Parents, youngsters
Sysx enjoy ballpark fun

Parents with images of Reggie
J a c k s o n and Dave Rozema
dancing in their heads shoving
bats in the hands of their frail
knock-kneed youngsters, do not
produce great baseball stars.
Nor is this the typical parent
involved with Ann Arbor Rec-
reational Baseball (AARB).
The parents want to win, the
children want to win, the coach-
es want to win, but most of all
everyone wants to have good
clean all-American fun--at least
most of the time.
NOTHING CAN urpass the
look of joy on a child's face as
he or she scores the go-ahead
run in a very close competitive
game but striking out and losing
is also part of the game.
"Im happy when he gets on
base, but I'm also happy when

he strikes out and doesn't walk
away upset," Judy ('arLson saii
of her sOn John. Young Carlst-
plays at the 13-Year old level.
The parents appear to gen
uimely enjoy the games. The
only complaints heard concern
the bleachers, or rather the lack
of bleachers. "There is no com-
fortable way to sit on these
bleachers," they chorus.
BUT MANY of these parents
have been through alt this in
earlier years.
Their children started playing
T-ball at nine and regular base-
ball at ten tnd by the age of 13
the parents have seen five years
of baseball. Also, since AARII
teams are determined by neigh-
borhoods matty of the children
have played on the same teams
for years.

Paper chased
Put away that apocalyptic science fiction book
about New York city suffocating under a mile of
paper - Mayor Abraham Beame has signed a bill
to convert many of New York's 105 tons of city re-
cords into waste paper and consolidate the rest.
New York city council president Paul O'Dwyer says
there's enough paper in the city's 800,000 file cabi-
nets to stretch from New York to Tampa, and that
the city will save $2.5 million the first year it does
away with the useless paperwork. Give my re-
gards to Fort Howard/Remember me to Kimberly

Toenail or not toenail
About twenty years ago, H. Allen Smith wrote a
book in which one character- said he was collecting
belly button lint to stuff a pillow. Unfortunately, a
lot of readers thought Smith was that man, and
sent the author belly button lint by mail. Well,
Loyola University is having somewhat the same

problem - people are sending toenails intended
for Loyola to other Chicago area schools, such as
Northwestern and the University of Chicago. Carl
Moore, chairman of Loyola's chemistry depart,
ment, is collecting toenail clippings because re-
searchers have found traces of gold in them. At
first they assumed the metal was transferred
through the body from gold fillings, but further re-
search discovered gold even in the toenails of new-
born infants. Moore is asking anyone interested in
donating toenail clippings to write to him at Loyo-
la first so he can compile data on age, sex, and
state of health - as well as sending them the pro-
per university address. Any takers?

Tonight's low will be in the mid-fifties, and tomor-
row will be overcast with a good chance of show-
ers and a high of only 75. It's like a cold wave,
freezing in my heart.
