Tail First
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (/P)-A
kangaroo was loose'yesterday.
The zoo advised citizens to
grab him by the tail.
"Kangaroos sit on their tails
when they kick," said Ken
Howard, the zoo's keeper. "If
you hold it he can't kick, but
hold it with both hands."
The 14-month-old kangaroo,
named Parky, was on loan by
the zoo to a television station.

By JIM DYGERT
The midwest's curious weather
erupted yesterday from something
irksome to something awesome
bringing sudden and unexpected
ed destruction.
Michigan suffered the worst of
March's onslaught as 75-mile-per-
hour winds ripped the southern
half of the lower peninsula, leav-
ing behind them torn off roofs

New charter terminates the
charter status of many of the
boards, which now have jurisdic-
tion over city departments. Howev-
er, it empowers the council to ap-
point groups to advise the depart-
ments.
"Charter Will Pass"
"The charter will pass. There's
no question in my mind that it'll
pass," the mayor predicted.
"It took the charter commission
two years to make up their minds,
and they only give the voters twoj
weeks to make up theirs," he said,
explaining tomorrow's meeting.
"I'm a little teed off about that
sort of thing."
Charter Revision CommissionI
Chairman Lawrence Ouimet took
issue with the mayor, saying the
commission announced its deci-
sions pretty much as it made them
during the course of its study of
the charter. He said the decision
has been known to the mayor and
the public for around a year.
Ouimet's group held public
hearings on "what we called the
charter's 'unfinished form'" in De-
cember and January, he said. "Mi-
