three questions, "What is the pur-

Thief Removes
$1800 Mural
A tapestry valued at $1,800 was
stolen during intersession from the
Michigan Union.
The 9' x 12' tapestry had been
hung from a rod on the wall just
north of the double doors in the
Union's main lobby.
Police could offer no clues as
to the identity of the thief, the
whereabouts of the tapestry or
how it was removed.
Union General Manager Frank-
lin Kuenzel said the mural appar-
ently was stolen "about 10 days
ago," although there may have
been a lapse of perhaps one or
two days between the theft and
the discovery by a janitor of the
tapestry's disappearance. I
