Deadline extension
The LSA student government (LSA-SG) has extended until Jan. 25
the deadline for applying for appointment to any of the literary
college's governing committees (academic judiciary, admissions,
administrative board, curriculum, student-faculty policy board). The
date was extended because no one applied for the positions before the
old deadline.

EMDEN, West Germany (AP)-The
last Volkswagen Beetle sedan, Nazi dic-
tator Adolph Hitler's legacy that helped
Germans beef up their post-war
economy, rolled off a German assem-
bly line yesterday.
Since Daimler Benz made the first 30
prototype Beetles designed by Fer-
dinand Porsche 40 years ago,
Volkswager built 19.2 million Beetles to
surpass the previous production record
of 15,007,034 set by Henry Ford's Modet
T in the late 1920s.
THE BEETLE continues to be
produced in Mexico, Brazil, South
Africa and Nigeria. Models sold here
now will say "Made in Mexico."
The first shipload arrived two weeks
ago at the same Emden pier from
which thousands of German-made
Beetles left to begin their successful in-
vasion of the United States.
West German lines are still making a
limited number of Beetle convertibles
in nearby Osnabrueck. Besides Rolls-
Royce's expensive Corniche, they are
the only four-seater convertibles in
production.
AT AGE 55, Porsche, better known
today for the expensive sportscar that
bears the name, hired six people in 1930
to begin work on his dream, an inex-
pensive auto, that most German
families could afford.
Porsche developed the un-
mistakeable outlines of the Beetle on
the basis of. Chrysler's streamlined
cars,l which had impressed him on a
visit to the United States in the early
1930s.
He tried unsuccessfully to mass-
produce his design, and in 1934 he wrote
Hitler to propose "construction of a
German Volkswagen" people's car
with state support. A friend from
Daimler Benz arranged a meeting.
Hitler and Porsche, both native
Austrians, got on well, and Hitler gave
state financing to the scheme.

DAIMLER BENZ, which had long
been making its Mercedes-Benz cars,
was chosen to produce the prototypes.
Test drivers from the SS elite guard
put. the Beetle through its paces,
driving 2.4 million test kilometers in,
1937 and 1938, much of it over the new
autobahns, another of Hitler's favorite
projects.
Porsche called the car he produced as
a result of these tests Type 38, the basic
Beetle that has since been modified
more than any other automobile and
yet never lost its characteristic shape.
FARMLAND near Brunswick was
chosen for Volkswagen's factory. With
plans based on American architectural,
and technical advice, Hitler laid the
foundation stone May 26, 1938, at what
is now Wolfsburg.
A Nazi Party's welfare organization
organized a savings plan to finance the
huge undertaking. A German worker
was promised his car as soon as he
saved 990 marks ($472 dollars at
present rates), then the price of a
medium-sized motorcycle.
World War II put a stop to the
scheme. Civilian production plans were
stopped, and the car was modified to
become Germany's equivalent of the
U.S. Army jeep. Between 1939 and 1945,
the plant churned out several hundred
thousand cars with air-cooled, four-
cylinder engine.
WHEN HITLER'S Reich crumbled in
1945, the Beetle plant was in ruins. The
British military government appointed
Heinrich Nordhoff, a former Opel truck
plant manager, to take over
management of Volkswagen.
The Peopl's car was finally available
to the people in 1949. The Wolfsburg
plant produced Beetles untilit switched
over to Rabbits and other more modern
designs on July 1, 1974. A limited
production of about 100 a day continued
at the Emden plant until Thursday.

SILENT MOVIE
(Mel Brooks, 1976) 7, 8:40, & 10:20-MLS 3
Mel Brooks amazingly keeps topping himself. Mel (Brooks) Funn, a reformed
alcoholic movie director on the comeback trail, Marty (Feldman) Eggs, and
Dom (Deluise) Bell convince producer Sid Caesar to finance a silent comedy
with big name stars (Paul Newman, Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, et al). Bril-
liant, brilliant visual gags. A film so rich in invention it would make five
movies by anyone else. "Brooks is one of our few authentic mad poets."

EAST LANSING (UPI}-Jolted by a
series of attempted stabbings and their
school's No. 1 ranking in a recent FBI
campus crime survey, female students
at Michigan State University are in-
creasingly wary about roaming this
picturesque, tree-lined campus alone.'
Signs urging caution are seen
hanging in the dormitories and many
fstudents are organizing buddy systems
for walking to night classes.
CRIME IS becoming the talk of the
campus.
"You can't constantly be escorted
around the campus, but you can take
well-lighted routes and keep away from
secluded areas," said 18-year-old
ChristineDemas while she waited for
her sister to pick her up at the library.
Campus security officials claimed
fears like these are exaggerated and
that the FBI survey, which covered 160
campuses, does not accurately coev the
situation at MSU.
OTHER SURVEYS, which take into
account MSU'S unusually large on-
campus population, show crime is
relatively low here, they said.
Published reports about the FBI
crime statistics said MSU had more
reported serious crimes-1,789-than
any other participating institution in
1976. Most of the crimes were larcenies
and thefts, although there were 17 rapes
and attempted rapes.
Concern for the situation was
heightened this week by three attem-
pted stabbings of young womerr. Police
believe all were the acts of one man.
