NBC's Chancellor steps down

NEW YORK (AP) - John Chan-
cellor, who resisted the tide toward
celebirity journalism with a calm,
thoughtful style, steps down as "NBC
Niightly News" anchorman after
today's program with none of the fan-
fare than accompanied a similar
coange at CBS a year ago.
In fact, Chancellor is not leaving
"Nightly News." He will provide
commentary and analysis three or four
tines a week, and NBC has taken pains

to include him in print and proadcast
ads promoting the transition to an an-
chor team of Tom Brokaw and Roger
"I REGAR(D it as the best job in jour-
nalism, certainly television jour-
nalism," Chancellor said yesterday. "I
get to travel, choose the stories I want
to do, and control my material, within
the normal standards of good jour-
Mudd was at least indirectly involved

in the hoopla that surrounded Dan
Rather's appointment as successor to
Walter Cronkite as "CBS Evening
News" anchorman last March. Mudd,
a veteran Washington correspondent
once considered a candidate to replace
Cronkite, jumped to NBC in the wake of
the switch at CBS.
The "Nightly News" changeover
comes a month after the appointment of
Reuven Frank, a long-time Chancellor
associate, as president of NBC News.
FRANK, WHO was president of NBC
News from 1968 to 1973, said Chancellor
had spoken of his desire for the com-
mentator's job. Chancellor said he
raised the subject with the NBC News
hierarchy as far back as 1977.
"I think the reason it's come to me,"
he said of the job, "is that you ought not
to have somebody doing it who is a
stranger to the audience."

Hash Bash turnout declines

Diag, across State Street, and into an
alley next to Betsy Barbour dormitory,
before being held for three outstanding
University students who made their
way through the small crowd or who
completely sidestepped the Diag on
their way to classes seemed less than
enthusiastic about the 'newcomers to
the campus.
"I believe in the early '70s, it (the
Hash Bash) was fine, but today it's
useless," said LSA Junior Jack
Abraham. "There's a lot of people who
don't belong here, like non-college
students and high school kids."
"But the Worst thing is the preachers
standing on the benches taking advan-
tage of this,' he added, referring to two
evangelists who had perched them-
selves on Diag benches and lectured to
the crowd.
SOME STUDENTS said they were
bothered by the fact that University
security officers had locked some en-
trances to University buildings that
bordered on the Diag in an effort to
keep the Hash Bashers from wandering
Walter. Stevens, the director of
University security, said that officers
were stationed by some building en-
trances to screen out the non-students
who attempted to walk in. "We're
trying to check the doors for non-
students without disrupting the studen-
ts," he said. "I think things have gone
reasonably well.
Despite what one disappointed Hash
Basher called a "very indifferent tur-
nout," some bash celebrants said they

remained devoted to the yearly
"I'VE BEEN to all 11 Hash Bashes,"
said Richard Sheiel, 23, who drove up
from Toledo for the bash, "and I'll
always keep coming back on April
Fool's Day, and I'm still going to smoke
my weed."
But Sheiel and some other Hash
Bashers said they were angry with
police policy of cracking down on pot
smokers. "How can they seriously en-
force a law like that?" pondered Sheiel.
"I'm not starting any fights or
anything, I just want to be able to come
here and smoke a little hash and have
some fun."
The political activism that accom-
panied the Hash Bashes of the early '70s
was mostly absent yesterday as most of
the participants mingled in small
groups and listened to a few guitar
players. The only sign of activism was
four placards brought by members of
the War Tax Dissidents group, who said
they picked that day for their rally by
coincidence and were nft coordinating
their efforts withthe Hash Bash.

Latin America
and the
Muslim World
A symposium to be held on Saturday. April 3, in Auditorium 4
of the Modern Language Building, The University of Michigan.


The world-wide resurgence of religion as a political force has assumed diverse
forms, but striking similarities have been observed between the Theology of
Liberation within the Church in Latin America and the radical Islamic movement
which strives for societal change in many Asian and North African nations. This
symposium is a comparative approach to the two movements, focusing on their
socio-economic contexts, the politicization of religious values, and the problem of
authority and sources in the new hermeneutic.
10:00-11:30 Panel: Liberation Theology and the
Church in Latin America
Speaker: Daniel Levine, Associate
Professor of Political Science,
University of Michigan
Discussants: Thomas Quigley, Advisor
for Latin American Affairs, Office of
International Justice and Peace, United
States Catholic Conference
Mauricio Gaborit, Honduran priest and
graduate student in Psychology,
University of Michigan
1:30-3:00 Panel: The Islamic Movement
Speaker: Hamid Algar, Professor of
Persian and Islamic History, University
of California, Berkeley
Discussants: Richard P. Mitchell,
Professor of Middle Eastern History,
university of Michiaan
