A SOUTH VIETNAMESE task force tried to reopen Pnom
Penh's highway to the sea, battling North Vietnamese forces
yesterday in a key mountain pass, but did not win control
of the area.
A total of 53,000 South Vietnamese and 8,000 Cambodian soldiers
launched the drive Wednesday to reopen the highway, and restore the
flow of imports to the capital.
The U.S. command announced that an American plane on a
reconnaissance mission was shot down in another sector of Cambodia.
It was the first American aircraft reported lost there since Dec. 12.
American sorties against enemy troops and supplies in Cambodia
have increased to their highest level in about six months, Pentagon
sources said yesterday.
SEN. EDMUND MUSKIE, a potential candidate for the Demo-
cratic presidential nomination, spent nearly four hours yesterday,
discussing U.S., Soviet, and world problems with Premier Alexei
The unofficial meeting was held against a background of mount-
ing Soviet criticism of the United States over the past few months.
heightened recently by the anti-Soviet violence of Jewish extremists
in the United States.
The Kosygin talk was Muskie's second major discussion of poli-
tical questions since his arrival. He met also with Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromkyo.
Muskie leaves Moscow today for West Germany where he is
scheduled to meet Chancellor Willy Brandt. He visited Israel and
Egypt on his way to the Soviet Union and talked with top officials in
both countries.

Who makes a better teacher-a strict authoritarian type person
or a relaxed permissive type person? In faculty lounges across the
country this vexing question is causing much earnest discussion and
not a few stabbings. Today, to help you find an answer, let me tell you
about the Sigafoos brothers.
The Sigafoos brothers were both professors at a famous Eastern
university (Colorado School of Mines). Worsham, the elder brother,
taught mica and feldspar. Hymie, the younger, taught shafting and
shoring. Worsham was a strict authoritarian who believed the best way
to teach was to stay aloof from his students, to be distant and forbid-
ding. In Worsham's classes only he talked, nobody else. In fact, not
only didn't he let his students-talk to him, he didn't even let them look
at him. For years the kids had to fall full length on their bellies every
time Worsham entered the classroom and stay that way until he left.
The college finally forced him to stop last spring after a sophomore
coed named Ethel R. Beinecke died from an overdose of floor wax.
After that Worsham just had the kids drop to one knee.
(Incidentally, speaking of dropping to one knee, it's a very ironic
little story, the story of how this custom began. As you know of course,
it started in Bavaria during the reign of Ludwig the Gimp (1608-1899)
who, as you know of course, had one leg shorter than the other. To
keep the king from feeling self-conscious, his subjects would always
drop to one knee whenever he came gimping by. Indeed, they did such
a convincing job that Ludwig lived all his life believing everybody had
one short leg.
(Now here comes the ironic part: after his death it was discovered
that Ludwig never had a short leg after all! Do you know what he had?
4< He had his pants buttoned to his vest!)
But I digress. Worsham Sigafoos,I say, stayed aloof from his stu-
dents. So what happened? The students grew steadily more cowed and
sullen, trauma and twitching set in, night sweats followed, and when it
came time for finals, every man jack of them flunked.
Now let us take Worsham's younger brother Hymie. Breezy,
bearded, twinkly, outgoing, dressed alv .ys in homespun robes and a
Navajo puberty pouch, Hymie was totally unlike his brother (except,
of course, that each had one short leg). Hymie believed the way to
teach was to be a pal to the students, not a despot. He let the kids
come to class or not, whichever they liked. Classroom discussions were
free and unstructured. Anyone who had anything to say simply spoke
up. Sometimes the class discussed classwork, but more often they just
sat and gassed about life in general or maybe played a little Show and
Tell. (This was especially popular in spring when everybody brought
their Easter chicks toclass.)

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Two priests and a
former priest, defendants in an alleged kidnap
bomb plot, asked a federal judge yesterday to re-
lease them to Cardinal Lawrence Shehan, Roman
Catholic Archbishop of Baltimore.
The, three are the Rev. Neil McLaughlin, 30,
the Rev. Joseph Wenderoth, 35, and Anthony
Scoblick, 30, all of Baltimore.
They are among six persons indicted in Harris-
burg Tuesday on charges of planning to kidnap
presidential foreign affairs adviser Henry Kissin-
ger and blow up heating systems in five govern-
ment buildings in Washington last February.
Francis Gallagher, attorney for the three men,
told Judge Dixon Herman that Cardinal Shehan

Meanwhile another federal judge heard argu-
ments by an attorney for a Catholic nun named
as a co-conspirator who refused on constitutional
grounds to testify before the grand jury.
Jack Levine of Philadelphia, attorney for Sis-
ter Joques Egan, 32, of New York City, said a new
federal law that grants immunity to witnesses was
unconstitutional because it allowed a witness to
be indicted after he testified.

Beirut's International Airport in
December 1968.
AP correspondent Elias Antar
reported from Sarafand that an
estimated 120 Israeli guerrillas
staged the raid in four helicopters.
Antar said they blew up two com-
mando strongpoints along the
shore, but guerrilla and 'Lebanese
army sources said the raiders
were driven off before they reach-
ed the main guerrilla base.
An Israeli military communique
said 10 guerrillas were killed and
"many more" injured in the strike
near Sarafand. It said six Israelis
were wounded.
'The Palestine guerrilla com-
mand said 2 commandos were kill-
ed and 7 wounded, against 15 Is-
raelis killed and wounded.
The Lebanese Cabinet met in
emergency session to discuss the
raid, and the Lebanese army was
placed on alert.
The Arabs said the Israelis
came in under cover of rain from
the Mediterranean, using boats
and helicopters.

the raiders demolished twohous-

militant Angela Davis is identified
as the purchaser of four guns us-
ed in the Marin Civic C e n t e r
shootout in a 127-page transcript
of testimony before a grand jury
that was released yesterday.
A witness, Peter Fleming a ser-
vice station attendant, also testi-
fied he saw Jonathan Jackson and
a woman who looked similar to
Davis at the Civic Center 1 a s t
Aug. 6, the day before the shoot-
o u t in which Jackson, Superior
Court Judge Harold Haley and two
convicts, James McClain and Wil-
liam Christmas died in an abortive
escape attempt.
Testimony in the transcript al-
so said Davis was accompanied by
Jackson when she bought one and
possibly two of the guns.
Davis has been indicted oin
charges of murder, kidnap and
conspiracy under a California law
which makes an accessory as guil-
ty as a person who actually com-
mits a crime.
Davis, 26, an avowed Commun-
ist, said at a Jan. 5 arraignment
she is innocent and charged that
she is victim of a political frame-

mained sealed until yesterday by
court order, includes testimony bM

woman came to the station about
10:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 and asked
for help with a truck parked in a
lot at the center.

Groups of Bass,

Well sir, you guessed it. Hymie's class, loved and fulfilled though
they were, flunked just like Worsham's, every man jack.
You're frowning, I see. If authority is wrong, you ask, and if
friendliness is wrong too, what then is right? Well sir, how about some-
thing right in between? How about striking a perfect balance-just as,
for example, Miller High Life Beer has done?
Take a sip of Miller and you'll see what I mean. Does it have
authority? You bet it does! It's brisk, it's bracing, it's ardent, it's sub-
stantial, it's forceful. If that's not authority, then I need a new the-
Take another sip. Now do you see that along with its authority,
Miller is at the same time a wonderfully friendly beer-affable and
benign and docile and dulcet?
Of course you see that. And that's exactly what I mean by strik-
