The Hump is dumped
Humphrey is getting his walking papers.
Humphrey, age 5, is a male Bactrian camel,
the two-hump model, purchased by a Washing-
ton, D.C. zoo as a romantic interest and father
image for the zoo's woman Bactrians. In the
zoo's breeding farm at Front Royal, Va., he
seemed to be getting the job done, at least in
the opinion of those who watched from a dis-
tance. But it turned out that Humphrey had
been, uh, well, gelded, according to zoo officials.
"A clipped orchid," as one put it. They discovered
this condition when Humphrey was examined by
the artificial insemination people. The zoo said
that the dealer who sold Humphrey to them in
a, package deal for $35,000 has promised to re-
place him with the real thing. The dealer, who
requests anonymity, pleads ignorance to the en-
tire affair.

An Alabama federal judge has ruled that con-

Tuesday's election. U.S. District Court Judge J.
Foy Guin Jr., enjoined officials from enforcing
a section of the state constitution that denies
the vote to men convicted of wife beating, a
misdemeanor in Alabama. Guin's ruling came
in response to a suit filed by a Wayne Hob-
son, convicted in 1972 of assault and battery
against his wife. His suit claimed the law de-
nied equal protection because it applied only to

Bayh stumps for Carter i~n

Not of Jerry Ford, but rather
of Independent presidential can-
didate Eugene McCarthy.

liberal college students into votes

c a m p a i g n organizers have
brought two of the party's most
progressive and influencial

members to local campuses-
Arizona Congressman Mo Udall,
who was in town Tuesday, and
Indiana Senator Birch Bayh,
who spoke to EMU students yes-
terday in Ypsilanti.
Bayh, like Udall, tried hard
to counter the argument often
heard among McCarthy support-
ers - that if Carter loses they
can elect a more liberal can-
"Perhaps that was the same
argument that was being made
back in '68," he said "as a

HE WENT ON TO attack
President Ford's stance on the
crime issue for what he said
was a lack of commitment to
alleviate the problems that
cause crime.
"The reason crime continues
to escalate at an alarming rate
is that we are unwilling as a
society ... to bring to bear on
the lives of children those ser-
vices that are necessary to keep
children who have trouble ...
from becoming adults who have
trouble and trouble society for
the rest of their lives," he

ever, for Ford's economic poli.

policies are not in the best in-
terest of the country," he said,

"The Ford administration is
timid about getting the country
put back to work ... Instead of
cooling it (the economy) off
they put it in the deep freeze."
Earlier he said in an inter-
view that Ford's veto of the
higher education bill cost the
nation's students over one mil-
lion loans and scholarships.
He also discussed the future
of the left or 'progressive' wing
of the Democratic Party and
his role in it.
"I think the more progres-
sive wing of the party has a
very important role - moving
the party in the direction of
new ideas (and) making cer-
tain that we remain sensitive
to human rights. And I think
it has and will continue to play
that role," he said.
HE ADDED, "I don't think
that I'll ever run for president
again. I hope that we're going
to have eight years of a Car-
ter administration ... Frankly,

Empty seats mark
Regental debate
Four invited major party candidates for University Regent-
plus one uninvited Libertarian hopeful - met in a student-spon-
sored debate last night before a threadbare gathering the size of
most recitation' sections.
Incumbent Democrats Gerald Dunn (Lansing) and Robert
Nederlander (Birmingham) and Republicans Earl Gabriel (Dear-
born Heights) and David Upton (St. Joseph) were joined at the
Union by Libertarian James Hudler, a recent University gradu-
ate who claimed he was not invited to participate in the event.
Hudler, however, was urged by
{' yDunn to join the invited quartet

espoused on a cornucopia of
topics ranging from tuition to
Title IX, roughly 25 persons -
including the children of some
candidates - listened attentive-
h lv. Several students occasion-
. ally approached a podium to
directly grill the candidates.
;'"I would have liked' to have
seen a full stadium," said a dis-
appointed Upton after the 90-
minute debate. "Lots of stu-
Duiin dents probably don't even vote
and probably most of them
don't even know what the Board

Syrians cooperate

By AP and Reuter
BEIRUT - The 18-month-old Lebanese civil war was hit with
a new development yesterday-indications that Syria and the
Palestinian commando movement, bitter foes in the struggle, were
cooperating for the first time in nine months.
Commando reinforcements, released from virtual captivity in
Syria. have been allowed to pass through the Bekaa Valley in
Syrian-controlled eastern Lebanon to reach bases near the Israeli
border, Palestinian officers in the village of Kfair said yesterday.
THE PRESENCE OF the newly-arrived commandos in Kfair
and nearby Hasbaivah indicated Syria has reopened the so-called
"Arafat trail."
