State officials said yesterday that the light radio-
active fallout sprinkling parts of the eastern U.S.
has also been detected in small amounts in Michi-
gan. Department of Public Health Radiologist Don-
ald Van Farowe said the slight increase in radio-
activity is presumably the result of the Sept. 26
nuclear explosion in western China-a blast which
scattered light fallout over Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, South Carolina and other eastern states.
But he added that scientists won't be sure of the
cause of the phenomenonsuntil the end of theweek,
when the results of tests are complete. Van Fa-
rowe says the public has nothing to fear from the
radiation increase, as "it is well within the safe

The House Committee released i final report
on Daniel Schorr's leak of the intelligence panel
report yesterday, denouncing the reporter's actions
as "reprehensible." The report said "someone on
or very close" to the staff of the Select House
Intelligence Committee must have leaked the re-
port to the former CBS correspondent, who in turn
arranged for its publication in the Village Voice.
Despite several weeks of hearings, a $200,000 bud-
get, and a threat to cite Schorr for contempt of
Congress, the panel never found out precisely
who was responsible for the leak. "The news media
frequently do not possess sufficient information on
which to make a prudent decision on whether the
revelation will help or harm," the report said in
lambasting Schorr. "We suggest caution and dis-
cretion should be the watchwords."

Leroy Pess, who has spent the last 18 years in a
Miami prison for robbery, has finally convinced
officials that his alibi was true: he was robbing a
store 300 miles away at the time. A circuit judge
heard arguments on the case yesterday, but re-
served judgment. State Atty. Richard Gerstein,
however, says he's "personally convinced that it
was a case of mistaken identification and the con-
viction must be set aside." Although witnesses
placed him in the Miami drug store during the
robbery, Pess says he was breaking into a Day-
tona Beach supermarket at the moment. A lie de-
tector test seems to have confirmed his version of
the story. If freed, he'll be off the hook for the

Kissinger s foreign policy slammed

By The Associated Press and Reuter
SAN FRANCISCO - An aggres-
sive Jimmy Carter sharply attacked
President Ford's foreign policies last
night in a nationally-televised debate
that will have a major bearing on
their battle for the Presidency.
A telephone survey conducted for
the Public Broadcasting System by
pollster Burns Roper gave the edge
to Democrat Carter. Roper said 40
per cent of those surveyed thought
the Democratic nominee had won the
debate, 30 per cent gave it to Ford,
and 30 per cent considered it a draw.
His sample of 300 viewers leaves a
margin for error of about six per

WHEN THE SECOND installment
of their nationally televised Great
Debate series was over, both White
House rivals said they were satis-
fied. Ford said, "I think we did all
right." And Carter declared, "I felt
good about the debate."
In an hour-and-a-half debate mark-
ed by a succession of sharp exchang-
es, Carter accused Ford of abdicating
foreign policy control to Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger. He also said
Ford has "always shown a weakness
in yielding to pressure" from foreign
Ford countered that he has nego-
tiated foreign policy successfully and

from a position of strength that would
be undercut by defense spending re-
ductions Carter has advocated.
ON TWO POINTS, Ford showed
the political power that lies with the
incumbent: he disclosed that the So-
viet Union has signaled readiness to
narrow differences and shape "a real-
istic and sound compromise" for a
new agreement to limit strategic nu-
clear weapons, and he said that on
Thursday the administration will an-
nounce the names of companies that
have participated in the Arab boy-
cott against Israel.
Again and again, Carter said Ford
has failed to provide leadership; Ford

Military takes over in

race boils
With less than four weeks be-
fore the November 2 election,
the race for the 2nd Congres-
sional District seat between Re-
publican Carl Pursell and Demo-
crat Ed Pierce has reached full
boil. But neither candidate has
been able to forge an appreci-
able lead in the contest which
pits Pierce's 60's style liberal-
ism against Pursell's fiscal con-
The biggest obstacle confront-
ing the two contenders in their
quest for the seat being aban-
doned by Republican Senate
candidate Marvin Esch's is the
demographics of the incredibly
diverse 2nd District.
THE DISTRICT includes al-
most all of Monroe and Washte-
naw Counties and a corner of
Wayne county which contains
Northville, Plymouth and Li-
vonia. The electorate of this
area includes both rural and
urban, blue and white collar,
and high and low income vot-
ers. Thrown on top of this is
the highest density of students
in anyof the 435 congressional
Despite this broad variety of
interests, patterns of support
have emerged in recent weeks
as the candidates have made
the rounds of the district.
Pursell, a two-year state sen-
ator from Livonia, has been
running hard on his record
compiled over the last six
years while making jabs at
Pierce's relative lack of po-
litical experience. Pursell has
also attempted to brand Pierce
as a spendthrift, as well as ac-
cusing the Democrat of making
promises for the sake of po-
litical, expediency.
AS PURSELL sees it, the two
have "a difference in approach-
es. My opponent promising ev-
erything to everybody - and
my record of competence, in-
tegrity and credibility."

22 reported dead in
anti-communRist coupy
By The Associated Press and Reuter News Service
BANGKOK, Thailand - A military man known
for his tough stance against communism seized power
in Thailand yesterday after savage battles between left-
ist and rightist students that left at least 22 persons
dead and about 180 wounded, by police count.
Unconfirmed reports put the death toll at 35 or
THE ANNOUNCEMENT of the lightning coup that ended
three years of democracy said a group calling itself the Ad-
ministration Reform Committee (ARC) had assumed power to
prevent the country being taken over by Communists.
The military strongman, Defense Minister Sangad Chalawyu,
said on Radio Thailand: "One thing which I must stress to you
is that the ARC will strictly uphold the principles of democracy."
Martial law was imposed, all political meetings were banned

A BLEEDING LEFTIST student is helped to an ambulance by a trooper and a girl following
his arrest. Authorities assaulted the campus of Thammasat University in Bangkok yesterday to
suppress a letfist student demonstration against the return of Thailand's former military dicta-
tor. Before it was over the military had overthrown the country's three-year-old democracy.
Sheriff hopefuls bicker

and Bangkok, whose nightspots
are a magnet for thousands of
tourists, was placed under cur-
few from midnight to 5 a.m.
Press censorship was imposed.
THE 60-YEAR-OLD admiral,
who had served for only one
day as defense minister in the
fledgling civilian government of
Prime Minister Seni Pramoj,
said the ARC was made up en-
tirely of senior armed forces
Two of the victims were hang-
ed and their bodies mutilated,
and others were set afire in the
fighting at Thammasat Univer-
sity. The violence grew out of
leftist protests against the re-
turn home last month of for-
mer dictator Thanom Kittika-
chorn, who was ousted by stu-
dent protests three years ago.
It was not known whether
there was any connection be-
tween Thanom and the coup.
Leftist student opposition also
led to the withdrawal last spring
of all remaining American ser-
vicemen in Thailand, a close
ally of the United States during
the Vietnam war.
BY NIGHT, the city was calm
with no overt opposition to the
"You can sleep well tonight.
You don't have to live in fear
anymore," Sangad told the na-
tion in an evening television
Police said most of the con-
firmed dead were students.

DETROIT - Top executives
of the United Auto Workers
(UAW) were being asked yes-
terday to accept a tentative
three-year agreement between
the union and Ford Motor Co.
The UAW's International Ex-
ecutive Board, made up of 26
officers and regional directors,
and the union's National Ford
Council must .approve the of-
fer before it goes to the 99
Ford bergaining units around
the country for a ratification
vote. The executive board was
to meet last night.
A union spokesman refused
to disclose whether the board
approved the pact, saying the
outcome of the meeting would
be released today.
DETAILS OF THE accord will
not be made public until the
board and the council approve
Meanwhile, some of the 170,-
-000 rank-and-file UAW Ford
workers, who also must approve
the agreement reached late
Tuesday, predicted easy passage

As the November election approaches, pro-
tection for outlying areas of Washtenaw County
and control of drug traffic have emerged as
key issues in the sheriff's race. Although all
four of the candidates agree on the needs in
these areas, each has offered different solutions
to local problems.
The campaign has also been marked by an
abundance of statistic juggling and name-calling
between the two major party candidates. Demo-
cratic incumbent Fred Postill and Republican
challenger Tom Minick have traded a series of
accusations utilizing statistics to prove their op-
ponents inability to perform the sheriff's job.
MINICK HAS SAID "Postill is incapable of
relating to people," while Postill has called his

opponent "uneducated."
State statute defines the steriff's job as that
of chief law enforcement officer of a county.
The sheriff has control over any civil or crim-
inal infraction of the law in the county, and un-
like most other police officers who are tested
to insure their qualifications for the job, is
Two of Postill's opponents also claim experi-
ence in police matters.. Minick has served 16
years on the Ann Arbor force, 11 of those years
in a command position. Eric Jackson of the
Human Rights Party contends that he too is
knowledgeable in law enforcement affairs, hav-
ing spent 30 days in the Washtenaw County
Jail in 1971.

Swine flu vaccine available
at "U' starting November 15

As part of the nationwide im-
munization program to blunt the
impact of a possible influenza
epilemic, swine flu vaccine will
tentatively become available to
the University community No-
vember 15-17.
Free public clinics at four
campus locations will be run by

Department to administer the

Most persons over 50 year old
have had some contact with the
1918-19 pandemic that killed
over 500,000 Americans and 20
million people world-wide. But
Monto explains that those over
25 years of age are slightly less
susceptible than college-age per-

"IF WE CONSIDER basically

American deaths in 1918-19); 2.
Enidemic outbreak like 1957 or
