How do I love thee?

Campus dati
By PATRICIA HAGEN
J-Hop, the Twist, curfews, and visiting rules
may be "out" now, but love and romance are
still socially acceptable.
For better or worse, dating protocol on campus
has changed over the years. Finding appropriate
companions is still a challenge, even in our
enlightened times, but in years past the task
was even more arduous.
IN FACT, MALE students in the 1920s often
had to go to Ypsilanti to meet their dates, says
1930 grad Lawrence Kline. Back then, there were
nine times more men than women on campus
and women were more plentiful at a small
teachers' college located where Eastern
Michigan University is today, he explained.
The sororities and fraternities dominated the
social scene in those days, Kline, now an
Economics professor at the University of
Arizona, said.
And, "it was frowned on for sorority women to

ng rules relaa
date independents," the former "independent"
Kline remembered.
EVEN DURING Prohibition, alcoholic drinks
were a major ingredient in campus parties.
Numerous student bootleggers worked near
campus. It was potent and profitable, and
homemade - gin was the favorite drink.
Making the gin was an elaborate procedure,
the enterprising alumnus said. Kline remembers
going to University Hospital to give blood, and
when the lab attendant left the room, he would
fill jars with grain alcohol from the lab supply.
After collecting the $50 paid to blood givers, the
students would take their contraband, cut it
down-with water, add juniper juice and sell it for
$4 a quart.
At the end of the evening's party, a young man
would escort his date home to Ypsilanti, her
dorm or sorority. As often as not they arrived
past the curfew hour. And if the women were
late? Well, "that was their problem," Kline said
with a chuckle.

C

over years
OVER THE YEARS curfews and other, un-
written rules, apparently did not inhibit socially-
inclined students. "Girls got a big rush by the
upperclassmen," said Karen Rosen, who
graduated in 1955 when the ratio on campus still
favored the women 3:1.
A number of rules ensured that the female
residents conducted their social lives in the
proper manner.
"YOU NEVER had men above the first floor,"
except during rare open visiting hours, Rosen
said, and even then coeds had to keep the room
door open.
"When you were in the lounge on the first floor
you had to keep both feet on the floor," she ad-
ded.
When women went out in the evenings they had
to sign out and be back in by 11 p.m. on
weeknights, and 1:30 a.m. on weekends. While
they didn't turn into pumpkins if they were late,

*Extension
cuts could
*isolate 'U',
By BARRY WITT
Severe cuts proposed for the University Exten-
sion Service would plunge the Ann Arbor campus in-
to self-imposed isolation, faculty and staff members
warned yesterday.
Speakers at a hearing on proposed reductions in
the Extension Service told a Budget Priorities Sub-
committee that it is the University's obligation to
continue to serve students who are.unable to attend
classes on campus.
EXTENSION SERVICE and other University
staff members also cautioned against the Univer-
sity alienating the taxpaying public by confining it-
self to Ann Arbor.
The Extension Service is one of four University
departments currently under review for substantial
budget cuts. If the cuts are approved by ad-
ministrators, the service will lose up to $1.75
million, or 90 percent of its budget.
The department offers credit courses at six cen-
ters around the state as well as non-credit courses in
the Ann Arbor area. The service also directs
seminars and conferences at various locations in
the state using University faculty members as lec-
turers.
MANY OF THE professors who spoke admitted
they also have a financial interest in the well-being
of the Extension Service, acknowledging they are
paid on an overload basis for their teaching.
Harvey Bertcher, a professor in the School of
Social Work, explained to the committee that the
various professional schools feel a strong commit-
ment to keep offering classes off campus, whether
the Extension Service is able to or not.
The School of Social Work "would have to take on
these programs itself and would need more money
to do so," Bertcher said. "I can't see how (switching
funds from the Extension Service to the
professional schools) would save the University
money," he said.

University has an obligation to serve students

WCBN seeks more
funds, higher wattage

By KATHY HOOVER
WCBN, the University's student run radio station,
has plans to combat the financial difficulties which
have plagued it since its conception.
The station, currently n the midst of its second
annual fundraiser, is waiting for government ap-
proval to dramatically increase its transmitting
power-a move that could lead to better reception
and a larger University allocation.
STATION OFFICIALS feel confident that the
Federal Communications Commission will approve
the proposed increase from ten to 200 watts. "I don't
see any reason why we won't get it (the wattage in-
crease). The University supports CBN on the in-
crease and that is important," FM Program Direc-
tor Ken Freedman said.
Because of WCBN's relatively low wattage, it is
received only within the immediate Ann Arbor
area. Station officials say that if the wattage boost
is approved, broadcasting range will be enlarged
only slightly while reception in the existing range

will be improved significantly.
FOR A NUMBER of years the station operated at
a deficit, borrowing on future allocations, but
because of last year's fundraiser, the station stayed
in the black.
This year's fundraiser will feature special
programming with guests and live groups to en-
courage donations. WCBN staff members said they
hope to raise $8,830 to buy new equipment and help
meet expenses after the wattage increase.
WCBN staff members said the continued
operation of the station is vital for students. "The
network (WCBN) is the only place a student can get
hands-on experience," Freedman said.
WCBN GENERAL Manager Eugene Lisansky
called the station "a constant teaching and learning
experience for the staff members" and cited
weaknesses in the University's communications
department. "CBN fills a gap in communications
(training at the University). We train people, give
them feedback, and reinforce them, Lisansky said.

plans,
fnal:I
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan apparently has decided to
propose that his three-year, 30 percent
cut in personal income tax rates begin
July 1, and that a companion proposal
to reduce business taxes be made
retroactive to January 1, sources said
yesterday.
At the same time, the president ap-
proved a $26.6 billion increase in 1982
military spending and resolved an in-
ternal administration dispute by ap-
proving a scaled-back cut in foreign aid
of $1.8 billion and granting the State
Department discretion over how to trim
the spending, one source said.
BUDGET DIRECTOR David Stock-
man had proposed a $2.6 billion cut in
the $8 billion foreign aid budget, prom-
pting strong protest from Secretary of
State Alexander Haig.
The source said how the higher
military spending would be allocated
was "still being negotiated." The prop-
osed increase would push U.S. defense
spending in 1982 to about $220 billion.
The president also decided to seek a
phasing out of the government's public
service jobs program and a cutback in
unemployment benefits, sources repor-
ted.
REAGAN MADE FINAL decisions
yesterday on the key components of
his spending and tax cut package, to be
submitted to Congress next week. He
then left for Camp David, Md., to begin
work on a speech on his economic plans
that he will deliver to a joint session of
Congress Wednesday night.
White House press secretary James
Brady said that after three days of
meetings with his Cabinet and
economic aides, the president had
made final determinations on the major
budget cuts and tax reductions he
would propose. Brady would not
provide any details.
Reagan had pledged during his cam-

udget
i near ,
form~s
paign to seek a cut in individual tax
rates effective at the start of the year,
but many of his economic advisers have
since urged him to postpone the date
because of a larger-than-expected
budget deficit for fiscal 1981, which en-
ds Sept. 30.
The administration expects this
year's deficit to reach $60 billion. A per-
sonal tax cut beginning Jan. 1 would
drain an estimated $24 billion in federal
revenues in 1981, but by postponing the
tax cut until July 1, the revenue loss
would be held to $8 billion.
Stockman has said that Reagan would
try to lop off $50 billion from the $739.3
billion President Jimmy Carter
proposed for federal spending in fiscal
year 1982, which begins Oct. 1.

Local man
charged in
bank heist

By DAVID SPAK
A suspect was arraigned yesterday on bank rob-
bery charges after he allegedly tried to hold up the
main office of the Ann Arbor Bank and Trust.
Ann Arbor resident John Osier, 34, allegedly
walked into the bank on 101 S. Main at approximately
4 p.m. Wednesday. He approached a teller, showed
her what turned out to be a plastic gun, and deman-
ded money, according to Ann Arbor Police Sgt.
Harold Tinsey.
THE TELLER did not give the man any money
from the window. Instead, she walked to a vault and
on the way was able to inform the manager of the at-

tempted robbery, bank spokesman Richard Dorner
said.
The manager called police and within minutes
three police officers, Ted Bailey, Dale Williams and
Kenneth Michael, entered the bank and arrested
Osier while he was still at the teller's window.
Osier was taken to Washtenaw County Jail. He was
officially charged with bank robbery, although Dor-
ner said Osier never received any money.
Fifteenth District Court Judge George Alexander
set bond at $25,000 and assigned a public defender as
Osier's counsel. The pre-trial examination was set for
February 15. If convicted Osier could receive a life
sentence.

TODAY
Cupid's a girl
CUPID, THE MYTHICAL GOD OF LOVE, WILL
be a goddess this year - at least for Arlene Ver
Huel's Valentine's Day customers. The sex
change was necesary because Cupid's earthly
parents would not allow him to wear a tutu and white
leotards. It all started when Ver Huel, a native of Des

No Kissing
Kissing in public may be cool here, but in Sao Paulo,
Brazil, the local government has outlawed this sensuous act
of love. And the local high school kids are pretty upset about
it. About 2000 of them turned out to march against the court
order..The government made the ruling after receiving
complaints from local residents. One official said he was
upset with the cinematographic kiss, in which salivas mix
to "simply swell the sensuality." During the protest, the
demonstrators were asked to disperse by the rally
organizers. When the protestors refused, police moved in

severe thigh cramps and dark red urine - both primary
symptoms of rhabdomyolysis. The patient, who was given
analgesics and told to rest, recovered completely after
three days. The disease involves muscle breakdown but, in
most cases, is not dangerous, according to Dr. Robert
Powers. However, he warned, kidney failure can result if
muscle byproducts clog the kidney's filtration system. The
physicians noted that orthopedic injuries are much more
common among the urban cowboys than internal medical
problems like rhabdomyolysis. Doctors also observed that
many barroom bull riders are "inexperienced and often
inebriated amateurs." It looks like the road to professional

everything in America has been canned at one time or
another," noted Rosenauer, "and now, finally, love." Since
no one can actually see love, she added, there is no reason it
can't be in a can. She said the idea of canning love "was sort
of an emotional inspiration." Once the "love" has been
released, the can could be used as a pencil holder or plant
holder, Rosenauer said.
