VOL. 68, No. 47 from the associated press wm News Roundup: From the State, Notion & World The World Viet Cong Storm U.S. Compound Near Saigon SAIGON Striking 21 miles from Saigon, 700 Viet Cong guerrillas overran a provincial capital where a U.S. civilian development team is operating, hoisted their Com munist ilag and held the town in terror for three hours yesterday before vanishing in the bush near Cambodia's border. A heavy Initial mortar bombardment, aimed chiefly at the U.S. civilian-military compound, killed three civilian Americans and wounded 15 others, both civilian and mili tary, Fourteen South Vietnamese were killed and 26 wounded in addition to moderate casualties suffered by a government military force. After the mortar attack, the guerrillas stormed through the streets of Kheim Cuong, 10 miles east of Cambodia, and flew their flag from a central building. It was shot down in a sharp firefight. The attack followed by two days the overrunning of the village of Tan Uyen, six miles from the big U.S.- South Vietnamese base at Bien Iloa and 23 miles north of Saigon. * * * Johnson-Eshkol Extended Israeli Talks STONEWALL Tex. President Johnson and Prime Minister Levi Eshkol of Israel ended overtime talks at the LBJ Ranch yesterday and said that Johnson had agreed to active, sympathetic review of Israel's "military defense capability." No offer of U.S. arms aid was announced Johnson and Eshkol also "restated their dedication to the establishment of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East," in .the spirit of a United Nations resolution of November. Peace in that uneasy area of the world had been billed as the prime topic of discussions between the President and prime minister—talks which began Sunday, continued yesterday, and ran three hours past the time set for Eshkol's departure. Freezing rain and icing conditions compelled Eshkol to leave by car rather than plane for Bergstrom Air Force Base at Austin, 65 miles away, en route back to New York. Johnson and Eshkol ended their talks under a cloud of re newed fighting on the Israeli-Jordanian frontier. The Nation U.S. Heart Transplant Patient Failing STANFORD, Calif. Mike Kasperak's condition be came critical yesterday—the second day •after his failing heart was replaced by another—but doctors managed to halt internal bleeding that threatened his life. They said his new heart appeared to be functioning "very well." Doctors at Palo Alto-Stanford Medical Center said Kasperak was conscious. The bleeding from stomach and intestines two days after the ope tion stemmed from liver disease, they said. They said the many compl cations suffered by the 54-year-old steelworker were !'s 'ere but soluble." He had been reported in satisfactory co dition earlier in the day despite expected difficulty in br athing. Kasperak's condition became critical when the bleeding began. Fresh blood transfusions and other measures ap parently stopped the bleeding, attending physicians said in a midafternoon bulletin. * * * $4 Million in Grants to Ghettos Announced WASHINGTON The heads of four government agen cieS announced yesterday approval of 24 million in grants for , ll cities in response to President Johnson's pledge for "the establishment —in every ghetto in America of a neighborhood center to service the people- who live there." They said the experimental project will try to achieve coordination of federal, state and local services in poVerty neighborhoods. Officials have said that lack of such coordination has held back progress in the antipoverty program. which now operates about 700 neighborhood centers around the coun try. The cities selected are Boston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Louisville, Minneapolis, Phila delphia, St. Louis and Washington, D.C. Approval is ex pected within the next month for Jacksonville, Fla., New York, and Oakland, Calif. Surveyor 7 on Course for Landing Tonight PASADENA, Calif. Surveyor 7 sped toward the moon yesterday on a course so accurate scientists said they might not have to make a final steering maneuver. A decision was expected within several hours. Flight controllers at Jet Propulsion Laboratory made a major course change Sunday, aiming the instrument loaded spacecraft closer to the rugged crater Tycho, near the soutlicentral edge of the lunar disk. Surveyor 7 is due to land tonight with a television camera; a small scoop to dig trenches as deep as 18 inches; a device to analyze soil with radiation, and magnets to detect iron. The mission of the final unmanned U.S. lunar lander is purely scientific-designed to tell if there is any signifi cant difference between the highlands around Tycho and the quatorial plains chosen for astronaut landings planned to start as early as next year. Four successful earlier Surveyors have sent back thousands of photographs showing that four primary sites are safe for manned expeditions. Continuing Cold Wave Hits All But Florida Numbing cold hung on through the northeastern sec tion of the nation yesterday while heavy snow and sleet closed many highways and caused traffic pileups in areas of the Southwest. The severe weather sent temperatures below the freez ing level early yestrday in 47 of the 48 contiguous states. Only Florida, where low readings were in the upper 30s in the northern section, escaped the freeze. Numerous deaths were attributed to the weather. The large high pressure system responsible for the cold weather in the eastern two thirds of the nation the last few days was, moving eastward yesterday. The State New Appeal for Aid to Nonpublic Schools HARRISBURG A Philadelphia delegate appealed yesterday a decision that would bar Pennsylvania's Con stitutional Convention from considering a proposal to pro vide state aid for nonpublic schools. The delegate, German Quiles, asked for a floor vote on Convention President Raymond J. Broderick's ruling that the proposal goes beyond the convention's limited jurisdiction to revise only specific articles of the Constitu tion. The vote was delayed until tomorrow, however, to give delegates an opportunity to study both Quiles' pro posal and the legal opinion Broderick used to support his decision to reject it.

"The University student doesn't care about the Vietnam war because he feels it doesn't affect him." In a recent interview, Long opposed this apathy and pointed out the definite effects that the draft situation could have on a male student's career or marriage plans. USG hopes to arouse student concern about Vietnam in a debate, "We Should Be in Vietnam," Jan. 22. Because of the number of potential servicemen attending the University, Long feels it is vital for the students to voice their opinions on the war. He called for all stu dents to stop conforming to an apathetic at titude and take a definite stand on. Vietnam and other issues, both on the University and national levels. ARTIST'S DRAWING of University Research Center, Unit I,•recently approved by the Board.‘of Trustees. The building will be located in the research area on East Campus, and will cost close to $2 million, - Nine Soloists Perform As each Aria Group A group of nirt: "master musicians," each world-famous in his own right, will open the winter season of the University Artists Series at 8:30 p.m. Friday in Schwab. The Bach Aria Group, directed by Wil liamn.H. Scheide, will perform selections from cantatas Bach composed for the Lutheran churches of Leipzig. Though this large body of music is acknowledged to be Bach's major work, it was rarely performed because music ensembles no longer include both vocal and insf - umental soloists. Tickets will be available free to stu dents from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Hetzel Union Building desk and will be distributed 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. - 10-12. They will go on sale at 9 a.m. Jan. 10. International Acclaim The group • has .drawn applause and standing-room only crowds here and abroad since it was. formed by Scheide in 1946. The only organization of its kind in the United States, it has made • many recordings and earned such adjectives as "extraordinary," "magnificent" and "superlative" from critics. In each of the series and duets they perform. outstanding instrumental work is on equal footing with vocal solos. The works are taken from over 650 pieces scored for combinations of five instruments and four voices. _ A major intention of the group, accord ing to. founder and Bach authority Scheide, is to remove the modern cleavage between vocal and instrumental music and thus "cor rect the most serious error found in modern Bach performances." • Collegian Committee Assumes Duties A Collegian Committee on Accuracy and Fair Play, appointed to hear all comments and complaints concern ing The Daily Collegian, assumes its duties beginning with today's publication. Serving on the committee are Charles H. Brown, pro fessor of journalism; Faith Tanney, Association of Women Students president, and Harvey Reeder, sophomore class president. All are members of Collegian, Inc., publisher of The Daily Collegian, and were appointed by John D. Vairo, president of the board of directors. Establishment of the committee was authorized at the board's • Nov. 1 meeting with appointments to be an nounced by the president. The committee is to function in a fact finding and advisory capacity and will review all comments submitted in writing through the office of Collegian adviser Donna S. Clemson, 20 Sackett. Names of the committee members will be published daily in the Collegian masthead on page 2 and readers are urged to avail themselves of the opportunity to voice opinions through this official channel. Identification will be required on all communications with the committee on Accuracy and Fair Play, but all information will be kept confidential, Vairo explained. It is the board's feeling that closer communication .with its reading public students, faculty, administrators and townspeople will aid the Collegian in expanding and improving its service as a daily newspaper.

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA., TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 9, 1968 Long Assails Apathy Also iscusses USG Action On Ritenour, Parking Lots Confers on Parking Lois Concerning new action taken on old legislation, the Administration Awareness Committee wants to improve the parking lot situation by having all girls park close to the dormitories, Long announced. Before definite changes can be made, however, USG must contact the Association of Women Stu dents to inquire about the possibility of such a proposal. According to Long, the installa tion of lights in the east parking lots behind Curtin Rd. has been delayed but not can celled. Because of the war, the copper wire needed for the lights is dificult to purchase. Another problem which was examined This intention necessitated the gathering of nine individually brilliant performers, Scheide's success is witnessed by the Boston Post critic who wrote, "Nine first rank solo artists took part in this superlative perform ance of some of the very best examples of Bach at his peak." Members of the group are Samuel Baron, flute; Robert Bloom, oboe; Norman Farrow, bass-baritone; 'Maureen Forrester, alto; Ber nard Greenhouse, cello; Richard Lewis, tenor; Lois Marshall, soprano; Oscar Shumsky, vio lin, and Paul Ulanowsky, piano. Tuneful Bach The music itself has been called the most tuneful that Bach write. The arias, remark able for their beauty, vigor, melody and varie,ty, were described as "music without equal or any near parallel" by Paul Hume of the Washington Post. In his book on Bach, Albert Schweitzer wrote that "in compari son with the cantatas, everything else that Bach has done appears as hardly more than a supplement." Howard Taubman of the New York Times summed up the critical reaction to the Group: "Among the enterprises that help to give New York a musical life in depth the Bach Aria Group is one of the most valuable. The Bach Aria Group serves Bach in a manner that serves us all." The next presentation in the Series will be the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London Jan. 23 in Rec Hall. Also scheduled for this term are the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Feb. 3, and pianist Philippe Entremont, Mar. 1. Theatrical Newcomer Finds New Role As Playwright Until a year ago, pretty young Michele Peruzzi had never even seen a live profes sional theatre production. Last term, however, she made her debut as a playwright, with the 'production of her Biblical satire, "And His Name Shall Be Called," by the University's 5 O'Clock Thea tre. . A 19-year-old hazel-eyed sophomore in theatre arts from Rochester, Pa., Miss Peruz zi calls her one-act vignette a "subtle inter pretation of Biblical legend." "It starts with Adam and Eve and works up to the present, presenting a satirical pic ture of life, at times funny and 'camp,' at other times very serious," she explains. The 5 O'Clock Theatre is a program devised 18 years ago by the University's Department of Theatre Arts.. It gives 'stu dents the opportunity to write, produce, di rect and act in one-act productions, usually no longer than 30 minutes. Miss Peruzzi , says she got the idea for her play from a discussion on religion with one of her classmates. "It came to me. like a brainstorm," she recalls. "Something inside of me said 'go', and I started working on it last summer, finish ing it at home. Religion has always been important to me, and the play represents my own interpretations of the idea. "Names are not mentioned in the play, but it becomes quite obvious who the charac7 ters are even though the whole thing is done in, modern dress." A 1966 graduate of Rochester High School, Michele says she has always been last term was the new charges for patients at Ritenour Health Center. Long said the state wold have to give the Univ - ersity, more money before the Administration could take any action. "We have decided not to concentrate our efforts on Ritenour," Long announced. "It seems to be something . that is not going to be resolved for a while." In connection with an all-out effort to encourage discussion of national issues such as Vietnam, Long supports USG involve ment in Associated Student Government and National Student Government. ASG has no political affiliation. Its purpose is to discuss Polls Show lotipson . :: Leading GO Hotiefitli WASHINGTON (AP) Two public opinion polls reported yesterday that President John son is running ahead of former Vice President Richard M. Nixon. A special survey by Louis Harris, copyrighted by the Washington Post, said Johnson is riding a new crest of popular ity that would make him the fa vorite over all four leading Tie publican presidential contend ers if the election were held now. This is a reversal of the situa tion two months ago when a Harris survey indicated that any one of the four GOP possi bilities could defeat the Presi. dent. The Gallup Poll reported that in a two-way race Johnson would have a 46 to 41 per cent edge over Nixon with 13 per cent undecided. McCarthy . Ina national:sample of adults in 310 'locations around the, country, the ' Gallup Poll re-: ported that if Sen. Eugene McCarthy (D-Minn.) ran as an independent peace candidate iii a four-way race he could ex pect about nine million votes. This poll matched McCarthy against Johnson, Nixon and for mer Gov.. George Wallace, of Alabama, a probable states rights third-party candidate. McCarthy has said he intends to compete with Johnson for the Democratic nomination ' and does not plan to run as an inde pendent. The Harris survey was com pleted Dec. 21 and covered 2,003 households. It said: e Although Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York ties Johnson 43 to 43 per cent in a two-way race, when Wallace is added to the list Johnson takes the lead over Rockefeller 41 to 37 per cent, with Wallace receiving 12 per cent. •Against Nixon Johnson now Grade System Before Senate The University Senate meets today for the first session of the new year.

In addition' to discussion of new and unfinished business, ,if any reaches the floor, the Sen ate will hear an address by Ernest C.

She already has' played lead roles in several plays on • campus, and is currently learning the management 'end of theatre, working in the two campus, theatre. box-offices. One of the roles she played was in the "5 O'Clock" production of "Home Again, Home Again," which won third prize last year in "Story Magazine's" annual play= writing competition. As for the ,future, Michele still aspires to be an actress, more than a playwright. • . "I think you get more of a chance to be creative as an actor or actress," she says. "It's you who makes the role come alive." • In the meantime, she intends to continue writing. •"After having written a play you really .

NSA, however, is politically oriented and presently support's, the Black Power movement, but not the war in Vietnam. Long feels that involvement in such organizations would also arouse"student interest both in local and national issues and in USG. Class rings are another issue on the agenda for USG this term. Because of stu dent complaints about the high c,St of rings sold at downtown jewelers, USG is working to organize a jewelry agency sponsored by the University, Long said'. There would , be one standard ring available from the essen tially non-profit agency. In conjunction with the jewelry project, Long announced that there is also a committe investigating the possibility of a student discount card similar to the airlines' youth cards. For a nominal fee, students would. be eligible for discounts at various stores, hotels, and restaurants: • has opened up a 50 to 41 •per the' nominee,, but I think,. this cent edge, a three-point gain can be a healthy inlluenc,e, and for the President in three I am not taking a• position weeks and a nine-point rise in during the period of tithe' the two months. primaries are going on.', • Johnson runs ahead of Gov.
