The mysterious LPF
If you applied recently for a job at the Union Station, the
garish new fast food joint in the Union basement, you may have
been rated on your LPF. LPF, say several workers at the
eatery, stands for Looks, Personality and Figure. LPF is
measured on a five point scale.

of smuggling dope into England. One constable thought he over-
heard the word "hashish" when the Indians described the con-
tents of a box they were carrying. Later, however, it was found
that the box contained the ashes of a cremated relative and the
Indians were escorted to a river to -scatter them. Hashish to

A survey released yesterday by the National Association of State
Universities and Land-Grant College shows that the University's

schools. Compare that with in-state fees, which aren't even in
the top ten. Don't cry, non-residents.

Budget hike deferred;
four year review slated
By JUDY RUSKIN
The University's Residential College (RC) received a vote
of confidence yesterday when the literary college faculty
voted to continue the program despite heavy criticism.
The passage of the proposals is in effect a milestone for
RC, ending the college's experimental status. Dean James
Robertson, director of the Residential College, says he feels
the college is no longer on trial.
The faculty approved a series of proposals concerning
the administration of RC's programs. However, no decision
could be reached on the issue of the college's increased bud-
Although the original motion was to be a decision on
whether or not to accept the proposals of the LSA executive
committee on the RC, a motion -- - -
was introduced to completely phase T

The new budget may be present-

P &A pay

raise salaries in accordance with
recommendations of a recent per-
sonnel study, and will begin pay-

recommendations of the study,

yesterday, "but we're waiting for
reaction from campus groups."
Therecently published Hayes re-
port disclosed that 13 per cent of
the University's professional and
administrative staff (P & A) is
paid below recommended mini-
mum salary levels.
The study recommended that
$322,000 be used to bring their sal-
aries up to the minimum levels.

SAIGON 0P) - The United
States last night pulled its F111
fighter bombers out of combat, 1
hours after lifting a five day
news embargo of the loss of one
of the controversial jets over ;
North Vietnam last week on its ,
first combat mission since re-
turning to the war zone._
The two crewmen of the down-
ed plane are missing.-
Informants said the supersonic
swing-wing jets are now restrict-
ed to training missions from their
home base in Takhli, Thailand.
The U. S. Command, asked
about the withdrawal of the
planes from combat, said it had
no comment to make.
The F111 has been dogged for
several years by political, pro-
duction and operational prob-
lems. A loss because of some

the case, could generate new'con-

The command said the plane's
apparent loss was announced five
days after it disappeared, be-

the command hoped to soften the
impact on public opinion.

withhold announcement of U. S.
aircraft losses while rescue op-

However, sources said no one
really knew where to look for
the missing F111 and, though
search planes probed for signs,
there were no radio signals
heard from the downed crew-
men. In delaying announcement

kok, and North Vietnam an-

sisted on keeping an, embargo

Saigon from reporting it, under
penalty of losing their accredita-
"The longer we hold the story,
the worse it gets," said one
source. "It's a bad story no mat-
ter how you play it, but the
F111 is a good airplane. The
guys who fly it think it's a good
airplane. It has the best safety
record of fighter planes newly
introduced into the Air Force in-
ventory. But it is much maligned
because of things like this."
One factor that makes it diffi-
cult to locate the wreckage is
that, unlike other jets, the Fil1s
do not always fly in formation.
Often they fly alone - their
course .is computerized and the
only thing left for the pilot is to
