South bound express
A man jumped aboard an empty 37-passenger
Greyhound bus parked behinda terminal in Toledo
yesterday and took off. He headed south. The Ohio
highway patrol said it caught up with the bus and
David Washington near Bowling Green and charg-
ed the Detroit man with possession of stolen goods.
Police quoted Washington as saying he was tired
of unseasonably cold weather and wanted to go
south for the winter. It looks like the only place he
will be going now is down the river.

Smoking in the boys room
When the Hume, Mo., high school principal
caught three teen-aged boys" with cigarettes in
their pockets, he gave them a choice of punish-
ments: take a paddling or eat the cigarettes. Two
of the boys chose to eat a total of 18 cigarettes
and have developed health problems as a result,
their parents claim. When the boy's parents pro-
tested the punishment to the local school board,
the board voted to uphold the principal's actions.
One board membersaid the principal's authority
would be damaged unless the board supported
him. The boys, after eating the cigarettes began
to vomit, and one of the youngsters soon began to
spit up blood. Doctors say the tobacco irritated a
small ulcer, which existed prior to the incident.
Health officials around the country have express-
ed shock at the nature of the punishment. "That's
a very dangerous form of punishment," said Dr.
Paul Larsen, a pharmocology expert who studies
effects of tobacco at -the Medical College of Vir-
ginia. "I bet they were very, very sick."
What's in a name
Officials in Minds County, Miss., are receiving
complaints after mailing out 1,000 license plates
with the prefix "GAY" ahead of the numbers. J.
W. Howell, director of the state Motor Vehicle
Comptroller's tag division said "nothing offen-
sive was meant." He added, "No one in this office
ever thought of it in another term." County Tax
Collector Jake Richardson -said he would be "glad
to take them back if recipients don't want them."
He added that "not everybody wants a car labeled
More name games

A New York state supreme Court justice believes
he did a Long Island feminist and the English lan-
guage a favor by rejecting her request to change
her name from Ellen Cooperman to (you guessed
it) Ellen Cooperperson. "The use of the proposed
name would demean the woman's liberation move-
ment and expose is to ridicule," Justice John Sci-
leppi said in his opinion. Cooperman stated in her
application that the name Cooperperson "more
properly reflects her sense of human equality than
does" . . . her present surname. The judge noted
in his opinion "I fail to see how the beneficent
goals of the woman's liberation movement are
advanced one iota by the fetish of some people
over the use of these words." He went on to point
to possible repercussions of approving the name
change, such as efforts to change "Jackson" to
"Jackchild," or "Manning" to "Peopleing."

Special to The Daily
SOUTHFIELD - Senate candidates
Marvin Esch and Donald Riegle tried to
get back to policy issues in a debate here
last night, but were not able to shed the
animosity and personal charges that have
stained their campaign in recent weeks.
Speaking before a largely Jewish audi-
ence of 850, both congressmen called for
the ousting of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff George Brown, who is reported
to have said recently that Israel is a
strategic burden to the United States.
ESCH SAID HE wired a recommenda-
tion to President Ford yesterday that Brown
be forced from his post, and Riegle called
Brown "the Earl Butz of the Pentagon.
He ought not to be asked to resign; he
ought 'to be fired."

"ness hi
The debate was sponsored by the Jewish
Community Council of Metropolitan Detroit
In opening statements, both candidates
pledged to talk about policy and they clari-
fied their differences on energy, housing,
defense spending, and tne economy.
But when Esch called into question Rie-
gle's voting record, on crime, the Flint
Democrat angrily said that Esch's charge
was a "malicious distortion that's being
used by Republicans across the country
in an attempt to make Democrats look
soft on crime. Make no mistake about it
- it's Nixon-style politics .. .
"WHEN I WAS IN ISRAEL . . . when
I was in the Memorial for the Six Million,
I saw examples on the wall there, in
(Nazi propagandist) newspapers, of exact-
ly the kind of thing that has been di-
rected against me in recent weeks. That's

how it started, and let me tell you some-
thing, if they're able to destroy my can-
didacy with those kind of tactics then no
one in this state is going to be safe. You'll
see in future elections more and more dis-
tortions and I think it's important that
those kind of tactics not be allowed to
Riegle's anger was apparently part of
a new strategy to put Esch on the de-
fensive after a devastating few days for
the Democrat. On Sunday, the Detroit
News reported an extra-marital affair con=
ducted by Riegle with an unpaid staff
member in 1969. Riegle admitted the af-
fair, called it a "foolish mistake," and
said he held Esch "personally responsible

Over 300 members of the
Graduate Employee Or-
ganization (GEO) braved
rain and cold weather last
night to attend a mass
meeting at the League Ball-
room, and voted unani-
mously to extend their
contract deadline one more
week, to Oct. 26.
The union also decided that
if a settlement is not reached by
the 26th, a meeting will be
held to decide whether or not
to initiate a strike referendum.
If a strike referendum were
initiated it would taketthree
days to conduct, and the re-
sults would most likely be re
leased at a mass meeting on
November 1.
THE DECISION to extend
the deadline was prompted by
the University's return to the
bargaining table earlier this
week. The two bargaining
teams met Monday and again
yesterday in their first face-to-
face session in nearly two
months, and both sides report-
ed that some progress was
"I was somewhat disappoint-
ed in how much we got done,"
said Chief University Bargainer
John Forsyth, "but we did agree
on one point, so there was some
progress made."
A tentative agreement was
reached on the definition of a
GSA "in good standing".
"I AM somewhat encouraged
by A it (the tentative agree-

ment)," said GEO Treasurer
Barbara Weinstein. "I am hop-
ing that they will get down to
some serious bargaining before
next week's deadline."
But, both sides were quick to
point out that the GSA good
standing issue was a minor one,
and. Weinstein added, "We're
still far apart on the issues that
are really important." -
The "really .important" is-
sues that remain undecided in-
clude salary, tuition, affirma-
tive action, non-discrimination
and class size. GEO vice-presi-
dent Nancy Kushigian labeled

any of these as "strikeable is-
IN, THE only other action at
last night's meeting, a motion
was made that the union ac-
cept the Administration's eco-
nomic offer of a 5 per cent
raise, under the condition the
University would agree to
GEO's demands for affirmative
action, non-discrimination and
smaller class size. The motion
was defeated by nearly a two to
one margin on the grounds that
the University would never ac-

Peace plan slackens
i ghtingin Lebanon
By The Associated Press and Reut-er News Service
BEIRUT - Fighting appeared to slacken in most of Leb-
anon yesterday after announcement of an Arab plan for end-
ing the civil war, but Palestinian and left wing forces battled
with rightists fo'r a village in the south.
Most Lebanese political- leaders were cautiously optimistic
over the plan, drawn up by six Arab leaders at a summit con-
ference in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh.
unable to find a way out of Lebanon to attend the Riyadh meet-
ing, said: "Some groups may have reservations about the re-
sult, but it is the best that could be done."
The plan calls for a ceasefire starting at midnight today (EDT),
backed by a 30,000-strong Arab peacekeeping force.
Leftist leader Kamal Junblatt said that if Egypt, Iraq and
Algeria join the proposed force then "we have reached safety."
