SLEAZE. LET the word drip off your
tongue, like a grease-saturated gob
of cheese sliding off a slice of Mr.
Tony's pizza, striking the floor with a
disgusting splatter. Sleeeeeaze.
I protest. The cult of sleaze, the pur-
suit of sleaze, the birth and destruction
of sleaze, the significance of sleaze in
our society-all of this has been
overlooked in the creation of courses at
this University, which seems hell-bent
on maintaining standards of good taste.
But why? Does no one recognize the
importance of sleaze in our lives, its
omnipresence? Does no one care? Is
there no justice?
We encounter sleaze every day, and it
is vital that we understand its nature. It
would be nice to see the Sociology
department offer a course on the sub-
ject, and I can offer some guidelines
right now on how it could be structured.
It could be set up in a very elementary
fashion, each lecture dealing with a dif-
ferent manifestaion of the phenomena:

movies-nothing but shallow facades of
sleaze. True sleaze is something like
Toledo, a bottle of Ripple, Meijer's
Thrifty Acres, or the Detroit bus ter-
minal.
Sleaziness is necessary, though, in
maintaining a well-balanced society,
and that is why the current status of
sleaze in Ann Arbor has me worried. It
appears to be experiencing a sudden,
frightening decline. Downtown is being
renovated. Remember "The Strip,"
that block of fourth-rate bars and pool
halls on Ann St. across from the county
jail? Sad to say, it is gone now. It used
to be fun to terrify newcomers to the
area with warnings like "My God,
whatever you do, don't go down to 'The
Strip'! And if you've got to walk by
there, keep your money in your sock."
Oh sure, we still have The Flame, but
it's not like the good ol' days. Progress
is invading Ann Arbor, destroying the
delicate ecological balance which
allows for a certain amount of low life.
Next thing you know, the whole place
will look as repulsively respectable as
Bloomfield Hills or Salt Lake City or
Kansas or something. So appreciate the
sleaze we have left. And savor the
word, like the taste of a fine wine rolling
over the tongue. Sleeeeeeaze.

Guess the words defined at the
left and write them in over
their numbered dashes. Then,
transfer each letter to the cor'
responding numbered square
in the grid above. The letters
printed in the upper-right-hand
corners of the squares indi-
cate from what clue-word a
particular square's letter
comes from. The grid, when
filled in, should read as a
quotation from a published
work. The darkened squares
are the spaces between words.
Some words may carry over
to the next line. Meanwhile,
the first letter of each guessed
word at the left, reading down,
forms an acrostic, giving the
author's name and the title of
the work from which the quote
is extracted. As words and
phrases begin to form in the
grid, you can work back and
forth from clues to grid until
,he puzzle is complete.

tion Program
Then, just four months ago, the FBI.
responded to journalists' requests un-
der the Freedom of Information Act
and released 53,000 pages of heavily
censored documents pertaining to all
seven Cointel programs.
The last of seven Cointelpro
operations to be initiated, Cointelpro-
New Left was conceived in a Bureau
memo from the head of the Domestic
Intelligence Division, C. D. Brennan,
who had responsibility for the project,
to his boss William Sullivan.
Brennan's note, dated May 9, 1968,
begins: "Our nation is undergoing an
era of disruption and violence caused to
a large extent by various individuals
generally connected with the New Left.
Some of these activists urge revolution
in America and call for the defeat of the
United States in Vietnam. They con-
tinually and falsely allege police
brutality and do not hesitate to utilize
unlawful acts to further their so-called
causes."
THE ORDER TO BEGIN THE
intensive campaign against
the New Left was hastily sent
to all 59 FBI field offices the
very next day. The directive, written in
dry, bureaucratic prose, never
questions the legality-not to mention
the morality-of the projects about to
be launched. The directive ignores im-
posing limits to the program with one
exception-the bureau should not be
revealed as the source of any operation.
"The purpose of this program is to
-Xpose, disrupt, and otherwise neu-
:ralize the activities of the various
New Left organizations, their leader-
ship and adherents," the directive
laid out.
"The devious maneuvers and du-
plicity of these activists must be ex-
posed to public scrutiny . . . We
must frustrate every effort of these
groups and individuals to con-
solidate their forces or to recruit
new or youthful adherents. . . No
opportunity should be missed to
capitalize upon organizational and
personal conflicts of their leader-
ship.''
W HILE ANTI-WAR activists
generally agreed the gov-
ernment was meddling
with their affairs, there
was tremendous discussion about the
extent of covert operations against
them and how to handle it.
"A lot of people felt that their own
personal neurosis was responsible
for the disintegration of the move-
ment, when in fact, they were being
exploited by the FBI," said the
well-known political activist and poet

initial inspiration for "Lives of the
Saints" is as remarkable as the work it-
self: "The actual poem came simply
and directly. I had consciously sat down
to write with (as usual) nothing con-
sciously in mind. I was listening to a
Mozart sonata. A windswept rain began
outside the window. I thought, senti-
mentally, of Mozart, who had offered so
much of himself, his vulnerability,
buriedin a pauper's grave. 'Thisis the

pages of Cointelpro-New Left docu-
ments, only two-thirds have been
released for public scrutiny. Coll
maintains that the withheld docu-
ments "contain classified informa-
tion exempted (from disclosure)
under provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act, such as information
which in and of itself divulges names
and operations currently being car-
ried 'on by the Bureau and might
endanger lives."
"Every file has not been released,"
said the Assistant Special Agent in
Charge of the Detroit FBI office, H.
Ernest Woodby. "That's the type of
thing that makes the Freedom of
Information Act very incomplete,
and how can you really know if it's
complete . . . all you get is bits and
pieces of information and that's why
it's very difficult to work from an
historical perspective."
E VEN IF the agency bares all,
the FBI's seemingly haphaz-
ard filing system precludes'
piecing together enough frag-
ments for an accurate portrait of the
second line, stolen from an earlier,
failed Chopin poem: Sheering to
glissandi'."
The writers who responded to Tur-
ner's inquiry generally manage to
overcome the handicap of her mundane
questions, and their often provocative
answers transcend the term paper
organization of the book. A more
thoughtfully conceived and executed
work could easily have bordered on the
superb, but the unique insights that 50

that the FBI disclosures may be only
scratching the surface. George Gro-_
setti is an attorney representing a
statewide consumer group suing for
full disclosure of the activities of the
Detroit and Michigan "red squads".
These two police intelligence units
conducted their own covert disrup-
tion campaigns against political
groups in the state and aided the FBI.
"According to documents made
available to us through the suit,"
Grosetti said, "the (Michigan) "red,
squads" worked intimately with the
FBI. But many . . . (of their) docu-
ments which were turned over to the
inklings---
(Continued from Page 6)
"Articulate" is another word for
joining together words and other
such things. "Comprehend" means
"to hold together." "Cogent" means
to "drive together." "Harmony" is a
"fitting together", a "joining." "Jus-
tice" - from Latin and Greek all the
way back to the Sanskrit "yu" -
says the same kind of thing.
"Reconcile." That means "to call
all the pieces back together with the
voice" - with words.
WORDS. As a very young man,
Yeats wrote that "Words alone:
are certain good." They are indeed
good. Language is our first knowl-
edge as humans, the source and
record of our humanity. Language
tells us, over and over, to love each
other: to come together, to be radical
and wise, to entertain ourselves and
create the universe. ("Entertain?"
