"Everything you've always wanted to
know about medical school admis-

audience demanding the "invi-
tation to this mass murderer
(Kissinger) be withdrawn."
SHE THEN asked that "full
blame and responsibility" for
the petition be put on her be-
cause "I am missing three feet
of intestine, have a fused spine,
I'm 59 years old and don't have
long on this earth, and hope I
die in a way to get into an AP
(Associated Press) wire story."
sContinuing with her sexual
allusions and parallels, Ken-
nedy voiced the hope that "Kis-
singer w ill withdraw (from
speaking at the 'U') and not
come at all." She added, T'Few
men with the playboy image
like his can get it up anyway."
Donald Freed has for the past
five years been investigating the

alleged coverup of the assassi-
nation of President John Ken-
nedy by an anti-democratic ele-
ment of the government/mili-
tary-industrial complex and fi-
cused his presentation on the
lessons that can be learned from
the experience.
HE BASED his allegation of
intra-governmental plot on the
famous "Zapruder film" which
supposedly shows Kennedy was
shot from the front while CB;
commentator Dan Rather tells
his radio audience the president
was thrown forward by thie
blast. The plethora of CIA con-
nections to the events surround-
ing the assassination supports
the theory, he claimed.
Freed played a tape of an in-
terview with Oswald in which
he is asked how he supp)rted
himself in Russia. His answer is
"I was under the protection, er,
rather I was not under the pro-
tection of the U.S. government.
That is to say I was an Ameri-
can citizen."
Freed is convinced Oswald
was a dope of the CIA,

though. Last year, RAP-3, a
citizens group comprised mostly
of Republicans got angry with
Colburn for Republican duplicity
on the Packard-Platt issue, and
worked hard for Democrat
Jamie Kenworthy.
RAP-3 and anti-Colburn senti-
ment weren't factors this year,
thogh. In all likelihood the Re-
Publicans who crossed over and
voted for Kenworthy went back
and opted for Trowbridge.
While the Democrats and the
GOP slit the election spoils,
the HRP took another cross to
the jaw. It was another tough
election for the Hippos, and they
knew it. Reports described their
misnamed victory celebration as
a wake.
IT WASN'T just a fluke. In
November, HRP took a beating
too. But Monday the shift away
from the HRP was dramatic.
Two years ago, HRP took 16.3
ner cent of the mayoral vote.
This year it was down to less
than eleven.
Worsethan the dismal city-
wide totals were the drops in
Wards One and Two. Two years
ago, Frank Shoichet lost a
squeaker to Democrat Carol
Jones in the Second Ward, the
HRP stronghold, getting edged
2018-1853. This year he lost
better than 2-1, polling only
1184 votes to2the Democrat's
2450.
In the First Ward last year
HRP candidate Beth Brunton
closed fast and nearly upset
Democrat Colleen McGee falling
short by about 100 votes. This
year David Goodman lost by
nearly 600 votes.
HRP largely writes off the
other threetwards. If they lse
touch with their constituency in
One and Two, they'll be hard
pressed to find any significant
support.
The only hope for the HRP
may be that they will hold a
swing vote on council. But that
won't win elections. And the
track record-only one council-
person elected since 1972-is
poor.
