Union break-in
Four people went for a prowl around the fourth floor of the
Union Sunday night, forcing entry into at least seven rooms.
But they didn't steal anything, according to Union Manager Stan-
field Wells. The prowlers were reported by a startled Union
resident and apparently got scared away before they could
get anything. A number of student rooms and the Legal Aid
office were broken into. University unit police are checking
it out.
Children behave!
President Robben Fleming and Ohio State President Harold
Enarson are worried about what Michigan and Ohio fans will do
to the stadium, referees, football players and each other after
Saturday's big finale in Columbus. They issued a joint state-
ment yesterday urging fans to keep the mayhem in the stands
from exceeding the mayhem on the field. The statement reads,
"we hope that all our fans . . . will be good sports either in
victory or defeat, and that we will be as proud of them as we
are of our respective teams."
Fashion show
Something's, going to happen at Northville State Hospital
today that generally doesn't happen at mental institutions. There's
going to be a fashion show. Kay Baum of Ann Arbor is provid-
ing the clothes and models for the show as a part of the
psychology department's Outreach Program. According to pro-
gram spokespersons, the idea is to give the patients - parti-
cularly women soon to be released - an up-to-date understand-
ing of the world outside the institution's walls.
Diag assault
Two thugs, described as teen-aged white males, assaulted
and attempted to rob a 14-year-old Ann Arbor youth on the
Diag Sunday night. According to police reports, the two knocked
the youth down and slashed his arm with a knife. For an as yet
unexplained reason, the assailants fled without taking any money.
The police are investigating.

USO scandal
WASHINGTON-Officials of the USO-a supposedly non-profit
organization which runs clubs for servicemen overseas - have
been raking in profits from black market operations, accord-
ing to a Pentagon report. The secret report-released by the
Washington Post-reveals large scale corruption with some USO
officials suspected of clearing as much as $1 million and deposit-
ing it in foreign banks. USO is supported mainly through public
fund raising efforts.
Dirty campaign
WASHINGTON-The head of the Fair Campaign Practices
Committee says the 1972 election was the dirtiest in recent his-
tory. Sam Archibald, the committee's executive director, says
complaints this year were up 25 per cent over 1968. A significant
percentage of the complaints, according to Archibald, concerned
abuses of the free mailing privilege given to members of Con-
Gerrymander obsolete?
NEW YORK - Ann Arbor Ward Boundary Commission take
note! The New York Academy of Sciences says computers will
make the gerrymander extinct. Participants in a recent academy
conference met to discuss various ways computers can be used
to draw non-partisan and hopefully equitable voting districts.
Military suit
WASHINGTON - The National Prison Project of the Ameri-
can Civil, Liberties Union is suing the Army and Air Force for
violating the constitutional privileges of inmates in military
prisons. The suit-filed on behalf of inmates in the U.S. Disci-
plinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and at military
stockades throughout the country-alleges unlawful censorship
of inmate's mail and racial discrimination.
Mineral cheating?
DENVER - Spokespersons for the American Indian Move-
ment (AIM) say documents stolen from the Bureau of Indian
Affairs building earlier this month show that five major U.S.
corporations have been cheating Indians in order to obtain min-
eral rights. Phillips Petroleum, Standard Oil of California, Phelps
Dodge, Peabody Coal, and Sinclair Oil are all accused. All five
companies have denied that they cheat Indians.

Mexico angry
MEXICO CITY - The Mexicans are getting pretty angry
with the U.S. and the issue is an old one - foreign investments.
According to the National Bank of Mexico, 35 per cent of that
country's most important corporations are partially foreign-own-
ed, and the Mexican government is starting to crack down on
further foreign investment. Feelings south of the border were
hardly soothed by an article in Barron's magazine - a Wall
Street-oriented publication - which said Mexico's restrictions
on foreign investment are "killing the bird that laid the golden
egg "

renew talks
By The Associated Press and Reuters
PARIS-Presidential envoy Henry Kissinger met for five
and a half hours yesterday with North Vietnamese negotia-
tor Le Duc Tho in the first of a series of secret talks that
officials say will bring a ceasefire to Vietnam.
There was no formal announcement of their meeting
from either side, but the two men were seen at the villa by
television reporters.
Kissinger, Tho and their advisers lunched in the villa,
presumably together. They left the villa to return to their
respective residences at 4 p.m. They were driven to and from

Reading on, Calhoun, stated that

opening fire. The fact that the two
black men were killed for these
reasons, emphasizes the vulner-
able position of all black students
on all campuses.
"We realize that our position on
this campus is equally vulnerable

tions that they were asking there,
