the metnod of conversion. Use as a
ibstitute for gasoline, as promoted by
ime energy groups, was briefly men-
oned.
Increased harvest would open up
any new jobs in cutting and conver-
ng wood to direct combustion for ener-
y, according to Milliken. "It is
timated that more than 250 jobs
ould be stimulated per each million
nis of wood fuel harvested within the
ate," he said.
THOUGH MOST participants in the
nference, which was not open to the
neral public, were highly supportive
wood energy, a few, like state Rep.
ussell Hellman, were more cautious
,heir comments. The Democrat from
e Upper Peninsula asserted that
Mfore wood can be considered as an
iergy alternative on a wide scale, bet-
r forest management is necessary.
Charging that Michigan's forests are
poor condition because of .poor
gging practices, Hellman declared,
Forests are not museums, they are,
ving gardens that are planted,
itivated and harvested."
hellman proposed the state educate
s citizens about wood, which is

DR., FRANK NOONAN, Prof. of In-
dustrial and Operations engineering,
presented the results of his economic
analysis of wood energy based on 1974
data. He compared the cost of produc-'
ing wood or low sulphur coal energy by
contrasting the costs on a small factory
(wood) vs. a large factory (coal) basis.
The direct results showed coal to be
cheaper without accounting for the
savings of mass production of wood en-
ergy. He also affirmed wood would be
visibly cheaper if concrete analysis
could be made of intangibles such as
the state's environmental and
economic impact on coal and wood
prices.
.The conference featured more than a
dozen speakers along with panel discus-
sions, some technical, some more
general. Among the more technical
presentations was a talk by Lee James,
chairman of the Department of Fores-
try.at Michigan State University.
James said research must be expand-
ed to determine the best soil for forest
growth and to further protect the tree
crop from insects, genetic diseases and
poor harvest practices.

SALISBURY (AP) - A moderate
black nationalist leader with whom
the white minority government is
trying to negotiate condemned
Rhodesia's raids into Mozambique,
which the government claimed
destroyed two guerrilla bases and
killed 1,200 black insurgents.
Bishop Abel Muzorewa claimed
yesterday most of the victims were
black Rhodesian refugees and called
for a week of mourning for those slain
in the raids.
THE MOZAMBIQUE government
disputed the casualty count in the raids,
saying Rhodesian forces killed about 80
persons in the five-day operation and
most of them were women and
children.
Moderate black nationalists said that
if the Rhodesian government's claims
are true, the guerrilla armies suffered
a crippling blow. Intelligence sources
said the raids by air and ground forces
set the black war effort back by mon-
ths.
The moderate leaders appeared to
doubt Mozambique's claim that only
about 80 persons died in the raids.
A bullfrog, even if not suitable for the
Caleveras County competition, can
jump nearly nine times its own length
and travel at about 10 mph.

MUZOREWA SAID the victims were
"for the most part men, women and
children who fled from the land of their
birth to seek asylum in Mozambique."
. .I vehemently condemn these
massacres," said Muzorewa, who is
president of the African National Coun-
cil, one of three nationalist groups
operating inside Rhodesia.
British Foreign Secretary David
Owen said in London: "This latest at-
tack with its challenge to the territorial
integrity of Mozambique underlines the
need for an internationally acceptable
settlement and emphasizes the grave
dangers of enlarging the conflict to em-
brace the whole of southern Africa."
A SPOKESMAN for the U.S. State
Department said in Washington the at-
tacks were a major escalation of
violence which has complicated efforts
for a peace settlement.
Meanwhile, the military command
reporteda yesterday four Rhodesian
blacks, including a member of the
security forces, had been killed by
guerrillas. It did not specify where or
when the four were killed. The com-
munique also said two Rhodesian
positions ' had been shelled from
Mozambique since the latest raids,
which began last Wednesday and ended
Sunday.
Smith said last week he was prepared
to concede the principle of full voting

rights for Rhodesia's 6.4 million black;
majority as a basis for negotiating a
settlement with black nationalist
leaders living in the country which
would guarantee safeguards for the
country's 268,000 whites.
THE RAIDED camps were bases for
guerrillas of Robert Mugabe's Zim-
babwe African National Union, the
military command said. The other
guerrilla organization is the Zimbabwe
African People's Union, based in Zam-
bia.
The Johannesburg Star on Tuesday

quoted a Radio Mozambique broadcast
in which Mugabe said if he took power
in' Rhodesia he would abolish
capitalism and set up a- socialist or
Communist government.
"People have been misled into
believing that majority rule means the
replacement of the terrorist regime of
Ian Smith by a black regime which
retains the same capitalist system as
the Smith regime," the statement said.
"We have always emphasized that
what matters in the concept of the
revolution is not the color of the people
in government but the system."

police, Goeghegan and Craig Valaan-
en allegedly held up the bank
Monday afternoon. One of the men
pointed a sawed-off shotgun at bank
patrons while the other forced bank
manager James Handy and a cus-
tomer to the back of the building,
demanding money from Handy, po-
lice said.
THE TWO SUSPECTS then fled in
a maroon luxury car with an estimat-
ed $16,000. FBI agents discovered the
deserted car in a parking lot at
Washtenaw Community College.
County police later that evening
arrested Goeghegan in the parking
lot when he apparently returned to
retrieve the automobile.
Police learned Goeoghegan and
Craig Valaanen had rented the car.
Yesterday afternoon, police arrest-
ed the two brothers at the Howard
Johnson's restaurant on Carpenter
Road. Craig Valaanen was arraigned
in Detroit yesterday afternoon;
Lance Valannen was held for ques-
tioning.
Police said Geoghegan and Craig
Valaanen had rented a room at the
Briarwood Hilton, and they suspect
the two men went on a "buying
spree" at Briarwood Mall soon after
the heist. According to one officer,
Valaanen was wearing "about $350
worth" of new clothes at the time of
his arrest.
Craig Valaanen was carrying a
small briefcase containing several
thousand dollars, which was money
stolen from the bank, police speculat-
ed.
