In yesterday's issue, we reported that the Organiza-
tion of Teaching Fellows had voted against a strke at
their Thursday night meeting. In fact, no vote on a
strike was taken, and according to spokesman John
Nelson, the possibility of a strike still exists as the TFs
are still at odds with the administration on several is-
sues . . . Also yesterday's Daily said that the Child
Care Action Center had been approved by a Democrat-
controlled City Council. We neglected to make clear that
the center was passed by a council majority of Demo-
crats and Human Rights Party representatives, and that
it was the Humans who proposed the center in the first
Happenings - -
are exceedingly sparse. The big one, of course,
is the Michigan-Illinois game at Michigan Stadium to-
day at 1:30 p.m. . . And looking forward to tomorrow,
a discussion on marriage in the '70s will be held at the
Ecumenical Campus Center, 921 Church, at 7:30 p.m. Dr.
and Ms. Robert Blood, marriage counselors, will speak
that's about all, folks.
Improvements on "The Pill"?
A possible solution to the problem of blood clotting
associated with the oral contraceptive pill was suggested
to the American Heart Association yesterday. A Wash-
ington University scientist claims that the clotting - a
"slight risk" to the 14 million American women on the
pill - may be triggered by minor physical stress, such
as minor surgery or a broken bone. Such stress com-
bined, with the pill can rob women's bodies of a normal
anti-clotting agent, according to Dr. Stanford Wessler,
and the problem can be solved by the simple adminis-
tration of tiny amounts of heparin, an anti-coagulant.
Stone Age peo pe rebel
Thirty 'warriors from the Krenakore Indian tribe,
which has lived for thousands of years in Stone Age iso-
lation and only recently came into contact with modern
civilization, have invaded a Brazilian road camp and
refuse to allow further highway construction. The Kren-
akore tribesmen walked 25 miles from their village to
the road camp, officials reported, and have remained
there for several days eating the camp's food and pro-
hibiting anyconstruction work. Brazilian higher-ups are
reported puzzled.
Yule scene offed
The world's largest nativity scene, erected each Yule-
tide in Grand Haven, Mich., will be blacked out this
year because of the energy crisis. The scene, which will
be left in storage this year, includes 30-foot high camels,
14-foot high shepherds, and 20-foot high angels - in
addition to a huge traditional manger scene. The 44-
foot tall Star of Bethlehem which traditionally hovers
over the 'Grand Haven display, however, will shine as
brightly as ever this year from its perch atop nearby
Dewey Hill.
Stocks plummet
Stock prices suffered their worst drop in more than
11 years yesterday on the New York Stock Exchange
amid fears of severe economic upsets due to the energy
crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 25.44
to 907.21 in the worst single drop loss since May 28,
1972. Prices on the American Stock Exchange also
tumbled in moderate trading.
Royal wedding cake
Princess Anne's wedding cake was unveiled yesterday
weighing in at 145 pounds and standing five feet, eight
inches tall. The cake, baked over a period of eight
weeks by the British army bakers, contains among other
goodies 27 pounds of raisins and 26 pounds of currants.
We can see it now! "For your complete recipe, write
to Wedding Cake, Buckingham Palace, London, Eng-
land . . . and be sure to include a self-addressed en-
velope with a sixpence stamp . . .
Germans legalize sex
The West German Bundesrat (upper house) yesterday
gave final approval to legislation legalizing group sex,

wife-swapping, and the sale of pornographic material
to persons over 18. Homosexual acts among men over
18 years of age also become legal under the new laws,
which go into effect next week. The legislation permits
sexual intercourse between relatives by marriage, but
retains Germany's ban on incest.

Same to you, buddy
The residents of West Quad's Allen Rumsey House yesterday staged this silent protest against dorm
director Leon West, who has allegedly delayed a qua ddie liquor party by insisting that the prospective
drinkers first obtain a state liquor license. Some observers say this style of protest may provide a use-
ful wintertime alternative to street demonstrations.

Nixon and
GOP elite
trict Court Judge John Sirica
yesterday sentenced Watergate
spy Howard Hunt to a jail
term of at least two-and-a-
half years for his role in the
bungled Watergate break-in.
Sirica ordered a one-to-five
year sentence for Hunt's for-
mer accomplice, James Mc-
Cord, whose letter to the judge
last spring blew the lid off a
scandal that has since threat-
ened to topple the Nixon ad-
ministration. Sirica had pur-
posely delayed sentencing to
encourage further revelations
from Hunt and the five other
burglars who received jail
terms yesterday.
AS THE JUDGE announced sen-
tences for the s e v e n original
Watergate figures, President Nix-
on met for two hours yesterday
w i t h Republican Congressional
leaders to determine how Nixon
could counteract his current level
of negligible public credibility.
Sirica gave Hunt a two-and-a-half
to eight year sentence plus a
$10,000 fine for his role in planning
and carrying out the break-in at-
tempt at the Democratic National
Headquarters in June, 1972. The
others involved took lighter sen-
McCord, who with Gordon Liddv
stood trial after the others pleaded
guilty, has the right to appeal his_
sentence,aand his lawyer said he
would. Meanwhile, he remains free
on bail with 15 days to get his
affairs in order.
Bernard Barker, Hunt's deputy
in the CIA-sponsored Bay of Pigs
invasion of Cuba, was sentenced to
18 months to six years. Barker re-
cruited his CIA-connected associ-
ates - Eugenio Martinez, Virgiio
Gonzalez and Frank Sturgis - for
the June 17, 1972 break-in.
Martinez, Gonzalez and Sturgis
each were givenone-to-four year
terms and will be eligible for pa-
role before Christmas. They al-1
ready have served nearly a year
while awaiting trial and final sen-
tencing. Sturgis' wife said she was
"pleased and relieved that it is
finally coming to an end."
Barker's daughter, Maria Elena
Moffett of Alexandria, Va., de-
nounced the sentence that will keep
her father in prison at least seven
or eight months more. "Someone
has to go to jail," she said, "so1
they send this man-a punk-for]
Mitchell, Magruder and ultimately
the President of the United States."

measure. -
JUDGE RODNEY Hutchinson,
however, postponed the case to an
unspecified future date before the
city presented counter-arguments.I
The measure in question outlaws
discrimination in employment on

the basis of race, color, religion,
sex and other factors. But at the
heart of the court fight is the
future of the Human Rights De-
partment (HRD), established to
enforce the ordinance.
"If the court goes against us, we
may as well close up shop," com-
mented one HRD staff member.
City Administrator Sylvester Mur-

day's proceedings, voiced a similar

details remain

By The Associated Press
Israel and Egypt announced yes-
terday they were favorable toward
signing an agreement worked out
with the help of the United States
that could lead to a permanent
peace settlement in the Middle
But it was not clear if Cairo and
Tel Aviv had accepted all six points
of an agreement announced earlier
yesterday by Washington.
ISRAEL SAID early today after
a four-hour Cabinet meeting that
it still wanted to work out details
and did not immediately indicate
whether it would go along with the
signing of the agreement scheduled
for today.
Cairo's official Middle East News
Agency last night reported Egypt's
acceptance of an agreement which
resulted from Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger's trip to Cairo last
But the Cairo version of the
agreement differed somewhat from
the terms that were announced
yesterday morning in Washington.
CAIRO'S four-point plan did not
include three points ,of the Wash-
ington-announced proposal refer-
ring to Egypt's encircled 3rd Army
and to Israeli checkpoints in ter-

ritory Israel captured since the
war began Oct. 6.
But the Cairo version included
one point the Washington announce-
ment did not have-that the correct
implementation of Cairo's other
three points is the first step toward
implementing the U.N. Security
Council resolutions toward achieve-
ing peace in the Middle East.
The United States had announced
a six-point plan to firm up the
cease-fire and said Egypt and Is-
rael were ready to sign it. Then
a snag developed in Tel Aviv and
the Israeli cabinet went into an
urgent session to discuss the terms.
AFTER THE meeting the Israeli
government reaffirmed its "posi-
tive decision in the principle to-
ward the signature of a cease-fire'
agreement with Egypt." The care-
ful wording of the announcement
and absence of any indication when
Israel would sign an agreement
implied dissatisfaction with the six
The communique added, "There
will be further contacts with rep-
resentatives of the U.S. govern-
ment on this matter."
Although Washington's six points
did not include a determination to
pursue a conference to install a
lasting peace, officials there said

n erain
the agreement was designed to
achieve that purpose.
SYRIA, the third major com-
batant in the October war, did not
indicate its position on the six-point
plan. -
As Israeli Premier Golda Meir
called the urgent Cabinet meeting,
officials of her government said
Israel was "seeking clarification"

Thanks to rising tuition, the Uni-
versity appears to be losing its
attractiveness to potential out-of-
state applicants.
Associate Director of Admissions
Lance Erickson says the increas-
ing costs of education here for non-
resident students have made it
"tougher for Michigan to attract
the high quality applicant."
A RECENT higher education
study prepared by the National
Association of State Universities
and Land Grant Colleges found
that out-of-state upperclassmen at
Michigan pay the highest. tuition
at any state school in the country.

Surprisingly, this year's figures
show no substantial further decline
despite the 24 per centttuition hike,
but it still may be too early to
feel the effects of the big cost
The hike "can't help but aggra-

ACCORDING TO Erickson, mon-

the flow of out-of-state applicants.
Another contributing factor has
been improvement of public col-
leges in other states, particularly
New York and New Jersey.
Also, experts are projecting a
steady decrease in high school
graduates, and Erickson says the

DON SWAIN, an assistant admis-
sions director, cites some other fac-
tors in the decline of out-of-states
applications, including decreasing
interest in the engineering field.
The Ann Arbor lifestyle, he says,
doesn't help. "Demonstrations,
strikes, and coed bathrooms are
factors that aren't easy to erase,"
he notes. "If you ask Dad for
