Deaths
mount
in Peru
30,000 feared
slain by quake;
area devastated
LIMA, Peru (M)-The death
toll from P e r u ' s disastrous
earthquake mounted yesterday
and foreign diplomats quoted
government officials as fear-
ing it might reach 30,000.
The picture was one of in-
credible property damage-thou-
sands of buildings destroyed, a
number of cities almost totally
demolished and, according to
pilots of military observation
planes, entire villages "erased from
the map."
First reports of foreign casualties
included three American dead, two
presumed dead and one missing.
Conservative estimates indicated
more than 100,000 persons had
been left homeless in Peru's cold
Andean winter.
Diplomats said the fears of the
Peruvian government's disaster
committee are based on the fact
that the quake ripped away nat-
ural dikes on one or more lakes
high in the Andes.
A murderous wall of lake water
was said to have swept yesterday
through a canyon known as Calle-
jon de Huaylas, or Huaylas Alley,
often called the Switzerland of
Peru.
The Huaylas canyon was hardest
hit by the quake. The cities of
Huaras and Caraz were reported
90 per cent destroyed and a mili-
tary pilot said yesterday afternoon
that Yungay "has disappeared-It
is no more."
An amateur radio operator re-
ported yesterdoy from Caraz that
tons of water, apparently pouring
down from a ruptured natural
dike, snfashed into the valley down
and completed the destruction be-
gun the day before. He estimated
the death toll for the two days in
Caras at 2,000.
Other radio reports from the
striken area along 600 miles of the
Peruvian coast, where rescuers be-
gan to move yesterday, put the
total dead high in the thousands.
An American priest calling from
Huaras to a ham operator in Texas
estimated the figure at 15,000.
Despite the predictions of the
government's disaster committee,
the official toll of known dead
stood Monday at 360-200 in the
port city of Chimbote and 160 in
Huaras.
As the Peruvian government
mounted massive relief operations,
a worldwide aid movement got un-
der way Monday.
Neighboring Chile reported im-
mediately with material aid. A
Chilean air force transport plane
landed in Lima late yesterday
afternoon with blankets, medi-
cines and other emergency pro-
visions.
In Washington, the Organiza-
tion of American States met Mon-
day to consider forms of aid. In
New York, United Nations Secre-
tary-General U Thant cabled the
Lima government that his organ-
ization was "ready to offer . .
every assistance within the re-
sources available."'

Newton
verdict
overruled
Conviction of
Black Panther
voided by court
I SAN FRANCISCO (N) - The
voluntary manslaughter con-
viction of Black Panther co-
founder Huey P. Newton was
reversed Friday by the Cali-
fornia Court of Appeal.
The three-judge panel ruled
the trial judge failed to give properI
instruction to the jury.I
Newton, Black Panther minis-
ter of defense, was convicted in
September 1968 of the fatal shoot-
ing of an Oakland policeman in
1967.
He currently is serving a 2 to
15 year prison sentence in the
California Men's Colony at San
Luis Obispo, and twice had been
denied parole.
The decision becomes effective
in 60 days. A spokesman for the
attonrey general's office said the
state probably will ask for a re-
hearing of the case.-
bail wrs denied pending appeall
bythe state.
Justices Joseph Rattigan, Pres-
ton Devine and Winslow Christian
returned a unanimous 51-page
decision overturning the convic-
tion.
Newton originally was charged
with murder in the death of of-
ficer John Frey, assault with a
deadly weapon upon office Herbert
Heans, and kidnaping of a man
named Dell Ross.
Alameda County Superior Court
Nudge Monroe Friedman granted
Newton's motion for acquittal on
the kidnaping charge and the jury
acquitted him of the assault'
charge, but convicted him on thel
lesser manslaughter count.
The shootout, on Oct. 28, 1967,
came after Frey halted a car New-
ton was driving. Heans came to
Frey's aid, and the shooting left
Frey dead and Heans wounded.
Newton was shot in the abdo-
men and testified he was uncon-
scious or semi-conscious from the
time he was wounded until he
found himself at the entrance of
~a hospital, with no knowledge of
how he arrived there.
The appeal court upheld defense
attorney Charles Garry's assertion;
that there was prejudical error in
the trial judge's failure to instruct
the jury that unconsciousness
could be a complete defense to a
charge of criminal homicide.

Actions in Detroit 1
protest war, killings
Over 2,000 people rallied in Detroit Saturday morning as
part of a nationwide action protesting the war in Indochina
and the killings at Kent State, Jackson State, and Augusta.
Sponsored by the Detroit Coalition to End the War and the
Student Mobilization Committee, the rally at Kennedy Square
followed a march of about 1,000 people from the Wayne State
University campus.
Following the rally, some 500 demonstrators departed
for nearby Selfridge Air Force Base where they staged a
"Picnic for Peace."
Selfridge had been ordered closed the day before because
of the possibility that "militant groups with a long history
of violence," would attend the picnic. There were no inci-
dents at the picnic, which was "

PROF. RICHARD MANN blasts Senate Assembly for not tapping
the opinions of those involved in last term's BAM strike before
acting on a proposal to penalize striking faculty members. As-
sembly expressed opposition to the proposal at yesterday's meeting.
'INHERENT RISKS':

Assembly
hits strike
p ro posal
By ROB BIER
Declaring that existing procedures are "appropriate" for
dealing with striking faculty members, Senate Assembly
yesterday refused to endorse a proposed regental policy which
would dock the pay of faculty members for "withholding
services" during class boycotts.
The motion, introduced by journalism Prof. Robert Bishop,
and passed 31-12, stated, "the Senate Assembly feels that no new
policy statement is necessary." However, it went on to state, "If such
a policy is to be promulgated, it Is strongly recommended that a
committee representative of the entire University be formed to study
the issue."
The major concern expressed by most Assembly members was
over the questions of academic freedom and the role of the professor
raised by the proposed policy. Others such as education Prof. Claude
Eggertsen, expressed concern that such action by the Regents would
erode the position of Assembly as a recognized faculty voice.
"Adopting this is just playing the game the Regents set for us,"
Eggertsen said. "If we do that we have repudiated all we have done
toward a role in policy-making over the past few years."
Psychology Prof. Raphael Ezekiel delivered perhaps the most
impassioned speech of the meeting in support of individual freedom
for university professors. "To me a professor is not respectable per-
son. He is a maverick, if he chooses to be. He is with young people
and he must act honestly with them. He may be the last adult they
come in contact with who is only acting as truth dictates to him."
Anthropology Prof. Gloria Marshall, speaking for black faculty
.members, told Assembly she felt that in going on strike she was not
"withholding services," but was "extending the educational process."
"This proposed policy is a move to further repress those of us
who want to change the University," she said.
"Do you want to control the strikes? Or do you want to find if
maybe your colleagues have a different concept of what it means
to support a BAM strike?" psychology Prof. Richard Mann asked the
Assembly members. He questioned the lack of involvement by strik-
ing teaching fellows and faculty members in the Assembly debate.
Prof. Gerald Abrams, of the medical school and one of the
faculty members who helped draft the regental proposal, said, "There
d was the understanding on the committee that there will be a policy.
n We worked under that presumption and tried to get the best possible."
"We didn't see it asdpunitive action. It's a matter of equity. If a
faculty member withholds his services, he should not be paid for it,"
e Abrams said.
e A large number of other reasons for opposing the regental meas-
ure were advanced by members of Assembly during yesterday's special
meeting which was called specifically to discuss the proposed strike
n policy.
Crawford said he opposed the policy because "this specific form
of non-professional behavior should not be singled out from all
- others" and because he believes the policy would be unenforceable.
y Assembly's action came in response to a proposal presented to
the Regents last month and subsequently tabled until Assembly had
a chance to respond. The proposal would have set up rules and pro-
icedures for cutting the pay of faculty members who cancel classes
;h for the purpose of supporting actions such as last term's Black
- Action Movement strike.
e While the Regents amended the original document, submitted by
a committee of two faculty members and two deans, to leave pay
- withholding and appeal procedures within the departments, the policy
- was still not acceptable to Assembly.
dr The effect of yesterday's action is uncertain since the repre-
f sentative faculty body has no decision-making power and can only
make recommendations to the Regents.
le Should the Regents decide a policy is necessary in spite of Assem-
bly's action, then they would be free to adopt a permanent policy-
n or an interim one, pending the outcome of a study such as the one
sh suggested in the Assembly resolution.
y Several faculty representatives yesterday expressed concern that
such a study would involve Assembly in rule-making for the entire
n University community. Bishop countered that while the input for the
o study was to be University-wide, the policy formed would be ap-
plicable only to faculty members.

Cyclical

boom

By NADINE COHODAS
"Ann Arbor ought to form a cycling club," says F. D. Plotner,
one of the largest dealers in new and used bicycles.
In business for 25 years at his William St. store, Plotner says
a cycling club would be profitable because Ann Arbor is currently
experiencing a "bicycle boom."
"It's hard to tell how long it will last, of course. Right now
people are interested in cycling-they're conscious of exercising,
of pollution and economy-it's far more economical to ride a bike
than drive a car," he says.
Many students, as any glance
around the campus will con-
firm, apparently agree with
Plotner. "I had a car for a
while but it's not worth it,"
says Sue Vandenburg. "Parking
a car is a pain but there are
bike racks all over.
"With a bike I think I get
out more," she adds. "On Sat-
urday's especially, I ride down

hits Ann Arbor
another source of used bikes, the supply coming from bikes im-
pounded and not reclaimed. But a spokesman for the police depart-
ment says the auctions can only take place "when we have enough
-about four times a year."
Plotner attributes the low-used bike market to the recession in
cycling that has occurred over the last four or five years. "When
more students were riding bikes about six years ago, we built up
a surplus of used ones," he explains.
But the bicycle lull during the late 60's kept the surplus from
growing. And now that interest has renewed, that surplus has been
used up, Plotner adds.
Getting a bike, used or new,
is only half of the problem,
however. The other half is
keeping it-many times easier
said than done.
Although there are quite an
assortment of bicylcle locks
available and plenty of iron
racks around, there are appar-
ently just as large an assort-

1972 renewal of Wallace's third-
party presidential campaign. Wal-
lace has sidestepped questions
abouthis 1972 plans, saying only
that he would if elected serve aI
full fours years as governor.
Battling to come from behind in
a state where his words were uolit-
ical scripture only two years ago,
Wallace has repeatedly invoked
the question of race in the waning
days of campaign. He said Brewer
received the "bloc vote" of Ala-
bama blacks in the initial primary.
"If the bloc vote controls the
June 2 election, it will control the
politics of Alabama for the next
50 years," said Wallace who orig-
' inally rose to the governorship as
a fervent segregationist.
Brewer accused Wallace of scare
tactics.
In California, Jesse M. Unruh,
once the speaker of the state as-
sembly, appears well ahead of Los
'Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty, in a!
Democratic primary for the nomi-
nation to oppose Reagan for
governor.
