Australian journalist Wilfred Bur-
chett last night described a long chain
of "passing the torch" of national
liberation struggles starting in Fren-
ch Colonial Vietnam in the early 20th
century and leading to Namibia,
Rhodesia and South Africa today.
He said there has been "solidarity
between those fighting for the right of
SPEAKING LAST night to a sparce
audience in the Modern Language
Building, Burchett, a well-known
author and journalist, traced the roots
of the revolutionary efforts in Africa.
The chain of freedom-fighting began
when the French removed troops
from their colony, Algeria, to fight
against other rebels in another
When the Viet Minh rebels were vic-
torious, Burchett said, the Algerians
adopted their methods and took the
fight "from one continent to another,"
back to Africa. In Africa, each victory
brought about new struggles and led
to the continuation of the chain.
"As soon as one nation gained in-
dependence," he said, "it allowed
other liberation organizations to use
its territory to set up information
missions, to train troops, and even-
tually launch operations."
IN MANY cases, colonial powers
tried to "cut their losses. . . granting
independence by negotiating with
middle-of-the-road forces to protect
Burchett said he believes South
African black leader Steven Biko may
have been an acceptable replacement
for the Vorster regime there, but that
he was "arrested and done away
with" in order to prevent such a com-
During a question and answer
period after his talk, Burchett read a
statement from the State Department
that said the U.S. "has no infor-
mation" regarding charges that he
tortured American POWs in North
Vietnam or was linked to the KGB, the
Russian Secret Police.
In his long career, Burchett has won
many distinctions. He was the first
western to report on the effects of
radiation at Hiroshima when the U.S.
Army was still denying that radiation
had any ill effects.

Vice President for Academic Affairs
Harold Shapiro, who had been informed
of the conflicts between the faculty
members, said, "Our first order of busi-
ness right now is to establish the
teaching schedule for next semester."
SEVERAL STUDENTS in the pro-
gram were not happy with the decision.
Said one second-year student, "I'm dis-
appointed, I guess. I had wished for
something else, something a little more
assertive than that, something more
concrete. It has absolved them (the
administration) of any responsibility if
the professors decide not to teach."
Another student expressed similar
concern that Lohr's decision would not

dealing with it," she said. The student
added she was "getting fed up with the
whole thing. They (the administration)
are just patting us on the heads and say-

any effort to let us know what's going
on. People are getting sick of the whole

Trowbridge said. "That's the normal
length of time. I don't think the judge
will take that into consideration."
Democrats, however, like Council-
man Earl Greene, see Belcher's deci-
sion as political maneuvering on the
part of the Republicans, who hope to
hold onto Belcher's Fifth Ward seat
in the event that Belcher is declared
"He (Belcher) expects to unseat
Wheeler in the court process and he
fully expects to be mayor," Greene
says. "By not running, they secure
the two Fifth Ward seats and they
plan on Belcher becoming mayor."
"I used to be too
uncomfortable to do
much of anything when I
had my menstrual
period. It was like losing
at least three days every
month. Then, last year, I
switched to Tampax
tampons. Now I'm
always on the go:'
Making every day
count is what Tampax
tampons are all about.
They eliminate chafing,
bulk and bulges. In fact,
once the tampon is prop-
erly in place, you can't
even feel it's there.
tampons are uniquely
designed to conform to
individual vaginal con-
tours. Which means
there's less chance of
leakage or bypass.
But while Belcher's decision not to
run is being construed as a GOP
power play, the Democrats have
other plans. Some, like Grace and
Greene, do not think Belcher's
vacant seat will necessarily be a
"Each year, we have gotten more
and more," Greene said.
Belcher, meanwhile, still considers
himself a force in the upcoming
elections and in future Ann Arbor
"I'm too young to give up politics,"
Belcher said. "It's too much fun. I'll
stay in city politics, though - I don't
want to go to Lansing."~
Belcher said he had no plans to
make a second run for the Mayor's
office in 1979, saying, "I hope to be
mayor by then."
