Swiss police capture
Air France hijacker

GENEVA, Switzerland (UPI) -
Swiss Police posing as caterers yester-
day overpowered the hijacker of an Air
France Boeing 737 bent on flying to
Libya and freed unharmed all 61
passengers and crew aboard.
Police identified the hijacker as Ali
Chohra, 28, a resident of Darmstadt,
near Frankfurt in West Germany.
Swiss officials said he had an Algerian
passport.
THE HIJACKER forced the Frank-
furt-to-Paris flight, with a crew of six
and 62 mostly West German
passengers, to land at Geneva's Coin-
trin airport. Seven people were
released soon after landing.
He demanded the plane be refueled to
fly to Libya but made no other deman-
ds, police said. Officials in Geneva were
baffled as to his motive.
"There are no political overtones and
no political explanation," said Justice

and Police Minister Guy Fontanet of
the Geneva state government, and the
hijacker made no claim to belong to any
political or religious group.
POLICE SAID the man had no gun
and was apparently armed only with a
knife. He was carrying a backpack, and
the pilot "not wanting to take any chan-
ces" that it contained explosives,
followed the hijacker's orders.
After a request from Fontanet the
hijacker released the six women
passengers aboard the plane as well as
one man with a bad heart soon after
landing. The crew and the other 55 male
-ssengers ramained in the aircraft.
'he hijacker asked for drinks and
later for food. Swiss police, posing as
caterers, overpoered the man about 4
hours after the plane landed in Geneva
as he was sitting in the cockpit behind
the pilot.

spotlight and proceeded to talk, in a very casual
manner, about some of the most complex music writ-
ten in this century.
The man, composer Elliott Carter, came to Ann
Arbor for a special celebration of his 75th birthday,
which culminated in two consecutive concerts of his
music. Carter expressed cordial wishes that the
audience might enjoy his unconventional new music,
along with some apologies for his earlier, more
traditional works. "I don't know why I didn't supress
this music, but it's part of my past and like the rest of
us, I guess I'll just have to live with it," he said.
In reference to Night Fantasies, a piece in his new
style, Carter said he refined his music, excluding all
thematic material and including only those things
which were real and vivid. He described Fantasies as
"the way your mind goes from one thing to another
when you're lying awake at night."
Guest artist Robert Conway captured this at-

mosphere beautifully. Diabolically complex rhythms
posed no problem for the young pianist; his agile
fingers scurried across the keys, simulating those
mysterious "things that go bump in the night." Con-
way changed textures just as the mind wanders in a
stream of consciousness; shifting from single notes to
dreamy chords, to dissonant melodies accompanied
by rich harmonies, all with lightning speed.
Other guest soloists, baritone Stephen Morscheck,
and mezzo-soprano Julia Pedigo, made Carter's
Syringa a dramatic event. Scored for strings, winds,
percussion, guitar and vibraphone, this piece was
a simultaneous performance of two different texts.
Morscheck sang powerful words, based on the
dialogues of Plato, in ancient Greek. Their meaning
forced him to use a voice so strong, at times it was
almost a shout. Pedigo's more lyric setting employed
poems in English by John Ashbery. Her dark con-
tralto voice made each phrase sound velvety.
Another interesting team of soloists, three per-
cussionists, presented works from Carter's
programmatic Pieces for Four Timpani. Mark
Goodenberger, Lon Grabowski, and Brian Prechtl,
performed with confidence and charisma.
Contemporary Directions also did tremendous

work in various small chamber combinations. Upper
winds shone in Carter's Woodwind Quintet; flautist
Jennifer Keeney generated rhythmic impetus, oboist
Nancy Ambrose spun suave melodies and clarinetist
Jane Carl performed impossibly syncopated phrases
with beautiful shapes and creamy tones.
Other members of CD exhibited great
professionalism in the form of musical leadership.
First trumpet, Bill Camp, played with authority in
Carter's brass quintet Fantasy about Purcell's Fan-
tasia upon one note, and harpsichordist Pamela Nash
gave a laudable performance of her difficult part in
Sonata. Made up of many small gestures that accen-
tuate the quick decay of the harpsichord's sound, this
piece kept flautist Leslie Bulbuk, oboist Martha
Stokeley, and cellist Anna Richert, playing and
listening to each other intently.
Meanwhile, Nash created many different effects;
attacking full chords quickly for great splashes of
color, carefully striking resonant repeated notes,
making numerous fussy registration changes ef-
ficiently, and playing continous passagework that
hummed and buzzed in a whirl of sound.
Bravo CD! A fine performance is the best birthday
present a composer could hope for.

one-act play Incident at Vichy.
The drama, which opens Thursday at
Bnai Brith Hillel Auditorium, has a
predominantly Jewish, but socially
eclectic .mixture of characters who
tensely converse as they await their
summons by the demonic Nazi in-
terrogator (Tiff Crutchfield). Miller
uses their nervous conversation to
examine idealism and responsibility in
society. As victims disappear into the
office but do not re-emerge, an almost
palpable tension builds.-
The electrician, Bayard (David
Kane), hides his apprehension with im-
passioned, but faulty, socialist jargon,
while Monceau (Aaron Gilbert), the ac-
tor, uses a more eloquent but equally
unrealistic optimism to distance him-
self from his imminent fate. Leduc
(Mark Kaplan) is a pschoanalyst who
refuses to accept passivity, and attacks
their weak arguments with bitter sar-
casm.
The only captive who is sure that he

will gain release is Von Berg (Robert
Csetri), the Austrian prince. He listens
to the debate surrounding him, and, at
first, interjects with naive optimism,
but gradually exchanges it for a
realization of the atrocities awaiting
the victims. Forlorn, he cries, "What
can ever save us?"
At this point, the play takes a definite
turn. After delivering the diagnosis, the
drama constructs a cure. It is not found
in the German Major (Chuck Husa),
who agonizes over his unwilling role in
the horror because he cannot meet
Leduc's demand: "I want not your guilt
but your responsibility." The answer
comes instead from Von Berg, who
deals with his own implication in the
evil he opposes, then sacrifices himself
to save a man who he had never seen
before that morning.
Miller's subtlety makes the ending a
mixture of triumph and tragedy, and
his heavy historical references make
the story chilling and believeable.
These qualities spurred Howard Taub-
man of the New York Times to call it "a

moving play, a searching play, one of
the most important plays of our time."
The production is being staged in con-
junction with the 1984 Conference on the
Holocaust, and is both produced and
directed by University students. It runs
two evenings only: Thursday March 8,
and Sunday, March 11, both at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are available at Hillel, 663-3336,
