Consumer Action Center Moves
The Washtenaw County Consumer Action Center has moved from its
old office in the County Building to a building at Fourth Avenue and
Catherine. Director John Knapp said the move was made to give the
Center more office space and because the district court administrator
took over the old office space in the County Building. The center han-
dles individual complaints and tries to mediate disputes as well as
handling criminal actions. It also doubles as a better business bureau,
since no such agency exists in the Ann Arbor area. Knapp says he tries
to promote consumer awareness through lectures, written media
presentations and circulating literature. The dentet employs 15
University students every semester through Project Outreach.

It seems our present climate is fit for neither lnan nor beast. (The
Daily has received unconfirmed reports that polar bears have been
seen migrating south). Well, things are getting worse, because on the
outside tomorrow it is going to be C-0-L-D! The mercury will reach a
high of 12 degrees and a low of -3. The wind chill index is hovering
around -25 to -30 degrees. Tomorrow's forecast calls for partly cloudy
skies and strong winds. Hold on to your hats.
