" AFTER A VOLUNTEER jotted
down a phrase in a foreign language, a
I ssian phrase meaning "how are
you," Kolisch hovered over the
chalkboard and then proceded to copy
the phrase him~elf just above it; and
He correctly identified the amount of
change (70 cents) an audience member
had in his pocket.
After his demonstration of ESP,
Kolisch turned to the subject of hyp-
notism. After giving a brief history of
hypnotism, and assuring that it is a
legitimate and useful practice in the
world today, he asked for audience
members to fill the stage's 25 folding
chairs to "share the experience of hyp-
notism." Nearly 40 people flooded the.
stage, grabbing folding chairs and
props from backstage to sit, on. Once
organized, Kolisch began his oration
that was planned to alter their con-
sciousness:

"DON'T FEEL uptight, there's
nothing to be afraid of," he said, pacing
across the stage in front of them.
Asking them to clasp their hands
together tightly above their heads, he
continued, "Your whole body is totally
at ease, your mind is withdrawing from
your body. Imagine a capsule between
your hands now, which is bursting from
the heat. Glue is flowing out of the cap-
sule, drawing your hands tighter and
tighter together."
Having lowered their arms, Kolisch
told them to "drop your body over onto
your neighbor. Deep sound sleep."
Seconds later, the entire group of 25
subjects were drooped over the
shoulders of their neighbors. Some in
the rear, failing to reach the desired
hypnotic state, simply stood up and
walked offstage to their seats. Of those
remaining, Kolisch praised them as
having "terrific concentration powers
- these are the people I consider the
best subjects."

Mud flies before primary

(Continued from Page 1)
Phil Bokovoy, Greene's campaign
manager, replied with this salvo:
"They've tried to create the impression
all along that there's not a whole lot
behind Earl's campaign."'
But the darkest mud came from Ken
Jakubowski, an LSA junior supporting

Greene who said he was "angry" that
Stephanopoulos was running.
JAKUBOWSKI REPEATED what a
lot of city Democrats have said for
some time - off the record. He said
council member Morris, a key
Stephanopoulos supporter, "wants a
shot at the mayor's job," and so is
building a loyal Second Ward
organization that can pull out the
student vote sometime in the future.
"I'm hoping it's not going to have a
detrimental effect on the party," City
Democratic Party leader Bob Faber
said of the Second Ward primary cam-
phign.
Faber said bad feelings among mem-
bers of the party after the primary
could harm the winner in the April elec-
tion.
Stephanopoulos' group began
registering students in the first six
preincts of the Second Ward in late Oc-
tober, setting up a table in the fishbowl
and enlisting students in meal lines at
dorm cafeterias.
The six precincts include the hill
dorms - Alice Lloyd Hall, Couzens
Hall, East Quad, The Lawyers Club,
Mary Markley, Hall, Mosher Jordan
Hall, Oxford Hpusing and Stockwell
Hall.
But the registration drive may not
help Stephanopoulos on Feb. 18 -
Greene, the incumbent, is using the
same list of newly registered voters as
a group to appeal for support among
students.'

United Press International reports
Olympic boycott rejected
MEXICO CITY - Delegates at an international Olympic meeting
yesterday unanimously rejected President Carter's proposed boycott of the
Moscow Olympics. The Association of National Olympic Committees issued
a resolution calling on its 141 member nations to "reject and avoid external
influences" to move the games away from Moscow.
The association met for two days in Mexico City, reflecting the over-
whelming sentiment of sporting officials in rejecting a call for an Olympic
boycott in retaliation for the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
France, West Germany join
U.S., demand Soviets leave
PARIS - France and West Germany joined the United States yesterday
in demanding a Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan and warned that any
further aggression would be met by a unified Western alliance.
Although a statement issued at the conclusion of a three-day summit
meeting in'Paris contained no mention of specific retaliation against the
Soviet Union, diplomats said that unless Moscow withdraws from
Afghanistan soon, France and West Germany would be forced to join the'
U.S. boycott of the summer Olympics in Moscow.
Miller cleared of charges
WASHINGTON - Treasury Secretary G. William Miller has been
cleared of wrongdoint in connection with payoff charges against Textron
Inc., Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti said yesterday.
Miller has denied knowledge of any illegal payments by Textron when he
headed that company between 1974 and 1978. Last week, the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) said Miller made "erroneous and misleading"
statements to shareholders in denying there were any questionable foreign
payoffs.
Civiletti said his decision against calling for a special independent in-
vestigation of the SEC charges against Miller was not influenced by the
White House. Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.) announced his Senate
Banking Committee would still reopen hearings into Textron and Miller
because of the SEC report.
Carter reacts coolly to
Brezhnev's call for detente
WASHINGTON - Presidential spokesman Jody Powell yesterday ad-
vised Americans to take a hard look at the "potential for catastrophe" in
Soviet policies in response to Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev's call for
renewed detente, and said future cooperation between the countries depends
on the Kremlin.
Brezhnev was quoted by the Communist.Party newspaper Pravda saying,
"Our peoples have mutual concern to overcome international tension."
Powell said Americans should give serious thought toSoviet aggression,
given this country's dependence on oil from the Persian Gulf region. He also
said there must be a long-term commitment to building the nation's
security.
Gacy trial begins today
CHICAGO - John Wayne Gacy goes on trial today for the sex slayings of
33 young men - the greatest number of murder charges ever brught again-
st anyone in U.S. history. Prosecution attorneys said they exRW to call 50 to
100 witnesses to present their case.
Gacy, 37, allegedly lured young men to his house with the promise of
construction jobs, liquor, or drugs, had sex with them, killed them, and
buried most of the bodies in a crawl-space under his northwest ;Chicago
home. He has been isolated under heavy security for more than 13 months.
The prosecution, which is seeking the death penalty for Gacy, estimates
they will use two weeks topresent their case.
Former employee testifies
against Ford in Pinto trial
WINAMAC, Ind. - Most changes in early model Pintos were merely
cosmetic, a former Ford Motor Co. official said yesterday in testimony for
the prosecution in the Ford reckless homicide trial. Three teenagers were
killed following a rear end crash in which a 1973 Pinto burst into flames.
Harley Copp, a Ford officialwho was forcibly retired after he made
speeches to a trial lawyers' organization and a University of Michigan law
seminar about "the secret of obtaining corporate secrets," was in charge of
crash tests for the automaker.
He testified few major changes were planned by Ford during the Pinto's
10-year life cycle, but one of them was reducing the thickness of the upper
head of the Pinto gas tank by 27 per cent.
Boy frees self after kidnap
DETROIT - A seven-year-old Detroit boy was kidnapped on his way to
school yesterday and freed himself 12 hours later. Police and FBI agents
were questioning an unidentified man in the abduction of Hessley James
Hempstead II, who was found in an east side home at about 6:30 p.m.
A $50,000 ransom was dropped off in an alley on the city's northwest side,
several miles from the boy's home and the Detroit Bank and Trust Co. bran-
ch where his mother is branch manager, according to officials. The money
was not picked up.
