fields, and entire villages remains.

ater, February 17 through 20, as a benefit for Friendshipment, people
to people aid for the reconstruction of Vietnam. One dollar from each
ticket will go for materials to help Vietnam rebuild itself.

THE DORM councils of Alice
Lloyd (home of the Pilot Pro-
gram), East Quad, (home of the
Residential College), and Mosh-
er-Jordan voted to appropriate
funds out of dorm dues. The
University Activities Center
(UAC) also allocated money to
the presentation, as did Mich-
igan Student Assembly (MSA),
LSA Student Government
(LSASG), and the Engineering
Council.
Jeff Lebow, a freshman engi-
neering student, coordinated the
lectures.
"Although I was skeptical. at
first about anything having to do
with the supernatural,," he said,
"I really flipped when I heard
these fantastic stories and read
documented reports about some
amazing parapsychology cases."
Lebow said he thought stu-
dents would be interested in a
parapsychology presentation, as
the University offers no courses
dealing with the topic.
NOT EVERYONE was so en-
thiisias'ic. Vociferous opposition
was expressed by dorm resi-
dents.
Mosher-Jordan House Council
member Sheila Fitzgerald said
she thought the dorm monies
could have been better used to
back educational and public
service workshops. Fitzgerald
said she was put off by the "un-
professional approach" of the
parapsychologists.

LSASG treasurer Jane McCas-
lin defended her organization's
allocation. She said that while
the twelve elected members of
LSASG could not be sure what
would appeal ' to all students,
they could assume that such a
presentation would be interest-
ing to most.
Residential College-East Quid
Assembly representative Luke
Jordan stood behind the speak-
ers: "Our impression was that
their work has much scientific
basis and that we are lucky to
get them at all before they con-

tinue their research in England
and become world-renowned."
David Laverty, a Lloyd fresh-
man, is suspicious of the mo-
tives of the two speakers, and
said that the event is being
"played up too much and is
really a.promotional campaign.
Most serious researchers don't
exploit their subject matter in
such a fashion. They're just try-
ing to seek publicity for their
cause and the movie that is to
be based on their work."
Another dorm resident, Roy
Frye, expressed his disinterest
in appraising the situation:
"I don't believe in parapsy-
chology - it's like a fanatic re-
ligion," he said. "I don't like
seeing my dorm dues being
wasted on two magicians."

because .he is in violation of a
section of the All-Campus Con-
stitution. The document directs
that an MSA seat become va-
cant upon the holder's gradua-
tion.
Since Luker did not enroll as
a continuing student before the
beginning of the current term,
the CSJ declared him ineligible
for MSA membership.
However, the ruling, written
by CSJ member Bob Morton,
does not mean an MSA meln-
ber automatically loses his or
her seat upon graduation. If an
MSA member enrolls at the be-
ginning of the following term,
that person will retain member-
ship, the opinion said.
LUKER HAD considered en-
rolling as a Non-Candidate for
Degree student before CRISP
ended last Friday. But even if
hg had registered, he still would
have lost his seat because he
failed ,to meet the January 7
enrollment deadline.
Luker's seat will remain va-
cant until April, when the next
MSA campus elections are held.
Luker, who served as MSA
president from April to Decem-
ber, 1976 expressed little con-
cern last week over the appar-
ent finale of his three-year in-
volvement with the organization.
He is now managing the City
Council campaign of First Ward
candidate Zane Q.lukalns.

Krishna group, and called the
restaurant a misuse of the
Krishna name.
"WE DO HAVE a chain of
restaurants under the name 'Go-
vinda'," said Ramananda Raya
from Detroit's Krishna ashram
(residential and spiritual unit.)
"These people in Ann Arbor
just took the name," he con-
tinued. "It's along the lines of
a misrepresentation."
When Ann Arbor Govinda's
opened. Raya said he was "dis-
mayed" to learn that fHare
Krishna had failed to secure ex-
clusive right to the Govinda
trademark.
"THE PERSON who started it
used to be a (Krishna) devotee,
but he gave up that life. He took
up sinful activities such as
gambling and liquor," -Raya

added, but refused to identify
the specific owner of whom he
spoke.
Raya stated that the food at
Ann Arbor Govinda's did not
meet the dietary requirements
of the Krishna philosophy. He
said that his group had been
offered the job of managing Go-
vinda's but had refused.
Co-owner Stavapriay denied
any attempt to represent Go-
vinda's as connected to the
Krishna movement. However.
Govinda's . walls are covered
wi'h paintings of the life of
Krishna (Govinda), and former
employees report that the kitch-
en staff was expected to make
offerings to Krishna on an altar
in the back of the restaurant.
GOVINDA'S MENU also im-
plies that the restaurant is
staffed by Krishna devotees.
"Here at Govinda's," it reads,
"we are preserving in practice
the ancien Vedic culture . .

We at Govinda's would like to
acknowledge our eternal indebt-
edness to our spiritual leader
and guide, His Divine Grace A.
C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prab-
hupada."
Swami ,Prabhupada is the
head of the Hare Krishna sect.
Meanwhile, the dismissals at
Govinda's have left many form-
er employees in a precarious fi-
nancial condition. "We have no
money, no work,". complained
Paula Hickey. She and other-
former staffers expressed fear
that management would try to
block them from-'receiving un-
employment benefi's by claim-
ing that they had quit rather
than been -laid off.
"I'm terribly devastated that
this beautiful cooperative thing
- you can see the brotherhood
nd sisterhood we have here (at
the employees meeting) - has
been brushed," Kathy Shenkar
remarked.

SHORTLY AFTER the two
largest Chicago newspapers
printed a stof'y about the book
on January 26, the Northwest-
ern campus switchboard was
jammed as thousands of peo-
ple called to object to Butz's
theory.
A Jewish faculty group print-
ed an advertisement in last
Friday's Daily Northwestern to
"express profound sorrow and
outrage ... at the allegation that
the murder of millions of Euro-
pean Jews is a hoax." The ad
proclaims the signers' belief in
academic freedom, while ex-
pressing concern that the book
might add academic legitimacy
to heretofore non-academic anti-
Semitic trends.
Rabbi Marc Gellman, head of
the Evanston chapter of Hillel,
said the Northwestern admin-
istration's reaction to the con-
troversy thus'- far has been to
defend Butz's right of free
speech, while failing to object

strongly enough to Butz' s views.
A NORTHWESTERN Univer-
sity official, Raymond Mack, is-
sued a statement last week in
which he indicated that the
school's administration dis-
agrees with Butz's, statements.
The statement was endorsed by
the president of the University
Board of Trustees.
Talk siow host Steve Edwards
interviewed Butz on his Chica-
go-based ABC televis show
Friday night. He descbed the
professor as "very unomforta-
ble" and "somewhat defensive."
At one point, Edwards asked
Butz if he was an "overt anti
Semite." After a pause, Butz
replied: "No." Edwards said of
Butz, "I don't think he convinc-
ed anybody (of his theory)."
A survivor of Auschwitz and
a woman who says she lost over
40 relatives in concentration
camps were among the guests
for the second half of Edwards'
show. Edwards invited Butz to
stay, but he refused.
Butz camre to Northwestern in
1966, and has tenure.
