Libels ready
hapless uac




Will the uac muggers show up
today? This is the question plagu-
ing the Daily Libels, grid division
of the Revolutionary Vanguard
Clarence "Biggie" Copi, some-;
tme coach of the fierce Libel
squad, and who threatens to play:
if "my wife will let me out," said
"We're gonna be out at Wines
Field at 5:00 this afternoon, but
I'm really worried about t h o s e
honkie mugger slobs getting up
the guts to show up.
"We've murdered them 78 years
in a row now, and I just don't
know if those pansies can take it
any more. It would be a bad
psychological blow to my boys to
have to forget about this o n e.
They've been high for two weeks
Fans may remember that mug-
ger spy, Rod Robert, begged off

cal Libel practice session in which
killer tackle, center, receiver, etc.,
Ron "Loathsome" Landsman be-
came excited and bit a police dog
to death when it tried to r u n
through a team huddle.
But Landsman is not the only
maniac the Libels will field today.
The undefeated, untried, and un-
scored upon (in 78 years, ofI
cours,) football steamroller also
boasts of the nation's top quar-
terback, Jelly Bean Neubacher.
Neubacher threw for 50,067 yards
and ran for 21,098 more in last
season's 6-12 whitewash of the

fastest, strongest, quic ke s t,
smoothest, to say nothing of his
sticky fingers, pass-catcher ever,
DT's Cusumano. "We ain't fooling

around this year," said the mo-
dest star, as he honed the edges
of his baseball spikes with a file.
"We've been bombed on South-
'rn Comfort for three weeks try-
ing to get in shape to take this
bloodbath seriously."
Cusumano claims he owes every-
thing he is today to his scienti-
fic drinking and smoking program
he has followed religiously since
he was 13.
While Cusumano is running cir-
cles around the mugger "defense,"
and the term "defense" is used
loosely, two other potential All-
Americans will be helping to per-
petrate the cruel joke. Hopalong
Hannes, a 9.2 wind-aided sprinter
is set to languish in the end zone
waiting for a few long bombs to
come his way. Opening the middle
of the mugger "defense" from his
center spot will be ferocious
"Monster Man" O'Donoghue.
The stingy Libel defense, which
leads the nation in all depart-
ments is headed Foxy Forrester.
"We haven't figured out what we
re going to do yet," he said yes-
terday, "but they don't have a
damn thing and I hear they don't
even plan to bring their billy clubs,
so why get all worked up about it?
As soon as I smell the odor of

their pig hides, the defensive
alignment will come to."
When Forrester was told that
the muggers plan to start three
avovew fascist including Curt
"Bomb the Commies" Dismay, he
exclaimed, "By God, if those finko
rats want to cheat again this year,
they've had it. I'm going to throw
my LSA Building defense at 'em.
Just let 'em try to gain one yard!"
The only doubtful starter for
today's "contest" is Buster Block,
who was the only one of the 107
who couldn't raise bail. "We may
take up a collection on the Diag
at noon today," said Coach Copi,
"if the Concerned Citizens of Ann
Arbor don't come through."
As for the uac game plans, a
team spokesman said, "I don't
know anything about any game
with the Libels. I didn't even know
those brilliant newspapermen had
a team."
It was learned by the Daily late
yesterday, however, that the lying I
mugger child molesters have been
feverishly plotting deep within

year. One wonders why they
should even bother, but as DT's'

A throng of 50,000 screaming'

Gridde Pickings

As the communication from uac which ran in this space yester-
day proves, the uac muggers have once again turned on their tails
and are on the run before the mighty Daily Libels. Since the mug-
gers know that they will be ignomiously defeated this afternoon on
the football field, they have resorted to the only tactic left, a smear
campaign. However, as those who read the uac communique know, the
muggers are no better at writing hate letters than they are at playing
They are even worse at writing gridde pickings. An example of
their incompetence, a paid advertisement with their putrid gritty
picks head, runs on page eight. The muggers failed miserably in their
attempt to act nasty, demonstrating only that they are illiterate as
well as ignorant. If they can find enough courage in whatever it
is they drink from those brown paper bags to show up today, they
will only show how stupid they really are.
In the event that any muggers are able to walk at the conclusion
of today's festivities, The Daily will send them complimentary tickets
to the next Johnny Carson performance on campus. For those mug-
gers not fortunate enough to walk away from the altercation, con-
tributions to the mugger memorial fund may be sent to The Daily
where proceeds will be used to help celebrate the people's triumph.

After all is shed and
done, your soul may be
saved ... but your contacts
need help. They need Len-
sine. Lensine is the one con-
tact lens solution for com-
plete contact care. preparing,
cleansing, and soaking
There was a time when you
needed two or more different lens
solutions to properly prepare and
maintain your contacts. No more.
Lensine, from The Murine Com-
pany, makes caring for contact
lenses as convenient as wearing
Just a drop or two of Lensine
coats and lubricates your lens.
This allows the lens to float more
freely in the eye, reducing tearful
irritation. Why? Because Lensine

is a compatible, "isotonic" solu-
tion, very much like your eye's nat-
u-al fluids.
Cleaning your contacts with
Lensine retards the build-up of
foreign deposits on the lenses.
And soaking your contacts in Len-
sine between wearing periods as-
sures you of proper lens hygiene.

It has been demonstrated the -

ings permits the
growth of bacteria on
the lenses. This is a
sure cause of eye ir-
ritation and in some
cases can endanger
your vision. Bacteria can-
