'Jaws' eats up big
local film crowds
By DAVID WHITING
Here, as in every other city throughout the nation this
summer, thousands of people are waiting anxiously outside
movie houses-not thinking about relief from the heat and
the theater's cool insides-but wondering about the gore they
are about to see and the horror they expect to experience.
If you don't know what movie these scare-hungry hordes
are waiting to see, you have been, no doubt, spending the
past few months in upper Siberia.
THE FILM, of course, is this year's smash-hit thriller,
Mark Worden, former manager of the State Theater
where the film is locally showing, stated last week, "This
is a block-buster picture-it is doing better than the Sting
which ran for 13 weeks - . . It has set a record. No movie
has come even close to it" "Jaws, he said, "is doing 50
per cent better than any other movie we've ever run."
Worden's claims are not idle boasting. Lines for Jaws
consistently stretch a block, and on weekend nights con-
tinues around the corner and down another block.
WHILE - the waiting crowds have not proved unruly,
their numbers sometimes have created problems for ticket-
takers when the fans pour through to squeeze the conces-

SINCE THE FILM "Jaws" hit Ann Arbor, lines like this have been an every day occurence
at the State Theatre. The thriller, a major topic of conversation for several weeks, has report-
edly made some people wary of swimming in the local lakes.

Friday's d e c i s i o n by the
Board of Regents to raise tui-
tion six per cent has left many
students with embittered atti-
tudes towards the University.
However, incoming freshper-
sons, while unhappy with the in-
crease, appear unwilling to back
a tuition strike.
"I WISH they would have told
us before this," said Doug
Franke, a freshman attending
orientation at Markley residence
hall. "I would have gone to
But he admitted reluctance to
commit himself to support a tui-
tion strike, "This is my first
Year," he said,
This opinion was echoed by
another freshman, Bill Mischel.
"I know a lot of people who got
screwed over by strikes in high
HOWEVER, not all freshper-
sons are willing to sit back while
tuition goes up. "I might sup-
port a strike," said Tom Eis.
"This school has a. reputation
for making you pay the most for

hike is a pain in the ass, what

Long time students, while
equally disappointed, were more
receptive to the idea of a tuition
strike though most took a wait-
"IF THERE were a clear set
of objectives which I felt -ad

I wouild (support a strike), ' said
Bob Montgomery, a fifth-year
undergraduate. "I would not
support one just because they
raised my tuition."
He explained, "The tuition

"considering that there are not

Douglas Beltz, from the Ann Arbor Hypnosis Center, demon-
strates the six levels of hypnosis. 80 per cent -of those sus-
ceptible reach the medium range while the other 20 per cent
go into the deeper levels, according to Beltz.
Hy pnosis: Expensive
By TRUDY GAYER
For $25 per hour session, the Ann Arbor Hypnosis Center claims
it will help a client lose weight, study better, stop smoking, or cure
almost any other habit one wishes to get rid of.
By heightening one's state of suggestability, center director
Douglas Beltz stated he has helped 70 per cent of his clients lose
weight, 61 per cent stop smoking, and 75-80 per cent study better.
THERE ARE two methods of achieving hypnosis. One is by
means of heightening one's emotional level and the other by relax-
ing the patient who then -"goes into a hypnoidal state where one
is more suggestible to what I say," according to Beltz.
"I have people sit Back in the chair; I talk about relaxation,
the conscious mind slows down, and the subconscious mind be-
comes open to suggestion so that c A' ideas can help them," ex-
"Hypnosis is regressive," said Beltz, explaining that one be-
comes "very relaxed, stops thinking logically or analytically, and
believes what is told to them." It is analogous to when one is a
child, he points out, "Young children don't have a logical mind
and are open to suggestion from people who are important to them."
