Sad news for campus Carter nuts: Chip of the Georgia clan won't be
on the Diag today as was advertised in leaflets and on a Diag banner
this week. Son of Jimmy was slated to plug Democrat Carl Levin in his
race against U.S. Senator Robert Griffin in November, but it turns out
Chipper can't make the Levin appearance. But then again, what would
he have found to say to Dr. Diag?
A taste for terror
Though no one spotted Animal House's Blutarsky or Stratton, their
presence may have been felt Wednesday evening when East Quad
residents staged a mass food fight in their south cafeteria. About 160
students were present when the battle began. According to sophomore
Ken Friedman the event, which began at 5:45 p.m., was planned by a
small group of quaddies. "It lasted 30 seconds. I thought it was very
enjoyable," Friedman said. "The major destructive force was cream
puffs with chocolate sauce on them." Frank Markun, manager of East
Quad's food services, said he had "heard rumors that there might be a
foor fight during the week. We're investigating it." Markun said he
wasn't sure what would happen to the students if they were caught.
One resident suspected the guilty party, if caught, would be subjected
to seconds of all East Quad meals.
First rate
Well, fellow students, you will be pleased to learn that, according to
MBA magazine, a national financial journal, you're attending one of
the country's best universities. MBA Magazine's annual survey rated
the University's business school the highest of all state universities,
and among the top five overall. Accordingto Standard & Poor, a
leading New York financial info firm, more top business execs earned
their Michigan degrees than from any other public college or univer-
sity. Out of 74,000 execs'surveyed, 1,762 held University of Michigan
degrees.

Residential College (RC) students are still graded on a pass/fail
system which includes short written evaluations accessing their
progress though juniors and seniors may opt for either pass/fail or
letter grading for their RC classes. But in October, 1968, RC's system
of rating on a pass/fail basis was put to the test in light of criticism
from both students and administrators. Students and their instructors
charged there was a wide variance in the qualities chosen for
evaluation and in the way evaluations took place. Another problem
cited at the time was that honors, financial aid, and athletic ad-
ministrators needed grades for use in their programs.

with UPI reports
Gov. William Milliken, in. one of the
sharpest attacks yet against his op-
ponent, said state Senator William Fit-
zgerald's PBB-related television ads
have brought the Democrat's campaign
to "a new low in Michigan politics."
"Your reckless advertising, which for
months has been maligning Michigan,
has now imposed a cruel hoax on the
citizens of Michigan," the Republican
governor said in a letter delivered to
the state senator late yesterday after-
noon.
Earlier in the day, Milliken said he
would announce his stand on the school
voucher tax plan within a week.
Speaking to reporters after ad-.
dressing the Lutheran Teachers
Association Convention at the Lansing
Civic Center, the governor said, "I have
it (my mind) pretty well made up. . . I
have a pretty definite idea of where
I'm going."
The voucher plan calls for limiting
the use of property taxes for school fun-
ding. The amendment would require
the state to establish a general school
taxation program for support of schools
and provide for the issuance of a

"You were majority leader in the
Senate when I first proposed lowering
the (PBB) tolerance levels, but you did
nothing to help get passage," Milliken
wrote. "You were- silent and inactive
until you began exploiting the issue in
this campaign."
Milliken, running for a third term in
office, said his opponent is instilling
"absolutely unfounded fears" in voters
that will "linger long after our careers
are decided in November."
Fitzgerald will return from
Washington this afternoon after
meeting with President Carter. Earlier
this week, Fitzgerald accompanied
Carter and other Democrats to Rome to
attend Pope John Paul's funeral.
Fitzgerald Press Secretary Larry
Good said, however, that' the ads are
"legitimate" and will not be taken off
the air.
