The ten person student advisory committee in the University's sear-
ch for a permanent president has been operating without a Flint cam-
pus representative for about a month. According to committee co-
chairperson Jeff Supowit, Steve Stewart, who was originally picked to
represent the University Flint pampus, stopped attending committee
meetings, but promised to send a substitute. Despite a call to Stewart,
no replacement ever showed up, Supowit said. Supowit also said he is
not sure whether he would favor a new representative this late in the
process. Less than 100 names reportedly remain on the latest list of
potential candidates for the University's highest post.
Fahrenheit 451
Sirens wailing, three fire trucks raced to the Undergraduate Library
Monday night after a librarian reported a possible fire. Six firemen,
garbed in raincoats, boots, helmets, and oxygen tanks trudged down
to the basement study area, wherea student had reportedly smelled
something burning. Wielding their axes, the firemen combed the area
amidst slightly puzzled students. One of the firemen finally found the
cause of the not-so-obvious smell-tar dripping from a light fixture in
one of the study rooms. A firefighter jumped on a table and removed
the offending florescent light tube.
Take ten
Dwight Eisenhower, soldier,
president, and one of the revered
figures of American history, died
on March 28, 1969 at 12:25 p.m. at
Walter Reed Army Hospital at 78.
The blow that ultimately brought
Eisenhower down after sever
heart attacks was a congestive
heart failure. "As long as free
men cherish their freedom," said
President Nixon, who was
Eisenhower's vice president for
eight years, "Dwight Eisenhower
will stard with them, as he stood
during war and peace, strong,
confident, and courageous. Even
in death, he has left us a great
spirit that will never die."

Diet a' la Casanova
After the failure of those crash, liquid, and starvation diets, there's
one method that's guaranteed to work-sex. According to an article in
the Environmental Nutrition Newsletter, depending upon the intensity
of your embrace, you can lose between six and 12 calories with each
passionate kiss. Three kisses per day, at an average loss of nine
calories a kiss, can add up to 9,855 calories a year. Italian nutritionists
claim. A heated romper in a bedroom burns up 212.5 calories and two
such episodes a week totals 22,100 lost calories a year. A person on that
lovemaking schedule takes care of 21,955 calories of energy consum-
ption a year, the researchers claim. "If you choose between a method
of weight reduction, you can expect to lose 9.13 pounds in a year's
time," the newsletter said. "If you are not interested in losing weight,
you can instead consume an extra 13.77 pounds of milk chocolate in
exchange for the calories expended in these activities."
News for the Love-lorn
While sex may be an effective way of burning up calories, a love-
making diet is far from just a current fad. According to the "Playboy
Advisor", America is headed for a new blossoming of romance with
less emphasis on the physical aspect of getting together. Romance is
in, says Jim Petersen, author of Playboy's sex advice column. Accor-
ding to Petersen, "the next ten years will see Playboy writing about
the romantic lifestyle (and) about exciting places to be". Petersen ad-
ded that since Americans know what to do in the bedroom, they are
now becoming more concerned with what to do with the rest of their
lives. It looks like a practical romance of puppy love is going to be the
newest vogue.

WORKERS REMOVE charred tiles from a ceiling in Bursley Hall after a morning fire forced the evacuation of several t
dorm residents yesterday. The fire, which University and local fire officials suspect is arson-related, caused substantial
smoke damage, especially in Douglas House.

Fire erupts at

A trash bin fire that officials suspect
may have been deliberately set caused
extensive damage to an elevator lobby
and adjoining corridor in west Bursley
Hall late yesterday morning.
The fire was discovered at about
10:45 a.m. in a full trash container in
the third floor elevator lobby of Bartlett
and Douglas houses. The possibility of
arson is under investigation by the Ann
Arbor Fire Department (AAFD).
No injuries were reported.
THE BLAZE was extinguished by
firefighters from the AAFD, but not
before thick smoke had billowed
through the four houses on the west side
of Bursley Hall. "Bartlett and Douglas
were hit the worst because the fire was
by an elevator shaft that leads right in-
to the two houses," said Bursley
Resident Director Susan McGee.
The smoke caused Bursely officials to
ring the fire alarm and evacuate the
whole dormitory. Joel Sandberg, a
resident of the seventh floor of Douglas,

said he was studying when he noticed
"a little smoke" seeping into his room.
"The fire alarm went off and when I
left my room there was so much smoke
I couldn't see," said Sandberg. "The
smoke was coming up the elevator
shaft. We were choking." Sandberg
also said that the clothes he had in the
laundry room adjacent to the burned
out lobby were ruined.
THE WORST damage occurred in the
lobby, where the floor, ceiling tiles,
walls and four doors were ruined. In the
corridor that connects the lobby with
the Hamilton and Sanford houses, the
ceiling tiles were ruined by smoke.
In addition to the smoke damage,
firefighters broke more than a dozen
windows out of the third and fourth
floor corridors and a carpetedfourth
floor lobby. "Considerable amounts of
windows were taken out to ventilate the
building," said a fire department of-
ficial. Damage was estimated at
Maintenance workers went to work
immediately trying to clean up the

mess created by the fire. The washing
machines in the laundry room adjacent
to the elevator lobby were covered with
soot, as were the walls and remaining
windows of the hallways near the sour-
ce of the blaze. Broken glass also lit-
tered the area.
Bathroom windows on all floors of the
western Bursley Hall were opened to
rid the area of the lingering odor of the
smoke. "Cots will be set up in the East
Lounge for those who don't want to
sleep in their rooms tonight," said
McGee, "such as those with respiratory

MARCH 28th, 5 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme
Court ruled yesterday that police of-
ficers may not stop automobiles at ran-
dom to check drivers' licenses and car
The justices said random stops of
motorists who are not suspected of
breaking any law violate the Con-
stitution's protection , from
unreasonable search and seizure.
The 8-1 decision struck down a
Delaware law that had given individual
police officers broad discretion in
choosing cars for the routine checks.
Many states allow similar police prac-
tices which will now have to be
"An individual operating or traveling
in an automobile does not lose all ex-
pectation of privacy simply because the
automobile and its use are subject to
government regulation," Justice Byron
White wrote for the majority.
White stressed, however, that the
ruling does not bar Delaware and other
states from "developing methods 'for
spot checks that involve less intrusion
or that do not involve unconstrained
exercise of discretion."
White suggested that questioning all
oncoming traffic at roadblock-type
stops could be an alternative. Two other
justices, in a concurring opinion,
suggested that police could make "not
purely random stops such as every 10th
car to pass a given point."
Civil rights lawyers had voiced con-
cern last October when the justices
agreed to review an appeal by
Delaware authorities after their state's
highest court had declared the random

stop policy unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court under Chief
Justice Warren Burger has been por-
trayed as a friend to law enforcement
officers, but Burger joined the majority
The sole dissenter was the court's
other leading conservative, Justice
William Rehnquist.
Noting that the court is willing to
allow police to stop groups of motorists
but not a single car at random,
Rehnquist said, "The court thus
elevates the adage 'misery loves com-
pany' to a novel role in Fourth Amen-
dment jurisprudence."
The Delaware police case stemmed
from a 1976 stop which led to an arrest
for marijuana possession. .
The criminal defendant successfully
barred police from introducing the
seized marijuana as evidence at his
trial when state courts ruled that the
drug was seized during an uncon-
stitutional detention.
In separate decisions yesterday the
court also:
-Declined to decide, in what could
have been a critically important race-
relations case from Los Angeles,
whether persons who sue under an 1866
civil rights law have to prove
"discriminatory intent." That proof is
necessary for bias suits based on the
