Pomp, protest
welcome Teng
B) AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Surprised by screaming protesters,
President Carter welcomed China's Teng Hsiao-ping to the
United States yesterday and invited him to join in a "common
journey" tow rd peace and stability in Asia and the world.
Teng, unsmiling target of the protesters only yards away, said
Sino-American relations "are at a new beginning and the world
is at a new turning point." Speaking in Chinese, he said he ex-
pected "fruitful results" from his talks with the President.
DURING THE welcoming ceremony on the White House
south lawn, Carter and Teng seemed startled when two demon-
strators, standing among reporters and cameramen on a gran-
dstand facing the official platform about 15 feet away, twice.
disrupted their speeches by shouting epithets at the thinese vice
First a woman, identified later as Sonia Ransom, 26, of Seat-
tIe, Wash., broke into Carter's welcoming remarks to scream:
"Teng Hsiao-ping - you are a murderer!" She was dragged
away by Secret Service agents.
A few minutes later, a man with a camera around his neck
pulled some papers from his pocket and shouted excitedly:
"Traitor. Down with Teng Hsiao-ping. You cannot make this a
garden party!" The man was identified as Keith Kozimoto, 28,
of New York City.
THE MAN AND woman were arrested and charged with
disorderly conduct. The Revolutionary, Communist Party, a

B parole law in dispute

First in a two part series
Proposal B was overwhelmingly approved by Michigan's
electorate in last November's election and has been in effect
since December 10. Although it is too early to tell if it will be
effective in reducing the state's crime rate the new law is
being assailed by critics as being unfair, costly, and futile.
The new law is very simple in its application. No parole
will be granted to any prisoner convicted of any one of 80
enumerated crimes until at least the minimum sentence-has
been served.
L. BROOKS 'PATTERSON, the Oaklan County
Prosecuting Attorney who was the major catalyst in placing
the proposal on the ballot, believes that the majority of
violent crimes committed in Michigan are perpetrated by the
same'individual again and again. By eliminating parole for
the violent criminal Patterson forsees a reduction in the rate
of serious crime.
"Most people will agree that approximately 15 per cent of
the criminal population commit 65 per cent of violent
crimes," Patterson said in an interview last Friday. "If you
can sock it to them you diminish crime."
The Michigan Department of Corrections, which went on
record against the proposal long before its passage, said that
of all persons arrested for serious violent crime in the state,
on4, 13 per cent had previousprison terms. The department
already experiencing severe overcrowding in Michigan

prisons, opposes the law due to the increase in prison'
popultion it will produce.
Patterson said that statistics like these do not take into
account crimes a parolee commits but where there is no
"WE'VE ARRESTED MANY people who were on parole
who have confessed to hundreds of crimes they were not
caught for," Patterson emphasized.
Horace Gilmore, a Wayne County Circuit Court judge who
opposed the proposal prior to the election disagrees with Pat-
terson. "(Proposal B) was sold as a crime preventive; it
doesn't do this. It only affects those in jail."
He added that the "percentage of violent crimes commit-
ted on parole are relatively small."
Before the new law went into effect, all prisoners, except
those convicted of first degree murder, were entitled to the
provisions of "good time." Utilizing a statutory formula ap-
plied equally to all prisoners convicted of the identical crime,
the parole board figured out the amount of "good time" days
the prisoner had coming. If the prisoner behaved while in
prison, he would go before the parole board at a date substan-
tially earlier than the minimum sentence he had received in
court. The parole board could then grant the inmate early
release on parole.
A POINT OF CONTROVERSY evolving out of Proposal
B is that parole is still available to those who were convicted

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President Carter,
agreeing that newspaper heiress
Patricia Hearst "needs no further
rehabilitation" or punishment, acted
ydsterday to set her free this week.
Carter granted executive clemency
to Miss Hearst, perhaps the nation's
most celebrated federal prisoner, and
commuted her seven-year sentence for
bank robbery.
President's action, taken on the
recommendation of the Justice Depar-
tment, said Miss Hearst will be freed
Thursday from the federal prison at
Pleasanton, Calif. She has served 22
months of her sentence.
The White House said Miss Hearst,
who will be 25 next month, "has been
punished substantially" for her part in
the holdup of a San Francisco bank two
months after she was kidnapped by the
Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974.
The announcement said she "needs
no further rehabilitation, and it is the
consensus of all involved in her
proceedings and confinement that she
is no risk to the community and that, on
the contrary, she will be a law-abiding
TO WIN HER freedom, Miss Hearst
had to agree to a series of parole-like
conditions that she must observe for a
one-year period. Terry Adamson, a
Justice Department spokesman, said a
department official spoke to Miss
Hearst earlier in the day and won her
The conditions include requirements
that she not leave the country without
permission of the attorney general, that
she avoidanyone who has a criminal
record, that she keep no firearms and
that she submit to possible unspecified

her parents for her release, Miss Hear-
st announced in a taped message two
months later that she was changing her
name to Tania andstaying on to fight
alongside the SLA.
She eluded a widespread police sear-
ch for 18 months but was eventually
captured in San Francisco and convic-
ted of joining SLA members in' a 1974
robbery of the Hibernia Bank.

State program that aids private
colleges blasted by opponents


While tuition costs for students atten-

continue to rise, a recently-enacted
state voucher plan for private colleges
in Michigan is providing a valuable
tuition break for first-year students at-
tending those institutions.
The program, which began rather
quitely last fall, has upset many groups
across the state who find its implemen-
tation dangerous to the livelihood of the
state's'public colleges and universities.
