A smashing weekend
Automobiles in Ann Arbor slipped, slid, and smashed into each other
and various other objects a total of 69 times over the weekend, accor-
ding to Ann Arbor Police reports. AAPD Sgt. Harold Tinsey cited poor
road conditions and people's driving habits as factors behind the high
incidence of fender benders - nearly twice the average of a weekend
duringthe summer. "People aren't used to driving in bad conditions,"
explained Tinsey. Fortunately, only three persons required
A nother blow for detente
A delegation of Ohio State University students has cancelled plans to
visit Mary Markley residents this weekend, foiling a small but sym-
bolic goodwill gesture. The OSU students, who initiated the exchange
program, were forced to back out when only 14 Buckeyes agreed to
shell out $25 for a weekend of fun in Ann Arbor. The original list of in-
terested OSU students totalled close to 100, according to Markley
council president Dan Lettvin. Lettvin speculated that perhaps the
new drirnking age in Michigan made Ann Arbor- a bit less appealing
than Columbus. But a Markley contingent still intends to fulfill its
share of the bargain and tour Columbus the last weekend in March.
The primary attraction of the exchange program, said Lettvin, is "to
have a good time."
Union protest
The Ann Arbor support Group of the Farmiabor Organizing Com-
mittee (FLOC) is initiating a boycott of Libby's and Camp-
pbell's food products with a picket at a Kroger's store at 1140 Broad-
way. FLOC has called for an international boycott against the com-
panies to protest their refusal to negotiate with the fain worker's
union. The Ann Arbor picket will begin Thursday at 2:30 p.m. and last
until 6:00p m.
Take ten
There are now nine faculty and three student members on the
Curriculum Committee of the Literary college. But on Jan. 23, 1969,
LSA Dean WilliamHays recommended hat for the first time students
be allowed representation in the group. The suggestion came during
campus-wide debate over language and distribution requirements. In
an open letter to LSA students. Dean Hays rejected the idea that
students have the right to set requirements, but supported their right
to play a role in decision-making.L

'Holocaust' sabotage

From AP and Reuter
BONN - Armed police using helicop-
ters today guarded West German
television stations and about 150 Jewish
buildings to prevent bomb attacks
during the broadcast of the U.S.-
produced film "Holocaust."
"This is the hardest subject for a
German to deal with," said Edith
Keller, a native German and a U.S.
Embassy media specialist. She said the
movie had received "enormous" atten-
tion in the West German media as it did
when shown in the United States last
CHANCELLOR Helmut Schmidt,
who served as an anti-aircraft
lieutenant in World War II, planned to
watch the movie last night, "time per-
mitting," a chapcellery spokesperson
told The Associated Press.
Chief Federal Prosecutor Kurt Reb-
mann said police suspected neo-Nazis
were responsible for last Thursday's
bombing of a transmitter near Koblenz
that cancelled transmission of a
documentary on death camps.
"We are still getting threats constan-
tly," said a West German television
source who asked not to be identified.
Official spokespersons denied any
AN ATTEMPT to shunt "Holocaust"
into regional television networks rather
than the two national networks back-
fired. The seven regional stations com-
bined into a nationwide network just for
the "Holocaust" showing.
"I expect everybody will be watching
the first show at least just to see what
it's all about," said Keller. The state
education office in Duesseldorf said

The NBC-TV production, for which
West German television paid about
$600,000, is scheduled for four two-hour,
installments beginning at 9 p.m. last
night, tonight, Thursday and Friday

A BONN resident placed an adver-
tising in the local General-Anzeiger
Saturday offering to pay for an oppor-
tunity to view "Holocaust." Some older
TV sets in Germany do not receive
regional programs.
Every major newspaper has carried
previews of the telecast in the last few
days, many of them saying the produc-

tion trivialized Jewish suffering by tur-
ning Nazi atrocities into a melodrama.
Some writers contend it is a subject
suitable only to documentaries, such as
the death-camp program and" a special
on anti-Semitism telecast in the last 10
days to lead up to "Holocaust."
"THERE HAS never been an attempt
of the breadth of 'Holocaust,' setting
together the whole from the mosaic
stones," said the respected Sueddeut-
sche Zeitung of Munich yesterday.
The Munich daily praised screen-
writer Gerald Green as better informed
about "the history of the Third Reich
and the typology of the powerful and
powerless than many Hollywood
authors before him.

What's in a name?
The "Dope Connoisseur" at High Times magazine has a beef about
pot. He says the nickname is out-of-date. The connoisseur claims the
word is ugly and flabby. He also complains about "grass", calling the
term "a bit dry, a little flat, even boring". He adds that "weed," along
with "grass", sounds harsh and sarcastic, and "reefer" is threadbare
and "worn-out." The "deadpan irony" of the nickname "dope" gets
tiresome, the anonymous critic notes. He does, however, propose a
solution: "Pod." "Pod suggests seeds, buds, pollen, odors, all the
multi-dimensional sensual life of the fine plant, while pot ought to
remain a word for a thing you plant pod into," he says. According to
the connoisseur, "pod" was a common nickname for marijuana in the
early smuggling communities of southwestern United States.
Computer antics
A teen-ager from Concord, California who caused havoc on the com-
puters at the University at Berkley, was arrested this week for his an-
tics. Officials at the Berkley campus are charging the youth with
grand theft (stealing more than 200 hours of computer time at $1 an
hour), felony vandalism (disrupting the university computer
programs), and possession of stolen property (printouts he made of
other people's work). Faculty members became suspicious when
material that was supposed to be in the computer was not there and
other distracting data appeared where it was not wanted. The 15-year-
old computer whiz used second-hand equipment, which he purchased
for $60, and a telephone to hook into the university's system. The youth
sent back a message in response to a security warning on computer
programs: "You've done relatively well keeping me out. Would you
