The bionic corpse
Filming for "The Six Million Dollar Man"
Wednesday turned out more like "The Twilight
Zone" when what was thought to be a wax dummy
hanging from a noose was discovered to be a
mummified corpse. The body was found in a
Long Beach, Calif. amusement park's fun house
and was painted with a reddish fluorescent paint
to make it glow in the dark. A technician was
moving the corpse to prepare the scene for film-
ing when an arm came off. "The guy was going
to glue it back on," said a police investigator, "but
then he noticed a bone, sticking out." The mummy
has been sent to a-coroner to determine how old
it is and where it came from. Before being hung
from the makeshift gallows, the pseudo-mummy
had been displayed in a casket at a now-defunct
wax museum as the "thousand-year-old man."
Grasshopper spit, milkweed juice, or the burial
of a dead cat at midnight, are just as effective
for curing warts as any standard medication, ac-
cording to a Cleveland dermatologist. Whatever
the treatment, said Dr. Jerome Litt of .the Case
Western Reserve school of medicine, faith is the
crucial ingredient. Litt 1claims to have achieved
"spectacular results" treating warts with an
ordinary sticky tape on which he puts an impres-
sive looking label. Nobody is sure how this works,
but-patients who wore the tape had their warts
drop off. It has been suggested that the methods
stimulate the secretion of body chemicals which
fight the virus that causes the horny growths. So,
next time you get a wart, don't mess with any
doctors, just rub it with an onion soaked. in
Biologists are trying to figure out why millions
of squid have squirmed onto the sandy beaches
of Cape Cod since mid-October, snuffing them-
selves in the freezing air. "Some days there are
so many of them on the beach that its impossible
to walk without stepping on them," said Robert
Prescott of the Cape Cod Museum .of . atural His-
tory. In Cambridge, Mass., the ponderously titled
Center for Short-Lived Phenomena theorizes that
the mass suicides may be attributed to the de-
pletion of schools of fish by foreign fishing fleets.
Other theories tie it, to unusually cold weather
or to unfathomed cycles of nature, like those
governing the migrations of birds.

Worried about finding a job after graduation?
Take peart - the competition could be stiffer.
One in seven high school seniors who took a liter-
acy test in Philadelphia couldn't even fill out a
job application. Supt. Michael Marcase said this
week he can't understand how some of Philly's
seniors ever reached the 12th grade, adding that
those who fail the functional literacy test don't
really deserve a diploma. Among the other find-
ings: 8.3 per cent could not define words such
as "credit" and "beware"; 7.2 per cent couldn't
read a newspaper; and 1.4 per cent could not fol-

If President Ford accepts the University's
invitation to become a visiting professor he's
probably going to have a larger than normal
share of override requests.
Most students reacted favorably yesterday to
the professorship offer saying that Ford, with
his extensive political background, would be
able to offer them insights into government
workings which they haven't got from other
professors or text books.
"AFTER LIVING THROUGH (the presiden-
cy)," said sophomore Eileen Burgin, "he's a
lot more qualified to talk about it than some-
one who's not experienced."
Everything that he's gone through as Presi-
dent would be worth hearing," said senior Mark
Gaertner. "I've taken classes on what tht Presi-
Teaching abilities in question
dent does, and what the text book says and
what the President says may be different."'
The day after the presidential election the
executive committee of the political science de-
partment voted unanimously to invite Ford to
join the faculty. Ford is not expected to reply
to the University's offer until after Jimmy Car-
ter's Jan. 20 inaguration.
The question of Ford's qualifications for a
professorship is pre-eminent in some minds. Sen-
ior Mary Feiber, who described her feelings'
about the invitation as "mixed," said the Presi-
dent's appointment "would be prestigious for
the University ... but it's the lack of scholastic
experience which disturbs me.
"BUT IF HE'D BE TEACHING a class like
legislative process, he's goc the practical experi-
ence which counts for something," she added.
"He must know the ropes and the practical ap-
plications, but it's his lack of experience that
doesn't sit right with me."
Despite Ford's lack of teaching experience,
Political Science teaching fellow John Strate
thinks that the addition of Ford to his, depart-
ment would be "great."
"He's not oriented toward political theory,"
Strate noted, "but he spent 20 or so years on
Capital Hill so he must know something. He's
an intelligent individual and I think he'd have
a lot to offer."
Political Science Prof. Frank Grace said he
had reservations about the "mechanics" of a
Ford appointment to the staff.

The students who ignited the
recent sex discrimination dis-
pute over the all-male senior
society Michigamua yesterday
scorned a tentative University-
Michigamua proposal which
seeks to lay the controversy to
Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) vice-president Amy
Blumenthal and former MSA
member Anita Tanay said that
even- if Michigamua and the
University follow through on
the plan, the group will still
violate Title IX, the federal~"
regulation which bars sex dis-
crimination by University bod-
"THE UNIVERSITY' is not
taking a stand on this at all,"

they're saying, dTitle IX is

Blumenthal and Tanav filed
a comnlaint with the Dept. of
Health. Education, and Wel-
fare (HEW) in September,
charging that the University
was breaking federal law by
giving free space in the Michi-
aan Union and free use of Ra-
dri-k Farms to "the Tribe".
HEW then directed the Uni-
versity to investigate the
groun. Last week, University
officials nresented Michigam-

LANSING (UPI) - Gov. William Milliken is expect-

MICHIGAN RUNNING BACK Rob Lytle and coach Bo Schembeckler were all smiles yester-

three founders, Cornell graduates, thought
Cornell star Ed Marinaro should have won the
Heisman Trophy, given' by the New York
Athletic Club to the best college football player,
instead of Pat Sullivan.
"We were joking around that it being Christ-
mas time and there being three of us, that
we should give Marinaro the 'Wiseman'
trophy," said Bob Freeman, one of the found-
ers. "The next day our publicity director told
us he rented three camels, so we decided to

In addition to banning sale
gas as a propellant by 1979,
,the bill requires labeling of
such cans as of January, 1978.
According to Bullard, the ban
will mostly affect sales of hair
sprays, and spray deodorants.
OREGON HAS banned freon
sprays as of next March and
New York has a ban which will
take effect in January, 1978,
Bullard said. In addition, three
federal agencies are consider-

Bullard had to swallow sev-
eral modifications in his freon
bill over the course of its two
year legislative history.
One of them dropped a ban
on manufacture. of freon spray
cans, allowing Michigan firms
to continue producing the
products for export to other
states. It was estimated that
without this provision, the bill
could result in a loss of 2'Q0 or
more jobs here.

When Louisville Courier-Journal editor Carol Sutton joined the
paper in 1955, "It was not a time when you had very many women
coming out of journalism schobls who seriously intended to pursue
journalism. It was a down, quiet, calm period." -
Sutton spoke yesterday at Rackham Assembly Hall as part of
the Journalism Department's series on "ethics in journalism."
