Ackley on the budget
Gardner Ackley, economics professor and former chairman
of the Council of Economic Advisors, yesterday issued a state-
ment on President Nixon's budget message. While conceding that
the new budget contains some meritorious recommendations,
Ackley criticized the shelving of Lyndon Johnson's Great So-

he called an unwillingness on the President's part to close tax
loopholes.
Local strike continues
Some 185 secretaries in Ann Arbor's public schools continued
their strike yesterday, accusing the Board of Education of "bad-
bargaining." The employees, members of Teamsters Local 124,
walked off the job Tuesday after charging that the school board
was unwilling to go along with recommendations of a -state-
appointed fact-finder concerning wages and benefits. Picket
lines were set up yesterday at' three high schools, and no end
to the strike is immediately seen.

for 13 meals-per-week, regardless of how many

not transferable for use outside dorm cafeterias.
Further, the University is one of only three Big
Ten schools which do not provide linen service.
The housing office dropped linen service last
year claiming it was, too expensive.
Some further cuts in dorm service recommended
by the housing office but temporarily rejected
would heighten the unfavorable comparison.
It has been suggested that the number of meals-
per-week be reduced from 13 to 10, and that the
dorm security system be eliminated.

Asked to justify the University's high rates and
low level of service, Housing Director John Feld-
kamp cited de-centralized facilities and high food
costs as contributing factors.
He said University housing is composed of "small
units, not programmed for economy but rather
designed according to the Michigan House Plan"
which attempts to promote small group living.
Also, Feldkamp claimed University dorms serve
"more expensive entrees" with meals than other
Big Ten schools.
As a result, he says, the University pays more
money to feed far fewer students than our sister
school at Michigan State.
How do University students react to the high cost
and low service level of dorm living?
One answer is that many do not return to Uni-
versity housing, switching to apartment living

Prhesident
ed s to
hold funds,
WASHINGTON (1) - Presi-
dent Nixon declared yesterday
that he intends to continue to
impound funds appropriated
by Congress if such spending
would necessitate h i g h e r
taxes.
Nixon spoke at a news confer-
ence, where he was asked to re-
spond to critics who say that his
impoundment of funds abrogates
power or authority that the con-
stitution gave to Congress.
The constitutional right to im-
pound, or refuse to spend funds'
appropriated by Congress "is com-
pletely clear," he said.
Claiming that Congress repre-
sents special interests, Nixon said
he will represent the general in-
terest of the nation and that the
interest "whether itbebrich or
poor or old, is don't break the
family budget by raising the taxes
or raising prices."
Accordingly, the President said
"I will not spend money if the
Congress overspends, and I will not
be for programs that will raise the
taxes and put a bigger burden on
the already overburdened Ameri-
can taxpayer."
The impoundment issue drew be-
wildered Congressional reaction.
Sen. Sam Ervin Jr. (D-N.C.),
author of a bill to bar impound-
ments for more than 60 days with-
out the concurrence of Congress,!
said a cooperative effort by the
president and Congress is neces-
sary "if we are going to put the,
financial house of the federal gov-
erment in order."
On other legislative matters:
-Nixon, who did not consult
Congress on most of his major war
decisions, said Congress will have
to support any effort for peace-
time reconstruction in Indochina
as "an investment in peace."
-On executive privilege, the pro-
tection of administration officials
from testifying before Congress,'
Nixon said he did not want to
abuse the privilege and that his
general attitude "is to be as lib-
eral as possible" in making his
people available as congressional
witnesses.
"We are not going to use execu-
tive privilegeas amshield for con-
versations that might be embar-
rassing to us, but that really don't
deserve executive privilege," thel
President promised.

eign Affairs Advisor Henry
Kissinger to Hanoi next week
to discuss post war relations
with North Vietnam.
The President said that the
meeting, the first directdialogue
with North Vietnam's leaders. in
more than ten years, will pave the
way for a potentially large post-
war program for the battered na-
tion.
Kissinger, who conducted simi-
lar trail-blazing missions to China
and the Soviet Union before the
President made his own historic
visits there last year, will visit
Hanoi from Feb. 10-13.
At the same press conference,
the first since Oct. , Nixon an-
naunced that he will review the
post-war relationship between the
United States and South Vietnam
at talks with President Ngnyen
Van Thieu at the California White
House in San Clemente in the
Spring.
Commenting on the recently
signed cease-fire, the chief execu-
tive said the intricate agreement
signed Saturday in Paris can bring
peace "in Indochina for a very
long period of time."

PEKING (Reuters)-Bicycles were banned from the main

Starting Saturday, a quarter of the world's population will

Hundreds of thousands of Chinese are on the move home-
