'LAST CHANCE' COMPROMISE
The LSA faculty reached new heights inactivity yesterday
when, after an hour and a half of discussion, they failed to keep
their quorum and adjourned. Maintaining a three month tradi-
tion, the faculty was unable to take a vote on a proposal to allow
students to gain up to 60 hours of credit without attending classes
by passing an exam. In other "action" the LSA Joint Student-
Faculty Committee presented a proposal on grading reform
which may ble voted on in a later meeting if anyone shows up.
Study, study, study
For those of you trying to make up all the work you didn't
do this term, there is good news. The UGLI will be open extra
hours during Study and Examination days. Starting Thursday,
Dec. 14 the library will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.
Fifty pounds of hashish was found by customs officials yes-
terday hidden in secret compartments of cages holding two
Himalayan bears on their way to California from Napal. Four
people were arrested and one bear shot. Meanwhile, a con-
gressional panel concluded after an 18-month intensive study
that excessive use of sleeping pills and tranquilizers constitutes
a major national health problem leading to violence and death.
They urge stricter Federal controls.

Strongman Gen. Oswaldo Lopez Arellano took power in Hon-
duras yesterday after that country's 137th revolution in 151 years,
ousting civilian President Ramon Ernesto Cruz in a bloodless
military coup and placing him under house arrest. A communique
broadcast by, the Defense Council in Tegucigalpa, the Tonduran
capital, accused Cruz of plunging Honduras-an impoverished
"Banana Republic" whose economy is based on vast banana
plantations set up by U. S. companies - into economic chaos.
Donald Rumsfeld, now head of the Cost of Living Council,
was nominated by President Nixon for thejob which the Presi-
dent was said to regard as "one of the most important diplo-
matic posts in Europe." Rumsfeld, 40, a handsome and person-
able former Illinois congressman, has had no previous diplo-
matic experience. Rumsfeld will get the title of ambassador in
the NATO post where he replaces David Kennedy, former
Secretary of the Treasury and roving emissary for Nixon in the
international economic field.
The largest office building in the world-The Pentagon, with
28,000 employes-was without normal telephone service for 22
minutes yesterday. But the Defense Department headquarters
on the shore of the Potomac River across from downtown Wash-
ington did not lose its so-called "secure lines" providing links to
military installations, a spokesman said. And the Washington-
Moscow "hot line" did not cease functioning, the Pentagon of-
ficial added. "We still don't know what caused thestrouble,"
spokesman John McGuire said after the problem was cleared
up. "It takes some time to go into all those black boxes and
figure out what happened."
