POW charges dropped
The Pentagon has dropped the remaining misconduct
charges filed against U. S. soldiers held in North Vietna-
mese prison camps. The secretaries of the Army and
Navy cleared four enlisted men Friday of mutiny and
aiding the enemy. Of the 565 Americans who returned
from North Vietnamese captivity, 10 were accused of
misconduct by .fellow prisoners. All the charges have
been dismissed.
Tacky music
The "shabbiness, irreverence, immorality and addic-
tions" of contemporary music were hit at the semi-an-
nual world conference of Mormons at the Salt Lake City
Friday. Boyd Packer, a member of the church's ruling
Council of the Twelve, urged young members to toss
out recordings that belong to the new morality, the drug
or the hard rock culture." Packer said, "In our day as
never before, music itself has been corrupted. Music
can, by its tempo, beat and intensity, dull the spiritual
sensitivity of man. Our youth have been brought up on
a diet of music that'is louder and faster, more intended
to agitate than to pacify."
Drunken beast
Old Bess was probably just looking for an extra meal
yesterday when she wandered into a cottage in Castel
Rigone, Italy. Instead, she became trapped under a col-
lapsed beam and threatened to bring the whole build-
ing down in her panic. Quick-thinking firemen called by
farmer Angelo Aluni resolved the situation with a couple
gallons of the famous Italian grape. They gave the cow
a lot of wine to drink and lifted the animal - by then
quite thoroughly plastered-to safety with a crane.
Happenings. .
run the gamut from music and arts to politics to-
day and Monday. The Artists' and Craftsmen's Guild will
sponsor a Community Arts and Crafts Fair at the Far-
mers' Market on Fifth Street, from 1 to 7 p.m. Artists
from all over Michigan will perform, demonstrate and
sell their works . . . the Indochina Peace Campaign will
hold an organizational meeting at 8 p.m. in Prof. Dick
Mann's office above Saks Fifth Avenue on State Street
. . the "Great Songs of the Gershwin Years" will be
performed at the First Unitarian Church at 8 p.m. . . .
Monday, the Farm Worker's Support Committee will
meet in Room 114, in the basement of the Law Quad
library at 8 p.m.
Welcome to the club
The state of Oregon has joined Ann Arbor in coming
as close as anyone has in legalizing the weed. A new
statute, which became effective Friday, makes Oregon
the first state to eliminate criminal penalties for posses-
sion of less than one ounce of marijuana or hashish. Of-
fenders will be issued citations similar to those issued
for traffic violations. However, for every silver lining
there's a black cloud: it's still a crime to grow, sell or
transport the stuff in Oregon, and a person watching
someone else enjoy is still subject to prosecution under
an older, still effective, law..Oregon governor Thomas
McCall also threatens to initiate legislation next year to
exclude hashish from the statute.
Seeing things
There's something in the air above University Park,
Pa. State police reported a heart-shaped UFO hovering
over the Penn State campus Friday. Cpl. Robert Bugjo
and trooper Paul Cutrufello said they saw a beam of light
shining down from the UFO, which reportedly floated
some 1,200 feet in the air. They said the beam was sur-
rounded by a string of red lights. The craft stayed in
the same position for approximately 90 seconds, wit-
nesses said, then took off in an easterly direction, ex-

tinguishing its lights and disappearing after travelling
a quarter of a mile. The object was sighted by a number
of local residents.

BEIRUT (Reuter) - The Egyptian army poured tanks
and men across the Suez Canal yesterday while Syria struck
at Israel on the Golan Heights in the fiercest Middle East
fighting since the Six-Day War in 1967.
Each side blamed the other for the fighting which erupted
yesterday afternoon on the most sacred holiday of the Jewish
calendar-Yom Kippur-the day of atonement when Jews tra-
ditionally seek mutual forgiveness.
Battle reports from the area were sharply conflicting,
with each side claiming major gains in a series of skirmishes.
Newsmen often could only get the "official account" of the
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, the military leader

MEANWHILE, the U.S. Embassy
confirmed that. an American stu-
dent living in Chile, Frank Teruggi,
died of bullet wounds. Other details
are still sketchy.
Teruggi, of Des Plaines, Ill., is
the first U.S. citizen known to have
died in Chile since the military

improvised prison camp said Thurs-
day that Terrugi had been arrested
Sept. 20 for curfew violation, re-

roommate, David Hathaway, 22,
of Seattle, that military police ar-
rested Teruggi and Hathaway at
the house they shared. Hathaway
was later released.
In another development yester-
day, the death penalty for car
theft went into force as a bid by the
junta to curb what they described
as a mounting wave of robberies of
vehicles in recent years.
Authorities are searching inn par-

owned vehicles which they said
could not be traced since last

SINCE THE SEPT. 11 coup, 212
robberies of vehicles, including am-
bulances, trucks and buses, have
been reported, and so far 87 have
been recovered, police said.
The junta, which claims the Al-
lende regime was planning to im-
pose Marxism by force in Chile, has
accused members and supporters
of Allende's Popular Unity Coali-
tion government of being behind
the robberies and says they acted
with impunity because of their of-
ficial connections.
The junta also claims the ousted
regime plunged Chile into eco-
nomic chaos and has predicted that
Chileans will have to endure many
months of hardships and austerity.

The outbreak of fighting in the
Middle East met cautious official
reaction from- the United Nations
and the U. S. government yester-
day as leaders reportedly debated
various courses of action.

DETROIT-Despite a slow start
on Friday approximately 7000 peo-
ple gathered in Cobo Hall yester-
day to celebrate a wake-revival of
Star Trek.
The popular show, which went
off the air four years ago, has
managed to attract a large and
committed following who hope to
see it brought back to the nation's
TV screens in its original form.
THESE FANS, young and old
milled about Cobo Hall yesterday
where they saw Star Trek reruns,

auctions of Star Trek memorabilia
and panel discussions featuring sev-
eral former members of the cast.
Though neither Captain Kirk nor
the charismatic Mr. Spock were
on hand, Mr. Sulu, Mr. Scott and
Mr. Chekov put in appearances.
For Mr. Sulu, alias George Takei,
the ball is the highlight of the en-
tire weekend.
"A FEW WEEKS ago when we
had a similar affair in Los An-
geles," he recalls, "a statuesque
blonde came out in a gossamer
cape. As soon as she reached the
center of the room she dropped

her cape. She had nothing on un-
derneath except public hair."
In addition to the show's stars,
other luminaries including Hugo
prize winners Frank Kelly Freas
and Harlan Ellison took part in
the festivities. Hugos are the

The convention which is sched-
