By AP, UPI, and Reuters
Increased fighting was reported yesterday in re-
peated breaches of the Vietnam cease-fire as the
Joint Military Commission, meeting in Saigon, broke
up in acrimonious dispute over a technicality.
The South Vietnamese command reported nearly
500 violationsbycommunist forces in the first 24
hours of the cease-fire, while in a radio broadcast
Hanoi accused the Saigon government of "unceas-
ingly violating" the truce throughout South Vietnam.
Casualties since the cease-fire total more than
2,000, according to Saigon. The first American killed
since the cease-fire, Anthony Dal Pozzo of Santa

Band China bound?
The marching men and women of Michigan, home from
their guest appearance at the Superbowl, may be in for even
greater things. Band Director George Cavender told us yester-
day that the National Committee on U. S.-Chinese Relations-
an ad hoc group which organizes cultural exchanges between the
Peoples Republic and the U. S. - has asked him to submit
information on the band with a view to a possible China tour.
The request was not an invitation to actually visit China. Whe-
ther that will ever happen lies in the tea leaves of the people
who decide such things, and they aren't telling.
Bye, bye, Eugene
Ann Arbor Police Capt. Eugene Staudenmaier, a man whose
attendance record at campus demonstrations was as good as even
the most devoted radicals', has retired from the police force.
The mild-mannered cop, star of such illustrious episodes as the
1967 obscenity bust of Flaming Creatures, a movie which would
get a GP rating by today's standards, will retire with his wife
to Florida to fish, eat yogurt and do as little else as possible.
Said police chief Walter Krasny of his former campus intelli-
gence officer: "He's one of a kind."
Prof. Mattis dies at 30
Peter Mattis, an assistant professor in the University's psy-
chology department, died Saturday of an apparent heart attack.
Mattis, a native New Yorker, joined the psychology department
three years -ago. He was engaged in research in community
psychology and was a consultant to the city police department.

LANSING--State Representative Jackie Vaughn (D-Detroit)
yesterday introduced an omnibus collection of four bills aimed
at protecting news gatherers from the whims of courts, defense
lawyers and prosecutors. The bills, said Vaughn, would, if
passed, "protect all newsmen in both print and broadcast media
from any conceivable legal action from anybody for refusing to
break the confidentiality of their cources, or to hand over infor-
mation." Today unequivocably endorses Vaughn's action. Write
NEW YORK-A French-born heroin smuggler described as
the biggest narcotics operator ever caught in U. S. history was

bringing in a ton of narcotics a year, until he was nabbed by the
The numbers game
WASHINGTON-That other great numbers game--not the
Michigan State lottery-will continue despite the rumors of its
death. Defense Secretary Melvin Laird said yesterday that a
conscription lottery will be held this, spring despite the end of
the draft. Just in case.
The great bank robbery
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif-Banks have been run on,
bombed and robbed. Now, police say, someone has tried to steal
one. Police reported Sunday that Richard John Lee, 26, broke
into a motor home used as a portable Bank of America branch,
ransacked it and then tried to drive off with it. Officers said
Lee was unable to get the vehicle into gear and asked two men
at a nearby service station for aid. But the sight of the ransacked
interior and the "Bank of America" painted on the vehicle
"aroused their suspicion." The men called police, who took Lee
into custody without incident. He was booked for investigation
of theft, police said.
Big Board slips
NEW YORK-Saddled with a variety of domestic and inter-
national concerns, the stock market yesterday fell to its lowest
level in 11-weeks. The setback, which stretched the market's
losing streak to six sessions, reflected investor concern about
inflation, tighter money and rising interest rates. Some analysts
suggested there is a fear that'the three factors combined might
alter the bullish outlook for corporate profits and the overall
economy in the months ahead.

Although the U. S. and South Vietnamese de-
manded that they offer such documents, the cease-
fire agreement makes no mention of credentials in
its section on the military commission.
The two sides were said to have accused each
other of cease-fire violations. One source said the
meeting accomplished "absolutely nothing."
While the meeting was in progress, two U. S. Air
Force transport planes flew in from Hanoi carry-
ing about ninety North Vietnamese officials. Like an
earlier party of communist representatives, the

SOCIAL PROGRAMS CUT

By AP, UPI, and Reuters
WASHINGTON-President Nixon sent a $268.7 billion
budget to Congress yesterday, demanding that the lawmak-
ers stay within that limit or take full blame for inflation and
Although the budget was the largest in history, Nixon
made sweeping cuts in a wide variety of social programs-
mostly in the health, education, welfare and job training
programs of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society.
Cuts were also made in defense-including already-
ordered missiles, aircraft, and ships-but the overall figure
for defense spending was another record high because of
But even with the cuts, spending increases in other
areas pushed the budget eight per -
cent above Nixon's self-imposed
$250 billion spending ceiling for the
current financial year.
"It is time to get big government
off your back and out of your

radio speech Sunday, the opening
