Food notes
There are some things you will need to know if you are in
the habit of going out to eat in the campus area. One of the few
24-hour eateries is no longer open around-the-clock. Biff's has
been taken over by new management and according to one of
the waitresses it features "smaller hamburgers, lower prices
and no dinners." Hours are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. . . . For those of
you who eat at Betsy Ross in the arcade, they will be closed
starting tomorrow until they clean up a few code violations.
Free space
To those of you who migrate to the UGLI this time each
term: Student Government Council member Bill Dobbs has an-
nounced free office desk space to anyone who wants it. Dobbs
lists the central campus location, usually quiet atmosphere
bookshelf and phone service among the SGC office's attractions.
As a fringe benefit, "You can rub elbows with high level bureau-
crats, and see sandbox government in action." "No one one uses
my desk," says Dobbs, who works elsewhere. "The University
pays high rent for these facilities. It should be used by the stu-
dents who pay for it." Dobbs invites readers to call 763-3241 or
761-6096 and ask for "little" Bill.
Volunteers needed
Project Community needs volunteers for an income tax as-
sistance program. Volunteers will be trained at the beginning of
January to assist low income people in filling out their 10-40 tax
form. The program will run from Jan. 18 to April 22 and will be
located at the Model Cities Community Skill Center and the
Community Center on North Main St. For information, call Pro-
ject Community at 763-3548.

Death notes
FLORIDA-The sunshine state has become the first state in
the nation to restore the death penalty through legislative action.
Gov. Reubin Askew signed the bill into law Friday. California
voters in November restored the death penalty to certain cases
that were already on the statute books. Florida is the first
state to pass new death penalty stautes since the Supreme Court
declared capital punishment as then applied unconstitutional on
June 29.
Pope notes
VATICAN CITY-Pope Paul VI characterized "true" wo-
men's liberation yesterday as recognizing women's essential
role in life: to become a mother. He condemned abortions as{
"abominable crimes" calling it a "false and dangerous distor-
tion of the otherwise proper desire of women to be emancipated."
He was speaking before the Italian Catholic Union of Jurispru-
Nazi notes
WEST BERLIN-Forensic experts here are waiting for the
dental records of Martin Bormann, Hitler's powerful deputy, to
compare them with the teeth of two skulls which could solve the
27-year mystery surrounding the fate of the worlds most wanted
Nazi. Two days ago workers discovered two almost complete
skeletons near the site where Bormann was last seen in May,
1945. Police say the bones are at least 20 to 30 years old. Bor-
mann has been in the news because the London Daily Express
has printed a series claiming Bormann is alive and well in
Latin America.
Dope notes
HERMOSILLO-Authorities burned more than 27 metric tons
of marijuana, 13 pounds of heroin and nearly 35 pounds of
cocaine Friday. Assistant attorney general David Franco Rod-
riguez, the top man in Mexico's antidrug force, presided over
the bonfire. The drugs were confiscated during recent months
by police agencies.







Westwood quits after
surviving ouster vote
By the Associated Press, UPI and Reuters
The Democratic National Committee yesterday elected
conservative Texas lawyer and former Democratic Party
treasurer Robert Strauss to the post of national chairman.
Strauss' selection came after former chairwoman Jean
Westwood resigned her post after beating back an earlier
effort to remove her from that position.
The final vote tally read: Strauss 1061/2, George Mitchell
of Maine 714, and Harold Manatt of California 26.
Westwood, the party's first chairwoman, garnered 105
votes against the opposition's*-

oust her yesterday. However,

In the current City Council de-
bate on the question of banning
non-returnable bottles, a number
of people, including Mayor Robert
Harris have taken the position that
reusable bottles are not economic-
ally feasible.
The credibility of that argu-
ment has been dealt a severe blow,
however, by the experience of the
state of Oregon with this same is-
Despite predictions from busi-
ness interests that mandatory de-
posits would cut sales drastically,
the state went ahead and passed
a law October 1, 1972, requiring
deposits on all beer, ale and soft
drink containers.
Contrary to the dire warnings,
there was at47 perdcentrincrease
in beer sales over figures for the
previous October.
"It's just simply working," said
Rich Chalmers, a Salem, Oregon
resident who has been working on
the issue for approximately four
years. "There's no hassle. You can
walk into any store and buy any
brand in returnable containers,"
he said.
Also, added "Chambers, "Beer
prices have not gone up, in fact,
they've gone down."
"Cheap beer is no longer avail-
able in cans," Chambers explain-
ed, "because it's too expensive.
It costs over five cents to produce
ia 12 ounce can, and only three
and one-half cents to produce an
11 ounce bottle. Naturally the less
expensive bottled beer is bought
Another interesting aspect of the
Oregon situation is that "throw-
away glass is a thing of the
past," according to Chamber's.
"The only reason for throw-away
glass containers," Chambers con-
tinued, "was to compete with the
can. That competition no longer
