-73 status of teaching fellows,"
including a 5.5 per cent salary hike and temporary reinstatement of
in-state tuition benefits for out-of-state TFs;
0 Removal of a previously-approved $4-per-student "fee for rec-
reation purposes" which would have been assessed during the winter
0 $60,000 allocated to provide additional 'staff for the Office of
Student Financial Aid;
! $1.5 million "utilized to cover other expenses and contingencies
. . . (including) higher utility charges, which have taken place since
the present budget was established."
VICE PRESIDENT for Student Services Henry Johnson, who is one
of the executive officers, told The Daily, "I didn't know about the
recommendations until (yesterday) morning."
He added that "there was limited dialogue on these items" and
indicated that with the exception of the TF allotment, the "executive
officers' recommendations" originated almost solely from Smith, Flem-
ing, and Chief Financial Officer Wilbur Pierpont.
