Israel bombs Lebanon; Kissinger
details his 'thoughts' in Jerusalem

By The As ,v ia "d Press
Israeli jets raided southern Le-

hours after reprisal raids that hit
Palestinian refugee camps and

Evidently hopeful of a breakthrough,
Kissinger also altered his plans to allow
for a return to Jerusalem tonight after
carrying Israel's response to Syrian
President Hafez Assad in Damascus.
Meanwhile, the Israeli cabinet went
into a special pre-sabbath session, Shi-
mon Peres, the information minister,

"I WOULD not like to try to put a date

Pizza Bob's successors
carry on store's tradition

Last of three parts
A legendary figure in the annals, of
Pizza Bob's is the streaker who hit the
establishment on a busy Friday night in
the dead of winter, two years ago.
The naked gentleman pushed his way
into the store through the crowd, jumped
behind the counter and shouted, "I'm
out of control. Leave me alone. I'm just
THE STREAKER filled his mouth with
a handful of ice, and then decided that
he didn't want to eat the ice, so he
spewed it out over the crowd. Most of
the customers reacted as though nothing
unusual were happening.
Fast Eddie and Typical Tim were on
duty at the time. Eddie just stood by his
subs, and Tim just stood by his pizzas.
The streaker grabbed hold of a gallon
of orange syrup and raised the bottle to
his lips. ie caught a whiff of the syrup,
however, and realized that it was too
concentrated to drink.
SO HE DROPPED the bottle on the
floor and began dancing on the mixture
of broken glass and sticky liquid.

crowd and out the door.
He proceeded to run two doors away to
the Garbage Pit (Pizza Bob's Uptown
now resides in the storefront which once
housed the Pit). He ran into, out of, and
back into that restaurant and finally sped
off into the night.
Such incidents, while they do brighten
up the routine of dispensing victuals at
Pizza Bob's, are of course few and far
between. It's the daily work of giving
people food that appeals to the workers
at the restaurant.
THE METHODS of managenient insti-
tuted by Pizza Bob, which continue to
this day, were so well received by pa-
trons of the store in the early days of
Bob's leadership that Wilson Loy chang-
ed its name from Pizza Loy to Pizza
Bob's even, before Bob bought it from
When Pizza Bob died, two longtime
employes bought the store: Fast Eddie
and Typical Tim.
Eddie had graduated from the Univer-
sity in political science and had worked
at the store even longer than Bob had.
Tim had graduated from Eastern Michi-
gan University in psychology,
