Volunteers needed
Student volunteers are needed to aid the U's
Disabled Students Services in compiling a study on
the accessibility of campus buildings for persons
using wheelchairs. The volunteers will evaluate
building entrances, doorways and elevators to pro-
duce a national directory for these students. This
directory will enable students to compare colleges
and universities in terms of accessibility. Volun-
teers will be helping DSS meet a January 1 dead-
line for a Higher Education Accessibility Project
mandated by the U.S. Bureau of Education for the
Handicapped. Interested students should contact
DSS, 4119 Michigan Union or 763-3000 for further
information from 9-5, Monday through Wednesday.

Bare essentials of anthro
Prof. Sally Slocum's intro anthropology courses
at the University of Montana bares all. It's none
of those dull skulls or carbon dating for her stu-
dents. Slocum centers her attention around the
navel-teaching wide-eyed students the intricacies
of the stripping trade. Her field work is extensive
since she claims to have worked her way through
the University of California at Berkeley as one of
the take-it-all-off crowd (kind of makes you won-
der how Professor Goldschmidt got through school,
doesn't it?). She attended the annual meeting of
the American Anthropology Association in San
Francisco to present a paper entitled "Strippers
and Their Customers: Interaction at the Bar,"
where she presented, among other things, a scath-
ing criticism of patrons of her former trade. "Most
strippers, Slocum said, "feel any man who wants
to watch a strip show for whatever reason must
have something wrong with him ... he is a stupid
sucker who is dumb enough to pay too much
money for bid drinks to see a show that a real
man would stay away from." Take that, Wilbur
Mills.
More bare essentials
Sally Slocum may think stripping is worthy of
academic attention, but the New York State Liquor
Authority (SLA) has had it with "rampant nudity."
So it outlawed topless waitresses and totally nude
dancers in establishments serving alcoholic bev-
erages. The new ruling came as a response to
blatant advertising practices on the part of 40 or

50 bars in the New York metropolitan area. The
law also stipulates that topless dancers swing a
respectable six feet from the crowd.

The Ann Arbor Tenants Union (AATA) yes-
terday charged Trony Associates' owner with
harassing tenants who are withholding Decem-
ber's rent in support of a strike against the
management company.
Trony's new owner, Dewey Black, who has
renamed the company Sunshine Management,
said he has done nothing to violate the terms
of his tenants' leases.
ALMOST HALF OF SUNRISE'S 120 units
have paid their December rents into an AATU
escrow fund, expected to total $10,000 for the
month.
The AATU-organized strike against Sunrise
was announced two weeks ago in protest of what
some tenants call inadequate maintenance and
security.
Seven striking tenants and AATU members
yesterday picketed Sunshine's headquarters on

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (A)
-A proposed resolution blasting

warning of stronger action if the

the Security Council yesterday.
U.S. Ambassador D a n i e l
Moynihan called it one-sided and
said the United States would
support only a measure that con-
demns "all acts of violence in
the Middle, East."
AT THE same time, the less
influential General Assembly
voted 84-17 with 27 abstentions
to ask all countries to desist
from military or economic aid
to Israel as long as it "con-
tinues to occupy Arab territories

Packard.
BLACK LAST WEEK sent notices to quit to
most of the striking tenants, according to the
AATU.
However, the AATU said a court order is
needed to evict a tenant and if the rent is
then paid the tenant cannot be evicted.
Black last night refused to talk with a Daily
reporter until a typed question and answer sheet,
signed by both he and the reporter, were sub-
mitted.
DESPITE THE NOTICES, Black said, "I don't
intend to evict anyone because I expect my
rents will be paid."
The University director of off-campus hous-
ing, Peter Schoch, termed the AATU-Sunrise
affair a "mess."
Meanwhile, two Sunshine tenants on Oakland,
who had not informed Black of their intentions
to strike, received a notice to quit on December

2, one day after their rent was due, according
to AATU organizer Peter Bergold.
BERGOID SAID THE TERMS of the stand-
ard University lease used by Sunrise include
a five-day grace period during which tenants
can pay their rent before a late fee is as-
sessed.
Bergold termed the notice to quit sent to
the Oakland tenants an "act of harassment,"
because "they never informed Sunshine they
were supporting the strike."
Although Schoch said that practice "violates
the spirit of the lease," he said it is not "neces-
sarily illegal." "Trony's action was hasty," he
added.
SCHOCH SAID HIS OFFICE is prepared to
be "helpful" if needed. He finds both sides at
fault.
"I do fault Black considerably for some of
his past practices," commented Schoch. He re-
burie d

fused to divulge the specifics of Black's alleged
actions.
Larry Cooperman, an AATU organizer claim-
ed yesterday, "Black refused to speak to us
(AATU) as an agent of the tenants." He said
Sunrise's owner is not acting in good faith.
AATU ORGANIZER JODI WOLENS said the
Stewards Council, composed of representatives
from every Sunrise building, agreed Thursday
night not to talk to Black until he recognizes
the tenant's union as a bargaining team.
Black said that any conversations with the
tenants union are "unofficial" and added, "It
appears to me any problems that may arise
under the lease shall be submitted to the Uni-
versity Mediation Service for an attempt at a
resolution of any problems as per the accords
of the lease."

DETROIT (M -- Authori-
ties believe the body of for-
mer Teamsters President
James Hoffa may be buried
in a Jersey City, N. J. land-
fill closed for the past six
years, two ' sources have
confirmed.
One of the sources, a law
enforcement official, said
yesterday: "It's Hoffa's
body they believe is buried
at Moscato's Dump."
A SEARCH warrant was is-
sued Tuesday b U. S. Magis-
trate William Hunt of Newark,
indicating the FBI wanted to
search the trash dump for the
body of Armand Faugno, a re-
puted underworld soldier who
has been missing for about a
year.
"The Faugno angle was a
smokescreen,"-said the second
source, a non-law enforcement
source who is intimately fa-
miliar with activities of the
Teamsters Union. "Law en-
forcement officials think there's
a good possibility Hoffa is there
in the dump. It's logical. It
makes sense."
The law enforcement source
said the U. S. Organized Crime
Strike Force in Newark sought
the search warrant for Faugno
because "They had a better
chance of obtaining a search
warrant for Faugno than for
Hoffa. Faugno is from the East
Coast." According to sources,
Faugno was known to frequent
night spots in the area around
the Jersey City landfill.

BEILEN, Holland (Reuter)-
A mystery explosion last night
rocked the hijacked train in
which, a group of Asian gunmen
are holding 35 passengers hos-
tage, and one gunman and a
male passenger were injured.
A police spokesman said two
members of the gang from the
South Moluccas, an island chain
in Indonesia, lowered the injured
men to the ground through an
open door in the train and called
for ambulances to take them to
the hospital.
HE SAID the gunman was ser-
iously injured.
The injured man and his five
companions had held the train
since Tuesday, killing three hos-
tages and holding another 35as

AATA, bus drivers
continue bargaining
By TIM SCHICK
The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) and the
Transportation Employes Union (TEU) bargaining teams con-
tinued negotiations yesterday in an attempt to avert- a strike that
loomed when city bus drivers Thursday rejected a new contract
offer.
Both sides prepared last night for a weekend of marathon
bargaining. The city's 150 bus drivers, represented by the TEU,
say they will go on strike if a settlement is not reached by 7 a.m.
Sunday when the current contract expires.
A STRIKE would affect the city's entire bus service, which
serves about 9,000 people daily, and includes the dial-a-ride pro-
gram. But the AATA plans to staff as many buses as possible
with si1rer-isory personnel.
Mike Berla, AATA Chairman, said, "There has been move-
