Talking about assault is therapeutic

When Theresa got out of her car last Friday
light to walk to a fraternity party down the
eet, she was thinking about her safety. In-
ad of walking down the middle of the
;treet, as she usually does when she goes out
lone at night, Theresa chose the sidewalk of
orly-lit Lincoln Street because the road was
lippery and driving conditions were bad.
Just as she approached the parking lot of
he frat, Theresa, a University student, heard
omeone running up to her. She turned around
nd saw a stranger. Within seconds, he had
iumped on her back, put a gloved hand over

her mouth, and pushed her to the ground.
THE ATTACKER told Teresa (not her real
name) he just wanted to "cop a feel," but she
said, "After he copped his feel, he didn't leave,
so I don't know what he was going to do next."
Before he had a chance to rape her, four
people appropached the sidewalk and
managed to frighten him away.
According to Sargent William Canada of the
Ann Arbor Police Department, Theresa's
case is not unusual. "We've had assaults in
that area before," he said. In fact, a police
spokesman reported there was another at-
tempted rape on Pinecrest Jan. 14, and an at-
tempted abduction behind the Dental School

Jan. 15. Police say they see no connection
between the three cases..
Although Theresa was not raped, she
received two hard blows to the head. Canada
was not surprised. "He (the attacker) has to
make her shut up somehow and put the fear of
God in her," he said. "He either scares the
hell out of her or he slugs her."
THERESA SAID her biggest struggle was
deciding whether or not to fight back. "I
though 'do I let him do what he wants to do
and get it over with fast, or do I fight back,"'
she recalled. Because she believed it was only
a matter of time before someone found her,

she started to scream.

Iran sends troops
to Afghan frontier



Working conditions have improved
dramatically, but ;much remains to be
done in the area of national labor
relations, so said Lynn Williams, Inter-
:national Secretary of the United
Steelworkers of America, yesterday
morning at the Michigan Theatre.
Williams spoke at the morning
nary of the national labor conferen-
held in Ann Arbor this weekend. The
conference, which opened Friday
evening with speaker Michael
Harrington of the Democratic Socialist
Organizing Committee, included

plenaries, and a series of discussion
workshops. -

esigned to keep a union out of J. P.

thought organized labor would be better
off without it.
The past, the present, and the future
of the American labor movement were
the issues addressed at the closing
session of the conference.

He cited the University's investments

"The University invests over $50

Iran has moved reinforcements to
its border with Afghanistan for fear of
Soviet intervention, Weste"rz
diplomatic sources in Kabul said
"We are very worried and very
alarmed over the presence of Soviet
tanks some kilometers from our border
with Afghanistan," Foreign Minister
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh told the French
newspaper Le Figaro.
AT THE SAME time, American
correspondents departed from
Afghanistan after being expelled by the
Moscow-backed government in Kabul,
which accused them of unfair reporting
and meadling in the nation's internal
More than a dozen print reporters,
cameramen and radio-television
correspondents flew from Kabul to New
Delhi aboard a regulargly scheduled
commercial flight.
The journalists arriving in India said
other American reporters took an
earlier Afghan flight to West Germany
and that still others were allowed to
travel by land to Pakistan. There were
believed to be between 50 and 60
American journalists in Kabul before
the explusion order.
THE EXPULSION order did not ap-
ply to other Western correspondents,
including non-Americans working for
U.S. news organizations, according to
American sources.
Before the American press corps was
deported yesterday, one source in
Kabul told UPI correspondent William
Holstein, "The Iranians must have got-
ten a case of nerve because they're on
alert over there."
Western diplomats in the Afghan
capital earlier this week reported that
the Soviet Union's 66th motorized rifle
division and a second unidentified
division had moved toward the Iranian
border. As many as 20,000 troops may
be involved.
"WE HAVE TRIED to make the
Soviets understand that there can be no
question that we would tolerate the oc-

cupation of Afghanistan, wich would be
a direct threat to us," Ghotbzadeh said.
In other developments, Soviet tanks
and armored personnel carriers were
rolling back into Kabul yesterday and
fresh troops were being ferried into the
Afghan capital by air from the Soviet
In Washington, Defense Department
officials said thousands of Afghan army
troops have defected to the side of the

fighting what they call a holy war
against a succession of three Marxist

against Soviet occupation troops for the
past 3% weeks.

United News of India had reported
Friday that some 900 Chinese had "in-
filtrated" Badakhshan, where some of
the heaviest fighting has been reported
since the Soviets sent 100,000 troops into
Afghanistan and helped install a new
government Dec. 27.
China said yesterday it was breaking
off talks designed to normalize Chinese-
Soviet relations. A Chinese Foreign
Ministry spokesman said the decision
stemmed from the Soviet action in
Afghanistan. The talks, which began
Oct. 30, had been expected to resume

led all Wolvwrine scorers for the 12th
time in 1F games with 23 points.
However. it was senior guard Mark

which proved to be the difference.

THE DEFEAT was the Buckeye's
first in conference play, dropping
their first-place record to 5-1, a full
game ahead of both Purdue and
Minnesota. It also snapped Ohio
State's seven-game winning streak.
For Michigan, however, the upset
victory was a much-needed shot in
the arm after dropping three suc-
cessive road games to Indiana, Pur-

Islamic militants holding 50 hostages
in the U.S. Embassy accused "the great
Satan, the blood-sucking America"
yesterday of fomenting unrest across
Iran in order to disrupt the Jan. 25
presidential elections.
Foreign Minister Sadegh Ghotbzadeh
said Iran may provide aid to anti-
g overnment rebels in Afghanistan if
Soviet troops are not soon withdrawn
from that neighboring country.
ASKED ABOUT the hostages, who
spent their 77th day in captivity, Ghot-
bzadeh insisted the deposed shah of
Iran must be returned for trial.
"Unhappily, it is for them (the United
States) to make the first move, because
it is evident that from the day the
hostages leave here, no one will take
any further measure to return the dic-
tator," he said in an interview with the
Paris newspaper Le Figaro.
In the riot-torn city of Tabriz, an

Islamic revolutionary court arrested 20
air force officers and accused them of
plotting against the state, reports said.
But a local leader said the unrest in
