Green goes to court
Controversial Prof. Mark Green, denied tenure by the chem-
istry department, plans to have his day in court. Green, who
raised hairs on the backs of department bigwigs by showing
antiwar slides to his classes, says "I either want to get tenure,
or find out the real reason why it was denied." Green is now
searching for a lawyer to represent him, and will also appeal
his case to LSA Dean Frank Rhodes and the LSA Executive Com-
mittee-the last resort within the University.
The Human Rights Party overwhelmingly elected local party
member Robert Alexander as their statewide organizer. Alex-
ander, who lost in a bid for the citywide coordinating position,
received almost three times as many votes for the state post
as did his closest competitor.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-Columnist Jack Anderson, who has
been on the journalistic skids since the Eagleton Fiasco, is at-
tempting a comeback. This time he claims the Pentagon has top
secret papers which predict final, military victory in Vietnam-

from the Joint Chiefs of Staff, forsee a swift end to any sem-

CHICAGO-It was announced yesterday that Dwight Chapin,
former Nixon aide who was recently implicated in the Water-
gate scandal, will join United Air Lines as director of market
planning. Chapin, who many observers feel was forced to leave
the Nixon inner circle, thus completes his move from one fly-
by-night operation to another.
WASHINGTON-The Nixon administration, in what is ap-
parently a rare slap in the face to the automotive industry, has
asked that automakers foot the bill for fixing vehicles recalled

cars over six years old.

WASHINGTON-Apparently scandalized by the Supreme
Court's recent decision which cleared the way for women to

Lawrence Hogan (R-Md.) has proposed a constitutional amend-

bankrupt" for its decision. When the ruling was made, he says,

An appreciative and admiring
crowd filled Hill Aud. to its 4000
seat capacity yesterday to hear
Supreme Court Justice William
Douglas deliver a speech entitled
"Future of Our Political System."
Part of a lecture series called
Future Worlds, the Douglas address
was consistent with the liberal and
sometimes radical approach to po-
litical problems that has character-
ized the justice's opinions for over
"The time for the more moderate
political solutions has now passed,"
the 73 year old Douglas stated.
"We are at a critical stage."
"But our problems , cannot be
solved by new laws," he added. "It
will take a grassroots movement."
"My generation is rather bank-
rupt politically-rolling along on
their golden gravy train," he jested
to the crowd. "Some of you will
hop on it too."
Douglas then moved to the prob-
lems of our governmental system.
" We are in an age of submissive-
ness-marching in line to the tune
of one drummer," he said.

SAIGON - Fighting blazed

Saigon, watching the continuing
violations of the ceasefire.

fighting in Vietnam remained
widespread and heavy.

mean the offensive was dying
out. What it meant, military
sources said, was that that Viet-
Cong and North Vietnamese had
fully committed themselves
across the country and were now
concentrating on holding what
they had won.
The largest new outbreaks of
fighting were reported in the cen-
tral highlands along the only
road link between the major ci-
ties of Pleiku and Kotitum.
During the first two days after
the ceasefire, South Vietnamese

City Council last night approved temporary financial aid to con-

Currently Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
grants provide most funds for Model Cities' annual $1 million budget.
The federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) froze a HUD
grant expected to finance the program this year.
Consequently, council approved $72,000 to continue the Model Cities
Program through March 4. The resolution was passed by a 7-3, vote.
Councilmen William Colburn (R-Third Ward), Richard Hadler (R-
Fourth Ward), and Bruce Benner (R-Fourth Ward) cast the dissenting
City Administrator Guy Larcom indicated the temporary funding
