Hooky and God
Kids who hate school may be getting their signals
from that great professor in the sky-GOD. Roger
Peterson is in jail for refusing to send his seven-
year-old son to school. The Wisconsin man says,
"God has told us not to send our children to
school. He wants to teach them himself." Peterson
has some ideas on education that may hit home.
He said his son would "learn only fairy tales and
ponsense in school. You either believe or you
don't, and we believe."

Presidential protection
If Al Capone were alive and elected president,
he'd get the same Secret Service protection as
Jerry Ford, said a presidential friend and aide
yesterday. "The agents are all pro. It's their duty
to protect the president, and hell, they'd do that
even if the people elected an Al Capone for presi-
dent. But for this president they'd walk across live
coals," he said.
Who did it?
A muskrat turned the lights off for 1,385 cus-
tomers of the Pacific Gas and Electric Co. in
California for more than an hour Monday night.
And workmen think an owl put him up to it. The
muskrat's body was found stretched across three
circuits ten feet off the ground. Muskrats don't
climb, so how did it get up there? A PG&E public
information officer said the workmen have often
seen owls sitting atop the substation devouring
rats, mice, muskrats, or other prey. "I guess you
might say who's the culprit?" he joked.
A hairless affair
It cost a married Tokyo woman the hair on her
head to have an affair with another man. A court
convicted Seichiro Kikuchi, 29, yesterday of hack-
ing off part of his wife's hair with a samurai
sword and then forcing her to shave off the rest.
Kikuchi was placed on four years probation. He
was the second man in Japan tried for forcing
his wife to shave her head. In the other case the
court said, "Hair is not only a social necessity
for a woman. It is a large part of her life."

bust

By JIM TOBIN
Federal narcotic agents yesterday arrested
twenty persons and expected to round up at least
thirty more in an effort to crack a major city-
based drug ring.
Thirty agents of the Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration (DEA), working with state and local
police were involved in an intensive four-month
investigation of the operation.
None of those arrested were believed to be
University students.
DEA OFFICIALS called it one of the most
significant narcotics raids ever in the Michigan-
Ohio area, and described the ring as "a drug
supply center for seven states, with sources in
Mexico, Jamaica, and Canada."
When asked how the bust would affect Ann
Arbor narcotics traffic, city Police Chief Walter
Krasny declared, "I think it's going to make a
pretty good dent in it for awhile."

THREE RADICALS STILL WANTED:

By ANN MARIE LIPINSKI
Mayor Albert . Wheeler
issued an itemized veto of
a City Council approved
revenue sharing plan yes-
terday morning - insti-
gating political fireworks
which eventually may lead
to a Republican - engineer-
ed recall campaign against
the Democratic Mayor.
Wheeler's line item veto
halts expenditure of all
but $341,309 of the $2.4
million in Community De-
velopment Revenue Shar-
ing (CDRS) funds from
the federal government.
The money not blocked by
Wheeler's move will be issued
to 20 city programs which the
Mayor believes require emer-
gency funding.
WHEELER also announced
yesterday that he will be ap-
pointing a new CDRS citizens
committee to aid council in re-
vamping plans for spending the
remaining $2.1 million by late
October.
The CDRS resolution vetoed
by Wheeler was the product of
a Republican-Human Rights
Party (HRP) coalition which
drafted a compromise plan and
passed it with a 6-5 vote during
an emergency council session
last Friday.
The plan, which called for is-
suing all of the federal funds im-
mediately, was largely identical
to the final recommendations
made by a Citizens Advisory
Committee for CDRS inFebru-
ary. Council Democrats, how-
ever, opposed the plan for its
"piecemeal" o u t l i n e, and
claimed that it violated certain
pre-requisites established by the
Department of Housing and Ur-
ban Development (HUD).
WHEELER'S use of his veto
power - a rare action - will
undoubtedly spark Republican
and HRP retaliation. It is vir-
tually impossible however, for
Council to muster the eight
votes necessary to override the
veto. With Council Democrats,
supporting the Mayor's move,
the single HRP, and five Repub-
lican council members would,
fall two votes short- of success-
fully transcending the veto.

ened Wheeler with a recall last

Hearst

SAN FRANCISCO - A federal judge yesterday appointed a
panel of four psychiatrists and one psychologist to determine if
kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst is sane enough to
stand trial.
Hearst's lawyers, in an affidavit signed by her, claimed yes-
terday she had been brainwashed by her Symbionese Liberation
Army (SLA) captors and coerced into joining them as an under-
ground guerrilla.
Meanwhile, three fugitives who figure in the Patricia Hearst
probe are wanted by federal officials for questioning in connec-
tion with a brutal bank robbery-murder, it was learned yes-
terday.
A source close to the probe said James Kilgore and Kathy
and Josephine Soliah are being sought in connection with an

April 21 holdup of a branch of Crocker Bank in the Sacramento
suburb of Carmichael.
Walt Weiner, assistant agent in charge of the Sacramento
FBI office, said during the $15,000 robbery, Myrna Ophasl-a
mother of four children-was slain by a shotgun blast "for no
reason."
IN ADDITION, Weiner said the four robbers-their faces hid-
den by ski masks-went behind the counter and stomped on the
heads of persons they had ordered to the floor.
Police also said they believe a fifth person waited outside
the bank in a second getaway car.
In a related development, CBS television reported last night
that marked cash from the bank robbery was found in an apart-
ment occupied by Patricia Hearst and a radical comrade.
U. S. Atty. James Browning, asked about the report, said he
could neither confirm nor deny it.
Authorities say the apartment was rented by Steven Soliah, 27,
indicted yesterday on a charge of harboring a fugitive. Soliah's
fingerprints have linked him to a getaway car used in the rob-

CIA e

officials
By AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - A Senate
committee said yesterday the
CIA for nearly 20 years opened
and read the mail of well known
groups and individuals including
Richard Nixon, Martin Luther
King Jr., and one letter from
the committee chairman to his
mother-in-law.
Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho),
chairman of the Senate Select
Committee on Intelligence, said
evidence so far showed that
Nixon was not aware of the
practice when he was in the
White House.
"THE PRESIDENT did not
know that the mail was being
opened," Church said.
Church disclosed that in June
1968 the agency opened and read
a letter, which commented on
Nixon's prospects in that year's
presidential election, written by
Nixon speechwriter Raymond
Price while traveling in the So-
viet Union.
An aide subsequently ques-
tioned by reporters said at first
that Nixon mail had been
opened both before and during

A former medical student contesting his
1973 explusion is threatening to sock the
University with a $5 million law suit.
A decision by the medical school's execu-
tive committee., expected this afternoon,
on whether to readmit 28-year-old Charles

to pursue the suit.

IN MAY 1972 Stone was asked to take ar
leave of absence from the medical school-
11 days before he was to graduate.
He was readmitted in June 1973 but sub-

He has been fighting the decision ever
since.
University officials have refused to com-

SAN FRANCISCO-Twenty-four hours before
she allegedly fired a gun at President Ford, Sara
Jane Moore was continuing in her role as a
government informer.
Moore was doing two things at the same time-
hinting to police of plans to kill President Ford

later Sunday night.
A gun collector revealed yesterday that he
sold Moore a second-hand gun for $125 only three
and a half hours before she was alleged to have
fired at President Ford.
THE SALE was legal-a collector does not have
