Regents assemble
In this month's administrative blitz, the University's
executive officers will present the Board of Regents to-
day and tomorrow with requests for re-allocation of the
$3.75 million surnlus produced by the recent 24 per cent
fee hike. The proposed distribution of the money, pre-
pared by administration officials despite earlier claims
that students would have a voice in handling the surplus,
includes a grant of $2 million to teaching assistants in
increased stipends and financial aid, appropriation of
$60,000 to the Office of Financial Aid for personnel costs,
and funding of a $150,000 payment toward construction of
University recreation facilities. The. Regents' public
meetings take place today from 2:30 to 4 p.m., with a
public comments session until 5, and tomorrow from
11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Both sessions will be held in the
Regents' Room, on the first floor of the Administration
Impeachment vote
The College Young Democrats have added their voice
to the swelling numbers advocating the impeachment of
President Richard Nixon. The group voted unanimous-
ly on a motion calling for immediate impeachment and
sent a copy of the resolution to Rep. Marvin Esch (R-
Ann Arbor) and to all members of the House Judiciary
Committee. The group also announced it would sponsor
a candlelight march to honor the 10th anniversary of
the assassination of President John Kennedy.
Arizona bound
The sunny climes of Arizona have lured yet another
'U' staff member. Dr. Neal Vanselow, chairman of the
medical school's department of post-graduate medicine
and health professions education, has been named dean
of the College of Medicine of the University of Arizona.
Vanselow will assume his new post next June 1.
Marvelous Marv
On his way out of yesterday's GOP meeting with
President Nixon, Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Ann Arbor) was
pressed by reporters for the highlights of the President's
message. According to Esch, Nixon, in speaking about
the probable effect of any appearance before Congress
on the Watergate question, quipped,. "The Democrats
would say I'm a lying son of a bitch and the Republicans
would say I'm probably lying but I'm their son of a

on pain at
Clad in dark-colored, loosely-fitted suits, a four-
member delegation of medical specialists from the
People's Republic of China were special guests
at a conference on pain held yesterday afternoon
at the University Medical Center.
Earlier in the day, the Chinese delegation,
composed of two women and two men, had ob-
served a stereotaxic operation-where a probe is
placed in the brain to destroy a portion of it and
alleviate the individual of pain-performed by
Dr. James Taren, a neurosurgeon at the Univer-
sity hospital.
THE PHYSIOLOGISTS who visited the city are
part of an eight-member delegation from China
which is on a 35-day tour of U.S. medical centers
in 11 states.
Dr. Kenneth Casey, associate professor of physi-
ology, hosted the delegation for the two days
they were ir the city.
He said that the Chinese group visit is part of



an intensive effort in China "to discover the
physiological basis for anethesia achieved by
"Chinese physicians in clinical trials have made
great progress in refining the use of acupunc-
ture," Casey said, "However, no one yet has
discovered precisely how it works."
Dr. Casey has done research with animal tissue
and recorded pain impulses received by a single
brain cell.
DURING THE conference the delegation was
asked how they treat patients with cancerous
tumors. Through an interpreter, they said they
use herbal therapy combined with Western ther-
apy using analgesic agents.
"It sounds as if we have more to learn from
our guests," commented one doctor present at
the conference.
Through an interpreter, Ku Yun-hui, deputy
head of the delegation, expressed the hope that
our two countries can come to understand each

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - President Nixon yesterday re-
ceived an unexpected rebuff when a federal judge ruled he il-
legally fired Archibald Cox as special Watergate prosecutor
last month.
The ruling came almost a month after the Oct. 20 "Saturday Night
Massacre," when Cox was dismissed, Attorney General Elliot Richard-
son resigned rather than carry out a presidential order to fire him,
and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus was fired for re-
fusing to obey a similar order.
U. S. DISTRICT Court Judge Gerhard Gesell said Cox was not
nominated by the President and did not serve at the President's plea-
sure. He was an appointee of the attorney general, the judge ruled, and
was subject to congressional rather than presidential control.
The dismissal of Cox and the removal of the two top officials in
the Justice Department in one swoop did more than any other recent
incident in the Watergate case to undermine President Nixon's popu-
larity in Congress and with the American people.
Judge Gesell's ruling, however, did not have any immediate prac-
tical effect because it did not order the President to dismiss the new
special prosecutor, Leon Jaworski, and reinstate Cox.
The judge said his conclusion did,not necessarily indicate that the
appointment of Jaworski, a Texas trial lawyer, was in itself illegal.

This was because Cox's evident decision not to seek reinstatement
called for the prompt appointment of a successor to carry on the im-
portant work in which the dismissed prosecutor had been engaged, the
judge said.
ON THE President's orders, 'Cox was finally dismissed by Solicitor
General Robert Bork, who was named acting attorney general. Bork
yesterday said he hoped Judge Gesell's railing would not have any
impact on Jaworski's operations.
In a related development, Watergate Judge John Sirica refused to
accept an offer by President Nixon to give non-subpoenaed tape record-
ings of his own recollections and documents to the court.
The President on Monday announced he would make available the
material dealing with conversations for which original tape recordings
did not exist.
JUDGE SIRICA said he did not want his court to become a deposi-
tory for non-subpoenaed matters but added that the President was free
to make any material public at any time he chose.
One tape that the President could not find was a recording he claims
he made of his recollections of a meeting with ousted White House
Counsel, John Dean, who has alleged that Nixon was aware of the cover-
up of the Watergate Affair.
It was the third presidential tape recording promised to the court
which, the White House claimed, had not in fact been made.

LONDON (A) - Princess Anne and her dashing cav-
alry officer were married in a glittering ceremony in
Westminster Abbey yesterday, while the world watched
on television. Then they drove through cheering Lon-
don crowds in a horse-drawn coach, feasted on lobster
and partridge - and slipped away into the countryside.
Informants at Buckingham Palace said Anne and her
groom, Capt. Mark Phillips of the Royal Dragoons,
were spending their first honeymoon night at the home
of her cousin, Princess Alexandra, in the center of the
2,285-acre Richmond Park in South London.
THE YOUNG couple leave today on a flight to Bar-
bados where they will board the royal yacht Brit-
tania for an 18-day honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean
and the Pacific.
Married in one of the most public royal weddings
ever, the young couple paid a postmarriage visit to
the Royal Hospital Chelsea and slipped out a back en-
The royal wedding was the sensation of the British
press yesterday - except for Britain's Communist

Despite his current problems, President Nixon found time Tuesday night to sing and play the piano as first lady Pat Nixon clapped in time.
The occasion was a birthday celebration for Utah Senator Wallace Bennett, and was held at the Congressional Club in Washington.

cluded in the haul were 28 pounds

Kunnes denies any guilt, saying
his arrest was due to a lot of "un-

prisoner exchange and other issues,
with the prisoners to begin going
home this morning. The generals
sealed the deal by shaking hands
and swigging whisky toasts straight
from the bottle.
The prisoners are to be carried

Israel, according to a United Na-

as Egypt does.
The accord, reached yesterday in
a tent on the road to Cairo, wrap-

the U.S.-sponsored truce agreement
signed last Sunday.
The two sides have yet to agree
on starting talks regarding pro-
posed withdrawal to the cease-fire
lines of Oct. 22, the date the first
U.N. call went out to stop shooting.
OTHER POINTS settled yester-
