Washington as Moses?
Colunmnist Wills thinks so

By WILLIAM THOMPSON
Today's loyal patriots,haccustomed
to picturing George Washington chop-
ping down cherry trees and crossing the
IDelaware, would be astonished to see
the Father of Our Country painted as
Moses.
But newspaper columnist Garry Wills
claimed yesterday' that throughout
American history many have,portrayed
Washington as the American Moses.
Wills, this year's speaker for the
twenty-fourth William W. Cook Lec-
tures on American Institutions, opened
his four. day series of talks by
examining "The Hero of Moses." Wills
will continue his series on "Heroism in
American Art and Politics" for the next
three days in 100 Hutchins Hall.
An author and college professor as
well as a journalist, the clean-cut Wills
discussed the treatment of George
Washington as a Moses figure,
claiming, "George Washington was the
Moses of America's escape from
Egypt."

Wills quoted biographies, poems, and
comments from Washington's contem-
poraries which likened him to Moses,
'George Washington was
the Moses of America's
escape from Egypt.,
- Colum n ist Garry Wills
saying, "despite Biblical rummaging
from fresh comparisons, most were
brought back to Moses."
Wills flashed slides of works of art
which depicted Washington, while
giving witty descriptions of what effect
each artist was trying to create. He
admitted that "George Washington
didn't lend himself to divine treat-
ment." Wills concluded his lecture by
dubbing Washington, "the Moses that
won't happen."
The Cook Lectures on American In-
stitutions have taken place at the

University since 1944. They are named
for William Cook, a Michigan law
graduate who died in 1930.
Cook was involved in contributing the
Cook Law Quadrangle and the Martha
Cook residence hall to the University
and established the William W. Cook
foundation to sponsor the lectures.

The late movie star, Francis
Bushman, was so popular he was often
forbidden to visit public places because
women rioted trying to get to him.

explained last week that a salesman
he employed had forged six contracts in
the names of area merchants, causing
the difficulty.
LeMAR MENTIONED such "bad
publicity" as anothe reason why he will
stop publication of "The Entertainer.,"
LeMar said a survey of some of the
150 customers who currently have or-
ders pending for LeMar's $9.95
passbook showed that "two-thirds don't
want their books because of bad
publicity."
"On campus I'm' ruined," LeMar
said. He said in West Quad, from which
he received 28 ,orders, only one
customer still wanted a passbook.
ACCORDING TO LeMar, the
salesman who committed the alleged

hangefc
forgery has agreed to sign a written
statement claiming responsibility for
the forgery and relieving LeMar of all
liablility for the bad coupons. A
"He's signing a piece of paper saying
he's responsible if anybody sues me,"
said LeMar.
LeMar said the agreement also calls
for the salesman, a University junior,
to give back the $25 per contract
payments he received from LeMar as
commission on the contracts. In ad-
diton, the salesman will give LeMar an
undetermined sum of money as a "good'
faith" deposit, LeMar said.
LeMAR SAID that before compiling-a
new passbook, he will approach owners
of every establishment in the current
coupon book to ask if they want to be in
the new publication.

or coupo
Fifteen of the 24 Ann Arbor merchan-
ts listed in the current coupon book
agree that they have valid contracts
with LeMar. Many of the restaurants
who do not have contracts are honoring
the coupons anyway, most of them
claiming that the practice is good for
business.
LeMar said that owners of the 350

books

coupon books already distributed will
receive form letters in the near future
informing them that they can receive
two valid coupons to other area eateries
by returning the invalid coupons for
Sander's ice cream stores. LeMar said
that Sander's is the only merchant he
knows of who is not honoring the
fraudulent coupons.

City budget passes

(Continued from Page 1)
include updated expenditures mainly
"for street repair, as well as for salaries,
~overtime, and consultant fees for
several city departments.
SOME $225,000 in unexpected
revenues were received because of a $1
parking fine hike and increased state
payments for city fire protection of the
University. The city also used $74,600 in
prior year revenues-$60,000 more than
City Administrator Sylvester Murray's
recommendation-to balance this
year's budget.
The major change in the Republican
amendments was in $285,000 allocated
to the Forestry Department, $29,000
more than was originally allocated last
May. Republican Mayor Louis Belcher
said a total of about 1,300 trees will be
planted this fall.
Councilwoman Leslie Morris (D-
Second Ward) said she considered the
revision in the Forestry Department
allocation a "major Democratic vic-
tory." Added Morris," "It's unfortunate
that. the process (of budget con-
sideration) had to be legally com-
pelled."
Councilman Ken Latta (D-First
Ward) concurred in an earlier
statement: "It's obvious that the
Republican amendments have im-
proved through the process."
The portions of the budget acquired
from state and federal sources amoun-
ted to $5.8 million, about 25 per cent of
the budget. In addition, Ann Arbor will
receive $362,000 in federal reimbur--
sement for federal Comprehensive
Employment and Training Act
(CETA) jobs in the city. A Republican
amendment reduced this year's CETA
allocation by $33,000 from last year.
Council principally altered Murray's
budget with the following items:
" an additional $225,000 for a special

street repair fund, part of an overall $2
million spent for streets this year;
" $50,000 for a fall leaf pickup
program;
* $50,000 in local matching funds for a
tornado warning system;
* $40,000 more for vehicles and
material for street patching crews;
" and $60,000 restored from a
previous Republican cut in Forestry
funding.
The street and crew funds are mostly
spent or committed. Murray's salary
was boosted by 6.5 per cent to $41,060.
Council Democrats opposed the fall
leaf pickup program, tornado warning
system, and an $18,000 gravel study.
They asked that the $74,600 from prior
year reserves remain in that reserve
fund to guard against future city debts.
The Democrats requested the following
items be added to the budget:
* $6,000 for part of a salary for the
city historian;
" $25,000 for a contingency fund (No
such fund currently exists.);
" $12,400 for additional street
sweeping.
All Democaratic proposals were
defeated, but the Democrats voted for
the budget.

EARNOVER 65OAMONTH
RIGHT T HROUGH YOUR,
SENIOR YEAR.
If you're a junior or a senior majoring in math, physics or
engineering, the Navy has a program you should know about.
It's called the Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate-
Collegiate Program (NUPOC-C for short) and if you qualify,
you can earn as much as $650 a month right through your
senior year. Then after 16 weeks of Officer Candidate School,
you'll receive an additional year of advanced technical
education. This would cost you thousands in a civilian school,
but in the Navy, we pay you. And at the end of the year of
training, you'll receive a $3,000 cash bonus.
It isn't easy. There are fewer than 400 openings and only
one of every six applicants will be selected. But if you make
it, you'll have qualified for an elite engineering training
program. With unequaled hands-on responsibility, a $24,000
salary in four years, and gilt-edged qualifications for jobs
in private industry should you decide to leave the Navy
later. (But we don't think you'll want to.)
Ask your placement officer to set up an interview with a
Navy representative when he visits the campus on Oct. 19 & 24,
or contact your Navy representative at 313-226-7789 (collect).
If you prefer, send your resume to the Navy Nuclear Officer
Program, Code 312-B537, 4015.Wilson Blvd., Arlington,
Va. 22203, and a Navy representative will contact you directly.
The NUPOC-Collegiate Program. It can do more than help
you finish college: it can lead to an exciting career opportunity.
