Pool room veteran
sees a changing U onepriest

"If you have your health, you
better not sit down," says pool
room philosopher G e o r g e
O'Neal, a retired food buyer
now working part time at the
Michigan Union billards room.
O'Neal's 42 years of U n i o n
work experience makes him a
resident expert on the Univer-
sity and the events from then
to now.
O'Neal observes significant
changes which affect the Uni-
versity. When he first came to
Ann Arbor in 1932, students
studied four years at the Uni-
versity, then left with their de-
grees. Today, O'Neal says, a
professional education just be-
gins at the end of four years.
Another contrast O'Neal notes
involves the price of education.
In the 1930's, tuition was $90
per term, and even that money
"was hard to come by." To-
AP Photo day, tuition costs several times
that amount, with added factors
of inflation and extra adminis-
outdoor trative services.
ste fun dO'Neal maintainsnthat "s t u-
fthe fun. dents are just as nice as they


ever were," but also points to
differences between undergrad-
uates of the two eras.
One of the biggest changes, he
says, involves university-spon-
sored social activities. "People
just are not interested in that
anymore," remarks O'Neal, re-
calling the dances of the '30's.
One such event which no long-
er exists, the "J-Hop", was a
university-wide dance arranged
by the junior class for the sen-
By working at the billiards
room in the Union, O'Neal stil
keeps up with University af-
fairs and feels the University
has too much administration.
He says he can remember
when the 'U' needed m o r e
classrooms, but says now that
it needs more offices.
"I've always worked with
young people," O'Neal declares,
adding that he enjoys his job.
He feels that he "treats the stu-
dents with respect and it's re-
Students at the 'U', O'Neal
comments, "are the finest peo-
ple in the world," and today's
student is no exception. The
pool room employe was diomay-
ed, however, at the "very small
percentage" of students t h a t

difference? :
-I in Italy, in the 1800 s a
poor priest met a boy of the
streets. At that time there were
thousands of such boys in
Turin...hungry, homeless and
without hope.
But what could one priest
do? Without money. Without
support. Without even a
building to house them.
But Father John Bosco did make a difference. He founded
r the first community that was dedicated primarily to youth. With
a program of play, learn and pray he brought the boys from the
streets back to God and gave them a means of earning their
living. From such humble beginnings a movement began that
1 now reaches around the world ... a movement that has touched
the lives of millions of youngsters - the children of
St. John Bosco.
Today over 22,000 Salesians carry on his work in 73
countries. A family of community-minded men who help to build
a better world by preparing young boys to be good citizens for
both God and country. Salesians serve as teachers, coaches,
counselors, parish priests and missionaries. You see, one priest
can make a big difference.

coup attempt in
Portugal fails


LISBON, Portugal (W) -- Two
air force training planes at-
tacked an artillery barracks
yesterday in an attempted coup
against Portugal's left-wing
military government.
Loyal officers blamed "reac-
tionary" elements for the upris-
ing and said the government
was in complete control.
AN CTFICER at the com-
mand headquarters said para-
troopers surrounded the artil-
lery compound but were with-
drawn and the only hostile ac-
tion was the raid by the rebel
pilots. He said several soldiers
were slightly wounded in the
attack, but there were no
Brig. Gen. Otelo Saraiva de
Carvalho, chief of security
forces, indicated he believed the
United States was involved. He
told Portuguese reporters that
U.- S. Ambassador Frank Car-
lucci "had better leave after
Mwhat happened today." He add-
ed he could not guarantee Car-
lucci's safety.
Carlucci issued a statement
later saying "I have full confi-
dence that Gen. Otelo Saraiva
de Carvalho and the govern-
ment of Portugal are capable
and have the intention of insur-
ing my security." An embassy
spokesman said the ambassa-
dor had telephoned the gener-
al and spoke with him.
State Department spokesman
Robert Funseth said, "I cate-
gorically deny that the U.S.
embassy or the government
was in any way involved in
events in Lisbon today."
Military units took up posi-
tions around the embassy as
leftists surged into the street.
The Communist party called for

Former President Antonio de
Spinola, the conservative gen-
eral who led the revolt against
Portgual's 45-year dictatorship
last April, fled by helicopter to
Spain for asylum. He had been,
ousted by left-leaning officers
in September.
In an unusual diplomatic
move, the Spanish Foreign Min-
istry issued a note saying it had
nothing to do with the Portu-
guese uprising. It made no
mention of Spinola but said re-
ports from Lisbon of Spanish
participation were spread by
persons wanting "to alter good
neighbor relations" between the
two countries.

went on radio to urge the "peo-

The Soviet news agency Tass
quoted President Gen. Francis-

a broadcast that the "situation
has cleared up and is coming'
back to normal."
