Although the tracks may pose
problems, the $7,000 car is it-
self in top working order, ac-
cording to Slater. Built of steel,
oak and walnut, "The car has

After operating regularly in

Portugal for 75 years, it is now
awaiting its fate in a local ware-
house. City fire fighters have
volunteered to refurbish it in
time for its planned display at
the upcoming Ann Arbor Art
Fair.
"We're trying to do this as
inexpensively as possible by
making it a community support-
ed project," explains Slater,
adding that the car was paid
for through private donations
and loans.

"Love
thy

This is a religious precept tht
challenges the mind. Love my e -
emy when I can barely deal calmly
with my in-laws? Yet this hard say-
ing has validity in a world where
even a small act of violence has
such unforeseeable repercussions.
Scientific advances have heighten-
ed our mutual vulnerability. Only
love and non-violence can sustain
us. We may concede violence is in
all of us. So is God. Try His way.
It works. Get together with your
family, friends, neighbors, or co
workers to discuss the problems of
violence and how you can work to-
gether to help solve them. For a
