Bomb
threat
shakes up
Bursley
An anonymous bomb threat in the
Bursley cafeteria yesterday sent
residents out into the streets while
police and building officials checked
the building.
At about 4 p.m., cafeteria supervisors
received a letter which said a bomb had
been planted in the cafeteria. They
evacuated the cafeteria and pulled the
fire alarm to clear the rest of the dor-
mitory. Residence staff members and
two Ann Arbor police officers checked
the building for almost an hour before
sending out the all clear signal.
"It was a thrilling experience," said
resident Greg Dufour. "It got me away
from studying." Most residents,
however, found the scare annoying. "It
was ridiculous," said resident Caroline
Haines, "They (residence staff) did the
right thing in getting everyone out. But
who ever did it is a maniac." A few
people even saw good things come from
the scare. Said Lane Jones, "Oh well, it
saved us from another Bursley dinner."

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam -
Gary Tanous, who fought for more than
two years to get his daughter out of
Vietnam, tearfully took her in his arms
yesterday and joined an airlift of 11
Vietnamese-American children bound
for the United States.
"I have never been happier in my
life," said Tanous, tears streaming
down his chees. The 42-year-old Van-
couver, Wash. ,resident had not seen 15-
year-old Jean Marie, his only child, for
14 years.
TANOUS WAS the only father present
for the Amerasian, children's airlift,
which is sending 11 youngsters aged
seven to 15 to relatives or sponsors in
America. Nine Vietnamese relatives
S are also on the airlift, which stopped
over in Bangkok, Thailand, before con-
tinuing to the United States.
The Vietnamese government an-
nounced it is ready to grant "im-
mediate visas" to all Amerasian

children and relatives who want to go to
the United States, and said it is the
responsibility of the United States tox
take them.
Yesterday's emigres were the largest
group of offspring of GIs and civilians
to leave for the United States since Ho
Chi. Minh City - formerly Saigon
fell to the communists in 1975. They
were documented as U.S. citizens.
Vietnam says 26 more such children
and 21 relatives will be flown out Oct. 7
in the program coordinated with eight
U.S. volunteer agencies.
THE CHILDREN paraded proudly
out of Ho Chi Minh City airport ter-
minal and changed in Vietnamese,
"Let's go to America," before boarding
an Air France charter flight for
Bangkok, the first leg of their journey
to the land of their fathers.
U.S. officials said privacy laws forbid
the disclosure of the fathers' identities,
but said the children would later be flown

to Georgia, Texas, Washington,
Arizona, Oregon, California and
Washington, D.C.
Most Amerasians are not eligible to
emigrate automatically to the United
States, although several hundred have
left as refugee "boat people" or
through a complicated U.N.- sponsored
program. The United States has said 88
children, including the 11 who left
yesterday on an Air France flight, are
documented U.S. citizens and eligible to
emigrate.
RELATIVES leaving with the
children included mothers, grandparen-
ts and sisters and brothers.
"Our records indicate there are
15,000 to 20,000 more Amerasians
here," Vietnamese Foreign Ministry
official Nguyen Phi Tuyen told repor-
ters and delegates from U.S.
humanitarian groups at the airport.
"WE BELIEVE that almost all of
them want to go because they are
children of American blood."
Only three of the children departing
yesterday were fathered by American
servicemen. The others are the
children of American civilians who
worked in Vietnam before the final U.S.
withdrawal.
