Cam pus Corners robbed
At almost the same time President Nixon was announcing
a cease-fire agreement in Vietnam, two men robbed the Campus
Corners drug store of an undetermined amount of money. Ac-
cording to witnesses the two entered the store at about 10:15
p.m. and ordered customers into a corner. Cash registers were
emptied and the thieves escaped into the night.
More machines, shorter lines
It appears you will not have to wait in line for hours to cast
your ballot in the next election. City Council put aside $12,000
to lease 24 additional voting machines for the February primary
and the April general elections. This should reduce the voter-
voting machine ratio to 400 persons to one machine. City
officials hope that this, along with a smaller ballot, will make
voting easier than it was last November.
11 families face eviction
11 families living in public housing face eviction proceedings
this week for not making arrangements to repay back rent
the city claims they owe. The action was part of a campaign to
lower the amount of back rent owed the. city and decrease the
Housing Commission's program deficit. 33 other families have
paid or are in the process of repaying the city.

Hey! Wake up
NEW YORK - The manufacturer of Geritol was fined
$812,000 Monday for false advertising. The firm, was cited for
claiming that Geritol was effective against tiredness symptoms
in 11 separate television commercials shown on 100 occassions.
The fine - $456,000 against J. B. Williams Co. and $356,000
against its wholly owned advertising subsidiary, Parkson Ad-
vertising Agency Inc. - is believed to be the highest ever for
violating Federal Trade Commission regulations against false
advertising. It. appears Geritol finally woke some one up.
A doggie story
STATESVILLE, N.C. - Polly, a little furry white spitz, was
killed by other dogs before she could begin to enjoy her inherit-
ance. Polly had been willed an income of $480 a year from
stocks left by her mistress, 72-year-old Anne Robinson Cowan,
who died shortly before her pet did. Cowans's will stipulated
that income from 192 shares of Reynolds Industries stock go to
any family that would agree to give Polly a good home. Nobody
would, so she was placed in a dog pound where she died from
puncture wounds in the throat inflicted by other dogs. On the
death of the dog, the stock, worth more than $10,000, would be
returned to the family.

President Nixon's announcement of a ceasefire in Vietnam brought
statements of relief from members of Congress last night-but doubts
that the war is over for the Vietnamese.
Meanwhile, countries around the world sprung forth with offers
of immediate aid for war-ravaged North and South Vietnam.
Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho), a long-standing war critic, said
last night, "We have fought the war with so many illusions. Let us
have no illusions about the peace.
"It is no more than a truce," he added, "and it may last no
longer than the earlier truce in 1954 when the French withdrew."
"The key question: is can .this peace last," said Sen. Edmund
Muskie (D-Maine). "Can it lead to healing in South Vietnam?"
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) expressed "profound relief that
these years of the nation's sacrifice and tragedy and bitterness are
"Our prayer now," he said, "is that the peace we have attained
is a true peace, not only for America but for all the people of Viet-
nam, North and South."
Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.) was optimistic.
"The final departure of American forces from Indochina," Hum-
phrey said, "will mean more than the end of the war. It will mean that
we in America can once again turn our attention to our urgent
domestic needs ;and it will also mean that the people of Vietnam,
North and South, can begin to rebuild their war-torn countries."
Said Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.): "Thank God, I pray it sticks."
Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) said never in U.S. history has a
President "acted so courageously" not only in the face of opposition
from the enemy but unprecedented criticism at home.
"The American people owe President Nixon a deep debt of
gratitude," Goldwater said. "His critics owe him an apology."
Democratic Sen. Philip Hart of Michigan, a critic of the war,
said his first reaction was "a tentative whoopee.
Sen. George Aiken (R-Vt.), a senior member of the Foreign
Relations Committee, said, "I think the agreement is the best that
could be obtained under the circumstances."
He added he expected the Nixon Administration would seek
funds to help the reconstruction of North Vietnam.
"I do not know what that price is but the price would be cheap
compared to carrying on the war," he commented.
Gerald Ford, Republican leader in the House of Representatives,
said Nixon's announcement "is news all the world had been agoniz-
Clark Clifford, defense secretary in the Johnson Administration,
said: "I fear that the continued participation President Nixon has
arranged in Vietnam means a further commitment in Vietnam."
He was referring to American involvement in the political

Visiting Political Science Prof.

little doubt that the accord will,
in fact, be violated. ,"The question
is," she said, "after they break

Kelleher further speculated that a
U.S. miiltary return-at least in

Mayor Robert Harris led a

relief that an end to the fighting
