Judge Warnas Thieves

"A person who obtains a
conviction for larceny will have
a record which is very difficult
to explain when applying for
professional school, enlistment
in the Armed Services, and
With this warning, Judge
Francis L. O'Brien of the Ann
Arbor Municipal Court explain-
ed yesterday the seriousness of
what many University students
have considered a harmless
prank. He referred to the ris-
ing tide of minor thefts re-
ported by merchants around
the city.
"The grocery stores, A & P
particularly, have complained
bitterly about the amount of
theft. Inventory has decreased
in a 1 a r m i n g proportions,"
O'Brien commented. He contin-
ued that, whereas in the past
merchants often warned stu-
dents who were caught stealing,
they were no longer tolerating
any form of theft.
More Crimes
O'Brien released a statement
recently which clarified the ris-
ing proportion of c r i m e s,
"There have been 83 convic-
tions for larceny since Dec. 1
as compared with 34 cases over
the same period last year."
O'Brien said he could not
find any significant reason for
the increase. However, John
Miles, chairman of Joint Judi-
ciary, attributed the problem to
the fact that "the word around
the quads and around town is
'you can get away with it'."
The simple truth is that the
chances for getting away with
it are growing slim. A two-
pronged attack by merchants
and authorities to discourage
larceny has been started.
Preventive Measures
The local retailers have in-
itiated preventive measures to
observe the slightest theft.
Campus Drugs, for example,
has a one-way mirror in the
store, and a full-time employe
watches the activity. Several
grocery stores are reported to
have floorwalkers on duty at
all times.

JUDGE FRANCIS L. O'BRIEN (above) of the Ann Arbor
Municipal Court issued a warning yesterday of a crackdown
on petty larceny, in reference to the rising tide of minor
thefts reported by merchants around the city.

In addition, once individuals
are caught, charges will be
brought against them. This
may be a reason for the statis-
tical increase in reported thefts,
since many merchants only
issued warnings in the past.
Consequences will be serious
for individuals brought before
the court, O'Brien said.
"Although jail sentences have
been imposed in the past, the
rate of theft has continued to
increase," he explained.
"Therefore, regardless of the
personal consequences to the
individual, those who assume
the risk of stealing, even
though the amount involved is
relatively small, must expect
to go to jail."
Most of the crimes have been
larcenies of less than $100.
Such offenses are -classified as
misdemeanors, and carry a

maximum penalty of a $100
fine plus costs and restitution
and/or 90 days in jail. In addi-
tion, any University student
can also face charges before
Joint Judiciary for the same
crime. ,
Judge O'Brien estimated that
a "fair" percentage, possibly as
high as 50 per cent, of those
charged were University stu-
dents. Joint Judiciary records
show that since Christmas there
have been 15 cases of larceny
ruled on or pending. "Last year
I remember one," noted Miles.
Above all, O'Brien empha-
sized that even the most minor
theft is marked on the student's
record. He described the num-
ber of students convicted as
"much higher than it should
be" and urged all to consider
the eventual consequences of a
hasty action.

administrative costs are placed in
a special fund earmarked for the
construction of on-campus park-
ing facilities. He estimated the
fund at $125,000.
The graduate report claims,
however, that the auto permit
money originally collected to fi-
nance student parking facilities in
the campus area is no longer
sought with that intent.
"Parking structures have been
ruled out due to the cost of $2000
per car" to build a structure, the
report states. It adds that no ef-
fective alternatives have been pro-
posed by the administration to
"alleviate the increasingly crowd-
ed conditions of the campus area
Rising Costs
Perigo conceded that rising
property costs have made financ-
ing new structures difficult. But
he said his office, in conjunction
with a special student-adminis-
trator driving committee, is seek-
ing less expensive alternatives to
alleviate the parking situation. As
an example of their efforts he
cited the rental of the top two
floors in the Thompson St: park-
ing structure for student use.
Perigo raised the possibility of
a plan whereby automobiles could
be parked on North Campus facili-
ties and the students bussed into
the Central Campus-financed by
the "E" sticker fees. This method
of .'remote parking" has been
used successfully on other urban
campuses such as the University
of Illinois, Perigo said.
The GSC report does not spe-
cifically rule out these alterna-
tives, but calls for a survey of
students, faculty and employes
probing their sentiments on pos-
sible solutions.
Traffic Patterns
The report stresses that the
"solution to the parking problem
can only be arrived at in con-
Junction with the planning of fu-
ture housing developments." It
also urges a study of future traffic
patterns, claiming that adminis-
trators are charting needs on the
basis of current traffic and park-
ing patterns.
* The graduate report is also
critical of the present use of "E"
sticker funds which are support-
ing administrative costs. "The
present sticker sales pay the sal-
aries of two part-time secretaries,
1 one full-time administrator and
three full-time patrolmen plus
operating costs," it declares.
Perigo defended the need for
these employes as a protection to

Prof. George W. Stroke, head

"A grating," he explained, "is
an array of parallel grooves ruled

There are from 7500 to 60,000:

When light strikes a grating, it
is broken up into its constituents.
This is what would happen if it
were passed through a prism, but
a grating permits more consti-
tuents of the light to be distin-
guished more clearly.
An atom which has absorbed a
suitable amount of energy will
emit light at specific frequencies
or colors which are characteristic
of it. Thus, by analysis of its

"Ninety per cent of our basic
knowledge of the universe comes
from spectroscopy," Stroke said.
A few months ago, the atmos-
phere of Venus was found to con-
tain water vapor. A diffraction
grating was sent up in a balloon,
under the direction of Prof. John
Strong of John Hopkins Univer-
sity. From the spectrum of the
light reflected from the planet it
was found that its atmosphere
absorbed light in a way that
proved it contained water. vapor.

The best gratings now are 10

will try to develop gratings of 30

How To Become Rich with Minimum Effort

Once upon a time there was a very poor Midwestern boy who wore
one pair of corduroy overalls all through college. When he graduated
he-applied for a job at an advertising agency.
"What can you do?" asked the grey-flannelled, briefcase-carry-
ing man who spent his life writing soap commercials.
"I can read Racine in French," replied the poor boy, fresh from
a liberal arts education.
"Well, no one is perfect," shrugged the man with the martini in
his hand and gave the boy $15 a week to carry heavy packages. But
the poor boy dropped too many packages and was relegated to the
radio department of the agency. There he worked, when lo and be-
hold, with minimum effort he became the vice-president for television
at Benton and Bowles Agency in New York.
'Young Pr. Malone'
He helped create the teleprompteraand "Young Dr. Malone" and
discovered that the more he made Malone's fans cry, the higher the
TV ratings went. And the TV ratings went up and up and the young
man was a success.
Then the voung man wrote a book about his experiences and

the population who preferred light entertainment that does not make
them think.
He said that there was nothing wrong with a little light .enter-
tainment, if really stimulating drama and fine music were also to be
presented on TV. However, he continued, television networks tried
scheduling a lot of high quality entertainment and found that people
simply turned off their television sets.
College Preparation
"I graduated from college trained for culture," said Mead. He
said that this type of training led to two possible careers: teaching
culture, or going into mass culture.
Mead thought the mass culture trap could be slowly eliminated
by gradually raising the quality level of TV programming. He said
the growth of community theatres and such programs which actively
involved people in culture could also help beat the mass culture rut.
Mead, who describes himself as a man "interested in every,
thing," said that educational TV could be a fantastically exciting
thing. He thinks there is no end to the possibility of what America
could do with television and that British TV programs tend to be
of higher quality because they were not dependent upon advertising
for monetary support.
