The unnamed cub, born Nov. 30, took a ride clutched in mama's mouth, right, and then peeks out from behind her. U.S. college students develop new tactics By TERRY RYAN Associated Press Staff Writer Forsaking violent demon- strations, a new generation of college students is turning back to the system and its tools to change the things they find wrong with the U.S. From Boston to Berkeley, from Wisconsin to Texas, a campus visitor finds evidence of key changes in student ac- tivities 'and attitudes: Tim Higgins, president of the University of Wisconsin Student Association, ex- pressed an attitude encoun- tered again and again in in- terviews with students, stu- dent leaders and administra- tors on more than a dozen once volatile campuses: "People are beyond the point of pricking the system just to make it jump. Stu- dents would rather'build their own thing into the system." Robbie Stamps, wounded at Kent State by National Guard rifle fire the day four students were slain in May, 1970, ex- pressed the frustration many students feel: "Nothing we tried did any good. We will only get shot again if we try to do the same things." JUST AS DETERMINED While the major campuses have been outwardly calm, they are by no means indiffer- ent. Rogers Pass area safety from avalanches big task GOLDEN, B.C. (CF) The Rogers Pass section of the Trans-Canada Highway has 16Z known slide paths where aval- anches may reach the road. It's the business of Fred Schleiss, senior avalanche fore- caster, to make sure there are no spectacular slides. If there were such slides, Canada's main highway link with British Columbia could be cu'. for days. Safety of the pass in Glacier National Park also depends on the marksmenship of R'oyal Canadian Horse Artillery gun- ners. Under a system devised with help from the National Re- search Council, there are 19 gun positions along the' 23 m fl e stretch of the highway where crews can pxe oh 141 of the slide paths, day or night, and regardless of the 'weather HEAVY SNOW Yearly snowfaH averages about 35 feet in the mountain areas of the pass and 20 feet has already fallen. Gun crews, using 105 milli- 100 Copies plus tax 3269 Thi mitre howitzers, have fired 338 rounds this year at a cost of (63 a shell. If it continues as an average year, gunners will fire more than 650 rounds and the Pass will be closed 130 hours. More than 100 lives have been lost in avalanches in toe area during the last 100 years, the worst occurring in 1911 when about 60 railway workers died in a slide. First line of defence is con- crete snpwsheds straddling the worst of the avalanche paths which cross ths highway. Earthworks have also bsen erected on the mountain-sides to deflect snow frcm the high- Way. Forecasting stations are spot- ted through the "ass with the main one on Fidelity Mountain where full-tune staff keep track of weather conditions and stab- ility of the snow in the zone where slides are generated. PBOBE 'MYSTERIES Mr. Schleiss of Glacier Park has' been probing the mysteries of avalanche activity in the area since 1958. He orders gun crews to shoot the snow after a study is made of the aval- anche warning indicators. If snow was allowed to build up Ofi the slopes overlooking the highway, a major slide could close the pass for the winter, Mr. Schleiss 'said in an interview. gun ,crsws setting off snnflll avalanches in winter, traffic interruptions are held to a minraum and the h u g e slides that used to come during the spring thaw have ended. TIME LIMIT FOR RECEIVING PETITIONS FOR PRIVATE BILLS Take notice that the time for receiv- ing petitions for Private Bills at the next Session of the Legislative Assembly will ex- pire on Monday, the twenty-first day of February, 1972. W. H. MacDonald, Clerk of "The quiet on this campus should not be mistaken for ap- said Larry Daimond, one of four co-presidents of the Stanford student body. "The students are just as bit? ter and more determined to rip off a piece of the real power to change the country tte way we want it changed." To Daimond, who is work: ing in the presidential cam- paign of Senator McGovern, the way to get changes is in the voting booth. Cynicism, however, abounds on college campuses. "I feel like it will not make any said Diane Weil, a black woman and an- other Stanford co-president. "A president is a president is a pig. He is going to be a white, racist, capitalistic pig." Said Wisconsin student President Higgins: "The feel- ing now is not the apathy of the 1950s. People are much more serious about where they are going. They are into finding out something about the system because they can- not construct an alternative to something you do not under- stand." RADICALISM DECLINES The draft, handmaiden of the war in campus protests, also has faded into the back- ground because of the lottery system and reduced draft calls. Harvard draft counsellor BUI Schendel said "i'don't think many of them care enough to protest about it an- ymore." The radical organizations that remain on campus have turned to different tactics as they search for issues that would move the stiide'nl masses to protest. the demise' of radicalism is obvious on many campuses. Bullhorns are seldom heard in the Harvard yard. Notices of films to be shojra have re- placed rally announcements on the outdoor bulletin boards at Stanford. Somewhere along the line ths raoMs deserted the cam- puses. 'Some have graduated, others left to live in'radical communities that have sprung up near many colleges. "It is almost a stigma to be a student, if you are a radi- said Pat McGilligan, ed- itor of the Wisconsin student newspaper. Friendly jailer saved life of sheik LONDON (-neuter) In the closing days of the India-Paki- stan war, a shallow grave was dug next to the West Pakistan cell of East Pakistani leade'r Sheik Mujibur Rahman. An execution squad arrived at the prison with false documents showing that the sheik-freed Saturday after eight months captivity-had been executed more than a month before. But, said a close aide qf the sheik who told the story liere Saturday rasht, a friendly jailer saved the life of the East Paki- stani leader. The jailer heard that Presi- dent Yahya Khan was about to abdicate and took the sheik to ils own quarters and hid him there for two days. Mujibur was freed Saturday by Zulfikar All Bhutto, who be- came president nfter Pakistan's detent in the December war with India and Yahya's resigna- tion.
