books

The Residential College's Representative Assembly yesterday
voted to use its own funds to replace about $1,500-worth of books
and records stolen in recent months from the college's library.
The decision came after black students checked out and hid the
library's 2,700 books to dramatize the need for replacement of
the missing equipment. The Assembly also voted to appropriate
$500 of its own funds to add a black student to the library staff-7
which now has two black employes out of a total of nine-and to
designate a black lounge in East Quad.
Ironic me(a)ssage
The American Massage Parlor, busted in a raid Tuesday
afternoon, is not without police protection. A sticker on the front
door advises passersby that the parlor is registered with the
Fraternal Order of Police, and anyone who gives "information
leading to the arrest and conviction of burglars" will be re-
warded for their efforts.
Liz's money
Democratic county commissioner candidate Elizabeth Taylor
has a lot more going for her than her famous name. She's got
$558.35 in campaign funds, she has announced. The campaign
contributors rang from biggies like former city school board
candidate Ruth 'Zweifler ($25), and city Councilperson Nelson
Meade (D-Third Ward) ($15), to cheapskates like City Attorney
Jerold Lax ($5), democratic candidate for sheriff Fred Postill
($5), local attorney Don Koster ($5), and The Daily's own books
editor, Ed Surovell ($5).
Green backers
The number of students with enough interest in the fate of
Chemistry Prof. Mark Green to attend a meeting has dwindled
from 400 to a mere handful. Green was suspended last week for
showing an anti-war slide presentation in one of his classes.
Only thirteen students went to a meeting in the Student Activities
Building last night to decide further plans, and two of those were
reporters. No doubt the fact that Green has been temporarily
reinstated has had a lot to do with it.
Happenings .
. won't bowl you over. Congressman Marvin Esch and
his Democratic opponent Marvin Stempien have finally arranged
to debate each other (after avoiding it throughout the campaign).
They'll meet today at 8 p.m. in Rackham Aud. . . . tonight's
visitors' night for the astronomy department. "Doc" Hazel Losh
will be speaking on "the autumn sky" in Aud. B at 8 p.m. if
you care to stay up past your bedtime. . . . Attorney David
Chambers will be speaking on "the rights of prisoners and
mental patients" tonight at 8 at 1502 Cambridge. The speech
is part of the American Civil Liberties Union forum. . . . Huron
High's mighty football team will meet Jackson Parkside tonight,
8 p.m., at Pioneer High, as Huron names its homecoming queen.
No sign of Boggs
ANCHORAGE, Alaska-More than 70 planes and a ground
rescue team continued the search yesterday for Democratic
House leader Hale Boggs and three others missing since Monday
in a downed plane. The weather was the best it has been since
the search began. Planes searched for fifty miles on each side
of, the plane's flight path and ships continued to cruise along
the coastline of the Alaskan Panhandle without finding any signs
of Boggs.
CIA sputters
WASHINGTON-The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) stole
the Soviet Sputnik to examine it while it was on world tour in
1958. According to "CIA-The Myth and the Madness," a new
book by former CIA agent Patrick McGarvey, "the Sputnik
was stolen for three hours by a CIA team which completely
dismantled it, took samples of its structure, photographed it,
reassembled it and returned it to its original place undetected."
f The great pumpkin
RUTLAND, Mass.-Wouldn't you know it? All the weirdos
start coming out around Halloween. Five-year-old Katrina James
was just sitting around minding her own business when the
mailman delivered her a foot-high pumpkin. Just a pumpkin
with her name and two 50-cent stamps on it. It seems that
Katrina's grandmother was trying to prove that you can send
anything through the mail if you put enough postage on it. The
pumpkin arrived unharmed.
High cost of loving?
DETROIT-A middle-aged Detroit couple is still married after
attempting to win a divorce on grounds that inequity in income
tax laws penalized married couples. Charles Hammond and his
wife Marie took the decision of Wayne County Circuit Court
Judge Richard Maher philosophically yesterday and left the
court smiling. "We love each other and we did this mainly as a
4 protest against income tax laws that penalize people for being
married," Hammond said. "But we are going to appeal this."
Their combined income of $18,000 was taxed $357 more because
they were married than if they had been single and living to-
gether, Hammond said.
Students are truants?

SNEW YORK-Letting istudents decide what they should learn
and how much they should study has not produced "free and
happy" students, but truants, dropouts and vandals, behaviorist
and educator B. F. Skinner declared yesterday. In accepting the
1972 Award for Creative Leadership in Education from the New
York University School of Education, the Harvard psychology
professor said, "The alternative to punishment is not permissive-
ness. We need alternative forms of control." According to Skinner,
a sheer love of learning does not make for student discipline. "He
plays truant as never before; he drops out of high school or takes
time off during his college career; and he attacks the very
teachers and vandalizes the very schools that have set him free,"
Skinner said.

Sheriff

calls affair political
By JONATHAN MILLER
Sheriff Douglas Harvey's methods for disposing of re-
covered stolen property are "illegal" but not "criminal,"
County Prosecutor William Delhey said yesterday.
At a news conference called to announce the results of
an investigation of Harvey, Delhey explained that although
the sheriff and several of his officers have "not complied with
the law with regard to the reporting of stolen property,"
they could not be prosecuted.
The reason, Delhey said, was that the statutes and pro-
cedures violated by, the sheriff carry no criminal sanctions.
"Everything that's criminal is illegal, but not everything
that's illegal is criminal;" Delhey, stated.
Although Delhey said he could not prosecute-and was
joined in the opinion by a-

representative of the state at-
torney general's office - he
did make sweeping criticisms
of Harvey's procedures, re-
leasing in detail the intrica-
cies of his month-long probe
into the sheriff's department.
Harvey later said that the fail-
ures to complytwiththe law were
"errors" and the result of over-
sights and filing mistakes by an
"overworked deputy."
Harvev said he would take full

doesn't accept pets or vehicles,
but if Saint Francis is what you
are looking for, he's waiting with
proverbial patience in the corner

more ordinary but equally or-
.phaned objects.
Helen Sohni, presides over the

scarves, books, umbrellas and
200 pairs of eyeglasses with con-
cern, sorting and dating articles
and, often, tracing their owners.
Her principle problem now is
the hundreds of eyeglasses that
have accumulated since last
September. "There must be a
lot of blind people walking
around," she says. Sightless stu-
dents are going to have to hurry
since the glasses will be sent to
a mission in New York after Nov.
10.
When dorm keys are lost, Sohni
sends them back to the residence

hall along with a slip that the
key's owner returns as a re-
ceipt.
"I want to make sure the resi-
dence halls don't go and charge
the students for a new key,"
she says with the ingrained sus-
picion any 27-year veteran of the
University must possess.
Most lost and found relics are
kept for sixty days and then
donated to various charities.
More valuable items, such as
jewelry, are kept for periods up
to two years. Owners of iden-
tifiable objects are notified by

turn detective to locate the
owner.
"Once .a nun sent a fraternity
ring from Texas that she had
discovered in Puerto Rico," she
says. "The young man who'
owned it had changed his name,
but we finally traced him back
to Puerto Rico only to find that
he had moved to Texas in the
same town where the nun lived."
Sohni's hours in the lost and
found are often spent poring over
lists of names and checking out
addresses. In the past she has
resorted to handwriting analysis
-comparing the letter formations
on book covers with student sig-
natures on their registration-
naires.
The lost and found also has

mysterious envelope "containing
a substantial sum" that was
found last spring. Students are
often reluctant to turn in cash.

shove in the direction of the
SAB, heed this: If the owner
does not claim the object within
60 days, the person who turned

Sohni says, "It's a terrific way
of getting rid of things."

Dennis Livingston is a self-pro-
claimed "consultant in education
for alternative* world futures," but
dedicated science fiction fans know
him as a sci-fi proselytizer.
Calling himself the "Johnny Ap-
pleseed of Futurology," Livingston
has been touring the country to
spread the word and recently spoke
here.
"Science fiction is the literature
of alternate social visions," he
says.
"It's reactionary in the cultural
values it presents" and is, accord-
ing to Livingston, thus well re-
ceived by "third world and sub-
culture peoples."
Livingston feels that "sci-fi is

culture that allows us to step back:
and see ourselves." -
The sci-fi enthusiast is a political
science PhD who spends much of-
his time reviewing and analyzingt
science fiction. Although he hasn't
written any himself, he's written
many articles on sci-fi's applica-
tions and implications.
Livingston favors science fiction
that espouses the idea that the fu-
ture need not be a continuation of
the present.
He chides the traditional ideas
of science fiction-that of the de-
creasing quality of life in a global-
industrial culture - as merely a
"technocratic view of today, extra-
polated into the future."
Societies can choose "alternative
mythologies" according to Living-
ston, thus changing their self-con-
cept'and altering their destiny.
"This concept of social change,"
he says, "leaves history up for
grabs."
Peering out from behind horn'
rimmed glasses that appeareddto
be upside down, Livingston dis-
cussed leading sci-fi authors. He
contrasts Kurt Vonnegut's "Player
Piano" and many of Isaac Asi-
mov's "distopias" - anti-utopias -
with the traditional utopian out-
look in sci-fi.
Livingston says he feels that
science fictionshas much to offer
towards both developing the mind
and increasing social awareness.

-studies of possible and probable
national and international futures,
trends influencing theiroutcome;
-Science fiction-a study of im-
ages of alternative futures in fic-
tion;
-Utopies-the study of the re-
vival of utopian social change
movements in our time; and
-Science, technology, and so-
ciety-the study of the impact of
science and technology on society.
