b clears SAB
offices for use
by adiiation

By REBECCA WARNER
Many University students, especially
those who realize the Student Activities
Building (SAB) was built on a student fee
assessment, labor under the impression
that the SAB belongs to the student body
forever.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, by the end of the summer, ac-
cording to plan, all but a few corners of
the SAB will have been remodelled and
taken over by administrative offices.
The large majority of the 20 to 30 stu-
dent organizations now h o 1 d i n g office
space in the SAB will be relocated in the
Union.
Advocates of the switch predict that
eventually the old SAB will be completely
empty of student groups, and claim that
relocation in the Union will foster a spirit
of "togetherness."
In vie w of the c o m i n g relocation,
Tenants Union (TU) member David Raaf-
laub has called the student fee funding
of the SAB "misrepresentation or even
fraud" by the University.
Raaflaub says the University "touted

the building as for students and student
activities and got the money on that pre-
text."
But since the completion of a finance
plan for the SAB, which used a 15 year
student fee assessment to pay back a' $1.7
million construction loan, University offi-
cials have been negotiating the conver-
sion of the building to administrative use.
"Grave errors have been made by stu-
dents based on the idea that because the
word 'student' precedes the word 'fee,'
that implies student control," remarks
Housing Director John Feldkamp.
The Housing administration offices will
take over the first floor SAB space now
filled by student organizations.
The TU and several other organizations
housed on the first floor of the SAB say
they consulted two local law firms regard-
ing possible legal resistance to the relo-
cation. Raaflaub described the response
as "pessimistic" although he reserved an
"outside possibility" of legal action.
Other organizations say the high cost of
a suit against the University was pro-
hibitive.

THE FINISHING touches on the agree-
ment, which contains guidelines for the
now-recessed SALT II talks in Geneva,
were reached by Nixon and Brezhnev in
summit conferences held at the Presiden-
tial mountain retreat here.
THE AGREEMENT could rival in im-
portance the accord reached in Moscow
last spring when Nixon and Brezhnev
held their first summit. Those talks pro-
duced permanent limits on some nuclear
defensive weapons and a temporary limit-
ed ban on some offensive weapons.
It was understood the new guidelines
reached here were mostly general in na-
ture. But they are intended to accelerate
the suspended technical talks covering
such complex systems as multi-targeted
missile warheads.
The document would not be a treaty,
but is considered essential to get the
stalled Geneva talks moving again.
A COMPANION PACT would pool U.S.
and Soviet research in the field of peace-
ful uses of nuclear energy, including fast-
breeder reactors and controlled explosions.
Nixon and Brezhnev met late last night
and planned to reconvene today.
Spokesmen said Nixon and Brezhnev
had expanded their discussions to include
the forthcoming Helsinki conference on
European security and prospects for a
-mutual reduction in the military forces
maintained in Europe by the United
States and the Soviet Union.
THE TWO LEADERS met under tight
security. Helmeted Marines in combat
green lined theaelectrified barbed wire
double fences that line the 143-acre presi-
dential retreat.
In a brief break, Brezhnev performed
again for photographers, this time wearing
a blue windbreaker with a Camp David
seal and his name on it. "It's all the
President's doing," he said. "He gave it
to me."
Growing serious, the Soviet leader said
of the summit generally, "The results wilt
be good without question. The talks are in

Brezhnev met in private with Nixon for
about 15 minutes and told newsmen who
asked about the talks, "They have started
well."

rThe tactics
of Lenin
By The Associated Press
Ideologically speaking, Leonid Brezhnev
is beyond reproach in his venture into
the wilds of capitalism. He is, carrying
out to the letter the strategy of V. L
Lenin.
While that doesn't seem to raise many
eyebrows on this side of the water, it
does pose a question of just how much
things have changed in the Soviet atti-
tude toward the United States.
IN 1920 when newly established Soviet
Russia - it was not yet the Soviet Union
- was in desperate need of help out of its
enormous economic troubles, the founder
of Bolshevism,' Vladimir Lenin, had this
to say:
"Let the American capitalists not dis-
turb us. We shall not disturb them. We
are ready even to pay them with gold for
machinery, tools and so forth, which are
of use to transport and production; and
not only with gold, but also with raw ma-
terials."
Now, 53 years later, Lenin's successor
casts an eye at U.S. capitalism as a
source for the wherewithal to cure Soviet
economic ills. In effect, he is saying:
"Okay, capitalists, let's trade. We want
machines and tools and so forth, and
we can pay for them with raw materials;
