taken near Stockwell dorm in
August, 1964. Crew-cuts over
checked shirts, flips over

Rinkle, who works with Student
Services and Student

Chairman of the Board for
Student Publications, weren't
going for nostalgia in the cover.
"I don't think we though of it as
an old shot," Rinkle said, "w
just thought of it as an interesting
shot." It says 1978-79 in the
corner, and we hope all thew
names inside are current.

Take Ten
On November 14, 1968, the now-defunct Student Government
Couheil (SGC) voted to send a letter to the LSA Curriculum Committee
demanding that the Literary College faculty abolish the college's
language and distribution requirements. SGC members supported a
motion stating that students should have control over the academic
lives and that compulsion is the "least effective" method for
education. Also that day AFSCME, the campus' largest union, ratified
a contract with the University for a total package in excess of $2

government report, saying the sale of
"lemons" by used car dealers in a
major consumer abuse, called
yesterday for a requirement that
prospective buyers be told what's likely
to fall apart first.
The Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) staff, in a 564-page report
concluding five years of investigation
and hearings, said sales of defective
used cars affect "the basic safety or
utility of the most expensive item
consumers will ever buy."
THE STAFF proposed that vehicles
on used car lots be required to carry a
notice revealing any defects. The
proposal will have to be adopted by the
five-member commission before it
becomes law. After that, legal
challenges by the industry are likely.
Industry groups, which opposed the
requirement at the hearings, attacked
the report. They said the requirement
would be inflationary, harmful to their
industry and of dubious legality.
The proposed requirement would
make used car dealers put the notices
on windows of the 10.5 million vehicles
sold annually. The notices would say

FTC staff attorney Bernard Phillips,
who helped draw up the report, said
that under the regulation, dealers "can
sell the worrjt lemon they can find. They
just have to disclose that."
The regulation would not apply car

staff said, produce fewer unhappy
customers than those by dealers.

Murder by dart
East Quad's Third Annual Killer Contest got underway less than
36 hours ago, and already several of the contestants have been
knocked off. The 166 players, who each tote around plastic darts and
dartguns, are to assassinate their respective victims, and then
assassinate their victim's victim, etc. The first quaddie to be
"wasted" was freshman Bob Zinamon, who was shot by his neighbor
across the hall, John Masterson, at 8:50 yesterday morning. Zinamon
was reportedly putting on his socks when he was gunned down. "I
never knew I would play With death at 8:30 in the morning," Zinamon
said. The freshman's murder'was followed quickly by those of Jim
Hannaford and Scott Kern, who killed each other at 9:02.
Undercover prankster
That antiquated antic, the panty raid, has taken a new twist at the
University of Illinois. Campus police are searching for a bearded man
who has been sneakil g into dorm rooms, trying to cut the underwear
off sleeninz male undergraduates. Four incidents have been reported


Where you live and where
you drive will determine the
kind of problems you could
If you drive on gravel
roads or roads with a gravel
shoulder, you can avoid nicks
and scratches by increasing
the distance between your
car and the car in front of
you. Tires, as you probably
know, can pick up small
stones and "fling" them out
at great velocity. If you're too
close to the car ahead, the
sharp stones will hit .your
grillwork and fenders very
hard. Increase the distance,
and the stones lose their.
velocity and fall back to the
ground before your car hits
In areas of the country
where the sun is very strong,
some color change may
occur over time unless you
protect your car from direct
sun. Parking in the shade is a
good idea, and using a garage
or some form of carport will
help to minimize the sun's
effect not only on the paint,
but on the interior trim, as

Damage from industrial
pollution is a problem in a
few places. You can help pro-
tect your car's finish from
these pollutants by keeping
your car in a garage.
Road salt is extremely
corrosive and can literally eat
through paint and metal. So
if you live in an area where
salt is used extensively, wash
your car frequently. Don't
forget to rinse the underside
of the car, too, where salt
tends to collect. If you take it
to a commercial car wash,
remember, if they use recy-
cled water, it may contain
We do recommend that you
wax your car regularly. Use a
wax that is also a cleaner or
use a separate cleaner to
remove accumulated dirt and
salt. The wax will serve as a
protective coating that can
help to preserve the finish._
But no matter what you
(k0 to protect your cars finish,
some nicks and scratches are
unavoidable. For the sake of
your car's appearance and-to
avoid rust problems, buy
some touch-up paint from
your GM dealer or a local
SuDilier. It comes in small

it yourself in a minute or two.
While the paint never looks
as good as when the car was
new, the touched-up spot will
look better than a nick, and
the metal will be protected
from exposure.
Our goal at GM is to
paint cars so that they look
just great and really keep
their looks. And we are try-
ing to do so in a way that is
energy-efficient, environ-
mentally sound, and not
harmful to the health of the
people who do the painting.
It's a tall order, but GM can
do it. We're doing it now.
