Getting a complete list of movies of-
ten meant collecting posters, several
leaflets, and anything else you could
grab.
Now things -are a little different.
Posters and leaflets still abound, but
there's also the Michigan Cinema
Guide, a free, 40-page listing and
synopsis of campus movies covering
the first half of this semester. Another
movie guide is scheduled to come out
later this month to complete the list.
MANY STUDENTS are pleased
about the cinema guide. LSA fresh-
woman Ann Price said she found the
movie guide very helpful. "I don't have

new probe
of Donovan
WASHINGTON (AP) - Five
Democratic senators, citing "two
serious inaccuracies" in the FBI's in-
vestigation, called yesterday for a
renewed investigation into Labor
Secretary Raymond Donovan's past
business dealings.
In a letter to Sen. Orrin Hatch
(R-Utah), chairman of the Senate
Labor and Human Resources Commit-
tee, the Democrats said the new fin-
dings "lend additional credence to the
statements of Ralph Picardo," who ac-
cused Donovan of having ties to
organized crime figures.
IN THEIR LETTER to Hatch
requesting further FBI investigation,
the Democrats reported a "potentially
substantial allegation" that Donovan's
construction company may have made
an illegal purchase in 1968 of topsoil ob-
tained from public property.
The Democrats also said the FBI
should be asked to look into the
previously reported allegations by a
former protected witness, Pat Kelly,
that Donovan's company had ties to the
Genovese organized crime family and
that Donovan participated in bid-
rigging.
Donovan was unavailable for com-
ment.
A SPOKESPERSON said the com-
mittee staff would investigate the
allegations in the letter, but said Hatch.
did not promise an immediate letter to
the FBI.
"All allegations, including the most
recent ones, will be fully gone into and
evaluated in a thoroughly bipartisan
manner by the staff of the main Senate
Labor and Human Resources Commit-
tee," the spokesperson said.
"Any substantive findings will be
promptly forwarded in full to ap-
propriate federal officials and law en-
forcement agencies, as has been done
previously."

Amin wants guns,. -
U.S. education for
his 22 children ._

JIDDA, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Exiled
Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, describing
himself as "a simple human being" and
a devoted homemaker, has appealed to
the Moslem world for guns and to the
United States for an education for his
22 children.
Amin, ousted from his East African
nation in April 1979 and enjoying Saudi
hospitality since last year, emerged
from relative obscurity last week to tell
The Associated Press he could conquer
Uganda in a week with some help from
his friends.
"I HAVE 13,000 diehard followers at
home who-.await my return," he said.
"But they have no ammunition, little
food, and no medicines. My people are
suffering. Uganda will be lost to
Islam."

Amin, a 53-year-old Moslem, claimed
his supporters controlled some 10,000
square miles of northern Uganda,
which he could use as a base for moving
on the capital of Kampala and ousting
the government of President Milton
Obote.
"It takes a few anti-aircraft guns,
some rocket propelled grenades, anti-
tank guns, rifles, and ammunition to
capture Uganda," he said.
THE HUSKY, TOWERING former
dictator said he spends most of his time
in Saudi Arabai scrutinizing maps and
preparing a strategy for his return to
Uganda.
"I also cook food for my family, I iron
clothes, and sweep the floor very ef-
ficiently," he said, with a broad smile.

U g
approaches
record low

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-Women's liberation and economic hard
times are influencing more American women to remain
childless, perhaps establishing a record, the government
reported.
In a report on childbearing trends based on data gathered
in the late 1970s, the Census Bureau said the American birth
rate continues to decline. It is now measured at 2.2 children
per family, just a point above the "zero-growth" rate of 2.1
children per family in Japan and many European countries.
SOME SPECULATE that if current low rates continue, the
proportion of women completing their childbearing years
without having a baby could be as high as 25 percent to 30
percent-well over 1979's 14.2 percent and topping the record
22 percent of women born in the 1880s who went childless.
The Census Bureau cites interweaving social and economic
patterns to account for the new decline in the birth rate.
"While the increase in childlessness among young women

is due, in part, to the economic uncertainties faced by young
couples today," the report says "recent changes can also be
traced to the attitudes of young wives toward early child-
bearing and the pursuit of their own educational and career
goals."
ONLY ABOUT ONE in four women had children early in
their marriages in the late 1930s. It was the latter half of the
Depression and the eve of World War II. Money was tight and
many husbands were away.
Then came more prosperous times and early motherhood,
especially in the early 1950s, triggered a higher birth rate.
With the arrival of what the Census Bureau calls the
"modern contraceptive period" of the late 1960s and 1970s,
only 30 percent of women of childbearing age had their first
baby by the age of 21.
BUT THE LATEST data also shows that very few
women-only 7.4 percent-wait until the age of 30 or older to

FIN ALLY, THE ULTIMATE in pr ice index.
Raymond DeVoe, a New York City economist,
says he has found out that the cost of loving is up
419 percent since the early 1950s while the cost of
living has climbed a mere 158 percent. DeVoe, a market
