fatally shot Monday as he was taking
cash receipts and an undetermined
amount of cash to a bank on Detroit's
northwest side, Detroit police said -
Police said Reddix Allen, 23, and a
former vice-president of SGC in 1974-75,
left his workplace, Bover Realty, 19300
Greenfield, at 3:40 p.m. Monday to take g
cash receipts to the bank, which police "' '
declined to name. Police said he parked
his car outside the building and was ap-
proached by a 20-year-old black male. ., ,
According to police, a struggle ensued
before the male suspect shot Allen once ;
in the side, then fled with the pouch
around the building to a car and left.
POLICE SAID Allen then "wan-
dered" to the front of the building
where he collapsed on the grass. An
Emergency Medical Service unit then
took him to an unnamed hospital where
he died at 4:17 p.m.
The male suspect is still at large,

75 under President Carl Sandburg

If you placed your bets on Skylab, the final
statistics are in: Re-entry time, 12:08 p.m. Eastern
Daylight Time; location, near Ascension Island,
coordinates 15W, 8'S. Break-up time and location,
the same. Communications ceased at 12:11 p.m.
The North American Air Defense Command said
the largest piece fell near Kalgoorlie in south-
western Australia at 12:37 p.m., give or take two
minutes. That was when Skylab officially ceased to
exist. "This is our best guess," said a NASA
spokesman. Good luck collecting bets.

EMU may fallow
Regents at Eastern Michigan
University (EMU) have apparently
made a decision on who will be the next
president of that university.
The EMU Board met Wednesday
night in closed session for four hours. A
new president will most likely be an-
nounced at a special meeting early next
week, according to EMU regents.
ROBERT LEESTAMPER, president
of Southeast Missouri State University,
and John Porter, recently-resigned
head of the state department of public
instruction are the two remaining can-
Board vice-chairwoman Beth Milford
said the Regents' committees would
meet again soon to announce a decision.
Gary Hawks, EMU vice-president
who has been involved in the presiden-
tial search said he did not know
whether the Regents made any
decisions at the meeting. He said 24
hours notice was needed before a
special meeting could be called.

Chronicle, the San Diego Evening Tribune, the
Riverside Press Enterprise, and the Escondido
Times Advocate, all in California, reported
numerous calls inquiring about the absence of the
strip-as many as 1,400 in two and a half hours at
the L.A. Times, a spokesman there said. Brown has
denounced the series, penned by cartoonist Garry
Trudeau, which deals with a $1,000 contribution to
Brown's 1974 political campaign fund from Sidney
Korshak. Korshak is listed with the attorney
general's office as an organized crime figure.
Brown called the Korshak allegations "false and
libelous." Said Chronicle Managing Editor William
German. "We think the series is hilarious ... in-
cisive . . . but we have not been able to substantiate
the charges." The Detroit Free Press, which has a
monopoly on Doonesbury in this area, has con-
tinued to run the tongue-in-cheek comic.

Doonesbury may be too hot for California to han-
die, but the weather out there has Ann Arbor
beat-it was 115' in Needles, California Wednesday.
At any rate, today will be hot by Ann Arbor stan-
dards. The high temperature will stretch to almost
90', the low tonight will be in the 60s. It'll be humid,
though, and expect some isolated thundershowers
in late afternoon or early evening.
