Sometome between 1850 and 1900 the
old farm house disappeared.
During the past three weekends
University archeology students have
been trying to reconstruct the history of
the long-ago demolished home near the
Fuller Road bridge and Wall St.
GROUPS OF students in Prof. Carl
Hutterer's Archeology 221 class gained
first-hand excavation experience
retrieving artifacts from three test pits
in what was formerly the basement of
the building.
The glass bottles found at the Fuller
Field site reflect turn of the century
glass-making techniques, but most of
the material recovered was refuse.
Teaching fellow Chip Wills
speculated that the basement was
never filled in after the house was

as a aump by people who lived in the
area, he said.
HISTORICAL CITY maps from 1850
show several farm houses near the
Fuller Road bridge, but all mention of
the house site excavated by the studen-
ts disappeared from the city maps by
the turn of the century.
"This shows us the house must have
been torn down by at least then," Willis
Hutterer said the Ann Arbor area has
many sites which could provide prac-
tical experience for the 70 students in
the class.
"IT IS CUSTOM with many univer-
sities' introductory courses to find an
area in which to dig," he said. The ex-
cavation site was chosen by a group
who investigated historical maps of
Ann Arbor.

pre-historical archeology in south-
western United States and Europe.
The archeology students said they en-
joyed their first excavation lessons.
"I'd thought about what a real ex-

I've participated in one," said LSA

Total University enrollment increased
slightly this year over last year, a move,
that surprised administrators who
previously predicted a decline.
According to figures released by the'
Registrar last week, total enrollment
A on all three University campuses (Ann
Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint) was
47,081-401 more than last year.
Enrollment on the Ann Arbor campus

cent last year, according to Joanne
Meagher, of the registration office.
Forty-three percent of the students on
the Ann Arbor campus are women,
compared to 42.4 percent last year.
The most significant enrollment
decline in any school or college on the
Ann Arbor campus occurred in the
School of Education, which dropped
from 2,066 to 1,753 students. Small
declines were also seen in the Law
School, School of Dentistry, and School
of Library Science.
Enrollment rose from 16,019 to 16,410
in LSA, and 5,065 to 5,285 in the College

President Carter and John Anderson
tried in New York City yesterday to
demonstrate their commitment to
Israel, and then both presidential can-
didates marched in the Columbus Day
parade down Fifth Avenue. Republican
Ronald Reagan spent the day trying to
solidify his California home base.
Joining Carter and Anderson in the
parade was George Bush, the
Republican vice presidential can-
The Democratic incumbent, who has
said he sees no chance of re-
election without carrying New York,
began the day with a noisy audience at
a Jewish community center in Forest

would 'turn his back on Israel. He said
he wouldn't negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization
unless it recognized the right of the
Jewish state to exist.

yesterday from a long list of former
backers of Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Anderson marched about a quarter-
mile behind Carter in New York's
Columbus Day parade, and said later
with a smile, "I waved to Carter. I blew
him a kiss."
Reagan, at his first stop of a day-long
helicopter swing through the sprawling
Los Angeles suburbs, was greeted by
some 200 hecklers in a crowd of 3,000 at
Claremont College who shouted "Heil,

Man assaulted near campus
A Southfield man was assaulted early
Sunday morning after an argument at
a West Quad party, police reported
yesterday. The man told the police he
was at a party at 11 p.m. when the two
suspects were asked to leave. He
claimed he saw the men later, with a
third man, while walking on South
Division Street after leaving the Pan
Tree restaurant at 3:30 p.m.
He told the police that he noticed one
suspect had a knife. A fight ensued and
the victim was cut twice in the
forearem, punched in the mouth, and
pushed around by the three men. The
beaten man walked back to West Quad,
received first-aid and called the police.
Police'said no officer was available to
take the complaint, so the man went to
the police station to report his assault.
The case is still under investigation.

"No barriers, no masses of.

These words express a
truth that time cannot age or

us a need to understand that
is immortal and insatiable. A
need that makes the unknow-
able food for thought and the
unheard-of music to our ears.
At Conoco Chemicals we
are more than mindful of this
need. It is an intrinsic part of
what we are and what we hope
to be. For our need to know

The many advancements
and refinements that we are
presently responsible for are,

Because the level of tech-

kind of expertise that we are
striving to attain.
