United States erm Vote Today By ROD CUItHIU WASHINGTON (CP) Americans vote today in an election tlial will leave vllal guideposts to future trends in United States politics even though it lacks the glamor of a presidential duel. More than any oilier president in history in' a mid-leniT vote, Uichard Nixon has campaigned throughout the country on (he theme that the break- down ol law and order is the principle crisis in the laljric of American life today. The people Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew calls and Democrats in general, arc blamed. Whether or not voters respond to this theme, or to the Democratic charge that the state of the eco- nomy is more important, will be reflected in several key contests. In final shots, Nixon and Democratic Senator Ed- mmid Muskie ot Maine shared a half-hour television time Holiday night. Nixon called en "the great silent majority" to speak out in the polling booth "against the appease- ment of the rock throwers and the obscenity shoutcrs in America." Muskie, vice-presidential candidate in 1968 and likely presidential candidate against Nixon in 1372, accused the Republicans of trying to scare voters into the Republican camp. He charged Nixon with leading, inspiring and guid- ing a political campaign built on lies, slander, naiue- calling and "deception of almost imprecedenled vol- ume." 'Hie Nixon message look the form of a speech in Phoenix, Ariz., earlier in which he drummed anew on liis law-and-ordcr theme. Apathy Apparent Despite 'his last-minute show of high political spirits, and the steamrolling personal campaign across the land by Agnew, the election has been marked by apathy and uncertainty. Many among the 12-1 million eligible voters expressed indecision or even lack of interest right up to election eve. Most attention centres on the 35 Senate races, with Republicans hoping against all odds to make the seven-seat not gain that would give them control there. Also at stake are 35 of the 50 an-I all M5 in the House of 'Representatives. Republicans began the campaign hoping to win con- trol of the split 57-43 for the despite the traditional inclination of Americans to vote against tie party controlling the White House. The Republicans are given little or no chance of upsetting the Democratic control of the house, now standing 243 to 187. JACK THE RIPPER?

School Strike School Costs Dispute Ends Ja_ Commission Advocated EDMONTON strike by caretakers and main- tenance men that kept thou- sands of pupils out of public schools has ended as parties agreed to voluntary binding ar- bitration, it was announced today. WINNIPEG (CP) University leaders have asli- ed the federal government to establish a commission to study the problems of post-secondary education cost which are expected to triple over a seven-year pe- riod from 1968 to 1975. The request was made public Monday by the As- sociation of Universities and Colleges of Canada at the opening of the four-day annual meeting here. The association recommends the study be undertaken joint- ly by the federal government and the provincial gov- ernments, with support from the universities. J. J. Deutsch, principal of Queen's University in Kingston, OnL, (old a news conference Monday the association was "very much afraid" the challenges fac- ing post-secondary education would not receive the attention they deserve if the commission is not set up soon. Mr. Deutsch said the association was also "afraid decisions "concerning a new cost-sharing formula may only be made at the last minute" if adequate time is not taken for study. The present cost-sharing formula, under which the federal government pays 50 per cent of the operat- ing cosls of Canadian universities and finances the Canada Student Loan program, expires March, 1972. The AUCC is asking in its brief for the continua- tion of tho present transfer arrangement until 1973 so a commission would have time to report on its findings before n new cost-sharing formula is agreed upon. The AUCC brief warns that the universities may have to "turn away students who wish to attend or allow qualify to deteriorate'' if adequate financial sup- port is not forthcoming. The brief says operating and capital expenditures will triple in the seven-year span between 1960-GO and billion to billion. Over the same period, the brief predicts enrolment will almost from to full- time students.

The lady premier told a news conference at the conclusion of a one-day visit here Israel is agreeable to extension of the ceasefire, which ends this week, so long as it is mutually bind- ing. "We won't shoot as long as there is no shooting in the other side." However, she said in refer- ence to the SAM-3 missiles stationed on the Egyptian side of the Suez Canal in the last three months: "If undertakings can be broken immediately on coming into force, I don't see what sense there is in nego- tiating new agreements."

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ed- ward Molnar Miss Fonda was to appear before U.S. Com- missioner Clifford E. Bruce later today. Police said Miss Fonda had flown in from Toronto, and cus- toms Agents asked to search the overnight hag she was carrying. She was told that she would have to submit to a search by a matron at thn customs otlice after some plastic rials contain- ing pills were found in the hag, police said.

Sir Colin elaborated Monday night on a statement by the for- eign secretary Saturday that Is- rael should withdraw from occu- pied Arab (errilory with only minor border changes.

The small, grandmotherly Is- raeli leader told reporters her talks with Prime Minister Tru- deau and External Affairs Min- ister Sharp on the midcast situ- ation were "extremely pleas- ant." There had been a "very thorough and frank discussion of our problems." Nevertheless, she appeared to chide Canada along with other countries for not speaking louder against what she said were violations by the Arab states of solemn undertakings. If governments and foreign ministers agree the ceasefire has been violated they should apply the same standards to the Arab states as they aply to other countries, she said. This appeared to be a refer- ence to occasional resolutions adopted by the Security Council condemning Israeli punitive raids against her Arab neigh- bors. At the same lime, she ex- pressed a conviction that some day Israel and her Arab neigh- bors will live in peace and co- operation. Loug-Exliiict Volcano Spews Bright Flares SUVA.
