Turkish jet I
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Two
armed hijackers seized a Turk-
ish jetliner with 181 persons
aboard during a domestic flight
yesterday and forced it to land
in Beirut. The hijackers I a t e r
surrendered after releasing the
passengers unharmed.
The hijackers, identified by
the pilot as Ismail and Hannafi,
first demanded fuel and t h e
equivalent of $300 000 in Turkish
currency after the Boeing 727
landed about 500 yards from the
civil war-damaged airport ter-
Later, they asked to be taken
to a Palestinian refugee camp
"where someone speaks Turk-
ish, that's all." They finally sur-
rendered to' Lebanese authori-
ties after less than three hours
on the ground.
Premier Salim El-Hoss per-
sonally directed the negotia-
tions, which were hampered by
language problems. The two hi-
jackers spoke Turkish and Kur-
dish, languages rarely heard ini
Arabic-speaking Beirut.
Finally, a Turkish-speaking
news photographer was able to
translate into Arabic for the
authorities until a Turkish dip-
lomat*arrived at the airpor*.
Turkish Airlines officials said
the plane was seized while on
a domestic flight from t h e
southeastern Turkish town of
Diyarbakir to the capital of
Ankara. Tentminutes before the
scheduled arrival in Ankara, the
pilot radioed that he had been
ordered to change course f o r
Beirut, they said.

- VIENTIANE, Laos -- A U.S.
presidential commission arrived
here yesterday to continue its
quest for information on Amer-
icans rmising in the Indochina
war. An official newspaper said
any such accounting was 1;nk-
ed -to a Laotian request for U.S.
economic aid.

The five-member commission
flew from Hanoi aboard a U.S.
Air Force jet, which continued
to Bangkok with the remains of
12 American pilots killed in the
Vietnam War. The remains, in
smal black caskets, were hand-
ed over to the delegation Friday
by Vietnamese authorities.
After refueling in the T h a i
capital and at Clark Air Force
Base in .the Philippines, the jet
left for Honolulu, where it was
due about midnight EST. The
U.S. Embassy in Bangkok said
another plane would be sent to
Vientiane to pick up the com-
mision Sunday after it fiaishes
talks with Laotian oficials.
The commission, led by Leon-
ard Woodcock, president of the
United Auto Workers Union, was
greeted at the Vientiane aiirport
by Foreign Secretary Nouphan
The Americans were to hold
talks with several top Laotian
officials, including President
Souphanuvong, before flying
back to the United States.
President Carter sent the
commission to Indochina to seek
an accounting of the 795 Amer-
ican servicemen still listed by
the Pentagon as mising in ac-
tion and to lay the foundation
i.for diplomatic relations with the
Communist governments who
now control the region.

WASHINGTON - Congress is'
on the verge of scuttling Presi-
dent Carter's proposal to elim-
inate virtually all federal funds
for the National Direct Student
Loan Program, a cheap source
of loans for college students.
The House has approved $300
million for the program, enough
to continue to serve 835,000 stu-
dents at current loan levels.,
The Senate Appropriations
Committee is expected to act
this week on a recommendation
by one of its subcommittees that
$321 million be spent on the pro-
gram, enough to add 33,030 stu-
dents to the rolls.

Tonight in the Modern Languages Bldg.
(John Ford, 1953) 7 only-MLB 4
The underrated masterpiece of Ford's career and his favorite of
his 140 films. A reworking of JUDGE PRIEST, THE, SUN SHINES
BRIGHT centers on a series of incidents in which a judge shames
his community into an awareness of its intolerance. "The beauty
of THE SUN SHINES BRIGHT is in its innocence; the film is not
a piece of historical documentation but one man's fervent crea-
tion of, a simpler, kindlier and more gentlemanly America than
ever existed."-Joseph McBride, Michael Wilmington in John Ford.
"This film is for my money, the revelation of Ford's later career."

(John Ford, 1952) 9:00 only-MLB 4
Ford's Irish films have a special quality and this film, one of the
great and most humane film comedies, won the Best Picture
Oscar. Ford called it his "first love story." A retired Irish-Ameri-
can with money (John Wayne) arrives in Ireland seeking peace.
He doesn't find it when he marries Maureen O'Hara; she insists
on recovering her small dowry even though her brother refuses to
release it. Wayne, who doesn't want ever to fight again, "feels his
masculinity and ability to provide for her impugned,. until she
finally makes him understand that it isn't the money, but what
it stands for: the dowry and furniture are her identity, her
independence."-Molly Haskell. The inevitable confrontation be-
tween Wayne and victor McLaglen (as the brother) has to be
film's funniest brawl-with an intermission at the local pub--
cheered on by the villagers including the parish priest, and the
Anglican minister. The cast contains a full complement of Ford
regulars. With Ward Bond, Mildred Natwick, Barry Fitzgerald;
Jack McGowran, Francis Ford, Pat Wayne. Wayne called this his
hardest role-playing straight man to Hollywood's finest comedic

Enthusiasm greets
joint terminal proposal

Overwhelming approval of a
proposal for a multi-model
downtown transportation termin-
al is practically insured, al-
though the site for the terminal
is not quite settled.
The planned structure, provid-
ing 500 to 700 public parking
spaces as well as doubling as
a central transfer point for Ann
Arbor Transportation Authority'
(AATA) buses, awaits an offic-
ial vote to be taken following
the April 4 city elections.
"EVERYBODY has been quite
enthusiastic about the idea of
a joint transfer system," AATA
Director Karl Guenther said.
"The idea has universal en-
dorsement with the AATA."
A harder question has been
where to build the multi-model
terminal, although one particu-
lar site has received favorable
attention. A joint committee of
administrators and city and
county heads are presently look-
ing at the block where the Town
Club stands right now, located
between First and Ashley at Hu-
ron and Washington Streets.
Both of the mayoral candi-
dates, Louis Belcher (R-Fifth
Ward) and Democratic Mayor
Albert Wheeler have endorsed
the site, noted Guenther, add-
ing, "All of us look to the mayor
for the final decision."
"THE LOCATION being con-
sidered is already a surface
parking lot and is convenient
to downtown," explained Wheel-
er. "I would like to see it also
as a bus terminal to reduce
waiting on 'the street."
Wheeler suggested that park-
ing facilities be constructed on
the fringe area of the city to
encourage greater us8 of the
transit system. "We spent a lot
of money on the buns system -
I would like to see maximum
use of the two mills people ap-
propriated for it."

An advantage for the suggest-
ed site is that it is on a state
trunkline '(Huron) which could
be of some benefit in securing
state funds 'and providing a
terminal for SEMTA and Grey-
hound buses.
THE PRIMARY factors the
Joint Committee considered in
determining the location were:
- easy access to and from
the site for both public transit
and private vehicles.
- availability and cost of land.
-maximum utilization of exist-
ing physical resources and utili-
- pedestrian access to the
site and the relation it would
have with the adopted Down-
town Plan.
The current parking spaces at
this site would not be available
during construction. However
the County Jail block and addi-
tional blocks could provide tem-
porary parking during construc-
tion, the Committee reported.
churches, and residents have
raised violent objection to AATA
transfer points outside their
buildings. A central transfer
point would alleviate the prob-
lem in addition to providing
badly needed parking places.
The site is currently not list-
ed for sale but the joint com-
mittee feels that a purchase
