PEACE RUMORS

Pre-inaugural

cease-fire

denied

On to Washington
If you want to join the counter-inaugural forces in Washing-
ton this weekend, you have today to decide. At 9 p.m. tonight,
th~e local counter-inaugural people will have to decide how many
buses they need, so if you want to go, buy your ticket now, in
the Fishbowl, the counter-inaugural office (Rm. 3M, Union) or
your dorm. Tickets are $25, but transportation coordinator
Chuck Meibeyer says the committee has limited funds (extreme-
ly limited) to maybe help out, if you have some but not all of
the ticket money. The buses are leaving from South U between
East U and State, Friday night at 8 p.m. If you have questions,
the counter-inaugural office number is 763-4797.
A clarification,
Yesterday, The Daily reported that Vice-president for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan Smith told a Senate Assembly audience that
Gov. William Milliken's recommended allotment of state funds
to the University would not allow for any faculty salary increases
in the coming year. However, Smith's comments actually were to
the effect that there were indications the governor was not con-
sidering salary increases equal to the 5.5 per cent national
guidelines.
Housing caveat
Housing Director John Feldkamp advises us that the secur-
ity deposit provisions of the new tenant protection act do not take
effect until April 1, 1973, and are only applicable to security de-
posits held by tenants with leases entered into, renewed, or re-
negotiated after that time. Thus, if you renew your dorm
room for next year now, you're not protected under the new law.
If you need information, consult the Housing office, where copies
of the new law are available. Alex Hawkins, director of off-
campus housing can be reached at 763-4104 and Norma Kraker,
housing advisor, at 764-7400. If you prefer to consult in person,
go to 1011 SAB.
Our man in Hanoi
University Prof. John Whitmore, a specialist in 14th and 15th
century Vietnam and a member of the Vietnam Studies Co-or-
dinating group, is on his way to Hanoi. The first U. S. academic
specialist on Vietnam to enter North Vietnam since the war
began, Whitmore will be in Hanoi for a week as a guest of the
Ministry of Education of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
Whitmore hopes that his visit will make possible future "contacts
and exchanges of scholars, students and materials."

r The Cabinet
The Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday over-
whelmingly approved the nomination of Elliot Richardson for
secretary of defense. Richardson currently holds the job of sec-
retary of health, education and welfare in the Nixon cabinet.
Meanwhile, a leading Senate war critic announced his inten-
tions to stall full Senate confirmation until after the President's
inauguration Saturday. As a symbolic protest against the Indo-
china war Sen. Harold Hughs (D-Iowa) will block a full Senate
vote on the Richardson nomination and those of William Clem-
ents for deputy secretary of defense and James Schlesinger for
director of the CIA. In other action yesterday President Nixon
accepted with "deep regret" the resignation of Undersecretary
of the Treasury Edwin Cohen, acknowledged to be the adminis-
tration's top expert on tax reform. Treasury officials denied
speculation that Cohen's departure is related to the adminis-
tration's failure to move on tax reform.
Society note
Actress Jane Fonda got a "quickie" divorce yesterday from
Roger Vadim, a French movie director she married in 1965, ac-
cording to a Dominican Republic court source. Yesterday's court
action leaves Jane free to marry former Daily Editor and fel-
low anti-war activist Tom Hayden. Fonda arrived Monday in
Santo Domingo where divorces can be obtained in a matter of
hours.

BUSING ORDER DELAYED:
Appeals court to rehear case
on Detroit school segregation

Presidential Press Secretary
Ronald Ziegler told reporters
"the President is not going to
address the nation" on the
subject of Vietnam this week.
Dampening reports from Saigon
and elsewhere that signing of a
ceasefire was imminent, Ziegler
also said Henry Kissinger, his
chief. Vietnam negotiator, would
not be returning to Paris this week
to resume talks with Hanoi's Le
Duc Tho.
Ziegler's denials came in re-
sponse to a report by the Cohim-
bia Broadcasting System (CBS)
which quoted "highly reliable pa-
lace sources in Saigon" as saying
a cease-fire announcement would
be made Friday night.
Such an announcement observ-
ers agreed would not be out of
character for the President who
has shown a flair for the dramatic
in the timing of past peace devel-
opments.
One senior U. S. official said it
was possible the rumors were de-f
liberately leaked by Saigon be-
cause of its objections to some
conditions it feels Nixon is impos-
ing on Thieu.
Ziegler left open the possibility
that Nixon would have. something
to say about Vietnam in his tele-
vised inaugural address, however.
He also insisted that his state-
ment that Kissinger would not go
to Paris this week did not con-
flict with his statement Monday
that the presidential adviser would
makefthe trip "in the relatively
near future."
While hopes for an immediate
peace were somewhat diminished
by Ziegler comments, reports from
several sourcesindicated that the
negotiations had made some pro-
gress.
That progress was said to have
been responsible for the Presi-
dent's decision Monday to suspend
offensive activities over North
Vietnam.
According to officialtsources, the
new draft agreement is largely
based on the nine-point accord
reached between Kissinger and
Tho Oct. 20. But the final docu-
ment, including a series of com-
promises, annexes and additional
clauses, will be bulkier than the
original draft accord, they said.
United States and North Vietna-
mese officials declined to comment
on reports that the new draft
agreement contained nine main
chapters plus 25 articles and 13
protocols.
Several of the issues which were
said to be holdingrup the talks,
particularly the problem of sup-
ervision of any cease-fire, have
I reportedly been worked out.

By AP and UPI
CINCINNATI, Ohio - A fed-
eral appeals court yesterday or-
dered a rehearing of arguments
on a controversial plan designed
to desegregate city schools in
Detroit and 52 suburban districts.
The 6th U. S. Circuit Court of
Appeals turned aside an earlier
order in which it agreed with
U. S. District Court findings of
segregation in the districts. It
said it would hear oral argu-
ments Feb. 8 on a massive bus-
ing plan.
The appeals court had ruled
Dec. 8 that U.S. District Court
Judge Stephen Roth of Detroit
was correct in his findings of
segregation. It also agreed with
Roth that cross-district busing
was the only effective desegrega-
tion remedy for the city's
schools, which are 70 per cent
black.
But the appeals court said
Roth erred in not bringing all 52
suburban districts into hearings
during which the busing plan
was argued.
That December order, handed
down byeCircuit Court judges
Harry Phillips, John Peck and.
George Edwards, was followed
by appeals by a number of the
suburban districts, and the state
of Michigan, for a rehearing be-
fore all nine judges of the 6th
Circuit.
Roth was ordered to re-
open those hearings, but since his
poor physical condition has pre-
vented him from doing so, the
appellate division has taken over

Ziegler

that responsibility.
The rehearing order met mix-
ed reaction in Michigan.
William Penn, executive direc-
tor of the Detroit branch of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People,
called the action, "another de-
lay in an orderto achieve inte-
gration in the schools."
Michigan Atty. Gen. Frank
Kelley, an opponent of busing,
termed the order "a victory in
this long legal struggle for the
state."
Roth's plan would mean the

busing of 40,000 pupils across dis-
trict lines.
Kelley said the action by the
appellate court and Monday's de-
cision by the Supreme Court to
hear the Richmond, Va., school
case reinforces his "firm legal
judgment that upon final re-
view of this case there will be
no cross-districtsbusing in Mich-
igan."
Despite Kelley's remarks, the
move looked to some observers
like a temporary delay which
would have no substantive effect
on Roth's order.

The appellate court decision
resurrected the possibility that
the state of Michigan could be
forced to purchase 295 buses to
implement the desegregation
plan.
The order which was set aside
by the appeals court yesterday
had vacated Roth's order that
the busesbe purchased. Thetap-
peals court now must decide
again whether to uphold that
purchase order.
The new order also revived the
possibility that the appeals court

Profs to hold
[inauguration
peace dinner
History Prof. John Bowditch and
11 other history staff members
have announced their intention to
hold an inaugural dinner for peace
Saturday evening, Jan. 20, after
the counter-inaugural protest in
Washington, D.C.
Bowditch's group, the Commit-
tee of Historians for Peace (CHP),
is urging all protesters to attend
the dinner. speakers will include
prominent historians and public
figures.
Historians from the University
and a number of other schools
across the country, including Am-
herst, Stanford, Princeton, and
Harvard, will be selling $10 tickets
to the dinner, which is to be held
at the ballroom of Washington's
Mayflower Hotel.
Bowditchsaid yesterday the din-
ner will be an alternative to the
festivities Administration support-
ers will hold after President Nix-
on's. inauguration ceremony. "It is
not a time to celebrate 'victory,'
but to re-evaluate our place in a
world that needs constructive lead-
ership," he remarked.
"There is something unseemly
about this country celebrating with
liquor and dancing when we have
been using our industrial power
and our military might to pulver-
ize a small country with massive
and indiscriminate bombing in the
name of peace. Instead of cele-
brating we should be in mourning
for those who have died and are
dying for a cause no one now un-
derstands or believes in."
Advertisements have been placed
in several major national news-
papers urging protesters to join
the CHP dinner.
Bowditch said the committee ex-
pects 500 to 1000 people to attend.
Supporting Bowditch's efforts at
the University are history depart-
ment staff members Charles Gib-
son, John Fine, Richard Mitchell,
Richard Latner, Bruce McGowan,
Raymond Grew, Robin Jacoby,
Phylis Ehrenberg, Bradford Perk-
ins, Carolyn Lougee, and Ernest
Young.

PESC panel debates role of
Suniversity in today's society

By DEBBIE PASTORIA
What role, if any, does the University play
within the American society? What functions does
it serve? Can the University exist as a neutral
body?
These were the major questions raised last
night in the first of a series of three "State of
The University" debates being held this week,

Because there are such a wide variety of
people attending the University, Smith argued,
there is no conceivable way any united policy
decision can be reached.
This position was sharply challenged in the
audience participation session by a young woman
who said, "You talk about your magnificent neu-
trality! Can you honestly admit that President
