Coming down hard on sex
There once was a man from Ann Arbor.
Strange notions on sex he did harbor.
So he sought out some kink
And wound up in the klink
Where his fancy's pursued even harder.
Although this limerick is only fiction (at least as
far as we know), it could be fact in our fair state.
Our lasciviousless legislators have seen to it that
Michigan has among the most stringent sex penal-
ties in the country. Fornication (illicit sexual inter-
course on the part of an unmarried person-our
official Webster definition) can draw you a neat
five years in the slammer, or a $2,500 fine. And
sodomists and adulterers beware. You could spend
up to four years behind bars (and we don't mean
the Del Rio), or make your bank account $2,000
lighter. Ah, Michigan-love it or leave it. But if
you stay, remember to keep it clean.
Happenings . .
. . . are dominated by evening activity today,
but at 3:00 this afternoon Carmel Budiardjo will
speak about the political situation in Indonesia in
Lane Hall's Common Room . . . at 7:00 the
Steward Council of Trony Tenants will meet in
the Union's Anderson Room . . . at 7:30 p.m., Jim
Robins and Bob Hoot will read their poetry in the
Guild House, 802 Monroe . . . the International
Center, in the Union, is sponsoring a program
about socialist China at 7:30, featuring communist
party members . . . also at 7:30, Men's Raps will
hold a final session in East Quad, Tyler House,
Room 26. They plan to show a movie titled "Tell
Me Where It Hurts" . . . at 8:00 you could go in
five different directions at once, including a multi-
dance concert in Schorling Auditorium. The $1.50
admission charge entitles you to see the Dance and
Music Departments' performance in the Education
Building .
Keeping it up
Sperm banks are an insult to some, at least
according to advocates of MS (Male Supremacy,
that is). Approximately 30 people demonstrated
outside the Massachusetts General Hospital sperm
bank calling for 'male supremacy' and the elimi-
nation of depositories. What did they object to?
Well, the group of radical women who want to
control everything and eliminate men, of course.
Or at least that's what Dick Miano, the group's
organizer said. And what do sperm banks have
to do with the domination of female radicals? If
they had control of the sperm banks they could
take over the country and do away with men al-
together, claimed Miano. But others in his group
had other grievances. "I don't want a test tube, I
want a husband," said divorcee Lee Antinarelli.
"A lot of women today aren't willing to take care
of their men," she added vehemently. "I don't
mind women having jobs, but, we men should have
the final say," declared Charlie Perotta-who is
in the process of getting a divorce. One can only
wonder why.
Don't learn it, live it
Nothing like learning from experience-at least
that's what State Corrections officials in Cam-
bridge, Mass., thought. They installed 32 correction
guard trainees in the slammer just so they could
see what it was like. The students began an eight
week course at the state corrections training school,
and according to County Sheriff John Buckley, a
three-day stint in jail was part of the program.
"By the time they were out, they realized how
much power an officer has," said Buckley. The
students were forced to live the life of an inmate:
eat prison food, suffer 'shake-downs' and a few
even spent time in isolation for swearing at the
guards. "This really brings home the message of
empathy with the inmates behind the bars," Buck-
ley commented. Indeed it did. One trainee "flipped
out," Buckley added, "he couldn't take it."
A bizarre hang-up
Want to feel educated and express your freedom
of speech? Well, the Fathers United For Equal
Rights believe they have "the way:" hang some-
one in effigy. In fact, the Fathers (known to some
as the Motherfathers) feel so strongly about their
swinging suggestion that they are asking the U.S.
District Court in Baltimore to regard it as a con-
stitutional right. The group's leader, John "Dang-
ling" Davis told the court, "Hanging in effigy is
an ancient and revered custom of those aggrieved
and is a common, practical and educational means
in the peaceful exercise of free speech." The group
is apparently strung out over police interference

in their latest simulated lynching of a Montgomery
County judge who rejected their request for equal
treatment with their spouses in divorce cases.
Hang in there, Fathers.

Terrorists still hold
72 on Dutcli train
By AP and Reuter
PARIS-Police last night shot dead one gunman and
seriously injured another who fled from a Paris bank
with two hostages after a day-long siege.
The two hostages - both women - were unhurt,
police said. Twenty-eight other hostages escaped un-
harmed after the incident.
MEANWHILE, in Beilen, The Netherlands, thirteen of the
estimated 72 hostages held by Indonesian gunmen aboard a Dutch
train sprinted to safety under the cover of darkness last night, a
Justice Ministry official there said.
He reported the group broke from the rear coach of the
stranded train, evidently unguarded at the time, and ran 650
yards to police lines.
First reports in Paris said police had shot dead three gang-
sters who had held 30 hostages in the bank since yesterday morn-
ing after an abortive raid. But police later confirmed that only two
men were involved in the holdup.
THE SHOOT-OUT just off the fashionable Champs Elysees
came only minutes after the gunmen roared away from the Credit
Lyonnais Bank in the Avenue Bosquet across the river on the
Left Bank.
Police caught up with the gangsters after their car crashed
into another car at a crossroads.
One of the gangsters leaped out of the getaway car and headed
toward a taxi that had stopped near the accident, eyewitnesses
THE T 1XT was caught in crossfire between the gunmen and
police sharpshooters but its occupants escaped injury, the eye-
witnesses said.
Insuector Bernard Roland told reporters that the driver of
the getaway cir had jmirnred out after the crash and started to

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
The State Department yesterday
condemned the Israeli air raid
at Palestinian camps in Leb-
anon as part of a cycle of vio-1
lence not conducive to peace in
the Middle East.
"We have previously deplored
the cycle of violence and coun-
terviolence in the Middle East,
which takes innocent victims on
both sides and creates a climate 1
of bitterness not conducive to I
peace," Department Spokesman
John Trattner said.
HE SAID the U.S. government{

air raid criticized

was still trying to get all the
facts regarding Tuesday's raids,
which the Israelis said were
directed at the main training
bases for Palestinian guerrillas.
He said the United States was
in touch with the Israeli and
Lebanese governments, b u t
would express any further views
at the United Nations, where the
Arabs have called an emer-
gency meeting of the Security
Foreign Minister Ismail Fah-
mi called for an immediate
meeting of the U.N. Security
Council to adopt "firm and de-

terrent measures against the
barbaric Israeli aggression."
THE FOREIGN minister said
he held the Israeli government
fully responsible far the con-
sequences of Tuesday's shrikes
a g a i n s t Palestinian targets,
which, according to official
sources in Beirut, left 90 dead
and more than 100 wounded.
Well informed sources said
Egypt was outraged by the
heavy death toll and believed
the bombings seriously under-
mined the peace momentum in
the Middle East.

Ford's plan to aid New York
survives first bout in Senate

"Egypt holds Israel eston-
sible for any deterioration in
the Middle East situation and
considers the aggression a viola-
tion in spirit of the disengage-
ment agreements on both the
Syrian and Egyptian front3,"
Fahmi said.
U.S. OFFICIALS said there
had recently been two terrorist
attacks against Israel, oac in
Jerusalem and the other on the
Golan Heights, noting that Tues-
day's raids were against bases
from which Israelis said the
attacks were launched.
Asked whether the Israeli
strikes violated the interim Sinai
agreement concluded earlier
this year with Egypt, the sno~es-
man said the United States had
been in contact with the govern-
ments concerned-including pre-
sumably, the Egyptian-but of-
fered no indication of the U.S.
Trattner declined to comment
directly on Israeli government
plans to build new settlements
on the Golan Heights separating
Israel from Syria.
"WE HAVE been in touch with
the Israelis on achieving a
whole (Middle East) settlement,
so for the present I would rather
not say anything," he added.
The spokesman said the Unit-
ed States had not yet received
a reply from the Soviet Union
to a U.S. proposal on Monday
that they convene a preparatory

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - President Ford's
program to aid New York City in its fiscal crisis
survived its first test in the Senate yesterday.
But its supporters still face a difficult time
in getting final passage before the city runs out
of money December 11.
THE SENATE took up the bill after it was
narrowly approved in the House Tuesday night.
But opponents, led by Sen. James Allen (D-Ala.),
said they would filibuster the bill.
Shortly after the Senate began debate, Sen.
Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) tried to have the bill sent
to the Senate banking committee-a move which
would have effectively killed the measure. But
his motion was defeated 57-23.
Under the bill. proposed by Ford last Wednes-
day after the New York legislature had put

together a 600 million dollar package that includes
higher income and sales taxes, the city could re-
ceive up to 2.3 billion dollars a year in federal
loans in each of the next three years. The loans
must be repaid with interest each year.
SENATEtRules allow any member to speak on
any measure for as long as he wants, thus delay-
ing it by extended, time-consuming debate. Such a
move can only be limited if at least 60 senators
approve a cloture petition.
Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-
Mont.) introduced such a petition yesterday, but
a vote cannot be taken until tomorrow since the
rules sate here can be no cloture attempt until
48 hours after debate starts.

This determined cat, named Mohawk, was found yesterday in
a city park in Fort Wayne, Ind., with its eye shot out. Em-

Marijuana busts up

tni -, says FJ
Recently - released figures from the FBI indicate that mari-
juana arrests increased nationally from 420,000 in 1973 to 445,600
in 1974 - comprising nearly 70 per cent of all drug-related arrests.
While the amount of national arrests increased by about 5
per cent, the rate in the city inflated at a much greater rate -
from 266 to 369 during the same period, or about 28 per cent.
IN CONTRAST to the substantial rise in marijuana arrests in
the city from 1973 to 1974, arrests related to narcotics dropped over
the same period. Arrests for sale of narcotics dropped from 9 to
1, and from 84 to 79 for possession.
According to Sgt. Harold Tinsev of the city police department,
"the biggest reason for the rise in marijuana usage can be at-
trib'ited to the passage of the $5 fine law for nossession of mari-
juana. Peonln who might otherwise hesitate are smoking because
the ronseonencns for Betting cnnght are no longer as great."
The sit'iation in Ann Arbor noints to the conclusion thnt de-
crimni-ali-tion lends to increased usage. However. according to
