Turkey day
Foreign students and Americans with no Thanksgiving plans need
not miss out on the day's festivities thanks to a couple of programs
being run by the International Center. For $8, the Center will bus you
to Zehnder's in Frankenmuth for a chicken dinner (you can't have
everything). Center Program Director Ellen Kolovos says the food
can't be beat. The more, economically minded foreign students can
sign up to share some fowl with a local area family throughout the
center. Kolovos can accommodate up to 30 people in the vans to
Frankenmuth, and still has spaces. Bon appetit.
Fasting for a cause
Two local groups have adopted the age-old tactic of fasting to
dramatize their views on some current social issues. The Arbor
Alliance, an anti-nuclear organization, is sponsoring a dorm fast
tonight, with proceeds going to the group's efforts to publicize the
dangers of nuclear power. According to a spokeswoman, some 700
participants in East Quad, Alice Lloyd, Mosher-Jordan, and various
Inter Cooperative Council houses will skip dinner and give the money
they would have spent on food to the alliance. Tomorrow, the
Committee Concerned With World Hunger is staging a day-long fast
to dramatize the plight of the world's underfed. The group is also
asking participants to donate the cost of their meals to the
organization. For anti-nuclear, anti-hunger types, it promises to be a
long 48 hours.
Take Ten
The Regents, on Nov. 15, 1 68, urianimously approved a resolution
giving tenure to senior staff members of the Institute for Social
Research. The actiorr was intended to improve the recruiting of new
staff members for the institute and to clarify the "faculty
perogatives" open to the senior staff. Also that day, Yale University
announced it would admit undergraduate women the coming fall for
the first time in its history.


That telling Council look

Poring over the voluminous agendas
of City Council meetings gives even the
most ardent city government observer
few clues about the nature of the body's
deliberations or its legislators.
Council members' apparel tells a lot
about their partisan leanings. In fact,
quite often more accurate knowledge,
as to Council happenings, can be gained
by noting when certain members doff
their suit jackets or make that trek to
the coffee urn in apparent anticipation
of intense debates.

caucus is readily distinguished by the
consistent wearing of suits - usually
three-piece ensembles - by its mem-

Business suits are often considered to
be an expected trait of candidacies for

THE MOST obvious clue to whether a
substantive exchange will take place at
a Council meeting is a quick survey of
who, if anyone is absent. When Mayor
Louis Belcher and Democratic Coun-
cilman Ken Latta (Second Ward) went
to Tuebingen Germany this summer to
visit our sister city, sure bets could
have been made that no dramatic ac-
tion would take place during their ab-
More subtle hints can be detected by
observing the strategic points in the

members retreat to the council
workroom for a smokey respite. The no
smoking rule in the Council Chamber is

JUST AS a nicotine break is sym-
bolic of insubstantial debate, loading up
on bitter council coffee indicates either
that members are gearing up for a bat-
tle, or that they realize the long-winded
nature of many members will prolong
the discussion to marathon proportions.
Trowbridge occasionally opts for Dr.
Pepper instead.
These norms were altered last week,
when members could not seek refuge in
the work room because it was closed for
election preparation. Belcher tried the
door twice out of habit, and other mem-
bers had to restrain the usual chit chat
and stick to the novelesque agenda.
Around 10:30 or 11 p.m., the suit coats
mysteriously come off, and comments
are a bit more punchy. It is only in this
mood that Belcher speaks, of "clean
sludge" and the partisan exchanges
may take a jovial twist.

council on cable TV have tired of the
mundane deliberations and are spin-

Charles-Dead or Alive
Alain Tanner's first feature film put an almost non-existent Swiss cinema on the
international cine-mop. Charles De, an aging conformist, suddenly drops deep
out of life and emerges a mad-man, at least according to those around him.
Many directors can capture the significance of political thought; this witty,
lucid film shows that Tanner is one of the few who can capture its joy.

THE GENERAL (at 7:00)
Based on an actual Civil War adventure, this is considered to be Keaton's
masterpiece. He plays a engineer who fights the Union Army to get back his
beloved stolen train and girl, great chase scene.
THE GOLD RUSH (at 9:05)
The Tramp find bears harmless but nature more difficult to cope with in the
Yukon Country. This is Chaplin's most inventive comedy-with the Feast of
Shoes and Chicken visions.
