False alarms
Residents of Markley Hall have gotten more
than their share of exercise lately. Fire scares
yesterday afternoon and Friday night sent stu-
dents scurrying outside for safety. Turns out the
problem Friday night was smoke from an over-
heated elevator motor. Spokespersons for the Ann
Arbor fire department and the University's utili-
ties department said a sudden drop in electrical
current throughout the University caused the motor
to overheat. The problem has since been correct-
ed. Yesterday afternoon, residents got another
scare when smoke was reported on the building's
fifth and sixth floors. The dormitory was again
evacuated, but Ann Arbor fire officials respond-
ing to the call found no fire.

NAIROBI, Kenya - Ugandan President Idi Amin
has no intention of holding as hostages the 240 Amer-
icans being detained in neighboring Uganda for a
meeting with Amin Monday morning, Uganda Radio
said yesterday.
"This has never crossed his mind," the govern-
ment-controlled radio quoted an Amin spokesperson
as saying, "He has never thought of making any of
them hostages. It is the U. S. imperialists putting
words into his mouth."
AFTER AMIN ordered his forces Friday not to
allow any Americans to legve Uganda, a spokesper-
son for President Carter said the United States
would do "whatever is necessary" to save American
A four-ship U. S. Navy task force led by the nu-
clear-powered carrier Enterprise cruised off East
Africa yesterday, and military analysts in Washing-.
ton said military staff officers doubtlessly were con-

sidering possible options in case of an emergency.
But U. S. officials played down the possibility of a
military mission to rescue the Americans. And Car-
ter told reporters he believes the Ugandan situation
is "going to be all right."
SECRETARY OF State Cyrus Vance said yester-
day he believed Americans who have been barred
from leaving Uganda will be safe and a crisis over
the situation will be averted.
At the same time, the White House issued a state-
ment saying the United States welcomed Uganda's
assurances of safety for the more than 200 Ameri-
cans, but said it remained concerned about their
Amin was quoted by Uga-da Radio as saying he
is ready to meet any "task forces." This may have
*been a reference to his earlier charge, denied by
the White House, that 5,000 U. S. Marines were pois-
ed to invade Uganda.

THE U. S. force in the Indian Ocean is several
hundred miles from landlocked Uganda. It is com-
posed of the Enterprise, for the cruisers Truxton
and Long Beach, the submarine Tautog and 200
Military officials said the Enterprise does not
have enough helicopters to mount an airlift to rescue
the U. S. nationals.
Gen. George Brown, chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff, said Friday night he believes "reason will
prevail." Asked whether the United States could
protect its citizens in Uganda, Brown replied, "I
think that the United States has adequate forces to
respond to any likely contingelcy anywhere in the

Violets - and a host of other flowers, for that
matter - were blue Friday when the results of
the National Flower Election were announced. The
winner, with 125,253 votes, was the rose, and sup-
porters of other floral candidates were disgruntled.
"How the hell could the r6se be No. 1?" asked
a Stillwell, Indiana housewife and outspoken mari-
gold booster. "Roses today cost $35 a dozen."
"The national flower really should be the thistle,"
grumbled a voter in Houghton, Michigan. "It's
like Congress - blooms every four years and
never does anything." Mariquana made a surpris
ingly strong write-in showing, placing 30th with
1,306 votes, and Sen. Hubert Humphrey noted that
the marijuana vote "finished up on a high."
Failed, you say?
It could have been Bailey Dean's last cup of
coffee. Dean, a Philadelphia teacher, reprimand-
ed a 16-year-old student Thursday for swearing
and being disruptive in class. Yesterday, the stu-
dent offered him a cup of coffee in what Dean
considered a gesture of reconciliation. After a
tiny sip, though, he began to feel ill; after re-
porting to the school nurse, he was rushed to the
hospital. The student, it seems, had liberally laced
Dean's coffee with hydrochloric acid - enough
to turn his insides 'into soup. Dean was treated
and released, the student was arrested and turn-
ed over to his parents pending a hearing Mon-
day, and school officials are wondering where
the hydrochloric acid came from. Let that be
a lesson to professors wavering between C-minuses
and D-pluses.

Ogcuis nEot the onlyV
Soviet to visi U'
If the only three living people from the Soviet Union you
can think of are Lennid Brezhnev, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and
Olga Korbut, you're not alone. According to the University's two
visiting professors from the U.S.S.R., few Americans know what
life is re-lly like in the Soviet Union.
B-t Sergei G'ibin and Vladislav Luferenko, who have been
in the United States since August, say that while there really
isn't much difference between the standard of living in the two
countries, some facets of American culture have surprised them.
THE TWO SOVIETS are doing research at the University
until June as part of a U.S.-Soviet professor exchange program.
They say one of the most noticeable differences between the
universities the two taught at in the Soviet Union and those here
is the freedom students have in choosing their own curriculum.
"At the college in Dontsky (located in the Southern Ukraine)
where I teach," said Luferenko, a 34-year-old mathematician,
"Students have their first three years of college standardized.

jected because of its wage of-
ferings. AFSCME sought nearly
a 15 per cent pay raise over
three years, but finally ended
up with only a five per cenit in-
crease over two years.
Union Local President Joel
Block says the strike will con-
tinue as long as the University
refuses to recognize the "just
demands of this union."
Yesterday's fourth day of the
walkout was marked by a bi-
zarre morning incident at the
University laundry facilities,
where a member of the
AFSCME bargaining team was
hit by a truck driven by the
leader of the University bar-
gaining team.
TIM SEGUIN, a colleague of
Anderson's on the AFSCME
bargaining team, was helping
oversee a group of union picket-
ers at the University laundry fa-

Blue slip by.
MSU, 69-65
Michigan scored six unanswered points in the first 2:05 of
overtime and held off a determined Michigan State rally to down
the Spartans 69-65 yesterday and just about lock up a fourth
straight invitation to the NCAA tournament.
After the teams, battled to a 57-57 deadlock in regulation time,
John Robinson canned a lay-up six seconds into the overtime ses-
sion to give the Wolverines the lead for good, 59-57.
WITH 3:12'LEFT Phil Hubbard hit on a lay-up and 17 seconds
later Green scored on a rebound of a Hubbard miss to give Michi-
gan a 63-57 lead.
The Spartans refused to fold and managed to pull within two,
67-65, with 12 seconds to play, on a lay-up by forward -Greg Kelser,
the game's high scorer with 25 points.
However, Green was intentionally fouled by Spartan guard
Terry Donnelly on the inbounds pass. The senior All-American,
who had converted only two of six free throws in the game, iced
the victory for the Wolverines as he swished both charity tosses
giving Michigan its third straight win.
"WE'RE VERY HAPPY to win that one," said Michigan coach
Johnny Orr. "It was a battle to the end.'
"We're elated with the win," Orr added. "I think this will
clinch our NCAA bid. Now we've got to go on the road for two
games and if we win one we'll be tied and if we win both, we'll
definitely be the Big Ten chamoion."
