Energy crises over?
It now looks as though the Great Energy Crisis of 1973 is over
-at least as far as the University is concerned. According to
Jack Weidenbach, University director of physical properties and
plant extension, Michigan Consolidated Gas Company will resume
gas delivery around Feb. 25 "unless something unforeseen
happens." The University has been operating solely on reserves
since delivery was cutoff Jan. 14

Ontario. News of the accident, which happened last Thursday,
was withheld until yesterday so that next of kin could be notified.
Mini-courses approved
Eight of the University's one credit, pass/fail mini-courses
have been approved for offering this winter. Classes are offered

The POWs never come back the same. Richard Springman,
who recently returned from a Viet Cong prison camp wearing
beads and a peace symbol has been dubbed by the Army as
displaying "classic prisoner of war withdrawal symptoms."
Springman was taken to Letterman Hospital in Cottonwood, Ariz.
for treatment of ,'periods of disorientation, mood changes and
withdrawal." But all is not lost. According to an Army spokesman,
Springman has shown "marked improvement in the past 48
Hold the mushrooms!
The Food and Drug Administration yesterday announced the
nation's first pizza recall. The offending pizzas, frozen pies made
by the Fabbrini Family Foods of Ossineke, Mich., may contain
mushrooms contaminated with deadly botulism toxin. The com-

Co. of East Plaestine, Ohio.
British preppies
British preppies at crusty Eton College are in revolt. It
seems their profs, absent-minded old men, forget to dismiss
classes on time. The student's battle plan to keep the profs on
their toes includes shuffling their feet, refusing to answer ques-
tions, and if all else fails turning over chairs. Sounds like they're
just picking up on some of our old tricks.

China talks end
Reuters Staff Writer
PEKING-Chinese Prime Minister Chou En-Lai yester-
day described his talks here with President Nixon's spe-
cial envoy, Henry Kissinger as "very good."
The Premier made the comment less than 12 hours
after Kissinger's departure for Tokyo following a four-
day visit to Peking.
Chou and other Chinese leaders looked buoyant and con-
fident as they attended a banquet last night at the Great
Hall of the People for Begum Bhutto, wife of Pakistani
President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who is on a visit here.
Asked by a correspondent how the talks with Kissinger
had gone, Chou said "very good."
Although Chou and the Chinese leadership have re-
mained tight-lipped about the talks, diplomats here are
confident that they will lead to some form of American
diplomatic representation in Peking this year.
Kissinger's nearly 20 hours of talks here were crowned
with a two-hour meeting with Chairman Mao Tse-Tung.
Western diplomats here said they believed that the meet-
ing with Chairman Mao must herald a new era in rela-
tions between China and the United States.
Diplomats here said the breakthrough in relations soon
might involve a U.S. commitment to reduce troops in

Reports to Tokyo
Associated Press Writer
TOKYO - Henry Kissinger filled in Japan's leaders
yesterday on his talks in Hanoi and Peking, dined at a
geisha house and headed for hometo report.
The talks between President Nixon's foreign affairs
advisor and Japanese leaders reportedly centered on Kis-
singer's Saturday meeting with Chairman Mao- Tse-
Nothing was made public on the subject but Herb Klein,
White House director of communication, indicated an an-
nouncement would be made on Kissinger's arrival in
Washington at 3:30 today.
Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ohira, who joined Prime
Minister Kakuei Tanaka for an hour and 40 minutes of
talks with Kissinger, said the Japanese received the gist
of the talks with Mao. But Ohira said he had been asked
not to make any disclosure.
Ohira told newsmen that the talks covered a wide spec-
trum of subjects, including Vietnam reconstruction, the
international monetary situation and China's relations with
the United States and Japan.
Sources close to the American delegation said there
had been an important advance against speculation that
it involved anything so major as the establishment of

'Viet war rage s
d espite appealis
By The AP and Reuters
SAIGON - South Vietnamese troops and communist forces yester-
day stepped up their battle for control of disputed territory, despite
appeals from international ceasefire supervisors for a halt to the
Ambassador Michael Gauvin of Canada, chairman of the Interna-
tional Commission of Control and Supervision, said the cease-fire
failure as well as the delay of the central Joint Military Commission in
becoming fully operative, has presented the ICCS with "serious prob-
lems in meeting its obligations."
The Saigon command claimed that cease-fire violations have soared
past the 4,000 mark and alleged these total Vietnamese casualties
since the cease-fire officially went into effect on Jan. 28:
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong - 7,186 killed, 195 captured;
South Vietnamese military - 1,259 killed, 5,837 wounded, 922 miss-
Civilian - 103 killed, 373 wounded, 497 abducted.
Gauvin said the commission will begin deploying cease-fire teams
to 14 of 26 sites tomorrow. The deployment is expected to be com-
pleted before the Feb. 26 deadline stipulated in the Paris agreement.
Maj Gen. Duncan McAlpine, Canadian chairman of the com-
mission's military committee, said safety was the paramount con-
sideration in selecting only 14 sites at present.
"It goes without saying that we would not want to go to places
like Quang Tri and Gio Linh," said McAlpine. "These places are still
very much in a state of contestation. Obviously, also we've got to be
very careful about how we approach the western delta."
Quang Tri and Gio Linh are just below the demilitarized zone, an
area of South Vietnam where the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong have
held considerable territory since they occupied most of the province
in an offensive last spring.
Gauvin reported that the International Commission of Control and
Supervision also decided to send a team into the field today to investi-
gate, at the request of the United States, the shooting down of an un-
arned American helicopter on a peacekeeping mission last Friday
near An Loc, 60 miles north of Saigon. Five crewmen were wounded,
one critically, and the United States blamed the Viet Cong.
The commission is made up of representatives of Poland, Hun-
gary, Indonesia and Canada. A temporary Joint Military Commission,
designed to support the peacekeeping body in policing the cease-fire,
is composed of delegations from the United States, North and South
Vietnam and the Viet Cong. It is supposed to operate on the basis of
inanimity but has been slowed by bickering.
The peace agreement provides for 825 personnel on each delegation
of the Joint Military Commission. The United States and North andj

No upsets in
small turnout
In the closest race of an otherwise uneventful,
low-turnout primary election yesterday, Frank
Shoichet was selected by Second Ward voters to
run as the Human Rights Party candidate for
City Council in the April 2 general elections.
Shoichet turned back a serious challenge from
R nbow Peoples Party member David Sinclair,
who had mounted an extensive campaign.
Shoichet received 436 votes to Sinclair's 344, while
candidates Lisa North and Alexander Stephenson
received 128 and 21 votes respectively.
"I think we won through dogged persistency,"
said Shoichet last night. "We just kept doing
what we set out to do, talking with a lot of
people on a one to one basis."
Sinclair had no comment on his defeat, though
he congratulated Shoichet at the winner's victory

Bea Kaimowitz won the HRP mayoral primary
with 1173 votes defeating Ann Bobroff, 471,
Richard Steinhart, 209, and David Allen with 92.
Kaimowitz had been favored by most observers.
Democratic mayoral hopeful Franz Mogdis
easily beat opponents Robert Elton and John
Feiner while Republican James Stephenson
swamped Louis Ernst, 4,862 to 419.
There were two other city council primary
races decided yesterday. In the third ward, Re-
publican party favorite Robert Henry defeated
challenger Roger Bertoia 1,254 to 664, while
Democrats in the Fourth Ward chose Ethel Lewis
over Carl Hollie, 706 to 194. Lewis had been
expected to win in that ward.
The low turnout probably helped Shoichet, who
ran a well organized campaign.
Sinclair, the brother of John Sin-
clair, probably had greater name
identification with voters, and con-
ducted a high powered campaign.
But results indicate that the masses
