What's in a name?
Two Puerto Rican legislators supporting rival
Democratic contenders for the presidential nomi-
nation almost came to blows late Tuesday over
an unfortunate pun. Rep. Severo Colberg, in blam-
ing the opposition New Progressive party (NPP)
for violence in last week's local meetings to elect
delegates to the Democratic National Convention,
referred to the NPP backers of Jimmy Carter as
"Carteristas". NPP Rep. Antonio Sagardia raised
a fist and would have flattened Colberg if fellow
legislators had not intervened. The word "car-
erista" in Spanish means "purse snatcher."
Glass struggle
Every merchant knows that it is important to
keep the customer satisfied, but that's pretty tough
to do when you have to scream. Such is the case
in New Orleans, where officials at the Louisiana
Superdome are preparing to replace the glass en-
closing the $163.5 million stadium's 44 ticket win-
dows. It seems that the glass panels were install-
ed without communications slots to allow custo-
mers and ticket sellers to talk to each other. They
either have to scream or speak through money
slots below the windows. "The screaming through
the solid piece'of glass makes it virtually impossi-
ble to concentrate," said one dome worker. Ben
Levy, Superdome executive director, said the sta-
dium must buy new windows because the present
ones would shatter if insets were cut.
Stay away, Dick
Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) said yesterday
in a television interview that former President
Nixon could do the U. S. a favor by staying in
China. He accused Nixon of violating the Logan
Act by making statements in Peking about U. S.
foreing policy. "I don't think Mr. Nixon's visit to
China did anything, and if he wants to do this
country a favor he might stay over there. He's vio-
lating the law." Goldwater says he doesn't think
the trip hurt President Ford politically because
the average American doesn't have "enough re-
spect for Mr. Nixon anymore to believe that what
he is doing is in anybody's interest but Mr. Nix-
You dirty rats
- The Justice Department, allegedly devoted to
policing some of the criminal vermin from our
society, is having trouble with the rats in its own
building. Some lawyers who work in the building
complain that they have to litigate regularly with

rodents and roaches in their offices. Attorneys Sin-
clair Gearing and Mary Jane McFadden wrote At-
torney General FOward Levi that it is "discourag-
ingly third-worldish to find that a great agency
of the United States government is surrendering to
slum fauna in this the two-hundredth year of the
Republic." Levi has not replied.

--University Commis-
sion for Women
Barbara Murphy

When Law Professor H a r r y Edwards
departed for Harvard Law School this win-
ter, he left an all-white all-male faculty
here behind him.
Edwards was the only minority member
of the University's law faculty, which has
a wide reputation for being "one of the
most staid in the country," according to
law senior Diane Fowler, coordinator for
Feminist Legal Services.
"I THINK the school may be proceeding
in a good faith manner, though," Fowler
said. "There's been a lot of pressure put
on people over the last few years by mi-

nority and women students."
Two women-one of them a black-have
been hired for the Fall term, and the Uni-
versity is making overtures to other quali-
fied women.
The trouble in hiring, according to Vir-
ginia Nordby, vice president for academic
affairs, lies in the fact that the University.
"since it's one of the top law schools in
the nation, always tries to hire the most
qualified people."
"WHAT THAT means," Nordby continued.
"is the top graduates from the top law
schools. And on top of that, among other
things, it means graduates who have clerk-
ed in the Supreme Court. Now, the Supreme

Court has only recently been open to wo-
men clerks, so there aren't all that many
people to choose from. That's part of the
problem for women, and it's part of the
problem for blacks."
The University, said Nordby, has been
attempting to recruit qualified minority
and women instructors, but has been out-
bid in the past by other, richer universities
suzh as Harvard and Stanford.
But Barbara Murphy, Assistant Chair-
woman of the University's Commission for
Women, said there are "many qualified
women and minority persons to choose

get dorm
About 30 dorm residents who
lost in the recent University
housing lottery will return to
the dorms anyway. The lucky
losers recently qualified under
one of nine 'categorical excep-
tion' groups.
The categorical exceptions,
cited by the Housing Office,
range from students under 18
and half of the Honors students
in special houses, to freshman
football players.
LOSERS who have already
notified their building directors
of their special status include
1 Bursley Music students, S
West. Quad football players, 5
Summer Bridge program par-
ticipants, 4 underage students
and 3 handicapped persons.
"I haven't heard a lot of neg-
ative feedback" about the lot-
tery, commented Bursley Buisi-
ing Director Loretta Anderson.
"There didn't seem to be a
lot of upset people."
Anderson said she has heard
of only one complaint. The beef
was over a lottery winner who
had no intention of returning
to the dorm.
However, many students voic-
ed their dissatisfaction con-
cerning the dorm lottery excep-
Bursley resident Lynn Koontz,
a dorm drawing winner, said,
"I didn't think the exceptions
were fair at all." She stated
that some exceptions, like al-

But Reagan insisted that
his close finish was a vic-

done this to an incum-

Concord, N. H., to resume
his campaign for the
March 16 presidential pri-
mary in Illinois. "I think
it's great and we'll go on
from here."
IT WAS Ford 51 per cent,

night to settle the issue. Ford

Karl Struss at 89 is something
of a legend in the world of
cinema and photography. The
artistic force behind many of
Hollywood's best - known and
most loved films, he was hon-
ored last night at the Museum
of Art for his contributions to
still photography as well as
cinematographic innovation.
Struss, now a California resi-
dent, was in town to commemo-


rate the opening of an exhibi-
tion of his still photographs
which will run through March
28 at the museum. The occasion
was marked also by the presen-
tation of an award by the New
Pictorialist S o c i e t y, making,
Struss an Honorary Life Mem-
STRUSS' career began in
1896 when he became interested
in his brother's darkroom equip-
ment. After learning to use a
camera, he tinkered with crude
rapid-motion techniques in what
was to become his first attempt
at motion-picture photography.
He started as a still photog-
rapher, utilizing a soft and
blurry style which has come
into vogue again today. He stu-
died under and worked with
the famous Alfred Steiglitz, in
a group dedicated to the trans-
formation of camerawork from
craft to art. The group, known
as "Photo-Secession," had a

strong influence on Struss' work.
He developed, during the same
period. the "Struss soft-focus
lens." enabling other types of
cameras to emulate his gentle
His second career took him
to Hollywood where he quickly
established himself as one of
the best cinematogarphers in
the business. Working with di-
rectors D. W. Griffith, Rouben
Mamoulian, Orson Welles, and
Charlie Chaplin, he was involved
in the filming of Sunrise, Co-
quette and The Great Dictator,
among others.
ACTORS prized his work. A
story told by Susan Harvith.
who organized the exhibit along
with her husband, John, relates
how Bing Crosby and Mae West
both refused to work on their
respective films unless Struss
would shoot the cameras - of
course, it wasn't the same film,

Ford appoints new
U.N. ambassador
WASHINGTON A')-President Ford said yesterday he is giving
former Gov. William Scranton the job of "standing up for the
United States against some of those unfair attacks in the United
Ford appointed his "good, close, personal friend" to succeed
Daniel Patrick Moynihan as U.N. ambassador and reaffirmed
administration promises that it will take a firm stand in the
world organization.
THE ACTIONS of Moynihan, Ford said, "have been good
from the point of view of the United States."
Scranton, appearing before cameras and reporters with Ford
and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the White House Oval
Office, said the job was "a great honor" but a very difficult one.
"I'm a Pat Moynihan fan," Scranton said. "I'm delighted
with the way he handled the job. I'm proud to be his successor
and I think we are on the upbend."
MOYNIHAN TURNED in his resignation three weeks ago
saying he would lose his tenure at Harvard if he did not return
to teaching. In his seven months at the United Nations he had
been the target of stinging criticism within the administration
and in the diplomatic community for his vehemence in rebutting
attacks on the United States and on Israel.
At the White House gathering, Ford told Scranton: "You
have a big job to do carrying out the policy of standing up for
the United States against some of these unfair attacks in the
United Nations and in carrvine oit my decisions."
