Ticker tape greets former hostages in New York
From AP and UPI
They tied a yellow ribbon round old New York yesterday as
an estimated 2 million people turned out to cheer America's
liberated hostages in an exuberant ticker-tape parade up
From rooftops and balconies, office building and apart
tment windows, sidewalks and street corners, the crowds
roared an enthusiastic welcome to the returned hostages,
who were released in Tehran 10 days ago.
A BLIZZARD OF paper-almost 5,000 tons of ticker-tape
and confetti-swirled down upon 22 of the original 52 hostages
and their families as they moved up the canyons of lower
Broadway from the Battery to City Hall in the chilly 31-
The guests of honor, riding in 19 limosines amid brass ban-
ds, swirling bagpipers and smiling politicians waved and
yelled their thanks to the flag-waving crowd.
"Not even in my wildest imagination did I expect this,"
said Kathryn Koob, 43, of Fairfax, Va., one of the two women
among the 22 former hostages who rode in the paper blizzard.
BARRY ROSEN of Brooklyn, the only New York City
resident among the former prisoners of Iran, declared, "I am
a hometown boy but this flabbergasts me. I saw many ticker
tape parades growing up in New York, but this one is the
The turnout was in the roaring, joyous mood of such bygone
ticker-tape parades as those that welcomed Charles Lin-
dbergh back from his transatlantic solo flight in 1927, Gen.
Douglas MacArthur on his return from Korea in 1951 and
astronaut John Glenn, the first American in orbit, in 1962,
and the spontaneous celebration that followed the announ-
cement of VJ day at the end of World War II.
Mayor Edward Koch gave his guests the keys to the city
during a ceremony at City Hall and said, "Today all of you
belong to New York City and New York City belongs to
you-today and forever."
And everywhere yellow ribbons were displayed. A Bronx
welcoming committee distributed 30,000 yellow lapel rib-
bons. Thousands of other ribbons festooned traffic lights,
trees and lamp posts.

Another Vietnam vet, Adam Legg,.34,

memories of his own return.
"When we came home, everything
was put under the table - it was hid-

Naval expulsion for orgy upheld
BALTIMORE (UPI) - A federal
judge yesterday upheld the expulsion of
a Naval Academy senior who par-
ticipated in and filmed a sex orgy in-
volving five midshipmen including a
woman in the academy's dormitory.
U.S. District Judge Joseph Young
agreed with the secretary of the navy's
decision to expell Midshipman Jamie
Love for having sexual intercourse with
a female classmate last November.
"I WILL NOT compell the Navy to
maintain an unwanted midshipman,"
Love said he was disappointed with
the decision. He was only five months
short of graduation but now will have to
serve three years in the Navy as an
"It's an awful price to pay. I'm
disappointed the Navy didn't look at my
previous record. I had a lot of good days
in those three and a half years," he
LOVE, FROM Arnold, Md., and four
other midshipmen had sexual inter-
course with Mary Lamble last Nov. 22.
Love admitted filming the incident with
a home movie camera.
Three other midshipmen were
disciplined and allowed to stay at the'
academy, while Midshipman Gregory
Doughtery,,who Love filmed having sex
with Miss Lamble, also was ordered
expelled. Doughtery is fighting the ex-
pulsion in U.S.. District Court in
Lamble, 21, was permitted to resign.
Love's attorney, John Miles, argued
his client was denied due process of law
when he was expelled.

M MAKES UP FOR EARLIER LOSS:
Grapplers take Sta
By JOHN KERR
With a partisan crowd roaring its approval, the
Michigan wrestlers team captured their fourth
straight dual meet and avenged an earlier defeat by
trouncing 18th-ranked Michigan State, 26-10.
Senior Pat McKay put the victory on ice with an 8-5'
decision over Mike Potts in the 190-pound weight
'class. McKay ran up a 7-0 lead during the first two
periods and hung on for the victory. That gave the
Wolverines an insurmountable 23-10 lead. Potts had
defeated McKay 8-7 when the two teams met last
Eric Klasson added Michigan's final three team
points when he decisioned the Spartans Dan Holt by a
5-3 tally. Klasson, the defending Big Ten champion,
rode the 6-9, 330 pound Holt for all but four seconds of
the second period. HE then wrapped up the victory by
escaping from the Spartan behemoth late in the final
period. The victory was especially sweet for Klasson
- he, too, had lost to the same Spartan opponent the
last time the Wolverines tangled with their ar-
Michigan coach Dale Bahr said he was especially
proud of the team, adding that they were "much
fresher psychologically and physically" this meet
than in the earlier match, in which the Spartans
upended Michigan, 18-16.
"We're starting to come on," said Bahr, "and this
(the end of the year) is the time to do it."
The Wolverines started the night out with a bang
when freshman 118-poinder Joe McFarland upped his
individual record to 20-5-1 when he pinned State's Jim
Hathaway at the 4:51 mark.
Jim Mathias kept the ball rolling with a 7-5 victory
in the 126-pound weight class. Mathias, his forehead
bleeding throughout the match, led 5-1 with just un-
der two minutes remaining. State's Tony Uhlmann,
looking for his first win of the season, garnered two
escapes and a takedown, but it wasn't enough to stop
McKay from earning his tenth victory of the year.
The Spartans then made the match closer when
Ron Cantini overcame a 4-2 deficit in the final stanza
and decisioned Michigan's 134-pounder, Bill Goodill.
Goodill trailed 7-6l with just 35 seconds remaining
whenhe madeda last ditch effort for a takedown. The
move backfired, however, when he was taken down
instead and consequently was defeated, 12-6.
AT 142 pounds, Michigan State's Shawn White
narrowed the Wolverine lead even further by scoring
an 11-7 victory over Mark Pearson. Pearson drew
within two points of White late in the final period, but
White hung on to win.
Michigan's Tim Fagan and Nemir Nadhir ended
the Spartan threat by walloping their opponents in
the 150- and 158-pound weight classes, respectively.
Fagan scored a superior decision over Spartan Kurt
Beinlich with a 18-4 win, arid Nadhir defeated Scott
Then came the match which Bahr described as the
key to the meet. With Michigan leading 17-6 in the
team score, 167-pounder Steve Pierce squeezed by
Michigan State's Jeff Layer by the score of 3-2. With
Layer leading 2-1 and only 22 seconds remaining,
Pierce was awarded one point when Layer was pen-
alized for stalling. Layer was then penalized again
when he moved too soon out of the starting position.
The two points were enough to give Pierce the 3-2
decision and dampen any Spartan hopes of a rally.

TEST PREPARATION CENTERS
Although we have been in the test preparation business for
many years, we are new in the Ann Arbor area. We are
convinced we have the finest test preparation course available -
superior instructors, superior materials and superior teaching
methods. But we have found that students tend to patronize the
old 'stand-by' because they have heard the name around. We
would like to have the chance to prove we are better; to become
known as the quality test preparation service in Ann Arbor. We
are therefore willing to take a chance. On any course offered
between now and june, 1981, we offer the following guarantee:
- If you feel that we promised anything we did not deliver, or
- If you feel our course materials are not up-to-date and reflec-
tive of the questions presented on the test, or
- If you are unhappy with the score on the examination (unless
that score is over the national average), then
- Sexton will refund your tuition or continue to help prepare
you for future tests without any additional charge.
