Old time religion
Sen. Harold Hughes (D-Iowa) announced in Des Moines
yesterday that he would not seek re-election in 1974 so
he can become a religious lay worker. A former gover-
nor elected to the Senate in 1968, Hughes has been a
leader in the Congress'.anti-war effort as well as a
staunch supporter of other liberal causes. In making
his announcement at a press conference Hughes said,
"Rightly or wrongly I believe I can reach more people
through a spiritual approach more effectively than I
have been able to achieve through the political ap-
proach."
Book banned
The Board of Education of Cranby, Conn., a small
New England hamlet has decided to ban Norman Mail-
er's "The Naked and The Dead" from a high school
reading list. "The most vital job any board of education
can do is assuming that responsibility of what our stud-
ents should study," said Joan Burns, one of the board
members who approved the measure. "I want books they
learn from -to be in better language than what they
hear in the lavatory," she added.

Academic heaven
Officials at the Coleridge Night School in Cambridge,
England, have come up with the perfect course for to-
day's ambitious college student. Entitled "The Art of
Doing Nothing", the course allows students to either
sit, sleep, read, write, doodle or simply gaze into space.
The school plans to offer the course for a bargain rate of
$3.75. The cheap price is possible, officials say, because
the class won't have a professor.

Dope note
According to London author and research sociologist
John Auld, the days of marijuana in England may well
be numbered. As a result of police crackdowns around
the country Auld claims, the drug has become increas-
ingly scarce and naturally more expensive. Auld pre-
dicts that if the present trend continues cannibas will
son acquire a status within the- drug scene like that
traditionally assodiated with cocaine- "an exotic symbol
of high living reserved for those who can both afford
its high black market price and enjoy the kind of
lifestyle where its use is relatively safe from detections
by the police."

President Nixon's fear of enemies, made famous in
ight of the Watergate scandal, apparently extends even
to members of his own family. The Washington Post
yesterday reported that the President had the telephone
of his brother, Donald Nixon, bugged for fear that his
brother's financial activities might embarrass the White
House. Those activities included a controversial loan
Donald received from recluse billionaire H o w a r d

xn ti-S talin
novel
MOSCOW ()-The Soviet secret
police (KGB) has seized an un-
published novel by Alexander Solz-
henitsyn, and thetwriter says he
fears it will lead to persecution of
some 200 persons named in the
book.
Solzhenitsyn, the 1970 Nobel
laureate, said in a statement yes-
terday that the KGB confiscated a
typewritten copy of the novel in
the "past few days" at Leningrad.
THE NOVEL is about Stalinist
labor camps.
The author said a woman he
identified as Yelizaveta Coronyan-
skaya revealed the location of the
manuscript after being interrogat-
ed without interruption for five
days.
"When she returned home, she
hanged herself," Solzhenitsyn said.
His statement provided no further
details on the woman.
SOLZHENITSYN SAID the book
is called "Arkhipelag GULAG" and
is about Soviet labor camps in the
years 1918 through 1956.
The book, apparently of a docu-
mentary nature, contains "only
real facts, places and names of
persons who are still alive - more
than 200 persons," Solzhenitsyn
said.
He said he issued the statement
because he fears that, with a copy
of the book in the hands of the
KGB, "persecution will begin for
all of them for the information
they gave 10 years ago about their
tortures in Stalinist camps."
THE TITLE of Solzhenitsyn's
book, "Arkhipelag G U L A G,"
the Sovietacronym for the main
administration of corrective labor
camps.
The novelist said in the interview
that the KGB had threatened his
life, but added that "my death will
not make happy those people who
count on my death to stop my lit-
erary activities.
"Immediately after my death, or
immediately after I have disap-
peared or have been deprived of
my liberty," the novelist said, "my
literary last will and testament
will irrevocably come into force
And then the main body of my
works will start being published
-works I have refrained from pub-
lishing all these years."
SOLZHENITSYN d e c 1 i n e d
then to go into detail on this un-
published body of works, but ap-
parently copies have already been
deposited in the West for safe-
keeping.
Western and Soviet readers got
their first close look at Stalin's la-
bor camps through a Solzhenitsyn
novelette called "One Day In the
Life of Ivan Denisovich," publish-
ed in 1962.
Publication of the book was per-
mitted in the Soviet Union, but it
and other Solzhenitsyn novels have
since been banned.

All suet asked to
bOyCOtt first payment
By DAN BIDDLE
Student Government Council (SGC) last night called on
students throughout the University to join in a tuition strike
in defiance of the record 24 per cent tuition increase approved
by the Regents this summer.
Council President Lee Gill urged specifically that stu-
dents seek a rollback of tuition to last year's levels by refusing
to pay the first of three installments on their total fee assess-

ment.
AFTER BRIEF discussion, SGC
worded resolution of support for
a tuition strike of the student
body" aimed at thwarting the mas-
sive fee increase, which the reso-
lution branded as a decision made
"in secret, with total disregard for
the well-being of the students."
SGC plans to follow up the strike
resolution today with distribution
of leaflets urging students to
"pocket your September tuition in-
stallment," and petitions seeking
pledges of support for the strike.
Gill said SGC would attempt to
"see where Joe Student is at" over
the next few days and move to-
ward announcing specific demands
and actions sometime next week.
THE WORDING of last night's
declaration was left intentionally
vague to allow room for discussion
of strategy: While most of the
Council members present lauded
Gill's proposal to seek withholding
of Sept. 28 fee payments, one mem-
ber expressed fears about the con-
sequences of "holding back the
money we owe the University."
Approval of the strike action
came on the heels of Gill's impas-
sioned plea Wednesday night to
incoming freshmen to "join with
the entire student body in the
struggle against the University's
tyranny" by withholding tuition
money.
Gill, speaking in a formal wel-
coming ceremony attended by some
600 new students, was interrupted
several times by applause as he
asked his audience to "subtract the
difference from last year (in tui-
tion) and put it in your pocket
. . and we can make them bend
to us for once."
ALLAN SMITH, the University's
vice president for academic affairs,
said Gill's Wednesday night decla-
ration was "quite a shock to me. "
"I doubt if it will be successful,"
Smith commented, but he admitted
that massive withholding of tuition
fees would "certainly create a
crisis for the University."
He refused to comment last night
on what action the University might
take in the face of substantial sup-
port for SGC's call-to-arms, but
chided Gill for "an inaccurate view
of the situation.''
"FROM THE VERY beginning,
our work on tuition has been done
in total regard for the well-being
of the programs intended for the

editor dies
Leonard A. Greenbaum, assistant
director and editor in the Michigan
Memorial-Phoenix Project of the
University, died suddenly at his
home here yesterday. He was 43.
Greenbaum, who was a writer
most of his life, is best known for
the articles he authored on the
development of nuclear energy. The
Phoenix Project, in which he play-
ed a major role, is one of the best
known nuclear research programs
in the country.
"DR. GREENBAUM w ill be
sorely missed by the University,"
said Prof. William Kerr, director
of the Phoenix Project. "In his
role as assistant director of the
Phoenix Project, Dr. Greenbaum
participated in a wide range of-
activities related to peaceful uses
of nuclear energy . .. His warmth
and perception as a human being
and his interest in people made
friends for him throughout the
University and the community."'
Greenbaum is survived by his
widow, Judith, and four children.
Funeral services will be held at
11:30 a.m. Friday at the Beth Israel
Chapel.
Greenbaum joined the University
staff in 1953 as a teaching fellow
in the department of English lan-
guage and literature. He was a
writer-producer with the University
Television Center from 1958 to 1960.
HE JOINED the Phoenix Project
in 1960, and became assistant di-
rector in 1964.
Born in Boston on Sept. 30, 1930,
Greenbaum received a B.A. degree
from the University in 1952, a
M.A. in 1953, and a Ph.D. in 1963.
He won a Hopwood Award in
drama in 1953.
Greenbaum authored two books,
"The Hound and the Horn, the His-
tory of a Literary Quarterly," pub-
lished in 1966, and "Out of Shape,"
a novel published in 1969. Green-
baum also wrote plays, short

Chances for c n 10flct
blues fest downplayed

By DAVID STOLL
As tonight's opening of the 1973
Blues and Jazz Festival neared,
spokespersons for the festival and
the city police attempted yesterday
to allay fears of confrontation be-
tween police and festival-goers.
According to Police Chief Walter
Krasny, 26 officers will be on hand
at the event, which is expected to
draw between 15,000 and 20,000 to
the Otis Spann Memorial Field for
each of five shows this weekend.

The planned police presence rep-
resents a dramatic increase over
last year's level, when only a hand-
ful of officers went inside the gates
to guard cashboxes.
WORRY OVER a confrontation
between police and the crowd
stems from statements made by
Krasny and Mayor James Stephen-
son indicating that the city would
no longer tolerate the kind of mass
marijuana law violations for which

Ann Arbor has become so famous.
Following the arrest of two peo-
ple at the ill-attended "Marijuana
Melee" on the Diag last Saturday,
Krasny declared that his depart-
ment would "no longer tolerate the
open trafficking of marijuana at
public functions."
Stephenson bacied Krasny, warn-
ing that "when group violations are
announced, the police aren't going
to ignore it anymore."
YESTERDAY, however, Krasny
said he "doubted" that casual drug
users would be bothered by the
police unless they "deliberately
flout themselves" before an officer.
"We're aiming at the pill-push-
ers," he explained.
RMM spokespersons yesterday
also discounted fears that the po-
lice presence would lead to trouble.
CALLING STEPHENSON'S and
Krasny's statements a "provoca-
tive act," RMM board chairman
John Sinclair termed the issue of
police at the festival "phony" and
said, "We don't want to heat the
situation up."

of government combined, according to a study released today by
