crashes in
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) -
A U.S. Army helicopter taking part in
war games crashed in bad weather in
the rugged mountains of northeastern
Honduras near the Nicaraguan border,
killing four American soldiers and in-
juring six, the U.S. Embassy said
"There was no indication of any
hostile action," an embassy spokesman
The accident occurred Thursday af-
ternoon as the UH-60 Blackha wk
helicopter was en route from El
Aguacate air base, 130 miles northeast
of Teghcigalpa, to San Lorenzo on the
Gulf of Fonseda on .the Pacific coast,

to determine the cause of the crash, the.

Slave trial testimony

Two defense witnesses yesterday
denied seeing a bust of Adolf Hitler in
the home of a Chelsea farming couple
charged with holding two farmhands
slaves for more than 10 years.
The testimoney, by William Perry,
57, the brother of farmowner Ike Koz-
minski, and Blake Clemens, 25, a
friend, contradicted statements by
former farmworker Michael Wilcome
who said last week that he saw a bust of
Hitler in the Kozminski living room.
PE RRY AND Clemens told U.S.
District Judge Charles Joiner yester-
day that they had been to the Kozminski
farm at 4678 Peckins Rd. several times
and had not seen the statue.
Kozminski, 61, his wife, Margarethe,
56, and thier son, John, 30, are each
charged with one count of conspiracy to
violate the farmhands' civil rights.
They are also charged with two counts
of involuntary servitudle for allegedly
keeping farmhands Louis Molitoris, 59,

and Robert Fulmer, 57, captive on their
Witnesses in the state's first slavery
case in more than 60 years have said
last week that Molitoris and Fulmer
were beaten, slapped and verbally
abused while living in a dilapidated old
trailor outside the Kozminski farm and
surviving on rotten food. Government
attorney's and witnesses have also
desci'ibed the men as mentally retar-
ded with below-average IQs.
Speaking with a thick Polish accent,
Perry told the 12-member jury yester-
day about the Kozminski's past ex,-
periences in six Nazi concentration
STAR TING IN February of 1940,
Perry said he and Kozminski were
stationed at a string of camps, in-
cluding Lodz, Auschwitz and Dachau,
until they were liberated by the U.S.
Army in May of 1945.
Defense Attorney Ivan Barnis showed
the jury a picture of Perry in 1945

wearing a prisoner's uniform in
Munich, Germany. When Barrns asked
Perry why he saved that picture, Perry
answered "to show my kids what
(their) father went through."
WHEN KOZMINSKI and Perry were
young children in Lodz, Poland, Perry
said they watched as their mother was
pushed into a truck by Nazi soldiers and
gassed to death. Perry also said their
father had been beaten to death four
months prior to their mother's death.
When U.S. Assistant District Attor-
ney Virginia Morgan asked if Perry had
any scars from his stay in the concen-
tration camps, he stood up to try and
show jury members several scars on
his stomach.
Perry said the scars resulted from in-
jections made by a German doctor who
wanted to conduct an experiment which
would force a tumor to grow in his

900 students start vaccination drive

Despite what one University health official called
a "disappointing" turnout yesterday, a massive
measles vaccination program in Mary Markley
managed to protect 900 of the dormitory's 1,200
residents against the disease.
The official also said that another case of the
measles was suspected in Mosher-Jordan,
another hill dormitory. Officials expect the
results of blood tests today.
UNIVERSITY and state health officials staT-
ted the vaccination drive Thursday in Markley
after two cases of rubeola, a form of the
measles, were reported over the last two
weeks. The most recent case was diagnosed

Wednesday evening.-
Rubeola, the harsher of two forms of the
measles, is 'one of the most highly contagious
diseases. It is transmitted through the air where
the virus can survive for several minutes after
an infected person sneezes or coughs.-
Although commonly thought of as a harmless
children's disease, rubeola can cause high fever
a flu-like sickness, and a red body rash in adults.
In extreme cases it can develop into bronchitis,
hepatitis, and infections of the lymph nodes and
STARTING next week, the immunization drive
will move through each of the dormitories., Vac-
cinations will also be offered at Health Services

this weekend and throughout the next two weeks.
Officials hope to complete the drive before
students leave campus for spring vacation on
Feb. 17.
AS OF 5:30 yesterday evening, 400 students
had either received a vaccination or confirmed
that they had been inoculated after 1968, when an
effective vaccination first received widespread
use, said Caesar Briefer, director of Health Ser-
Another 450 residents were inoculated Thur-
sday, he said.
The two Markley residents with rubeola are
being "kept isolated in their rooms pretty
much," Briefer said.

A LTHOUGH A T least one of those residents is
still contagious, Briefer said that leaving them in
their rooms was the safest available option. Ill
students cannot stay at Health Services because
its infirmary closed last spring, and sending
students home would only contaminate another
community, Briefer said.
Markley residents, however, have remained
c~alm despite the warnings and precautions taken
in the dorm. Most said they were inoculated in-
stead of taking chances with such a highly con-
tagious disease.
''I was scared to get the measles," said LSA

Late paper seam begins again

About this time every term, the late
After sleepless nights slumped over
the typewriters many students will do
almost anthing 2i skip class, outright
lie, or maybe just fudge a little - to get
that extra hour, or day, or even month
past deadline to finish their paper.
PROFESSORS, on the other hand,
don't want to spend the rest of the term
grading first paper assignments. Some
fear students will take advantage of a
lenient late paper policy. Many
threaten to mark down grades which
gives students a powerful incentive for
adhering to deadlines.
With these rules drawn, it's a subtle
game of psychology, matching the wits
of students against the attitudes of in-
dividual professors. The prize is that

"DAMN RIGHT I lie to them," said
one student who asked that his name be
withheld. "Everybody says that if you
talk to the teacher he will 'understand.'
Don't even believe that mess. .. I told
one of my teachers that my mother was
pregnant and I told my English TA that
my aunt was dying down in Georgia."

Other students use a less imaginative
tactic, simply skipping class and not
handing in the paper.
"'I didn't tell the teacher," said Aaron
Shemwell, an engineering junior. "I
just figured I would hand it in late. I
knew he had a policy of one-third grade
down for each day late, but I said to
myself I would get it in as soon as
possible. I handed it in two weeks late."
BUT THIS approach also has its
risks. Shemwell received a "D" on the

BUDAPEST, Hungary (UPI) -
British Prime Minister Margaret That-
cher called yesterday for the urgent
resumption of nuclear arms talks in
Geneva and challenged 'both the West
and the Soviet Bloc to achieve arms
reduction by the year 2000.
"We are but 16 years from that day,"
she said in a toast prepared for delivery
at a gala dinner honoring her first of-
ficial visit to a Soviet bloc country.
"IT WILL inevitably be a time when
the peoples of the world take stock,"
she said. "They will ask what the
human race has achieved, what it
should have achieved and what it might
have prevented.
"One great test of leadership in the
next 16 years will be the imagination
and determination we bring to the tasks
of arms control and disarmamerit,"
said Mrs. Thatcher, who began her two-
day visit earlier in the day.
"Britian and her allies positively
want agreements to reduce arms,"~
Mrs. Thatcher said. "The need is
urgent. Weapons that were fiction
yesterday are fact today, and will be

WASHINGTON (AP) - Cautioning
"this is not a public health emergen-
cy," the government yesterday banned
virtually all agricultural uses of EDB
and issued standards that states can
use to destroy a small quantity of
grocery shelf foods tainted with the
suspected cancer-causing pesticide.
The Environmental Protection Agen-
cy issued an emergency ban im-
mediately forbidding further use of
EDB to combat insects in grains and
indicated it would take the same action
with fruit in a few weeks.
BUT appealing to the public to "calm
down," EPA Administrator William
Ruckelshaus said eating an EDB-
contaminated product does not pose

"We are not talking about picking up,
something .that is acutely toxic,"
Ruckelshaus said. "Eating a grapefruit
or a cupcake isn't much of a risk at all.
The problem is a lifetime of exposure."'
He estimated that less than 1 percent
of the wheat-based products in grocery
stores and warehouses and about 7 per-
cent of the corn-based products exceed
EPA standards announced yesterday.
RUCKELSHAUS' said he sees no
reason to destroy any raw grain, fruit
or products made from them now on the
market. But he acknowledged several
states may wish to do so and said the
guidelines will help provide "a con-
sistent, coherent approach to what is
clearly a national problem."

We are not men
HE FRENCH border police didn't seem to like the
looks of English pop star Boy George yesterday,
when they detained him for several hours at Nice

this is me." The case was referred tQ Paris, but authorities
decided to let Boy George continue his journey as he and his
manager were en route to San Remo, Italy, and did not plan
to stay in France. "He wasn't searched or anything like
that," the spokesman said.
Quiet cabbies

said silence would be an impossible restraint. A great cab
driver "always strikes up a conversation with the
passengers," said Al LaGasse, of the International Taxicab
Association in Rockville, Md. "A good many are
philosophers in their own right. They have a special view of
the world." But at least one Washington cab driver
suggests facetiously that the Greek law wouldn't even have
any impact in the nation's Capitol. "Who're you going to
talk politics to in this town," said cabbie Jerome Bradley.
"All you have here is thieves masquerading as politicians.
