The long and winding line
In the spirit of the basketball ticket lines
formed nearly a month before the tickets actu-
ally went on sale, a University senior has an-
nounced the genesis of a, queue at Crisler Arena
for the inevitable Beatles reunion concert there.
"There is a list posted somewhere at Crisler,"
Jim Sachs wrote The Daily, and it will be the
only one accepted should tickets ever go on sle."
Further details: "Roll calls will be every second
Saturday, for the first two years," and at least
once aweek thereafter."At each rol call ten
people must show up for each ticket desired,"
and you must have at least 12 pieces of identifica-
tion plus an old Beatles album cover. Sachs says
you should send all inquiries to "BEATES CON-
CERT, c/o University of Michigan," and notes
that none of them will be answered.
Michigan Bell customers will be paying an
extra 14 to 39 cents a month on their telephone
bills, following, approval yesterday by the state
Public Service Commission of a $22 million in-
terim rate hike for the company. The interim
increase, which Bell argued it needed to cover
wage increases, is designed to give them enough
revenue to cover operating costs until a full rate
hike case is decided-probably early next year.

Eat your hearts out, New York and Michi-

million left over from a $442 million, two-year
budget approved in 1975, and there isn't anything

Independent presidential candidate Eugene Mc-
Carthy is taking his third-place finish in Tues-
day's election with all the grace of the father
of a molested three-year-old. Asked if he was
happy with the overall results of his effort, he
snapped back at reporters: "It's not a question
of being happy. Why does one have to be happy?
What line of business are you fellows in, here?"
At his first post-eledtion news confeience, he also
said he may again wage an independent bid for
the White House, but seemed rather indifferent
toward that prospect. "Oh, I don't know," he said.
"I might. What's "the offer?" And on the news
media: "The total positive contribution of the writ-
ing press was the Playboy article ... The writing
press covered the campaign like the National Foot-
ball League playoffs." That makes you the Mon-
day morning quarterback, Gene.
If you think restaurant food, appliance service-
ing and mail delivery are getting worse all the
time - well, you're not'alone. A nationwide sur-
vey of 2,500 adults shows that many Americans
believe most products and services are not as
good as they were five or ten years ago. New
cars and movies drew the worst ratings - with
64 and 62 per cent believing, respectively, that
autos and flicks are worse today than those of
the past. In fact, only three items came out win-
.hers in the survey: airline service,'telephone ser-
vice, and newspapers. We're blushing.

By The Associated Press and United Press International
WASHINGTON-The nation's unemployment rate increased
to 7.9 per cent in October, providing fresh evidence the economy
is stagnating, the government reported yesterday.
The Labor Department's. announcement that the rate of job-
lessness increased from 7.8 per cent in September followed Presi-
dent-elect Jimmy Carter's statement that he might attempt to
counter economic sluggishness by asking Congress for a tax,
cut in January.
"THE PAUSE SEEMS TO BE lasting longer than we expect-
ed," White House Press Secretary Ron Nessen said after the
statistics were released.
The gloomy report, left almost no hope that joblessness
could be reduced below 7 per cent in 1976 as President Ford'

A peaceful solution to the
Mideast conflict is unlikely ac-
cording to Jerusalem's Deputy
Mayor Meron Benvenisti. At
least during his lifetime.
Benvenisti was in Ann Arbor
yesterday, taking a break from
a week long lecture tour of the
state. Interviewed at the Hillel
foundation, he indicated that
a peaceful solution to problems
in the mideast would be a long
time in coming.
"THE problems, the realities

Mliami men's society
toldto admit women
MIAMI (AP) If women are not allowed into Iron Arrow'
- the University of Miami's honor society - then Iron Arrow
must pack its wigwams and leave the campus.
That's the sentiment of Dr. Henry King Sanford, the uni-
versity's president, who has vowed to force the society off
campus if it doesn't admit women.
"THE UNIVERSITY can no longer be a part of any activity
that excludes -members of its academic family only on the basis
that they are women," said Stanford, himself a meiber of the
Besides equality, there is also an issue of money involved.
The U.S. Department of Health, Educatipn and Welfare has
threatened to halt $40 million in federal grants to the univer-
sity if Iron Arrow remains on campus and continues its mem-
bership ban on women.
THE 1,318-MEMBER SOCIETY has until Dec. 30 to agree
to accept women members or disassociate itself from the uni-
versity. This year, for the first time since 1926, Iron Arrow
did not select any new members.
"It's a shame," said John Benedict, a 1971 alumnus and
chief of the society. "A lot of traditions have bitten the dust
around here in the last few years.
A move reportedly is underway to change the group's char-
ter, but similar proposals were rejected in 1972 and 1975.
MEANWHILE, THE INDIAN WAR DRUMS that once were
heard on' campus are now silent. The university refused on
Thursday to give permission for the society to bring its drums
