EL CENTRO, California - A strong
earthquake, followed by six after-
shocks, shook towns along the western
end of the U.S.-Mexican border late
yesterday, killing one person and in-
juring at least 70, police reported here.
They did not have details of damage
or casualties on the mexican side of the
border, but said damage there had been
described as considerable.
registered 6.4 on the Richter scale and
shook buildings in Los Angeles, 220
miles to the northwest, started six fires,
buckled roads, caused gas leaks, broke
hundreds of windows and caused
cracks in buildings, police said.
The epicenter of the earthquake was
placed 10 miles east of Calexico, a
small town five miles north of the bor-


east on~e
der and 20 miles southwest of here,
seismologists at the California Institute
of Technology reported.
. Most of the injured were not seriously
hurt and some were allowed home after
being treated in hospitals, police said.
SOME TELEPHONE services in Los
Angeles were interrupted for a short
time and office buildings in the city cen-
ter were shaken.
In San Diego, 100 miles west of
Calexico, a telephone operator said
when the earthquake struck, her chair
was moved several feet along the
ground as though someone had pushed
"You could feel the desks move.
Signs hanging from chains were
swaying," said Bob Crowe, city editor
for the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Political activists Jane Fonda and
Tom Hayden last night appealed for
stronger consumer involvement in
:r large corporations, before an overflow
crowd of more than 4,000 at Hill
y Auditorium.
Hayden continually lashed out at the
power wielded by company executives
at the expense of employees and of
HE SAID HE wants corporate "boar-
ds of directors opened up from below in
a democratic process" so that
representatives could be recalled.
Hayden compared the, current unfair
and undemocratic methods by which
corporate directors are chosen to the
way the Soviet Union picks which
leaders to sit in the Kremlin.
"It's a one-party system in the cor-
porate bureaucracy," Hayden said.
"The Board of Directors as it's called
v ",here or the Politburo as it's called
there. That's what's happened to us in
s x the name of free enterprise."
HAYDEN AND Fonda repeated the

have been voicing across the eastern
portion of the nation since their 50-city
tour began in New Yor4 City last mon-

He said a massive "psychological

people is needed to make them realize
that the era of cheap energy and
American world dominance is over.
"WE ARE ONLY beginning to realize

Hayden said, ". . .because we will

Assembly won't act
on prof's tenure case

The faculty Senate Assembly voted
yesterday by a narrow margin to- take
no further action in the case of
Jonathan Marwil, the humanities
professor in the Engineering College
who claims he was unjustly denied a
tenure review.,
. Fembers of the Assembly cited the
fact that the case is currently pending
in a federal court as their reason for not
taking any further steps on Marwil's
THE COURT case did not necessarily
have to affect the Senate's decision,
however, because Marwil has said that
he would drop his suit if he were offered
a tenure review.
Marwil, who has been off the Univer-
sity payroll since June, exhausted all
channels for appeal within the Univer-
sity before he took his case to court.
Marwil said yesterday he was "not
surprised" at the Assembly's decision.
"They (the Assembly members) were
faced with several choices and they

took the safe way out," he said. Marwil
was present when the vote was taken,
but had been asked to leave the meeting
during the Assembly's hour-long, off-
the-record discussion of the case.
THE SENATE also opted not to ac-
cept a statement on Marwil's situation
which was drafted yesterday by the
Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs (SACUA). According to
that resolution, members of SACUA
regretted that the matter had not been
resolved internally and asserted that
Marwil had a "reasonable expectation"
of a tenure review.
"By pursuing the case, we're saying
we have something new to add," said
Assembly Chairman Richard Corpron,
a professor in the dental school. "I
think that both the Senate and SACUA
have already stated their position," he
The majority of SACUA members
have expressed their support for Mar-
wil. In addition, the Senate Advisory

Council OKs

pinball ordinance

The need for a program to deal with
street crime in Ann Arbor was
discussed last night as City Council
passed an ordinance to license city pin-
ball establishments and set their
closing times.
Businesses which maintain five or
more coin-operated game machines are
now required to purchase an annual
license for $50 and close at 2 a.m.
Establishments already licensed to sell
alcoholic beverages are excluded from
this ordinance and will not be required
to buy the license.
THE CLOSING time was set at 2 a.m.

after a discussion of the harmful effects
of a midnight closing requirement on
business at some of the city's pinball
establishments. ,
Only one arcade, Tommy's Holiday'
Camp on Packard Rd., is affected by
the hours restriction; all of the other
arcades now close at midnight or 1 a.m.
Tommy's, owned by Norman and
Sheila Calfin, closes at 3 a.m. on Friday
and Saturday. Although the late hours
are popular with University students
and faculty, Calfin said, "The two
o'clock closing is fair. They're (Coun-
cil) trying to solve a problem . . . it
makes me feel good."

"I'd like to see them come up with
alternatives" to deal with the teenagers
who congregate outside of some of the
other pinball establishments," Calfin
.MAYOR LOUIS Belcher said he
proposed the ordinance because of
prostitution, drugs, and loitering
problems outside of some of the city's
pinball arcades.
In the past year police have had to
deal with several problems, especially
at the corner of State and William
Streets. Focus Pinball is located at that
corner and Mickey Rat's is one-half
block west on William:

The owner of Mickey Rat's, Dave
Maurer, said he was in favor of having
more foot police assigned to the area.,
"Without this, the area (State and"
William) is in trouble," he said.
. Belcher said it is important to close
the arcades before the bars' close at 2
a. m.
Although she voted in favor of the or-
dinance, councilwoman Leslie Morris
(D-Second Ward) caled the ordinance
a "pious fraud." She said the problems
outside the establishments are not the
responsibility of the businesses, but are
the social, municipal problem.

3 more Americans
win Nobel Prizes

A new structure intended to solve
:crowded conditions in the Track and
-Tennis Building is scheduled to be
completed next fall, pending ap-
proval from the Regents this week.
The proposed building would be
similar to the current facility an
design, but would be slightly larger.
The estimated cost of the structure
is $1.6 million, with the money to
come from athletic department fun-
THE NEW fieldhouse would be
built on Ferry Field, just south of the

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) I- Two
Americans and a Pakistani who took up
where Einstein left off in searching for
a key to the universe won the Nobel
Prize in physics yesterday. An
American and West German who found
ways to produce new drugs, pesticides,
and other important organic compoun-
ds were awarded the chemistry prize.
It made 1979 another year of U.S.
domination of the three Nobel science
prizes. Four of the seven laureates are.
Americans, the same proportion as in
BUT THE happiest winner may have
been chemistry laureate Georg Wittig,
an 82-year-old retired professor of West
Germany's Heidelberg University.
"When the phone call came from
Stockholm the Herr Professor did not
want to believe it at first," his
housekeeper told a reporter. "He once
hoped for the prize many years ago but
had given it up long ago."
The physics winners were two Har-
vard professors, Sheldon Glashow and
Steven Weinberg, both 46-year-old New
York City natives, and Professor Abdus
Salam, 53, a physicist working in
Britain and Italy who is the first
Pakistani to win a Nobel.

WITTIG'S co-winner in chemistry
was Professor Herbert Brown, 67, a
London-born U.S. citizen teaching at
Indiana's Purdue University.
The selections were made by the
Swedish Royal Academy of Science..
Each prize carries a stipend of $190,000
to be shared among its winners.
The three physicists were honored for
highly theoretical work on a fundamen-
tal aspect of science - the forces that
hold matter together.

the American show of the same name. A crew from down
under has been in Ann Arbor since last Wednesday filming
the band's practices and its performance at Saturday's
football game. According to the show's American represen-
tative Carol Pierce, the band will be featured because, "we
have nothing in Australia similar to university bands. I
chose Michigan because it's one of the big schools and has a
reputation for a fine band." "60 Minutes" correspondent
Ray Martin said his research has proven the Michigan
Band to be so good the 15-minute segment has been titled
"The Best Band in the Land". Martin said he was familiar

Sunday night, an effort was made to go the "paint the rock"
routine one better-someone set it on fire. The Ann Arbor
Fire Department was called to the scene, as the tem-
porarily white rock rested quietly while flames burned
from underneath it on all sides. By the time firefighters.
arrived, the flames were reduced to smoldering embers of,
lighter fluid, so they just kicked them around a minute and
