76-GUIDE, police battle hearsay
By MAUREEN FLEMING
RUMOR: Another woman was found stabbed to death
early Saturday morning around State St. and Industrial. A
University student saw the woman's body and therefore
knew the murder to be true. Since the police never released
any information about the murder, they must be covering it
FACT: Cecil Richards was dragged underneath a car for
a mile, beginning at State St. and Eisenhower Parkway and
ending at State St. and Industrial. He is still in critical con-
dition at University Hospital. Richards was the body the
University student saw. Police are not covering up another
murder because another murder did not occur.
RUMOR: A flyer published by some students in the East
Quad Residence Hall said, "All I know is the stabbings
usually happened late at night, always to women, very near
to central campus (no exact locations), and the women
were walking alone."
. FACT: The three murders all happened early Sunday
morning. All three victims were women, they were walking
alone, and the exact locations have been published by the
Ann Arbor Police Department, the Daily, and the Ann Ar-
bor News. The locations are not within walking distance of
the campus, although the crimes did occur in Ann Arbor.
RUMOR: The women were all stabbed with
RUMOR: The murders have all been committed by a
woman because there has never been rape involved.
RUMOR: Another woman was murdered in the women's
restroom of the Modern Language Building..
The rumor list could go on for pages.
Since the murder of Rebecca Gieer Huff on Sept. 14, the
University campus has abounded with rumors. 76-GUIDE
and Campus Security, along with the Ann Arbor Police
Department, are providing information to concerned
students and residents.
76-GUIDE is a University telephone-oriented service
used for information, referrals, counseling, and rumor con-
Evie Gauthier from Counseling Services said the
telephone service is approximately 10 years old. It had
previously been used as a crisis and general information
Last Friday, following a request from Campus Security,
GUIDE assumed the responsibility of acting as a rumor
control center, Gauthier said.
GUIDE WORKERS call Campus Security every morning
and evening to check on campus security problems of any
type, Gauthier said. She explained that they also will prom-
ptly check any new rumor they hear by calling Campus
Security employees, who then call the Ann Arbor Police
Dave Foulke, manager of Campus Security Services for
the University Housing Division, said he relies on his in-
stincts when checking rumors. "Sometimes I intuitively
don't check on rumors," he explained. He added that it
depends on the timeliness and magnitude of the rumor.
"If I heard a woman was knifed in a University parking
structue an hour earlier I would check on the rumor,"
Foulke explained. "If I heard the same event occurred on
Friday and it is now Tuesday, I would know it was false
because I would have heard from the police or Campus
Security by that time."
ANN ARBOR Police Chief William Corbett has been
trying to dispel the most common rumors: That is, another
murder has occurred.

Special to'The Daily
celebrated his 56th birthday yesterday
campaigning in two Michigan cities hit
hard by unemployment.
"If we can work together, the
American economy will be a full-
employment economy," Carter
promised about 3,500 workers assem-
bled in a parking lot at the Ford Motor
Co. Wayne Plant. "The American
worker will out-work, out-produce,;and
out-compete the workers of any country
on this earth," he said.
After touring the plant, Carter, ac-
companied by Ford Chairman Philip
Caldwell and United Auto Workers
President Douglas Fraser; drove a new
model Ford Escort off the assembly
"THERE IS not a better built, safer,
more durable, or more efficient car
today than these new American
models," Carter said of the compact
Ford's new "World Cars"-the 1981
Ford Escort and Mercury Lynx-
are assembled at the plant. The Escort
will make its public debut-tomorrow.
UAW President Fraser told the crowd
of workers that claims of poor quality in
the American automobile industry are
"out of proportion."
"BUT," he said, "we can do better
and we will do better."
Fraser introduced the President to
the gathering, reminding workers that
they must make an important decision
on Nov. 4.
"Fellow workers and union mem-
bers, you are free, independent and in-
telligent American citizens. In five
weeks I want you to vote with your con-
sciences," Fraser said. "But, for your
own sake and for the sake of your coun-

Iraq offers Iran
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Iraq
declared yesterday it will stop fighting
Iran for four days starting Sunday, but
will return any Iranian fire. The new
Iraqi truce offer follows Iran's rejec-
tion of a U.N. cease-fire call and
renewed air attacks by both sides at the
The Iraqi announcement was made at
the United Nations. Iraqi spokesman
Salah al-Mukhtar said the dates Oct. 5-8
were chosen to allow time for con-
sultations with Iran by the United
Nations and by an Islamic peace
mission headed by President Moham-
med Zia ul-Haq of Pakistan. Al-
Mukhtar said that during the four-day
period, "if military action is taken
against us We will return the fire."
There was no immediate reaction
from.Tehran, but Jamal Shemirani, the.
Iranian charge d'affaires at the United
Nations, said "there can be no such
thing as a unilateral cease-fire." He did
not elaborate, but reiterated that Iraqi
forces should pull back to positions they
held before hostilities broke out.
The unilateral Iraqi declaration
came at a time when the war seemed to
be settling into a stalemate caused by
unexpectedly strong Iranian resistance
to Iraqi armed forces.
The Iraqi move followed President
Abolhassan, Bani-Sadr's rejection of a
U.N. Security Council call for an end to
the war "so long as Iraq is in violation
of our territorial sovereignty." In a.
message to U.N. Secretary-General
Kurt Waldheim, Bani-Sadr said appeals
for a cease-fire "cannot be considered
by our government" and there is "no
use in any discussion, directly or in-
The Iranian.rejection came just hous,
after Zia reported to the U.N. on his
failed peace mission to Baghdad and
While he did not admit to failure, Zia
made it clear in an address to the
General Assembly that he had no suc-
cess to report either.
Zia's mission had been the United
Nation's main hope of winning Iran's
agreement to the Security Council's
call for a cease-fire.
While the United Nations was
awaiting Iran's formal reply to the
truce appeal, Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini himself made it clear in
Tehran that Iran intended to continue
fighting. In a nation-wide broadcast
Tuesday, he also rejected all mediation
The two nations have been at war sin-
ce Monday, Sept. 22, when Iraq invaded
Iran. Zia had hoped to sound out the
chances of mediating the conflict in
what was described as a "goodwill
mission" to Tehran and Baghdad.
Meanwhile, tanks and foot soldiers
battled all along the Iran-Iraq war front
yesterday, and Iran claimed it recap-
tured a border town from invading
Iraqi forces, Iraq sgid its air force bat-
tered oil depots and concentrations of
Iranian tanks and that'Iranian war-
planes hit seven Iraqi cities.
In Tehran, Prime Minister Moham-
mad Ali Rajai was reported studying a
new U.S. letter on the 52 American
hostages. But in Washington, State
Department spokesman Jack Cannon
said it was the same letter the depar-
tment publicly acknowledged a week
ago and was designed to assure Iran of
U.S. neutrality in the Iran-Iraq crisis.

Carter fields questions from a
MSA asks police to warn
before issuing noise fines
By DAVID MEYER
Representatives of the Michigan Student Assembly met
with Ann Arbor Police Chief William Corbett yesterday to
voice concern over a policy allowing police to issue
citations during peak hours for excessive noise without
The MSA officials said they believe the policy represen-
ts a shift from last year's practice of issuing warnings to
violators of the ordinance. They also asserted that most
students are unaware that officers are not required to
warn persons that there has been a complaint before
issuing a fine..
"IT'S AN UNFAIR policy," according to MSA
President Marc Breakstone, a member of the four-person
delegation. "Students are acting under the assumption
that the previous policy" is still in effect.
Corbett refused to say in an interview, however,
whether there has been a policy change. "I'm not sure it
(the no-warning policy) is any radical departure from any
old policy," Corbett said, "I can't say, in fact, that we are-
operating under a new policy."
Although Corbett would not say whether a policy change
had been made, MSA officials believe there has been an
increase in the number of citations issued due to such a
change. Exact figures were not immediately available,
but Marian Dann, director of the traffic division of the
15th District Court, which handles the citations, said there

*TAs threaten to ignore tuition bills
By CHARLES THOMSON
Denouncing the University for
refusing to bargain collectively with the
Graduate Employees Organization,
more than 60 GEO members and sup-
porters rallied on the steps of the LSA
building yesterday and were urged not
to pay their September tuition bills.
Speakers at the rally urged students
not to pay their bills to protest the
University's position with respect to
GEO and to demonstrate support for
AT ONEPOINT during' the rally, a
bundle of tuition bills collected from
people in attendance was set afire.
GEO President Dave Kadlecek,
speaking at the rally, said the act of
withholding tuition from the University
would draw attention to the fact that
graduate stbdent assistants pay tuition,
would publicize to the University's
refusal to bargain, and would demon-
strate that the GEO is "not just going to
wait around for the courts to enforce
our rights in this matter-the GEO is
going to do something."
Kadklecek said that by collecting
tuition from graduate students, the
University is forcing the students to pay
a "kick-back" to keep their jobs. He
compared the actions of the University
to the case involving Charles Diggs, a
former member of the House of
Representatives who was convicted of
taking kickbacks from employees.
KADLECEK SAID the difference
between Diggs and the University is
that Diggs is in jail while the University
administration is not. "Despite his
faults, Diggs did a hell of a lot more for
minorities, the poor, and working
people than the University ad-
ministration," he said.
GEO and the University are involved
in a case before the Michigan Em-
ployment Relations Commission which

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS burned tuition bills yesterday on the steps of the
LSA Building as a sign of protest of the University's failure to recognize
the Graduate Employees Organization.
ASOUTH CAROLINA funeral director has devised
a last hurrah for Clemson Tiger fans who don't
want to stop cheering even, after the game of
of life is over. Tiger boosters can now take their
seats in the great stadium in the sky, surrounded by their
beloved orange and white, with the familiar paw-shaped
emblem nearby. The idea began three years ago when
and the $300,000 attached to it. Ardigo, who will appear in
the November issue of Penthouse, said she's "too good to
represent Penthouse." The idea of abdicating the pet
throne came after Ardigo learned that Americans cast a
more critical eye on nudity than she imagined. "In Europe
we take nudity different than you do," she said. "Here it's
almost offensive. The more I thought about it, I learned that
people's reactions to this magazine are not so favorable."
Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione says the $300,000 will be
donated to charity, probably to the Metropolitan Opera,

Lawrence and Bev Ross have been keeping his dog, "Jazz,"
since he ran away last year. But the Rosses assert that the
dog-they call him Duke-has been withthem for 21/2years
since he was a puppy. Kohn originally came to his con-
clusion as to the identity of the disputed dog when he heard
it bark in the Ross' backyard as he was passing by. "I knew
it was my dog," Kohn said, "I'd had him four years and I
know what my dog sounds like." But the Rosses contend,
"We've had him since he was a puppy.... He may have a
dog that looks like Duke, but this is not his dog." 1
