minister of the United Arab
Emirates defense force, svent on
board the jet to negotiate.
The hijackers are demanding

that Israel release the surviving

"THE POSITION of Israel that
we don't give in to blackmail
still holds," Israeli minister of
transport S h i m o n Peres told
newsmen at Lod Airport near Tel
A Japan Airlines spokesperson
said the hijackers tried to land
the big Boeing 747 with 145 per-
sons aboard at Basra, an Iraqi
city on the Persian Gulf, but were
forced on because the airport was
too small.
The spokesperson said the craft

on the gulf, but authorities re-
fused permission to land.

Bullard: Pot
repeal only
Rep. Perry Bullard, (D-Ann Ar-
bor), yesterday said repeal of
Ann Arbor's liberal marijuana
ordinance was only a "tempor-
ary blow" to efforts to legalize
Bullard also called for a re-
call campaign by "progressive
people in the city of Ann Arbor"
against Republicans who voted
to repeal the ordinance that set
a $5 fine for use or possession of
"The backward repeal vote by
the Republican council members
on July 10 is a temporary blow
to statewide legalization efforts,"
Bullard said in a monthly news-
letter to constituents.
THE DAILY certainly hopes
that Bullard's analysis of the
situation is more accurate than
his facts. The council meeting
was held July 9 nut a day later
as he would have his constitu-
ents believe. Sorry Perry.

TITUSVILLE, Fla.t)-- Sher-
iff's deputies impounded yester-
day the last of nine Greyhound
buses which a judge had ordered
held as securits until Greyhound
settles a $192,000 law suit.
Later in the day, the company
posted $400,000 bond to win re-
lease of the 10-ton Scenicruisers.
and got their buses back," a
sheriff's spokesmnan said. "We
had nine buses this morning.
Now we have none."
The seizure of buses began on
Wednesday when deputies took
control of a Gre hoind buts with
eight passengers aboard. The
company then agreed to provide
eight o t h e r Scenicruisers as
"hostages" until the suit was
Theddeputies went to the Gres-
hound depot in Titusville, which
is located near Cape Kennedy,
on Thursday and Friday morn-
ing and collected the eight buses,
storing them at a local body shop.
THE BATTLE of the buses
involves Greyhound's fight over
$192,000 in damages awarded in
a 1970 lawsuit to the widow of
Charles Cory, a Volasia County
man killed in a 1966 bus-truck
Greyhound said the deputies

had caused inconvenience to its
passengers who were held up for
two hours before being allowed
to continue their journey on an-
other bits.
"They threatened to stop more
buses, which would he unneces-
sary disruption of. local, county
and stateatransit," said Conpton
French, a spokesman for Grey'
"IT'S EASY TO seize a bus"
said Emile Eichelberger, of the
Brevard County Sheriff's Depart-
ment. "You don't have to bunt
for them. They can't hide and
sou know wher they're going to
be at. Youa jusot r e a d the
schedule." -
Circuit Court Judge Tom Wad-
dell rejected a request Thursday
by Greshound to stop the bus
seizures. Waddell said GreyhounJ
had missed the deadline for fur-
ther action in the case. He said
a court order permitting the
deputies to hold the buses would
he allowed to stand.
Greyhound then agreed to pit
up the eight $20,000 buses as
security pending an appeal to the
Florida Supreme Court.
"They have so many buses, and
we only want to seize a few to
cover the damages," said Jim
Nance, Mrs. Cory's lawyer, who
obtained the original court order.
