Library, the Physics and Astronomy Building, and University Towers can all be seen from the ninth tee of the University golf

GYROS SANDWICH-A DELICIOUS CONTINENTAL
SPECIALTY Gyros is a lean bend of specially selected
portions of beef and Iamb. It is lightly seasoned and
cooked to sear the outside so that the iuice and flavor
are sealed inside. The meat is cooked to order on the
Autodoner, which gives it that "charcoal like" flavor.
Served with Raw Onions, Tomatoes on Greek Pita
Bread.
SHISH-KA-BOB SANDWICH Succulent, marinated
Greek "Ka-Bobs" broiled to perfection and nestled
between thick wedqes of our own special Greek Pita
Bread. Served with Onions and Tomatoes.
GYROS PLATE A fine meal in itself, served on a plate
with agenerous portion of meat, Row Onions and
Tomatoes.4
MOUSKA Sauteed egg plant and potatoes covered with
a generous layer of pure ground beef and our special
seasoning, then topped with special cream sauce.
PASTITSIO A hefty portion of pure ground beef and
tender macaroni, slowly baked with a delicate cream
sauce topping.
DOLMADES-"STUFFED GRAPE LEAVES" Made with
ground beef, mived with rice, wrapped in grape leaves
and topped with a special lemon sauce.
SPINACH PIE - Fresh Spinach mixed with Greek
cheese.
COMBINATION PLATE- Pastitsio, Mousaka, Dol-
modes. Spinach Pie, and Gyros.

naw Road, we- witness the plush
homes of the University's fa-
culty, many of Ann Arbor's cor-
porate executives.* Most students
never even become aware of the
existence of this area, so foreign
is its atmosphere from thit of
the volatile, humming cimpus.
Like old Ann Arbor, the roads
are soft and quiet here, but with
overtones of prestige, of subur-
ban tranquility. Much mare do
they resemble suburbs of Detroit
like Gross Pointe and Bloom-
field Hills than the buitging
numbered avenues of downtjwn
Ann Arbor.

PERHAPS one expects a stag-
nated student body, gone total-
ly sour on the radical principles
of a few years past. One will
not find it. Many remain deter-
mined in that path as some saw
in the Third World Coalition
Council sit-in at the Administra-
tion Building last year, or in the
work of the Young Spartacus
League.

ment. One will not find them.
