Nixon sends Connally on month Court rejects
long worldwide economics trip suit to block
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (I1) -
President Nixon is sending out-
going Treasury Secretary J o h n
Connally on a 15-nation, month-
long tour beginning today to
discuss international economic
matters and "any subject which
his hosts wish to raise," t h e
White House announced yester-
Connally, however, will not go
to North Vietnam to negotiate
for the release of prisoners of
war as was suggested by Sen.
Hubert Humphrey in the.-Demo-
cratic presidential candidates'
debate last Sunday in California.
He will travel to South Amer-
ica, the Far East, South Asia
Details of the trip are not firm,
said Ronald Ziegler, presidential
press secretary, but Connally
will go first to Venezuela a n d
then to Colombia, Brazil, Argen-
tina, Bolivia and Peru between
June 6 and June 14 on the first
leg of his journey.
Ziegler declined to give t he
names of the other countries on
the itinerary but said it could
be expected that Connally would
go to India and Pakistan and
he would not rule out South
Vietnam nor Bangladesh.
He said flatly that Connally
would not travel to Africa, cit-
ing recent visits by Mrs. Nixon
and Secretary of State William
Ziegler said Connally, travel-
ing as a special representative
of the President, will "meet
with chiefs of state and heads
of government in various n a -.
tions for discussion on matters
of common concern, with em-
phasis on current international
He also said Connally would
be in a position to- "respond to
and discuss developments in the
international field with refer-
ence to the President's recent
trip to Peking and Moscow."
Ziegler said Connally c o u 1 d
raise topics of discussion with
the leaders but declined to say
what they will be.
Connally, the Texas Demo-
crat who many believe us a y
become Nixon's choice of a rn-
ning mate later this year, was
summoned to the President's
Florida home yesterday for a
predeparture conference w i t h
Nixon and a briefing by Henry
Kissinger, Nixon's national se-
-new program policy-
and JUNE schedule
Some recent financial reverses-particularly the forced cancellation of concerts-have brought us to a serious review of our
general programming policy, and steps toward redfining our definition of our role.
Despite our status as a recognized student-community organization, it seems we have always worked at the edge of the
"University community," as defined by the Administration, the Daily, SGC, etc. Certainly we have never enjoyed the -more or
less automatic support of a Cinema Guild, UAC-Daystar, etc. What support and success we have enjoyed have always come
following our own preferences, without camping or compromise.
So we have decided to follow that line of programming forthrightly: adult, "non-Hollywood (or at least current Hollywood),
thoughtful . . . AND sensual. And price our shows as low as possible, but responsibly. If only 200 people want to see a given
film, they should be able to see it, but they should pay, insofar as they can afford to, its costs: whether that is $1, $1.25, $1.50
or even $2.00.
Taking the freedom to price responsibly will, hopefully, enable us to serve you better. Can you dig it? . . . with free
cider, coffee, always?

LANSING (t) - The city may
operate its "Dial-a-Ride" bus
transportation system despite
complaints by two taxicab com-
panies, the state Appeals Court
Veteran Cab Owners Associa-
tion, Inc., and Yellow Cab Co..
filed suit to stop the experimen-
tal mini-bus transit system,
claiming "Dial-a-Ride" denied
them due process and equal
protection of law. Taxicab li-
censes gave them those rights,
the plaintiffs claimed.
However, the court said that
taxicab licenses "are nothing
more than a privilege to do
what is prohibited without such
The court ruled that the city
"has reasonable control of its
streets" And that taxicabs
"have no right to use the streets
without the consent of the city."
The suit was filed against
Ann Arbor, the Ann Arbor
Transportation Authority and
Ford Motor Co. in Washtenaw
County Circuit Court Aug. 26,
1971. The case was -appealed
last October when the lower
court upheld the city's right to
use the system.
"Dial-a-Ride" was begun last
Septembersin what city offic-
isis said was an effort to curb
traffic congestion and pollution.

by gardener Rhobe Crots.
The gardens contain one of
the largest collections of brome-
liads in North America.
The plants were displayed by
McWilliams, who also presented
