Blue roses!
Bad news may travel fast, but good news also
happens to get around in a hurry. Such was the
case with our Sunday edition which described, in
delicious detail, the Wolverine's stunning win over
Ohio State. Every copy of that paper, containing
the 2" tall banner headline "Blue Roses!" was
sold, and we're still getting phone calls asking
for more. In the face of such a gratifying response,
we have printed another 350 copies of Sunday's
Daily. If you'd like one, stop by our offices at 420
Maynard St. Get 'em while they're hot.
Happenings .. .
are sparse today, as the early exodus for
Thanksgiving break commences. The undergradu-
ate economics association holds a brown-bag lunch
with Prof. James Adams at noon in rm. 102 of the
Econ Bldg. . : . Also at noon Greg Hesterberg,
chairman of PIRGIM's state board of directors,
speaks about his organization at the Ecumenical
Campus Center, 921 Church. Lunch there is 75
cents. The Pendleton room's Music at Midday
program features a free woodwind quintet recital,
that's on the second floor of the Union . . . The
U of M skit team meets in the Kuenzel rm. of the
Union at 7 . . . The Spartacus Youth League holds
a class entitled "For Revolutionary Leadership of
the Working Class, 7:30, rm. 3207 of the Union.
Lack of public interest prompted Dallas Mayor
Robert Folsom last week to cancel 'services com-
memorating the assassination of President John
Kennedy 13 years ago yesterday. But a flood of
protesting phone calls changed his mind, and a
public prayer, vigil was held yesterday at the city's
Kennedy Memorial. "It's a strange thing," said
John Sissom, head of Dallas' Kenne iy Museum,
who believed that there should be memorial ser-
vices. "The mayor canceled the ceremonies be-
cause of lack of attendance and because people
didn't support it and now they apparently want to
continue it." Less than 100 people attended the
ceremonies last year.
She liked Ike
The newest member of the kiss-and-tell school of
history is Kay Summersby, former President
Dwight Eisenhower's British aide and driver
during World WarII. In a book to be posthumously
published, she confirms that she had a long-ru-
mored affair with the allied commander, but that
his impotence kept it from ever being consum-
mated. "For years I never thought of making
love,"tshe quoted him as saying on one occasion.
"And then when I did . . . When it had been on
my mind for weeks, I failed." Summersby finished
writing the book shortly before she died in Janu-
ary, 1975.
Terra project
Dan Holtel, a Cincinnati high school student,
will probably get an A in his law enforcement class
for completing what must be the most macabre
project ever at Scarlet Oaks Vocationa School.
The ambitious little tyke built a full size electric
chair, perfect in every detail to the one at the
Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville
except for the plug, which is of a type that cannot
be inserted into a conventional outlet. Holtel's chair
was displayed during National Law Enforcement
Week last month and now sits covered by a tar-
paulin in a classroom corner. Holtel, a junior, is
not sure whether capital punishment should be
permitted, but said'he "wouldn't think twice about
using the electric chair on some people, like mass
murderers." Swell, Dan.

Child's play
Computers are becoming so commonplace in
our culture that they have, for some of us, be-
come child's play. This piece of progress almost
became the ruination of the finance department for
the city of Carlsbad, Calif. They recently discover-
ed that their computer had inexplicably erased an
entire day's work. After three days of bewildered
in restigation, they finally figured out what hap-
pened. The office's cleaning woman brings her
six-year-old son to work with her, and he had ap-
parently been amusing himself by typing on the
computer input terminal. He managed to come up
with a sequence of symbols that the comnlter in-
terpreted as an order to shut down. The computer
room is now locked at nieht.
O tthe ini side

Now that the football team has won its wa,
to the 1977 Rose Bowl, the biggest question of
many students' minds is how to get a ticket.
According to Al Renfrew, the athletic depart
ment's ticket director, Michigan has been allotte
20,000 tickets for the January 1 game with thi
University of Southern California (USC) in sunnr
Pasadena, which will be sold both individual],
and as part of a tour package for students; fac
ulty and staff.
BOTH RENFREW and Thomas Easthope, as
sistant vice-president for student affairs, promise
that 20,000 tickets are more than enough, and tha
students will be given top priority.
"Students have first priority, that's a Big Tee
rule," said Easthope. "We don't consider ticket,
a problem."





For those not wishing to take a tour, individual
tickets will be sold at Crisler Arena on Monday,
November 29 and Tuesday, November 30. The tic-
kets will cost $15.50 each and will be on sale
from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, and 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Tuesday.
THE METHOD for obtaining individual tickets
will be similar to last year's Orange Bowl sys-
tem. Students will be given a receipt redeemable
in Los Angeles for the actual ticket.
However, unlike last year, there will be no
check-in system to keep a place on line. Students
will simply come to Crisler during sale hours.
Renfrew stresses there should be no reason to
worry about getting a ticket, because of their
wide availability.

"PEOPLE won't need to line up early or any-
thing," he said. "If two people want to sit togeth-
er, they don't have to go together here, they have
to go together when they pick up their tickets in
Students will be required to present validated
student I. D. cards and it's one, ticket to a cus-
tomer. Renfrew advises having a second piece
of I.D. handy.
To redeem a ticket in California, students must
present two pieces of I.D. "We're trying to pro-
tect the students, so that a bunch of guys that
get a hold of student I.D.'s can't go in and get a
bunch of tickets," Renfrew explained.
THE TIME and place for redeeming the re-

e Bowl
ceipts for the tickets in California has not been
set. In the past few years, Ohio State used the
Los Angeles Sports Arena for redemption. Ren-
frew believes that site will be used again, but the
final decision will be known after a meeting of
Rose Bowl and Michigan officials Friday.
AdveCtisements for the University's official
Rose Bowl tour began to appear almost as soon
as the final gun sounded in Columbus. The basic
package includes air transportation, hotel acc6m-
modations; and tickets to the parade and game.
Details of the tour and the various packages
and rates can be obtained at the ticket desk it
the Union Lobby, or by phoning 764-7550. Tickets
for the tour will be on sale in room 3209 of the
Union, until December 7.

The Consumer Product
Safety Commission (CPSC)
approved in principle yes-
terday a ban of fluorocar-
bon aerosols because they
'present an unreasonable
risk of injury to consumers
from the destruction of the
ozone layer."
It could be months-and
probably longer - before
that decision is implement-
ed, however.
FLUORCARBONS are used in
about half of the aerosol prod-
ucts on the market, including
virtually all hair sprays, deodo-
rants and many other household
items, totaling more than one
billion cans per year.
2 Though two other federal ag-
enis claim at least partial
purisdiction on the fluorocarbon
issue, the commission's surprise
action sets the machinery in
motion for an across-the-board
prohibition of the products.
The commission voted 5 to 0

in- ministration (FDA), with back-
n ing from the Justice Depart-

ment, claims to have jurisdic-
tion over cosmetic and personal
care aerosol items such as de-
odorants. However, it is be-
lieved to be heading toward a
ban of fhorocarbons itself, and
the consumer product commis-
sion said it expected close co-
operation with the FDA.
Any ban - partial or univer-
sal - will not be implemented
pending several procedural
steps, including coordination al-

so with the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA). Hence,
the commission's decision is not
likely to have an impact upon
the industry until mid-1977 or
The CPSC was expected by
both industry and environmen-
tal sources to leave the matter
entirely up to the FNA. In-
stead, the action yesterday
puts the commission out frsont

those who get out of line.

The infant was found wrapped in a blanket among rags and

Last night's public hearing on
the city's proposed 20-year park-
ing plan went pretty much the
way it was expected to go: the
overwhelming majority of Ann
Arborites who showed up were
fervently opposed to the $5.5
million scheme, chiefly because
of the methods being suggested
for funding it.
The parking plan was submit-

ted to City Council early this
month by a special committee
headed by Council member Ja-
fnie Kenworthy (D-Fourth
Ward). It calls for substantial
repairs to the city's two exist-
ing downtown carports, repairs
and purchase of a third; con-
struction of two additional
structures, and the establish-
ment of a permanent mainte-
nance fund.

Panel attacks- U.S.
Involvement in Iran
A thre.e-person panel last night accused the United States of
complete domination over Iran and likened America's involve-
ment in the large Middle Eastern nation to its role in Vietnam.
The speakers, George Depue, editor of the Michigan Free
Press, Cherick Fedayee and Ali Azad, both Iranian students study-
ing in Chicago, also described the growing resistance to Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlari's regime and accused the CIA of en

procedure would divide the es-
timated $5.5 fnillion cost figure
as follows: 40 per cent to be
raised by the city through in-
creased parking rates in exist-
ing carports, and 60 per cent to
be paid by residents of a pro-
posed Special Assessment Dis-
trict which encompasses-the
business areas west of State St.
as well as the commercial strip
-along South University.
The funding plan has raised
hackles among residents of the
two areas. Most of the people
who spoke at the hearing said
they didn't drive, didn't want to
drive, and couldn't see why they
should pay to provide parking
spaces for people who did.
"I HAVE NO CAR, and I-
have no use for one," said Hen-
rv Merry, a resident of Tower
Plaza on William St. "Now, a
snecial assessment is supposed
to be from those who benefit
frnn- sv-nathing. I don't see how
I benefit from a carport."
