One of the few Ann Arbor Area Restaurants to
successfully combine excellent food with moderate
prices, the. Whiffletree (located on Huron just west
of Main) is a haven for seafood fanatics. The menu
features "The Catch of the Day," a fish dish which
varies with the daily shipment of seafood flown in
from Boston: but also offers a large selection of
other main dishes, including sandwiches, salads,
and steaks.
In talking about the Whiffletree, the food and
drink are the main topics. Steamed Maine Lobster,
picked out of the live tank in the center of the
restaurant when you order and served with a
tossed salad, corn on the cob, and bread and butter,
is enough to make anyone's mouth water at only
$6.95. Like all seafood served in the Whiffletree, the.
lobster comes by air daily from the East Coast. For
those with less exclusive taste, but a love for sea-
food, the huge bucket of clams, either steamers or
mussels, is a filling and enjoyable meal for $3.60.

If you're not in the mood for seafood, the menu
offers a superb charbroiled souvlaki shishkebab,
served with onions and tomatoes on Syrian bread
which is only $2.50 for a more-than-filling double
The Whiffletree's reputation doesn't just lie in
the main course, however, as is evidenced in what
is offered to round out that perfect meal. From the
bar comes a wide selection of drinks, with a sug-
gestion to try the Irish Coffee-a blend of aromatic
coffee and Irish Whiskey. And to end a delightful
dinner one is almost obligated by its reputation to
enjoy a piece of the Whiffletree's New York Cheese
Cake, which comes both plain and with assorted fruit
The rough hewn furnishings expressed in heavy,
darkwood tables and dim lighting adds to the re-
laxed atmosphere that makes the Whiffletree a
great place to go for lunch, dinner, or a midnight
bite after a show.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washing-

Aud., 7 & 9) - A young, ideal-
istic senator (James Stewart)
battle for his beliefs in the face
of an overwhelming personal
villification c a m p a i g n
within the Senate and in his
home state. 1939 Frank Capra
film drenched in the corny
style only Frank Capra could
pull off, and it holds up remark-!
ably well in this age of cynic-
ism. Some of the political as-:
pects may seem a little naive
today, but the viewer will in-
variably find himself rooting
unashamedly for Stewart as he
conducts a wrenching one-man
senate fillibuster with seeming-
ly the whole world against him.

almost no connection to its pre-
decessors whatsoever. Indeed,
Russell freely admits this, stat-
ing his prime intent was not to
stick to a straight narrative but
to "heighten" the audience's
senses through an assault of vis-
ual-audial images. It is cer-
tainly an assault, but that of a
blind man flailing away at an
unknown target, numbing his
audience with every blow he
accidentally lands. Prserve

de Havilland gives one of the
masterful performances of film
history as a plain, unloved rich
girl at the turn of the century,
who suddenly finds herself
courted by a handsome young
man. Is he merely a fortune
hunter, or is his love genuine?
On that question the film turns,
and it proves a good deal more
