Trek to Canterbury
offers sale, lots more.

The Michigan Daily-Satorday, September 22,1979-Page 5
Refugees could spark a Beatles reunion:
Millions may be raised for boat people

By GILLIAN BOLLING
Canterbury Loft this weekend
features the work of twelve artists from
the Ann Arbor community in a Starving
Artists Sale. Each artist has entered up
to ten pieces priced within the range of
starving students. There are many at-
tractive pieces which would certainly
liven up a dorm wall or beautify the
gaping spaces in a new apartment.
Featured in this year's sale are
weavings, woodcuts, drawings, oils,
watercolors, pottery, photographs and
crocheted items.
Starving artist Thomas Weston feels
that "too, many students are in-
timidated by art and artists." This sale
will give students a chance to meet
some friendly, unintimidating artists
who are very happy to talk about their
pieces, and are very happy to sell them
to you.' ,
ARTISTS IN the show range from
University art students- trying their
hand at bright chalk drawings and
wood cuts, to a social worker who does
pen and ink drawings detailing the
"creation of Eve." I especially enjoyed
the photographs submitted by
Episcopal Reverend Richard Singleton
from St. Aidan's. In particular there
was an enjoyably whimsical photo of a
young woman looking at works of art
hung on a ,gallery wall - it created a
picture-within-a-picture feel.
Canterbury Loft is located on the
second floor at 332 South State Street,
two doors down from Nickels Arcade.
By the time one reaches the top of the
stairs, one can recognize immediately
the Loft's very friendly atmosphere.
There is a main sitting room where the

paintings are hung that is comfortably
furnished with plants, easy chairs, and
a skylight that filters in the sun. The
staff is very willing to help with any
people interested in using the space for
artistic events, provided that the event
is presented by or for members of the
University.
THE WORKS of the artists exhibited
in the sale were not juried - that is the
artists were accepted on a first-
come-first-served basis. This has
provided an excellent opportunity for
students who might have had trouble
getting their works exhibited in an art
gallery. It also means that some of the
works are not especially remarkable
art. But, overall for the price range of
$15 or under, most of the pieces are
quite reasonably good. Each artist was
required to pay an entry fee and they in
turn take home all the proceeds from
the selling of their work.
This is the second annual fall art sale
at Canterbury Loft. Last year's sale
drew over 800 browsers and buyers.
The artists who have returned consider
the sale to be a good chance to gain
some exposure and meet people who
may become interested in their work. A
few of the artists found. that this is a
good way to encounter buyers who will
keep their work in mind and perhaps
commission them to do a piece.
So, if you are interested in the arts
and you haven't checked out Canter-
bury Loft - do so. There will be lots of
creative things going on during the year
such as, plays, dramatic readings, dan-
ce shows and films. Besides, the prices
are reasonable, so you won't have to
scrimp on eating in order to enjoy the
arts.

Last spring, three of them-minus
John-played together at a private par-
ty.
Guiliani said the location and date of
the proposed concert was undecided.
Some reports put it probably in New
York, but a U.N. source said the site
would be Geneva, headquarters for the
U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.
The source said the commissioner's
office has been the principal U.N. agen-
cy working on the concert.
GUILIANI SAID the success of last
January's rock and disco benefit by the
Bee Gees and other performers-which
raised nearly $4 million for the U.N.
Children's Fund, UNICEF-had en-
couraged. Waldheim to endorse the
Beatles idea.

That concert, held in the U.N.
General Assembly hall in New York,
provided income from televison and
from rights to music performed.
Summers estimates that $250 to $300
million could be raised for the boat
people through proceed from an album,
a film, video cassettes, and a world-
wide closed-circuit broadcast of the
concert, as well as television network
rights.
Giuliani was unable to say whether
the Beatles project originated with the
United Nations or with show busines
promotes. "Ever since last year's con-g
cert we have had many contacts withy
show business," he said. "Just where.
and how the Beatles project started I
could not say."

agreed to the idea.,
"In July George Hamilton did com-
mit to do a concert-and contacted Paul,
I'm told, and Ringo, and they said they
would do it if he did," Summers said.
"SO WE HAD, through George, a
commitment for three," Summers con-
tinued. "Our next problem was to ob-
tain John Lennon's agreement."
To do that, Summers said he sent a
courier to Tokyo with messages for
John from himself and Waldheim, but

In addition, a spokesperson in Paul's
office denied any concert was in the
making. "The answer is no. As far as
we know, it is not happening," was the
response.
Reliable sources in London said there
would not be a Beatles reunion in any
case because it would take months to
untangle contractual and artistic
problems between the group members.
THE BEATLES HAVE made records
separately since they split up in 1970.

Feminist criticizes

S. Africa policy changed

Kennedy a
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The
chairwoman of the National Women's
Political Caucus criticized President
Carter and two potential challengers
Thursday, and said Sen. Edward Ken-
nedy's "private liferaises questions."
"He is a known womanizer, or has
been, and the relationship in his
marriage gives me reason for pause,''
Iris Mitgang said when asked about her
reference to Kennedy's private life

Press Club speech.
MITGANG, A lawyer from Orinda,
east of San Francisco, was recently
elected to her two-year term with the
45,000-member caucus, a group that

"I worry because he's largely un-
tested," she said of Kennedy.

THE MAN WHO LOVED WOMEN
(Francois Truffaut, 1977) 7 & 9-MLB 3
The story of Bertrand Morane, an intelligent and sensitive bachelor who loves
all women. More than a comedy of the sexes, this film explores the many
faces of male-female relationships. "A supremely humane, sophisticated
comedy full of the double-edged wit of the self-award."-Vincent Canby.

other than total divestment considered
by the protesters
"I feel terribly uncomfortable that
the information we have is incomplete
and inaccurate," Laro said.
iiE CONTENDED. that the activists
were firm in their demands from the
outset, and that they did not consider
alternatives for change other than total
divestment.
L4ro said the. issue is not really
whether the policy which the Regents
approve improves the situation in South
Africa, but "the issue that is more im-
portant is whether we should be in the
business of teaching philosophy or
morality rather than dictating
philosophy or morality." ,
baro's motion failed, 2-6, with
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor),
supporting the position.
REGENT PAUL Brown (D-
Petoskey) proposed a policy which
would have required the University to
use its stock votes at corporate
meetings to favor withdrawal of cor-
porations from South Africa. Four
Regents voted in favor of Brown's
motion, and four against. Sarah Power
(D-Ann Arbor), James Waters (D-
Muskegon), Gerald Dunn (D-Lansing),
and Brown supported the proposal.
"I do not believe that divestiture by
the University is the best means to
achieve change," Brown said. "The
best means is for the University to at-
tend the meetings (of corporations),
and vote its stock in support of
stockholder resolutions."
POWER THEN moved that the
SAACFA report be adopted as presen-
ted. She received support from Regents
Brown and Waters, after four amen-
dments proposed by Waters were voted
down.
Power said she supports the original
policy the Regents adopted, but said the
SAACFA report strengthened the
University's commitment to those
policies.
Waters' first amendment to the
SAACFA report, which was not secon-
ded, would have kept the University
from purchasing or approving any ad-
ditional stocks or bonds in any cor-
poration or bank which did business in
South Africa. After the meeting, Waters
said the WCCAA provided him with
a list of revisions to the SAACFA report,
but that he did not propose all of them.
HIS SECOND proposal would have
required a comprehensive report on
corporate activity in South Africa to be
submitted twice each year. His amen-
dment was supported by Power and
Broen, but it failed.
His third suggestion would have for-
ced the University to sell its stock in
any corporation which sold goods or
services to the South African military
or police. Brown and Power again voted
for Waters' unsuccessful motion.
The final addition to the SAACFA
report proposed by Waters would have
required the University to terminate its
dealings with banks or insurance com-
panies transacting business with the
South African government or gover-
nment-owned corporations. The vote on
the amendment was 1-7.
WATERS THEN suggested that the
current policy urge corporations to

protect the rights of "all persons in
South Africa and in the homeland" as
well as corporate employees.
The amendment failed, with Regents
Laro, Baker, Robert Nederlander (D-
Birmingham), and Thomas Roach (D-
Saline) opposing it.
THEN, AT THE suggestion of Roach,
the Regents amended the March 1978
resolution on South African investmen-
ts to include bonds as well as stocks.
The two votes taken were 7-0, with Laro
abstaining.
As the Regents finished voting,
several anti-apartheid activists
unrolled a sign, which read, "We will
struggle until victory is assured," and
circled the table where the Regents and
executive officers . were seated. The
Board then quickly adjourned.
Of the 'meeting, WCCAA member
Heidi Gottfried said, "It was typical. It
was a show. They rehearsed it.".
ANNE FULLERTON, WCCAA and
student SAACFA member, said, "The
failure to pass a report shows
disrespect to all the work SAACFA has
done." She also said the failure of the
Regents to pass the amendment regar-
ding sales to the military, "shows a
failure to understand U.S. policy. The
coalition and I will interpret it as being
in support of sales to the military and
police."
WCCAA members said they would
continue to work on the divestment
issue, but shift their focus outside the
University.
Vice-President and Chief Financial
Officer James Brinkerhoff said the ad-
dition of the bond amendment to the
Regents' policy "could have some im-
pact," and that bonds are "relatively
easy to monitor" because most bonds
are invested in firms in which the
University also holds stocks.
The University has approximately
$10.6 million in bonds in South Africa,
and $44.8 million in stocks, according to
Investment Officer Norman Herbert.
