Who knows what evil . .
Mysterious strangers have been making short
appearances in several of the Hill dorms. In the
past two weeks there have been two streaking in-
cidents in Stockwell as well as Peeping Toms get-
ting their jollies watching the women in Alice
Lloyd, Mosher-Jordan and Stockwell. Security in
the dorms has been increased, but officials lack
a good description of the intruder. Resident Direc-
tor Gloria Jeff reports "It's weird, we know it's
a white male, but no one will look at him."

When four British mechanics arrived in North
Baltimore, Ohio, the small town's ladies went
wild. According to the men, some women factory
workers lined up to buy them food and drinks.
Some even pursued them to their motel - all
because the women were fascinated by the
mechanics' English accents. "All that most of the
girls wanted was to hear us talk," reported An-
thony Tew. "They reckoned our English accents
were cute. I tell you," he added, "anyone who goes
there with a British accent has got it made."
The great escape
A Texas man wanted for growing marijuana, in
violation of his parole, barricaded himself on an
island surrounded by an alligator-filled moat be-
fore surrendering to police Friday. Warren Lynch,
armed with a shotgun, spent most of Thursday
night and Friday morning on the reptile-surround-
ed island which he runs as a tourist attraction.
Officers waiting for Lynch to come to terms sat
on the shore drinking coffee and eating sand-
wiches as cold weather moved in. Asked why he
didn't rush the island, Sheriff Bob Hewes said,
"I think if a man could wade across there with-
out splashing he'd Te airight. But if you make
any noise, well . ..

officials there is no law in the books authorizing
parking meters. The city says it will take about
30 days to get a new law, costing $3,000 in lost
revenue. Voters originally approved the meters in
1942, but when the city ordinances were recodified
in 1961, the parking meter law was overlooked. Who
says you can't fight city hall?
Presidential hopeful Ronald Reagan is now elig-
ible for Social Security payments - but the for-
mer California governor says he's not going to
accept them. Campaigning on his 65th birthday,
Reagan said he's not going to apply for the bene-
fits and that he doesn't even know how much he
would have coming. It turns out that the movie
star-turned politician would be eligible for full So-
cial Security - as long as his normal income does
not exceed $2,760 a year. The post Reagan's gun-
ning for is worth $200,000 annually.
Father, forgive me
Three French journalists have been excommuni-
cated for making phony confessions of sexual sins
to determine whether Catholic confessors really
went along with a recent Vatican document con-
demning homosexuality, masturbation and extra-
marital sex as serious sins. Vatican officials point
out that the journalists brought automatic excom-
munication on themselves for "committing con-
tempt of the sacrament of confession." The excom-
munication can be lifted if a genuine confession is
On the inside .. .
From Wire Service Reports
PEKING - lin a surprise appointment, Hua Kuo-feng, a pro-
tege of Communist Party Chairman Mao Tse-tung, has been chos-
en acting successor to the late Premier Chou En-lai.
Hua's appointment was disclosed last night by the New
China News Agency in a routine dispatch from Peking that aston-
ished China watchers.
IN THE PAST, most acting appointments have become perm-
anent, but diplomatic analysts cautioned that Hua may be an in-
terim choice for the powerful post.
Other officials in Washington said the move reflected deep
divisions within the Chinese hierarchy, but that changes in China's
foreign policy and its attitude toward the United States were not
After Chou died of cancer last month, most China watchers
predicted that Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping would take over as
head of the Chinese government. Teng had performed most of the
premier's duties since Chou was hospitalized in 1974.
HUA, WHO IS in his mid-50's, has not been openly identified
with either radicals or moderates in the leadership, unlike Teng.
The ninth-ranking vice-premier, he was recognized as one of
the fastest-rising politicians in the Communist hierarchy.
They linked the surprise development with an extraordinary
attack in the People's Daily newspaper yesterday on "capitalist
roaders" and rightist deviationists in positions of power
SOME SAW this as criticism of Teng-who was branded a
capitalist "roader" during the 1960s cultural revolution, so the
naming of Hua cauld mean that Teng is in a political dogfight
with the radical Chinese left. A more extreme interpretation is
that Teng has come to the end of his political rope and is once
more a victim of his Coltural Revolution foes. A third possibility
is that age and illness have taken their toll and that Teng has
decided to bow out of the premiership race voluntarily.
Hua received praise during the Cultural Revolution for his
ability to organize great masses of people. Later he made
a reputation for himself through his deft handling of the Lin
Piao incident in 1971.
Lin, defense minister and China's heir apparent, died in a
plane crash following an abortive coup attempt. Although the
role he played is still unclear, Hua is considered one of the few
who know all the details of the affair.
HE ALSO IS said to be one of China's top agricultural ex-
perts, credited with conducting successful water conservation and
irrigation projects in 1966 as head of the Shaoshan irrigation dis-
trict command in Hunan province.
Haa's early background is unknown here.
From 1958 to 1967 he served as vice governor of Hunan pro-
vince and as alternate secretary of the Communist party's Hunan

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala - Foreign disaster experts

HEALTH EXPERTS expressed fear that epidemics could cause
more deaths because many dead were being buried in shallow
graves, people were drinking untreated water and no sanitary

MICHIGAN'S SPEEDY RICKEY GREEN chases after a loose ball with

special To The Daily
BLOOMINGTON-After Indiana's Kent Benson
tipped in a missed shot at the buzzer to send the
game into overtime, the number - one ranked
Hoosiers scored the last eight points in the extra
period to beat Michigan 72-67 yesterday.
With Michigan ahead 60-58 and 14 seconds re-
maining, the Wolverines' Steve Grote missed a
free throw and All-American Scott May controlled
the rebound for Indiana.
INDIANA CALLED time out to set up a final
play with ten seconds remaining. With five sec-
onds left, Quinn Buckner launched a high arching
shot from 18 feet out that bounced high off the
rim. The ball headed out of bounds and Hoosier
Jim Crews grabbed it, and tossed up an off-
balance shot towards the basket, which the 6-10
Benson tipped in as regulation time ran out.
"Crews got the ball and threw it up to keep it
alive," said Indiana coach Bobby Knight. "He
made a very intelligent play."
According to NCAA rules, there is a difference
between a tip and a shot. A tip must be in the
basket when the buzzer sounds for it to be count-
ed, while a shot need only be in the air when
time runs out. The referees ruled that Benson
had control of the tip and thus, technically, it
was considered a shot.
"THAT TIP WAS a judgment thing," said
Michigan coach Johnny Orr. "At Illinois, the
reeferee said there was no control of the tip.
We lost the game. Today they went and tipped
it in, and the ref said he had control of the tip.
At Illinois they said he had to catch it, then shoot
it. And the situation in the Illinois game looked
identical to me."
The television replay indicated that Michigan's
Phil Hubbard had a hand on the final tip.
Michigan scored the first four points of the
five-minute overtime to take a 64-60 lead, on
two free throws by John Robinson and a basket
by Grote. Grote was called for charging on the
play, his fifth foul, and May's foul shots brought
Indiana back to within two, 64-62.
INDIANA REGAINED possession after Robin-
son missed from underneath. Phil Hubbard then
picked up his fifth foul, sending Indiana's Wayne
Radford to the line to shoot one-and-one. Radford
collected on both ends to tie the game 64-64, with
