The University Club is getting a face-lift, but physical
changes are'only part of a concerted effort to change the
image of the Michigan Union restaurant to make it more
attractive and available to more people.
Union food services Director Greg Black said the main
objective in renovating the 'U' Club - scheduled to re-
open Monday, was to give a new image to and change per-
ceptions of the restaurant. "We felt a physical change was
needed to change the area, brighten it up," he said.
R ICHIARD SLINE, director of Student Organizations,
Activities, and Programs, said the decor changes at the
'U' Club are essential to increase business and to capture
the' new attitude sought for the restaurant, which is
located on the Union's main floor.

"It's got to be different in order for people to respond to
it," Sline said.
While the 'U' Club has nev er precluded student mem-
bers, according to Union b1o' rd of Directors President
Jeff Lebow, students were reluctant to join. The policy has
been altered to make students U' Club members
SLINE SAID the current renovations are being made
selevtively because an architect will be commissioned to
study more major changes, possibly by this spring.
"We're making changes that won't have to be torn
down. We're trying to band-aid right row," Sline ex-

There will not be an extended period

way to solve the population and energy

a nation's pursuit of additional land and
wealth. He added, however, that the
quest for enriched wealth may not be
valid, "considering that the two most

belligerent countries on earth are two
of the most prosperous.'
The writer seemed pessimistic that
any technological advances could make
a difference in the population problem
as long as humans inhabit only the ear-
th. 'The w orld population is increasing
exponentially. Ten thousand people a
day starve to death or die of diseases
related to nutritional diseases,"
Haldeman said.
If the world somehow finds a way to
level out in population, he said, it would
likely be with intolerable living con-
ditions. Another possibility could be an
oscillating population, which would in-
clude "increases, a major catastrophe,
more increases, and on and on.".

Haldeman added that this would make
wars the method of population control
in the future.
Probably one of the only possible
remedies to securing a long-term peace
on earth, Haldeman said, is to extend
human civilization into space colonies.

GSA official named in bribe case

Tokyo bust: Paul held
for possession of drugs

WASHINGTON (AP) - The former
head of quality control for the General
'services Administration's (GSA) sup-
ply division was named yesterday in
federal court testimony as the recipient
of at least $12,000 in bribes.
The president of Atlas Paint and Var-
nish Co. of Irvington, N.J., testified late
last year that his firm paid the GSA of-
ficial, Roger Carroll Jr., $500 a month
from 1969 to 1971 in an attempt to win
GSA contracts.
east September.
In U.S. District Court in Newark,
N.J., Atlas Paint president Dennis Tep-
perman said payments to Carroll and
two other GSA officials were paid
through attorney Arthur Lowell to en-
sure approval of the $5 million worth of
paint the company sold to the gover-
nment each year.
Tepperman's testimony makes
Carroll the highest ranking government
official to be implicated publicly in the

GSA scandal, which has led to 109 con-
victions of government employees and
contractors. The testimony, which took
place last November, escaped public
attention until now:
IN THE CASE, Lowell and a GSA
quality control inspector were convic-
ted of conspiracy to defraud the U.S.
government through the bribery
scheme. A GSA chemist pleaded guilty
to the same charge.
Justice Department sources said
Carroll was not indicted because a five-
year statute of limitations on his
alleged participation in the offense had
However, William O'Connor, a
federal prosecutor assigned to the
.Justice Department's GSA task force,
said Carroll remains the target of in-
vestigations into other GSA abuses.
CARROLL, 65, refused to comment
about the bribery allegation, referring
all questions to his lawyer, Jack
Stevens. Stevens said, "Nobody gave

Mr. Carroll money, period," but' he
refused to discuss details of the
At- GSA, Carroll was considered a
close associate of GSA's former deputy
administrator and friend of Speaker
Thomas O'Neill, Robert Griffin, who
was fired in 1978 by then-GSA chief Jay
Solomon. One GSA source described
Carroll as a Griffin "satellite."
According to his personnel file,
Carroll worked with Griffin as far back
as 1950 when they were both employed
in Boston by; the War Assets Ad-
ministration, a forerunner of the GSA.
Griffin, now a White House assistant,
refused earlier this week to discuss his
relationship with Carroll. Gary Hymel,
an aide to O'Neill, said the speaker does
not know Carroll.
Government sources said Carroll
refused to testify before the grand jury
that handled the Atlas Paint case, in-
voking his Fifth Amendment right
against self iincrimination.

TOKYO (AP) - It was a hard day's
night for former Beatle Paul McCar-
tney, jailed on charges of marijuana
possession and smuggling after his
arrest yesterday at Tokyo's airport.
The bust came as McCartney and his
rock-group, "Wings," arrived for an 11-

The 37-year-old ex-Beatle was seized
by airport customs officers who said
they found 219 grams - 7.7 ounces - of
marijuana in a plastic bag in one of the
singer's suitcases as he passed through
the airport checkpoint.
McCartney was quoted by customs
officials as having said he "brought
some hemp for my smoking." Japanese
authorities use the term "hemp" for
AN OFFICIAL of the Health and

Welfare Ministry's intelligence section
told The Associated Press that McCar-
tney would receive preferential treat-
ment in jail - McCartney, he said,
would be fed coffee and bread insteadof
rice and green tea.
McCartney was led out of the airport
in handcuffs and jailed overnight,
authorities said, and would face a
Japanese magistrate within 72 hours.
McCartney was held without bail, but
allowed to speak with a lawyer, police
If found guilty, he could be sentenced
to a maximum of seven years in prison
and face a fine of up to the equivalent of
