Chile Military Units Threaten Coup
SANTIAGO, Chile A revolt by two units of an army
division posed the threat yesterday of a military coup in Chile
for the first time in 30 years.
But late in the day. President Eduardo Frei told the nation
on radio and television that he had the “overwhelming backing
of all the armed forces throughout the country" and declared,
“No one will move me fiom here."
The government imposed a state of siege and suspended
Congress so it could deal with what it called an “attempt at

Brandt Wins West German Chancellorship
BONN Social Democrat leader Willy Brandt was
elected West Germany's first Socialist chancellor yesterday bv
a narrow margin ringing down the curtain on 20 years of
Christian Democrat rule.
Three weeks after the Sept. 28 federal elections, the new
Bundestag voted the 05-ye;*r-old Brandt into office by 51 votes,
two more than the required absolute majority.
While Brandt was celebrating his victory, financial obser
vers in Bonn said they expect his government to decide in the
next few days on evaluation of the mark. Bonn sources said
they expect the decision at a Cabinet meeting Friday, with an
announcement of the mark’s new value by the week’s end
Yesterday the new chancellor announced his Coalition
Cabinet of 12 Social Democrats and three Free Democrat
The election capped a long and colorful political career. It
was Brandt's third successive try at the chancellorship.
His success was made possible by nationwide gains in the
federal election, giving the Socialists 224 seats. 22 more than
in the last election.

Senator Predicts Troop Withdrawal
WASHINGTON Sen. George D. Aiken, dean of Senate
Republicans, said yesterday he expects practically all
American ground troops will be withdrawn from South" Viet
nam within one year.
The Vermont senator sounded a keynote for optimistic
forecasts about the war, and the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee postponed a planned senes of Vietnam hearings
until after President Nixon reports to the nation on his policy
“As a matter of courtesy it seemed proper for the com
mittee to defer its hearings until after the President has
spoken," Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark.) the chairman of the

probably televised, days including apoearances by Secretary

No Nixon Comment On Agnew Speech
WASHINGTON President Nixon appeared yesterday to
be trying to disassociate himself from Vice President Spiro T.
Agnew's denunciation of last week's peace demonstration.
For the second day in a row presidential press secretary
Ronald L. Ziegler said the Agnew speech had not been seen
nor reviewed in advance by the White House.
At the State Department, press officer Robert J. Mc-
Closkev said a very different kind of statement which nad
been made by Secretary William P. Rogers in New York Mon
day night was made known to the White House in advance of
Agnew was thus pictured by the White House as having
acted on his own, so far as the President is concerned, when
he said in a New Orleans speech Sunday night that the
Moratorium Day demonstration was encouraged by “an effete
corps of impudent snobs,” and “hard core dissidents and pro
fessional anarchists” were planning for violent action in'the
streets next month.

A week has parsed -''.nee last Wednesday's National Viet
nam War Moratorium and those involved have had time to
contemplate the outcome of that day. Charles Veley, coor
dinator of the Moratorium activities at the University, and
others who worked with him are generally pleased with the
the words many people used to describe the day here.
Veley said the day ‘'gave people a chance to see the move
ment not as an underground thing, but as a responsible public
action." He added. "It accomplished the superficial ends, to
get people out to see each other. But we've got to get people to
keep working ’’
Vclev said a major complaint of many people was that
there was not enough opportunity for them to participate m
He said next month's two-dav Moratorium would be more
concerned with audience participation and "there would be
lots of time devoted to questions and answers."
According to Veley. the major thrust of the next
Moratorium. Nov. 14. will be aimed at local workshop groups,
classrooms, houses and churches.
Pete Wood, of the Coalition for Peace, ex
pressed the disappointment of many people. "People were ex
pecting to get more information than they did; they were
disappointed in that sense. We're planning Nov. 14 to be a day
of small group instruction so they can get answers to their

He called the Moratorium participation "a turning point for

Is Beatle Dead?
(Continued from page one)
solo in “Hey Jude.” have been persistent in their statements
that it is McCartney who is still singing for the Beatles.
But according to the Michigan Daily, voiceograms have
been done on pre-1966 Beatle albums and post-1966 albums,
and there is a difference.
Again, this claim has not been substantiated.
The most eerie part ol the speculations, though, is the
interpretation of the symbolism on the Beatle covers and in
the picture sections inside their albums.
Here are some of the more interesting interpretations:
—On the cover of "Sgt. Pepper," McCartney wears an
armband with the initials O.P.D. In England, "0.P.D." stands
for "officially pronounced dead."
—Also on "Sgt. Pepper." McCartney is wearing a medal
which is supposedly only awarded posthumously.
—ln one of the centerfold pictures on "Magical Mystery
Tour," Beatles John Lennon. Bingo Starr and George Harrison
all have red carnations, while McCartney has a black one.
—Another of these pictures is of McCartney seated behind
a desk with a sign in front of him reading, "I Was."
—The Greek word for dead, it is rumored, is similar to a
popular Beatle-word, "walrus." And in the song "The Glass
Onion." one verse is: "Here is a clue for you all, the walrus is
One of the most interesting interpretaions can be found on
the cover of "Abbey Hoad." Fictured on the front arc the four
Beatles, walking from a cemetery across from what is label
ed "Abbey Hoad.” In the background is a stone wall with a
crack running through it. This, t as the rumor goes, is where
McCartney's car crashed. The symbolic part, though, is the
v\ay the four Beatles are dressed up.
Lennon is in white, representing a priest, or God: Ringo is
in black tie and tails, representing an undertaker: Harrison is
dressed shabbily, representing a grave digger, and “dead"
McCartney is m a black suit, with no shoes or socks on. The
obvious interer.ee, of course, is that no one is ever buried with
their shoes on.
There are hundreds of other symbolic interpretations,
most of them with a Far Eastern mystical significance.
One explanation pi eposes that McCartney is physically
alive and thaL the death symbolism has to do with his spiritual
being. The Beatles w’ere known to be dabbling in Eastern
religions and, according to the theory. McCartney was the
only one who did not accept these teachings.
This particular rumor explains that the other three
Beatles considered McCartney spiritually "dead"—and this is
offered as an explanation for the death signs.

general slacking of opinion of the Vietnam War.” And
although the day did have instructional drawbacks, Fossi said
it did prompt a lot of people to express themselves.
Veley and Fossi both expressed disappointment at the way
the news media reported the Moratorium, They said the
media was not concerned with what had been accomplished
but that the movement had been peaceful.
Plans for the University’s next Moratorium call for a day of
discussion Nov. 14 and participation in the Washington
demonstration Nov. 15.
Fossi warned. "The people who organized this movement
should not pat each other on the back and go home. This isn’t
the end of just one demonstration. Our enthusiasm for the
next Moratorium is tempered because we wish there wouldn't
be a need for another one."
Peace Center Coordinator Laurie Trieb said, "The general
theme we got from the Moratorium was, ‘no more Victnnms.’
We’re really trying to think now about what direction we’re
going to take."
