Are the Stones rolling in

Although rumors persist that the Rolling
Stones might play'a surprise concert at a local
nightdlub next month, no one in the music
business is confirming any plans.
Instead, a lot of guarded "don't knows" are
floating around.
The Rolling Stones are scheduled to play two
major concerts at the Pontiac Silverdome
November 30 and December 1. But the group
s announced that its current U.S. tour-its
rst in three years-will feature surprise per-
formances in small local clubs as well as con-
certs in larger arenas, fueling speculation that
a stop in Ann Arbor might be planned.
THE GROUP made its first surprise ap-
pearance on September 14, 11 days before -its
first scheduled concert in Philadelphia. The
announcement of the secret concert, in a small
Worcester, Mass.nightclub, was withheld until
the day of the performance, when a Boston
radio station leaked the news.

Promoters doubt rumors

Locally, word of "something big" at the
Second Chance nightclub has been leaked by
promoters, prompting some Rolling Stones
fans to surmise that the group will perform
But Tom Stachler, president of the produc-
tion company that books acts for the popular
Liberty Street club, said recently that the
"something big" is "definitely not the Rolling
STACHLER SAID he "hasn't heard
anything" about plans by the group to play any
small locations in the Detroit area.
Neither has Joan Meyers, an assistant to the
band's press agent in New York.
"All I have on my itinerary are the Silver-
dome dates," Meyers said. "We don't know
anything about small hall dates."

Jeff Elwood of Brass Ring Productions, the
company responsible for the Rolling Stones'
Silverdome appearances, said he believes the
group would not announce any small club dates
-so far in advance.
"They wait until they come into the town to
decide," Elwood said. "They wouldn't even tell
us; they would just come into town and do it."
WHEN THE group came into town and did it
in Worcester, nearly 4,000 people mobbed the
300-seat nightclub to catch a glimpse of the
legendary rock stars. Several arrests were
made for disorderly conduct, but police said
overall the crowd was "a very well-behaved

Caravan arrives
The Caravan for Human Survival stops in Ann Arbor for a rally on the Diag before moving on to a national rally to be
held in New York on United Nations Day (Oct. 24). The Caravan, sponsored by the World Federalists Association,
Planetary Citizens, and Campaign for U.N. reform, wants to raise public consciousness on anti-war issues and is cir-
-.culating a petition to be delivered to the U.N. asking for worldwide disarmament regulations and the creation of an
agency to insure compliance to the regulations.
New law library bars undergrads

The University Cellar may be forced to
move out of the Michigan Union if
negotiations between bookstore of-
ficials and the director of the Union do
not result in a settlement by day's end
Student government leaders staged
emergency meetings with U Cellar per-
sonnel Monday night and yesterday in a
last ditch effort to form counter-
proposals to those prepared by
Michigan Union Director Frank Cian-
ciola. Cianciola, who has declared cer-
tain key points as no longer negotiable,
hads given the U-Cellar board of direc-
tors until tomorrow to make a legal
commitment to remain in the Union.
Caballero, president of the U-Cellar
board of directors, the provisions
demanded by Cianciola for a new lease
would make it financially impossible
for the bookstore to remain in the Union
without substantially increasing prices.
"The administrators (Cianciola and
Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson) are telling us, to raise
our prices in order to stay alive,"
Caballero said. "We feel as students
that that would be stabbing our fellow
students in the back."
Caballero said that Cianciola had
warned U-Cellar officials several times
that local merchants-including U-
Cellar's rival Ulrich's Bookstore-had
shown interest in moving into
U-Cellar's space in the Union were it to

U-CELLAR board members are
protesting the combination of a 65 per-
cent rent hike- effective upon the
signing of a new lease- and their
responsibility to pay for a quarter of a
million dollars in renovations for a new
location in the Union. The move into a
more spacious store had been
scheduled as part of the over-all Union
renovation project approved by the
Regents last April.
Under Cianciola's proposals, the
bookstore's square foot rental rate
would rise from $5.48 to $9.07, an in-
crease amounting to $85,000 annually.
Board members said that when they
originally agreed to foot most of the bill
for renovation of the new site they were
unaware the rent increase would be so
"We didn't expect both costs to be
dumped on us at the same time,"
Caballero said. "Even (Johnson)
thought we wouldn't have to start
paying the $9.07 figure until we moved
into the new location."
CIANCIOLA SAID he imposed the
deadline for an agreement when U-
Cellar officials first told him they were
considering relocating to a site outside
the Union. He said the schedule for the
overall Union renovation project had
been largely planned around U-Cellar
needs. If U-Cellar decides to move out
of the Union, he said, that could place
the project behind schedule, a situation
that would affect the entire Univer-
"If they're not going to be there, we

need to know that,"he said. "It's just not
fair to the campus community not to
meet the deadline.
"There is an extremely favorable
bidding situation right now," he said of
other merchants' interest in the space.
"We're talking about the entire Union
renovation project."
CABALLERO SAID that, under
Cianciola's present proposals, U-Cellar
would have to find other sources of
revenue in order to remain in the
Union. -Board members believe that in-
signia items-the popular 'M'and 'Go
Blue' souvenier items sold in other
stores - could provide enough profit
for U-Cellar to stay afloat. But Cian-
ciola will not allow a change in the
store's 12-year agreement not to
sell such items, maintaining the Union
store's monopoly on the popular
sou eniers.
"This income from the sale of in-
signia souveniers is a significant por-
tion of the Union's. current operation,
and is expected to increase in amount
and importance in the future," Cian
ciola told the board members in a
memo outlining what he considered
"negotiable" and "not negotiable".
"These revenues are necessary for the
overall operation of the Union, in-
cluding providing services to the
student body as a whole."
ASSUMING Cianciola sticks to his
policy of preventing U-Cellar to sell in-
signia items, Caballero said, the U-
Cellar could afford a rental rate of $6.63

Attempting to guarantee law students
n atmosphere conducive to studying,
aw school library officials have barred
non-law students who are not using
library materials from using the new
library as a reading room.
The policy, which has been in effect
since Sunday, applies only to the new
facility, which was funded by $9.5
million in law school alumni donations
The old library is still open to non-law

"THE LAW library is the sole
depository of legal material at the
University, and law students need this
facility in the course of their everyday
studies," said Dr. Beverly Pooley,
director of the law library. "We just
can't provide (the much-needed) study
space for undergrads and other
graduate students."
. The rule was implemented in respon-
se to the overcrowding problem caused
by non-law students who came to the
library to study, often making it im-

possible for the law students to find a
seat, Pooley said.
"It was like a zoo down there," said
second-year law student Ron Klein
"They (the undergraduates) don't
have to use the law library, but the law
students can't go anywhere else for
research material," said second-year
law student Paul Hamburger." Law
students use the library as a tool, every
day, not just as a place to study."
