plans nature walks
By MATT KOPKA
The hail, sleet, and snow that
invariably descend upon Ann Arbor for
at least four months each year are no
reason to avoid the great outdoors, or so
says the Washtenaw County Parks and
Recreation Commission. The com-
mission is sponsoring four nature walks
in an attempt to bring frost-nipped
nature lovers out of hibernation.
THIS SATURDAY at Park
Washtenaw, located at the junction of
Washtenaw Avenue and Stadium
Boulevard, tour guides will lecture
their followers on "Urban Woodlots."
"Animals in Winter" will be the
theme of Sunday's hike, to be held at
Park Lyndon, off North Territorial
Road. Walkers will be on the lookout for
the park's small animals and signs of
their winter activities. They will
discuss the creatures' habits, habitats,
The following Saturday, Jan. 20,
again at Park Lyndon, bird watching
enthusiasts will gather in hopes of cat-
ching a glimpse of the many feathered
creatures that populate the area in the
Veterans of the University School of
Natural Resources courses on Woody
Plants, as well as any novices who
would simply like to learn about the
subject, can meet Sunday, Jan. 21, at
the Matthei Botantical Gardens on Dix-
boro Road, where discussion will center
on area trees.
The walks are free of charge, and
anyone interested in making a reser-
vation may call 994-2575.

Blatantly racist, powerfully manipulative and certainly objectionable in it's
misrepresentation of the historical facts of Reconstruction, this film is never-
theless a masterpiece of cinematic achievement in its virtuoso use of a new
art form. "The film remains incredibly flimsy as abstract intellectualization."

programming chairman and MSA
representative to the Union Board of
Directors, members of these groups
decided to act after the Regents tabled
a decision on Union modifications at
their meeting last month.
The groups are lobbying for
proposals which call for transferring
control of the Union to the Office of
Student Services and converting the
building's hotel rooms into dormitory
LEBOW SAID lobbying efforts in-
" Sending mailgrams to the Regents;
" Providing preaddressed stamped
post cards so that students may send
their opinions directly to the Regents;
" Urging campus student gover-.
nments to send collective mailgrams
and attend the Jan. 18 Regents
" Taking out ads which include the
Regents' addresses and phone numbers
union support personally;
'We have to show that
students want a student
center anid not a confer-
ence center, which it is
unless the Regents get rid
of the hotel. The only way
to do this is by packing
the Regents meeting.'
-Jeff Lebow, MSA
represen tative to
the Union Board
* Distributing flyers;
" And paying for student-Regent
telephone calls from MSA and UAC of-
and urge students to verbalize their fices.
In addition, Lebow said he, MSA
president Eric Arnson, and Union
Board of Directors President Larry
Pulkownik will make personal visits to
Lebow said he hopes the lobbying will
inform students of the issues and will
also encourage them to attend the
Regents meeting. "The main thing is
for everyone to go to the Regents
meeting because some Regents have
expressed doubt in student interest in
the Union," explained Lebow.
LEBOW ADDED that "We have to
show that students want a student cen-
ter and not a conference center, which
it is unless they (the Regents) get rid of
the hotel. The only way to do this is by
packing the Regents meeting."
MSA member and lobbying organizer
Joe Pelava said he thought the project
would garner "pretty good support. It's
a really good issue because it isn't par-
tisan, so it should unite all students on
campus," said Pelava. "Everyone
from bookworms to artisans to people
who like to party or people who just like
to talk can benefit from the Union," he
Arnson said Monday night the lob-
bying effort is "the best thing MSA
gave support to all year" because it is
so clearly a student issue."

(John Landis, 1977) The smashingly successful satirical revue group from the Kentucky Fried
Theatre in Los Angeles hits new comedy heights in this hilarious spoof of television and the
movies. The KENTUCKY FRIED crew pokes fun at the American establishment and our
cherished media, and their humor is even more outrageous and pointed in its satire than
TV's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
