Military troops from the Republic of China crossed Vietnamese bor- ders Saturday climaxing a four-year dispute between the two countries.
But China's attack was stopped about six miles inside the Viet- namese border Monday and western intelligence sources said that some Chinese units were pulling back.
Unconfirmed reports from Moscow said mat all Soviet military leaves had been canceled and troops were alerted. The Soviets warned China Sunday to pull out of Vietnam immediately.
News Views asked 10 persons how they thought the United States should react to China's invasion.
Of those 10, nine favored no U.S. involvement and one said the U.S. should become involved but "not militarily."
Gregory A. Fednrek, senior; "I think the United States should sit
back right now. Let China and Vietnam do what they want, and have the United States stay out of it If Russia attacks China, we should help them out of it because think of all those soldiers on the Russia-China border."
Carla J. Cofer, senior; "I don't think the United States
should get involved at all. It wasn't popular before with the United States in Vietnam so I don't think they should get involved again."
Ronald J. Schtemmell, Junior; "I don't think we should do anything
at all. We should tell China not to go in and attack but we shouldn't get in- volved at all. I don't want to see another war. If they had a war, I wouldn't go. I'd take my fishing pole and go to Canada."
Carol A. Zychowicz, freshman; "I think they (the U.S.) ought it be
really careful about it because it is a sticky situation. We were talking last night in the dorm and we were really scared because what if the U.S. got into another war and we have enough problems of our own ?"
Kermetta U Folmar, sophomore; "I don't think the U.S. should in-
tervene because we have enough problems of our own. I know we have good relations with China but other countries are just using the U.S. and the U.S. will eventually have to pay."

OAPSE wants to be workers' bargaining agent By Paula Wtnslow
Assistant Managing Editor
The Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE) Monday night announced that it will ask the University Board of Trustees for permission to hold an election to name OAPSE as the exclusive bargaining agent for classified employees.
Don Turko, OAPSE area director,
said that he was encouraged by the attendance of more than 75 of the nearly 1,000 classified workers and that support for the organization is moun- ting.
A return of more than 30 percent of the pledge cards which have been distributed to employees since Dec. 1 also is evidence of employees' desire to be unionized, he said.
"WE FEEL THAT we have more
than enough cards to evidence the need for an election," Turko said.
He said he hopes an election can be held in early May. OAPSE never has been involved in a unionization vote at a college or university, but only at elementary and secondary institutions.
The campaign for unionization would compare to the one held last month for faculty collective bargaining, he noted.

University may get *3 million By Cynthia Lelse Staff Reporter
Little more than a fluke kept the University from receiving $3 million in state capital Improvement funds for the pool in the Student Recreation Center last year, but a University official said he is hopeful the money will be included in the Ohio governor's next biennial budget.
University Vice President Richard A. Edwards said he thinks that the $3 million will be included in Gov. James A Rhodes's budget, which is to be released in mid-March.
However, he cautioned that the Ohio General Assembly once again could stop the money from being allocated to the University.
IF THE UNIVERSITY receives the funds, the $29 students pay every quarter for the rec center could be lowered $5 or J6.
Edwards said the University almost received the money last summer when former Rep. Charles F. Kurfuss (R- Bowling Green) included it in the supplemental ap- propriations bill, one of the last bills considered by the General Assembly in the last session.
But he said the bill was shot down for political reasons, stopping the money from being given to the University. The bill had been tacked on to another bill that was
defeated. "It got zapped at the eleventh hour," Edwards said,
adding that publicity surrounding that political maneuvering has raised consciousness in Columbus about the money owed to the University.
He said that consciousness and the fact that most other state universities have received funds for similar pools or capital improvements used for instructional purposes makes him think that the money will be released to the University.
"WE'RE HOPEFUL- we have our fingers crossed," Edwards said. "In the interest of fairness and equity, Bowling Green should get the same (as other Ohio universities)."
He said some pools and other facilities built at other universities cost more than the $3,2 million that the Cooper Pool cost.
Edwards said the Ohio Board of Regents initially supported the construction of the pool in the rec center but wanted the University to delay construction of the center pending the funding of the pool by the state.
But Edwards said stopped construction would have cost the University money in canceled or delayed contracts and the facility also may not have been opened for several years, so construction proceeded.
rhetorical debates like this faculty did," he said. "This is a neat labor approach, not a philosophical question."
HE SAID bargaining would be done by three chapters of employees that OAPSE hopes to establish in March. The groups, one each from food ser- vices, clerical and technical services and operational demands, would negotiate employee benefits, working conditions, job assignment regulations and grievance procedures.
OAPSE maybe unapposed by any other employee organizations if the board grants an election. Basil D. Warner, building maintenance repairman and president of the University chapter of Ohio Civil Service Employees Association (OCSEA), said that group has no plans to petition for an election.
"I Just don't feel that they're (OAPSE) as good an organization as we are and we don't have to run them down," he said. OCSEA has about 300 members at the University.
THE COMMUNICATION Workers of America, another employee organization with University mem- bership, was unavailable for comment.
Also discussed at the meeting was a suit filed last week in Wood County Common Pleas Court seeking an order for the University personnel depart- ment to release for inspection public information about classified em- ployees.
Turko said OAPSE asked Richard J. Rehmer, director of personnel, for permission to see the files to verify sworn testimonies about unfair per- sonnel practices given to OAPSE lawyers by University employees.
AFTER SEVERAL requests to Reh- mer were left unanswered, OAPSE filed the complaint. Rehmer contends that he was reluctant to release the files because he was unsure which records were public information and which were confidential.
Rehmer sent OAPSE a reply ex- plaining his reasons for not allowing an inspection of the files the day after the complaint was filed. He said the
University's legal counsel is in- vestigating the possibility of an in- vasion of employee privacy if certain records are released.
A hearing date has not been set. Rehmer said that several employees
are worried that personal information might be divulged if OAPSE is allowed to view their records.
Turko said employees he has talked with are not as upset about OAPSE's attempts to see the files as Rehmer claims.
•rr WAS EVIDENCED last night (Monday) that employee support is very much that we should be going after these records," Turko said, adV

Hemophilia benefit offers creative opportunities By Mary Dannemlller
Staff Writer The "Tlpover For Hemophilia"
competition which began as a fund- raising event and a promotion for the awareness of hemophilia at the University offered participants a "chance to be creative," according to Rena Buchan, McDonald East hall director and member of the winning team.
The tipover event, involving the setting up and falling down of dominoes, sponsored by Student Activities and the Northwest Ohio Hemophilia Foundation, stemmed from an attempt by a man who tried to break the world's record by setting up 100,000 dominoes for the Hemophilia Foun- dation, Gregory T. DeCrane, director of Student Activities, explained.
Dr. Paul F. Haas, president of the Northwest Ohio Hemophilia Foun- dation and associate professor of economices, asked DeCrane whether Student Activities could set up a tipover competition.
HAA8 SATO THAT the purpose of the event was to make persons aware of the serious effects of hemophilia.
He explained that hemophilia is a bleeding disorder in which "the blood fails to clot, because the system doesn't produce the clotting factor." It is not infectious or contagious, but Is tran- smitted genetically by the mother.
DeCrane and three others made up rules and promoted the idea.
THE EVENT FOR hemophilia started Feb. 5 at the Student Recreation Canter with six teams and 1,000 dominoes. At the semifinals Feb. 12 three teams competed using 1,500 dominoes and during the finals Mon- day, the two.teams each set up 5,000 dominoes.
Points were earned based on creativity of the formation, fastest set up time, successful execution of the five required moves and the slowest falling- down time, DeCrane explained.
During the first round of competition a category was added for most pledges obtained by a team. If the formation did not have to be restarted, the team could collect 100 percent of its pledges. For every time it was restarted, 10 percent was deducted from the pledge, he said.
Almost $550 was pledged during the
tipover competition, DeCrane said.
ALTHOUGH SETTING UP dominoes, even such large numbers of them, sounds easy, a lot of time and patience was involved, he said.
Al Linne, hall director of Rodgers Quadrangle, said that he "didn't know it was going to get this elaborate," referring to the hours Involved and construction of extra gimmicks for the formations.
directors from the Office of Residence Life, calling themselves "The Pushovers," won the tipover com- petition, beating the "A-B Staff" team, consisting of Anderson's hall director, a resident and three resident advisors from Chapman, Anderson and Brom- field.
"The Pushovers" practiced setting up their formations on the Sunday nights before the competitions "to get us psyched up for it," Buchan said.
She explained that through several
brainstorming sessions, "The ideas (for gimmicks) came from the whole group" and Linne constructed them.
Monday night, their formation started off with a one-inch toy robot pushing the first domino off a tripod set up on the mezzanine above the ac- tivities center and traveled down a string pulley to the main floor area. Buchan said that on the other night
they used a water pistol to start but wanted to do "different things for each tipover." I*
"THE A-B STAFF" planned ana experimented with different gimmicks, too, Dave K. Yoder, Anderson resident advisor, said.
A high-pitched frequency device turned on the power of an electric typewriter. The carriage with a piece of cardboard attached to it returned and knock the first domino over.

guest column
back to basics? not at the cost of innovation In the lead story In the BG News of
February 13, Professor Mark Asman is quoted amidst comments critical of the Department of English as saying the study of roller coasters iiuminti "uncontrolled proliferation of cheap courses," which are harmful because they cause lower enrollments in "hard" courses. The course Dr. Asmand referred to is "Coaatermania," a two credit Popular Culture course offered during the first 1971 summer session. As one of three instructors of this course, I feel it necessary to correct some misconceptions about the course which Dr. Asman and other members of the faculty have expressed during the last six months.
Coastermania, first of all, was not cheap in either cost or quality. Cedar Point Amusement Park, where class sessions were conducted, paid over 10,000 dollars for resources for the course. Most of this money went for
speakers who have national reputations as experts on either American cultural history or amusement parks. Among these dozen or so experts were Russell B. Nye, distinguished professor of English at Michigan State University, Robert Cartmell, associate professor of art history at SUNY, Albany, and compiler of the exhibition on roller coasters presented by the Smithsonian Institution, and Marcello Truxti, chair of the Department of Sociology at Eastern Michigan University. As co- sponsors, the Department of Popular Culture contributed its energies and recommendations and, at the same
time, independently designed the course. Thus a department of BGSU was able to present a course with a unique gathering of nationally known academic experts, costing thousands of dollars, without the University itself having to pay a penny.
MOST OF THE 17S people who at- tended Coastermania attended It as a conference on a non-credit basis. Eight students, six of whom were not regular students at BGSU, took it as a University approved two credit course. For these two hours of credit tbey were required to read 2-4 books, attend three extra hours of special seminars beyond the scheduled conference sessions and do about 22 pages of writing assign- ments. Three members of the Popular Culture Department team taught the course. They did it free, and on top of other summer teaching duties. The final result was the University gained a small additional enrollment taught by
volunteers. Certainly, no sacrificing of "hard" courses took place, nor was there any watering down of academic standards in Coastermania itself.
The Popular Culture Department participated in the project for several reasons: 1. The subject itself is im- portant. Amusement parks have become a billion dollar American business and a major center of American leisure time. More Americans attend amusement parks than professional football, baseball, basketball and hockey combined; 2. The course was intended as an experiment in conducting a class outside of the formal classroom', 3. The course represented an experiment of private enterprise (Cedar Point) and academe working together in an area of joint interest. The results of this department experiment are currently being written up and will be presented in article form to the academic community as a whole.
WHAT IS most bothersome about Dr. Asman's comment is not so much the obvious inaccuracy of what he sup- posedly said so much as his apparent assumption that there was no need to check ahead of time whether a course on roller coasters was worthwhile or not. If the news story is correct, Dr. Asman beilieves such a course is harmful to the Unviersity simply by definition.
Professor Asman's published com- ments seem representative of a larger attitude developing on this campus and on campuses around the country that the Department of Popular Culture finds disturbing. As universities an- ticipate declining enrollments during the 1980s, a self-destructive con- servatism seems to be growing. "Back to the basics" is the most often heard cliche in recent academic planning.
After some of the educational ex- cesses of the early 1970's, a partial return to fundamental skills and the
traditional goals of general education are no doubt in order, but not at the price of continued innovation and ex- perimentation. An education at a mature university is comparable to a trip down a river. The calm of traditional courses and approaches provides necessary security; yet it is also necessary to move ahead in the more turbulent current of the new and experimental. If a university dams up the natural flow, it will find itself eventually with nothing but stagnant back water.
THE CRITICISMS of the Department of English and Coastermania by Dr. Asman typifies the frustrated attacks on the faculty and courses of depart- ments and programs in the struggle to survive in a troubled educational are. As an alternative, the Department of Popular Culture calls for collegia! understanding and cooperation.

opinion 'judgment is founded on truth...'
university needs city representation "There are 15,000 students In Bowling Green with no representation.* This statement was made four years ago by Robert Dickinson, a
University student, who was running for mayor of Bowling Green and his words still are true today. This year the citizens of Bowling Green will elect a mayor and five of the seven councllmen.The students should not sit out the race as they did in 1977. but instead should be listed on the ballot along with the other candidates.
The Wood County Board of Elections reported that the Democratic Incumbents are circulating their petitions for re-election. Petitions still are available for those who want to challenge the ward councilmen, the at-large councilmen or Mayor Alvin L. Perkins. There Is a March 22 deadline for filing the petitions.
The city's permanent residents did not take too kindly to the efforts of Dickinson and council candidate David Meermans in 1975. The returns show that Dickinson received 132 votes out of the 5,700 cast for mayor and Meermans was beat 582 to 237.
Many residents feel that University students should not run for public office because they are only nine-month residents of Bowling Green.
However, at least 1,600 students regularly attend summer school and would be in the city for the full year.
According to financial records. University employees pay more than $574,000 in city income taxes or more than one-fourth the total tax collected Granted, faculty and staff make up the bulk of the taxpayers: however. Student Employment estimated that students make up one- third of the University labor force. If the students had 1.5 percent of their income withheld for taxes, then they should have a voice In spending it just as every other group does in the city.
The potential power of the students is rising as it witnessed by the location of polling places on campus last fall to accommodate some 1,350 voters. Students now make up the majority of the registered voters In the ward 1, which encompasses the campus.
Even though the faculty cannot represent student interests, some students feel the two University professors who sit on council represent them. These two men do not live in the wards dominated by the students. Dr. Roger C. Anderson, associate professor of political science, told the News point blank four years ago, "I represent the fourth ward, not the University."

eavesdropping—the fine art of killing time WASHINGTON-You're stuck in the
airport and your plane has been delayed, and they're trying to clear the runway of snow, and there are no motel rooms available within the area, and you've been to the airline counter six times and the magazine counter four times, and you've looked at every souvenir they sell, and you've had It with the Moonies and their smelly carnations and you've run out of quarters for the pinball machines on the balcony. What do you do?
I discovered the other day one of the fun things to do is to listen in on other people's telephone calls. Most telephones at airports are located 12 inches from each other and there Is no problem pretending you're on the phone when in fact you're eavesdropping on the person next to you.
HERE ARE some of the better conversations I heard while I was killing time at National Airport during the last snowstorm.
"Hello, honey. I'm stuck in Washington and won't get home tonight. Honest to pete, the planes aren't flying...I'm not lying. What do you mean I sound happy? Why should I be happy because I can't get home tonight? I'm not with anybody...I'm by myself. Why do you always keep bringing up O'Hare Airport and the stewardess every time I get stuck? That was two years ago...I haven't seen her since. Do we have to go through this again? We were just lonely and had dinner and a few drinks together. I don't care what nosy Margie told you
Art Buchwald
we were doing. So she saw us go up in the elevator together at the O'Hare Hilton. Is that a crime? How were we supposed to get to our rooms? Margie's a well poisoner. Look, I wouldn't have called if I thought you were going to make a federal case out of it.
"I have no idea what I'm going to do now. I may have to sleep at the air- port...Yes, by myself on the floor. Unless we can figure out some kind of orgy at the Eastern Airlines shuttle gate. There is no music in the background...that's a loudspeaker announcing that all planes to Atlanta have been canceled. Maybe I'll get out tomorrow morning. Think what you want to...Just because it isn't snowing in Rochester doesn't mean it isn't snowing here. GOODBYE."
THE MAN ON my right was reading from a notebook. "Charley, I'm not going to get there for the meeting tomorrow morning. Tell Griswold the Navy has changed the specs on the GX- 1S6 and they want the AJ-30s pointing toward the stern instead of the bow. I told them it would cost an extra seven mil and they said they didn't care because it would still be cheaper now
than when the GX got off the drawing boards. Also, inform Wilson that we have to make modifications on the cycli-calibers under the anti-radar booms. I told them that would cost another 10 mil, but no one batted an eye. And slip Mac a note that Capt. Ringding, who gave us the contract, was passed over and is retiring next month and wants the job we promised htm. I know he can't read a blueprint, but he may be helpful to us when we have to break the news to the Navy about the 60 mil overrun."
I walked a few telephones down. A lady was shouting into the phone. "Paul, I won't be home. There's hamburger in the freezer and canned peas in the closet or baked beans- whlchever you want. Look, don't get mad at me. I don't care what the kids are doing. I'm tired and I had a rough
day and the people I was supposed to meet couldn't get Into town so they postponed the meeting to next week and I'm going to have to come back. Well, take them all to a Burger King If you don't want to cook. I couldn't care less if they ate or not. All you can do is nag, nag, nag. You should have thought about it before you let me accept my commission as an adviser to "The Year of the Child."'
THE LAST call I heard before I went back to the magazine stand to take another look at Playboy was being made by a man with a big grin on his face. "Honey, you're not going to believe this. The airport is closed and I'm stuck here overnight. I'll be over as soon as I can find a taxi."

As far as Mr. Agnello's reference to going to the library to a void noise in the dorm, I prefer to study in my own room. Besides, I pay a lot of money for a room here at BG, so I feel I have a right to

and challenging all housing units to become involved in its annual Charities Week, to be held February 18-24. In past years, residence units have sponsored various activities to raise money for charities during this week, which culminates in the UAO Mardi Gras festival. Funds raised during the week are turned in to Charities Board to be distributed to charities. You as a housing unit may specify which charitiy you would like your donations to be given to. A trophy will be awarded to the residence unit bringing in the most money.
Some of the past activities which have proven sucessful Include charging for lock-out keys, holding bake sales or Ice cream socials and ugliest R.A., person on the Door, or In the bouse. Contributions by the units determine the winner. Auctioning off people's time for dates, laundry, or typing papers have also proved to be fun, while raising money for a worthy cause.
We hope these Ideas will get you involved. Not only will the effort be for charity, but involvement in the ac- tivities will also help to chase away the winter blues.
Some of the organizations that were benefited by last years funds are the American Kidney Foundation, Red Cross, Project Hope, St Vincent DePaul and UNICEF.
Please try to Involve your housing unit in this worthwhile project. If your unit would like more Information about this project please contact 405 Student Services. All money must be collected by March 1. Thanks for your Interest, get involved and good luck.

'Emerald City' to feature casino, mime artist
AAardi Gras turns Union into land of Oz'
By David Drake
A trio to the fantasy land of Oi is planned for the annual Union Activities Organization (UAO) Mardi Gras celebration this week.
The winter fete runs through Saturday. While many traditional events have remained unchanged, there are some additions this year.
One is the theme, "Mardi Gras In the Land of Ox."
"What's neat is we've used a theme," said Meg Davis, UAO vice president and chairman of Mardi Gras. "In the past, we've kept the celebration pretty much along the same lines as the one In New Orleans, but since most students here don't know what it's like, we decided to change it and make it a little more exciting."
THE IDEA FOR the theme came about in a unique way, Davis said. "Randy Haberkamp, the movie chairman, called me and said he had a great theme for Mardi Gras-Mardi Gras in the Land of Oz. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but after we talked about it, it sounded like a pretty good idea."
UAO workers have decorated the Union and a house depicting Dorothy's home in Kansas was built and Is shown In the lobby. The third floor has been transformed into the Emerald City, complete with tornado.
This week's celebration has grown since its inception in 1969.
Gregg DeCrane was UAO president when the first Mardi Gras was held. "The idea was the vice president's, Mary Ayers. She thought there should be a big activity in the winter since there's Homecoming in the fall and Good Times Weekend in the spring.
"We contacted the Chamber of Commerce in New Orleans so we could get our celebration as close to theirs as possible," DeCrane said.
MARDI GRAS RAN two nights, Friday and Saturday. Saturday night was, and still Is, the biggest night of the event. The carnival was held in half of the Grand Ballroom, DeCrane said, and a dance was held in the other half. Other activities included a piano player in the Falcon's Nest, a palm reader and silent movies.
This year's activities are more ex- tensive.
At I p.m. today there will be a "Looking for the Perfect Dorothy" contest in the Side Door. The winner will receive a pass to all Mardi Gras events.
At 8:15 p.m. the 1939 version of the "Wizard of Oz" will be shown. At 10 p.m., a 1929 slapstick-comedy version will be shown.
The traditional pancake-eating contest will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday. According to Davis, this event Is popular. Eight pairs of contestants compete to eat 12 pancakes In the least amount of time.
A BUBBLE-GUM blowing contest will be held at 8:30 p.m. and the con- testant who blows the biggest bubble will win.
At 9 p.m. Tony Packo's Cake Walkin' Jazz Band will play in the Falcon's Nest "Packo's band is really great," Davis said. "They said they've been waiting for us to call. It's a lot of fun every year."
At 3:30 p.m. tomorrow a Pinball Wizard tournament will be held in the Buckeye Room.
At 8 p.m. a magic show will be held

ding that OAPSE does not intend to search individual files or "jackets."
OAPSE requested to examine files containing the number of "Ifflrifttd employees, list of promotions and employee examinations, he added.
Turko also said some employees told him that Rehmer has held what Turko called "captive audience meetings" with custodial workers telling them of OAPSE's efforts to investigate their files.
However, Rehmer said the meetings, held last week, were regular monthly sessions of custodial workers organized by David M. Love, director of grounds
and academic custodial maintenance. Rehmer said Love asked him to attend
Love said that discussing the law suit was not the purpose of the meeting and was not brought up until one employee asked about the University's position on the issue.
LOVE SAID HE invited Rehmer ' 'simply so people would get to know the personnel department better."
Results of another action taken last month by OAPSE still are unknown.
It requested an investigation Into the University personnel department by the state department of administrative services.
Fmm page one
A confidential University source said two employees from the state depar- tment did investigate the personnel department's records about two weeks ago, but results of the inquiry still are unknown.
Phil Hamilton, deputy director of administrative services, said that of- fice is meeting today with OAPSE attorneys to "see what their problem is and what they're alleging."
Hamilton said he is unsure of OAP- SE's reasons for requesting an In- vestigation. "The letter (submitted by OAPSE) was a little vague and we want to get specifics," he noted.

Student adjusts from Bettsville BettsviUe High School,
located about 30 miles southeast of Bowling Green, Is one of the smallest schools in the state, according to Michelle Dantuono. And for her, it was a big adjustment going from an 83-student high school to a large college.
Dantuono graduated last year in a class of 16, the
smallest class of her school since 1958, she said.
"My first class I walked into was 45 people, and I didn't think people were all that friendly because back home when you walk into a room, everybody knows you," Dantuono said of her first impression at the University.
"The two things people
freak out about Is my school size and our class trips," Dantuono said. Bettsville has a unique system for senior class trips. Saving for the trip begins in the eighth grade and the class adviser helps raise money through events including flea markets.
DANTUONO'S SENIOR TRIP featured a Caribbean
cruise to Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. She said this year's senior class is going to England.

Eleven parades canceled, hotel business down
Police strike dampens Mardi Gras celebration A police strike that has dulled the
traditional midwinter celebration of carnival and Mardi Gras was felt In hotels yesterday with some reporting business down 25 percent.
And in the midst of the threat to the $60 million festival in tourist-oriented New Orleans a police union official was quoted as threatening to "wreck the banter."
city" if necessary to win the strike. But Vincent Bruno, president of the
Police Association of Louisiana, later said that he was kidding. A spokesman issued a statement saying Bruno believed that he was talking off the record to reporters for the States-Item and the remark was "made during light
CARNIVAL PARADES -elaborate, expensive extravaganzas staged by private social "krewes," or crews-were beginning to shift to the suburbs, out of the strike zone.
Mayor Ernest Mortal announced the cancellation of yet another parade- Wednesday night's Krewe of Babylon procession. It was the 11th parade
Bill may boost Cleveland finances Cleveland needs legislation that deals
with municipal fiscal crisis regardless of what voters decide in next Tuesday's referendum to hike taxes and to sell a city-owned light plant, Representative Harry J. Lehman said yesterday.
But the Cleveland Democrat told a House committee the defaulted city really should have all three-the bill, the tax Increase and the plant sale-to move away from "death's doorstep."
"What should become clear to this committee...is that even if both issues pass, House Bill 132 is needed..by the city of Cleveland to get its accounting system In shape, to provide operating efficiencies and most importantly, to provide the type of credibility that is
essential in order to restore the ability of the city to get short-term loans and eventually return to the bond markets...," Lehman said.
LEHMAN, WHO HAD worked on his own bill, is leading the bi-partisan sponsorship of the measure, which was proposed by Gov. James A. Rhodes. The legislator was lead-off witness in hearings of the House Ways and Means Committee.
The Lehman measure calls for the establishment of a seven-member commission of state and local gover- nment officials and private experts to oversee the financial activities of any municipality such as Cleveland that gets into a fiscal emergency.
Cleveland Mayor Dennis Kudnich strongly opposed the measure, bran- ding it a takeover by state govern- ment.
BUT LEHMAN and Robert F. How art h Jr., Rhodes' executive assistant, told the crmmittee that the bill Is neither a takeover nor a bailout.
"The governor does not want to run the city of Cleveland," Howarth said "The governor wants to help the city to its feet so the city can help itself in the future."
William Carmel, a municipal bond expert for McDonald & Co. of Cleveland, said his firm decided a year ago to discontinue selling Cleveland bonds and will continue to do so.
casualty of the strike zone. A federal mediator kept negotiations
going in the four-day-old strike of some 1,100 policemen, while the city was patrolled by an 800-man substitute force of state police and National Guard- smen.
TWO KEY ISSUES In the strike were Teamsters Local 253's demands that the contract cover ranking officers and that unresolved issues be submitted to compulsory binding arbitration.
City officials contend that putting police sergeants, lieutenants, captains and other ranking officers in the union bargaining unit would give the Teamsters control of the department.
In the courts, a state district Judge opened hearings on a city request for an injunction against the strike as an illegal action.
AN ORDER commanding policemen to return to work pending the outcome of a court hearing was issued last Friday but the striking police Ignored It.
Sentries maintained tight security at city buildings. Everyone entering City Hall had to pass through metal detection devices. The City Council chamber was searched following telephoned bomb threats.
Bill Langkopp, executive vice president of the Greater New Orleans
Hotel-Motel Association, said that • spot survey on carnival business showed as much as "a 25 percent drop- off due to people avoiding the city because of the strike."
"IT'S EASY to say It cost a couple of million," he said. "I know a couple of hotels lost literally hundreds of rooms because of it. Multiply that by $40 a day and you're up to thousands and If somebody gets a room, he goes out and spends money on food and things In the French Quarter."
However, he said that there have been no cancellations for Mardi Gras itself, the climactic, booty blast that conies up Feb. 27.
Meany denies retirement plans, supports anti-inflation guidelines
AFL-CIO President George Meany brushed aside suggestions that he retire and announced yesterday that he is mobilizing federation members to blow the whistle on companies that exceed President Carter's anti-inflation price guidelines.
Meany also vowed to continue to criticize Carter's policies when organized labor disagrees with them. He denied that his attacks signify a break with the president and said that he and Carter had a pleasant con- versation Monday.
"I think he (Carter) makes some mistakes and, frankly, I will continue to comment on those mistakes," Meany said, adding, "The president doesn't seem to be upset about it."
MEANY SAID THAT he promised to help monitor violations of the price guidelines. Meany said that Cartercalled the labor leader to ask for the federation's help, and that Carter thought the AFL-CIO's plan to create a national price watchdog network was "very good"
Meany spoke to reporters after the AFLGIO leadership completed another session of its annual week-long winter meeting.
He said that continued sharp rises In the price of food, housing and other necessities prove that Carter's voluntary program of wage-price guidelines is not working.
MEANY SAID THAT he hoped price monitoring reports submitted by AFL- CIO's 13.5 million members would convince the administration that the program should be replaced by man- datory wage-price controls.
The AFL-CIO contends that under a voluntary program, businesses "will" hold down wage increases but not price increases. As a result, the federation predicts inflation this year will exceed the 9 percent rate set last year.
Carter wants wage and fringe benefit increases held to 7 percent a year and has asked businesses to hold price boosts under increases of the last two years.
EARLIER YESTERDAY, an AFL- CIO vice president and long-time
Meany backer said that Meany should tone down his criticism of Carter.
Sol Cnaikin, president of the Inter- national Ladles' Garment Workers Union, also said that Meany might step down as organized labor's chief spokesman if he was given a new Job and title, such as chairman of the board.
But Meany dashed that idea em- phatically.
"THEY HAVE a chairman of the board," he said. Jabbing a thumb at his chest. "Here he is."
Asked if he planned to retire at the end of 1979, Meany said "I'm thinking about It all the time, I've been thinking about it for a number of years and I'll keep thinking about it for a number of years."
Meany, who was instrumental in forging the merger of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial organization!! in 1955, has served as the federation's only president. His current two-year term expires this fall.

Protestants and Catholics: new kind of integration Legislation to allow
Ulster's Protestant and Catholic schools to integrate was pushed through more than six months ago—but little has changed In this province where religious bigotry is at the root of bloody sectarian feuding.
Bob Burnett, spokesman for the Northern Ireland Education Department, reported that none of Ulster's
1,384 junior and high schools yet have moved to Integrate since the new Education Act was passed last June In the British Parliament.
Liberals on both sides of Northern Ireland's religious barrier maintain the segregation of schools has been a major factor in perpetuating the sectarian myths that have kept the province divided.
BUT FIERCE OP- POSITION continues from extremists and churches, especially the Roman Catholic hierarchy.
The British government, apparently reluctant to do anything to heat up sectarian tempers in the volatile province, Is staying officially neutral in the Integration campaign. However, some officials say they discreetly are encouraging schools to integrate.
Official statistics show that 98 percent of Protestant children and 97 percent of Catholic youngsters attend
segregated schools.
ULSTER'S SCHOOL system is unique in Britain. Schools were segregated when the Protestant- dominated province was partitioned from the in- dependent Irish Republic in 1922.
There are no legally designated Protestant or Catholic schools. But vir- tually all the state-run schools In the province are controlled by governing bodies dominated by Protestant churchmen while the state-aided Catholic

schools are run by priests or church nominees.
The legislation was the brainchild of AU Children Together, a pressure group of Protestant and Catholic parents who believe In- tegrated education is crucial for Ulster's future.
rr WAS INTRODUCED in Parliament by Lord Dunleath, an Ulster peer and member of the province's non-sectarian Alliance Party.
The British govenment, fearful of stirring up a hornet's nest in the turbulent province and taking on the Catholic church, did little to help the bill through parliament.
The act does not make religiously mixed schools
compulsory, but enables integration to take place In schools where a majority of parents and school gover- nors favor it.
THE KEY TO the ln- tegrationists' strategy is gaining control of school management committees from church nominees who have stonewalled efforts to Integrate In the past.
Church nominees control between 55 percent and 60 percent of the seats on these committees.
The integrationists admit that they face a long cam- paign in overcoming the centuries of sectarian hostility. But, said Cecilia Linehan, a founder of All Children Together: "The new act Is a start"
LINEHAN, A CATHOLIC and mother of three children, said she believes that integrated schools are Inevitable, despite the bitter opposition of Catholic clergymen to relinquishing control of church schools.
One of the most outspoken Catholic critcs, Canon Padraig Murphy of Belfast, commented, "Integrated schooling would worsen the situation here. The Protestant religion has suffered as a result of handing over the respon- sibility of religious teaching to the state. We're being Invited to make the same mistake. But what we need in Northern Ireland Is not less religion, but more.''

Catholic educator in Belfast, declared hotly: "The real issues here are housing and Jobs, not schools. There's absolutely no evidence to support the claim that segregated education is the cause of the trouble In Northern Ireland"
TEACHERS UNIONS, politicians and some Protestant churches ex- pressed degrees of sympathy for integration, but this often has been little more than Up service to the idea of change.
"There's massive support among both communities In Northern Ireland for In- tegrated education," claimed Tony Spencer, an executive of All Children Together and a Catholic.
However, a study con- ducted a year ago by the New University of Ulster at Coleraine was less positive. It concluded after checking 260 schools that the time was not yet ripe for full integration.
INDEED, MANY In the Catholic and Protestant ghettoes, the heartlands of sectarian extremism, are opposed strongly to allowing their children to mix.

If apirtt, confidence and pride are any Indicators of future results. Bowling Green's women swimmers are destined to capture their sixth straight state championship this weekend at Cooper pool.
The "swimmin' women" finished their regular season with an impressive M record, losing only to rival Ohio State in the second meet of the year.
But the general consenses that the gals are burning for a chance at the Buckeyes when the rematch com- mences thursday.
BG, Ohio State, Miami and Wright State figure to be the top teams in this year's competition.
'THIS YEAR it (championship) won't Just come to us," sophomore Cathy Bujorian explained. "Since Ohio State beat us in the dual meet, we've bad a big motivation for the states. We're out to beat their butts."
"We know it's going to be close this year," sophomore Linda Zadel said. "We know Ohio State thinks they can beat us. We just want to give it our best shot and prove that they're wrong."
Bowling Green dominated most of their competition this year. They beat Central Michigan by 63 points. Ball State by 91, Western Michigan by 75, Eastern Michigan by 27, Wright State by 23 and Kent State by 75.
Ohio State finished second to the Falcons in the state meet last year and In the BG Relays at the beginning of this year.
"WE KNOW our work is cut out for us," senior Elizabeth "Parkie" Thompson said. "It's almost a tradition for us to win and we (the seniors) won't let it end in our year."
BG's powerhouse Is comprised of four seniors, five juniors, nine sophomores and 14 freshmen. Sixteen of the swimmers are returning from last year's team.
The Falcons may have an added advantage in the tournament this year since the action will be held in BG's Cooper pool.
"We know our pool well," Zadel said, "and that helps on the turns. Plus well have lot more of our people in the stands."
"The pool is still a novelty Item to us," Thompson said. "A lot of the teams haven't seen it yet and it might psych them out It's our home and we're so proud of it, and the hometown crowd is just phenomenal."
LUCE MOST sports, swimming championships are often determined by intangibles-pride, determination and team spirit. According to BG's swimmers, the Falcons have all the necessary ingredients.
"Our team is so close," Buiorian explained. "Everybody draws from each other. The closeness, spirit and unity on this team is something else. I know it does a lot for me. When I'm swimming I know everyone else is cheering and wanting me to do my best."
"Compared to the other teams, we have a lot more spirit. And the other schools would agree; it's not just me saying it for out team," Zadel added.
Zadel will be the busiest Falcon over the weekend, competing in the 200-yard individual medley, 200-yard backstroke, 400-yard individual medley, 800-yard freestyle relay and the 1,650-yard freestyle. Bujorian will swim the freestyle events and the medley, and Thompson will be seeking her fourth straight qualifying time in the backstroke.
To the swimmers, the state meets are the pinnacle of the season. Good per- formances would qualify individuals for national competition as well as earn the team a trophy.
"I'VE PUT my whole heart into this season," Bujorian said. "For me, the states mean everything. I just want to do my best and I want everyone else to do their best"

Falcons rally to dump Notre Dame, CSU ByPatHyland
Assistant Sports Editor
Bowling Green's men swimmers swept to two victories last night at Cooper pool, finishing their regular season with a 6-5 record.
The Falcons topped Notre Dame, 79- 34, and Cleveland State, 70-43.
Six Falcon swimmers took first place, including the 400-yard medley relay team of Jeff Wolf, Ben Gohlke, Rick Weissbrod and Craig Casten. BG edged the Irish by .60 of a second for the
medley title. Wolf swam a 22.37 50-yard freestyle to
beat Bill Taylor of Cleveland State. In the 200-yard fly, BG's Craig Casten
cracked the two minute mark by .36 of a second to win the event.
BG's Brian Koenig and Gregg Reinmann finished one-two in the 200- yard individual medley. Koenig finished in 2:03.15 and Reinmann swam a 2:06.06.
The Falcons got another one-two finish in the 200-yard breaststroke. Reinmann captured first place with a
time of 2:19.15, and Weissbrod was clocked at 2:19.64.
Bowling Green's 400-yard freestyle relay team of Tim Sharp, Dave Koenig, Brian Koenig and Jeff France topped Notre Dame by about one second for their second relay win of the night. A second BG team.comprised of Rein- mann, Chris Liedel, Gohlke and Casten, finished third in the six team race with a time of 3:26.45.
Bowling Green's Reagan Minser, who had been diving exceptionally well in recent competition, was edged in both
the one meter and three meter diving events by Cleveland State's ace John Dalman. Dalman recorded 271.70 points in the three meter event to top Minser by 12.8 points. In the one meter event, Minser scored 241.55 to Dalman's 251.90.
Bowling Green's overall depth was a key factor in the wins, as BG managed eight second place finishes and two thirds.
The Falcons begin Mid-American Conference (MAC) tournaments Thursday, March 1 at Ball State.
Falcons hope fo take out frustrations on WMU By Dan Firestone
Assistant Sports Editor
After two straight frustrating Mid- American Conference (MAC) losses, Bowling Green's basketball team should welcome the opportunity to play last-place Western Michigan today at 7:30p.m. in Kalamazoo, Mich.
The Falcons, 14-9, M in the MAC, have dropped two close MAC games, 73- 70 to Ball State and 75-74 to Miami, and could be a little, flat after their latest defeat by the rival Redskins.
But Western Michigan Coach Dick Shilts said he doesn't think that will happen. "If anything I think It will
motivate them to play a little better. Bowling Green's an excellent shooting team.
"THEY'RE THE top field goal shooting team in the conference, They're doing some things extremely well and that's why they have a fine record. It would-even be a greater record had they won a few more of their close games," he said..
Western Michigan lost to Central Michigan Saturday, 94-86, marking the third time in four games the Broncos have yielded 90 points or more.
"That was our most consistent of- fensive effort in quite a while and we
were in the game until committing three straight turnovers after we'd closed the margin to one point late in the second half," Shilts said.
"We just make too many turnovers. We play a fast style type of baU and I guess you have to expect to give up a lot of points," he added.
JUNIOR GUARD Kenny Cun- ningham, from Toledo Rogers High School, paces the Bronco scoring with a 19.3 scoring average, which is fourth in the conference.
But in the game earlier this season with BG, it was forward Rod Curry that led the Bronco scoring with 19 points as
OSU manhandles BG, 3-1 Ohio State, with a hot goaltender,
the home ice and all mathematical odds in their favor, defeated Bowling Green 3-1, at Columbus' Ice Rink last night.
The Buckeyes who had lost 11 straight games to BG until last night, came up with the last three scores of the game for the win.
Brian MacLelllan rebounded a shot by John Markell for a BG goal with just less than a minute left in the second period. But that was the only thing that got by OSU goaUe Steve Jones.
Only 34 seconds later, the
Buckeyes matched it with a score by Mark Freeman on the third rebound on Falcon goaltender WaUy Charko.
That was the only scoring of the tightly-fought first two periods.
BUT IN THE THIRD period the Bucks provided all the offense. Greg Kostenko took advantage when Charko was jostled by Freeman and slipped in what proved to be the winning goal.
Steve Amaruso scored the final goal of the game with a little more than four minutes left when he came in alone on Charko and put the puck by him.
Although BG has won the three previous meetings with OSU, Steve Jones has been a consistent bother to the Falcons. Last night was more of the same as he frustrated chance after chance for BG scores. He had 42 saves.
Charko had 33 saves for the Falcons, now 31-5-2 and 19-2-1 in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association ICCHAI.
THE GAME WAS the hard-hitting affair expected from the Buckeyes in the past. BG's Paul Titantic and OSU's Rod McNalr were both ejected for fighting
the Falcons won 67-56. Western Michigan, 6-20, M0 in the
MAC, ranks last in the conference in team defense giving their opponents an average of 83 points a game.
CAGE NOTES: Bowling Green
Hockey clubbers win Pitt tourney By John Dtunford
After beating the University of Pit- tsburgh 6-2 Sunday to win the Pitt- sburgh Invitational Tournament, BG dub hock-y coach Shawn Walsh said, "I almost wish it would have been our last game. It would have been a great way to end the season."
Who could blame Walsh for his withes? His Falcon clubbers had just dominated a prestigious tournament field of Penn State, Duquesne, and Pittsburgh to give them 19 victories in their last 21 games and a season's ledger of 22-4
Freshman center Don McLaughlin •arned tournament most valuable player honors as he scored four goals in
the clubbers' 17-4) destruction of Penn State on Saturday and collected a bat trick In the clinching victory over Pittsburgh. His tournament totals showed seven goals and three assists.
"There was no doubt he was the best player on the Ice," Walsh said. "He really deserved it (the mvp)."
WALSH ALSO praised winger Doug Olson and def enseman Scott Lovaas for their defensive work.
"Olson is probably the best checker on the team," Walsh said. "Lovaas held our defense together. He helped flU a lot of holes because of injuries."
Olson and Lovaas were not bad of- fensively either. Olson had three goals and four assists for the tournament
whUe Lovaas had two goals. Winger Dave Phiel and center Bob
Ross scored three goals in the tour- nament also. Ross just joined the team this quarter.
SUCCESS HAS been the story for hte Falcon clubbers this season, despite the fact that they are an independent that gets little pubUcity. Walsh became appreciative of the BG hockey program after the tournament victory over the weekend.
"I realized personally what a great program we have," Walsh said. "As an independent, it's tough. There's no pubUcity, no championship and no trophies, but everybody left the rink in Pittsburgh realizing what a great program BG has."

Weinert gets reprimand Mid-American Conference
commissioner Fred Jacoby has verbally reprimanded BG basket- ball Coach John Weinert for Weinert's comments on the of- ficiating of the BG-Ball State game Feb. 10, which the Falcons lost, 73- 70.
Weinert called referee Art Willard "totally incompetent and totally dishonest'' after the game.
"I deserved the verbal reprimand," Weinert said yester- day. "I said what I felt after the game, and I would do it again if It happened again.
"I think he (Jacoby) did the right thing. If it was anything more, though, like a one-game suspension or something, I would have argued it," Weinert said. -ROB BOUKISSEN. nsnonesi arier tne game. ovuiuoonn.
Women cogers red hot, face Saginaw tonight
The Bowling Green women's basketball season could continue for some time yet and Coach Kathy Bole would not mind it a bit.
After a slow start the Falcons have won five of their last seven games. Their latest win came Friday In a 83-53 conquest of CedarvUle College.
"I ANTICIPATED this," Bole said, referring to the winning streak. "With so many new people and then with them having to get adjusted to me, I knew it would take a while.
"The credit goes to them (the players) though," she said. "When we were 1-10 they had to think, 'Why keep coming?' I wish we had another shot at some of the teams we played."
Against CedarvUle, 9-9, the Facons broke fast and led 39-24 at the half. In the game, BG shot 49 percent with Michelle Stevens hitting 24 pointsand Charissa Urbano 18. The 83pointsrepresent the most a BG team has scored since 1974, when the Falcons hit 86 points against Wright State.
BG DOMINATED the boards 56-41 and the Falcons had three double-figure rebounders. Sue Cowman puUed down 15 boards while Urbano had 13and Stevens 11. *
"We executed well at both ends of the floor," Bole said. "We were able to shut them off effectively particularly inside."
The Falcons travel to Saginaw Valley State College to battle the Cardinals today at 5 p.m. BG win be seeking to avenge a 7141 setback to the Cardinals earlier this year.
"WE ARE looking forward to this game," she said. "And we are hoping to come away with a win. We fed as long as we do the things we are capable of, then that will be the key to success."
The Falcons are 6-12.
