Decisions, decisions. One item the University Regents must con-
sider during this week's deliberations is whether or not to accept
Donald and Priscilla Halla's gift to the University-a bit of the
Bahamas. The eight decision-makers will undoubtedly accept the
small, sun-drenched plot on the Island of Grand Bahama from the two
grateful Grand Rapids alumni. With a little imagination we might find
ourselves the only university in the country with a retreat for exam-
weary students. How about the Art of Sunbathing 432? Surf's up!

NEW YURK-The Concorde SST
swooped through an overcast sky
yesterday and landed at Kennedy In-
ternational Airport, marking the end of
a 1/2-year strugle to keep the faster-
than-sound passenger jet out of New
York.
The sun broke through and glistened
on the white body of the .needle-beaked
plane as it touched down with one boun-
ce at 11:09 a.m., minutes after it tllk off
from Toulouse in southwest France,
where it was built.
SOME OBSERVERS at the airport
and sightseers in the Rockaway section
of Queens under the Concorde's glide
path thought the landing was quiet.
But Jerry Jones of Rosedale, who
watched from the Far Rodkaway
board-walk fronting the Atlantic, com-
mented: "Right now it may be a very
beautiful sight, but there's a very heavy
wind thrust which is keeping the noise
away from us."

SINCE EARLY last year, the Concorde
has flown regularly scheduled flights
between the two European capitals and
Washington. But flights to New York,
the route on which Britain and France
hoped to make the plane a seller, were
held up because of local opposition to
the aircraft's noise, It is considerably
worse on takeoff than the noise of sub-
sonic planes.

technicians and other personnel, but no
passengers.
Its maiden entry to New York was a
familiarization flight. The plane
carried technicians and other person-
nel, but no passengers.
Regular commercial service by the
1,350-mile-an-hour plane is scheduled to

events, but anti-SST forces had no
protests planned at the airport yester-
day.
Shortly before the takeoff, a union of
French aerospace workers appealed to
New Yorkers to accept the inevitable

U.S. economic growth declines

WASHINGTON (AP)-The nation's
economic growth as measured by the
Gross National Product slowed to a rate
of 3.8 per cent in the third quarter as
consumers bought fewer products, the
Commerce Department said yesterday.
The new GPN figure was a decline
from the 7.5 per cent annual growth
rate in the first quarter and the\6.2 per

for the year.
Treasury Secretary Michael Blumen-
thal argued that the latest figures
should be assessed in a larger context,
noting that the nation's output had in-
creasedby more than 15 per cent since
the 1975 recession.
SPEAKING at the American Bankers
Association convention in Houston,
Tex., Blumenthal said business has
been showing a lack of confidence
despite a favorable economic outlook.

The GNP figures show "A marked
slowing in the rate of economic growth
from the first half of the yar," he said.
But he said the first six months were
unusually strong.
The government report focused on
lower consumer spending and no in-
crases in inventory investment and
housing construction as the ex-
planations for the third-quarter GNP
decline.
After adjustment for inflation, con-
sumer purchases of durable goods,

PANIC IN THE STREETS
(Ella Kozan, 1950) 7 ONLY-AUD. A
In New Orleans, the autopsy of an immigrant Armenian determines not only
that he has been murdered, but also that he is a carrier of bubonic plague.
The Chief Health Inspector (RICHARD WIDMARK) is thus propelled into a
desperate race against time to locate all the people who might have earlier
come into contact with the infected victim (including his killers) before the
news of an impending wide-spread plague causes panic. Gripping entertain-
ment directed with a keen sense of appreciation for violence and suspense.
With JACK PALANCE in a performance of overpowering menance, Zero Mostel.
