Program for disabled
The University announced yesterday it has received
a $77,000 grant from HEW to establish the nation's first
Disabled Student Services Program. A whole series of
special services for disabled student is being planned
under the program including a special "dial-a-ride"-type
van, special scholarships and counseling services, special
adaptive devices such as page turners and pencil hold-
ers, and job placement services to prevent discrimina-
tion against qualified disabled graduates. The program
will be run through the Office of Special Services and
Programs of the Office of Student Services.
Gas rationing a mistake
A University business professor says gas rationing
would be the worst way to deal with the present energy
shortage. Prof. Ross Wilhelm of the Graduate School of
Business Administration says the huge bureaucracy
necessary to run any rationing program would result in
"an enormous mess" including black market and crimi-
nal activity. Wilhelm suggests instead indirect rationing
by raising the price of gas. He says politicians now
clamoring for rationing "seem to have lost their cool
and are hell-bent on the greatest overkill we have seen

UAW hits Greek regime
United Auto Workers President Leonard Woodcock
called yesterday for an end to U. S. support of what he
called the "discredited" Greek regime and urged back-
ing for a free-elected government in Greece. Woodcock
said his 1.5-million member union "stands in solidarity
with Greek students and others demonstrating against
continuation of the Greek dictatorship. We call for an
end to U. S. support of this tyrannical government and
for free elections in which all Greeks participate." He
said the Greek regime had survived on U. S. financial
credits and arms since coming to power in 1967 and
added that U. S. weapons are now being turned against

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The
Soviet Union probably shipped nu-
clear weapons to Egypt during theN
October Middle East war, U.S.
officials believe, according to the
Pentagon spokesman Jerry Fried-
heim declined to comment on thet
newspaper's report, which said thex
nuclear weapons were still be-
lieved to be in Egypt although un-
der strict Russian control.
THE RUSSIAN weapons are be-
lieved to be atomic warheadsof
Soviet-built Scud missiles, which r :<
were reported to have been ship-
ped to Egypt before or during the
Middle East fighting, the Washing-
ton Post said.
The Scud missile is said to have i
a range of up to 180 miles, which
would make it capable of hitting
Israeli cities from Egyptian ter-
The usually well-informed Amer-
ican magazine Aviation Week re-
ported earlier this month that the
Soviet Union had sent Scud mis-
siles to Egypt and said that the
United States had satellite pictures
to prove it.
ORIGINALLY, U.S.tfficials were
reported to believe that the Scud ;
missiles in Egypt were armed with
conventional, high - explosive war- ;
Early this month, a senior De-
fense Department official told re-
porters there was "no confirma-
tory evidence" that the Soviet
Union had sent nuclear warheads

WASHINGTON-The nomination of Gerald Ford to be vice
president cleared its first congressional hurdle yesterday and
headed for an early confirmation vote in the Senate.
All nine members of the Senate Rules Committee voted to
recommend approval of the nomination to the Senate, where
a vote is set for next week.
THE ACTION followed weeks of investigations and hearings into
Ford's personal, political and financial background that began after
President Nixon named him to replace former Vice President Spiro
Agnew, who resigned Oct. 10.
Rules Committee chairman Howard Cannon (D-Nev.) said the
panel conducted "an inquiry of historic proportions" on Ford, a Mich-
igan congressman and House Republican leader. -
Reporting the nomination to the Senate floor, he said the five
Democrats and four Republicans acted with the 'very real possibility
that the nominee could become President of the United States."
HEARINGS ON the Ford nomination continue in the House Judiciary
Committee with a vote expected there sometime next week.
A House vote is scheduled for no later than Dec. 6.
Cannon said the Rules committee voted after discussing three final

THE CHARGE by the lobbyist,
Robert Winter-Berger, has been
denied by Ford, and the Senate
Rules Committee already has dis-
credited Winter-Berger's allegation.
Some of its members said last
week he had given conflicting tes-
timony and a probe was being
made regarding possibly perjury.
Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker testi-
fied for more than two hours in
closed session before the House
Judiciary Committee yesterday but
told reporters he had said noth-
ing beyond his testimony before
the Senate panel that Ford visited
him only once for about 15 minutes.
Hutschnecker, a New York psy-
chotherapist, said many of the
House members repeated the same
question in different ways-why
did Ford visit him?
REPORTERS ASKED what that
answer is and he said, "Well, peo-
ple come by to meet me."
MEMPHIS (Reuter) -President
Nixon yesterday assured Republi-
can governors he did not know of
any political time bombs ticking
away that could explode into more
sensational headlines about the
Watergate bugging scandal.
Nixon, carrying his Watergate
defense personally to 17 state
chiefs, said again that he would not
resign and would not permit his
declining popularity, as recorded
in public opinion polls, to drive him
TENNESSEE GOV. W i n f i e l d
Dunn told reporters that at the
90-minute meeting the President
was asked to comment on a state-
ment here yesterday by pollster
George Gallup that the Watergate
affair was a time bomb that could
seriously damage the Republican
party in the 1976 Presidential elec-
Dunn quoted the President as
saying "If there are any (more
time bombs) I am not aware of
them. If there is any information
yet to be revealed, it is information
I do not have."
The President flew here in an
attempt to allay the worries of the
Republican governors about the
impact of Watergate on their party.
HE ALSO HOPED to sweep away
any lingering suspicions among
the governors that there was more
to disclose about the bugging scan-
Dunn and three other governors
-Robert Ray of Iowa, Christopher
Bond of Missouri, and James Hol-
shouser of North Carolina - said
they were impressed by the ex-
planations they heard yesterday.
"There was unanimity that the
President is moving in the right
direction and that he is moving
up," Dunn said.
THE ANXIETY of the governors
to get as detailed an explanation
as possible from the President
aboutaWatergate was gauged from
the fact that almost all the ques-
tions put to him dealt with he

His collection of Miller material
includes plays, short stories, the
novel Focus, newspaper and maga-
zine articles, half a dozen bi-
ographies, interviews, dialogue
scripts, theatre recordings and an
operetta based on The Crucible.
The idea of having the display
at this semester's mini-course
came to Holtzman after reading
about Miller's Michigan adjunct
professorship in the New York
Times. He contacted Richard
Meyer, head of the University's
Professional Theater Program, who
rejoiced at the idea.
There are tentative plans for the
collection to be displayed this
spring when Miller's play-in-prog-
ress, The American Clock, is pre-
sented. The books, scripts and pro-
grams would be exhibited free of
charge and shown with notes and a
"MY COLLECTION explains my
own times to myself." Holtzman
says. "History books couldn't do
it for me, so I turned to literature.
Good works of literature are more
truthful and of more value than
corresponding works in history."
The collection includes approxi-
mately twenty-five playwrights and
most major authors from 1900 to
the present, but Holtzman speaks
of William Faulkner and Norman
Mailer as special favorites.
"Falkner's the best because of
content," he says. "He had an
exceptional historical location-at
the crossroads of two Great themes
