Nixon speech highlights

Il

Countries offer aid
to war-torn Vietnam

WASHINGTON P) -- Here are
highlights of President Nixon's
address last night announcing an
agreement to end the war in Viet-
nam:
The following statement is being
issued at this moment in Wash-
ington and Hanoi:
"At 12:30 Paris time today, Jan.
23, 1973, the agreement on ending
the war and restoring peace in
Vietnam was initialed ...
"The agreement will be formally
signed by the parties participating
in the Paris conference on Viet-
nam on Jan. 27, 1973, at the Inter-
national Conference C e n t e r in
Paris."

Throughout the years of nego-
tiations, we have insisted on peace
with honor . . In the settlement
that has now been agreed to, all
the conditions that I laid down on
Jan. 25 and May 8, 1972 have been
met.
-A cease-fire, internationally
supervised, will begin at 7 p.m.
this Saturday, Jan. 27, Washington
time.
-Within 60 days from this Sat-
urday, all Americans held prisoner
of war throughout Indochina will
be released. There will be the full-
est possible accounting for all of
those who are missing in action.
-During the same 60-day period

all American forces will be with-
drawn from South Vietnam.
-The people of South Vietnam
have been guaranteed the right to
determine their own future without
o u t s i d e interference. By joint
agreement, the fulltext of the
agreement and the protocols to
carry it out will be released to-
morrow ...
This settlement meets the goals
and has the full support of Presi-
dent Thieu and the government of
the Republic of Vietnam, as well
as that of our other allies who are
affected.
The United States will continue
to recognize the government of the
Republic of Vietnam as the sole
legitimate government of South
Vietnam. We shall continue to aid
South Vietnam within the terms
of the agreement .. -
All parties must now see to it
that this is a peace that lasts, and
also a peace that heals-..
This will mean that the terms
of the agreement must be scrupul-
ously adhered to. We shall do
everything the agreement requires
of us and we shall expect the other
parties to do everything it requires
of them .. .

trade - particularly with North
Vietnam.
Foreign M i n i s t e r Masayoshi
Ohira has already promised Japa-
nese participation in an interna-
tional conference on reconstruc-
tion.
. A leading Japanese private re-
search body predicts North and
South Vietnam will require $12-15
billion for rehabilitation and de-
velopment over the next 10 years,
of which Japan could expect to
contribute up to $3 billion.
In Britain, the government said
it was very glad that after all
these years of war there is an
agreement on Vietnam.
"The opportunity is now there to
convert it into an enduring peace
throughout Indochina," a foreign
office statement said.
West Germany greeted Nixon's
announcement of a ceasefire agree-
ment with an expression of "re-
lief."
"West Germany welcomes the
announcement that a ceasefire
agreement will be signed on Satur-
day, and hopes that therewith the

foundations have been laid for
peace in Indochina," a government
spokesman said in a written state-
ment.
Foreign Secretary Mitchell Sharp
of Canada welcomed the prospects
of peace, but said his government
had not yet decided whether to
take part in an international cease-
fire observer force in Vietnam.
He said the Cabinet must see the
cease-fire agreement before ac-
cepting an invitation to commit
Canadian troops to the planned
four-country observer group.

caisson for a march up Constitu-
tion Avenue - from a point within
view of the White House - to the
Capitol Rotunda.
President Nixon and other dig-
nitaries are expected to accom-
pany the hour-long procession,
scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.
Then the casket will be placed
upon the Lincoln Cataflaque, be-
neath the Capitol dome, where
Johnson will lie in state through-
out the night. The U. S. Army band
will play four "Ruffles and Flour-
ishes" and then "Hail to the Chief"
as his body is transferred.
Following an hour-long service,
including hymns and eulogies, for
the official party, the rotunda will
be opened to the public, at about
4 p.m.

The line of mourners will be
closed at about 8 a.m. tomorrow
when Johnson will be moved by
hearse to the National Christian
City Church for a 10. a.m. service.
Then there is a flight back to Tex-
as for the burial near the LBJ
ranch.
The former President's death
leaves the nation without a living
ex-president for the first time in
40 years .For only the second time,
flags are being flown at half-staff
for two former chief executives.
Johnson's death Monday night
came within a month of former
President Harry Truman's on Dec.
26. The only other time when flags
were flown at half-staff for two
ex-presidents was when Thomas
Jefferson and John Adams died
on the same day - July 4, 1826.

Film groups compete
for student viewers

(Continued from Page 1)
Relationships between the film
groups, in an admittedly tight mar-
ket, seem to be somewhat strain-
ed. While most groups charge a
dollar or $1.25 for their films, Me-
diatrics charges only $.75.
Lopatin said, "We're not trying
to compete with Cinema Guild or
Cinema II. It would be senseless
to do so. They show different kinds
of films."
He denied that his group would
affect Cinema Guild.
ESP talk
presented
By SUE TRETHEWEY
"ESP exists best when the per-
son is in an altered state of con-
sciousness," Dr. Stanley Krippner
said yesterday during his lecture
on "Developments in Parapsychol-
ogy in Russia and the U.S.".
Krippner, director of Maimo-
nidies Hdspital Dream Research
Laboratory in New York, was the
first in a series of speakers spon-
sored by the University Activities
Center and the Office of Religious
Affairs. The 12 lectures are part
of the required curriculum for
Geography 303, "Future Worlds,".
taught by Prof. Bernard Nietsch-
mann.
Addressing an audience of over
400, Krippner detailed recent dis-
coveries in ESP research.
"A person's volitional control of
the magnetic fields give them pow-
ers of psycho-kinesis," he con-
tinued. "PK," as it is called, is the
ability to move an object without
touching it.
He demonstrated this phenome-
non with a film of a Russian wo-
man rolling an object back and
forth on a table while holding her
hand a few inches away from it.

"They were in (financial) trouble
before we even entered the pic-
ture," h e s a i d. "Mediatrics
wouldn't make the difference."
Lopatin said the fact that Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, his most simi-
lar rival, shows films on Tuesday
and Thursday, while his group
screens on weekends, means that
these two groups will not conflict.
Bill Clark, a member of Cinema
II, says he does not think the
broadly-based, commercially ap-
pealing flicks scheduled by the
UAC group will pose any "serious
economic threat" to the varied
Cinema II slate, which he de-
scribes as "selectively schizo-
phrenic."
However, he said that the high
rental rates Mediatrics has ac-
cepted set a damaging fiscal pre-
cedent among city film groups,
which have been trying to keep
about a 50 per cent ceiling on
rentals.
Lopatin admits that for "2001:
A Space Odessey" his profit was
"negligible", quoting a figure in
the neighborhood of $20.
The groups have been less than
cooperative with regards to lend-
ing each other equipment. Lopatin
claimed that Cinema II and
Cinema Guild refused to lend him
a special lens needed for the
screening of 2001, even though the
two other groups were not using it.
Bob Honeyman of Cinema II,
however, indicated that Lopatin's
request for the lens "assumed a
basis of friendliness that hasn't
been established yet."
Because of the expensive nature
of the lens Cinema II and Cinema
Guild's policy is that the only
other group to use the lens is the
Ann Arbor Film Co-op.
Honeyman said that offering the
lens to Mediatrics and none, of the
other new groups would be "dis-
criminatory."
Lopatin termed the action of
Cinema II and Cinema Guild as
"childish." "I was screwed by the
other film groups," he complained.
