LSA robbery
The LSA cashier's office was robbed yesterday
afternoon of about $3,300. The thief apparently ap-
proached the window with a brown paper bag and
threatened the cashier; no weapon was visible,
however. Police described the suspect as a male
in his early twenties sporting a beard, a mous-
tache, and a blue jacket. He was last seen run-
ning from the LSA building toward Maynard St.
The police say they have no leads so far and the
case is still under investigation.
Parking woes
There's no beating the rising tide of inflation.
It's going to cost more to be late these days,
thanks to a city ordinance which raised the price
of overtime parking tickets. The price for letting
that parking meter run out has doubled from $1
to $2. The new $2 fine-applies to all overtime viola-
tions, and, city officials warn, more than one tic-
ket can be issued a day.
Fast money
Over 1,200 students in Bursley and Markey halls
gave up their dinners Thursday night to benefit
the famine stricken countries of Africa. The Inter-
state Committee for Famine Relief in Africa has
already collected $1,000 from dorm fasts. The Uni-
versity is presently handing over 80 cents for each
missed meal, and the committee hopes to raise
at least $2,000 through fasting. Over 100 Martha
Cook residents have indicated they will fast on
Monday, while 1,361 students have said they will
give up meals in East and South Quad. Fasts have
also been organized in Alice Lloyd, Mosher Jor-
dan, West Quad and Stockwell.

Coal talks
The United Mine Workers bargaining Council
yesterday voted overwhelmingly to send union
President Arnold Miller back to the bargaining
tables to seek major changes in a tentative agree-
ment reached Nov. 13. Council member Gene
Mitchell of Denton, Ill., said the vote was "prac-
tically unanimous." Miller said he hoped to go
back to bargaining with the Bituminous Coal Op-
erators Association shortly.
Crooks disagree
Democrats and Republicans involved in the re-
count of New Hampshire's U. S. Senate race can-
not agree what "crooks" are. On one ballot from
Claremont, a voter wrote "crooks" in the Repub-
lican straight ticket circle. Secretary of State Ro-
bert Stark, supervising the recount in which Dem-
ocrat John Durkin trails Rep. Louis Wyman, (R-
N.H.), by 209 votes, declared the ballot invalid
yesterday. The Republicans objected, saying it was
obvious the voter was going for a straight GOP
ticket. Democrats disagreed, saying the voter's
intent was obvious: he or she was voting for Demo-

Loot recoUered
It was $2.2 million down and about $2:1 million
to go yesterday in investigators' efforts to recover
the loot carted away in Chicago's great armored
express vault burglary. Sledgehammer-swinging
FBI agents and police Thursday night found a
cache of about $2.2 million beneath a newly laid
patch of concrete in the home of the grandmother
of a suspended vault guard. Out of a seven-foot-
deep, three-foot-wide hole - under five inches of
chicken-wire reinforced concrete - the agents
dragged five army duffle bags containing about
250 pounds of $10 and $20 bills. The money was
being inventoried yesterday.

EMU faculty strike
looms as talks stop

This cheer, led by Michigan's pom-pom squad
at yesterday's pre-game pep rally, sums up
what's first on the minds of Wolverine fans, and
what's at stake for the Michigan team this after-
noon in Columbus.
COACH BO Schembechler and his boys, greet-
ed by a fired-up crowd at the early morning rally
behind Yost Arena, appeared confident but re-
served as they prepared to hit the road to OSU.
The fans, however, more than compensated for
the Wolverines' reticence.
City resident Jack Foley, between yelps of
"Remember the Alamo!" took time out to claim

that he's "unofficially Michigan's biggest fan. 1
lived in Brooklyn all my life, but I moved to
Ann Arbor 12 years ago and haven't missed a
game since.
"Mark my word, Ohio's not going to score a
touchdown against us," he promised. "They may
make a field goal, but not a touchdown. I pre-
dict a 13-3 Michigan victory, because Woody's
good, but Bo's the greatest!"
DAVE BRIEGEL, another city resident, coun-
tered Foley's claim, vowing, "There are no big-
ger Michigan football fans than those in my
family. We haven't missed a game since the
40's, and we plan on remaining Michigan fans

about 55 per cent of the 650-
member EMU faculty.
Substantial differences on non-
economic items such as faculty
governance and grievance pro-

cial package still separate the
two sides.
EMU HAS reportedly offered
a 13.6 per cent base pay hike
over a two-year period but is
asking for an increase in the
instructional year from. 30 to
36 weeks.
