Hef leads the pack-
What magazine leads the subscription lists in Washtenaw County,
with all its institutions of higher learning and bright, affluent
populace? Time? Newsweek? Fortune? Actually, it's Hugh Hefner's
skin mag, Playboy ahead by a mile. With 12,288 readers, Playboy tops
next-best read Time by 2,000, according to the Audit Bureau of
Circulation, which ought to know.
Take ten
With the number of students signing petitions to end the University
language requirement climbing to over 1,200 on October 13, 1968, the
Romance Languages Department began subjecting its language
program to a critical evaluation. The debate raging between students
and faculty concerned the quality of teaching on the 100 and 200 levels
and the success or failure of the language program in meeting its
goals.
Sister Alan ?
Loyola University's Alan Citron, a self-proclaimed "social failure,"
recently decided to come out of his cocoon to become a social
butterfly. How you ask? He joined a sorority-how else? Citron wrote
abput his newfound Theta Phi Alpha sisterhood for the New Orleans
Times-Pecayune. Citron described the difficulty he had involving
himself in "Conversations about bake sales, curling irons, and guys
who try to go too far." But Citron is steadily finding it easier to fit in
and says he plans to run for social chairman.

S. Africa
keeps lid
on books,
magazines
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP)-The government's censorship
board yesterday lifted a 21-year ban on
the novel, "Peyton Place," but added
some new publications to its list of
18,000 magazines, films and even T-
shirts deemed undesirable for South
African distribution.
The government does not have to ex-
plain why a publication is banned, or
taken off the censorship list, and it did
not in the case of the American novel
about life in a small New England town.
THE LATEST additions to the ban-
ned list included a book titled "How to
Pick Up Girls," "The Redbook Report
on Female Sexuality," and the Septem-
ber issue of "Photography," which had
color photos of nude women.
The ban is inspired largely by a strict
adherence to tenets of the Calvanistic
settlers of South Africa, who take a dim
view of dissemination of sex-related
material. Beyond that the government
censors articles and books dealing with
apartheid-racial segreation-
policies.
The board's guidelines for censorship
include:
" "Shameless exposure of the morbid
treatment of the sex act and the presen-
tation of* extramarital relationships in
such a way that they appear to be
natural."
* Unsavory language including "ex-
cessive non-functional taking the
Lord's name in vain."
* Excessive violence.
* A threat to security of the state.
Appeal is described as difficult.
So vast is the ban, one enterprising
company does a flourishing business
supplying monthly reports on the
decisions so that bookshops, film
distributors, publishing firms and
libraries can keep abreast.
Possessing a copy of "Playboy" or
"Penthouse" here can lead to a $350
fine or a jail term.

It might be a nuclear sub. Or a billion dollar aircraft carrier.
At the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, you can test and maintain
the most sophisticated technology in the world, with hands-
on experience that could increase your salary by 50 per-
cent in three years. Th~at's a lot faster than you can advance
in almost any private industry.
