Naked came the swimmer
Margaret Bell Pool may have the best x-rated
swim show in town. During co-ed swim, the men
have been squeezing into very tight rented bathing
suits. The result? A lot of rips in the wrong places
on those unsexy, black nylon suits and a lot of
repair work for pool matron Gwen Carter. She
has posted the following letter at the pool: "Gen-
tlemen, Our bathing suits are not bikinis, so please
don't expect them to fit as such. Some men are
using suits that are too small and are ripping
them. Swallow your vanity, and take pity on me
as I have to repair them. Thanks." What's going
on between laps at the pool?.
Rosa Parks Blvd.?
You'd think Detroit would jump at the chance
to rename 12th Street after resident Rosa Parks,
proclaimed as the Mother of the Civil Rights Move-
ment. City Council received a petition last May
requesting the street be renamed Rosa Y. Parks
Boulevard, and so far it's still plain old 12th
Street. The hangup is a city rule which says only
the dead can be honored by a street name. Rosa
Parks was arrested and jailed in 1955 in Montgom-
ery, Ala., after she refused to give up her seat in
the white-only section of a city bus. The incident
touched off a boycott that resulted in national at-
tention for the civil rights movement and its lead-
er, Dr. Martin Luther King. This week, the Plan-
ning Commission submitted an entire new set of
rules for naming streets. Their proposal would
allow the use of names of the living.

Rich kid's monopoly
Want to play filthy rich oil baron? If you've got a
spare $195 or $790, you can play the latest takeoff
on Monopoly. It's called Petropolis, created by a
French baron for the rich, fashionable, famous, or
powerful. Instead of bidding for Monopoly real es-
tate the new game's players juggle miniature gold-
plated oil rigs around resort pools and debate
which petroleum rights to buy with their paper
jillions. If you think $790 is too steep, how about
a $20,000 set, with 18k gold rigs and derricks, soon
to be unveiled? The currency of Petropolis is the
petrodollar, bearing the motto "In 6il We Trust."
Saudi Arabia and Iran are the Boardwalk and
Park place of this high-priced game.
Save the acropolis
Pollution over the past 40 years has caused
greater damage to the ancient monuments on the
Acropolis hi than they suffered in the previous
four centuries. Experts from the United Nations
Educational, Social, and Cultural Organization pro-
posed an immediate start on protection of the 2500
year old marble temles and statuary. They said
the famed monuments overlooking the city of

Athens should be covered with plastic or nylon for
the winter. A UN report on the crisis said that if
protective measures were not taken before winter
"the monuments might be irretrievably damaged."
$2 bill comes back
Remember the $2 bill? The cash with the portrait
of Thomas Jefferson will probably be back in your
wallet in time for the Bicentennial. Rep. Benjamin
Rosenthal (D-N.Y.), said yesterday the Treasury
Dept. plans to issue 400 million $2 bills annually. It
would also cut in half the current production of 1.8
billions $1 hills. Because of Tublic disinterest the $2
bill was discontinued in 1966. Bring back the $2
bill, and -with current inflation the old $1 bill's
gonna look like small change.

FOR CHARLES Stone and his parents,
also of Flint, the past three years have
been a strange and embittering struggle.
Convinced that their son was wrongly
denied a medical degree in the last
weeks of his education by an impractical
and insincere bureaucracy, the elder
Stones have financed a legal battle
against the Medical School with their
income and savings.
Stone, now earning a masters degree
in microbiology at Michigan State Uni-
versity, says the Medical School's atti-
tude toward him is bewildering.
Stone explains, "I was sabotaged.
They tell me I did something wrong but
won't let me defend myself, defend what

I did. I wouldn't acknowledge that I was
sick and that they were helping me so
they called me paranoid. They say I'm
so paranoid I don'teven know they're
trying to help me."
CORRESPONDENCE regarding Stone
written by the Medical School faculty
between 1968 and 1973 indicates Stone
successfully completed his first three
years but apparently suffered a nervous
breakdown that impaired his perform-
ance on the general medicine rotation at
Ann Arbor's St. Joseph Mercy Hospital
in -late 1971.
The letters report that Stone's poor
performance led to exams by University
psychiatrists, at the Medical School
Promotion Board's suggestion. Those
exams revealed Stone apparently couldn't

Kissinger ignores subpoena

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger failed yesterday to respond
to a House Intelligence Committee sub-
poena for a memorandum by a State De-
partment official who has acknowledged
that it gives details about mismanagement
of the 1974 Cyprus crisis.
A. Searle Field, chief counsel for he com-
mittee, said a 10 a.m. EDT deadline for
Kissinger to respond passed yesterday with-
out receipt of the memorandum or any
word on whether the secretary intended to
comply with the subpoena later.
THE MEMORANDUM was written by
Thomas Boyatt, tlhe department's Cyprus

affairs director during the crisis. Boyatt
has acknowledged in testimony to the com-
mittee that it provides details about what
he considered mismanagement of the crisis.
During the crisis, Turkey invaded the
island of Cyprus with a force of more than
40,000 and occupied about 40 per cent of the
island. At the time, Turkish Cypriots com-
prised only about 20 per cent of the island's
population. The occupation continues today.
The memorandum goes to the heart of a
committee dispute with Kissinger over his
order prohibiting State Department opera-
tions officers from testifying on what rec-
ommendations they make for U.S. policy-

contrary to policy decisions or otherwise.
BOYATT told the committee he was pro-
hibited under Kissinger's order from testi-
fying on what his recommendations had
been during the crisis.
Kissinger and State Department officials
have said the order is needed to protect the
confidentiality in which operations officers
can make recommendations without fear of
public exposure if they're proven wrong.
One of Kissinger's top administrative
aides, Lawrence Eagleburger, who disclosed
the order, said it also is aimed at prevent-
ing a public debate between State Depart-
ment officials like the one over the so-called
"loss of China" in 1949.
WHEN BOYATT testified, he said he did
not know whether he could turn his mem-
orandum over to the committee. The com-
mittee was later told he could not.
It then voted 9 to 2 to subpoena the docu-
Chairman Otis Pike (D-N.Y.) was in his

about the subpoena.

"When Joan Little walked out of the courtroom a free woman,
that was supposed to be impossible; but as you look at me stand-
