Milk run
A well-timed combination of brains, courage, and powdered
milk saved East Quad from an electrical fire last night. Paul
Kempen, '76, was walking down a third floor hallway at about
7:15 when a cloud of smoke from a nearby room attracted his
curiousity. Upon investigating further, he discovered an electric
stove ablaze and immediately pulled the nearest alarm. As non-
plussed quaddies scurried outside into the cold, Kempen and his
friend Art Okonon, '76, cracked open the hall's glass-enclosed
fire extinguisher case only to discover that the extinguisher
contained water and was hence unsafe for use on an electrical
fire. Racing against time and a billowing cloud of smoke, the
intrepid pair searched the burning kitchen and came up with a
last resort-a carton of powdered milk. They then managed to
control the blaze until the arrival of firemen who hosed the area
and reported "no structural damage" to the building. Kempen's
feelings about his heroic powdering effort? "Well, there was a lot
of smoke, but we just covered our eyes and went in." Whew.
Willson clams up.. ,
Dr. Robert Willson, whose book "Obstetrics and Gynecology"
has raised the ire of a local women's advocate group, has de-
clined to comment on the attack on his professional competence.
The Advocates for Medical Information, the outraged group,
say they will burn Willson's "sexist" text on the Diag at noon.
By the way of Louis Graff, medical center spokesman, The
Daily has learned Willson is "deeply distressed" that burning
books would be used as a means of "disagreeing with or dis-
puting professionally published material."
. .. hile the med library locks up
Meanwhile, the Medical Center Library has put its six
copies of the controversial book under wraps fearing that they
might be burned. Says David Maxfield, head of the library:
"The books have been placed in the rare book cage until they've
finished burning somebody else's copies. When they cease to be
hot we'll put them back on the shelves," he added. "Paranoia
strikes deep.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass.-For those of us that believe in get-

a new twist in mind-altered education. The college announced
yesterday that it would offer . a three-credit course in wine
appreciation next term to give novices "a broad introduction to
the wines of the world." While making no mention of whether
the course would tackle beer or mixed drinks, the college says
this appetizing course will culminate in a wine-tasting examina-
tion-not to be confused with a drinking contest. Ah, college . .

Continued winter. Our temperatures will be normal
for mid-February with highs of 32-37 in spite of today's
sunshine. Cyclone "Henry I" will be moving northeastward

off Nova Scotia. Following him will be a polar flow of cold
air which will give us low temps tonight of 20-25.

TWO RESIDENTS OF EASTRAL BEACH, ten miles north of Monroe, paddle to safety yesterday from their waterlogged home
on Lake Erie. The puppies were among dozens of pets that were stranded by the rising lake waters.

"We figured we were gonna get clobbered.

near a second
Monday night,
into his home.
We did," said

By yesterday, his lawn was covered in silt, his ground floor
was ruined and his house entirely surrounded by the swirling grey
waters of Lake Erie.
The story was repeated all along the 50 mile eastern shore-
line of the Great Lake yesterday in the aftermath of the worst
flooding to hit Monroe County in anybody's memory.
"I never paid too much attention to the lake before," sighed
Harold Greashaber as he surveyed the watery scene around his
home at Detroit Beach, five miles north of Monroe. "I've been
living here 23 years-and I never thought I needed insurance."
Like about 1,000 other people, Greashaber was driven from his
home by the advancing lake. Ile doesn't know when he will be
able to return.
While refugees by the thousand streamed inland to find refuge
with friends, relatives and the temporary shelters established by
the Red Cross, officials kept au anxious eye on the weather for
a repeat of the savage northeasterly winds that pushed the lake
inland Monday night.

"You never know what the winds will do," said Monroe County
Red Cross director Beth Winters.
The problem in Monroe County can be equated to the diffi-
culty that would be experienced by a community living at the
edge of a full saucer. The lake is so full and so shallow that any
prolonged northeasterly or easterly wind simply pushes the water
to the west. When that happens, there is flooding all along the
low lying areas between Detroit and Toledo.
But though there has been flooding before, there has never
been flooding the like of which was seen yesterday.
By nightfall, relief workers estimated that up to eight million
dollars of damage had been done.
Gov. William Milliken, touring the area by helicopter in the
early afternoon, remarked: "What a mess."
"I haven't seen anything like it since 1948," said a relief
worker at St. Charles Catholic Church in Newport.
St. Charles acted as one of five emergency relief centers es-
tablished by the Red Cross to cope with the flooding.
In scenes that were repeated along the coast, dozens of
refugees huddled under blankets and sipped soup while they kept
an anxious ear to the radio weather forecasts.
Monroe County Undersheriff Walter Trowbridge said that
although some sporadic looting of appliances had occurred in the
stricken areas, a force of some 85 deputies and 80 National
Guardsmen had the situation under control.

guerrilla leaders vowed revenge
for the commando raids by esca-
lating their war on Israel and pos-
sibly targeting U. S. firms in the
Middle East for terrorist attacks.
The Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization (PLO) charged that the
U.S. Central Intelligence Agency
heloed carry out the attack, and
said: "The revolution will con-
tinue to p'irs>e the enemv every-
where, inside and outside occu-
pied territory."
A sookesman at the U. S. Em-
bassy denied the charge, and the
State Denartment said in Wash-
ington that the charges were "ut-
terly without foundation."
Security measures around the
U.S..Embasssv were tightened after
some 150 Palestinian students tried
to march on the seaside building.
Trooos in armored cars and per-
sonnel carriers trned them back.
In Tel Aviv, the chief of staff
warned that Israel may hit the
Lebanese caoital again unless au-
thorities curb the activities of arm-
ed Palestinian oraanizations,
"It is impossible to honor the
sovereignty of Lebanon and its
capital when there is comnlete free-
dom for the terrorists, their bases
and commands in Lebanese terri-
tory," said Lt. Gen. David Elazer.
President Franjieh summoned
the Lebanese government i n t o
emergency session. .
In the past, Lebanon has protest-
ed against Israeli raids to the
U.N. Security Council and tighten-,
ed control of Palestinians.
The Israeli attack, the second
in Lebanon since a raid on refugee
campus in the north- Feb. 20, oc-
curred 12 hours after a Palestinian
strike against Israel in Cyprus.
But police investigators learned
that an advance party arrived in
Lebanon several days ago with,
false passports and rented the cars
the Israelis used to reach their
A Defense Ministry statement
said four Lebanese were killed and
20 wounded in the two-and-a-half-
hour postmidnight raid, the first
Israeli strike inside the city.
The Lebanese statement made no
mention of Palestinian casualties
and there was no immediate an-!
4ouncement from the PLO on the
number killed or wounded.
In addition to the three slain
leaders, at least eight other Pales-
tinians are known to have been
killed and more than a dozen
wounded. In addition, an Italian
grandmother was gunned down at
her apartment door.
Two Israelis were killed and two
more were wounded by the Pales-
tinians, a senior officer in Tel Aviv
Also yesterday, seven Arabs
were charged with murdermin the

tacks on Israelis in Nicosia, Cy-
prus - but an eighth was report-
ed to be still at large.

sales back
to norma
Ln-'al retail meat sales during
the first part of this week seem to
indicate there will be no further
mass abstention from meat con-
sumtion following last week's na-
tion-wide boycott.
Representatives of both Wrigley's
and A&P supermarkets report that
statewide meat sales have recover-
ed completely from last week. Lo-
cally, most independent grocers
also report meat sales .have re-
turned to normal or near-normal
A majority of the shoppers who
say they supported the meat boy-
cott also say they will begin buying
meat again this week. One shopper
commented, "It would be impos-
sible for me to continue to plan
meatless meals for an indefinite
Another shopper remarked, "I'm
buying meat again, but I've cut
down on it, not so much because
of any type of boycott, but because
I can't afford it!"
Monday all grocers were re-
quired to have posted ceiling prices
on their meat. However, since ceil-
ing prices were determined by
the highest price at which a cut
of meat soldduring March, rates
vary from store to store. For ex-
ample, the ceiling price, on ham-
burger is 98 cents a pound at A&P
but $1.05 at Wrigley's.
Most markets expect their meat
prices to remain at these, ceiling
levels. An A&P spokesman in De-
troit said, "Any cut in meat prices
is going to have to come to us
(from farmers or wholesaler~s) be-
fore we can pass it. along to shop-
A Wrigley spokesman noted that
"some meat items are being sold
at below our ceiling prices," but
claimed Wrigley ceilings are no-
ticeably higher than those of other
Although it is difficult now to
judge the effects of the meat boy-
cott, many independent meat re-
tailers reoort that sales did not
decline all that much.
Among local grocers contacted
only Bob Dennison, manager of
Murphy's\ Market on W. Stadium,
reported a large decline in meat
sales last week. According to Den-
nison, fresh meat sales were only
one-third their normal level.
Ray Rutledge, manager of Steeb

SAIGON A4.-The United States
began airlifting fuel yesterday
into Cambodia 's capital Phnom
Penh, whose main supply routes
have been cut or harassed by
communist command forces,. .
The airlift was announced by
the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh
and the Pentagon in Washington.
A C-130 Hercules transport came
in with the first load of fuel in a
huge plastic bladder and unload-
ed it at Phnom Penh's airport.
The Pentagon disclosed that
since July, an average of 10
cargo planes daily have, been
carrying supplies, mostly mili-
tary, to the Cambodian capital.
Pentagon spokesman J e r r y
Friedheim declined to give the
maximum number of flights in

any one day for the new airlift
but said, "This is not a major

shut down electricity generators
and water pumps.

Law admissions t

Clarce orecasts a
god1lfe n 2001
Better things for better living through chemistry: It's all within
reach if we play our cards right. This was the optimistic message of
Arthur C. Clarke in the final Future Worlds Series lecture yesterday.
Clarke, a British rocketry expert and author of "2001: A Space
Odyssey," made what he called "an outline map of the future,"
describing those technological advances the audience could expect to
see by the year 2001. Speaking before a packed house at Hill Aud.,
he envisioned a "family automat" containing a month's food supply
for a whole family, yet weighing only a hundred pounds.
The housewife of the future, he explained, will add water and
cook dinner in ten minutes. Clarke predicted that in the future humans
will eat artificial steaks which look and taste like the real thing, yet
cost only fifteen cents a pound.
"Natural meat production is so inefficient that it may be horribly
expensive or even nrnhihitive within the centurv." he added.

The University law school's admission stand-
ards, long known as among the most rigorous in
the nation, hl-wve been especially competitive dur-
ing the seventies.
The "big bulge" came in 1970 when applications
for the freshman class jumped to 3,740 from the
2,810 of the previous year. The number of appli-
cations rose to a high of 4,915 ror the 1972-73 school
year and are estimated to be about 4,600 for 1973-

is slightly more than ten per cent of the total law
school enrollment of 1,170.
Minority applicants "compete among them-
selves" for places in the entering freshman class,
rather than in the pool of all applicants, said Wat-

the minority students is about 3.000, and their av-
