Ticket lines give
way to lottery
In an effort to eliminate the traditional Iong lines i-
volved in purchasing football tickets, the University Ticket
Office has adopted an optional lottery for this coming sea
On September 1 at noon, strdents can draw a number
which will determine their place in line wher tickets go on
THE PRIORITY system of seriors buying tickets on the
first day, juniors the second . . . will continue.
For non-block seating, one person may hold a place n
line for up to 12 people until September 8 at 8x a.r. At this
time the ratio drops to one representative for four students
Representatives must be present for "roll cll" or the whole
group loses their place in line.
For block seating of 13 or more, one person can repre-
senit the entire group. tHowever, all people in the group wrIl
"lose one day's priority" according to Al Renfrew, athletic
Ticket Manager. If the representative from the block groips;
are absent from "'roll call" the entire group will lose its
place in line.
THE DATES for cashing football coupons in, whether or
not you go through the lottery, are as follows:
* Friday, September 9, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for seniors,
who should have 3AU2E on their ID cards.
Monday, September 12, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for juniors who
should have AU2E on their ID cards.

. o..one giant step for robots
Joining famous movie stars of the past and present, See Threepio (C3PO), one of the famous ro-
bots from the box office smash "Star Wars," places his foot prints in the cement in front of
Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Job opening
Any of you unemployed teachers out there with
a yen for a slightly exotic job may wish to stop
by the Placement Center at S.A.B. between one
and four o'clock today. Representatives of King
Faisal University in Saudi Arabia will be interview-
ing qualified persons with an M.A. in TESL (Teach-
ing English as .a Second Language), TEFL (Teach-
ing English as a First Language), English Educa-
tion and Linguistics.
Quietly bourgeois
A study of population data by researchers at
Michigan State University reveals, that posh Bloom-
field Hills is the richest city in the state - by
more than $12,000 average annual income per resi-
dent over its closest competitor, Grosse Pointe
Shores. Bloomfield's residents make an average
of $29,021 annually. Ann Arbor ranks 56th among
the state's 531 cities and towns with an average
per capita income of $5,562, while Ypsilanti ranks
244th, with $4,204. Other major cities listed include
Detroit at $4,463 (183rd); Lansing $4,614 (149th);

Kalamazoo $4,542 (163rd); Marquette $3.916 (327th);
Benton Harbor $3,114 (511th); and Saginaw $4,216
Happenings ...
. today gives you a chance to show your po-
litical stripes, as a rally takes place on the Diag
at noon in support of the Stop The Kent State Gym
Movement ... there will be a free concert on the
EMU Mall at noon entitled "Focus" (presumably
not featuring the Drtch band of the same name)
... Committee C, the biological research review
committee, will meet at 3 p.m. in 3087 School of
Public Health I (call in advance if you want to
attend - 764-5435) ... the Christian Science Or-
ganization holds its weekly meeting in Room 4304
of the Union at 7:15 ... there will be a meeting
of "reconciliation, outreach for homosexual Christ-
ians" at 7:30 in the Newman Center of St. Mary's
Church on Thompson to discuss Fr. Wood's book
Another Kind of Love ... the A/V Center will show
Charlie Chaplin film shorts in MLB 3 at 7:30 p.m.
and an photographic exhibit of historic Ann Ar-

bor architecture opens today at the Jean Paul Slus-
ser Gallery in the School of Art.
Cap envy
Someone touring the Sigmund Freud museum in
Vienna, Austria took Freud's cap and left his or
her own cap in its place, police said today. The
cap was one of the items in the house where the
founder of psychoanalysis had his office and apart-
ment. Police suspect a group of American students
who were touring the house at the time for the
Freudian slip-up, but it sounds to us like the sign
of a deeper illness. Maybe if someone on the staff
had an unhappy childhood ...
On the outside
August is really trying its hardest to live up to
its billing as "hottest month of the summer," but
let's face it - August has a pretty tough act to
follow. A valiant effort to heat up today will re-
sult in a high of 83, but only after a morning,
shower. Tomorrow August bounces- back, with a
sunny day and a high of 86.
