FYOUSEE NOV APPnCALL DWLY
Believe it or not, the state of Michigan celebrated its 141st birthday
yesterday-but hardly anyone knew it. In fact, aides in the Governor's
office did not even know yesterday was the day. All they remembered
was that 1837 was the year Michigan was admitted to the Unin. Since
no one gave the state a surprise party, it got back at us with a little
surprise of its own. No matter, happy(belated) birthday to the sun-
shine state of the midwest.

What makes milkmaids tipsier? Vodka. Soviet news sources an-
nounced this week that milk production at the Sadnikovsky State
Farm 60 miles west of Moscow is suffering because of frunk and disor-
derly milkmaids. Farm officials tried to hide this sad state of affairs
from a newspaper reporter, but the situation was.so bad that other
workers complained about the hapless cowgirls. "the milkmaids come
to work drunk and make scandals," said the reporter. "Two or three
groups of cows usually remain unmilked." And our more bovine
readers know just how painful that can be.
The Illustrated Woman
When Elizabeth Weinzirl of Minneapolis was in her 40s, her husband
told her he wanted a tattooed wife. So she did it-she got a tattoo. "I
got one and I thought that would do it," says Weinzirl, now 75. "But
then I wanted another one, and another one." A large black spiderweb
radiates from the Portland, Ore. woman's navel; at its edges colorful
parrots frolic among brilliant green scrollwork with bluebirds,
flowers. butterflies and other creatures. The pictures cover her entire
trunk, as well as her upper arms and legs. "Tattooing shouldn't be put
down," she says, "because it's an art."
On the outside ..
In Puerto Vallarta, there are little brown children running naked on
the beaches chasing bright-colored birds. The sun there is as hot and
pure as God's own angry' eyes, and the sea as warm as bathwater.
There is music in the palm trees, and the sidewalk vendors sell iced
drinks to thirsty gringos. At night, the stars throb to the beat of ancient
drums. But there are no drums in Muddville, nor in Ann Arbor. Snow,
wind and cold are the order of the day hereabouts: today's high is sup-
posed to be 16 degrees Fahrenheit (if we're lucky), and winds are ex-
pected to reach 50 to 60 mph. Stay inside, drink something warm, kill
the fatted calf. The poor sonofabitch is liable to freeze to death

DETROIT (UPI)-The American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will not

threatened with eviction from their
westside bookstore, the group said
Wednesday, unless their rights to free
speech are violated.
"Many of our members may become
so emotionally involved that they may TO
withdraw from membership if we take :
the case, but that's the price you pay for Michigan Daily
intellectual integrity," said Vesta
Svenson, Detroit ACLU chairwoman.
THE WEST SIDE bookstore, which
distributes pamphlets, books and WHEN: Tuesday-Sunday
buttons attacking blacks and Jews and mornings
advocating white supremacy, has
sparked protests and picketing since it
opened in mid-December.
Dennis Mullins, head of Nazi In- WHERE: Anywhere you

Detroit ACLU "a farce." He said the
Nazis will not be able to hire an attor-
ney for their hearing next Monday in
the landlord and tenant division of the
Common Pleas Court.

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP)-Black
and white negotiators were trying to
work out yesterday a time-scale for an
interim multiracial government to
oversee the planned transition to black
majority rule in Rhodesia.
Prime Minister Ian Smith reportedly
wants a period of two to three years.
The nationalist leaders, who claim sup-
port from four-fifths of Rhodesia's 6.4
million blacks, are under pressure to
produce a black government as
speedily as possible.
THE AGREEMENT, however, was
unlikely to end Rhodesia's five-
year guerrilla war since the
leaders of the militant Patriotic Front,
Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugaba,
oppose the Salisbury talks and have
vowed to continue the fight from Zam-
bia and Mozambique.
Smith predicted Wednesday that he
and the black leaders, Bishop Abel
Muzorewa, the Rev. Ndabaningi Sithole
and Sen. Jeremiah Chirau, would reach
broad agreement on majority rule
within a few weeks.
Sources said they already have
agreed to the principles of a new one
man, one vote constitution with
safeguards for Rhodesia's 268,000
whites for the first 10 years after the
establishment of a majority rule gover-
nment, including a parliamentary
The four leaders have now turned
their attention to the mechanics of for-
ming the interim multiracial ad-
ministration which would be charged
with drawing up the new constitution,

forces and organizing one-man, one-
ONE SOURCE said if there are no
snags over the time-scale for the in-
terim administration a plenary session
of the four leaders and their respective
political party delegations could be
called today. Smith also will brief his
50-member parliamentary caucus on
the talks today.
Any formal agreement reached bet-
ween Smith and the black nationalists
will require constitutional amendments
in the white-dominated Parliament to
allow the formation of the proposed in-

Once a new constitution is produced
its details will be put to the country's
white voters for approval. The whites
are expected to endorse any plan Smith
presents to them from the talks.
