ey MERYL GORDON
As students prepare to return
to school this fall, many a r e
bringing sleeping bags, prepared
to storm the streets to find a
place to live.
A classified ad in Tuesday's
Daily for a room to rent brought
hundreds of calls, many v e r y
frantic: "No, it can't already be
rented. What am I going to do?"
Various sources seem to indi-
cate that the houing situation is
going to be very tight this fall.
Even the dorms, which 1 a s t
year had vacancies, are already
filled with a 70-person waiting
list. However, John Finn, direc-
tor of housing information, pre-
dicts that he'll be able to place
the 70 due to "no-shows" in the
He says the trend in housing
has been toward co-ed living, ei-
ther by floor, or by men and
women living in alternate rooms
The 600-person cooperative
housing facilities are also filled,
and a spokesperson from the In-
ter-Cooperative Council (ICC)
said that they have a 170-person
waiting list. The co-op system has
expanded enormously in the past
two years to include 23 houses.

RACINE, Wis. OP) - Sen.
George McGovern yesterday re-
jected White House criticism of
his independent contact wit h
North Vietnamese negotiators in
Paris and said Henry Kissinger's
"highly publicized global junket"
will do more to prolong the war
than shorten it.
The Democratic presidential
nominee, campaigning here dur-
ing a swing through the Mid-
west, reacted to a statement by
White House press secretary Ron-
ald Ziegler that the contact made
by Pierre Salinger with the Hanoi
representatives "could jeopard-
ize" the President's efforts to
achieve a; negotiated settlement
of the war.
"It is ironic that the White
House thinks a brief, middle level
inquiry about the prisoners ,of
war might interfere with nego-
tiations," McGovern said.
He said Nixon has had 3
years to end the war and get
American prisoners back and
hasn't done so.
"The President now has h is
chief foreign policy specialist on
a highly publicized global junket
on the eve of the Republican Na-
tional Convention," the S o u t h
Dakota senator said.
"That is what is interfering
with quiet, serious, professional
negotiations far more than any-
thing else possibly could."
Ziegler emphasized the word
"could", saying the White House
didn't know exactly what had
gone on at the two meetings.
When McGovern first heard of
Ziegler's comment he responded
by saying "Pierre Salinger was
very careful not to do anything
to jeopardize the talks."
WASHINGTON (A) - A ban
against crosstown busing, plus
authority to reopen school-de-
segregation orders all the way
back to 1954 for the busing curb,
was passed by the House early
The vote was 282 to 102.
The revision of President Nix-
on's busing curbs beyond his
request was sent to the Senate
where it is likely to be ignored.
Opponents, including some of
the backers of the President's
original proposal, said the bill
would be struck down by the
Supreme Court as unconstitu-
tional even if the Senate passed
But Rep. Edith Green (D-
Ore,), author of the key amend-
ment adopted by the House, re-
torted: "Waving the Constitution
is the last refuge for those who
have lost their case."
Her amendment would pro-
hibit any desegregation busing
except as a last resort.
The President's proposal as ap-
proved by the House Education
Committee would have permitted
crosstown busing as a last re-
sort for desegregation of junior
high schools and high schools.
The amendment restored the
President's proposal, knocked
out in committee, to permit
schools under court or federally

seek reopening of those orders
for modification to meet the new
busing curb. Most of those
schools are in the South.
