But violence marred the ordinarily
peaceful event. An apparent stabbing
took place around 4:00 yesterday after-
noon, according to Lt. Eddie Owens of

knives and clubs ran out of an alley
near the corner of State and William
Streets. They were followed 30 seconds
later by a blood-soaked youth. who

Building, where he stumbled and yelled
for help. He was taken to a local
hospital. Police confirmed that another
person was injured in the incident with
facial cuts, but details at press time
were sketchy.
A UNIVERSITY student senior, John
Lucas, yesterday charged the police hit
him "three times, knocking out my
tooth," after another incident earlier in
the 'afternoon. Lucas claimed he was
apprehended by police approximately
3:15 p.m. for possession of marijuana,
which he denied he had.
After being handcuffed and given a

ticket, a police officer allegedly told
him to "get your smart ass out of here,"
and Lucas spat on the ground. The of-
ficer then slammed Lucas against' a
trunk of a car, according to Lucas, and
began to punch him.
LUCAS SAID that several officers at-

Future of 'OSHA debated
before Senate committee
WASHINGTON - The Carter administration and labor leaders yester-
day battled over proposed legislation which would significantly curb the en-
forcement authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
The administration and the AFL-CIO contend that OSHA has prevented
thousands of deaths and injuries. But business leaders believe the nine-year-
old OSHA has been anathema to the business community, which claims the
agency afflicts them with "nit-picking" rules.
The proposed bill, before the Senate Labor and Human Resources
Committee, would exempt an estimated 90 per cent of the nation's work
places from routine safety inspections.

LANSING - Michigan Bell Telephone Co. customers' monthly bills will
go up an average 10 per cent under a $46 million rate hike approved by the
state Public Service Commission yesterday.
The increase is in addition to a $41.2 million increase granted the utility
last June, giving Bell a total hike of $87.2 million. Bell had asked for $146
million in December 1978. Under the order, residential customers will pay 10
to 15 per cent more for basic service, depending 9n the size of their com-
munity. Long distance rates within the state will go up from the much-touted
"nickel a minute" to six cents. Long distance rates outside Michigan are not
U.S. dollar shows strength
LONDON - The U.S. dollar made a strong comeback yesterday on
foreign exchange markets, finishing at its highest mark in months against
several major European currencies.
The dollar's continued five-week boom brought it to its highest point in
almost two years against the currencies, although the U.S. currency was
still 15 to 25 per cent below levels of mid-1977, when declining confidence
abroad began eroding the dollar's value. Many experts in Britain and on the
European continent have said the upturn will last only as long as interest
rates stay high.
Australian fossil find
indicates earlylife
LOS ANGELES - A cabbage-shaped rock from Australia apparently
holds the oldest fossils ever found - the remains of bacteria that lived three
and one-half billion years ago, according to a scientist working at UCLA.
"I'm confident it's a good fossil structure," said Malcolm Walter of the
Australian Bureau of Mineral Resources. "It is the earliest convincing
evidence of life." The evidence in the rock is a series of thin, wavy layers
piled one atop the other. Each layer, Walter said yesterday, represents a
colony of organisms that lived and died barely a billion years after the earth
was formed.
Colorado ranchers continue
to battle snowstorms
DENVER - Ranchers battled huge drifts in an effort to save freezing
cattle from snow and prowling coyotes as the eastern third of Colorado
remained isolated yesterday by a chain of storms that knocked out power to
about 3,000 households.
Parts of Colorado were completely isolated by the storm. Ranchers and
farmers had to look to their neighbors for help in digging out and getting
ready for what forecasters said would be another "bad" storm.
Police search for clues
in 'lipstick murder'
DALLAS - Police searched a-$200,000 home yesterday, gathering clues
in the death of a woman whose nude, strangled body was found near a mirror
bearing the words, "Now we are even, Don," printed in lipstick.
Attorney Don Martinson told police he found the body of his wife, Debra,
28, when he returned home from work Monday night. Nothing in the
house was stolen or broken, and police said there was no evidence of force
entry. After an autopsy yesterday, the Dallas County Medical Examine
Office ruled that strangulation was the cause of death.
