From UPIland AP
Rep. John Jenrette (D-S.C.), convicted on an Abscam
bribery charge, announced his immediate resignation from
J e I Congress yesterday, thus preventing an expected House vote
to expel him during the final days of his term.
The third-term congressman announced his resignation at
the end of 45 minutes of testimony in his own defense in the
House ethics committee, which was trying to rush House ac-
tion before Congress adjourns.
"WITH THE DESIRE to spare this House.. . from further
* * eembarrassment, I'm submitting to the speaker my
resignation," Jenrette said, pausing as his voice choked.
"I do this with pain that none of you can ever know."
A prolonged ethics investigation, which had already
resulted in a committee finding of guilt, will end today at a
meeting called to decide what to report to the House.
JENRE TTE SAID he is resigning to devote full time to
preparation for a hearing next Wednesday before U.S.
District Judge William B. Bryant on his motion to set aside
a etion his conviction.
Seated with elbows on the witness table, frequently ap-
pearing to be close to tears, Jenrette predicted Bryant will
set apide the verdict on grounds the prosecution violated his

due process rights in staging the sting.
But that will be too late to salvage his final days in
Congress, as Jenrette pointed out. He was defeated for re-
election, an event he blames on the Abscam conviction.
JENRETTE AND John Stowe, a former South Carolina
millionaire whom Jenrette described as now "not worth two
nickels," were convicted in October of accepting a $25,000
bribe from undercover FBI agents in their Abscam sting.
FBI videotapes taken in a Washington townhouse showed
Jenrette and Stowe dealing with agents posing as represen-
tatives of an Arab sheik willing to pay for special legislation
to allow him to enter this country.
"I made the mistake of going to that townhouse in the
drunken condition I was in," Jenrette said. "I will have to
live with that the rest of my life."
AFTER THE HEARING, Jenrette told reporters he draf-
ted his resignation statement 2 hours before he announced
it to the committee, but held back so he could "see how things
were going."
"I could not hold up another two days," Jenrette said. "So
I'd rather just go ahead and do it without putting the House
into that further predicament."
"I hope to come back some day," he said.

If you have Used Books
to Sell-Read This!

,t p
.Y //j1

As the Semester end approaches - bring ing with it a period of heavy
book selling by students- ULRICH'S would like to review with you their
Used books fall into several categories, each of which - because of the
law of supply and demand - has its own price tag. Let's explore these
various categories for your guidance.
A textbook of current copyright - used on our campus -and which the
Teaching Department involved has approved for re-use in upcoming
semesters- has the highest market value. If ULRICH'S needs copies
of this book we will offer a minimum of 50% off the list price for copies
in good physical condition. When we have sufficient stock of a title
for thecoming semester, ULRICH'S will offer a"WHOLESALE PRICE"
which will be explained later in this article. (THIS IS ONE REASON
Paperback are classified in two groups: A. Text Paperbacks; B. Trade
A. Text Paperbacks will be purchased from you as Class I books above.
B. Trade Paperbacks would draw an approximate offer of 25% of the
list price when in excellent condition.
Some-of the above Class I or Class I books will be offered which have
torn bindings, loose pages, large amounts of highlighting and under-
lining, or other physical defects. These will be priced down according
to the estimated cost of repair or saleability.

An editorial denouncing Communist
Workers' Party members' refusal to
participate in the recent Greensboro,
N.C. trial of six members of the Ku
Klux Klan and the American Nazi Par-
ty spurred the coalition's formation, a
spokesman said.
"The formation of the committee was
precipitated by the publication of an
editorial in the South End .:. blaming
leftists for racial violence," committee
spokesman Carl Watson said, calling
the editorial the "culmination of an
editorial policy that has been pursued
over the past few months, (making the
newspaper's editorial page) inac-
cessible to the student population."
"SO, YOU have a paper that pursues
a reactionary editorial policy and
students have no access to it," Watson
continued. "The point is that there is no
way for a student on this campus to
voice an opinion (in the newspaper)."
Watson said the dismissal of the two
editors, Burnett and Managing Editor
Mike Nuttle, who wrote the Greensboro
editorial, would probably make the
newspaper's editorial page more
responsive to student opinion.
THE COMMITTEE also sought the
endorsement of the Michigan Student
Assembly during the University gover-
nment's meeting Tuesday night.
Although the Assembly wold not 'of-
ficially endorse the committee, eight
MSA members signed- petitions, in-
cluding President Marc Breakstone.
"I know that the editorial policy of
the newspaper has been consistently
reactionary," Breakstone said, adding
that he supported the ouster of the
students because of the editor's "policy
of not allowing an open forum for the
discussion of issues."
Watson said a rally demanding the
ouster of the editors was held yesterday
on the WSU campus and said he expects
the Board of Governors to comply with
their requests.
"The campaign (to dismiss the
editors) has gone very well," Watson
said. "And I certainly think that the
pressure is building," Watson said. "I
think the outlook is good."
Although the WSU Board of Gover-
nors and the WSU Student Newspaper
Publications Board do not have any
control over the editorial policies of the
South End, the two administrative
bodies do have the authority to remove
South End staff members.
"We perceive Burnett and Nuttle to
be the obstacles to free speech on this
campus," Lisa Terwilliger, another
committee member, said. "One of the
reasons the petitions have been so suc-
cessful is that Wayne State is a
predominantly labor and black univer-
sity in a predominantly labor and black

Senate leaves busing
question to new Congress
WASHINGTON-A measure to prohibit the government from seeking
court-ordered busing in school desegregation cases was rejected by the
Senate yesterday with both supporters and opponents arguing that the issue
should be decided by a new Congress and a new president.
Acting by voice vote, the Senate stripped the anti-busing proposal from a
stopgap spending measure to which it had been attached as an amendment.
A similar amendment attached to a bill already passed by Congress is on
President Carter's desk. He is expected to veto it.
Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.) moved to strike the busing rider from the
stopgap spending bill, saying, "Everybody knows we will have an oppor-
tunity in the future to resolve this issue once and for all. We are in a standoff
and the matter is best left that way for the time being."
Sniper on bridge attacks
commuters; no injuries reported
NEW ORLEANS-A gunman with a high-powered rifle opened fire on
rush-hour commuters yesterday, shutting down the major bridge connecting
New Orleans with crowded suburbs across the Mississippi River, police said.
No injuries were reported but many motorists were stranded as police
shut off traffic to the Greater New Orleans Mississippi River Bridge.
Authorities, who called in a SWAT team, said the shots apparently were
coming from a nearby high-rise housing project.
"We're drawing fire is how we know. They're shooting at anything that
moves," said a 4th District police officer who would not identify himself.
Ugandans hold elections
KAMPALA, Uganda-Nearly 5 million Ugandans, eager for a new gover-
nment after a decade of dictorship and turmoil, started voting yesterday in a
chaotic climax to the first national elections in 18 years.
Former President Milton Obote, ousted in 1971 by dictator Idi Amin, was
attempting a political comeback. His Uganda People's Congress was
favored over the Roman Catholic-based Democratic Party in an apparently
close race.
Voting was extended to a second day because of a heavy turnout and
delays of many hours in equipping polling stations. Election officials an-
nounced that polls would be open again today and vote counting was to start
after polls closed today.
Chinese official under fire
PEKING-Chinese Communist Party chairman Hua Goufeng is likely to*
be criticized by the full Central Committee before the end of the year as a
prelude to his eventual resignation or demotion, diplomatic sources said
, The sources, who declined to be identified, said Hua is expected. to be
castigated in an internal party document circulated at a meeting of the Cen'
tral Committee, possibly as early as Dec. 25.
The sources speculated that Hua would resign as chairman of the party
and perhaps become a vice chairman at the next party congress, possibly in
May or June. They said China might limit the current life-tenure of the party
chairman and adopt a rotating system of chairmanship.
Woman files suit against;
tampon manufacturers
GRAND RAPIDS-A woman filed Michigan's second toxic shock syn-
drome suit yesterday, claiming negligence by the makers of Tampax and
Rely tampons and a grocery store caused her to contract the sometimes
fatal disease.
Debbie Kaminski, 22, said she filed the suit in an attempt to collect
damages to pay the medical bill incurred when she was hospitalized in inten-
sive care for two weeks in late September.
"We didn't have medical insurance when I became ill and we hope the
company, at least, can pay the hospital bills," the Kent City woman said. She
said her husband was laid off from his job at General Motors Corp. when she
was stricken with toxic shock syndrome.
Transition official suggests
decentralization of VA
LOS ANGELES-The massive Veterans Administration should be decen-
tralized and about 7,000 beds should be added to its hospitals, the head of
Ronald Reagan's transition team on veterans said yesterday.
William Ayres, who served in Congress 20 years ad is chairman of
Reagan's task force on veterans, said the team's official report will not be
released until Dec. 22.

During the campaign, Reagan proposed increasing VA educational
benefits as an incentive for militarv enlistment. Avers said the transition
team believes any increase should be placed in the annual budget of the
Defense Department, not the VA, because the benefits would be a recruit-
ment tool.

Each semester various professors decide to change text for a given
course. These decisions on change of textbooks are made in echelons
of THINKING AND AUTHORITY far above the level of your local book retailers, AND ULRICH'S
HAS NO PART IN THE DECISION. (Quite often we have MANY copies of the old title of which
you have only ONE.)
However, ULRICH'S does enter the picture by having connections with over 600 other bookstores
throughout the country. We advertise these discontinued books and sell many of them at schools
where they are still being used. ULRICH'S does this as a service to you and pays you the BEST
POSSIBLE price wheryou sell them to us with your currently used books.
Authors and publishers frequently bring out new editions. When we "get caught" with an old
edition, let's accept the fact that it has no value on the wholesale market, and put it on the shelf
as a reference book or sell it cheap for a bargain reference book.
You will find that you come out best in the long run when you sell ALL your books to ULRICH'S.
