In his first State of the University message on Sept. 30, 1968, newly-
arrived University President Robben Fleming 'called for greater
student participation but condemned "violence, coercion, and
threats" on the part of students. Speaking before 800 faculty members,
their wives and nearly 150 uninvited students in Rackham Lecture
Hall, Fleming warned of the difficulty the University faced in growth
and the financing of that growth. He noted that 1968 was the first year
the University was forced to turnaway qualified applicants.,
All night action
If, like My Fair Lady's Eliza Doolittle, you've got a hankering to
dance all night, head over to the Michigan Union. From 8 p.m. tonight
until 8 tomorrow morning, you can disco there to your heart's content,
or play pinball or billiards or participate in a host of other activities as
the Union Programming Committee sponsors its firtst "all Nighter".
The Union will be alive until the wee hours with dancing, beer, a
student organizations activities fair and a prize raffle, to name a few
of the happenings. Ken Feit, self-proclaimed Fool, will be on hand to
provide entertainment. Admission is $1.00with student I.D.
Happenings...
...this last day of September begin at 10 with the Artists and Craf-
tsmen Guild Fall Art Fair at the Michigan Union. The fair, which runs
until 6, includes displays in the Pendleton Room on the second floor of
the Union. Art-st-in-residence Ken the Fool conducts one-hour
workshops in the first floor Union Gallery. At 11, he'll feature sign
language; puppetry at 1; movement at 3, and story-telling at 4:30. The
fair also features demonstration in the Collaborative studios, lower
level of the Union. Carol Furdato displays her weaving skills at noon,
Barb Tannenbaum demonstrated calligraphy at 1, more weaving with
Ruth Brownley-Green at 2, followed by batik with Carol Shostak at
3 ... the Michigan Cannabis Caucus holds an organizational meeting
at noon in the Tower Room of Eastern Michigan University's McKen-

Oh, brother!
While Jimmy Carter reflects on the achievements of the Camp
David summit, another member of the Carter clan is doing his bit to
promote international harmony. Billy Carter, the presdent's beer-
guzzling sibling, is in Tripoli promoting warmer relations between the
United States and Libya-a puritanical Moslem land where all
alcoholic beverages are verboten. "That will make a nice big dent on
his beer belly,'' remarked on less-than-kind observer, noting that
brash billy is better known for promoting beer in television than for his
expertise. Word that the president's kid brother had arrived in Tripoli
Wednesday on a four-day visit was greeted with other cries of disbelief
from observers of Arab affairs on the Lebanese capital. "Absolutely
impossible," said one Westerner. "This must be the Libyan equivalent
of April Fool's Day."

Skimpier bathing suits than usual adorned the contestants of a
beauty pageant held at the St, Cloud State University in Minnesota -
all the participants were male. And many did not enjoy being on
display in the role-reversal contest nearly as much as they'd expected.
and affirmed they would not choose to repeat the experience. "I've
never been so embarassed in my life," said one contestant as he
paraded before the crowd amidst catcalls and clapping. "Yeah, I felt
just like a cow; just like at the state fair," another agreed. But
moderator Warren Farrellm a men's liberator advocate, knows which
way the wind blows. "Freedom of choice is quite meaningless in the
face of social pressure," he declared. "In a sense, every woman is in a
beauty contest every day of her ife, whether she's attractive or ugly."

By STEPHEN CONN
Most of you would probably opt for
cheering at a football game over
rooting as a medieval joust, but a
growing number of students prefer
those activities normally associated
with knight in shining armor and dam-
sels in distress.
These people are members of MARC,
the Medieval and Renaissance
Collegium. And MARC is more than
just sentimentalism for an age long
past. According to Christine Bor-
nstein, acting director of the program
while Shakespeare scholar Russell
Fraser is on research leave, MARC is a
highly intensified interdisciplinary
humanities program focusing on
various intellectual, cultural and social
aspects of the Middle Ages and the
Renaissance.
THE COLLEGIUM was founded in
1973 by a federal grant from the
National Endowment for the
Humanities. Even though the grant has
since been exhausted, the Univesity has
continued its support of the program.
MARC offers courses ranging from
the history of English criminal law to
paleography. The program draws
students and professors from such
disciplines as law, art history, music,
religion, medicine and philosophy.
"More and more, professors from
around the University are showing an

interest in teaching a course here,"
says Bornstein. "In all, the University
has been very receptive."
This receptiveness has helped with
room space, too. Once cloistered away
in the Law Quad, MARC has since
taken up residence in East Quad and
has established the MARC House there.
The variety of students living in the
house attests to the multidisciplinary
spirit of the program.
"Even graduate students from such
completely' dissimilar fields as
geography, library science and
business have taken housing here," ex-
plains Bornstein. "You don't have to be
taking courses with us to live in MARC
house and share the environment."
Contrary to what some people might
first assume, MARC students believe
their study to be relevant to today's
world. "The Middle Ages and
Renaissance form a great deal od our
culture's background," says one
student. "We are, in fact, still very
much affected by the fusion of thought
between these two ages," adds another.

EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL
Twenty-seven dwarfs, inmates in a reformatory for deviant dwarfs, stage a
wild uprising when the director takes a day off. These anarchistic dwarfs
really go berserk, bombarding the deputy with stones and live hens, smash-
ing furniture, dressing dead insects with miniature clothing, marching in
procession through smoking flower pots, holding aloft a pet monkey tied to
a cross. "Wildly funny and obscenely terrifying."-London International Film
Festival. All dwarf cost. German with subtitles.
