Party leaders hope Ford
will bring country together

Esch calls for continued
impeachment proceedings

WASHINGTON AP) - Congres-
sional leaders of both parties
said last night they hope Presi-
dent Nixon's resignation will
lead the nation out of the ag-
ony of Watergate and into an
era of national reconciliation
under the presidency of Gerald
Ford.
They universally praised Ford
and pledged wholehearted sup-
port as he begins his new ad-
ministration.

Many Republicans and some

House and Senate races.
And some said the change of

Ford as the candidate - in
the 1976 elections.

Assistant Senate Democratic
leader Robert Byrd of West Vir-
ginia said Nixon's speech left
many unanswered questions and
"they may always be unans-
oered.
"You have a new (gan going
in and I think the natural reac-
tion of the people in both par-
ties is going to be to join and
support him in his efforts to
unify the country," Byrd said.
I should think it would have
a good impact on Republicans
all over the country."
Assistant Senate Republican
leader Robert Griffin of Mich-
igan, who called for Nixon to
resign early in the week, called
Nixon's decision both agoniz-
ing and courageous.
"If we unite now, behind our
new President, giving him our
help and our prayers, the re-
public will emerge from this
wrenching experience, stronger
than ever."

By JEFF DAY
special To The Daily
WASINGTON - ('ongress -
man Marvin Esch (R-Antt Ar-
bor) called for the contituation
of impeachment proceedings
against Richard Nixon, despite
the President's announcement
that he will resign from office.
"We are going to get a report
from the House Judiciary Com-
mittee and I'm in favor of let-
ting those who want to testify
since the public is entitled to
know w h a t the commtitee
has found out," he said.
BUT HE also expressed doubt
that Congress should continue
alt the way to the Senate.
"In many ways, Congress
should continue the impeach-
ment process viewed in the
long-range historical precedent
that resignation sets. But in
the short range, resignation gets
us over a period of distress
and we can move ahead on the
country's problems."
Esch doubted that it would
be within the powers of Con-
gress to grant immunity to
Nixon.

THE FORD presidency will
do mitch to bring the country,
which has been divided by the
Wtergate constrtsersy for two
years, hack together, according
to Esch.
"The most important thing
we can do now is rid ourselves
of the adversary relationship
which has grown up 'etween
Congress and the White louse,.
And that of course is Jerry
Ford's strongest trait," he said,
IHis personal favorites for the
vice presidency which will be
left open by Ford's elevation to
office are former New York
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and
ex-attorney General Elliot Rich-
ardson.
BUT, ESCli said he would
also look with favor on a vice
presidencs held by G e o r g e
Bush, the Reptblican national
chairman or Melvin laird, ex-
Secretary of Defense.

YU OWE IT TO

to look into
"The Tower's Better Way of Life"
The University Towers is designed with
the comforts of the student in mind. At
t .' the Towers you don't have the hossel
that many people have experienced with
landlords. You have more time to devote
to studies, and members and activities
of society that interest you. Life is com-
y sO ..v'M pl uticated enough, why complicate it more
I £ by not living here?
a ?" . WHAT IS THIS BETTER
4i 2WAY OF LIFE?
E , a Location-The Towers are ideally lo-
cated being two blocks from West
Engineering.
Individual Leases - Which means you
are responsible for only your pot-
tion of the rent. Many times three
or more people will rent a house
together and something always
happens, it might be getting mar-
ried, dropping out of school, or
not having enough money, in any
case the remaining roommates have to find a new roommate or pay a higher rent.
8 Month Lease-You rent the apartment for the time most people are in school, and
you're not stuck trying to find someone to rent it to in the summer.
Maid Service-Once a week a maid comes in to clean the place up. Which consists of
vacuuming, mopping, and dusting.
Maintenance Crews-We have a full staff to correct, and make any necessary repairs.
You can't appreciate this to its fullest extent until you have experienced the hassel
of trying to get a landlord to make needed repairs.
Tight Security-There is a security guard on duty at night, and the front door is always
locked. Visitors can buss you from the lobby, and you can talk to them and unlock
the door from your room.
Recreation Room-Pool tables, ping pong tables, and snacks.
Pool-Go for a dip in between classes in our heated swimming pool.
Special Rooms-Study room, piano room, laundry room, lounge with a color T.V. We
also show popular movies.
Only $50.00 deposit-Which is given back when you move. No parent or guaranity
signature required.
Kitchen-Eat what and when you want to. Students who have lived in the dorm know
what it's like not having breakfast on the day of a big exam, and having thirteen
regulated meals a week. At the Towers you eat what and when you want to.
With aal these conveniences it would seem that the Towers would be very expensive to live in.
However this is not the case. Check our prices and what we hove to offer with the other
available Ann Arbor housing. Come in and look at the various different apartments we have.
We'll be glad to see you, and you'll be glad you did
