Hat -trick .
To Buckeye fan Reggie Rose, the November 19 Michigan-Ohio State
game was mote that just:a football loss. Known as "Captain Ohio",
Rose came to Arn Aibor sporting his treasured OSU hat of many but-
tons. During the game, a zealous Wolverine fan appropriated the cap
for his own purposes. Captain Ohio, a 1972 Ohio State grad, went to
great lengths to regaim his hat including appearing on.a WRCN radio
talk show, writing our own President Fleming and offering a $50
reward. Finally the culprit, a Wolverine fan who calls himself the
"Maize and Blue Streak" suggested a bargain: in order to regain his
prized possession, Roe must appear in the Ohio State Lantern, the
student newspaper, grbed in a 1978 Michigan Rose Bowl T-shirt. The
day after the photo gpeared, Captain Ohio got his hat back. Unfor-
tunately (or fortunatly, depending on the way you look at it) it was
not the same hat. Mbch to Rose's chagrin, several of the 25 buttons
pinned on his cap ha been replaced by Michigan buttons. Lucky Rose
also received a Mihigan T-shirt from the "Streak" as well as a
promise of a beer 'hen the Wolverine's clash with the Buckeyes in

The clockstrikes . .


If you've been ptting off going to class for the last couple of days for
various reasons, dd not knowing what time it is to your list of ex-
cuses. Seems as if several clocks around central campus, most
notably the east ockface on Burton Tower, have decided to take their
spring break a 1w days early. For quite sometime, that clock has
been stuck at 6:i. Now the clock on the front of the LSA building has
frozen itself at a5. Is there a clock strike sweeping the campus? The
answer is probaly not. According to Plant Department officials, the
central campuslock's work stoppage is not due to a disgruntled clock
strike or someort of energy saving scheme but it is because elec-
tricians are refiring them. Until then, you might as well stay home
because there'no point in going to class if you can't watch the clock,

Outer space buffs rejoice. The year
1979 will bring space events in "a num-
ber and variety unprecedented in all of
history," according to University
astronomy lecturer James Loudon.
Highlights of the upcoming year in
space include both man-made and
natural events, such as:
" The Pioneer-Venus probe, the first
planetary mission devoted exclusively
to the atmosphere, rather than the sur-
face, of a planet.
" The last total eclipse visible in the
contiguous United States in this cen-
tury, in February 1979.
" The first three flights of the Space
Shuttle into earth orbit which will, ac-
cording to Loudon, revolutionize near-
earth space and "cut the cost of space
flight to one-tenth of what it is now"
because the vehicles are reusable.
OTHER SPACE events anticipated
for 1979 include the arrival of the
Voyagers 1 and 2 on Jupiter to study the
planet and five of its moons. These
missions are important, Loudon says,
Daily Official Bulletin

od year
because Jupiter is "so different from
any worlds we've studied so far."
Jupiter is made entirely of gases and
liquids. Voyager 1 will arrive there in
March, followed by Voyager 2 in July.
Loudon, a life-long astronomy en-
thusiast, hopes to spend the entire
period, from December 1978 to Septem-
ber 1979, visiting the facilities coor-
dinating the study of these events -
everywhere from NASA's Ames
Research Center in San Francisco to
Cape Canaveral, Florida.
In addition to reporting these events
for National Public Radio, he will at-
tend the first International
Astronomical Union Space Conference,
a gathering of astronomers and
astrophysicists. Loudon will also attend
the next Princeton Space Colonization
meeting, which hopes to aid the
progress of establishing habitable
"worlds" in outer space to alleviate
many problems on earth, including
overpopulation-and the energy crisis.

payoll as a secretary when she was, in fact, his mistress. The former

Wshington Post. "The investigation dragged on for 18 months and
the didn't find anything," he said. "I knew they wouldn't." Wonder if
