Rejection raises cotroversy

over move
While President N i x o n denounced the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee's re-
jection of G. McMurtie Godley's appoint-
ment as assistant secretarv of state for
far eastern affairs, University faculty
members and local Asian scholars rester-
day expressed approval for the decision.
"I think this is a very proper decision
in view of his responsibility for the secret
war in Laos and the creation of 700,0(J)
Laotian refugees," said political science
Prof. Alien Whiting. Whiting worked in the
Asian affairs branch of the state depart-
ment during the Kennedy and Johnson
administrations and is widely acknowl-
edged as an expert on China.

Killer found
The accused k i I e r of a Washtenaw
County sheriff's deputy several years ago
has been discovered serving an eight-year
sentence for robbery in a London, England
prison. A. J. Simpson, a 39-year-old native
of Pontiac with a lengthy criminal record,
is accused of killing Sheriff's D e p u t y
Frank Crampton with a knife in mid-Janu-
ary 1971 while being transferred to Jack-
son State Prison from the county jail.
Officials in Washington say the extradi-
tion process has begun but could take
months or even years to complete.
Transportation boom
Railroad commuter service between Ann
Arbor and Detroit may take a great leap
forward if a $1.4 million State Highway
Commission proposal succeeds in attract-
ing about four times that much in federal
matching grants. Under the plan the cur-
rent once-a-day, week-days only service
would be expanded to eight runs every
weekday and four every Saturday, Sunday,
and holiday. Stops would include the De-
troit riverfront, Tiger Stadium, the Cadil-
lac Motor Co., the Ford Rouge Plant,
Fairlane, Dearborn, Inkster, Wayne, Wil-
low Run sirport, Ypsilanti, Geddes Road,
and the city railroad station.

Mostly cloudy, with possible thunder-
showers ending in the afternoon with highs

be in the 60s. No rain is expected on the
weekend but it will be cooler until Mon-

hits Senate
WASHINGTON (Ai'- President Nixon
yesterday bitterly deplored rejection by
the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
of his nomination of G. McMurtrie Godley
as assistant secretary of state for east
Asian affairs.
In a statement issued at the White
House the President suggested that God-
ley, former ambassador to Laos, was un-
fairly being made the victim of Senate
displeasure with the administration's for-
eign policy.
"THE CONSEQUENCES of this com-
mittee action go f)r beyond the injustice
done to an outstanding Foreign Service of-
ficer," the White louse said.
"It is not in the interest of the Foreign
Service or the United States that career
officers becoine sirct to retribution for
diligent execution of their instructions."
The rejection of Godlev Wednesday by
a vote of 9 to 7 apparently was the first
decision i this kind by the Foreign Re-
latinis Committee on a key nomination
as - vadisiiatra ti-i-i. The chairman,
Sen, J. W'. llbright (I)-hrk.) who spear-
h:ided the attack, said Godlev showed
too much enthasi-isn for U. S. military
i ot ement in Soitteast Asia.
AT THE SAME TIME, the coimmittee
-pproved by a voe of 12 to three the nom-
ination of William Sllivn, former dep-
atr assistant secrettary for east Asian af-
f irs, to be amhbas 'idor to the Philippines.

firming the nomination without debate or

State House approves
'U' appropriations biIl

LANSING (UPI)-A $382 million budget
bill for Michigan's 13 public colleges and
universities cleared the Michigan house
on a 73-31 vote yesterday.
The House version tops that passed by
the Senate last month by $700,000. A final
spending blueprint for 1973-74 will be
worked out in a joint conference commit-
tee with members from both chambers.
Under the measure, all institutions ex-
cept Michigan State University will re-
ceive an increase over their 1972-73 appro-
priation. MSU's budget was cut from
$93.3 million last year to $89.4 million,
Proposed funding for other colleges and
universities, with last year's appropriation
in parentheses, is as follows:
--University of Michigan including Flint
and Dearborn campuses $97.6 million
($57.6 million). ,
-Central Michigan $18.3 million ($16.8
-Eastern Michigan $22.5 million ($20.8

-Ferris State $13.1 million ($11.6 mil-
-Grand Valley State $7.8 million ($6.6
-Lake Superior State $2.7 million ($2.3
-Michigan Tech $12.2 million ($10.5
-Northern Michigan $11.4 million ($10.2
-Oakland $11.4 million ($10.3 million).
-Saginaw Valley $2.7 million ($2.5 mil-
-Wayne State $61.8 million ($56.3 mil-
-Western Michigan $30 million ($26.8
Passage of the measure is of critical
importance to the University which is
currently facing an extremely tight bud-
getary squeeze. Inflation rates plus the
anticipated loss of revenues stemming
from the new residency rulings have put
the University in a position where large
tuition raises are inevitable.

ground cutting her hand in the process,
grabbed the back collar of her coat and
pulled her coat back off, and also pulled
her hair when she jerked away.
Wredford also maintained that Burns
"kept screaming things like 'Give me that
camera-give me that film,"' during the
course of his assault.
Wredford said when Burns gave her
camera a particularly hard jerk, "the
strap broke and I pulled it free."
Eventually the screams of the other
photographer, also a prisoner of Burns'
powerful grip, attracted spectators from
the courthouse and the melee was abort-
ed. "I don't know what would have hap-
pened if it had been in an isol-Ated area,
however," Ross commented.
At the conclusion of the incident,
though, a confused Chelsea police ser-
geant at first didn't know who to re-
strain, the burly and bearded Burns, a
sergeant for the Michigan State Police
and a member of the Washtenaw Area
Narcotics Team, or the two Sun photog-
raphers. Both sides immediately began to
accuse each other of assault.
Attorneys for Wredford and Ross later
demanded that Burns be prosecuted, but
Washtenaw County Prosecutor William
Delhey declined, on the grounds that
Burns "thought he was doing the right
