Prof and son
invent a mat
board game

By MICHAEL JOHNSTON
What do University math professors
do on their spare time?
One University math professor inven-
ted a game and started his own cor-
poration to produce and market it.
It took 25 years for Prof. Charles
Titus and his son Steve to perfect
"Kaliko," a new game of geometry, but
it has finally reached the market and
received the praise of Omni science
magazine and a trade publication en-
titled Games.
KALIKO IS played by placing
hexagonal pieces on a board, and the
object is to match up the lines and arcs
painted on the top of each token into
various geometric shapes such as lines
and circles. Players receive points for
the number of pieces in each completed
pattern.
"It's a game with no gimmicks, said
Titus' son Steve, who helps him
manufacture Kaliko. And without such
complexities, it is. easy to learn, said
Titus.
"Kids can catch on quick, and beat
the hell out of their parents," Prof.
Titus added.
KALIKO IS the perfected version of
"Psyche-paths," another game Titus

invented about 10 years ago. But
Psyche-paths didn't sell well because it
was poorly marketed, explains Titus.
"It wasn't visually appealing and was
made of cheap cardboard," he said.
Another problem with psyche-paths
was that Titus sold the production
rights and "lost control of the quality."
With that experience under his belt,
the second time around, Titus decided
to produce Kaliko on his own, even
though he had to "mortgage
everything" to start his company,
Future Classics Inc. that manufactured
and promoted the game.
TITUS EXPLAINED that his son had
to design a special "fancy saw
machine" to cut the game, pieces
because no existing machine could
handle the job. The game is now
manufactured in Steve's basement.
The key to success in the game in-
dustry, Titus said, is to produce a game
which is durable and appeals to all
ages.
And from the Kelly Mylnek's com-
ments, a 12 year-old contestant in the
first annual Kaliko tournament yester-
day at the Union, Titus has 'succeeded
- at least with the younger generation.
"If you don't like playing the game, you
can make puzzles and stuff," she said.

Mayor to fight crime
.in Detroit inner city

Book says American
pilots aided Israelis

DETROIT (UPI) - Mayor.Coleman
Young is asking community leaders for
help in stemming the city-wide rise of
violent crime - including the rapes of
50 schoolgirls.
City Council President Erma Hen-
derson said yesterday the council needs
Young's help to halt the growing crime
problem.
"THERE IS no room for division,"
she said.
Young said leaders in criminal
justice, religion, business, labor and
education have been asked to attend a
"community summit meeting"
Tuesday.
"The people I have invited share the
deep concern we all have over violent
crime in our city," Young said.
THE MEETING was scheduled amid
a growing groundswell of community
concern over the city's rising crime
rate and outrage over reports of sexual
assaults on at least 50 schoolgirls in
recent months.

Earlier this week, Young said that
"cooperation between citizens" is the
only way to deal with the wave of rapes
and other assaults.
Police figures show the number of
reported rapes in Detroit during the fir-
st 11 months of last year soared 31.8
percent. Homicides also climbed 14.9,
percent, robberies were up 8.5 percent
and assaults up 9.2 percent.
"IT HAS BECOME a shock and a
shame to our city that 50 girls have
been (sexually) attacked," said Hen-
derson, "and we don't know how many
have gone unreported."
Meanwhile, the city's grass roots an-
ti-crime efforts appeared to be gaining
steam.
About 100 parents and students at
Northern High School, where a 14-year-
old girl reported she was raped in the
school last week, met Friday in the
school library to discuss security.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - A new book,
based partly on declassified U.S.
documents, says American pilots flew
combat reconnaissance missions for
the Israelis during the 1967 war.
The book, "Taking Sides" by Stephen
Green (William Morrow and Co:, New
York), also says that the United States
turned a blind eye when Israel built a
nuclear weapon.
In addition, Green presents new
evidence on the 1967 Israeli attack on
the U.S. Navy ship "liberty," which
killed 44 people. He indicates that the
attack was not an accident as claimied
by the Israelis, and that the Israelis
even warned a U.S. military attache of
the impending attack one day before it
occurred.
The warning was ignored, and a sub-
sequent alert to the ship and the U.S.
6th Fleet was misrouted by U.S.
technicians to the Far East, the book
says.
The U.S. intelligence ship was at-
tacked, according to the book, because.
it was eavesdropping on Israeli radio
transmissions that revealed the Israelis
were breaking a cease-fire in the West
Bank and were secretly moving troops
from the western front to the Golan
Heights for a new attack there.
"Taking Sides" reviews U.S.-Israeli

relations from 1948 to the end of the Six-
Day war in 1967. Another volume is
planned by Green to bring the record up
to date.
Green, who lives in Vermont, has
been a writer and researcher for the
Council on Foreign Relations, the Car-
negie Endowment and the United
Nations Association.
Among his charges:
" U.S. pilots stationed in West Germany
were secretly flown to Israel in 1967,
where thy flew RF4C reconnaissance
missions for the.Israeli armed forces
during the fighting with Egypt. The
planes had advance cameras, as well as
side-looking radar that Israel did not
have, Green said.
President Lyndon Johnson and other
U.S. officials denied Arab charges at
the time that American pilots were
flying combat missions for the Israelis.
Neither the Defense Department nor
the Israeli Embassy have responded to
a request by United Press International
to comment on Green's charge.

Western Union satellite lost after launch

(Continued from Page 1)
They found only two large object
never tracked before and a number of
smaller pieces in orbit that would be
consistent with a failure of the satellite
to climb on its rocket.
WE attempted to communicate with
some of those objects without any suc-
cess today," Ziegler said. "We are not
at all certain these objects are Westar
VI or PAM the satellite's rocket
carrier."
Ziegler said possible causes of the
satellite-rocket failure are too many to
list. "The possibility of an explosion is
one of the; possibilities that is being
looked at," he said. "We have no con-
firming evidence it was or it was not."
A second customer, the government
of Indonesia, had NASA postpone
yesterday's shuttle launching of
Palapa-$, an electronic twin to the
Westar VI.- A decision was pending
whether to release it today or
tomorrow, or to bring it back home.
ON that decision hinged another:

should the Challenger stay up an extra
day. to accommodate the delay. , On
Tuesday and Thursday, mission
specialists Robert Stewart and Bruce
McCandless are to don back packs and
perform the first space walk without a
lifeline.
Shuttle astronauts have launched five
satellites previously, using the same
system. The satellite is attached to a
rocket stage called a "Payload Assist
Module," or PAM, which is pushed out
of the cargo by by powerful springs.
The shuttle moves eight miles away
and turns its underside to PAM to avoid
damage from the rocket blast that.

comes automatically 45 minutes later.
Since astronauts can't see the
firing, the only indication that it is
moving as planned comes from
telemetry signals..
On Friday, a ground station thought,
it had received a signal, but that proved
to be false.
