Despite widely circulating rumors, a huge gorilla is not about to
make Ann Arbor his new home. A sign affixed to a cage-like structure
on the first floor of the Michigan Union claimed that the animal was
being brought to the University as part of a "continuing effort to im-
prove student faculty relations." Actually this new construction will
be a universal automatic money machine. The computer system will
be hooked up to all area finacnial institutions allovying students with
accounts at any bank to complete transactions. The machine will be
installed Friday and Ann Arbor Bank officials expect a brief testing
period before they open for business. A caged animal might be in-
teresting to watch but students seem to agree an opportunity to cash
checks without lines and hassles is infinitely better.
High as a kite
Western. Michigan University, apparently having given up its bid to
match intrastate rivals Michigan and Michigan State's football spec-
tacles, has scheduled a different kind of sports extravaganza for next
Saturday-a kite flying contest. A rugby game, hot air balloons,
t" frisbee competition and skydiving also highlight the festivities at
"Kite Flite IV", an all-day outdoor bash sponsored by Western
Michigan University's student radio station. First prize in the contest
will go to the highest flying kite of the day. Beer will be sold to patrons
who wish to compete for the prize themselves.
Let your fingers do the walking
Collaborationcan often be an asset in research and a new com-
puterized information storage and retrieval system will help Univer-
sity researchers in making these key connections. SCRIPT, a system
developed at Stanford University was purchased by the Division of
Research and Development Administration (DRDA). The com-
puterized system will house 2,000 profiles of faculty, primary resear-
chers and technical experts at all three University campuses. The files
will hold faculty member's research objectives, two recent
publications, campus mailing address and phone number. Key words
will link the person making an inquiry with specialists in the relevant
areas. Information will only be a button press away.

' Birth control
It's Margaret Sanger week. If you're the Pope and/or a virgin that
name probably doesn't mean much to you - Sanger was a pioneer in
birth control and founder of the Planned Parenthood Federation.
Governor Milliken has declared September 9-15 Margaret Sanger
week in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of
Sanger, who believed that every child should be born wanted.
Although there are no special activitied planned in Ann Arbor this
week, the local Planned Parenthood is looking for people who would
like to give an oral history of Sanger. It is believed Sanger passed
through Ann Arbor around the turn of the century.. . Anyone with in-
formation should contact the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood.
The naked truth
Everyone is striking these days - even the nation's most striking
people. Nude models for art classes in Boston are threatening to strike
due to low pay, cold stools and studios which are too cold for their un-
protected anatomies. "Art models have been ignored for too long,"
complained model Randy Jansen. ".We're tired of being treated like
objects. We are professionals and we demand respect." They are also
demanding a pay increase of $2 an hour over the $4 they now receive.
Models who pose full time have complained that they do not make
enough to live on despite the savings on clothing expenses.
Sniffing out the answer
What some people won't do for medical science. Twenty-five
residents of Vancouver, Canada will begin eating beans next year as
part of an experiment designed to find a way to take the toot out of the
round vegetables. Dr. Brent Skura, the head researcher behind the
project, said beans are high in protein, cheap, and easy-to-grow. He
added, however, that he didn't think beans would ever become popular
until someone could find a way to eliminate the classical gas. The
volunteers will get $25 a day for their efforts, which will include eating
