Police Capt. J. W. Hilliard said of-
ficers had conferred with the city at-

of the permit, which gave the
precise location.of the rally. Accor-

advised that the permit was a public

SEVERAL carloads of white men
drove up to the anti-Klan rally
Saturday morning and opened fire,
killing five persons and wounding
nine others. Fourteen persons have
been charged in the shootings.
Hilliard refused during a news
conference to comment on whether
police kept the man under sur-
veillance after he got the parade
permit and would not elaborate on
the man's identification.
HIlliard also said authorities were
still searching for Jack Wilson
Fowler, 27, of Winston-Salem in con-
nection with the case. Fowler is
charged in warrants issued this
week with four counts of murder and
one count of conspiracy to murder.
Earlier, the Communist Workers
Party, the small leftist group that
organized the fatal rally, vowed that
its members would be-armed during
a Sunday funeral procession. The
party also said it would file a lawsuit
charging law enforcement agencies
with planning the ambush.

tists are refusing to cooperate in the

Sally Bermanzohn, a party member
whose husband, Paul, remained
hospitalized yesterday with wounds
suffered in the shooting. His con-
dition was listed as satisfactory.
Ms. Bermanzohn announced in
nearby Winston-Salem the party
plans to file a $500 million damage
suit against the FBI, the State
Bureau of Investigation, the city of
Greensboro and the Greensborro
Police Department.
U.S. ATTORNEY H.M. "Mickey"
Michaux of Greensboro said 24 to 30
FBI agents have been working on
the case. He said it is part of a
nationwide investigation of the Ku
Klux Klan launched under orders
from the White House.
Michaux said federal officials will
look at allegations by the American
Civil Liberties Union that the police
response to the shootings was
Michaux noted, however, that
local authorities were in the position
on the day of the shooting of being
"damned if they did or damned if
they didn't."
Police spokespersons said the
rally organizers told them they
didn't want police at the site. Of-
ficials said the demonstrators were
chanting, "Death to the Pigs," so
police retreated to a spot several
blocks away.
Michaux said a federal force will
be in Greensboro this weekend for
the planned funeral march for the
five killed.

to Belcher, who relayed the consensus
to Korn-Ferry.
THE SAME FIVE or six candidtes
were recommended consistently by
members of the citizens committee, the
Democrats and the Republicans,
Belcher said. Korn-Ferry, he ex-
plained, notified the candidtes earlier
this week on the basis of this consensus
even though recommendations had not
been submitted by all of the coun-
cilmembers. As additional recommen-
dations have been received Belcher
said he has relayed the information to
the firm in Los Angeles.
Korn-Ferry received 60 applications
for the $50,000 a year position. On the
basis of a job profile prepared by Coun-
cil in August, the firm screened out the
twenty resumes they judged most
Council is scheduled to interview five
finalists for the post Saturday morning
at Campus Inn. The session, which will
begin at 8:00 a.m., will be open to the
public. A representative from Korn-
Ferry will present a detailed report of
each candidate's background before
the interviews.
Stavin, a Korn-Ferry spokesman said
the finalists had already been notified
and arrangements had been made for
them to be in Ann Arbor on Saturday.
The names of the five finalists will be
released to the media Friday afternoon,
according to Belcher.
A committee of nine citizens appoin-
ted by the mayor met with Slavin two
weeks ago to review the twenty
resumes. They were asked to submit
their comments about the candidates to
the mayor.
Council is scheduled to make a final
choice before the end of the month. The
city administrator, scheduled to take
office January 1, formulates the city's
budget and supervises the operations of
most of the city's offices and depar-
LATTA ALSO said that Belcher had
made a special effort to solicit the

opinions of local businessmen about the
resumes even before some coun-
cilmembers had copies.
Belchr said he had shown "a few"
businessmen the resumes but said he
did not consier this a violation of the
plans for the selection process. The'
businessmen were asked to comment
as ad hoc members of his citizen's
committee, he explained.
Morris and Susan Greenberg (D-
First Ward) picked up their copies of
the resumes on Friday. But Earl
Greene (D-Second Ward) said he did
not know the resumes were available
until Sunday evening and he finally saw
them Monday afternoon.
GREENE SAID HE did not submit
his recommendations until yesterday.
"I hope mine (recommendations) will
be considered," he added.
"I have not felt involved at all. . . I've
done what I was asked to do by the
mayor," Greene said.
"I have concerns about the process
too," said Republican Councilman
David Fisher (Fourth Ward). He said
yesterday he was not aware that the
finalists had already been notified. He
said he planned to take his recommen-
dations to the mayor this morning.
Councilman Edward Hood (R-Fourth
Ward) picked up the resumes from his
city hall mail box Friday afternoon. He
said he felt all of the councilmembers
had had an equal opportunity to provide
input into the search process.

PIRGIM: "Michigan's
Nuclear Moratorium Bill"
Guild House, 02 Monroer

The Ann Arbor Film CooperatiVe Presents at Aud. A:
(Yasujiro Ozu, 1953) 7 & 9:30 AUD. A
A quietly brilliant film by a master of contemplative cinema. The story concerns
an elderly couple who journey to Tokyo to visit their growing children. Using
this simple story, Ozu constructs a restrained and touching meditation on the
family, changing social patterns, and alientation. Although Ozu is often consid-
ered uniquely Japanese, his style and themes transcend national boundaries.
Tokyo Story was voted one of the ten best films of all time in the SIGHT
AND SOUND International Critics' Poll. In Japanese, with subtitles.

kind of life they (the cadavers) had,
and what they did," said Bill Frederick,
a graduate student in Anatomy, who
has taught the course twice.
"You have to dehumanize (the
cadavers) to do what we do and joke to
keep your mind off what you're doing.
It's pretty necessary because it's a
really morbid thing," he said.
plastic surgeon r#eceires
top research award
A University of Michigan plastic
surgeon has received the top research
award from the American Society of
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for
a new technique to provide closely-
matching donor tissue in reconstruction
of breasts and for head and neck
Eric D. Austad, M.D., University
clinical instructor in surgery, received
first-place honors in a clinical research
competition at the Society's recent an-
nual meeting in Toronto.
THE TECHNIQUE involves use of an
expanding implant placed under nor-
mal skin on the chest, face or neck next
to the reconstruction site. In effect, the
body produces closely matching "ex-
tra" skin in the same way that skin ex-
pands during periods of heavy weight
gain or pregnancy.
Dr. Austad, who practices at Univer-
sity Hospital and at Henry Ford
Hospital, Detroit, said the technique is
particularly applicable in rebuilding
areas lost to cancer surgery. The new
skinl is almost identical to that which
was lost and is a much better match
than using tissue from other parts of the
body such as the back, as is commonly
done. There also is no scarring of the
site'from which the donor skin is taken.
Dr. Austad, a University of Michigan
Medical School graduate, is a native of
Escanaba, Mich. His co-author of the
award-winning research paper was
Gregory Rose.

noted "an apprehension about starting
the course. But once you start it's no
big deal."
He added, "You get used to it very
quickly. You have to approach it with
the idea that you're there to learn."
After dissection, the remains are
placed in a container. They are then
cremated, and the ashes are sent to the
donor's family, Frederick said.
Unclaimed bodies are cremated as
well, and the ashes are sent to the
University's burial . plot in Superior.

The University absorbs the cost for
transporation, embalming, cremation,
and, in the case of unclaimed bodies,
burial, Oelrich said.
