PEKING (UPI) - A musician
touring with the British rock duo Wham
went berzerk aboard a Chinese airliner,
stabbed himself in the stomach, and in-
vaded the cockpit of the plane, sending
it into a nosedive before he was sub-
dued, it was reported yesterday.
The musician, identified only as a Por-
tuguese trumpeter in his early 30s
named Oliveira, was under observation
at a Peking hospital, Portuguese Am-
bassador Antonio da Costa said.
A BRITISH Embassy spokesman
said the incident took place Monday on
a scheduled flight from Peking to Can-
ton. Wham members Andrew ridgeley
and George Michael and other mem-
bers of their entourage were not aboard
the aircraft at the time.
"The plane immediately returned to
Peking and dropped off the man before
continuing to Guangzhou (Canton),"
the spokesman said.
A spokesman for the state-run Civil
Aviation Administration of China con-
firmed that a jetliner bound for Canton
had returned to Peking shortly after
takeoff Monday but refused to discuss
further details.
Diplomats said passengers reported

Ford, Carter meet with
Soviets on arms control

ATLANTA (UPI) - Former presidents Gerald Ford and
Jimmy Carter and many of the nation's top foreign policy
experts joined with a key Soviet delegation yesterday to open
an international arms control conference.
The five-day meeting at the Carter Center on the Emory
University campus was called by Ford and Carter to seek to
bridge the differences among atomic nations and a means to
curb the arms race.
AMBASSADOR Anatoly Dobrynin led the Soviet
delegation. Also attending are representatives from China,
Korea, Japan, France, Great Britian, and West Germany.
Other participants include former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger, former Secretaries of, Defense James
Schlesinger and Harold Brown; former Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance, and former national security aides Zbigniew
Brzezinski, McGeorge Edwin, and Brent Scowcroft.
The sessions were closed to the press and public yesterday
and today. No reason was given for closing the sessions, but
several participants, including Kissinger and Dobrynin, have
said diplomacy requires privacy.

CARTER, who entered the White House promising open
negotiations, was quickly convinced of the merits of private
meetings between world leaders. He has said he wants the
Carter Center to provide a place for such meetings.
But the sessions tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday will be
open and heavy media coverage is expected.
The meeting is the third session hosted by the two former
presidents' whq held a similar session at the University of
Michigan last fall.
Ford and Carter became close friends after Carter left of-
fice, but during the 1976 presidential debates Carter offended
Ford by attacking his foreign policy record.
"As far as foreign policy goes," candidate Carter said,
"Mr. Kissinger has been the president of this country. Mr.
Ford has shown an absence of leadership and an absence of a
grasp of what this country is and what it ought to be."
That assessment angered Ford.
"This was a cheap shot at Kissinger and me," he said. "Of
course, I got Henry's advise on foreign policy, but I made the
decisions myself."

Program in order to help them under-
stand that they were attracted to par-
ticular films specifically because of
their satirical form and content.
Reflecting on his nomination of
Scanlan for the annual awards, Pilot
Program Chairman David Schoem said
program faculty "select people who
really care about the students."
OR CONSIDER Robert McCalla, a
TA in the political science department
who hauls a copy of The New York
Times to each class and begins the
period by asking his students: "So
what's happening in the world today?"
McCalla was one of two political
science TAs honored yesterday.
Melanie Manion, who teaches Introduc-
tion to Comparative Politics and an up-
per-division course called "China's
Evolution under Communism," draws
on her first-hand experiences as a
student in China for extra spice.
The Department of Political Science
has four criteriawhich its TAs must
meet, according to department chair-
man John Kingdon.
THE FIRST, he said, is thorough
knowledge with classroom material.
Second is dedication and readiness to
spend time with students outside the
classroom. Positive student reaction in
course evaluations and personal com-
mitment is a third criterion. Moreover.
Kingdon said the TAs must have
"evidence of pouring creative energy
into their studies."
Chairs of other departments echoed
Kingdon's criteria for judging TAs.
Together they narrowed down their
choices for outstanding TAs of the year
to 30 and submitted them to the Senate
Advisory Committee on University Af-
fairs for final selection. The selection
panel had 10 days to sift though piles of
teacher evaluations, nomination forms,
and letters of achievement and
recognition, according to Judy Nowack,
executive assistant to SACUA.
Carleen LePage, a TA in Romance
languages, said she makes a special ef-
fort to turn around students who are
failing early in the semester.
"What's the most frustrating," she
said after the luncheon, "is that most
students are there because the class is
required or just need a C minus. But a
couple, who you know will go far, make
it all worthwhile."
Other recipients of the awards were
Jefford Vahlbush, German; Drew
Western, psychology; Gary Garrison,
communication; Robert Gensemer,
biological sciences; and Paul Erb,
comparative literature and Great

South Africa. The rest is being kept
because of the companies provide jobs
in the state and the stocks provide a
basis for a lawsuit against the state
fighting legislation mandating the
divestments. ,

all agreed that student activism is on
the rise, attributing it to recent events.
"Obviously the new, vieious, crack-
down by the South African police on

tics they're using and the goals."
Morris pointed out that as in the 60s,
today's students are doing "complicity
research." He compared the way
students protested universities' roles in
the war effort of the 60s to the way
students, now are protesting univer-
sities' investments in South Africa.
