Money was the thing that

done it otherwise," said Dean

four year scholarship totaling
$12,000.
In addition to offering scholar- "

"see the world", the campus
ROTC branch gives entering
freshmen a chance to look over
its various programs every Mon- 9
day through Thursday at 3:30 in
North Hall.
Attendance for these sessions

from zero to over ten persons
At yesterday's session six of the i
eight persons present were en-
rolled in the College of Engi-
neering.
Instructors of military science
(who are commissioned officers
of the Army, Navy, and A i r
Force) conduct the information
sessions

N. Viets push
to Hi*ghwvay1

By The AEria'Ited Press
North Vietnamese forces out-
flanked Saigon troops yesterday
in Quang Tri Province and
threatened to cut their Highway
1 supply line to the south.
Infantrymen responsible for
highway security behind the ad-
vancing units battled a 200-300
person North Vietnamese force
with heavy fire support from
tanks and U.S. Phantom jets.
Some communist troops were re-
ported only 200 yards from the
highway.
AP photographer K o i e h i r o
Morita reported from the front
that repeated Phantom strikes
sent shrapnel skittering across
the highway and forced the
South Vietnamese soldiers to
take cover in their trenches.
Meanwhile in Washington.
President Nixon's official spokes-
person said yesterday he has
seen "no evidence of any bomb-
ing of schools or 'homes" in
North Vietnam by U.S. aircraft.
Press secretary Ronald Zeigler
added he had seen no evidence
of "any extensive or massive
damage to dams and dikes"
which Nixon has ruled off-limits
to American bombers.
Zeigler was questioned about
a report from Hanoi by syndi-
cated columnist Joseph Kraft.
who reported seeing bombed out
homes and schools during a visit
there. Kraft also wrote he had
seen "two undoubted examples"
of bomb hits on dikes.
In Paris yesterday, a North
Vietnamese off i cial1indicated
that Henry Kissinger brought no
basic change in the U.S. posi-
tion to his recent secret talk"
with Le Due Tho, member of
the North Vietnamese politburo.
Asked if President Nixon's na-
tional security adviser had offer-
ed anything new during the 6%
hour session Wednesday, Hanoi
spokesperson Nguyen Thanh Le
flatly replied, "The Nixon ad-
ministration has persisted up to
now in its position of aggression
and neocolonialism."
In the air war yesterday, the
U.S. Navy disclosed that Marine
helicopters are being used for
the first time in the war against
North Vietnamese water craft

trying to unload supplies from
Chinese freighters.
U.S. jets ranged widely Wed-
nesday over North Vietnam,
beaming laser bombs into three
MIG bases and striking rail lines
within 40 miles of the Chinese
border.
Air Force F4 Phantoms drop-
ped 2,000 pound laser bombs on
the Cao Nung railroad bridge,
40 miles from the Chinese
border.

Witll seconds to spare. an
Ann Arbor police officer defused
a live 18-inch bomb discovered
at the door of the Army recruit-
ing Station early yesterday
mornitg.
According to police Chief
Walter Krasny, Sergeant Daniel
Cullin tore the bomb's rapidly
burning fuse off only a minute
before the bomb would ignite.
Police said the bomb con-
tained about 29 ounces of ex-
plosive powder and "could have
done substantial damage" had
it exploded.
According to Krasny, an un-
identified passerby sin e 11 e d
smoke near the 212 So. Fourth
St. recruiting station and dis-
covered the bomb at about 2:55
a.m. yesterday. The person ratn
to a nearby psatrol car and police
quickly closed off the surround-
ing area to pedestrians and
traffic.
Cullin, who was acting com-
mand officer in the area, arrived
moments later as the bomb's
fuse continued to burn quickly.
The bomb was wrapped in a
paper bag and lay less than
two feet from the recruiting
station's door.
Cullin, who is not a demoli-
tions expert, chose to pull out
the live fuse and succeeded.
Police determined later that

OBien to
head Dem
campaign
WASHINGTON ()--Democra-
tic presidential nominee George
McGovern yesterday named for-
mer Democratic National Chair-
man Lawrence O'Brien to be his
national campaign chairperson.
O'Brien will be given a role
concerned with unifying the
support of Democrats and other
"concerned Americans."
In an interview, O'Brien em-
phasized that while he will hold
the title of national campaign
chairperson his role will be es-
sentially separate ft-em the
existing McGovern political or-
ganization.
McGovern told a news con-
ference O'Brien will "be a fore-
most consultant on the over-
all policy and strategy of my
campaign."
He described his campaign
hierarchy as a three-way split
among O'Brien and McGovern's
previous campaign chiefs, Frank
Mankiewicz and Gary Hart.
One McGovern aide privately
summed up O'Brien's role as
"out link to the party establish-
ment."
O'Brien said he will establish
a separate headquarters for his
operation in Washington within
the next 48 hours.
McGovern said O'Brien will
be his liaison with Democrats in
Congress, Democratic governors,
mayors and state legislative
leaders.
He said O'Brien will also be
his chief contact with officials
of organized labor,
The senator said he has se-
cured the support of Sen. Hu-
bert Humphrey (D-Minn.) for
the O'Brien appointment. He
said he expects Humphrey and
the other former Democratic
presidential contenders not only
to endorse his candidacy but
campaign vigorously for it.
