Rockin' robins
Ever wondered what becomes of the robin redbreast - our
messenger of spring and Michigan's state bird - during his annual win-
ter vacation? You may not want to know the tawdry truth. Every year,
hordes of migrating robins descend upon Fort Myers, Fla., to take advan-
tage of the sunshine, warm weather and other amenities - and to get
zonked out of their little gourds on fermented Brazilian pepper berries.
According to the Southwestern Florida Audubon Society, the juice of the
berries gets the birds "drunk as coots" - under its influence, they've
been known to perform weird aerial acrobatics, chase each other madly
along the ground, bang into solid objects and stagger happily from bran-
ch to branch. It's enough to make one start thinking about getting a new
state bird.
Homage to Crapper
It is regrettably common nowadays to ridicule our Victorian ances-
tors for their stuffy manners and straightjacket morality without re-
membering the substantial contributions they made to civilization as we
now know it. A case in point: today is Thomas Crapper Day, which com-
memorates (no shit) the British gentleman who in 1874 invented the flush
toilet. Crapper was never knighted for his historic discovery, but he did
live to see his name introduced into everyday English usage - both as a
nomiiative and as an active verb. It is only proper to remember pioneers
of his kind: when passing an outhouse, redolent with fumes and swarming
with flies, one should exclaim: "Three cheers for you, gallant Crapper!
There, but for you, go I."
On the outside...
Well, what do you expect, it's winter. Today will be just like yes-
terday (and the day before, and the day before that) with overcast skies
and scattered snow. The high will be about 230 and the low will dip to 180.
Tomorrow some sunshine is expected, but don't hold your breath.

Guilio Andreotti resigned in the midst AS A RESULT of the elections, the Andre
of economic turmoil, political violence
and a Communist drive for power in
this NATO country.
President Giovanni Leone scheduled
talks with political leadersitoday and is
expected to ask Andreotti, 59, the three-
time Christian Democrat premier, to
try to form a new government by Thur-
sday. But long and difficult negotiationsX
appeared certain.

THE UNITED STATES has strongly
opposed entry of the Communists in the
government where they would share
military information of the Atlantic
If a cabinet cannot be formed, elec-
tions for anew Parliament would have
to be held, but all parties oppose this.
Opinion polls indicate elections would
further polarize the country, in-
creasing support for the Christian
Democrats and Communists at the ex-
pense of the smaller parties.
In the past three years, 27 persons-
including four this year-have died in
political clashes. 'Most of the victims
were youthful members of extremist
groups, including the pro-fascist Social
Movement on the right and urban
guerrilla groups such as the Red
Brigades and Armed Proletariat on the
ANDREOTTI, WHO led a one-party
.minority government for 17 months,
resigned after it bacame clear that the
largest Communist party in Western
Europe, supported by Socialists and
Republicans, would no longer allow his -
government to continue.
To avoid the prospect of new elections
that could aggravate the political
crisis, the SChristian Democrat Party,
which has ruled Italy alone or in
coalition since 1945, must find a solution
acceptable to the left-cabinet posts for
Communist-approved independents, a
coalition including the Socialists, policy
concessions that would meet concerns
of the working class or some other for-
mula not yet aired publicly.
The Communists, led by the
Eurocommunist Enrico Berlinguer,
gained 34 per cent of the popular vote in
1976 elections, just four points short of
the Christian Democrats. Italian,
Frence and Spanish Communists in the
Eurocommunist movement avow they
are free of Kremlin domination and
claim they would participate-

of payments, $1 billion in the red in 1976,
recorded a $2 billion surplus in 1977,
helping to stabilize the lira.
These gains, however, were made
partly at the cost of stagnation and
rising unemployment, with nearly 2
million persons currently out of work.
The high incidence of unemployment
among youths-75 per cent of the
total-has contributed to the level of
political violence.
The Communists and their
parliamentary allies contend a
threatened breakdown of public order
makes it necessary for an "emergency
government" to be formed that would
include Communists.
THE U.S. State Department last
week restated American opposition to
any participation by the Communists in
the Italian government and urged a
reduction in their power. The statement
brought a wave of protests from the
leftists, who accused the United States
of heavy-handed intervention in Italian
international affairs.
The Soviet news agency Tass said
yesterday that Italy's political crisis
has been "aggravated by the overt in-
terference of the United States." And in
the Netherlands, the independent Rot-
terdam Daily Algemeen Dagblad also
accused the United States of interfering
in the internalaffairs of Italy. It said it
an editorial that without the Coin-
munists, Italy "would already have
been on the dangerous road to a new
fascist dictatorship."
Dictator Benito Mussolini was over-
thrown in July 1943. Since then Italy has
had 39 governments, 35 of them since
the end of the war.

^r rnm
talian Premier Guilio Andreotti brushes past reporters on his way to present
the resignation of his 17-month-old government yesterday. Andreotti's
resignation once more casts doubt on the future of the troubled Italian state.

Italian Communists won the presidency
of the Chamber of Deputies, the lower
house of Parliament, and kep posts on
parliamentary commissions, then
gained the backing of other paries to
force the EAndreotti government to ac-
cept their collaboration in the for-
mation of government polkicy in return
for abstentions in Parliament,
But the Communists, dissatisfied
with the government's implementation
of programs and worried about possible
loss of popular support, decided last
week to end their cooperation with An-
dreotti's government and try for their
long-sought goal of a "historic com-
promise" that would allow them to
share power with the Christian
Democrats. Two smaller parties, the
Socialists and the Republicans, backed
that strategy.
In addition to political turmoil, Italy
also is faced with economic troubles,
including industrial stagnation,:
frequent strikes, a high cost of living

to make some gains economically. The
rate of inflation, which had climbed to
22 per cent early in 1977, was down to 14
per cent by December. Italy's balance

If not the "ultimate" as in the advertising, 2001 is certainly the ultimate cinematic
experience and the most original, mind-blowing vision to hit the big screen.
Less than 46 of the film's 141 minutes are taken up by dialogue; the rest features
the stunning, much acclaimed special effects. One year and many million of
dollars make this a movie that can't be seen too many times. Keir Dullea,
HAL. Cinemascope.
Truly a classic horror film; CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI was the
* first film of the German Expressionists. The distortive, angular-
sets intensify a 'simple' story of a county fair, and one of its I
attractions-a sonambulist.
