Michigan makes it *
Michigan ranks among the country's top ten sexiest colleges, ac-
cording to a recent survey in Genesis magazine. According to the ar-
ticle, 66 per cent of Michigan women, and 74 per cent of Michigan men
participate in oral-anal 4ex twice a week or more. Genesis sent 10
thousand questionnaires to over 100 schools, and received a 64 per cent
- male and female - response. Judging was done on a scale of one to
four, rating various sexual acts - four signifying the campus' "most
popular and practiced sex act"; three - "popular activity but varied
with other sex act"; two - "practiced by 50 per cent of students in-
dulging in sex"; one-- "practiced by 25 per cent of students indulging
in sex." Michigan ranked a four in oral-anal, three in heterosexual,
one in bi-sexual, orgies, erotica, water sports, and S&M, and zero in
oriental sex and infantile sex' The survey said fellatio and cunnilingus
are the most popular practice of Michigan co-eds because of its "no-
muss, no-fuss simplicity."

TOKYO (AP) - China's new Parlia-
ment meets tomorrow to put the
finishing touches on the power struc-
ture laboriously erected by Communist
party moderates in the wake of Mao
Tse-tung's death and the crushing of the
party's radicals 16 months ago.
Most speculation-centers on whether
the Fifth National People's Congress
will name Teng Hsiao-ping premier and
give party Chairman Hua Kuo-fong the
additional job of chief of state.
THE 2,800 deputies to the congress
will, after discussion and debate, con-
firm the party's choices for a new
cabinet and possibly revise the con-
stitution to re-establish the chief of
state's job which was abolished a
decade ago. They will also approve the
budget and an ambitious economic plan
calling for industrial modernization by
the year 2000.
The last congress, in January 1975,
approved the modernization plan laid
down by the late Premier Chou En-lai.
However, it was stalled by radical op-
position, the deaths of Chou and Mao
and the struggle for power centering
around ways to carry it out.
The overthrow of the radicals, who
were led by Mao's widow Chiang Ching,
cleared the way for the election of Hua,
57, to the party chairmanship and the
concurrent job of premier.
THE ECONOMIC plan got a boost
with the rehabilitation of Teng, 73, the
hard headed,' no-nonsense senior vice
premier originally assigned by Chou to
implement it.
Hints dropped by Chinese officials to
visiting Japadese delegations have
suggested Teng might become premier.

He had been slated for the job before his
second downfall in 1976 and has been
carrying out the premier's duties since
his return.
The same officials indicated Hua
would gather both party and state
power into his hands by assuming the
chairmanship, or presidency, of the
People's Republic. Other possibilities
are that Hua will remain premier and
Teng will become chief of state.
STILL TO BE filled is another impor-
tant position, that of chairman of the
congress' standing committee which
holds power when the Parliament is not
in session. It was held by Chu Teh until
his death in 1976. The party's No. 2 man,
Marshal Yeh Chien-ying, 81, has been
mentioned as a likely candidate.
Hua told the party's-Central Commit-
tee this week that China has weathered
the crisis caused by the radicals and the
country has started a new period of
development, the official Hsinhua news
"A new shape of things, stability and
unity and greater exertions for
socialism, has already emerged," he
said. But he called on the Parliament to
"further eradicate the pernicious in-
fluerice of the'gang of four'."
ALTHOUGH the coalition which took
over from Mao succeeded in over-
throwing its radical enemies, the
process of consolidating its grip on
China's 800 million people has proven a
difficult one.
It began with the replacement of pro-
radical officials at all levels and the
creation of new party and revolutionary
committees. The revolutionary com-
mittees are, in effect, local governmen-

Once this was done, it was decided
last October to organize a new congress
to replace the fourth, which was not due
to expire until 1980.
ALL PERSONS 18 or over cast their
ballots for people's congresses at the
lowest level, the rural communes and
the towns. These congresses then
named delegates to prefectural, city
and county congresses which in turn
elected the congresses for the 29
provinces and municipalities, such as
Shanghai and Peking. The congresses
chose the deputies meeting tomorrow.
The Chinese People's Political Con-
sultative Conference's fifth national
committee opened its first session in 13
years in Peking on Friday, Hsinhua
In outlining the future tasks of the
group, Hsu Teh-heng, vice chairman of
the fourth national co'mmittee, called
for the "liberation" of Taiwan and
developing an "international united
front against the hegemonist powers,
the Soviet Union and the United

Chinese congress plans cabinet

IN OCTOBER 1975, Hsu said, Mao
and the party Central Committee,
decided to convene the fifth national
committee as early as possible, "but
this was blocked by the gang of four.
Representatives of the national
committee will attend the National
People's Congress as observers.
In a report from Belgrade, mean-
while, the Yugoslav news agency Tan-
jug said several hundred scientists andy
experts in Shanghai have been acquit-
ted of charges of spying for Taiwan and
the British Intelligence Service.
TAN.JUG SAID the scientists were
arrested during the time the "gang of
four" was active. They had been con-.
fined and forced to confess, the agency
said, quoting the Peking newspaper.-
People's Daily.
It said a comprehensive investigation
has proved that none of the scientists
from the Shanghai Department of the
Chinese Academy of Sciences was
engaged in espionage: Some of them
died in jail, however, including Huang
Wu-han, an expert in electronics.

1och asks callers

for auto advice

Council hard on prostitutes.. .
A sensitive issue like pornography is no laughing matter, but try
telling that to the 11-member Ann Arbor City Council. When dealing
with the city's new anti-porn law at Thursday's meeting, the council
members managed to level a few good barbs at political opponents to
break a record for the most witticisms expounded during a single
debate. One exchange went like this: Earl Green (D-Second Ward)
questioning a clause in the bill dealing with "known" prostitutes:
"What is a known prostitute? How long are you known?" Louis
Belcher (R-Fifth Ward) responded, "I don't know. I don't know any
prostitutes." Green said, "I understand that, Mr. Belcher, your vir-
tues are many."- Belcher then proposed that a "known prostitute" be
one who was convicted of prostitution in the last 24 months, to which
Green replied, "I can do better than that at church. I can walk in a sin-
ner and walk out saved." At another point, Mayor Albert Wheeler
joined the discussion. "I don't necessafily approve of pornography,"
he said to Belcher. "I don't patronize those places. You probably read
,more of those dirty magazines than I do," Belcher replied: "That's an
assumption of guilt you can't prove." Ronald Trowbridge (R-Fourth
Ward) came up with some startling revelations of his own: "I have
been known to read some of these magazines, and, on occasion, in a
moment of weakness, look at the pictures." Needless to say, the Coun-
cil chambers echoed with gasps of disbelief and astonishment.


NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Edward
Koch has asked New Yorkers whether
he should continue riding in a cramped
sedan or spread out in the spaciousness
of a Cadillac limousine. So far sen-
timent favors cramped.
Koch's appeal this week to a city of
nearly eight million had brought forth
fewer than 500 replies at last count
PRESS AIDES tallying The Great
Caddy Canvass said that letters showed
54 for the limo and 82 against.
Telephone calls divided 15 for the Cad-
dy and 163 against.
Twelve callers said the mayor should
have no car at all, and one called up to
say he was undecided.
Koch started his administration less
than two months ago with a strong show
of support for public transportation. He
rode the subway. He took the bus.
Sometimes, he said, he would take an
official car, a 1974 Chrysler sedan, with
45,000 miles on the odometer, left over
from the administration of Mayor
Abraham Beame.
BEFORE KOCH'S first month was
out, the Chrysler's brakes froze while it
was on a bridge overpass and the car
slammed into a snowbank. Dubbing the
car a "deathmobile," he packed aides
off to look for another set of wheels.
In a Brooklyn garage they found a
city-owned 1972 Cadillac limousine with
60,000 miles on it. It was last used to
"shlep" Queen Elizabeth to the airport,
officials said.
Koch, who at 6-foot-3 stands a foot
taller than his predecessor, approved
the refurbishment of the Caddy for $462
and envisioned space to stretch his legs.
Aides, however, counseled him to cool it
on the Caddy; they said it would ruin
his conservative fiscal image. Calling
his staffers " chicken," Koch declared:
"I'll let the public decide."
THE TRICKLE of letters began.
"You've yakked about public tran-
sportation - now you have the gall to
put the question in this loaded fashion
- deathtrap vs. Cadillac," wrote Doris
Kaplan of the Bronx. "You picked your
image, now live with your deathtrap."
Mervin Rhoedes of Manhattan wrote:
"A great mayor of a great city deserves
to do his tours in safety, comfort and
with the di'gnity of his office. By all
means use the Cadillac."
Meanwhile a Chrysler Corp.
spokesman said the company had of-
fered three times to help repair the car


and twice was turned down. The last
time he said he was told the repairs had
been made.
Several auto dealers offered cars
ranging from Chevrolets to Cadillacsat
$1 a year, but the mayor said it would
conflict with his policy "of not accep-
ting gifts while I serve in public office."
THE NEW York Daily News in an
editorial urged readers to write so "this
momentous decision" could be made
and Koch go on to matters such as the -
budget deficit, federal aid and labor

Writer's Hotine to

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Having
problems with your dangling par-
ticiples? Finding that your commas
don't fit and your verbs don't agree?
Now you can call a "Writer's Hotline"
for answers to troublesome gram-
matical problems.
Stuart Peterfreund, associate
professor of English at the University
of Arkansas at Little Rock, developed
the program. He said faculty members
had, been fielding questions on gram-
mar from the Arkansas business and
government community for years on an
informal basis.

do with the overall decrease in
literacy," said Peterfreund, 33.
The hotline, reachable at 501-569-3162,
is open from 9 a.m. to noon Monday
through Friday to answer questions on
tense, diction, style or anything else
relating to grammar. A secretary takes
the calls and transfers them to one of
the faculty members staffing the

people who need more than remedial

skills classes.
While Peterfreund was talking with a
reporter yesterday, the hotline rang
and a woman wanted to know whether
she should use "is" or "are" in the sen-
tence, "I'd like the one which,
less expensive." A faculty member ex-

Peterfreund said.
