Green investigation nearly over
The chemistry department committee reviewing the sus-
pension of Prof. Mark Green says it will complete its report on
the case by Monday. According to a progress report, the com-
mitte has met for 60 hours since it began the investigation Oct.
16. In that time, it has assembled 500 pages of recorded testi-
mony from Green, Department Chairman Thomas Dunn, other
chemistry professors, 15 of 18 organic chemistry teaching fellows
and 70 students enrolled in Green's Chemistry 227 course. The
committee added that it will examine the "conduct" of Chem-
istry 227 this term, the actions of chemistry professors involved
in the decision to suspend Green, and "questions of assignment
or reassignment of teaching duties."
HRP's attacker revealed
Human Rights Party state representative candidate Steve
Burghardt is upset by a series of small display ads which have
appeared in The Daily this week, tying his candidacy to the
Nazis. Even Burghardt's Democratic opponent, attorney Perry
Bullard, has issued a statement decrying the ads as unfair.
Today has determined that the ads have been placed by a self-
described "retired soldier" named Allen O'Brien. O'Brien is
spending some $150 on his personal campaign against HRP.
College papers support McGovern
Twenty-five college newspapers have endorsed an editorial
which ran in The Daily Wednesday, calling for "energetic sup-
port, in every conceivable way, for the candidacy of George
McGovern." The editorial called next Tuesday's presidential
election a "national emergency" and urged voters to turn out
for the Democratic candidate. Among those papers supporting
our statement are all the Big Ten college papers, the Harvard
Crimson, the Daily Texan, the Daily Californian and the Yale
Daily News.

It's been a long, long campaign trail for George McGovern

yesterday told him, "Senator, Nixon is going to beat you so

unruffled one-time seminary student reportedly replied, "Kiss
my ass." Meanwhile, Vice President Spiro Agnew, up to his
knees with heckler problems of his own, told a crowd in Los
Angeles that legislation may have to be enacted to protect a

The show must go on
Those folks out In California may hear that President Nixon
is the projected winner of next Tuesday's election before they
go to the polls. The Federal Communications Commission yes-
terday rejected a request by Gov. Ronald Reagan which would
have barred the networks from broadcasting in the Far West
elections returns from the East before the polls close out there.
Reagan claimed that such projections "undoubtedly tend, where
polls have not yet closed, to influence many potential voters in
their decision to vote or not to vote, much like the weather." In
a key state like California, maybe it could make a difference.

Shades of the tin woodsman. Marcel Champoussin, a 39-year-
old Frenchman, decided he wanted a heart transplant. So he
sold everything he owned, took the $25,000 and traveled to Cali-
fornia for the operation. But, alas! The "wizards" at the Stan-
ford Medical Center told him his heart was too sound to qualify.
A recipient, they said, must either face imminent death or be
totally incapacitated to receive a new heart. But Champoussin
is still hopeful and is staying with friends in Stanford for the
time being. Maybe they'll give him a watch instead.

By CINDY HILL
Due to confused student balloting and general computer
unpredictability, this week's all-campus election results were
not available last night.
According to election officials, they may not be tabulat-
ed until late tonight, if then.
At the Rackham Bldg., where ballots were being pro-
cessed for the North Campus Computer Center, Credentials
and Rules Committee (C&R) chairperson Bob Stephens re-
ported the scanner, which converts the ballots to computer
cards, was taking some ballots and rejecting many others.
The scanner, according to Stephens, has been catching

CANADIAN PARTIES TIED:
Trudeau to retain post
despite party setback

Peace talks
postponed'
indefinitely
By the AP and Reuters
President Nixon and the Hanoi
government gave two differing
views on the status of the pro-
nosed peace plan yesterday, with
North Vietnam declaring there will
be no further negotiations until
the United States commits itself to
signing the document, and Presi-
dent Nixon calling the plan a major
breakthrough needing only a few
more clarifications before 'being
signed.
For related story, see Page 7
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
speakers denounced the Nixon ad-
ministration for what they called
"a breach of promise" in failing to
sign the accord by Oct. 31, the
deadline set by Hanoi.
However, the President told the
American people last night in a
paid political broadcast supporting
his re-election campaign that a
major breakthrough had b e e n
achieved toward his goal of 'peace
with honor' in Vietnam and that
substantial agreement had been
reached on most of the items of a
settlement.
The settlement he was ready to
conclude, he said, would accom-
plish his basic objectives-the re-
turn of American prisoners, a
ceasefire in Indochina, and safe-
guarding the right of the South
Vietnamese people to determine
their future without having a com-
munist or coalition government im-
posed upon them against their will.
"There are still some provisions
of the agreement which must be
clarified so that all ambiguities
will be removed," he said. "I have
insisted that these be settled be-
fore we sign the final agreement."
Meanwhile, highly-placed admin-
istration sources last night denied
a report that Henry Kissinger
would hold another round of talks
with North Vietnamese negotiators
before the end of the week.
The report, run in the New York
Daily News, said Kissinger was
expected to fly to Paris today. The
sources said the report was in-
accurate and that they did not
know when or if Hanoi would re-
spond to Nixon's call for another
negotiating session.
Sen. George McGovern, speaking
on a television program screened
throughout the state last night, re-
sponded to Nixon's nationwide ad-
dress by saying he was very, very
much disappointed with what Nix-
on said on iVietnam, and that this
disappointment was shared by mil-
lions of Americans.
While McGovern has said he
would r e j o i c e if peace was
achieved now in Vietnam, the sen-
ator has displayed increasing skep-
ticism in the past two or three
days that the U.S. government will
override South Vietnamese Presi-
dent Nguyen Van Thieu's opposi-
tion to the terms of the agreement
worked out between Washington
and Hanoi.
McGovern, in asserting he now
thought peace was not near after
all, recalled Nixon's statement on
the eve of the 1968 presidential
election that a President who could
not achieve peace in four years
did not deserve a 'second chance.
McGovern also said during the
program: "It appears the efforts

OTTAWA (IP) - Pierre Elliott
Trudeau said last night his Lib-
eral government will stay on
and face Parliament despite the
stunning electoral setback that
chopped away his majority.
The prime minister acknowl-
edged in a televised news con-
ference that his Liberals' show-
ing in the Monday elections "re-
flected the view of a good many
Canadians that government for
the last four and a half years
has not been satisfactory."
"The continuation of my gov-
ernment will depend on the Par-
liament," he said.
Processing of election results

developed yesterday into an ex-
act tie between the Liberal and
Conservative parties at 109
seats each in the House of Com-
mons, with recounts still under
way in several tight races. Pre-
viously, Conservatives had held
a one-seat lead.
The balance in the 264-member
house is held by the socialistic
New Democrats, with 30 seats.
David Lewis, the New Demo-
crat party leader, pledged his
support for the Liberal govern-
ment on condition that the gov-
ernment does not introduce legis-

accept.
Lewis, in a news conference
held after Trudeau's, said the
New Democrats would not seek
to obstruct Parliament and throw
the country into new elections,
but he added that no Canadian
believes the new Parliament can
last a full term of four years.
Trudeau said Monday's elec-
tion indicated to him "that there
have been some failures."
But Trudeau said he is not go-
ing to "govern for any particu-
lar party" and added that he
does not believe the Liberal gov-
ernment needs the New Demo-I
crats.
Trudeau added that he has not
been able to account for the Lib-
eral decline but hopes to present
legislation that will respond to
complaints indicated by the elec-
tions.
An economic package, he said,
will have to be placed before
Parliament that will fight unem-
ployment without causing "gal-
loping inflation."
The prime minister said he
will ask the governor-general to
convene Parliament as soon as
possible after the final election
results have been established.
This is expected to take about a
month.
Official vote tabulations now
coming in must be recounted in
each district where the margin
between the two leading candi-
dates is less than 25 ballots.
Some official tabulations differ
from earlier unofficial counts.
