The state conference of the American Association of Umvesity
Professors AAUP) issued a report charging that support public higher
education from Lansing lacked "equity, reason, and adequacy" on
September 29, 1968. In a 21-page indictment of state funding of
Michigan collegesand universities, the AAUP asked, among other
things, that the state abandon acceptance of varying quality among
universities andd establish minimum support standards for all in-

Though the computer terminals are not going to shut down, yester-
day was the last day to CRISP for classes in most University schools
without receiving a "withdrawal." According to unofficial statistics
released by the registrar's office, about 32,000 students enrolled since
last April when pre-registration began. More than half of
them-27,833-drop/added and most of those-20,732-passed through
CRISP during September. "The bid difference between this year and
last," said Assistant University Registrar Tom Karunas, "is that this
year more people came in earlier in September to drop/add. That's
why lines today (Thursday) aren't unmanagabl."

Granted, crickets are neither greyhounds nor thoroughbreds, but
students at Porterville College in California will be cheering just the
same when they hold a cricket race today in their student union
building. The little critters, sporting such names as "Hopalong
Cassidy," and "Jiminy Cricket Jr.," have heavily infested California
this year. The race track is only ten feet long, and the crickets must be
retrieved after the race. One student claims he has the race in the bag:
he's entering a bionic cricket.

AATA service cuts

The Ann Arbor Transportation
Authority (AATA) Board adopted a
number of service adjustments Wed-
nesday night in hopes of curing some of
its budgetary problems.
AATA, presently faced with a $325,000
deficit, will save $75,000 on the adjust-
ments. The changes will result in a
reduction of 3,564 service hours in the
1978-79 fiscal year, which starts Mon-
day. The Board is still uncertain how
much of the remaining deficit will be
covered by state and federal funds.
"THESE CHANGES are a result -of
dollars and nothing else," said Board
Chairman Ed Pear.
The service cuts were decided on the
basis of the number of riders affected,
and the overall service impact.
"Any change in service will effect
someone, we just hope these will have
lesser impact than others>" said
Operations Manager Henry
Changes in public school times made
it possible to stop the Devonshire 0816
outbound van run and to shorten the
duration of the Pontiac Flyer midday.
The additional Liberty-Pauline van
previously used for school trips and the.
5 p.m. Huron corridor outbound were
also cancelled.)
THREE DIAL-A-RIDE tours in the
West Stadium area will be cancelled as
will the Miller vans used for evening
departure. There will be a cutback of
peak-hour Dial-A-Ride in the West
Madison, West Summit, Veterans Ad-
ministration Hospital and Burns Park
zones. Two of the fdur departures from
the VA Hospital during peak hours will
also be eliminated.
Burns Park and Devonshire zones
will be combined during off-peak hours
as will West Madison and Liberty-
Pauline zones. The final adjustment
will be the reduction of headway runs to
one hour on the Huron River Route.
The AATA staff says the changes are
not very serious. In most cases riders
could experience slightly longer
traveling time but will be able to com-
mute without difficulty. Some riders
who formerly used Dial-a-Ride may
find it necessary to switch to main line
buses, board members said.
THE PROPOSED package included
two adjustments which would have
reduced service for the handicapped.
Neither of these proposals passed.
"I'm not too sympathetic to a rider
who resents crossing the street to catch
a bus," said Pear, "but I am very sym-
pathetic Ito those groups who have no
other transportation alternative."
Some board members argued against

the peak service cutbacks.
"I think peak hour cuts are a great
disservice to our riders,"s said Board
member Joyce Chesbourough, "It may
even defeat the purpose of mass tran-
The board ended the fiscal year 1977-
78 with the election of officers. Ed Pear
was elected to another year as board
chairman, Richard McKray was elec-
ted treasurer and Willie Horton will be
secretary. Each candidate was unop-

his days as a range hand, Zebediah
E. G roggs is the proprietor of the
Sagebrush store.
Though Groggs was given a
variety of nicknames from his many
adventures, "Sagebrush Zeb" is the
one he is most fond of. It was given
him when he single-handedly
warded off a herd of stampeding
buffalo by adorning himself with
sagebrush and menacingly charging
the herd. "Folks said I was a sight
fearsome to behold," he stated.
"Now," he continued, "it is time,
that I settled down to a more reli-
able living." In that respect, he said

"a man could do no better than 4o
sell the clothes of Levi Strauss."
Sagebrush will sell only Levi" pnd-
ucts, including Levi's jeans for g~as.
Levi's jeans for guys, Levi's jackets,
