Presidents are always the last
to know
As John Kennedy said when a U.S. pilot intruded upon Soviet air
space during the Cuban missile crisis, "There's always some dumb
son of a bitch who doesn't get the word." In this case, it was one of
Kennedy's successors, the one who's in the White House now. Witness
President Carter's statement to reporters last Saturday that he would
hold a news conference this week at which he would respond to all
questions about his embattled budget chief, Bert Lance. What the
President apparently didn't know at the time was that his senior ad-
visers already had discussed the possibility of a news conference and
decided it would be best to postpone it until after Lance testified before
the Senate Government Affairs Committee later in the week. When
Carter finally got the word, he said that was fine with him.
Artificial Intelligence
When the deluge has come and gone, when historians of the 30th
century are trying to reconstruct the world as it, was a millenium
before, and when the chapter on education is written, it may include a
footnote on what the University of Michigan was like during the 1970s.
And if the historians are thorough, they will include the course
description of CCS 385, CCS 565, and Psych 747 - it's all one course -
,and they will roll their eyes in wonder. Without doubt, a more com-
plicated course description has never been written. Students who
came into the class last week, expecting either a CCS (computer and
communication science) course or a psychology course, got an as-
tounding combination of both. A memo instructed them to do some
portion of the following: '
"For the first four weeks, through Oct. 5, Mondays 2-3 are for CCS
.565 and Psych 747; Mondays 3-4 and Wednesdays 2-4 are for LISP,
which may be taken either as CCS 385, the LISP. minicourse, or as the
fourth credit of Psych 747 (or in cases of extreme need, as both). These
- LISP sessions may be audited by anyone who already knows LSIP but
;-wants to reviewsi
"Psychology students take 747. (a) If you already know LISP, sign
up for three credits, and unless you want a LISP review, attend only
y the M 2-3 session until Oct. 9. (b) If you don't know.LISP, sign up for
four credits, and attend M, W 2-4 throughout. (If your computing is
weak or nonexistent, expect to be putting in extra time ... If you want
extra credit for the extra work, add to four credits of 747 one credit of
CCS 385, or one credit of individual work. Students in 747 will have the
option of additional sessions with Hardzinski, Reitman, or both, to ex-
plore more deeply the psychological implications of LISP represen-
tations and programmed models ... Students who want the CCS course
should take 565, for three credits. Note that CCS 565 assumes a
working knowledge of LISP. If you know LISP, and don't need review,
you need attend only M 2-3 until Oct. 9. If you don't know LISP, take
CCS 385, the LISP minicourse, in addition to CCS 565, and attend M, W
2-4 throughout the trimester. LISP, friends; is a computer language.
r If you care to attend, don't bother to consult the Time Schedule, as the
location has been changed no fewer than four times. In addition td the
excerpted concerns of the course, students will learn an ancient orien-
tal- board game which is played on several different levels of con-
centration and stresses stratety and aesthetics. The course name?
What could be more fitting than "Artificial Intelligence"?

Fugitive Rudd gives up

THE COUNT OF persons missing
in the flood dwindled yesterday as
some previously thought missing
were accounted for. At least four
persons were believed to be missing
in flood-related incidents.
Nineteen bodies were found in the
Kansas City area itself, another in
the flooded area of Leavenworth,
Kan., 35 miles to the west. Teasdale
said he would ask President Carter
for federal disaster assistance, mak-
ing the area eligible for low-cost
loans and outright grants.
"I believe the President will, in my
judgment, react quickly to our
request," the governor said. "Our
main qualification is because of the

homeless because of the rampaging

The flash flood was the result of 12
inches of rain in a 24-hour period
Monday. The water surged into
Brush Creek, overflowed its banks

along the fancy Country Club Plazal
shopping center, and moved into the
Blue - wreaking havoc all the way.
The body found yesterday was near
Brush Creek, about two miles dowr
stream from the Plaza, 35 blocks
south of the downtown area. Teas-

NEW YORK (AP) - Mark Rudd,t
silent in custody as he was elusive
during a seven-year flight from the
law, ended his fugitive years yester-
day without saying a word in public
about the radical Weather Under-
Rudd, 30, would not say where he
has been or what he has been doing or
why he was giving himself up. He'
smiled as he pushed his way pastI
reporters to surrender at the offices
of the Manhattan district attorney.
"HE IS not making any statements
to the courts, to any government
agents, to the press or to anyone
else," said his attorney, Gerald
Rudd - a self-proclaimed revolu-
tionary who wa quoted in 1969 as
saying, "Don't be timid about telling
people we're Communists. Don't
deny it. Be proud of it." - had been a
fugitive since 1970, when he jumped
bail and became the object of an
intense FBI search.
He arrived for his surrender
wearing a suede sports coat and an
open-collared shirt. He was clean-
- shaven.
RUDD'S#DRE&SS and appearance
provided a close resemblance to his
picture on FBI posters, which were
Kissinger, Rusk
support Panama
Canal treaty
Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger
and Dean Rusk said yesterday that
the new Panama Canal treaty would
give the United States more author-
ity to keep the waterway open than
the 74-year-old agreement under
which the canal was built.
signed by President Carter last
week, Kissinger and Rusk sought to
answer critics who say the Panaman-
ians might seize early control, close
the canal or exclude the United
States or other nations from using it.
The treaty, which faces a ratifica-
tion vote in the Senate early next
year, provides for the United States
to gradually relinquish control until
the year 2000, when the waterway
would be turned over to Panama.

the country as his planned surrender
was announced Tuesday.
However; Rudd wore glasses as he
entered the district attorney's office
and had none on in the poster
Officials said Rudd Would be
charged with bail jumping and a
variety of misdemeanors in connec-
tion with the student takeover of
buildings at Columbia University in
TODAY, Rudd is expected to
present himself to Cook County
authorities in Chicago where he faces
charges stemming from a 1969 dem-
onstration known as the "Days of
Since he disappeared in 1970, Rudd
has reportedly not returned to his
family's home in Maplewood, N.J.,
and has not seen his parents.
They were not at the courthouse for
Rudd's surrender, a court official
Rudd appeared calm as he entered
the courthouse with Lefcourt, telling
one reporter who fired a volley of
questions, "Nice weather."
A REPORTER asked, "Mark, ho
about some of that old thunder'you
had at Columbia?"
Rudd smiled but said nothing.
The Weather Underground was
created in 1969 from remnants of Stu-
dents for a Democratic Society
(SDS) and Rudd was one of the
original leaders. It was not known if
he remained a leader of the group in
recent years.
