Mariac's wares.
Harkins brought samples to the East
Quad apartment and proceeded to
demonstrate to the group of blue-jeaned
students what she said was the best
method for cooking carrots, and the
energy-saving ability and durability of
the pans. She hit the china with a knife
to show that it would not break and per-
formed finger circles on the crystal to
make it sing.
The business is completely
legitimate, said Harkins. Though one
must make a commitment to purchase
the merchandise at the time of the
demonstration, she said, federal law



give sail
requires that consumers have at least
three days to back out. -
"I have nothing to hide," she said. "If
it wasn't for real, I wouldn't come
"THOUGH' THE - merchandise is
received within two to three weeks af-
ter signing the contract, Harkins said,
the payments of $35.24 a month on the
$865.76 purchase do not begin until six
weeks after purchase of the lifetime-
guaranteed cookware.
Harkins said she operates on the
principle that the purchase entails set-
ting aside only $1 a day for 24 months,
money which could easily be wasted.
Once students graduate, she stresses,

they're forced to pay for other things,
such as babies, bottles, diapers, and
clothes, and unable to invest in a good
set of cookware and china.
"This package is worth $1,200-$1,400,
and all we're asking for is $1 a day,"
said Harkins.
Zellis claimed, though, that the
requirement of purchase on the spot
made him wary. ,
"I DIDN'T LIKE the idea that you
had to have $20 right now, and if you
don't give it right now, you can't get it
(The merchandise). That's what makes
me think it's not legitimate."
But Harkins explained that Mariac is
"not even scratching the surface of the
market" of college students now, and it
is therefore impossible for a student to
take more time to make a decision on
whether or not to purchase the goods.
RC freshwoman Barbara Coffman,
one winner of Miami accommodations,
said she was "impressed" by the goods
Harkins presented, but "there was no
way" she could afford the merchan-
dise. "I think she's in the wrong dorm,"
Coffman added.
Harkins said she usually demon-
strates the merchandise in fraternities
and apartments instead of dorms.
ALTHOUGH SHE said she spends six
weeks of the year at Michigan, makes
presentations "three times a day, four
days a week," and usually obtains a 50
per cent response towards the mer-
chandise, none of the East Quad group
indicated interest.


Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

o 'U' students

"I can't even picture any U of M
student going for this," said Zellis.
"She might be better off with a less
sophisticated group."
Mariac is a division of American
Marketing Associates, an Indiana
holding company, reported Mariac at-
torney Bob Whitinger. The company's
other four divisions, he added, are An-
drian Industries, Jeanlinn Industries,
Petura Corporation, and Nattline, Inc.,
all, along with Mariac, Inc., named af-
ter the children of the company's foun-
der and owner, George Douglas.
Whitinger added that Mariac, which
presently has 28,000 active accounts,
reaches college students in 40 states.
ACCORDING TO Whitinger, the
cookware, "manufactured in such a
way that it should last a lifetime," is
demonstrated on college campuses
because people out of school would like
to have such items but cannot afford
He emphasized the benefits of studen-
ts saving money for merchandise like
cookware while in college. "When I was
in college, I blew a lot of money on pizza
and beer. Many students get sick of the
dormitory and want an apartment -
they can inherit junk from their
mother, go to K-Mart, or buy nice
There are several other companies in
the market for college buyers, accor-
ding to Whitinger. One of them,
American Future Systems, is located in
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

CARL WEINBERG, sales promotion
manager of American Future Systems,
said the company exists "to fill two
needs: one is that we've heard from
students that they have a real need to
learn the information we give at the
show, on the consumer education level.
Students have wanted to make pur-
chases, and this does it in a way that's
Weinberg said the company, which
has been in business 20 years, is "larger
than the corner deli, but smaller than
GM," and covers most of the states.
Pete Ingalls, Engineering School
sophomore, made a decision to pur-
chase goods from American Future
Systems at a presentation at Alice
Lloyd last year, but has subsequently
backed out.
"I JUST WROTE them a letter and
told them I wasn't going to do it any
more -- I decided that I had better ways
to spend the money," he said.
But he said he hasn't heard from the
company since he wrote, and said it
never returned the $30 he invested.
American Future Systems, like
Mariac, Inc., claims to provide at least
one participant in the show with a
vacation for two.
"They were supposed to send me
some certificate, but theynever did,"
he said. Cook had also initially ordered
the merchandise, but cancelled his or-
der within the three days allowed by
law, as did several other Alice Lloyd
residents who attended the same party.

- A heathen is one who does not believe in the God of the
Bible. "When the mists have rolled away, and we know as we
are known," It Is the opinion and conviction of the writer that
one of the greatest and most devastating and terrible sins of
our day and generation will be that of "tampering with the
Word of God" by means of translation, especially the
changing of Isaiah 7:14 from 'virgin" to "young woman," and
its implications! According to this Christ could have been
born of most any young woman and male consort! "Know ye
not that a little eleven leaveneth the whole lumps"
"Hear The Word of The Lord:"This witness, testimony, and
warning of God Almighty Himself which is placed near the
beginning of His Book in Deut. 4:2: "Ye shall not add unto the
words which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught
from it, that ye may keep the commandments of The Lord
your God which I command you."
"Hear The Word of The Lord," probably the most solemn
testimony and warning of all, spoken in the first person by4
Christ Himself In His risen and glorified form right at the end
of The Bible: "For I testify unto every man that heareth the
words of the prophecy of this Book, if any man shall add unto
these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are
written in this Book: And if any man shall take away from the
words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his
part of The Book of Life, and out of The Holy City, and from
the things which are-written in this Book!" - Revelation
2:18, 19,
"Infinite potentates have raged against this Book, and
sought to destroy and uproot it - but they nothing prevailed:

they are all gone and vanished, while The Book remains, and
will remain for ever and ever, perfect and entire, as it was
declared at first." - Martin Luther.
At this time of the yearwe celebrate the birth of the child of
"The Virgin mother, offspring of The Vhrgln's Womb." Is It not
important that we be sincere, and not hypocritical? If you do
not believe and cannot accept the fact and truth of The Virgin
Birth - "Is anything too hard for God"- you have no right or
business belonging to a Protestant Christian Church. We do
not believe that the truth of the following statement can be
refuted: that the Episcopal, the Methodist, The Baptist, The
Presbyterian, and maybe some other Denominations, all
were founded and developedto their present high place of
respect, esteem, and Influence, by men and women who
believe the miracle birth of Jesus Christ as announced by
The Angel Gabriel, as well as the infallibility of The
Scriptures of The Old and New Testaments. Without this
faith, whether a man is a bishop or a doorkeeper, he is out of
place in a Protestant Christian Church, and to remain In isb
mighty good evidence that he has "put. away a good
conscience, and made shipwreck of faith," after theexample
of the men told about In 1st Timothy 1:19, 20.
There is a day of reckoning coming, and it is near! Repent,
and bring forth fruit meet for repentance, or resign, and get
out. There are other denominations, sects, etc. that will
gladly welcome and receive you. And the more you rage
against God, and His Anointed, - the better some will like
