HOLDOUTS AGREE TO RESCUE PLAN
Banks to aid Chrysler
DETROIT (UPI) - Hard-line banks in Indiana and
Illinois that refused to go along with Chrysler Corp.'s
federal aid plan agreed last night to take part in the
restructuring scheme, the troubled automaker said.
Earlier in the day, other holdout banks in St. Louis,
Mo., and Houston agreed to join in the Chrysler plan,
company officials said.
CHRYSLER OFFICIALS said that left two holdout
banks - one in the United States and one in West
Germany - standing in the way of the federally
guaranteed loans the automaker needs to avoid
Chrysler spokesmen announced during the evening
that People's Trust of Fort Wayne, Ind., had agreed
to end its holdout and reported a few hours later that
American National Bank and Trust of Rockford, Ill.,
had joined on.
American National was viewed as the most stub-
born of the few relatively small banks refusing to go
along with the government's Chrysler rescue plan.
SOME OF THOSE banks had maintained the Num-
ber Three automaker will go broke even with the
federal bailout effort.
All of the 400 banks and other lending institutions
with which Chrysler has outstanding debts must okay
the aid plan for the rescue scheme to go through.
Word the two banks had agreed to go along with the
aid package came after a special government panel
was forced to postpone a meeting in Washington
where it planned to okay $500 million in federally
backed loans for Chrysler.
It was the fourth time in a week the Chrysler Loan
Guarantee Board had been forced to put off such a
meeting. Federal officials said they were optimistic
the aid plan could be approved at another meeting
Chrysler financial officials were quoted Wed-
nesday as saying the company could find itself broke
within a week if it could not start drawing on the
federally guaranteed loans.

EVERYMAN FOR HIMSELF AND GOD AGAINST ALL
(Werner Herzog, 1975) 8:40 MLB 3
A film concerned with madness and alienation, based on the legendary
Kasper Hauser story about a man who mysteriously appears in a German
town with no memory or experience of life. Herzog's perspective is darkly
mysterious, a vision which dissolves the comforting surfaces of everyday life
to reveal the nightmare beneath. The portrayal of Kasper by Bruno S., a
psychotic with a similar case history, is amazing, as intense as it is uncon-
ventional. The most popular film of the 1975 Cannes Film Festival. ". . . a
stunning fable full of universals. A superb movie."-N.Y. TIMES. In German
