Dutch marines free

hostages
ASSEN, Netherlands (AP) - Dutch
marines staged a two-pronged assault
yesterday to overrun a building held for
28 hours by South Moluccan terrorists
and free 70 hostages at the moment the
gunmen had threatened to start
executing them.
"If the government didn't meet their
demands, they said they would begin
killing two hostages each half hour,
starting at 2:30 p.m., half an hour after
the deadline they set," a minister said.
ONE OFFICIAL quoted the gunmen
as saying the first to be shot would be
two local politicians among the
hostages. He said they threatened to
kill all the hostages - 55 men and 16
women ranging in age from 18 to 63- if
they spotted a marine near the
building.
"It was a very easy operation," said
a government spokesman. w,"The
marines clearly just walked through
the front door."
No one was killed in the 20-minute at-
tack mounted by 60 anti-terrorist
marine commandos under fierce cover
fire from sharpshooters on nearby roof-
tops
oBUT OFFICIALS said a 40-year-old
man died Monday when the three
terrorists occupied the Drente provin-
cial government complex in a wooded
suburban area of this northern Dutch
city.
Six hostages were reported hurt
yesterday. Officials said one was shot
in the stomach by terrorists and the
others were hit by flying glass as the
marines stormed in. The terrorists
were arrested unhurt and taken to a
downtown police station, a government
spokesman said.
"THEY'RE FREE, they're free," a
marine officer yelled into his radio as
the marines climbed the interior stairs
and secured the building, four stories of
concrete and glass colored blue and
gray.

none hurt
"I think we were all very lucky,
especially the hostages," said a
policeman as the released captives
were escorted to an emergency aid cen-
ter set up at a' skating rink nearby,
prior to precautionary sessions with
psychiatrists and reunion with their
families.
Some hostages waved both arms
triumphantly in the air as they left the
building, while others were supported
by fellow hostages. Some smiled and
some sobbed. Crowds of relatives,
friends and neighbors watched from
behind the police barricades where
they had come to stand in the rain,
transistor radios in hand, to await
news.
Local government architect Carl
Zuhorn spoke to reporters shortly after
he was released. He said the captives,
who were being held on an upper floor,
heard shots "and then the marines
were in the room. There was firing in
the room. The marines were shooting at
the terrorists. The Moluccans fired
back I thought we were all going to be
killed, but it was all over very quickly."
Immediately after the marine attack,
there had been no official indication the
terrorists returned fire.

Beukema said the agency's money

gets money from private donations.
The remainder is raised through

'SHOE' CLOSED
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A shoe-
shaped shoe store here which looks like
the nursery rhyme house of "The Old
Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" is closing
because of declining business.
Built as a pilot project in 1965, the
company hoped to franchise the con-
cept and put similar buildings in shop-
ping centers. But trends toward
leasing, rather than owning stores, and
operating in strip or mail centers
rather than in free-standing buildings,
defeated the idea, said Mrs. Phyllis
Scruggs, advertising director of
Raiford's Inc. She's the daughter of the
publicly held company's late founder,
Phillip Raiford.
"We have investigated the prospect
of moving the building to another
location, but the cost would be
prohibitive. It's made of heavy con-
crete and steel," she said.
The small mouth organ commonly
referred to as a harmonica is actually
an aeolina, invented in 1829 by Sir
Charles Wheatstone. Harmonica is a
generic name given to instruments that
produce sound through friction on glass
bells.

Regents may give University
land for alumni-funded center

By BRIAN BLANCHARD
If the Regents agree to contribute the
lnd, the Alumni Association will put up
the money to build a new center just be-
hind the Michigan League on Washing-
ton St. The Regents' decision is expect-
ed to be made this week.
'The Association hopes 'to-build a two
story, 15,600 square foot building to ex-
pand its present office space in the
Michigan Union. That space would be
abandoned when the building is com-
pleted.

roan Joseph Payne called Stark a gifted
woman. "The reports from her
colleagues were exceptionally suppor-
tive," he said.
STARK SAID she is delighted by the
nomination. "I look forward to it as a
great opportunity and I hope to follow
the great work of Dean Cohen. I'm in-
terested in maintaining the excellent
academic quality that has been
established," she said.
Stark graduated magna cum laude
from Syracuse University in 1957. She
holds a master's degree from Columbia
University Teacher's College and a
Doctorate of Education from State
University of New York at Albany.
She joined the Syracuse faculty in
1974, after serving since 1970 as
assistant and then associate dean of
Goucher College in Baltimore,
Maryland. She also has been a lecturer
at Ulster County (New York) Com-
munity College and editorial consultant
and editor for two . science and
mathematics textbook publishers.
Stark has authored several articles,
manuals and reviews dealing with con-
sumerism in higher education.

THE PROSPECT of a new building
cater-corner to Rackham is likely. No
opposition has been heard, and the only
financial support the organization
requests is the value of the land for the
proposed building.
"It would be a rather modest building
as buildings go," said Robert Foreman,
head of the Alumni Association. He said
the group would need nearly $1.5
million to build it. He also said they
have $400,000, but he expects it to be
some time before the group can gather
all the necessary money.
Foreman said the group is trying to
cull several large donations. "We're
caught in the awkward position of
waiting for the demise of someone we
don't want to see die," he said. He was

apparently referring to a $650,000
bequest by a 95-year-old woman which
would be payable upon her death.
MONA EAST, chairperson of the
League's Board of Governors, said the
site "was almost bound to be used for
something or other sometime." She
also said the board considers the
building as an asset to the League.
Since the Alumni Center wouldn't in-
clude hotel rooms or food services, East
said the League could increase its
business.
Financial Vice-President James
Brinkerhoff said although the Alumni
Association doesn't have much money
now, the University is confident they
would be able to raise the money for the
project.
