It's the real thing
If the first day of classes has already got you down, there is an escape
mute-and you don't have to take a train or plane to get there. Just hoof it
over to the Daily at 420 Maynard St. (next tothe Student Activities Build-
ing) and leave the rigors of that ivory tower academia behind (until the day
befdre the final). Addicted Daily-ites will tell you that dealing with the,
"real" world through daily reporting or editing wire stories from around the
world will keep you in touch and in a sane state of mind (most of the
time). Join us Monday, Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m. for a mass meeting, won't
you?
Going. :going.. gone!
Twitch your nose, rub your elbow or just scream out-today's your
chance to demonstrate some imagination and shopping prowess at the Great
Hospital Auctiop. Yes, folks,, adorn your house, apartment or dorm room
with a nifty electric lhspital bed or an examination table. The old St.
Joseph's Hospital at 326 N. Ingalls offers furnishings to fit all needs: if you
find you can't stand your roommate after two days of misery, buy a patient
room divider. Maybe your living room is empty? Fill it up with "waiting
roo modular seating" (you have to get your magazines elsewhere,
though). Perhaps the landlord lied about the fireplace? Have no fear, St.
Joe's offers the next best thing, an artificial fireplace. Maybe the landlord
lied about the heating? Well, electric heaters are a comfortable substitute.
Walls bare? Choose from more than 100 pictures and frames that once hung
in those hallowed halls of hospital green. But if you can't handle that, they
also have plenty of traditional fare-dressers, toasters, shelves,. chairs,
stoves, cabinets. The affair runs from 10:30 a. . to 6:30 p.m. as the profes-
sional auctioneers run on and on at the mouth. A hospital spakesperson says
everything must go. The policy is cash or check and carry, and the gala
event will be out in the parking lot facing Glen Street, rain or shine. Just
hope those bedpans, scalpels, and stethoscopes don't rust.
r
Bargains are not for the birds
If hospitals depress you, try your luck at the Kiwanis Sale at the corner
of Washington and First Streets. Though the sale is scheduled to begin at 9
a.m., bargain-hunters have traditionally set up camp outside the building as
the birds begin their tweeting. Anything for a deal.
Happenings....
... are scant today, if you're not interested in parting with greenbacks
... The Uhiversity of Michigan Sailing Club sails alone as today's only event
with its open meeting at Baseline Lake, running all day. Rides are available
from Pound House on the corner of Hill St. and E. University. For. more in-
formation, call the club at 426-3126 or come to the weekly meetings on
Thursdaysin 311 W. Engineering Building... . If you're a landlubber, our
only suggestion lis to pasrty down tonight. Ya got no choice.
On the outside..
Enjoy the breeze as it slaps your face and the sun as it tans you. The
mercury, however, will hit only 72 degrees this afternoon. But it'll be a gor-
geous day-enjoy it.

Amin's firing squad
shoots 15 conspirators

XAMPALA* Uganda (AP) - A
firing squad executed 15 men con-
victed of plotting against President
Idi Amin, shooting them one by one
yesterday as they stood tied against
sand-filled water drums on the
outskirts of Kampala.
A large crowd watched as the
executions, ordered by the Military
Defense Council and approved by
Amin, were carried out at 5:05 p.m.
(10:05 a.m. EDT), near the Queen's
clock tower here.
THE BODIES of the 15 condemned
men, who were lined up in the same
spot where a number of guerrillas
faced Uganda's first public execution
by firing squad in 1973, fell one after
the other when the bullets hit.
Radio Uganda, in a broadcast
monitoied in London, said 35 minutes
before the executions took place:
"Life President Idi Amin has
warned that anybody, be he a
minister or high-rankingbsecurity
officer or a civilian, who engages in
subversive activities against Ugan-
da, is actually committing suicide."
AMIN WAS QUOTED as saying no
country in the world can tolerate
subversive activity aimed at over-
throwing the government.
Radio Uganda was silent yesterday
on Amin's condition following a
previous broadcast thathe under-
went surgery in Kampala's Mulago
Hospital two days ago for an undis-
closed ailment.
Amin signed the execution papers
Tuesday, rejecting a last-minute
appeal for mercy from Liberian
President William Tolbert. Amin had
said he could not ignore the directive
of the Military Defense Council.
TWELVE OF THE c'ondemned
men were convicted last month of
plotting to overthrow Amin in an
abortive coup allegedly timed to
coincide with the sixth anniversary
of the dictator's accession to power
Jan. 26. The other three were sen-
tenced in July on treason and murder;
charges.
According to earlier Radio Uganda
broadcasts monitored in Nairobi, 12
of the condemned men were convict-
ed Aug. 22 before a military tribunal
in Kampala's City Hall.
THEY PLEADED guilty at the
two-week trial and outlined their
roles in the abortive coup attempt: It

Park claims surprise
at American indictment
SEOUL* . .South Korea (AP) -
Businessman Tongsun Park said
yesterday he was surprised and
"totally disappointed" at his Ameri-
can indictment in an alleged South
Korean influence-buying scheme on
Capitol Hill.,
The millionaire rice dealer said he
had received advice from his Ameri-
can attorney not to return to the
United States as long as "an emotion-
ally charged atmosphere" surrounds
the congressional scandal.
BUT PARK INDICATED to a news
conference on the steps of the Seoul
District Prosecution Office that he
had not made any final decision on
whether to go back to Washington at
some later date.
"I always have had great confi-
dence in the American people," he
told reporters in English. "Its fair-
ness and justice will prevail even on
my situation, and I look forward to
the day."
