Sister Cindy, wife of Brother Jed, helps entertain the audience on the biag
yesterday as Brother Jed accuses the onlookers of acting on instinct like
animals instead of using our reason like humans. "The influence of alcohol
and drugs has made the students of this country so horny that'they would
even have sex with someone they knew had herpes," said Jed. Jed gave an

animated account of his life.of sin, and.tolWl how the Bible had changed his
life some ten years ago. The highlight of the harangue came when an
onlooker accused Jed of getting rich at religion's expense. Jed didn't deny he
was rich but instead replied, "Money itself is not evil,, only the love of

NEW YORK (AP) - Labor Secretary

people pleaded in-
nocent yesterday to stealing $8 million
from New York City on a subway con-
struction contract awarded two years
before Donovan joined the Reagan ad-

ting Cabinet member ever indicted -
appeared in state Supreme Court in the
Bronx along with his nine codefendants,
who include a Democratic state
senator. All pleaded innocent to a 137-
count indictment charging them with
one count of grand larceny, 125 counts
of falsifying business records and 11
counts of false filings.
THE LABOR secretary and nine
other defendants were each charged
with one count of second-degree lar-
ceny, 125 counts of falsifying business
records and 11 counts of offering false
instruments for filing.

volved in the alleged larceny was. $8
million. Conviction on the grand lar-
ceny count carries a maximum jail
term of seven years, while the other
counts carry four-year sentences.

maximum penalty on conviction of

THE INDICTMENT'also named as

The indictment said the money was
stolen from the city Transit Authority,
which gave a $186 million contract to
Schiavone as the primary contractor.
Schiavone allegedly padded payments
it made to Jopel, a subcontractor.
"They engaged in a scheme whereby
they filed inflated, phony, false records
with the Transit Authority," Bronx
District Attorney Mario Merola said.
Donovan said afterward that Merola

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Alan Trammell

with a homer, triple and single while Jack Morris pit-.
ched seven strong innings last night as the Tigers
ripped the Kansas City Royals 8-1 in the opening
game of the American League Championship Series.

THE TIGERS, baseball's most dominant team
during the regular season, pounded out 14, hits - in-
cluding home runs by Larry Herndon and Lance
Parrish - and will go for a second victory in the best-
of-five series Wednesday night when they send Dan
Petry. against 20-year-old rookie Bret Saberhagen.
Petry was 18-8 this year while Saberhagen was 10-11
but 3-1 against Detroit.
Game One was worked by a fill-ih crew of six um-
pires, who replaced striking regular umps. There
was only one controversial call, involving a sixth-in-
ning groundout by Frank White that appeared to pull
first baseman Darrell Evans off the bag, but that
play had no effect on the game.
Morris retired the first seven Royals and had a 3-0
lead before Don Slaught singled cleanly to center
with one out in the third. An out later, Willie Wilson
also singled and after Pat Sheridan fouled off two full-



count pitches and then walked to load the bases,
Morris faced his biggest challenge.
BUT HE got out of it as George Brett hit a sinking
liner to right field that Kirk Gibson caught with a
sliding grab to retire the Royals.
From then on, Morris, 19-1l during the season, was
in command. He set down nine more consecutive bat-
ters until Jorge Orta led off the seventh with a triple
and scored on Darryl Motley's groundout for Kansas
City's only run to make it 5-1.
Morris left the game after the seventh inning with a
blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.
Willie Hernandez pitched two hitless innings in
shutting down the AL West champion Royals, who
were 84-78 during the regular season but disappointed
a sellout crowd of 41,973 in dropping the playoff
opener on a gorgeous night.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(UPI) - Walter
Mondale demanded yesterday that
Ronald Reagan immediately in-
vestigate charges against Labor
Secretary Raymond Donovan and
remove him from office if there are
reasonable grounds.
"If he doesn'.t do that, it will
strengthen the case he is insensitive to
the public trust," Mondale said, step-
ping up his attack on the president's
leadership ability.

Trammell, who also walked twice in reaching base
all five times he came to the plate, smacked an RBI-
triple to key a two-run first inning and Morris made it
stand up.

'U' exercise program

CCRB stands for Certified College Ravenous Binges?
If your answer to one or more of these questions is yes, you
may be a victim of the dreaded "Freshman 10 Syndrome."
FACED WITH overwhelming workloads, social demands,
and new responsibilities, freshmen often find that their
nightly exercise consists of waddling down to the dorm snack
bar. Although weekends take students beyond these limited
perimeters, excessive consumption of alcohol often provides
additional poundage. Men gain an average of 9.1 pounds
during their first year in college while women gain an
average of 9 pounds, according to a survey of 2,400 Pen-
*nsylvania State undergraduates which was released in Sep-
The survey also showed a six to seven pound gain each year
among older students. Whether students lived on or off cam-
pus was not a factor in weight change, according to the sur-

"People who exercise regularly will have lower
weight fluctuations," said Prof. Adam Drewnowski of the
School of Public Health, who is currently coducting a survey
at the University on eating disorders. He added that
overeating is often a stress reaction to new college respon-
"(Exercise) is a safety-valve escape from stress . . . that

Dr. Robert Winfield, also from the School of Public Health,
attaches similar importance to exercise as a "stress-
management tool."

"hogwash" and a violation of his clients' constitutional
rights. He asked the high court to order the county to
register the men: Ricky Albrecht, David Barber, Craig

Ron Morison. At some time during the flight, Fyfe started
to lose altitude, Morrison said. He did not have a parachute
and cut himself loose from the balloons when he realized he
was about to crash into a farm building. "He decided
rather than hit the building he would bail out," Morrison
said. "He's pretty damn lucky. It could have been a whole
lot worse." Fyfe reportedly reached an altitude as high as
8,000 feet during the flight, officials said.

who has seat 104, will be guests of the Cubs. Cubs legend
has it that in 1945, Sianis' uncle, tavern founder William
"Billy Goat" Sianis, put a hex on the Cubs, making the
team forever pennant-proof, all because his goat was kept
out of a World Series game at Wrigley Field. In 1970,
Willian Sianis died. In 1981, after the Cubs invited a Sianis
goat to a game, Sam Sianis lifted the hex. This year the
Cubs made it to post-season play for the first time since
