Police believe that one man is responsible for
the series of assaults of women during this past
month. He is described as a black man, about
5'10". He has .stocky build and smooth ,r me-
dium skin texture. He is usually wearing some
king of head apparel. The Ann Arbor News re-
ported yesterday that some of these attacks have
occurred during daylight hours. The city police
say that no such attacks have occurred. If you
have any information concerning this man, call
the Ann Arbor police at 994-2880 or 994-2875. If
you are assaulted, call 911. The University se-
curity emergency number is 763-1131, but call
the police first.
Absentee Regents
Next time your profs get down on you for
cutting class, and you need a new line to hand
them, try this one - "If the Regents can do it,
why can't I" Only three of the eight members
of the Board of Regents showed up for yester-
day's meeting to discuss last year's research ex-
penditures. Vice-president for Research Charles
Overberger told the meager gathering that al-
though expenditures had increased significantly
over the past 10 years, that because of inflation
the number of "real dollars" spent on research
has dropped over 7 per cent since 1967. The Re-
gents who attended were Gerald Dunn, Paul
Brown and Thomas Roach. Regent Deane Baker
walked in with only 10 minutes remaining in the
Ed and Carl
Canvassers in Wayne, Monroe and Washtenaw
County are all done and the final score in the
Pierce-Pursell race for the Second Congressional
district remains pretty much the same - Pur-
sell, 95,397 to Pierce's 95,053, a margin of 344
votes. In light of these figures, Pursell has is-
sued a statement saying he is making all prepara-
tions to take office. Pierce, meanwhile, has not
ruled out the possibility of calling for a re-count.
Pierce aides are reportedly still checking over
data for possible errors. Sources say the prob-
ability of a complete re-count is remote but sev-
eral precinct tallies may be suspect. 'Absentee
ballots have also been a focus for concern among
Pierce analysts. Pierce will probably make some
statement early next week, concerning a re-count.
Of f with their heads
With the big OSU-Michigan game rapidly ap-
proaching, Columbus city officials are trying to
save themselves a big headache by removing the
"heads" of 355 parking meters in the OSU area.
Recalling the scene two years ago, when OSU
won 12-10, and jubilant fans caused over $25,000
worth of damage by tearing the "heads" off the
meters, the Division of Traffic Engineering fig-
ured it would be wiser to spend $200 now than
thousands later. But it seems that the wrong
city is taking the precautions. It is Ann Arbor
that should be fixing the meters, because we're
going to win it this time -- GO BLUE

Rape vici
The rash of rapes and assaults on women which have oc-
curred during the past month has ridden/our community with
tension, fear and anger. Men and women alike are addressing
many questions not only to the city police and University
security, but also to friends and to themselves.
Who will be next and how do we protect ourselves?
WHAT IS it like to be raped and how does it affect its vic-
What can people do to help rape victims?
Most important, what can be done to stop these attacks?
Two rape victims from Oxford Housing have decided to tell
their story. Both women - who will be called Mary and Jill-
were attacked at South University and Oxford three weeks
apart. The most recent one occurred three days ago. Perhaps,
then, we can begin to answer these nagging questions.
THREE WEEKS ago Mary was walking home from work at
12:30 a.m. She was almost at the end of South University at
Oxford when a man walked passed her, walking ahead of her






for about half a block. Then as she began to cross the street, he
came back, grabbed her from behind and put a knife to her
throat, warning, "Scream and I'll kill you."
"I looked around but there were no cars or people. He
"T~hen you read about rape, it's something
that happens to other people. It's like car
accidents, or being robbed or having cancer.
I'd never applied it to my body before."
pulled me towards the driveway. I kept thinking he'd steal my
camera. The knife was always pressing against my throat . . .
He seemed inclined to kill me."
He pulled her into a garage and she began to cry. He told
her to shut up. "I had on a skirt with a leotard and tights. He

couldn't figure it out. He stepped back while holding my hair.
He told me to get undressed but it was 28 degrees outside and I
said no. Finally, I undressed - as slowly as possible hoping
someone would come by. He told me to lay down and he put
a blouse over my face. The only time I saw his face was when
he was walking on the street. When he was done he told me to
sit up and put on my coat and wait ten minutes. I waited one
minute, then went home across the street."
MARY RAN to the room of her resident director and he
called campus security and the police. When the police arrived,
a policewoman questioned her briefly. They took her clothes in
order to look for clues about the rapist - such as hair or
sperm. They then took er to the hospital where she spent the
next three hours taking a battery of tests.
They also took samples of her head and pubic hair, saliva,
and blood. She was given a pelvic examination and two penicil-
lin shots for protection against venereal disease. A counselor
from the Women's Crisis Center was also available.

In an exhaustive bar-
gainiug session between
GEO and University nego-
tiators yesterday, every
thorny issue down to eco-
nomics and affirmative ac-
tion was settled - except
one. One that may delay
a contract agreemont for
some time, according to
both sides.
The issue is a complicat-
ed one. GEO submitted a
grievance under the last
cohtract charging the Uni-
versity illegally removed

departments. The two sides

BUT while GEO wants to
sign the contract now, retain-

settle until this language is

new contract they have griev-

THESE STUDENTS at Angell Hall get the finger yesterday,
both literally and rhetorically, from a staff member giving
directions while they wait for their CRISP tickets. The lines
have become ludicrously long.
Students lanaguish in
CRISPtick.et lines
The rush for early CRISP registration dates has made
Angell Hall the most popular camp site at the university.
LSA assistant dean Eugene Nissen called the situation "the
worst in our experience," and remarked "each passing day the
lines get longer earlier." CRISP registration began Nov. 8 for
seniors and Nov. 11 for underclasspersons.
BY MIDNIGHT WEDNESDAY, about 18 students kept a
cold vigil on the top steps at Angell, wrapped in blankets or
equipped with sleeping bags. Earlier, about 30 other students
stopped by to sign their names on a list, reserving a place in

Chilean .junta



Isabel Allende, daughter of the late Chilean
President Salvador Allende, yesterday criticized
the American government for supplying financial
aid to" the junta which was responsible for her
father's death in 1973.
Speaking through an interpreter before a
packed Rackham Auditorium crowd as part of
the final session of the Tepch-In on Terror in

Although she is now living in exile, Allende
said she felt it was her duty "to carry on the
struggle for my companeros still in Chile."
SHE SAID Americans should pressure the gov-
ernment to stop economic aid to Pinochet and to
demand an investigation into the crimes of the
junta. She also urged members of the audienc
to boycott Chilean products so that the junta wil
not have any more money to purchase arms.
