Cox leaving FCC with
doubts about successor
T H E FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
(FCC) is about to lose one of its most ablest and earn-
est members. After serving his seven year term as FCC
commissioner, Kenneth A. Cox will be leaving his posi-
tion with a sense of worry over his rumored successor.
His successor will reportedly be John Snyder, the In-
diana state treasurer. The White House has not denied
the report. What worries Cox is Snyder's inexperience.
Ever since 1968, Cox, a Democrat, knew that he was
not going to be reappointed to his post. He said that'he
only had hoped that his successor would have experience
Snyder, however, has neither experience nor stature.
His major qualification is that he did President Nixon
a political favor by stepping out of the Republican race
for a Senate seat in Indiana.
To Mr. Cox, the belief that his successor may be
chosen for political reasons is appalling. "I'd told people
with access to the White House," Cox said in a recent in-
terview, "that for the sake of the agency and for the
sake of the chairman (Dean Burch, another Nixon ap-
pointee) I hoped they'd get a top-flight man here. They're
supposed to be a big outfit and have a lot of brains. But
this talk about Snyder is distressing."
COX HIMSELF did not come to FCC without political
credentials. He was special counsel to the Senate Com-
merce Committee's television inquiry of 1956 and was con-
sidered somewhat of a protege of the committee's chair-
man, Senator Warren Magnuson (D-Wash.). But at least
he went to the FCC with relevant experience.
In the past, Cox was disliked by the broadcasting in-
dustry because of his interest in issues affecting program-
ming. But the industry is uneasy about the selection of
Snyder because of his inexperience and also because he
tangled with Indiana broadcasters over political issues.
In the future the FCC will have to be a more effective
agency than it has been in the past because of the new
technology that is invading the broadcasting media.
The loss of Commissioner Cox is a shame, but the ap-
pointment of John Snyder to replace him is a travesty.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
MR. VALLANCE painted a very
grim picture of Washtenaw Coun-
ty's educational system in the
years to come. He felt, rightly so,
that for the taxpayers to value ed-
ucation less than the few small
dollars of increased taxation is
criminal. I have two comments:
A group of Washtenaw County
property owners feel that non-
property-owners should not vote
on millage and bonding issues. In
fact, one Republican lady told me
that non-property-owners should
not be allowed to vote an any-
thing! The arguments for this at-
titude are that renters are less
stable segments of our society and
that they do not pay the taxes
that are being levied in such elec-
tions. In fact the renters pay tax-
es through rent payments. And to
the stability argument . . . non-
sense! Students, low-income fam-
ilies, and people who just don't
want the responsibility of owning
property should be represented at
the polls-on all issues including.
the educational systems that will
make or break the society of to-
MY SECOND comment concerns
the Michigan Daily ,whose editor-
ial board is obviously not unaware
of the consequences of the millage
defeat if Harvard Vallance's edi-
torial (Daily, June 9) is any in-
dication Had the Daily seen *fit to
encourage the students on this
campus to vote in the June 8 elec-
tion-had the Daily endorsed the
millage proposals-it is likely that
the younger point of view would
have been better represented at
the polls, Yes, the press has a role
in society other than reporting
news (recall Roger Rapoport?).
There is still a chance to re-
deem the county-another election
is coming on Aug. 4 at which these
millage and bonding issues will,
again be an issue. Washtenaw
County's young people need the
help of their peers who are old
enough to vote. Are you reg-

To the Editor:
THE MIDDLE EAST, with its
daily series of crises, is obviously
no longer an Israeli or an Arab
question; since the United States
is unlikely to stand by idly as one
side or the other is wiped out; I
feel that it is my business to ex-
plore what is going on over there.
However, certain specific questions
pop into the mind of even the most
With whom should the Israelis
negotiate? Nasser, Al Fatah or
what? Can the Israelis really be
expected to do the Arabs the favor
of liquidating themselves? Should
the only democratic and socially
progressive state that has ever
existed in the Middle-Fast sur-
render to feudalistic dictators and
Sometimes it is said that a new
Palestine with Arabs and Israelis
living side by side would be a vi-
able alternative to throwing the
Arabs into the desert or the Is-
raelis into the sea. However, I
would say that the Arabs have a
tremendous public relations prob-
lem; rightly or wrongly, they are
all too often looked on as bar-
barians who lie and cheat and
murder babies. Of course, their
duplicity in the UN and the rocket
lauchers at clearly marked Israeli
school buses do not help the mat-
AT ANY RATE, I seriously ques-
tion whether anyone, muchless
the Israelis, could live success-
fully with Moslem Arabs. I am
thinking of the something-less-
than-successful delicate balance
between Christian and Moslem
Arabs in Lebanon. I am thinking
of the continuing murder of half
a million black Christians by Mos-
lem Arabs in the Sudan. I am
thinking of the orgy of killing
several years ago of Buddhist Chi-
nese by frenzied Moslem mobs in
Indonesia. I am thinking of the
<merciless repression of the Kurds
by the Moslem Arabs in northern
Iraq. I am thinking of the con-
tinuing hostilities directed toward
Hindus by the Moslem state of

The question of the Arab refu-
gees, who willingly left Palestine
in 1948 with the encouragement of
their leaders, is constantly being
brought up as a claim to modern
Israel. But my God, Israel is a
nation of refugees who have cre-
ated a garden out of a junk heap.
Let no one forget that more Jews
were kicked out of the Moslem
countries of the Middle East than
all the Arabs who left Palestine.

Silent Majority inside, protestors outside
By DEBRA THAL
Vice President Spiro Agnew, featured
speaker at a $100 per plate fund raising
dinner for the Republican party, the out-
spoken voice of the Silent Majority.
While more than 4,000 bejewelled mem-
bers of the wealthy Republican party wait
inside, while hundreds of anti-war and
anti-Agnew protesters demonstrate out-
side, the Vice President watches Huntley-
Brinkley. He later names the show "'Truth
or Consequences" or "Laugh-In."
Over their martinis and manhattans.
the invited guests at the dinner com-
pliment one another on new gowns or
wise business deals. Behind police lines,
the demonstrators ignore whether they
are dressed in jeans and long hair or a
business suit; they are together against
what Agnew represents.
The ruffles and flourishes of a bugle
and drum corps are heard as the color
guard approaches with the Vice President
in tow. He is surrounded by a crowd of
Secret Service men to protect him from
any danger or annoyance.
The official guests rise to their feet and
applaud for each service represented in
the honor guard as their song is played.
Outside, the uninvited guests chant,
"Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh,
Inside, the dinner progresses oblivious
to the dissent outside. Agnew and friends
enjoy their sumptuous sirloin steak din-
ner and Fat Bob sings, "I'm proud to be
As Earle Perkins' 12 piece band along
with vocalist Jeanie Darr plays for the
enjoyment of the Republicans, a mother
of four young girls shouts, "Millions are
dying," as a late-arriving couple leave
their Rolls Royce.
An old, old man with a full white beard
join the ranks of the peace demonstra-
tors. Fred the Poet explains his presence,
"I've lived more than 75 years. I'm still
looking for peace. They made me fight
in the First World War; they drafted me.
They tried to make me a professional
killer but they failed."

well as a lot of other places around the
The protesters hold a brief rally. Sev-
eral young people speak of racism, im-
perialism and male chauvinism.
There are no blacks to be seen inside
of the dinner-except for two in the mili-
tary honor guard and, of course, many of
The guests at the dinner are Detroit's
wealthiest citizens. They represent almost
every company that ever exploited a
small, underdeveloped nation or took over
an entire country for their own profits.
Those same people also represent the
companies that pay women less for the
same job and won't give them positions+
of responsibility because "You would just
go of and have children." Even the way
the elite relate to each other show dem-
onstrates their ideas on a woman's place."
Women were there for the same reason
as the flowers, because they look nice.
Even Mrs. Agnew was ignored.
However, just as there were two token
blacks on the military honor guard, there
was a token woman with a high position
in the party. Almost every speaker
throughout the evening remainded the
group how they must support Lenore
Romney, "She's our girl," in the race to
oust incumbent Democrat, half-way lib-
eral Sen. Philip Hart.
After boring introductions by Gov. Mil-
liken, House Minority Leader Gerald Ford
and Sen. Robert Griffin-all good Michi-
gan Republicans-Agnew spoke. Outside
of the usual boring anecdotes, all he said
was that he was for a "progressive par-
tisanship" in other words, or he would
tolerate "rational dissent."
Good for him. Maybe he will tolerate it.
He, along with everyone else at the din-
ner, completely ignored the demonstra-
tors. But the guests, if anything, were
worse than the Vice President.
As they left, protesters shouted anti-
war slogans and remonstrated them
for their attire and jewels from behind
police lines; the guests either completely
ignored them, asked the police (and there
were more of them than the protesters)
to "get those.niggers outa my way," or
berated the demonstrators-many very
respectable adults-for their irresponsi-

Does that mean that one is suppose to
