Neither a sweet young damsel in distress nor millions of dollars in
cold cash were the cause of Wednesday's high noon brawl in front of
the State Theater. At stake, instead, were a few innocent marijuana
cigarettes. Ann Arbor Police reported yesterday that the fight bet-
ween three "piobably good friends", resulted when the joints were
stolen from one of the participants. The man who was ripped-off found
a friend and went after the two thieves. The pair was cornered
in front of the State Theater, as reported in yesterday's Daily,
and the skirmish ensued. The friend of the victim apparently got the
worst end of the deal. Police said he was stabbed severely on both ar-
ms and was taken to University Hospital. The brawlers refused to
divulge their names and no money was involved in the marijuana"ex-
change, police reported.
The horses which helped make Ed McMahon famous for TV com-
mercials; the Clydesdales, are coming to Ann Arbor. The horses are
currently on a national tour and will be in the area for the Slippery
Rock-Shippensburg State football game at Michigan Stadium on
Saturday, Sept. 29. They are scheduled to arrive in town Sept. 23 and
will be staying in a Budweiser-built tent at Ferry Field between Yost
Ice Arena and Fisher Stadium until Sept. 30. Joe Dalto, area
distributor for "the king of beers" and, you guessed it, Don Canham
collaborated to bring them here. The team of eight horses will be out-
side the gate at Michigan Stadium during the game. But Mike
Palmisano of the University's Athletic Department says they will not
venture onto the field for obvious reasons. Palmisano said there will
bera public display set up and seeing the one-ton horses should be fun
for the entire family.

The results are finally in, the news you've all been waiting for! The
September issue of McCall's magazine features,a lengthy story on co-
ed dorms. Data for the story was collected from a number of schools,
including the University. The results show that: 1) 94.5 per cent of
parents with children living in co-ed dorms did not object to the
arrangement, and 2) fewer than seven per cent of the students sur-
veyed chose co-ed living "to improve my sex life." Nearly 50 per cent
of the students said they chose co-ed dorms because "they're frien-
dlier places to live." Scholarly research has its place in the scheme of
things, but somehow these findings don't seem too surprising.
Inflation is hitting everywhere these days-including the Vatican.
And the servants of God are mad as hell and they're not going to take it
anymore. Pope John Paul has ordered an inquiry into complaints by
Vatican employees of low wages, a Vatican spokesman said yester-
day. Employees are collecting signatures for a letter complaining that
their basic salaries have remained the same since 1969, and that cost-
of-living increases, given at six-month intervals, lag behind the in-
flation rate. Current Vatican salaries range from $365 to $610 a month,
although employees receive free medical treatment, reduced prices in
Vatican stores, and do not pay Italian income tax. The protest was
evidently set off by increases in rent following the Vatican's decision
to enforce a new rent law, recently passed by the Italian government.
ROME (AP)-Hundreds of after-
shocks rumbled up and down central
Italy yesterday, echoes of a sharp
quake that killed five persons and left
more than 1,000 homeless as it shook
the peninsula from Pisa's Leaning
Tower in Naples' broad bay.
The Wednesday night earthquake
leveled stone houses and medieval
churches in the Umbrian hills north of
Rome, rattled palaces and basilicas in
the capital, and sent thousands of
terrified Italians pouring into the
Panicky circus elephants smashed
their way out of their pens in Perugia,
near the center of the tremor.
All five deaths occurred in villages
around Norcia, 70 miles north of Rome.
A collapsing house killed three mem-
bers of one family in San Marco, and
two persons were crushed to death by
falling debris in Chiavano.
Rescue officials said they believed
the death toll would go no higher; but
workers continued to dig through rub-
ble yesterday searching for anyone who
might still be trapped.
After preliminary checks, art and
restoration experts repbrted no
significant damage to such monuments
as the Leaning Tower, the Colosseu, the
Roman Forum, St. Peter's Basilica,
and other ancient buildings in Rome
and the Vatican.
But near Spoleto a richly frescoed
16th century church associated with a
Madonna miracle collapsed. The oc-
tagonal building, the Church of Our
Lady of the Snow, stood at 3,000 feet and
was decorated with frescoes by the
noted Angelucci brothers. It was dedic-
ted to the miraculous survival of a local
resident said to have been buried for
three days under an avalanche.
The walls of the Basilica of St.
Benedict cracked open in nearby Nor-
cia, a medieval town that was virtually

You kept them up late last night didn't you? And
now they don't feel so good.
You should put them into a pair of Rockports.
Rockports are your feet's idea of a good shoe. Com-
fortable. Very, very comfortable. Because we don't make
men's and women's shoes to fit certain price ranges. We
make them to fit feet. We're funny that way.
For example, our shoes are stitched by hand: Be-
cause even the best machines can't stitch as well as people.
And the sole isn't one big hunk of crepe.
It's at least eight separate layers. This makes our
sole softer. More flexible. Easier on your feet.
Slip your feet into a pair of Rockports. And let
them know what
it feels like to
