Gargoyle resurrected
There used to be a campus humor magazine called Gargoyle that
printed issues like the one published in January, 1969, "Nightstick,
The Police Club Journal", a pseudo-parody billed as "a magazine with
the real swingers in mind." Now, some folks are trying to revive the
satiric spirit that left two years ago. They say they need students
"with ships on their shoulders and venom in their blood" to turn out an
eight page issue every so often. They say: "Show no mercy, call Gil
now at 994-3891".
Win ter rush
Winter rush for freshwomen and sophomores interested in joining a
sorority begins tonight with a mass meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the
Michigan League. Winter rush is more informal and less time
consuming than -fall rush, and women who pledge this term will be
able to live in their new houses this September. The following houses
are participating in winter rush: Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Omnicron
Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Sigma Delta Tau, Zeta Tau Alpha.
Barn burning
The fire and smoke that some students may have seen yesterday near
North Campus did not escape the watchful eye of the Ann Arbor Fire
Department. At 12:16 p.m., the AAFD dispatched a fire truck to
investigate reports of a fire burning along Dhu Varren road, just
outside the city's western city limits. The truck rushed to the scene,
only to discover the cause of the alarm to be the controlled burning of
an old barn.It seems thatsthedburning was being conducted by a
developer who had been issued a permit to do so by Ann Arbor
Township authorities. We had to check it out on the chance that it could
have been within city limits," said AAFD Lt. Bill Koernke. "The
Township doesn't always notify us when they issue one of these
permits." Township authorities deemed the incident "routine."

Doonesbury enrages Republicans


Study f
WASHINGTON (AP ) - The surgeon
general says he has "overwhelming"
evidence that smoking causes death
and disease. What he doesn't have is a
way to help people stop.
Those were among the conclusions in
a 1,200-page report issued yesterday by
Surgeon General Julius Richmond in a
"review and reappraisal" of research
accumulated over the past 15 years.
"THIS DOCUMENT reveals, with
dramatic clarity, that smoking is even
more dangerous - indeed, far more
dangerous - than was supposed in
1964," said HEW Secretary Joseph
Califano Jr.
"It is hoped that in another 15 years
we will not have to say, 'We still don't
know what works!" in helping people
stop smoking, said Richmond.
Califano contended the report
"demolishes" claims by cigarette
manufacturers that there is no proven
link between smoking and cancer and
chronic diseases.
was released, the Tobacco Institute
predicted it would be "more rehash
than research." The institute* charac-
terized ex-smoker Califano as an anti-
smoking zealot and issued its own 168-
page report saying the "preoccupation
with smoking may be both unfounded
and dangerous ... because evidence
on many critical points is conflic-

inds moi
ting ... and it diverts attention from
other suspected hazards."
The new surgeon general's report is
based on no specific new research and
contained no startling new conclusions.
Its thrust is that the volume of research
carried out since the initial surgeon
general's report 15 years ago makes all
the more certain the conclusion that
smoking contributes to cancer; heart
disease, bronchitis, emphysema and
other ills.
THAT FIRST report created a furor
and led to the now-famous warning
printed on each pack of cigarettes sold
in the United States: 'Warning: The
Surgeon General has Determined That
Cigarette Smoking Is Dangerous to
Your Health."
Unlike the initial report, the main
findings in the new study generally
have been reported separately as the
research that led to them was com-
pleted. Much of the material incor-
porated in the new report was con-
tained in 10 earlier reports to Congress,
the most recent one last fall on the

"Several friends told me I 1
had to hear the Polk Audio speakers
at Absolute Sound. Well, the Polk 10's
really impressed me - and so did the
people at Absolute Sound, especially
the manager, Steve Sinelli.
"At other hifi stores
I shopped, I felt "pushed"
towards certain products
I didn't really want.
At Absolute Sound
I felt no pressure at

The GAS Grandson power amplifier:
Maximum versatility and performance.
The Grandson is the most affordable
GAS amplifier, yet it is capable of sounding
as mighty as its "parents" - the well-known
Ampzilla and Son of Ampzilla.
Grandson is an ideal choice for a
number of applications, like apartment-sized
systems, bi-amped systems, a headphone amp
or driving efficient speakers. Start your
system with one Grandson, then add another.
A pair of "bridged" Grandsons will yield 160
watts RMS per channel into 8 ohms.
Each Grandson is able to flawlessly
manage 2 ohm loads and is rated at 40 watts
RMS per channel into 8 ohms at less than
.08% THD.
The Grandson is available with power
output meters ($379) or in standard con-
figuration ($339).

"Everything Absolute Sound
has is "Audiophile" quality equipment,
like their Great American Sound
Company's electronics, especially the
Grandson amplifier. Nobody else can
match the long-term value and per-
formance you get for your money at
Absolute Sound.
"I'm convinced that I bought
the best performance-per-dollar
system on the market. I wanted a
great-sounding system; a system I
wouldn't outgrow and I'm completely
satisfied. I listen to my system every
day for at least an hour -it's the first
thing I turn on in the morning. The
music is very relaxing when I study and
my friends really enjoy the sound.
"What really impressed me
most was the trustworthiness, the
honesty of Absolute Sound's people.
You can tell that they believe in what
they're doing. They give you the whole
story and they're not afraid to give you
their personal opinions."

While most politicians rage over misquotes in news stories and
attacks on editorial pages, Virginia Senator John Warner is fretting
over his image in a comic strip. This week Cartoonist Gary Trudeau
lampooned the senator and his wife, Elizabeth Taylor in a series of
Doonesbury strips, but the Republican Caucus of the Virginia General
Assembly didn't find the comics very amusing. The caucus censured
Trudeau for his saterical treatment of the Warners, expressing their
"outrage and indignation". Wednesday's strip insinuated that Warner
"bought" his Senate nomination after the death of the original
Republican candidate, and yesterday's strip had one character refer
