Places to

discover and
things to see

graduated students who decided
to stick around town. It's a long
walk from campus, but it's
much quieter and somewhat
(though not much) less expen-!
sive.
The social center of the west
side is West Park, a three-block
chunk of greensward which in
the summer plays host to freaks,
frisbees and, poetry readings.
WEST OF THIS area. is undif-
ferentiatedFs u b u rb i a, which
votes Republican and eats at
the fast food joints on Stadium
Blvd. Stadium acts as a sort of
belt around the city and carries
lots of traffi from the west side
to the south.
. Directly south of campus.are'
two) neighborhoods which are
largely - and densely - student,
populated. South of Packard and

just east of State, about four
blocks south of the Union, is a
district of frame houses and
apartments whose point of refer-
ence is the old Intramural Build-.
ing on Hoover St. The area is
pleasant and the houses are
ideal for small groups of people,
but can be rather expensive.
South of South University
Ave., running south and east for,
almost a mile, is the Burns Park
district. The streetshere are
very narrow, winding, and in
bad repair, but the houses and
trees are gorgeous. So far as
this picturesque area has a main
thoroughfare, it is East, Univer-
sity' Ave. Lots of professors live-
in the eastern reaches of the
district.
IF IT'S FRATERNITIES and
sororities you're into, look along

Hill St., Washtenaw Ave. and
Oxford Rd. The frats are widely,
dispersed, but center roughly
around the corner of Hill and
Washtenaw, where "The Rock"
is repainted every few days by
drunken Da Vincis.
East of Washtenaw Ave., the
dwellings b e c o m e residential
and very posh. There is some
student housing-largely modern
apartments -- along Geddes Rd.
and the east end of South Uni-
versity Ave., and all the "Hill"
dorms are out here, a short jay-
walk across tlhe highway froii
campus. .But the far southeast
section of the city.is made up of
ranch houses with fake cedar
siding, clustered around deliber-
ately winding roads which try'
hard to be English: Devonshire,
Cambridge, Avondale, etc.

Northeast of central campus
is the Medical Center, a little
world unto itself. And way out
yonder is North Campus, the
University's own planned com-
munity, including dorms, the
computing center and the art
and music schools. There is a
bike trail along Fuller Rd., but.
in the winter the only real
transportation is by bus.
Here, for handy reference, is
how to get to North 'Campus
from the Union: north on State
to Huron, east on Huron to Glen;
swing right at the triangle, over
the railroad tracks, right at the
cement traffic island, east oi
Fuller, then turn left through
the traffic islands at Bonisteel
Blvd.
Or better yet, follow- the
buses.

(Continued from Page 6)
NORTH AND northwest of the
central city, along Broadway
and Pontiac Trail, are newer
residential areas (newer being
defined as sixty years old rather
than a hundred) and a taste of

honest-to-God suburbia on the
fringe of the city.
Directly west of downtown is
the Old West Side, whosemain;
drag is Seventh St. The west
side has a strong sense of com-
munity-including its own news-
letter-and is a mix of older
residents, current students, and

Crisis services:
,Some one t isten

By GREGG KRUPA
When the telephone rings at
621 E. William, the friendly
chatter in the cramped, second-
story office stops.. 'A volunteer
reaches quickly to answer the
call, knowing that the person on
the other end of the line is not
merely seeking conversation,
but help for a serious problem.
The office is the home of the
Community Center Coordinating
Council (C-4), the parent body
for Ozone House, Community
Switchboard .and 994- H E L P.
Staffed primarily by volunteers,
these three groups render serv-
ices which the University and
local government are often un-
able to perform.
AS A CITY with a lhrger than

bor experiences problems with

transients, drug abuse and rape.
To cope with these situations, a
number of crisis services - in-
cluding C-4-have sprung up in
the community over the last sev-
eral years.
C-4 was developed to provide
a wide range of services in Ann
Arbor and surrounding com-
munities, emphasizing lielping
those who are unable to pay for
c o u n s e 1 i n g or have limited
knowledge of services available
to them.
The 994-HELP center provides
walk-in and phone counseling
for people in crisis situations.
Free short-term counseling and
long-term therapy with trained
counselors is also available.
"994-HELP began as DRUG
HELP in 1970 in response to the
drug culture's need for an alter-
native, non-establishment crisis
center where people could ob-
tain knowledgeable and accurate
information about licit and illicit
drugs," explained Rick Fox, a'
994-HELP coordinator. Original-
ly housed in a closet with two
phones, 994-HELP has grown to
a- large organization with 60
volunteers and ,seven paid staff
members.

eral areas, including a walk-in,
service. Its office on E. William
is open for on-the-spot counsel-
ing from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. every
day. Volunteers also answer
help-line calls 24 hours a day.
"Phone counseling is non-di-
rective, non-analytic, and feel-
ing oriented, Fox said. "We!
don't attempt to dissuade any-
one from using drugs or attempt I
any behavior modification tech-
niques on our counselees."
The center also tries to dis-
burse information aimed at
curbing drug depedency. For
those already hooked on drugs
like - valium, darvon, amphe-
tamine, and alcohol, ,the coun-
selors explore the problems
which might have encouraged
the person's habit.
C o m mnu4n i t y Switchboard
1(ONE-1111) answers questions
about services and events in
A n n Ar b o r 'and surrounding
areas. Calls range over a wide
area-where to get free, innocu-
lations for c h il d r e n, special
events in the community, re-
sources for senior citizens and
others.
Ozone House provides services
to the runaways who flock to
Ann Arbor in large numbers.
Approximately 200 runaways
find their way to Ozone House
each year. A pair of counselors
provide them with a non-thfeat-
ening environment where they
can talk freely about their feel-
ings and problems.
Ozone House counselor Julie
Rinehart said although the serv-
ices are geared to young people
between the ages of 9 and 17,
the center does offer aid to the
University community as well.
"We offer students the op-
portunity to get trained in
crisis intervention situations,"
Rinehart said. "Students who
have worked here have gotten
class credit through Project
Outreach, the Office of Wo-
men's Studies, the Psychology
Practicum a n d Residential
College."
The Women's Crisis Center is
a group of women who help each
other. Located at 211% North
Fourth Ave., the center offers
women aid in the areas of as-
sertiveness training, d i v o r c e
and separation, rape awareness,
self - defense, problem -solving
and peer counseling training.
In addition, the center seeks
to help women by counseling in-
dividuals and couples during
problem pregnancies. They also
offer emergency and follow-up
counseling for rape victims, in
cooperation with the county's
Assault Crisis Center.
Referrals are made often to
qualified services and profes-
sionals. Crisis Telephone Coun-
seling is available at 994-9100.,
