Tired of your pet rock?
bid your Pet Rock finally die? Looking for something appropriate to
do for it? North Las Vegas Mayor Ray Daines says send it to Dave
Morby, the director of Library, Parks and Recreation. The mayor,
saying it was all in fun, issued a proclamation Tuesday urging all
residents to send Morby their Pet Rocks for use in a traffic median
near City Hall. The proclamation noted that while the country once
was "seized by a craze" for Pet Rocks, "it appears that people are no
longer willing or able to provide proper care for, or love and protect
their Pet Rocks. Whereas, Mr. Morby, out of the goodness of his
heart, has taken on the responsibility of providing for these unfor-
tunate, helpless creatures; Now, therefore, I, Ray Daines, mayor of
the city of North Las Vegas, do hereby proclaim the medium
island ... Morby's Pet Rock Ranch."
This may shock faithful readers of the Congressional Record: your
favorite publication doesn't always report everything said during floor
debates. Rarely has there been a more graphic example of the
judicios editing of congressional rhetoric than the recent outburst by
Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., during the Panama Canal
debate Moynihan rose to denounce an amendment offered by Sen.
Malcolm Wallop, R-Wyo., and some of the New Yorker's unkindest
cuts never made theprinted record. Two days later, the Congressional
Recorol dutifully recorded Moynihan's apology, even though
the worst of what ie had said never made the record
in the first place. Not that Moynihan's reprtted words'
were mild. The Record reported him as denouncing the Wallop
amendment as "devoid of intellectual content or even rhetorical
merit." Deleted was his description of the amendment as "inane."
Missing entirely from the printed record were these statements:
m "Now, we are all at last supposed to have learned to read before we
have come to this chamber."
. "If a five-year-old tried to do things like this in fantasies of potency
which we are all familiar with, those of us who have raised children.
But the United States Senate is not a study for children."
" "Ate we to reduce this United States Senate to a playground, a
playpen for juvenilia, to the fantasies of pre-pubescent youth? Are we
going to ask the world to look down upon us ps persons who have no
standard of the integrity of an argument? ...
On the outside.. ..
. ..expect a rash of spring fever today as temperatures are expec-
ted to reach the 50 degree mark. This morning should bring partly
cloudy skies and light southweatly winds. Increasingly cloudy in the
afternoon with temperatures between 49 and 52 degrees. Tonight the
passing of this week's cold front will bring a slight chance of showers.
The low will be between 36 and 39 degrees. Tomorrow will bring
clearing skies with the high in the mid-40s.
TEL AVIV Israel (AP)-Sami
Esmail, 23, an American-born
Palestinian, admitted in court yester-
day that he visited Libya at that coun-
try's expense in 1976, but denied
charges that he underwent guerrilla
"I was not there, for military
training," testified Esmail, an
engineering student at Michigan State
He said he went to Libya at the in-
vitation of the ruling Libyan Arab
Socialist Party as part of the state's
program "to invite and attract intellec-
tuals to Libya."
He is accused of training with the
Popular Front for the Liberation of
Palestine in the summer of 1976.
Esmail could get 25 years in prison
under an Israeli law that permits
prosecution of persons who commit of-
fenses against Israel even while outside
He was arrested when he arrived last
December at Tel Aviv's B~en Gurion
Airport for atrip to the occupied West
Bank to visit his dying father.
Another American in jail on terrorist-
related charges in Israel is Terry
Fleener, 23, San Antonio, Texas, con-
victed of gathering information for
terrorists. She is appealing her five-
Esmail's supporters in the United
States include Sen. James Abourezk
(D-S.D.), who claims Esmail was
arrested on the basis of information
given Israel by the FBI.
Esmail testified yesterday that his in-
terrogators showed him documents
they said were from the FBI.
Prosecutor Sara Sirotta countered
that Israel wouldn't reveal that infor-
mation after he heard of Sen.
Asked why he signed an alleged con-
fession a day after a visit from the
American counsul, he said the consul
told him he could do nothing about the
arrest, but could only see that Esmail
was treated well. Esmail said in-
terrogators told him he would never see
his dying father again unless he signed
NEWS FROM THE
MAJOR EVENTS OFFICE
One of the longest lines in the history of
our concert program woited patiently in
sub-freezing temperatures, last week, for
the first day of the Jackson Browne ticketj
sale. His April 12 appearance at Crisler
Arena had aroused such fervor that the
line began to form four days in advance.
Browne's single release, "Running On
Empty," from the album of the same
name, has moved into the top-20 while the
album, itself, solidly remains as the number
four pick in the nation. Many of those
buying tickets had seen Jackson at one of
his two sold-out Pine Knob shows last
summer, and were thrilled to get the
chance to see him again.
Opening the show will be' Columbia
recording artist Karla Bonoff. Well-known
for writing hits like "Someone To Lay
Down Besides Me"kand "Lose Again" for
Linda Ronstadt, Bonoff's first album has
been critically acclaimed from coast to
coast. She has a current single titled
"Isn't It Always Love." This will be her first
Ann Arbor appearance, but we can guaran-
tee you that it won't be her last. Seats for
the Jackson Browne/Korla Bonoff show are
still available at the Michigan Union Box
Office (11:30 to 5:30, M-Fri).
John Denver recently received the Golden
Ticket Award from Madison Square Garden
for ticket sales exceeding 100,000. Denver
will bring his high-flyng show to Crisler
on April 15.
Tidbits: The Doors are reuniting for an
Elektra /fAsylum album which will feature
poetry by the late, great Jim Morrison .. .
David Bowie will narrate the classic "Peter
And The Wolf" on RCA Records . .. rock
derelicts, The Pubes, promoted their Phoenix
concert with a contest titled, "Eat It
With The Tubes." Winners earned the
right to join the group for dinner . . .

Tuesday, March 28
(Brian De Palma, 1976) 7 & 9 p.m.-AUD. A
Quite simply the most brilliantly executed horror film ever made, with no
less than five stunning, terrifying climaxes that will leave you gasping. Sissy
Spacek stars as a repressed, lonely teenager with strange powers, brow-
beaten by her too-knowing schoolmates, offensively disinterested teachers,
and religious fanatic mother. For anyone who endured the hassles of high
school, De Palma's cheerfully excessive film is the ultimate revenge fantasy
and will keep your nervous system jangling on high. PIPER LAURIE, WILLIAM
KATT, JOHN TRAVOLTA.
