Doom and gloom
A University professor has predicted an increase
inflation, high unemployment, lower car sales than
expected in 1976 and the possible resignation of
Federal Reserve Chairman Arthur Burns by the
end of this year. Business School professor of fi-
nance Thomas Gies made his comments as the
opening speaker at a meeting of the University
Press Club Friday. He predicted that the inflation
rate will reach 15 or 16 per cent in 1976 as com-
pared to the present five per cent rate.

The Hustle
Dance teachers are delighted with thehreturn
of the Hustle. Now that people are touching in
rhythm and learning steps again, the teachers are
back in hot business. Phyllis Buda, who teaches
the Hustle, the foxtrot andgeven the waltz inBos-
ton, said her students' ages range from 20 to 30
where they used to be between 50 and 80. The rea-
sons for taking your partner for a twirl haven't
changed that much since a ton-hatted Fred Astaire
spun Ginger Rogers across a marble floor on
Broadway. "When the world is depressing, people
go back to dancing, said one teacher. "It's the
least expensive thin von can do," she added. You
can waltz at one ballroom near Boston for $2.75
a person. Or if you want you can send $300 for a
three month course and come ot a top dancer.
Hfo pants
A Kalamazoo man got rid of his pants and $1,000
on a city street yesterday. Jay Jolley told authori-
ties two men armed with handguns accosted him
and demanded his diamond ring, his watch, and
cash in his wallet. Then thieves said they liked the
stle of his pants and ordered him to take them
off.' Jollev was left on the street pantless and
nenriless ht unharmedl He drove to a nearby
nlire steion to renort tho crime.
Wheelchair hold-u p
Even his wheelchair apparently did not stop a
Philadelphia man from pulling off a six dollar rob-
bery yesterday. Melvin Taylor, the holdup victim,
told police he was walking in North Philadelphia
when he was approached by a man in a wheel-
chair being pushed by a youth. Taylor said the
man in the wheelchair pulled a gun from under
his cushion and forced him to hand over his money.
Police arrested Dexter Howard, 22, who is para-
!vzed from the hips down.
Mushroom high
Want to get high for free - and be legal besides?
Hundreds of people are scrutinizing cow manure
in western Oregon pastures for small, brown mush-
rooms that will provide just that kind of high. "If

von eat 30 or 40 of the mushrooms you start to
sae colors and all sorts of things like that," says
the former head of the Oregon Mycological Socie-
tv. Mannel Boves of the Oregon State Crime Labor-
atory said, "If oiic drink a hiehball and eat a few
of them, von can take a rretty good trip on the
combination." The mushrooms are a dung-growing
varietv. which is why peonle look for them in the
nrgtres The-r contain a hallucinogenic compounol
called psilocybin.

Leach's aerials
pace 28-0 rout
The Michigan Wolverines unveiled a
passing attack that no one knew they had
yesterday and left an astounded crew of
Purdue Boilermakers in their wake, 28-0.
Quarterback Rick Leach came out
throwing on the first series of downs -and
although he missed his first two attempts
he connected on six of his next seven tries
for over 200 yards and one touchdown.
THE BOILERMAKERS were as surprised at
the display as the 102,000 fans and were consid-
erably less enamored of it. "Michigan doesn't
have a reputation as a passing team," under-
stated Purdue coach Alex Agase, "but it seems
that every time we play them they start throw-
"I felt early in the game that we could stay
with them," he explained," but we didn't antici-
pate them hitting the big plays. It took the big
play to beat us."
Despite Michigan's aerial circus the Boiler-
b-kers refused to panic. But three tremendous
nlavs in the first quarter gave the Wolverines a
14-0 advantage.
COMING-BACK to a play which had almost
worked moments earlier, Leach hit Gordon Bell
on the wide side of the field with a short flare
pass. Starting from Michigan's 31 Bell sprinted
to his right, caught the ball' on a dead run at
the 40 and rambled down the sideline to the
T'rde 35 where he was sent flying out of
1ontrds by Prdue's Mark Travline.
Four plays brought Michigan to a third down
nd five situition at Purdue's 20 but then the

their second shutout of the season held a highly touted Purdue running attack to 173 yards. O'Neal led the Michigan team with 8 solo tackles and
assisted on six more, while Pickens was in on 8. Pruit, who lugged the pigskin 22 times for the Boilermakers, was held to a 3.3 yard average.

U' studies decision process

The University is in the process of adopting a
rogram to shore up long-range planning espe-
.ially in budget related areas, according to Assist-
ant Vice-President for Academic A f f a i r s Ned
Present procedures governing planning and pri-
)rities are inconsistent and random, and "where
they do exist, they are adequate but tend to be
very ad hoc in nature," he said.
A PRIORITIES questionnaire, the first step in
the project to be completed in December of 1978,
has already been distributed to deans of the Uni-
ersity's schools and colleges. Next week, units in
each school will begin drawing up responses to the

implementation of the program, pointed out that
its major goal is to enable administrators "to make
better informed decision with a longer-term per-
According to LeLong, the project, which origi-
nated last fall when Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Frank Rhodes asked the Program Evalua-
tion Committee to begin drafting materials, has
become "even more important" in the light of the
regularity and severity of budget cuts in the past
JUST LAST month, 1.5 per cent of the Univer-
sity's state appropriations were pared off an al-
ready lean budget, necessitating a hiring freeze
on all faculty positions. This cut was a sequel to
a previous 1.5 per cent slash in August where pro-
grams and services campus-wide felt the reper-
LeLong grimly acknowledged that the present
situation will continue saying,' "We re in for at
least several more lean years."~
LeLong stressed that the workability of the pro-
ject rests in the assumption of "no increase in
resources" for responders to the questionnaire.
"IT'S EASY to develop some grandiose, blue sky
plans" where budget limitations are not recog-
nized, but "it's not realistic," he said.
LeLong said that the assumption of litpited fund-
ing was the most important difference between
this project and similar projects inrthe past and
at other universities.
Results of these other projects "never really
lead into planning. . . . But this (Rhodes' project)
links all the elements together. It's much more
realistic," said LeLong.
According to the questionnaire, the project is
divided into three phases:
-in Phase I unit objectives are determined;
-in Phase II current operations are evaluated
in the light of objectives stated;
-in Phase III directions and alternative courses
of action based on the results of Phase I and II
will be delineated.

For the past two days they have been
sitting around the Ann Arbor Inn talk-
ing about weird monsters, exotic wom-
en, spaceships and the Shadow.
But, then, that's how science fiction
fanatics are.
THESE EXPERTS in the trivia of the
outlandish have gathered here for a
three-day convention that winds up
Titled "Classicon" and described by
s ornsors Ray Walsh and Mike Parsons
as "a pulp-science fiction-detective
convention," it is a marketplace for
thousands of books and magazines and
has attracted some of the greatest
authorities on science fiction, they say.
For instance, Sam Moskowitz of New-

science fiction histories and anthologies,
and bills himself as the world's leading
expert on science fiction.
"I HAVE one of the largest science
fiction collections in the world, includ-
ing every science fiction magazine ever
published," Moskowitz claimed.
"Until recent times, science fiction
wasn't considered respectable, so li-
braries didn't collect it," he added.
Moskowitz said that his collection con-
sists of 40,000 science fiction maga-
zines, 12,000 fan magazines, 15,000 hard
cover books and 5,000 soft cover books-
valued at an estimated $125,000.
"I SPEND $6,000 a year just to keep
up," he said.
The convention is highlighted by an
art exhibition and periodic auctions.

MANCHESTER, Mich.-Former Governor John Swainson,
whose perjury conviction forced him to resign from the state
Supreme Court, said yesterday he is certain, his innocence will
eventually be established. "I am absolutely confident I will be
vindicated," he said, "because I am innocent."
Swainson also stated yesterday that he decided on his own

1955 law that ended a 20-year public service career, Su
said to overturn the law would have required state St
Court action.
"I am not prepared to have my colleagues consid
