Judge won't drop
suit against Carson

LOS ANGELES (UPI) - A federal
judge yesterday refused to dismiss a
$70 million lawsuit against "Tonight
Show" host Johnny Carson and his
lawyer over alleged irregularities when
they were on the board of directors of a
bank that failed.
"There are just too many questions of
fact to be answered," U.S. District
Court Judge Laughlin Waters said in
refusing to dismiss the action.
The suit, brought by two of the bank's
former directors, concerns allegations
of irregularities in the operation of the
Commercial Bank of California, based
in West Hollywood.
Carson and his attorney, Henry
Bushkin, served on the board of direc-
tors before the bank was put into

receivership in May because of its
precarious financial condition. The
bank re-opened in June under new
The suit alleges that Bushkin violated
parts of the "racketeer Influenced and
Corrup Organizations Act" and that an
organized crime figure was involved in
the alleged irregularities.
The suit said that Bushkin violated the
racketeering act by using the bank to
"further the interests of persons
engaged in organized criminal ac-
tivities" and to arrange loans with
"known underworld figures."
Carson was not tied to any of the
racketeering charges, but Michael
Miller and Arthur Kopelson, said the
television talk show host had not lived
up to various agreements.

Freshmen wiser, more elite

iversity is not sacrificing quality while it
cuts back.
"THE FACT that the quality of the
student body is being maintained and
even increased, in a time of increasing
competition for the most highly
qualified students, is evidence of the
University's strong commitment to in-
stitutional excellence in a time of
limited resources," Frye said.
"The rise in SAT scores for incoming
freshmen indicates that the University
has maintained academic quality
despite the budget cuts," added
Fewer incoming freshmen, however,
rank in the top of their high school
classes, Sjogren said.
On the average this year's incoming
freshmen graduated in the top 9 percent
of their high school class. Last year, the
average freshman graduated in the top
8 percent.
THIS DECREASE isn't significant,
according to Sjogren, because students
are coming from top high schools
nationwide, and it is tougher for them to

rank at the top against so many other
highly-qualified students.
Nationally, SAT scores went up about
two points for the first time ina decade.
This year's incoming engineering
students are "awesome" according to
Sjogren. The average math SAT scores
jumped 80 points to about 700, verbal
scores stayed the same for incoming
engineering freshmen, Sjogren said.

Think ugly
BARTENDERS IN Houston are saying "Ugly is as ugly does" this
month, as they don strange make-up, fake noses, and awful clothing in
efforts to win the "Ugliest Bartender Contest." The Houston chapter of the
Multiple Sclerosis Society has equipped 160 bartenders across the city with
"ugly kits" for the contest, set to begin today and last three weeks. The kits
include T-shirts, posters, and buttons that sport the slogans, "Let's Get
Ugly" and "Think Ugly." "Everybody has a beauty contest. This is much
more original and unusual idea," said Vicki Uchida, executive director of the
chapter, one of about 100 that will be host of the contest this year. "the bar-
tenders don't necessarily have to be physically ugly," she said. "there are
lots of things they can do to make themselves look ugly." Bar patrons cast
votes for the ugliest at 25 cents a shot.
