The giraffe, a 130-pound female named Kawa'di Mtolo or "Gift Child" in Sawhili, was born Nov. 15. Tanaka resigns Japanese post over f i nan TOKYO (AP) Hailed two years ago as Japan's man of the future, Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka says he is resigning in shame and embarrassment over "misunderstandings" about the sources of his private fortune. The 56-year-old maverick of Japanese politics announced today .that he would remain as prime minister until the. ruling Liberal Democratic party can find a successor, This'xould take two weeks.: The leading contenders are- former Finance Minister Takeo Fukuda, 69, Tanaka's chief political foe, '-and Finance Minister Masayoshi Ohira, 64; a powerful Tanaka supporter. The resignation plunged (he conservative, government party into turmoil. The Fukuda.group insisted that-a new party president and prime minister be chosen through con- sultation among party leaders. The Ohira faction was holding out for a full-scale party vote. Fukuda has the backing of former Prime Minister Eisaku Sato and former Deputy Prime Minister Takeo Miki, but this is regarded as insufficient. He is seeking a consensus because he feels :ne cannot defeat the combined Tahaka-Ohira forces, in a straight vote among the dozen or so factions party. A combination of. fac- tions led by Tanaka. Ohira and Yasuhiro Nakasone Tanaka's minister of international trade KAKUKITANAKA an.d industry defeated Fukuda in 1972. If the deadlock continues up to Dec. 10, a party convention is expected to be called. Nicknamed the "com- puterized bulldozer" because of his energy and skill with finances, Tanaka began his stewardship of.the nation in July .1972 by spcarhe.-iding a successful -campaign; to recognize mainland China. He ended it after another spec- tacular, the Nov. 18-22 visit of President Ford, the first American chief executive ever to come to Japan. .In between, inflation, soaring living costs? international monetary" problem's .and suggestions by the respected Bungei Sninju magazine that he had' used his office for private gain brought him down. Tanaka looked like a beaten man wheiV he 'handed; his resignation as'party president to four top LDP executives at his'official residence next to the Diet, or parliament building. 'in a resignation statement, he said: "I deeply feel political ..arid moral.responsibility for the current political -confusion which. has resulted from my. personal problems.'.', He said he eventually plans to "make.clear the truth and seek the. understanding of tiie people." He added that misunderstanding among' the for a moment, means that it. is a matter of shame as a public official that I feel hard to endure." He said he was'stepping down because Japan has many problems requiring urgent .solutions: "When thinking about the future of our country, I fee! as if the rain came down in torrents in one night." the letter con- tinued. Before going to the party chiefs with his decision, Tanaka. telephoned his motheh and offered prayers at a Buddhist shrine. He told his cabinet after the party accepted his resignation.' Suburb board axes minorities' program NETHER PROVIDENCE Any chance 10 minority studen ts had to attend the Wallingford Swarthmore School District for free was killed Monday night by the school board. Despite efforts, by board members Mrs. Martha Shane and Ann Hazard, the board declined to put off a vote on whether to waive tuition for 10 minority students under the "A Better (ABO program next year in Swar- thmore. The tuition waiver was then defeated 5-4, with Swar- thmprean Maxey Morrison casting the deciding vote against, -after Nether Providence members Richard Sterrett and Jane Miluski had voted in favor of the plan. The program would have benefited students to be chosen from ABC's Eastern -regional list. Students would have come from more than 100 miles away- to live in Swarthmore. A house provided by the Swarthmore Presbyterian Church wpuld have been staffed "by live-in counselors, paid by ABC. Similar programs are under way in Radnor and Lower Merion. Morrison read a statement saying that "the taxpayer just cannot afford the additional costs the change would said if the program ran for 10 years as it Is set up to district would lose "Can we add any more taxes to carry such a program when we know the residents are already bearing an almost unbearable tax he asked. ABC was first presented to the board for consideration by Mrs. Hazard nine months ago, and all members praised the program, indicating that if the tuition is paid by other sources, the board would be glad to welcome the minority students to Swarthmore High School. Prior to the vote, a number of people from the 50-member audience spoke in favor of the and urged tuition waivers. Speakers included Professor Movement of objects called hoax BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) City police today said that the reported movement of objects within a private home "is an apparanthoax." The short statement was issued, after an overnight in- vestigation at the home of Mr. and-Mrs.-, Geraid Goodin and their 10-year-old daughter. Authorities promised further details later today. The reports, which had been confirmed by firemen and at least one priesl, attracted psychic researchers, hundreds of curious onlookers and news media to the small house. Fletcher Bryant, assistant dean of admissions of Swarthmore College; John Polk, vice chairman of the Swarthmore Planning Commission; Edwin- Collins, director of the Upward Bound program at Swar- the Rev. Lyman Ogilvy, Episcopal bishop of the Pennsylvania Diocese; the Rev. Milton Eastwick of Morgan- wood; Hal Doig, president of the Swarthmore Property Owners Association; and Douglas Bedell, chairman of the Outreach Committee of. Swarlhmore Presbyterian Church. In addition to the monetary objections expressed by the five directors who voted against the proposal .for tuition waiverc. president Bernard Moran had a "philosophical" objection: "It is not fair to this board just to dump things on it, and let it take the said. Mrs. Shane said the board should consider that the failure to get waivers could kill the program, -and deprive the students of vital opportunities. She said ,thc taxpayers can afford the program, "without sacrifice." The board voted for a resolution for a tax anticipation note and establishing a sinking fund to repay it by Dec. It also approved a study of population trends to be done by Temple University in order to better program requirements for vocational technical education.
