Primate promotion
While the American public has been beseiged the last few years kitei
slick advertising campaigns which feature slinky models and
generally appeal to prurient interests, a new Ann Arbor disco has opted
for a more grass roots approach to attrat customers. A gorilla wan-
dered through. Nikels Arcade yesterday morning, offering bananas
and probably scaring more than one chid. The bananas were em-
blazoned with stickers that claim "Ann Arbor is going Bananas!" The
primate routine was part of a promotional gimmick for Bananas, a
new disco on Jackson Road, due to open Thursday. The gorilla wasn't
real, though - it was just a man in gorilla's clothing. No one knows
how old gorillas must be to legally drink in Michigan:
Garbage cans and bottles
Although the city of Detroit may have noticed a decline in the
volume of garbage collected since people have been cashing in bottles
and cans for small change, Ann Arbor has experienced no such
decline, according to Ulysses Ford, Ann Arbor's director of solid
waste. "We haven't noticed any appreciable difference," said Ford.
"We had to caution our collectors - since bottles and cans have become
instant money - not to separate bottles and cans," added Ford, which
happen to be thrown out with other materials. Apparently, there's
silver in them thar garbage cans.
Econom iCat jazz
When the Universi.ty's Jazz Band needed money to join the Rose
Bowl festivities in California last month, one person raised $8500 in a
matter of days. The Jazz Band was a hit - it was even asked to per-
form in Hollywood - and Jon Diamond, the fund-raiser, made a big
splash, too. Diamond said "I hit everybody I knew" and he managed
to dredge money from all corners of the University. All the University
vice-presidents donated funds, and even former President Robben
Fleming coughed up $500. At the last minute, Diamond had two hours
to raise $2000 and he managed to squeak past the deadline with help.
from Music School Dean Allen Britton. And although the Michigan
Student Assemble donated $1200, and UAC gave $500, the Literary
College's student government refused to finance the trip because, ac-
cording to Diamond, the excursion was not "educational." Diamond
now is turning his efforts towards raising $25,000 for the Jazz Band's
anticipated trip to the jazz festival in Montreux, Switzerland.
Diamond, an honors economic major, created his own course, which
he calls "Orchestra Management," incorporating his interests in
music and in economics. The course gives him four credits for his
fund-raising activities. Diamond said he plans to try his hand at music
promotion once he secured his MBA.
Take "ten
A Northwestern professor, Howard Becker, came to Angell Hall on
Feb. 6, 1969, witri the message that "schools are a lousy place to learn
anything in." The sociologist advocated an apprenticeship system in
place of the liberal education now dispensed. Schools ultimately suc-
ceed only in "Giving examinations and ultimately training people to
take them:" Becker said universities should be places in which people
can experiment, monkey around, and learn as they choose. When a
person is ready, he or she can enlist as an apprenticeship in the most
appealing field.

Look again
Look magazine graced the newsstands across the country for the
first time since Oct. 19, 1971, joining the new version of Life in a revival
of photojournalism. The 128-page Look featured interviews with
Chinese Vice-premiere Teng Hsiap-ping, Patty Hearst, and the late
Nelson Rockefeller. The issue also included an interview with the late
Marilyn Monroe, conducted with the actress just before her death in,
the 1960s. Over one million copies were distributed at $1.25 each.
Copies sold west of the Rocky Mountains had Hearst on the cover;
those pandered in the East featured Rocky. "We believe that our
world is both a panorama and a carnival," said Daniel Fili-acchi,
Look's board chairman, "and photojournalism is the best instrument
to record the triumphs and tragedies, the great events, and the in-
timate moments, the famous and the little-known personalities of our
time." The original Look magazine first published in 1937.

'~

By BETH PERSKY
Imagine yourself leaving your
political science lecture in Angell Hall
on any given day. It's 3:00 p.m., you're
worn out from a day of classes, and you
have one last-stop - the LSA Building
across the street, to pay your
psychology lab fee.
Now there is the LSA Building, direc-
tly in front of you across State St., the
central street on campus where the
traffic is especially heavy. But you look
down to the traffic light, thirty feet
away, and decide in a moment of ex-
treme laziness to take the shortcut. You
have heard the pedestrian has the right
of wayin Ann Arbor, anyway, so you
trudge drearily across the State from
between two parked cars, thinking
about the party Friday night .
BAM!
"The kids on campus are most
susceptible to pedestrian accidents,"
said a spokesman for the Ann Arbor
police department, who asked not to be
named. "They tend to forget'that the
cars are there - the kids think they
can't get hit. They cause car accidents,
but that doesn't show up on the report."
Ann Arbor has a city ordinance
allowing a pedestrian to legally walk
against either a,red light or a "Don't
Walk" signal, as long as he or she is not
interfering with traffic. At a crosswalk,
traffic is supposed to stop if a
pedestrian is crossing.
It is even legal in the city for a
pedestrian to cross in the middle of a
block, if the crossing can be completed
without interfering with traffic. But it's
not only the pedestrians who are
unaware of the laws - most drivers,
and even the Washtenaw County
.Sheriff's office seem at a loss when
asked to explain the laws regarding
jaywalking.
Pedestrian accidents in the city are
rarely reported - maybe a half dozen
every year, according to the police
spokesman. A lot of bumps are never
reported at all,, especially on campus,
he said.
However, the Ann Arbor Police
Departnent's fiscal report (July 1977-
June 1978) shows a total of 53 major
pedestrian accidents for the year, along
with 80 major accidents involving
bicycles. The most dangerous intersec-
tions reported by the police, for both
motor and pedestrian traffic, are:
Washtenaw and Huron Pkwy.,
Washtenaw and S. University, Huron

and Glen, State and S. University, and
Packard and Platt.
Says one officer, "Fourth and
William is not so bad - the buses cause
problems. Buses take up both sides of
the street, double park, and triple park
- they're inconsiderate of other
drivers. They cause accidents daily.
Pedestrian accidents? Not that I can
recall."
A.nn Arbor pedestrians, when
questioned about their own view toward
and experiences with Ann Arbor traffic,
gave varied responses. "Well, I saw
something by the medical center," one
witness recalled. "A taxi almost ran
down a pedestrian. He rolled down his
window and yelled while making a right
turn - he thought he had the right of
way.'
Said another: "I almost got hit by a
guy going through a yellow light. I think
drivers should be more considerate to
pedestrians."
There are those who sympathize with
those on the other side of the fence. "I
feel sorry for the drivers," said one
man. "I don't think pedestrians pay at-
tention to the lights. In California, they
would be ticketed. People just walk off
the curb. The students are usually in a
daze - not thinking about where
they're going. I'm surprised more
haven't been hurt."
Not every pedestrian in the city is as
lucky as most. One victim of Ann Arbor,
traffic related the following story: "I
was walking towards Crisler on a dark,
rainy night, going to a concert. As I
recall, there were a lot of cars and
people crossing - a traffic jam. I was
about to finish crossing when I looked
out of the corner of my eye and saw a
car coming. It hit me on my left side. I
got up. They asked me if I was okay. I
had about thirty stitches - mostly from
my face hitting the cement, and some
bruises from the car - not as bad as the
stitches.
"I don't think I crossed at an inter-
section," he confessed. "The hospital
called the police, and they said it was
my fault. I don't know how fast the car
was going. It was hard to tell - there
were no witnesses."
The plight of the Ann Arbor
pedestrian is best summed up by ,the
following pedestrian: "I didn't know
pedestrians had the right of way. I think
that most people don't. I guess it's kind
of 'catch as catch can.' Things will stay
the same until the law changes."
