Hard to believe, but the warm season is only
two months away, and students who want to earn
money for the sweat of their brows this summer

Nancy Longmate of the Office urged students who
have already applied for work-study to check
back with the office because some of the spe-
cifics of the program have chaged.

Patriotic pot
There's no doub at it. Our government works
in strange and wonderful ways. Consider those put-
upon federal employes down at Research Triangle,
N.C. who are toiling away, rolling thousands of
marijuana cigarettes every year. Approximately
one ton of the heavenly weed comes nto the Re-
search Triangle every year to be rolled in a con-
verted cigarette-rolling machine. The stuff, inci-
dentally, is good enough to make Brooks Patter-
son's eyes red. Some 95 varieties of grass are
blended at University of M sstippi research farms
before being shipped to North Carolina in crates
marked "first class." The joints are then neatly
paked - 350 to the can - and shipped off to li-
censed "researchers" in the U.S. and Europe.
Naturally, officials at the research center are a
little uneasy over rumors of rip-offs. You've heard
of -Acapulco Gold, Panamanian Red and Jamaican
Brown? Get ready for Uncle Sam's Mixed.
The old folks at school
If you're under 77-years-old, forget it - you're
just not old enough for Lila Green. Ms Gree of
the Institute of Gerontology, a joit unit of the
University and Wayne State University, is trying
to hunt down elderly Michiganders who have re-
ceived their high school or college diplomas with-
in the last 10 years. The institute will be holding
a festival for the aged in October where thesea

wise, old folks will be honored.
Keep on trunking
Her trunk packed for the last time, her custom-
designed wardrobe tucked away, the grand old
lady of the circus is retiring after 55 years of
stardom. Looking forward to living out her days
munching apples, 7,000-pound Marcella the Ele-
phant will roam with giraffes and zebras at Cir-
cus World in Florida. The oldest of the Ringling
Brothers-Barnum and Bailey elephants, she danced
end stomped in the center ring for 55. years. But
the aging pachyderm did not leave her circus
friends without a farewell party. There was a
huge elephant-shaped cake - which Marcella ate.
The retiring queen was also presented with a
dozen fresh-cut roses. She ate those, too.

By ENID GOLDMAN
On George Washington's birthday,-1974, Sam Lovejoy
toppled a 500-foot steel weather tower - part of a Monta-
gue, Massachusetts nuclear power plant project - to the
ground.
Claiming full responsibility -for "sabotaging that out-
rageous symbol of future nuclear power plants," Lovejoy
hitched a ride to the police station, submitted a four-page
statement about his action, and found himself on the road
to national recognition as a hot-blooded opponent of nu-
clear power.
LOVEJOY VISITED ANN ARBOR this week to tout his
message, and told a crowd of 500 in the Michigan Union
ballroom last night that, "If we continue to follow the
nuclear program we presently have in this country, not
only will we have an energy crisis by the mid-1980s, but a

PITTSBURGH (AP) -
Lloyd McBride, who left
school at age 14 for a fac-
tory job, was the apparent.
winner over rebel Edward
Sadlowski yesterday in the
bitter contest for the presi-
dency of the United Steel-
workers Union (USW).
An unofficial survey by
the Associated Press (AP)
gave the 60-yeartold St.
Louis native a 65 per cent
plurality with almost 500,-
000 votes cast in the 1.4
million-member union.
THE AP figures, compiled
from reports from the union's
district offices, gave McBride
299 877 votes and Sadlowski
198 472 votes with returns from
almost 4,000 of the union's 5,000
locals.
Both candidates also kept
unofficial returns.
Sadlowski's camp disputed the
AP totals, claiming its candi-
date had 171,531 votes to 166,980
for McBride with 2,170 locals re-
porting.
"4I THINK there were a lot of
questionable figures in the dis-
trict offices," said Clem Balan-
off;a Sadlowski aide. "The fact
is we are holding our own."
McBride's staff had its candi-
date ahead by 281 632 to 196,263
at 4,529 locals.
"We could claim victory now
and be safe," McBride said by
telephone from his home.
"We've agreed we will not make
an official claim to victory until
tomorrow."
SAID RETIRING President
1. W. Abel. who had endorsed
McBride: "He has a victory. He
might as well call it."
McBride's major support came
from the South and West, where
most of the locals are small
ones outside the basic steel in-
dustry. In Canada, he took a
sizeable 30,000-vote plurality.

co-wed despiil
By SHELLEY WOLSON
Despite University housing policy and the
threat of. lease termination, various dorm resi-
dents have adopted the convenience of co-ed
bathroorhs.
Sources have confirmed that this situation
does exist within two East Quad halls and one
hall in Alice Lloyd. Upon learning this informa-
tion, housing director John Feldkamp stated,
"My first stance in this matter is to have facul-
ty immediately investigated with lease termina-
tion being the last resort if the students won't
voluntarily stop the practice."
FELDKAMP ADDED, "I will not sanction
any situation of this kind." He indicated he had
learned that investigation has already begun
at Alice Lloyd and that he will "share that
someone had made this observation of East
Quad."
University President Robben Fleming said,
"I feel that it is a breach of faith on the part

of the students. When the Regents authorized
co-ed corridors it was on the committment
of the .students to keep the bathrooms sepa-
rate. I think, these students are failing to keep
the committment made by their predecessors."
Alice Lloyd building director Margot Morrow
countered, "Since it's been drawn to my atten-
tion, I've spoken to staff on the hall and I un-
derstand that the situation is under control."
ONE STAFF MEMBER on the hall would only
say that "it's a real todchy situation" and re-
fused to comment any further.
"It's been a pain in the butt since the issue
broke two years ago," another hall staff mem-
ber complained. "We're all aware of the situa-
tion and we don't want a big hassle to come
down. It's not a big issue here on the hall but
I certainly don't want my life put on the line
because it it."
East Quad building director Lee Kirk affirm-
ed that. "I can't tolerate these things and I

The heat is on to turn the heat
