W sBriefs
From Wire Service Reports
Princess Anne, daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, and her hus-
band Capt. Mark Phillips, escaped unhurt late yesterday when a
man pumped bullets into their car when they were returning
to Buckingham Palace in London.
A Scotland Yard detective guarding the 23-year-old princess, their
chauffeur and a policeman in the area were wounded, the spokes-
man reported. The extent of their wounds could not be immediately
determined, but a spokesman at St. George's Hospital said the police-
man and the driver "have got gunshot wounds in the body."
A spokesman at Buckingham Palace said a man "blocked the
chauffeur-driven royal car in the mall with his car. Then he got out
and fired some shots at the car."
A Soviet military helicopter with a three-man crew strayed
over the Chinese border six days ago, the Soviet news agency
Tass reported Wednesday. The incident threatened to worsen the
chronic frontier quarrel between the two Communist giants.
Moscow requested the immediate return of the crew, but Peking
remained silent, the official news agency Tass said.
Chinese informants in the Soviet capital confirmed the request
was made to Ambassador Liu Hsin-Chuan on March 15. The Chinese
envoy denied any knowledge of the matter, but said he would ask
Peking.
The U.S. dollar yesterday lost almost all its recent gains
against European currencies amid a new bout of confusion on
the foreign exchange markets.
Already declining because of Watergate developments in the
United States, the dollar was hit sharply today by talk of a revaluation
of the West German mark, Europe's strongest currency.
Despite official West German denials of any revaluation, the dol-
lar swung sharply downwards, closing in Frankfurt about four pfen-
nigs lower than yesterday at around 2.5975 marks.
It also dropped substantially against other European currencies
in what foreign exchange dealers described as the worst bout of
market unrest for some time.
Fast-talking by Uganda's president Idi Amin ended East
Africa's first hijack yesterday, by an Ethiopean husband and wife,
apparently protesting against Emperor Haile Selassie's regime.
The woman had concealed a pistol in her tall afro-style hairdo.
The couple seized an East African Airways F-27 Fokker Friend-
ship aircraft with 33 other people on board, about 45 minutes after
take-off from Nairobi on an internal flight.
At least four people were shot to death yesterday by police
as violence continued in the Indian state of Bihar, the press trust
of India (PTI) reported from Patna, the Bihar capital.
This brought the death toll to at least 26, most of them in
police shootings, since anti-government demonstrations began in the
state four days ago.
A train was stopped by demonstrators seven miles from Patna and
the engineer pushed out.,The unmanned engine then continued on its
way and rammed a passenger train. Fifteen people were injured.

Streakers run into
world prominence

NEW YORK (Reuter) - In
France, they call it "le streak-
ing;" in London, it was "streak-
ermania;" and in other parts
of the world, bemused citizens
and angry police saw it as just
another peculiar American mad-
ness.
After its sudden spread I a s t -
month across college campuses
in the United States, streaking-
or running nude in public - fast
became an international fascina-
tion.
In Australia, a sad Melbourne
husband arrested after streak-
ing told a judge, "I did it to
impress the missus - she's left
home." The unimpressed judge
gave him a. month in jail.
In Seoul, a psychologist an-
.nounced South Koreans would not
have to worry about being con-
fronted by streakers because
Korean students had a stronger
sense of shame than heroism.
Within hours, police were hunt-
ing for South Korea's first streak-
er.
Streaking swept U.S. college
campuses last month as similar
fads like goldfish-swallowing
and telephone booth-packing did

in earlier generations. Ironically,
the craze seems to have waned
as the weather has warmed.
In West Germany, few inci-
dents were reported and police
were treating the phenomenon
lightly. While some observers
said chilly winds were prevent-
ing the spread of streaking, oth-
ers suggested the results of the
traditional German diet of beer
and sausage encouraged many
potential streakers to remain
clothed.
The traditions ofSain, where
kissing on the street is s t ill
frowned upon, brought a cer-
tain amount of modesty to the
first streaking efforts there. In
the first false starts of Bilbao
University and Virgo, would-be
streakers held determinedly on-
to their underpants as they ran
across a square.
In Asia, police have been plac-
ed on a special "streak alert"
in several couftries. In the wake
of scattered nude running in Ja-
pan, some police stations were
issued with blankets to throw
over captured streakers.
