Impeachment march
Supporters of the movement to impeach President Nix-
on will rally on the Diag at noon today for speakers,
guerrilla theatre, and a march to Republican Congress-
man Marvin Esch's office on Huron at Fourth St. March-
ers will be carrying Esch petitions with over 3,000 signa-
tures of local voters favoring impeachment. Today's'
march will replace the one scheduled for last Friday
that was postponed due to bad weather.
The day after
In a Speech 100 lecture entitled "Limits of Communi-
cations Effects," associate professor and a loser in last
night's Fourth Ward race William Colburn warned stu-
dents that a speech can effect listeners in unexpected
ways. "We must ask ourselves what prevents us from
being successful in communication," he said. Amid guf-
faws from the audience, Colburn alluded to his unex-
pected defeat, "I spent a lot of time trying to convince
Fourth Ward voters into accepting my views, but now I
realize that a tremendous amount of people don't share
them." Concluding the class early, Colburn cautioned,
"Never show disrespect for other people's views."
HRP celebrates
As the HRP victory celebration continued into its
second day yesterday, the party's Second Ward winner,
Kathy Kozachenko, commented on Monday night's elec-
tion results. Kozachenko, who campaigned openly as a
lesbian, said "This victory is significant because for
the first time in this country, an openly gay person has
been elected to City Council. Ten years ago, being open-
ly gay would've meant automatic defeat. We've picked
up a good deal of votes we haven't had before and our
victories have proven that this is just a beginning-
we'll be around for a long time to stay."
UHC race set
The University Housing Council (UHC), an all-student
committee on residencehall policy, voted yesterday to
hold its elections during pre-registration. Seats open In-
clude those of the president and seven dorm district
representatives. Anyone who wants to serve a half year
term on the Council must file with the SGC secretary, on
the third floor of the Union, between Friday April 5
and Tuesday April 16.
UAC recruiting
The University Activities Center (UAC) is looking
for students interested in producing next year's Soph
Show or MUSKET productions, or students interested in
being on the central coordinating committees of Future
Worlds, UAC Travel, or Mediatrics. Newcomers are wel-
come! Applications and 4further information are avail-
able at the UAC Travel Office, Second floor, Michigan
Union. Applications are due April 5, 1974.
MERC election

Employment Relations Commission (MERC) election
which will make or break the Graduate Employes Or-
ganization (GEO) as sole bargaining agent for the Uni-
versity's teaching assistants. GEO must get the approv-
al of at least 51 per cent of the TFs and research assist-
ants and staff assistants who vote in the three-day elec-
tions to obtain legal sanction from MERC.

of the French Cabinet's efforts to deal with
these problems, but just as the govern
ment began focusing on internal issues, a
bitter squabble over oil policy and the At-
lantic partnership erupted with the United
U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
and French Foreign Minister Michel Jo-
bert exchanged charges of bad faith. Wash-
ington accused the French of willfully im-
peding U. S. policies, and Parish claimed
the United States was trying to set the
members ofethe European Common Mar-
ket against each other.
IN RECENT weeks, Pompidou - the real
architect of French foreign policy - acted
to tone down the dispute. But he warned
nt his last Cabinet meeting March 27 that
he would reject U. S. attempts to control
European policy.
Relations with the United States and
the Common Market are two of the issues
dividing the Gaullists and their leftist op-
ponents, and - once the period of mourn-
ing is over - are sure to be injected into

ele ct ion results
City Council last night formally certified the results of
Monday night's election confirming the passage of the famous
$5 marijuana fine and the victory of Second Ward HRP candi-
date Kathy Kozachenko.
Council also voted to discontinue the practice of borrow-
ing money from the Park Fund for bailing out other city pro-
grams in urgent need of cash.
THE POSSIBILITY of consolidating the city's health department
with the county health department was also explored, and council
approved the rezoning of an 87 acre parcel of:land so that progress can

time and place of Patricia Hearst's
release will be disclosed within 78
hours, a communique bearing the
signature of the Symbionese Liber-

The communique was received
late yesterday by a biweekly un-
derground newspaper, the Phoe-
nix. Also enclosed was what looked
like half of the kidnaped news-
paper heiress' driver's license. The
newspaper said it had confirmed
the authenticity of the partial li-
cense which was Ms. Hearst's cor-
rect birth date and her signature.
The newspaper said it had re-
ceived the communique wrapped
in a dozen long-stem roses, which
were delivered by a local florist.
"IF IT'S TRUE we're delighted,"
said a statement released by mil-
lionaire Randolph H e a r s t, Ms.
Heart's father. "It sounds like
their (SLA's) communique. I wish
to believe it."
There was no way to confirm
that the communique was authen-

Congressman Marvin Esch yes-
terday lashed out what he called
"inexcusable bureaucratic bungl-
ing" by the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare (HEW) in
handling a scholarship program to
help needy students become doc-
tors, dentists, nurses, and other
heailth specialists.
The program, enacted by Con-
gress more than 17 months ago,
was designed to help supply health
workers to over 5,000 communities
listed by the Health Services and
Mental Health Administration as
having no health care services.
Office of Health Manpower De-
velopment (OHMD), which is im-
plementing the program, has been
working at an unreasonably slow
rate which has virtually elimi-
nated the program.
James Kissinger, a spokesman
for the OHMD, said yesterday he
was "as embarrassed as anyone"
about the length of time the office
spent in getting the program into
Kissinger said Manpower was
given two alternatives, to wait un-
til next year, or to try to work
under pressure to give as many
scholarships as possible this year,
"I guess we overestimated our-
selves," he admitted.
AS A RESULT of the agency's
slowness, students who accepted
grants through the program this
year will serve a year after gradu-
ation to pay off only two and a
half months of aid.
The scholarship p r o g r a m, as
passed by Congress, specifies that
eligible students receiveaid in
monthly installments to6 cover the
costs of tuition, books, school sup-
plies, and medical expenses. The
stipend was set at $600 per month,
a rate comparable to pay and al-
lowances of armed forces second
lieutenant or ensign.
