From AP and UPI
BONN, West Germany - Parliament
ousted Chancelor Helmut Schmidt in a
no-confidence vote yesterday and
replaced him with Christian
Democratic leader Helmut Kohl - the
first conservative to rule West Ger-
many in 13 years,
Kohl, who lacks Schmidt's experien-
ce in international affairs, said he
would return the country to a "policy of
the center" as practiced by Konrad
Adenauer, West Germany's first chan-
cellor, who brought the country into the
Western alliance.
"THE FUTURE of Germany is not to be
found in extremes, but in the center,"
said the 52-year-old Roman Catholic,
who is known as the Black Giant
because of his 6-foot-4 height.
Kohl also vowed to give toJ priority to
fighting West Germany's worst
recession since the nation was formed
33 years ago in the American, British
and French occupation zones of
defeated Germany.
The Bundstag or lower house of
parliament elected Kohl West Ger-
many's sixth chancellor by a vote of
256 to 235 after a bitter five-hour debate
that boded ill for future tranquility.
SCHMIDT'S Social Democrats, who
took power under Chancellor Willy
Brandt Oct. 21, 1969, surendered to, a
new parliamentary majority of the
Christian Democrats and the tiny but

pivotal Free Democratic Party with
bitterness and charges of betrayal.
Kohl won the backing of 30 of the 53
Free Democratic members of
Parliment, to give him seven more
votes that the necessary majority of
249.
Schmidt, 63, who in a savage speech
disputed the right of Kohl to replace
him without a new national election,
and Brandt, the Social Democratic
Partypresident, gave Kohl only a cold,
perfunctory handshake on his victory.
BUT HUNDREDS of- Germans
gathered outside and inside the
parliament building, craning their
necks to catch a glimpse of Schmidt and
wave good-bye.
Schmidt's term still had two years to
go, but he lost his majority in
parliament Sept. 17 when Free
Democratic leader Hans-Dietrich Gen-
scher quit as foreign minister and vice
chancellor over a budget dispute and
led his party out of the coalition.
Genscher, said to be such an astute
student of popular opinion that he can
"hear the political grass grow," will get
the same two posts in Kohl's cabinet.
SCHMIDT TOLD Kohl in his last
speech as chancellor that three-
quarters of the German people want
new elections as he has propsed and
they considered the no-confidence vote

Defenders of the School of Natural
Resources turned out in droves last
night, packing more than 300 suppor-
ters into Rackham Auditorium for a
public hearing on the school's future.
The impressive turnout - by far the
largest yet for a University budget
hearing - was designed to send an
important signal to administrators
who are debating whether to make
deep cuts in the program's budget.
THE SCHOOL'S backers brought in
speakers from as far away as Illinois
and California to praise the program
before members of the University's
Budget Priorities Committee last
night. Others, mainly alumni, studen-
ts, professors, and state officials, also
trumpeted what they called the
school's successful experiment at
marrying the teaching of natural
resources with economics, business,
and other social sciences.
So many speakers turned out at the
hearing last night that the meeting

ring,
ran far longer than its scheduled two
hours. All of the more than 30 persons
to speak urged the administration to
spare the school from deep cutbacks.
. Many of those who spoke responded
to charges made against the school by
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Billy Frye. The charges included
suggestions that the school's students
are not up to par, that its research is
inadequate, that enrollment is drop-
ping unusually fast, and that the
school spends too much to educate
each student
BUT SOME of last night's speakers
turned the tables on those charges, in-
sisting that, for example, it is because
of the expense that the school's
students are so well trained. The
school's field classes had come under
particular fire for their high cost, but
last night they received high praise
from students, professors, and
natural resources professionals.

Local druggists remove

kidney, to 18-day-old

By STACY POWELL
With wire reports
Extra-strength Tylenol capsules were whisked off
store shelves all over Ann Arbor yesterday, following
reports that some supplies of the drug delivered to
Detroit-area drug stores were from the batch con-
taminated with cyanide.
Already, six people in the Chciago area have died
from taking cyanide-laced Tylenol capsules from the
same shipments of the drug.
TWO SHIPMENT numbers of the drug have
already been implicated in the poisonings, MC2880
and MD1910. One other shipment, numbered
MBQ738, is also suspected of being contaminated
with cyanide. The shipment numbers are printed on
the upper-right corner of the Tylenol label.

Although pharmacies around Ann Arbor apparen-
tly have not received any shipments of the con-
taminated Tylenol, store officials say they are
removing all bottles of Extra-strength Tylenol cap-
sules from their shelves.
"We've pulled our entire stock of the Tylenol cap-
sules until we find out if anything else is going on,"
said Richardson Drug Store's pharmacist Greg
Pitaniello.
EMPLOYEES AT the Village Apothecary, another
campus drug store, also pulled their supply of the
capsules from the shelves. Patty Thompson, an em-
ployee, said, "We heard the numbers on television
and copied them down."
Neither store has been contacted by the Food and

Drug Administration, the government agency which
controls pharmaceuticals.
"Johnson & Johnson (the parent company of
Tylenol's manufacturer) have their whole force out
contacting people, the whole Michigan area, in per-
son," said Alfred Bott, a buyer for one of the Ann Ar-
bor's Tylenol distributors. "All our salesmen have
been contacted. We're not selling any (Extra-
strength Tylenol capsules) at all," he added.
Bott said that there are drug recalls all the time,
but that this incident is the "biggest scare" he
remembers.
THE FDA HAS been warning consumers about the
poisoning through television, radio, and newspapers.
It also has been in contact with the Poison Control

A team of University hospital
physicians yesterday sent home the
smallest infant ever to undergo a suc-
cessful kidney transplant.
When Karla Kimsey, the four-pound,
14-ounce infant, was born prematurely
on August 18th, University physicians
discovered that she did not have fun-
ctional kidneys.
RECOGNIZING that her chances for
survival with no mechanism to cleanse
her blood and excrete waste fluid were
virtually nonexistant, surgeons sear-
ched for a suitable kidney donor and
successfully completed the six-hour
transplant surgery Sept. 5.
"She's made it over the first hurdle,"

said Dr. Donald Dafoe, the surgeon who
performed the transplant. "The
recovery period was relatively smooth,
but there were some rough times, some
times that we did some nail-biting," he
added.
According to Dr. Dietrich Roloff, a
member of the surgical team, the 10
days immediately following the tran-
splantation were the most critical
period. It is during this period that
initial "rejection" of the new organ by
the recipient's body will occur.
PHYSICIANS said they will monitor
Karla closely during the next six mon-
ths while she begins a lifetime of drug
therapy to reduce the risk of rejection

A gala at th
By EVA SCHERER
A chance to meet the president,
gawk at his library, and nibble at his
cookie jar does not come very often,
but when it does, it is not to be missed,
and hundreds didn't yesterday after-
noon.
Many of the visitors at the humble
household of University President
Harold Shapiro said they wanted to
learn more about him.
"YOU CAN look through all the
books and academic materials Dr.
Shapiro has collected and get to know
his character and academic tastes,"
said Japanese graduate student
Sumio Miida.
The main table, a major center of
attention at the open house, contained
various pastries, cookies, and other
delectable hi-calorie delights. Punch
and apple cider quenched the thirst of
the discriminating tasters. Many
were heard to mumble between
mouthfuls about the recent tuition
hike. The newest campus jazz trio,
"The Innovations," soothed the
crowed with what they called
"mellow sounds."
Other students were happy to be at
the gala, but for different reasons.
Calling his job a "fulfilling experien-
ce," punch-server Steve Roach said
he was there to "work off the ransom
being asked for his transcript."

te Shapiro 's
ORGANIZERS and chaperones of
the event, the Office of Student
Organizations, Activities, and
Programs and the University Ac-
tivities Center Committee, mingled to
keep the conversation light and to
prevent overzealous fans from ab-
sconding with some of the noted
economists books and papers, said
spokesman Leigh Sweda.
Some guests were interested
neither in the food nor the president's
house. Undergraduate Chr iistopher
Nehavin said he came "to get a dif-
ferent perspective on the graduate
library." The library is directly
behind the president's house on S.
University.
Senior philosophy candidate,
Stephen Kass, said he wanted to ask
President Shapiro why noted
theologist Hans Kung, was invited as
a visiting professor at a state univer-
sity.
What did the Shapiros think of their
home opened to public scrutiny? Both
the president and his wife Vivian said
they enjoyed the occasion.
"They're (students) always full of
energy. I wish we could do it more of-
ten," said Mrs. Shapiro, adding that
she hoped a similar reception can be
held at the Union after graduation
ceremonies.
