East Quad's no-talent
Residents of East Quad have offered Saturday Night Live star
Glda Radner exactly $21.83 to make a special appearance at their
dorm's no-talent show, "Saturday Night Skits-ophrenia." In a letter
sent to Radner, the former University student was offered a "once in a
lifetime chance to come back" to the Ann Arbor joys she left behind.
Several East Quadders signed Resident Director John Knox's name to
the letter, which, in addition to the cash, promised Radner an escort
service from Detroit Metro Airport. The letter promised the escorts_
would greet her in pink leotards. At the end of the letter, a check-off
box allowed Radner to reply to the letter, giving her only two options:
"I will be looking for two escorts in pink leotards, and 2) I cannot come
and am sending John Belushi instead." The letter was put on posters
advertising the no-talent show, slated for Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. There's no
word yet as to whether Gilda, or John, is coming.
Listen carefully
Failing to read directions will no longer be a good excuse for im-
properly filling out your income tax return - federal income tax in-
structions are now on cassette tapes. Step-by-step guidelines for
preparation of IRS Forms 1040 and 1040A have been put on tape by the
Internal Revenue Service and are available at the Ann Arboryublic
Library. The tapes can be checked out from the Circulation Depar-
tment and used at home. It's a little like bringing an accountant into
your own living room.
Joy riding
Seven-year-old Joy Holt of Colquitt, Georgia, may not be tall
enough to see over the dashboard, but the tike took to the streets in the
family car yesterday and drove four and one-half miles without a
single fender-bender. It seems Joy saw her mother Shirley faint while
.talking on the telephone, so the ingenius youngster grabbed her four-
year-old brother to navigate, jumped in the car, and headed into town
for help. Witnesses said Joy made the run without a hitch, and one
woman told the Holts she even saw the little one stop at an intersection
and wait for three cars to pass. She never had driver's training, but
then, maybe more drivers out on State Street should've-started at that
age. Ten-four, little baby!

Bhutto death sentence unheld

From AP and Reuter
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan - The
United States and other nations ap-
pealed yesterday for clemency for
deposed Pakistani Prime Minister
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto after his death sen-
tence was upheld by Pakistan's
Supreme Court in a split decision. Pro-
Bhutto demonstrations were reported
in various parts of the country.
The final decision on Bhutto's
execution may now rest with the coun-
try's military president, General Zia ul-
Haa, but Bhutto's lawyer said he was
not appealing to him for clemency.
GENERAL ZIA has said he would
abide by the Supreme Court's verdict if
it confirmed the death sentence im-
posed by the Lahore high court last
The 51-year-old ex-premier heard
details of the judgment from his wife,
Iranian-born Nusrat Bhutto, who left
house arrest to spend 30 minutes with
him in his death cell at the district jail
Several other countries, as well as
various international organizations,
have made pleas for Bhutto's clemen-
PRESIDENT CARTER sent a person
al appeal to Pakistani ruler Zia yester-
day to spare the life of former prime
minister Bhutto.
The State Department said Carter's
message was delivered to Zia by the

U.S. ambassador to Pakistan after the
Pakistan Supreme Court decision.
In a statement from London, British
Prime Minister James Callaghan said
yesterday he had asked Zia to commute
Bhutto's sentence.
"I BELIEVE the consequences of.
clemency - and General Zia is a very
wise man - will be more beneficial to
his country than carrying out the strict
application of the law," Callaghan said.
Turkish Prime Minister Bulent
Ecevit, in a telegram sent from
Ankara, also asked Zia to commute the
sentence and offered to let Bhutto live
-in exile in Turkey.
In New York, U.N. Secretary-
General Kurt Waldheim, for the third
time, yesterday appealed for clemency,
a U.N. spokesman said.
IN GENEVA, Amnesty International,
which opposes the death penalty on
humanitarian grounds, also asked for
clemencu because it said that Bhutto
had been convicted on evidence based
almost entirely on statements from
alleged accomplices of Bhutto.
Normally, executions take place bet-
ween six months and a year after the
appeal process has been completed, but
Bhutto's attorney, former Pakistani At-
torney General Yahya Bakhtiar, ex-
pressed fears that the military ad-
ministration might hang Bhutto without
The Supreme Court said the defense

fears were unwarranted because the
defense had won a seven-day stay of
execution to allow time for submission
of petitions for clemency.
BUT THE COURT said it could not
extend the staying order until the
seven-day period expired.
A stay of execution will provide time,
the defense hopes, for international
pressure to build for Zia to commute
the sentence.
Bhutto has agreed to a review
petition being lodged, Bakhtiar said.
Informed sources said the decision of
clemency may depend on the attitude of
Saudi Arabia and Pakistan's major
