Plane crashes into
school, killing 22

Gunman caught
near Reagan

BANGUI, Central African Republic
(AP) - A French fighter plane
crashed into a school yesterday,
killing 22 people - many of them
children - and touching off a violent
anti-French demonstration in this
former colony, officials said.
Thirty people were injured when the
jet crashed into the school in a heavily
populated Moslem neighborhood. The
fighter jet's pilot ejected safely.
FRANCE which maintains an air
base in Bangui, announced it would
pay compensation to victims'
families.
- As rescue workers searched the
debris of the Koranic school for trap-
ped survivors, security forces moved
to try to quell angry crowds who were
throwing rocks at cars driven by
Europeans.
French Consul General Albert
Couloud said several French people
were slightly injured by rocks. "A
violent anti-European movement is
developing," he said of the two-hour-
long protest.
ABOUT 50 French people took

refuge in the French Embassy, em-
bassy officials said. There are 3,500
French residents of the Central
African Republic and 1,600 French
soldiers are based in the landlocked
country.
President Andre Kolingba appealed
for calm in an address on state radio
and called the victims "martyrs for
peace." The radio read a message of
condolence from French President
Francois Mitterand and played
religious music throughout the day.
Kolingba declared Friday a day of
national mourning.
The radio called on the staff of the
central medical hospital, where the
survivors were taken, to report for
work and intermittenly appealed for
blood donors.
In Paris, French Minister for
cooperation Michel Aurillac announ-
ced that France would compensate
familites of the victims "as soon as
possible and as completely as
possible." He did not say how much
money France would distribute.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Secret
Service agents yesterday arrested a
man on charges of carrying a con-
cealed pistol outside the hotel where
President Reagan was to speak,
police said.
Spokesman John Marie said Ronald
Wilson, 33 of Ferriday, was in custody
on a charge of carrying a concealed
weapon, a 25-caliber automatic.
MARIE said Wilson told authorities
he had permission to carry the pistol
although he had no identification on
him at the time.
"He said he is a special deputy and
ambulance driver with the Concordia
(civil) Parish Sheriff's Department,

and the department has confirmed
that," Marie said.
However, he said police had not
determined whether Wilson's status
included authorization to carry a gun.
Wilson was arrested outside the
downtown Hilton Hotel.
"He asked some Secret Service
agents if he could come in," Marie
said. "They told him no and when he
started walking away, they noticed
the pistol inhis right rear pocket."
Reagan came to New Orleans to
help the campaign of Rep. Henson
Moore (R-La.) who is running for the
U.S. Senate seat currently held by
retiring Sen. Russell Long.

Police arrest two French
doctors in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Two French doctors said
Thursday they tried to stop the
violence when police in a black
homeland shot 11 people dead at a
rally and wounded scores, but were
peaten and thrown in jail.
"When we tried to tell police we
were from France, they refused to
believe us and accused us of being
rommunists and terrorists," Dr.
Benedicte Chanut, 29, told reporters
in Pretoria. Ms. Chanut said she and
Or. Vincent Faucherre, 31, were held
after Wednesday's shootings for 12
hours until French diplomats inter-
vened.
, SOUTH AFRICAN police said they
tsed shotguns on a crowd in the
Crossroads shantytown near Cape
Town yesterday, killing two blacks
and wounding two. That brought to 30
the number of blacks killed in anti-
apartheid unrest since Tuesday, 27 by
police and 3 in fighting among blacks.
, The white-minority government ex-

tended for another year a ban on out-
door meetings in effect since the
Soweto riots of 1976 and bans imposed
last year on indoor meetings held to
promote school boycotts and labor
strikes.
Education Minister Gerrit Viljoen
issued a statement in Cape Town ac-
cusing black militants of "abusing
education for ulterior political pur-
poses." He said there was "no reason
why education should not resume
normally at the beginning of the
second term on April 2."
The black National Education
Crisis Committee has scheduled a
meeting this weekend in Durban to
consider possible renewal of student
boycotts.
As many as 200,000 of the 1.8 million
urban black students stayed out of
classes last year. Boycotts were
suspended in January until the end of
March so the government could act on
political and educational demands.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - Seven
asteroids discovered since 1980 will be
named for the astronauts killed in the
explosion of the shuttle Challenger.
The namings continue a tradition
begun on the first day of the 19th cen-
tury when an asteroid tracked from
Sicily was named for the island's
matron goddess Ceres. said Brain
Marsden of the Minor Planet Center
at Harvard University.
THE ASTEROIDS named for the
astronauts are notable for being
tracked from one observatory,
operated by Harvard in Flagstaff,
Ariz., Marsden said yesterday. They
are the first to be named for
astronauts, he said.
"All seven happened to be
discovered at the observatory bet-
ween 1980 and 1984," he said. "Seven
in a row at the same place - that's
hard to find."
The International Astronomical
Union of Paris handles the naming of
celestial objects, sometimes through
its Minor Planet Center in Cam-

bridge, which is part of the Harvard
Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
DANIEL W.E. GREEN of the cen-
ter said the names become official
with the publication fo the Minor
Planet Circulars. The latest circulars
were scheduled for Wednesday, "but
we're running a little late."
The asteroids are believed to be five
to 10 miles in diameter and most orbit
the sun in the asteroid belt between
the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, Green
said.
Edward Bowell, director of the
minor planet program at the
Flagstaff observatory, discovered six
of the asteroids; the seventh was
discovered by his colleague, Norman
G. Thomas.
The decision to honor the astronauts
who died in the Jan. 28 explosion was
"something several of us thought
would be fitting and proper,",Thomas
said.
The asteroids were numbered 3350
through 3356. To be numbered,
asteroids must have calculated orbits.

hands out money to strangers in downtown

An anonymous man
Muskegon, MI.

a gives away money

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP)-This factory
town on Lake Michigan can't decide
whether a man who pops up in public
places and passes out greenbacks is
the epitome of generosity or gim-
mickry.
The anonymous man, wearing a
pin-striped suit and flashing a thick
wad of cash, for the past week has
turned up on city streets, in
restaurants and in supermarkets to
pass out various amounts of cash -
mostly $5 and $10 bills - and pay food
bills.
A RADIO STA.TION widely suspec-
ted to be behind the man's appearan-
ces reported yesterday, in what it
billed as "exclusive" coverage of his

giveaway spree, that the man recen-
tly was making random donations at
local charities.
Whover he is, Muskegonites aren't
sure whether he's a well-heeled
benefactor or merely the star of a
publicity stunt that panders to
people's greed.
"I just thought he was a guy with a
lot of money who wanted to do
something nice," said Jackie
Schrader as she shopped in a down-
town mall. But her husband, Steve,
disagreed.
"I thought it was some kind of
promotion," he said. "But if I see him
and he wants to give me money, I
might take it."

MEETING
For students interested

administrator would be able to take
action to protect others from the ac-
cused. For example, a student from a
residence hall who is accused of set-
ting a fire could be barred from the
residence hall.
BUT within 14 days, the University
would be required either to hold a
hearing to determine if the punish-
ment should be extended.
Under the council's recommen-
dations, the hearing would be heard
by a three-member board made up of
one student, one faculty member, and
one administrator.
The student would be chosen ran-
domly by the central cooridinator
from a pool of students supplied by
MSA, the faculty member from a pool
suppled by the facult's Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University Af-
fairs, and the administrator from a
pool given by the University
president.
THE HEARING board would then
either dismiss the case or apply san-
ctions ranging from barring the ac-
cused from a person or a place to
requiring counseling.
At the request of Susan Eklund,
associate dean of the law school and
one of three administrators on the
council, the council yesterday decided

to drop the possibility of forcing the
student to pay fines.
"I don't see how retribution has to
do with protecting the community. I
think this is a case where we get our-
selves a lawyer and go to court for our
money." she said.
OPPONENTS of the code have
argued that the University should
deal with crimes through the criminal
or civil courts, where the accused is
guarded by constitutional rights.
The board would have to issue a
unanimous verdict to punish a
student, council members agreed.
One complaint against the council's
draft has been the lack of any formal
rules of evidence. But it would be im-
possible to expect members of the
hearing board to be trained in the ap-
plication of these rules, said Suzanne
Cohen, a law student and co-chair of
the council.
Instead, board membes would be
taught - either through a pamphlet
or a lecture - about the principles
behind formal rules of evidence,
councilmembers said.
The accused would also have the
right to an appeal. If the accused is
found innocent, the victim would be
able to appeal if new evidence is un-
covered.
