CHINA ALSO has not commented on
the defection of Lu Zun's grandson 29-
year-old Zhou Linfei. Zhou had been
studying television production in Tokyo
atstate expense since-1979 and was due
to return to Peking.
His defection was especially em-
barrassing since the Communist
regime hails Lu Xun as one of China's
greatest revolutionary writers and
"When Lu Xun's grandson defected
to Taiwan, our senior leaders were
really furious," said a Chinese source
who was a close friend of Zhou's.

Washtenaw County Sheriff Tom Minick reflects on the exhausting 20 hours spent tracking down escaped murderer Kyle
Johnson. A snapshot of Johnson, taken after he was captured yesterday, is propped up on Minick's desk.

The woman's ploy apparently
worked, Minick continued, because af-
ter eating, Johnson decided to go up-
stairs to take a shower. Once Johnson
was in the shower, the woman fled in
her car.
The woman, who police would not
identify, drove toward Pontiac Trail
where, by coincidence, a sheriff's
department search helicopter was lan-
ding to refuel. She contacted sheriff's

officers, who, with Minick, proceeded
to the woman's home in the 5000 block
of Six Mile Road.
WITH THE house surrounded, John-
son fled upstairs from the kitchen.
Minick and two deputies entered the
house and arrested Johnson.
"He didn't resist at this point,"
Minick said, "though he made some
disparaging remarks."
Police took Johnson to Washtenaw
County Jail yesterday. They said he
probably would be arraigned tomorrow
in County Circuit Court on a number of
charges related to his escape Friday,
including attempted murder, felonious
assault, escape, breaking and entering,
and auto theft.
AT THE TIME of his escape Friday,
Johnson was on his way to County Cir-
cuit Court for a hearing on charges that
he and two other prisoners were in-
stigators in last April's riot at Huron
Valley Men's Prison in Pittsfield
Township, just eight miles south of Ann
Minick said one of the reasons John-
son was able to escape in the first place
is because "he's a great physical
specimen.. In prison he was a
physical-fitness nut." Johnson was
able to outrun his pursuers in spite of
the chains around his waist, Minick
Johnson was not wearing ankle
chains during the ride to court Friday.
And all three convicts were able to free
their hands from the belly chains,
police said.
HURON VALLEY prison officials

would not comment on why the
prisoners were not in ankle chains.
Minick said that decision is left up to
individual prisons. He added that in
cases like this one, involving dangerous
or unruly prisoners, Washtenaw County
Sheriff's Department policy requires
the use of ankle chains.
The weekend search included as
many as 85 police officers from the
sheriff's department, Ann Arbor
Police, Oakland Cunty Sheriff's Depar-
tment, Michigan State Police, and some
federal officials. At the time of the cap-
ture, about 25 to 30 officers were in-
volved in the manhunt.
Also, at the time of the arrest, John-
son had managed to free himself of his
belly chain, though police said he still
wore it when he assaulted the woman.
After his shower, Johnson also changed
from his prison blues into a pair of the
woman's blue jeans and one of her shir-
ts, Minick said. "And when we arrested
him, he had a 16-inch barbeque fork in
one hand and a 40-ounce Coke in the
"He was fiesty, snide, and nasty
when we arrested him," but he didn't
fight, the sheriff added. I
Minick praised the comprehensive ef-
fort of law enforcement officials and
citizen cooperation as the key to recap-
turing Johnson. "People called us.
There was a community effort. You
have to have this unequivocable com-
munity cooperation in this type of
case," Minick said.
The large search effort was what kept
Johnson within the search areas,
especially for the 15 hours he spent un-
derneath the Ann Arbor porch, Minick
Officials were also able to alert by
phone nearly 70 percent of the people
living in the area where Johnson was
finally captured, Minick said.

Solidarity leaders urge strike
WARSAW, Poland- Underground Solidarity leaders, declaring all hope
for government reconciliation shattered, appealed for new protests against
martial-law enforcers yesterday and urged workers to mobilize for an
"ultimate" general strike next spring.
The appeal, circulated here yesterday, was the first call for a general
strike by the now-outlawed union since its hiding leaders united in April to
resist the Communist government's crackdown.
"Solidarity is entering a new phase of conflict," said their appeal, cir-
culated in leaflets. "Weakening the authorities is an important element of
preparation for a general strike."
They called for an eight-hour strike Nov. 10-the second anniversary of
Solidarity's registration in a Warsaw court-followed by demonstrations
and a week of protests beginning Dec. 13, the first anniversary of martial
The statement called for a boycott of government-controlled unions
established by the new law banning Solidarity and included instructions for
mobilizing the general strike planned next spring.
This exceeds an earlier call for a four-hour strike Nov. 10 to protest the
new law passed by the Polish Sejm or Parliament Oct. 8 that outlawed
Actress O'Neill shot accidentally
BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y.- Actress Jennifer O'Neill, the star of "Summer
of '42," was listed in fair condition yesterday after accidentally shooting
herself in the abdomen, police said.
Detective James Salmon said Miss O'Neill's wound was "accidental" and
"apparently self-inflicted." He said she was found alone in her bedroom,
bleeding heavily.
At least four people, including her husband, were in the house at the time
of the shooting Friday evening, Salmon said. He refused to identify the other
three, but said they had been questioned.
O'Neill, 34, telephoned police herself after the shooting.
Police had not been able to talk to the actress, who remained in stable con-
dition under intensive care after surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital
Arab king lists peace demands
WASHINGTON- Morocco's King Hassan said yesterday the Arab world
will recognize Israel, if certain conditions are met, including Israeli sur-
der of the territories occupied in the 1967 war.
Hassan also said the Arab-Israeli conflict has "entered a new phase: This
is no longer the conflict of force, but in fact it is the conflict of law, and
Although Hassan's willingness to recognize Israel was qualified, he went
further than most Arab leaders have been willing to go previously toward
accepting the Israeli state.
Hassan headed a six-nation Arab League delegation that met with
President Reagan on Friday to discuss Arab and U.S. proposals for a lasting
peace in the Middle East.
Foremost among the conditions, Hassan said, is that Israel must give up
the West Bank and Gaza Strip and return to the borders is occupied before
the 1967 war. He didn't list others, but in the past, the Arab nations have said
they include Israeli recognition of the Palestine Liberation Organization and
the establishment of a Palestinian state in the occupied territories.
Hassan said individual Arab nations might respond differently in
recognizing Israel. He said some might exchange ambassadors and engage
in trade, and others would refrain from direct contact.
Jobless scholars find home
AMHERST, Mass.- Five colleges and universities in western
Massachusetts have set up a sort of "halfway house" to give aid and support
to unemployed scholars.
"This program is rather unique and geared to helping people continue in
academics," said Patricia Cahill, a spokeswoman for Five Colleges Inc.
The program, set up by the University of Massachusetts and Amherst,
Mount Holyoke, Smith and Hampshire colleges, does not give the jobless
professors any money. But it does provide them an academic base, a place to
continue their scholarly research and secretaries to type their resumes and
grant applications, Ms. Cahill said Friday.
"These are tough times for academics. The colleges and universities are
just not thriving the way they were in the 1960s," she said.
Young scholars-the last hired and the first laid off- have had an
especially difficult time getting work as colleges and universities are forced
by the economic crunch to cut back, she said.
Particularily hard hit have been the liberal arts specialists. Seven of the
first eight "associates" in the program are people in their 30s with doc-
torates in history, literature, art and music, she said.
DeLorean car sales surge
DETROIT- John Z. DeLorean's million-dollar misfortunes have proved a
bonanza for dealers of his gull-winged sports cars. Instead of being stuck
with stainless steel white elephants, they have a hot item on their hands.
Dealers across the country reported a surge of interest in the cars in the
days immediately after DeLorean's arrest on federal drug charges and the
demise of his Northern Ireland-based automaker.
While the $25,000 cars sold well in their first few months in 1981, sales had
dropped off to a trickle in past weeks and the 1982 version was discounted to
about $17,000.
Auto museum curators say the car likely will not be considered an official
"classic" for years, if ever.
But owners of the stainless steel autos bearing the "DMC" mark can be
sure of one thing-there won't be too many on the block.
And it's unlikely many will carry the bumper sticker depicted by Detroit

Free Press syndicated cartoonist Richard Guindon: "I brake for nares."
