Miserable mosquitos
The weather has been blamed for everything
from skyrocketing food prices to spoiled picnics;
now you can add it to your hate list for spawning
the annoying increase in mosquitoes this month.
According to University Professor of Zoology
Thomas Moore, the three inches of rain that fell
within a six-day period early this month created
a large number of "temporary ponds" - areas of
standing water on the ground, some only the size
of a footprint, where the insects breed best. The
fairly warm weather which followed the rain com-
pounded the problem, he says. But the professor
adds that the worst times may be ahead of us.
"We have the conditions which could give us a
large mosquito spring," he says, explaining that
the large number of females around now mean
more eggs. Also, late mosquito larvae and pupae
can survive right through the winter and emerge as
adults in the spring, says Moore.

From the hallowed halls of the ivory tower comes
the sigh, "Ah, if only we had more money.."
Well, the King of Malaysia has set an example
which could provide the extra funds for our rapid-
ly-diminishing coffers. The 58-year-old sultan's
first act was to cut his salary by five per cent. The
entire Malaysian cabinet, deputy ministers, par-
liamentary secretaries, and political secretaries,
have also agreed to the five per cent cut. The king,
rulers and governors earn about 3,500 U.S. dollars
a month and receive other benefits like entertain-
ment allowances, palaces, and servants.

Archeologists in Iizuka, Japan, have just discov-

the books. The three-quarter-inch thick petrified
egg was supposedly laid by an ichthyornis whose

Dr. Ikuo Obata of the research section of Tokyo's
Archeological Museum said ichthyornis fossils have
been reported found in the United States but that
this could be the first discovery of an ichthyornis
egg. The egg was found recently in the fossil of
an ammonite, an extinct shellfish of the Mesozoic
period - that was before eggs cost eighty cents a

Local reaction last night to
the second. assassination at-
tempt in 17 days on the life of
President Gerald Ford appears
to be one of surprise and out-
"I'm shocked about it," com-
mented John Roundtree, a liter-
ary college (LSA) sophomore.
"I like the guy, but if he's
smart, he better resign now
while he's got a chance," he
continued, "somebody's going to
get him sooner or later."
"I'M AMAZED," exclaimed
Residential College sophomore
Tom Liebman, "her being de-
tained and then let go is some-
thing." He said that it would
take "a whole lot of money" to
protect him adequately and, like
others, wasn't sure whether it
was possible to coipletely pro-
tect a President against assas-
He said that the recent at-
tempts "could be just a wave"
but said that "the third time's

From wire Service Reports
SAN FRANCISCO - A woman fired a pistol shot at
President Ford as he emerged from the St. Francis Hotel
in downtown San Francisco yesterday, but a spectator
knocked the barrel of the gun away as the bullet was
fired. The President was unharmed. She was arraigned
on a charge of attempting to kill the President and or-
dered held on $500,000 bail.
On his arrival at the White House last night, Ford
commented on the second attempt on his life and stated
that "under no circumstances willi I capitulate." He said
he would continue to mingle with the people.
POLICE SAID THE WOMAN, who was identified as
Sarah Moore, 45, and had been interviewed just Sunday
night at a potential threat to the President, was imme-
diately taken into custody.
As the arrested woman_,n~
was hustled through the
crowd, s o m e expressed
their hostility with shouts
of "kill the bastard."
Moore, was about 35 to
40 feet away from Ford.
She was said by police to be
a known activist in a num-
ber of leftist causes in the
Bay Area, including a mas-
sive food giveaway last
year intended to help se-
cure the release of kidnap-
ed heiress Patricia Hearst.
crowd turned suddenly to Ford
screams, Ford was rushed
by Secret Service agents into his waiting limousine and
sped to the airport. The presidential jet was airborne
about 30 minutes later, at 3:55 p.m., headed for Washing-
It was not known whether the President was wearing
the bullet-proof vest he wore in New Hampshire in his
first public outing after an attempt on his life by a fol-
lower of Charles Manson in Sacramento.
At the airport, Ford appeared- shaken and pale as
he shook hands with the escort policemen before board-
ing Air Force One. But White House Press Secretary Ron
Nessen reported from the plane about on hour later -
"In a word, he is relaxed."
THE PRESIDENT'S WIFE, Betty, was waiting for him
at the airport. Nessen said she, too, appeared relaxed.
Police said an alert spectator, Oliver Sipple, a 33-
year-old ex-Marine from San Francisco, was responsible
for striking the gun just as it fired. The bullet riocheted
and struck another onlooker, injuring him slightly.
A police officer, Tim Hettrich, then seized the cylin-
der of the .38-calibre revolver, preventing it from dis-

Tuition at state-supported colleges and
universities will increase an average of 100
per cent over the next 10 years, according
to a State Board of Education survey re-
leased yesterday.
At the same time, the survey noted,
enrollments at the institutions will decline
and demands for financial aid will increase
a:- many students will be hard-pressed to
meet the projected fee hikes.
BUT ACCORDING to one state offiical
who participated in the survey, the enroll-
ment of the University's Ann Arbor campus
will not be affected as much as other state
schools such as Michigan State or Wayne
State University.
"Michigan may not be as detrimentally
affected as the others since it is a high
prestige school," commented Weston Agor,
a consultant in the higher education plan-
ning department.

to double
Weston also reported that the declining
enrollment projections will not hold true
for the University because of the supposed
"prestige" factor. "The enrollment will hold
or gradually increase" after 1985, whereas
enrollments at the other schools will begin
to decline after that date, he said.
DURING THE school year 1973-74, the
University's Ann Arbor campus had an en-
rollment of 36,744. By 1980, however, enroll-
ment will increase to 38,500 and by 1985
the University will have some 40,900 stu-
dents enrolled at the Ann Arbor campus,
according to the survey.
The report attributed the tuition increases
to an overall decline in state appropriations
for higher education and an annual inflation
rate of 10 per cent--two factors that led to
the recent six per cent average fee hike
for the 1975-76 school year. Another increase
in January has not been ruled out by Uni-
versity officials because of a possible fur-



ther reduction in state appropriations later
this year.
The survey noted that the University's
tuition increased from $280 per year in
1965-66 to an average $875 in 1974-75 for
in-state students-an overall increase of
100.3 per cent.
AND BECAUSE of the projected tuition
hikes, financial assistance demands will in-
crease drastically, Agor noted.
But according to Assistant Financial Aid
Director Paulette Stallworth, "It has a]-
ready been increasing-the work is so tre-
mendous." She said that since she began
working in the office in 1969, increased aid
requests have necessitated hiring more
counselors and persons processing the de-
But at this point, University officials
have made financial aid one of their highest
priorities. It is one of the few parts of the
University's budget that is not being cut.

Egypt, Israel finish
negotiations on pact
GENEVA - Egypt and Israel havecompleted negotiations on
implementing their Sinai interim peace agreement, informed
sources said late yesterday.
Agreement on the details of the pact came after 14 solid hours
of negotiations in the delegates' second consecutive all-night ses-
sion at the United Nations European office here.
THE TWO SIDES were striving to complete by today a proto-
.col setting out timetables and procedures for the implementation of
the agreement to meet the deadline set out in the accord, the
sources said.
The agreement, signed here on September 4, gave the dele-
gations two weeks to complete their work. The Geneva talks
opened here 14 days ago.
The sources said all contentious points in the documents had
been agreed to and the remaining items being dealt with in the
continuing session were of a minor and technical nature.
MEANWHILE, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger unveiled a
new U.S. diplomatic initiative for a Middle East settlement based
on an "informal" conference of Israel, the Arab states and other
interested nations yesterday.
