bruised head because you didn't
have the foresight to buy one in
the first place. But the best thing
is to go to the nearest student
travel center and book reserva-
tions on Inter-European charter
flights. They are most often
cheaper than a second class train
ticketsand much quicker. NB.
you moot have a valid interna-
tional student I.D. card to book
such flights.
The advantage in youth hos-
tels and students hostels is that
they are cheap. The disadvan-
tage is that if the rooms are
singles or doubles they are often
filled up. If the accommodations
are dorm-style, there is a con-
stant problem of rip-offs. Also
dorm type accommodations are
not good if you keep late hours.
I stayed in a dorm hostel in Cop-
enhagen for two days and after
getting in at 5 a.m. was woken
at 7:30 a.m. with "lights on" and
a call for breakfast.
If you plan to go to Paris, by
all means, make your reserva-
tions in advance. That means
now. Many travelers are spend-
ing one night in Paris looking
for a room and spending the next
night sleeping on a train, head-
ed for a different destination.
Rooms are extremely difficult
to come by in the "city of lights".
Now, go off and have a good

"A triumph!" - Vincent
Canby, N.T. Times.
"The best movie I have seen
all year" - Judith Crist.
"Manupelli's masterpiece" -
Joseph Morgenstern.
None of the above comments
have been made about the new
George Manupelli film, Cry Dr.
Chicago, and they probably
won't be, but that's Canby, Crist
and Morgenstern's problem.
Ann Arbor knows.
Dr. Chicago has become a
local folk hero of gigantic pro-
portion, and he deserves h i s
j reputation. He is to the Amer-
ican Myth what Bizarro is to
Superman, a distortion that is
extremely comical but has un-
dertones of tragedy.
Alvin Chicago is all the things
the American hero is supopsed
to be. He says he has studied
and worked with Dr. Schweitz-
er, but he prides himself on
being a top card shark (which

man. who pursues him relentlessly.

his mind is more crazed than well done. The settings - most-
all of the Freak Brothers com- ly local - are pefect, a nd
bined. Chicago goes a step be- prove that you don't need ex-


yond Walter Mitty in that he
succeeds in living and believ-
ing his illusions.
Dr. Chicago is accompanied
by his consort, Sheila M ari e
Marie, whose laconic placidity
is the perfect foil for his cease-
less babble. The rest of the
menagerie consists of Mike,
a mute who is like a pet for
Alvin and Sheila, and Viera, a
girl they picked up in their
last adventure. She doesn't talk
either, except Romanian.
The film chronicles the con-
tinuing story of the quest f or

pensive sets when you have the
Rackham Building or the old
train station to work with. The
writing is a pure delight, with
parodies and put-ons coming
fast. The acting is excellent.
If you don't already k n o w
and love Dr. Chicago and crew,
this movie is the perfect op-
portunity to meet them; it
moves much faster than t h e
last episode, and is funnier.
No showings have been sched-
uled after Wednesday night's
premiere, but hopefully t h e y
will be.
