Sell out-
If music soothes the savage beast, we're going to have some
awfully unsettled ape-types kicking around Ann Arbor this Spring. The
University Musical Society has just announced that there are no
longer any tickets left for this season's May Festival. According to the
society's president, Gail Rector, "The extremely heavy series sale in
the three weeks since the announcement of the festival is unpreceden-
ted in the 85-year history of the festival." Rector said it is possible
some single tickets for the April 27 and 28 concerts which feature
Eugene Ormandy conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra, may be
available-otherwise, you'll have to sit the MayFes out. Rector said
all of the season pass requests have been fulfilled. Call 665-3717 for in-
formation about the Ormandy performances.
Happenings . .
begin with "The Tale of Oniroku," a performance by the
Performing Puppet People at 2:30. The show, which is an adaptation
of a Japanese folktale, will be held at the Ann Arbor Public Library,
343 S. Fifth Ave. ... shake off the snow and shake your booty at a
square dance, 8-12 tonight, at Hillel, 1429 Hill St. The daice is spon-
sored by the Students for Israel and will feature a live string band
... we thought February was just on the horizon, but UAC tells us
they're throwing a New Year's Eve party tonight. If you believe them,
show up at the Union Ballroom at 9 p.m. with $1 for admission and let
the good times roll. Cyprus will provide the music, and intoxicants can
be purchased.. . if you would like to go cross-country skiing Sunday-
and we can't imagine what else you'd do in this snow-call Cordelia at
668-6286 to make arrangements to go along on the Outing Club's trip to
Peach Mountain . ., happy slaloming.
What kind of fool is he?
"A bank robbery? In Juneau, Alaska? You gotta be kidding
me!" That's what everyone else thought too when word spread that a
middle-aged man with a revolver tried to hold up the National Bank of
Alaska in the 49th state's capital. It's not that Alaskans are any more
righteous than us continental U.S.ers, it's just that a man in Juneau,
Alaska has about as much chance of escaping a crime as Nixon has of
re-election. The old gold-mining town of 17,000 residents has only 50
miles of roads, none of which leads anywhere. The city is surrounded
by water and glacial mountains. The only way out of Juneau is by boat
or by air on one of the six commercial flights departing daily. In fact
it's so tough to complete a heist in Juneau that the city's last bank rob-
bery occurred in 1932; the robber was later shot on the sidewalk in a
pistol duel with the bank cashier. When Police Chief James Barkley
found out about Thursday's robbery, he laughed: "He's either in-
credibly dumb or incredibly smart and knows some way out of this
town that I don't."
On the outside
Conditions will ease up today and tomorrow. Winds, which have
caused massive drifting over the past few days, will settle down to 10-
15 miles per hour. Skies will be partly cloudy today and Sunday with
possible scattered snow flurries both days. High temperature should
hit 24 degrees and the low tonight will be near 7 degrees.
What's new?
Dial N for News. Not today, but within the next 100 years news-
people are predicting that a simple call to your home-computer ter-
minal will bring the news in from the doorstep and on to a video
screen. 'We're going to hear more about news on demand in which our
readers can call the newspapers' computer and determine the latest
weather or sports scores or receive summaries of any hundreds of
subjects," said H. L. Stevenson, United Press International editor in
chief to Tennessee presspeople on Thursday. Stevenson also
prophesized that newspapers will become smaller and more slick,
resembling magazine formats gearted to individual readers' tastes.


Skiers warned of hidden perils

CONCORD, N.H. (AP)-Emergency
room staffs and orthopedic surgeons
warn that severe cross-country skiing
injuries are increasing because skiers
underestimate the dangers of the sport.
"The idea of slowly plodding through
the soft snow creates an impression of
false safety and they think you can't get

country areas. "Since the first of the
year we've treated 15 cross-country ac-
cidents and some of them have been
very, very serious," said Carol Ed-
munds, an emergency room nurse
"They think that because you're going
much slower, you won't get hurt, but

. . must be modernized, updated to
match the safety factor of the downhill
gear." he said.
The cross-country binding holds the
shoe to the ski, and can twist-or snap-
a skier's leg in a fall. downhill ski bin-
dings break free of the skis in a tumble.
"The bindings are well-designed to

move straight ahead and on level
ground. The problems start when the
skier confronts a hill," Porter said.
"People must understand what the
skis will and won't do," said Dr. James
Edmond, emergency room directorat
Maine's Rumford Community Hospital

all the details there is a magnificent performance of Carol Kane as the

the end."-Vincent Canby.

sometimes dangerous, but shows that the sport-if practiced--can be handled

wrong. Very wrong," said Dr. Robert
IN THE current issue of the Journal
of the American Medical Association,
Porter and Dr. John Lyons, both of,
Hanover's Mary Hitchcock Hospital,
said cross-country skiing is not as safe
as assumed.
Porter catalogued these injuries:
broken legs, ankles and arms,
dislocated shoulders and hips, and a
variety of torn ligaments.
Few hospitals divide skiing injuries.
into cross-country or down hill
categories, but a spot check of hospitals
in Maine, Vermont and New Ham-
pshire, that do keep such figures in-
dicates many people are injured while
cross-country skiing.
IN ANN .ARBOR, however, Univer-
sity and st. Joseph Hospital staffers
said cross-country skiing injuries are
minimal, with the two emergency
rooms seeing about 3 to 4 skiers a week.
Most of the doctors said weather ex-
posure and ankle injuries are the most
common ailments.

Miss Edmunds said.
Ski store operators agree. "They
come in, buy the skis and rush out to the
nearest patch of snow-covered ground,
thinking they know all they need to
know about skiing," said a Portland,
Maine, merchant. "But two-thirds of

who has been skiing for 35 years, says
important changes should be made in
cross-country equipment. "The design.
