Leading the blind
They're singing the First-Day-of-School Blues in section 11 of
Sociology 100. Early yesterday morning, an unidentified Literary
College senior hijacked the discussion group by removing a sign an-
nouncing the class has been cancelled and setting himself up as the
teaching assistant. As a stunned group of 25 students, mostly fresh-
persons, looked on, the bearded senior announced that his section of
sociology was going to focus on the natural sciences. "We shall see
how protons spinning around and around point directly to the
meaninglessness of the world as seen by Kafka and Sartre," he in-
toned. "The cultural explosion of the Renaissance was very much like
the Big Bang theory of the creation of the universe." He then assigned
a host of supplementary reading including advanced physics texts, ob-
scure Lati philosophers, Moby Dick, and Cocktail Party ("con-
sidered by many to be the worst of T.S. Eliot's works"). Pre-Med
students were assured they would have an easier grading scale since
"they are not sociologically minded, and this material is harder for
them." Other students were told not to worry about the calculus in-
tegral on the board, or the short paper due Monday. The studen-
ts sat passively and copied each bit of misinformation as it was written
on the board, apparently resigned to the fact that this is college and
the world of academics works in strange and wonderful ways. After 15
minutes of perverse ramblings, the class, none the wise, was
The Odd Couple
In a city that thrives on political confrontation, at least two Univer-
sity students, from opposite ends of the political spectrum, were able
to peacefully coexist in a Georgetown University dorm room during
their stint with the University's Washington Internship Program this
summer. Yvonne McClenney, who ran unsuccessfully for Michigan
student Assembly (MSA), president under the People's Action
Coalition (PAC) banner last April was somehow paired with Jane
Moore, an MSA representative, and Student Alliance for Better
Representation (SABRA) party member. In the wake of April's
trou led MSA elections, there was little love lost between the opposing
parties. Further complicating the summer, McClenney's internship
was with the Democratic National Committee, while Moore worked
for the Republican National Committee. But other than a few conten-
tious conflicts over Sen. Edward Kennedy, Moore said the two got
along very well. "It was really a fun summer," she said, "she (Mc-
Clenney) was really an enjoyable roommmate."

Food service cuts to delay dining
By PATRICIA HAGEN Lynford Tubbs.

Longer lines and some confusion are
expected to mark the first attempt
today at weekend consolidation of food
service in University residence halls,
according to campus housing officials.
Beginning today, West Quad, Betsy
Barbour and Helen Newberry residents
will eat Saturday lunches and dinners
and Sunday dinners at South Quad ac-
cording to the plan approved in an
economy move by the University's
Board of Regents last winter.
Jordan will join the 1200 residents of
Markley for weekend meals and Alice
Lloyd residents will eas at Couzens. A
limited number of Hill-area residents
can get meal transfers to Stockwell,
said Housing Food Service Coordinator

Because of the home football game
scheduled for this afternoon, Housing
officials predicted that implementing
the new plan for the first time will be
even more complicated than on a
typical weekend.
"We are adjusting meal hours," Tub-
bs said, in order to accommodate
students who plan to attend the 1:30
TUBBS SAID he hopes extended ser-
ving hours and increased ,staffs will
make the first weekend of the plan go as
smoothly as possible. Aesidents should
note the serving times in each dorm.
The new plan is being implemented in
an effort to reduce board rates for
students, saii Associate Director of
Housing John Finn. With the food ser-
vice consolidation, Finn estimated,

there is a savings of $12 dollars per
resient which has been figured in the
rate schedule for this school year.
"(Cafeteria) lines may be a little
long," Finn said. But, "lines will be
open longer" to serve the larger volume
of students in each of the host halls.
At Markley and South Quad, Satur-
day lunch hours will be extended, but
dinner hours on Saturday and Sunday
will remain two hours long.
On home Saturdays the Markley
cafeteria will be open from 9:30 to 12:15
for lunch and 4:30 to 6:30 for dinner.
Sunday dinner is scheduled for 11:00
until 1 p.m.
A Markley cafeteria manager, Mary
Hill, said the 1500 students expected to
eat in the dorm this weekend should be
served smoothly "unless they all come
at once."

UP TO 2,000 students, 700 more than
usual, may eat in the South Quad dinign
rooms this weekend, accprding to
cafeteria manager Nathanfa 1 Jones.
"We're geared for it," he said.
Serving hours at South Quad are 10 to
12:30 for lunch on home football Satur-
days and 4:30 to 6:30 for dinner, as
usual. Sunday lunch lines are open from
11:30 to 1:30.
Finn said he is interested in seeing
how staff and students react to the first
.try at consolidation. He said he expects
some students to object to the incon-
venience, but, "we hope things will go
Following intense student protests,
the Regents rejected a request by the
Housing office to construct a separate
central dining hall for the Hill-area
dormitories last January.

costs. As a result, the city was not paid
for the services at all, and then was un-
derpaid until recently. Now the state
pays the city $500,000 a year.
Looking into Ann Arbor's future,
Murray said subsidized housing is one
method of counteracting the exclusion

of lower income people from Ann Arbor
due to escalating'housing costs. He said
the city's growth is finally slowing
down after years of rapid expansion,
which cannot be repeated due to the
physical limits imposed by outlying

Jonathan Marwil, assistant professor
in the humanities department of the
College of Engineering until last May,
filed a $1.1 million suit against the
University Board of Regents and three
staff members of the college last mon-
th. The suit asked that Marwil be gran-
ted preliminaryrelief,,which would
have allowed him to resume his position
pending trial.
A PRETRIAL conference is
scheduled for Tuesday. A date for the
trial has not yet been set.
Marwil alleges he was unfairly drop-
ped from the faculty without a tenure
review. In the suit he charges that his
rights to due process of law and
freedom of speech were violated in the
administrative decision not to grant
him a reappointment hearing.
Jerold Lax, Marwil's attorney, said
yesterday that Judge Philip Pratt's
ruling was "not really a surprise or
great disappointment."
He added that . requests for
preliminary relief are not granted as a
matter of course. Lax said Pratt based
his decision on the premise that if Mar-
wil wins the case, he will be compen-

Supporters of Marwil approached the

Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

"Ye that love the Lord hate evill...Take thou away from me
the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy
viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and
righteousness as a mighty stream!" Psalm 7:10 and Amos
5:23and 24
One may love the great hymns and music of the Church,
but If one does not "hate evil" it appears God does not ap-
preciate the music, and it is unacceptable!
"1 have thought of my life as an arrow shot out of a bow: For
a moment it is seen as it takes its flight across the landscape,
then drops Intorobscurity. Let me be a man of ONE BOOK,
THE BIBLE, and let me walk in its light for my own safety and
that of my fellow men, that when I drop out of sight into
obscurity I may be "Safe in The Arms of Jesus." - This is not
an accurate quote, but is based on a statement of John
In one respect it is suggested he was mistaken, for the light
his life reflected of The One Book has shined not for a
moment but through centuries and has been seen across a
very limited landscape not at all, but across the landscape of
most of the world. He, and "The people called Methodist".
'Loved The Lord, and hated evil" in obedience to the com-
mand of God. They were especially noted, and offensive to
many, for rebuking sin wherever they saw it - the sin of "any
want of conformity unto or transgression of The Law of
God." Often they suffered for it, but the reason they gave for
"giving offense" was that they must "deliver their own souls"
for if they did not warn men of God's wrath and curse to come

upon the unrepentant, God would require the blood of lost
souls at their hands. Read Ezekiel 3:17, etc., and chapters 18
and 33
"The heart in your bosom is a 'muffled drum' beating out a
march to the cemetery for you!" When they take you and me
to the cemetery for deposit, it is because our spirit has left
this "home of clay" and gone to Its "long home," and back to
GodgWho gave it. The Bible tells of two different kinds of
'long homes." One where "eye bath not seen, ear hath not
heard, neither hath entered the mind of man the things God
hath prepared for them that love Him." - a man's mind is not
capable of thinking of or imagining the great good, joy and
blessing of that home.
We mouth much about "The love of God" but it would be
well if we considered more "our love for God" and how and in
what manner it is manifested. Jesus Christ said that in order
that the world might know that He loved God, He obeyed Him
and did as He was commanded: "Arise, and let us go hencel"
He arose, andwenttomeetthemob, thecross, asmostof His
disciples fled.
The other "long home" is the "lake of fire" prepared for the
devil and his angels, for raging and unrepentant men and
nations, for "God is angry with the wicked every day' and
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that
forget God." Psalm 7:11 and Psalm 9:17. "it is appointed unto
men once to die, but after this the judgement." Hebrew 9:27.
The judgement, that appointment will tell the story, as the
hand-writing on the wall did in the 5th chapter of Daniel,
whether or not we are "weighed and found wanting."

Book rush is never pleasant.
But Ulrich's can make it better. Just hand your course list to oneof Ulrich's people,
and they'll get your books for you. While you're there, you can pick up
your other supplies, too. It won't cost you an arm and a leg, either. Give it a try.
