LS&A Student Government is holding interviews for:

1 seat on the LS&A Student Government Council.
1 seat on the Michigan Student Assembly.
Interviews will be held Monday, Jan. 26.

Hopwood manuscripts are read by
two judges in each category who then
rank them in order of preference, ac-
cording to Hopwood Program Coor-
dinator Anrea Beauchamp. Judges are
usually University English professors
who are not currently teaching a
writing class, she added.
Before the ceremony, Brooks chatted
with aspiring poets and prose writers
who came to have coffee with her. She
answered questions and talked about
the role of the black poet, the current
forms that prose and poetry are taking,
and the craft of writing in general.
Brooks deplored what she saw as 'a
cheapening of the language."
"Journalism is getting shabbier and
shabbier," she said. "Fiction writers
seem to think that if they have a little
sprinkling of sex, well, then that's all
that's necessary. I think Tom Wolfe is
doing the best with new journalism."
Brooks, who holds 40 honorary doc-
torate degrees, is best known for her
poems "The Riot" and "The Tiger Who
Wore White Gloves." A Poet Laureate
of Illinois, she has authored 15 books
and is a recipient of the Shelley
Memorial Award.

WASHINGTON (AP)-A former Nazi
death camp guard who has lived in this
country for 31 years must be stripped of
his U.S. citizenship the Supreme Court
ruled yesterday.
By a 7-2 vote, the justices said 73-
year-old Feodor Fedorenko "illegally
procured" his U.S. citizenship in 1979
because he lied to immigration officials
when entering the country in 1949.
THE FEDERAL government now
can strip Fedorenko of his citizenship
and move to deport him.
The court's decision made clear that
even if government prosecutors did not
think it necessary to take away
Fedorenko's citizenship, the Im-
migration and Nationality Act demands

Returnees tell stories of
torture during captivity

From United Press International
Stories of beatings, deprivation and
mental torture began to emerge from
the freed American hostages yesterday
in phone calls to their families.
The details were sketchy, described
in emotional tones by loved ones who
tried to recall everything said in phone
calls a half a world away after 14 mon-
ths of agonized waiting.
IN ONE OF the calls from Wiesbaden,
West Germany, former economic and
commercial officer Malcolm Kalp, 42,
told his brother and sister-in-law he had
been beaten and put in solitary con-
finement for between 150 and 170 days

because of his attempts to escape the
American Embassy in Iran.
"He told us he had tried to escape
several times," said Linda Kalp in
Brocton, Mass., the wife of Kalp's
brother Richard.
"That sounded like him," she said.
"We knew that if anyone didn't
cooperate with him he wouldn't
cooperate either. We knew he was a
tough guy and he wasn't going to take
anything lying down," she said.
MARINE SGT. Johnny McKeel told
his mother, Wynona, of Balch Springs,
Texas, that his captors said she was
dead in an effort to get him to

cooperate. He kept asking about the
family, wanting to be sure everybody
was all right," she said. "They told him
I was dead when they interrogated him.
"They told him they'd let him come
home if he talked to them. They Only
gave him three of our letters," she skid.
"They even took away his watch and
his billfold, so he'd be confused, so.he
wouldn't know what time it was." .
Donald Cooke, vice consul at the km-
bassy, told his parents, Ernest and
Susan Cooke of Mamphis, Tenn., that
he spent most of the year in a prison
near the Caspian Sea after the faIled
rescue attempt in April.

Fraud found in cancer research

NEW YORK (AP) - A medical
researcher who admitted faking some
data also reported growing human can-
cer cells which have now proved to be
monkey cells, scientists say in an ar-
ticle to be published today.
The article in the British scientific
journal Nature throws a new cloud over
the work of Dr. John Long. Scientists
said the incident may have slowed

a lymph system cancer that strikes
7,100 Americans and causes 1,700 death
a year.

Long's work said there was no eyidence
