It appears another University professor will soon join the ranks of
the high and, uh, somewhat mighty. No less a luminary than President
Jimmy Carter has nominated University law professor Harry Ed-
wards to serve on the board of directors of Amtrak, the national
passenger railroad company. Edwards, who specializes in labor law
and collective bargaining, will fill one of six vacant spots on the board.
Congratulations, Harry.

Plan to be outside today because it looks like it could be one of the
last really authentic autumn days. We'll have a gloriously sunny one
with the mercury reaching a pleasant high of 630, just right for a hike
or a bike. And since the football game is away this weekend, Saturday
also will be fairly sunny and warm. Get out and enjoy it because our.
weather people are saying it might get pretty cool next week.

Hijacking drama ends in Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) - A hijacker shot
himself to death last night after
releasing the hostages he had held
aboard a Frontier Airlines jet in a
day-long ordeal that had started in
Frontier President Al Feldman
said, "The hijacking of flight 101 is
now over. All persons were safely
evacuated including the co-pilot and
first officer. The hijacker has com-
mitted suicide. The impression we
have is that he just gave up.'
The FBI said the hijacker began
releasing his hostages after a lawyer
and an FBI negotiator boarded the
aircraft to talk to him.
ABOUT A HALF hour after the
hostages were released, five ambu-
lances sped up to the aircraft and a
dozen or so persons ran to the steps
leading to the door of the plane..
Hannan took over the plane at the
Grand Island airport at about 7:30
a.m. EDT and ordered it to Kansas
City for refueling. There, he released
18 of his 33 hostages - eight women,
eight children and two men - and
then directed the plane to Atlanta.

An FBI spokesman said the two
freed flight attendants appeared to
be in good shape. Asked if any special
anti-terrorist teanms were on hand,
the spokesman replied only that the
FBI had enough agents and officers
on hand. He declined to discuss
HANNAN'S parents had flown to
Atlanta from their Nebraska home
and his father urged him to surren-
der. His lawyer also came to Atlanta
and a spokesman for Frontier said
the attorney had convinced Hannan
to release the stewardesses "as a
show of good faith."
Earlier, Hannan, who carried a
sawed-off shotgun, had given author-
ities until 5 p.m. to meet his
demands, warning, "If you don't
meet my deadline, a lot of people are
going to suffer." Negotiations contin-
ued after the deadline passed, how-
Hannan was demanding the release
of his homosexual lover who was in
jail here on .bank robbery charges.
SHORTLY before 6 p.m., the door

to the plane opened. Hannan told
officials over a radio hookup, "I need
an honorable way out."
Talking over the radio, Hannan's.
father said: "Mike, how are you
doing?" He got no reply and went on,
"I see the stewardess has a child
she's worried about. Can you let her
off? Your mother is here. She's down-
stairs. She can't talk to you now.
We're both pretty worried. Your
mother and I both think you ought to
hand in that gun and call it quits.

Can't you do that, boy?"
An FBI official told Hannan:
"They all think the best thing you can
do is come out. You'll be able to see
your people. You'll be able to see
He referred to George David,
Stewart, 29, of Mobile, Ala., whose.
release Hannan had demanded. The
two were arrested in Alabama last
month inconnection with a $7,000
bank robbery, butHannan was re-
leased on bond earlier this month..

City pleased with state
funds for fire service

(Continued from Page 1)
While Ann Arbor officials are
happy with the prospects of more
state aid, they say the city will still be
short-changed for services it gives
the University.
"We have to consider the cost of
generalgovernment - district court,
city council, the city attorney, etc.,"
said Murray. "All provide the same
service to the University" as to other
citizens, he added. "I'm not fully

satisfied that's all we should be
getting," agreed Wheeler. He said he
hopes the state will expand the types
of services to the University for
which it will pick up the tab in the
Wheeler said police service on
campus, although harder to put a
price on, is clearly more expensive
than fire protection.
The University contracts with the
city for police patrols on campus.

The Personal Electronic Transac-
tor, or PET, will be sold in Ann Arbor
for $595 by Compumart, Inc.
AT THIS PRICE, according to
Compumart sales manager John
Johnson, "A home computer is too in-
expensive to ignore."
The PET (and a competitor expect-
ed to be coming soon from Radio
Shack) can be used to keep complete
financial records, balance a check-
book painlessly, and fill out a tax
Or, a PET programmed to keep an
inventory of what's in the refriger-
ator could help plan menus, calculat-
ing calories and nutritional value. It
could produce a shopping list when-
ever needed. Beyond these, the
practical uses in the home are
limited only by the imagination of the
PET's owner.
Of course, there are some not-so-
practical uses. A PET can be used to
play TV games as far beyond the
most advanced "Pong" as today's.
calculators are beyond the abacus.
PET's can also draw pictures, play
the popular computer game "Star
Trek", and solve puzzles.
