PARTICIPANTS SEEMED satisfied
with the conference. Some women said
they were learning new material while
others saw the event as a chance to re-
interpret known information.
Ellen Fishman, a senior interested in
pursuing a career in politics, said, "In
my normal educational contacts, it's
(politics and women) not dealt with.
This brings it into a realistic perspec-
tive. She said, "Although it didn't deal
with my specific needs, she continued. I.
got an idea of what was available."
A University alumnus termed the
conference a "shot in the arm." "I get
energy and group support by hearing
problems and ways to tackle them It's
good to hear this information again,"
A TWO-DAY PROGRAM, the
Educational Conference on Women
sponsored by the Residential College
and East Quad mixes educational
sessions with community interaction
Yesterday's events included a self-
defense workshop, discussions on
lesbian mothers and abortion and an
evening of women's music. -
The self-defense workshop reviewed
protection techniques and its par-
ticipants discussed the social processes
which condition women not to be
aggressive in threatening situations.
"YOU'VE GOT to forget social con-
ventions," saif Lauri Krauth, conductor
of the workshop. "You've got to be
aggressive because you're protecting
yourself and that's important,'' she
"Ann Arbor is so paranoid that once
you get out in the street, you're the only
person there," said one participant in
wonder. "The only person," she
KRAUTH URGED women to walk
confidently when walking alone and to
be prepared. She told the women not to
be afraid to act-to make noise; cross
the street, stop at an 'open
business-and not to worry about
looking crazy when trying to protect
At another session, Carolyn Bode, a
lobbyist with the Women's 'i Ldby
discussed abortion and the legisltive
process in a low-keyed discussion
After a quick briefing on the struc-
ture of the lobby, Bode talked about
abortion and the pressing need for
women to act. "The first thing we've
got to do is start taking the offensive,"
she said. "We've got to meet the planes
and appear at speeches. We've got to
raise the question and continually con-
front the legislators from our side;'!
BODE PREDICTED that- the, anti-
abortion forces plan on attaching abor-
tion riders on every possible health
related bill. She offered a preview of
bills Congress will probably vote on in-
the coming year including a Labor-
Health, Education, and Welfare bill and
a National Health Insurance Bill.

Louie Hamilton was pretty pleased. The sophomore from
Ann Arbor Huron High School had built a bridge out of tooth-
picks and glue that weighed only 10 grams and it had just
held up to the Third Annual Toothpick Bridge Building Con-
test's stress test.
Hamilton was pleased, but also nervous. One of his
classmates had built a lighter bridge, the lightest in the con-
test, and in a couple of minutes it would undergo the stress
IN THE VISUAL appeal and workmanship category,
Hamilton had 25 points, second best, behind the same
classmate whQ had 27.5. For Hamilton to win, his classmate's
bridge would have to fail the stress test.
"I put a lot of effort into it," the thin, dark-haired youth
said. Hamilton spent a month designing and glueing the
toothpicks together for his bridge, which had to span 16 in-
ches for yesterday's competition.
At the time of his stress test, his bridge was the lightest.
The fifty or so people including other contestants, family, the
judges and interested viewers were quiet when Hamilton put
his bridge on the stand.
THE APPLAUSE he received when his bridge withstood
the weight of the five-pound brick brought a smile to his face.
"I hadn't tested' it before," Hamilton said. "If I'd put five
pounds on it, something might have broken."
Hamilton returned to his seat as the competition's leader
after more than half the record number 45 entries had been
Herb Mieras, a Huron High senior who dabbles in this sort
of thing, received similar applause when his 7.3 gram bridge
stood up to the five-pound pressure for the required 30 secon-
ONLY EIGHT bridges were left to be tested and Mieras
was a shoe-in. His arched, parabolic structure with a tension
bar was the only one of its kind. It was the lightest bridge in
the contest and also garnered the most visual appeal and
workmanship points from the three judges - 27.5 of a
"He did a good job," Hamilton said, his smile not quite as
bright. "He probably spent hours on each of his connec-
Mieras said no, he had spent only about 10 hours building
the bridge. But indeed, it looked as if he had spent months.
One of the judges thought the tension bar was string and not
toothpicks, the craftsmanship was so fine.
BUT MIERAS wasn't worried that his bridge wouldn't
hold the brick. "Only if they had put it on crooked" he said,
"I tested it at home with a six-pound brick and it held."
Mieras emerged the undisputed champ and for his effor-
ts received a trophy and a powerful calculator while the large
traveling trophy will now rest in Huron High School with
Mieras' name engraved on it.
THE BRIDGE-BUILDING champ hopes winning might
help him get into the University where he has been wait-
listed for the College of Engineering.
For Louie Hamilton there was a trophy and less-powerful
calculator and hopes for next year, and, as Louie said, "the

FOR I'IIE first time in the contest's three years, a
woman won an award. Lynn Johnson from Romulus High
School took fourth place.
Both the >qulityaand quantity of the competition was
vastly improved in this year's contest, held as part of
'Technology Day in the Chrysler Center on North Campus.
There were only 17 entries last year and only four of those
passed the stress test.
The stress test does not test total strength, said contest
committee head Professor James Wight, but tests "more
engineering needs." Only three bridges failed to support the
