(UPI)—The Michigan State University Board of Trust- ees Friday picked Clifton R. Wharton Jr. to become the first Negro president of a major American university. Wharton, 42, was chosen by a 5-3 vote of the MSU board at its morning meeting. His selection ended a six-month search for a successor to John A. Hannah, who left in April to join the Nixon administration. A C I F I C Wharton, Boston-horn and educated at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins Uni- versity and the University of Chicago, is currently vice president of the Agricul- tural Development Council, a private non- profit corporation. Wharton was a member of New York Gov, Nelson A. Rockefeller's presidential mission to Latin America. He is considered(Continued on Back Page.

Like Charles de Gaulle be- fore him, Park had told his countrymen he would resign if he lost the referendum. At 8:30 a.m., with 81.2 per cent of the votes counted, the con- stitutional revision had received f>,119,033 votes, well over asimple majority of the 11,584,062 votes cast. A majority was re- quired to approve the constitu- tional change.A g a i n s t the constitutional amendments were 2,944,733 with 320,177 invalid votes. The referendum does not give a third term to Park, the man who re-established political sta- bility after the turmoil which followed the 1960 resignation of South Korea's first and wartime president, Dr. Syngman Rhee. But the victory lifts in 1971 aconstitutional rule limiting the president to two terms so that Park can run again for another four years in office.

Viefs Fire On Sovief 'Spy Ship' SAIGON (AP) — South Viet- namese patrol boats Friday fired on a ship identified by the U.S. and Vietnamese Navy com- mands as being a Russian spy ship, U.S. military officers said. It was riot immediately clear whether the ship, identified as a small Russian trawler in the 150- ton range, was hit in the shoot- ing incident off Da Nang. American military officerssaid they were unable to say whether the trawler was hit. But other sources reported some smoke was observed coming from the forward portion of the Irawler after the Vietnamese pa- trol boat fired on it. American officers said the trawler headed out to sea after the shooting incident but is still being kept under observation by U.S. ships and reconnaissance planes. Official South Vietnamese sources claimed the trawler was intercepted inside South Viet- nam's 12-mile territorial limits off Da Nang. American officers gave thisaccount: At about 10:55 a.m. Thursday, a small ship in the 150-ton range was observed off Da Nang.

The President announced he will send letters this weekend to a cross section of business and labor lead- ers urging that they take account of prophesied cool- ing off of inflation in mak- ing wage, price and invest- ment decisions. While insisting he would tell no one how to set wages or prices, Nixon called on labor "to base their wage demands on the new prospect of a return to-ward price stability." And he said businessmen should base their investment and price deci- sions "on that new economic cli- mate, keeping in mind that it is in their private interest to be realistic in their planning and to help build a strong economy." Nixon also voiced an appeal tofitizens in general: "I call upon all Americans to bear the burden of restraint in their personal credit and pur- chasing decisions, so as to re- duce ihc- pressures that help drive prices out of sight." Asserting that the administra- tion has asked the country to take "bitter medicine," he went on: . "I can report to you that the medicine has begun to work.
