Fee hike fight
The Committee to Fight the Tuition Hike an-
nounced tentative plans last night to organize a
boycott of classes September 18 protesting the six
per cent tuition hike. The group discussed other
tactics, including plans to address the September
19 Board of Regents meeting and various methods
of rallying support for the strike, including a pos-
sible student-worker alliance. The meeting was ad-
dressed by Leroy Washington, a spokesman from
the American Federation of State, County, and
Municipal Employes local 1583 and Frank Cou-
vares, a representative of the Graduate Employes'
Organization. Both unions have pledged support
for the committee, which has scheduled another
meeting for tomorrow night.

Small jaws
A Connecticut town remained calm Sunday after
a wide-eyed youth reported sighting a shark. After
all, police said, the three-foot sand shark was
only "swimming" in the Danbury library fountain.
The fish with the small jaws met anfate similar to
its man-eating movie star counterpart. The city's
dog warden "disposed" of the intruder.
Senator Richard Schweiker (R-Pa.) introduced
legislation yesterday calling for a new investiga-

He said new evidence had destroyed the credibility

showed that the FBI had destroyed and suppressed

tion; which concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was
alone responsible for the 1963 killing.

tions calling for the elimination of liquor advlertis-

kidnappers. Guido, a trained bird and champion
songster, disappeared from his cage near Venice

Mother awaits


of two abducted sons


For Kathy Bodary, the tears were painfully familiar.
Her two young sons were abducted last week by her
ex-husband, a former Ann Arbor police officer, for the
third time in as many years, and as she spoke of her
children her voice was strained and weary.
"THE CHILDREN don't hate their daddy," she
sighed, "but they fear him because every time they see
him he takes them away from me.''
Divorced from Robert John Irvine since 1972, Bodary,
25, has been trying to construct a stable family life for
five-year-old Andrew and six-year-old Alexander with
her present husband Michael.
But Irvine's frightening insistence on repeatedly flee-
ing with the children and his unwillingness to cooperate
with the Bodary's attempts to gain permanent custody
of the boys, have created constant anxiety for the family

KATHY BODARY holds pictures of her two children. The boys were abducted for
the third time Tuesday by their father Robert Irvine, Bodary's former husband.

Louisville buses
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (1P - Armed National Guardsmen
and police with firm instructions to prevent any violence
rode school buses here yesterday, but attendance still
dropped in Jefferson County schools.
Supt. Ernest Grayson said that 66,728 of 118,000 youngsters
eligible were present for classes on the third day of school deseg-
regation. A total of 80,238hadoenrolled.
JEFFERSON COUNTY schools have an estimated 20 per cent
black enrollment. About half those being bused are black.
Grayson also said 84 of the approximately 6,300 teachers were


of four.
IRVINE, 30, made his latest abduction of the children
from their Ypsilanti home last Tuesday morning, this
time assaulting his estranged wife, before fleeing with
the children.
Mr. Bodary, who had returned Sunday with his wife
and the boys from a 10-day New Hampshire vacation,
left the family's large home near the EMU campus
shortly after 7:30 that morning to return to work after
the Labor Day weekend.
FOLLOWING her husband's departure, Bodary tried
to fall asleep again but was disturbed by noises she
heard coming from the living room. After first dismiss-
ing them as groans attributable to the ageing house, she
became concerned when the noise did not cease, and
left the bedroom to investigate.

There were no pickets, ap-
parently because of an order
from U.S. District Court Judge

schools "off-limits" to every-
one but required personnel.
Gordon also banned demon-
strations after a weekend of
violence which ended with near-
ly 200 persons injured and about
600 arrested on various charges.
GRAYSON said approximately
200 bus drivers did not report
for work, including some who
explained they were refused gas
by service stations. The 577
buses are owned by the school
system and private contractors.
A check at two schools, which
had experienced weekend trou-
ble, showed low attendance.
Attendance at Southern High
School in southwestern Jefferson
County was reported at 440 out
of 889 pupils enrolled. At Shaw-
nee High School, where 203
black pupils were picked up by
buses for the trip to Valley High
last Friday, only 129 were on
hand for pickup yesterday. Val-
ley was the scene of an anti-
busing riot Friday night. Gray-
son said some drivers reported
they were threatened. He said
some quit as they were about
to begin their runs.
JESSE SIMPSON, executive
director of the Kentucky Gaso-
line Marketers Association in
Louisville, said the organization
did not advocate withholding gas
from school buses "but it's a
personal decision on the part of
each dealer."

dean hits CR1

A University administrator
called the new computerized
registration system's perform-
ance last week a "minor dis-
aster" at last night's Literary
College (LSA) faculty meeting.
Associate Dean for Academic
Affairs Charles Morris said too
many students seeking to regis-
ter and drop-add, combined with
insufficient staffing, caused de-
lays of up to five hours.
BUT, MORRIS said he ex-
pects the problem to ease this
week as fewer students seek to
make schedule changes.
In other business, it was an-
nounced that the LSA deanship
search committee has begun a
preliminary screening of candi-
dates without its two allotted
student members.
Prof. Donald Eschman, a
member of the LSA Executive
Committee, said the students'

absence stems from a dispute
between University President
Robben Fleming and the LSA
Student Government (LSASG).
Fleming requested a list of
prospective student committee
members last July, but LSASG
asked for total control over the
selections and submitted only
two names.
ZOOLOGY Prof. Billy Frye
begins his second year this
term as acting LSA dean. Last
year, the Administration reject-
ed the Board of Regents' choice
of black woman educator Jewel
Cobb for the prestigious post.
The vacancy was created when
Frank Rhodes moved from the
dean's office to the vice presi-
dency for academic affairs.
Morris said that CRISP's
problems were not due to tech-
nical difficulties. The system's
30 terminals, he added, are de-
signed to accommodate 1600
students per day.

Ex- Godwater man
changes his tune
Just over 11 years ago, Senator Barry Goldwater stepped
to the podium in San Francisco's cavernous Cow Palace to
the strains of a mighty brass band and the applause of a
raucously cheering crowd.
The arch-Conservative Republican had just been nom-
inated for President - in a campaign doomed to defeat from
the outset - but in the emotional intoxication of the moment,
victory seemed obtainable.
