Bobby Riggs has scrapped plans to leap from the
London Bridge this week because the water is too shal-

said Riggs decided against the jump after findinig out
water under the bridge was only six feet deep. Riggs
had promised to jump off a bridge if he lost his tennis

hike,

residency

By DAN BLUGERMAN
University President R o b b e n
Fleming defended the recent tui-
tion increases and new residency
regulations against charges raised
by Student Government Council,
(SGC) Vice President for Adminis-
trative Affairs David Fowler last
night on WUOM's Symposium '73.
However, the anticipated head-on
student-administration confronta-
tion did not materialize on the one
hour call-in radio show.
FLEMING OPENED by reading
a "simplified, yet accurate" ver-
sion of the official budget figures
for 1973-74.
He invited the. audience to follow
him in computing a projected defi-
cit of $5.4 million if revenue
sources are not increased from
last year.
When questioned on his figure,
Fleming admitted that the deficit
figure is only a rough "guesti-
mate."
FOWLER OPENED with a re-
statement of the Student Activities
Committee's (SAC) charges that
the administration did not include
the students in the decision-making
process.
Fleming responded by stating
that he hadchecked the minutes of
the Budget Allocation Committee
and was positive that both student
representatives were absent from
both meetings where the tuition in-
crease was discussed.
Fowler claimed last night the
SAC has 4,000 signatures of people
who have pledged to withhold their
first tuition payment. When Fowler
was asked what the University
would do to students if they with-
held the fee, he could only refer
to the mandatory late fee of $5.
When Moderator Fred Heindly
posed the same question to Flem-

ing, Fleming s i m p 1 y replied,
"That's an interesting question."
A listener called in a question to
Fleming challenging the 'U's' with-
holding of the faculty salary list.
The listener included a reference to
state Attorney General Frank
Kelly's ruling that these lists were
public record at state supported in-
Few can
to seek

stitutions.
Fleming responded that the issue
must be decided in the courts and
that the University will only turn
to the courts if sued.
FLEMING SAID this fall will not
be an accurate indicator of ,the
correctness of the tuition hike. He

office

in, SGC election

By BILL HEENAN
In recent years Student Govern-
ment Council (SGC) has been
plagued by low voter turn outs but
this year it apparently cannot even
find enough people to run for
office.
Yesterday noon marked the fil-
ing deadline for candidates seek-
ing seats representing residence
halls, independent housing, and
LSA in the up-coming election, yet
only two persons have chosen to
run for six available independent
housing positions.
MOREOVER JUST enough can-
didates have filed for residence
hallseats to hold a coptested race.
Four people will vie for three
seats.
Prospects for contested races in
the various other positions do not
appear promising, since many peo-
ple have filed for more than one
position. The SGC election code

requires that these persons actual-
ly run for only one position.
Final filing deadilne for the re-
maining-- seats is Oct. 1, just a
week before the actual election.
THE POOR TURNOUT by candi-
dates was not unexpected, accord-
ing to SGC member David Horn-
stein (Bullshit Party). "Many can-
didates especially those represent-
ing the independent housing will
win by default," he added.
Hornstein, however, predicted
"real contests" in the LSA and
undergraduate races.
Former SGC Treasurer David
Schaper blamed the poor response
on delays in preparing for the all-
campus election. The hold-up re-
sulted from SGC's move to amend
the controversial 10-10-10 plan ap-
proved last spring, he said.
THE PLAN ESTABLISHED the
expanded SGC format providing 42
seats divided among three basic
categories: residential, graduate/
undergrauate, and s c h o o 1. The
drive to change the new con-
stitution was killed by Central Stu-
dent Judiciary last week.
Nonetheless, Elections Director
Ron Straus dlaimed he is "farther
ahead now" in preparation than
any past SGC elections director.
"All we need now are poll workers
and ballot counters," he said.
Persons affiliated with such bi-
zarre parties as Screw SGC, Dump
(University basketball coach
Johnny Orr), and the Mad Hatters
Tea Party have already filed peti-
tions of candidacy. SGC President
Lee Gill's Student Rights Party
and the Campus Coalition, former-
ly CLAMP, are also fielding slates
of candidates.
UNLIKE LAST year SGC cannot
afford to publish candidate plat-
forms, prompting Vice President
Sandy Green to comment "they're
on their own now." SGC will, how-
ever, provide each party with a
$30 campaign subsidy.

Pacilfic splashdown
awaits Skylab crew
in disabled Apollo

HOUSTON (UP) - Clean up, pack
up and power down chores occupied
the Skylab 2 astronauts yesterday
as the record-breaking spacemen
prepared for their splashdown to-
day and the end of their 59%/2-day
voyage.
"Watch us today-we'll get this
thing all put to bed," said Skylab 2
commander Alan Bean as the as-
tronauts worked to close down the
space station. "We're coming
home tomorrow."
BEAN AND HIS crewmates,'
Jack Lousma and Owen Garriott,
spent yesterday tidying up the or-
biting laboratory and preparing it
for the Skylab 3 crew, which is
scheduled to spend 56 days aboard
the space station starting Nov. 11.
The Skylab 2 splashdown target
is 230 miles southwest of San
Diego, Calif., in the Pacific
Ocean. Officials said the target
may be moved to the northwest a
number of miles if Hurricane Irah,
which is 500 miles south of the
splashdown point, becomes a haz-
ard.
Bean spotted the storm off the
coast 'of western Mexico yesterday
and told Mission Control it was "a
beautiful hurricane."
BEAN, GARRIOTT and Lousma
will board their Apollo command
ship this morning. They will con-
duct a "hot fire" test of some
steering rockets and undock the
command module from Skylab at
3:50 p.m. EDT.
After moving away from the or-
biting laboratory, the astronauts
will fire the powerful service pro-
pulsion rocket on the Apollo craft.
This will slow their speed, cause
them to fall from .orbit and streak
into the atmosphere toward the
ocean.
Splashdown will come at 6:20
p.m. EDT.
RE-ENTRY WILL BE tricky
and complex for the astronauts.
The astronauts must fly the

tronauts.
SHORTLY AFTER splashdown
today, the New Orleans will ma-
neuver alongside t h e bobbing
spacecraft and lift it on board with
a crane. The astronauts will re-
main inside the Apollo craft until
it is on the deck of the carrier.
Dr. Royce Hawkins, chief of the
astronaut doctors, said he expects
Bean, Garriott and Lousma "will
be very unsteady" as the result of
their long stay in the weightless-
ness of space.

SANTIAGO - Chilean military
authorities have launched a book
burning campaign against Marxist
literature, raiding private homes
and ordering merchants to get rid
of leftist materials.
Col. Pedro Ewing, secretary-gen-
eral of the government for the mil-
itary junta that seized power Sept.
11, said in an interview published
yesterday that book stores "must
eliminate Marxist texts if they
-don't want to be sanctioned."
MEANWHILE, THE United States

officially recognized Chile's new
military junta yesterday, a State
Department spokesperson s a i d.
Some 20 nations have recognized
the junta. -
On Sunday; security forces raid-
ed numerous apartments at gun-
point in central Santiago and
threw Marxist books; pamphlets
and posters to the streets, wher'e
they were burned in bonfires.
IN SOME AREAS frightened
people started their own fires in
the street to burn offensive litera-
ture before the troops arrived.

BANDING TOGETHER
Marhing with Stanfrd
". By BETH NSEN
Clad in a floppy white hat,
cardinal-red jacket and goggles, I
set out to get the inside story on
::the . colorful Stanford Marching
Band at last Saturday's Michigan-
Stanford football game.
I tuned my vintage 1973 Chablis
wine bottle under the direction of
their gypsy-clad drum major. All
I had to do, I was assured, was
follow the saxophone player in
front of me.
WITH A GOOD supply of blind
faith, I marched out in step (yes,
they do all try to start on the
same foot) and under the pressure
of 80,000 pairs of eyes, ran to the
correct positions guided by the
shouts of cooperative band mem-
bers.
Their sudden offer to let me
march with them during half time
had been no joke; it was just typi-
cal of their "have a good time"
philosophy toward marching band.
"We like to do unrehearsed

The government also banned
Marxist newspapers that supported
the government of President Sal-
vador Allende, who died in the
bloody Sept. 11 coup.
. But the press secretary for -the
junta, Federico Willoughby, indi-
cated that the new government
does not have a. full-fledged policy
to eliminate Marxist, books. "The
- junta respects ideas. It doesn't be-
lieve burning books will stop
ideas," Willoughby told reporters.
ON SUNDAY'S book burnings,
he said: "Soldiers, police and stu--
dents do not always react in a
manner coinciding wit hgovern-
ment policy. It was something of
the moment."
The Swiss government announced
in Bern that its embassy in San-
tiago will be open to grant asylum
to anyone seeking refuge from po-
litical persecution.
The junta has arrested thousands
of suspected extremists sincemthe
coup. An official. announcement
over the weekend said 244 persons
have been killed in the coup and
in street battles between resisters
and security forces. But unofficial
estimates put the death toll much
higher.
AUTHORITIES reported that six
extremists w e r e killed Saturday
night while trying to escape their
military captors near the port city
of San Antonio.
Meanwhile, Chile's Nobel Prize-
winning poet Pablo Neruda will be
buried in Santiago. He was denied
a state funeral because of the mil-
itary coup which overthrew one of
his closest firends, Marxist Presi-
dent Salvador Allende.
Pablo Neruda, considered Latin
America's greatest poet in his life-
time, died Sunday night from heart
, collapse at the end of a long can-
cer illness.
NERUDA, 69, spent his last days
sinking into death as the vision of
