pledges dressed only in jock straps and
black face run through the sorority
houses, came under fire from the Greek
system when several women were
sexually harasses.
University administrators had war-
ned fraternity members for several
years not to continue the prank, but
decided not to take any action on the
recent complaints.

Suspension from the IFC means the
fraternity will be unable to rush new
members or participate in campus and

Middlebury student forges racist notes

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (AP) - A black student at Middlebury
College who claimed to have been harassed by racist notes
and vandalism, which spread fear through the campus, has
admitted writing the notes himself, school officials said
Erica Wonnacott, dean of students at Middlebury, the first
American college to graduate a black student, said the
college learned that "the victim was the perpetrator," and
that the student had voluntarily withdrawn from the school.
WONNACOTT did not release the student's name, but
19-year-old John Grace of Burlington, Mass., said
earlier this week that he was the person who received
the notes and did not know who had sent them.
Grace had claimed that, he was at the college less than a
week when he got the first note taped to his window, and that
night he found the window had been broken. He said he was
alarmed and stayed overnight with friends. At 5 a.m. the next'
day he went back to his room and found the second note
saying, "Die nigger."
"We conducted vast handwriting check and it was pretty
clear it was his handwriting" on the notes Wonnacott
said. "He was confronted with it and he admitted he had done
it." She said the student also admitted breaking his own win-
THE SCHOOL will not press charges, Wonnacott said.
She said the student "didn't know why" he had written the
notes. "He's obviously a young man with a lot of problems."
The student sent a formal apology to college President Olin
Robison and withdrew from the school on Friday.
BECAUSE OF the incidents, the campus became so tense
that an unrelated student prank and a bit of graffiti were
recently misread as having racial overtones.

"I think I'm mostly frustrated because I've come this far
and reached this level of education and I still have to put up
with this," said senior Dorothea Gay, a past president of the
college's Black Student Union. "People are afraid to walk out
at night."
Black Student Union President Sol Levy said, "It's a
shame the efforts of this college over the years, though not
enough, may be overshadowed or even forgotten in the af-
termath of recent weeks."
Students were frightened. Anxious parents telephoned
school. Administrators worried that the incidents would tar-
nish the image of the predominantly white, liberal arts in-
stitution known for high academic standards. Middlebury
has about 80 blacks among its 1,900 students.
Three-quarters of the school population crowded into the
school chapel in two sessions to hear students and ad-
ministrators describe and denounce the incidents.
FRIENDS OF GRACE had organized a night patrol, of-
fering to take shifts staying up all night, hoping to catch the
Grace had claimed to receive five racist notes in all, the
last one Sept. 23.
Last week, a black woman was one of the three first-year
women accosted in a dormitory by two masked students. The
men wrote on the women's faces with markers and sprayed
shaving cream on the black woman's face.
College officials announced this week that the two students
responsible surrendered and described their actions as a
"prank," with no racial motivation. They were suspended.
College administrators then found they had misread what
they thought as a racial remark written on a poster. The
word "blades" had been read as "blacks."

Terrorists bomb trade fair
MARSEILLE, France - A bomb exploded near the American Algerian
stands at a trade fair in this southern French port city yesterday, killing a
French woman and wounding 27 people, three of them seriously, police said.
The blast brought a false ceiling down onto the American stand, and police
said at least two officials of the U.S. Consulate were on the stand at the time.
But they said neither was hurt.
Responsibility for the attack was claimed by a suspected Armenian
terrorist organization, the Orly Group, in a telephone call to police.
But less than an hour later, the Charles Martel Group, an ultra-rightist
French terrorist organization that wars on North African immigrants,
called a local newspaper and said it was responsible.
Interior Minister Gaston Defferre, who is also mayor of Marseillie, flew to
the exposition center by helicopter from Paris and told reporters he doubted
that the Orly Group was responsible.
He said the Armenians, after their previous attacks, quickly telephoned
news agencies with specific details to back up their claims, but in this case
the purported Armenian call was made to the police and about two hours af-
ter the bombing.
Israeli coalition talks fail
JERUSALEM - Yitzhak Shamir's attempt to form a coalition with the
Labor Party broke down yesterday, and the prime minister-designate said
he would try to put together a government from Prime Minister Menachem
Begin's coalition within the next 12 days.
The failure of the talks between Smamir's conservative Likud bloc and
Labors quashed hopes of healing a national schism over the war in Lebanon
and the future of the occupied West Bank. It left the prospect of a weak
government that may have trouble surviving until the next scheduled elec-
ions in two years.
"I have to admit I am saddened," sasid Shamir after his third meeting
with Labor Party leader Shimon Peres. "Regretfully, the negotiations have
been halted."
He said he would try to present a government based on the Begin
coalition's 64 seats in the 120-member Knesset parliament by Oct. 11. That is
the deadline set by President Chaim Herzog following Begin's resignation,
but Shamir can ask for a three-week extension.
Union threatens airine shutdown
HOUSTON - Continental Airlines said yesterday it would continue
operating its new, reduced schedule despite a scheduled strike today by
pilots and flight attendants, but a union leader predicted the walkout would
"shut the airline down."
"We want our passengers to know that we will be operating," airline
spokeswoman Stephanie Roth said. "We have no reason to believe other-
"We're going to shut the airline down," said Gary Thomas, spokesman for
the Continental chapter of the Air Line Pilots Association. "We will have
picket lines up."
On Thursday pilots and flight attendants set a 3 a.m. strike for today
against Continental.
The immediate effects of a strike were uncertain. The airlines's first
Saturday departure was slated for 7:46 a.m. flight 447 from Fort Lauder-
dale, Fla. to Houston, Continental's home base.
Continental, formerly the nation's eighth-largest air carrier, filed for
reorganization a week ago under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code
and suspended flights for two days. The airline has lost $471.9 million since
January 1979.
Mondale wins NEA backing
WASHINGTON - Walter Mondale began what could be the biggest
weekend to date in his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination by win-
ning the backing of the 1.7 million-member National Eduational Association
The former vice president easily won the support of the teachers' group,
the country's second largest labor union, and hoped for two more political
victories today in a straw poll of Maine Democrats and first stage endor-
sement by the AFL-CIO.
The NEA's board of directors voted by a 9-1 ratio to back Mondale in state
primaries and caucuses.
The overwhelming but expected victory was preceded by release of a new
Washington Post-ABC poll showing Mondale far ahead of the other six
Democratic candidates. He got 48 percent, 20 points ahead of his closest
challenger, Sen. John Glenn, (D-Ohio).
Mondale appeared before the teachers about an hour after the vote, and
said, together "we can rebuild America."
Six states join search
for killers of 2 bankers
RUTHTON, Minn. - Authorities yesterday searched a vacant farm where
two bankers were slain in ambush and launched a six-state manhunt for
father and son suspects driven from the property by foreclosure.
Lincoln County Sheriff Abe Thompson said heavy fog made a nighttime
search for the heavily armed father and son "almost impossible." He said
officers returned to the farm to look for enough clues to issue a warrant for
the pair.
Rudolph Blythe, 42, the president and owner of the Buffalo Ridge State

Bank in rural Ruthton, was shot to death Thursday morning along with the
bank's loan officer, Deems Thulin, 37. They had been lured to a vacant farm
whose mortgage had been foreclosed by the bank in 1979.
Townspeople said meanwhile tha the bank president: had been putting
pressure on delinquent farmers to make payments on loans.

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Artillery,
sniper and machine gunfire rang out
across Lebanon yesterday, but the ar-
my and Syrian-backed rebel militias
announced new measures to salvage
the fragile five-day truce.
The cease-fire committee, made up of
representatives of the army and the
Christian, Druse and Shiite Moslem
militias, met for more than four hours
in an abandoned bank building midway
between Christian and Druse towns and
announced agreement on four actions.
In addition to removal of checkpoints
from the airport and coast roads, they
agreed to an exchange of prisoners and
said, "Actions to implement this have
Beirut radio reported clashes bet-
ween Christian and Druze fighters in a
string of villages across the lover part
of the Shouf mountains southeast of the
capital and said several shells crashed
on the Beirut-Sidon coastal highway.
A Christian refugee was killed and
three others were wounded by sniper
fire in the besieged Shouf mountain
village of Deir al Kamar, the radio said.
