Big brother's watching
Last week an editorial appeared in the Daily calling for the CIA to
stop covert activities on American college campuses, particularly this
one. We're flattered it didn't go unnoticed. When one of our reporters
called the CIA this week, Coordinator for Academpic Relations Jim
King charged the editorial was "a really nasty one" written by an
"allegedly responsible journalist airing "his own vitrolic
prejudices." Keep up the good work Jim; we wouldn't want you to miss
anything.
Satisfaction for chocolate junkies
Students with an uncontrollable sweet tooth can now breath a sigh of
relief. ARA Food Services, which controls all candy machines on
campus, settled its five-week long employee strike last Friday, and
machines are once again bearing chocolate-covered goodies. Hugh
Erickson, a spokesman for ARA, said the company is working hard to
fill the machines quickly. "We're still playing catch-up, but by
Friday evening all machines will be filled."
Xmas spirit?
The Christmas rush in now officially underway, for it seenis that a
certain periodical has "laid bare" its annual yuletide campaign. The
Community Newscenter on S. University received yesterday a
shipment of 500 issues of the Christmas edition of Playboy magazine -
twice' the normal monthly order of the publication. The December
issue features TV's plastic sex symbol Farrah Fawcett-Majors on the
cover, and it appears that sexism will be a popular seasons greeting
again. "We are anticipating selling every copy," Newscenter
manager Sandra Guinness confided.
Take Ten
Despite President Johnson's decision to end the bombing of North
Vietnam, graduate students on Nov. 3, 1968 still faced the imminent
possibility of being drafted. Rackham Graduate School's assistant
dean commented, "'Things look bleak for the graduate school for the
winter term."

plastic
research
laboratory
By CAROL KOLETSKY
The University Plastic Research
Laboratory, formally dedicated Oct. 28,
aims at improving methods of
treatment and' reconstruction of
various parts of the body.
Under the direction of Dr. George
Cherry, two full-time and six part-time
faculty plastic surgeons and six.
residents will work to perfect
techniques of microsurgery and
stretching flaps of skin.
"THE USE OF skin flaps is essential
in repairing injured parts of the body,"
said Dr. William Grabb, head of plastic
surgery at University Hospital:
One of the laboratory's new
techniques involves the stretching of
skin through osmosis. Grabb explains
the process as similar to the way in
which a pregnant abdomen stretches.
A silicone bag containing salt tablets
can be implanted in the hollow of a leg
injured from a car accident, for
example. Osmosis draws fluideinto the
bag, causing the bag to expand. As the
bag expands, the skin stretches. -The
loose skin which has just been created
is then pulled over the wound.
ANOTHER TECHNIQUE the lab is
perfecting is called "delaying the flap."
Skin needs a certain amount of blood in
order to survive. Cutting off the blood
supply from several angles in the skin
allows blood to enter more ,profusely
into the'flap of skin that needs repair.
The laboratory will also study various
drugs that increase blood supply.
F. Roland Sargent, a University
alumnus and major financial
contributor to the new laboratory, was
on hand for the dedication. The lab is
located in Kresge II Research
Laboratory.
The 100th anniversary of teaching of i
architecture at the University was
celebrated in 1976.

The Ann Arbor Committee for
Human Rights in Latin America
(AACHR) will sponsor a three day
teach-in beginning November 7 to
publicize political repression and
U.S. involvement in Mexico.
The teach-in, entitled "Mexico:
Contours of Crisis," will feature
several prominent scholars and
activists from the Uniter States and
Mexico who will lecture on the
nature of the Mexican state, history
of the Revolution, and activities of
U.S. intelligence agencies in Mexico.
ACCORDING TO committee
member Howard Brick, the purpose
of the, three-day event is to "reveal
the extent of political repression in
Mexico and to show the historical
and continuing involvement of the
United States in Mexican affairs."
Speakers at the teach-in, which
will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Schorling
Auditorium in the School of
Education, will include Hector

The Michigan Daily-Friday, November 3, 1978-Page 3'
Mexican teach-in in As

Marroquin, a radcal student leader
who was accused of taking part in
terrorist activity in Mexico;
Jacques Medina, an attorney and
labor organizer; and Juan Jose-
Pena, founder of La Raza Unida
Party in New Mexico.
Marroquin visited Ann Arbor last
Spril when he was appealing for
political asylum. This was the
catalyst for the Committee's
decision to organize the teach-in on
economic, political, and social
conditions within Mexico.
The AACHR was formed in August
1976, and according to Brick, its
intention is to aid Latin America
political prisoners and to oppose
U.S. support of oppressive Latin
regimes. The group was involved in
the Teach-in or Terror in Latin
America in November 1976, which
brought Isabel Allende, the daughter
of Salvadore Allende, to Rackham
Lecture Hall for several public
appearances.
