Two unfortunate Ann Arborites were pistol whipped, bound with
adhesive tape, and robbed of $70 and four pounds of marijuana late
Thursday night, according to a report taken by Ann Arbor City Police.
Police said that one of the two complainants answered the door of their
Rosedale Street home at 11:50 p.m. and was greeted by two men
wielding a shotgun and a pistol. The en burst in, clubbing and
binding the two men inside. The robber then reportedly demanded
marijuana and ransacked the house. Police said that neither victim
was hospitalized, and expressed no surprise that the theft of the still-
illegal cannibis was reported to them. "I don't consider anything that
happens in Ann Arbor to be strange anymore," said a senior member
of the AAPD. He added that the complainants would not get their
marijuana back should it be recovered. However, it seems doubtful
that the case will be solved, since the police have no description of the
armed robbers, no description of their getaway car, and no suspects in
the case.
Take ten
The monthly closed meeting of the literary college faculty on Jan.
13, 1969 was abruptly adjourned whentover 25 students refused to leave
the room in which the meeting was to be held. The students, chiefly
representing the Radical Caucus, had intended to participate in
scheduled discussion of required courses, and had seated themselves
in Aud. A, Angell Hall to do so. But then-Dean William Hays cited a
Regents' bylaw restricting the meeting to faculty members. When the
students wouldn't leave, the faculty decided, by a two-to-one vote
margin, to break up.

Dirty words
Anyone who's ever been to a Regents meeting or City Council
gathering knows which buzz words are likely to surface: "input,"
"feedback", "impact," "facilitate", "utilize" (never just "use"), and
so on. But good news: someone's fighting back. Provost John McCall
of the University of Cincinnati - who happens to be an English
professor - has sent a memo to all departments warning that any vice
president, dean, or other administrator saying or writing the
forbidden words will be fined 25 cents. "Input" and "feedback" were
the first words banned, and McCall said others will be added to the list
each month. Among the words that soon may be expensive to utter are
"hopefully," "proactive," and "utilize." That impacts on us just fine.
Smile and take a swig
If the University isn't well known enough for its football players or
researchers, now people around the country will know us as the place
where students under 21 have to drink alcohol on the sly. An NBC

group showed up on campus yesterday to do a spot on the new 21-year-
old drinking law. They said Norma Qharles, the correspondent, would
be going to bars and that the item might run as soon as this evening.
Here comes the Fuzz
Ingenious collectors take heed, New York's Wendy Ward Ehlers
believes she has the largest and rarest collection of its kind anywhere.
Ehlers collects laundry lint, and along with other household debris like
rusty nails, used teabags, and unused cereal, she creates some
unusual artistic masterpieces. "Booberry (a children's cereal) on
Lint," "Lint with Dried Red Peppers," and Ehlers' Homage to
Rothko's Homage to Matisse" (also in lint) are some of the great
works she has created. The works are mainly spoofs of famous pieces
of art, and when they were exhbited in Ehlers' home county museum
with other more "respectable" artworks, they drew angry response
from art lovers. Ehlers' latest project is a "lint museum." She sent
letters to sixty celebrities asking for their laundry lint but got only
seven responses. But one response was from cartoonist Charles
Adams, who proffered not only his dryer lint, but, in a separate plastic
bag, a bonus labeled "pocket fuzz."
Pass the leg
According to the Department of Agriculture, we're eating more
chicken and less red meat, more hamburger and less steak, more
sugar and less candy. We ate a little more in 1978 than in 1977 - more
crop food and about the same amount of animal. While we managed to
take in less beef, fruit, and coffee, it turns out we managed to down
turkey, chicken, eggs, dairy products, fish, potatoes, vegetables,
melons, cereals, sweeteners, and vegetable oils in larger amounts.
You probably ate more than your weight in meat - 155 lbs. worth -
and 15.4 pounds of candy. There was no data on consumption of tooth



Pope: Superpowers
exploit troubled nations


Paul II indirectly accused the U.S. and
the Soviet Union yesterday of exploiting
regional conflicts "to ensure power
over the world."
The Polish-born pontiff, speaking in
French in an address to the diplomatic
corps, expressed particular concern
over the turmoil in Iran and the Viet-
namese conquest of Cambodia.
ALTHOUGH HE did not single out in-
dividual countries, it was clear he was
referring to superpower rivalry when
he said the world is split "by ideological
divisions linked to various state
"We follow the dramatic events of
Iran and we are very attentive to the
news from. Cambodia anti all the
populations of Southeast Asia who have
already.been so tried," the pope said.
The U.S. has backed Shah Moham-
mad Reza Pahlavi in Iran and has war-
ned foreign'governments not to inter-
fere in that country's internal
problems. Russia backs the Vietnamese
and the Cambodian rebels who ousted
the Cambodian regime last weekend.
"ONE CANNOT transform a search
for solutions into a fighting program to

ensure power over the world," the pope
said. "Searching for justice is the main
sign of our times.
He listed respect for human rights as
the biggest world problem and said it
requires "concerted action by gover-
nments and all men of good will."
The pope called for a global effort to
deal with the problems of nourishment,
health, international economic
cooperation, arms reduction' and the
elimination of racism.
THE 58-YEAR-OLD pontiff again ex-
pressed concern for Lebanon-"A
country torn by hatred and destruc-
tion"-Northern Ireland and the Middle
Vatican observers said the papal
statements also appeared to be aimed
at the upcoming Latin American
bishops conference in Puebla, Mexico,
where the pope is likely to face
challenges from those advocating the
Marxist-influenced "theology of
More than 250 bishops from the
world's most overwhelmingly Roman
Catholic countries are expected to at-
tend the two-week conference to be
opened by the pope Jan. 27. The theme
is: "Evangelization in the Present and
the Future of Latin America.'s
The pope said the Vatican's
mediation effort to defuse a long-
running feud' between Argentina and
Chile has "already achieved positive
and precious result." The Argentine-
Chilean dispute involved ownership of
10 islands in the Beagle Channel and
48,000 square miles of ocean around
them off the tip of South America.

The Sixties come alive again in this drama of love and war. Contrary to the
gore and pillage documented in Hearts and Minds, Coming Home depicts the
home front with its embittered veterans and those loved ones left behind. The
insistent beat of such artists as RICHIE HAVENS and the ROLLING STONES com-
bine with the superb cinematography of Haskell Wexler to create a backdrop
of Sixties paranoia and passion against 'which the tender love affair of a
paraplegic Viet vet and a Marine officer's wife develops. JON VOIGHT won
Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival with his sensitive, but powerful per-
formance as Luke. Also starring the incomparable JANE FONDA, with BRUCE
