Bunch of baloney
It seems nearly everybody is eager to grab a
share of the publicity generated by today's Michi-
gan-OSU contest, ,and headline-hungry public of-
ficials are certainly no exception. State Rep.
Richael Conlin (R-Jackson) has a meaty bet going
with State Rep. Mike Oxley of Ohio. If the Big
Blue wins the game, Conlin becomes the proud
owner of an Ohio ham, compliments of Oxley.
However, if OSU is triumphant, Conlin is obligated
to fork over a 10 lb. bologna sausage. "At first
I didn't know what to offer as my part of the
wager," Conlin said. "But it finally dawned on
me that most Buckeyes are full of baloney anyway
-so why not stuff them a little bit more."

Tuition protest
Protesting an impending tuition hike, some 50
students yesterday disrupted a meeting of the
Michigan State University Board of Trustees.
Chanting "vote it down, do it right, tuition hikes,
we're going to fight, students protested a $1 per
credit hour tuition increase which the board later
approved. Because of the disruption, the trustees
adjourned into executive session. Predictably, MSU
President Clifton Wharton criticized the students'
action. "When you have tactics of this nature, it
makes it very difficult for the board to continue to
operate in a normal, orderly fashion," he said.

Sticky fingers
Despite protests from one regent that the pro-
gram was "going too far, too fast," the University
of Minnesota Board of Regents voted down 7-5 a
resolution that would have altered the thrust of a
human sexuality program which teaches doctors,
ministers and counselors how to help people with
their sexual problems. The program, which began
in 1971, employs sexually explicit films to foster
an uninhibited atmosphere in the sessions. Although
the Minnesota program has been hailed for its in-
novative quality, at least one regent fears it would
lead to moral corruption and rampant degenera-
tion. Regent Lloyd Petersen, seeking to "bring it
out in the open" commented, "And some of the
stuff expressed about masturbation, that we should
accept it, everybody should do it. I can visualize
high school seniors, uh, the rest rooms will be full
of this stuff going on." And who knows what's
next? Widespread insanity, hairy palms .

A woman columnist yesterday blasted bonnie
Prince Charles of GreatBritain for treating women
as if he is "an auctioneer looking over a blonde
or brunette head of cattle." Jean Rook of the
London Daily Express also chastized the Royal
Prince for becoming swelled of head. Charles
had no official comment on the broadside. Added
Rook, as a parting shot, "I hate to say this but
isn't Prince Charming losing some of his magic

. . . he can be a snappish, pompous little puppy,
if crossed." Well, off to the stockyards.

MADRID, Spain (P) - With Fascist
salutes, flowers ,tears and prayers, hun-
dreds of thousands of Spaniards, includ-
ing crippled war veterans, paid a wildly
emotional farewell to Gen. Francisco
Franco yesterday. Mourners paralyz-
ed the streets of Madrid in the biggest
outpouring in the capital in more than
a quarter-century.
An elderly woman said she walked for
four hours to see Franco's body "and I
would have walked for four more."
BUT AS Spaniards paid homage to
their fallen leader, who died Thursday at
the age of 82, Franco's handpicked heir,
Prince Juan Carlos de Borbon, faced
growing opposition from the left, the
right and dissident army officers who
called his succession to power "another
dictatorial act."
Franco lay in state in an open coffin,

Thousands

jam Madrid

his face ravaged by a five-week fight
against death. As night fell, the streets
of Madrid were jammed with lines of
mourners moving slowly and silently to-
ward the National Palace, traditional
residence of Spanish kings, to pay their
last homage to the man who ruled them
with an iron fist for 36 years.
There were scenes of wild emotion in
the palace's ornate Hall of Columns as
old and young bade farewell to the gen-
eralissimo with red roses, salutes and
prayers.
A CRIPPLED veteran of the Spanish
civil war, Franco's ladder to power in

1939, knelt before the coffin, tilted to
show Franco's face, and cried: "Adios,
my general. At your orders always, my
general." A middle-aged woman became
hysterical and was carried out of the
hall after calling out in tears: "God
bless you, great Spaniard, and goodby."
Spain's last homage to its authori-
tarian ruler, dressed in a captain gener-
al's uniform, began quietly at dawn as a
group of no more than 50 persons waited
outside the 18th century palace for the
gates to open. Within hours, however,
mourners were massing in thousands in
a five-mile procession through the
streets of the capital.

Government leaders and top political
and military figures mounted a 24-hour
vigil by the general's coffin, five on each
side in 20-minute shifts. Representa-
tives of the three forces, the armed po-
lice and the paramilitary Guardia Civil
kept watch behind. Overhead, a strong
light shone down on Franco's wasted
features.
Religious music boomed over loud-
speakers to the crowds outside, waiting
in the square where Franco made his
last vublic address Oct. 1, four days aft-
er the execution of five antigovernment
militants set Europe's face against
Spain.

refuse
student
member
By BILL TURQUE
The Board of Regents unani-
mously refused yesterday to en-
dorse student participation at all
levels of University policymak-
ing, or to create a non-voting.
student seat on the Board.
Regent Robert Nederlander
(D-Birmingham) read a resolu-
tion which said the Board was
unwilling to order the various
faculties in the University to in-
clude students in their decision
making process.
REGENT David Laro (R-Flint)
read a terse statement which
called the idea of a non-voting
student member for the Board
"inappropriate."
The defeated proposals origi-
nated from recommendations of
the Commission to Study Stu-
dent Governance (CSSG), set up
by Regental resolution two years
ago.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-De-
troit) said the Board's defeat of
the student participation recom-
mendation "does not change Re-
gental bylaws which explicitly
say that student participation in
decision making is important.
"BUT," HE added, "what we
are rejecting is change."3
After the meeting, Roach said
that problems posed by other
constiutencies demanding Re-
gental representation caused the
Board to reject the idea of a
non-voting student member, who
would serve at the pleasure of
the Board, similar to the execu-
tive officers. Roach said there
was also the matter of "account-
ability."

WASHINGTON - The re-
ported CIA p 1 o t s against
Cuban Prime Minister Fidel
Castro were only part of a
broad - based U.S. strategy
in the early 1960's to end or
weaken his control over the
island, according to a re-
port issued late Thursday
by a S e n a t e intelligence
committee.
Worried that Castro could
s p a r k Communist revolts
elsewhere in Latin America,
three U.S. administrations
resorted to economic, diplo-
matic and e v e n military
warfare against the Castro
regime.
THE MOST dramatic attempt
to oust Castro occurred in April
1961 when Cuban troops routed
a CIA-sponsored invasion force
of more than 1,000 at the Bay of
Pigs.
Many of the schemes bore the
stamp of fantasy. The CIA, ac-
cording to the report, dreamed
up plots to make his beard fall
out and destroybhis image, to
overthrow him by staging the
second coming of Christ, or kill
him with exploding seashells and
poisoned cigars.
There were U.S.-inspired plans
to organize anti-Castro cells in
Cuba. There were repeated in-
cidents of sabotage against
Cuba's sugar crop and factories
and landings by rebel groups on
Cuban shores. It is not clear,
however, how many of these in-
cidents were instigated by Wash-
ington or by Cuban exiles oper-
ating from the U.S. mainland.
THE SENATE committee re-
port said that in the fall of
1961, the CIA's then deputy di-
rector of plans, Richard Bis-
sell, was "chewed out" by both
President John Kennedy and
Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy for
"not doing anything about get-
ting rid of Castro and the Castro
regime."
Mindful of the plots against
him, Castro acquired the habit

in the early days of his regime
of sleeping at different locations
night after night.
Castro has claimed the CIA
was responsible for 24 attempts
on his life, 16 more than the
Senate committee found.
WHATEVER the figure, the
report suggested that Castro's
precautions were prudent. It in-
dicated that Castro could have
been courting disaster through
such simple acts as picking up
a pen, lighting a cigar, putting
on his shoes or having a bowl of
soup. The report said the CIA
tried, or at least thought about,
contaminating these objects with
poison.
Chairman Frank Church (D-
Idaho) of the Senate intelligence
committee said yesterday the
most important lesson in its re-
port on assassination plots is

that "we should never abandon
our principles and adopt the
principles of the Communists."
WHILE HE stopped short of
disagreeing that Presidents Eis-
enhower, Kennedy and Johnson
were more likely than not to
have known of this nation's in-,
volvement in assassination plots,
Church said there was too much
contradictory evidence to make
a finding.
He did say, however, that
President Ford should read the
committee report "very care-
fully as to what changes he
might make" in his administra-
tion. Church noted, for example,
that testimony by former CIA
Director Richard Helms con-
flicted with previous testimony
he had given to other commit-
tees of Congress.

Moynihan rumored
read to quit UN
WASHINGTON (RP) - Presi-
4 dent Ford summoned Ambas-
sador Daniel Moynihan to a
meeting here early next week
amid reports that Moynihan
was planningato quit his job at
:' .":},,.. n.> the United Nations.
"I am not leaving right
away," Moynihan told reporters
in a U. N. corridor after he
abruptly canceled a news con-
ference called earlier for "an
b s important announcement."
S< WHITE HOUSE officials said
Ford has "complete trust" in
the ambassador and that Moy-
nihan had not submitted his
resignation. Moynihan had
talked earlier with both Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger by
telephone and with an aide to
Ford.
"I very much want him to
stay," Kissinger told reporters.
"I consider him a good personal
friend."
