Supreme Court action
New residencystatutes anticipated
By DAVID BURHENN
The University's principal resi-
dency rule for out-of-state students
was effectively declared invalid
yesterday by an action of the U. S.
The justices dissolved a lower
court decision upholding University
of North Carolina residency rules-
regulations identical to those, in
forceatthe University of Michigan.
- -THE REQUIREMENT in question stipu-
lates that out-of-state students desiring
residency and lower- in-state tuition rates
usut take no more than three credit hours
of class while living in the state for six
Because of the Supreme Court ruling
and previous judicial action, it appears
likely that further appeal of Circuit Court
Judge William Ager's May decision to
strike down the University's regulations
The fiscal consequences for the Univer-
sity in this matter could run into untold
millions of dollars.
THE SUPREME COURT did not directly
invalidate the North Carolina rule.
Instead the justices ordered the matter
back to the state court for a new judge-
ment, in light of a high court decision
handed down last week. At that time, the
court struck down Connecticut's student
residency law because it violated the due
process clause of the Constitution.
The roundabout method of decision on
the part of the justices surprised some ob-
servers, but most feel the net effect of the
ruling is still to disallow the residency

WASHINGTON - President Nixon and
Soviet Communist Party leader Leonid
Brezhnev began their summit conference
yesterday with mutual pledges to build
world peace. They ended their day by ex-
tolling new ties between the United States
and the Soviet Union.
"We have laid ,the groundwork for a
significant improvement in our relations,"
the President said in an exchange of toasts
with Brezhnev at a black-tie dinner at the
Meanwhile, assorted demonstrations pro-
tested Brezhnev's visit. At least 20 people
NIXON AND BREZHNEV began the
week of summit talks by discussing world
problems for nearly four hours.
Working through the lunch hour, the two
leaders talked "on a philosophical plane"
about maintaining the momentum estab-

Brezhnev in his toast reassured other
nations, apparently including China, that
they would not suffer in the growing de-

"IT IS ABSOLUTELY CLEAR to any-
one who is at least slightly familiar with
the course of events and with the nature
ot development with Soviet-American re-
lations, that their improvement in no way
prejudices the interest of any third coun-
try," he said.
Today, the summit talks will move to
specific items, with a discussion of im-
proved trade between the two countries.
The conference was protested by at least
four separate groups.
DEMONSTRATORS near the Soviet Em-
bassy, which has been under a heavy
security detail, protested the treatment of
Jews in the Soviet Union.
Police said 17 persons were arrested at
the Embassy and charged with violating
a regulation prohibiting demonstrations
within 500 feet of an embassy.
Three men were arrested at another
demonstration near the White House where
Brezhnev was being greeted by Nixon.
They were charged with disorderly con-
APPROXIMATELY 200 persons marched
near the Washington Monument to protest
agreements between the U.S. and Russia.
A demonstration at the State Depart-
ment by about 100 American artists, most
of them young ballet dancers, protested the
appearance of Soviet artists in America.
A report of the summit talks was given
later to newsmen by Ronald Ziegler, the
White House press secretary, and Leonid
Zamyatin, general director of Tass, the
Soviet news agency.
ONE ITEM not raised was Soviet re-
strictions on the emigration of Jews and
other minorities. Zamyatin told a reporter
that even asking about Soviet emigration
policies was "tantamount to interfering in
the domestic affairs of another country."
Ziegler, for his part, reiterated the Nix-
on administration policy against public
discussion of the emigration problem.
Nixon and Brezhnev spent an hour alone,
except for a translator, and then were
joined by others, including Secretary of
State William Rogers, ,national security
adviser Henry Kissinger, Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko and Soviet Am-
bassador Anatoly Dobrynin.
