When it comes to sexy,
our men win hands down
By JULIE HINDS
The men of the University are proving once again that they
lre more than matches for their Michigan State rivals-this
time in the field of scantily clad physiques.
Coming Oct. 15 to local bookstores is an as-yet-untitled 1981
-82 calender featuring male University students. The calend-
ar is Ann Arbor's answer to a similarcalendar published in
East Lansing last week, which sold 700 copies in its first three
EXPECTED TO COST under six dollars, the calendar will
be more than a bargain in terms of square inches of exposed
flesh. Like the Michigan State version, thecalendar will fea-
ture most of the models in various states of undress, ranging
from gymshorts to towels draped upon reclining figures, said
1Ncy Anderson, the calendar's creator and owner of the
local NBK promotion conmpany..
"It's classily suggestive," Anderson said. "It's not
seductive. There's no nudity."
Anderson found most of her models-all of whom posed for
free-through referrals from sororities and bar managers.
"When girls told me about some really sharp guys I trusted
all those votes of confidence," Anderson said, describing her
choices as "really good-looking with good bodies."
A couple of them had reservations about their possible
future careers and what the calendar would do to their
image," Anderson admitted. "But they were flattered,
because a lot of women were involved saying these guys were
MODELS REACTED TO the calendar with a mixture of
pride and embarrassment. "I'm not embarrassed in the
least. I did it for the hell of it," said Mike Martin, a senior on
the Michigan rowing team.
Martin, who appears in the calendar's most revealing
month, said he was photographed lying on a bed with a towel
for a covering.
"That was all," Martin admitted. "I'm just kind of waiting
to see the reaction."
MIKE BUTTS, a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity,
is a more reluctant model. Butts said he told Anderson he
"didn't want to do anything risque." Butts is the only model
fully clad in sweater and slacks.
Butts was selected after he helped several women with
their search for models by showing them his fraternity
"They came back and asked me. I was suprised to death,"
BUTTS RELENTED from his initial reluctance when his
fraternity brothers said he'd be "crazy to turn it down.
"My friends said no guts, no glory," Butts said.
Richard Winston, a senior football cheerleader, said he was
discovered for his spot in the calendar while walking down

Lotsa choices. Fine for you, but not
for three local concert promoters com-
peting for the student entertainment
One campus promoter lost money
last year. The other two struggled, but
managed to break even. All three hope
for better success this year.
THE THREE promoters-the Office
of Major Events, Eclipse Jazz and
Prism Productions-have been hit,
especially hard by low ticket sales and
a list of other problems ranging from
lack of shows to organizational dif-

to say exactly how much money was

ECLIPSE JAZZ, a student-run non-
profit organization, also faces financial
difficulties, said coordinator Max
Dehn. The group lost about $2,000 at last

Popular jazz artist Bob James,: a
University graduate, will perform a
benefit concert for Eclipse Oct. 24.
"Hopefully, the 'biz' on Bob will help
take up the slack for Davis and put us
ahead," Dehn said.
At the same time, officials at Prism
Productions, a privately-owned com-
pany which produces the TIDAL WAVE
concert series at Second Chance, said
that booking agency broke even last
Last year, Major Events scheduled a
series of 12 concerts, about four of
which sold out, said director Karen
Young. The small series was the result
of the lack of available talent and poor
economic conditions, she said.
MAJOR 9~VENTS currently has
scheduled for this season 12 concerts
and one magic show, beginning with
next Wednesday's Alice Cooper show.
Others are being negotiated.
When booking concerts, Major Even-
ts pays careful attention to student in-
terests in music. Young said student
tastes are "very, very pertinent to what
acts we book."
Though there's no real formula for
determining what those tastes are,
Young likened the process to a 'doctor
diagnosing an illness. "There are cer-
tain clues you look for," she said.
TICKET SALES are the
organization's only source of revenue.
Fall concern tickets are selling fairly
well, Davies noted, adding that Devo
and The Tubes are the most popular
shows so far. Ticket sales for the up-
coming Alice Cooper concert are slow,
"It's:doubtful we can make it up this
fall," he said. -
Eclipse Jazz, meanwhile, sold only
2,362 of a possible 4,177 tickets for the
' Miles Davis concert at Hill Auditorium.
