Land. Hicks even admits to her
own toy excesses.
She thinks that the biggest
selling toys are probably stuff-
ed animals. Good, old-fashion-
ed Teddy bears and Henry dogs
are bought most often, but the
stranger animals, such as stuf-
fed snakes and caterpillars,
don't seem to sell.
"People want more realistic
ones, ones that look like real
animals," Hicks says. Perhaps
the prospect of hugging a soft,
cuddly six-foot Boa constrictor-
good-night strikes students as

Denounces Shriver statement
Secretary of State William Rogers criticizes statements made by Sargent Shriver, Democ
presidential nominee yesterday. Rogers termed "a political fantasy" an assertion by Shr
President Nixon "blew" a historic chance to end the Vietnam war. (See story, Page 9).

If the 1973 mayoral contest
follows a similar pattern the
Republican candidate would be
elected with roughly 39 per cent
of the vote.
Under a preferential system,
however, the second choices of
those who had voted for the
HRP candidate would have to
be counted and added to the
Democratic and GOP totals.
If, as expected most HOP
votets made thee emocrat can
didate t3eir second choice, he
or she would win.
It is for this reason that most
Republicans are expected to op-
pose the measure.
The Democrats are divided on
Council member Robert Faber
tD-2nd Ward) said yesterday he
will oppose preferential ballot-
ing on the basis that it is "too
drastic a measure to be insti-
-AP Photo tuted for such short term gains."
Other Democrats, however,
have spoken favorably of the
ratic vice plan arguing it is the only way
iver that to prevent the Republicans from
gaining control of the mayor's
HRP members put forth three
basic reasons for supporting
preferential balloting, They are:
-The system would preclude
the possibility of the election of
a "minority mayor";
-It would allow most Vsoters
to see at least their second
choie candidate elected; and
-It would eliminate the argu-
ment frequently put forth by
Democrats that HRP only serves
to split the left of center vote.
According to Saunders, chang-
ing the ballot to accommodate
such a system will be difficult
but not impossible.
On a preferential ballot, he
said, people would choose among
nine possible combinations-six
first and second choice combi-
nations as well as each can-
didate with no second choice.
Although it all sounds rather
confusing, Saunders is confident
that he can "work it out so it
is clear to everyone what they
are voting for"
This is Newsprint.
Ham s loinis' C?
All by itself, this innocuous square of paper hardly
seems important. But every week about 170,000
pounds of newsprint comes into Ann Arbor as news-
papers or to be made into newspapers. Well-packed,
that would make a square pile 20 feet on a side and
10 feet tall, solid newsprint. After the news is read,
the paper is buried and both are forgotten. But the
pile of old newsprint will grow until it no longer can
Fortunately, there is a solution. Old newsprint can
be recycled and made into paper products, thus
sparing the landscape and trees that would other-
wise have been cut. In Ann Arbor the Ecology
Center has a recycling station on South Industrial
Highway, off Stadium, just south of the Coca-Cola
bottlers. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednes-
day thru Saturday.
