Reminders not wanted
When God got around to handing out business acumen, Los Angeles
concessionaire Blake Coleman must have been tending shop. Blake sent
us a letter the other day asking us to spread the good word about some hot
items he had for sale - Rose Bowl patches, buttons, pennants, and hats.
Yes, now you can relive Michigan's crushing, emotionally-draining
defeat by snapping up some of Blake's left-over pieces of memorabilia.
Well, Blake ole kid, we're not altogether sure your stuff is going to go over
real big here, especially since you omitted the one thing people around
here really could use - hankies.
Israelite for a day
Do you have a flair for flamboyant rhetorical flourishes? Ever have
a hankering to haggle over heavy issues, of world-wide importance? Have
friends ever described you as the diplomatic sort? Well, even if the an-
swer to all of these questions is "nay," you still could be one of seven
lucky souls chosen to go to New York this spring to participate in the
Model United Nations Conference. For the first time, Michigan is sending
a seven-person delegation which, as it turns out, will represent Israel. So,
if you want to go, you better get your "defensible borders" straight from
your "secure boundaries." If this perks your interest, all you have to do is
trot over to 6618 Haven Hall and pick up an application. Deadline for ap-
plications is Jan. 18.
That sardine rag
Remember back in September when there was a problem with
students and dorm space? You'll recall that there weren't enough rooms
for the people who signed dorm leases - even the economy triples were
occupied. The University ended up converting lounge space to room
space in some of the dorms. Well, you might think the space problem has
been mitigated with the new semester and people dropping out and all
that. But not so, says Acting. Housing Director Robert Hughes. Thougl
'final figures haven't yet been compiled, Hughes estimates that dorms
here still remain about 138 over capacity.

get death sentence
PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - Two men
convicted of first-degree murder in
the 1976 car-bomb slaying of news-
paper reporter Don Bolles were
sentenced yesterday to die in the gas
Max Dunlap, a 48-year-old 1-hoeni,
contractor, and James Robison, 55, a
plumber from suburban Chandler,
were found guilty Nov. 6 of murder
and conspiracy in the bombing.
Prosecutors asked that they be
sentenced to death.
THE DEATH of Bolles, whose
reporting specialty for the Arizona
Republic was crime, brought a team
of broadcast and newspaper report-
ers and editors to Arizona to investi-
gate orgapized crime.
Their report was issued in May.
Robison was convicted of detonat-
ing the bomb which exploded under
the newsman's car as he was leaving
a midtown hotel parking lot. Dunlap
was convicted of arranging the
murder. They were both sentenced to
not less than 29 years or more than 30
years on the conspiracy charge.
JOHN ADAMSON, 34, pleaded
guilty to second-degree murder
charges in'January 1976 and impli-
cated Dunlap and Robison. Adamson
faces a prison term of 20 years.

the sentence was imposed, Dunlap

"And to my lovely wife, Barbara, I
love you very dearly." Robison,
speaking in a deep, clear voice, told
the judge: "They (the prosecution)
were successful in getting a jury to
agree to their theory. It remains a
theory - nothing more."
Robison also charged that "the
attorney general and Phoenix Police
Department will use this as an
excuse to never confront the ones
who committed this crime with John
Harvey Adamson. I'm innocent."
BEFORE PASSING sentence,

The general hails the heifers
We've had macho singers crooning about automobiles and glamor-
cusly slinky movie starlets cooing about perfume, but now an Hollywood
ad executive has come up with a new twist. Opting for what might be
called the authoritarian approach, one Chuck Blore has whipped up, and
stars in, a series of TV spots which have a General George Patton type
giving the folks at home some fire and brimstone on the manly subject of,
uh, milk. In one commercial, the general raises a glass of milk and toasts
"all of you who have helped make milk the all-American drink" - a few
dozen dairy cows. In another spot, "Patton" urges men to drink cow juice
at every meal and then barks, "If you won't do it for yourself, do it for
