THE COAST GUARD reported white smoke still
billowing from the ship although no flames were
visible. Lt. E.K. Delong said the center of the super-
structure and the bridge had been burned out, but he
said there was no indication that the fire had reached
the vessel's fuel tanks.
Sheaves added that the Prinsendam was listing
slightly, but was in no danger of sinking.
A storm front rocked the liner Monday night, but
skies cleared yesterday with winds at 20 knots and
seas three to four feet high.
The Mellon, with firefighters aboard, waited with
the Prinsendam through the night as it drifted 120
miles southwest of Yakutat off the Alaska coast.
Standing by to tow the liner, probably to Portland,
Ore., was the tug Commodore Strait.

Collins said he agreed with Piehl about
the construction problems, saying the
pedestrian traffic makes construction
work difficult.
"New street lights are being put in to
sup lement the old ones and additional
cab es are being put in for new lights,"
Collins said.
One University student said he
noticed the darkness last night. "If I
was a girl, I wouldn't walk around here
by myself," he said.
The unlit campus'comes at a time
when the Univesity is besieged with,
rumors following three unsolved mur-
ders in the past six months.I
The first murder. victim was Shirley
Small, 17, who was found dead last

Georgetown Townhouses on Page

to the D aI.

Richmond, 23, was discovered outside
the front door of her University
Townhouse apartment near Braeburn
Circle on Ellsworth Road.
The third murder victim, Rebecca
Greer Huff, was discovered Sept. 14 at
the bottom of her Walden Hills apar-
tment steps.
Ann Arbor Police Chief William Cor-
bett cited four similarities in the mur-
ders: *
* The victims were stabbed in the
chest area.
* There is no evidence of sexual
* The women were murdered early
Sunday morning.
" The women were young, attractive,
unescorted females who lived in large
apartment complexes with high
population densities.
Police have theorized that Huff and
Richmond were driving alone on
Packard Road prior to their murders,
and that Small was walking alone on
foot from the Big Boy restaurant on
Washtenaw Avenue.
A composite of a man seen within 30
to 40 yards of Huff's west-side apar-
tment complex at the time of her mur-
der has been released by police.
The man sought is a white male, 27 to
29 years old, muscular, and 5 feet, 7 in-
ches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall, police said.
He was wearing a white tank top and
dark work-type trousers at the time,
,police reported.
The University has a' 24-hour
telephone service for students who hear
a rumor and want to check its ac-
curacy. That number is 76-GUIDE.

Toxic shock syndrome
causes death of girl
The death of a teen-age Tennessee girl was officially blamed on toxic
shcok syndrome yesterday, and the American College of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists advised women to stop using the super-absorbant tampons
pending further study.
Dr. Cleland Blake, a Morristown, Tenn., pathologist, said 16-year-old
Angela French of Rutledge, Tenn., displayed all the symptoms of toxic
shock-vomitting, diarrhea and a high fever-before she died last Thursday.
French was the third confirmed victim of toxic shock syndrome within
two days.
"In general, women need not stop using tampons," the obstetricians and
gynecologists said in a statement. "However, it would be prudent, at
present, to discontinue the use of the newly developed, super-absorbant
tampons, until more conclusive scientific research has been conducted in
this area."~
Drummer's death accidental
WINDSOR, England-John "Bonzo" Bonham, the burly drummer of
thefamous rock group, Led Zeppelin, died from choking on his own vomit af-
ter drinking 40 shots of vodka in a 12-hour booze spree, a coroner ruled
Coroner Robert Wilson said the death of Bonham, whose body was found
Sept. 25 in the $2 million Windsor home of the group's lead guitarist, Jimmy
Page, was an accident.
Page, who for unexplained reasons was too weak to stand in the witness
box during the inquest, testified that Bonham was already "tipsy" when he
arrived at the estate for rehearsals for an American tour that was to start
Oct. 16.
Conservatives call Labor
proposals Marxist
BRIGHTON; England-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's govern-
ing Conservative Party, lagging in the polls, charged yesterday that the op-
position Labor Party is trying toturn Britain into a Marxist state.
Opening their annual rank-and-file convention, the Conservatives vowed
to continue their tough-and increasingly unpopular-economic policies.
They also focused on what they charged were the Marxist resolutions
passed at Labor's recent rank-and-file convention, including one tahfwould
abolish the House of Lords, Britain's upper house of Parliament.
Far from doing away with the Lords, the Conservatives said the power
of the upper house "should be strengthened and firmly established as a
safeguard against arbitary government."
Haitian refugees rescued
MIAMI-Nearly 200 Haitians, rescued from a foundering 30-foot sail-
boat, were loaded onto two Bahamas Defense Force vessels yesterday for a
stormy 180-mile trip to Nassau, officials said.
About a dozen of the 193 Haitians appeared to be making the trip in the
frail sailboat being towed by one of the Bahamian vessels, said U.S. Coast
Guard Petty Officer Mike Kelley after flying over the rescue scene.
Officials said they/had not determined whether the boat was bound for
the United States. Some 15,000 to 25,000 Haitian refugees have traveled to
South Florida in recent years. Many have come here in small, unseaworthy
Former heavyweight champV
Louis in Texas hospital
HOUSTON-Former heavyweight champion Joe Louis, the "Brown
Bomber" in many of boxing's most memorable fights, has entered
Methodist Hospital, but a spokeswoman said yesterday'it was only for a
routine checkup.
Louis, 66, has been treated at Methodist for an ailment described as
heart trouble or aneurysm.
"Everyone's got him near death, but it's not true at all," said Methodist
spokeswoman Eleanor Grainger. "I talked with his wife and she said he's
just here for his regular checkup and his condition is he's doing fine."
Judge rejects request for
acquittal in FBI trial
WASHINGTON-Turned down on his motion for acquittal, a defense
lawyer told a jury yesterday he will prove that two former FBI chiefs haver
had reason to believe it was illegal to approve break-ins in a hunt for fugitive
Thoms Kennelly, an attorney for former bureau intelligence chief Ed-
ward Miller, delivered an opening statement portraying his client as a man
who simply continued 30 years of\FBI practice in okaying the so-called
"black bag jobs."
Kennelly opened the defense after Chief U.S. District Judge William
Bryant rejected his arguments that prosecutors had failed in 13 days of
testimony to prove their case against Miller and W. Mark Felt, the FBI's
former number two man.

for the company you keep.

Some of the finest engineers and scientists in the
world work for the Aerospace Corporation. In fact, over
half of our technical staff holds an advanced degree.
One in four holds a Ph.D. This could be your chance to
join these people in shaping America's space program.
If you have (or soon wiIlhave) a degree in Engineering,
Science or Computer Science, we would like to talk to
you on campus.
We're doing some very interesting things.
Like contributing to the development of space
communication systems contained in a single laser
beam. For NASA, we have evaluated concepts for large
geostationary, synchronous space platforms. Some of
the concepts we're developing, won't be used until the
21st century.
What you'll be doing.

interest. Typically, recent college graduates are
assigned to the engineering group or our research and
experimental laboratories. Your work could involve
anything from gamma ray radiation to the development
of a spaceborne computer capable of performing
unattended for up to seven years.
You'll like our style.
We're located in Southern California only three miles
from the Pacific Ocean. We work in a quiet, campus-like
atmosphere with extensive libraries and computation
facilities for support.
Meet us in person October 13.
We'll be on campus October 13.
You can sign up in the college placement office. Or
