Arbor outlet on 401 S. Main St. has a
large supply on hand, and is still
distributing the light bulbs.
"We have plenty in stock. Don't
worry," said Robert Veenstra, direc-
tor of customer and marketing serv-
ices. "We never had a line-up yet, but
the response seems to be increas-
ing."
Veenstra said Edison and Cantor's
attorneys have been trying to negoti-
ate an in-court settlement. But even
if an agreement is reached, Edison
would have to settle with other
Detroit area light bulb retailers
whom Cantor claims he is represent-
ing.
"THERE'S A fairly good chance
that it (the law suit) may go
through," Veenstra said. He said
many of the customers believe
Edison, which makes "zilch" on the
bulb-exchange program, according
to Veenstra, is responsible for want-
ing the bulb exchange program
ended.
"It's certainly something the man-
agement would not do on its own,"
Veenstra said.

about half a million light bulbs a
year. Detroit Edison will exchange
almost 16 million bulbs throughout
Michigan.
According to Veenstra, the pro-
gram began in 1866 to encourage the
use of the then new-fangled light
bulb. Edison is the last electric
company to give away light bulbs to
its customers.
One fact which has been mistaken-
ly reported by several newspapers, is
that Cantor owns Seldon Drugs in De-
troit.
Cantor actually sold the store in
June to Dennis Alpine and Cantor
now owns Northland Pharmacy in
Detroit.
"I'M GETTING a lot of hassles,"
Alpine said. "Everyone's calling me
up; most of them have been very
upset."
Edison is currently charging about
60 cents for a regular household bulb.
If you want to exchange your light
bulb, you must bring your burned-out
ones and your most recent electric
bill to Edison. But don't worry, it
may be until next year before a
decision is reached.

Earlier in the day, Blanco spoke to
a Residential College class and said,
"Carter has to talk about human
rights because of the lack of credibil-

Last night he reiterated that point,
saying: "The human rights propa-

GREAT EXPECTATIONS
Director: DAVID LEAN (1946)
This wonderful illumination of the Dickens classic is the best examp
telling the screen has to offer. The richness of Dickens-hisbrilliantr
humor and pathos and colorful atmosphere-has never been sor
captured on film. The unforgettable tale of virtue winning over sn
hate will certainly warm the hearts of Charles Dickens fans. Star
