tPhoto finish
UAC homecoming activities got off to a flying
start Monday with the cancellation of its photog-
raphy show because only one entry was submitted.
All of six more photos were entered yesterday, and
UAC spokesman Don Lovett said he could think
of no reason for the sparse student support. In
hopes of putting together an exhibition for alumni
by Friday, UAC has obtained some pictures from
the University's Photography Services.
A D.J.'s dilemma
A lot of people listen to WCBN-FM, but rarely
do they hear a show like the one at 7:30 Monday
night. Disc Jockey J. Franklin Jenkins (other-
wise known as D.J J.J.) was just getting into his
show when an old acquaintance barged into the
studio ifl the basement of the Student Activities
Building (SAB) demanding payment of a three-
year-old $20 debt. J.J. fended him off until he be-
gan to speak to the radio audience. The intruder
suddenly whipped out a metal pipe and bashed
our beloved D.J. across the head, leaving a gash
which required 25 stitches. Stunned, J.J. began
to swear and threw a chair at his attacker-
all for the benefit of WCBN's listeners. J.J. switch-
ed off the mike, and the intruder split after two
more whacks, saying "this is only the beginning."
J.J. says the guy's name is Larry, and as soon
as he remembers his last name, J.J. says he is
going to press charges.
Technological love
Michigan State's Student Government is spend-
ing $2000 to arrange dates between MSU students.
An advertisement in Monday's State News, the
MSU student newspaper, proclaimed Shower with
a friend . . . but bathe with your computer date.'
The advertisement included a photo of several stu-
dents clad in towels and grins. The student govern-
ment says their computer dating service project is
just for fun, and it helps build up the image of
student government. "It's a function of student
government to provide for students things they
might be interested in," said Barbara Paulus, stu-
dent government treasurer. "This is just another
area where we can do something for them."

Emperor's new clothes
It looks like President Ford's wild days are over,
says an eminent wardrobe designer, John Molloy.
He's forsaken wild ties for more conservative neck-

wear, and Molloy says he's doing it so he'll appear
to be more of a leader. "If you have a man who's
running for president, he must say 'I'm a leader,"'
Molloy explained. "One of the things Jerry Ford
has learned is how to dress like a president. When
he first not into office he said 'I'm good ole' Jer,
follow me to the golf course," Mollov admits
clothes don't make the man, but he insists that
thev do make a difference in how the man is ac-
cepted. Like the emperor and his new clothes .. .

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - A
U.S. Cutoms Bureau air and sea
operation"along the Mexican
border has netted $14,700,000
worth of marijuana, nine air-
planes, eight vehicles, one ship
and 38 arrests during a 30-day
period, the bureau said yester-
day.
Seizures during the period
ended on Monday includedr18
tons of Marijuana near Duran-
go, Mexico, by Mexican police
acting on a tip from U.S. Cus-
toms, and 660 pounds of mari-
juana aboard a 24-foot cabin
cruiser lying off San Diego.
CUSTOMS Bureau Commis-
sioner Vernon Acree said the
operation, in cooperation with
the Federal Drug Enforcement
Administration and radar units
from the Air Force and Federal
Aviation Administration, h a s
been far more successful than

with Mao
81-year-old leader
'frail but not infirm
By AP and Reuter
PEKING - Communist party Chairman Mao Tse-
tung summoned Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to
his home yesterday for a talk that was seen as a sign he
is pleased with Kissinger's visit to China.
The secretary spent one hour and 40 minutes with the
81-year-old Chinese leader, an usually long time for a
meeting with Mao. Before his talk with Kissinger, Mao
greeted other members of the American delegation and
Ms. Kissinger.
THE CHAIRMAN was described as frail, reflecting his nearly
82 years, but not infirm. The impression was that his mind is

made the trip to lay the groundwork for a visit to China by President Ford later this year.

DECISION TO BE APPEALED:

active and alert, with no indi-
cation of senility.
Both Chinese and American
spokespersons declined to give
details of the conversation. The
Chinese side said the two "had
a conversation in a friendly at-
mosphere" and covered "a
wide range of questions."
A Kissinger spokesperson said
only that "the secretary found
the meeting very useful."
THE SURPRISE invitation to
meet Mao came while Kissinger
was conferring with Deputy
Premier Teng Hsiao-Ping.
A major object of Kissnger
in three days of talks has been
to assure the Chinese that the
policy of detente with the Soviet
Union is not a move against
China and that the United States
has not been lulled into com-
placency by the Soviet Union.
Another key matter has been
to complete arrangements for
President Ford's journey to
China-late next month. The Chi-
nese statement issued after the
talk with Kissinger quoted Mao
as sending his regards to Ford,
an obvious sign that the trip is
on. and ending any anxiety on
that ooint.
S(URCES in the Kissinger
party said the dates for Ford's
visit here later this year have
been arranged and would be an-
noinced soon. The first trip to
China by a U.S. head of state
was by former President Nixon
in February of 1972.
The unusually lengthy meet-
ing with Mao may have resulted
because Premier Chou En-Lai
was too ill to see Kissinger:.
Chou has conferred with Kis-
singer on all the secretary's
seven previous visits.

economy
By MITCH DUNITZ
T w o University economists
say that New York City's de-
fault would have dire conse-
quences on both a domestic and
an international scale.
"As public confidence in mu-
nicipal government budgeting
decreases," claims Economics
professor Daniel Fusfeld, inter-
est rates on city bonds will in-
crease: This would force the
cities to cut down on their bor-
rowing and eventually lead to
layoffs."
LAST FRIDAY, New York
was saved from bankruptcy by
an eleventh hour $150 million
loan from its teacher's union.
The city has approximately six
weeks to find new revenue
sources or it will face default
again.
Paul Courant, also an eco-
nomics professor, thinks New
York's default would have grave
international implications as
well.

Plans to invite former South Vietnamese Premier Nguyen
Cao Ky and controversial geneticist William Shockley to campus
have been squelched by senior officers of the University Activities
Committee (UAC).
A UAC program, the "World Series," had hoped to sponsor
the two speakers as part of its first group of lectures, but the plan
was vetoed.
rHOWEVER, World Series chairman Norman LoPatin plans to
appeal the decision to the UAC Governance Board next Tuesday.
The board will make the final ruling.
Bill Powers, UAC president, vetoed the invitations.
"I don't believe they're even going to be able to speak on
campus," he says, fearing the speakers would be booed or shouted
down.
The World Series, new this year, is entirely separate from
Future Worlds, although UAC sponsors both.
FUTURE WORLDS invites "speakers that draw people but
don't get them incensed," Powers says. "We feel they (Future

Fiscal problems plague
GEO, dues hike asked

By JAMES NICOLL
The Graduate Employes' Or-
ganization (GEO) is suffering
from financial difficulties and is
considering affiliation with a
national union, GEO leaders
said at a sparsely attended
membership meeting last night.'
Because the organization is
presently heading into a con-
siderable deficit, GEO members
began voting last night on a

dues increase. About 80 people
cast secret ballots in an elec-
tion to continue today and to-
morrow.
TREASURER Art Schwartz
said that unless a dues increase
is approved, t h e University
could use the financial weakness
of the union to impose an un-
favorable contract. Without an
adequate strike fund or reserves
for legal proceedings, he claim-

Spain's Franco ill;
heart attack sparks
rumors of death
By AP and Reuter
MADRID, Spain (P) - Gen-
eralissimo Francisco Franco,
Spain's ruler since the country
<, <> >><s =<:: was torn by the 1936-39 civil
war, suffered "an acute coro-
nary crisis" yesterday, setting
off rumors that a transfer, of
power to Prince Juan Carlos
de Borbon was imminent.
A government announcement
said the 82-year-old leader was
recovering from a heart attack
but gave no details.
THE OFFICE of Premier
Carln Arias Navarro said re-

ed, the GEO would be at the
mercy of the administration.
Approval of the dues increase
would raise dues from $8 to $14
for thet fall term and $12 per
term thereafter for graduate
student assistants working one-
quarter time or more.
GEO members also discussed
affiliation with the American
Federation of State, County, and
Municipal Employes (AFSCME)
or the American Federation of
Teachers / Michigan Federation
of Teachers (AFT/MFT).
IT IS HOPED that either
AFSCME or AFT/MFT would
agree to assume some of the
union's debt in return for affili-
ation. The GEO is heavily in
debt because of last year's
month-long strike and subse-
quent arbitration cases.
GEO members at the meeting
clearly favored some sort of af-
filiation, but no consensus was
reached on which union was
acceptable.
An election will be held in
November to determine which
union the GEO will join.
THE DISCUSSION concerning
affiliation centered on two ma-
jor issues: autonomy of the lo-
cal union and finances.
