me. I said they would come looking

couldn't breathe, and threatened to

going to tell him he could have it, too, if
he wanted to do that."
After about five minutes, two couples
passed nearby and asked what was
going on. Theresa was still face down
on the ground, where the attacker had
ordered her to freeze.
THE ASSAILANT said Theresa was,
sick,' but one of the passers-by asked,
"If she's only sick, why do you have
your hand over her mouth?" The
assailant became frightened and ran.
After she had pulled herself together,
Theresa went into the frat. "I wanted to
be made a fuss over. I told them I'd
been raped. He didn't rape me, but
that's how I felt.
"Everyone was just sort of standing
around watching me cry: I wanted
them to do something. I knew when I
said 'rape' they would take action," she
added.
THERESA WENT straight to the
police station and the the hospital. She
has been especially pleased, she said,
with the police's help. The detective on
the case has called her four or five
times in the last week, just to check that
she is all right. "Everyone was really
concerned about me emotionally, even
more than physically," she explained.
Because Theresa has talked about the
incident freely, she says she is handling
it well. She is sometimes still afraid

that her assailant is looking for her, but
said she would probably testify against
him if the case is ever brought to court.
According to Canada, the police are
not "specifically pinning it on one guy,"
but both Theresa and the witness who
frightened the attacker away are going
through mug shots at police headquar-
ters. Police hope that Theresa will be
able to recognize her assailant, but all
she can clearly remember now is "a
shock of curly or wavy blond hair."
CANADA SAID the police absolutely
do not believe Theresa was in any way
responsible for the assault. "That's a
load of crap," he said. "A woman
should be free to walk down the street, I
don't care if she walks down the street
nude.
"We don't buy the idea of the woman
enticing the assailant. Assault begins in
the man's mind," he said.
Theresa said she hopes that talking
about her experience will make other
women more careful. But she is also
encouraging people to be alert when
they are walking around town. "I'm
tired of there being sickos on the street
and nobody getting involved," she said.
"We've got to help each other to make
this a good world."
Canada added, "Women should be
especially careful at all times. There
are a lot of nuts out there."

Police, FBI. baffled
by Ypsi bank heist

BY TIMOTHY YAGLE
Local police agencies have few leads
as to the whereabouts of the lone gun-
man who pulled off the largest bank
heist in Michigan's history Wednesday
afternoon.
The robber, described only as
wearing a grey ski mask, gloves, and a
heavy winter coat, escaped from the

National Bank of Ypsilanti with $421,000
just after 3 psm. Wednesday. The rob-
bery was not reported until Friday.
BEFORE WEDNESDAY'S robbery,
police officials said, the most money
taken in a bank robbery was the
$153,000 taken from a bank in Livonia 19,
years ago.
FBI officials in Detroit said the thief
lugged the money, most of which was in
$5 to $100 denominations, in two large
garbage bags. Officials added that they
still don't understand how he did it.
No shots were fired during the rob-
bery and the only injury occurred when
the thief hit a teller over the shoulder
after he opened the vault in the bank's
basement. The teller, 18-year-old David
Daugherty of Ypsilanti, was not
seriously hurt, according to Ypsilanti
police officials.k
The entire robbery took no more than
five minutes, FBI officials said.

tract, and are considered to be studen-
ts, but not employees, of the University.
Kamara also criticized the Regents,
whom he said "have looked at disdain
towards student groups.''
"The Regents are publicly-elected of-
ficials - if they will not hear our
demands, we.need Regents who will,"
said Kamara.
Student attitudes have changed
dramatically since the 1960's, claimed
Kamara, who said the process is
fostered by the corporate state.
"THE APPOINTMENT of an
ecopomist as the head of this cor-
poration is no accident," he added.
Gloria Jordan, a Mississippi poultry
worker, received a standing ovation
telling the story of her frustrating
working conditions and involvement in
helping organize a union. Jordan said
she felt like "a slave on a plantation,"
and explained that lunch and break
time is dramatically shorter than that
promised, the conditions are com-
pletely unsanitary and breed disease,
there is a total lack of seniority or
promotions in the plant, and the
workers are repressed - they are
allowed bathroom privileges three
timhes a week, and worked thirteen
hours a day at minimum wage.
"The dignity of human beings is ours,
and we're going to continue to stand up

for it," said Jordan, regarding the 200
of 350 workers who walked out of their
jobs.
"WE THOUGHT the sweatshop days
were over, and we thought slavery wa
long gone," said James Farme
Executive Director of the Coalition of
American Public Employees in respon
se to Jordan's speech.
Farmer, along with Kamaraf ad-
dressed what he said is a decline of civil
rights since the movement of the 1960',,
and an increase in oppression of
workers.
