Otter bites Yorty
Sam Yorty was bitten yesterday
by a sea otter called "Mayor
Slim Snorty" during the open-
ing of a new park section at
Busch Gardens
The mayor's wounds were de-
scribed as superficial, but he'll
get a tetanus shot.
Yorty was bitten on the hand
as he received the key to the
gardens from the otter.
"Slim Snorty," also called
"His Otter," acts in an animal
show in the new five-acre sec-
tion of the park.

With 2,412 of 2,590 precincts

Both McClellan and his aides
credited the victory to hard work
that turned out the McClellan
vote yesterday. The senator said
many of his supporters stayed
home during the May 30 prefer-

he was not in any trouble.
McClellan led the ticket in the
first primary, two weeks ago,
but failed by more than five per
cent of the vote to obtain the
majority to escape the runoff.

Nude bathing
California Supreme Court ruled
yesterday that a person may
sunbathe nude on an isolated
beach without being guilty of
criminal indecent exposure.
Such a secluded unveiling
does not° violate Section 314 of
the State Penal code which
prohibits indecent exposure if
"willfully and lewdly" com-
mitted for the purpose of sex-
ual arousal, the court said in a
unanimous decision.
The ruling struck down the

This was apparently the first
time Soviet officials have ac-
tively encouraged a Russian
writer or poet to accept an invi-
tation from Israel. University
Prof. Carl Proffer, who has just
returned from a week long
flurry of negotiation with Brod-
sky in Vienna, suggests that the
Soviets must have "considered
him an irritant" to so willing-
ly allow his departure.
After his meeting with the
Soviet officials, Brodsky con-
tacted his old friend, Carl Prof-
who was then in Russia.
Brodsky asked Proffer if the
Slavic languages and literature
professor could help him emi-
gate to the United States, rath-
er than Israel, and the wheels
began to turn.
Proffer immediately returned
to the United States. He
broached the possibility of hir-
ing Brodsky to University of-
ficials, including literary college
Dean Frank Rhodes, and main-
tained telephone contact with

When he left Russia, Brod-
sky flew to Vienna where he
again met Proffer. There the
two spent another week ironing
details for the move, finally an-
nounced last week.
According to Proffer, Brod-
sky's "culture is English, west-
ern and' he wanted to come
somewhere where Slavic studies
were developed. The Univrsity
has an excellent department."
"We also publish the Russian
Triquarterly Journal, which has
printed a great deal of Brod-

sky's poetry over the past few
years," he added.
Brodsky hasn't had much of
an official audience in the So-
viet Union, and much of his
work has circulated. in the un-

was sentenced to five years at a
labor camp.
"But he never went to pri-
son," Proffer said yesterday.
"He was at a state collective
labor farm and he was able to
leave after eighteen months.
He's not bitter about it at all...
He got a lot of work done."
Brodsky is flying to London
for a poetry festival sponsored
by W. H. Auden on June 24-25
and should arrive here shortly
before the end of the month.
Proffer says that Brodsky will
"probably vacation with my
family this summer and teach
a course in Russian and one in
English this fall."
He may also give a 'speaking

back to Russia to visit," Proffer
"He has no animosity toward
the Soviet Union," he added,
"and he hopes that his name
remains in Russian literature."

"If the South Vietnamese
would accept taking as many
casualties in an attack as they

For the first time, the com-
