PLUNGES INTO ATLANTIC 300 FEET SHORT OF RUNWAY
Romanian jetliner crashes
From AP and UPI
NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania -A Romanian Tarom
jetliner carrying 172 persons crashed on landing'
yesterday at Nouadhibou in Mauritania, plunging in-
to the Atlantic only 300 yards short of the airport
runway, officials said.
Casualty reports conflicted. Radio Mauritania
reported that by evening, two bodies had been
recovered and 15 persons rescued with 151 persons
still listed as missing.
THE U.S. EMBASSY in Nouakchott said first
reports indicated there were "only 20 to 40 sur-
vivors." But the official Romanian news agency
Agerpres said in Bucharest that only one person was
killed in the crash and that all others, including
routines, smiles at
"several injured," had been rescued by Romanian
shipe anchored in the harbor.
A staff member of the official Mauritanian news
agency reached by telephone said the rest "are in
good health." He said the accident was being in-
vestigated and he had no immediate explanation for
the remarkably low casualty toll.-
Some passengers were picked up from the sea by
boats and others managed to swim ashore, an official
of the French airline UTA in Mauritania said.
THE AIRLINER of Tarom, the Romanian national
line, was carrying 18 crew members and 154
Romanian men due to relieve crews aboard fishing
vessels in the Atlantic, Mauritanian authorities said.
The jetliner, a Soviet-made three-engined Tupolev
154, plunged into the sea on approach to the airport at
Nouadhibou, Mauritania's principal port, with no
sign that the pilot had made a distress signal, accor-
ding to preliminary reports from the: official
Mauritanian news agency.
For unexplained reasons, the plane dipped to the
right on approach and went into the sea, according to
a UTA official.
A Mauritanian navy vessel and two trawlers
rushed to the scene, arriving before the plane had
completely broken up and while two-thirds of the
fuselage was intact above water, he said.
The injured - including the pilot, who was reported
in grave condition - were admitted to the clinic of
the National Industry and Mining Company in
Nouadhibou, the official said, and some would return
to Romania today on UTA plane.

confessed Karen, a high school
cheerleader in an ugly maize and pur-
ple outfit. Her face was long and she
wasn't bouncing. "Fourth out of eight
teams. That's terrible.
"You know why we didn't win? We
didn't smile enough. Our mounts were
perfect, but we-didn't smi-ile." She put
her hands on her maize and purple hips
and smi-iled a very good imitation
grimace of one of the winning teams.
She also uncorsciously wiggled her
breasts and moved her hips in- a tit-
tilating ishion that suggested perhaps
the winning team's smiles weren't
totally responsible for its success.
Sexy movements are stressed almost
as much as smiles. "Swing -those hips
girls! Move them in a circle, I want
them to swing!" barked a former
cheerleader to approximately 70 eager
teen-agers outside of Angell Hall during
one practice session.
AND DURING the final performance
those routines with the most alluring
swings and the most split-crotch kicks
won the heaviest applause. The
regimented routines where the girls
marched like soldiers and shot off cap
guns or performed other un-ladylike ac-
ts were given only perfunctory han-
dclaps and received raised eyebrows
from the audience.
The stereotype of the cheerleader as
the dream screw of every red-blooded
American male does not bother these
teenage cheerleaders. They- say they
don't think that description is very true-
to-life, although a junior high-schooler
named Jeanie admitted that
cheerleading is "kind of like flirting."
The consensus among several
cheerleaders resting between sessions
is that while cheerleading isn't as cool
as it was say, twenty-five years ago, it
is still a pretty cool thing to do in high
THE CHEERLEADING associations
are non-profit organizations that spon-
sor thousands of camps across the
country. They provide counselors to
teach everything a cheerleader needs
to know - pep skits, beginning gym-
nastics, partner stunts, jumps, pompon
routines, giant pyramids, crowd
sociology, and spirit-boosting ideas.
The cheerleaders pay room and
board to the University and in turn
South Quad provides them with room
and board and evening activities, in-
cluding scavenger hunts and dances
with some of the male athletes staying
in the dorm for athletic camps. The
cheerleading associations provided
style shows at night so squads can geta
glimpse of the latest fashions in
A cheerleader who especially liked
the style show confided to a friend that
everyone, just everyone, at camp wore
their hair in braids. "I think it has
something to do with Bo Derek," she
