CNCOtl, N.H. (Ai - Health
officials and the National Guard
issued conflicting statements
yesterday on reports that 50
pregnant women were among
hundreds of jailed anti-nuclear
power demonstrators in danger
of exposure to German measles.
Police arrested 1,414 demon-
strators on trespass charges af-
ter a 24-hour sit-in at the Sea-
brook nuclear plant site last
weekend. Some protesters post-

but more than 1,300 demanded
personal recognizance hail and
chose confinement when that
demand was refused.

A SURE sign of summer in Ann Arbor is magnolias. That, after all, is what "Arbor" is all about, and the character of the city
changes in the summertime in a way only summer residents ap preciate.
What are we all doing here?
By SUE WARNER
Although the majority of the University's
30,000 students have packed up their pop-
corn poppers and 'Farrah' posters and
evacuated the campus, a small percentage
of the student population will be spending
the summer in Ann Arbor for a wide vari-
ety of reasons.
"This is a pretty good place to be in the
sumner," stated Carl Brodie as he soaked
up yesterday's s'in on the Diag, organic
chemistry book close at hand. -
"tF I WAS somewhere else I'd be
workiing," ie explained. "This may sound
crazy, but I love paying to work and not
being paid to work."
Barb Weston is staying so she can take
calculus without any other classes to wor-
ry about. "Calculus isn't r ything," she
If it weren't for callulus, Weston admits
she would rather not be in Ann Arbor this
summer, "I was here last sunmer and
not much goes on."
SPENDING THE simmer in Ann Arbor
is nothing new to Ric Lee. An Ann Arborite
all his life, Lee said that he is taking class-
es this summer so he can fill his gradua-
tion requirements, "as soon as possible."
The engineering student seems to find
classes more enjoyable in the summer,
"There's less people around and you have
better teacher/pupil relationships," he said.
However, Lee offered still another reason
for taking summer classes. "I can't find a
iob and it'll keep me off- the streets."
"I'M STAYING to get away from my
parents," explained Lynn Sipher who grad-
iiated last week.
Sipher also said that she's staying in
town because, "I like the city a lot. There's
a lot of things to do. The parks are nice
and I just like being able to browse
around the campus."
David Lichterman's major reason for re-
maining in Ann Arbor this summer is that
he needs one more class to graduate. How-
ever, he added, "I hear Ann Arbor's dif-
ferent'in the summer. It seems a lot more
relaxed, and physically, the town's a lot
"ANN ARBOR'S great in the summer,"
said Doug Clement who has spent the last
three summers here and will have enough
credits to graduate after spring term.
"Everything slows down," he continued.
"You ca really enjoy the town. You're not
in such a frenzy all the time."
JUST AFTER buying his spring term
hooks, Bill Meltzer stated, "I haven't fig-
tired out why I'm here."
However, he did say, "It has something
to do with otherwise being unemployed-
to keep the unemployment statistics down."
Claudia Petlichkoff, who will finish her
studies next fall, believes her summer's
stay working in Ann Arbor will be, "One
more step in becoming more independent
from my family."
Even though she said Ann Arbor is, fine
for the summer and school year, Petlich-
koff added, "I don't want to make it a
"There's a large university down the
street, a Big Ten school, that I'll be at-
tending," said Doug Nelso, explaining his
major reason for staying in Ann Arbor this
summer. Nelson added however, that he
would much rather spend his summer,
"clipping dividends on Wall Street and cal-
culating my wealth."

Shake, rattle and coal
The Bureau of Mines is looking for contractors to
research ways to make the transport cars used to
haul coal out of mines vibrate. The bureau says that
shaking the cars would cause the coal to settle,
increasing the capacity of the car and improving
mining efficiency. Proposals must cover design, con-
struction, and testing of the method. If you are in-
terested write Brian Duzik, Bureau of Mines, 4800
Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa., 15213. If you are not
interested, then you are the same boat we are, and
all you can do is laugh.
The perils of Ca audine
Remember Clatidine Longet, the singer who shot
aind killed her lover, skier Vladimir "Spider" Sabich,
and then got sent up the river for a tortuous sen-,
tence of 30 days, which she could serve any time
she chose? Well, she's back in the news again. It
seems she felt that since she was suffering such a
stiff sentence, she ought to be released early if she
were 4 model prisoner. In fact, she went so far as
to ask that she be let out 10 days early on good be-
havior. But mean old Judge James "The Hanging
Judge" Carter denied her motion, thus dooming
poor, sweet Claudine to another 10 days of living hell
in her Colorado jail cell .Come on Judge Carter,
have a heart. All she did was kill a guy. And be-
sides, it's Mother's Day!
On the outside
Today will be partly cloudy with a good chance of
showers in the morning and a high of only 67 and an
overnight low near 50. Tomorrow will also be partly
cloudy and a bit cooler, with a high of 60.
