Who says students are the only ones who don't care about what is
happening in the world? An LSA faculty meeting to discuss new
distribution requirements scheduled for Monday had to be cancelled
for lack of quorum. Not unusual, you say. Well, there must have been a
lot of professors with better things to do Monday afternoon. Only about
60 of the 1200 LSA faculty members bothered to show up. Shame on the
other 1140 of you.
Get ready to add another sorority to the long list claiming chapters
on campus. Alpha Omicron Pi has chosen to reactivate its chapter at
the University due to rising interest in sorority membership, higher
enrollment and increased activity within the sorority system. The
revived sorority will hold its rush and membership selection this
week. Interested women may sign up at the Panhellenic Office in the
... put your peanut butter and banana sandwich in a paper bag and
start the day with a Commission for Women meeting in the Regents
Room of the Administration Building at noon ... also at noon, trek
over to the International Center for information on European train
travel ... if you have a thermos full of borsht you might want to try
the brown bag lecture by Ludmilla Alekseyeva on "Human Rights
Movements in the Soviet Union" in the Rackham West Lecture Room
at noon ... at 4 p.m. the symposium continues its week-long run with
a lecture by Dr. Joseph Mikus on "Religious and National Identity in
Czechoslovakia" in Rackham Amphitheatre. . . also at 4, the MSA
Course Evaluation Project will hold a mass meeting for all new and
old staff people in the Student Counseling Office, 1018 Angell
Hall ... at 4 in the Pendleton Room there's a panel discussion on
"Yeats and the Politics of Culture". . . if you missed the noon time
lunches, The Campus Chapel will hold its midweek lunch and worship
at 7 p.m.... at 7:30, Prof. Zvi Gitelman speaks on "The Soviet Jewry
Movement and ite Relationship to Other Dissident Movements in the
USSR", in Rackham Amphitheatre. He'll be followed at 8:30 by An-
drew Fredynsky and "The Human Rights Culture in the
Ukraine" ... finally, a free film, "Salt of the Earth," will be shown at
9 in 126 East Quad. Have a nice day.
Do not disturb
If you want to pull false alarms, don't plan on doing it at East;
Quad. Resident Arbe Sheinker was so enraged by a recent epidemic of
weekend fire alarms that he posted a $5 reward for the apprehension
of the culprit. Residents on his hall joined the posse and have upped
the ante to $10. Alarm pullers beware. There's a price on your head.
On the outside...
Just keep repeating: I could live in New York, I could live in New
York. Then sit back and realize just how lucky you are to have been
granted the privilege of living in wonderful Ann Arbor and freezing
today instead of digging out of two feet of snow like they're doing in the
Big Apple. No consolation? Here's the bad news anyway. Today will be
partly cloudy with highs only in the upper teens. Lows will dip to near 5
below. Expect another day with the windchill factor near 25 below.

Although the starting gate has barely
opened, James Elsman says his politi-
cal expertise and philosophy already
make him a leader in the race for the
Democratic nomination to the U.S.
According to Elsman's estimates, he
can count on the 50,000 votes he pock-
eted in 1976, and expects to double that
number with new supporters. Those
votes, Elsman contends, put him
100,000 votes ahead of the other seven
candidates looking to fill the shoes of
I ask the
rest of the candidates to
Sen. Robert Griffin who has announced
his plans to retire from politics at the
end of this term.
During the 1976 race, when he ran on
only $15,000, Elsman raised the license
fee "kick-back" issue involving candi-
date Richard Austin, currently Michi-
gan's Secretary of State, which eventu-
ally cost Austin the election.
ELSMAN CHARGED Austin with
placing "friends" in positions as heads
of offices in his jurisdiction in order to
solicit money from workers at the
branches. Austin denied this and the
charges were never proven.
Elsman, a former University law
graduate and Daily editorial director,
says world peace is one of the most im-
portant issues facing the nation.
Considering himself an independent
Democrat, Elsman said he brings a
new view into the senatorial race.
"I HAVE A zero-based, no assump-
tion philosophy," Elsman said. "I don't
take anything for granted and I don't
assume anything. I start with the
Elsman said he compares his philoso-
phy with President Carter's zero-base
budgeting, where each item is assessed
in accordance with its worth and value
to the people.
If he finds himself in the Senate seat
next year, Elsman said he will try to
use his philosophy to cut defense ex-
penditures, balance government, and
control the sometimes wasted aid to the
"I'VE SEEN a lot of money go down
rat holes," Elsman said. "I want to
know where its going and what it's
going to produce in reality."
Urban problems cannot be solved
merely by "throwing money at them,"
he said. He suggested that urban
projects be thoroughly assessed and
"It (aid) may do more bad than good,"
Elsman said of government projects to
revitalize the cities.
INFLATION IS another problem Els-
man said needs more governmental at-
Although. Elsman admitted he does
not hold the solutions to all of the
world's problems, he said the only way
answers can be found is to ask ques-
tions, adding, "I've got more questions
Others officially in the Democratic

"I consider myself a front-runner,"
said Elsman, who declared his candi-
dacy only last week. "I ask the rest of
the candidates to catch me."
THE 41-YEAR-OLD Birmingham at-
torney, who failed in a 1976 primary bid
against now Sen. Donald Riegle, said he
has regrouped his supporters and ex-
pects to launch an estimated $100,000
