Med school blues?
Freshmen medical students aren't finding their studies as
boring as they might have imagined. As part of the "Sex and
Reproduction" sequence of their Clinical Medicine class, the
students recently viewed a film on "Normal Sexual Behavior",
complete with a couple rolling around in the woods, and films
on male and female masturbation. The productions note care-
fully, however, that the films are to be used "for educational
and research purposes only."
Insanity notes
The Ozone Central Committee, organizer of the Ozone Home-
coming Parade tomorrow afternoon, yesterday asked us to point
out that they have no connection with the UAC Homecoming
festivities planned this week, especially the grease homecoming
queen contest. Ozone feels that although it is up to individual
women whether to participate in the homecoming queen com-
petition, the queen contest can be construed as sexist.
Massage parlor hearing
The cases of three persons arrested during raids of local
massage parlors last week have been turned over to Washtenaw
County Circuit Court for trial on charges of pandering. The
three, Daniel Davis, Melanie Lingoes and Deborah Green under-
went pretrial examination yesterday in Judge Pieter Thomas-
sen's District Court. The only testimony heard was from Police-
woman Martha Parks, who posed as a job seeker at the two
establishments. November trial dates were set for all three.
Food co-op reopens
The People's Food Co-op is open for business again. after
an irritating series of moves begun when they were evicted from
their State St. store. The co-op's new location is 722 Packard,
about a block away from the old place. The co-op is open for
business every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. except Wednesday
and Sunday.
Times endorses Kelley
Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley's campaign got a surprise boost
Tuesday, when he received the endorsement of The New York
Times in his race for a seat in the U.S. Senate. The Times
called his opponent, Sen. Robert Griffin, a "down-the-line sup-
porter of the Nixon Administration." The paper also said of
Griffin: "All Michigan politicians this year have been running
away from the school bussing issue but he has proposed a dan-
gerous constitutional amendment on the subject."
George gallups on
The Gallup Poll reported yesterday that George McGovern
has shown gains in the polls - particularly among manual labor-
ers. However, the Democratic presidential aspirant is still 23
percentage points behind President Nixon, 59-36, with five per
cent undecided or having no opinion.

SAIGON (R) - Communist
forces intensified their at-
tacks across South Vietnam
yesterday while the United
States continued its policy of
limited bombing over the
North.
The communist actions come on-
ly a day after South Vietnam'sI
President Nguyen Van Thieu an-
nounced his unwillingness to agree
to a peace settlement.
Radio Hanoi, in reacting to the
speech yesterday laid the blame
{for Thieu's rejection of peace of-
fers squarely on the United
States.
"The United States government
must bear the entire responsibility
concerning the obstacles to the ne-
gotiations and the prolongation of
the war," the station said.
BULLETIN
Radio Hanoi has announced
that the United States and North
Vietnam "have r e a c h e d an
agreement for settling of the war
in South Vietnam," the United
P r e s s International reported
early this morning.
Subsequent information from
the Associated Press said the
agreement was reached Oct. 8
and there is question as to
whether it is binding.
UPI quoted Radio Hanoi's
broadcast as adding that the
communists "will continue fight-
ing until final victory."
Earlier, around midnight, re-
ports came of a communist doc-
ument captured in Da Nang
commanding Viet Cong there to
lay down their arms at 11 a.m.
Saturday, Vietnamese time.

in scandal
WASHINGTON (R) - Presi-
dent Nixon's chief of staff, H.
R. Haldeman, was one of five
close Nixon associates who
controlled a secret campaign
spying and sabotage fund,
The Washington Post report-
ed yesterday.
The sabotage fund, according to
the Post, was a cache of as much
as $700,000.
The paper said it based the re-
port on information from federal
investigators plus accounts of
sworn testimony given to a grand
jury investigating the June 17
break-in at Democratic national
headquarters in the Watergate
building.
The newspaper said it has been
told that Haldeman, a Nixon
aide for 16 years, and the four
others authorized to make pay-
ments from the secret fund, were
identified in grand jury testimony
by Hugh Sloan Jr., who quit as
treasurer of the Nixon campaign
organization shortly after the Wat-
ergate break-in.
The four were identified as:
-John Mitchell, former attor-
ney general and the first director
of the Committee for the Re-elec-
tion of the President.
-Maurice Stans, former Com-
merce Secretary and nowdirector
of the Finance Committee to Re-
elect the President.
-Jeb Magruder, onetime White
House aide and now deputy direc-
tor of the Nixon campaign com-
mittee.
-Herbert Kalmbach, described
by the Post as Nixon's personal
jattorney.
Haldeman is the only one of the
five still working in the White
House.
The Post said it has learned that
all five men have been questioned
by the FBI about disbursements
from the fund.
Sloan, the ex-treasurer of the
campaign, has told the grand jury
that one who received money from
the fund was G. Gordon Liddy.
Liddy is one of seven men under
indictment in connection with the
Watergate break-in, the incident
which set off the disclosures of an
alleged GOP sabotage ring.
The Post quoted federal investi-
gators as saying that expenditures
of hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars - all approved by either Hal-
deman, Stans, Mitchell, Magruder
or Kalmbach - were made from
the fund to finance an undercover
operation aimed at discrediting
Democratic candidates.
Responding to the charge yes-
terday, the White House strongly
denied that Haldeman had any-
thing to do with an alleged secret
fund.
"This is a political effort by The
Washington Post, well conceived
and coordinated, with the aim of
discrediting this administration,"
said Press Secretary Ronald Zieg-
ler.
Emphasizing he was speaking
for the White House, Ziegler flatly
denied the account based on un-
named sources in yesterday's edi-
tions. He said its publication "is a

The proposals which reportedly
have been agreed upon by both
the United States and the North
Vietnamese call for a cease-fire
with both sides holding the terri-
tory they now occupy.
Also included in the agreement
is a plan that calls for the estab-
lishment of a three-party coalition
government which would hold
power until nation-wide elections
could be held.
Since Sunday, the United States
has confined its bombing activity
to points below the 20th parallel
and has also reduced the number
of total missions flown. The let-up
has been interpreted as sign of
good will towards the current
round of negotiations.
In yesterday's fighting, rocket
barrages slammed into the north-
ern port city of Da Nang, two pro-
vince capitals and two district
towns, killing one American ci-
vilian and 26 Vietnamese. An
American civilian and 109 Vietna-
mese were wounded.
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
infantry units maintained pressure
on hamlets and villages along
Highways 1 and 13, within 25 miles
of Saigon, and on government posi-
tions north and south of Pleiku
in the central highlands.
Although the northeast monsoons,
always reduce the air attack on
the North at this time of year, in-
formed sources say orders fromI
President Nixon have curtailed it
even more. It is believed that Nix-
on does not want to acknowledge
the curtailment publicly because
that wouldstend to inhibit his free-
dom to resume heavy strikes on
the Hanoi - Haiphong area should
the current peace negotiations
collapse.

Sen. George McGovern was
clearly heartened by the huge
Detroit area crowds he drew yes-
terday as his underdog cam-
paign kicked into its final two
weeks.
McGovern's first stop was the
Oakland Mall shopping center.
He later addressed an evening
rally at Hazel Park High School.
The understaffed Secret Serv-
ice men obviously were not pre-
pared for the several thousand
people who jammed the Oakland
Mall hoping to see the senator.

After entering the mall Mc-
Govern was quickly rushed into
a small room adjoining the Sing-
er Sewing Center to protect him
from the surging mass of sup-
porters, curious onlookers and
unwary shoppers.
McGovern reappeared in front
of an adjoining shop with Sen.
Edward Kennedy, (D-Mass.),
former Minnesota senator Eu-
gene McCarthy and state Atty.
Gen. Frank Kelley, who is run-
ning for the Senate.
All spoke briefly to the crowd,
which cheered loudly when Ken-

nedy held up a toy stuffed skunk
as a symbol of the Nixon ad-
ministration.
McGovern, still confident that
he will win, reaffirmed his in-
tention to put "Nixon and Agnew
on the unemployment roles."
The Oakland Mall stop was or-
iginally planned to include a
walking tour of the mall, but the
giant crowd prevented it.
Another overflow crowd show-
ed up at a McGovern rally at
Hazel Park High School. After
viewing McGovern's televised
speech on sets scattered through-

dHarvey instigates $25s0,000
'defamation suit against Postill

out the auditorium, the candi-
date's supporters waited impa-
tiently for his appearance.
In his nationwide television ad-
dress, McGovern charged that
the Nixon re-election machine
had "undermined the personal
freedoms of Americans and the
constitutional framework of our
government."
McGovern reviewed the list of
corruption charges against the
Nixon administration, and said
the United States must return to
"moral, responsible presidential
leadership."
McGovern promised to name a
woman to the first vacancy on
the Supreme Court during his
administration.
Noting that Nixon has said that
he favors a merit system for ap-
pointments, McGovern asked if
the President believes "that
there is not one woman, one
Jew, one black, or one Polish-
American who merits appoint-
ment to the Supreme Court or to
his cabinet?"
Speaking of the problems of
working women, the senator
noted that such women "only
share their husband's benefits."
"The result," he said, "is that
working women have subsidized
the Social Security System to the
tune of $25 billion, without re-
ceiving their fair share of re-
turns on that system."

Washtenaw County Sheriff Doug-
las Harvey filed a $250,000 defama-
tion of charater suit yesterday
against Fred Postill, his Democra-
tic challenger in the November
sheriff's race.
In the suit, Harvey charged that
Postill had accused him of the
statutory rape of a 15 year-old girl.1
The alleged crime took place in
1962 when Harvey was a member
of the Ypsilanti police force.
Postill, who with Republican Un-
dersheriff Harold Owings is oppos-z
ing Harvey's try for a third term,
denied ever using the allegations
about the rape in his campaign.
Postill contended that Charles
Broderick, a lieutenant in the
Sheriff's Department and a Har-
vey campaign aide, attempted in
a phone call to trick him into
making a statement accusing Har-
vey of the rape.
Harvey's suit alludes to such an
incident, claiming that the accusa-
tions were made to persons, "who
have telephoned Postill and sought
information concerning thecan-
didates for the office of Sheriff in
Washtenaw County."
The sheriff also charged in his:
complaint that Postill falsely,
claimed that Harvey gave a stolen
camper-trailer to his brother-in-
law, used $10,000 in county money
to buy two expensive automobiles,
sold a used sheriff's vehicle to hisj
brother for a nominal sum, and im-
properly gave his wife and son
employment in the sheriff's de-
partment.
Harvey was the recent subject
of an investigation by County Pros-
ecutor William Delhey concerning!

Peace settlement hopes fade
after Kissinger-Thien talks

Daily News Analysis
The ebullient optimism over chances for a
peace settlement in Indochina has noticeably
dimmed in the past day or two.
With only White House announcements of "some
progress" to go on, the press' initial enthusiasm
about the prospects for peace has gradually begun
to fade.
This pessimism has been justified from sources

mentators-began to take on more important
implications. United States diplomats at that time
were reportedly cautioned that the North Viet-
namese had an "unpleasant military surprise"
for the Americans in Vietnam if agreement were
not reached within a three-day period.
