New intern pro grain of fered
A mass meeting for students interested in a brand
new, experimental Summer Intern Program in New York
will be held tonight at 7:30 in the UGLI's Multipurpose
Room. The program - sponsored by Career Planning
and Placement - is patterned after the highly-success-
ful Washington Intern Program. But there are signifi-
cant differences. All of the jobs offered are in business
and industry, including positions with advertising, fin-
ancial, and publishing firms. In addition, unlike its
Washington counterpart, the program's organizers are
asking employers to provide students with living ex-
penses for the summer. The jobs are basically designed
for liberal arts students, although any students who have
completed their junior year by this summer are eligible.
Applications will be distributed at toniight's meeting.
HRP petition to circulate
After a series of technical delays, the Human Rights
Party has begun circulating its 6,000-word Rent Control
proposal. If petitioners garner 3600 signatures from city
voters by the first of the year, the issue of rent control
will be placed on the April City 'Council election ballot.
HRP is asking anyone who would like to help circulate
petitions - including ones asking for the reinstatment
of the $5 marijuana fine and urging that City Council
members be paid - to contact its office at 516 E. Wil-
Fie gel's demo today
The Farah Strike Support Committee of the Attica
Brigade will be picketing Feigel's clothing store in sup-

and E. Williams Streets.

Labor backs impeachment
The Huron Valley Central Labor Council, central body
of AFL-CIO affiliated locals in Washtenaw and Living-
ston counties, voted last night to support efforts to im-
peach President Nixon. The council, which represents
6,000 workers in Washtenaw County, passed a three-part
resolution demanding that Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Ann
Arbor) vote for impeachment, encouraging members
to attend Friday's town meeting on impeachment to be
held at 7:30 p.m. in Rackham Aud., and forming a spe-
cial Impeach Nixon Committee to work on petitions and
letter-writing for impeachment.
Gulf fined by court
The Gulf Oil Corporation was fined yesterday by a
U3. 5. District Court in Washington after pleading guilty
to making illegal contributions to the 1972 campaigns
of President Nixon and two other candidates. Judge
George Hart fined Gulf $5,000 and one of the company's
vice presidents, Claude Wilde Jr., $1,000 for violating
a federal statute against campaign contributions by cor-
porations. The company was occused of contributing
$100,000 to the Nixon re-election committee, $5,000 to that
of Rep. Wilbur Mills (D-Ark.), and $10,000 to that of Sen.
Henry Jackson (D-Wash.). The charges were brought
by the Watergate special prosecutor's office, and the
fines were the maximum allowed.
Kissinger praises detente
U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said in Peking
last night that the U.S. detent with The.People's Republic
of China was a necessity for all Americans, and would
be a constant factor in American foreign policy no mat-
ter what administration was in power. Kissinger was

speaking at a farewell banquet in the Great Hall of the
People before Premier Chou En-Lai and other Chinese
Leaders. Recalling Nixon's historic visit to China, he de-
scribed the President as a "pioneer." "But the journey
that was started by President Nixon has since become
a necessity for all Americans," he added.
Protestant leaders arrested
British troops arrested five Protestant leaders yester-
day in Belfast after a day of gunfire and explosions that
left 13 pole injured and a 15-year-old Catholic youth
dead. The arrests followed a government order Monday
that made two extremist Protestant groups illegal and
their members subject to arrest and imprisonment.

-the first such agreement in the
country between a physician's la-
bor union and a major university.
The contract grants the interns
stipends of up to five-and-a-half
per cent, the ceiling established by
the Economic Stability Program.
In addition, standard fringe bene-
fits covering sick leave, vacations
and insurance were described in
the contract .
BUT MORE important to both
sides was the agreement reached
concerning patient care considera-
tions-the major bone of contention
that occasionally stymied the dis

The contract signals an end to
the turbulent - and occasionally
even stormy - negotiations which

But the Association's battle for

The University Housing Council
(UHC) moved yesterday afternoon
to end the University's 14-month-
old policy banning non-union let-
tuce from dorm meals.
The matter will now be taken up
by the Housing Policy Committee
at a meeting late this month or
early in December. Observers ex-
pect a close battle in that body-.
THE UHC's ACTION yesterday
came on a three to two vote fol-
lowing an extensive and occasion-

ally emotional debate.
The motion to end the boycott
was introduced by David Lambert,
UHC representative from -West
Backers of the motion cited a
recent UHC referendum on the
question, which, they said, showed
a sizable minority of students do
not favor the boycott. The rights
of this minority, they said, are be-
-ing trampled by the boycott.
SUCH BOYCOTTS, they said,

should be "a matter of individual
conscience" and not institutional
Opponents of the resolution to
lift the boycott pointed out that al-
though - a "sizable minority'' of
students oppose the boycott, over
three quarters of those polled reg-
istered support.
The referendum to support the
boycott passed 298-191 in the recent
October election.
PRESSURE ON UHC to drop the
boycott came from a number of

tive from the "Hill" dorms, said
he has received considerable feed-
cating disapprova ofstthenbctt.
And a resident of Stockwell Hall
presented UHC with an informal
poll purporting to show that Stock-
well residents want lettuce back
on their dinner tables.
David Faye, president of UHC,
opposed the ending of the boycott
saying; "In all the time we've had
this policy (boycott) I've never
heard one complaint against it. I
think what influenced members of
the council is the fact that you're
more likely to hear complaints on
this policy than praise. Few people
are going to call up and congratu-

Waterg ate committee
votes to seek specil
Presidential meeting
WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The Senate Watergate Committee yes-
terday voted to seek a closed meeting with President Nixon to discuss
his part in the Watergate bugging and cover-up.
By a five to one vote, the committee agreed to ask for a White House
meeting with the President as part of its wide-ranging probe into the
Watergate affair and illegal financing activities during the 1972 cam-
paign. Nixon has not yet responded to the request.
THE COMMITTEE suggested that testimony by the President should
not be under oath but that a complete transcript should be made public
as soon as the discussion had ended.
The White House responded that Nixon has not decided if he should
agree to be questioned by the committee, although earlier this week,
when the possibility of a request was raised, Presidential spokesman
Ronald Ziegler said he doubted if Nixon would agree in view of other
steps he was taking to clear his name.
The committee's invitation to the President came as reports circu-
lated that Nixon was supremely eonfident that a tape recording of one of
his conversations with Watergate figures - a meeting with Presidential
counsel John Dean last March 21 - would prove beyond doubt that he
knew nothing about a cover-up until that day.

A crowd of 200 persons rallied
yesterday on the Diag in support
of the United Farm Workers
(UFW) grape and lettuce boycotts,
and more than 100 marched to the
Huron St. A&P store to demonstrate
against the store for selling non-
unon products.
uRichard Chavez, brother of UFW
leader Cesar Chavez, appealed to
students at the rally to remain
active in spite of disillusionment.
w"SUeRE WE'RE discouraged when
of the government," Chavez said.
"But there are always people of
good will ready to fight injustice."
"W~e are fighting for dignity and
justice for farm workers every-
