Upfor Crucial Ice Series


In my four years in Ann Arbor I've made some memorable
acquaintances, professors, kooks, rascals, jackals. But one of the
most pleasant and articulate is a mousy furred squirrel named Nutsy b
who habituates one of the fat oaks near the Diag.M
We were conversing the other day when he told me he wanted toi
be interviewed and written up in The Daily. I replied that few peoplei
really care about what a squirrel thinks. "And who cares aboute
what Barry Bluestone, Gary Cunningham, or Lloyd Graff thinkf
for-that matter," he retorted. Perceptive animal.d
Nutsy made one stipulation about the article. "Put it on tape
and then write it down verbatim. I don't want to be miscontrued."
"You mean like they do it in U.S. News and World Report," I
"I mean like Playboy does it," answered Nutsy emphatically. f
Q. Mr. Squirrel, there's been an almost endless series of
articles recently on student activism, college rebellion, adolescent t
idealism, and stuff like that. In your opinion are college students t
substantially different than they were five, ten, or fifteen years I
A. Lloyd, I figured you'd start off with a trite question likeI
that. Isuppose you'd like me to answer in 25 words or less on the
back of a box top. But to answer the question I'd say that college
students are more goal oriented and less likely to laugh than ever1
before. Most of the guys are here to learn a trade or hypo theirt
earning potential, while the majority of girls are trying to pick out
a husband so they can live happily ever after. And they'll all so
gruesomely serious about things.
People used to toss me peanuts or pecans and then chortle as
I entertained them with those cute vaudeville antics we perform. Now
they just throw out their goodies and walk on to the library. Either
they don't have time or don't care to enjoy their deeds. The nuts
don't taste as good.
And those activist people are the worst. I mean I respect them,
I admire them, and they give me more walnuts per capita than other
campus groups, but they are oppressive aren't they? They're so
caught up with themselves, with the sanctity of their mission, and
so cocksure about the worthlessness of their opponents' viewpoints.
Q. Do you distrust people who are sure of themselves?
A. Yes. Particularly when I'm positive they're wrong.
Q. All right Squirrel, let's try spmething else, and don't be so
verbose. Are athletics too professionalized at Michigan?
A. There's no doubt that football and basketball are the closed
preserve of those on full rides. And it is a perversion of education to
hire athletes by paying for their education. But the good which
results from unifying the campus around a team probably com-
pensates. It's tough to argue against a football Saturday. And the
fact is, that most of the athletes at Michigan are hardly the mental
slabs of granite that some would make them out.
Q. Some quickies. Who's the most beautiful woman in the world?
A. Rita Tushingham or Thelma Ritter.
Q. That's what happens when you ask a squirrel. What do you
think of Paul Goodman?
A. I might agreewith him if he was intelligible.
Q. How do you stand on draft deferments.
A. Everyone should be taken but squirrels.
Q. Be serious.
A. Look, if you thought seriously about war they'd say you were
made or a Commie pacifist. Frankly, the idea of killing a fellow
squirrel to gain respect, prestige, and security is folly as far as
I'm concerned.
Q. Is Cazzie Russell a greater player than Bill Bradley?
A. Compare gold and platinum.
Q. Do you like the Bond movies?
A. I go to the flicks for the cartoons. They're more realistic.
Love those Tom and Jerry documentaries.
Q. Is your favorite composer Tchaikovsky because he wrote The
Nutcracker Suite?
A. I go for Specter, McCartney and Lennon, and Bach, buddy.
Make this the last. I'm hungry.
Q. Who's the fairest man of all?
A. Why, you Lloyd, of course.
Now I'm sure. Nutsy.
