A Cloak of Many Colors " (ZNS) The American Civil Liberties Union is charging that the F.B.I. secretly funded and directed a para-military right-wing organization in San Diego and instructed the group to assassinate at least two radical political activists. The .~.C.L.U., in a 5000 word statement turned over to the Senate Select Commit- tee on Intelligence, identifies the para- military group as the "Secret Army Organization." The Secret Army Organization (S.A.O.) was a group similar to The Minutemen which carried out bombings and terrorist activities in the San Diego area in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The A.C.L.U.'s memo quotes former members of the group as saying that the S.A.O. received tunding and instructions from F.B.I. agents. The memo identifies one alleged F.B.I. informer, John Rasberry, as admitting that the Bureau instructed him to assassinate a radical San Diego professor, Peter Bohmer. Bohmer's home was shot up in early 1972, and a friend of his was wounded. It was later disclosed at the trial of the assailant that F.B.I. agent Steven Christensen hid the automatic weapon used in the attack for six months in his own home while local police hunted for it. The A.C.L.U. alleges that the F.B.I. also unsuccessfully instructed S.A.O. members to assassinate Chicano activist Linco Bueno. The F.B.I. has responded to the charges, saying it had "nothing to do" with the S.A.O. Trained Seals Next (ZNS) The "Patty dogs" are a pair of German Shepherds that have been specially trained by The Bureau to react only to Patty Hearst's scent. The dogs, which were trained with Patty's belong- ings, are rushed to the scene of any suspected Tania sighting. Nader Warns Of Cancer Additive (ZNS) Ralph Nader's Health Reserch Group is warning that Sanka and Brim--two of America's most popular devafleinated coffees may contain a cancer-causing chemical. According to the Nader group, newly- completed studies by the National Cancer Institute have found that the chemical '"r.C.E." causes liver cancer. T.C.E., the Nader group says, also happens to be the chemical used by General Foods to remove the caffeine from Sanka and Brim. The Food and Drug Administration currently allows small amounts of T.C.E. to remain in the decaffeinated coffees. General Foods admits T.C.E. is present in the two coffees, but insists consumers would have to drink 50 millions cups a day to be adversely affected. Return to Sender (ZNS) Remember the Postal Service's warning a few months ago that all unstamped mail would be "returned senders? Well, the Postal Service is now reported to be on the verge of reversing that decision. It turns out that hundreds-of thousands of Americans have been sending mail free simply by addresing letters to themselves. By putting the person they really want the letter sent to in the return address space, and then leaving the stamp off, people found they could have all their mail delivered free. Under the old system, which may now by reinstated, unstamped letters were deliv- ered as addressed, but with the postage due. Dope Bill Faces Veto (ZNS) The California assembly has approved a liberalized marijuana bill which creates a $100 traific-ticket-like fine tor possessing an ounce or less of marijuana. Although Gov. Jerry Brown has not publicly voiced his support for the liberalized measure, he is expected to sign it. The bill will then become law throughout California next January 1st. The national organization for the reform of marijuana laws is now urging California residents to write to the governor in support of the bill after learning that several opponents of the measure -- including Los Angeles police chief Ed Davis -- are calling on the governor to veto it. Air Ad Fad Near (ZNS) "Good morning, ladies and gentlemen...this is your Captain speak- ing...we'll be flying at 30,000 feet and I'll be giving you the weather report after this word from our sponsor." If you think the idea of pilot's doing in-flight commericials is a thing of the future, T.W.A. may have a surprise for you. The airline has already pioneered what may be the advertising coup of the decade by introducing in-flight commercials on its cross country flights. T.W.A. admits, however, that the company has run into some consumer resistance to it's new revenue-increasing gimmick. Apparently some veteran airline passengers who pay $2.50 to rent earphones object to having commercials interrupt their selections of music. In Goes the Good Air... (ZNS) A Navy surgeon in Long Beach has come up with an apparent "miracle drug" that seems to enlarge breasts, improve your I.Q. and memory, cure baldness and reverse senility. Captain George Hart of the U.S. Naval Hospital in Long Beach says that the name of the wonder cure is "oxygen" -- plain, ordinary oxygen. Hart has been specializing in treating severly-burned patients with "hyperbaric oxygenation therapy." The therapy in- volves placing patients in a pressurized container of oxygen, similar to the treatment applied to a diver with the bends. The doctor has found, however, that all sorts of cosmetic side effects commonly occur -- including a rapidly improved mind and memory, new hair growth and even an end to impotency. Not His Fault (ZNS) A New York conceptual artist has announced plans to construct" a 65,000-ton block of concrete -- about an acre in size -- directly on top of California's San Andreas earthquake fault. The artist, Terry Fugate-Wilcox, esti- mates that his project, if approved, will cost him around $1 million. Fugate-Wilcox has already formed his own corporation to build the giant block, a firm called the Crack in the World Company. he hopes soon to sell 200 shares of stock in the corporation--each share at $5,000--to raise the million dollars he will need. The plan calls for a giant block of concrete -- 20 feet high, 188 feet wide and 232 feet long -- to be poured on the California countryside directly atop the fault. Fugate-Wilson insists that not only will the artwork outlast even the _pyramids, but it will be an on-going piece of art. He explains that the block will split, and opposite sides will slowly be separated by the fault at the rate of 2 inches per year. He says that generations thousands of years in the future will be able to view two hunks of the block separated by noticeable dis- tances and will be able to appreciate what time and nature have done. continued from page 19 Chandler, Hart Sprager, dleston, and little or me few --would probably have been to try out before you the Big Smoke for Rosemary I lis and Graham Pollock.
