Thousands of Greek Cypriots yesterday stormed
the American Embassy in Nicosia, ransacked the
building and then set it ablaze. Apparently none
of the embassy personnel was injured, but the
demonstrators destroyed furniture and equipment
in the seven-story structure before torching a large
section. Shortly afterwards, the U. S. government
issued-a statement expressing "grave concern"
over the incident.
A Chicago man who collected change for three
years at Illinois Tollroad plazas was Friday con-

up under ultra-violet light. At the trial, an agent

An effort by Senate liberals to weaken the par-

be talked into oblivion by more conservative ele-

Mondale (D-Minn.) Friday introduced a motion to

bate on the Senate floor. Immediately Sen. James
Allen (D-Ala.) launched into a filibuster to prevent
a vote on the proposed change. He will probably
continue next week when the Senate reconvenes
and the gums of government flap on.

A black woman educator, Jewel Plummer Cobb, will
be appointed as the new literary college (LSA) dean, sev-
eral high University sources told The Daily yesterday.
Cobb, dean of Connecticut College, was selected by
the Regents to fill the vacancy created by the appoint-
ment of former LSA Dean Frank Rhodes to the post of
academic vice president in early 1974, sources said yes-

THESE CHARMING-LOOKING Beetles are the latest concoctions of Los Angeles advertiser
Charles Bird. The advertising brainchild has attracted many money-hungry students from the
nation's campuses, although students must have good driving records, high scholastic marks, and
adequate insurance to apply.
Advertising takes to streets

You don't get a broken bill-
board, but you do get a Beetle-

There are currently 1,500 of
these ubiquitous bugs racing
around the nation with the
brightly color advertisements,
in the form of decals, on their
bodies. And their drivers are
getting paid for it.
Beetle Bo'ards of America, the
company handling them, is the
brainchild of Charles Bird, a
Los Angeles advertising con-
sultant who specializes in the
15- to 30-year-old market.
Bird got the idea in 1971
while walking through a col-
lege campus parking lot on his
.way to deliver a speech. He no-
ticed that VW's dominated the

students all over the country
were contracting to have adver-
tisements on their cars in ex-
change for the greenbacks stu-
dents continually need.
Typical is Chris Clayton, a
University junior, who drives a
VW adorned with an Eastern
Airlines decal. His VW had a
little rust showing through the
paint when he read a Beetle-
board advertisement in The
Daily last year.
Clayton signed an eight-month
contract and took his bug to a
local VW car dealer who ap-
plied the brightly colored de-
cal. And Clayton cashes the
S20 check he receives each
month from the company.
The Eastern Airlines program
includes distribution of a pro-
motional booklet called "Part
of the Earth," but Clayton ad-
mits he has given away less
than 30 of them. He says not

viewed earlier this week by the
meeting. Frye and David Da-
nelski, the ombudsman at Cor-
nell University, were also con-
sidered for the post.
University President Robben
Fleming last night refused to
comment on the appointment.
Fleming is expected to formally
announce the Regents' decision
sometime later this week.
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Rhodes also declined
to comment on the Regents' de-
cision. However, when asked if
his response signified a denial,
Rhodes repeated, "That means

for comment at her home in

It is likely that Cobb will as-
sume the deanship in late spring
when she completes her du-
ties at Connecticut College.
Frye said that he had accepted
the acting deanship last June
with the understanding that a
new dean would fill the post
whenever it would be most suit-
SEVERAL University officials
had predicted that Frye, laud-
ed by the faculty for his firm
direction, would be chosen as
permanent dean. However, one
source observed that "historic-
ally, there havebeen several
acting deans who did not be-
come permanent deans."
Another high-level official
said, "We were naturally in-
clined to think the inside can-
didate would get it. But there's
also the view that we should
look outside the University rath-
er than get too ingrown . - .
That could be one of the rea-
sons for choosing her (Cobb)."
The three final candidates'
names were submitted to Flem-
ing by a student-faculty search
committee in December. The
committee was formed last Ap-
ril to find a successor to
Rhodes. At that time the panel
began reviewing 125 candidates
for the position. After several
months of deliberation the list
was narrowed to the three
names,' which the committee
then submitted to Fleming and
ACCORDING to Chuck Bar-
qust, a student on the commit-
tee, Fleming and Rhodes were
"very pleased with the list."
They brought the recommenda-
tions to -the Regents, who had
the prerogative of deciding

PETITION DRIVE BEGINS:
Pilot reacts to
By DAN BIDDLE
The Pilot Program's students
and administrators moved swift-
ly yesterday toward organized
efforts to prevent discontinua-
tion of the program-a move
that University officials are ser-
iously considering in the face of
an overall four per cent budget
As Program Director Richard
Munson issued a statement of
"deep concern" at the possibil-
ity that Pilot will disband after
this year, dozens of students al-
most immediately began peti-
tion and letter-writing drives in
Alice Lloyd Hall, where the pro-
gram is housed.
MUNSON expressed amaze-
ment "that officials would con-
sider eliminating the Pilot Pro-
gram, for it is one of the most
successful, exciting, inexpen-
sive, and innovative alterna-

He urged "all present and
former Pilot students" to attend
a meeting to plan mass actions
aimed at saving the program.
That meeting is scheduled for
this Thursday night in Alice
Lloyd's Red Carpet Lounge.
MUNSON SAID letter-writing
and petitioning efforts would be
directed from students and par-
ents to members of the literary
college's (LSA) Executive Com-
mittee-the body w h i c h will
soon decide whether Pilot will
have to be ended this year.
Psychology Prof. D o n a I d
Brown, the chairman of Pilot's
standing committee, said yes-
terday, "It would be a great
tragedy if it were necessary to
eliminate this program." He
added that his committee would
make "every effort" to present
alternative budget-cutting plans
Munson agreed with several
other LSA sources who Friday
described the Executive Com-
mittee's make-up as possibly
crucial to Pilot's fate. "There
are a couple of people on that
committee," Munson said, "who
don't like us."
HIGH LSA sources noted Fri-
day that the Executive Com-
mittee had already questioned
Brown. "They brought him in
and said, 'Justify yourself,' "
one source said.
The source contended that

GRESHAM, Wis. (P) - Indian
women and children were eva-
cuated yesterday from a religi-
ous estate occupied since New
Year's Day by armed Indian
demonstrators. M e d i a t o r s,
meanwhile, continued to nego-
tiate for a bloodless conclusion
of the takeover.
The National Guard expressed
optimism that a peaceful set-
tlement would be worked out
during the weekend and de-
nounced Indian militants who
accused the guard of preparing
to assault the contested estate.
COL. HUGH Simonson, deny-
ing any plans to use force, said
25 to 30 Indians remained in the
estate's 64-room mansion after
the evacuation. He said the
evacuation was simply another
promising sign that matters are

ciety evicted a caretaker and

pathizers, with many of them

destruction would be tragic."

Several programs and posi-
tions within the University may
be drastically cut back or elimi-
nated as a result of a proposed
four per cent reduction in state
appropriations, The Daily has
Cuts include certain programs
within the Residential College
(RC), the .Law School's "Wo-
men and the Law" program,
and the School of Nursing's
minority a d v i s o r. Moreover,
Vice President for Academic
Affairs Frank Rhodes has asked
the Rackham School for Gradu-
ate Studies to absorb an up to
eight per cent cut, according to
high-level University sources.
FRIDAY, sources had reveal-
ed possible reductions, or com-
nlptp Pliminenn of.the Pi
THE SOURCE claimed the
RC, like Course Mart and the
Pilot program, is "vulnerable
because it is, to some extent,
expendable. It is making these
cuts so it won't be caughtswith
its pants down when it's re-
quested to make larger cuts."
The eight per cent cut in the
Rackham program is tentative.
Another high University source
asserts that Rackham has in the
past used its money inefficient-
ly, and could absorb the cut.
But it is anticipating cuts in
federal funding this year in ad-
dition to the probable four per
cent cut in state appropriations.
The actual cut in the Rack-
ham budget will then probably
lie somewhere between four and
eight oer cent.
