CITY COUNCIL RACE:
Buhr union endorses
five HRP candidates

Dancing and drinking to 50's music

The five Human Rights Party
(HRP) candidates for City Coun-
cil have been endorsed by the
Buhr Machine Unit of UAW Lo-
cal 157 - the first time Buhr
workers have made such an en-
dorsement.
Dept. not

ITT1"1"f iles
WASHINGTON (MP)-The Justice
Department has formally denied
the Senate Judiciary Committee's
request for government files on
settlement of a n ti t r u s t action.
against the International Tele-
phone & Telegraph Corp., the
Washington Sunday Star reported.
In today's edition, the Star said
Acting Deputy Atty. Gen. L. Pat-
rick Gray III wrote committee
chairman James O. Eastland (D-
Miss.) that the files could not be
provided because "they include
confidential summaries, investiga-
tive reports and intradepartmental
communications."
The newspaper said Gray's let-
ter, dated Friday, also denied the
committee access to government-
files on a disputed civil rights case
concerning a West Coast real es-
tate firm.

At a meeting of the group
Thursday, about 150 members
voted by nearly an 8 to 1 margin
to endorse the HRP slate.
"In the opinion of the member-
ship, HRP has always taken a po-
sition in support of labor on is-
sues with which labor is con-
cerned, while the present City
Council members have taken an
anti-labor position," Chief Stew-
ard George Judy said.
"We were also impressed by the
help they offered during our strike
last summer, and the fact that
they are active in supporting oth-
er strikes," he added.
HRP is presently supporting the
strike by employes of the Com-
mission on Professional and Hos-
pital Activities (CPHA), a hospital
information services firm.
The HRP platform plank on la-
bor and economics, also endorsed
by the Buhr workers, calls for the
unhindered right to form a union,
the unabridged right to strike, and
a stronger anti-strike breaking'
city ordinance.
SA & Dcalls'
class halt
(Continued from Page 1)
presented to faculty shortly before
spring vacation.
A small group of students had
advertised for a meeting of those
interested in re-evaluating the ed-
ucational process and elicited a
small response.
In an attempt to spark interest,
organizers put up a poster around
the architecture school claiming
that grading was to be supple-
mentedrin the near future, by
comprehensive exams at the end
of the semester.
An hour before the faculty meet-
ing at which the class suspension
idea was presented, 125 students
showed up for the meeting organ-
izers had advertised.
After a lengthy discussion, the
faculty passed the proposal by an
almost unanimous vote and a
steering committee was given au-
thority to plan the event.
"Hopefully this will give us a
chance to re-energize ourselves,
said Randy Lasky, a student who
helped plan the two days, "be-
cause we believe that part of edu-
cation is evaluating the ways in
which one gets educated."

(Continued from Page 2)
The acts became progressive-
ly more sophisticated and Fri-
day's five-set performance, re-
plete with a booming announcer
attired in a costume of all-black
leather, was the eighth sock hop
in the continuing series. The
Javelins now have more than
one costume, anchored by yel-
low shirts stencilled with black
appellations of various sorts and
fanning out into First Presby-
terian Church Shirts, letter
sweaters and jock-straps. Chas-
tity's clan has settled into mi-
cro-mini silver sequined skirts
that cling real tight, black
shirts and black-as-night stock-
ings.
The steps leading to the hop
at West Quad was fittingly lit-
tered with broken bottles and
spilled beer. Outside the dining
room, a sea of vapid faces milled
about as uncertainly as if con-
templating entrance into their
first co-ed event. The males
wore gobs of grease in combed
back-hair. Shirts were various-
ly Roy Roger's specials - un-
buttoned to the navel - or
white t-shirts with sleeves rolled
up, exposing romantic tattoos.
Black leather jackets slung dif-
fidently over arm were a trade-
mark. The Gals countered with
sneakers, bobby sox, plaid kilts
rolled up at the waist and cash-
mere button up-the-front swea-
ters.
And the night took a pre-
dictably raucous course. Couples
struggled to remember dances of
old and ended by shaking away
to indecipherable combinations
of the jerk, the twist, the ani-
mal, the monkey and the Fred-
die. Conversations had the com-
forting ring of inanity:
"How do I dance to this?"
q u e r i e s the tongue-wagging
greased-up male. "I don't know"
bursts the quick reply from the
lifeless gal with mouth agape.
"Do I dance fast?" he persists.
"You dance anyway," she con-
cludes.
The dancing was hard, the
drinking heavy, the sweat un-
abashed and the effort well re-
warded - in the form of good
clean stomach cramps. There
was making out in sideline
chairs among cl an d e s t in e
couples, real-live fast-talking
pick-ups and at one point, a mo-

soused crowd. There was a dance
contest, and throughout contin-
uous hooting, jeering, jumping,
cheering and thumping.
As usual the Javelin's and
Chastity stole the show. It
wasn't only that they gave shy
couples meeting for the first
time something to talk about be-
tween dances.
Both groups have their rou-
tine down pat now. If they seem,
occasionally,, like an out-of-step
Rockette group, it only adds to
the whiz-bang. All the Javelin's
are much devoted to rock-and-
roll and their pantomimes are
occasionally sheer absurdity but
just as often uncannily authen-
tic.
The choreography of the Jav-
elin's wouldn't do for MUSKET
but it does fine off-Broadway.
It relies predominantly on open-
ing and folding arms and run-
ning in place (pant, pant
Coach) but who cares? Every-
one cheers anyway.
The teasing Chastity and her
Belts hold down the grinding
sexual sidelights, bringing back
memories of forgotten lusts; lost
teases. The routine is dirty-dog,
loaded up with gyrating, thrust-
ing hips, wet lips, hanging
tongues, backsides brushed se-
ductively against queasy males.
Big Mama snivels seductively
on the floor, Chastity lets you
know what you're missing, run-
ning her hands lovingly across;
her body and Chickie stands
with an utterly vapid look that
we must assume does her talk-
ing. The bonus from Chastity
and Co. Friday was nipples nat-
tily attired with tiny shamrocks
in a vaguely lascivious Saint
Patrick's Day celebration.
Throw out what derisive psy-
chological and sociological inter-
pretations of the sock hop you
may have. I tried and it didn't
work. It all comes down to a
five hour respite from thinking.

Where people have been inac-
tive, it immortalizes frenzied-
ness. Where people have been
laden with one heavy thought
after another, it offers simpli-
city, it is utterly physical, mind-
less. It is splendidly unpsyche-
delic; a chance to get good and
soused and to dance yourself
silly.
It's impossible to guess just
how much the large audiences
get involved in the whole affair,
but one fact is clear, they keep
on coming. Jimmy and the J's
got an offer to rock away at
Michigan State for cash and at
least one more sock hop is on
the agenda here - at Alice
Lloyd on the last day of classes.
In all, it's kind of nice to take
a couple hours out and think
that all that ever bothered you
when you were 12 was capsulat-
ed in the predictably pointless
ditties of groups like Dion and
the Belmonts, in songs like
"Teenager in Love".

O'LEARY'S CASE
The longest recorded attack of
hiccoughs was that which struck
Jack O'Leary of Los Angeles be-
tween June 13, 1948 and June 1,
1956. Apart from a one week re-,
,spite in 1951, his attack only
ceased after some 60,000 suggested
cures failed. The one that worked:
a prayer to St. Jude, patron saint
of lost causes.

Democrats on the committee had'
sought the Justice Department's
internal record on the two cases
for use in current hearings exam-
ining an alleged link between the
ITT antitrust settlement and ITT's
pledge of funds for the Republican
National Convention.
Acting Atty. Gen. Richard G.
Kleindienst had tentatively re-
fused to providethe files, saying
they~contained nothing relevant to
the accusations.
The Star quoted Gray's letter
as saying in part:
"If such materials are released,
it would severely inhibit obtaining
confidential information . . . ne-
cessary to effectively carry out the
law enforcement policy ..."

_ Oleszko has appeared on the
Architecture Auditorium stage as
an animated tap dancing whiskey
sour, a concessions ins. satirizing
the Playboy bunny, and a car en-
titled Patty Wagon.
Oleszko was nearly arrested for
her costumes at the last Easter
and Thanksgiving parades in New
York.
"At the Easter parade, they, the
police, thought I was obscene. I
was wearing a nudeĀ° body with a
see through dress," she explained.
"The body was grotesque, not
obscene. The people loved it, but
as we passed by one of the Ca-
thedrals the cops unceremonious-
ly whisked me away severalj
blocks. They said I was obstruct-
ing a religious ceremony, but they
weren't even having a service at
the time," she said.
