sources quoted by the Detroit
Free Press, both Giacalone and
Steele were granted immunity
to prevent them from further
invoking the Fifth Amendment
before the grand jury.
ALTHOUGH Steele had not
previously appeared before the
grand jury, the order sent to
Judge Feikens indicated that
she intended to invoke the Fifth
Amendment if called.
The Free Press quoted sources
close to the Hoffa investigation
as saying that the grand jury, in
granting the immunity to the
pair, was trying "to tie together
loose ends."
"They're trying to determine
the nature of their activity at
the time of the disappearance,"
the source was quoted as say-
ing. "They're much more con-
cerned with his (Giacalone's)
activity and how it ties in with
what they know."
GIACALONE emerged as a
major figure in the probe about
ten days after Hoffa disappeared
on July 30, 1975, when his 1975
maroon Mercury was seized by
federal investigators.
He had allegedly loaned his
car to Charles "Chuckie"

Schmidt said he would prefer
to ignore the topic: "I don't

On the southern African ques-

United States have been pres-

Another issue of mutual in-

Soviet Union was proclaimed.
Kissinger said last weekend it
is premature to suggest that the
meeting foreshadows an easing
of East-West tensions.

Hans-Dietrich Genscher, meets
with Ford and Kissinger after a
White House welcoming cere-

Baltimore tomorrow afternoon
and Philadelphia on Saturday,
and then goes to San Francisco
for a private visit.

AMIN'S PAST praise of the
killing of Jews by Hitler and
Palestinian guerrillas was cited
by both Israel and the United

Amin's foreign minister, Ju-

was using the Security Council
to "boast of the killing of Ugan-

destruction of property" while
"so-called superpowers try to

about twenty Ugandan soldiers

During the debate, Britain ac-

Jack Nicholson is perhaps the finest actor working it cinema
today and in FIvE EASY PIECES it's easy to see why. As
Onhy Dupea, "an extraordinary person posing as a common
man" (Nicholson), he is at once uncompromising yet vulner-
able, charming yet childish. Nicholson touched us all with his
performance as a man cums ydeaingwith his diisisionment
while running from his frustrations. Karen Black, Susan Ans-

Tis is an outraseous film for Nicholson fans who want to see
Jaet before he became a "movie star." In his last roe before
Easy Rider, he plays Stoney, an acid-headed hippy with a long
pony tail, lead guitar player for an acid rock group. Complete
with grotesque LSD hallucinations, music by the Seeds and
Strawberry Alarm Clock, a spot by Bruce Dern as a flipped-out
