Another body found in Atlanta
ATLANTA (UPI) - The body of
another unidentified black youngster
was found in Atlanta yesterday and
authorities tried to determine if the
death was related to the slayings of 10
other black children. One police of

Fourteen black children have
disappeared from the streets of south
Atlanta in the past 15 months and 10

GREENSBORO, N.C. (UPI) - The
Communist Workers Party held a
memorial service yesterday for five
members who were killed a year ago
today in a gunfight with Ku Klux
Klansmen and Nazis.
The ceremony at Maple Wood
Cemetery, where four of the five are
buried, came a day before the first
anniversary of the shootings on Nov.
3, 1979, during a CWP-sponsored
“Death to the Klan” rally.

shootout is nearing a conclusion. A

Hostages: 'the' election concern
Candidates downplay issue; others point to its importance ~
WASHINGTON (AP) President Carter said last
night the calendar would not affect the way he handles
the hostage crisis, and Ronald Reagan sought crucial
votes in the closing hours of a tense presidential cam
paign that suddenly seemed dependent on terms set by
the Iranian Parliament.
Reagan, the Republican presidential nominee, said
the Iranian hostage situation was too delicate for him
to discuss. His running mate, George Bush, said it
would not affect the outcome of tomorrow’s election.
Campaigning in Marietta, Ohio, Reagan said, “This
is not the time or the place for me to be addressing such
a sensitive matter.
“Obviously, all of us want this tragic situation
resolved. That’s my deepest hope, and I know it’s
Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie said Carter did
not regard the possible break of the year-old hostage
stalemate as a political resource.
Nonetheless, it became the dominant concern of
campaigners for both sides, almost on the eve of an
election the public opinion pollsters said was too close
Reagan appeared to hold the advantage in potential
electoral votes, and his lieutenants had been
forecasting victory. But one of them said in advance
that a break in the hostage situation could change the

Carter met with his advisers to discuss possible ac
ceptance of Iranian demands for two hours yesterday
morning and conferred with them again in the after
noon before the president addressed the nation on
The Iranian demands were for: a pledge that the
United States will not interfere in Iranian affairs,
release of $8 billion in Iranian assets frozen on Carter’s
orders, withdrawal of U.S. legal claims against Iran,
and return of the wealth of the late Shah Mohammad
Muskie said the administration could not judge
whether those terms were acceptable since they had
not been spelled out in detail. Even if they are ac
cepted, he said, the hostage release “is obviously going
to be time-consuming” and probably could not come by
The secretary of state, appearing on ABC’s “Issues
and Answers” program, did not rule out the release of
spare military parts, bought by Iran but embargoed
because of the hostage seizure, as part of an agreement
for the release.
Nor did he flatly reject a phased release, although he
said the U.S. position remains that all the hostages
should be released at once.
Bush, former President Gerald R. Ford and former.
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger all criticized the
idea of release in stages, and of sending spare military
parts to Iran, now at war with Iraq,
While his Republican allies took that line, Reagan
said he would not discuss the situation.
Vice President Walter F. Mondale picked up Carter’s
campaign schedule, which was to have taken the presi

Mondale met with Carter and other top adminislra
tion officials, then flew to Chicago and said the presi
dent had canceled his campaigning to “manage.,ojir
side” in hostage deliberations.
“I am sure that you would agree with him that these
developments require that he, especially, as president
of the United States, be in the White House represen
ting all of us today,” Mondale said. “. . . You should
know that as he proceeds he will do nothing that cofn
promises the honor of our country .. . the national
security of our country, and he will leave no option
unexplored which could ■ lead to the safe and early
return of our fellow Americans.”
Bush, on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” said
the conditions set yesterday appear to “give us the
grounds, for reasonable negotiations” to end _tjie
The vice presidential nominee said he would be sur
prised if Carter agreed to a phased release. “I think
they all ought to come home . . . and then we fulfill
these terms,” Bush said. “I think they all ought to.be
delivered home before we do anything to go forward
with our end of the bargain.”
. Ford, on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, said, the
shipment of O.S. military supplies to Iran would
“would put us in the quagmire of the Middle East and it
would be worse than the experiences we.had in Viet
nam.” Kissinger said it would be a signal to the world
that the United States can be held for ransom, and
might encourage terrorism.

calls photo a joke,
The controversy over the photo began
Homecoming weekend when Coleman
displayed it in the window of the Penn
State Barber Shop. In the photo, the
woman wears nothing but high-heel
shoes. Leaning against the Lion, she can
be seen at a sideways angle showing part
of her left breast and her backside.
Coleman said the photo was on display
for four days when the landlord, who saw
two 10-year-olds staring at it, asked him
to remove it.
In his letter to alumni, Coleman said:
“Perhaps by this time you may have
heard of the minor bruhaha (sic) in State
College concerning the enclosed photo of
our dear Nittany Lion and its’ (sic)
friend. We thought you might enjoy own
ing a fully matted 16x20- handmade
“Great as a Christmas gift! ” he added
at the close of the letter sent to alumni.
After receiving the letter, Armstrong
wrote to The Daily Collegian, saying:
“The sad . part is that, despite this
desecration of this symbol of our best,
this person is likely to sell too many of
these ... pictures. I’ll do my best to
make this unlikely to happen in
In a telephone interview last week,
Armstrong said, “It’s a terrible thing.
It’ll just lower Penn State’s status.
“We might be old-fashioned, but. . .us
old people respect the Lion,” Arm
strong, a ’36 graduate, added.
But Coleman, who originally denied
any involvement with the photo but now
says he was present when it was taken,
expressed a different view.
“I’d like to think that there are more
important things in life than a relatively

small, relatively tongue-in-cheek mo
ment of fun,” he said.
Armstrong, however, said he did not
see the photo as a joke.
“A joke is something funny,” he said.
“This is something that could have
serious consequences.” Armstrong said
the incident could lead to more nude
photography on campus.
“Before long we could have a whole
nude chorus on the steps of Eisenhower
Auditorium,” he said.
Another alumnus did find the photo
amusing, but not for reasons given by
Frank R. Scheid, a ’3l alumnus living
in Reading, said he received a proof and
showed it to Berks County chapter Penn
Staters at a recent meeting. 1
“They thought it was a laugh until
they heard the price,” he said, “then it
reached the point of absurdity.”
“I can’t imagine anyone paying the $2O
to $6O for the picture,” he said. “To me it
was the height of expectation. The whole
idea was ridiculous.”
Geraldine M. Kester; Altoona, chair
man of the Blair County Women’s Penn
State Club, reacted somewhat different
ly to Coleman’s price.
“Well, it’s too bad they are so expen
sive,” she said. “If they were cheap
enough, I would buy them all and get rid
Although she did not receive a letter
from Coleman, Kester said the photo
would undoubtedly be a “no-no” for the
women in her chapter, which has about a
60 percent “older” membership:
Kester said she is unhappy about the
photo because she said it exploited
women, and said she thinks most of the

“Who knows, maybe you’ll see us
down there soon,” she added.
Another alumnus said he thought the
photo is disrespectful to women.
“It was sort of a trespass,” said
Charles W. Collom, Lancaster County
Penn State Club chairman. “My reac
tion was that it was degrading to women,
degrading to the shrine, and who needs it
“I could see how you could get a pretty
good laugh out of it. But I certainly
wouldn’t frame it or carry it around to
help sell it.” '
But not everyone criticized Coleman.
William A. Trach, Allentown, chair
man of the Lehigh County Penn State
Club, said: “I’m not the kind of person to
say that’s desecrating a shrine.
“The University is taking a dim view
of it which I find rather childish.” In
fact, Trach said he might consider buy
ing a photo if he can see the other poses
that Coleman has advertised.
The photographer should also consider
other locations on campus, Trach said.
He offered the Old Main Tower or in
front of the Obelisk as possibilities.
But Coleman is already one step
ahead. He said as soon as his model
returns from a trip to Europe, he and
friends will organize similar photo
‘ ‘We were just having fun with it, ” Col
eman said, referring to the Nittany Lion
picture. “And we are going to have some
more fun. We’ll be doing some more of

campus, but possibly.”
