Head count
The last little noggin has been counted and the
tally is in. You might be interested to know that
you are one of 33,250 students enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus. That's
312 fewer tuition checks than last year. Enroll-
ment figures for individual cdlleges and schools
reveal that the College of Engineering registered
the largest increase of students - from 4,115 in
winter, 1976 to 4,429 this year. The biggest drop
in enrollment came in' the School of Education
where there were 3,175 last year and only 2,639
this year. As for Literature, Science and Arts,
enrollment is 15,524, as compared to last year's
The beat goes on
Were you wondering why we can still publish
the Daily even though our printers belong to the
striking AFSCME union? Bet you thought you'd
caught us contradicting ourselves - supporting
the strike on our Editorial page, but using scab
labor to put out a paper. Well never fear -
the Daily is still the bastion of liberalism you
always thought it was. We aren't using scabs, it's
just that in the interest of keeping students in-
formed, AFSCME has asked our printers to stay
on the job. Hope that answers all your questions.
...start off today with a reminder for those
of you who are filling out Project Outreach intern
applications that the deadline is March 4 ... at
11 a.m., the Student Support Committee for
AFSCME will hold a rally on the Diag ... at the
Ecumenical Campus Center at noon today, Brian
Kuttner of the South African Liberation Commit-
tee will speak on "Inside-South Africa: The Mean-
ing of Apartheid" ... also at noon, these will be
"Music at Midday" in the Pendleton Arts Center
of the Union ... Anne Waldman will hold a poetry
reading in the Pendleton Rm. at 4:10 ... and, lo
and behold, you can go to the Pendleton Rm.
at 7 tonight and listen to John Trudell, chairman
of the American Indian Movement and Selo Black
Crow, who'll speak on "Native American Sovereign-
ty"...and after you're good and sick of the Pen-
dleton Rm., you can mosey on over to Rackham
Auditorium to hear a free .concert entitled "Con-
- trasts," featuring the music of Bartok, Mozart and
Brahms. Musicians will include William Doppman,
pianist, Gordon Staples, violinist, David Shifrin,
clarinetist. Boogie on down, fellas.
The great cover-up
You can't judge a book by its cover, the old
adage goes, and no one knows it better than An-
drew McNair of Hartford, Connecticut. It seems
McNair went out the other day and picked up
Alex Haley's "Roots." However, upon settling back
to read it, McNair sensed that something was
not quite right. About ten pages into the book,
it dawned on McNair that he wasn't following the
heroic struggle of Kunta Kinte but rather the graci-
ous, Old South existence of Scarlet O'Hara, Rhett
Butler, Mammy and the rest of the "Gone with
the Wind" gang. Bamboozled representatives of
Doubleday company, which publishes both books,
theorize that the "Roots" bookcover found its way
onto a copy of "Gone with the Wind" by way of
a mix-up at the printing plant. Pass the grits.
Keep the faith
Of all the things car salesmen have been ac-
cused of, under-confidence is-not a trait that readi-
ly comes to mind. But according to Detroiter Joe
Girad, that is the largest obstacle any huckster
has to overcome. Joe siould know. He's the num-
ber one car salesman in the world, by authority
of the trustworthy Guinness Book of World Rec-
ords. And after ten years in the numero uno

spot, Toe is naAw revealing the secrets of his rec-
ord-breaking sales technique. "The first person
you have to sell in " your life is yourself," Joe
preaches. "This was my problem in life - I
used to leave the house a non-believer." Now
Joe sports a gold "1" pin in his lapel. "I put
it there because I'm 'the greatest person. There's
no one in this world better than me. Remember
one thing, when God put you on this world he
made you one of a kind. And that makes you.
the No. 1 person in the world. -'I ain't no better
than you and you ain't no better than me. Tihere's
nobody better than nobody." Okay, all you folks
got that? Now get out there and sell!

contract demands

When representatives of the American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal Employes (AFSCME, Local -183) sit down
with the University at the bargaining table today, they will be
offering essentially the same economic proposals they offered
when they first sat down last November.
Although Chief University negotiator William Neff would not
comment on the union's proposals last night, several months ago
he had called them "unreasonable."
AFSCME BARGAINING TEAM members will demand that
the University "take the cap off the cost of living" and offer
"a $1.04 (per hour) wage increase over 23 months" ending Sep-
tember 30, 1979.
The union also demands that no holidays be taken away from

union members.

postpones meeting

The Ugandan announcement
monitored in Washington ap-
parently took the State Dep art-
ment by surprise.
Kampala radio said Amin told
a small group of Americans at
Entebbe they were "brothers
and sisters" to Ugandans and
he intended to honor them and
all other Americans in the coun-
try at the mass meeting tomor-
The Narobi newspaper Daily
Nation, however, reported that
armed plainclothesmen have
been following the Americans
day and night.1

In Washington, President
Carter sent a message to Amin
thanking him for his assur-
ances that the lives of U. S.
citizens in Uganda were not in
danger. A White House spokes-
man said the message was sent
through the West German Em-
bassy, which represents the
United States in Uganda.
IN ITS earlier broadcasts, ra-
dio Kampala quoted Amin as
saying President Carter "was
still new and young in office"
and not quite familiar with Af-
rican affairs. It said .Amin had
told a Saudi Arabian diplomat
that Carter should have studied

the situation carefully and
found out "the true facts" be-
fore making any public com-
At the same time, Amin was
said to have told,the Saudi
charge that the Americans in
Uganda were secure and well
and that Amin "has no problem
at all" with them.

Love says we must
choose a new future
"I believe that a set of images of the future has been painted
in our minds; and that certain things are happening right now,
such as the energy crisis, that are causing those images to break
down, and leaving us with just a vacuum," Sam Love told a crowd
of over 150 at the Rackham Amphitheatre last night.
Writer and environmental activist Love's slide presentation
and lecture, entitled "Remember Tomorrow," was part of the Fu-
ture Worlds lecture series.

LOVE'S WIDE-RANGING talk touched on topics, from solar
houses to flying cities to World War II advertising campaigns.
Love said Americans. have a view of the future that doesn't
coincide with reality anymore. He noted how energy-intensive
many former views of the future have been. "It's an image many
of the national publications have projected. It may be that this
future that we've projected for ourselves will have to be totally
re-evaluated (because of the energy crisis)," he said.
Love stressed the role that advertising by major corporations
during World War II played in building American's views of the
future. Since the major industries were so busy producing arms,
they could only offer consumers promisest of things to come, rath-
