THE PILOT, Capt. Donald K. Stitt,
said one of the turbines in the Pratt
and Whitney JT9D engine failed.
Fire engines and ambulances lined
the runway at Heathrow as flight

spokesman said. Emergency vehicles
followed the jet as -it taxied normally
to the terminal.
~ The captain said he heard "a loud
bang" soon after takeoff and shut
,down the engine.
"I DID ONE circuit of the airport
and came straight back in," Stitt told
reporters. "There were no problems.
Jt was all routine. In five years, I've
had this happen once before."

ACCORDING to Eric Schnauffer,
MSA's vice president for personnel,
Feusse 's responsibilities included
president of the board of directors of
Student Legal Services, overseer of 10
MSA committees, and supervisor of
the day-to-day MSA office functions.
Josephson said he understood his
vice president's decision to leave her
post. Since he isn't sure how MSA has
replaced executive officers in the
past, however, he has appointed MSA
parlementarian Rick Frenkel to study
the assembly's constitution and other
Josephson added, however, that he
would like to leave the ultimate
decision up to the entire assembly. He
said he will actively seek a qualified
minority or woman to replace Feusse.
IN THE meantime, Schnauffer will
assume her responsibilities on the
board of Student Legal Services, an
Cheryl Bullard, MSA's administrative
assistant, will run the MSA office. A
replacement for Feusse's spot as
chairperson of the assembly's
steering committee has not yet been
found, Josephson said.
Steve Kaplan, last Oar's vice
president of MSA, said it "just won't
be possible" for remaining assembly
members to take on Feusse's duties in
addition to their own.
Calling his successor's resignatieo
a "deep blow to MSA," Kaplan said
Feusse "didn't realistically put aside
enough time for msa." "
"It's a very time-consuming job and
it's funrealistic of her to put in ,2
hours and be an RF," he said, adding
that he was "literally in the office
during most of the day and often for
meetings at night."

her with cocaine and warned her: '51f

cerning the lethal nature of the dru
injections was the first indication tha,

fatal doses to Belushi.j

statement to Miss Smith before, and
