PROJECT COST $2.5 MILLION:

Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) - The FBI in Chi- na
cago paid $2.5 million to recruit an ar- si
my of more than 5,000 spies who in- tI
formed on Chicago area residents and tI
organizations between 1966 and 1976,
court records showed yesterday. R
During, the same period, the FBI tI
opened files on about 27,900 individuals si
and organizations it regarded as possi- ag
ble security risks or extremists, the
documents showed. co
THE SPYING operation is the largest
by the FBI disclosed to date. Last Sep- t
tember the FBI said it had paid more li
than $1.6 million to 300 volunteer in- re
formers who spied on the Socialist JU
Workers Party from 1960 through 1976. C
In that case, the FBI also acknowledg- su
ed using more than 1,000 other inform- L
ers; it provided no information, how- go
ever, on how much it paid those spies.

The FBI made the admission in re-
sponse to a question dealing with burg-
lary and so-called "black bag" jobs.
The FBI has also answered similar
questions from the Alliance to End Re-
pression, a local organization active in
combating police surveillance which
also has a spying suit pending. The
agency's answers to those questions
have not yet been made available. Gut-
man, who is also the. attorney for the
alliance, said he expects additional
admission of FBI burglaries.
"The massiveness of the political
spying and the fact that the FBI freely
used illegal methods, that it felt itself
above the law and felt it could break in-
to offices whenever it wanted is a very
frightening fact," Gutman said.
Rachel Rosen, director of the Bill of
Rights Committee, said the group was
"outraged" when it learned of the
break-in.

concerns of the Mexican government
about how undocumented workers
are dealt with." He added:
"The citizens of my country want
our laws on entry enforced - this is
the responsibility of any American
government - but we want to do this
without creating problems for Mex-
ico. There will be no massive deport-
ations or roundups."
Mondale and his wife went sight-

During* the vice president's two-
day visit he also is expected to dis-
cuss such issues as narcotics control,
'trade, tourism, human rights and the
Treaty of Tlatelolco, designed to
make the Caribbean and Latin
America a nuclear weapon-free zone.
A political cartoon in a Mexico City
newspaper illustrated the Mexican
attitude. It showed Mondale carrying
a bound migrant worker in one hand
and a contract for Canadian natural
gas in the other with the statement,,
"Now we can discuss the price of

said; "I don't think we've taken enough
time" working on the agreement.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-De-
troit), said, "A tactical judgement
has to be made when they blow the
whistle. Are you going to go along
with them or attack them?" Roach
went on to say that in this case he
would "go along" with HEW and wait
for the proper time for an "attack."

Discussion around the Regent's
table about an alumni building was
more characteristically calm. The
second day of this month's two-day
gathering began with a presentation
by Robert Foreman, executive direc-
tor of the Alumni Association, on a
new structure, just north of Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater on East Wash-
ington Street, to house alumni activ-
ity.
The Alumni Association already
has one large contribution which, in
addition to another expected gift, will
total $1 million towards the construc-
tion of the proposed 15,000 square foot
brick building. The University would
supply only utility costs if approved.

began because the Regent's meeting
ran late.
"I used to say we should not, as a
great institution of the state and the
country, be responding to a kind of
quasi-regulatory agency (HEW) in-
stead of setting out our own plan for
opening up the system," Power said
to the group.
"What I think we need to do more
of is look at our own data and come
up with our own plan;" she suggest-
ed. "If one of the greatest research.
institutions of the world can't look
into itself, who can? We need to get
our own house in order."

Pakistani]
KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) - The
chairman of Pakistan International
Airlines (PIA) overpowered a
masked hijacker who was holding 22
passengers aboard the plane at
Karachi airport yesterday, a PIA
spokesman said.
The hijacker, who said he com-
mandeered the plane to obtain
cancer treatment in India, fired his
pistol during the tussle and wounded
PIA Chairman Nur Khan in the hip.
Then the crew and passengers set
upon the hijacker and beat him
before he was dragged from the air-
craft, the spokesman said.
KHAN, WHO HAD boarded the
plane to negotiate with the hijacker,
was taken to a hospital. There was no
immediate report on his condition.
No injuries were reported among the
freed hostages.
The hijacker told police he was a
Pakistani army deserter from the
engineering corps. He took over the
twin-engine Fokker 27 turboprop on a
domestic flight yesterday morning
and ordered it to India, but allowed
the pilot to land here for refueling.
Salim Lakhani, a .hostage aboard
the aircraft, said Khan had complet-
ed his talks with the hijaacker and
turned to leave, but suddenly turned
and jumped on the gunman.
THE HIJACKER was dragged
from the plane after the beating, at
about 4 p.m. yesterday. Officials said
the bombs he claimed he was
carrying were fakes.
The hijacker said he was aPunjabi
whose original name was Nazir
Mohammad. He said he hadsadopted
the name of Aslam Khan and was
working in a hotel in Sukur.
He released 19 of the 41 passengers
and crew members during earlier
negotiations. Besides the demand for

to reconvert the West Quad offices and
the $200,000 it would cost to reconvert
the hotel rooms is far less than the $8
million price tag for a new dorm, such
alternatives would not provide for as
much space. Two hundred twenty-nine
dorm spaces could be created in West
Quad and only 150 in the Union.
"IF ONLY THE conversion options
are taken, it will take care of the people
in lounges, but by next year we'd be
crowded again," said Synk. "The
problem is just getting worse,"
In addition to new construction, the
University has also considered and re-
jected -the options of buying four local
properties for student housing: Ann
Arbor Inn, Huron Towers, the old' St.
JosephMercy Hospital and University
Towers.
Acquiring the properties was not
recommended for reasons ranging
from poor physical condition of the.
buildings to difficult adaption to dorm
use.
