Local students and members of the community
have organized a group to solicit aid for earth-
quake-devastated Guatemala, where tens of thou-
sands of men, women and children have been
injured and left homeless. The group needs your
help, and suggests that you contribute directly
to the Washtenaw County chapter of the Ameri-
can - Red Cross at 2729 Packard Rd. If you'd like
to help out even more, contact Luis Argueta at
Along with the confusion of Wednesday night's
housing lottery, we passed on some incorrect
information. We reported that Vince Bryson was
drawing names at Mosher-Jorden, actually it was
Kevan Woodson, Bryson is no longer at the Uni-
versity, and is currently residing in Detroit.

Greetings and solicitations
Steward Udall, the brother of presidential can-
didate Morris Udall, was kicked out of a New
Hampshire restaurant in downtown Concord be-
cause he was soliciting votes. When Udall pro-
tested the move a waitress told him "We can't
have it. It scares the customers."
An eye for an eye
Albert Mokry's left eyeball rolled down a drain
and he is suing the University of Texas Health
Services Center for its loss, mental anguish and
nervousness he has suffered since. The eye was
removed by a surgeon three years ago and was
sent to the center for tests to determine if it
was cancerous. The lab technicians doing the
tests let the contier tip over, and the eye
rolled down the drain. A Dallas trial court ruled'
Mokry could not recover damages since he was
not harmed physically, however, the decision
was reversed last October by a higher court.
The Texas Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that
Morky could sue the center for damages.
Flying to Europe at supersonic speeds aboard
the Anglo-French Concorde will run you about
$700, but you can board the American SST for just
$2. The catch is that the U. S. plane doesn't go
anywhere. A red, white, and blue bockup of the
now boneyarded American SST draws about 90,-
000 visitors each year to a roadside museum in
the central Florida town of Kissimmee (that's
right, Kissimmee). The mockup, built by Boeing,
was purchased by a Nesbraska promoter who paid
about $30,000 for it at a Federal Aviation Admin-
istration (FAA) auction in 1972. He shipped is to
Florida on nine train cars and set up the museum,
which is en route to and from Disney World and
the Kennedy Space Center. Lockheed built a simi-
lar mockup that the FAA used for passenger evac-
uation tests, but it is no longer available for view-
ing. "It was parked outside and the weather got
to it," said an FAA spokesperson. "Finally it was
just trucked away to the graveyard."
Newport nudes
A Justice of the Peace who presided over a nude
wedding in Newport, Ky. may soon find himself
stripped . . . of his authority. Last week Earl

Leonard married a stripper and her boyfriend in
a ceremony conducted in the buff. Leonard says
"it didn't make aiy difference" to him. "It's my
job to marry pe<cple," he added. A county judge
is seeking to revoke Leonard's authority saying
the ceremony was "demeaning the solemn rite
of marriage."

Committee memiber says.
affirmative action in doubt
University Vice President for Academic Affairs Frank
Rhodes announced yesterday that acting LSA Dean Billy
Frye has been appointed dean of that college for a five-
year term.
The announcement, which culminated two years of
a controversial search for a candidate to fill the dean-
ship position vacated by Rhodes in 1974, was made by
the vice president at a special meeting of the University
faculty yesterday afternoon.
THE CHOICE of Frye as dean has already been labeled by
some as a move- to "maintain the status quo, in the college........ ;c}:::
of LSA. At least one member of the deanship search committee
has also questioned whether the affirmative action guidelines
established last year by the University administration for filling Frye

day as she heard once again
the voice of her chief captor

Hearst's tears began to stream
down the side of her face as she
joined her jurors in listening to
a tape recording of Donald
"Cinque" DeDFreeze pronounc-

of the Symbionese Liberation
The 21-year-old heiress snif-
fled, then took out a handker-
chief and wiped her cheek as
the taped "communique" in
which she said she willingly
joined DeFreeze and others in
a 1974 bank robbery was played
for the jury.
U.S. ATTY. James Browning
said he planned to rest the gov-
ernment's case this morning.
Attorney F. Lee Bailey said he
would begin the defense with
testimony from yet another fig-
ure from Hearst's past, her for-
mer fiance Steven Weed.
After wiping away her tears,
Hearst listened calmly as her
own voice resounded from a1
speaker. There was no show of
emotion as she and her jury
heard the revolutionary "Tania"
proclaim herself a willing andl
defiant bank robber.


The jurors, who had been
given written transcripts of the
tape, kept their eyes on the
pieces of paper as they heard
Hearst revile her parents and
call Weed "a sexist, ageist pig."
THEY THEN listened atten-
tively as an FBI agent described
the moments that brought her
strange and violent journey to
an end.
"FBI-freeze!" agent Thomas
Padden said he shouted as he
broke in on Hearst and room-
mate Wendy Yoshimura as they
sat at a kitchen table in a San
Francisco hideout last Sept. 18.
". . .But they kept moving,"
Padden testified. "I said
'Freeze!' again . . . The Orien-
tal female stopped. But Hearst
kept moving.
"I TOLD her to freeze, or
I'll blow Yoshimura's head off,"
the agent recalled.
"Would you have in fact
blow the Oriental female's head
off," asked Browning.
"No," said Padden, adding
that when he made the threat
to Hearst, "she stopped mov-

January to ten names. Follow-

ten candidates, the search com-

WASHINGTON (M)-President
Ford offered House Speaker
Carl Albert "all services and
resources of the executive
branch" yesterday to find out
who leaked segments of the
Select House Intelligence Com-
mittee's report.
m Asked whether the offer in-
cluded use of .FBI and Internal
Revenue Service agents, White
House Press Secretary Ron Nes-
sen told newsmen: "You need to
go ask Carl Albert." Nessen
said Albert had not asked for
any help and Albert decided-
late in the day to make no com-
AN AIDE said Albert could

"decided that if the President
is serious about it he'll (Ford)
probably follow up personally."
Albert instead announced he
has decided to allow all 433
House members to read the still-
classified report. He said they
will have to go to any one of
five committees to read it and
will be prohibited frocm pub-
licly disclosing any of it.
The Village Voice, a weekly
newspaper in New York City,
published 24 pages of long ex-
cerpts from the report,, and the
New York Times and CBS Cor-
respondent Daniel Schorr had
detailed reports clearly based
on a reading of drafts.
OTHER news organizations in-
cluding The Associated Press

The final report of the com-
mittee headed by Chairmarj Otis
Pike (D-N.Y.) accused Kissin-

release the report.

TOKYO (P)--China yesterday reported "face-to-
face struggles against Soviet armed intruders" in
China's rugged northwest frontier but gave no
details on these developments in the long and
sometimes bloody dispute over the 5,000-mile
Chinese-Soviet border.
There was no immediate comment from the
Kremlin, which last week called reports of clashes
in northwest Sinkiang province-home of impor-
tant Chinese nuclear testing facilities-"a lie from
beginning to end."
In a report on the militia in Sinkiang, a 660,000-
square-mile province consisting of mountains,
desert and grazing land, China's official Hsinhua
news agency said:
"THE KHALKHAS nationality militia in Ahochi
County has frequently had face-to-face struggles
against.Soviet armed intruders' wanton provoca-

tions and obstruction of Chinese herdsmen in their
work. The militia has been a strong force in
frustrating the criminal plots of the Soviet re-
visoinist new czars."
Hsinhua said nothing about the time, extent or
severity of the struggles or about any casualties.
It also was not known if these were previously
unreported clashes.
X But Hsinhua, without giving specific figures,
said the militia in Sinkiang was 60 per cent
bigger than in 1971. It also said 40 per cent of
the militia members were women and 70 per
cent were from minority nationalities.
THESE FRONTIER militia members, it added,
"practice target shooting from galloping horses,
often in snowstorms, and have achieved pinpoint
accuracy. -

O'Hara campaigns in
city for Senate seat

U.S. Rep. James O'Hara (D-
Mich.) was on familiar turf
yesterday as he came through
Ann Arbor to drum up support
for his bid on the U.S. Senate
seat to be vacated by retiring
Phillip Hart.
O'Hara, a University gradu-
ate, is one of several contenders
for the vacancy and threw leis
hat into the ring last Octoner.
He followed the lead of another
Senate hopeful, Rep. Oonald
Riegle (D-Mich.).
crat, O'Hara has a suburban
Detroit constituency made up
primarily of white, blue-collar
un tor e Nh vn} 'o-r

same minimum wage as any-
one else."
Though O'Hara tends to be a
liberal in labor matters, he
takes a conservativestance on
school busing. "I'm against ra-
cial busing, period," he states.
"The whole notion of assigning
children to schools on the basis
of their color is something that
repels me."
WHILE HE opposes busing,
he strives to show that he sup-
ports civil rights. "It was my
initervention with then-Attorney
General Robert Kennedy that
got Title VI of the Civil Rights
Act in 1964 put in there, which
slid that no federally supported
activity could continue to re-
ceive federal assistance unless

U. S. Army at the time of the battle. He had been sent to
