Cost of education
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) is spon-
soring a package of six bills dealing with the State
Competitive Scholarship Program, tuition charges
and student loans in an effort to help students and
their families meet the rising prices of college edu-
cation. According to Bullard, the bill package was
designed to increase access to post-secondary edu-
cation and to assist the maximum number of stu-
dents at the lowest possible cost to the state. "These
reforms are necessary," Bullard said, "if we are
to remove barriers which arbitrarily deny eligibility
to needy groups of students."
Crash landing
Reversing its own decision, the state Court of Ap-
peals yesterday said a law requiring motorcyclists
to wear crash helmets is constitutional. The court
ruled in 1968 that the state's interest in highway
safety and the health of its citizens did not extend
to requiring motorcyclists and their riders to wear
crash helmets. But in a case involving an Adrian
motorcyclist arrested for not wearing a helmet,
the court said its earlier reasoning was incorrect.
Noting that courts in 29 states have held such laws
constitutional, the appeals court said it had pre-
viously failed to take into account the legislature's
right to exercise police power. "We are not per-
suaded that the 'right to be let alone' . . . or the
fact that the legislation tends to protect particular
individuals from their own folly, warrants the con-
clusion that the measure is not a valid exercise of
the police power," the court said.
On trial
The white bar owner on trial in Detroit for the
fatal shooting of a black youth that set off two
nights of violence last summer testified that he
never intended to kill the man and was scared
when he fired his gun. Andrew Chinarian, on trial
for second-degree murder, spoke calmly and un-
emotionally in a courtroom packed with relatives
and friends on Tuesday. "I was scared. I thought
he was gonna fire a shot at me," Chinarian testi-
fied. He said he was in the parking lot behind his
bar when he noticed someone with a coat hanger
breaking into a yellow Oldsmobile. After asking the
man what he was doing, Chinarian pulled a .25 cali-
ber revolver and told the youth not to move. The
youth subsequently began to run and Chinarian
fired, claiming that he intended to fire above the
youth's head.

At first, Ms. Fadwa Abdo thought it was one of
her customers engaged in an elaborate practical
joke. Abdo, 82-year-old owner of a grocery store
in Mankato, Minn., told police a man wearing a
ski mask over his face came into her store Mon-
day morning and pulled a gun on her. When she
realized the man meant business, she shouted to a
worker in the back to call the police. Instead, he
came up to the counter to see what was happen-
ing. Abdo snapped at the clerk, saying "you can't
do anything right." She then reached for the
phone to dial the police herself, even though she
didn't know the number. This display made a pret-
ty good impression on the robber, because he fled
.on foot without taking anything.

Kunstler 'not entirely upset'
by Kennedy assassinations

DALLAS (P)-John and Robert Kennedy
were two of the most dangerous men
America ever produced and "I'm not en-
tirely upset" by their assassination, says
lawyer William Kunstler.
"Although I couldn't pull the trigger
myself, I don't disagree with murder some-
times, especially political assassinations
which have been part of political life since
the beginning of recorded history," Kun-
stler told a news conference Tuesday.
"I'M NOT entirely upset by the Kennedy
assassination. In many ways two of the
most dangerous men in the country were
eliminated," he said. "It is hard to tell
what the glamor of Kennedy could have
done. Kennedy excited adulation. And adu-
lation is the first step toward dictatorship."
Asked by a reporter whether he felt his
remarks might cause others to attempt
killings, Kunstler replied: "No, deranged
people aren't made possible by my feelings

that . . . maybe we're better off without
the Kennedys than with them. Deranged
people are going to operate whether Wil-
liam Kunstler says one thing or another."
Kunstler, here to address a political
seminar at Southern Methodist University,
was the defense counsel for the Chicago
Seven group charged with disrupting the
1968 Democratic Convention. He also is
chief counsel for Symbionese Liberation
Army members Bill and Emily Harris.
KUNSTLER SAID he turned down offers
to handle the defense of Patricia Hearst
who went on trial Tuesday in San Francisco
oa bank robbery charges.
"I would never work for the Hearsts un-
der any circumstances because I won't
work for pigs," he said. "I only work for
people I respect and anyone in the ruling
class I don't respect. Patty Hearst will be
the ultimate victim. She was brainwashed

after she went to jail, not before."
Kunstler has consistently expressed a
belief in certain forms of political violence.
During a two-day visit to the University
last November, he said he would "pick
up a weapon and join in armed struggle"
if and when a revolution came to the
United States.
HE SAID. HE could not support the
admittedly terrorist tactics of some of
his clients, but added, "It depends upon
the situation. If a single act of terrorism
could have stopped a man like Hitler,
would you have used it? Of course you
would have."
In the late 1960's Kunstler drew sharp
criticism when he praised a black crowd
which beat a white policeman to death dur-
ing a 1967 disturbance in Plainfield, N.J.
The officer had shot and killed a black

-nt state emergency
ZAMBIA (Reuter) - Zambia's President Kenneth Kaunda,
whose landlocked African nation borders on warring Angola and
ar- troubled white-ruled Rhodesia, last night declared a state of
1o- emergency "to counter any moves to destroy our country."
In a television and radio address, the 51-year-old leader told
four million Zambians "to prepare for the worst," spoke of
foreign interference in the country and said: "We are at war.
Make no mistake."
SPEAKING AT a time when Zambia faces the worst economic
crisis in its history, the preacher's son who has ruled here for 11
years said evidence had been discovered of widespread internal
subversion by foreigners.
He also referred to "a plundering tiger with its deadly cubs
. now coming in through the back door"-an allusion, which
-xperienced observers here said referred to Soviet and Cuban
involvement in Angola, Zambia's northern neighbor.

abin tells Congress Israel will
negotiate, but not with PLO

By AP and Reuter
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
yesterday proposed the recon-
vening of the Geneva peace
conference as the next move
towards a Middle East peace
and said Israel was ready to
compromise im negotiations.
But Rabin ruled out negotiat-
ing with the Palestinian Libera-
tion Organization itself. The
PLO's charter calls for Israel's
destruction, he said, and "no
honest being can blame us for

refusing to cooperate in our
national suicide."
ONLY WHEN the Arab states
accept Israel "will the Pales-
tinian issue be constructively
and finally tackled," he said.
Rabin's speech to a joint
meeting of the House and Sen-
ate, paralleling an appearance
last Nov. 5 by Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat, was inter-
rupted only four times for ap-
plause. There were dozens of
empty seats in the section re-
served for House members.

His speech contained no radi-
cal departures from generally
known Israeli policy. But the
proposal for a new Geneva
Peace Conference was seen as
a firmer commitment than pre-
viously stated.
RABIN SAID the conference,
which was opened briefly in
December, 1973, should be re-
convened on the basis of the
two U. N. Security Council re-
solutions that called for Israeli
withdrawal from occupied ter-

ritories and guarantee Israel's
secure borders.
In his speech Rabin said the
core of the Arab-Israeli con-
flict is the refusal of the Arab
countries 'to reconcile them-
selves tonthe right of exist-
ence of one, small, viable, sov-
ereign Jewish state in the land
of our people's birth."
In order to achieve peace,
he said, "Israel is ready to
give up much and compromise
much on territory." Along these
lines, Rabin said, he is ready
to meet with any Arab head of
government at any time, at any
"WE, THE people of our re-
gion, are destined to live to-
gether for all time," he said.
"Never again shall there be a
Middle East without the state
of Israel."
Earlier, at the White House,
President Ford again sought to
prod Rabin toward additional
compromises with the Arabs. A
