Trotter House opens
If you've been holding your breath in anticipation of the
Trotter House grand opening, you've probably died by now. But
if you're still alive and mildly curious, you'll be pleased to know
the all-new Trotter House is opening its doors today to black
students interested in checking the place out. The new house,
located at 1443 Washtenaw, will serve as a center for black
social and cultural activities. It will also house satellite offices
of various black interest groups on campus. T. R. Harrison,
director of the house, says he's expecting lots of people to show
up, so don't disappoint him.
Abortion reform seems doomed in the state, at least if you
care to trust the Detroit New;. A News poll yesterday shows 54
per cent of those questioned against Proposal B, 42 per cent in
favor, and four per cent undecided. Other things the state's
populace are expected to vote against include both tax proposals,
C and D on your ballot. This would do away with the property
tax as the main funding for public education, but would refuse
to lift a state ban on graduated income taxes. The closest race
appears to be the one on when to set your watches, as the News
reports 52 per cent in favor, of joining the rest of the country
with Daylight Savings Time and 45 per cent opposed, with three
per cent undecided.
'Stop the voting'?!
Two more people have drowned in the wake of the Watergate
affair. Richard Levy and Ann Reynis, both grad students, lost a
bid in court yesterday to have the presidential election here
halted until details of the Watergate affair are aired and charges
against the Republicans settled. The two claim they "couldn't
make an itelligent vote" Tuesday without further knowledge.
Even before U.S. District Judge Cornelia Kennedy denied the
attempt, the two said they wouldn't "bet a buck" on their
chances. Reynis and Levy are now looking for free legal help
to continue the case. "Just think if we did win," said Levy.
"After all, politics and the ridiculous do go together."
... A coalition of political groups is sponoring a peace rally
in Detroit, starting at 1 p.m. at Kennedy Square. The idea is to
support the Provisional Revolutionary Government's 16-month-old
seven point peace plan, which calls for the United States to set a
date for total withdrawal and end its support of the Thieu gpv-
ernment. Demonstrators plan to hold protests at the Federal
Bldg., the Free Press and the Detroit News. They say the two
papers have "ignored" the peace plan. . . . If you're into the

Papoon for Pres.
ROCHESTER-George Washington Papoon, the National
Surrealist Light People's Party presidential candidate, made an
impressive campaign stop at the Rochester Institute of Tech-
nology yesterday, reports our woman in New York. Papoon,
wearing a pink carnation in his buttonhole, told the crowd "I
stand for honesty and integrity." He also said he favors a ten
per cent cut in all politician's salaries but the President's and
imprisonment for all children. "I say today's child is tomorrow's
thief. Lock them up before they steal." Papoon's platform also
includes a return to the horse and buggy and the U.S. leaving
Vietnam immediately and going "north, south, east, and west."
McGovern on Nixon peace
CHICAGO-Candidate .George McGovern charged last night
that President Nixon's peace promise is a trick to get votes in
next Tuesday's election.
In his toughest speech of the campaign, McGovern told a
nationwide television audience that Nixon has "created an
illusion of peace" and deceived the American people.
McGovern accused Nixon of "a cool political deception
during the period of negotiations with North Vietnam during the
past several weeks.
McGovern admitted that the language he was using was
blunt, but he said'he did not really care whether the blunt words
woud help him or hurt him in the election-since he said his
main goal is getting a peace in South Vietnam now.

The weather picture
You can get an excellent forecast from yesterday's j

overcast skies with a 20 per cent chance of rain and winds
from the southeast at about 7 mph. Tomorrow's weather
can best be typified as "continued cruddy."

Daily News Analysis
One of the biggest questions to be resolv-
ed on Election Day will be the composition
of Congress. Richard Nixon has long com-
plained about the lack of cooperation he
has gotten from the current Democrat-
controlled legislature. With a GOP majority
he feels he can push through "meaningful
But even though a Nixon victory is ex-
pected, few observers predict that the Re-+
publicans will gain a Congressional ma-
The Republicans, however, have made
close battles out of a number of Southern
races. If the GOP can win most of these
contests, the battle for partisan control
of the House and Senate could be a close 7
The net result of a Republican majority
in Congress, however, is likely to reflect
little if any change in the actual voting
makeup of the legislature.
Most of the hotly-contested Southern
seats are now controlled by Dixiecrats,
whose votes generally coincide with the
wishes of the Nixon Administration al-
Such a majority would be of marginal
assistance to Nixon at best. More likely, the
ouster of several Southern "senior mem-
bers" of Congress would essentially mean
a realignment in Senate and House com-
If the GOP won a Congressional ma-
jority and committees were revamped to
include more Republicans, the effect on
Nixon might in fact be damaging. Instead
of having conservative Democrats whose
votes he could count on, Nixon would be
faced with a new committee structure,
.headed primarily by the more senior, and
more liberal, Northern Republicans.
Nixon does not want to lose his influence
on Congressional committees. To assure
that he keeps it, the administration has
been taking quiet steps to aid the re-
election of some Southern Dems.
For example, Nixon has been tactily sup-
porting the campaign of Mississippi Sen.
James Eastland. Eastland, a Democrat,
serves as head of the Senate Judiciary
Committee - a position in which he gave
support to all of Nixon's Supreme Court
nominees and backed Nixon in the Interna-

Only partial results have been returned for this week's
all-campus elections due to sticker and ballot numbers that
simply "don't match up" on computer cards, according to
Elections Director Victor Gutman.
Included in the initial returns are University Housing
Council, Public Interest Research Group in Michigan (PIR-
GIM), Board for Publications, and Rackham election results
along with results of most referenda. First page ballots re-
sults have been delayed by the new computer complications.
The problem which caused all the ballots to be rejected
by the North Campus computers, will be corrected when the
programmer checks the system sometime today.

The proposed peace agreement,
negotiated but still unsigned by

Vietnam within 60 days of cease-

framework would be similar to that

has been fighting a so-called secret
war for 10 years while barred from
overt military participation by the
1962 Geneva agreements.
U.S. military sources said the
advisers would be employed by
civilian firms under contract either
to the U.S. defense or state depart-
