Bunny ordered to hop
The girl-next-door image of Hugh Hefner's Playboy
bunnies suffered a body blow yesterday. A circuit court
judge in Norristown, Pa., ruled that ex-bunny Gregoire
Fullerton had to move out of the home of Philadelphia
meat-packing industry mogul Herman Klayman. The
walking papers for Fullerton came in a suit filed by
Klayman's estranged wife, who charged she was driven
from the home and her 13-year old son Stephen by
"strong-arm men" hired by her husband. Fuller-
ton's lawyer promised the ex-bunny would hit the trail
within 24 hours.
French float franc
The French government decided yesterday to conserve
its resources of foreign currency by in effect allowing
the franc to float free, affected only by supply and de-
mand. The move was motivated by concern over the
crippling effect of skyrocketing oil prices, spokespersons
said. Government spokesman Jean Philippe Lecat said
the franc would be set adrift and the government would
not support it on international markets for the next six
months. Financial experts in Paris said the action could
result in a defacto devaluation of the franc against .the
dollar and other currencies if its value dips markedly
when markets open on Monday.

Soviets expelled from China
The People's Republic of China has expelled two Rus-
sian diplomats, their wives and a Soviet interpreter from
Peking yesterday on charges of spying, but officials in
Moscow say they know nothing about it. The five are
accused of making "secret contact" Tuesday night with
two persons - Li Hung-shu, identified only as "a Soviet-
sent agent," and another unidentified person-on the out-
skirts of Peking. The Russians handed over and re-
ceived "intelligence, counter-intelligence, counter-revolu-
tionary documents, a radio transmitter and receiver, a
communication time-table, a means of secret writing,
forged border passes and other facilities and money for
espionage activities," according to a high-ranking Chi-

Manhunter Toni Hunt, who went to London deter-
mined to catch Queen Elizabeth's brother-in-law, Lord
Snowdon, for a nude photo, yesterday chased him back
across the Atlantic to the United States. Hunt, who
works for Playgirl magazine, is after Snowdon for a
nude centerfield picture. "I'm convinced he's trying to
run away from me," she said, "but I won't take no for
an answer." Despite setbacks in her quest for Snowdon's
body, Hunt said her London excursion was successful:
She has received nude photos from "hundreds" of men.
Writer claims harassment
The Soviet security police - known as the KGB -
yesterday finished a 42-hour search of the home of Soviet
writer Viktor Nekrasov in an apparent intensification of
an official drive against liberal writers. Dissident sources
said the KGB removed personal notes, books, manu-
scripts, and all foreign publications from Nekrasov's
apartment in Kiev. Among articles confiscated were sev-
eral connected with Nobel prize-winning author Alexan-
A quick-thinking ten-year-old boy took credit yesterday
for saving an Oregon school bus with 40 grade school
students aboard when the bus driver suffered a fatal
heart attack on a steep hill. Police said the bus was go-
ing up a steep incline when the driver, Ruth Bond, col-
lapsed at the wheel. Bond died a short time later, but ten
year old Jack Wytcherley saw her fall from her seat and
rushed forward to hit the brakes and turn off the engine.
"I just thought of it myself," said Jack when asked if he
had been told what to do in such a situation. A police
spokesperson said that if Wychterley hadn't controlled
the bus, "it certainly would have rolled back down the

WASHINGTON-The 93rd Congress returns for its 1974 session
Monday with possible impeachment of President Nixon and the
energy shortage its overriding immediate concerns.
These two issues are certain to dominate the early weeks of the

is a case for impeachment of the President over Watergate and other

tax returns to see whether his payments were too low because of
controversial tax exemptions.

sufficient evidence has been gathered on a $100,000 political contribu-

IF THE HOUSE Judiciary Committee votes that an impeach-
ment hearing is justified, the full House must vote on the measure,
in effect charging the President with "high crimes and misdemean-
ors." The Senate then acts as a trial jury, voting whether to re-
move the President from office.
While members of Congress continue to investigate Watergate
and related matters, a grand jury prepares to probe into mysterious
gaps in tape recordings of Nixon's conversations.
Meanwhile President Nixon has scheduled a Monday morning
meeting with House and Senate leaders to discuss the energy ques-
CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS also will start on the severity of
the shortage. Other hearings will continue on fuel statistics.
Deputy energy chief John Sawhill told a panel of early-returning
congressmen Friday that "there is no doubt in my mind that we do
indeed have an energy shortage," despite reports that heating oil
stocks are 30 per cent higher than last year.
But Rep. Silvio Conte (R-Mass.), said he's beginning to agree
with many of his constituents who "feel it is a trumped up crisis by
the oil companies to make more money.
EXECUTIVES FROM the country's seven largest oil companies
undoubtedly will be asked about it when they testify before Sen.
Henry Jackson's (D-Wash.) investigations subcommittee on Monday.
Federal energy chief William Simon, who has called charges of
profiteering by the oil companies "a widespread misconception," also
is scheduled to testify.
In announcing the hearings, Jackson said that doubts about the
severity of fuel shortages clouded the future of the emergency
energy bill which the Senate leadership has said would have top
priority when Congress returned.
SIMON HAS SAID he needs the bill before he can make such
voluntary conservation measures as the 10 gallon limit on gaso

WASHINGTON o-President Nixon said yesterday he
wanted to assure the American people he would not allow oil
companies to make windfall profits from the energy crisis.
"The sacrifices made by the American people =n the energy
crisis must be for the benefit of all the people and not just for
the benefit of big business," he said in a 15-minute radio
NIXON ASSERTED that the energy shortage is real, but vowed
Americans will never have to pay $1 for a gallon of gas. And he claimed
voluntary efforts to cut energy consumption, if continued, mean "that
we can prevent hardships this winter and that we can avoid gas
rationing this spring."
The President acknowledged that many people are asking if there
really is an energy shortage.
"The shortages are genuine," he said. "They may become more
severe, and they are potentially dangerous."
SHOULD AMERICANS slacken their energy conservation efforts,
he threatened, "then the full force of the energy crisis will be brought
home to Americans in a most devastating fashion, and there will be no

The President also laid stress on
his goal to make the nation self-

1980 and, without elaborating,prom-

these requests at the very top of

C. J. Kupec swished a 20-foot
jumpshot as the buzzer sounded
yesterday to give the Michigan
Wolverines a 84-82 victory over
Michigan State in onekof the most
exciting, nerve-wracking games
ever played at Crisler Arena.
The game-winning shot capped
an incredibly tense final three min-
utes of basketball which s a w
the Wolverines come from behind,
go ahead three different times only
to have the Spartans tie it up, and
then almost blow the game in the
final fifteen seconds.

last night on what progress, if any,
has been made.

sued yesterday, indicated the two
sides are still a long way from a

mostly economic - remain unre-

THE FINAL flurry started with
3:16 left and Michigan down, 76-
73. Campy Russell sank two free
throws in a one-on-one situation,
and Wayman Britt tied it with
another foal shot.sThen, after
Britt missed his second attempt,
Russell stole the ball in the State
backcourt and fed Britt for a lay-
up that put Michigan ahead for the
first time since early in the second
half, and sent the howling mob of
11,734 into ectasy.
But the Spartans would not let
up. A few moments later, with
1:51 to go, Joe Johnson fouled out
and MSU's Mike Robin'son convert-
ed a one-and-one to tie it at 78-all.
With 1:35 left, Russell took a
gorgeous pass from Britt, and put
the home club back on top, 80-78.
Less than ten seconds later, Rob-
inson drilled in an equalizer from
the outside. Kupec then dropped in
an 18-footer from the corner, but
Robinson once again matched it
with a shot from the same dis-
tance, to knot it at 82-82.
WITH 49 SECONDS left, thedWol-
verines called time out, and at-
tempted to work the clock down
to less than fifteen seconds and
then set up a last shot. Then Lion-
el Worrell, in for the banished
Johnson, spied an open lane to the
basket and attempted a lay-up
with about fifteen second remain-

OVERBERGER SAYS he wants

AT THE ENERGY seminar,
