James Brown 'misunderstood'
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-The mayor of Knoxville and an attorney
for singer James Brown have announced that Brown's weekend
4 arrest for disorderly conduct was probably a"msnetadg.
Brown claims he was talking to a group of young people about the
* bad influence of drugs after a concert when a white man accused
the singer of trying to start a riot and approached police. Police
$ claim Brown and his party refused to leave when asked to do so.
In the melee that ensued, two patrolmen were hurt and Brown,
'with two aides, was arrested. Brown, saying he had been beaten
by police, threatened a $1 million law suit against the city. The
*r parties will meet Friday to discuss "differences brought about by
the incident."
-f Dope notes
t WASHINGTON-After a year-long investigation, government
auditors have decided that heroin smuggling is too big an opera-
tion to stop at the U.S. borders. Estimating that they seized only
4 six-and-a-half per cent of the total traffic, the General Accounting
'41 Office concluded that customs inspectors trying to intercept the
10 to 12 tons of heroin entering the U.S. annually are searching
for a needle in a haystack. They criticized detection methods as
, "haphazard and unrealistic."

Kissingcnet-the new diversion?

The smells of pig night came rushing back
to me . . . A return to the goldfish era?
Maybe. But the teetotalers of the fifties had
been usurped by a more daring and prova-
cative test of endurance. A new world's
record was set Monday night as three
couples tied in the second annual "kissing
contest" held in South Quad's dining area.
With Paul McCartney dead and gone,
could we still exist on yesterday's diver-
sions? The advent of dope and revolution
transformed us, and 'made us search a
higher consciousness. Goldfish reminded
us of our sad, sick parents. We were the
crown of creation, and the problem was how
to express our newly found identity. Though
endurance and competition still reigned
supreme, the game changed.
The rules were simple enough. Grab a
partner, lock succulent lips, and pray your
back would outlast the others. Master

referee, Greg Kateff, an avowed alumni
of the first annual, made sure that no one
cheated through lip separation.
The initial five couples were goaded on
by the envious cries of the encircling crowd
of voyeurs. Steadfastly they stood, hoping
to be number one, or at least break last
year's record of two and a half grinding
hours. Inevitably, someone had to give.
Jan and Greg were the first to give and
left with a terse, "We have better things
to do with our time." Official protest or
Nevertheless, the vanguard was left to
be spearheaded by four "jocks"-three
gridders and a basketball player. These
people were programmed to win, and the
final strains of "We're Number One" were
still echoing off the walls of the stadium.
Forty minutes and six telephone books-
to bridge height differentials-later Judge
Kateff proclaimed a three way tie. The
prize: three steak dinners.

The winners were: Jeff "Dancing Bear"
Perlinger and Sally Dayton; Steve Strinko
and Sue Marks; and John Kantner and
Fran Brenner".
The next day catcalls of "Hey there, hot
lips!" followed our new world champions
down the dank corridors of S. Quad. Sally,
Sue, and Fran were complaining of lip
paralysis and acute neck pains. None were
too sure if it had been worth it, though
Hot Lips Dana would like to see it as a
varsity sport.
The only male winner available for com-
ment was varsity linebacker Steve Strinko
who summed the night up with an incisive
one-liner: "We were all in the same hell
together; it was the desire to win that pulled
us through." Was it fun? According to Sally
Dayton (partner of Jeff "Dancing Bear"
Perlinger), it was terrible." After the first
half hour you're numb." Oh well. Back to
the drawing board.

The draft accord in its present
form followed a negotiated break-
thro~igh which the sources said,
came from a meeting Monday be-
tween Kissinger and Tho.
The U.S. and North Vietnamese
delegations to the peace talks de-j
clined to make any comment on'
the reported breakthrough here.
E But both sides admitted that sub- ,
stantial progress had been achieved
and expressed confidence that a
ceasefire agreement this time was
really at hand.
The new, if not necessarily final,
Kissinger-Tho draft accord basical-
ly embodies the nine points of an.
agreement reached last October;
which was unilaterally published
Hanoi and largely confirmed later
by the United States, the sources
said. But it contains a number of .
clarifications and additionall
clauses, they added.
Sharing the optimism in the
Paris air was France's Foreign
Minister, Maurice Schumann, who
predicted that the end of the war
would come on by Jan. 3.
Schumann, who has been in close
contacts with both sides, made his
statements d u r i n g a luncheon
speech yesterday. He said he be-
lieves the United States will
achieve peace in Vietnam before
the new U.S. Congress convenes
on the third.
"A settlement is likely and prob-
able," he said: "I confirm I am
not a pessimist."
However, the Viet Cong delega-
tion here called "absurd and arro-
gant" a speech by South Vietnam's
President Thieu yesterday that
called for a continuation of the war
but asked for a Christmas truce
to exchange prisoners.
The Viet Cong cautioned .he U.S.
against backing the Saigon leader's
latest position.
Kissinger and Tho will confer
again today to continue their ne-
gotiations. The meeting will b,- the
ninth since Kissinger and Tho be-
gan their current round of talks.

Cicano s

Johns on
Some 30 Chicano students crowd-
ed into the Office of Special Serv-
ices and Programs (OSSP) in the
Union yesterday and demanded
that University Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson
grant them "immediate and uncon-
ditional control" of $5,000 allotted
to OSSP for the appointment of a
Chicano advocate.
The unusual meeting began when
the s t u d e n t s, who respresent
MECHA (Movimiento Estudianto
Chicano de Aztlan)-a newly form-
ed campus Chicano coalition-
crowded into OSSP Director Libby
Davenport's office and informed a
surprised secretary t h a t they
wouldn't leave before Johnson ap-
peared and heard their demands.
According to MECHA spokesman
Jaime Vela, the demands include
the granting of "unconditional and
immediate control" to MECHIA of
a $5,000 fund allocated to OSSP for
the appointment of a part-time
Chicano advocated, and a guaran-
tee that a full-time advocate be
appointed next year.
But after some bitter exchanges
-one student interrupted Daven-
port several times, telling her to
"quit talking in circles'"'-Johnson
and Davenport reached a tenuous
compromise with the group, agree-
ing to meet next week witih
MECHA representatives and devise
a budget for the $5,000 allotment.
OSSP presently employs two full-
time minority advocates represent-
ing blacks and women, one "half-
time" Native American advocate,
and two "quarter-time" human
sexuality advocates. A committee

Regent Paul Brown (D-Petos-
key), said that he was in favor
of the statement. He said that
it differed from the AACLU con-
cept in that it is tied to the
academic departments r a t h e r
than to the housing office.
Brown said he felt this distinc-
tion would avoid some of the
legal problems that could arise
concerning possible segregation.
Dr. Nellie Varner, director of

the University's Affirmative Ac-
tion Program, commenting on
the proposed racial identification
requirement, said that the re-
quest is still in the discussion
stage and will not be up for final
action by the Regents.
Varner said that the Univer-
sity should require a racial ID

Health, Education and Welfare
and University requirements for
