*inO T.,
Mike McGee's subpar (6-for-20)
shooting performance and a 24-point
scoring display by Purdue guard Drake
Morris added up to a probable NIT bid
for Michigan yesterday, as the
Wolverines fell to the Boilermakers in
overtime, 67-61. The defeat put to rest
any Michigan (8-10 in the Big Ten, 17-10
overall) aspirations for an NCAA tour-
nament invitation.
"I'll be honest with you," said a
pessimistic Bill Frieder. "I don't really
know if we're going to get it (an NIT
bid). I think we deserve it, and it's the
kind of tournament that these kids
would do well in."
MORRIS MADE sure that the
Wolverines bid adieu to their NCAA
hopes by notching six of his game-high
total in the overtime to pull Purdue out
in front for good.
The Boilermakers' tight zone defense
forced Michigan to shoot most of its
shots in the overtime session from the
perimeter - and few of them fell.
Senior guard Mark Bodnar did
manage to can a 17-foot jumper to cut
the Purdue lead to 57-55 at one point,
and the sellout crowd of 13,609 rose
noisily to its feet, anticipating the
Wolverines' fifth overtime victory this.
season in as many sessions.
BUT PURDUE'S Morris and Brian
Walker kept the ball away from
Wolverine hands as time ran down and
forced Michigan to foul. The Boiler-
maker backcourt pair coolly converted
the one-and-one situations to wrap up
the victory and set Purdue up for strong
NCAA consideration with a 10-8 fourth-
* place Big Ten finish.
Purdue set up the overtime when it
gained possession of the ball with 1:10
remaining and ran the clock down to
0:17 before coach Gene Keady called a
timeout to prepare his team for one
final shot. The Boilermakers worked
the ball around for 13 seconds, and
guard Kevin Stallings popped a 20-
footer. The ball bounced off the rim and
into forward Keith Edmonson's grasp,
who banged home a 10-footer to knot the
score as the buzzer sounded.
"The play was not set for Stallings; it
was meant for Michael (Scearce),"
said Keady. "It just broke down, but
fortunately, we were able to get a
second shot. That's how you win games,
by getting second and third shots."
THE WOLVERINES had trailed
throughout the entire contest until Mar-

From UPI and AP
BOGOTA, Colombia - Guerrillas
shot and killed kidnapped American
Bible translator Chester Bitterman
yesterday after 48 days in captivity,
wrapped his body in a leftist flag, and
left it in an abandoned bus.
Police reported they found the body
of the 28-year-old Lancaster, Pa. native
at 4:30 a.m. in an industrial-residential
neighborhood of Bogota six hours after,
the M-19 guerrilla group offered its
"last chance" to bargain for Bitter-
man's life..
M-19 had accused Bitterman of being
a CIA spy and demanded as the price
for his life that the institute he worked
for leave Colombia. The Summer In-
stitute of Linguistics, which translates
the Bible into Indian dialects, refused to
do so.
IN WASHINGTON, Secretary of
State Alexander Haig, Jr., issued a
statement saying, "The barbaric mur-
der of Chester Bitterman by terrorists
in Colombia is a despicable and cowar-
dly act which we totally condemn."
The State Department announced
that the U.S. Embassy was making
arrangements for the transfer of the
body. It said Bitterman was in Colom-
bia "as a man of peace and faith and
was innocent of any wrongdoing," and
noted he, worked as a linguist under
contract to the government of Colom-

Bitterman was shot once in the head,
according to the Bogota police chief,
Gen. Luis Eduardo Castillo.
THE EXECUTION was carried out a
few hours after ransom talks broke off
between the guerrilla kidnappers and
the Summer Institute of Linguistics, for
which Bitterman was one of more than
100 foreign volunteers who teach the
Bible to remote Indian tribes.
The kidnappers phoned police and
local news media at 5:40 a.m.-EST to
report they had left Bitterman's body in
a bus abandoned in a residential area of
southwest Bogota.
Police found bus driver Andres Zan-
brano bound and blindfolded beside the
body of Bitterman, who was wrapped in
a red, white and blue M-19 flag.
The kidnappers had said in com-
muniques issued since Bitterman was
abducted Jan. 19 in Bogota - where he
was said to have gone from the Indian
village where he worked for treatment
of a gall bladder attack - that they
were renegade members of the M-19.
The group, Colombia's most feared
urban guerrilla organization, was
responsible -for the two-month-long
seizure last year of more than a dozen
diplomats at the embassy of the
Dominican Republic in Bogota. U.S.
Ambassador Diego Asencio was among
those held.

Making rounds
Although incoming freshpersons may not request Mary
Markley over Mosher-Jordan, at least one pizza delivery
man prefers it to any other dorm.
It's not because Markley customers are bigger tippers
than anyone else; the dorm does have one attribute: ac-
cessible parking for pizza cars.
A FRIDAY NIGHT can mean 70-80 deliveries for pizza
delivery man Andre Adair. And after driving 400 miles a
week for six months without leaving the boundaries of Ann
Arbor, the Cottage Inn driver can tell about the ins and
outs of pizza delivery.
Driving through one of his many Friday night pizza
runs, Adair explained, "delivery to the dorms isn't bad,
but fraternities andisororities are terrible." Fraternity
men "hide in-the attic" when their pizzas arrive, he said
and it takes "20 minutes for their housemates to find
Dorms do have one problem, though. "They (dorm
residents) don't know how .to tip," Adair said. He at-
tributes their thrift to inexperience, rather than poor
manners. Adair earns around $20 to $30 a night on tips.
BUT COMPARED TO house and apartment dwellers,
dorm residents are the most polite, Adair said. "If they're
hungry, they can't just whip up a sandwich." On this par-
ticular Friday night most were cordial to the man who
came to rescue them from famine.
West side residential consumers can afford to remain
cool and aloof if the pizza does not meet their satisfaction,
Adair explained. If they refuse a late pizza, they will still

on Friday night
eat dinner. Suburb delivery through winding, icy, dark
roads is more treacherous than campus delivery, but
brings Adair the biggest tips. "Families order large piz-
zas for dinner," he said.
Not every customer expresses immense gratitude when
Adair arrives with the pizza. Even his robust, six-foot
frame quivers as a famished apartment resident shrieks,
"Well, it's about time, isn't it?"
ADAIR HANDLES irrate customers rationally. "Don't
let them feed you a line-make entry as simple as
possible." Adair apologized and explained that he
delivered the pizza as quickly as possible.
There are friendly faces, however, to compensate for
the hostile ones. One customer graciously accepted the
pizza with more than a tip in return. "Hey, thanks for the
pizza, want a bong hit?" Adair declined.
Cottage Inn's steady customers-late shift University
hospital employees and Sunday night "too much
homework to cook" munchers-make delivery less of a
chore, Adair said. Adair put his wad of money in hisj
mouth as he got change for a familiar doctor. "You
wouldn't put money in your mouth if you knew where I've
seen it!" the doctor warned.
On his eight-hour shift, Adair drives a shabby, green '73
Plymouth Brougham. The door lock sticks, the radio plays
static, and the heater blows air sporadically, but Adair
doesn't mind the job.
"I usually work four nights a week, but it depends on my
money situation," the University economics major said.
In addition to tips, the pizza delivery man makes
minimum wage.

Japanese automakers
may reduce exports

DETROIT (UPI) - The Japanese
governnent has reached agreement
with its five leading automakers to
reduce voluntarily the number of autos
exported to the United States, it was
reported yesterday.
Completion and implementation of
the agreement would represent a major
reversal in policy for the Japanese, who
have so far refused to limit exports.
Washington-based sources in the
Japanese auto industry, said Japan's

trade officials have obtained
agreements to limit car and truck ex-
ports to America to about 1.5 million
vehicles this year.
The figure would be 400,000 vehicles,
or about 20 percent, less than the record
1.9 million imported last year.
Further, the sources said, the
Japanese would be willing to negotiate
limits on 1982 exports as well if the
U.S. car market remains sluggish.

Shapiro's China visit to open doors for 'U'

University President Harold Shapiro will visit
the People's Republic of China in May to discuss
the possibility of establishing scholarly ex-
change agreements between the Chinese gover-
nment and the University.
Exchange agreements could mean increased
research opportunities for both the University
and China and would make it easier for more
University students and faculty to study in
SHAPIRO AND HIS wife Vivian will be among
five or six in the "official party" which will visit
China from May 5 to May 16. They will be guests
of the Chinese Ministry of Education.
Also going on the trip will be Political Science
Prof. Michel Oksenberg, a member of former
President Carter's National Security Council. In
addition, Shapiro expects to be accompanied by
representatives from LSA, the College of
Engineering, and the Business School. "We
need expertise in different areas," Shapiro said,
to make a good assessment of opportunities

available for exchange.
OKSENBERG, WHO heads the University's
committee on coordinating student/faculty ex-
change programs with China, estimated that the
travel expenses for the group will be $10,000 to
$15,000. Other expenses will be paid by the
Chinese government.
The cost of the trip wil not come out of the
University's general fund, but will be paid by gif-
ts and/or foundation grants, Shapiro said. He
added that his wife will pay her own expenses.
At least one member of the University com-
munity criticized the trip in light of the Univer-
sity's current financial woes.
"WHEN IT COMES time for a raise, they
claim they don't have any money," complained
Helen Poston, a University employee. "His trip
should be paid out of his salary."
Shapiro responded to this criticism by saying
that the group will not be using University funds,
and that even in more difficult times the Univer-

Down sizing
F YOU THINK the cars coming out of Detroit
'have been small, you haven't seen the latest Japanese
models. The hottest selling cars in Japan today are
"minicars" less than 5 feet wide and 11 feet long. The
minicar, which has been on the market in Tokyo for several
years, is smaller than a Volkswagen Beetle, and weighs
more than 300 pounds less than the smallest Japanese im-
port sold in the United States. So what makes the car so
popular? Its fuel efficiency-55 miles per gallon. The

keeps the nose passages clear, but for shorter and shorter
periods. The result is a congested, runny nose caused by the

yet, stay away from nasal sprays in the first place. Hot

Hiccup happy
There is no such thing as a cure for hiccups. At least
that's what Eddie Bruce of Miami, Fla. contends. Bruce
has been hiccuping as much as 35 times a minute for the
past 15 months and he's about ready to turn to the black ar-
ts. The 65-year-old retiree said Friday he's tried everything
else. Bruce said he has spent thousands of dollars seeking
treatment-breathed into a paper bag, stuck a spoon down

Dog gone-it
Soon after Eric Nelson's van had been the object of
several theft attempts, he decided to buy a watch dog. The
next time Nelson, of New Orleans,visited the city, he
locked a vicious bull terrier in the back. Someone stole the
van anyway, but, according to Nelson, the thief could be in
for a big surprise. "That dog is seriously mean," he said. So
far, neither thief, dog, or van has turned up. O
