Marty Britsch, bus driver on AATA bus 248 on the Packard run, of-
fered his customers an unexpected Valentine's Day gift - free rides.
Britsch; who graduated from the University's Music School last year,
placed a sign over the collection box which read: "Happy Valentine's
Day from Marty-Free Ride." Britsch said that riders couldn't
believe they were getting something for nothing, and some even tried
to pay anyway. A few riders reciprocated, and gave Britsch gifts
themselves. "A couple of cards from school kids, and a Valentine's
lolliipop," said Britsch. Britsch added that he has no plans to cancel
fares for St. Patrick's Day. The freebies actually aren't so free. Brit-
sch paid for his passengers out of his own pocket.
Campus Republicans unite
The Michigan Republicans Club, a newly-formed group on campus,
recently elected officers, who were chosen from 15 charter members.
The new group plans a mass meeting and a caiipus-wide membership
drive in the near future, although according to secretary Betsy
Hayhow, no plans have been formalized.."We're the Republican party
on campus," said president Tim Lee.'"We'll register voters, work in
campaigns, participate in party conventions, hear speakers, and
we're not always so serious. Thereare plenty of good, fun times ahead."
Hayhow said that while the club is concentrating on signing up studen-
ts, others in the community are welcome. For information, call 995-
2649 or 995-2727.
Correction
In an article printed Feb. 13, we reported that should initial cab
fares go up from 70 to $1, the rates would be rising 28 per cent. This
percentage figure is incorrect. The figure would fluctuate with the
length of the ride.
Take ten
On Feb. 16, 1969, former Oregon Senator Wayne Morse told a crowd
in the Michigan Union Ballroom that politicians are afraid to vote
their beliefs. "Do not accept what a politician says unless what he says
can be squared with the voting record," the Democrat warned. Morse
was one of the first Democrats to publicly oppose the Vietnam War
and was defeated in 1968 after 24years in the Senate.

Nebraska, we found supplement that drew our attention. "And the two

CHICAGO (AP)-Seven feet of snow
and a maverick woman Democrat are
posing the first major threat in years to
the Chicago political machine. And
Mayor Michael Bilandic is taking it
seriously enough to compare it to the
persecution of Christ by the Romans.
Bilandic, heir to the political empire
of the late Mayor Richard .Daley, is.
facing a primary election challenge.
Feb. 27 from Jane Byrne, once a mem-
ber of Daley's and Bilandic's cabinet.
IN THE EARLY HISTORY of
Christianity, you see a leader, starting
with 12 disciples." Bilandic told a
meeting of Democratic precinct
workers Wednesday, his voice frequen-
tly cracking with emotion.
"They crucify the leader and made
martyrs of the others. And what was
the result? Christianity is bigger and
stronger than it was before," he said.
"It's our turn to be in the trenches to
see if we are made of the same stuff as
the early Christians, the persecuted
Jews, the proud Poles, the blacks and
Latinos."
Andy Bajonski, a spokesman for
Byrne, said yesterday, "We really

think we've got Bilandic on the run.
He's showing the pressure."
BURNE, 43, was fired by Bilandic
last year when she .accused him of
facilitating taxi cab fare increases in
violation of city laws. Investigations
were conducted, but no charges have
been brought.
She and others have harshly
criticized the city's efforts to clear the
more than 80 inches of snow that has
fallenthis winter.
Bilandic, 56, drew wide criticism
when it was disclosed that he
authorized more than $300,000 in con-
sulting fees to former Deputy Mayor
Ken Sam-including a $90,000 contract
for a snow removal plan that fizzled
during a mid-January blizzard that
dropped more than 20 inches.
IN HIS TALK to precinct workers,
Bilandic also said his defeat could
mean to Chicago "what political
upheaval has meant in Cambodia and
Iran.
"The same seeds of subversion are
being planted right here in Chicago,"
he said. "The same attempt to destroy
is just as strong here today as it is in the
foreign intrigue situations."
