Hot time-summer in the city:
Locals find the weather a pity

then a limeade," he explained,
Some people' need no strate-
gies against the heat, however.
Their tolerance comes natur-
ally, as Randy Milgrom's dnes.
AS HE energetically jogs
down South University Ave.,
Milgrom explained his victory
over the scorching heat and
high humidity simply. "It
doesn't bother me. I like to
sweat. I think I'm a little bit
of a masochist,"
Milgrom also offers another
strategy for coping with the
weather - sitting around his
apartment nude.
An even more unique way to
beat the heat was offered by
Douglas Reid. "My secret way
of beating the heat is running
nude through the fountains of
Ann Arbor," Reid said.
But Reid admitted the
thought is ouly a fantasy, albeit

a nice one,
Reid admitted that along with
most people, the weather is un-
beatable for him.
"I am not enjoying this wea-
ther," he complained. "I am
constantly dripping."
Perhaps the answer to the
heat can be found from a group
of children who were laughing,
playing, and singing in about a
five inch deep "pool" in Burns
Park yesterday.
"I'm not hot, it feels good,"
one exclaimed.
"Even people who are 30
years old can do it."
ICE CREAM seems to be an-
other way of refreshing your-
self from the weather.
"It seemed like a good way to
cool off. That is, if I can figure
out how to keep the ice cream
from melting fast enough so I
can eat it," said Susan Olds,
battling her peach ice cream
cone, which seemed intent on

dripping over her fingers.
As she ate her cone, Olds of-
fered advice to others who plan
to get some ice cream.
than regular ice cream," she
said. "It's more refreshing."
But if you can't tolerate the
heat on any terms, take conso-
lation in the fact that hardly
anybody can.
The National Weather Service
reported a "discomfort index"
of 84, which equalled a previous
record. The discomfort index
measures the body's ability to
handle temperature and hu-
IF ALL ELSE fails, you might

Herman's room for up to 15
minutes, feeling and stroking

After Pratt reread his instruc-

federal prosecutor Richard Yan-

we're old enough to
have children, we've
been thoroughly sold
on the idea.
By our parents,
our grandparents,
our friends and
neighbors, the media,

had a choice in the
first place.
But there is a
choice. Having a
child is a tremendous
responsibility and
an important decision.
Probably the most
important decision
well ever make.
And once it's
made, it can never
be undone.
Just remember ..
you do have a choice.
So think about it,
and do what's right
for you.
