Re-using the refuse
It makes spring cleaning a lot more simple if you don't let those
stacks of newspapers pile up in the basement.Recycle Ann Arbor, a non-
profit corporation, will conduct its monthly pickup of recyclable
materials on this Saturday. Recycle Ann Arbor, which has operated
for eight months, is based on the belief that reusing rather than
burying resources saves energy and reduces pollution. Residents need
only bring recyclables to the curbside of your own home by 9 a.m.
Saturday for pick-up. It is requested that newspapers, magazines, and
other paper be separately bundled and securly tied. Metal cans should
be flattened and the labels removed. Glass should be clean and sorted
by color. Aluminum and cardboard will also be accepted. Further
questions should be directed to Jonathan Dreyfuss at 665-6398.
Jazz-less Earle
A lot of jazz fans were disappointed last night when they showed up
at the Earle, a local club, only to find that the band they had come to
hear wasn't there. The University of Michigan Jazz Band was
originally scheduled to put on a fundraiser to help pay for its planned
trip to the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland this summer. But,
according to a band spokesman, a contractural dispute came up, and
the band was forced to cancel. "We apologize for this disappoin-
tment," said the band's business manager, Jon Diamond. "We hope to
make it up to our fans in future appearances." Other benefits will be
scheduled, Diamond said.
Pack for this party
Two frats are getting together for a bash Friday at 8 p.m., and
within two hours from that time, a couple from the party will be
winging their way to Miami Beach for a free weekend in the sun. At
8:30 p.m., members of Phi Delta Theta, a fraternity at the corner of
South University and Washtenaw, will host brothers and their dates
from Phi Gamma Delta for a dream lottery. For $10 a head. members
of the two frats can take a chance that Friday will be their lucky day
and buy a ticket. The fortuneate brother will win tickets for a plane out
of Metro, reservations in a Miami Beach hotel, and $100 worth of fun
money. We've heard one brother was turned down for a date to the af-
fair. She didn't know him well enough to join him for a sunburn.
Never knew it differently
Often it is easy to take certain policies and procedures for granted
simply because "that's the way things have always been," but yester-
day marked the ten-year anniversary of some University policies that
are worth noting. The Literary College (LSA) a decade ago yesterday
voted overwhelmingly to open its meetings to the public and the press.
Meanwhile, LSA's Curriculum Committee shelved a proposal that
voting student members be seated on the committee. At the time the
committee seated three students who served in only an ,ex-officio
capacity. Also on that day, the Residential College (RC) Curriculum
Committee voted to eliminate comprehensive examinations which
were traditionally given to RC students at the end of their sophomore
year.
Take ten
On Jan. 31, 1969, initial steps restricting Reserve Officer Training
Corps (ROTC) programs were being felt on U.S. college campuses. On
that day, the Dartmouth College faculty voted to reduce credit for
ROTC programs and to eliminate credit entirely after three years if
the programs were not moved off campus. Days earlier, Yale faculty
members voted to give ROTC courses extracurricular status and to
withdraw academic credit from such courses. The University of
Michigan's Literary College eventually followed the downgrading of
military programs on other campuses and abolished full academic
credit for ROTC programs.

Co-op bakery faces problems

By STEFANY COOPERMAN
Wildflour Bakery has been supplying
non-profit institutions and health-
conscious Ann Arborites since 1972,
when the cooperative began baking at
Pizza Bob's in the wee hours of the
morning. Six years later, the bakery
puts out 4,700 loaves per month, rents
facilities, and still faces financial
distress. The bakery, located on N.

Fourth Street, is next door to the
People's'Co-op.
Perhaps the location is a bit far for
most students to travel for their bread
and goodies, but 12 interested persons
gathered last week to discuss a price
increase at the bakery's community
meeting. At the co-op decisions are
made by a consensus of employees,
volunteers, and community members.
The co-op members claim it is their

Pope draws jubilant
Guadalajara crowd

policy to ". .,. never make a decision
that one or more members object to
strongly. Most often we work on it and
talk it out."
BREAD BAKING, group interaction,
and the social implications of prices are
issues that concern the collective. Two
goals of the bakery are to supply bread
to the community at a reasonable price
and to retain an egalitarian system in
its division of labor. Jobs and ad-
ministrative chores are rotated among
members.
Other factors besides labor and
ingredients are taken into the con-
sideration of pricing policy. Wildflour
keeps the price of whole wheat bread
artificially low because, according to
employee Jean Marvel, "We want to
sell a bread that is affordable to
anyone." The recently voted price in-
crease keeps whole wheat at $1.02 for a
pound-and-a-half.
At one time food co-ops were a
popular alternative to supermarket
chains. In the words of co-op employee
Dave Dillon, who paraphrases E.F.
Schumacher, "small is beautiful." This
philosophy is embraced at Wildflour,
but is not prevalent enough in the com-
munity to bring in enough customers to
support the bakery.
FOR THE PAST 18 months em-

ployees' salaries have remained at
three dollars an hour, while the cost of
living has increased. Co-op employees
earn $80 a week. Little argument at the
community meeting was raised to stop
the increase of salaries to $120.00 a
week. Jean Marvel said, "We think that
$4 an hour is a real livable wage."
If the bakery can squeeze by the
financial pinch, it will continue to
provide the social services that are as
important to Wildflour as is bread. The
co-op is a part of the Ann Arbor
Deferred Sentence Program, under
which sentenced offenders may opt to
work off their time at the bakery asa
volunteer labor. Often participators in
this program become involved with the
bakery and remain to help long after
their time is up.
EMployees say, ". . . the (thee
program) -provides a rewarding ex-
perience. They sometimes come in with
a very unhealthy attitude and leave
with a very healthy one."
Anyone is welcome to volunteer at the
bakery. For an hour of work one
receives a loaf of bread and a 17 per
cent discount for the week that may be
used at any of Ann Arbor's five food co-
ops. Members stress that Wildflour is
not a membership co-op but it "belongs
to the community itself."

GUADALAJARA, Mexico (Reuter)
Pope John Paul II arrived in
Mexico's second largest city yesterday
on his triumphant six-day tour of this
Latin American nation with plans to
drive through packed streets and meet
with poor people, convicts, workers,
and student priests.
Most offices and factories in
Guadalajara, which has a population of
2.4 million, were closed to allow the fer-
vently Roman Catholic residents to
catcha glimpseofthe pontiff.
THE POLISH-BORN pope arrived
from Mexico City, where he had to
resort to a helicopter to reach a recep-
tion at a school because massive
crowds were blocking the roads.
Pope John Paul was certain to win
the hearts of Guadalajara by paying
homage to its most prized relic - a
small statue of the Virgin Mary made of
dried sugar cane paste and given to
local Indians by Spanish Friar Antonio
de Segovia in 1524.
The statue, known as Lady of
Zapopan, is believed to have
miraculous qualities and is usually
placed in the center of the altar of the
17th century Basilica of Zapopan, but
for many months each year it is taken
in processions to different parishes of
Guadalajara.
THE POPE, the leader of the world's
700 million Roman Catholics, was due
to travel around Guadalajara in motor-
cades and also by helicopter, allowing
him to see as many people as possible
during his one-day visit.
From the city airport, where he
arrived aboard the jet of Mexican
President Jose Lopez Portillo, Pope
John Paul was due to fly by helicopter
to the poor district of Santa Cecilia, to a
soccer stadium to address a mass
gathering of workers, and to a square
outside the state jail.
From the jail, the 58-year-old pontiff
was due to drive through the city to ad-
dress mass congregations outside
Guadalajara's 16th century cathedral

and the Basilica of Zapopan and then to
the city seminary to meet theology
students before flying back to Mexico
City.
THE POPE ends his Mexican tour
with a stopover in the northern in-
dustrial city of Monterey on his way
back to Rome.
Before leaving Mexico City yesterday
morning, he was given a mildly en-
thusiastic reception by a throng of
Catholic school children.
Crowds blocked 10 blocks on either
side of the school, making it impossible
for the pontiff to travel by car and for-
cing him to take a helicopter to the
reception.
As the pope's white helicopter landed
on the grounds of the Miguel Angel In-
stitute, a sea of banners swirled over
the crowd amid roars of "El Papa, El
Papa, rah, rah, rah.",
The pope clapped his hands in rhythm
to the cheers and spread his arms wide
apart as if to embrace the multitude.

THE WORLD OF APU
This film concludes the trilogy describing the life of Apu. Through an arbitrary
sequence of events, Apu marries a young girl: the consequences of this un-
expected liaison bring to the film some of the most emotionally moving
scenes ever made. In this film Ray has managed to encompass the image
of the contemporary Indian man on the road toward becoming part of the
modern world. (103 min.)
