HENDRIX FLICKS
Theater to reimburse patrons of mixed-up movie
Bv TIMOTHY YAGLE

Oy IIVU1nII "'
Joel Brattin called it "a blatant case
of consumer fraud." Randall Lynch
said he was simply "ripped off."
The State Theater willingly reimbur-
sed movie-goers yesterday in an ap-
parent case of misleading advertising
stemming from the theater's showing
of less than half of an anticipated Jimi
Hendrix midnight double feature
Friday-night.

AUUORDINiG'TOLynch, one of the
disappointed Hendrix fans, adver-
tisements in the theatre's display win-
dow advertised the Hendrix mmirin
"Jimi Plays Berkeley" and "A Film
About Jimi Hendrix." Advertisements
for the film also appeared on the
theater's marquees and its recorded
events message.
Mrs. Nancy Miller, a manager of the
theater, said, "All we wanted to adver-

tise was the picture (of Hendrix). We
had nothing but the picture of Jimi. We
covered up every line of printing of
"Jimi Plays Berkeley."
An advertisement in Friday's
Michigan Daily listed only "Jimi Plays
Berkeley" and "Love Is Hard to Get,"
with no mention of "A Film About Jimi
Hendrix."
BARRY MILLER, another manager at
the theater, said, "I don't know how

they (the movie-goers) misinterpreted
the two ads." But he refused further
comment.
Assistant Manager Jim Firth, who
was the only manager at the theater
Friday night, was told by Miller not to
comment.
Lynch said yesterday, "We're sup-
posed to see two films and we only get
one. . . and they cut at least 20 minutes
of the first one. The quality of the movie

was poor, too," he continued. "The film
was backwards at the end." Lynch said
that when the movie was about three-
quarters over, "they shut everything
down."
The crowd, estimated by Lynch at
between 200-250, was seated entirely in
the balcony because of remodeling
work on the main floor and voiced its
displeasure with the movie's abrupt
ending. At that point, several people
went-to the manager to demand refun-
ds.

Lynch said Miller called the police te
subdue the crowd, which he called
"really cool." Eight officers responded.
Lynch claimed "There was no violence
at all," and by the time the police came,
most of the other patrons had lef. Lynch
said no arrests were made.
Those who did return to the theater
yesterday (they came in a steady flow
starting at around 1 p.m.) were given a
choice of a refund or a free pass to any
other State theater "late show" through

Proposal
(Continued from Page1)
Delinquency (MCCD), a "systems
change" agency based in Lansing, went
on record as opposing the proposal.
"There are no statistics justifying the
claims of crimes committed while out
on bail," said Beth Arnovits, assistant
director of MCCD. "Promoters played
on horror stories. Crimes committed by
those on bail are the exception to the
rule."
Statistics compiled by Bettie Magee,
coordinator of the pre-trial in-

K's effective date still uncertain

mid-March, Miller said.

1 a

vestigation program for Washtenaw
County, reveal that out of the 540 in-
stances where bail was granted to in-
dividuals seen by the pre-trial program
from January 1-October 25, 1978, only 18
were re-arrested for felonies while out
on bail. Magee admits that these
statistics do not take into account
crimes committed by any of these 540
individuals still out on bail after Oc-
tober 25, 1978.
"PROSECUTORS are infinitely
frustrated by any criminal reform,"

said attorney King. "They take advan-
tage of the public's ignorance of what
goes on in the criminal justice system."
King added that first offenders can be
effected by the proposal if they were
accused of any of the five enumerated
crimes.
William Delhey, head prosecuting at-
torney in Washtenaw County, shrugged
off the law's significance by stating, "It
doesn't make a lot of difference. High
bonds couldn't be met anyhow.,

It is too early to see what the effects
of the proposal will be, since as of now,
it is officially slated to go into effect in
May. The few cases where K is invoked
before that date, under Article 12 of the
constitution, will not be enough to
determine the law's effect on crime.
Various lawyers and organizations are
in the process of challenging the con-
stitutionality of the proposal, but
results will not be seen for some time.

Sigma Nu dance marathon yields wild
antics, swollen feet, funds for diabetics

(Continued from Page 1)
Friday: one couple because of a job
conflict, one because of a test, another
because of the hockey game, and one
pair because an aching foot took its toll.
"Thirteen couples originally
registered, and nine showed up," said
Bill Hamm of Sigma Nu, chairman of
the dancathon. It's run like a walkathon
- each couple obtains pledges per hour
danced, the average being five to 10
cents'an hour. The marathon consisted
of four-hour dance periods, with a half-
hour break in between. Dinner, lunch,
breakfast, and snacks are provided for
the participants when they need it.
THE WINNING couple must com-
plete 30 hours of dancing, in addition to
raising the most money. The first prize
- paid for by part of the money raised
in the marathon - is a one-week
vacation in Florida over spring break.
The couple in second place is treated
with a weekend at Caberfae, donated by
Caberfae to the Diabetes Association.
The marathon in 1977 raised
$4,400, and the marathon held last year
raised $5,000. Bill Hamm predicted that
his fraternity will be close to the 15,000

mark this year.
Said Hamm, "We had more people
register this year, but about the same
turnout. It's hard to get people to dance
because of studying. The marathon
takes 30 hours of time plus a loss of
sleep."
In addition to the repetitive recorded
disco- music, Sigma Nu brought, in a
band each night from about 9:00 to 1:00
a.m. and opened the dancing up to
anyone interested. Approximately 250-
300 people entered the ballroom Friday
to move to the disco beat of "Solid For-
ce." Last night the rock band

"Gabriel" made an appearance.
The couples remained in good spirits
throughout Friday night in the lonely,
closed union. They passed the time by
playing frisbee and basketball,
especially during the most difficult
hours of the early morning: 2-8 a.m.
The survival rate for past marathons

is approximately 50 per cent.
"We had a bunch of people lined up -
but they all chickened out. People
realize the intensity of it - who'd want
to dance 30 hours except for a few
nuts?" commented Huron junior Kevin
Harding.
