DETROIT-Democratic presidential hopeful George McGovern
was still trailing President Nixon in the opinion polls, but by
how much depended on which poll you read. A poll conducted
for Time magazine and the New York Times put McGovern 39
percentage points behind Nixon-23 to 62 per cent. But a new
poll, announced in Detroit last night by veteran sampler Louis
Harris, held out some encouragement for the senator. Harris
said McGovern trailed 31 to 59 per cent, with ten per cent of
the voters undecided-a margin of only 28 points.
WASHINGTON - A bill to outlaw unauthorized trips by
Americans to nations such as North Vietnam which are in armed
conflict with the United States was approved by the House In-
ternal Security Committee yesterday. The legislation, making
it a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000
fine for Americans to make such a trip without presidential
permission, was approved 5 to 0 after a 45-minute hearing. Rep.
Richard Ichord (D-Mo.), committee chairman, said the legisla-
tion is aimed at actions such as those of actress Jane Fonda who
recently made antiwar broadcasts over Hanoi radio during a
visit to North Vietnam.

Sabre jet fighter plunged into an ice cream parlor here Sunday
remained a mystery, as federal investigators held the remains
of the aircraft under tight security wraps at Executive Airport

In response to an investigation by
The Daily, the Board of Directors of
the Michigan Union yesterday voted
to suspend its policy of fingerprinting
its check-cashing customers.
Although not on the agenda, the
members voted to suspend Union
manager Stanfield Well's fingerprint-
ing edict of two weeks ago.
Many complained that they had not
been consulted on the fingerprint
policy. Others had civil libertarian
objections to the rule.
None of six board members inter-
viewed by The Daily knew of the
fingerprinting until they were asked 1

The board members who objected to
the policy called it "an inconvenience
to students," "inappropriate in a Uni-
versity community," and "a violation
of civil liberties."
Union general manager Stanfield
Wells said yesterday he instituted the
fingerprinting in order to combat
check fraud, which he said costs the
Union $400-$500 a year.
He defended his decision not to
bring the matter before his board,

CHINESE PREMIER CHOU EN-LAI greets Japanese Premier
Kakuei Tanaka yesterday at the Peking airport. Tanaka is the
first Japanese premier to visit China since the Chinese revolution.

PEKING (JP)-Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka expressed Japan's
regret and repentence yesterday for past aggression against China and
joined Premier Chou En-lai in predicting total agreement in their talks
to normalize long-strained relations.
Tanaka used the words "profound self-examination" to express
Japan's feeling about a half century of Japanese military aggression
that left China broken and exhausted. He fell short of an outright
apology because he still must face the extreme right wing of his own
Liberal-Democratic party, which is critical of his reconciliation toward
the mainland Chinese.
