detectives were assigned yesterday to
look for Sherri Ellis, a former room-
mate of the late anti-nuclear activist
Karen Silkwood. She was reported
missing along with her unpublished
manuscript about the Silkwood case,
Police said they had no evidence of
foul play and were treating the reported
disappearance as "a missing person
ELLIS, WHO was contaminated with
radioactive plutonium as was Silkwood,
wrote a book about the case and was to
meet with New York publishers next
month, said her sister, Linda Ellis.
Sherri Ellis failed to return to her
sister's northside home after leaving
for a drive Sunday night, Linda Ellis
said. Her pickup truck was found at the
home early Monday, its passenger door
open and the keys inside on the floor-
board, her sister said.
Sgt. Tom Mundy, who characterized
Sherri Ellis as a recluse, said the
department is treating the report as a
missing person case. "There is nothing
to establishany foul play," he said.
LINDA ELLIS said a check Monday
by friends at her sister's rural home
near Guthries, 20 miles from Oklahoma
City, showed the animals kept there
had not been fed nor the eggs gathered.
"If someone has her (Sherri) for cer-
tain reasons, I'm sure it is for the

book," Linda Ellis said, explaining her
26-year-old sister had been working on
the manuscript for five years.
The 250-page book was finished, Linda
Ellis said, and her sister had just spent
a week with a typist working on a final
HER SISTER kept the manuscript
with her at all times, and it was also
missing, Linda Ellis said.
"She said she was kind of scared,"
she said of her sister, a rodeo barrel
racing champion known as "Dusty."
"I've contacted everyone I know that
she knew, and everyone I know that
they know," Ellis said.
Sherri Ellis and Silkwood were rom-
mates in Edmond for about six months
before Silkwood died in a car crash
Nov. 13, 1974. At the time of her death,
she allegedly was carrying documen-
tation of violations of nuclear safety
regulations to a ' meeting with an
Atomic Workers union official and a
New York Times reporter.
THE WOMEN both worked at the
Ker-McGee Nuclear Corp. plutonium
processing plant in Crescent. Tests of
their feces showed they had been inter-
nally contaminated with plutonium.
The Silkwood estate was awarded
$10.5 million last year after a U.S.
District Court jury determined Kerr-
McGee was responsible for Silkwood's
contamination. The company is ap-

pealing the verdict.
She was arrested July 2, 1975 at the
plant after allegedly scaling the fence
carrying a .22-calibre rifle. She was
reported to have yelled, "I want to be
killed," as she climbed the fence, police
said. The rifle was not loaded, Officials
found marijuana in her car.
Sherri Ellis was given a one-year
deferred sentence after pleading guilty
to forcible entry and possession of
marijuana. In August 1976 the charges
were erased from her record.

Neal agreed, saying, "We get our
identity from our jobs ... Those who
have good 'support systems,' people at
home to cheer them up, fare much bet-
ter when they are laid off."
Kahn offered a suggestion to help
alleviate the problem. "While making
more jobs-available may be a sensible
recommendation to nake at the
national level, it won't work at the state
level, where there aren't the resources
available. The negative effects of
unemployment could be minimized,
however, if there were more people.

hours." Kahn said he recognized the
labor and management problems that
would result from implementing the
idea, but said he would like to see in-
dustry officials iron out those problems.

'U' students will rise early, take a
plethora of math, English, and
language placement exams, attend
meetings, and receive counseling to
ready them for the coup de grace:
registration for classes which may
have been closed for weeks.
Heidi Winik, assistant director of
orientation, explained that one of the
goals of orientation is to familiarize the
students with the physical layout of the
University as well as the Ann Arbor
"Orientation also gives them the op-
portunity to talk to students and ask
them the hundreds of questions they

have about being at school here," Winik
explained. She added that orientation is
also a place for students to meet each
And at dinner last night, that is just
what many of the students were doing.
Most-of them opted for the salad bar
rather than the veal, and they fooled
with the food as they shook hands and
exchanged courtesies.
"I didn't know anybody here," said
Dawn Parker of Toledo, and as she
looked at the three persons with whom
she was sitting, she added, "until now."

because it can take high temperatures.
It also withstands friction well, and is
