Detroit

By CHARLES STEIN
DETROIT - Presidential
candidate George McGovern
brought h i s campaign to
Michigan yesterday, as he
joined Sen. Edward Kennedy
(D.-Mass.) for an afternoon
rally in Detroit's Kennedy
Square.
An enthusiastic crowd of some
10,000 people heard McGovern
evoke the memory of the late
President John Kennedy - who
4 stood in the same spot twelve
years earlier, also trailing Richard
Nixon in the polls.
. Kennedy's presence on this cam-
paign swing, which will take Mc-
Govern to several major northern
industrial cities, was clearly in-
tended to help McGovern cash in
on the Kennedy appeal to work-
ing people, particularly organized
{ tabor.
Most of McGovern's remarks
were directed towards this work-
ing class audience, as he attacked
the Nixon administration for its
close ties with business.
"I will win this election with the
support of people who make their
living by honest toil, not through
tax loopholes," McGovern pro-
claimed.
Many union officials were on
hand at the rally, and both UAW
President Leonard Woodcock and
Vice-President Douglas Fraser ad-
dressed the crowd. A $50,000 con-
tribution by the union to the cam-
AP Photo paign was also announced by Mc-
Govern.

!Compromise with House
required for final action
WASHINGTON {M - The Senate yesterday by a vote of
63-20 passed a major bill which will allow the federal gov-
' ernment to share its tax revenues with states, cities and
counties for the first time on a no-strings basis.
The bill, one of President Nixon's priority items; was
sent to the House which passed a different version June 22.
If House and Senate conferees reach a compromise on
the bill promptly, the first funds will go out to eligible
states, cities, counties and townships by late October, before
the Nov. 7 presidential election.
The most important difference between the House and
Senate versions of the bill is in the formula for distribution

LONG BATTLE A

entrance
SAIGON (P - South Vietnamese
marines stormed into the Quang
Tri Citadel yesterday and battled
communists in what likely will be
one of the longest and bloodiest
battles of the Vietnam war.
About 400 communist troops kept
up stubborn resistance from bunk-'
ers inside the fortress as South
Vietnamese forces attacked from
the north, east and south.
CMeanwhile, marines outside the
Citadel's walls were closing off
North Vietnamese avenues of sup-
ply and reinforcement.
One marine battalion southwest
of the fortress has been blocking
the communists' river supply route.
In addition monsoon rains have
swollen the Thach Han River west
of the provincial capital helping to
cut the Citadel's normal lifeline.
Marine spokespersons have re-
ported "im o d e r a t e" casualties,
claiming many communists were
surrendering without a fight.

Court acts

WASHINGTON OP) - Supreme
Court Justice William Douglas re-
fused to block a school busing de-
segregation plan for Las Vegas,
Nev. yesterday.
Douglas ruled the so-called
Broomfield Amendment does not
apply to the desegregation or-
dered by a federal judge for some
30,000 elementary pupils in 52 of
the city's schools.
The decision blunts Congress'
attempt to halt court-ordered bus-
ing in school desegregation cases.
Earlier this month Justice Lewis
Powell Jr. also held that the
amendment, enacted last June, did
not apply in an Augusta, Ga., case.
Whether Douglas' ruling will
send the children to their class-
rooms or not was unclear. Al-
though other public schools open-
ed on schedule in Las Vegas Sept.
6, the children affected by the de-
segregation orders of U.S. Judge
Bruce Thompson have remained
at home while the school board
fought in courts to overrule him.
In their brief to Douglas for a
stay the board officials had the
support of the Justice Depart-
ment, which suggested Powell had
erred in refusing a similar request
from Augusta officials.

According to its authors, Keith
Murphy and Bill Krebaum, the mo-i
tion says SGC does not "contribute
to the educational goals of the Uni-
versity," has a "lack of support"
from the student body, should not
be a "duty or 'obligation, but,
rather, a matter of choice."
In addition, it stated, "a volun-

Council members again ran into
controversy over proposed pay in-
creases for district court judges.-
The judges are paid $19,500 by the
state. .,Ann Arbor currently sup-
plements this amount by another
$9,500, making the pay total $29,-
000.
Because the current case load
of the judges is reportedly one of-
the highest in southeastern Michi-
gan, an additional $2,000 raise of
the city pay supplement was pro-
posed.
HRP objections notwithstanding,
the raises were approved, 9-2, with

Approximately 3,000 people have
