The all-male domination of the public address
system at Michigan Stadium during football games
will be broken this Saturday at the Northwestern
tilt. Judy Manos will break with tradition by nar-
rating a salute to International Women's Year at
the end of the band's pre-game show. Now that the
band includes women, so will the announcers booth
-that leaves just one group connected with the
football games which is still all male. Is it time to
turn Bo's boys into Bo's kids?
James P. Hoffa, son of the missing Teamsters
kingpin, met in Chicago with a man alleged to have
powerful ties to the rich Teamsters' pension fund
shortly after his father's disappearance, the Detroit
News said yesterday ing a copyright story. The
meeting took place on August 9-less than two
weeks after the senior Hoffa disappeared. But the
fes don't know what, if any, significance the
meeting had. Hoffa's son refused to discuss the
matter. Earlier, he refused to take a lie detector
test concerning his father's disappearance.

How much is that doggie?
President Ford will sell three of his dog Liberty's
puppies to pay for the breeding costs, White House
sources reported yesterday. Jerry's year-and-a-half
old golden retriever gave birth' last month to five
males and four females. Arrangements have al-

In the red
A major ketchup manufacturer says rising sales
of its product means the recession is over. The
National Livestock and Meat Board in Chicago says
the industry reportedly uses the 14-ounce bottle of
America's favorite condiment as an economic baro-
meter. The board said ketchup sales to restaurants
have soared, as customers for burgers, hot dogs
and other restaurant meats increased. Growth is
also attributed to more families reaching higher
income brackets-allowing them to eat out more
often, according to the meat people.
Medina, Tennessee, a town of 850, is holding an
election. But nobody wants to run. The filing dead-
line was last week, and nobody signets up to run
for mayor or city recorder. And two of the four
council seats drew no contenders. "They can re-
elect me on writ-in votes but there's no law that
says I have to serve," said current Mayor Mark
Williford. "I'm just plain worn out and tired of
fooling with all the headahes." He earns $1,200
for his duties. May be there's some furtile ground
to be "plowed for frustrated SGC members in little
The Roman Catholic Church's stance on birth
control, divorce and the authority of the Pope are
the main reasons why fewer Catholics are going
to church, according to a national church-sponsored
study. The survey shows that almost half the
decline in Mass attendance can be acounted for
by the changing attitude toward birth control.
Nationally attendance has dropped by a third over
the past decade. In the state, however, no drop-
has been noted, according to the study.
