Anatomy of a rumor
Ever wonder how rumors are born? A little
vignette from the world of the big 'U' illustrates
th'e delicate timing and vivid imagination that
go into the making of a rumor. Picture this scene:
It's approximately 12:30 yesterday, another quiet,
routine day of comings and goings at the Union.
Suddenly, a sharp blast rings out, much like the
sound of a gun firing. A few minutes later, po-
lice and an emergency unit arrive and take away
a 'prostate figure. Curious observers, visions of'
Adam-12 and Dragnet dancing in their heads, pass
the word that somebody has been shot. Upon get-
ting wind of the alleged gunplay, we check with
the desk at the Union and to and behold, the
truth shines forth. Apparently, the rumor germina-
ted from an unusual confluence of unrelated events:
the backfire of a garbage truck and an unfortu-
nate soul's fainting attack. Is this how Rona Bar-
rett got started?
Whether you fancy yourself a budding Lenin
or Trotsky or just a curious proletarian like the
rest of us, you might be interested to know that
Elio Gabbuggiani, mayor of Florence, Italy and
member of the Central Committee and Direzione
of the Italian Communist Party will be on cam-
pus next Tuesday to deliver a public address on
"Eurocommunism and the Future of Italy." One
of the leading figures in the Italian Communist
Party, Gabbuggiani has gained prominence for his
efforts to improve relations between Italian Com-
munists and the U.S. He is in the area heading
up an official delegation from his city, the his-
toric center of the Italian Renaissance, to honor
the opening of Detroit's Renaissance Center.

REPRESSION IN CHILE:
Letelier tells of terror
By PAULINE TOOLE
Isabel Letelier, widow of the late Chilean exile Orlando Letel
last night discussed her husband's death and the terror surround
Chileans who oppose the junta government.
"That morning, we said goodbye," she told a crowd of
who gathered in the Pendleton Room of the Union. "The n

to Two Stockwell residents are seeking action
rm- against their building director, Mildred Morris,
ing who they charge has falsely accused them of
setting a fire outside the women's residence hall
The two Filipino sophomores, Consuelo Ancog
and Evalour Ramos, have gone before housing
officials with their complaint against Morris.
They allege that she called them into her office
on April 1 and stated that she had seen them
at the site of the March 15 fire.
HOWEVER, MORRIS' only official action in
the case has been to write both women a "warn-
ing" letter asserting that they started the blaze
ier, and emphasizing the dangers of fire.
ing In the letter, Morris explained the two-week
delay between the date of the fire and her con-
70 frontation with the two women, saying that she
ext had consulted with other housing officials and
rng- concluded that the letter would be more effective
of than harsh disciplinary action.
Morris was unavailable for comment yesterday.
mb She is out of town for the week as is Housing
of- Director John Feldkamp, who is studying the
THE BLAZE, set on a concrete apron just out-
of side of Stockwell's cafeteria, did not cause any
ion serious damage to the building.
"We deny the charges and have proof of where
we were that night," Ancog said. "We're bring-
ing it to the housing directors and telling them
that we're innocent. We don't know why Mrs.
Morris is saying this. We'd like to see the guilt
However, Associate Housing Director Robert
Hughes explained his office's immediate plans
for dealing with the problem: "We're asking Mrs.
Morris to try to get this matter resolved with
the students when she returns next week.
"IF IT CANNOT be resolved at that level," he
said, "then it will have to be resolved at a higher
level in the organization. But we won't make a
decision until all the facts are in."
"She has accused us in writing and we want
some action taken by the housing directors," An-
cog said. "If nothing is done, we'd like to take
her to court and charge her with fabricating false
accusations or defamation of character, but we're
not really sure we have a case."
"We don't think she's capable of taking care of
400 girls," she charged. "We'd like to see her
suspended or demoted."
,According to Ancog, a group of Stockwell resi-
dents are discussing the idea of starting a peti-
tion, demanding Morris' removal from her posi-
tion. The students claim Morris has demonstrated
incompetence in other areas as well as the recent
fire incident. Ancog particularly cited irregulari-
ties in Stockwell's room lottery system.
Holden: Ba bies get a second chance
By LAURA LIEBLER
The proud parents of three
other healthy children, the Issels
were hardly prepared when their
fourth child was b o r n. two
months early-and nearly dead.
With underdeveloped lungs in
danger of collapse, David Issel's
tiny, gray body was unable to
sustain itself without outside aid.
Ten years ago, David would
have certainly died within hours
of birth. However, new special-
ized facilities like those at the
Holden Center in the Univer-
sity's medical center complex
offered David a chance to live.
NOW ONE of Holden's success
stories, 18-month-old David has
since developed into a normal,
healthy t o d d l e r who races
through his Ann Arbor home at
a pace his brother Mark de-
scribes as "nerve-wracking."
At the University, critically ill
newborns can receive special-
ized medical assistance at the
Holden Intensive Care Nursery.
This unit, part of the James and
Lynelle Holden Perinatal Re-
search Laboratories, provides a
specialized staff and sophisti-
cated equipment, among the
best in the state, to treat babies
born prematurely, with birth de-
fects or with metabolic diseases.

by his premature birth. His un-
derdeveloped lu n g s made his
breathing undependable. His im-
mature liver could not break
down food and waste products
efficiently, so jaundice was a
constant threat. And a fetal
blood vessel that usually closes
at birth, remained open, caus-
ing much of his blood to bypass
the lungs and travel through the
body without sufficient oxygen.
"David wasn't expected to
live for the first 24 hours," Issel
says. "We had people all over
the country praying for him.
"When I went to see David,
he would grab my finger and
pull. When I prayed for him, it
seemed like he pulled harder. I
think he could sense that we
wanted this baby, and that he
had to fight to live."
TO TREAT problems such as
David's, the Holden staff relies
heavily on complex equipment.
Each newborn lives in an in-
cubator that controls the heat
and humidity of the baby's en-
vironment. S p e c i a l sensors
taped to the infant's body lead
to monitors that register vital
signs-heart rate, body temper-
ature, blood p r e s s u r e-and
alarms sound when the signs
