Justice Department lawyers had rec-
ommended that no jail term be
assessed Helms and the former CIA di-
rector mentioned that "understanding"
to Judge Parker.
"This court doss not consider itself
bound by that understanding," the
judge said, explaining he could impose
a jail sentence.
Helms could be sentenced to one year
in jail and fined $1,000. The minimum
sentence is one month in jail and a $100
fine, but even that could be suspended.
THE GOVERNMENT charged that
Helms failed to answer "fully, com-

his knowledge about United States
government policy with respect to the

questions fully and completely as
'equired by law," said a statement of
facts filed by the government.

proven by the 1977 Pleasant Valley
Classic. Ticket, sales were well in

A few days before the tourna-

non-stop inquiring about tickets and

conflict over student office space is

At last night's meeting, the board

student groups with offices.
The guidelines, which go to MSA

group to keep office hours at least 10
hours a week.

and often will play only one city in a state.
We have been able to'get the only state
appearance of Steve Miller, earlier this
month, and Linda Ronstodt on Nov. 11. But
in order to get these maior acts, we had to
be gable to compete with the other bids
being submitted . . . that meant offering
the same gross potential as other halls,
since these superstars all get large per-
centages of the ticket sales. $8.50 top-
price ticket has been the national norm on
the whole tourfor these acts. With Crisler
Arena having so many of its seats rear-
stage, it's mighty tough to compete with
other buildings in the state that have more
seats in front of the stage.
The productions on tour had really in-
creased in complexity, special effects, and
numbers of people on tour, all of which have
to be covered out of the ticket prices. So,
we hope you enjoy the advantage of having

Rock Music Award for top Female Artist of
the Year and on the cover of last week's
PEOPLE magazine; has just gone on'sale for
her upcoming Nov. 11 concert here. Her
smash new album, "Simple Dreams,"
blew out sales records by unloading 1 .6
million copies in its first 16 days in the
stores. It shot to the number two album in
the country the first week it was re-

finally nudge Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours"
