Last week City Council members rejected a motion by its
Human Rights Party members to hold an official public hearing
on the tactics of the police department. So, HRP councilmem-

their own hearing, scheduled for the 4th floor conference room
at City Hall, Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 7:30. Ann Arborites with a

Dope notes
Customs agents flushed 20 pounds of pure heroin down a
Houston toilet Tuesday, and still had over 100 pounds to go. The
smack came to the United States from France via Mexico about
10 years ago. The Houston agents have just gotten around to
destroying the evidence - with a street value estimated at up
to $9 million.
Orangebug revisited
Today marks the fifth anniversary of one of the most sordid
and ignored violent incidents of the recent past - the "Orange-
burg Massacre" in which three black students from S o u t h
Carolina State College were killed by state Highway Patrolmen.
The incident began as a dispute over the use of a segregated
bowling alley, and blossomed into a full-scale confrontation in
which 27 students - all black - were shot. The incident,
ignored by the national media, left behind a simple monument to
three youths and a deep scar; neither will soon be forgottei
by the people of Orangeburg, S.C.
Walk softly*...
WASHINGTON - President Nixon pledged yesterday to wield
"a very big stick" if necessary in Phase 3 of his "fight against
higher prices and higher taxes." In comments after the swearing
in of John Dunlop as new director of the Cost of Living Council,
Nixon predicted success for his largely voluntary Phase 3 econ-
omic program., But he told Dunlop, motioning toward a door in
his oval office: "There's a stick in that closet-a very big stick,
I will never hesitate to use in our fight against higher prices and
higher taxes."
DearM adam:
WASHINGTON - In a letter approximately opening "Dear
Madam," the Internal Revenue Service is seeking 93,544 dollars
in back taxes and penalties from Xaviera Hollander, the now-
deported New York prostitute and madam - and author of "The
Happy Hooker." "It is determined that you realized gross re-
ceipts of 120,577 dollars from your profession as a madam in
the operation of a house of prostitution," the IRS said in its
letter, without specifying how it had figured the wages of sin
for the year 1970. The lettet', along with a statement from Hol-
lander's lawyers denying the claim, was filed yesterday in
U.S. Tax Court here. Her denial says she did not become a
madam until December, 1970, and it was therefore "physically
impossible for her to have had cash receipts for the year 1970
in excess of 120,000 dollars.

The weather picture
Today is a bonus day for all you cold weather freaks.
Not only will the high be 26, but the low will dip to 15. In
addition, there will be snow flurries all morning leaving
the sky overcast all day. It will be a good day to sleep in
late.

"Budgetary cutssand program reductions are
always painful," says Secretary of Agriculture
Earl Butz. "The alternatives are more painful."
It was with this logic that last week President
Nixon proposed his slashing cuts on social pro-
grams developed by Democratic administrations
since the thirties.
According to the Nixon plan, the Office of
Economic Opportunity - a keystone of Lyndon
Johnson's 'Great Society' - would be eliminated.
Emergency employment assistance would be
cut by more than half; and the Kennedy Ad-
ministration's Depressed Areas Program would
also receive the axe.
The Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment would approve no new projects for
Model Cities, urban renewal, neighborhood fa-
cilities, and a host of other areas.
Federal aid in areas as diverse as rural elec-
trification, school milk, hospital construction and

"This Congress," the President says, "has not
been responsible on money." In his annual eco-
nomic report to Congress last week, Nixon un-
derlined his belief that, "Only by holding the
line on federal spending will we be able to reduce
the inflation rate further in 1973."
The Executive vs. Legislative debate centers
on two issues. The first is simply the bimdget it-
self, which has been attacked for its cuts in so-
cial welfare spending.
Senator Walter Mondale (D-Minn.), for in-
stance, said, "If the President has his way, this
nation will have effectively repealed all the ma-
jor social reform legislation of the last 20 years."
The proposed budget, which would go into
effect July 1, shows a decrease, for the first
time, in federal "human investment" spending
for the nation's poor people.
The second issue in the controversy is that of

Presidential impoundment of funds already al-
located by Congress. In this year's budget, Nixon
has refused to allow spending of nearly $15 bil-
lion already allocated by Congress.
Rep. George Mahon (D-Tex.), Chairman of the
House Appropriations Committee, Tuesday ac-
cused the President of usurping "authority which
no president has or ever has had."
John Ehrlichman, Nixon's top economic ad-
visor, claimed Monday that "Whenever it's pos-
sible for the executive to save money, it's in-
cumbent upon him to do so."
But Ehrlichman's statements to the contrary,
there is an acid fight brewing in Congress over
the impoundment question.
Deputy Attorney General Joseph Sneed told a
Congressional committee Tuesday that the Presi-
dent's authority allowed him to abolish pro-
grams by withholding their total appropriations.
This contention was hotly disputed by several
senators present, including Sens. Edmund Mus-
kie (D-Me.), who said Sneed's testimony was

Congress
"very much like the tone of a speech made by
the President of the Philippines as a justifica-
tion for eliminating the National Assembly."
As long as the impoundment issue remains
unsettled - which could be until it is resolved in
the courts - Congress faces a double whammy on
its appropriations measures. Even if Congress
overrode a Presidential veto, for instance, in
continuing the present Medicare program, it
might face an executive impoundment of funds.
The result may be a governmental deadlock.
The Nixon budget policy, if implemented, rep-
resents a significant change in the relation of
the Federal government to the economy as a
whole; and to social welfare programs in par-
ticular.
"This country, has enough on its plate in the
way of huge new spending programs, social pro-
grams ,throwing dollars at problems," the Pres-
ident said shortly before his re-election.
"The increasingly evident fact," adds Defense
Secretary Elliot Richardson, "is that neither the

Democrats on the County
Board of, Commissioners last
night revealed an extensive
"blueprint for change," focus-
ing on the need for a "new:

for Washtenaw County.
In a State of the County mes-
sage delivered to a board meeting
by chairman William Winters (D-
Ypsilanti), the Democrats outlined
their priorities for the next two
years but specified few details on
how their plans would be imple-
mented, and in a few cases, dida
not specify exactly what programs
they would implement.
The address drew attention to
plans for: .
An affirmative action program
to deal with the problem of job

BULLETIN
Negotiating teams from the
Ann Arbor School System and
striking secretaries of Team-
sters Local 214 reached an
agreement late last night after
a marathon negotiating session.
According to David Trost,
d ep ut y superintendent o f
schools, the two sides settled on
a 5.49 per cent wage hike. The
union had been seeking a 5.5
per cent hike plus increments.
If the agreement is ratified by
the School Board and the union,
as expected, it will put an end
to a week-old strike which has
crippled secretarial, janitorial
and bus services in the schools.
Col. William MacLeod, Canadian
chief of the four-nation regional
truce team headquartered at Hue,
said he had no plans to take to
the field until the parallel military
team of the Joint Military Commis-
sion (JMC) is in place and at
work.
The Joint Military Commission
and the International Commission
of Control and Supervision (ICCS)
are the two bodies charged with
supervising the 11-day-old cease-
fire.
Seven ICCS regional teams moved
into their headquarters throughout
the country Monday, but the first
field outing by anICCS team was
turned back Tuesday when artillery
fire prevented the men from enter-
ing Quang Tri City.
The Saigon command reported
121 truce violations by the Com-
munists in the 24 hours ending at
dawn yesterday.
Some of the incidents were major
battles. In the Central Highlands,
for example, the Saigon command
said 247 Communist soldiers were
killed Tuesday at a cost of seven
South Vietnamese killed and 42

WASHINGTON - Foreign Affairs
Adviser Henry Kissinger flew from
Washington yesterday on a peace
mission to North Vietnam and
China after conferring with Presi-
dent Nixon about the prospects
of an Indochina-wide ceasefire and
an en-during settlement in South-
east Asia.
He left Andrews Air Force Base
outside Washington for Bangkok,
Thailand, at the start of a 13-day
journey in which he will seek the
extension of the Vietnam cease-
fire to Laos and Cambodia, a
friendly dialogue with North Viet-
nam and improved relations with
China.
Nixon gave him last-minute in-
structions at a White House meet-
ings just before he left-the third
conference they had held in less
than 24 hours.
Shortly After Kissinger headed
for Bangkok, White House press
secretary Ronald L. Ziegler re-
affirmed that the presidential ad-
viser will stop over in Vientiane
tomorrow to discuss prospects for
a ceasefire in Laos.
Prime Minister Souvanna Phou-
ma, with whom Kissinger is to
dine tomorrow night, is optimistic
about reaching a ceasefire agree-
ment with the Communist Pathet
Lao in about a week.
