Roll on, Woody
You've plastered your car with all the appropriate bumper stickers.
You've hung your dart board, complete with his scowling mug. Yes,
you've even whipped up an obscene poster concerning certain parts of
his anatomy that you can flash at the TV camers at The Game. So, as a
card-carrying Woody Hayes hater, you're all set, right? Far from it,
pal. The folks down at Campus Corners have come up with the
ultimate in Woody Hayes novelty items. For the bargain price of $1.39,
you can pick up an individually wrapped roll of toilet paper that has a
picture of you-know-who on every single sheet. And should you be
moved to buy two rolls, you get a free 111/2 by 14 poster of your favorite
villain. As they say, be the first one on your block.
Here come de alum
While you were studying for that midterm last night, ex-prez Jerry
Ford trucked into town, his briefcase fairly bulging with scholorly lec-
ture notes. Our most famous alum will spend the next couple of days
regaling 121,political science classes with tales of the political world
outside of the textbook. As with Ford's last visit, only those lucky
people with little white tickets will be able to drink in Jerry's words of
wisdom. This is Ford's seventh stop on his current lecture tour of
colleges. He'll wind up at Southern Cal in December. Give him our
regards, Jer.

Soviet answer to Concorde debuts

MOSCOW (AP)-The Soviet Union
entered the era of supersonic travel
yesterday with the first passenger
flight of the Tu-144, the much-delayed
Soviet answer to the British-French
The droop-nosed 140-seat liner, which
strongly resembles the Concorde in
outer appearance, took two hours and
two minutes to fly a special delegation
of reporters and Soviet VIPs from
Moscow to Alma Ata in Soviet central
Asia, 1,992 miles away. The plane then
returned with its passengers to
The Concorde, once expected to trail
the Soviet plane into service, made its
first passenger flight 21 months ago.
"IT WAS A GOOD flight without
anything unusual," Capt. Boris Kuznet-
sov reported when the round trip was
over. The trip to Alma Ata will become
a weekly passenger run, chopping two
hours 20 minutes off the flight time by
conventional airliner.
Reporters aboard the plane said its
layout and facilities were similar to

those aboard other airliners, but that
noise in the cabin was considerable.
"I was sitting by the window and
couldn't talk to the person sitting two
seats away on the aisle," one passenger
said. "I had to communicate with him
by notes." Another passenger reported
small problems with toilet and water
equipment but said they appeared
routine for a new airliner.
Moscow's Domtdedovo airport was
smooth after the initial climb, which
some passengers called sharp and
abrupt. The plane's transition to its top
supersonic speed of 1,426 miles per hour
could hot be noticed inside the cabin..
The plane lacks the Concorde's in-
dicator that tells passengers whet)
supersonic speed has been reached.
The aircraft leveled off at an altitude
of 10 miles.
"IF I HADN'T KNOWN it was a
supersonic flight I wouldn't have
noticed anything different from the or-

dinary," one passenger said.
Among those aboard was Alexei
Tupolev, 52, who designed the plane and
guided its development from the first
test flight in 1968.
He told reporters that the plane is still
being developed and that internal and
external noise will receive special at-
tention. He said that "now that regular
passenger service has started, we will
get new valuable experience."'
TUPOLEV BLAMED some of the
noise on the Tu-144's powerful engines
and the ventilation system required to
cool the cabin. The fuselage is heated
by air friction in supersonic flight to 248
degrees, he said.1
The slim white aircraft emblazoned
with a red hammer-and-sickle flag was
once expected to go into passenger ser-
vice in 1972. But on June 3 of that year a
prototype exploded in the air at the
Paris air show, killing 13 people in-
cluding all six crew members.
Ap improved prototype was sent to
the 1975 Paris air show but reportedly
had to make an emergency landing in

Poland on its way home because of
technical troubles. The aircraft began
regular mail and cargo flights between
Moscow and Alma Ata Dec. 26, 1975,
while technicians reportedly continued
to work on Efuel consumption and
vibration problems.
TUPOLEV TOLD reporters that he
Soviet Union's current fleet of Tu-144s
have now flown a total of 2.5 million
miles. But asked how many Tu-144a the
Soviet Union has, he answered only that
''we have enough of them."
Tupolev and Soviet Vice Aviation
Minister Konstantine Gulakov also
declined to say what new routes are
planned fqr the plane. It is expected
eventually to compete with Concorde on
overseas runs.

The end?


Several years of investigations, allegations and courtroom
dramatics may end today when convicted VA nurses Filipina Narciso
and Leonora Perez come up before Federal District Judge Philip
Pratt for his final judgement on their case. Pratt must decide whether
the pair will get a new trial or whether the original convictions-three
counts of poisoning and one count of conspiracy-will stand. While
Pratt ponders supporters of the nurses plan to rally in front of
Detroit's Federal Building where the judgement will take place. For
those of you who are interested, the whole thing starts at 2.

A mod and modish London PHOTOGRAPHER (DAVID HEMMINGS) realizes
after the fact that he may have photographed a murder, and his search
for the killers takes him through a hell of betrayal, decadence, and hoalluci-

have set up the hit. Winner of many top awards, this is one of the most
influential of recent films. With SARAH MILES. Music by Herbie Hancock,
plus a sequence with the Yardbirds with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
