Major sources in the State
Department said yesterday that
there is no prospect that formal
diplomatic relations between the
United States and the People's
Republic of China will be es-
tablished prior to the Nixon
trip, and there is no certainty
they will necessarily result from
the visit.
However, sources said. the
State Department will announce
in the very near future a re-
vised U.S. policy toward China's
long-standing bid for admission
to the United Nations.
Asked how the Vietnam prob-
leni fits into discussions in Pe-

"Well, obviouslywhen coun-

concerns of the United States

China alter their relationship, it

And although Nixon had said
he would announce along about

Nations-without sacrificing the
membership of Taiwan - this

Though the Ofice of Student
Services Housing Policy Board
last month scrapped its own
rules barring cohabitation in
University residence halls, Uni-
versity officials say they will
continue to enforce a ruling
barring premarital sexual inter-
course in the dormitories.
Vice President for Student
Services Robert Knauss issued
a statement Wednesday reiterat-
ing the University ban on co-
habitation and promising vigi-
lant action against such prac-
Knauss denied in his state-
ment that the rule had actually
been abolished, stating that
when the housing board noticed
that behaviour such as stealing,
deviant behaviour, extortion and
assault were not mentioned in
the rules, "the . . . committee
thought it appropriate to delete
a specific mention of cohabita-
"The housing office . . . has
an obligation under Michigai
law to refuse to allow lewd and
lascivious behaviour in its fa-
cilities," Knauss noted.
Jerry DeGrieck, the former
h Iousing policy board member
who introduced the resolution
wiping out the ban in the rules,
vehemently disagrees w it h
Knauss' interpretation of the
situation, however.
Also, he says, "Neither the
University nor the housing of-
fice should condone, endorse.
frown upon or have any other
attitude or policy toward the
sexual practices of consenting
University students.
"For the University to do so'
would be the antithesis of a free
and enlightened University," De-
Grieck says, warning that to en-
force any anti-cohabitation rule
would necessitate the establish-
ment of a "police and spy sys-
tem within the residence halls.
At yesterday's meeting of the
Regents, Regent Robert Brown
(R-Kalamazoo) said that De-

Grieck's widely publicized state-
ment that the old rule "has nev-
er been enforced and cannot be
eniorced," would, if it were a
view held by other members of
the board, indicate that "we're
in serious trouble."
President Fleming assured
Brown that the University
would "enforce (the cohabita-
tion ban) to the best of our
ability," butaBrown nevertheless
asked for an investigation by

nainder of the housiing board's

Taylor's testimony draws ire

Student reaction to the testimony this week
before the House Internal Security Commit-
tee of Student Government Council memberY
Brad Taylor ranged from, "he was only doing
his duty," to "he is betraying the student body."
Taylor testified for two days about the
Student and Youth Conference on a People's
Peace, held at the University last spring to map
out plans for last May's anti-war demonstra-
tions in Washington,
Some student critics of Taylor have even
charged that he lied during his testimony to the
committee this week.
During his first day of testimony, Taylor
identified Brian Spears, who chaired several,
sessions of the conference, as the person who
placed a Vietcong flag on the speakers platform
at the conference plenary session.
Spears told The Daily that he did not place
the flag on the platform.
Taylor claims he attended the conference

as a representative of the "Free Campus News
Service," a branch of the Young Americans for
Freedom, an organization of which Taylor is a
SGC administrative vice-president Jay Hack
said that Taylor told him "on three occasions"
that he did not attend the conference.
Hack said that Taylor's testimony describing
an alleged "disruption" of the conference was
false, "no groups really disrupted the con-
"In response to Taylor's assertion that Robert
Williams was 'heavily booed' during a speech
he gave at the conference, I would say that
Williams received a standing ovation at the
conclusion of his speech."
Jerry DeGrieck, former SGC executive vice-
president, lashed out at Taylor, stating that
during his campaign for SGC he had "given
no indication that he would play the role
of a spy for MISC."
