Movie Correction
The Daily had indicated that tonight's Mediatrics
movie in the Nat. Sci. Bldg. was Little Big Man.
But tonght's attraction is, instead, Lead Belly,
which you can see at 7:30 and 9:45.
Carter oft the line
Two University students calling a friend in New
York were put on hold yesterday- and heard wha
they claim to be a White House party line com-
plete with ol' Jimmuh himself on the horn. "The
voices had a southern accent, and it struck me as
odd," said Rackham student Richard Winer, who
listened for over a half hour following his request
to be kept on hold. "And all of a sudden someone
said Mr. Carter and I went hysterical." Winer
said he heard a voice mention something sounding
like, 'Mr. Carter, if we're going to tell everybody
else, we ought to turn our own thermostats down'
as well as 'Do you have a 50 channel CB in your
presidential pick-up truck?' Winer also claimed
hearing the words "Billy" and "Moscow" bandied
about. Winer later put his friend Joy Huber on
the line, who claims she heard someone ask the
President, "Are you thinking of bringing Liz Ray
(of all-sex, no-skills fame) back to your Cabinet
to keep your peanuts brittle?' To which our Presi-
dent reportedly replied. "Oh, that woman has quite
an imagination." Unless some folks were playing
an authentic joke over Bell Tel wires, we now
know what brand of drivel passes through the
White House channels of communication.
Sorry
In Thursday's Daily, we told the story of Stew-
art Mandell, the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
member who lost his seat. Well, we got a few
things mixed up in the process. Mandell missed
three MSA meetings (not two) and MSA Presi-
dent Scott Kellman did not ask the body to expel
Mandell when he missed his third meeting - he
automatically lost his seat through MSA rules. Man-
dell has filed suit with the Central Student Judi-
ciary (CSJ), claiming he did not receive sufficient
notification of the meetings. CSJ will hear his case
on Monday. Sorry.

Divorce, British-style
Doris May, 46, of London was granted a divorce
yesterday, but not without some pretty kinky tes-
timony spicing up the court hearing. Doris testi-
fied that her husband, Albert, had a penchant for
prancing outside their home in the buff when she
rejected his sexual advances. But Albert claimed
his wife applied the old supply and demand formula
to their sex life, and made him fork over $8.50 for
a week's worth of bedroom fun. Doris sued Albert
on the grounds that their 26-year marriage had
irretrievably gone down the drain. In granting the
decree in London's High Court, Justice Tudor
Evans concluded that Albert was "obsessed with.
religion", and had neglected his job as a sewiing
machine repairman in order to hit the street-
preaching circuit. The couple lost their home and
had no money for food. the justice said, and when
their financial situation became dire, Doris began
putting a price tag on her services. Doris claimed
the $8.50 was the only income she could muster
for food and other expenses. Poor, poor Dors.
Gotta dime?

When Mother Nature calls, it can be downright
embarr ssing to be caught without a dime in some
public buildings. However, help may be, on the
way. Pennsylvania's Public Utilities Commission
voted 3-2 Wednesday to find out if it can order
airline, bus and railroad terminals in the state to
provide more free restroom toilets. Presently,
Philadelphia International Airport's 126 pay toilets,
where patrons pay a dime each time, bring in
about $22,000 each year. The syrmpathetic agency
hopes to convert 52 of these toilets into free ones
for an equal number of each type. What a relief.

Tentative procedure for
department cuts adopted
By MICHAEL* YELLIN

The University Regents yesterday unanimously voted
to increase dorm rates an average of 8.4 per cent, while
also tentatively approving a set of procedures for drop-
ping whole departments from the University.
The dorm increases will raise rates to $1,906 for sing-
les, $1,638 for doubles and $1,444 for economy doubles
and triples.
THE HOUSING COST increases are likely to be ac-.
companiedbya tuition hike this year if the University
cannot get more state appropriations, a high University
administration source also said yesterday. A tuition in-
crease may be averted, however, if the state legislature

But it appears unlikely, ac-

when we got that much money,
but I wouldn't want to give up
hope," he said. University of-
ficials will go to Lansing to ask
for more money early next
month.

Regents yesterday.

The faculty's Senate Advisory Committee on University Af-
fairs (SACUA) will apparently serve as a review committee for
the selection of Frank Rhodes' replacement as academic affairs
vice-president.
Student government officials from the various schools and
colleges will probably also play a role in nominating and screen-
ing candidates for the job, but the ultimate decision will be re-
served for University President Robben Fleming.
THESE CONCLUSIONS ARE BASED on University Regent
Thomas Roach's (D-Detroit) report that the administration plan,
to follow the same process in finding Rhodes' successor as it
did to pick Rhodes in 1974 as replacement for Allan Smith.

STUDENTS WHO GUIDE STUDENTS:

Peer counseling a mixed bag

By ELIZABETH SLOWIK
Joe is a graduating senior who
needs to add two more credits to
his already heavy load. He
would like an easy class, some-
thing .that would be fun and not
time-consuming. What does he
do?
Joe is the typical student who_
walks into the Student Counsel-
ing Office (SCO) at 1018 Angell
Hall every day to receive help
offered by his peers on course
and instructor evaluations or in-
formal counseling.
BUT THIS PEER counseling

has caught criticism in Univer-
sity counseling circles, accord-
ing to Jamie Catlin, associate'
director of the LSA Counseling
Office.
"What it (SCO) does is for-
malize the grapevine," she said.
"But it doesn't replace LSA
counseling."
LSA Counselor Richard Vid-
mer cautiously supported the
students' office, saying: "You
have to take the bull by the
horns a bit. You've got to ex-
plore the universe of counseling
services available here. Stu-
dents can help with instructor

evaluations - that's stuff people
here (LSA) can't do.
"BUT SCO MAY know little
about other things like concen-
tration requirements, career
planning, regulations, and poli-
cies," he note'd. "It's hard to
beat people who deal with those
things day in and day out for
bread and butter."
"We have a book, that states
what to do in specific cases,"
countered SCO coordinator Mike
Rosenblatt. "It was given to us

by LSA counseling. If w
know, we check. As fa
reer planning, that's w
Career Planning and Pi
Office is for."
"Counseling is about
cent of our job," coo
Jeff Baker said, addingt
dent counselors use th
experience and backgr
SCO. "We're constantly{

student needs. The need
students are changing.

tions of The reports, published by the
d from Washington Post, that Hussein
the Cult has received'millions of dollars
for Mar- over 20 years, were rejected by
The CIA the Jordanian government as "a
- -- combination of fabrication and
distortion."
The Post story said the CIA
began supplying Hussein with
money in 1957, when the king
was .21. Former President
Dwight Eisenhower was in of-
fice at the time.
e don't * INITIAL PAYMENTS ran in-
r as ca- to millions of dollars, but di-

acement the newspaper said.
The Post said the CIA claim-
50 per ed that in exchange for the
)rdinator money, U. S. intelligence agen-
that stu- cies won permission to operate
eir own freely in Jordan over the
ound at years.

This of- king normally receiving the

station chief in Amman, ac-
cording to the Post.
"HUSSEIN himself provided
intelligence to the CIA and for-
warded money from the pay-
ments to other government of-
ficials who provided intelligence
or cooperated with the CIA," the
paper said.
The Post said the payments
were made outside the normal
channels of military and eco-
nomic assistance, although Hus-
sein regarded them as another
form of U: S. assistance.
President Carter's press sec-
retary, Jody Powell, declined
to confirm or deny the Post re-
port.
P 0 W E L L, issuing a state-
ment on the subject, urged re-
porters to "pay. close attention
to detail and nuance" in the
White House pronouncement.
"I can't tell you what con-
clusions to draw," said Powell.
The statement said that any
comment on published reports
concerning alleged secret ac-
tivities "would be a contradic-
tion in terms since the opera-
tion in question would no longer
be covert or secret."
A FORMER U. S. intelligence
officer said that the CIA sta-
tion chief in Jordan during the
late 1960s and early 1970s was
John O'Connell, now a Wash-
ington attorney who represents
the Jordanian eovernment.
