On Oct. 4, 1968 Russell Fraser, who had been recently appointed as
the new English department chairman, announced a series of com-
prehensive revisions in' the curriculum and emphasis of his depar-
tment. Looking for a consensus among his colleagues, the English
Executive Committee and the Literary College, Fraser said the
changes were intended to improve concentration and graduate
programs while relieving faculty teaching burdens. The proposals in-
cluded converting most 200-level courses into lecture-recitation sec-
tions instead of the then practiced 30-person discussion sessions and
easing certain reijuirements through independent study and com-
prehensive exams.

Trashy theft
For all those artists who have cringed when people have viewed
their works and said "that's art?" comrade Mike Baur knows how you
feel. Baur really took it on the chin with the ultimate insult of his sculp-
tures. The 27-yerar-old Chicago resident put two metal works out in his
back yard to rust only to have them mistaken for junk by scrap dealers
passing through his neighborhood. When Baur later went to S. Gordon
and Sns Junkyard in search of some material for new products he
spotted his sculptures. The works, worth $1,500, were returned to Baur
for nocharge. Maybe you should go into painting, Mike.

Hearst's abduct

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - William
and Emily Harris were sentenced to 10
years to life in prison yesterday for the
kidnapping of Patricia Hearst. Their
attorneys predicted they would be free
within five years.
Alameda County District Attorney
Lowell Jensen said the sentence im-
posed by Superior Court Judge Stanley
Golde will be quickly converted to meet
requirements of a new law. He said the
term would then come to 10 years and
eight months in prison.
ATTORNEYS FOR the couple said
that with time off for good behavior and
credit for time served the Harrises
would be released in 1983.
Prior to today's court appearance,
court documents were released in
which the Harrises denied that the
newspaper heiress was ever tortured,
raped or brainwashed by the group that
abducted her.
It was the first time they had ever
replied directly to the version of Hear-
st's captivity that she had presented
while a defendant in a bank robbery
Harris, 33, and his 31-year-old wife
entered guilty pleas Aug. 31 in a sur-

prise plea' bargain which they said
would insure their release by 1983.
HOWEVER, BOTH defense and
prosecution attorneys said that today's
sentencing by GolfIe will give little in-
dication of how long the Harrises will
remain behind bars.
They already are serving an 11-year-
to-life sentence for a Los Angeles
shootout involving Miss Hearst.
The confusion about their ultimate
term stems from a recent change in the
California sentencing law.
BECAUSE THEIR crime occurred in
1974, Golde was required to sentence
the Harrises under the state's old and
much criticized indeterminate sentence
law which gave prisoners no set date
for release.
At a later date, however, the Califor-
nia Community Release Board will
revise the sentence to conform with the
new determinate sentencing law.
For instance, that board already has
ruled that the Harrises' sentence on the
Los Angeles conviction must end in
April 1980.
THE HARRISES' lawyers said
earlier they expected the sentence here
to add 3% years to the 1980 release date.

ors get'
Deputy District Attorney Alex Selvin
has refused to confirm that the 1983
release date is a likely result of the plea
bargain. "None of us can really say
what the board will do," the prosecutor
said. "I just don't want to get into
speculation on that."
But Mrs. Harris' lawyer, Susan Jor-
dan, said she believed the Harrises
would be free near the time they predic-
"THE EXPECTATION is that the
plea bargain agreement will be honored
at the time that they appear before the
Community Release Board," she said.
The Harrises came to California in
the early 1970s and helped form the
tiny, terrorist band known as the Sym-
bionese Liberation Army (SLA). Their

But soon after the trio's capture
Sept. 18, 1975, the newspaper heir

to commit crimes - a defense whic
federal jury rejected when they con
ted her of armed bank robbery in 5
Francisco. Hearst later pleaded no c
test to kidnapping, robbery and assa
charges in the Los Angeles shootout.

Buckley denounces

Midwife assistance:
now a legal choice

(Continued from Page 1)
BUCKLEY also advocated returning
power and revenue to states and local
areas that otherwise would receive
funding through Washington.
Buckley said voters now send
representatives to Congress "to get
back as much as they can from the
national pool." He compared members
of Congress to "pirates" being sent for
the "purpose of bringing home booty."
Buckley said "the sky 'is black with
criss-crossing dollars," adding that it
would be better not to send so much
money to Washington, only to have it

A change in the Michigan Public
Health Code will give mothers the
choice of having their babies delivered
by midwives instead of doctors. The
state Public Health Department has
granted certification for registered
nurses to specialize in midwifery. The
October 1' change came after three
years of lobbying by midwifery ad-
vocates. Now, the three Nurse Practice
Board (NPB) will establish guidelines
to implement the change.
MICHIGAN'S midwifery program is
expected to follow the guidelines set by
the nationwide American College of
Nurse Midwifery (ACNM). Ap-
proximately 25 states now have legal

registered nurses who graduate from a
one year ACMN training program or
receive a master's degree from a two
year graduate program in nurse mid-

aining is incorporated in parent-child
nursing courses and there is no
master's program .fin the plan-
ning," said Bea Kalisch, a member of
the University School of Nursing
curriculum committee.
"The concept of nurse-midwifery has
been around for a while," said
Elizableth Peckman, director of nursing
practices for the Michigan Nurses
Association. "Women should know the
skills and limitation of the person to
assist her and then make her own
choice," Peckman said.
It is the limited medical training that
worries many doctors and health of-

"I HAVE NO objection to the concept
of nurse-midwives as long as they work
in concert with practicing physicians,"
said George Nolan, doctor of obstetrics
and gynecology (OBGYN) at Univer-
sity Hospital. "We all have something
to gain by licensing nurse-midwives,
but there is a potential of them getting
into areas that may be too complicated
for them," he said.
Nolan said midwives should be
allowed to handle "normal" deliveries,
but only physicians should supervise
breech deliveries and other com-
"Delivery is a minor part of ob-
stetrics," said Ronald Zach, an OBGYN
physician in private practice in Detroit.
"Deliveries could be handled well by
midwives," he said.
THE ACNM is optimistic about the
success of nurse-midwives in
"Nurse-midwives are less expensive
than OBGYNs. They charge about $750
compared to $2,000 by doctors," said
Nancy McKenzie, membership coor-
dinator of ACNM.
Some OBGYNs work in conjunction
with nurse-midwives. Irk the case of a
normal pregnancy a doctor may assign
a midwife to a woman's care.
"COLLECTIVELY they provide good
service. There is less cost," said Dr.
George Attwater, director of com-
munity health programs for
Washtenaw County.
"Some doctors would rather deal
with the technological aspects of
pregnancy," said Nolan. Midwifery can
add a more humane approach to bir-
thing," said Eugenia Carpenter, chair-
person of the public health code
revision committee.

A dusty outpost in French West Africa enters WWI because of a yellowed
newspaper from home, which reveals that the conflict has been raging in
Europe for six months. Until this moment in 1915, the white colonials in the
outpost have been on congenial terms with a nearby, equally unaware Ger-
man settlement. Now they must attack their neighbors. More precisely-and
this touches one of the film's controllingironies-they decide their black
natives must attack the Germans' natives.
