It was reported in Tuesday's Daily that several arrests were made
following the disruption of the Yigal Allon speech last December. We
also reported that protestors, including members of the Palestine
Human Rights Committee (PHRC), were ejected from Rackham
Auditorium by University officials and Ann Arbor police. It has not
been proven that any of the protestors were affiliated with PHRC. We
regriet the error.
Stroh it goes!
If you've been missing those "Stroh-A-Party" posters and iron-ons
that used to be included periodically in your very own copy of the
Daily, well, it seems that the Stroh company has stopped advertising
in this paper and in every other college newspaper. The reason? The
new 21-year-old dringing age makes most college students illegal.
Stroh's pulled their ads from the Daily with an urgent January 24
mailgram to our business staff saying "It is extremely important that
you cancel all scheduled ads." The mailgram read: "Under no cir-
cumstances are these ads to run." Not all the area breweries are as
virtuous as Stroh's, however. No other beer maker has let prop D af-
fect ads geared to the college crowd. Stroh it goes!
Spring break boogie
Disco at Tomorrowland, watching the Main Street Electrical
Parade, and listening to the far-out sounds of Michael Ieerg and his
Iceberg Machine: Sound like a fantasy vacation? It's oly part of the
schedule set by Walt Disney World, that oasis of carnival rides and
cotton candy in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando. Disney
World announced extended hours - and special events for spring
break '79 and Easter vacation yesterday. From March 11-24, The
Magic Kingdom will be open until 10 p.m. to accommodate all the
college students whom they expect to flock to Florida. Students from
the University will have to miss a few classes to partake in the
festivities, however-spring break begins here March 5 and ends be-
fore the activities at Disney World start.
Take ten
Despite the doubts of skeptics and the threats of irate landlords,
a rent strike in the spring of 1969 and the city's Tenants' Union began
to look like success in February, 1969. With a goal of 2,000 pledges to
withhold rent before the strike could begin, the rent strike Steering
Committee said it had 1,300 at the beginning of the month. Strikers
planned to organize themselves into a union with locals and elected
representatives to lobby with landlords.

Gov't pushes alcohol program

WASHINGTON (AP) - Almost two
years after warning pregnant women
that drinking increases the risk of birth
defects, the government said yesterday
it will push a national education
program rather than order warning
labels on alcoholic beverages.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms said it would use warning
labels on beer, wine, and liquor bottles
as a last resort if the education
program fails to arouse the public to the
EVEN THOUGH the Food and Drug
Administration and others have called
for warning labels, Assistant Treasury
Secretary Richard Davis said labels
may be premature because the
problem is not fully understood.
"Scientific evidence establishes
clearly that the offspring of women who
drink heavily during pregnancy could
suffer mental and physical defects
known as the fetal alcohol syndrome,"
Davis said.
But he added that scientists disagree
on the effects of more moderate
drinking or onetime binge drinking.
And Davis said no one has determined a
safe level of drinking, if such a level
"And we think there is a value - in
this era where people are tired of being
told what to do by the government - in
-a voluntary effort," he said.
THE NEW education program, for

which there is no immediate pricetag,
will involve federal agencies, the
alcohol industry and service groups
concerned with birth defects. Groups
like the National Foundation March of
Dimes and the National Council on
Alcoholism already run smaller-scale
educational efforts.
The program coordinated by the
Treasury Department will include
public service announcements on
television and radio, education efforts
in schools and distributing brochures to
the public and medical profession. !
Davis said he expects the liquor in-
dustry to be extensively involved. The
Distilled Spirits Council, an industry
group, has repeatedly opposed warning
labels, saying data is inconclusive
about a threat to pregnant women
drinking at "normal levels."
HOWEVER, THE council issued a
statement Thursday saying that it
would cooperate with the government
in the new educational program for.
pregnant women.
"We support the action taken . . . in
selecting public education as the proper
vehicle for widening awareness of the
possible risks of alcohol consumption to
the maternal drinking population,"
said Sam D. Chilcote Jr., the council's
Davis said that definitions of
"heavy" and "moderate" drinking
vary from study to study. The worst
cases of fetal alcohol syndrome occur

with women who drink about five oun-
ces of alcohol daily, he said.
MIXED DRINKS contain about one
to one-and-one-half ounces of pure
alcohol. A five-ounce glass of wine and
a 12-ounce glass of regular beer contain
about half an ounce of alcohol.
In June 1977, the NationalInstitute on
Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism warned
that pregnant women taking more than
two mixed drinks a day risk giving bir-
th to deformed or retarded children.
