Cops Nab Enema Bandit (ZNS) A 30-year-old man suspected of being t he notorious "enema bandit" pleaded guilty this week to six counts of armed robbery. Court records show that Michael Kenyon of Urbana, Illinois, administered enemas to women victims in three of the six robberies he was charged with. From 1965 to last May, police had received at least 10 reports of a mysterious ski-masked man forcibly administering enemas to female victims before robbing them at gunpoint. The last of the enema attacks, which usually involved university coeds, took place last May, shortly before Kenyon was arrested for robbery. Police in Urbana say they believe Kenyon The board also found that even among the college trained, there is a considerable economic gap between men and women. Male college graduates earned an average of $17,200 last year, while women college graduates earned $10,400 on the average. Women college graduates, the board found, earned less on the average than men who didn't even finish high school. And Now ... Super Pot (ZNS) Researchers at the University of Mississippi have been receiving marijuana samples from all over the United States in an effort to determine if pot in the U.S. is getting stronger. Doctor Coy Waller has launched the study at the request of the U.S. government after finding indications that today's dope is more potent than ever. Doctor Waller told Congress recently that, just a few years ago, potent marijuana in the U.S. never contained more than 1.5 to 2 percent of T.H.C., the active ingredient in pot. The doctor warned that today, however, some weed being sold on the streets is 6 percent T.H.C. The Mississippi crash study was launched in an effort to find out where the potent weed is coming from and what can be done to stop it.

No Late Drinking Either (ZNS) A Baptist church in Tallahassee, Florida, launched a campaign against the evils of rock music last week by tossing $2200 worth of Elton John, Rolling Stones, Beatles and other records into a giant bonfire. The Reverend Charles Boykin of the Lakewood Baptist Church told the gathering around the roaring blaze that rock music is sinful because it "appeals to the flesh", mainly through its sensual beat. The reverend added that he had seen statistics which showed (quote) "of 1000 girls who became pregnant out of wedlock, 984 committed fornication while rock music was being played." Blah Blah (ZNS) For whatever it's worth, a new survey has found that Americ~'ns talk nearly twice as much as the Japanese. The joint-survey, conducted both in Hawaii and Japan, found that the typical American spends an average of six hours and 43 minutes per day gabbing or gossiping with someone else. In comparison, the average Japanese citizen in the survey yakked away for only three hours and 31 minutes a day. No ERA in Pay (ZNS) A private research group in New York has found that despite the women's liberation movement, women on the average earned $5000 less last year than male workers did. The Conference Board of New York, a group of economic researchers, reports that women who work full time now average only $6800 a year, 43 percent below the $11,800 salary of men holding full time jobs. Polar Bears Fake Pregnancies (ZNS) Would bears actually fake a pregnancy? Eight polar bears at the Detroit Zoo give every indication that they're pregnant, but zoo keepers are not so sure. Curator William Austin says he suspects that all eight bears are pretending they're pregnant so they can stay all winter in the maternity ward, instead of hibernating out in the cold. Austin explains that a bear cub weighs one pound at birth, so it is almost impossible to tell whether the 700 pound females are really pregnant. The zookeeper adds, however, that th e private rooms and extras make the maternity dens "pretty attractive;" he suspects that all eight bears are just freeloading to "get away from it all." CIA's "Health Alteration Commission" (ZNS) The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reports that one word which was completely absent from the C.I.A,'s glossary of dirty tricks was the word '.'assassination." According to a 1961 C.I.A. notebook, words such as "terminating" or "elim- inating" were used instead. Other acceptable terms, according to agency documents, were "incapacitating" or conducting an "executive action" against various "targets." A committee set up inside the C.I.A. to oversee possible assassination plots was known as "The Health Alteration Committee," According to the Senate report, that committee once ordered that an Iraqi colonel be permanently "incapacitated." Before the order was caried out, the "Health Alteration Committee" received a report back from a field agent that the Iraqi was already "incapacitated", that he had (quote) "suffered a terminal illness before a firing squad in Baghdad."
