Wet worms
The rain came in torrents Wed sday night, one of the biggest storms
of this autumn. Water washed dqn gutters, dripped from trees, and
seeped down through the turf to the tiny grottoes in the soil where
thousands of little beings were trying to get a good night's sleep. The vic-
tims? The campus's earthworms. While yu and I found dry clothes and
comfort indoors, thousands of worms were burrowing upward like hell,
and it wasn't long before paved surfaces all over the city were crawling
with the little guys. You couldn't take a step without smearing one of
them. Why so many? University zoology Professor Brian Hazlett said
yesterday he wasn't entirely sure, but that it probably was because of the
recent warrR weather. The worms were all close to the surface, and when
the rain came down into their hideaways, they started to drown. So they
came up to the surface as fast as they could. That wasn't so bad - the
problem came when the temperature dropped near freezing overnight.
Unless they got back underground quick, Hazlett said, the worms "were
in trouble, as we may all be in trouble when this winter hits." Poor little
guys.
Hot rocks
Ever take a sauna? Great, right? You can take a sauna right here on
campus, over at the new intramural building on the Hill. It's a brand new
sauna, it's in good shape, and it's bound to produce sweat on the brow of
the most tropical of exercisers. But there is one little problem. The
University spent plenty of money on the thing; the cost could have run as
high as $2,400, according to McCoy, Inc., a Lathrup Village sauna firm.
But when the facility was built, a crucial element was left uncovered -
the heads of the metal nails that hold the thing together. That wouldn't be
much of a problem if people took saunas with their clothes on, but they
don't, and the part of the anatomy most likely to come in contact with the
nails on the sauna benches is highly sensitive. We're not trying to be cute;
we're just concerned about student welfare. Perhaps you should write a
letter of protest to the athletic department. In any case, when you try out
the University's sauna, take a towel to sit on. And watch out for the un-
prepared, who without their towels are likely to take flight the moment
they hit those benches.
Happenings . .
In this time of shortages it's nice to know that there's never a hap-
penings crisis around town, and they get under way at noon today with a
luncheon with Professor Zelda Gamson at Guild House - her topic, "The
Political Economy of the University, 1970's" ... the situation in South
Africa will unfold before your eyes in 443 Mason Hall at noon when they
roll "South Africa Essay 1I: One Nation, Two Nationalisms," rerun at 4
.the female people from the Undergraduate Women's Organization will
hold history's longest coffee hour from 3-5 at 3411 Union ... and over in
South Quad's West Lounge, the Art Ensemble of Chicago will regale you
from 3-5 with a duscussion about the history and political philosophy of
their music ... at 3:30 Berkley Philosophy Professor John Searle will drop
in on the crowd at Rackhatn's Amphitheater to discuss "Intentionality"
then dash full of intentions to the faculty lounge, 3rd floor Haven Hall to
hear "What's Wrong with Social History" from a panel of graduate
History students ... more South African info at 5 from Northwestern's
Dennis Brutus in Ed. School's Schorling Aud. ... the little tramp, Charlie
Chaplin is back, when "Modern Times" is shown tonight at 8:00 at the
First Presbyterian Church on Washtenaw, and best of all it's free ... but
before the film, stop by the 7:30 service that the Student Union for
Progressive Judaism will be holding at 1364 Geddes, Apartment A ... and
if you'd rather take in an evening of theatre, try the PTP's production of
"CHAPEAU" at the Power Center tonight and tomorrow ... for another
freebie, "BITES - A dance work" will be presented in the Music School's
studio theatre tonight, also at eight ... And as if the 8:00 slot in your
schedule isn't already full enough, add to the list Dr. Albert Feurer-
werker, Prof. of History and Director of the Center for Chinese Studies
speaking on "China In the Last Quarter of The' 20th Century" at the
Ecumenical Campus Center on Church St.; This one's part of the Dis-
tinguished Faculty Series ... and, more with South Africa, Thami Mhlam-
biso, ANC Representative to the UN, will tell us about "The Recent
Crackdown and the Implication to the Liberation Struggle" at, you
guessed it, 8:00 ... at Canterbury House on the corner f Catherine and'
Division discuss "An Alternative Approach to Cancer" with Chris Allen,
and, yes, you already know the time ... And since you'll be an expert on
South Africa after all the other events, you may want to broaden your
knowledge of South and Southeast Asia by attending one of the South East
Asia Study Center's events tonight and tomorrow in Room 200 of Lane
Hall - tonight it's a masked ballet called "The Death Of The Pig-Headed
Tyrant," no less, so stop by at, right again, 8.

On the outside
is all the Christmas-type cold you can stand. Our weather fore-
casters say there's a chance of snow again today, and the sky will stay
clouded over. More cold is on the way for the weekend. The high today
will be a crackling 390, the low, as the skies clear toward evening will be
240.
