Blizzard blankets East Coast


While a Guild House luncheon was waiting for speaker Sarah Power
yesterday, noted man-about-Diag Richard "Dr. Diag" Robinson en-
tertained the group with a nutty tale. Since the whole "Dr. Diag"
thing began, Robinson said, he has made the acquaintance of several
Ann Arbor squirrels. One of the bushy-tails once leaped on a bench
next to Robinson during his Diag diologue, he said, and began a chirpy
imitation of the good Doctor. When one Guild house guest suggested
Robinson may be the modern-day Francis of Assiss, another pointed
out-loand behold-a squirrel sitting outside peering through the win-
dow at Robinson. Guess nuts of a feather flock together.

A bitter shroud of snow and ice buried

While Floridians were mopping up af-

snow shovels up north were worth their
weight in gold, and snow shoes and skis
were an ideal mode of transit.
MORE THAN A FOOT of paralyzing
snow fell overnight from Maryland to
Maine and inland to Ohio and Kentuc-
ky. Cincinnati had a record 16 inches in
24 hours. The National Weather Service
predicted the snow would turn to sleet
and freezing rain and continue into the
weekend. Flooding was feared.
Transportation was stalled through-
out the region; Airports, roads and
highways were blocked and closed;
motorists were stranded; train service
was curtailed or halted; buses were
Business was almost at a standstill:
Bank ,holidays were declared, stores
and government offices were closed.
SCHOOLS WERE empty and the re-

collapsed roofs and a sense of help-
For millions, it was a snow-enforced

OFFICIALS FEARED that growing,
dagger-like icicles would plunge from
skyscrapers, and the spectacular new
Citicorp building on East 54th street
posed a bizarre hazard.
The street was closed because a one-
ton sheet of ice was poised on the north
side of the roof which had been built as
an experimental solar tower. It was
feared the ice could slide off and crush
pedestrians and motorists.
The storm eroded the nation's
business, as commodities, trading was
halted at all New York exchanges. The
New York and American stock ex-
changes opened late at noon.
IN BOSTON, six persons were re-
ported injured when a subway car ran
into another at an above-ground

station. In Boston Harbor, fierce winds
tore a freighter from its anchorage and
shoved it aground. Tugboats battled to
dislodge it but failed.
A barge carrying more than 6 million
gallons of crude oil was adrift off Atlan-

On the ice-clogged Ohio River, the

Up to 15 inches blanketed parts of

virtually everywhere. Tow trucks
worked nonstop to rescue stranded
motorists near Philadelphia.

Snowed out


Any of you who made the trek south to -Columbus last night to see
the Michigan roundballers in action against Ohio State, undoubtedly
know by now that the game was canceled. (Maybe you even informed
the Buckeyes.) Anyway; because Columbus was paralyzed by snow
yesterday the game was put off until Monday night, same time, same
place. Luckily, the Wolverines knew before they hit the road that it
was ixnay on the game. Good thing. Can you imagine a worse place to
spend a weekend?"

Bad apple
Johnny Rotten, the most
notorious bad apple of the
punk roch crusaders Sex
Pistols, has announced that
the British bad boys are split-
ting up. The 21-year-old Rot-
ten, who's leaving the group
for bigger and badder things,
said Thursday that the bandl
"doesn't exist at the moment,
as far as I'm concerned." The
news apparently took fellow
Pistol Sid Vicious by surprise,
for Vicious-whose real name
is John Ritchie--downed an
overdose of booze and pills
and passed out during an L.A.-
to-New York flight.
"Everybody thought he was
sleeping, which he was, but
when it came time to get off,
he was still sleeping," a
spokesperson for Trans World
Airlines said. The bass player

and a whole lot

Just to show you that there's more to the college newspaper business
than by-lines and bad grades, comes this item from San Francisco:
Two third-year law students at Hastings College of the Law have been
fined $2,250 by the school for allegedlt spending the student
newspaper's funds on cigars, champagne and a trip to the Bahamas.
The school dean said the fines were levied after an auditing firm
questioned expehditures made by former co-editors Larry Falk and
Sid Luscutoff. The expenses included: $181 for the printing of
engraved invitations for a party; $69.75 for cigars and tobacco; $56.50
for champagne for a party related to Luscutoff's candidacy for a
student office: $1,148.87 for food; $55 for dinner at Trader Vic's
restaurant; and $548 for expenses Luscutoff incurred on a trip to Min-
nesota, Florida and the Bahamas. Like we said, Join The Daily.
Crime does't pay, but it
sure tastes good
Only difference between Robin Hood and the 15-year-old boy who
stole a bakery truck stuffed with goodies Thursday, is that while Robin
gave to the poor, this hod sold his finds at a discount. The boy, whose
name was not released, made off with the truck which was idling on a
Manhatten street and then launched a four-hour romp through the city
dispensing cakes, bread, donuts and other baked delicacies at discount
prices. The boy, who last year spent time at a juvenile home for taking
a joyride in a stolen'Greyhound bus, was charged with grand larceny
and criminal possession of stolen property. Cut the nonsense, said city
cops; cut the cake, said the kid.
Money talks
From the when-I-went-to-school-I-walked-ten-miles-in-the-freezing-
cold . .. for free department, comes this news from New Milford, C
Conn. Seems the New Milford High School, beset with attendance
problems, has come up with a new bribe for the delinquent kiddies:
cold cash for the student with perfect attendance. Vice Principal
William Brokowski said the school has begun weekly cash lottery
drawings giving away $10 to a randomly selected student with perfect
attendance for the week. "Some people would consider this a slick
Madison Avenue-type approach, but it's part of my style, "Brokowski
said. Enough lottery wins, Bill, and maybe some of your students can
afford the University of Michigan next year.
On the outside ...*
Don't blame us, we only predict the weather. If we thought it
would do any good, we'd tell you to pull out the flip flops and
tuck in your belly for swin wear weather-but the mercury would
still only climb to 20* today, and the light snow showers would
still fall, and the cool winds would still whip at 10 mph, and the
temperature would still drop to 70. You could try it, hoverer. We
aren't stopping you.
