Mickelson, now vice-president of the Encyclopedia Britannica Educational Corp. in Chicago, made public a letter to Dr. Ed- ward M. Click, AIPC managing riireclor, in which Mickelson said he was resigning his mem- bership on the institute's board of directors because the press release "puts me in a wholly untenable position." "Since the release was dis- tributed on the letterhead of AIPC with my name listed as a member of the board of direc- tors, the story effectively com- mitted me to endorsing a num- ber of conclusions which are a complete surprise to Mickelson MTote. The institute is a non-profit, non-partisan organization de- voted to analysis of the news media. It is based in Washing- ton, D.C.

Angela Davis help sought by Czechs LONDON (Reufer) An un- derground group of Czechoslo- vak reformists have appealed to Angela Davis to help ensure that a group of political and cul- tural figures detained in their country are given a lair and open trial, said a document re- leased here. The document, signed by the Citizen's Freedom Movement of Prague, was distributed by Am- nesty International, a London- based organization working for the release of all political pris- oners. The document, which Am- nesty said reached here re- cently from the Czechoslovak capital, said Miss Davis's vic- tory "against a seemingly all- powerful, arrogant bureaucratic machine is to us a source of inspiration in our own strug- gle." Miss Davis was acquitted re- cently in San Jose, Calif., of murder, conspiracy and kidnap- ping charges. Official press or- gans in Communist countries said her trial was a "frame-up" to silence her outspoken state- ments on United States political issues. The Czechoslovak document said that, like Miss Davis, "a group of Czechoslovak citizens are being persecuted for having questioned the wisdom of their rulers, and their very compet- ence to run the country." It appealed to Miss Davis to use her influence with the Czechoslovak authorities to be allowed to atend the trials her- self and ensure that visas are granted for foreign journalists who want to attend.

Only persons with special passes were allowed into the courthouse and Western report- ers were turned back. Usually well-informed sources said the charges against all the accused were understood to be under Article 98 of the penal cede, which deals with subver- sion and carries a scnlence of up to 10 years' imprisonment. The first trial grouped Muel- ler, Tesar, Eattek and a fourth young engineer identified as a Mr. Jira.

Bike thefts in California reach epidemic proportions LOS ANGELES (AP) California is being plagued with bicycle lliefls. In 1SI71, an estimate! bikes valued nt up to million were sic- len. In some areas of (be slale the increase since 18G9 lias been 300 per cent. Ono advantage for the thief: lire stakes are not as high as in other kinds of theft. One official says this has attracted drug addicts to the business. "If an addict breaks into a liousc and steals a television sot, that's a felony. Bike theft is a misdemeanor." Still another advantage: Au- thorities have u hard lime proving a bike is stolen. And another: there is a ready market and thieves try to fill a rate that often ex- ceeds the supply. "I stole 300 one for- mer thief anonymously told a Los Angeles Times reporter recently. "On my best night I stole 15. They were easy to steal and easy to sell. I toolc orders and always ran about Id behind. Everybody who gave me orders Itnew it was a ripoff." Olflcials say a 10-specd bike that costs to new can be had for about "hot." Only a few stolen bikes are recovered. In Los Angeles County, where were sto- len last year, fewer than in seven turned up.
