This time there will be no cheering crowds, no
windy, political stump speeches, and no renditions
of 'Hail to the Chief.' However, it is doubtful that
anyone will be any less excited when former Uni-
versity football star, Grand Rapids congressman
and, oh yes, President of the United States Jerry
Ford rolls into town April 4, complete with sun-
tan, golfclubs and lecture notes. As things stand
right now, adjunct professor of political science
Ford will spend approximately a week here lec-
turing to unspecified classes. Meanwhile, Betty
Ford will also be bopping about on her usual whirl-
wind schedule. Among other activities, she'll be
thefeatured speaker at the April 5 kick-off lunch-
eon for this year's Washtenaw County Cancer Cru-
sade. Too bad the Fords couldn't have come a few
days sooner. They'd be sure to receive an honored
spot at the Hash Bash.
For all of you who are curious about energy
issues, Future Worlds and Washtenaw County
Friends of the Earth are sponsoring the Mid-
West Energy Conference, to be held March 27-29
here on campus. The conference will deal with a
wide spectrum of energy-related topics including
nuclear power development, energy conservation,
alternative energy sources, jobs and energy, and
energy policy in general. The conference will lead-

DETROIT - Wisconsin's
Steve Alley's overtime goal
from right in front of Mich-

gave the Badgers a 6-5 win
over Michigan and the
National Ice Hockey cham-
The goal, scored only 23
seconds into the extra peri-
od, touched off a boister-
ous crowd of over 5,000 Bad-

streaming out onto the ice.
They sang their unique
"Varsity," while cheering

Michigan fought valiantly to
erase a 5-2 deficit early in the
third period, but all thoughts of
a Wolverine victory fell through
with Alley's goal.
"I told my kids, after the
overtime; that it will mean more
in ten years," said Badger
coach Bob Johnson.
"I COULDN'T say if this one
is more satisfying than the first
one," Johnson added, "but we

and answered questions as
gracefully as a losing coach
"WE SHOWED a lot of char-
acter tonight. I thought we out-
played Wisconsin since the mid-

Both coaches expressed the
same opinion about the over-
time. "We were lucky the game
ended in a tieu" said Johnson.

"the game shouldn't have gone

FARRELL referred to Dan
Hoene's dash down the ice with
a couple of minutes left in the
game. He took the shot, the
puck dribbled behind Wisconsin
goalie Julian Baretta and laid
in the crease, but a Badger de-
fenseman got to the puck first
and cleared it to the sideboards.

Elroy "Crazy legs" Hirsch was
ecstatic after the game and
tears were visible in his eyes.
"I'm thrilled to death, thrilled

kids and they earned the title."

Palmer turned his head from

ACTOR ELLIOTT GOULD discusses "'Cinema and the
Role of the -Actor" last night at Rackham Auditorium.
Gould's appearance was part of the film and lecture fes-
tival honoring American director Robert Altman.

"I'm here for. excitement," said Elliott Gould, and he
provided plenty last night in a frequently madcap discus-
sion of himself and his long association with Robert Alt-
man, director of M*A*S*H and Nashville.
His right thumb covered with black tape, the unpredic-
table actor joked, theorized, and even sang his daughter's
favorite "driving-in-the-car" song for a Rackham Auditori-
um audience composed largely of acting and film students.
GOULD, STAR OF THREE ALTMAN FILMS, fielded a
wide variety of questions about Altman, whom he called
"the father figure of American film people" and, in a non-
academic vein, pressed one spectator into service in a wild,
rambling interchange that eventually centered on the ques-
tion of faith.
"'Faith," Gould reminded him, "is unquestioning belief.
It's life, what we're all about."
Accentuating the positive, Gould talked about the identity
that acting helped him create, dismissing his critics by

While there will be no lines to
wait in for April CRISP appoint-
ments, the University has taken
measures to help students - pri-
marily seniors - who will be
handicapped by the new system.
In addition, the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly (MSA) and the
Administration will conduct a
survey at- MSA elections next
month and at registrationsto de-
termine what type of appoint-
ment system is most responsive
to student needs. Results of the
survey will be considered in de-
veloping a more permanent
CRISP appointment system to
be implemented next fall.
AS AN INTERIM solution to
the long lines and inequities in
the old system. a University-
wide scheme of assigning ap-
pointments on a random basis
within a series of eight alpha-
betic groups was adopted.
Although this system elimin-
ates appointment lines and is
more equitable for each of the
University's different schools, it
does not give literary college
(LSA) seniors priority for early
dates as did the previous sys-
To help seniors who fear being
closed out of their classes next
term, a special letter has been
sent to each LSA department
requesting members to take par-
ticular care that seniors are ad-
mitted to their desired courses.
"THE DEAN'S-Office has re-
minded departments that rhey
should be as responsive as hey
can to seniors, but it is hard to
predict how various depart-
ments are apt to respond " said

STUDENTS STUDY MIDEAST:
Class simulates conflict
By GREGG KRUPA
You may not realize it, but Yassir Arafat was
assassinated last year by leftist Palestinians for
selling out to Western business interests.
All this happened over a gameboard, of course,
but it's just one of a number of possibilities when
60 political science students get together and play
a game designed to simulate the Arab-Israeli con-
THIS YEAR'S battle is taking place on the
second floor of the School of Education, and Ar-
mageddon - if it comes - is today.
The students, members of Clem Henry's Politi-
cal Science 353 class in the Arab-Israel conflict,
are using the knowledge they have accumulated
during the semester to take on roles of key Mid-
dlp East figures. The gahfe simulation projects
the players up to twelve months into the future,
probing the possibilities of that conflict.
Leonard Suransky, a graduate student in the
School of Education who designed the game, ex-
plained its intent: "We have the lectures, the
books and the history. But we take a dive into
the future. You've got some information to work
on, and you just take off and do it. But there is a
basis in hard fact."
THE GAME simulation concept was introduced
into the course through the collective efforts of
Suransky, Henry and Edgar Taylor, who once
taught the course in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
"Gaming takes the whole sort of deadness of
a lecture course and throws it out the window,"
Taylor explained. "Students become members of
their country in the first week or two of the
course and their roles are decided from there."
The first game simulation was brought into the
classroom four years ago and lasted only 90 min-

Battered wives discussed
By JANET KLEIN
"We think violence is like
drinking - a sickness," Erin
Pizey yesterday told a School
of Edu>cation audience who gath-
ered for an afternoon workshop
focusing on battered women.
Thanks to the efforts of Piz-
zey, founder of Chiswick Wom-
en's Aid -- a ref"ge for bat-
tered women - violence in the
home has become recognized as
a problem in England.
SHE EXPLAINED that the
Chiswick house advocates an
"open door policy" and never
tlrrs anyone away. But she
added that the facility, which
originally received $50,000 in
g-vernment grants, is now des-
titiate because the money was
withdrawn for overcrowding.
Todavthe refuge operates on
the welfare funds which most of
the women receive. The rest of
the money must be borrowed.

that most battered women and
their husbands come from fami-
