The green idea
Your faithful A leprechauns, ever in pursuit of the pot of gold at the
end of the First Annual Ann Arbor St. Patrick's Day Parade rainbow,
approached the Irish Club of Ann Arbor for its unslicited support.
However, it was a little blue about the green idea, pointing out that the
downtown business community would probably not go along with it.
Would this dampen our spirits, force us to resign our convictions, give
up on the whole concept with only 19 days to go before the green floods
our streets and the beer flows ceaselessly? Naaw. It's still going on,
and you can get involved by calling Brian at 668-8031.
Clarification
Accompanying an article in last Thursday's Daily on the language
proficiency of teaching assistants from non-English speaking coun-
tres, we ran a photograph of Math TA Ali Ozluck from Turkey with a
student. The picture was not intended to question Ozluck's ability to
communicate with students. We apologize for any difficulties we may
have caused him or for the Math Department.
Take ten
On Feb. 27, 1969, former California governor Ronald Reagan called
for ia federal investigation into campus disorders. But other gover-
nors, assembled for a national conference, declied to back his proposal
to examine the possibility of a conspiracy in disruptive campus
protests. Instead, the group passed a statement stating that "lawless
acts by.a small segment of the student population must not be allowed
to interfere with the vast numbers of students who are seeking to exer-
cise their educational opportunities.

Passing fundamentals
Ah, the advantages of a Harvard education. News comes from Cam-
bridge that there's one more reason to be envious of our Eastern
peers-Football strategy for credit. Twenty Harvard undergrads have
enrolled in a half-credit course on the football team's "multi-flex" of-
fensive system, taught by Lawrence Brown, the quarterback of the
team. _"ten thousand out of the 40,000 people at the Harvard Yale
game don't know what'd going on," Brown was quoted as saying in the
Harvard Crigison. "I'm trying to teach people enough so that the next
time they go to a game, or watch a game on T.V. at home, they'll un-
derstand the fundamentals." How about an "Option Offense 101", Mr.
Leach?
Playboy at Penn
Porn connoisseurs who were disappointed with the University's
representatives in Playboy's "Girls of the Big Ten" spread should see
what the University of Pennsylvania has to offer. Photographer David
Chan was recruiting models for a spread on "The Girls of the Ivy
League".when three Penn students came to his hotel headquarters to
volunteer. Although they brought Chan a gift of a dozAh roses, Chan
could.not be persuaded to put Henry Hamrock, Steve Schwartzberg,
and Joe Fillip in the spread. "We're photographing 'Girls of the Ivy
League'," heexplained, "not 'Animal House.'"
Boon for booze
Laws don't always have the effects they're intended to have. An
example is a measure requiring Utah liquor outlets to post a warning
against alcoholic beverages, which has boosted sales in booze. A
message has to be posted: "Warning. The consumption of alcoholic
beverages purghased in this establishment may be hazardous to your
health and the safety of others."
The signs went up, and so did liquor sales - seven per cent by case
sales and 11.1 per cent by dollar volume. One theory holds that some
persons buy liquor precisely because of the signs, not knowing other-
wise that theestablishment sold it.

.CALIFORNIA Gov. Edmund Brown
Jr., chief executive of the nation's most
populous state and a leading advocate
of a budget-balancing amendment, ran
into strong opposition from other
governors as well as from members of
Congress.
Gov. James Thompson of Illinois
called the idea of a budget amendment
"somewhat simplistic" and said he was
more concerned about threats to cut
revenue sharing.
"Why are some in the administration
and Congress singling out general
revenue sharing as a target for cuts in
spending," Thompson asked.
ECHOING SIMILAR concern, Gov.
Thomas Judge of Montana said, "A lot
of people on the Hill feel they're going
to retaliate against the governors."
Judge and Thompson obviously were
upset by statements from members of
Congress - including the chairman of
the Senate Budget Cnmittee, Sen.
Edmund Muskie D-Maine) House
Speaker Thomas O'Neill ,Jr. (D-Mass.),
and Sen. Lloyd Bentsen ti-Texas) -
who had suggested that the $2.3 billion
in block grants sent to the states an-
nually under revenue sharing might be
the first area cut to achieve a balanced
budget.
"Revenue sharingf unds are the only
federal monies states and cities can use
as they see fit." said T'hompson. He
urged Congress and the administration
to reduce the nunher of federal aid
programs targeted to spcific projects
and to require strict adherence to
federal guidel ines and regulations.
THOMPSON SAI there now are 492
different federal aid programs -- "492
different spools of federal red tape and
rigamarole." He said the number of
such programs hasincreased by 50 the
past three years. L
Brown said a constitutional A L L
requirement for a balanced federal
budget would enable Congress and the
executive branch to resist spending
pressures from special interest groups.
However, Thompson said an amen-
dment would only reduce the money
available and intensify the competition
for it.
