Last supper
Mother Nature lashed out at Charles Raslich
yesterday three days after he enjoyed the fruits
of a dangerous hobby; mushroom picking. Ras-
lich, 75, died at University Hospital from the poi-
son in galerina mushrooms, which resemble edible
young puff ball mushrooms. 'The late Raslich's
son and another man are still hospitalized and
listed in fair condition for eating the wild fungi.
All three of the neo-Euell Gibbonses were treated
with a new drug, thiotic acid, which was flown
here from a San Francisco Hospital in hopes of
counteracting the mushrooms' poison.
Fowl play
A customer at the Chicken Little restaurant in
Ypsilanti decided his meal wasn't to his liking
last night and gave the manager a licking-instead
of his fingers. After the attack the victim drove to
the Sheriff's Department in Ypsilanti and told this
tale: A customer entered the restaurant with
friends, ordered a meal, and then began to com-
plain about its quality. Becoming incensed, he
then followed the manager to the back of the
establishment where he struck him, knocked him
down, and kicked him until other customers came
to the rescue. The man then ran out the door and
is being sought by police.
Fleming's vantage point
University President Robben Fleming has start-
ed a one-man "courtesy in the consumption of
combustibles" drive. In a recent memo to the
faculty, Fleming let it be known that he would
like smoking in the classrooms to stop. "Whether
or not faculty members or individual students
wish to smoke," he wrote, "is, of course, a mat-
ter of personal decision," "But it is not fair to
inflict one's personal decision in this area on
others." The President added that it would seem
to him unreasonable to believe that tobacco smok-
ers "cannot survive a classroom hour without
smoking." Perhaps as an alternative to Flem-
ing's suggestion the time schedule could rate
classes on levels of tar and nicotine.
Snap, crackle and flop
CRISP is up to its old tricks again. The drop-
and-add line at the old Architecture Building was
delayed for approximately an hour and a half
yesterday morning, as annoyed students stood on
the stairway leading up to the room that houses
the CRISP computer terminals. Program co-ordi-
nator John Lehman explained the delay: "Some-
body at Data Systems was debugging a new pro-
gram and apparently it went into an endless loop
and brought the system down." Asked if he an-
ticipates any more delays before the end of drop-
and-add, Lehman commented, "I hope not, be-
cause it's not the fault of CRISP." Whatever the
reason, it appears that the University's brainchild
has fallen out of favor with those who have been
forced to deal with it.
Volunteers needed
The training schools at Maxey and Adrian have
openings for tutors. The pay is non-existent, but
you can get up to three credits-almost as valu-
able as cash. Apply at Project Community, 2204

list revealed
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (P) - Sandra Good, a
disciple of mass murderer Charles Manson, said
yesterday that an "International People's Court
of Retribution" has marked for assassination
scores of business executives whose firms dam-
age the environment.
Good, 30, is the roommate of Lynette "Squeaky"
Fromme, another Manson follower, who was in-
dicted by a federal grand jury here Wednesday
for the attempted assassination of President Ford.
IN AN INTERVIEW in her apartment, Good
revealed a list of about 75 names of persons she
said were marked for death.
She identified them as executives primarily in
the power, lumber, oil, food and chemical in-

Fromme, at her arraignment for attempted mur-
der of President Ford, was ousted from federal
court yesterday when she demanded justice for
redwood trees and told the judge: "The gun is
pointed, your honor."
The red-robed Fromme,. 26, a disciple of mass
murderer Charles Manson, demanded to speak
despite the judge's warning that she might preju-
dice her chance for a fair trial.
"THIS is more important to me at this time,"
Fromme declared in a clear, calm voice over a
courtroom microphone. "I'm the one that has to
sit in the cell and worry about it."
After a second warning from U.S. District Court
Judge Thomas MacBride, she launched her
rambling dissertation on redwood trees.

Hoffa book

An autobiography by missing
former Teamster President
James Hoffa has been rushed
into print in the wake of
Hoffa's suspicious disappear-
ance. "H o f f a - The Real
Story," originally scheduled
for publication next February,
was introduced yesterday at a
news conference by Hoffa's
son, James Hoffa Jr. In the
autobiography, Hoffa vowed to
take the union leadership back
from his successor, Frank
Fitzsimmons, a n d accused
Fitzsimmons of funneling mil-
lion of union funds into "hood-
lum hands."

Fact ions divide clerical Ufli

Groups of University clericals
met yesterday as part of a grow.
ing drive to thwart what they
see as an attempt by former
members of their contract bar-
gaining team to take control of
their new union local.
The local (UAW 2001), which
last month ratified its first con-
tract with the University, is cur-
rently in the process of estab-
lishing a set of by-laws and
electing a body of officials.
Several clericals who are for-
mer bargaining team members,
acting on what they claim is
UAW tradition, have appointed
themselves to draft the by-laws,
without consent or authorization
from the local clerical member-
Another group, calling itself
Clericals for a Democratic Union

(CDU), is challenging that ac-
tion. CDU spokeswoman Sue
Hanson said, 'The only differ-
ence between the authority of
the ex-bargaining team and any-
one else is that (since the con-
tract negotiations) they hold the
keys to the office."
"WE WANT to build an effec-
:ve local and we want to do
that by calling for the election
of a by-laws committee," she
added. "We're calling fo rthis
election and we hope they (the
ex-bargaining team) would lis-
ten to the membership."
Former bargainer Jane Gould
sided with the CDU against her
former team members. "These
laws are going to govern the lo-
cal for years to come," she said.
"Ex-bargaining team members
have no authority to write the

by-laws. And if the local does
not have a hand in writing them
we are not going to have a
democratic local."
THE BY-LAWS are critical in
controlling the power and poc-
ketbooks of soon-to-be-elected
local officials. They also con-
tain clauses regulating com-
munication channels between
membership and officials.
In protesting the ex-bargain-
ing units efforts to draft bylaws

Weeks explained, "We're trying
to per kthe rug out from under

local jobs as steppingstones-up

in N.H.
MILFORD, N.H. (RP) - Presi-
dent Ford, on his first political
outing since last week's assas-
sination attempt, appeared to be
wearing a protective vest yes-
terday while campaigning in
New Hampshire.
The President was greeted by
friendly crowds as he sought to
boost Republican Louis Wy-
man's chances in next Tues-
day's special Senate election.
SECRET Service agents and
White House officials refused to
confirm or deny that Ford was
wearing a protective vest. But
the outlines of some sort of ad-
ditional garment were visible
through the back of his jacket,
and his shirt-front appeared
tightly drawn.
The day-long m o t o r c a d e
showed that the President had
lost none of his zest for shaking
hands and reaching out to the
thousands who greeted him at
more than a dozen stops in
towns and highway crossings.
Republicans hoped the Presi-
dent's visit would boost the turn-
out next Tuesday and overcome
the extensive organizational ef-
fort by the Democratic candi-
date, John Durkin.

Despite a sharp nationwide decline in
SAT scores last year, results for incom-
ing University freshpeople dropped only
According to the College Entrance Ex-
amination Board (CEEB), the verbal
and mathematical aptitude scores of
college-bound high school graduates
plummeted this year by the biggest mar-
gin in at least two decades.
COMMENTING ON the mild drop in
the scores of University applicants, As-
sistant Admissions Director Donald
Swain said yesterday: "I don't really
care whether the SAT's have declined

434 this year. The average mathematical
scores slipped from 480 in 1974 to 472
this year.
BUT, Benno Fricke, director of the
Evaluations and Examinations Office at
the University, is quick to point out that
there are many problems in comparing
present scores with those of previous
"In 1941-42," he commented, "the stu-
dents that were tested were mainly ap-
plicants for private colleges, such as
Harvard, Princeton and Yale. But today,
most schools require applicants to take

vard and those applying to Georgia State
