All ye faithful
So your mother always wanted you to be a boxer, but you had to
see what it was like to be a journalist, just like in the movies? Dream
no more! The Michigan Daily offers real journalism training at down-
to-earth wages. For the whole scoop (as the trite members of our

Tougher than wax
When son Icarus' wings melted and dropped him into the sea,
Daedalus didn't die of grief, you know. Instead, he was turned into a
Il-by-30 foot steel sculpture which will be erected this morning on the
lawn of Alumni Memorial Hall, known to everyone except the alumni
as the Museum of Art. Created in 1975 by sculptor Charles Ginnever, it
was acquired through private gifts and a matching grant from the
National Endowment for the Arts. Friday, after public acclaim over
the thing has settled down a bit, a celebration of its arrival will be held
on the lawn, featuring free refreshments and a personal appearance
by Ginnever.

Safe smoke?
Tokers in Madison, Wisconsin have a unique form of dope smoking
insurance which may be even more reliable than the Ann Arbor $5.00
marijuana law. And it's not just because Madison recently passed its
own decriminalization law-in fact, the police department says they
aren't using the new law at all. Police Lt. Ted Balistreri says the
problem is that "There's no way to prove what you've been picked up
for is marijuana. You could say it's just oregano and we couldn't proye
otherwise." The only government body in the state capable of testing
such substances, the State Crime Lab, refuses to test substances ex-
cept on state business. Since a local ordinance isn't state business,
Madison cops still have to prosecute people under the harsher state
laws, which the department refuses to do since, says Balistreri,
"we've got more important things to do." Sounds pretty safe to us.
On the outside
Looks like the rainy Wednesday morning of the bluegrass tune.
Best you should remain in your sharecroppin' one-room country
shack, because it will rain and be miserable all morning and then be
cloudy and almost as miserable all afternoon, with a high of 72. Next to
today, tomorrow will look like Waikiki, with sun(that large yellow
orb in the sky) and a high of 76.

In preparation for its weekly treks into outer space during the 1980's,
the space shuttle "Enterprise" makes a five-minute free flight above NASA's
paee shuttle checks
out during its second

oryden Research Center in the California desert. The flight, according to
NASA officials, went off without a hitch.

Calif. (AP) - The space shuttle En-
terprise yesterday maintained its
record of doing everything it was de-
signed to do, gliding through sparkling
desert skies to a flawless touchdown on
its second free flight test.
During the five-minute, 20-second
descent from the back of the Boeing 747
jumbo jet, the two-man crew of the del-
ta-winged craft turned, banked and
rolled the prototype spacecraft from
side-to-side and landed it without a hit-
"LOOKS BEAUTIFUL from chase,"
radioed the pilot of one of the compara-
tively tiny jets that flew alongside the
75-ton glider. Yesterday's flight was a
preview of how the shuttle's earth-orbit
space flight will end - not with the
splash down of previous manned mis-
sions but with an airplane-style soar
through the atmosphere and a runway
"That sure was fun," came the word
from Enterprise after spacecraft com-
mander Joe Engle, 45, and copilot Rich-
ard Truly, 41, brought the rolling craft
to a stop after a dusty,'dry lake landing.
PLUMMETING more than four miles
in five minutes, the 75-ton Enterprise
reached speeds of more than 310 miles
an hour. At times Engle, an Air Force
colonel, opened a pair of hinged flaps at
the craft's tail to brake the shuttle's on-

rush and keep it on its U-shaped course.
Two other astronauts had guided the
craft during its first free flight Aug. 12.
Yesterday's cruise was much the-same
except that Engle and Truly used the
cockpit controls to put the stubby-wing-
ed shuttle through more maneuvers.
AS BEFORE, the powerless Enter-
prise descended along a U-shaped cour-
se over the corners more sharply,
Engle rolled the craft nearly onto its
side, exposing the black-painted belly.
During this tight turn, the craft and
crew were subjected to forces of nearly
twice the strength of gravity.
The crewmen also tested automatic
control systems that can guide the en-
tire flight automatically. With Truly.
calling out the numbers, Engle punched
a panel of buttons like those on a push-
button phone. The signal told a system
under the control of four onboard com-
puters to move wing and tailflaps to put
the craft through preprogrammed ma-
AFTER THE NEXT flight, scheduled
for Sept. 27, the shuttle will be flown to
Alabama for vibration tests.
There, the craft will be mated with a
giant fuel tank which will be used for
the first spacelaunch, in 1979.
A fleet of shuttles is planned to carry
scientific and industrial cargos such as
satellites and space stations into earth
orbit at a rate of about one flight a week
during the 1980s.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - The num-
ber of confirmed cholera victims in
Syria rose to 2,300 yesterday and scores
of cases were reported in neighboring
Jordan and Lebanon. Other Midestern
countries moved to check the spreading
The outbreak of the disease, spread
by contamination of food and water,
came on the eve of a three-day Moslem
feast. Police in two countries were seen
arresting food vendors.
SYRIA REPORTED almost 200 new
cases in 24-hours. At least 70 Syrian vic-
tims have died of the gastrointestinal
Jordan reported 214 cases and the
Lebanese Health Ministry reported 18,
with no fatalities in either country.
However, medical sources in Lebanon
put the toll at 25 and said three persons
had died in recent days of "food
poisoning," a designation the Lebanese
goverzment has used for cholera.
Lebanon ordered all medical personnel
to stay onduty over the Mosl'em holiday
bf Bairam, which starts Wednesday
pnd ends a month-long dawn-to-dusk
period of fasting.
} The Lebanese sanitation department
+rdered public health supervision over
city bakeries, which are full of Moslems
buying sweets, bread and Bairam cook-
ies for the holiday. Officials said all,
bread must be sold in nylon bags to
prevent infection from handling.
DOCTORS WARNED against overin-
dulgence during tie Bairam feasting."
Nyrian and Lebanese police were seen
prresting food vendors and confiscating

their wares. Soft drink and ice cream
peddlers were cleared off the streets.
Saudi Arabia confirmed that the epi-
demic had crossed from Jordan to the
northern Al-Kheiber district. The Saudi
state radio said there had been "only a
few cases" and authorities were ef-
fectively countering the disease.
THE SAUDI Health Ministry was re-
ported organizing extensive preventive
measures as the desert kingdom pre-
pared for the annual pilgrimage season
that attracts an estimated three million
Moslems from around the world to
Mecca and other holy sites in Saudi
Many of the pilgrims live in tent
camps or special dormitories where the
epidemic could easily take hold.
The United Arab Emirates and other
Persian Gulf countries clamped an em-
bargo on food imports from Syria and
Jordan. Libya, Egypt and Tunisia
urged their people to take precau-
tionary measures like receiving innocu-
lations and boiling drinking water.
