Theta Chi
ehustles for
heart fund

By ANNETTE STARON
How many bounces does it take to get from Ann Ar-
bor to East Lansing when it's 17 degrees outside?
Thirty-two members of the Theta Chi fraternity
had a chance to find out last night. They're in the por-
cess of dribbling a basketball from Crisler Arena to
Jenison Field House at Michigan State University in
an attempt to raise money for the American Heart
Association.
Wearing "anything they can find to keep warm"
the fraternity brothers started dribbling last night at
6:30, Chapter Treasurer Jim Bokshan said. They
hope to make it to East Lansing in time'for today's
MSU-Michigan basketball game's 1 p.m. tipoff.

Protected by a car in front of them and a van
behind, each dribbler bounces a ball for one mile. Six
members rotate on each shift and continue until each
person has completed two miles. Then another new
van of fresh, alert Theta Chis replaces them.
The men have been preparing for the event for the
past two weeks, Steve: Noskin, the originator of the
fund raiser said. The group hopes to raise $2,000, he
added.
"The house has wanted to do something for charity
for about a year," Bokshan said.
Despite their frigid run, the dribblers don't have
tickets to the basketball game, which was sold out
three weeks ago. However, they were offered stan-
ding room for free.

Woodcock acceptsAI ' U'
offer to teach in fall

Jules

Verne lives

By LINDA RUECKERT
Former United Auto Workers
President and U.S. Ambassador to
China Leonard Woodcock has accepted
an offer to teach at the University,
University President Harold Shapiro
said yesterday.
Woodcock, who received an honorary
doctorate of laws from the University in
1977, will most likely begin teaching in
the fall, Shapiro said.
RECENTLY, Shapiro wrote Wood-
cock and offered him a visiting
professorship at the University.
Although final arrangements have not
been made, Shapiro said Woodcock
may teach antd do research primarily in
the political science department and
also participate in programs within the
Law School, Center for Chinese Studies,
and Office of Transportation Research.
"The University considers you a
'native son' whose distinguished record
on behalf of your country has benefited
us all," Shapiro wrote to Woodcock.
Acting Chairman of Political Science
Harold Jacobson said he is "very
pleased" about Woodcock's appoin-
tment.

Non-stop
By the Associated Press
The balloon Jules Verne was floating
over Pakistan last night, expected to
reach New Delhi, India, by morning
and was "very much on target" for its
round-the-world journey, trackers
reported.
The two aeronauts, reached by a
direct radio linkup at 5 p.m. EST, said
they were about four hours outside
Karachi and should reach New Delhi by
5 a.m. Saturday, reported Dee
Schelling, a spokeswoman for the Bed-
ford, Mass., tracking station aiding the

round-world balloon on course

effort.
THE TWO adventurers, Maxie An-
derson of Albuquerque, N.M., and Don
Ida of Boulder, Colo., took off Thursday
from Luxor, Egypt, in a 20-story-high
balloon. They are trying to complete
the first nonstop, manned balloon flight
around the world.
Schelling discounted a report
from one of the balloonists at midnight
Thursday that the voyage may have to
be abandoned because the balloon was
leaking.
"Maxie said today he wasn't sure

that he even had a leak. And if there is
one, he said it is down low in a position
where it wouldn't create that much of a
problem," she said.
"THEY'RE ON A good trajectory
right now and very much on target for
what we had projected," she said.
"They're staying at about 22,800 feet,
traveling at 70 miles an hour. It's cold
outside the gondola, though - minus 22
degrees Fahrenheit."
Anderson, of Albuquerque, N.M., and
Ida, of Boulder, Colo., lifted off Thur-
sday from' the resort city of Luxor,

Egypt for what they anticipated would
be a 10-day, non-stop flight.
Anderson, a mining-investment
executive, piloted the Double Eagle II
from Canada to France in 1978 in the
first trans-Atlantic manned balloon
flight. Last year, he and son Kris
claimed the first crossing of North
America in the balloon Kitty Hawk.
The balloon is named for the 19-th
century French writer whose fictional
hero Phileas Fogg went around .the
world in 88 days.

Reagan plan may kill

gun contro
WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal
agency that enforces gun controls
would be radically reduced or abolished
under the Reagan administration's
deregulation and budget cutting plans.
Any such action undermining tier
Treasury Department's Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms would
be a big victory for "New Right" con-
servative supporters of President
Reagan, and for the National Rifle
Association, which has tried for years
to accomplish the same thing through
legislation.
HAMSTRINGING the bureau would
be one of Reagan's first major con-
cessions to his conservative allies, in-
cluding the anti-gun control forces
which spent heavily in support of his
election.
The bureau has been under fire from
other quarters as well, stemming from
charges of arbitrary or violent in-
vestigative and arrest tactics against
some of its agents.
Proposals under study would transfer
some functions of the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to other
agencies and possibly eliminate the
agency's gun control enforcement. The
agency's current budget totals $151
million annually.
FEDERAL LAW requires licensing of
gun manufacturers, importers and
de lers. Persons buying guns must fill
out forms giving their names and ad-
dresses.
The law prohibits sale of firearms to
such persons as convicted criminals,
fugitives from justice, unlawful users of
narcotics, and to insane or mentally in-
competent persons.
Repeated efforts 'in Congress to
repeal the law have failed, but the
latest move by the Office of
Management and Budget could accom-
plish essentially the same thing through
the budget process and executive
reorganization.
WORD OF THE impending changes

0MB by way of the Treasury Depar-
tment. Bureau officials were briefed on
the reports.
"We have been told unofficially that
there will be some large cuts, both in
people reduction and program reduc-
tion, and possibly even dismantling the
bureau," one agency official said.
It was unclear from the reports exac-
tly what would happen to the bureau's
responsibilities on firearms, but the
consensus was there would be no enfor-
cement agency left.
The bureau's jurisdiction over arson
and explosives case would be tran-
sferred to the Justice Department and
handled as other criminal cases are.
"We were told the functions that
would be eliminated or stopped,
whatever word you choose, would be
firearms, tobacco and arson, which is
pretty much our whole criminal enfor
cement function," one bureau official
said. "It's practically everything we
do."
