den" is the "prime issue." Hood has
joined other city Republicans in
proposing a coordinated proportionate
millage rollback among Washtenaw
County, the school board, and the city to
ease the tax burden.
Cappaert lables such talk of millage
rollbacks as "a play for votes." Cap-
paert's "most critical issue" is housing.
He has joined other Democratic can-
didates in accusing the Republicans of
neglecting "the -utterly clear need for
housing" as exemplified, according to
Cappaert, by Belcher's rejection of a
federally subsidized 110-unit housing
project that was proposed by HUD.
Cappaert also advocates increased city
cooperation with the University to en-
courage more University -operated
housing and greater tenant-arranged
housing such as the Inter-Cooperative
Council co-ops.
Hood, however, points to Council's
approval in February of the 750-unit
Cranbrook housing project and similar
Meadowbrook and Pittsfield projects as

proof of Republican success in coping
with the city's housing problem while
achieving his own goal of "well-
designed and controlled growth." Cap-
paert has criticized Hood strongly for
reversing his original vote against the
Cranbrook development after the
developer promised to reduce the
project's density during a hurriedly-
called recess of a chaotic Council
session. Cappaert calls this the kind of
"eleventh hour hallway decision I
would never do."
CAPPAERT, WHO moved to his
current Oakland Street residence four
years ago, says that in the largely
ttudent area he "hasn't seen the same
level of basic service" such as snow
removal, sidewalk and street repair,
and leaf pick-up as he did when he lived
in the Fifth Ward. Cappaert says "on

campaign address by mayoral candidate James Kenworthy.

Greek Week celebrated on Diag

From then on, the stage belonged to
the fraternity and sorority members. In
what was billed as "The World's
Largest Spin the Bottle Game," 174
participants gathered in a huge circle
around the 'M' imbedded in the Diag.
The spinning, done with a six-foot in-
flated Canadian Club whiskey bottle,
went on for about 40 minutes.
JOHN CAROSSO of Phi Delta Theta
d Jim Kraft ofDelta Kappa Epsilon,
co-chairmen of Friday's events, said
they hope the game will be recorded in
the Guinness Book of World Records.
No "spin the bottle" record is currently

though it was "kind, of too bad" that
Kenworthy's rally was disrupted. "We
weren't aware that a rally was planned
for the same time as our activities,"
said Kelly, the contest's master of
ceremonies. "But we've literally
worked months getting ideas and spon-
sors together for Greek Week."
Although several sorority sisters had

to be pushed, blushing and protesting,
into the circle to claim their kisses, the
majority of the large lunchtime crowd
seemed amused by the game.
THE GAME broke up in peals of
laughter when Greg French of Psi Up-
silon won a kiss from an An Arbor
local known as "Crazy Mary." Mary
had entertained the throng earlier with
a unique free-form dance, but was
taken off in an ambulance after suf-
fering a fall.
Prior to the bottle contest, a "bed
race" was held on East University bet-
ween the East and West Engineering
Buildings. The race featured "anything
with a mattress that holds four
women,"and was won by the Sigma
Phi Gamma fraternity.
But not all of the extraordinary con-
traptions that entered survived the
race. The men of Theta Chi boasted of
their vehicle, a mattress roped to two
old bicycles, before the race. "We're
not going for style.. . we went for light
weight and speed," they explained. A
few minutes later, however, their bed,
collapsed under the weight of four Zeta
Tau Alphas just past the finish line.
GREEK WEEK is an annual event
conducted through the combined efforts
of fraternities and sororities on cam-
pus. In fulfilling their goals of fund-
raising for charity, as well as having a

good time, the Greeks have also spon-
sored a blood drive, a bake sale, a
swim-a-thon, and a Greek sing this

In the northeastern Iranian region
