For an additional fee, the service will even provide a campus room students can show as their own when their parents come to town for a visit. Ear-Eating Tiger Defended (ZNS) A Louisiana State University Newspaper recently published a satire section that includes a fictional story about how the school's mascot, a large Bengal tiger, escaped from his cage and mauled several cheerleaders. The Daily Reveille promptly received two letters about the item from irate readers who didn't realize that the story was intended as satire. What's interesting, however, is that both letter-writers defended the tiger. The writers both stated that the cheerleaders had mistreated the tiger at games by shaking its cage to make it roar -- and added that the mauled students got what they deserved. One writer labeled a cheerleader as "spoiled" after she had been quoted in the paper as saying that the tiger had chewed off one of her ears, and lamented the fact she'd no longer be able to wear earrings. Tokyo Rose Begs Ford's Pardon (ZNS A sign of the changing times is the report that now even Tokyo Rose may seek a Presidential pardon from President Gerald Ford. Rose, an American Citizen whose real name is Ira Toguri D'Aquino, became famous as one of World War II S best known Japanese supporters. She was later convicted of treason and spent s/x-and-a- half years in prison for her radio broadcasts of Japanese propaganda to Allied troops. Rose, who owns a Chicago gift shop, belieyes that since the U.S. has forgiven Japan and is now a close ally with that country, President Ford might grant her a pardon too. Bad Guys' Letters Better (ZNS) A sign of the times we live in is the fact that evil and crime apparently outsell statesmanship. The Charles Hamilton galleries of New York next week will be auctioning off letters and autographs written by famous people -- and the hottest items of all are expected to be the documents signed by persons now in jail. Perhaps the biggest item in the catalog is one described as "the first letter of Patty Hearst to appear at a public auction." The Patty letter is being auctioned for a minimum of $1000 -- and is expected to draw five to 10 times the price of other letters signed by such United States presidents as Dwight Eisenhower, Herbert Hoover, and Rutherford B. Hayes. Also expected to be sold for more than the presidential letters are notes written by Charles Manson and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme. Manson's letters are described as incomprehensible but fascinating. Consumerism "Morally Wrong?" (ZNS) The United States, which has only six percent of the world's population, consumes more than 40 percent of the earth's raw materials and energy. Now, according to a recent Harris Poll, a majority of Americans believes that this gap between population and consumption is "morally wrong." A Harris Survey of 1497 adults found that 61 percent believed that America's overconsumption of world resources was "morally wrong", while 23 percent did not. In addition, more than one half of those polled worried that America's excessive use of energy and raw materials would "turn the rest of the world against us." Pentagon at Wounded Knee (ZNS) Newly released documents reveal that the U.S. government employed a secret Pentagon plan known as "Garden Plot" to deal with the Wounded Knee uprising in 1973. According to the documents, a Pentagon unit known as the "Directorate of Military Support" quietly assumed command of the Wounded Knee operation shortly after Indian protesters seized the South Dakota hamlet two-and-a-half years ag0. According to the Garden Plot papers, two U.S. army colonels dressed in civilian clothing to hide their military identities were dispatched to South Dakota to take charge of F.B.I. and National Guard forces in the area. Garden Plot was a secret contingency plan developed by the defense department in the late 1960's to deal with civil disturbances inside the United States. The Washington Star News reports that military officials at Wounded Knee called in 15 armored personnel carriers, 100,000 %
