Ousted FBI agent calls

Jackson Browne, live!
Most students returned home after the Jackson Browne concert
Wednesday to blare their stereos and reflect on the lyrics of the songs.
But Alice Lloyd residents had a big surprise - a visit from the star
himself. A Lloyd resident had written Browne a letter and asked him
to come by and party after the concert. Browne said that as a rle he
and the band decline those offers, but "we had Thursday off and well,
we had never been to a dorm, so we figured why not?" Browne and his
band hung around Lloyd for about two hours just rapping and partying
with admiring fans.
Did they or didn't they?
On Thursday afternoon Mike Van Lent, a first year Engineering
student, said the Bursley Board of Governors wrote out a check to him
for $400 dollars to buy "lots of beer and food" for a party held out at
Bursley on March 31. The fourth floor Van Hoosen resident denied that
any of the money was used to buy drugs, despite the fact that the
Board of Governors have lost their leases for admitting that they ap-
proved half of the $400 for some joints that appeared late on the eve of
the Hash Bash on 4th Van Hoosen.
Happenings.. .
begin bright and early today (do you have any idea how many
times we've said "begin bright and early today"? By now it is really
trite, especially when we use it to describe the first event of the day
whether it begins at 7:00 or at 1;00. But today it is really applicable)
at 5:00 a.m. when the Washtenaw County Audubon Society will leave
from the Pittsfield School parking lot for Point Pelee National Park,
Canada where earlybird (sorry) Dave Barker will sho you some
Kentucky Warblers and other unusual migrants - bring a lunch ...
from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. the Dharma study group is sponsoring a
seminar on "Ego East and West (young man)" at the Friends Meeting
House ... the Midwest Composers Symposium will begin at 11 a.m.
with a concert by Northwestern University.. . from 2-5 p.m. there will
be a Children's Carnival at the Phi Delta Theta house. .. and at 7 and
9:30 you can see the film account of the infamous Sacco and Vanzetti
trial at the Holy Trinity Family Center on 1229 Labrosse in Detroit.
Harboring ducks
Squawky, Annabella and Taffy can keep their home in the Bronx.
The three are ducks, and on Monday Criminal Court Judge Stanley
Parness dismissed a summons issued by the American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals against the Robert Benedick family
who had been charged with "harboring ducks." The society charged
the Benedicks'were violating the city health laws against keeping "a
live rooster, duck, goose or turkey in a built-up portion of the city."
But at a hearing in Criminal Court, City Councilman Jerry Crispino,
who represented the Benedicks, argued the Benedicks, far from living
in a "built-up" neighborhood, have a one-family house with a large
back yard "four blocks from Westchester County." Parness dismissed
the charges and said the ducks could stay put. The ASPCA later ac-
cused the judge of being a quack. Only in New York.
Rock and rift
The city of Salem, Oregon will soon have its own $31,000 pet rock -
or at least that's what detractors are calling a 30-foot concrete
monolith rising on a city-owned island in the Williamette River. The
concrete rock is for the benefit of budding mountaineers who want to
practice close to home. Oregon has plenty of real rocks, but the moun-
tain climbers did not want to drive the 50miles or so up to the
cascades. The rock, financed under the federal Comprehensive Em-
ployment and Training Act, has caused a flap among city council
members who didn't hear about the construction until after it began. A
move to stop construction last week failed on a 4-to-4 vote.
Close encounters
After two reported sightings of unidentified hopping creatures,
Wisconsin Humane Society officials confess they're still on a "wild
kangaroo chase." There aren't any missing kangaroo reports on file,
nor any records of kangaroo ownership in the area, except for the ones
at the nearby Milwaukee County Zoo. But that doesn't help Jill
Haeselich, who would like more proof that what she saw in her back

yard Wednesday was really what she saw. "It was pretty quick. It was
hopping. We knew it had to be a kangaroo," Haeselich said.
Wakesha police said last week that a woman reported seeing a car
strike one of two kangaroos crossing an intersection about 10 miles
from the Haeselich home. The woman said the animal that was hit was
able to hop away. "We're on a wild kangaroo chase at the moment,"
said Albert Keller, manager of the Humane Society.
On the outside.. .
Today we can expect a high of about 480 with partly cloudy to
mostly cloudy skies and light winds. There will be a slight chance of a
few sprinkles. Tonight, look for a low of a cool 280 and Sunday, expect it
to be a little warmer, with a high of 530 and mostly cloudy skies.

Bell's action

NEW YORK (AP) - The ousted head
of the FBI's biggest field office said
yesterday that attempts by Attorney
General Griffin Bell to discipline him
have bypassed FBI Director William
Webster, setting a potentially
dangerous precedent.

of the bureau's New York regional of-

"It appears to me that the attorney
general is not allowing the director of
the FBI to run the FBI . . . Ad-
ministratively, I think that's wrong. I
think it's really wrong."
He added that "the director has told
me he would do everything he could in
his position" to support LaPrade and
"I feel that he's in the middle."
THERE WAS NO immediate respon-

House responded to LaPrade's claim in
his news conference Thursday that

those that led to the indictment of for-
