On to Washington
The Student Government Council yesterday gave $500 to
the Counter-Inaugural Committee to help finance rides to Wash-
ington this weekend. SGC also decided to send their lawyer,
Tom Bently, along just in case of trouble. Momentum seems
to be building on campus for the demonstrations. Alice Lloyd
allocated $300 to help pay for rides, East Quad gave $200 and
Mosher-Jordan $150. Organizers hope to send about 1,000 Ann
Arborites to start off the next four years. In fact, Mayor Robert
Harris is riding on a bus to the demos.
They're back
Our hard-working Regents are in town again this week for
their two days of meetings. At 1:30 today, they will have a meet-
ing about the legal implications of holding closed meetings. The
meeting will, of course, be closed. At 3:00, they will hold an-
other meeting on the first floor of the Administration Bldg., this
one dealing with the proposed North Campus intramural build-
ing and the University's budget woes. For a change of pace,
this meeting will be open to the public.
'They're gone
The ranks of student politicos has decreased somewhat with
the resignations of Curt Steinhauer as Administrative Vice-Presi-
dent of the Student Government Council (SGC), Victor Gutman
as Director of Student Organizations and as Legal Secretary to
SGC lawyer Tom Bently. Gutman was also Elections Director
during the last election. Rumor has it that long-time student
government hanger-on and master computer programmer for
SGC elections, John Koza, has also resigned from Rackham
Student Government. Koza could not be reached last night
More housing info
Yesterday we indicated that if you sign a new lease before
April 1, 1973 you would not be protected under the new law gov-
erning security and damage deposits. But all residents and fu-
ture residents of University housing will not have io worry about
it. Housing Director John Feldkamp said yesterday that new
housing contracts written by the University will not ask for de-
posits. The high cost of complying with all the new regulations
designed to protect tenant deposits would have been too much
Feldkamp said. So the University ended damage deposits. .....

Hitting at war contractors
EAST LANSING - The City Council has again approved
guidelines which would determine the best bid in city contracting
on the basis of which bidding company has done the least
amount of contracting with the Department of Defense. The pro-
posal, which was passed late last November, was challenged
and sent back to an ad-hoc anti-war committee for clarification
of the guidelines last month. The guidelines were re-adopted 3-2
and take effect immediately. However, no bids for city con-
tracting are presently being considered, according to Assistant
City Manager Arthur Carney.
Marcos keeps control
MANILA-President Ferdinand Marcos signed into force yes-
terday a new constitution which gives him sweeping powers to
govern the Philippines indefinitely. At the same time he post-
poned indefinitely the formation of an interim parliament and
said he would continue martial law for as long as necessary.
Marcos signed a proclamation ratifying the new constitution
after citizens assemblies throughout the Philippines and com-
posed of all Filipinos over the age of 14, had overwhelmingly
voted approval of the charter.

Dunn says,
promotion
not earned
By TED STEIN
Assistant chemistry Prof.
Mark Green, who was sus-
pended from teaching Oct. 9
for showing anti-war slides to
his classes, has been denied
tenure. His appointment will
be terminated at the end of
Winter term, 1974.
In a Jan. 11 memorandum from
Thomas Dunn, acting chemistry
department chairman, Green was
no.tified that the tenure committee
reviewing his case could not "find
reasons sufficiently compelling to
make a case to the Executive
Committee of the LSA College for
your promotion and tenure."t
Green said that he has sent a
copy of the memo to his attorney,
law Prof. Rqbert Burt, and will
consult with him before deciding
whether to appeal the decision.
According to literary college
guidelines, Green may still appeal
to LSA Dean Frank Rhodes and
the LSA Executive Committee,
Dunn said.
Dunn's memo also added that
the committee felt Green had not
maintained his "initial vigorous
program" in research and had
only been "minimally satisfac-
tory" in the arenas of teaching
and service to the Department.
In disputing the tenure commit-
tee's findings, Green said that with
regard to his research, he had pub-
lished "more than the average
number of papers" in "highly - re-
spected" journals and that last
summer he had been awarded a
large, three-year research grant
by the National Institutes of.
Health.
Green added that he had copies
of student evaluations of his teach-
ing from his last two courses,
which showed "very,tverygood"
responses.
"I don't understand how they
didn't give me tenure," Green said
last night of the decision. "For
whatever reasons it happened, the
reasons in the letter don't per-
tain."
While a chemistry professor who
has read the report said yesterday
the anti-war slide show was not
explicitly mentioned, Green said,
"I'm sure it (the show) didn't do
me any good."
Dunn said that he would not
comment specifically on the rea-
sons for denying Green tenure, be-
cause he said it might hamper
his ability to find a job elsewhere.
Chemistry Prof. Richard Law-
ton, the only identified member of
Green's tenure committee, said
that, "I don't feel its appropriate
for me to comment. What's in the
report will never be discussed."'
Lawton was referring to the fact
that the report is confidential, ex-
cept to other members of the
chemistry faculty.
Green said last night that he had
been tipped off as to the commit-
tee's decision last month when he
had received his teaching assign-

ment through May, 1974. v

next year and a half is considered

of wnat tni aecison mign ve
A government organ, the Tin Son
newspaper, yesterday quoted a
leading progovernment senator as
saying that important demands by1
South Vietnam still had to bea
dealt with before a peace settle-
ment is reached.
Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam
said in a radio interview that al-
though "peace is very near" the
Saigon government refuses to sign
any Vietnam peace agreement that
mentions the Viet Cong's provi-
sional revolutionary government.
Lam said U.S. and North Viet-
namese experts continuing nego-
tiations in Paris have virtually
completed work on military mat-
ters, including the proposed ex-
change of prisoners, an in-place,
cease-fire and international control
machinery.
The White House continued its
no-comment policy.
Lam was interviewed in Saigon
on Tuesday by French correspon-
dent Claude Bonjean. Extracts of
the interview were broadcast by
the privately owned Radio Luxem-
bourg.
Thieu's official Saigon radio
hinted that a cease-fire was near,
declaring, "No wars go without
an ending day, and the war of
Vietnam cannot evade this law.
Sooner or later an agreement will
be signed to end the war .ui."
I But it accused the communist
side of planning to resume the war
after a cease-fire "when conditions
permit, after the total withdrawal:
of U.S. forces."

200 members of Congress to
boycott President's inauguration

By SUE STEPHENSON
and wire Service. Reports
Over 200 members of the House
of Representatives are expected
to boycott President Nixon's in-
auguration to protest his Viet-
nam and domestic policies, Con-
gressman Don Edwards (D-
Calif.) said yesterday.
When asked if any of the mem-
bers of Congress would be ac-
tively protesting, Edwards re-
plied, "Oh yes! Quite a number
will be marching and protesting
on Saturday and Sunday."
Edwards, who has served in
Congress for 10 years, said,
"There is a new feeling of frus-
tration and anger in Congress."
If the "conservative guess"
turns out to be accurate, it
would mean that nearly half of
the 432 current members ofthe
House will be staying away from
the ceremonies Saturday after-
noon on the steps of the Capitol
Building.
Also, 17 Republicans-includ-
ing some who have previously
supported the administration's
war policies-sent Nixon a letter
declaring "We implore you to

forego any resumption of large
scale bombing" if the current
negotiations break down.
Meanwhile, two more antiwar
events have been scheduled.
The first event consists of a
march, sponsored by Vietnam
Veterans Against the War. It will
be separate from a larger march
being planned by the National
Peace Action Coalition and the
People's Coalition for Peace and
Justice.
The veteran-sponsored march
will start at 11 a.m. EST Satur-
day, an hour before President
Nixon takes the oath of office
and two hours before the inaugu-
ral march is due to begin.
Officials of the veterans' group
(as have the sponsors of the
main march) said that every ef-
fort will be made to keep their
march peaceful.
Both marches will start at the
gates of Arlington National Cem-
etery across from the Potomac
River.
The main march plans to hold
a rally on the Washington Monu-
ment grounds that will last most
of the afternoon, but the veter-

ans' march will culminate in a
treaty signing ceremony near
the Lincoln Memorial.
The protesting congressmem-
bers will join the veterans at the
Lincoln Memorial at 1:30 p.m.,
Edwards stated.
Bart Savage, national coordi-
nator of the veterans, said at a
news conference that his group
is staging its own protest be-
cause it doesn't want its peace
message lost in theatrics.
The peace treaty the marchers
will sign is the draft made public
last October when Foreign Af-
fairs Advisor Henry Kissinger
declared peace was at hand.
Savage said he thinks the latest
speculation that peace is near
is no more likely to be true now
than it was then.
"It's just a sham to keep peo-
ple away from the demonstra-
tions," he said.
The second newly planned
event, which congress members
also plan to attend, is an inter-
faith religious service called an
"Inauguration of Conscience,"
that will take place on Sunday
at 2 p.m.
According to Edwards, the
theory behind the Sunday "In-
auguration of Conscience" is "to
get us back to where we'should
be with regard to wars and hu-
man behavior."
Henry Niles, an official of
Business Executives Move for
Peace, one of many organizations
sponsoring the Sunday religious
service, said at another news
conference that even if a cease-
fire is achieved, peace in Viet-
nam is a long way off.
"The only hone for peace lies
in Congress cutting off funds for
the war and limiting the Presi-
dent's power to carry on an un-
derlgred war," he said.
"WP fear A may beheading

tion unless our security is
threatened."
Another antiwar religious serv-
ice will be held Friday night in
the Washington National Cathe-
dral. It will feature a musical
mass for peace directed by com-
poser-conductor Leonard Bern-
stein and is intended as a coun-
ter-event to the playing of Tchai-
kovsky's war-like "Overture of
1812" at the official inaugural
concert the same night.
At the other end of the spec-
trum, the calendar of events for
Saturday include:
-11:30 a.m.-Beginning of the
inugurai ceremony;
-1:15 p.m.-Beginning of the
inaugural parade up Pennsylva-
nia Avenue;
-9 p.m.-Inaugural ball.
