Minorities
task force
offers plans
By P. E. BAUER
In an effort to increase supportive services for the
University's minority and especially black student popula-
tion, a Task Force on Minority Supportive Services has
submitted to the executive officers eight recommendations,
including a request for strengthening the Opportunity
Program for disadvantaged students.
Three of these recommendations have already been
adopted by the executive officers, amounting to a financial
commitment of $31,500. And Charles Kidd, head of the task
force and assistant 'to the
vice president for student
services, is hopeful that the
Regents will accept the re-Residency

Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON - Student
Government C o u n c i1 (SGC)
member Brad Taylor yesterday
told the House Internal Securi-
ties Committee (HISC) that
participants in the youth and
student conference on a People's
Peace, held in Ann Arbor last
February, were "people who de-
sired a North Vietnamese vic-
tory in Indochina."
0 RISC is holding hearings on
the "radical nature" of groups

of various speakers at the Feb.
5 plenary session of the confer-
ence.
In describing the Friday ple-
nary session, Taylor identified
Brian Spears (Ed '71), who was
then an SGC member as- the
person who placed a Viet Cong
flag on the speaker's lecturn.
Taylor also recounted a tele-
phone message to the conference
from Madame Binh, head of the
Provisional Rpvolutionary Gov-
ernment (PRG) of South Viet-
nam.
Several times during his tes-
timony, Taylor cited leaflets
anid booklets which indicated,
he said, that demonstrations
were planned for May prior to
the conference vote on that sub-
ject.
"No one had any doubt,' Tay-
lor said, "that the May demon-
strations would occur regardless
of whether the conference gave
its stamp of approvaL".
Taylor will continue his testi-
monty today.
The other witness at yester-
day's hearing, Albert Forrester,
an official of YAF, said that the
National S t u d e n t Association
(NSA) had become a "clearing
house organization for the left
in the United States." He called
NSA "unrepresentative" of U.S.
students.
He c i t e d widespread mari-
juana smoking at the 1970 NSA
congress held at MacAlester
College in St. Paul to illustrate
his "unrepresentative" charge.
"I didn't-feel that the massive
use of marijuana at the con-
gress was representative of all
students," he said. "I don't use
marijuana and they certainly
didn't represent me."
A resolution directing NSA to
formulate a "People's Peace
Treaty" in cooperation with
representatives from North and
South Vietnam was passed at
the 1970 congress.
Forrester, who attended the
1970 congress, testified that
NSA members travelled to Hanoi
in December and met with mem-
bers of the South Vietnamese
Student Liberation Front and
North Vietnamese students to
draft the People's Peace Treaty.

At this point in the testimony,
Rep. John Schmitz(It-Calif.)
noted that the NSA delegates to
Hanoi may have violated the
Logan Act when they drafted-
the treaty.
The Logan Act forbids U.S.
citizens f r o m communicating
with foreign governments with
the intention of influencing re-
lations between the two coun-
tries.
Forrester said he did not know
whether the NSA delegates had
dealt with government agents
because the North Vietnamese
signatures were only identified
as "representatives of students
in North Vietnam."

Brad Taylor
which participated in the Wash-
ington anti-war demottstrations
last April and May.
Taylor, a member of Young
Americans for Freedom (YAF).
testified on the individuals and
groups which participated in the
conference. He began by describ-
ing organizations which were
4 distributing literature at the
conference, including the Stu-
dent Mobilization Committee,
the Detroit Committee to End
the War Now, the Ann Arbor
Argus, and the Mayday Tribe.
Taylor introduced as evidence
a leaflet put out by the Mayday
w- Tribe which showed, he testi-
fied, "the Washington Monu-
ment broken off at the top, in-
dicating some type of violent
activity." In the course of his
testimony, he also introduced
buttons,-other leaflets, a supple-
ment to the Argus, an edition
of The Daily, and photographs

cal governments which make de-
cisions directly affecting them.
Voting in their home towns, they
say, is meaningless as what is
done there has little effect on
them.
A change in regulations for
compiling the census has added
new fuel to the ar'gument of stu-
dents that they should be allowed
to vote in their college towns.
Under the new regulations, first
employed in the 1970 census, stu-
dents are counted as residents of
their college town, not their home
town.
Census figures are used in
many determinations relating to
voting, such as the drawing up
congressional districts on both
the state and federal level. Stu-
dents argue if they are to be
counted as constituents of their
college town districts, they should
be allowed to vote in theta.
These census figures are also
used as a basis for determining
the amount of financial aid a city
receives from the state and fed-
eral government.
In Ann Arbor the conflict over
where students can register goes
back several years, with the
charge often being made by stu-
dent radicals that the city ad-
ministration actively bars stu-
dents from registering.
Several years ago a group of
University students filed a court
challenge over what they call

CBS victorious
House Speaker Carl Albert (right) yesterday discusses procedures
with Parliamentarian Lewis Deschler, just before the House voted
to recommit for further study a recommendation by its Commerce
Committee to cite CBS for contempt of Congress. The network had
refused to submit subpoenaed raw material from its documentary,
"The Selling of the Pentagon," (See News Briefs, Page 3.)
