Attacks on Lin may
signal China unrest

I'll be high for weeks!'
10-year-old botanist and flower child Maureen Drexler of Louisville, Ky., rejoices over the harvesting
of her peyote-sunflower hybrid in her own backyard. She says her next cross-breeding endeavor will
be a mescaline string bean.

Witchcraft goes commercil

TOKYO (o)P - Reports from
China suggest the country's
leaders expect more political
troubles to follow their cam-
paign to discredit Lin Piao.
Lin has been accused of try-
ing to assassinate party chair-
man Mao Tse-tung after failing
to seize power in a palace coup.
The Chinese say Lin was kill-
ed in a plane crash in Mon-
golia last September when he
tried to flee to the Soviet Union.
Lin, 64, was defense minister
and the designated heir to Mao's
mantle.
Though the campaign to dis-
credit Lin has lasted almost a
year, there are indications he
still has powerful supporters, no-
tably in Kwangtung and Hun-
an provinces.
The Chinese press, however,
has not denounced him by
name; attacks are limited to
innuendoes.
There are suggestions the
campaign is possibly moving to-
ward a more critical stage. For-
eigners returning from China
say details of Lin's attempted
coup and his plot to kill Mao
are being disclosed to cadres
and gradually circulated public-
ly.
Red Flag, a Communist party
magazine, has linked his actions
to the Soviet Union in an ap-
parent move to elicit stronger
criticism.
In a move possibly intended to
prepare the Chinese for another
political upheaval, a recent is-
sue of the magazine compares
the history of party struggles to
"waves which undulate continu-
ously."
"This, in terms of time, means
that there are major strug-
gles once every few years," Red

Flag observes. "We do not mean
that all is tranquil between two
struggles, that we can therefore
lay our heads on our pillows and
just drop off to sleep. Each big
struggle is a continuation and
development of the day-to-day
struggle."
Mao"s opponents, Red Flag
warns, work surreptitiously and
they require several years to
rally their forces again for an-
other big trial of strength with
us."
Proseutor
asks review
of decision
(Continued fromniPage 31
In the text of a speech Kelly
delivered yesterday to the Mich-
igan Prosecuting Attorneys Asso-
ciation at Mackinac Island, he
said a high proportion of the
violent crimes in this country
are committed by persons 15 to
17 years old.
"Some of these people simply
cannot be corrected or reform-
ed. They are a menace to so-
ciety and they have to he lock-
ed up no matter how bad our
prisons are," Kelly stated.
Also uncertain following last
month's high court decision is
the question of retroactivity for
the 200 to 400 juveniles cur-
reatly serving prison sentencea,
who were tried as adults io Cir-
coil Courts.
According to Delhey's office,
this issue is currently working
its way through the appeals
process.

shelves.
There are books that give di-
rections on casting spells and
conducting the Rite of the New
Moon.
But the stock of occult sup-
plies is much more interesting.
The supply of herbs ranges from
" ueen' Elizabeth (used for mak-
ing a pendulum to fortell the
future) to snake root (used for
love spells) and dragon's blood
(a palm tree resin used for
sacrifical spells.)
Graveyard dust, talismans
such as the Lower Seal of Solo-
man, planchette boards for au-
tomatic writing, parchments and
dove's and dragon's blood are
also sold.
Two black-handled knives oc-
cupy a prominent place in a
display case on top of a scarlet
cloth.
"Those aren't for sale," Ma-
leva explained. "They're Atha-
me, and never used for cutting.
They could be used for drawing
magic circles and invoking spir-

its during ceremonies of high
magic if they're blessed and
consecrated."
Voodoo dolls of wax, straw,
and cloth are also for sale, but
Maleva always warns people
who buy them that the witches'
law of karma states that evil
returns threefold to anyone who
uses witchcraft to harm another
person.
Maleva, who is a third gener-
ation witch in the coven Amon-
RhIsis," said that "the difference
between black and white magic
is how it's used. Witches don't
believe in a devil, although Sa-
tan is recognized as a god of the
underworld.
"Witchcraft is basically a wor-
ship of nature and the seasons.
We worship the great horned
goat father god, and also a
mother god."
Each 13 - member coven ob-
serves eight great Sabbaths dur-
ing the year, some of them oc-
curring on the equinoxes and.
solstices. The new and full
moons are observed thirteen

times a year, as is an annual
fertility rite.
But most people who come in-
to The Oracle aren't interested
in holding rituals observing the
cycles of nature.
Although Maleva said there
are probably covens in Ann Ar-
bor, most of her customers art
interested in more immediate
gains. They come in and want to
cast a spell for money.
