Perhaps freshpeople expect,
in this liberal college and com-
munity, to find an absence of
racial tension. Here Lney will
be disappointed. They'll soon
notice enough the segregated
tables in every dorm dining
room. You won't hear anybody
mention race in nAn Arbor how-
ever long you listen -- people
fear the subject and hope by
ignoring it it will disappear. It
Perhaps the freshperson ex-
pects to be lonely, to find t h a t
he or she has nothing in common
with anyone here. A, pleasant
surprise awaits you .hen, for
in this great strapping school
of so many and, so many types,
your type will be here too. And
more important, there is some
tolerance and friendship be-
tween the types. Maybe n3t
enough, but some.
SO DON'T let that freshperson
count on anything here, f r his

or her view of the place will
change time and again before
they leave. Perhaps the o n 1 y
constant here is that constant
of change.

too. However frustrated the
dwellers get with City Council,
with the University administra-
tion, with themselves, they
maintain a fierce pride in this
city, home of the nation s most
liberal dope law, of one of ;he
nation's great colleges, . of a
black mayor, of many bfilliant
people who helve made brilliant
contributions, of a conservative
throng of Republicans and t h e
charging Human Righrs Party,
of much that is good and much
that is bad and more that is
somewhere in-between.
I remembed something Carl
Cohen, professor of philosophy
and member of the Re,3dential
College faculty, told us at orien-
tation last summer. He said,
"You know, some people come
here and they develop a sort of
Ann Arbor-itis. They, come and
they just never want t' leave."
Maybe you won't either.

he'd play at Crisler Arena to hundreds of thousands at eight dollars a head.

cent admissions tax on dance,
opera, c h o r u s, theater andr
music performances and read-
ings, painting, sculpture ar.d
craft exhibitions has been re-
pealed in Washington.
According to some estimates,
the amount of money involved
per year is $350,000. Accrding
to Jack Golodner of Advocatesr
for the Arts, many Washingtonr
groups had planned admissions
increases for the coming year
which may not nrw be neces-
sary since the organization can
keep the 5 per cent.
Pittsburgh and Spokane still
impose a city tax. Milwaukee,
Miami,, Cincinnati and Houston
impose a state admissions tax
and Atlanta and Minneapolis,
levy both.

lobbied for the repeal, is a pro-
gram of the Associated Coun-
cils of the Arts, the national

and community arts councils.

Public Relations woman Fran

Btt however badly Briarwood
may want the community to re-
late to it as a hub of community
activity, the mall structure as it
stands can never fulfill that role.
Containing too much of every-
thing for everybody, isolated
from residential, entertainment
(except its own movies) and
work areas, bordered by an in-
terstate highway and surround-
ed by parking lots, Briarwold
can only' succeed in drawing
crowds of people - butno com-
munity - to it.
But, although local opposition
got the project off to an ad-
mittedly slow start Briarwood
does seem to be gamning ground
in Ann Arbor.
One employe ho saes in-
creasing numbers of people
flocking to the center explains:
"Main street is kihi of going

During the next eight months, some two or
three thousand dollars will far too quickly pass
through your hands on its way to University,
landlord, or bookstore coffers.
But here's no sense crying all the way to the
bank about it, because, strange as it may seem,
the bank and banking plan that you select to
guard your hard-earned cash between stops may
make the task of parting with it just a little
bit easier.
IN FACT, you can and should expect your
bank to do more for you than officiously order
you to sign on the dotted line and join the queue
forming at the window on your left. After all,
banks are private concerns that - like any
other commercial enterprises - engage in stiff
competition for the tidy profits that big money
managers can rake in.
But before you start shopping around for
financial services, it's important that you de-
cide roughly what your banking needs will be.
Although you shouldn't have to pay for 'pr"i-
leges you never intend to use, you may never-
theless find it worthwhile to take advantage of
some of the specialized (if more ?expensive)
programs sponsored by area banks.
Most students find that a checking account at
either an Ann Arbor or Detroit-area bank is a
virtual necessity, if just to keep track of where
to and how fast the nest egg is diminishing.
(Out-of-state accounts are about as welcome
around town as three dollar bills.)
EACH of the city's four commercial banks
offers a somewhat different checking plan. If

you can maintain 'a $150 minimum balance, for
example, Huron Valley National Bank pro-'
vides a no-service-charge, "free" checking plan.
But if you dip below the magic $150 figure, you
pay through the nose - 80 cents in statement
charge per month and seven cents for, each
The other three city' institutions,- Ann Arbor
Bank and Trust, National Bank and Trust, and
Ann Arbor Trust - offer variations on the
standard "specia" checking service: 25 cents
for each monthy statement, plus 10 cents for
each check.
Banks aso assess an additional fee for im-
printing your name on checks, although some
give new account holders a checkbook and
starter box of checks free. If you're on a tight
budget, be wary of the pretty catlogs that en-
tice you -to buy patterned checks bearing pic-
tures of everything from the Grand Canyon to
Richard Nixon. They're usually double the price
of the good old-fashioned colored safety paper
ANN ARBOR Bank and Trust and Huron Val-
ley allow checking account customers to use
their "money machines" - compter-operated
cash dispensers that permit holders of spe-
cially coded magnetic identification cards to
make deposits to or withdrawals from accounts
24 hours-a-day.
Students who plan on keeping large quanti-
ties of cash on deposit, however, will probably
find it wisest to open a separate savings ac-
count, either at one of the four banks or at one
of the city's two savings and loan associations
(which usually pay significantly higher interest
