IN THE LIFE AND TIMES OF
STACY KEACHN BRUNO
(Original Bad Bob) (The Watch Bear)

By JEFF HIRSH
"Hi, would you like to contri-
bute to . .?" has to be both
one of the most often heard and
most feared phrases in Ann
Arbor. It seems there's always
some worthy - or semi-worthy
cause, braving snow, rain, wind,
and our city's overabundance of
promiscous dogs, intent on filling
buckets with silver.
After parting with what coin
you have, the realization then
hits you that you'll now have to
break a bill for that package of
Life Savers, the newspaper, or a
parking meter. How can this
drain on your resources be
avoided?
Option Number 1 is the "Give
a very little, but make them
think you're generous, while you
even make your conscience feel
good that you gave" trick. The
best way to do this is to build up
a supply of pennies, and have
them ready in your pocket each
time you venture out.
Upon spotting a bucketeer in
the distance, deftly reach into
the pocket and come up with four
of the Lincolns. Just when you
are hit with "Hi, would you . .,"
cut into mid-sentence with a loud
"Sure would!" and drop the four
pennies into the bucket. Be sure
to say it loud enough and smile
directly at the bearer so as to
get his attention. This way, the
four pennies will make an im-
pressive jingle as they hit, he'll
think you're a sport, and you
aren'tout much.
Three pennies can be an ac-
ceptable substitute, but just don't
hit with the resonance th.t four
do. Besides, four is less than a
nickel, which is what you'd prob-
ably give if there were no avail-
able pennies. The problem with
nickels, however, is that one is
never sure if it's a quarter or
not when fumbling in one's
pockets. Therefore, if you must
give, always carry pennies in

multiples of four, and practice
your smiles.
If, however, in this period of
rising prices, evenfour cents is
a drain on your vast financial
empire, or you fear inadvertently
tossing out a 1943 copper penny,
evasive tactics are the only an-
swer. As the bucketeers are al-
ways in the most well travelled
and at the same time unavoid-
able places, this is not easy.
One particularly bad spot is
the bridge over Forest leading
to the Hill dorms. Perched near
one of the cement blocks, there's
no way to get around him/her
unless a quick turn down to
street level is made. Rumor has
it that the bucket brigade even
use to station rookie bucketeers
down there to dissuade such ma-
neuvers up 'til about six years
ago, when it was alleged that
someone from the computer cen-
ter dashed straight into the path
of a bus while trying to avoid the
pail-bearer. Public outcry was
supposedly the reason for remov-
ing this soliciting location, but
further research is necessary to
determine if any other variables

were at work.
At any rate, Option Number 2
is called "Get in With a Crowd."
Especially popular between ten
of and ten after the hour, this
entails joining in with a large
walking mass and edging towards
the outside as a bucketeer is
approached. Unfortunately, as
everyone has the same idea, it
is often a struggle. The jostling
of bodies which is sometimes
ascribed to the fierce winds un-
der the P&A building and the
Grad Library is actually a ma-
neuvering for the best position to
avoid a fund solicitation in front
of the UGLI.
Option Number 3 is fra'ight
with psychological trauma, and
is recommended only for thrse
with strong self-control, such as
Young Republicans or former
members of the Weathefman fac-
tion. It is known affectionately
as the "Lie" and goes as follows:
"Hi, would you like to con-
tribute to . . .?"
"7 already have."
The loudness with which the
response is given is in direct
proportion to how troubled the

soul is for its sins. A murmur
swallowed into a tightly wrapped
scarf indicates deep concern with
the wrongs of society, even if
little is done to correct them,
while a confident bellow indicates
a rosy future with most najor
corporations.
A thrifty fellow passes this one
on concerning Option Number 4,
the "Super Cheap." A fourth
year medical student has saved
his Galens tag, which he pur-
chased as an unsuspecting under-
graduate freshman for five cents,
and breaks it out every year at
the appropriate time. This has
saved him a small fortune in
the intervening years as he
watched his tuition skyrocket, not
to mention letting him skip
merrily by the red-coated bucket
brigade without any questions.
There is one final option, sug-
gested only for those with a ter-
minal disease or so totally fed
up with being pinched for funds
that he can tolerate it no longer.
That is to stride confidently up
to a bucketeer, and before he
can say anything, look him
square in the eye and go "Hi,
got any spare change?"

Here's how!
Jeff Epstein, '75, right, makes a toast with his roommate, Don Burrows, '75, yesterday after being
declared the official winner of WCBN's "Record-Breaking Yogurt" contest. Epstein guessed within
3,000 cartons the total consumption of yogurt at the University of Texas at El Paso, New Mexico
Highlands College, George Washington University, Antioch College, and Black Hills State College-a
mind-boggling total of 194,671 servings. The grand prize-eight dozen containers of Dannon Yogurt,
plus numerous record albums and 45's-was awarded by WCBN luminaries David Gales, '75 (second

A funny thing is happening on
the way through Angell Hall -
there's a play going on in the
foyer. And it's in Latin.
The Seligson Plautus Players
perform Plautus' Mostellaria at
2:30. Mostellaria, or the Haunt-
ed House, is the story of a clever
slave who outwits his master. The
earliest form of Roman com-
edy, it serves as the prototype
for the modern day A Funny
Thing Happened on the Way to
the Forum.
The Seligson Plautus Players
are all members of Latin 422.
They have been studying a n d
rehearsing this play all term,
and the production of it is the
central class project.
Their director is Mrs. Gerda
Seligson, head of the elementary
Latin division of the Classical
Studies Department. Mrs. Selig-
son conceived of the Plautus
players sixe years ago and has
directed a show yearly since.
The cast swears that anyone
will be able to understand t h e
play. They have infused much
English into it and claim that
slap-stick comedy translates into
any language.- Their production is
f u ll of pushing, shoving, an d
head-banging.
Professor Orsamus Pearl, in a
"guest" performance, portrays
the villian money-lender. He also
presents a prologue which he
rendered into English.
The Latin proficiencies of the
students range from some to

i

ARTS

quite a lot. Even though it is not
easy to learn lines in Latin, at
least "No one will know if we
make a mistake," as cast mem-
ber Sue Davis says.
Why the foyer of Angell Hall?
It's the most Roman looking
structure on campus except for
Rackham. However, although it
may be big on authenticity, it's
poor on acoustics: actors battle
a resounding echo.

'I S

the meantime, actors 1 e a a
against the pillars and ford their
ways deftly among the foyer
steps.
Student-composed music ac-
companies the performances. All
the costumes are student-made.
Cast members hope to recoup the
$70 they spent for this purpose
through the 15-cent donations
they are asking at the door.
Mrs. Seligson hopes this produc-

No one in the cast has any of-
ficial theatrical background, al-
though hardworking assistant di-
rector Ann Cooper took a begin-
ning acting course. Mrs. Seligson
and the class just work until the
the presentation feels right. In

tion engenders enough interest
to inspire a coordinated effort of
all foreign play groups in the city.
The product of such an occur-
rence, she hopes, could be an
Ann Arbor Foreign Play Festi-
val.
