UJp the middle, Marv!
Be vigilant as you press through the thronging
spectators at the Michigan State game today. One
among them 'seeks your vote. Our own congress-
man, Marvn Esch, is attending the game today;
the, question is, where will he sit? Our graying
Republican Senate candidate went to the Univer-
sity; but his brash young opponent, Don Riegle,
did time both 'in Ann Arbor and at that other
school in East Lansing. If Marv wants to nail
down the Ann Arbor vote, he has to sit with
the Maize and Blue, right? But a senator must
represent all the people of his or her state, cor-
rect? Perhaps the end zone would be a wise
compromise, but will would-be senator Marv run
the risk of beihng passed up and out? Take our
cue, Congressman: better that you stay not too
far to the right, not too far to the left - cap-
ture the whole state with a dazzling run right
up the middle just as the clock runs out.
Mason limes
Things aren't so bad. Mason Hall might have
burned down yesterday, taking the Haven monolith
and the Angell mausoleum with it. But they re-
main, thanks to rumbling trucks of the Ann Arbor
fire department, which surrounded the place about
1:00 yesterday afternoon. Turns out it wasonly
a tiny blaze in a cigarette butt container, but
the department sends a full crew even for such
"smell-of-smoke" alarms. University security per-
sonnel said they get two or three such calls
every month.
Happenings .,..
... begin before most of you will see this. Prof.
W.H.G. Armytage of the University of Sheffield,
England, will lecture on "American Influence on
British Education" at 10 a.m. at the Whitney
Auditorium in the Ed School ... a "Three Ring
Chess Circus" runs from 11 a.m. t,) 9 p.m. at
Briarwood ... Judith Elkin speaks ?t frankly
on "Discovering a History of Jews of Latin Ameri-
ca in the 19th and 20th Century" at noon at the
Center for Continuing Education of Women at
328 Thompson ... Michigan kicks off against Michi-
gan State at 1:30 at Michigan Stadium ... Five
members of the Ann Arbor NOW chapter speak
on NOW's National Bylaws Conference tonight at
8 at the First Unitarian Church on Washtenaw.
Presidential forensics
What were you doing Wednesday night? Are
you one of those now feeling politically guilty
because you watched the first presidential de-
bate but were so bored you didn't watch the
second? There are plenty of you out there. Ac-
cording to an overnight Nielsen poll, 2 million
fewer people watched Ford and Carter duke it
out over nukes and such than watched the do-
mestic policy debate two weeks ago. Eighty-five
million watched the first, whileonly 83 million
were politically conscientious enough to watch the
second. Tell us all, what were you doing Wednes-
day night that could have drawn you away from
such stellar comments as "There is no Soviet
domination over Eastern Europe and there won't
be as long as I am President"?
Going from Katinandu
The American Bicentennial Everest Expedition
was 28,750 feet up Mount Everest yesterday morn-
ing, with only 278 vertical feet to go to the top
of the world's tallest mountain. Dr. Chris Chand-
ler, 28, a Vashon, Wash. physician and Bob Cor-
mack, 30, a Boulder, Colo. glider pilot shoved off
from Katmandu, Nepal on August 3 for the 143-
mile hike to Everest. One wonders if it's worth
it. Their original timetable was jolted by a six-
day blizzard, the wind on the mountain has been
blowing at 50 nmiles per hour, and it's fifteen
to twenty below' zero at night, (and that's 7,000
feet down the mountain from where they are

now.) If they make it, they'll be only the sec-
ond American team to climb all /9,028 feet of
the peak. Other members of the expedition stayed
behind, further down the mountain.
Nothing to sneeze at
Angelo Antiero had a rather valuable diamond
in his pocket, and the police in Vercelli, Italy, had
caught him. Antiero had been flashing a lot of
money around town - and had a record for pos-
session of stolen property--so the constabulary
naturally wanted to take the man in for question-
ing. Once they hauled him in, they asked him to
clean out his pockets. That's when Antiero became
desperate. Palming the diamond so the cops
wouldn't see it, he discreetly placed it some-
where he thought would be a safe hiding place-
up his nose. "He was panting and making such
a whistling noise that I pinched his nose," ex-
plained one officer. The diamond popped out.

From Wire Service Refforts
President Ford and Jim-
my Carter each attacked
the other's honesty yester-
day and the Democrat can-
didate charged his oppo-
nent was "brainwashed"
into believing the Soviets
don't dominate their East-
ern European neighbors.
With only 24 days left
before the election, Ford
and Carter used some of
the strongest language of
their campaigns. The

President was trying to re-
coup some of the political
points lost in the foreign
policy debate two nights
earlier - but Carter was
equally determined to take
full advantage of Ford's

Romney, whose 1968 presiden-
tial campaign was crippled by
his admission he had been
"brainwashed" by Pentagon

dead in uad
A University sophomore was found dead in his South Quad
dormitory room last night. Police said John Oliver, an LSA
sophomore from Niles, Mich., had suffered a gunshot wound
to the head.
Ann Arbor Police Captain Robert Conn -said,' "We're carry-
ing it as a sudden death ... it appears to be a suicide, but we
don't know."
said, "It's a suicide, that's all we know."
Conn said that the medical examiner report will be released
sometime today or Monday, and would cite the official cause
of death.
The medical examiner at the scene refused to comment.
CONN ADDED that a shotgun of the type commonly used for
hunting ducks was found in Room 3912, of Taylor house. A re-
ceipt for the purchase of the gun, according to Conn, was also
found in the room.
According to a housing security spokesperson, residents on the
corridor became concerned when Oliver dropped out, of sight for
three or four days. He said that repeated knocks on Oliver's door
went unanswered.
The spokesperson added that the residents had called housing
security last ,night, but security personnel found the door chained
when they tried to break into the room.
AN ACRID stench was discerned in the hallway.
South Quad residents, at the urging of their resident director,
last night refused to divulge any information on Oliver.
The incident was the second student death in the past eight
days. Last week, a freshwoman in the School of Natural Resurces
was found shot to death in the Arb. The suspect in that case is still
being sought.

South Vietnam.
"Apparently when Mr. Ford
went to Poland, as happened to
George Romney last tim6, he
was brainwashed,"Carter said.
And Carter - now apparently
recovering from the recent
mistakes of his own canpaign
- demanded Ford call a formal
news conference to "tell the
truth, the whole truth and noth-
ing but the truth."
THE DEBATE statement --
that "there is no Soviet domi-
nation of Eastern Europe" --
dogged Ford all day long.
At his first appearance, be-
fore a group of business and.
nrofessional men in Los An-
geles, Ford initially avoided
the subject by delivering in-
stead his standard criticism of
Carter's tax and spending pro-
posals. lut when he turned to
questions, there it was.
One man said he was more
concerned about Eastern Eu-
rope than southern Africa and
asked if Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger could be sent
to negotiate greater freedom
for the East Bloc countries.
singer suggestion, Ford for the
first time admittedly amended
his statement from Wednesday
night's debate.
"What I meant to say," Ford
told his questioner, was that the
United States does not recog-
nize Soviet domination of East-
ern Europe and never will.
That's what Ford had told a
University of Southern Cali-
fornia crowd Thursday, but at
that time he didn't call it a
clarification or retract his pre-
yious remarks.
To laughter from his audi-
ence, Ford- said of his debate
comment: "It has been alleged
by some that I wasn't as pre-
cise as I should have been the
other day."
BUT FORD MAY have raised -
the whole affair again when he
went on to say: "The Poles .
don't believe that they are go-
ing to be forever dominated,
if they are, by the Soviet Un-
As Ford himself said at a
later appearance: "We don't
make a mistake one day and
anologize for it the, next."
Later, Ford issued his second
clarification of the day about
eastern Europe, saying he hop-
ed to "put an end to this mis-

In an era when Wolverine football and tedious lectures
dominate the Michigan campus, students here are proving there's
more, to life than just Bo and biology notes: They really know
how to put away their liquor.
And when it comes down to what potent potables to guz-
zle, the majority of students would rather just relax with a
good, cold beer.
SO ARE THE RESULTS of a recent poll conducted by the
Daily of random Diag strollers. Of the 160 students queried (90
men and 70 women) about their drinking habits, a meager 8
per cent confirmed they were tee-totallers, while a fifth of those
who do take a nip at least now and then prefer beer.
More men abstain from alcohol than women (11 to 4 per
cent), but women beer guzzlers (10 per cent) can't hold a
candle to their male counterparts (28 per cent).
As for hard liquor, the Diag set expressed a thirst for
