Take ten
Pi Beta Phi sorority announced on Dec. 4, 1968 it would be unable to
rush in January, 1969 because the Grand National Council sent the
campus chapter a letter refusing to allow the sorority to drop the use
of alumnae recommendations. A Panhel resolution prohibiting
alumnae recommendations in order to counter bias in rushes didn't sit
well with the national organization. Also that day, students striking for
autonomous black studies department among other black causes
marched off the San Francisco state College campus after a round of
confrontation with police.

Two 16-cent installments
It was a case of the tax assessor's office goling that extra step.
Robert and Mildred sears of East Providence, R.I., owed 32 cents tax
on their 1975 car. Instead of being billed the entire amount, they got a
bill for two 16-cent installments. "They must be crazy," said Mrs.
ESears recalling her reaction when the first installment bill arrived.

WASHINGTON (AP) - As
identification of' those in the mass
suicide-murder on Guyana continues,
authorities say many questions
probably will never be answered -
including how many of the cultists tool
their own lives and how many were
actually killed.
Furthermore, medical, legal and
insurance experts say, the unanswered
questions very likely will lead to future
court fights over insurance settlements
because of the uncertainly about the
specific cause of death.
AS OF , SATURDAY, military
pathologists at Dover Air Force Base in
Delawarehad fingerprinted all 911
bodies brought back from Jonestown,
prepared nearly 800 of them for burial
and identified 255.
But when the bodies arrived they
were already so decomposed that
fingerprints in many cases may be
unsuitable and nearly one-third of the
victims may never be positively
identified, Justice Department officials
said.
State and federal governments have

ruled out sutopsies for all but seven of
the corpses. Because of this, some
leading pathologists said, it will be all
but impossible to solve the mystery of
what really happened that fateful day
- November 18 - at the Peoples
Temple commune at Jonestown.
SURVIVORS SAID the commune
members committes mass suicide by
drinking a cyanide potion, some of
which was found left in a metal pot. But
the survivors also told of a ring of
armed security guards, giving rise to
rampant speculation that some cultists,
perhaps even large numbers, may have
been shot or forced to take the poison.
"You never will be able to prove that
those who drank this mixture did so
voluntarily or involuntarily," said
Michael Abbell of the Justice
Department's criminal division.
A number of forensic pathologists
interviewed said signs of small caliber
bullet wounds or beatings could easily
go undiscovered without at least
limited autopsies.
ASSISTANT Attorney General Philip
Heimann told reporters that although

the department wants to find out as
much as it can about the deaths, they
are of marginal interest to the U.S.
government because it has jurisdiction
only over the murder of Rep. Leo
Ryan by cult members.
Federal law gives the government
jurisdiction over the murder of a
member of Congress and murderor
attemtped murder of a State
Department representative in another
country.
However, the department 1st week

ordered autopsies on seven bodies
the DRev. Jim Jones, the cult's leader,
two of his top lieutenants and four cult
members picked at random - to "put
the question to rest" and hopefully head
off future speculation.
SOME FORENSIC pathologists said
they believe at least limited individual
examination and tests should have been
sonducted on each body to attempt to
determine conclusively how each cult
member died.

TWO WOMEN
In the style that marked his first postwar films and most notably The Bicycle
Thief, Two Women is one of the final examples of deSica's stark neo-realism.
SOPHIA LOREN and ELEANORA BROWN star as a Roman mother and daughter
fleeing to the country to escape the Allied bombings of World War 11. After
they are raped by Morrocan soldiers in a harrowingly dramatized sequence,
the women eventually reach a new understanding of each other. Loren
