Cheating prospers
Cheating, once a calculated, fine art of sneakery at the University
apparently has gone beyond clever cribbing and has gotten downright
outrageous. Students in a political science course last term were
shocked to find that a question worth 50 per cent of the final exam was
on an obscure piece of reserved reading that no one had done. After a
brief moment of initial panic, everyone dove into the test, resigning
themselves to trying to bs their way through the question-that is,
everyone except one individual who was seen slipping his I.D. card
from his jacket into his back pocket, and nonchalantly leaving the
auditorium with only 20 minutes left to complete the exam. Ten
minutes later, he quietly snuck back into the room, virtually unnoticed
and trying to conceal the fact that he was terribly out of breath. He
returned to his seat and began to write like crazy, now that he had ap-
parently finished that reserve reading he had forgotten to do before
the exam. We heard that one chemistry student was even gutsier. He
kept his book open during an entire exam, and not surprisingly, the TF
refused to accept his paper. "Do you know who I am?" the student
protested. "No," replied the TF. "Good," said the student, stashing
his exam into the middle of a pile of finished tests.
Psychology 171 mass meetings
Students enrolled in sections 1-10 of Psychology 171 may attend
the mass meetings listed below to register their ranked choices for
particular secti,>ns of the course. This information, which states when
and where specific instructors would be teaching the course this term,
was not available during early registration. Since different teaching
fellows operate the course differently and appeal to different students,
the Department of Psychology allows students to choose the instructor
of their choice where possible. Class co-ordinator Steve Taylor said
students will be asked to list several choices (when possible) for the
instructor they want during specific meeting times. First choices will
be honored if possible, Taylor said. The times of the mass meetings
listed below are the same times the individual classes will meet:

Purse snatcher pursuit
Cincinnati Police Officer Paula Brand hoped to catch purse
snatchers during the holidays so she went undercover, dressed in an
old, tattered coat, carrying a cane and a decrepid purse. Tucked into
her purse was a rat who was to jump out and surprise only theif who
opened the pocketbook. But apparently her disguise was a bit over-
done, because Brand and her rodent were not once accosted. Sgt. Tim
Jones said the costume "may have been too ugly." The rat, relieved of
active duty, was released by Ms. Brand.

CIA planned mind-control killing

WASHINGTON (UPI)-The CIA once
developed a secret mind-control plan to
induce an unwitting foreign official to
assassinate one of his country's leaders
or, "if necessary," an American of-
ficial abroad, newly released documen-
ts show.
The chilling plan was part of
Operation Artichoke, the intelligence
agency's 23-year program of ex-
perimenting with exotic poisons and
drugs for use in mind and behavior con-
trol.
The three-page, 25-year-old
memorandum detailing the
assassination plan was obtained by
American Citizens for Honesty in
Government under a Freedom of In-
formation suit.
THE CITIZENS group is sponsored
by the Church of Scientology, an
organization that has been feuding for
W

years with the FBI, the Internal
Revenue Service and a number of other
federal agencies over its tax-exempt
status.
Recent congressional investigations

visited (blank) during period 8 January
to 18 January 1954.
"The purpose of the visit was to give
an evaluation of a hypothetical
problem, namely: Can an individual of

.. it was proposed that the individual could be sur-
reptitiously drugged . .. (and) induced to perform the
act of attempted assassination at some later date."
--From a recently released CIA document

have found that the CIA plotted the
assassination of Cuban leader Fidel
Castro and some other foreign leaders.
The CIA says none of the plans was
carried out. And it called the mind con-
trol plans purely hypothetical.
THE NEWLY released, censored
memo shows, "The Artichoke team

blank descent be made to perform an
act of attempted assassination involun-
tarily under the influence of Ar-
tichoke?"
"Essential elements" of the problem
were outlined in the memo:
"IT WAS proposed that an individual
of (blank) descent, approximately 35-

years-old, well-educated, proficient in
English and well-established socially
and politically in the (blank) gover-
nment be induced under Artichoke to
perform an act, involuntarily, of at-
tempted assassination against a
prominent (blank) politician or, if
necessary, against an American of-
ficial."
A handwritten footnote indicates the
plan was "similated only."
"Because the subject is a heavy
drinker," it continued, "it was
proposed that the individual could be
surreptiously drugged through the
medium of an alcoholic cocktail at a
social party, Artichoke applied and the
subject induced to perform the act of
attempted assassination at some later
date.
". .After the act of attempted
assassiantion was performed, it was
assumed that the subject would be
taken into custody by fhe (blank)
government and thereby 'disposed of.'
BUT THE Artichoke panel concluded
the project could only be used under
''crash conditions" because of these
limitations:
-"The subject would be an involun-
tary and unwitting subject.
-"We would have none, or, at most,
very limited physical control and
custody of the subject.
-"Access to the subject is strictly
limited to a social engagement among a
mixed group of both cleared and un-
cleared personnel."
The memo added, however, that the
Artichoke team would undertake the
problem -"in spite of the operational
limitations" if there were "crash con-
ditions."

Asexualization asked
for child molesters'

PORTLAND, Maine (AP)-Proposed
legislation to permit surgical alteration
of the sex organs of persons convicted
of some child molesting charges is un-
der review by the state Attorney
General's office.
Chinese
'Gang' trial
unlikely
PEKING (UPI)-The widow of
Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the rest of
the "Gang of Four" may never be
brought to public trial for the crimes at-
tributed to them, a Chinese legal expert
said Saturday.
"There has never been a public trial
of chieftains who represented a wrong
line in the Chinese Communist party,"
said Chang Chung-lin, a deputy director
of the Law Research Institute of the
China Academy of Social Sciences.
Chang said Mao origianlly established
the policy.
Mao's wife, Chiang Ching, a former
Shanghai movie actress, sought power
after her husband died in 1976. But with
her associates-Wang Hung-wen,
Chang Chun-chao and Yao Yen-
yuan-she lost out to China's present
leaders, headed by Mao's successor,
Hua Kuo-feng. They have been out of
public view since, rumored under house'
arrest.
SPECIAL BEAR
CARMICHAEL, Calif. (AP) - Ruth
Pearson saw a huge, brown teddy bear
on display in a store and fell in love with
it.
"I really felt we needed it at Inver-
ness," she said, referring to a private
school she runs here. But the bear was
expensive - $300.
"Then," she recalled, "my husband
and I ran into two fathers of children at
our school. They asked what there was
to see around these parts. I quickly
steered them to the store and told them
to look at that marvelous bear and to
buy it for the school. Three days later I
got a phone call. Bless them. They
bought if for us."

State Rep. Joyce Lewis, the mother of
three grown children, this week filed
notice of her intentntointroduce the
proposal in the Legislature.
Her intent, she said, is to protect
children from "adhorrent crimes," and
not simply vengeance.
"IT'S GOING to be a deterrent in one
way," Mrs. Lewis said. "Certainly it
will prevent a molester from molesting
again.''
Assistant Attorney General Stephen
Diamond is reviewing the bill, prefiled
Wednesday. He declined to speculate on
its constitutionality.
Mrs: Lewis, a four-term legislator,
said the law "may be considered cruel
and unusual punishement," so she has
delayed further action pending
Diamond's ruling on its legaility.
THE BILL CALLS for the
"asexualization" of persons convicted
of gross sexual misconduct involving
children less than 14 years old.
Diamond said he had seen old laws
referring to "asexualization," but none
in recent years.
Mrs. Lewis, Brian Blaisdell of the
LegislativedResearch Officesand
Diamond said they knew of no states
where such punishment is currently in
force.
PUNISHMENT FOR male offenders
would involve surgical removal of the
nerves within the penis that control a
man's ability to have an erection, said
Blaisdell.
Women would be punished by
removal of their ovaries: The removal
of the ovaries would not necessarily
prevent a woman from having sex, he
said. However, a lack of hormones
produced by the ovaries would cause
the woman's vagina to lose its
elasticity, making intercourse painful.
Mrs. Lewis said the bill has gotten a
mixed response from lawmakers.

Estate taxes avoidable
prof. tells realtors
Proper planning can now eliminate
the need for modest estates to pay any
estate tax at all, Prof. Karl Pearson
said in an address to the Alabama
Realtors Institute, the University
announced.
"If you die in 1978, the first $134,000 of
your estate is now exempt from the
federal estate tax," he explained. "If
you leave your property to your spouse,
one-half or $250,000, whichever is
greater, is exempt. The first $100,000 in
property you give to your spouse during
your lifetime is now exempt from the
gift tax. If your lifetime gifts to your
spouse are over $200,000, only one-half
of this expense is subject to the gift tax.

Would Newton gravitate
toward Cinci?
Like the apple gravitated toward Newton.
You see, Newton was the-beneficiary of a bump of enlightenment.
Undoubtedly, he would have been amenable to other enlight-
ening stimuli as well. For example, the hearty, full-bodied flavor of
Cinci. The smooth and easy swallow. The fascinating, long-
lasting head. As thousands of others after him, it is virtually a
mathematical certainty that he would have said, 'It's too good
to gulp.

... but it's easier at Ulrich's.
Ulrich's really tries to make
book rush less of a hassle.
They have people who'll
find your books for you.
They'll buy your old books.
They keep a full stock
of all the other supplies you
need. And you won't go
broke in exchange for the
convenience, either.
Why not try Ulrich's this
year? It could be easier
for you.
