When a sports star is born, it takes some time to establish a
proper nickname. But after only minor confusion more than 100.000
University football fans were quickly able to devise a unique chant for
the team's new kicker Ali Haji-Sheikh during yesterday's game. A
walkon this season, the fans were amused by Haji-Sheikh's unfamiliar
name, and recognized instant gimmick potential when it was announ-
ced. On his second kickoff they were ready-although unorganized.
When number six appeared on the field the cry for "Sheikh-Sheikh-
Sheikh" rose from the student section surrounding the north end zone,
while around the corner, at the 20-yard line, the crowd called out for
"Haji-Haji-Haji." But within moments, both monickers were discar-
ded and the crowd unanimously dubbed the star kicker "Ali-Ali-Ali.
Urn vs. em
A recent.edition of the "Eastern Echo" from Eastern Michigan
University in Ypsilanti carries an essay by an editor, Kevin Wilson,
addressing his school's "image problem." Not only does Ypsilanti
sound "like the utterance of a small, pesky mutt" when mispronoun-
ced, says Wilson, but EMU finds itself identified with the emu, a rare
bird incapable of flight that's "after all, rather stupid." Added to those
problems, says Wilson, is the "Ypsitucky" nickname for the place
which originates from the influx of southern auto workers in the area,
lending a hillbilly notarity to EMU. "The great maize and blue mon-
stet up the street," however, "has no image problem," he writes.
Why? Because the big U. is simply "a concept (much in the same vein
as a block of granite buried in a lawn is conceptual art--o(interest to
few, meaning to none)." While he's entitled to his opinion, we'd like to
point out that the University is lots more meaningful than granite art.

Shah's son at college
The 18-year-old son of the exiled Shah of Iran was to be among
450 freshmen entering Williams College yesterday, according to a
Williams spokesman. Princ Reca Pahlavi, who has spent the past
year in Lubbock, Texas, was one of three overseas applicants accep-
ted as full-time students. Pahlavi spent the last year training to fly
fighter jets with the U.S. Air Force. Security measures at the small
Massachusetts school were expected to guarantee the prince's safety,
the spokesman said.
Tributes to Mao subdued
Today is the third anniver-
sary of the death of Chairman
Mao Tse-tung, the leader of the
1949 Chinese revolution and then
of Communist China for 27 years.
But China's press used its back
pages to pay subdued tribute to
the "great helmsman" once wor-
shipped like a god. A Chinese
foreign ministry spokesman said
he knew of no official observan-
ces of the anniversary and there
have been no spontaneous out-
bursts of grief for Mao among the
Peking general public. Less than
a month after his death, China's
present leaders won a showdown .

A California promoter was foiled several times this summer as
he tried to find a place to recreate the atmosphere of the original
Woodstock festival of a decade ago, which drew hundreds of thousan-
ds to a weekend celebration in upstate New York and became a sym-
bol of the 1960s. But yesterday, Richard Nader reported that Wood-
stock UI was underway smootly at Yaphank, N.Y. after a permit was
issued by local officials to admit 25,000 people. The event, at the 200-
acre Parr Meadows Race Track, was to last through the day yester-
day. Scheduled were original Woodstock stars Stephen Stills, Leslie
West, Johnny Winter, John Sebastian and Canned Heat.
The tipsy generation
When Joyce Winner of Clinton, Montana popped the top on a
Diet Pepsi in Missoula last week and took a sip, she was treated to the
taste of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The can was clearly marked "Diet
Pepsi," carried the surgeon general's warning about saccharin and a
boast that the contents contained only one calorie. The manager of the
Pabst plant in Los Angeles called it a simple mistake. Cans for Pepsi
and Pabst are made by the same company and they're both red, white
ahd blue. Cheers
