GEG weakens demands

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Former Presidential ad-
viser John Ehrlichman went to jail voluntarily yester-
day to begin sentences related to his role in the Wa-
tergate cover-up.
Rather than await the outcome of appeals to the
Supreme Court, Ehrlichman applied for and received
permission to begin serving sentences of up to eight
years for Watergate-related crimes.
HE WAS GIVEN until Monday to report to the Swift Trail
federal work camp - a minimum security prison at Safford,
Arizona - but chose instead to report to prison immediately.
By not waiting for the Supreme Court review, Ehrlichman



contract issues

The Graduate Employe Or-
ganization (GEO) yesterday
brought major concessions on
economics and class size to
their contract talks with the
University, a move which both
sides treated as the beginnings
of an indication that a strike
can be avoided next month.
The union reduced their origi-
nal demand that a 6.5 per cent
pay increase be coupled with
a 50 per cent tuition cut in 1976-
77 and a total tuition waiver
the next year. Their new re-
quest asks for a four per cent
salary hike with a 25 per cent
decrease in tuition the first year
and a 50 per cent cut the sec-
ond year.
er John Forsyth said he is "cau-
tiously optimistic" about the
prospects of a settlement be-
fore GEO's critical Monday
night membership meeting. His
reaction, he said, is based on
indications from GEO that re-
vised language in at least some
if not all of their proposals is
While the University, in re-
cent weeks, has repeatedly
stated it would not budge from
its positions on such issues as
class size, affirmative action,
non-discrimination in hiring and
definition ofresearchhand stu-
dent assistants (RA's and SA's),
yesterday those sentiments
seemed to have shifted.
"There's room for considera-
tion of their concerns," said
Forsyth explaining the union
may still come up with "cre-
ative solutions" to major prob-
position's apparent attitude

Moran said, "There's plenty

day (to reach an agreement) if
they're ready to deal." But he

added, "It's hopeful but our
hopes have been dashed be-
That tinge of GEO skepticism
rides on the fact that Forsyth
maintains his colleagues will not
compromise on economic mat-
ters and still refuse on principle
to include in the contract cer-

Nevertheless, GEO said they
plan to present the Administra-
tion today with a slashed eco-

What do you say to a thirty-
foot stack of dodecahedrons?
Thousands of students were fac-
ed with that question yesterday
as they walked out of afternoon
classes and saw an enormous
assemblage of wood beams,
canvas and steel joints perch-
ed at the north end of the Diag.
Was it a mirage? Was it a
sacrifice to the gods, left out-
side the walls of the Graduate
Libraryas tribute? More than
one student walking by the con-
trantion could only exclaim:
"What is that thing?"
no Greeks have emerged from
the belly of the thing to put our
campus to the sword, and now
the story can be told. The pyra-
mid - shaped structure, 29 feet
high by 40 feet wide, is a sculp-
ture erected on the Diag to
commemorate Homecoming,

versary of the University's Col-

SPECIAL GEO bargainer on
economics, Bob Milbrath called
GEO's new tuition cut proposal
significant since it costs the
University less because some
tuition is paid by grants and
the University only pays the dif-
ference between the grants and
the (calculated tuitions)."
But it is doubtful the Univer-

sity will appreciate any of those
considerations because admin-
istrators say they already know
the terms they will accept.
"The final economic package
has to amount to (only a) five
per cent (increase)," or a 3.2
per cent increase in pay and
a freeze at last year's tuition
rate amounting to the equivalent
of a 9.7 per cent tuition decrease

administration to date - to be
His lawyer said he will con-
tinue to fight for reversal of
Ehrlichman's two Watergate
convictions in the high court.
Unless the prison time is re-
duced later throughtapplication
to the sentencing judges, Ehr-
lichman must serve a minimum
of 21 years before he becomes
eligible for parole.
JOHN HADDIN, administrator
of the prison camp, said Ehr-
lichman "doesn't want any com-
munication except from his fam-
ily and attorneys."
The balding, portly Ehrlich-
man entered the camp at 12:30
p.m. (EDT), about an hour aft-
er the judges in Washington or-
dered him to report there by
noon Nov. 1. His lawyer had
made the -request for immedi-
ate imprisonment about 9:30
a.m. and he said Ehrlichman,
who obviously was awaiting
word in Arizona, seemed in
good spirits.
Ehrlichman, Nixon's domestic
counselor and his No. 2 aide,
was convicted and sentenced in
both the so-called White House
"pl'imbers" case and in the Wa-
tergate cover-up. His appeal to
the U.S. Court of Appeals was
rejected in each case.
Court sources said that the
lawyer, Stuart Stiller, walked
into the judges' office yester-
day morning, without any ad-
vance notice, and said Ehrlich-
man wanted to begin his sen-
Since he moved out of his

President Ford yesterday an-
nounced a basic shift in Amer-
ica's nuclear philosophy in a new
attempt to prevent the diversion
of peaceful nuclear material for
The President disclosed his
move ' while campaigning in
Ohio, but soecific details were
issued in Washington in what
the White House described as a
major policy statement.
IN THE statement. Ford said
he had decided the U.S. should
not proceed with the "commer-
cialization" of nuclear repro-
cessing - the extraction of
weapons-grade plutonium from
spent nuclear fuel - until ways
were found to prevent the use
of reprocessing equipment to
manufacture nuclear weapons.
He also called on all nuclear-
exoorting nations to exercise
"maximum restraint" in their
exports of sensitive technology
to other countries for at least
the next three years.
U.S. officials said, however,
that Ford's statement would
have no effect on the French
sale of nuclear reprocessing
equipment to Pakistan, or West
Germany's sale of similar fa-
cilities to Brazil.
FORD ALSO said he was serv-
ing notice that the U.S. would
cut off all supplies of nuclear

ing and the intramural building on Hoover Street.

days might do the trick, as students living throughout the city
may attend other public clinics," assistant director Richard Yar-
main explained.

and at Briarwood Mall from 4 p.m.-8 p.m.

Impact aid is a federal program that pro-

from the Washington D. C. area to California, this
area receives most of the aid.
