in a report to City Council last
niglit City Clerk Harold Saunders
estimated that as iany as 8,000
of Ann Arbor's 18-20 year-olds
have been registered to vote in
this April's election.
Also included in the report were
the voter registration figures for
last February's primary election.
The total number of students reg-
istered to vote in that election was
6,050, or 43.7 per cent of the 18-20
Concerning the particulars of stu-
dent voter registration Saunders
stated that a ". . permanent
system of servicing the campus
community will have to evolve."
He cited the large, new group
of potential registrants to be
served and changes of address as
problems specifically to be dealt
with. Saunders is considering var-
ious solutions to this problem.
Saunders gave special praise in
his report to some of the student
deputies involved in registration.
He said: "Several deputies, espe-
cially some student ones, were
quite helpful in making special
trips around town to register shut-
ins who had called the office ask-
ing for assistance in getting reg-
City Council voted last night to
postpone action on a surprise plan
by the Republican party to re-
draw the city's ward boundaries.
The plan was submitted by the
Republicans to the city clerk late
last week. According to state law,
the city must redraw its ward
boundaries after each census. Lastj
January a ward boundary coin-I
mission was established to present
to council a plan for altering the
city's wards.- .
A motion by the Democrats last
night to submit the Republican
plan to this commission was de-
feated six to five with councilmen
voting along party lines.
The Republicans have charged
that they are under-represented on1
the committee and have boycotted
Council Democrats charged that
the Republican plan was an at-
tempt to "subvert" theboundary
The question will be considered
at a special session of council at
4 p.m. on Thursday.
An additional topic covered in
the report was the concern and
criticism of some citizens over the
fact that other portions of the city
were neglected in favor of the stu-
dent areas during registration.
Saunders attributed efficiency in
student voter registration to spe-
cial registration sites in campus
oriented areas and not to favor-

der! Anyway, no festival would
be complete without such a dose
of "universal consciousness,"
The best movies of the festival
were David Wolper-style docu-
mentaries, tempered with a good
sense of the absurdity inherent
in a few unexplored segments of
Americana. The best of these
was Charles Salmon's Frogs,
winner of a $300 prize. It is a
study of the frog's place in
American culture. It begins with
men whose occupation it is to
furtively capture frogs in their
swamps at night, partly because
frogs are useful for scientific ex-
periments, since their eyes are
so similar to the human eye.
That is just the first of many
obscure links between the quick-
tongued, slimy amphibians and
their perpetual master. The

Wells refused 'to comment last
night on the decision.
The privileges afforded to mem-

to Behe, including check-gashing
privileges and a membership card.
But, says Forsyth, the purpose
of the complaint was to eliminate

through a projector for the en-
tire duration of the movie.
The camera wasn't star in
every movie, thankfully. Matter
of fact, in thehbest film of the
festival, Heavenly Star, the
camera wasn't even noticeable.
Riding the wave of our current
romanticization of the Fifties,
Star's twelve minute length was
primarily devoted to a stylized
West Side Story-ish ballet, set
in a brightly colored soda shop
filled with saddle shoes, pig-
tails, greasers, and the like.
Star was humorous but not con-
descending, well-made but not
self-indulgent - a genuinely en-
joyable film. I'm somewhat sur-
prised it was scheduled to be
shown with the winners.

the camera isn't a total moron,
a film of any act will say some-
The only other good films were
Heavenly Star and Call Me
Steve. Steve was a parody of
eternal triangle movies, follow-
ing its trio through the 40's, 50's,
60's, and 70's. However it didn't
only parody the cultural styles
but the cinematic styles. It was
good, but again, not great main-
ly because it used good re-crea-
tion as much as inspiration.
Heavenly Star, the best film
of the AAFF, was only a parody
in the general sense. An alarm
rings, a guy knocks over a lamp,
is rendered unconscious and
floats off into a dream world of
a fifties soda shop. There is a.
sort of slow motion West Side
Story dancing centered around

Queen. Our hero finally wins
the Teen Queen (in pink) away
from SupereGreaser and they
embrace, which fades to a sup-
erimposed melting, overflowing,

Queen 15 years later and she's
kissing Super Greaser. "Oh, it's
only you" she mutters, to which
he growls "I'd like to see you

A STUDENT PUBLICATION WITH THE STUDENT IN MIND
Students throughout the country, many with the potential of becom-
ing fine writers, are continuously searching for an outlet; somewhere
they can have their works published. Until now, the only means
college students have of seeing of their literary accomplishments in
print is through the school's literary magazine, which only reaches
other students on campus. Through The Literary Catalyst, students
now have the opportunity of having their literary works read by
other students on campuses across the country.

Drunk drivers bring families together.
In hospital rooms and at funerals.
Because that's where the drunk driver's victims wind up.
Drunk drivers are involved in at least 25,000 deaths and 800,000
crashes every year.
And what can you do?
Remember, the drunk driver, the abusive drinker, the problem drinker
may be sick and need your help.
The first thing you can do is get him off the road. For his sake and yours.
Do something. Write the National Safety Council, Dept. A, 425 North
