Broken dreams, v,..

broken trays
THE GREAT TRASH-NEWS event of the summer was
that stunning divorce between Lee Majors and his sunny
wife Farrah Fawcett. Ah, we all sang and danced hours
on end to think the poster queen was once again an
eligible lass, but now it turns out the poor woman is an
absolute wreck. Here's news that trickled in from Egypt
this week concerning Farrah and a publicity cocktail
party thrown in her honor. She opened a buffet and tried
to carry a small dish of canapes down a flight of stairs
only to tumble and land upon the floor, leaving hors
d'oeuvres scattered about her like so many wasted,
broken men with pining hearts. That woman .:early
needs a husband, if only to have someone to clean up
after her.
You take my punk away
POSING FOR US Magazine this week wearing nothing
but an electric guitar to protect our shame and his is
Rex Smith. Rex, you know, is the latest teenaged heart-
throb following in the delicate, androgynous footsteps of
dudes like Lief Garrett and Shaun Cassidy. This cuddly-
pup labored in obscurity most of his 24 years before
busting onto the scene with that fine song, "You Take
My Breath Away," and now his mug is all over those
magazines aimed at post-pubescent girls. In leaner years,
said to tell, Rex used to be a punk rocker, complete
with a weird buzz haircut and everything. The times can
change a fellow, of course, and Rex has given up smoking,
"but," he warns cryptically, "I'm not as safe as milk."u

KW*AT DID YOU DO SUNDAY NIGHT? Cheryl Tiegs, left, got together with her buddies Vitas
A rulaitis, Ilie Nastase, and Martina Navratilova to dance the night away at New York's Studio 54
co. Only real swell folks are allowed in there, and they do all sorts of mad, impetuous things
sowe can read about them in our newspapers. Sunday, for instance, Nastase began paying a bit,
,oo much attention to someone else's girlfriend, and an old time ugly brawl erupted. Gerulaitis,
;dys the New York Post, stepped into break things up. Photogenic Tiegs and unphotogenic
a vratilova stood by and held coats or something.
Linda says, 'Don't toot'
POSSESSION is in Linda Blair's blood, obviously. Years back remember how she starred as
Reagan, the demonically possessed little girl in The Exorcist, and now, of course, she's been
convicted of conspiracy to possess cocaine. What a lot of trouble these famous people have. Blair,
yet 20,lnust become a crusader against drug abuse as part of the termsof her probation. U.S.
District Judge Howell W. Melton ordered the actress to make at least four public appearances
during each of three years "to convince and help other young people to avoid drugs."

SANDY DUNCAN will do damned near anything to get herself into the
newspaper, and that includes perching on her dressing room couch and
making like a crow. It's all for publicity, you ?see, because Sandy, whom
you haven't heard of in years, right?, is starring in a production of Peter
Pan on Broadway that opened just the other night. It seems the story of
the boy who'd never grow old hasn't been on Broadway in 25 years, and
it's all big news in New York City. Studio 54 is there, too.

Raquel, you bitch!

HA HA HA. Chevy Chase sure is cute and fun
he? You'll remember how he got to be such a
star that he left Saturday Night Live in order to
a superstar, and, well, he seems to have made i
This is Be~nji, noted cur, giving Chevy a kiss on
for the never-blinking camera as the two prom(
upcoming movie Oh Heavenly Dog. As the wor

Berlin and Paris.

HEY, WHAT'S THIS over here where
the sleazy tabloids used to be? But it's
the new, full color National Enquirer
newspaper, guardian of truth and
defender of the public's right to know.
While housewives everywhere cheer to
the Enquirer's bold transition from drab
tones of gray to the bright and pastoral
colors of nature, let's see what's really
been going on in the world. Here's a cute
babi picture, and, oh, a couple of cute
animal pictures, and an attractive
AP Photo headline, "Terror Attack by 9 Million
Enraged Bees." A UFO story, "The In-
ny, isn't credible 'Giraffe Women' of Burma,"
big, big and another eye-opening health-news
becomeastory, this one entitled "You Feel Pain
t at last. Less in the Morning." Can't beat all this
1the ear for interest, eh?, but there's more:
rote their "evGrfi:M Faan Fuy
ld holds Teenage Days'. "Ann-Margaret: How I
London, Overcame the Accident That Smashed
My Face."
The'tastiest item this week, though, is
an expose on the "rude, crude" antics of
Raquel Welch, 39, on the set of her latest
film, The Legend of Walks Far Woman.
Says here that she's been swearing like
a Vassar graduate, slapping her direc-
tor, and driving cast and crew members

permanently off the set with her
petulant behavior. The TV movie, being
filmed on location in Montana, is 11 days,
behind schedule now, say "insiders,"
and one of the film's producers has war-
ned Raquel "to cool it or else." Perhaps
if she were to fall down while carrying
canapes everyone would feel sorry for

ANICE, HEALTHY set of teeth has our new Miss
America, Cheryl Prewitt, 22, crowped Saturday night
the fairest lass in all the land. Just like Bob Dylati,
Cheryl is a born-again Christian, and she plans to offer
a stiff 10 per cent of her winnings to God. The Miss
America crown comes with a $20,000 career scholar-
ship plus more money than you could shake a stick at
for professional appearances. This means big bucks
for God, and all because of two "miracles" in Cheryl's
life: Winning the beauty pageant is one, and the other
is her recovery from a crippling auto accident at age
11. She claims her crushed and shortened leg grew
back to normal in a matter of moments during a
Pbristian Bible meeting, and now, just as regular as
tau please, she can walk along Park Ave. in New
Nork City,as seen here.

med Ali, whose moves in the boxing ring are equalled
only by his moves around the suppertable, has hung up
the gloves once again to become a full-time celebrity.
The smilin' heavyweight champ is seen here with wife
Veronica at the "Tribute to Ali" fete in Inglewood, Ca.,
last Thursday night. If you haven't had enough of The
Greatest, he will be in the Ann Arbor area later this fall
dispensing wisdom and spreading good cheer.

We can't,
afford to
waste it.

Imagine how easy it.would be to access the computer from your
dorm room or apartment. No more walking, or 'driving, to the
computer center and waiting in line to use one of the terminals. Well,
you don't have to walk and wait anymore. Now you can rent a
terminal for as low as $51 /mo. and be able to use any computer with
a time-sharing system (like U of M or EMU), just by adding an
acoustic modem and your own telephone. It's that simple.
We, at CompuMart, have, been selling terminals for more than 7
years. We buy in large quantities, so we can save you money,
whether you are buying or leasing. Come see our complete line of
terminals in our Ann Arbor store. Test each one for yourself. As you
can see below, we offer a wide variety of quality terminals at low
monthly lease rates for as little as a month or as long as 5 years. You
can even form a group and share the monthly expenses.
Our monthly depot service gives you 48-hour service and covers
parts and labor. If youdecide to buy, you can apply 50% of your lease
money towards the purchase price. However, only 50% of the retail
price can be paid in this manner.
CompuMart offers much more than terminals, though. We have all.
the major Micro-computers including Apple, PET, Sorcerer, AIM and
KIM. We stock peripherals, supplies and computer-related books
and magazines, too. So, if you need a terminal or you're interested in
computers, stop by our store. We're open Tues.-Fri. from 11 to 7
and Saturday from 10 to 5 and we're located at 1250 N. Main
in Ann Arbor (1 mile north of Huron).
A Teletype Classic ...


No tes from all over
NOT DEAD YET. As lesser men succumb to the ravages of disease and accident,
Col. Harland Sanders lives on, this week celebrating his 89th birthday. The inde-
fatigable symbol behind the Kentucky Fried Chicken outfit, Sanders gnawed on
a corned beef sandwich at last Saturday's party. It doesn't say here if the guest
of honor spilled hi~s hors d'oeuvres.
NOTED SPOUSE. You'll want to know all about the doings of Priscilla Presley,
Iecause, after all, she's the ex-wife of the late, great Elvis Presley, and thus
everything she does for the rest of her life will be very, very interesting. "I want
to keep a low profile because I like my privacy," said Priscilla as she announced
{er three year contract with the Wella cosmetics Corporation. Her contract
,requires her to pose for magazine ads and appear in commercials and on teevee
commercials. But Priscilla, why such a low profile? "My daughter comes first.
I'm trying to give Lisa as normal a childhood as possible. I'm trying to show her
what's real and what's unreal." Ah, we see.
