City notes
More on the upcoming April city elections:
Mayor Stephenson, who somewhat reluctantly filed
to run for re-election last month, has now vouched
for the preferential balloting system. In a Wednes-
day night speech to local Rotarians, the GOP in-
cumbent quashed rumors that his party would test
the new voting system in court, saying "It's here
to stay, and we'll live with it." Stephenson also an-
nounced that paper ballots instead of voting ma-
chines will have to be used for the complicated pre-
ferential election system. Speaking of the election,
we described Democratic mayoral hopeful Al
Wheeler as a physician in yesterday's paper. He
is in fact an associate professor of dermitology and
microbiology at the University. We also erroneous-
ly called Third Ward hopeful Mike Broughton a
Republican. He's really a Democrat.

Anwar the arsonist
The Arab states will light the fuse on their rich
oil fields before invading U.S. forces can capture
them, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat declared
yesterday. Sadat's remarks came after Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger's statement last week
that he would not rule out the use of force against
the oil nations in the event of "some actual strang-
ulation of the industrialized world." A simple ex-
plosion would eliminate the need for armies, ac-
cording to Sadat who said, "Blowing up something
is much easier than an invasion." Bravo, Anwar.
Eat my words
After being nabbed in London for shoplifting, a
young woman promptly swallowed all her identifi-
cation and hasn't uttered a single word since she
was taken into police custody. Called the "female
anon" in court yesterday, she thwarted the efforts
of interpreters in six languages to crack her code.
The court has ordered the mystery woman's fing-
erprints taken.

Commanding officers on campus have called for University
support to boost dwindling enrollment in the Army and Air Force
Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) up to levels considered
viable by the Defense Department.
Army Colonel Kenneth Iris hand Air Force Colonel M. E.
Grunske voiced their concern this week as a Literary College
(LSA) committee completes its investigation of the academic
quality of Army, Air Force, and Navy ROTC courses.
IRISH WARNED, "If we don't receive credit, I suspect that
if junior enrollment doesn't go up, this unit will be dissolved."
Grunzke said, "It would be quite demoralizing for cadet stu-
dents if we don't get credit. It might affect enrollment. If we
have to leave here ,and go to a lesser school, we might have
lesser talent."
The LSA Curriculum Committee, who ordered the investiga-

tion last October, appointed a sub-committee of three faculty and
one student to examine the academic quality of ROTC courses
in order to determine whether some courses merit the full aca-
demic credit eliminated in 1969 by the LSA faculty.
THE CURRICULUM committee reviews all academic courses
and recommends proposed alterations, which are then submitted
to the school's Executive Committee and ultimately to the LSA
faculty for final action.
According to Irish, countrywide ROTC enrollment began
plummeting around 1969 "when the country beecame disenchanted
with the Vietnam War." Army enrollment here plunged from 330
students in 1969 to a low of 33 students in 1973. Beginning to
recover, it stands at 61 this year.
Irish contends, however, "To expect enrollment to go back
to pre-Vietnam levels without academic creit is wishful thinking."

this unit will be dissolved.'

citizens who are irate over the theft of the famous
monument. The boll weevil was immortalized as
a statue 60 years ago after it chomped its way
through the entire cotton crop in south Alabama,
forcing farmers to turn to other crops.

No progress made
in oil contract talks

More than 11,000 workers learned yesterday
that they would be laid off their jobs indefinitely.
Auto manufacturers and companies that supply
them accounted for most of the total, but United
Airlines, New England Telephone Co. and Honey-
well were among other companies that had bad
news for some of their employes.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT affecting the most
workers was made by General Motors, which said
it would put 2,800 employes at its Lordstown,
Ohio, plant on indefinite layoff beginning Jan. 20.
In Indiana, three divisions of General Motors
announced layoffs affecting a total of 1,335 em-

IN EAGLE, PA., Gindy Trailer Manufacturing
Co. announced indefinite layoffs for nearly 65 per
cent of its work force-a total of 515 white- and
blue-collar workers. A spokesman blamed lagging
sales of truck trailers.
In Arcade, N.Y., Motorola, Inc., said it would
lay off 375 administrative and production workers
later this month. The layoffs bring the number
of workers idled since Oct. 1 to 900, or more than
half of the total employment at the Arcadia plant
late in 1974. The plant manufactures parts for
the auto industry.
In Winchester, Ky., Rockwell International,
Inc., said 190 of the 1,370 workers at its truck
axle plant would be laid off indefinitely effective

Grospiron said that any strike

"nationwide within short order."
