Ohio bathtub pushers mugged
Six Ohio fraternity brothers received
an unpleasant welcome to New York
City last week, when they were mugged
after wheeling a bathtub there from
Cleveland in a fundraising effort last
To add insult to injury, police towed
away the illegally-parked van and
trailer where the students had stored
The saga began when six members of
Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at
Cleveland State University wheeled the
bathtub 600 miles to raise $4,000 in con-
tributions for St. Jude's Children's
Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.
They arrived at the Empire State
Building last Saturday night, and were
on their way to a Manhattan bar to
celebrate when a pack of theives tried
to steal their wallets, striking one of
them with a bottle.
Unfortunately, New York had more
surprises in store - on Monday, the
students discovered their van, trailer,
and bathtub had been towed away.
A sympathetic police department of-
ficial arranged to have the vehicles
returned without a fine, said Tom
Kelly, a spokesman for the mayor's of-

been an education," said fraternity
member Ed Buchner, after receiving

President Robert Marson returned
the check with a note asking Ragland to
"consider other ways to support the

Ragland said he was not surprised

Marston to discuss the offer with him.
Ragland has made similar offers to
Stanford and Duke universities, but
was rejected both times. Officials at
Stanford said that the process of
determining whether or not a student
was gay would be discriminatory.

Students at the University of New
Mexico can now. become nudists with
the University's blessing - a group
hoping to promote better mental and
physical health through nudism was
recognized as an official student
organization last week.
The University of New Mexico Nudist
Alliance's first objective is to clear up
misconceptions non-nudist students
may have about the group, spokesman
Eric Brookshire said.
"Most non-nudists think of nudists as
wierdos who are into swinging, but they
couldn't be further from the truth.
Nudism is an ethical movement that
promotes a family philosophy toward
better health and a wholesome
socialization through a complete
awareness of their own bodies,"
The group already has nearly a dozen
members and uses a private club for
Brookshire said, the group hopes
eventually to release New Mexico
students of their materialistic view of
"Once everyone's clothes are
removed, all vestiges of social status
and sexual competition are removed so
that a person can be accepted on face
value rather than the type of clothes he
or she wears. What remains is a true
person-to-person relationship that non-
nudists cannot understand," said
Brookshire. - The Daily Lobo,

Riots injury 15 n Manila
MANILA, Philippines - Rioting students swarmed into the streets and
fought pitched battles with police yesterday, demanding President Fer-
dinand Marcos resign and President Reagan cancel his planned November.
At least 15 people were injured and 52 arrested, most of them near the
presidential palace where between 500 and 1,000 rock-throwing youths
clashed with 500 riot police and troops guarding Marcos' residence. The
security forces fired bullets into the air and charged, scattering the
Army checkpoints were thrown up along roads throughout the city and
cars were searched as the military set up a dragnet for suspected demon-
Government television repeatedly interrupted programming to broadcast
a military warning to parents to keep their children off the streets and away
from "illegal demonstrations."
The renewed violence came two days after 11 people died in rioting near
the palace and a day after Marcos threatened use of increased force to quell
protests against his 18-year rule.
Physician sentenced for rapes
AKRON, Ohio - Dr. Edward Jackson, who admitted in court that "oc-
casionally I lose my battle with the angel of death," was sentenced yester-
day to at least 191 years in prison for committing dozens of rapes and sexual
Jackson, a 39-year-old physician, was convicted Thursday of 60 felonies -
including 21 rapes - by a seven-man, five-woman jury that rejected his plea
that he was legally insane and driven for seven years to repeatedly attack
and rape women.
An innocent man who resembled Jackson had spent five years in prison for
crimes committed by the Columbus doctor - who will be eligible for parole
in 91/2 years under Ohio law.
Jackson - who had sat expressionless during the 21-day trial when 30 of
his victims and his grieving wife took the stand - had his say yesterday.
When asked if he had any statement, he tried to muster an apology for the
packed Summit County Common Pleas courtroom.
Following Jackson's statements, Judge Frederick Williams, a visiting
Columbus judge who heard the case in Akron on a change of venue, then read
a four-page sentence that also included $131.250 in fines plus court costs.
Reagan's flying command post
to be moved to safer location
WASHINGTON -President Reagan's "Doomsday" flying command post
for use in national emergencies will be moved from an Air Force base in
Maryland to a secret location less vulnerable to surprise nuclear attack, it
was revealed yesterday.
According to a censored version of testimony at a secret House Ap-
propriations subcommittee hearing held in May, the sophisticated E-48 air-
craft will be transferred from Andrews Air Force Base only 10 miles from the
White House to a more remote area.
The new basing, probably somewhere in the Middle West, would make the
plane less vulnerable to Soviet submarines prowling off the Atlantic coast
within a few minutes missile-striking time of Andrews.
The E-48, a modified Boeing 747 jumbo jet with ultra-sophisticated com-
munications and computers, is kept on a 24-hour-a-day readiness status for
The report did not say how the president would reach the new base in the
event of an emergency. Marine helicopters now regularly fly the president
between the White House and Andrews, where Air Force One, his usual tran-
sport, also is based.
Prices rise .4% in August
WAS4IN'GkTO N --Consumer prices rose04.percent in August as. the sum-
mer drought helped boost food prices for the first time in three months, the
goveirfmehit said yesterday. The White House said "inflation remains under
control," but some private economists weren't so sure.
Prices advanced at an annual rate of only 3.4 percent in the first eight
months of 1938, prompting economists to predict that rate for the full year
will match - or actually fall below - the 3.9 percent of last year.
Over the past 12 months, prices have gone up only 2.6 percent, the Labor
Department said in releasing its latest report on the Consumer Price Index.
The department said prices have exactly tripled since 1967. The index
stood at 300.3 last month, meaning that goods which cost consumers $10 in
1967 now carry a collective price tag of $30.03.
Rebels damage radio stations
SAN SALVADOR - A Salvadoran rightist death squad bombed two radio
stations that refused to broadcast a communique that claimed the group was
putting a kidnapped Foreign Ministry official on trial for treason, station
employees said yesterday.
The Salvadoran Congress immediatelyi called for an "exhaustive" in-
vestigation of death squad activity, which human rights groups blame for
nearly 80 percent of the 40,000 political assassinations recorded in El
Salvador over the past four years.
The Maximiliano Hernandez Martinez Anti-Communist Brigade said it
had put a bomb in the shared studios of Cadena Central and Cadena Mil-
Ochenta radio stations in San Salvador late Thursday, the employees said.
There were no injuries, but the blast destroyed the facade of the building f
and wrecked furniture and telephone lines.
