THE REPORT concludes that Nixon
directed the Watergate cover-up, abused
his powers by authorizing illegal wire-
taps and interfering with executive ag-
encies and attempted to undermine the
impeachment process by defying sub-
poenas for evidence.
The report had been intended to serve
as the crux of House debate on im-
peachment, but N i x o n resigned on
Ang. 9.
The 523-page report includes a de-
scription of the June 17, 1972 break-in
at Democratic headquarters in the
Watergate, the subsequent cover-up and
specific acts pointing to Nixon's involve-
ment, which forms the basis for the first
AP Photo article of impeachment.

Regent Gertrude Huebner (R-Bloom-
field Hills) who has consistently cham-
pioned student causes throughout her
eight year tenure, yesterday told The
Daily she would not seek re-election this
"I've spent eight years traveling
around and now I would like to spend
some time with my husband and let him
do his thing," she explained. "He will
be doing a lot of traveling in the future
and wants me to go along." Her husband
is director of research at Chrysler.
AFTER SERVING on the University's
ruling body through one of the most tu-
multous periods of student unrest, Hueb-

Hubner vehemently maintains that she
has always voted by her conscience and
never by party lines.
FREQUENTLY siding with students
in disputes with the University adminis-

sues as co-ed residence halls, the estab-
lishment of a student-run, co-operative
bookstore, and negotiating with protest-
ers during the 1970 BAM strike. She was
also the only Regent to vote against the
University accepting classified research
contracts from the government.
"I've lost a little sleep and gained a
little weight," she said. "But I've voted

ways been treated like one of the guys,"

Before being elected to th
Regents in 1966, Huebner wo
