34 Legionnaires' casessuspected

CITY INSPECTORS and officials of
the Atlanta-based Center for Disease
Control were pressing the search for
more cases, Bogner said. Businessmen
said air-conditioning systems and
water supplies were being checked for
evidence of bacteria that causes the

Legionnaires' disease is often
mistaken for pneumonia, doctors say.
It is characterized by muscular aches,
diarrhea, chest pains and high fever.
Koch noted that 40 to 60 people die
each week in the city from pneumonia.
He cautioned that many suspected vic-
tims of Legionnaires' disease may ac-

tually have pneumonia.
The disease first struck and got its
name in 1976, when 29 people who at-
tended an American Legion convention
in Philadelphia died and scores fell ill.
About 10 to 15 per cent of its victims die.
There had been only one confirmed
death due to Legionnaires' disease in
the city prior to the current outbreak.

Students fight meal consolidation

residential spaces.
The dining facility would be on the
side of Mosher-Jordan which faces
Palmer field and would occupy
about 28,500 square feet of land.
ALTHOUGH HOUSING officials are
expecting the request to be honored and
have listed a target date of fall 1981,
they have also said consolidation will
occur with or without the HUD grant. If
the grant does not come through, the
cost of consolidation-expected to top
$3 million-will be passed on to studen-
At a meeting in a Markley room
yesterday afternoon, members of SUDS
voiced numerous reasons for their op-
position to a consolidated food service.
One of their major concerns is the loss
of "aihealty sense of dorm unity and
With over 2,000 students from four
dorms eating at one facility, SUDS
members fear residents who are
already exposed to the general deper-
sonalization of living-in dorms will be
further deprived of the feeling of
"present community" found in dorm
"I LIKE EATING in my dorm in
Mosher-Jordan," said resident advisor

Warren Thornthwaite. "It's like home.
Eating in another place like Markley. .
. it's a lot more impersonal, it feels a lot
more like a process," he said.
Others spoke of the harm con-
solidation would do to the strength of
the Pilot Progam at Alice Lloyd, a
program which strives for a feeling of
unity. "If they have to shove them
together with 2,000 other people at
meals, that destroys all sense of com-
munity," Aronson said.
Members of SUDS also have ad-
dressed the problems that walking to a
consolidated food service would cause
in terms of wasted time, increased
susceptibility to crime, and the loss of
student kitchen jobs.
Increased , energy conservation,
another stated goal of the Housing Of-
fice, is an area where student money
should increasingly directed, say
members of SUDS. "It seems a silly
waste that people here have to leave
their windows open in the winter
because of the heat," explained one
SUDS member.
SUDS plans to give a presentation at
the next Regents' meeting, asking them

to reconsider their approval of the
Housing Office's plans.
"It's like they (housing officials) are
not listening to the building directors,
the task force, or us either," com-
plained Thornthwaite. "They are
saying, 'Well, in the long run you're
going to thank us for it. "
No conspiracy
in JFK death
(continued from Page 5)
The expert testimony disputes
theories that some shots came from the
side of the presidential motorcade or in
front of Kennedy, particularly from the
grassy knoll to his right.
It supports the commission's con-
clusion that Oswald killed Kennedy
alone, firing three shots-one of which
missed-from a sixth-floor window
behind Kennedy.
Baden, raising a new controversy,
said all nine experts agree the second
bullet entered Kennedy's scalp four in-
ches higher than reported by a trio of
doctors who conducted the original

holiday from reality in the United
States which started during the post-
War period, and went all through the
fifties. Everyone was thinking affluen-
ce, no one was thinking oil boycott. It
just looked like there was going to be a
bigger, shinier carcoming out every
year, and that was no war to go away
and fight, and we, as middle class kids
going off to college, were able to have a
very uncomplicated kind of fun, without
guilt, without, 'Gee, I really ought to be
out there marching,' or 'I really ought
to be out there saving whales,' or
something like that. Who thought about
whales, you know? There were no
If the racial and sexual undercurren-
ts of Miller's Lampoon writings oc-
casionally surface in Animal House,
they never supercede the movie's self-
consciously nostalgic attitude about a
particular sort of fun. Miller and his
writing cohorts "wanted to show this in
its pure form, this kind of lifestyle: a
place, a time, and a set of characters,

YET WHAT OF those years at the
Lampoon, where the outward
displaying of prejudices seemed the or-
der of the day? "I doubt if anything's
ever been in the Lampoon that isn't in
everybody's unconscious somewhere,"
claims Miller. "The collective racists
American unconscious, the collective
sexist American unconscious-the
point is to make such fun of these things
that they can't stand. You can kill a
thing with humor."
One example of outright comedic
murder was "All In De Fambly," an
outrageous parody of "All In the
Family" that was simultaneously a
parody of white racism. According to
Miller, blacks would read something'
like "All In De Fambly" and "think it's
real funny, because it's not about black
people, it's about white people. And
when I do a thing that seems sexist, it's
really a piece about men." True, but I
doubt the John Birch Society will be
