Lesbian mother's reprieve
An admitted lesbian seeking custody of her adopted daughter has
won a second chance in court, even though she's not sure she wants it.
The Michigan Court of Appeals Friday sent the case involving
Maragreth Miller, 38, a University instructor, back to Oakland County
Circuit Judge Frank Frederick Ziem, who has denied an earlier
petition for custody of the child. "That's good news and bad news,"
said Miller when she learned of the ruling. The good news is the ap-
peals court apparently still feels there is a reasonable question in the
case. The bad news is that we go right back to Judge Ziem, who has
already made it clear he doesn't like lesbians and is quite sure they
don't make good mothers." The daughter, Jillian, 11, has staved with
her mother during the appeal process even though Ziem originally or-
dered her placed in her father's custody. The appeals court ruled that
Ziem should have given more consideration to the child's stated
preference to stay with her mother.

It used to be that nostalgia was part of a fond remembrance of the
days gone by. Now, the U.S. Air Force is using it to dredge up some
not-so-fond memories. The U2 spy plane, which made Cold War
headlines when the Russians downed Francis Gary Powers' CIA craft,
will be put into production again and assigned, of all things, to peer
across the Soviet bloc borders. The Air Force says this time it will be
done "from a safe distance," but isn't that what they said the last
,just like in the comics.'
In Garry Trudeau's comic strip Doonesbury, Uncle Duke the United
States emissary to China becomes emotionally involved with his in-
terpreter. Well history, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, has
repeated itself. Leonard Woodcock has fallen in love with one of his
staff members while serving as the U.S. Ambassador in China. Wood-
cock announced that he will seek a divorce from his wife, Loula, from
whom he has been separated for 16 years, in order to marry a member
of his Peking staff. Declining to name the American woman he will
marry, Woodcock said, "It won't cause any problems, but I'd rather
they didn't learn of it through the press." Good luck Leonard
and.. . well, whoever.
Just because most of our own snow troubles have been forgotten, we
tend to forget other people have theirs. Take Boston, for instance. One
staff reporter's parents told her "the snow is within two inches of the
top of the front door . . we had to dig a 2 x 4 space in front of the
garage door to let the dog out." Out there, they've noticed the same
things we did. In addition to all the snow came lots of unfamiliar frien-
dliness. When the state of emergency was declared after Monday'y
blizzard, those infamous Boston drivers had to do without their
cars-and hence, without much of their famed rudeness. "It's just not
like when people have cars&then they honk the horn and yell out the
window, 'You jerk!' This is quiet, a nice change of pace," said one air-
port worker who made it to work on foot.
On the outside.. .
... those of you who were waiting for winter to return won't have to
wait long. It appears that our brief respite from demoralizing con-
ditions will end late Sunday night. Our forecast calls forclear skies
this morning with increasing cloudiness in the afternoon. The high will
be 30 degrees. Light snow will begin late tonight and the low will be 14
degrees. On Monday the snow will continue with a slight chance of
freezing rain mixed in for a little spice-and some slipping on the ice
one would imagine. The high Monday will be 28 degrees. Snow will
continue through Monday night with an accumulation of 3 to 4 inches
by Tuesday. Don't pack away those snow shovels. It's only February.

officials would travel to _constanta to
meet him there.
Sadat, speaking at a news conference
after talks with Peres at the 17th'cen-
tury Klosheim Palace near Salzburg,
described the meeting as a resumption
of the stalled Egyptian-Israeli peace
drive begun last November when he
made his historic journey to Jerusalem.

Sadat disclosed he had invited the op-

Salzburg as a negotiator and had

Sadat said details of future talks with

to the peace table.
Kreisky, who met privately with Saat

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -
Ethiopian troops, backed by repeated
air strikes, are advancing along the
nation's vital rail link with the tiny
state of Djibouti as part of the offensive
to drive Somali forces from Ethiopia's
Ogaden region, Western diplomatic
sources said yesterday.
In the past few days, the sources said
Ethiopian ground forces have advanced
some 55 miles from the town of Melo to
Adigela in their bid to regain full con-
trol of the railroad that links Addis
Ababa with Djibouti.
THE RAILROAD has been cut since
June as a result of sabotage attacks by
pro-Somali forces, and Ethiopia has
since had to resort to bringing in
military and other supplies by road
from the Red Sea port of Assab.
The Ethiopians are meeting with less
success, say the sources, in their drive
for the strategic town of Jijiga from the
ancient, walled town of Harar. They
control territory about 12 miles beyond
Harar on the road to Jijiga and hold
positions as far as Babile, said the

LOVE AND DEATH
Director-WOODY ALLEN (1975)
This film is rich with the sounds of classical music and the
(distorted) images of Russian literature and Ingmar Bergman.
Diane Keaton and Woody Allen clumsily masquerade them-
selves as Spanish nobility in a futile attempt to assassinate
Napoleon. A madcap adventure of outrageous humor.
