Passing of a tradition
Jerry Poquette, the man who was as much
a University tradition as graduation and foot-
ball games, died last week. Poquette was better
known as the Good Humor man, who for 13 years
refreshed students in . front of the LSA build-
ing.hHedwas living in Menominee, at the time
of his death.
Hang -en high
U.S. Rep. Marvin Esch, (R-Ann Arbor), has
introduced legislation which would impose the
death penalty on persons convicted of a bomb-
ing which results in death. Esch points to the
recent La Guardia Airport disaster, which killed
eleven people, as the reason for the bill. "Ran-
dom violence which kills innocent bystanders sim-
ply cannot be tolerated in a civilized society,"
he said. Esch remains opposed to the death pen-
alty on a broad basis but feels that terrorist
attacks are one case where it could serve as a

Bergman hospitalized
Internationally renowned film director Ingmar
Bergman has been admitted to Caroline Hospital
in Stockholm, Sweden, following a nervous break-
down, according to the Royal Dramatic Theater
,group. Friends say the breakdown was due to
pending charges of tax fraud against him. Prose-
cuting Attorney Curt Dreifaldt said legal proceed-
ings will be brought against Bergman in the next
few days. Officials said he is suspected of evading
payment of approximately $113,000 in 1971 income
taxes by channeling money into a Swiss company
he owned. But Bergman, who directed such films
as "The Seventh Seal", "Wild Strawberries" and
"Persona", claims that he has done nothing illegal.
"I'm an artist, not a business," he said last week-
end. "My lawyer had taken care of my tax re-
turns. I don't care about money. I'm satisfied as
long as I have enough for my living expenses."
Potent drink

Over 2,000 years ago Socrates was condemned
to death for corrupting the young men of Athens
with his teachings. Execution was carried out with
the famous cup of hemlock the great philosopher
was forced to drink. Now an American archeolo-
gist says he has identified the prison building
where the execution took place. Eugene Vander-
pool, a retired professor of archeology at Athen's
American School of Classical Studies said "The
philosopher was fettered, but his friends were
allowed to come and go. He was certainly a very
special prisoner and his wealthy friends were
probably able to obtain certain amenities for
him." One room in the building which Vander-
pool believes was Socrates' cell is equipped with
a basin sink as well as vessels thought to be
used to contain hemlock.

2,000 people were killed yester-
day in Guatemala by a savage
earthquake that rumbled across
a 2,000 mile stretch of Central
America and Mexico, the mili-
tary chief of the National Emer-
gency Committee said.
There were no reports of
heavy casualties in neighboring
countries hit by the earthquake,
which struck earlyyesterday
morning. But severe damage
and panic were reported in
Honduras. Officials in El Sal-
vador reported some roads and
highways were out, and minor
damage was reported in south-
ern Mexico.

GUATEMALAN President Kjell
Eugenio Laugerud 'announced
official confirmation of 800 dead
and 3,000 injured Wednesday
night but predicted the figures
would climb as reports arrived
from isolated areas.
Col. Manuel Angel Ponce, the
emergency committee's chief
of staff, said his figure of 2,000
killed was "conservative," add-
ing that "alarming reports"
were coming in from the inter-
ior of the country.
In the capital, a broadcast
said: "The morgue is full.
Please don't bring any more
bodies to the morgue."

President Laugerud said help
was pouring in from Honduras,
El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa
Rica and Mexico. Efforts were
also under way in the United
States to provide relief.
HE SAID 470 persons includ-
ing the state governor were re-
ported killed in El Progreso, a
city in eastern Guatemala.
Ponce said the death toll in
Guatemala City was estimated
at more than 300. Unconfirmed

reports said it might reach 500
to 600.
Ponce said the committee had
reports of 175 persons dead in
the town of Patzitzia, about 50
miles west of Guatemala City.
ADOBE homes and walls in

Hundreds of thousands in" this

Barbara Buck of Lawrence,

an 11th floor room of the Ca-

she said. "I was in bed and this
horrible sound started."
Lawrence, Kan., said: "I was

that perhaus now the divisive-
ness which has characterized
the union might be overcome
and work begun on preparing
for uncoming contract talks
with the University.
Some Problems were left un-
settled, however. A vote to sen-
arate the consideration of the
election of executive officers
from that of bargaining team
members was called unconsti-
tiltional by Carolyn Forrest,
UAW regional representative.
The disnute over the bargaining
team may go to the UAW inter-

Mandatory payment
stirs heated debate.
The Board of Regents yesterday unanimously ap-
proved room and board increases for University hous-
ing, averaging 8.9 per cent. The hikes will take effect
next fall.
This means that students will be shelling out over
$100 more next term for a double room in a dormitory.
The cost of a single room will go from $1565 to $1753.
THE BOARD yesterday also decided to retain, after
heated discussion, the present funding system for the
Public Interest Research Group in Michigan (PItGIM).
The vote was 5-3.
Housing Director John Feld- - - --
kamp said the dorm rate hike
can be attributed to inflationary
pressures. He said it was also
niecessitated by a $400,000 defi-
cit in General Fund monies,
which had been reallocated due- k
to University-wide belt-tighten-
ing measures.

Fleming said. Indications from
the Governor's office are that
the University will receive no
"new dollars" for fiscal 1976-77.

the highest in the last 10 years,

'point out that inflation has been
even more formidable.

Coleman okays limited
service for Concorde

WASHINGTON ()P) - Secretary of Transporta-
tion William Coleman authorized two foreign air-
lines yesterday to offer limited scheduled flights
of the fast but noisy Concorde supersonic passen-
ger jet into two U. S. airports for 16 months.
The order issued yesterday is effective March
4, but the trial period will not start until the first
scheduled flight is made. Air France said one
flight a day to Washington could begin as early
as March 4.
THE CONCORDE is a stork-nosed aircraft that
can fly up to speeds of 1,400 miles per hour ';
faster than most bullets. The aircraft is manufac-
tured by the British and French under a joint ar-
Coleman's order was challenged in court within

nedy International Airport in New York.
British Airways announced it will apply im-
mediately for permits to land the Concorde in
New York and Washington and hoped to begin
service "in early summer."
It said its fare will be $1,168 round trip New
York and $1,240 Washington - 17 per cent above
current first class fares. Air France did not set
a rate.
Inc., oromr"-v petitioned the U. S. Court of Ap-
peals for a review of the decision.
Another hearing in U. S. District Court is
scheduled for Feb. 20.
Most opposition to the Concorde was centered
on the noise thetplane makes during takeoff and
