Student organizers have called for a strike at Huron High
today to protest the recently-adopted school board disciplinary
policy. According to organizers from Pioneer and Huron, the
strike will be the focus of dissent for all the students in the dis-
trict. They said they will be trying to get 60 per cent of the stu-
dents to strike, which they say would force the school to close
for the day. Last week also, students protested the disciplinary
policy, picketing at Tappan Jr. High.

Californians voted on an incredible total of 22 state-wide
propositions, Tuesday. The proposal to legalize persons 18 and
'older to smoke marijuana, grow it in their backyards and trans-
port it, was defeated by a two to one margin. Californians also
turned down the attempt to introduce strict censorship on nudity
and obscenity. Passed, however, was the proposition to restore
the death penalty to California. The American Civil Liberties
Union plans to launch court fights against its restoration. Despite
heavy opposition, environmentalists won a clear victory in their
battle to reduce piecemeal development of the coast, by creat-
ing state and regional commissions to oversee planned develop-
ment. California's growers' proposal to regulate employe rela-
tions in their industry was defeated by a large majority. The
plan would have prohibited tactics such as the United Farm
Worker's boycott of non-union lettuce.
Indians retreat-with booty
WASHINGTON - Some 350 Indians today ended their week-
long occupation of the U. S. government Bureau of Indian Af-
fairs (BIA), apparently satisfied with assurances of White House
attention - and reinforced by three truckloads of purloined
secret documents. The Indians, protesting against their treat-
ment by the U. S. Government and demanding that the bureau
be abolished and that old treaty rights be respected, Tuesday
night won agreement from the White House that a special com-
mission will investigate their problems. Dennis Banks, a spokes-
man for the Indians, said the occupation group had seized at least
three truckloads of highly incriminating documents relating to
treaty rights, and other Indian affairs which could be damaging
to several congressmen and senators. He said the documents
included secret FBI reports, but did not elaborate on their con-
President Nixon's re-election seems to have drawn mixed,
but for the most part, pleased reactions around the world. "We
are very happy," said Foreign Minister Fran Van Lam in Sai-
gon, adding "The victory "will impel Hanoi to be more logical
and more constructive in forthcoming discussion." An official
Thailand spokesman said Nixon had been "close to us" and
added "we did not want a friend who is unfamiliar to us." Pres.
Georges Pompidou of France sent his "hearty congratulations
on your brilliant re-election." Artist Salvador Dali sent a tele-
gram congratulating Nixon. Dali signed the telegram with "hom-
age from Spain's most modern monarchist to the president of
the largest republic." News of Nixon's re-election was carried
at the bottom of page five in the official -Cuban government
newspaper "Granma". For years now, the Cuban communist
party has been spelling Nixon with a swastika instead of an
"x" and Granma did today. North Vietnam's comment, however,
seems to mirror others today . . . has heard: "Americans who go
to the polls have the feeling of despair for the past and uncer-
tainty for the future."

The damper on community spirits will continue today,
with typical November cloudy-and-clammy atmospheric
inclemency. Temperatures will range from 45 today down

Romney, Laird included

tory, President Nixon yesterday announced plans for a sig-
nificant shakeup of the White House staff and departmental
According to Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler, the Presi-
dent informed his aides that he is considering a "restructur-
ing" of the executive branch of government.
Ziegler noted it is traditional for presidential appointees
to submit pro forma resignati

has tradition been underlined

announcement of the fact.

home, would spend four or five
daysthere in what he termed as
intensive discussions with such
principal staff assistants as H. R.
Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and
Responding to questions, Ziegler
would give no hint of whose resig-
nations Nixon might accept. In
fact, he insisted the President has
yet to make such decisions.
Despite Ziegler's denials, it is
common knowledge that several
Cabinet officials are planning to
resign in the near future.

WASHINGTON - Even with his
record - breaking victory Tuesday,
President Nixon failed to come
even close to attaining his "work-
ing majority" in Congress.
In the Senate the Democrats
actually gained two seats, while
in the House the GOP picked up
around 1seats-a far cry from the
39 needed to gain control.
The result, according to most ob-
servers, is likely to be an increase
in hostility between the White
House and Capitol Hill over the
next four years.

In a race that saw two sets of
candidates trade front positions
all night, it appears that the
Republican candidates for the
two seats on the University's
Board of Regents have emerged
as the winners.
With 92 perscent of the vote
tallied Lawrence Lindemer, the
incumbent, and Deane Baker,
were leading their Democratic
opponents, Thomas Roach and
Marjorie Lansing in their bids
for the open positions.

statewide electoral victory. He

while Roach had 1,249,000.
Baker said the race was
"closely contested." "It mostly
depended on the Kelly-Griffin
race," he said.
Lindemer said that he saw no
major departure in the direction
