Nixon consumer adviser calls
foreign trade bill inflationary
WASHINGTON (4)- Presi-
dent Nixon's consumer adviser
attacked the foreign trade bill
yesterday on the eve of sched-
uled final House committee ac-
tion on the measure. But the
committee reaffirmed its stand
on at least one section of the
"The imposition of import
quotas will hurt virtually every
consumer in the United States.
particularly lower-income con-
sumers," said a statement re-
leased from the office of Vir-
ginia Knauer, special presiden-
tial assistant for consumer af-
Shortly after Mrs. Knauer re-
leased her statement, the House
Ways and Means Committee
overrode the objections of Sec-
retary of Commerce Maurice
Stans in closed session and
voted again to maintain a pro-
vision which would strip the
President of the power to revise
the oil-import control progra .
The vote was 17 to 7. An ear-
lier vote was 16 to 5. Final ac-
tion is due today.
Mrs. Knauer predicted the bill
would drive up prices and pos-.
sibly leave poor families inable
to afford shoes and clothing.
"Higher prices, fewer pro-
ducts choices, reduced competi-
tion and a limited supply of im-
ported products are the probable
result of the proposed import-
quota legislation," she said.
Although the President hak
supported textile-quota legisla-
tion, he has threatened to veto
the bill as _it now stands.
Besides providing for textile
quotas and including the oil-im-
port quotas, the bill would set
quotas for shoe imports and give
the President authority to set
quotas on other products.
Ways and Means Committee
member Rep. James Burke (D-
Mass), told reporters after the
meeting that shoe quotas will
stay in the bill.
Although Mrs. Knauer's state-
ment made no mention of tex-
tiles, it indicated some dissen-
sion within the administration
by endorsing federal aid to in-
jured industries or workers in
place of quotas.
Mitchell backs police

By The Associaied Press
Right-wing members of Israel's cabinet
threatened yesterday to walk out if the
government accepts the U.S. peace pro-
posal for the Middle East.
Meanwhile with Arab ranks also torn
by the proposal, Egypt closed down two
Palestinian guerrilla radio stations for
criticizing Egypt's acceptance of the plan.
The Israeli cabinet postponed for a
second time a decision, and sources said
the rightwing Gahal faction, with 6 of the
24 cabinet seats, was split in a stormy
Israeli's state radio said Prime Minister
Golda Meir was 'conferring with Gahal
leaders in efforts to avoid a cabinet crisis.
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan,
who is not in the cabinet accepted the
"stop-shooting-start talking" proposal of
U.S. Secretary of State William P. Rogers.
"We are not so strong we can forfeit our
allies," he said.

At least three persons have
died in mass confrontations with
police in the past few weeks.

pushed the police back onto the
softball field. Then I heard 50
to 100 shots fired. At that time
I was standing on Columbus
Drive, which borders the soft-
ball field on the west.
When the shots were fired,
people started running off the
field in every direction. Plain-
clothesmen wielding rubber clubs
waded into the crowd--still
numbering over 3,000-making
vicious arrests and beating up
anyone they could grab hold of.
Most of the people who left
the field appeared headed to-
wards the "loop" in central Chi-
cago-about a half mile from
Grant Park. By 8:30 p.m. the
softball field had been cleared.
It was fairly dark by then.
The car that had been burned
was still smoking. About 1,000
people from the crowd stayed
in the general vicinity. Close to
200 police were patrolling the
area, and 20 squad cars and
five paddy wagons remained
parked on Columbus Drive.

The FBI again failed to make an
appearance on campus yesterday, and
the Legal Self-Defense (LSD) office al-
lowed an ROTC representative to claim
the materials allegedly stolen from North
Hall during the May takeover of that
building by students.
"We're sick of guarding the stuff," Jim
Forrester of LSD said, "if they want it,
they can come get it." Students had been
keeping a 24-hour watch on the office
shared by LSD and the New Mobilization
Committee to End the War in Vietnam
since Friday when two FBI agents at-
tempted to enter without a search war-
rant and confiscate the allegedly stolen.
After being refused admission Friday
by Student Government Council which
handles office assignments in the Student
Activities Bldg., the FBI agents said
they were trying to get a sea rch warrant.
However, the agents never returned to
the office with a warrant.
A spokesman at the Ann Arbor FBI
office also said Monday that the agents
involved in the case were consulting with
a U.S. attorney in Detroit to decide what
further action could be taken.
William Hart (whose picture ran, with
folded arms, in Friday's Daily), an agent
contacted yesterday at the FBI office in
Ann Arbor. said he had talked with Orin
Jones at the U.S. attorney's 'office, but
neither Hart nor Jones would comment
on the outcome of their discussion.
Chief Clarence Crawford of the naval
science ROTC division retrieved one
celestial globe, a set of miniature signal
flags, a poster card lettering kit, some
miscellaneous papers and a suitcase con-
taining paints and chalk which he ident-
ified as belonging to the three ROTC
programs housed in North Hall.
Crawford said he - was acting on in-
structions from Colonel Samuel Hannah.
chairman of Navy ROTC. Chief Security
Officer Roland Gainsley said the mate-
rials claimed in the LSD office were
ultimately turned over to Hannah.
Before Crawford left with the materials
Forrester said he had been instructed by
his attorney to tell the ROTC representa-
tive. "You people should keep better
track of your stuff.'
University attorney Craig Christensen
said he informed agent Hart yesterday
that the property was being moved to
North Hall. Hart would not say whether
the FBI still intends - to confiscate the
WASHINGTON (,P)-The presidential
Blue Ribbon Defense Panel recommended
yesterday drastic overhaul of the Penta-
gon's leadership structure aimed at
strengthening civilian control, promoting
efficiency and ending serious cost over-
runs in buying weapons.
Panel chairman Gilbert Fitzhugh, sum-
ming up the findings of a year-long
study, described the Defense Department
as "just an amorphous lump . . . with
nobody in charge of anything."
One of the group's main proposals-
bound to kindle controversy-calls for
stripping the Joint Chiefs of Staff of
their military operational functions and
creating a separate operations staff under

The Chicago Park District commission-
ers voted unanimously to cancel four
"pop" concerts scheduled for the park in
August and another program set for
September in Soldier Field.
Mayor Richard J. Daley and Daniel J.
Shannon, park district president, said the
three-hour clash between policemen and
demonstrators was "premeditated.'"
Police arrested 165 persons on charges
of mob action as a result of the melee.
Three youths were wounded by gunfire.
Of those injured, 65 were policemen.
Daley told a news conference: "Mon-
day's concert was held to provide enter-

down the "camaraderie" the Park Dis-
trict established with youths.
The battle started shortly after the
