Birth of a Frat
While rush week may be over for most campus fraternities, a
new frat, headquartered in South Quad, is forming a charter and
recruiting members. Sigma Tau Upsilon Delta (STUD), the invention
of sophomores Terri Marlin and Craig Satterlee, "was formed to take
a poke at the whole fraternity system." The group boasts South Quad
building director Mary Bewley as its house mother, and desk services
manager Marie Brown as house "auntie." Currently, 12 quaddies have
paid the $6.00 membership fee which includes a black STUD T-shirt
and a button emblazoned with "South Quad's only co-ed frat." Sat-
terlee. said STUD plans to check with the Fraternity Coordinating
Council (FCC) to become an "accepted" University frat. A fraternity,
according to Sigma Chi's Don Seifel, who served on the FCC last year,
is defined as "a secret organization limited to undergraduates to
promote brother or sisterhood within the membership."He added that
the frat must be a self-ruling, autonomous organization, with or
without a house, that meets regularly. While no minimum number of
members is required, each frat must pay the FCC $25 per semester.
'People 's Programs' Cut
Protesting President Carter's 1980 budget, a dozen individuals
representing as many organizations braved yesterday's cold weather
for two hours to pass out leaflets in front of the Federal building on
Liberty Street. Assailing the administration's 10 per cent hike in
military budget and the cutbackin dollars allocated for social
programs, demonstrators called for a change in priorities for the Car-
ter administration. Joe Volk of the American Friends Service Com-
mittee, one of the sponsors of the demonstration, said "There are
major studies that show increasing of the military budget adds to the
problem of inflation." He added that the budget "reflects an absence
of concern for minority people." Literature passed out showed that the
number of public service jobs has decreased from last year, and the
pamphlets railed against cuts in health planning programs, cuts in
agriculture, and a $3 billion urban package which is a fraction of the
$11 billion deemed necessary by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, as
part of the cuts in the new budget. Graham Patterson, staff member of
the First Presbyterian Church said "economic issues aren't really
known by .people. They're told that the Russians are public enemy
number one and that a bigger military is required to deal with them."
We're number four!
With 2,300 foreign; students enrolled here, the University ranks
fourth in the nation for the number of foreign students on campus.
Foreign students make up about six per cent of the enrollment here,
according to Jon Heise, director of the International Center. Betweeh
1969 and 1975, there was a 33 per cent increase in the number of foreign
students enrolled in American schools, because of problems in the
students' native countries. Heise said this year's increase in the num-
ber of foreign students both at this University and nationwide can be
directly attributed to the crisis in Iran. Currently, the University's
enrollment is 75 per cent male, 75 per cent graduate students, and 65
per cent married. One-third of the students here are working towards
engineering degrees.
At their weekly meeting Tuesday night, the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) appointed Roy More to fill the newly-vacated office
of Vice President for Student Organizations. More, a Literary College
representative, will replace David Laverty who recently resigned the
Take Ten
After a seven-hour faculty session, social work students won
virtually equal representation on 13 of the school's 17 major faculty
committees on Feb. 1, 1969. Meanwhile, a student sit-in at the Univer-
sity of Chicago entered its third day. Students remained in control of
the school's administratipn building, protesting restrictions in student
participation in the firing and hiring of faculty.

Shredder likely for Ann Arbor

This Monday, city council will most
likely vote to give Ann Arbor a new $2.8
million shredding operation to extend
the life of the city's 190 acre landfill.
Passage of the shredder was all but
assured at the last council meeting,
when council members rejected
discussion of any other alternatives.
HOWEVER, IF Council approves the
shredder, as appears likely, the project
still must be submitted for voter ap-
proval in an April referendum as
required by law under the Headlee
Mayor Louis Belcher has tentatively
set two special council meetings to en-
sure a council decision on the official
bond resolution covering the shredder
prior to the February 13 filing deadline.
If the deadline is missed, no action can
be taken until next year.
Council had been surprised and tem-
porarily sidetracked by a Department
of Solid Waste (SWD) recommendation
for constructing a $2 million transfer
station without shredding equipment. A

transfer station involves bringing the
refuse to a central location and tran-
sferring it to large trailer trucks which
will take the garbage to private lan-
dfills, most likely out in Wayne county.
LSWD DIRECTOR Ulysses Ford said
"the cost depends on the level of
sophistication" but the SWD report
recommends a complex transfer
station designed so that the shredding
equipment "can be installed at minimal
costs" at a later date. Ford said the
transfer station gives the most
flexibility in future planning -since the
shredder could always be added later.
The SWD transfer station recom-
mendation came as a surprise even to
the Mayor's Ad Hoc Committee which
had been established two ,years ago,
composed of council members and a
variety of city staff administrators, to
study in depth long range solid waste
dispoal alternatives. Committee mem-
ber James Kenworthy, Democratic
mayoral candidate and former council
representative, explained that the
Committee's purpose "was tb chew

over the numbers" and then "present a
unified statement on the big policy
However, the Committee was unable
to present a unified position and Com-
mittee chairman Ulrich Stoll read his
own statement opposing the transfer
station recommended by Ford, who is
also on the Committee, saying the tran-
sfer station runs counter to the com-
munity's goal of "trying to guide its
own destiny."
THE ;STRONG criticism of the tran-
sfer station by both the :Republican
Mayor Belcher and Democratic council
members appears to support Stoll's
statement "this is clearly a non-
political issue but basically
philosophical." Belcher, as well as
several council members, stressed
"City Council's commitment to make
Ann Arbor self sufficient" and argued
the transfer station runs counter to
"this basic policy course we as a coun-
cil set two years ago."
This argument concerning self suf-
ficiency stems from the fear of a tran-

sfer station operation in which the city
would be sending its garbage to a
privately owned landfill whose owners
would be relatively free to raise the
price which the city would pay for each
ton of garbage accepted by the landfill.
In addition, as Ford admitted, "tran-
sfer station reduces the opportunities
for resource recovery (recyling)" since
the city's garbage will no longer be in
its possession.
Discussion of these alternatives is the
result of the repeated warnings that tha
city's landfill is running out of room.
SWD reports newly-received stricter
environmental safety requirements
which mean the landfill.will be filled by
mid-1982. Likely purchase of two ad-
jacent 50 acre land parcels adjacent to
the landfill will extend its life to the late
1980's. A shredder by compacting the
garbage more than is currently done,
would enable approximately 75 per cent
more garbage to be placed in the lan-
dfill, thus even further extending the
life of the landfill.

Based on Thackeray's novel of the "Irish" military draft for English fighting
and how one soldier of ill fortune escapes to seek his livelihood elsewhere.
He gambles and seduces a great beauty of an English estate with financial
success and personal unhappiness only to be drawn into a duel with his foster
son in the end. Shot on location, this remarkably beautiful film captures the
essence of personal vainglory as well as the spectacle of continental war with
unpreceded technique. One of the few great aesthetic films of our time. In
