Crisis line training starts
By HOWARD WITT
Volunteer training sessions are now
beginning for the SOS Crisis Center, a
phone and walk-in counseling and
referral service based in Ypsilanti.
The crisis line, which has been
operating continuously since 1971, last
year received close to 7000 calls from
the Washtenaw County area.
IN ADDITION to counseling drug,
runaway, and alcohol problems, the
center also helps with food and housing
difficulties as well as domestic violence
situations. "We can even help find a
place to just crash," said Ronda Lin-
dholm, an employee at the center.
"People get the impression that this
is a drug problem center, or that they
have to have a major crisis to call, but
many times people call just to talk,"
The center is unique in that it staffs a
mobile "on-call" team, which responds
to a variety of calls for help.
One woman, for example, called to
report a neighbor who was screaming
.hysterically. When the on-call team
arrived at the given address, there was
no person visible. It was almost ac-
cidentally that the team found the
woman, who was then unconscious
from a drug overdose, several doors
away-someone screamed for help as
they were leaving.
CONFIDENTIALITY IS stressed by
Lindholm, who explained that the cen-
ter is not required to report any infor-
mation to police or other authorities.
The center offers three volunteer

PEKING - Vice Premier Teng
Hsiao-ping was quoted yesterday as
urging the United States to expand its
naval strength in the Pacific to offset
the growth of Soviet naval and air- for-
ces in the area. '
He also called for beefed-up military
preparedness in Japan and possible
cooperation among the Southeast Asian
nations of Thailand, the Philippines,
Indonesia and Singapore for defense
against what he views as a Soviet
THE 74-YEAR-OLD Teng, China's
army chief of staff, met for two hours
with four U.S. senators studying the
military situation in the Pacific. He told
them he is more concerned with Soviet
activities in the Pacific than with the
million Russian troops on the China-
Soviet borders, they said.
Sen. Sam Nunn, (D-Ga.), chairman of
the senatorial task force, told a news
conference afterwards that China does
not view Soviet ground forces in the Far
East "as large enough to undertake a
massive, decisive invasion of China."
Sen. John Glennr.(D-Ohio), said that
Teng told the senators that to be suc-
cessful, a Soviet invasion would require
between four and five million soldiers.
Teng reportedly added that the prin-
cipal focus of Soviet military power is
in Europe and the Middle East.
THE SENATORS added that Mr.
Teng reaffirmed in yesterday's
meeting that China wanted a peaceful
reunification with Taiwan.
But the possibility of the use of force
was not renounced "in the belief that
such a renunciation would reduce the
prospects for Taiwan entering into
serious negotiations," the senators'
"THE CIRCUMSTANCES where for-
ce might be used include: one, an in-
definite refusal by Taiwan to enter into
negotiations and, two, an attempt by
the Soviet Union to interfere in
Taiwanese affairs. This latter
possibility, however, is regarded as

OBSERVERS estimate a million or
more persons were executed or died of
hunger, exhaustion and disease during
the forced evacuation. The fall of the
regime did not appear to sadden 7,000
Cambodian refugees who fled to camps
in Thailand after 1975.
"Tell the Thai authorities to bring Pol
Pot to us at the camp," one refugee told
a reporter in Thailand. "We'll make
him into fermented fish sauce."
The new government promised to
restore democratic rights, reinstate
Buddhism, and move toward "peace,
freedom, non-alignment and

A free-wheeling, delightful, light-hearted 1930's comedy, written by the master
of such comedies, Preston Sturges. It all starts when millionaire Edward Arnold
throws his wife's mink coat out the window and it lands on working girl Jean
Arthur. Featuring automated luneonettes going crazy and a fine performance
by a young Ray Milland. This is the best comedy, (along with Sturges' own Sul-
livan's Travels) about the depression ever made. Short: SKIP THE MALOO,
Charley Chase plays follow-the-leader.
