Keep a lid on Liddy

By J. MAURICE RUSSELL
VWOULD LIKE to compliment Marnie
Heyn for her commentary "The Six-
ties Radicals: What are they up to
these Days?" Marnie is right-some
things, such as civil rights and paci-
fism, still remain sacred to people who
retain the consciousness of the Sixties.
Since I am 21 years old, I was only,
a rebel teeny-,opper during the late
Sixties. I truly wish that I were a few
years older so that I could have taken
an active role in that era. It was a
time when people's interests went be-
yond expensive clothes, fast cars, mak-
ing a million, or repetitious talentless
dance music.
Toward the end of last summer, I

was talking with a woman who I work
with, a woman in her upper twenties.
She said that she would like to "see a
world where people live together with
peace and love." Her words sounded
cliche, and I let them drift away as
the conversation went elsewhere. Later
I realized that, yes, her words may
have been cliche, but they are words
that bluntly state an entire frame of
mind that must not be forgotten, and
Marnie Heyn, I reassure you, that the
60's consciousness is not forgotten.
YOU MAY NOT see thousands of rad-
icals converging at political conven-
tions. You may not see peace signs
spray-painted on walls. You may not

see students wearing armbands, or
gathering in astounding numbers for
demonstrations, or sharing fun and
music on sunny Sundays. A new breed
is here now, but a great many of those
who remember the 60's didn't run
away. We're still here.
The Leftist cult of the 60's is still a
Leftist cult in the 70's. Today's students
lack the spirit of youth. In my creative
writing class at the U, students scoff
at rebel poems, preferring to giggle at
silly stories about dropping pizzas. So
the Leftist cult sits' back and exists
separately, but God help us, not equal-
ly, among the rest of American society.
We still listen to Jeff Airplane, the
Dead, and Joan Baez. We recognize

the names William Kunstler and- Rennie
Davis. We remember LSD 'in sugar
cubes. We remember the "hawks" and
the "doves." We wait for Jimmy Carter
to deliver his pardon.
t is true that many radicals melted
into suburbia. Let them. They are the
cowards. But Marnie Heyn, a mono-
gamous marriage and going to grad
schol does not mean that one has given
up. As long as the spirit is still there;
it acan lie dormant while people pursue
-other endeavors. As long as the spirit
can be revived there is >still hope.
Peace ands love must never become
cliche.

. GORDON LIDDY, ex-Watergate
hatchet man who has served al-
most a fifth of his well deserved 20-
year sentence for taking part in that
squalid affair, plans on asking Presi-
dent-elect Jimmy Carter for a par-
don as soon as he assumes offices.
We hope Mr. Carter flatly rejects
Liddy's plea. It's bad enough that
ringleader Nixon is on the loose ply-
ing his trade. We do, however, in con-
trast, fully back Carter's pardon of
evaders of that corporate war known
as Viet Nam.
G. Gordon Liddy must be kept in
jail to impress upon other disrelut-
able persons in our high-up govern-
ment that they can't just play poli-
tics like a game of monopoly and get
away with it. The Watergate crimes
are among the worst political offenses
one could commit. No less should a
mass - murderer be set free than
should the somewhat psychopathic
Liddy.

JUST BECAUSE NIXON was let off
the hook, though, Liddy seems to
think he can coast out on his coat-
tails. Fortunately, Jimmy Carter
doesn't seem lacking in the sense
and decency that ought to lead him
to keep Liddy locked, up.
Mr. Liddy ought to be stuck in
Attica for a spell to get a taste of
the kind of conditions lots of war
resisters and other 60s radicals were
subjected to by the likes of him.
That's really prison, quite unlike the
relative country-club atmosphere of
Liddy's present place of residence.
And while we're beseeching Mr.
Carter to give thumbs down to Liddy,
let's not forget the ones that effec-
tively got away besides Nixon: Vesco,
Rebozo and, all the other sunshine
boys of high-finance; Mitchell, Hunt,
Magruder, Colson, Segretti and so on
and so forth.
Bless 'em all.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT:

A path renders

QTUDENT GOVERNMENT at
the University has been in-
efficient and ineffective. Apathy
is the predominant cause of this.
If elected to MSA, I would do as
much as possible to restore hon-
esty and quality to MSA. I en-
vision a student government we
can be proud of.
There are several problems I
would resolve if elected. One of
these is the ridiculous lines one

letic events. I believe something
ought to be done to reduce the
amount of time needed to stand
in these lines. Distribution . of
LSA CRISP tickets is another
problem in need of solution. I
would insist on the formation of
a committee to analyze the pro-
blem and pose viable alterna-
tives.
The current MSA Constitution
has caused one of the greatest
malapportionment of votes in

ment. Over 20,000 students are
disenfranchised. I support a
new Constitution to restore
equality of our votes.
CURRENTLY, students have
been subjected to increased
regulation by the University. I

Question: In your most recent Health
Service column, you wrote of the harm
of dental plaque and the techniques of
good dental care. I found the article very
informative. However, there is one thing
you did not clarify. When should a per-
son use dental floss? Before or after
brushing his teeth? Also, how often do
you recommend? As often as brushing?
If you could answer these questions in
your next column, I would be much
obliged. Thank you.
Answer: If you are a busy person (and
who isn't in this town?), it is preferable
to do one thorough job of flossing once
a day than several superficial attempts.
The best time, according to some dental
school people, is at bedtime before thor-
oughly brushing your teeth. This appears

to be a good time because you will be
removing all the plaque deposited during
the day and you will probably not be
eating again until morning. Thus, there
will be very little debris for bacteria to
feast upon during the night. A good
thorough brushing should take a mini-
mum of five minutes and likewise for
flossing. Thus, ten minutes a day attend-
ing to dental hygiene is essential and you
should become compulsive about it. In
order to avoid' boredom you might try
this routine while watching TV, listening
to a record, etc. It makes the time seem
to pass very quickly. The technique for
flossing is essentially this:
Pass the dental floss gently between
the teeth and holding it tightly around
the edge of each tooth, bring it up and
down several times from below the gum
edge to the contact point at the upper

side of the teeth. Try not to snap the
floss through the contact point-just
think of it as a polishing job. It should
feel "squeaky clean" if done correctly.
Question: My boy friend has been com-
plaining that the odor of my vagina turns
him off so much that he has a hard time
when we make love. Please don't recom-
mend that I bathe because I do. Are
there any douches or sprays that you
can recommend?
Answer: While it is true that odors,
in general, have the optential to both
attract and repel, the aroma of the nor-
mal, healthy vagina" should not be offen-
sive to either you or your partner. Nor-
mal vaginal secretions have a self-cleans-
ing effect.' Disagreeable vaginal odors
may, however, be associated with vagi-
nal infection, and we recommend that
you 'make an appointment with our Gyne-

cology Clinic so that any possible infec-
tion may be identified and treated.
The use of douches, deodorant sprays,
and any other of the wide variety of
cosmetic vaginal preparations on the
market will only serve to 'dover up any
existing problem you may have, rather
than facilitate the search for its Cause.
In addition, some women have developed
sensitivities toward the chemicals in
these products.
The aroma of the healthy body during
sexual arousal should be very sexy. It
is unfortunate that such a superb adver-
tising job has been done to convince
women not using these perfumed vaginal
preparations that they run the risk of
becoming social and sexual outcasts.
