If"U.E wMs A PPENC"llY
Os U'S Rackham?
During ABC's televised coverage of the Michigan
State - Ohio State game, a bit of Maize and Blue
skullduggery infiltrated the network's five-minute
presentation on the OSU campus. The presentation
typically consists of a series of about ten photo-
graphs of campus buildings, shown with a voice-
qver some student type who waxes long and lyrical
about "The so-so State University's leadership
among other institutions, in the field of bovine
science and applied technology." On Saturday,
however, in the series of photos illustrating Woody
Hayes' land, a picture of the University's own
Rackham Building innocently cropped up between
two slides. Neither Purdue alumnus Chris Schenkel
nor the pride of the Spartans, Duffy Daugherty,
noticed the goof.
Biggies coming
Two literary biggies have tenatively been booked
to give the annual Hopwood lectures in 'January
and April. According to Hilda Bonham, secretary
to the Hopwood Committee, January's underclass
award ceremony will - if all goes as planned
-feature a reading by Joseph Heller, author and es-
sayist. April's main affair will be headlined by
Paul Kael, movie critic of The New Yorker.
Bands battle
The Wolverines weren't Michigan's only football
victors at the University this weekend. The Michi-
gan Marching Band took the field with their East-
ern Michigan University counterparts in the mud
of .Wines' Field Sunday afternoon for a football
game. And the Maize-and-Blue won a narrow, yet
decisive, 21-14 victory over our Ypsi neighbors.
The game began on a sour note, with EMU lead-
ing 14-7 over their musical rivals. However, our
sports writers tell us that the Michigan band re-
mained "calm and collected in the face of adver-
sity," and it was only fitting that they won the
game on a long downfield march.
Top egg
Architecture student Ron Campbell was this
year's winner in the annual Engineering honor fra-
ternity's Pi Tau Sigma egg contest. Participants
were required to build a device which would pre-
vent an egg from being scrambled when hit by a
swinging brick. Campbell captured the first prize,
dinner for two at Win Schulers, with his egg buf-
fer of two bowling balls. He was so successful,
he not only saved the egg, but broke the brick in
the process. Ron Lamerand took second place with
his styrofoam pillow, winning himself an omelet
pan. Third place and a dozen large grade A eggs
went to David Crosby and his pneumatic water
cushion. One of the most exotic entries, but alas
not a prize winner, was a buffer bag containing
peanut butter and jelly and tuna fish sandwiches.

the areas of social science, natural science, hu-

and philosophy. The area of creative expression
would include courses in music, drama and art.
The other innovative approach hinges on "ap-
proaches to knowledge" with courses scattered
in analytical, emperical, moral and esthetic
areas. In the analytical division math, syntax and
philosophy courses would, apply, while the social
and natural sciences would apply to the* em-

create, "A student might perhaps make up any

is also the possibility that many students will
defect into the-last pattern, which is not really
as exciting."
GREW asserts, "The new plan expresses the
GRC's major theme that the student not view
education as a string of courses."
Lauding the plan's flexibility Morris says,
"There are at least a half dozen ways of meeting
the spirit of distribution. If it fits your educa-
tional package, then that's fine."

Walkout could last 3 weeks

-A long holiday weekend
quietly turned into a na-
tionwide strike for members
of the United Mine Workers
at 12:01 a.m. today as the
miners shut off three-
fourths of the nation's coal
The shutdown is expected
to last at least two weeks,
since it would take that
long to raatify a new con-
tract even if negotiators in
Washington reach agree-
ment within the next day
or two.
SCATTERED picketing had
preceded the expiration of the
old contract and official begin-
ning of the strike as some mines
continued to try to operate yes-
terday, despite the Veterans
Day holiday.
For all practical purposes,
most UMW mines shut down
operations Saturday, although
loading and stockpiling con-
tinued at some facilities under
contract rules for Sundays and
holidays. Only a few mines were
reported working yesterday.
"As of 12:01 a.m. we are on
strike," UMW President Arnold
Miller said at a news confer-
ence yesterday.
MILLER SAID that coal
miners will not be "bludgeoned
into accepting" an inadequate
contract because of public pres-
sure to end their strike. An-
other union official said the
strike might last three weeks.
"I'm disappointed with the
progress we made," Miller said
as he emerged from the bar-
gaining session.
The industry's chief negotia-
tor, Guy Farmer, said he, too,
was disappointed but said some
progress was achieved.
"EVERY DAY of progress
brings it closer to an agree-
ment," he said.
Farmer, who had earlier pre-
dicted that a contract could be
settled on by last weekend,
said: "I believe definitely we
can have it by the end of the
Although some wildcat miners'
strikes have been marked by
violence, UMW contract strikes
are generally quiet, with little
or no picketing. Under the
miners' credo of "no contract,
no work" the men simply do
not show up for work.

Railroads, steelmakers and
other industries that depend on
coal braced themselves yester-
day for the miners' strike.
There were warnings that a long
walkout could mean serious
problems-possibly even a de-

fourths of the. nation's coal
would last at least three weeks.
MOST industries indicated
they would not begin to feel
the effects of the walkout for
about a week. Dennis Hayes,
chief of the fuel energy office in
Illinois, which gets about 26
per cent of its energy from
coal, said no industry would be
hurt if the strike ends within

14 days
He said small manufacturers
would feel the pinch after two
weeks and added that if the
walkout lasts a month, it could
touch off a depression.
An Illinois Chamber of Com-
merce official agreed. "It's go-
ing to be nasty," he said; re-
ferring to the possibility of a
long strike. "The whole coun-
try's economy is so damn shaky
all we need to do is cut our
throats on coal."
