food and fiber that we export in two
years to pay for just one year of impor-

THE U.N. Security Council unani- that w
mously approved an arms embargo
against South Africa's white-minor-
ity regime Friday in reaction to
Vorster's crackdown on black lead-
ers and organizations. Some U.N.
members are pressing for additional
sanctions, including a cutoff of oil
supplies.
The U.S. voted for the arms em-
bargo and Vorsterhsuggested oil-
exp4orting nations had pressured
Washington into making such a deci-
sion. He singled out Nigeria, a
member of the 13-nation Organiza-
tion of Oil Exporting Countries, for a
bitter attack.
He said Nigeria, black Africa's
wealthiest nation, is ruled by a
"cruel military dictatorship" and
added: "I am getting a bit sick and

He referred to the stockpiling of oil
in recent years in abandoned coal
mines. It is estimated by some
officials that these reserves could
provide for emergency needs for
several years.
Vorster said South Africa will
continue to make domestic changes
in its apartheid policies "but not
because the world says we must do
so."

the status quo, this could mean an.
even greater delay, since the matter
would have to be discussed at stock-
bolder meetings Such meetings
usually occur in the spring of each
year. If the Regents don't make a de-
cision until fall, 1978, they would not
be able to implement their decision
until spring, 1979.
Brian Kuttner, a representative of
the South African Liberation Com-
mittee (SALC), claims whatever the
committee does is useless anyway.
He said, "It's unimportant - it's
merely a stalling ,tactic." Kuttner
charges that the Regents plan to en-
courage discussion of the matter as a
delaying tactic.
THE COMMITTEE was estab-
lished in 1970 to cope with student
unrest. But Fleming said, "More
recently, there has been less interest
in such forums . . . and the commit-
tee has been inactive to nonexistent."
The Regent's bylaws give a vague
outline for a committee that would
provide the basis for communica-
tion between students, faculty, and'
administration.
Fleming wrote in a letter to Chris
Bachelder, Michigan Student Assem-
bly (MSA) vice-president - that he
would prefer to have the committee
"functioning by the third week in
September. "However, the commit-

tee has yet to begin discussion of the
issue.
Part of the delay in reactivating
the committee seems to be due to the
lengthy process for selecting mem-
bers. Two students were to be select-
ed by the Faculty Senate Assembly
from a list of four nominees. The fac-
ulty nembers were to be picked in
the same manner by MSA. When the
four met, they were to select two
administrators. Then a chairperson
would be chosen from among the six.
WILLIAM CASH, assistant to the
president, is responsible for organiz-
ing the committee. He said "The
whole procedure ... is sort of a slow
one."
This is what happened: on July 19,
Fleming revealed his intention to re-
activate the Committee in a letter to
Bachelder. But MSA is not in session
during the summer, so nothing could
be done until the fall.
By September 20, the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs (SACUA) had received the
list of student nominees. They could
not act, according to their bylaws,
until the Senate Assembly met Octo-
ber 17.
SACUA SENT the list of faculty
nominees to MSA on September 21.
MSA did not notify the administra-
tion of its choice until October 26,

said MSA president Jon Lauer:
MSA took over five weeks to pick
two of the faculty nominees because
"we had some very important stuff
coming up in the assembly, like the
constitutional amendments, the elec-
tion of officers ..." said Lauer.
The two faculty members selected
by MSA were John Mathes and
Alfred Meyer. The two students
chosen by the Senate Assembly were
Heidi Gottfried and Bob Cutler.
Those four then chose administrators
Marion Jackson and Percy Bates.
KENNEDY said the SoutheAfrican
issue is as significant as the recent
DNA research debate, and that took
almost a year to resolve, "I don't,
hold out any really significant hope
that we're going to be able to do this
one much more quickly than that,"
he said.
A source close to the committee
has raised a basic question: how
effective will the committee be?
Denis Ondeje, vice president of the
African Students Association, which
is sponsoring the teach-in on South
Africa this week, is taking a wait-
and-see attitude.
"After they have met once or
twice, and we know what their meth-
od of operation is, how fast they are
working . .. then we will be able to
make a judgement," he said.

Predators meet prey:
The Union pool hustle

(Continued from Page 1)
It wasn't a hard choice. If I go to school
I'll make something of myself. If I hang
around here, I'll go nowhere."
GORDON ISN'T the only shark on the
premises, and each of the others has his
own reasons for fancying the ivory
balls.
Dave Farmer holds down a job at
University Hospital in his spare time.
But his first love is pool. It "gives me
money to party with," he says.
Union regular Jim Byrd says "you
have to waste time one way or another,
and pool is the best way."
Most of the regulars hang out at the
pool hall several hours a day, and only
about half are students. While Farmer
and Gordon are attracted to the
economic niceties of the sport, others
savor the fine points of the tables.
rOne of those is Carl Conlon, a
dignified gentileman with more
sophisticated reasons for his regular at-
tendance. He was an international
champion in three-cushion billiards - a
close cousin of pool - and he finds in
that moribund game a finer breed of
cue competition.
"BILLARDS isn't a popular game
because an American kid wants to win
more than he wants to play," Conlon
said. "You have to learn too much
before you can make a showing in
billiards."
Conlon .isn't a hustler at all. He con-
siders himself an instructor. When he
first walked into the Union hall, he

is fun and cheap. Besides, he says, it

esthetic appeal: "It grows on you. It's
sort of like music; the better you get the
more work it is."
The "morphology of pool" is what
fascinates graduate botany student Van
Baldwin. "There are a number of basic
shots that appear in an infinite varie-
ty," he says. "Knowing why you miss is
the challenge."
There are few overtones of seediness
in the Union hall. Liquor isn't available.
"The people come to play pool," says
John Daly. "It's the only thing of-
fered.
