Daniel Weintraub may have provided his 50 students with a little more
information than he intended. Yesterday, Weintraub tested the
students' powers of extrasensory perception (ESP) as a means of in-
troducing them to statistics. While the students sat in their Mason Hall
classroom Weintraub went out in the hall and raised, at random, a
card with either a triangle or a squre on it. He shouted "Up" to the
students when a card was raised and they made a note of which card
they sensed was being raised. After 100 tests, the results were
tabulated and it was discovered that two of the students, statistically,
H have ESP. But it remains to be seen if, on the night before the mid-
term, the two who seem to communicate so well with Weintraub will
be able to predict his test questions.
Predicting the outcome of football games has always been a quick
way to make, or lose, a few bucks. But Pol. Sci. Prof. Arthur Miller has
found a different use for these often zealous efforts to forecast the out-
comes. He claims they will serve to illustrate trends in the way people
make predictions. These trends, he says, can be linked to trends in
election predictions. Miller will take about five forecasts on football
games for his American Political Processes class and analyze them at
the end of the football season. In yesterday's first round of predictions
most students picked Michigan, though one predicted a Michigan 7-
Notre Dame 24 score. But Miller ought to learn to control his ex-
pressions of Amazement at predictions unfavorable to the Wolverines,
let he damage the survey sample.
The story in Thursday's Daily concerning the House's rejection
of a draft registration proposal missed a decade through a
typographical error. The paragraph should have read: "The plan
would have required the president to beging Selective Service System
registration January 1, 1981 (not 1991, as originally reported), for
males who reached the age of 19 after December 31, 1981 (not 1991)."

WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI ad-
mitted yesterday that in 1970 it spread
gossip that actress Jean Seberg, who
committed suicide last week, had
become pregnant by a member, of the
Black Panther Party.
The bureau released an internal
memorandum which showed that it had
sought to discredit Seberg because she
supported the Black Nationalist cause.
"IT IS FELT that the possible
publication of Seberg's plight could
cause her embarrassment and serve to
cheapen her image with the general
public," the memorandum said.
Her husband at the time, Romaim
Gary, a French diplomat and author,
charged this week that the FBI had
destroyed Seberg's life by
disseminating the rumor about her
Government documents show that in
the memo, dated April 27, 1970, the Los
Angeles office of the FBI asked bureau

tress ... by advising Hollywood gossip
columnists in the Los Angeles area of
ON MAY 6, 1970, the FBI, then under
the direction of J. Edgar Hoover,
responded that the idea was a good one.
It noted that "Jean Seberg has been a
financial supporter of the Black Pan-
ther Party, and should be neutralized.
The current pregnancy by (blank
space) while still married affords an
opportunity for such effort."
On May 19, 1970, the Los Angeles
Times published an article by
Hollywood gossip columnist Joyce
Haber, which referred to an anonymous
"Miss A,'' an international movie
star who supported the "Black
Revolution" and who "is expec-
ting. . . Papa's said to be a rather
prominent Black Panther."
The Haber article provided a number
of details that matched Miss Seberg's
personal and professional life.
GARY, THE ACTRESS' former
husband, charged this week that "Jean
Seberg was destroyed by the FBI" bec-
cause of the publication of the rumor.
He said that in 1970, while they were in
the process of getting a divorce, she
read the article.
In an interview earlier this year,
Seberg said sh'e was seven months.
pregnant when she read the article and
the shock was so great that it caused
her to go into labor immediately and
the child was dead at birth.
Gary said that as a result she
"became psychotic" and "every year
on the anniversary of this stillbirth she
has tried to take her own life."
MISS SEBERG'S BODY was found
this week in her car near the Paris
apartment she had been sharing with
an Algerian actor. She had been
missing for nine days and had left a
suicide note for her 16-year-old son,

at-the request of her friend Julia, tried smuggling money into Nazi Germany

Do the HUD-stle
Those strident self-proclaimed disco-haters may be about to
receive a crushing blow. No, the Bee Gee's haven't struck again, this
time it's the federal government. A Pittsfield, Massachusetts com-
munity group has filed an application for a federally-financed disco
club. The group has presented their argument to the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that the proposed non-
alcoholic disco would deter 17-to-21 year olds from making dangerous
drive over mountains into New York where the drinking age is two,
years lower. At the public hearing held Tuesday, HUD official David
Jameson was told that even if one life were saved, the money would be
worth it. Jameson's reply was right on beat: "I am impressed with
what I've heard so far."
Sons and mothers
4 Now that Rose Kennedy has granted her son, Teddy, permission
to run for president, another mom, Lillian Carter, says she will vote
for Teddy. That is, of course, if the boys and girls in the Democratic
Party don't let her son Jimmy play. During a visit to New York City
Thursday, Mrs. Carter said Kennedy would get her vote, "if he is
decent and kind as he's always been." But, like any mother protecting
her own, she pointed out that Kennedy has not announced his can-
didacy and said, "I wish he wouldn't run. I'd hate to see him get beat."
Caught you napping
These days it's no longer enough to keep an eye on your purse
and your wallet, because even a simple yawn can invite thievery. At
least that's what a woman taking a bus trip in central Lima, Peru
found earlier this week. While nonchalantly ya)Vning during a tiring
journey, a robber snatched the woman's gold rimmed dentures before
she had a chance to complete her sign of fatigue. Well, if you haven't
learned to keep your mouth shut this should teach you!

As you walk by on your way to
classes, you might not have noticed the
looks of the Modern Languages
Building. However, this week an ar-
chitectural organization has honored
the edifice for outstanding architec-
tural quality, along with five other
Sharing awards from the Detroit
chapter of the American Institute of
Architecture (AIA) with the Modern
Languages Building (MLB) are the
Physics and Astronomy Building, the
School of Public Health II, the Den-
tistry Building, the Furstenberg
Student Study Center, and Oxford
THE INSTITUTE is a professional
organization, ranging in size from 700-
member firms in the Detroit chapter, to
32,000-member firms nationally. The
organization has a theme this year,
called the "Celebration of Architec-
ture" and designated this week "Ar-
As part of the festivities, the chapter
held a competition for buildings in the
southern part of the state. A group of
juries, members of the AIA from dif-
ferent parts of the country, judged the
nominations on the basis of a portfolio
of designs, plans, and photographs.
One clerical worker in the MLB said
she had not even heard of the award at
all and was very surprised.
"YOU CAN'T find your way around,
the ,.heating system doesn't work, the
cooling system doesn't work, the colors
are just grotesque. . . I could go on for
hours. I have to say one thing for it, I do
have a very nice view," the clerical
Richard Glissman, an AIA member
and University architect, said the cam-
pus buildings that were selected came
as no surprise. "We have about 10 to 12
plaques from various years, going back
to around 1965 for those buildings," he
In addition, Glissman mentioned the
Power Center, Regents Plaza and Ad-
ministration Building Complex, and the
Music School as missing from the list of
winners. "Of course, if older buildings
were part of the competition, the Law
School would be on the list," he added.
I EE I I A Dne4
All entries had to be constructed within
the last 20 years.
HERBERT JOHE, Assistant Dean of
the Architecture School, said the awar-
ds "make people sensitive to the fact
that some buildings are better than
others." "Architects are the last people
in the world to win honors - they're
modest people, but they know when
they have a good building," he said.
A spokeswoman for the Institute said
the list of educational buildings in the
competition ran high. Others in the
running included entries ranging from
the State Police Academy to an elemen-
tary school in Royal Oak.
According to the spokeswoman, the
University took the most awards,
"because the University has been quite
design-oriented in the past, particularly
the student center," she said, referring
to Furstenberg Study Center.
