Water woes
West Quad residents had to eat off paper plates with plastic silver-
ware Monday night due to a water main break that cut off hot water ser-
vice to the Union, South Quad and West Quad. University security said it
would be fixed by 9 p.m. that night. The plates tended to get soggy from
the spaghetti sauce, one West Quaddie complained. "Did you ever try to
eat spaghetti with a tiny plastic fork?" he added.

Tennis
By PETER SHAW
Watch out when Chris Greendale
steps on the tennis court. The 30-year-
old University student was declared the
world's second fastest tennis ball ser-
ver last August at the National Fast
Serve Championships in New York
when his serve was clocked at 134
m.p.h.
He missed first place by only 1 m.p.h.
The New Zealand native came to the
United States on a National Collegiate
Athletic Association (NCAA) scholar-
ship and is now attending law school at
the 'U'.
GREENDALE CLAIMS that to serve
with such velocity, one "can't hit the
ball with any spin." He said the
amazing serve is more natural than
anything, however, and is not likely to
be built up through intense practice.
Chris strings his Yonex racket at a
"tighter than hell" 64 pounds.
With this great "nautral" ability,
why did Greendale abandon the pro cir-
cuit five years ago? Renowned power
server Roscoe Tanner has been clocked
only at a "relatively slow" 125 m.p.h.
and Colim Dibly's 130 m.p.h. is the
closest any pro can come to Green-
dale's serve.
Greendale says he was "feeling
somewhat dissatisfied ... intellectually
bored." He added that only about the
top twenty tennis professionals are

server packs
really doing well financially. Greendale
is much more concerned about getting
ahead "on a long term basis," and this
he is working on by attending law
school.
WITH HIS AMAZING serve, Green-
dale can "peel off some aces fairly
quickly" and leave his opponents
swinging at the breeze, but he feels that
"confidence is absolutely supreme on{.
the court," and the "biggest thing is the
intimidation factor."
What does a man who has played
competitive doubles with John Alexan-
der, beaten a guy who was semi-finalist
at the U.S. Open and Wimbleton and
been friends with Guillermo VIlas
suggest to aspiring athletes with visions
of fame and fortune?
Greendale, who strongly feels that
everyone should be involved in
athletics, said, "When a kid is good
enough where he has to make a decision
between whether to have a sports
career, that person has to be absolutely
dedicated to the endeavor. A half-
hearted decision is to make no decision
at all.
Interested players who want to see
the world's second fastest tennis ball
server in action should try to catch
Greendale at the Liberty Racket Club.
He, tries to keep in shape there with a
few friends. Just look for the court with
all the scorched tennis balls lying
around.

Detroit suburbs still
fearful of child killer

BIRMINGHAM (AP)-Exactly two
years ago, a killer with the macabre tag
of "The Baby Sitter" claimed the first
of his four victims in the prosperous
suburbs north of Detroit.
And although warnings continue
through 13 communities, some say that
time may be soothing fears that the
killer will claim a fifth victim.
It's been nearly a year since "The
Baby Sitter"-who got the nickname
because of the care he lavishes on the
children he kills-grabbed his fourth
victim, 11-year-old Timothy King.
THE KING BOY and the first slain
child, Mark Stebbins, 12, were sexually
assaulted, while the other victims -
Kristine Mihelich, 10; and Jill Robin-
son, 12 - weren't. The' Robinson girl
was shot, the others were suffocated.
The victims, authorities said, who
had been kept fr'om three to 19 days,
were bathed, fed, and manicured.
Some of the warnings issued in the
last year are becoming part of daily
life. Diane Benson, director of Common
Ground, ascounseling center, said her 7-
year-old son won't go swimming by
himself, although he "certainly knows
what to do" if a stranger tries to talk to
him.
AT THE ROYAL Oak Boys' Club,
program director Richard Scheid
reported that a youngster ran inside
one night and reported that two
strangers in a car were trying to pick
him up.
"It turns out the kid had thrown a

snowball at the car, and they stopped
because of that," Scheid says.
After initial confusion, Common
Ground and other organizations have
settled on a simple, two-point rule for
children: don't speak to strangers
trying to talk to you, and run to a safe
place: a house, the store you just left, the
fire station you just passed.
THE WARNINGS appear throughout
Oakland County. A fast food chain prin-
ts them on placemats; they are on the
sides of milk cartons sold in super-
markets; thousands of T-shirts with
special slogans have been sold, and
social workers and psychologists visit
school classrooms.
Some say the warnings may not
prevent another killing.
"I'm not that impressed with some of
these programs," says Emmanual
Tannay, a psychiatrist whom police
have consulted about "The Baby Sit-,
ter."
"IF HE ATTEMPTS to strike, he's
going to strike," Tannay said. "In the
meantime, there's a certain psychic
aspect to consider.
"Sure, it's a dangerous situation," he
added, "but if you overdo it the war-
nings you may be breeding paranoia."
Parents that Tannay talks to "bring
the killer no less now. But the fear was
like an epidemic . . . last year."
Some adults speculate the killer is
trying to lull the community into a sen-
se of security before striking again.
Others say the killer is just "tem-
porarily out of order" while perhaps
jailed on another charge.

Superserver
Chris Greendale, the world's second fastest tennis ball server, follows through
on another lightning-fast swing at Ann Arbor's Liberty Racket Club. Greendale, r
won the title at the National Fast Serve Championships in New York last.,
August.

RAYMOND CHANDLER FESTIVAL
Wednesday, February 15
MURDER, MY SWEET
(Edward Dmytryk, 1944) 7 ONLY-AUD. A
DICK POWELL is one of the screen's best Morlowes in the film 6f Chandler's
FAREWELL, MY LOVELY. Director Dmytryk's lighting, effects, and sets visually
highlight Chandler's words as Marlowe helps a mastodon-sized thug find his
sweetheart. The recent remake with Robert Mitchum doesn't come close to this
one. "I regard this as the most successful film adaptation of any of my novels."
-Raymond Chandler. "It handles Chandler's extremely cinema-adaptable story
so well that if anything, it improves on the retelling."-TIME.
