High rents, high temps
Cold as hell outside, right? Well, you can thank
your lucky stars you're 'not Leon Sompolinsky or
David Roteberg. These poor guys live up on the
top floor of University Towers on Forest Ave.,
and in the midst of a nationwide panic over energy
shortages, they're living in a steaming tropical
oasis. You're bundling up even when you're i-
side, aren't you? These guys have their windows
open almost all the time. It gets up to about 85
degrees, then they turn on their air conditioning
to get the temp down to the liveable. Building
director Morris Johnson said he hasn't heard the
complaint, but that he'd like to -get on the prob-
lem right away. Leon says he and his roomie
told the maintenance people of the heat but got
no results.
Gaies children play
Now, we kn6w it's hard to believe, but our
northern collegiate counterparts are one up on us.
Can't imagine why we never thought of this in
our quest for the ultimate orgasmic activity, but
the kids at MSU in East Lansing have discovered
they can - are you ready? - photocopy their
faces. They say the machines in libraries around
campus provide a new, painless and dirt-cheap
way to duplicate themselves. Kathy Trapp says
she's giving away copies as Valentines next month.
Clever. Veterinary student Charles Horowitz brags
that he and his roommates have decorated their
walls with pictures of their scrunched-up, flat-
nosed faces. Lovely. Library officials there-quick
to investigate this new, no doubt rebellious fad -
have concluded it's all legit. (Phew!) "Kids can
copy whatever they want to," said library direc-
tor Richard Chapin, handing down one of his
more controversial decisions during his tenue
at MSU. "It is no violation of the copyright law
for them to copy their faces." What will -those
Spartans think of next?

of fuel both in government

ordinary extra costs and I think
there is a legal prohibition. We
are investigating that now."

"This is my sweetest victory in 30 years of

Orr. "They shot very, very well."
Ahead 59-57 with fifteen minutes remaining,
Northwestern scored 11 consecutive points in a
span of three minutes, seven of them by Mc-
Kinney, giving the Wildcats a 70-57 lead.
ORR CALLED TIME OUT and regrouped his
forces. He installed a three-guard offense of
Dave Baxter, Steve Grote, and Rickey Green
to combine with John Robinson and Phil Hub-
"I wanted more quickness," Orr said later.
"We got within two points but couldn't quite
do it."
After 'an exchange of baskets, Michigan coun-

within fire, 72-67, with 9:25 to play in the period.
AFTER McKINNEY hit a jumper, Baxter
canned a jumper of his own, and Robinson hit
a free throw and a lay-up and Michigan only

That was the closest Michigan could get.
