Trouble
Oh, they've got trouble right here in Arbor
city. With a capital "T," and that stands for
"tickets."Sometime earlier this week a theatri-
cally inclined thief made off with a stack of tick-
ets to UAC Musket Theatre's The Music Man from
the UAC office. The theft wasn't discovered un-
til yesterday, and Robert Bianco of Musket said
a search of records is on to determine exactly
which tickets are missing. 29 tickets have already
been found on a window ledge near the court
house, but Bianco believes others may still be at
large. If you have a ticket for section eight of
Sunday night's performance which was sold to
you by a man in a raincoat with beady eyes, check
with UAC. Otherwise you'll be mighty embarrassed
when they turn you away at the door.
End of the line
Put away your camping gear - this year your
CRISP registration date will be printed on your
verification form, not issued as a separate ticket.
In past terms students have waited in line at
Angell Hall for as much as 14 hours simply to
get an early registration date. Under the new
system times will be assigned at random, but
dates will be assigned by splitting the alphabet
into eight groups and assigning each group three
days. The days for each group will be rotated every
term so that each student will have a chance to
be "first" once. The new system means a drop
in business for ticket forgers and late-night pizza
deliveries, but University officials hope it will cure
the problem of lines. Verification forms will be
available Monday for most students.

It was all very mysterious. Announcements in
the Daily calling for meetings which never oc-
cured. People appearing at houses for meetings
which were never to be. But behind it all was not
international intrigue but a misunderstanding on
our'part. To all those folks who followed our ad-
vertisement for the Affirmative Action Committee
of the Inter-Cooperative Council and showed up
at various non-meetings around campus, and the
Committee itself, we apologize. The Committee is
still trying to interest minority students in giving
the co-op experience a try, and will hold an abso-
lutely genuine meeting at Stevens' Co-op, 816 S.
Forest, on April 7 at 5:00. No kidding.

AFSCME leader

The name of Joel Block, Pr,

"We are continuing our investi-
gation."
CITY POLICE CHIEF Walter
Krasny last nightbwould only
confirm that the bomb threat
is still under investigation. He
would not say whether Block
had in fact been named a sus-
pect.
The threat was allegedly call-
ed in to the police department
prior to a "labor solidarity
demonstration" held outside the
Administration Building at noon.-
The rally brought together lead-
ers of local labor unions sup-
porting the AFSCME strike.
Block, like others suspended
by the administration, faces pos-

sible loss of his job. He was
reportedly at an AFL-CIO con-
ference in Lansing yesterday,
and could not be reached for
comment.
THE UNION president's sus-
pension came as only a slight
surprise to other AFSCME of-
ficials, who earlier said they ex-
pected Block to be part of the
University's "head-hunting."
Of those ' initially suspended
this week, 17 workers have now
been formally discharged, two
have received disciplinary lay-
offs, and nine have been clear-
ed and sent back to their jobs
on campus, Barthelemy said.

WASHINGTON O) - Secretary of State Cyrus Vance will be
greeted by some heat and uncertainty when he goes to Moscow
to set down new American proposals for a nuclear arms control
agreement.
Key advisers accompanying the secretary on the eight-day
trip to the Soviet Union and A estern Europe starting last night,
said the negative elements would come in the form of Soviet
questioning about U. S. human rights policies.

Imagine Robben Fleming dressed in a brown
cassock and sandals and living on the third floor
of South Quad and you will realize the difference
between the University of Michigan and little
Siena College. Rev. Hugh Hines, president of the
small New York religious school, has taken up
residence in one of the dorms because he doesn't
want to lose contact with his students. "During
the day, I carry on the work of the college," he
says. "Living in the dorm is a pastoral outlet. It's
enjoyable for me personally." A pastoral outlet?
Mary Markley is hardly the first place that springs
to mind, but one has to wonder what things would
be like if disgruntled Quaddies were always wait-
ing for Frank Rhodes to get out of the shower or
nailing Billy Frye's door shut.

When the new $300,000 bikeway connecting Ann Arbor
with Ypsilanti opens in 1978, 'U" student Stan Sebo and
other cyclists will be able to roll off into the wide open
spaces, free from pothole-ridden streets and reckless
automobile drivers.
Bikers to pedal
onto new path
By DENNIS SABO
Hard-pedaling bicyclists will be able to steer off poten-
tially treacherous roads next year onto a new $300,000 bike
path that will connect the University with Eastern Michi-
gan University and the surrounding Ypsilanti area.
The 12-mile long bike path will begin at Nichols Drive
in the Arboretum and run along the Huron River to Ford,
Lake in Ypsilanti. The 8-foot wide path will provide ac-
cess to North Campus, University Hospital, as well as sev-
eral area parks.
THE BIKE PATH will also boast a wooden foot bridge
over the Huron River and a culvert under the Conrail rail-
road tracks near North Campus.
The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Urban Area Transportation
Study Committee (UATS) has allocated $216,000 in federal
funds for the bike path's construction. The remaining $84,000
has already been guaranteed by the cities of Ann Arbor,
Ypsilanti and the Washtenaw County Road Commission.
Construction on the bike path will begin next spring.

Reliable Realty Management
Co. is slapping the Ann Arbor
Tenants Union (TU) with a
$1.125 million lawsuit.
It is the second realty firm
this week to file suit against TU.
Trony Associates has decided
to revive a year-old lawsuit -
also in the million dollar range-
for obstruction of business prac-
tices and 14 other charges.
RELIABLE is filing damages
of $50 000 for breach of contract,
$75 000 for wrongful interference
with contractual relations and $1
million for libel and slander.
"Of course we don't think that
any of the charges are true,"
TU Leeal Coordinator Kim Kel-
ler said. "'We think she (Reli-
able owner Edith Epstein) just
concocted this suit to harrass us.
It is something we kind of ex-
pect and we've learned to
handle, just because of the kind
of organization we are," she
said.
Edith Epstein refused to talk

Kelle explained. "That means
that TU must be involved in any
elations that go on between Re-
liable and the tenants. When
new leases were signed, the Ten-
ants Union wasn't contacted.
Rent was really high for the
new people who were moving
in." she said.
Meanwhile, Reliable tenants
are continuing their 15-month-
old strike. Negotiations have not
taken place for three months.
"She (Epstein) won't talk to
us," Keller said. "About a week
ago we exchanged offers. We
rejected her offer and she i e-
jected ours."

Kamisar is one of only ten who
fit that description.
"I THINK I'M unorthodox -
controversial - in the way I
teach. I take very strong pQsi-

tions," Kamisar said in an in-
terview. "My teaching is a re-
action against law school days,
where I didn't think we got
much out of the teachers. They
didn't give us enough of them-
selves."
But Kamisar is not like those
professors he remembers so
well. Many students speak in
superlatives - flamboyant, bril-
liant, impressive - when they
describe Kamisar.
Bill Brunstad, a first year stu-
dent, admires Kamisar. "He's
great. It's exciting to take a
class with him. He's really pro-
vacative."
A man of medium build and
stature, Kamisar is at once in-
tense and relaxed. He creates
a comfortable atmosphere in
the classroom, often sparking
a lively exchange between him-
self and students.
SPECIALIZING in criminal
and constitutional law, Kamisar
began teaching at the Univer-
sity in 1964. In the fall of 1976,
