"The fact that a recording of a con-
versation could be permanently stored
and then produced long after the par-
ticipants or their monitors forgot about
the conversation makes participant
recording just as intrusive of privacy as
participant monitoring, and subject to
the same restrictions on its use."

In a dissenting opinion, Appeals
Judge Robert Danhof said he believes
tape recording a conversation is less
objectionable than bugging or
monitoring.
The recording can be limited to
crucial exchanges and can be edited,
while monitoring is a veritable catch-
all, he said.
But the two-judge majority denied
that the search warrant requirement
would deprive police of a useful in-
vestigative tool.

"How different life in this state would
be if everyone had to expect that their
every conversation, their every
careless phrase or ill-advised
statement could be captured and
preserved for all time," the, majority
opinion said.
"Such a lifestyle is not what is expec-

NEW YORK (Reuter) - Cocaine
valued at three million dollars was
seized at Kennedy Airport after being
secreted in several pieces of luggage on
a flight from Venezuela, the Queens
District Attorney's office said yester-
day.
It was one of the largest shipments of
cocaine ever seized in the U.S.
New York City detectives seized six

kilos (13.2 pounds) of cocaine and
arrested five New Yorkers - two of
whom were aboard the Pan American
flight - on smuggling charges last
Sunday afternoon.
TWO DETECTIVES who had gone to
Caracas to follow the suspects were
also aboard the flight, according to
Queens District Attorney John Santuc-
ci.

Santucci said investigations showed
the cocaine was intended for'
distribution throughout the nor-
theastern United States.
The two suspects who were aboard
the Pan Am plane were identified as
Maria Vitale, 29, a legal secretary for a
Brooklyn law firm, and Neil Rullo, 32,
also of Brooklyn. Mor. Santucci said the
cocaine wa found hidden in the linings

of two pieces of luggage they had in
their possession.
Authorities stumbled upon what San-
tucci described as a "Venezuelan con-
nection" during an investigation into
several unsolved gangland-type
slayings, one of which involved a
retired New York City fireman.
All five suspects have been indicted
on drug smuggling charges.

Engineering teacher suspended
for hypnotizing college students

THURSDAY, FEB. 8 AT 8 PM.
HILL AUD.,ANN ARBOR
Reserved seats are $7.50, $6.50 and $5.50

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - A junior
college engineering professor has been
suspended and could be fired today
because he hypnotizes students to im-
prove their grades.
Manatee Junior College officials
claim the practice is inappropriate for
anyone other than a qualified doctor or;
psychologist.
PROFESSOR Arlie Lincks insists it's
beneficial.
The flap began back in 1972 in -this
quiet Gulf Coast city. Since then Lincks
has twice been cited for insubordination
for practicing hypnosis on campus. Two
months ago he was suspended. And the
board of trustees meets today to decide
whether to fire him.
LIncks said he has long been a prac-
ticing devotee of hypnotism and said it

has worked wonders with students with
below-average grades.
ONCE HYPNOTIZED, he said,
"They retain what they study and it
alleviates fear of the professor, of the
subject matter, of exams."
One believer is Ellen Richelieu, now a
second grade teacher at Oneco Elemen-
tary School near here.
"I was on academic suspension at the
college," she said.
"Professor Lincks got to the source of
the problem through hypnosis and
helped me to relax before the tests. I
could close my eyes and remember
everything I had studied. Before then,
everything went blank." {
MISS RICHELIEU said Lincks hyp-
notized her in his campus office.

Much of the conflict seems to be over
whether Lincks actually was ordered
not to practice hypnosis on campus.
Lincks, who has a iaster's degree in
education, was teaching ,a human
relations course in,1972 when he first
put to work the hypnosis he had picked
up over the years. He claims he was
qualified through a number of courses
in psychology. I
Dr. Wilson Wetzler, school president,
said Lincks was accused of insubor-
dination and put on probation in 1973.
By 1974, Wetzler said, Lincks was again
practicing hypnosis on campus. He was
accused this time of gross insubor-
dination. By the end of the year, he ap-
parently was obeying orders and his
contract was restored.

S. Moore
recaptured
ALDERSON, W. Va. (AP) - Sarah
Jane Moore, who attempted to kill then-
President Gerald Ford, was returned to
prison yesterday after only hours of
freedom, saying her capture represen-
ted a double failure.
Moore, who admitted she tried to kill
Ford in 1975 during a presidential trip
to San Francisco, scaled a 12-foot fence
surrounding the Federal Reformatory
-for Women late Monday. She and
another inmate were apprehended by
police about 30 miles away as they tried
to hitchhike.
"I did not escape to be caught,"
Moore said in an interview in Davis
Hall, which houses. the high-security
detention unit. She also said her cap-
ture . will be used by prison ad-
ministrators as an excuse to make life
harder for inmates. ' She has com-
plained loudly about conditions at the
prison.

quotation. It can't possibly be con-
strued as a political statement," he
said.
OTHER UNIVERSITY officials
agreed with Waller.
"We regret that no change in the
events scheduled as part of the Russian
Arts Festival is possible," said, Harold
Shapiro, University vice president for
academic affairs and representative to
the Committee on Institutional
Cooperation, which is circulating the
exhibition. "We did not intend to be
provocative to the Soviet government,
or to offend it. We are-extremely disap-
pointed that we are unable to share this
fine exhibition with the University
community," he added.
Deming Brown, professor of Slavic
languages and literatures and director
of the Center for Russian and Eastern
European Studies - which is coor-
dinating the Russian Arts Festival -
had stronger words for the Soviets.
"JOSEF BRODSKY is a splendid
Russian poet and a member of the
University of Michigan faculty staff,"
Brown said. "Solzhenitsyn is a great
Russian writer. I believe they are the
two finest representatives of Russian
literature who are writing today. It is

completely appropriate that their
names be associated with our Russian
Arts Festival," he said.
'Members of AKTSIA, a student
organization whose goal is to promote
human rights in the Soviet Union,
backed the University in the controver-
sy. "AKTSIA supports the University's
decision to hold the poetry reading by
Josef Brodsky as originally planned,"
said AKTSIA (the Russian word for ac-
tion) spokesman Allan Alter.
In a prepared statement,"Alter said,
"Although we too are disappointed that
the art exhibit will not be seen here, we
are pleased that the University has
-chosen not to become an extension of
Soviet oppression."
Brodsky himself was pleased by the
University decision to keep him in the
program. "If it's only a matter of me
not giving a reading, then it wouldn't be
so important," he said. "But it's not
me, it's a matter of principle. You
shouldn't let someone from the outside
dictate to you."

Radio Iran said three people were-
killed and 30 wounded in fighting bet-
ween royalists and republicans in the
southeastern city of Zahedan, near the
Pakistan border.
Yazdi gave a different version,
however.. He said enigmatically th'at
two senior Iranian officers were
responsible for the three deaths during
shooting by attackers disguised as
tribesmen.

"WE'RE AT A very critical and sen-
sitive stage," said Yazdi. "It is not as
rosy' as one might expect. There are
still remnants of the old regime of Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi still
operating and seeking to cause violen-
ce."
In Washington, meanwhile, the. U.S.
yesterday urged Bakhtiar and his op-
ponents to create a climate in which
Iranians can decide their political*
future.

the mysterious quality of truth. "RASHOMON is one of the greatest film
experiences-,a film one will see again because there are pleasures-as
well as pain-in looking into an abyss."-Pauline Kael. Academy Award,
