Smashing home goals at the
furious rate of 1.9 per game
(Michigan leads the league scor-

can offensively be classified as the

An open letter to the
Michigan State Senate
Dear Kiddies,
It's nice to know that you're considering investigating student
activism at state universities, including good old Michigan. All the
kids here are pleased to know that you haven't forgotten that the
school exists, after all. We were really worried about it for a while,
because so few of you come down here any more, even on invitation.
Actually, you guys really don't have to worry about activism
on this campus. Here I am, working at the supposed center of
college activism (the Daily), for most of my college career, and I
can confidently report that there isn't much activity in Ann Ar-
bor. In fact, most of the activists I know are ineffectual boobs
who sleep a lot.
Now, let's talk for a moment about the real incidents at Michi-
gan. We'll take one example, say the time the black students took
over the administration building. Remember that one? I'm sure the
Grand Rapids Press or whatever you read played it up real big.
Well here I was, anyway, just getting out of my classes, and I
walked over to the Daily and someone said, "Say, did you hear some
black students took over the administration building?" And I said
no, I didn't and asked what else happened. He said "Oh, they already
left," so I said nuts because I missed another rare incident of acti-
vism, The next day, all the people who read the Daily noticed somej
black students had taken over the administration building and then
went to their classes.
Later, Michigan hired a black coach or two. And the movement
ended. Big deal.
You know, the trouble with you fellows is that you don't real-
ize this campus is basically a tired old conservative institution
because you, the parents of the students here, are tired old con-
servatives. Therefore, Berkeley, won't happen here, and Columbia
won't happen here. Nothing will happen here, and anybody who
thinks otherwise will get awfully bored waiting for the Messiah.
Now, as long as we're on the subject of universities, a subject you
seldom dwell on, here is the real picture:
First of all, four of my five classes are miserably overcrowded and
the fifth:is full to the brim. But that's nothing compared to what
happened to my roommate the other day, when he went to the first
lecture of the semester in one of his courses in an auditorium seating
300 and found '00 students waiting for him.j
Does, this remind any of you of the Sorbonne? You know,
that's the university in Paris that was the start of all those fan-
tastic riots in France last year. Well anyway, that's the place
where they allow an unlimited number of people to enroll in any
course and then lock the doors when the room is full. If you can't
get in, tough.
There are also a couple of other minor problems. Like I'm almost
afraid to visit a professok in his office for fear of an avalanche of
books falling on my head when he opens the door to what is little
more than a walk-in closet. It's already happened once, and even
though it's not the professor's, fault that he doesn't have enough room,
from now on I'm standing out in the hall when I visit an office.
While we're at it, the intramural facilities at this school are still
a very adequate ;amount for the 12,000 students that were here sev-
eral decades ago, but recently people have been known to wait two
hours for a paddleball court.
In conclusion, I'd like to ask you fellows, if any of you are
really coming to investigate activism, to take a look at the actual
problems while you are trying to satisfy your imagination.
Yours truly,
