Canada. Grannemann blames it,
in large part, on the upheaval-
so fundamental he likens it to
getting religion, in the jarring
fundamentalist sense.

With a chuckle, he remembers
now, how frightened he was at
the border, how clean-shaven
and trimmed of hair-and how
he even wore white socks to look
as conservative as possible.

theless, as he rolled down his
window: "I'm a draft dodger."

And he declines to sit in judg-

who chose to go and fight.

in a second phone call that he'd
gone to the members of his

the most difficult things he'd
ever had to do in his life"-and
gotten their assurance that if
Len would come back quickly all
would be forgiven . . .

Virgil, whom he most painfully
remembers saying flatly: "Come

Wants gas shortage investigated
Sen. Jim Abourezk (D-S.D.) tells a Washington news conference
yesterday he's written a letter to President Nixon calling for an
immediate investigation by the Justice Department of "an ap-
parent anti-trust violation in connection with the present oil and
gas shortage and skyrocketing of prices and profits of the major
oil companies."

ports "partof a careful coordinated strategy . . to prosecute a case
against the President in the press using innuendo, distortion of fact
and outright falsehood."
YESTERDAY, Warren acknowledged the President had conferred
with Dean and said the topics included Nixon's own Watergate inves-
tigation, administration policy on citing executive privilege and hear-
ings on the unsuccessful nomination of L. Patrick Gray to be director
of the FBI.
Asked about Warren's comments on not supplying logs of the
conversations, Cox told newsmen lse has been assured of access to all
documents, files and other papers in the executive branch.
SHOULD THE SENATE continue its televised hearings, Cox said,
it will "make it impossible to get at the truth from bottom to top."
In his letters to Ervin and the other senators, the special pro-
secutor said "the continuation of hearings at this time create grave
danger that the full facts about the Watergate case and related mat-
ters will never come to light= and that many of those who are guilty
of serious wrongdoing will never be brought to justice."
Even before Cox's statement, committee member Herman Tal-
madge, D-Ga., had called suggestions of postponement "presump-
tious in the extreme."
COX SAID his office has expanded its investigation of all illegal
activities in the 1972 presidential campaign beyond the break-in at
the Watergate office building headquarters of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee.
Cox cited these reasons for his belief that public hearings will
" Witnesses often come forward because of fear of heavy prison
sentences, a fear that would be relieved by chances that pretrial pub-
licity at the hearings could forestall successful prosecution.
* Premature disclosure of testimony and investigating leads can
aid others in fabricating explanations, increasing the difficulty of get-
ting truthful information from potential witnesses.

institutions got p o o r e r marks
from the commission.
The commission s a i d educa-
tional justice could be improved
by determined efforts to find
places in colleges for young peo-
ple from low-income and minor-
ity groups-with adequate finan-
cial assistance for their support.
IT ALSO recommended special
efforts be made to find qualified
members of minority groups and
women for consideration for fac-
ulty positions.
The commission viewed higher
education's role in the critical
evaluation of society as "quite
uneven in the past and uncertain
for the future."
It said individual members of
the campus community, but not
the institution or its corporate
bodies, should engage in such
activity. However, the commis-
sion cautioned such individuals
to keep in mind that "they are
not the only people in society
with a right to evaluate society."
THE COMMISSION noticed that
American higher eduscation had
become "heavily 1 o a d e d with
functions" over the years, rang-
ing from providing financial sup-
port for students to advising and
instructing persons and organiza-
tions outside the campus.
The commission said American

that Yosing was picked because of

But conmsittee members refused
to relet se the minutes of the
controversial meeting.
It has since been suggested
that few, if any, of the commit-
tee members have ever heard
Beis Spock speak.
Spock's topic for the counter
commencement will be "society

will be Kay Weiss of Advocates

sponsors say they aim tii keep
the event open to the public and
