Search for victims
Sutter County, Calif. sheriff's deputies continued digging yesterday
as they sought to unearth more victims in a series of bizarre slay-
ings. A 37-year-old farm-labor contractor has been charged with
nine murder counts in the incident, but officials fear more bodies
4 may be found.
CIA-trained troops
infiltrate Cambodia
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (P)-Twelve-man teams of Cambodian
spy troops, trained by American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
personnel at an undercover base in Laos, successfully infiltrated
deep into Communist territory in Cambodia two months ago, said
reliable western sources in Phnom Penh.
The sources said about 20 intelligence teams of a dozen men each
were flown last March from a base in Southern Laos to Communist-
controlled areas of northern Cambodia.
The Cambodian spy teams were flown aboard Thai helicopters
from the U.S. air base at Udorn, Thailand, the sources said. American
4 pilots and crewmen in uniform were aboard some of the aircraft,
they added.
Some details of the accounts were confirmed by U.S. officials, but
these officials claimed they had not been informed of the full extent
of the infiltration teams' activities.
The sources gave this account: In July 1970, about 250 young
Cambodians were selected from volunteers of the 15th Brigade and
were flown to Pakse and underwent eight months of rugged training
at a nearby camp. Americans in civilian clothes, who lived in Pakse,
supervised their instruction in map reading, radio communications,
explosives, first aid, coordination of air drops and other activities.
The Americans who trained them did not reveal for whom they
worked, but the Cambodians were told by their interpreters that the
Americans were members of the CIA.
Before being flown to their zone of operations in northeast Cam-
bodia last March, the intelligence teams were given North Vietnamese
uniforms. This ruse was intended to fool the local hill tribesmen
whose loyalty to Phenom Penh was then suspect.
The teams were under orders to avoid head-on clashes with the
enemy. Their mission was to spy on North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
troop and supply movements and send back information about the
northeastern provinces.

Agents of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation
yesterday s e r v e d sub-
poenas on two Detroit rad-
icals who were active in or-
ganizing anti-war demon-
strations in Washington
earlier this month.
Ken Kelley, 20, and Terry
Taube, 18, former members of
the White Panther Party, were
ordered to appear before a fed-
eral grand jury in Detroit on
June 3rd.
Kelley told newsmen yester-
day he expected the grand jury
to ask questions concerning the
March 1st bombing of the
U.S. Capitol and the anti-
war protests in Washington in
late April and early May.
While in Washington the
pair had lived in the sam
house as Leslie Bacon, suppos-

Bacon is currently testifying
before another federal grand
jury in Seattle which is in-

Stuart Albert and Judy Gum-
bo, two radicals who were sub-

New York, also lived with Ba-

Kelley said.
Everyone in the house, in-
cluding Bacon, Kelley said, had
worked for the Mayday collect-
ive newspaper, "Washington
May Go."
U.S. District Attorney Ralph
Guy s a i d yesterday in De-
troit "the scope of the grand
jury is secret." He would not

'U' ofiial look for
new bird repeilantS

University officials are seek-
ing new methods of repelling
pigeons in the wake of an ad-
ministrativehdecision to sus-
pend the use of the chemical
Avitrol because it was killing
the birds, not just driving them
One possible method, suggests
Bob Dennis of the environmen-
tal health department of the
University, is birth control.
Ornitrol, a chemical that acts
similarly to birth control pills,
supresses, Dennis says, "repro-
ductivity" in the birds.
The problem is cost-effective-
ness however. While Ornitrol
will not kill birds, it does not
necessarily repell them effect-
ively either.
Only 75 per cent of the pig-
eons population could ever be
dispelled by Ornitrol, University

officials point out, while Avitrol,
even though it is fatal, d o e s
keep bird droppings off campus
Ornitrol is also more expen-
sive than Avitrol, University
bird-watchers say.
University officials point to
two major reasons why pigeons
are classified as enemies of the
The raison d'etre of the repel-
lant program is keeping build-
ings physically clean.
Additionally, health problems
caused by the unabated prolif-
eration of pigeons are serious
ones officials claim. Notorious as
disease carriers, University offi-
cials argue, pigeons pose a dan-
ger to University employes work-
ing on the roof-tops of build-

Credit Union proposes housing plan

A non-profit corporation of University
credit unions will present plans in Lans-
ing today for the construction of about
600 units of ultra - modern, low - cost
housing on North Campus, beginning in
The corporation - UCU (University
Credit Union)-was formed last January
by the Student Credit Union, University
Cooperative, University Employes Credit
Union and the University Hospital
Credit Union to take advantage of a
1967 state legislative act authorizing
state-chartered credit unions to sponsor
state or federally assisted cooperative
housing for their members.
The proposal provides for a third of
the units to be in high or medium rise
structures and two-thirds in townhouses.
They would include 100 one-bedroom,

400 two-bedroom, and 100 three-bed-
room units and would serve low-to mod-
erate income married couples with or
without children-whether they be fac-
ulty members, students, University em-
ployes and retirees. Plans call for single
persons to be accommodated later.
The plans call for the units to be
rented at first, then converted to a co-
operative within two years.
The department of Housing and Ur-
ban Development (HUD), the Federal
Housing Administration (FHA), and the
Michigan S t a t e Housing Development
Authority (TVfSHDA) will provide the
financing for-the project under Section
236 of the HUD act of 1968 and 1969.
If the proposal is accepted, it will
mark the second significant low-rent
housing project to be implemented in
the area within- the last two months.

On April 16, the Regents approved a
plan to build 200 low-income housing
units near the p r e sent Northwood
Apartments site on North Campus, by
the fall of 1972. The units are scheduled
to rent at two-thirds the present market
The project will be financed by the
College Housing Program (CHP) of
HUD. The CHP is an interest subsidy
program under w hi c h the University
will obtain a commercial loan and the
federal government will pay all but
three per cent of the interest.
A total of 87 per cent of the units
will be open to students, with the re-
maining 122/2 per cent available for
staff. Up to 15 per cent of the uaits
could be occupied by families with chil-
dren younger than school age.
