A wordy reminder
Although Ann Arbor's investment scandal disappeared from the
headlines in 1977, outgoing City Administrator Sylvester Murray can
never forget it. Tuesday night at Murray's last City Council meeting
before going to Cincinnati to assume the city manager's post there, he
was presented with an everlasting reminder. Ann Arbor News City
Editor Glenn Harris bestowed a plaque upon Murray on which Web-
ster's definition of the word arbitrage was engraved. Arbitrage in-
vestments, which turned out to be illegal, were made by the city in
1977, and nearly cost the city $1.4 million. Murray now has a lasting
reminder of these headaches which brought in finance officials
ranging from auditors to the U.S. Treasury.
Two- wheeler guidelines
Now that everybody's boack in town for the school year, bicycles
will probably rule the road. Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny
stresses that bicycle riders must follow the same rules that.govern
motor vehicles, and chances are you'll be ticketed if you don't. Krasny
also said your bike must be registered with the city clerk at City Hall
downtown (corner of Huron and Division Sts.), and a permanent licen-
se costs only 50 cents. According to city ordinance, it's illegal to ride
two abreast when a motor vehicle is traveling behind and bicycle
lights must be on one-half hour after sunset and one-half hour before
sunrise. Krasny also warns, simply for your own protection, to ride
with the flow of traffic instead of against it. Moped operators must also
adhere to city traffilaws, and must also be registered. Happy cycling.
No one does it right the first time and it takes most students a few
tries to hammer out acceptable schedules. But while you're ham-
mering, keep in mind that the deadline for carefree drop-adding is
Sept. 27. After that date, you'll need a counselor's signature and your
tuition will be set. And after Nov. 9, it'll take a good excuse to convince
the Late Drop Committee that your deserve a schedule change. The
CRISP hours are 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday until Nov.

More on CRISP
Those enduring another round through the CRISP gristmill will find
a-slightly altered system this year. Appointment cards to register for
classes are now being given out in the lobby of the old Architecture and
Design building where registration takes place, instead of in various
spots arotnd the campus, as in the past. "We were wasting appoin-
tments, people weren't coming," said Assistant Registrar Tom
Karunas. "We were making people run all around campus to get
appointments." The change has relieved congestion and shortened the
aggravating process of arranging a CRISP appointment, Karunas
said. CRISPers should also' disregard the notation on appointment
cards that says the card is valid for 48 hours. It's only good for the time
stamped on it.
Ali coming to town
Muhammad Ali, the greatest mouth of all time, and perhaps a pretty
good boxer, too, will come to Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti next weekend.
The retired Ali,. who is the only man ever to win the heavyweight
boxing title three times, will fly into the Detroit area next Friday and
spend the weekend making several local appearances. The jabbering
jaw is coming primarily to raise money for the People's Choice Multi-
Purpose Center, an Ypsilapti community service center, according to
Mahdi Nuir-El-Din, the center's spokesman. He said all the plans
aren't finalizd, but Ali is scheduled to speak at halftime Saturday
during the University's football game against Notre Dame and then
appear in an exhibition boxing bout with County Sheriff Tom Minick.
Tickets for the exhibition, scheduled at Bowen Field House in Ypsilan-
ti, can be purchased at the center in Ypsilanti for $10.

claims he was robbed of $30, a police
narcotics source said today.
The source, who works in the nar-

streets as "White James" and was a
buyer of cocaine.
The source said Kennedy's BMW
automobile "was known to the street

Kennedy had track marks on his arm.
Track marks are the result of injections

Kennedy told the police who arrived at
the hotel, "This can't get into the press.
I'm David Kennedy, one of the sons of
Robert Kennedy."
Police said Kennedy told them he was
driving on 116th Street near Eight
Avenue at about 6:15 p.m. when two
men signaled him to stop.

Geritol cruise


When Peter Sherry and Bruce Cilo went on a Caribbean cruise billed
as an outing for "young singles" they weren't exactly pleased to find
that most of their companions were at least 60. The two Colorado
businessmen are suing Meiman Marcus, the Dallas store through
which they booked the trip. "We walked on board ship and there were
all these people drinking Geritol, taking oxygen, and pushing wheel
chairs," said Sherry. But the two managed to drink away their
"emotional suffering" by running up a $400 bar tab on the week-long
cruise. "We drank all the time. Needless to say, we were very bored,"
Sherry admitted.
