Gee, thanks Ma
It seems Ma "Barker" Bell, notorious gangster
of the corporate state, will go to great lengths to
get traditionally stingy students to make long dis-
tance phone calls. In her latest promo endeavor,
good ol' Ma has sent all the quaddie kiddies and
other dorm dwellers little "study break" packets
which include such nifty knick-knacks as a plastic
fold-up pencil holder a la early American shlock, a
handy-dandy book mark shaped like a telephone
receiver, and a "study break rate chart" com-
pleta with long-distance rate listings. Last but
hardly least, Ma has provided pre-written, fill-in-
the-blank postcards so students can "write" the

FBI agents arrested a 21-year-old man yesterday and
issued warrants for two others in connection with the
kidnapping late Monday evening of a General Motors
executive and his family at their Ann Arbor Township
William Schulenberg was held in his home for 13
hours Tuesday morning while his wife and three sons
were abducted and forced into the trunk of their com-
pany-owned Cadillac. A colleague of Schulenberg's
paid the kidnappers $54,000 in ransom out of Schulen-
berg's bank account.
DANIEL WIRTH, 21, of Beaumont Avenue was arrest-
ed by authorities yesterday morning "on the edge of
the city," according to Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter
FBI sources said yesterday that John Szenynwelzki,
18, and Kenneth Royce; 18, both of Ann Arbor, are also
sought and charged as fugitives.
Wirth is charged with violating federal kidnapping
and extortion laws and will appear today before a

If the Wolverine football team maintains its tying
streak, it will not be eligible for the celebrated
Rose Bowl or the other noted post-season gridiron
clashes. But recent campus speculation has it that
the Mighty Men from Michigan will be invited to
attend the newly created Tie Bowl. The event will
take place in Corbata, Thailand where the Wol-
verines will tangle with a yet undetermined team.
Bo "Straight-laced" Schembechler was unavail-
able for comment but was reportedly tongue-tied
at the news. One player, however, reportedly com-
mented, "I'm not going to tie up much time wor-
rying about this thing. I'm sure we'll string 'em
up." The sources also disclosed that Athletic Di-
rector Don Canham is allegedly ordering new uni-
forms for the match - tie dyed, of course.

Lap dog
A pedigree German shepherd named Michael
lapped up three pints of beer in a Glasgow, Scot-
land tavern, then jumped on the bar and frighten-
ed customers and staff members. Next stop for the
rambunctious mongrel and his owner was a local
court where Michael's "daddy," 50-year-old Gil-
bert Toner pleaded that the dog wasn't drunk -
just angry because he had been served a short
measure of scotch. Toner said the dog could not
possibly have started the row from intoxication
since Michael's normal night's slosh was in the
upwards of 11 pints. Toner was fined $45 for re-
fusiog to leave the pub, assault, and causing a
breach of peace.
Tarred and feathered
The Mecklenburg County Boy Scout Council in
Charlotte N.C. is having its feathers ruffled by the
federal government. Officials are ordering that the
scouts change the plumage of their Sioux Indian
costumes which they have used in ceremonials, ap-
parently violating a federal law against posses-
sing the feathers of certain endangered birds. The
costumes and headdresses, which include hawk
and owl feathers, will be turned over to the Char-
lotte Nature Museum by the end of the year to
comply with a directive issued by the Interior De-
partment's Fish and Wildlife Service. The cos-
tumes containing the forbidden feathers were the
creations of three Explorer Scouts.

while Schulenberg, under gunpoint, phoned other GM
officials to arrange for the ransom payment and re-

FBI sources say they have recovered a portion of
the $54,000 ransom which was paid early Tuesday
morning. Estimates as to the amount of the recovered
ransom conflicted.

School board readies

The city school board met last night to drum up support for
a millage increase request and explain their campaign strategy to
a public which has not approved such a tax hike in over six years.
The board claimed the school district needs the 2 mill property
tax raise, which would be levied for three years, to offset reve-
nue losses created by state changes in tax collection.
BOARD President Paul Weinhold told an informal gathering
of some 50 parents, teachers and school administrators that the

LSA students may review transcripts

A provision in the recently approved recom-
mendations of the Graduation Requirements
Commission (GRC) will allow students more of
a hand in painting the picture of their aca-
demic careers in the Literary College (LSA).
Students may now requests that their tran-
scripts be altered to list only grades but no
courses, or courses but no grades, or to have
all grades translated into pass/fail notation.
GRADE POINT averages will be deleted
from non-graded transcripts, and the option a
student has taken will be clearly indicated on
the document.

schools and employers.
"STUDENTS should have the right to make
that decision." Grew added.
This new policy, along with the new plus-
minus grading scale, gives new meaning to
the transcript as an interpretation of student
academic performance.
According to the GRC newsletter, LSA stu-
dents can expect changes in other areas as

focus of student complaints, have been loos-
ened to allow students to develop their own
