When some University students bring home mid-term exams with
less than perfect scores, they can keep one thought in mind - they're
flunking out of one of the top five universities in the nation, according
to a survey conducted by two social scientists. The researchers asked
4,000 faculty members across the country to "name the five depar-
tments nationally in your discipline that have the most distinguished
faculties." Twenty-four per cent of the instructors listed a university
department among their top five choices. Only Harvard University,
the University of California at Berkeley, and Stanford University
outranked the University. Yale University and the University of
Chicago also netted 24 per cent of the faculty members' choices, while
MIT ranked behind the University with 22 per cent. Add that to your
grade point."

The Regents emerged from a stormy closed session with'a mild.
reprimand of the earlier performance of the controversial play
"Dionysus in '69" held in the Union Ballroom. The play included two
scenes in which the actors had appeared totally in the nude. For this,
the entire 10-man cast was arrested by the Ann Arbor police at the end
of the play for "indecent exposure." The Regents said there was
"minimal value attached to the performance as measured against the
loss of good will which the University suffered" as marked by the en-
suing "substantial public criticism of the University." On the national
scene, backers of George Wallace's presidential bid met in Louisville,
Kentucky to form a permanent third party. The new party would try
"to preserve America within the limits of the Constitution." The 176
delegates from 25 states planned to form a party structure "which can
survive the loss of a strong leader," one delegate explained.

And don't spit in the wind
The police department of Daytona Beach, Florida sent a word of
warning to college students "up North," which we found in our mail
yesterday morning between a letter for the Farm Editor and a press
release from a museum in Toledo. The Daytona Beach police listed a
collection of local ordinances applicable t6 the hordes of students ex-
pected to invade the Sunshine State during the Spring Break season.
"Motorists must not drive in the water," advised the department's
note, and sunbathers "should not recline or sit so as to interfere with
traffic." The memo also noted that no parking areas are designated by
"No Parking" signs, and motorists can make a right turn on a red
light, unless there is a "No Turn on Red" sign at the curb. Perhaps
such elementary warnings are more appropriate for the pre-college
set. -
Midas touch
According to the news service Reuter, an Iranian paper reported
yesterday that the private plane of disposed Shah.of Iran contains a
solid gold toilet. The cistern and flush are also gold, as are the taps and
basins in the bathroom, the newspaper Etela'at reported. The plane
was flown back to Tehran from Morocco yesterday. Calling the Boeing
707 "the most expensive plane in the world," the newspaper said the
gold fittings were worth $2 million, while the overall cost of the plane
waG 5115 millinn.

Judge. OKs NOW
convention boycott

federal judge yesterday upheld the
right of the National Organization of
Women (NOW) to use a convention
boycott as a tool against states that
have not ratified the Equal Rights
Amendment. He called the boycott a
legitimate political venture.
The case "involves political opponen-
ts, not commercial competitors; and
political objectives, not marketplace
goals," U.S. District Judge Elmo Hun-
ter said in his 30-page decision.
HIS ACTION came 51 weeks after
Missouri Attorney General John Ash-
croft filed a suit charging that NOW's
convention boycott tactics violated the
Sherman Antitrust Act.
NOW Officials maintain that the
boycott has cost Kansas City more than
$8 million in convention business and
has cost St. Louis about $11 million..
Similar boycotts in the other 14 states
that have not ratified the ERA have
resulted in millions of :dollars in lost
business, NOW says.
. State officials contended that the
boycott was "taking states as economic
hostages with the ratification of the
Equal Rights Amendment as the ran-
the convention boycott "can be charac-
terized as non-commercial in that its
participants are not business interests
and its purpose is not increased
profits." And he said the boycott was
not undertaken to advance the
economic interests of the participants.
The "interest sought to be advanced
by NOW, and especially the con-
stitutional interests involved in protec-

ting NOW's ability to exercise its right
to petition and right to political
association, outweigh the interest in
protecting the business expectancy in-
volved," the judge said.
The amendment, which would ban
discrimination based on sex, has failed
to win approvalin the last six sessions
of the Missouri Legislature. No ERA
bills have been introduced during the
current session, but two joint
resolutions recommending a non-
binding public referendum have been
introduced. One was by Sen. Mary
Gant, the only woman in the state
Senate, who said she wanted to show
that Missouri residents do not want
DR. LINDA Thurston, president of
the Kansas City Urban NOW chapter,
said she was surprised by the decision.
"We have worked so far and often
taken three or four steps backward for
every step forward," she said.P
Ashcroft's office declined comment
until the decision was reviewed.
BOB JONES, director of infor-
mational services for the Kansas City
Convention ,and Visitors Bureau, said
that despite the boycott, the city set a
record in 1978 with $228 million in con-
vention business.
The ERA Must be ratified by 38 states
by June 30, 1982, to become part of the
Constitution. The original deadline of
March 22, 1979, was extended by act of
The ERA has been approved by 35
states, but four have since rescinded
approval. The validity of that move still
is in question and it is up to Congress
to decide.

President Jimmy Carter signed up 51 times.

in America, 3% of the people give 100% of all the
blood that's freely donated.
Which means that-if only 1 % more people-
maybe you-became donors, it would add
over thirty percent more blood to America's
voluntary bloodstream. Think of it!
But forget arithmetic. Just concentrate
on one word.
The word is Easy.
Giving blood is easy. You hardly feel it (in fact,
some people say they feel better physically after
a blood donation)..
And, of course, everybody feels better emotionally.
Because it's a great feeling knowing your one easy blood
donation has helped up to five other people to live.
