SOC:
By BETSY MANN
The name of the newly-formed
Student Organizing Committee (SOC),
a party pushing its ticket in tomorrow's
Literature, Science and the Arts
Student Government (LSA-SG)
elections sounds familiar to those
involved in campus politics since the

second-hand

name

group has borrowed its handle from a
party formerly active in the, Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA), according to
Debra Goodman, a member of the
original SOC.
Goodman said she objects to the
revival of the name, because the
students now calling themselves'SOC
do not have anything to do with the

Nursing Who's Who
Twenty-seven students at the University School of Nursing have
been selected to appear in the 1978-79 edition of who's Who Among
Students in American Universities and Colleges. They join a group of
the country's campus leaders selected from more than 1,000 colleges
in the United States and several foreign countries. Campus
nominating committees and editor of the annual directory, which has
been published since 1934, have included the names of these students
based on their academic achievements, service to the community,
leadership in extra-curricular activities, and future potential.

Antonelli, Thomas James Bissonnette, Mary Elizabeth Brock, Judith

Take Ten
On Nov. 19, 1968, the Ann Arbor Human Relations Commission
(HRC) agreed to the establishment of a black theater group for the
city and planned to ask City Council to release $10,000 from the HRC
budget to establish the group for a six month trial period. Also that
day, in an attempt to "take pressure off winter term registration," the
University set up early registration in the basement of the LSA
building. *

Jimmy Peanuts
Even wonder if there was something evil behind President Carter's
smile? According to a 13-page memorandum compiled by the White

House Office of Media Liaison, Jimmy stole "a penny from the
collection plate at church when he was 5 years old." But-worse than
that, he shot his sister Gloria in the rear end with a BB gun - after she
threw a wrench at him. Also revealed by the memorandum were the
President's allergies: hops, beans, and Swiss cheese. His first car was
a brand new 1948 Studebaker. One final tidbit: Carter does not snore.
Caught in the act
Two Purdue University students will soon become experts on the Old
Oaken Bucket, Indiana's answer to Michigan's B'rown Jug. The
bucket has been encased in glass in the lobby of the Indiana University
Memorial Union for the past two years and will again be awarded to
the winner of the Purdue-Indiana game Saturday. However, Paul
Nevill and Ed Gedeon decided to grab the bucket a few weeks early.
They smashed the glass with a brick but were nabbed by a custodian
and security guard before they could escape. A Monroe Superior Court
Judge ordered the two to co-author a paper on the bucket's history,
spend 30 hours in public service and pay $30.
New world records
Gary Nuhroke of New York City set a new record for climbing the

the time. Muhroke's record of 12 minutes was recorded in the 1979

Downtown bus riders
to get waiting room

defunct organization and the ideals it
represented.
THE FORMER student government
representative charged the new group
with attempting to ride on her party's
hard work and favorable reputation to
garner votes.
Mike Spirnak, founder of the present
SOC, responded he chose that title for
his new party because "we tried seeing
what would advertise well, and SOC
sounded good."
Party members figured "the old
SOC's popularity was dead," Spirnak
said, and therefore saw, no harm in
adopting the old name.
SOME FEEL the controversy arose
from misunderstanding and
mismanagement on the part of the new
party. "Perhaps we should have
checked with the old members to see
how they felt," conceded SOC

candidate Rick Shahin. "But we didn't
think it would be a controversy because
the old SOC party is defunct.
Goodman questioned why Spirnak, a
former Bullshit party member, decided
to form a new party at all. "If he's
opposed to the Bullshit party, he
shouldn't use bullshit tactics to get
elected this term," she declared.
Spirnak captured a seat on LSA-SG
last term after campaigning on the
Bullshit ticket, but he said he "doesn't
agree with their politics anymore."
Doug Steinberg, a current Bullshit
candidate, offered his own explanation
for Spirnak's action. "Mike's trying to
get away from the irresponsibility
associated with the Bullshit party,"
Steinberg stated. "The SOC name
better represents his responsible
attitude and what he wants to
accomplish in student government."

By JEFFREY WOLFF
Starting with the first of the year,
those who ride city buses in the down-
town area will finally get a long sought
after waiting room as a refugee from
the elements.
Wednesday night the Ann Arbor
Transportation Authority (AATA)
board signed a contract for a three-and-
a-half year lease starting in January on
the main floor of the Benz Building at
Fourth and William Streets.
AATA PLANNING Coordinator Tom
Hackley expects "we'll open the
passenger waiting room then (Jan. 1),
although construction of toilet facility
and other minor alterations may still be
going on." Hackley said the hours for
the waiting room haven't yet been set,,
but he "has a sense" it will be open 8
a.m. to 9 p.m. every day but Sunday.
For the approximately $170,000 tax-
payers will be paying over the next
three years they will receive 500 sq. ft.
of space, only 850 of which will go for a

passenger waiting room, toilets, a con-
cession area, and an information desk.
The other 3650 sq. ft. will be converted
for AATA offices and storage and there
is a possibility AATA will rent out space
to new tenants.
Willie Horton, a board member who
said Wednesday's decision came after a
long history of failure due to money
problems, said he considered the Benz
Building "a little more expensive than
hoped. And it's not the ideal site, but at
least it's something."
Fourth and William has been the
main transfer point and according to
AATA Director Bob Works, "the hub
around which our whole system is
structured." Consequently, the Benz
Building site will be designed to ac-
commodate the 2,500-3,500 people whom
AATA estimates board and leave buses
there. The transportation group reports
the shelter should comfortably handle
85 people with a somewhat higher
"crush capacity."
