Fog, smog lay
wet blanket on
Salt Lake spirit *

SALT LAKE CITY (AP)-A 1/2-
month-long siege of fog and smog is
driving people nuts in Salt Lake, mental
health officials say, while ski resort
operators in the nearby mountains are
going broke this snowless winter.
The National Weather Service of-
fered hope yesterday, saying the thick,
clammy stick-in-the-throat murk
should break by the weekend.
Forecasters also said there was a good
possibility of some snow for the nearly
barren Wasatch Mountain ski resorts,
which have lost millions of dollars.
RESIDENTS HAVE gotten used to
forecasts predicting an end to the fog,
only to wake up to more, but this time,
says National Weather Service
meteorologist Rich Douglas, there's a
"strong chance" of getting cloudy and
wet weather.
Since Dec. 5, Salt Lake has had just
three fog-free days. The fog has con-
tributed to hundreds of minor traffic
accidents and closed Salt Lake's air-
port for days before the Christmas
holidays.
Worse, says Kent Griffiths, director
of Cottonwood Hospital's counseling
center, some people are angry and
frustrated about the weather in a way

he's never seen before. He says the
workload at his and other mental health
centers has been heavier than usual,
with many people complaining about
the fog.
RICK BANGERTER, assistant direc-
tor of the Salt Lake County Crisis Inter-
vention Center, says there was an
percent to 18 percent increase in calls
over the holidays, with many callers
saying the weather was making them
depressed.
Salt Lake Valley is a natural bowl
that traps temperature inversions. Fog
and smog build when moist surface air
is trapped by colder air at higher
altitudes.
This year, unusually strong high
pressure has kept out air-clearing wihd
and storms, Douglas says. The same
high pressure mass that allowed arctii
air to freeze the East earlier this month
kept Salt Lake residents in the murk.
But he said high pressure over Utah
has started to shift east, which could
allow southwestern air to move in,
possibly bringing showers and snow.
That's good news to Utah ski resorts,
which already have lost about two per-
cent or some $15 million to $20 million of
their annual trade, says Ilene Kamsler
Utah Ski Association assistant director

A curious collection of

(Continued from Page )
beers in a local bar can at least satisfy
their Sunday morning hunger cravings.
University graduate Curt Feldman
will deliver bagels, lox, cream cheese,
and The New York Times to customers'
doorsteps every Sunday for a 90t
delivery charge, plus the cost of the
food and the newspaper.
FELDMAN SAID HE bought the
bagel route last March from another
student because, "I thought it would be
profitable and kind of fun."
Bagels aren't Feldman's sole source
of income. He also publishes a guide to
local restaurants named I Eat,
Therefore I Am, along with a calendar
of the same name. In addition, he
designed a Rose Bowl t-shirt.
While bagels satisfy some hunger
cravings, Wiggy the Clown might
satisfy cravings for laughter. Wendy
Sheperd, 28, has been clowning around
Ann Arbor parties, hospitals, and store
Hopenings since 1977.
SHEPARD, WHO SAID being a clown

is something she has wanted to do all of
her life, also teaches a clown class for
the city's recreation department and
holds "funny face" workshops at
schools and day-care centers.
"I go in, transform myself (into a
clown), and talk about clowning,"
Shepard said of the classes and
workshops. "I just don't entertain" ther
children, she added. "I interact with
them."
Shepard does most of her clowning
for charities, although she said the
profession could be profitable. "I like to
do it for the fun," she explained. "If I do
too many jobs for pay, I have to stop
and do some for charity or else I'l feel
bad. It's a give-and-take type deal."
LSA SENIOR Ellen Guay also brings
smiles to faces after she's made them
"prettier." Guay, an English major,
has been conducting skin care and
make-up workshops in dormitories,
apartments and houses since last
summer. She reports to a manager
responsible for the products she sells,

but is in charge of her own presen-
tations.
"I was tired of waitressing and being
a secretary," she said of her decision to
enter the field. "I like being my own
boss." Guay said the job fits her time
schedule, and it allows her to make
money while having fun.
"I can never say I've left work feeling
tired or overworked," she added.
Another student who enjoys being his
own boss is engineering junior Andy
King, who "pretties up" term papers
instead of faces. King said he enjoys
typing term papers almost as much as
his student customers do. "I get to read
all about all kinds of different and
really interesting subjects," he said.
ANN ARBORITES who want the fast,
reliable, door-to-door service of a
bicycle courier service have Freewheel'

are ers
Express at their disposal. The company
was founded in May 1977 by Reuben
Chapman, an avid local bicyclist.
Chapman, who got the idea for a
bicycle delivery service when
discussing "small scale approaches to
the ecology program," contracts other
cyclists to deliver packages within Ann
Arbor city limits.
One cyclist is 23-y ear-old LSA
sophomore Debby Shields. She began
working with Chapman last May, but
has also made bicycle deliveries in San
Francisco.
"It's a good way to be outdoors, have
fun, and make good money," she said.
Sheilds' equipment includes a 5-speed
bicycle, a trailer to pull packages
(which can be as heavy as 200 pounds),
, and warm, rain-proof clothing.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)-A 29-year-
old woman has asked the state Supreme
Court to find a plant store owner guilty
of sex discrimination because a job ap-
plication asked about her menstrual
history.
The application also asked Judith
Wroblewski of Glastonbury how many
times she had been pregnant, when she
last had a Pap smear and whether she
had ever had any disorders of the
uterus. Her attorney said yesterday it
was an "obvious" case of sex
discrimination because male applican-
ts were not asked about their urogenital
systems.
WROBLEWSKI WAS applying for a
position in Lexington Gardens plant
store, which is owned by Pepperidge
Farms, Inc.
Superior Court Judge Milton Fish-
man, in a ruling on Wednesday, upheld
a hearing officer who found the plant's
job application fair. "Not all disparate
treatment of males and females is
unlawful," Fishman said in his ruling.
But Stone said the employers "are
subjecting women to stricter em-
ployment standards" and appealed to
the high court.

JOHN TIERNEY, a spokesman for
Pepperidge Farms called Fishman's
ruling "fair" and said the company's
employment practices were "not in an
way discriminatory."
Wroblewski had filed her application
in 1974 as a hard goods manager in the
store. She was interviewed and given
an application that included a mnedical
history form. She was then told she
would be hired and the medical history
was to be returned later.
Wroblewski and her doctor filled out
the medical history together, saying
she was "healthy." They provided only
the date of her last Pap smear, a test
used to detect cervical or uterine can-
cer.
A state Human Rights and Oppor-
tunities hearing commissioner who
heard Wroblewski's case before she
took it to court said women who had suf-
fered some problems in their medical
history should not be allowed to work at
the plant store.
Menstrual problems and disorders of
the ovaries "would affect a, person '
ability to be employed and, in addition,
whether that person should be exposed
to insecticides," hearing officer Neil
Atlas said.

Hoopsters upset bid falls short; lose to IU

8

By JODI BITTKER
A player's teammate can boot a
game away, but the Michigan women
cagers weren't looking at one another
following their 72-68 loss to Indiana last
night at Crisler Arena,
They were looking. at official Doug
Causey, who accidentally got A big kick
out of working the late stages of what
was looming to be a major upset in con-
ference play.
THE WOLVERINES (6-10) were
leading the Hoosiers (16-5) 68-66 with 50
seconds left to play and controlled the
ball when guard Lori Gnatkowski fired

a pass that was intended for Diane
Dietz. As the ball ascended from its
bounce it struck off Causey's foot and
caromed toward the scorer's table. In-
diana's Rachelle Bostic scooped up the
loose ball and went in for an uncon-
tested layup to tie the game at 68-68.
The bottom then fell out on the
Wolverines' upset hopes.'After working
the ball back down the court, guard
K.D. Harte threw it away with 17
seconds left, thus giving Indiana the
last shot at breaking the deadlock. The
Hoosiers worked it in to Denise
Jackson, who was fouled by Patrice
Donovan as she put up a shot with just
two seconds left on the clock.
One, two, just like that, Jackson
calmly sank both free throws to give
Indiana a two-point lead. Michigan
coach Gloria Soluk called a timeout to
plan for a last-second desperation shot,
but when play resumed Indiana's Kim
Land tipped and intercepted the in-
bound pass and hit a 25-foot jump shot
as the buzzer sounded to add the icing
on the cake.
A disappointed Soluk said she wanted
the ball to be in the hands of Dietz, the
Wolverines' leading scorer, while the

team clung to its small lead in the final
two minutes. "We didn't execute the
last two minutes of the game and it hurt
us a lot," she said.
The Wolverines overcame a 10-point
halftime deficit by outs oring.Indiana
25-14 in the first few minutes of the
second stanza. Dietz, who once again
led all Wolverine scorers with 24 points,
tallied 13 during the stretch run.
But Dietz could only be frustrated by
the fact that her team had come so
close, only to lose. "It was a great
game. I think that was the strongest
game we've ever played. We just didn't
get the breaks at the right time."
Poor shooting plagued the hoopsters
in the early going as they shot at a 32
percent clip. In that opening stanza the
Wolverines maintained a slim lead over
Indiana until the 7:30 mark when
Michigan hit a cold spell and was out-
scored 20-8. Indiana's Sue Hodges
scored 16 of her game high 25 points
during the first half.
Indiana got the majority of its points
in its stretch drive mainly due to the
height advantage it possessed when
Soluk implemented a smaller line-up.
Soluk remarked that her plan backfired

because it weakened the effectiveness
of her full-court press',in addition toheg
zone defense.
The loss dropped Michigan to 6-10
overall and 1-4 in the Big Ten. Next
week the Wolverines will travel to
Wayne State to take on the undefeated
Tartans, who are rated number one in
the state.
