Those who don't know, teach
Just because you might know how to build cars doesn't mean you
know how to drive them-at least that is currently the case at General
Motors. In fact, it's gotten to the point that the nation's biggest
automaker is paying for driving lessons for some of it's top executives.
It's all part of a package deal to move 800 emvlovees from the New
York office to Detroit. Declining to comment on the quality of driving
in New York, a GM spokesperson said, "We found that some of the old-
timers and spouses had lived in New York so long that they never
learned how to drive." And there are others who once learned to drive
but have long since forgotten. Rumor has it that when GM has
reprogrammed all the execs, they're going to use the same program to
work on New York's cabbies.
No voterfraud there
Some folks don't like politics much. They don't want to vote, they
don't want to campaign, and they don't want to run for election in
Burgoon, Ohio. In fact, there are no candidates for village council, and
that's nothing new. "It's nothing new," said Glenn Weyant, mayorof
the 240 member coimunity. "They just don't want to bother filing
petitions, so we'll wait until after election Nov. 8 and appoint the same
ones back on the council," he expiained. And that's how the five
vacancies get filled every year. Weyant says the councilmembers
earn $4 each meeting, and meet "once every few months-there just
isn't much to do." So much for active participation in democracy.

POW code
WASHINGTOI? (AP)-President
Carter opened the way yesterday for
future U.S. war prisoners to give their
captors more than name, rank, service
number and birth date if they are tor-
The White House said Carter had or-
dered the first change in the military
code of conduct in more than 20 years
"to reduce guilt feelings in prisoners
who are coerced into giving more than
name, rank, service number and date
of birth."
CARTER ACTED on the recommend
dation of a special civilian military
committee which reviewed the military
code in the light of the experience of
Americans held prisoner.
Many POWs acknowledged, after
they were freed by the Communist
Vietnamese in 1973, that they had
provided more than toe traditional
basic information after they were tor-
tured and otherwise coerced.
Some POWs, however, refused to go
beyond the narrow limits of the code
and there was considerable bad
feeling directed at those who had
provided the North Vietnamese with
extra information.
THE CHANGES in the code came
down to only two words.
The 1955 code, in effect until now, said
that a U.S. war prisoner is "bound to
give only name,'rank, service number
and date of birth."
The changes approved by Carter
replace the word "bound" with
"required," something the Pentagon
committee recommended because it
believed the word bound is out of date
and not easily understood by many ser-
THE KEY change came in the
deletion of the word "only" from the
sentence. Under Carter's order, the
code now reads, "I am required to give
name, rank, service number and date
of birth," thus permitting a POW to
tell his captors more if he can-
not stand the torture or other coer-
However, the new executive order
does not change a requirement in the
military code that a captured American
serviceman "will evade answering fur-
ther questions to the utmost" of his
CARTER also signed an order inten-
ded to make clear that the senior-
ranking officer, regardless of branch of
service, will be in command of all
Americans of lower rank in the same
