10 Cents Ten Pages

If-r-V SE E fSHAM QCA W DNItY

Tradition takes a blow
The most luxurious dorm on campus has lost
some of its shine. The traditional silverware isn't
on the Martha Cook table this semester. In its
place are plastic utensils and an explanatory note,
from the dietician, pinned to the bulletin board.
The commoplace cutlery was substituted after the
mysterious disappearance of the silver last semes-
ter. A rumor is spreading through the Gothic halls
that one unnamed resident made off with 150 place
settings in order to outfit her boyfriend's apart-
ment. "He must be doing an awful lot of enter-
taining," others joke. And some residents admit
that they still have a spoon or two in their draw-
ers for stirring late night cups of coffee. Mean-
while, the meat is served up on elegant china, but
it will be cut with plastic until the dorm's Board
of Governors settle the matter.

'Ensian winners
Organizers of the Michiganensian's photo con-
test, which managed to lure 73 entries, announced
yesterday that Dan Weimer had captured the
Overall Best of Show title for his "finger sand-
wich" image. Dan won a parka from Bivouac and
two other winners, Linda Garnets and Oliver Car-
duner won $25 gift certificates from Purchase
Camera and Big George's, respectively.
Instant encore
Last fall's instant lottery was such a magnifi-
cent success that tickets for a second round will
go on sale Tuesday. Michigan's lottery, which is
one of the most prosperous in the country, owes
much of its popularity to the instant game, which
sold 53 million tickets in a six week period. Prizes
for the second instant -game include 110 new cars,
in addition to cash awards of $2 to $10,000.
What, me vote?
Don't like Jerry Ford or Ronnie Reagan? None
of the Democratic presidential candidates strike
your fancy? Confused . . . Angry? Well, if state
Representative Mike Conlin (R-Jackson) has his
way you'll be able to end your frustration and per-
form your civic duty at the same time. He re-
cently introduced a bill that would give people the
option of casting "none of the above" votes in any
race with more than two candidates. Such ballots
would be considered votes of no-confidence in the
entire slate, under Conlin's plan. A similar mea-
sure just went into effect in Nevada. Maybe we
could interest SGC in something like that . . .
Happenings ,
Today is, you guessed it, the first day of classes.
So, if you have nothing else to do, you can always
run out and buy this term's textbooks and get a
headstart on your reading. If that doesn't sound
too exciting, you have your choice of a handful
of campus events. "Womanworks," an exhibition
featuring a wide range of works by artists from all
over the state, will be shown at the Union gallery
until Jan. 31 . . . the Ann Arbor Film Co-op is pre-
senting that perennial favorite, King of Hearts, in
Aud. A, Angell Hall at 7 and 9 p.m. . .. and the
Michigan hockey team meets the powerful Czecho-
slovakian National team at 7:30 p.m. tonight in
Yost Ice Arena.
Rocky burial
If you think laying down $4 for a Pet Rock is
stupid, wait until you hear about this gimmick. A
Los Angeles area church is offering funerals for
the domestic hunks of granite for $5 of course.
It's all part of a fund raising drive, said David
Mencher, a spokesman for the Emerson Unitar-
ian Church. "We found out a number of our mem-
bers had these rocks so we proposed a $5 funeral
for them. One or two of our members haxe ex-
pressed interest," he added. Services for the silent
household companions would be accompanied by
the hymn Rock of Ages and rock music. Seaside
and roadside burials were also being offered for
an additional fee. Perhaps a little tongue in cheek,
Mencher added, "I'm sorry about it, but we can't
do cremations.'

By AP and Reuter
LONDON-British leaders or-
dered 600 more soldiers to
Northern Ireland yesterday but
rejected Protestant calls to "de-
clare outright war" against the
underground I r i s h Republican
Army (IRA), a mainly Roman
Catholic movement.
An infantry battalion normally
kept on standby in England for
use in emergencies was dis-
patched to South Armagh where
five Ronian Catholics and 10
Protestants have been slain in
two days this week by sectarian
gunners. The move doubles the
number of troops in the South
Armagh area.
ANNOUNCEMENT of t h e
troop movement came after
Prime Minister Harold Wilson
summoned key advisers for
talks on the worsening security
situation in the province. The
meeting resolved to go on
searching for a political solution
based on power-sharing between
the 1,000,000 Protestants and
500,000 Catholics.
Merlyn Rees, the minister in
charge of NorthernIreland, flew
in from Belfast where he had
won from all Irish political party
leaders a fierce condemnation
of "the evil of sectarian murder
and violence."
Demands for a British decla-
ration of outright war "mili-
tarily to defeat the IPA" came
Monday from the Rev. Ian Pais-
ley, leader of the powerful Ul-
ster Unionists which wants the
province to remain part of Bri-
tain. Paisley warnedra failure
by the Labor government to

Regents review dorm lottery

By BILL TURQUE
While most dorm residents were fleeing
for the holidays last month, Housing Direc-
tor John Feldkamp unveiled this year's
edition of the housing reapplication lottery
at the December meeting of the Board of
Regents.
The plan, to be implimented in early
February, is the product of a committee
charged with revising reapplication pro-
cedures, which drew bitter criticism from
housing staff and students last spring.
THE RESIDENTIAL staff and students
on the committee have devised a list of
"categorical exceptions" insuring those who
meet the criteria of dorm space regardless
of whether they are successful in the'lot-

tery.
Participation in the lottery, Feldkamp
emphasized, is compulsory for all students
interested in returning to the dorms next
year.
The exceptions are as follows:
-incoming freshpersons and handicapped
students;
-Residential College sophomores;
-students participating in the Summer
Bridge Program, administered by the Coal-
ition for the Use of Learning Skills (CULS)
to provide approximately 50 minority stu-
dents with special orientation and counsel-
ing services;
-fifty per cent of the Honors students
cinrrently residing in Honors housing, who
will be able to return to the dorms in lot-

tery number order;
-Pilot Program freshpersons, who will
be allowed to reapply for space at Alice
Lloyd Hall at a percentage matching that
of returning students at other dorms;
-an affirmative action provision to in-
sure that eight per cent of the total dorm
returnees are minority students. If the lot-
tery proves insufficient to meet this goal,
additional minority students will be offered
dorm space until the percentage is reached.
As a rough estimate, Feldkamp says
about 2,700 of the approximately 7,500 dorm
spaces will be available after these excep-
tions are accommodated. Last year, nearly
4,100 students vied for about 2,600 spaces,
sparking sharp reaction against what many
