While watching WJBK-TV (Channel 2) Detroit's 6 p.m. evening
sports report, John Sbar heard sportscaster Jim Helman interviewing
people on what they thought of the Detroit Lions game. After Helman
finished talking to an old Jewish man, Sbar heard him remark, "I
should have asked for a bagel instead. Oh, I guess I shouldn't have said
that," and then laugh. Sbar called the station to complain and spoke to
the station manager, who said they'd received many calls. Helman
apologized at 11.
Segregation by pears
When they served up the food at the Detroit Economic Club Griffin-
Levin Senate race debate yesterday, the men were treated to a slab or
two of roast beef, a few potatoes, and a splash of gravy. The women,
however, were all given colorful fruit salads with lettuce, in lieu of the
beef. Someone must have decided that women like (or need?) to eat
protein and carbohydrate-free meals, while the males would
disapprove of fruit: We didn't notice whether or not the club decided to
use blue and pink chairs to segregate the predominantly male crowd.

Record number of whites
flee war-ridden Rhodesia

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) - More
whites fled embattled Rhodesia last
month than in any month since Prime
Minister Ian Smith broke relations with
Britain in 1965 and declared the colony
independent, government statistics
showed yesterday.
A total of 1,490 persons from the
260,000 white population left Rhodesia
in September. There are 6.7 million
blacks in the country.
Only 286 new white settlers entered
during the past month, a monthly
statistical report said.
IN AUGUST, 1,245 whites left, and a
year ago, in September 1977, the total
was 1,024.
Smith's unilateral declaration of
independence led to United Nations-
ordered economic sanctions against
Rhodesia. It also led to the outbreak of
the guerrilla conflict that has torn at
the nation for six years.
The white exodus has increased
steadily as black nationalist guerrilla
leaders have pushed shead with their
war against Smith's government,
which in the past seven months has
been biracial.
IN 1973, the first fullyear of the
conflict, Rhodesia recorded a net gain
of 1,928 whites. This was down sharply
from the record net influx of 9,407whites
two years before.
But since 1973, the pattern has

dramatically reversed itself until in the
first three quarters of this year there
has been a net loss of 7,522 whites.
Meanwhile, a moderate black
member of Smith's Salisbury
government publicly differed with the
prime minister over plans for holding
the country's elections based on
universal suffrage.
SMITH TOLD A Salisbury news

probably will have to be delayed for
"purely mechanical reasons" until

Smith's statement appeared to irk
Bishop Abel Muzorewa, who told
interviewers in London that anger
among blacks in Rhodesia is mounting
as a result.
"There will be a disasterous situation
if it turned out at the last moment that
Mr. Smith had chickened out," said
Muzorewa. He added that it was not for
Smith to decide on the timing of the
election, but for Rhodesia's interim

Dr. Diag endorses Griffin
r Dr. Diag, an Ann Arbor institution who spends most of his time atop
a garbage can in the center of campus, has announced his support of
Republican Senator Robert Griffin in his reelection bid. This crucial
endorsement was made last week in a mighty 30 minute oration in
which Diag explained why voters should pick Griffin. "Senator Griffin
is a worker, he goes out and gets things done. He is against taxes and
inflation, he authored the National Student Loan Program, and he is
against Proposition. D," explained Diag. Bruce Brumberg, Griffin's
Campus Coordinator, said he was extremely excited about the
endorsement. "Dr. Diag's support should be a big help in getting
Senator Griffin re-elected. He made it clear that Senator Griffin has
done a lot for the students. Now all we need is the endorsement of John
Belushi and Senator Griffin cannot lose."
Bullard eyes proposals
Speaking of candidates, State Rep. Perry Bullard addressed Trotter
House yesterday, focusing on the ballot proposals and state tax
reform. Bullard also explained his opposition to Proposal D, which
would hike the drinking age, stressing that it- is bad to use accident
statistics 'to determine a privilege. "We should consider the social
consequences, effects first .. Prohibition will cau: problems and
law breakers may increase as these privileges art, taken away."
Bullard said he supported Proposal A, a plan to call a constitutional
convention, and also repeated his staunch opposition to all three tax
reform proposals.
Test tube tot triumphs
Originality overshadowed tradition Saturday at the annual Bush-
Kelsey Halloween party at South Quad. Instead of only the usual
witches, goblins, and mummies, the costume contest came down to the
wire with a choice of a diaper-clad test tube baby, and transvestite
Frank N. Furter. Furter, of Rocky Horror Picture Show fame, was
dressed in an outfit Frederick's of Hollywood might be embarrassed to
sell. On hand to interview the winners were Howard Cosell and the
Invisible Man, who both reportedly were trying to forget the other one
was there.
