Tiger trouble
The trouble all begn when a 10 foot tall, 22
pound tiger was set loose on William St. yester-
day afternoon. It seems "Tony", the fiberglass
tiger, was liberated from a Pennsylvania gas sta-
tion one night and stuffed inside the ,Arunk of a
car belonging to the Friends Road Show. The idea
was to stand big Tony in front of the Matrix thea-
tre as publicity for the Roadshow performance.
The tiger was surveying the scene innocently for
several hours until a couple of cops happened
along about 3:30 p.m. and decided to nail the
oversized pussycat for obstructing the street. They
ordered the Matrix Theatre to move the Tiger in-
side their building because they claimed "blind
people would run into it," Gene Hyman, Matrix
employe, said. "The tiger now stands in the door-
way as a receptionist," said Hyman. A Roadshow
performer explained, "Our tiger is part of our
political stand. You'll notice his arm up."
Today is the last day to get rid of those gruel-
ling 8 o'clocks and add that gut course you can
sleep right through. After today you can drop
classes with a W (withdrew) entered on your tran-
script. A counselor's approval is required to add
classes. And to avoid the "infinite incomplete,'
turn in those long overdue papers from last term
by 4:30 p.m., Feb. 3. Instructor approval is requir-
ed for extensions.

Pet rock craze
No one wanted a flat grey stone for a present
until former advertising copywriter Gary Dahl
packaged it in a small cardboard box and named
it a pet rock. Suddenly, pet rocks were the hottest
Christmas items around and Dahl became a mil-
lionaire in three months. And now the fad that
some people decried as a sad comment on Ameri-
can consumerism is showing signs of catching on
abroad. The rocks have already begun selling in
Canada, an Australian distributor has been signed
up, negotiations are in progress with England, and
a small training manual which accompanies each
pet rock has been translated intjo Japanese.
Transsexual school
The British, known for their reserve and disnity,
have opened a night school for transsexuals where
men who have changed their sex can learn to be-
have impeccably as women. In some cases the
training involves unlearning traditional male chiv-
alry. For example, former model Jill Lawson

teaches the men "not to open doors for and not to
light her cigaret." "I pay a lot of attention to
teaching them to walk like women and help them
learn to 'use make up and stop thinking as men,"
she said.
Chris and Jack
The latest couple in the limelight is tennis star
Chris Evert and President Ford's son, Jack. Right
after Chrissie picked up a $15,000 tournament
prize in Washington Sunday night, .young Jack
planted a kiss on the millionairess' cheek and then
took her out to an undisclosed highspot. Chris said
she plans to remain in the Capitol for a few more
days to be with the President's son, and the two
may. take in a White House State dinner this week.

House panel





WASHINGTON (IP)-Congress' ability to get and
keep unlimited secrets came under attack from
both the Ford administration and some congress-
men yesterday as details of the House Intelli-
gence Committee's final report became public.
The report says U.S. intelligence costs about
$10 billion a year and says some covert opera-
tions sometimes have been ordered by presidents
and their staffs over CIA and State Department
IT SAYS then-President Richard Nixon, for
example, 'directed the CIA to support Kurdish
rebels in Iraq over objections from the CIA, Sec-
retary of State -Henry Kissinger, and the State
The House committee set to work yesterday on
proposed recommendations including one to abol-
ish a major Pentagon intelligence agency and
another to create a permanent House intelli-
gence committee.

CIA costs run to $10 billion;
House intelligence unit urged

Central Intelligence Director William Colby
called a late afternoon news conference, reported-
ly to criticize public disclosure of secret opera-
tions in connection with release of the House
WITHOUT expressing criticism of Congress,
FBI Director Clarence Kelley told a Senate com-
mittee that increased Congressional supervision
cmild jeopardize his agency's investigative ability.
"The establishment of unlimited access of con-
gressmen to FBI secrets could seriously jeopar-
dize the flow of volunteer information, which is

the life blood of our investigative organization,"
Kelley said.
At the White House, Press Secretary Ron Nes-
sen said President Ford has not seen the final
report and Nessen declined to comment on it.
BUT, HE SAID "the premature release of the
preliminary' draft of the committee report is in
violation of the security agreement which the
White House understood it had with the com-
mittee for the handling of classified material."
"This unauthorized release r a i s e s serious
questions about how classified material can be

U. N.


handled by Congress when the national security
is at stake," Nessen said.
The bluntest attack came from senior Repub-
lican Robert McClory of Illinois as the House
committee took up a proposed recommendation
to create a permanent House committee to over-
see secret intelligence operations.
"I MUST confess that at this point I am not
confident a House committee could be trusted
with this information," McClory said.
Later McClory was joined by several other
House members in accusing the committee of
violating an agreement with Ford by including
secret information in its final public report.
But Rep. Les Aspin (D-Wis.), a committee
member, told the House the agreement giving
Ford final say on what secrets could; be released
never applied to what the committee could say
in its final report.

United S t a t e s last ,night
blocked with a veto the
adoption of a Security
Council resolution to af-
firm the Palestinians' right
to nationhood and call on
Israel to withdraw from all
Arab t e r r it o r y occupied
since the 1967 war.
It was the 13th Security
Council veto c a s t by the
United S t a t e s and the
fourth dealing with a Mid-
dle East issue.
THE UNITED States claimed
the resolution would undermine
Middle East peace negotiations.
Nine members voted for the
resolution, drawn up by a group
of small powers. Britain, Italy
a n d Swedenabstained, and
China and Libya declined to
participate in the vote.
Earlier the council rejected a
British amendment to the text,
the effect of which would have
been to reaffirm two resolutions
of the council, adopted in 1967
and 1973, w h i c h established
principles for a negotiated set-
ONLY FRANCE, Italy and
Sweden voted for the amend-
ment. The United States was
among nine members that ab-
U.S. Ambassador Daniel Moy-
nihan said the veto was not
cast lightly but "our respon-
sibility to seek further progress
toward an over-all peace settle-
ment in the Middle East re-
quired us, even if we stood
alone, to preserve the frame-
work for negotiations" estab-
lished by the 1967 and 1973 reso-
The balloting climaxed a two-
week debate that was boycotted
by Israel after the council in-
vited the Palestine Liberation
Organization to participate.
ISRAEL boycotted the debate,
in protest against the council's
decision to seat representatives
of the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization (PLO).
The council began the debate
two weeks ago, at the initiative
of Syria, which made a full-
scale review of the Middle East
question a condition of its assent
to a six-month extension of the
U.N. peacekeeping force in the
Golan Heights.

system, but nearly one third of

Superintendent Arthur Jeffer
son said first day attendance
was about 68 per cent, compared
to a normal attendance of about
80 per cent. Attendance in the
city's eight school regions rang-

to a high of 84.3 per cent.
JEFFERSON said some of the
absenteeism could be attributed
to foul weather, but added there
was not doubt that the "yellow
flu" was a factor, referring to
the yellow school buses used to
transport students.

might say I'm a fan."
