Allies Engage in Bitter Battle with VC
SAIGON U.S. and South Vietnamese troops slugged
it out last night with strong North Vietnamese forces in
the northeast corner of South Vietnam in the heaviest
fighting since the enemy's Tet offensive in February.
Casualty reports indicated American and South Viet
namese forces were killing 12 enemy soldiers for every
allied soldier' killed in the four days of bitter fighting
around Dong Ha and Hue.
The allies said en;:rny casualties since Monday were
1,139 and the U.S. and South Vietnamese reported 93 of
their men killed and 449 wounded.
Savage fighting was reported Thursday just north of
the U.S. Marine base at Dong Ha, 11 miles south of the de
militarized zone between the Vietnams. A North Viet
namese counterattack pushed back Marines assaulting a
bunker complex two miles northeast of the sprawling
Israel Marks 20th Anniversary
JERUSALEM The might of Zion—Soviet-made arms
Seized from the Arabs and planes and guns bought in the
United States and France—sped across captured Jerusalem
yesterday in an Israeli celebration of 20 years of state
hood that defied the United Nations and the Arab world.
Under a burning sun, 4;500 troops and 450 vehicles
crunched along a five-mile parade route that led through
an Arab quarter held by Jordan until the Middle East
war last June and into a traditionally Jewish area of the
once divided city.
Some 250,000 Israelis and visitors cheered as 300 planes
screamed overhead. American-built Skyhawk fighter
bombers led a formation that included a Soviet MIG2I,
delivered to Israel by an Iraqi defector. French Magister
jets looped through the skies, leaving blue and white
vapor trails that formed a Star of David.
The parade, denounced last week by the United Na
tions Security Council as a blow to Middle East peace,
caused angry demonstrations in Lebanon and Syria. But
Jerusalem's Arabs were quiet and the threat of terrorism by
the Al Fatah guerrilla organization did not materialize.
Bell Telephone Workers End Strike
WASHINGTON Telephone strikers won a three
year wage and fringe benefit increase totaling nearly 20
per cent yesterday in 1968's fattest labor contract agree
ment thus far. It will affect some 600,000 workers across
The AFL-CIO Communications Workers estimated the
settlement will cost the Bell System more than $2 billion
and top 'company officials said it will mean higher bills
for many of the nation's 50 million telephone subscribers.-
Some 200,000 strikers will vote in the next few days
on whether to end their 15-day-old nation-wide walkout
and accept the agreement, which would set a pattern for
most of the 400,000 other Bell System workers whose con
tracts, expire later,
"The new Bell System pattern agreements are big in
every sense," said the Union President, Joseph A. Beirne.
Poor People's March Gets Slow Start

King's Poor People's March on Washington got off to a
slow, creaking start yesterday, starting, at the point where

Lunches, cold drinks and portable restrooms awaited
them at the line of buses chartered to carry many of them

Southern Christian Leadership Conference spokesmen

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.—President Walter P. Reuther
of the United Auto Workers Union renewed his fight yes
terday with AFL-CIO President George Meany and hinted
at pulling the UAW out of the powerful labor federation.

which have caused friction between Fiance and the United

Many of Columbia's problems stem
from its location in an area with ser
ious urban problems, Lewis said. He
added that of the 720 students arrested
in the Columbia riots, 80 per cent were
Columbia students, 10 per cent were
students from other schools and 10 per
cent were non-students.
"We're not located in an urban cen
ter where non-students can get involved
in University affairs," Lewis said.
Violent protests are seriously harm
ful to the universities involved. Lewis
said, and he estimated it will take
Columbia University four or five years
to recover from last week's violence.
"Worker relationships are disturbed,
fund raising efforts are disrupted, and
the university loses' momentum and
class time, which costs money. Also, the
money used to clean up after such riois
could have been used for academic
facilities, Lewis said.
A survey taken by the University
last year showed that 65 to 70 per cent
of the students polled were satisfied
with their experience at the University,
"Academic pressures are the pri
mary objectives of the vast majority of
students," he stated.
"The question of apathy is age old,"
Lewis said. "Students aren't any more
apathetic than the general public is

Storch, for "their hard work and devotion
to USG and student government."
In an informal discussion session, the
congress talked of potential plans to attract
more Negro students to the University. Plans
were discussed for a USG Speaker's Bureau
to visit high schools and talk with potential
college students about the benefits of attend
ing the University.
Discussion was also on the subject of
football tickets for University students. Sev
eral congressmen said they hoped student
charges for such tickets may be reduced or

He said all students should try to help
USG achieve ''their common goals."
He added. "I may be leaving the presi
dency chair and I may be leaving this con
gress, but I'm not leaving USG's cause. I'll
be here helping USG next year." ,
Ted Thompson, USG vice president-elect,
announced that applications are available for
any student who wishes to serve next year
on USG's committees and commissions. These
applications are available at the USG office.
that this could seriously affect the ad
missions office's prediction as to the
number of students attending the Uni
versity in the near future. He stated
that the office might not be able to
"count on a fairly definite number of
women that would be living in town
each year," and that an uncertain num
ber would hamper its planning.
In another denial of Mrs. Foy's
charge of discrimination. Stanford
noted that more women apply to the
colleges of Liberal Arts, Human De
velopment, and Home Economics.
These colleges are practically "over
flowing" with females and• if more
were admitted, there would be a short
age ,of faculty members to handle the
increase, he added, . .
•• , -•-_ Insufficient - - Facilities-
lie said insufficient facilities for
women in these areas would be a ser
ious problem and that admitting more
women would only "compound the
situation." Mrs. Foy argues that ''the
facilities should be adjusted to handle
the admissions and not vice versa."
According to Stanford. some uni
versities utilize a "quota system"
whereby only a certain number of stu
dents are admitted to each college. He
said that at the University about 50
per cent of the students change col
leges at least once before graduation.
In this respect an established quota for
each college would be restricted, he
"We try to allow students freedom
of movement" from one college to an
other, Stanford said. Therefore we will
not attempt to establish a system of
quotas at the University, he added.
Citing the President's Commission
on Higher Education, which stated that
"the time has come to make public
education at all levels accessible to all,
without regard to race, creed, sex, or
national origin," Mrs. Foy urged all
women to write to their legislators and
demand action to prohibit discrimina
tion in education on any basis.
