And Toto, too
Perhaps because it may take the Wizard himself to snap the Wol-
verines out of their slump, the big blue band will take to the field Sat-
urday for a halftime version of "Wizard of Oz." The cyclone which
carried Dorothy from Kansas to the land of make-believe, the scarecrow
and the Tin Man will all be put to music, as well as a little Broadway
shuckin' 'n jivin' in the form of "East on Down the Road." But the last
half of the show, says band director George Cavender, is strictly confi-
fential. Big George's only clue is: look up. The message, he says, will be
"Dorothy surrender." "You never know," said a cagey Cavender yester-
day afternoon.' "But if you saw the movie you know something happened
in the sky." Could he mean ... could it possibly be ... would Bo allow it ... a
passing game? George won't spill.
Sick time
Rhode Island's Representative-elect William Bailey, of recent klep-
tomania fame, underwent surgery to remove a tumor of the colon yes-
terday morning at University Hospital. Bailey is presently serving a two-
year prison term at Southern Michigan Prison in Jackson. He was con-
yicted on a shoplifting charge in May of this year for stealing 31 albums
from an Algonac, Michigan store in 1973. The surgery lasted nearly five
hours and there was no report on Bailey's condition. In Lansing, the
chairman of the Michigan Parole Board said the board will meet soon to
reconsider an earlier decision denying Bailey medical parole. The 40-
year-old Democrat is hoping to return to Rhode Island soon to be sworn in
as a state representative.'After winning last year's election, Rhode
Island's attorney general ruled that Bailey could not be sworn in because
of a state constitutional provision barring convicted felons from holding
state office. Bailey has been convicted on felony charges in three other

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP)
- Dutch magnate Maurits Caransa,
freed early yesterday by kidnappers
after five days of captivity, said he
negotiated his own $4.16, million
ransom with four abductors he de-
scribed as "just criminals" and not
political terrorists.
"As they said themselves, they
were only out for money," the 61-
year-old millionaire told a news con-
CARANSA SAID the four men, who
overpowered him last Friday outside
an Amsterdam hotel, drove him to a
dark cell-like enclosure within a
larger room and handcuffed him to'a
bed. They spoke to him in English
and French via intercom and wore
ski masks in face-to-face dealings.
The self-made magnate said he
gained his freedom at one-fourth the
40-million guilder ($16.64 million
ransom his captors first demanded.
"We bargained and came to the
sum of 10 million guilders," he said.
He said he wrote the board of
directors of his real estate company
Sunday and instructed them to draw

the money from a bank and arrange POLICE C
for its delivery to the kidnappers. Toorenaar sa

802 MONROE (Corner of Oakland)




Hearst's 1976 conviction for armed
bank robbery was upheld yesterday by
a federal appeals court.
The 40-page decision said Hearst's
attorneys had argued that the late
U.S. District Judge Oliver Carter,
who presided at the trial, errer in ad-
mitting evidence which prejudiced the
jury by making the defendant invoke
the Fifth Amendment guarantee again-
st self-incrimination.
BUT THE- appeals court said Hear-
st's attorneys had raised the defense of
duress, contending that the Symbionese
Liberation Army members who ha kid-
napped her compelled her to take part
in the holdup with them.
MISS Hearst, 23, was sentenced to
seven years in prison for her role in the
bank robbery. On the charges stem-
ming from her activities in Los
Angeles, she received a suspended sen-
U. S. Attorney James Browning, who
prosecuted the bank robbery case, said
Hearst would remain free on bond for
the time being.
"They have 14 days to file for a
rehearing by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals and then another 30 days to
file a petition with the u.s. supreme
Court," Browning said.
