MSU okays abortion

FBI sources dispute Nixon
chargesconcerning break-ins

State University (MSU) Board
of Trustees has approved health
care guidelines allowing the cam-
pus service to perform abortions..
However, the health center will
not become an "abortion mill,"
according to tr. Joseph Patter-
son, chief executive director of
the MSU Health Care Authority.
PATTERSON stressed the de-
cision to perform an abortion will
be up to the physician and the pa-
tient. Student fees will not pay
for abortions--patients will have
to pay for the procedure.
Patterson said physicians now
on the staff at Olin Health Center

are unqualified to perform abor-
tions. Qualified doctors will be
allowed use of the facilities, he
The guidelines, adopted Wed-
nesday, do not authorize abortion
specifically, but state that "all
physicians employed by the uni-
versity shall be free to use their
best professional judgment in the
treatment of patients in conform-
ity with both legal and ethical
Health Service and University
Hospital have both declined to
perform abortions for students.

Two former close associates of

sey Clark, who took office in
1966 under Johnson, said he turn-
ed down several requests from
the late FBI chief J. Edgar
Hoover for permission to break
into a foreign mission in New
York to obtain some material
wanted by a no t h e r security
agency. He said Hoover didn't
ask him about that sort of thing
again. This was in late 1966 or
early 1967, Clark said, about the
time that Nixon says the break-
ins stopped.
Former Atty. Gen. Herbert
Brownell, who s e r v e d under
Eisenhower, declined to comment

Trony violates state
damage deposit law

(Continued from Page 1)
None of the tenants seemed to
know about the new law and
were amazed to find out the al-
leged rate of damage deposits
swas unlawfuil.
'Until now Trony has been a
pretty straight outfit," a tenant
said. Most of the other renters
felts the company had generally
been fair in its dealings.
"THEY'RE GOOD landlords,"
another added. "They will break
the rules for you."
Hoffman pointed out his com-
pany has tried to "build up a
rapport" with the tenants be-
cause "we don't want a day's
vacancy in our apartments." He
further explained that the own-
ers of Trony have at least a par-
tial financial interest in all the
buildings they manage.

Because the law sets no crim-
inal penalties for violation, ten-
ants must initiate civil law suits
in order to recover the apparent-
ly illegal damage deposits.
IN THIS AREA no such suits
have been filed, perhaps because
most tenants seem unaware of
the statute.
The provisions of the law are
listed in "The Rights and Duties
of a Tenant" a leaflet published
by the city. Landlords are re-
quired by municipal ordinance to
give tenants copies after sign-
ing leases.
Trony has complied with the
ordinance, but the tenants of-
ten neglected to read the book-
let or did not take it when it was
offered. "I didn't want the thin,
so I refused it," one Trony tn-
ant said.
