Lawyers for Nixon?
A few days ago the formation of a "Law Students for Nixon"
group was announced in a leaflet taped to the wall outside the
law library. It suggested that those interested in working for
Nixon's re-election come out of the woodwork and place their
names in a convenient envelope to their right. Upon inspection,
the names were found to include Joseph Goebbels, Adolph Hitler,
Joseph McCarthy and President Nguyen Van Thieu, and one law
student. Nixon workers have now removed the envelope.
An end to smoke-filled rooms
President Robben Fleming has sent a memo to the faculty
urging them to observe the "No Smoking" signs in classrooms
and asking them to urge their students to do the same. Fleming
said in-class smoking was both "unfair and improper." He
concluded by stating, "For the greatest part of the University's
history both faculty and students got along very nicely without
smoking in classrooms. . . . We can stop it if we will." Good
Smoke without fire
Half of Mosher-Jordan dormitory waited in the cold last
night at 7:00 for a fire that never happened to be extinguished.
Four fire trucks appeared and the dormitory was evacuated after
smoke and a few sparks were seen in the building's elevator
shaft. Students were allowed back into the building within a
McGovern endorses Bullard
Sen. George McGovern has endorsed Democratic state repre-
sentative candidate Perry Bullard for election. In a personal
letter to the local attorney, McGovern praised Bullard for his
legal efforts towards extending the franchise in Michigan.
Democratic Sheriff's candidate Fred Postill yesterday re-
leased the name of his choice for undersheriff. He is James
Spickard, 41, of Melvindale; a 20-year police veteran and a
lieutenant on the Melvindale force. Incumbent Sheriff Douglas
Harvey says that if he is re-elected he will retain Undersheriff
Harold Owings. Owings, who is running as a Republican in the
election, has not yet named his choice for number two man, but
has ruled out Harvey.
Weirdness at Mackinac's
City police are puzzled at some of the weird goings-on at
Mackinac Jack's bar and dancehall early Sunday morning. First
there was a fight. Then there was a small fire. Then investigat-
ing cops discovered two handguns, at least one of them stolen,
in a trash can by the side of the building at 217 S. Ashley. Police
have labelled the fire arson, and say they are investigating the
fight and the guns.

Dole thanks McGovern
BISMARCK, N.D.-Republican National Chairman Robert Dole
said Sunday having Sen. George McGovern on the Democratic
presidential ticket has helped end the war in Vietnam. "If Mc-
Govern were not on the ticket, we would not be ending the war,"
Dole said at a Bismarck news conference. Dole said the North
Vietnamese know they will have to deal with Nixon and there-
fore are taking the negotiating session seriously. "This is the
reason the talks are close," he said.
Italians for Nixon
ROME-Eighteen members of the Italian Parliament an-
nounced yesterday they have formed a committee to support
President Nixon's re-election. They said Nixon is pursuing a
realistic foreign policy, while the policies of Sen. George Mc-
Govern, the Democratic candidate, "could have negative re-
percussions on the life and economy of the Western world, par-
Watergate probe re-opened
NEW YORK-President Nixon has oredered a reopening of
a White House investigation into the June 17 Watergate incident,
CBS News said last night. The report came from Washington
reporter Daniel Schorr on the CBS News with Walter Cronkite.
Schorr said the inquiry was resumed "after President Nixon was
cautioned by acting FBI Director Patrick Gray that the agency
had established more serious direct links to the White House
than the President might know about."
VIENNA, Austria-Four leftist hijackers who held 66 hostages
for a day and a half aboard an airliner commandeered in
Turkey surrendered to Bulgarian authorities in Sofia yesterday.

safe. "All the necessary action has been taken to secure the afe
and rapid return of the passengers, crew and plane to Turkey,"
the agency said.

Pierre Salinger, co-chairman of
the National Citizens' Committee for
McGovern - Shriver, said yesterday
that he expects a Vietnam peace set-
tlement "in the next 48 to 72 hours."
Salinger, speaking during an un-
precedented telephone news confer-
ence with The Daily and 11 other
college newspapers, said he believed
the Nixon Administration has "made
an arrangement with the North Viet-
namese, and that they have convinc-
ed President Thieu to consider the
idea of a coalition government."
However, Salinger declared that
Sen. George McGovern's campaign
has "forced them belatedly to try to
bring an end to this war," and added
that McGovern should "get a great
deal of credit in forcing the Nixon
Administration to move in this area."
The former press secretary to
President John Kennedy said "we all
have a right to be cynical about an
administration that decided to con-
centrate on peace four weeks before
"Why weren't they making these
same efforts in 1969?" Salinger asked.
"The terms are ones that could have,
been organized in February or March
of 1969 as well as November of
Salinger predicted that a nego-
tiated settlement would be a "two-
stage affair: A cease-fire on the
ground, with the understanding that
the South Vietnamese government
will enter into negotiations with the
Viet Cong for the solution to the polit-
ical problems in South Vietnam."
"There fore," he declared, "I think
this administration will be able to
i e t.c
disguise the political settlement un-
til after the election. All that we will
hear before the election will be about
the cease-fire, an arrangement for
the U.S. to leave South Vietnam, for
the North Vietnamese troops to leave
South Vietnam, and some kind of ar-
rangement for the release of the pri-
soners of war, leaving the political
settlement to the South Vietnamese
and the Viet Cong themselves."
Despite his prediction of an im-
minent peace settlement, Salinger
was optimistic about his candidate's
chances. He said that Democratic-
sponsored polls s h o w McGovern
trailing the incumbent by only 10
percentage points in New York and
3 in California.
Particularly on campuses around
the nation, Salinger commented "sup-
port is coming back strong" for Mc-
Govern. A Gallup Poll conducted ear-
ly this month showed McGovern lead-
ing the President by a slim two per-
cent margin among students, while
polls just after the Democratic Con- v
vention in July gave the Democrats
a 25 per cent advantage.
However, Salinger disputed the
Gallup findings, citing recent polls
giving McGovern a strong lead on
campuses in the key states with large
The long - time political activist
stressed that in order to win, Mc-
Govern "must have the support of
regular Democrats." Salinger agreed
with recent national polls showing a
return of some traditional Democra-
tic voters to McGovern.

KISSINGER BACK FROM SAIGON

WASHINGTON (M - Presidential aide Henry Kissinger
returned to Washington last night to report on his latest
peace negotiations in Saigon. Statements from Vietnam In-
dicated the attempts fell short of an accord.
"We made some progress," was Kissinger's only com-
ment on returning. He planned to report to President Nixon
later last night and again this morning.
There was no other comment on progress or lack of it
as a result of the latest round of meetings. In fact, there was
no official word on what was discussed. But an apparent

"We have made progress," the
statement said. "Talks will con-
tinue between us and the govern-
ment of Vietnam. It is no in the
interest of negotiations to be more
specific at this time."
Tin Song, a newspaper that often
reflects Thieu views, said the
general impression of observers
was that negotiations between
Thieu and Kissinger had been con-
ducted in a "very heated atmos-
phere in the face of the unyielding
Vietnamese determination to stand
pat on its position."
"Throughout the duration of the
negotiations between the U. S.
delegation and President Thieu, ob-
servers noted that the South Viet-
namese had always maintained
their clear-cut position to reject
any peace solution contrary to the
interests of the South Vietnamese
people," Tin Song continued.

palace said he could not confirm

Embassy would not go beyond its

The state Attorney General's of-
fice has accused a ]etroit-based
charter tour company of "false and
misleading" advertising in con-
nection with a tour to the Costa
del Sol region of Spain last May.
Vacation Travel Inc., which ad-
