Hearst hassle
The former fiancee of kidnaped Patricia Hearst
has won a court order halting publication of a book
which he co-authored with ex-Daily Editor-in-Chief
Roger Rapoport. Steven Weed, who was engaged to
Hearst when she was kidnaped just over a year
ago, now contends the book would sensationalize
certain aspects of the case. "We had promised the
publisher nothing would be left out," Rapoport said
after the-ruling Friday. "The book is very candid
about drugs and sex. But Steve got cold feet."
Rapoport was ordered to return notes and source
material to Weed but has filed a counter lawsuit.

Ford's follies
Nearly two thirds of the people interviewed for a
Harris poll still believe that President Gerald Ford
was wrong in pardoning his predecessor Richard
Nixon, according to the survey results realized
Friday. Just as many also believed that the coun-
try's system of justice failed with respect to Nixon's
involvement in the Watergate coverup. In other
aspects of Watergate, however, the poll of 1,532
Americans showed a majority in favor of the way
the case was handled.
Old tricks
Police uncovered a brothel for senior citizens
during a raid on a building in Marseille, France,
the gendarmes reported yesterday. The raid turned
up two prostitutes in their 50's and eight clients
whose ages ranged from 60 to 77. The establish-
ment was opened several months ago by a 63-year-
old madam. The prostitutes said that they charged
about $10 for their services.
Doomed dentists
Dentists die young and have the highest suicide
and divorce rates of any profession because they
are burned out by the emotional trauma of dealing
with fearful patients, according to Dr. Omar Reed,
director of the Amprican Society for Preventive
Dentistry. The strain of treating people who mis-

understand dentistry is one reason why the average
American dentist dies at the age of 52, Reed said.
Labor pains
In three years of marriage, an Englishwoman
from Nottingham failed to become pregnant, so
she wrapped towels around her stomach and pre-
tended to be expecting. Then she stole a seven-
week-old child and claimed it was her own. For
this hanky-panky, a judge last week sentenced her
to two years in prison on kidnaping charges. But
the case against her husband-for harboring a
stolen child- was dropped for lack of evidence.

WASHINGTON - President
Ford's proposed budget will deal
a stunning blow to urban Amer-
ica, spokesmen for the nation's
cities charged yesterday.
"If his 1976 budget is a head-
ache for President Ford, it is a
concussion for the cities," the
U. S. Conference of Mayors and
National League of Cities said
in a 90-page budget analysis.
THE REPORT said local gov-
ernments are being forced to
increase their taxes while the
federal government cuts taxes
as an economic stimulus, to fire
employes while the federal gov-
ernment is creating public ser-
vice jobs, and to cut back on
public services for those hard-
est hit by the economic crisis.
Instead of coordinating feder-
al and local attacks on the
country's economic ills, the re-
port said, "The budget would

SENIOR CO-CAPTAIN Joe Johnson rises to the occasion in a one-for-one confrontation with

JOHNSON scored 28 and Ku-
pec 25 to lead the Wolverines to
their highest loint total of the
season. Teammates Wayman
Britt and Steve Grote held Ter-
ry Furlow, the Big Ten's lead-
ing scorer, to one field goal
in eight attempts.
Michigan's win left both
teams with 6-5 records in the
Big Ten, and 13-6 overall
marks. Each club is fighting to
stay in contention for a post-
season tournament berth.
"Michigan played extremely
well," said State coach Gus
Ganakas after watching his
team play its fourth road game
in eight days: "They were fast-
er, quicker-in every facet of
rthe game they were better."
State carried a five-game win-
ning streak into yesterday's
contest, but was forced to play
without starting guard Pete Da-
vis, who was suffering from
the flu. Benny White played in
his place.
M I C H I G A N also started
a new lineup, with freshman
Dave Baxter at guard in place
of Grote. Baxter played nearly
thirty minutes, scoring only five
points, but turned the ball over
just once, and notched six as-

the Spartans' only offensive
punch of the second half, scor-
ing 17 of his 27 points in
State's futile comeback at-
tempts. The 6-8 senior captain
hit 12 of 18 shots in the game.

Kuped's impressive shooting
display helped push Michigan
from a 51-46 lead to a 63-48 ad-
vantage. State came no closer
than 11 after that.
When Michigan s win became
increasingly apparent, the
Spartans changed their strate-
gy. After a time-out with 7:48
remaining, State fouled a Michi-

U.S. army vets ired
to train Arab forces

ADDIS ABABA (Reuter)-Ethiopia appeared to
be heading for full-scale civil war yesterday
after the military government here declared it
would not consider granting independence to the
secessionist northern province of Eritrea.
Within hours of a toughly-worded official state-
ment which accused the breakaway Eritrean
Liberation Front (ELF) of atrocities against the
civilian population, violence flared again n the
Eritrean capital of Asmara, which had been
quiet for three days.
JUST AFTER midnight, Asmara residents re-
ported three explosions in the city followed by
machine-gun and small arms fire. After a lull
in fighting, firing resumed and bazookas were
brought in.
In the last week of open fighting between
government troops and guerrillas, the local power
station and water supplies were hit by seces-

Last night's statement by the provisional mili-
tary government was issued a few hours after
the return to Addis Ababa from Asmara of Major
Mengistu Haile-Mariam, strongman of the mili-
tary council which toppled Emperor Haile
Selassie last September.
RELIABLE Ethiopian sources said the major
had gone to the battle area to take personal
command after his army suffered reverses at
the hands of the guerrillas.
There were also reports here of disciplinary
problems in the army and civilian evacuees from
Asmara have claimed that troops killed civilians
and looted indiscriminately.
The government statement, publicly detailing
for the first time the guerrilla action in Eritrea,
accused the rebels of wanton acts of barbarity.
Security forces had taken appropriate measures
to ensure peace and security and maintain

LOS ANGELES (A) - Several
hundred former U. S. special
forces soldiers and other retired
Vietnam war veterans are be-
ing recruited by a private
American contractor to train
Saudi Arabian troops to protect
oil fields.
The $77 million U. S. Defense
Department contract, awarded
to the Vinnell Corporation of
Los Angeles in January, is the
first ever given to a private
American company to train a
foreign army, the company said.
P R I V A T E American
concerns have often handled
logistics and maintenance
chores of armed forces of the
United States and friendly for-
eign governments. But showing
foreign troops how to fire their
weapons and fight wars has
been the mission of U. S. mili-
tary advisory teams, most re-
cently in Southeast Asia.

The troops to be trained over
the next three years by a 1,000-
man Vnnell Corporation con-
tingent belong to the Saudi Ara-
bian National Guard, the 26,000-
man internal security force
commanded by King Faisal's
half-btother Prince Abdullah
Bin Abdul Aziz.
These troops are primarily
responsible for guarding the
country's rich oil fields and the
petroleum export facilities.
They also provide the key body-
guard units for the Saudi Ara-
bian royal family. Their pur-
pose is also to supplement, if
necessary, the rapidly modern-
izing 36,000-man Saudi Arabian
regular army.

Hordes of students are once again
searching for decent, cheap, off-campus
housing, and once again, are complain-
ing they can't find much.
Like many college towns, Ann Arbor
is short on housing and high on rents.
Because the city's vacancy rate is about
four per cent - well below the national
average - nearly every inhabitable
dwelling unit is occupied.
CONSEQUENTLY, many students are

Cameon Carrington, one of the ten-
ants who turned to Legal Aid for help,
lodged a complaint against Summit-
aImilton for a myriad of alleged vio-
lations -- including a small tree grow-
ing through the living room floor.
"We rented because there was no-
where else to rent . . . we rented it
with a million promises behind it,"tsays

for repairs were ignored a majority of
the time.
"It became obvious that the land-
lord's idea of repair was to do the cheap-
est, quickest job," she says.
CARRINGTON and her two room-
mates have recently moved and now
plan to initiate court proceedings against
Summit-Hamilton asking for' approxi-
mntely $1000 in damages, part of which
includes their security deposit, which
was never returned.
