A state of national danger was
proclaimed yesterday in Cam-
bodia amid a worsening military
situation in whichAmerican B-
52 bombers flew overnight mis-
sions to relieve Communist pres-
sure around Phnom Penh.
Keth Sana, the minister at-
tached to the prime minister's
office, told a national assembly
session yesterday the state of na-
tional danger was a' result 'of the
resurgence of "subversive and
military activities on the part of

independence and territorial in-

He was the second minister to
offer his resignation this week.
The departure of Economic Min-
ister Ith Thuy was officially an-
nounced Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Secretary of De-
fense E 11 i o t Richardson an-
nounced yesterday that "the pos-

sibility exists that the situation
might become dire enough" in
Cambodia to require a U.S. air
supply lift for Phnom Penh.
U.S. offiicals elsewhere said
reports from the U.S. Embassy
in Phnom Penh indicate the
Cambodia capital is quiet and.
that ah imminent all-out attack
by Communist forces appears to
be unlikely.
But these officials balanced
the serene assessment with a
note of caution. That is, they.
said ,the possibility of an unex-
pected military surge should not
be discounted.

Also, they noted that April 13
is the Cambodian New Year and
that judging by past Communist
holiday attacks in South Vietnam
it is an opportune time for a big
military push.
Richardson acknowledged the
possibility of the airlift in re-
sponse to a question. He said U.S.
bombing in Cambodia is aimed
at preventing guerrillas from
cutting off road and river supply
routes into Phnom Penh.
During the night, at least two
waves of B-52 bombers shook the
capital as they struck at suspect-
ed Communist concentrations ir

Phnom Penh made no announce-

several points 15 to 30 miles

Sounds fishy
The high cost of buying meat may be driving people to
crime. At least that is a theory in the robbery of. 48 fish from
the Exotic Fish Shop in Scio Township. The $700 worth of fish
was stolen after a rear door was forced open. Will chickens
be next?

What is reality?
NEW YORK - "Hisssstorical!" shouted Salvador Dali with
fury while explaining his portrait of Alice Cooper, a chronographi-
cal holograph. The new art form adds the dimension of time
to produce a movement of 360 degrees. "Dali only makes ex-
hibits for people who can understand nothing, people such' as
you," said Dali at a news conference Tuesday at Knoedler Gal-
lery. "Today, nobody understands anything. Alice Cooper is
the best exponent of total confusion." Alice, wearing a black
open shirt with a string of large pearls, and slick leather pants,
said "Dali is possibly more confusing than I am. I never under-
stand anything he says. Maybe that's why we get along so well."
Lennon's madness
NEW YORK - If you haven't been able to find the way to
Shangri-la, Glocamora, or Brigadoon, you should consider the
new nation of Nutopia. In a news conference Monday, John
Lennon described it as "conceptual country. It has no land,
no boundaries, no passports." Lennon said he plans to apply
for U.N. admission for Nutopia.
Where have you been.
RABAUL, NEW BRITAIN - From the vast jungle growth
emerged a grizzled, naked tribesman, who claims to have been
in seclusion since the Japanese invasion of the South Pacific
island of New Ireland 30 years ago. This "Wild Man of New
Ireland" says he lived on uncooked root crops and fruit and
= lived in hand-made shelters until found by a villager from near-
by Put Put. So far, local government officials believe most of
his story, although they find it hard to conceive of anyone on
the island going unnoticed for three decades.

for the American Meat Institute in Chicago said,
"It's pretty much a supply and demand thing."
A spokesman for the National Association of

Egg prices also were up, following recent
rises in wholesale costs of eggs and poultry.

Council last night declared the all-campus election officially
invalid due to massive fraud, and made way for a new elec-
tion to take place later this month.
The results of the LSA government election, announced
yesterday, will stand. All other sections of the ballot, includ-
ing two proposals, the University Housing Council election
and all SGC races, will be subject to an SGC decision on a
new election tonight.
Elections Director Ken Newbury demonstrated to an
emergency Council meeting last night that last week's elec-
tion was riddled with fraud.
Newbury estimated that up to 1,400 ballots in the elec-
tion were fraudulent, rough- --

Three hundred and three have
been identified conclusively as

In addition, approximately 1,000
ballots with differing sticker num-

exist, according to computer esti-
mates made by Newbury and his
election staff. '
Recent investigation has turned
up ID numbers forged from those
of alumni who attended the Univer-
sity more than 40 years ago.
The computer used to tabulate
the results has been unable to dis-
tinguish between the fraudulent

all indiscriminately.
That has been the basis for the
invalidation of the election.

cost between $7,000 and $10,000.

A sampling of schools within the University shows that student

careers due to fluctuations in the job market and chapging social
The nursing and natural resources schools have substantially in-
creased their enrollments during the past few years, while the School
of Engineering and some departments within the literary college have
registered a decrease.
As Clyde Vroman, director of undergraduate admissions, explains
the shift, "Students want careers where they can help people. They
wish to participate in serving people and improving society."
Evart Ardis, director of career planning and placement, believes
the changing interests are "symptomatic of the times we live in."
"It is a reaction growing out of the Vietnam war, and the ac-
tivist period of the sixties. Students are grappling ,with today's prob-
lems and they want the social concern they feel to be reflected in their
life style," he said.
