Book burning blasted
President Robben Fleming yesterday termed the Advocates
for Medical Information's Wednesday book burning "totally re-
pugnant." In a harshly worded statement Fleming said "No uni-
versity worthy of the name can remain indifferent to any group
of people, however well-intentioned, who think that the solution
to their problem is to destroy literature with which they dis-
agree." Fleming had not commented on the burning before yes-
terday.
Drivers warned
The work of two members of the Delta Tan Delta fraternity
who literally took the law in their own hands yesteday prob-
ably saved several motorists from the hassle of getting a speed-
ing ticket. It all started when Mark Seegel, '74 was nabbed by
radar-toting cops at the corner of Geddes and Hill yesterday
afternoon. Determined that other unwary motorists should es-
cape his fate, Seegel enlisted the aid of frat brother Jim Nissley
in constructing a large warning sign in front of the Delta Tau
Delta house just up the block, The sign, which read: "Danger!
Speed trap ahead," served to slow down motorists for the rest
of the day and no more tickets were issued. The police report-
edly got bored and split.
OEO relieved
The Washtenaw County branch of the Office of Economic
Opportunity yesterday released a statement saying a District
Court ruling halting President Nixon's proposed dismantling of
the agency had "boosted the morale" of the local office. "This
favorable decision by the Federal Court will, we hope, mean
that the activities of OEO will not be further disrupted," Admin-
istrative Assistant Stephen Schlesinger said. He said Nixon's
plans, had they not been blocked, would have resulted in the loss
of $109,000 in administrative and neighborhood center funding.
Tax help
If, like most of us, you are still sweating out your tax re-
turn, help is in sight. Three local agencies-Model Cities, the
Ann Arbor Public Library and Project Community - have an-
nounced plans to set up special emergency free tax counseling.
The first session opens at the public library on William today.

Dope note
CINCINNATI - Twenty-one youths were arrested Wednes-
day when a policeman noticed marijuana smoke "hanging over
the neighborhood like a cloud" and followed his nose to a house
where a party was in progress. "They were smoking it freely
throughout the house," said Patrolman Paul Harmes, who took
part in the raid. "There was marijuana fudge in the oven. They
were boiling marijuana on the stove in tea bags and they had
some burning in the fireplace. "It was going up the chimney and
we could smell it all over the neighborhood," Harmes said. Won-
der if they got off?
Sex and the governor
HARRISBURG-Pennsylvania Governor Milton Shapp struck
another blow for body liberation Wednesday when he suggested
that all state lawmakers who vote to outlaw premarital sex be
given a lie detector test. Shapp, not originally known for liberal-
ism on lifestyle issues, got his name in the underground papers
a few months ago when he banned pay toilets on all Pennsylvania
state highways. According to sources in Philadelphia, Shapp's
loome town, the governor flew into a rage one night halfway be-
tween Harrisburg and the city of brotherly love when he pulled
into a Howard Johnson rest stop and couldn't find a dime.

House leaves three
old progyrams intact

anWASHINGTON (id) -The House,
in a rebuff to President Nixon,j
voted yesterday to continue three!
existing student aid programs for;
another year instead of switching7
to a new, administration-backed'
plan.
It approved by unanimous voice
vote an appropriation of $872 mil-
lion to carry on the programs at
their present funding levels.
Nixon had requested the same
sum but wanted the money taken
away from two ofuthe, programs so
that $662 million could be put into
one enacted last year that is de-
signed to assure all students the
financial aid they need to attend
college.
The House acted under an emer-
gency procedure in order to end
confusion among students and col-
lege officials over what federal aid
will be available for the school
year beginning in September. Sen-
ate action is still required.
Members of the House Appropria-
tions Committee, who offered the
amendment to fund the existing
programs, said the new program is

Rep. Daniel J. Flood (D-Pa.),
who offered the amendment to fund
the old programs, said students
and college financial aid officers
needed the flexibility and addi-
tional resources of the present pro-
grams in order to make the new
one effective.
HUD said the appropriations
committee would fund the new pro-
gram at a higher level in the 1974
budget, b u t another committee
member, Rep. Neal Smith (D-Iowa)
said if the administration tries it
out with the $122 million it is get-
ting this year, "I think they're go-
ing to fall on their faces."

Nixon

warned

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Influential senators, including a
powerful supporter of past Nixon Administration foreign policies,
yesterday warned the White House against renewed American
military involvement in Indochina.
American bombing in Cambodia, and reports that South
Vietnamese troops backed by American air support may be used
to bolster the shaky Cambodian government, touched off ex-
pressions of alarm in the Senate and at a Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee hearing.
Senate Democratic leaderM Mike Mansfield of Montana told
the Senate he was worried about talk of using South Vietnamese
and 'hai troops to help support what he called the tenuous posi-
tion of the Lon Nol government in Cambodia.
"This would be a most dangerous procedure and could have

on Cambodi a
the possible effect of once again involving this country in a quag-
mire because the support - logistical and otherwise - would
come from the United States," Mansfield said.
He told the Senate the Cambodian government had almost
ceased to function despite hundreds of millions of dollars of
American aid.
"There seems to be little or no hope for this government to
stand with or without reinforced outside assistance," said Mans-
field, a long-time Asian specialist and friend of ousted Cambo-
dian Prince Sihanouk.
Senate Republican leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania - the
President's chief lieutenant in the Senate - joined in expressions
of concern about the American bombing.
"It is deplorable that the military support by air has to

LARGEST TRANSACTION EVER:
U.S. petroleum firm, Soviets
conclude massive trade deal

MOSCOW ( Reuter) - The Soviet
Union yesterday signed a gigantic
$8 billion deal with Occidental Pe-
troleum Corp. of Los Angeles which
was -thought here to rank as the
b i g g e s t commercial deal ever
transacted.
The agreement was signed be-
tween representatives of Soviet
foreign trade and chemical minis-
tries and Occidental, whose presi-
dent is Armand Hammer-a friend
of Lenin in the 1920s.
Although the cost yesterday is
set at $8 billion the contract covers

a 20-year period and in the opinion;
of. specialists the overall price of
the "agreement, when inflationary
elements are accounted for, is like-
ly to grow much higher over the
next two decades.
The Occidental-Soviet deal dwarfs
all other commercial statistics.
Overall U.S.-Soviet trade last year
for example topped $640 million.
Tass, the Soviet news agency,
last night said the Occidental con-I
tract covered deliveries of Ameri-
can phosphates to the Soviet Union
in return for Soviet chemical pro-

The agreement also provides for
the construction near Kuibyshev,

BULLETIN
City police clamped a tight security veil last
night on a series, of mysterious incidents that in-
cluded an extortion attempt, a bomb scare at the
University Towers apartment building on South
University Ave., and an abortive high speed police
chase of a suspect vehicle on a highway leading out
of town.
"I'm not releasing anything tonight," said Major
Raymond Woodroof of the city police. "There's still
an element of danger to someone so I'm not re-
leasing anything."
However, The Daily learned from other police
agencies that city police were investigating an ex-
tortion attempt. And one officer said that the at-
tempt was connected to the two hour evacuation of
University Towers following a bomb scare at 7:55
p.m. last night.
Daily reporters at Flint learned that a chase up
US 23 by several unmarked city police cars ended
with the escape of a suspect vehicle.
The car, a green Ford Mustang, 1973 registra-
tion number LZR 276, was first chased by police as
it headed out of town at high speed on Main Street.
The car apparently eluded police roadblocks on
the highway.
Part of the mystery surrounding last night's
events centers around a person or item codenamed
"Turkey" by the police.
It was thought that "Turkey" refered to a sum of
money that was supposed to be paid to a possible
extortionist.
According to police sources, the transfer of
"Turkey" to a vehicle was abortive.
Another theory held that "Turkey" was a person,
and this might be the reason that police here are
fearful for somebody's safety.
At University Towers, 600 students shivered in

International Chess Master Milan
Vukcevic gave a 50-board simul-
taneous exhibition in West Quad
last night.
Vukcevic played exciting, theo-
retical openings in nearly all of his
games. Nonetheless, some of his
opponents gave him formidable op-
position. By 11 p.m. he had won a
handful of games and was doing
well in the remaining board con-
flicts.
Before the,exhibition began, Vuk-
cevic, a native-born Yugoslavian,
asked only that players refrain
from passing too often when he
came to their 'board in order to
get more time to determine their
moves.
