Quad, residents squashing roommates
By JULIE HINDS
What do you do when your roommates bug you?
You step on them, of course.
At least you do if you're a South Quad resident and the
troublesome "roommates" are cockroaches.
ROACHES, THE DORM'S perennial pests, have become
a "severe" problem for rent-paying tenants, Central Area
Housing Director Larry Moneta said last week.
The roaches have moved from their usual basement and
kitchen hideaways into students' rooms, and housing of-
ficials are battling the bugs by hiring exterminators for
In addition, dormitory staff members distributed a
special editioniof the dorm newsletter to residents. It con-
tained an abbreviated manual on cockroach combat.
MONETA ALSO circulated a memo to housing staff
which cited internal problems in dealing with the bugs..
"Among the various areas discussed was our habit of
mopping up behind the individual as he applies the (bug-
killing) spray, . . . poorly cleaned storage and kitchen
areas, and structural deficiencies which provide nurturing
homes for our petite freeloaders," the memo read.
South Quad Building Director Mary Antieau explained
that the halls nearest the service elevators on each floor
have suffered most from the hugs' visitations. The
elevators provide the roaches with a migration pattern up-
ward from basement areas; they have been spotted as high
up as the sixth floor.
ON OCTOBER 12, exterminators hired by housing of-
ficials sprayed the basement, kitchen, and snack bar areas
of South Quad, as well as affected areas on the third
through sixth floors.
But the spraying has caused the problem to spread even
further. "When you treat one area, it forces the roaches to
migrate," Antieau said. "Now I'm getting reports from
students on first and second floors that they (the roaches)
have moved downstairs."
South Quad residents Marty Johns and Paul Hunkar said
the roach problem is easing since the exterminators
sprayed the dorm two weeks ago, but that the infestation
was much worse at the beginning of the year.
"THE FIRST DAY we came here we could watch the
roaches running around on the floor. They didn't even wait
until dark to come out," Hunkar said.
The roommates said complaints to employees at the
dorm's front desk, their resident adviser, and their resident
director brought assurances that the problem would be ad-
dressed but added they decided to take the matter-and a
can of Raid-into their own hands. Even a full can failed to
kill the pests, however.
Housing officials stressed that while most dorms have
roaches, the problem is affecting South Quad more
"ALLyDORMS HAVE cockroaches," said West Quad
Building Director Leon West. He added that University
housing policy provides for all dorms to be treated for
roaches once a month.
In addition to the special bimonthly extermination treat-
ments, South Quad will also be fumigated during the
Christmas holidays, Antieau said.
Antieau said she did not know why the numbers of bugs
increased this year, but she suggested that summer oc-
cupation of the dorm, humid weather, wooden pallets used
for food deliveries, and returnable bottle pile-ups in studen-
ts' rooms may have aggravated conditions.
Moneta said that students with roach complaints can
have their rooms treated during the exterminators' regular

Although Michigan coach Bo Schem-
bechler didn't think so, the Wolverines
performed in a fashion reminiscent of
his dominant squads of the 70s, drub-
bing Illinois 45-14, before a
Homecoming crows of 105,109 yester-
day at Michigan Stadium..
The lopsided affair was over at half-
time, for all practical purposes,.as the
Michigan offense tacked 31 points on
1 the scoreboard. The second half, played
with little meaning or intensity, con-
tinued in the same boring manner to'
send a majority of the soggy, frozen
crowd for cover before the final gun.
MICHIGAN MOVED at will against
the undermanned Illinois defense, am-
massing 545 total yards on the after-
noon, with 376 on the ground and 169
through the air.
SCK Stanley Edwards led the attack with
152 yards and one touchdown on 18
carries and Lawrence Ricks added 97
yards and one touchdown on 10 carries.
Butch Woolfolk and Gerald Ingram had
one and two tallies respectively for
Michigan. Ali Ha jai-Sheikh booted a
field goal and made good on all six con-
version attempts. -
Anthony Carter was the Wolverines'
pass attack, gathering in five catches
for 121 yards, including a 25 yard
touchdown pass from John Wangler,
one of the three Michigan quarterbacks
to see action.
BUT SCHEMBECHLER wasn't
satisfied with his team's performance
in its fourth straight victory following a
disastrous 1-2 start.
"We had some spurts where we
played very well offensively, but I'm
not happy with the mistakes," said
Schembechler in reference to two lost
fumbles and seven penalties for 83 yar-
"I like to pass when we've got a
reasonable chance for success," con-
tinued Schembechler. "I'm trying to
reach a balance. We didn't throw well
today, but when we connected it was for

win any championships," Schem-
bechler continued. "I don't like it at all

Dave Wilson directed his team to two
first-half scores, but Illinois was unable
to mount any serious attacks the
remainder of the game. He completed
24 of 53 attempts for 318 yards and one
touchdown, shredding Michigan's
secondary on several occasions.
However, the Wolverine defense shut
down the Illinois ground game, holding
Illini backs to 19 yards in 19 carries.
MICHIGAN'S, defense was tough,
particularly in the second half, allowing
a -2 yards rushing and containing
Wilson to an ineffective 13 completions

Illinois received the opening kickoff
and after three plays, a loss of four yar-
ds and a 34-yard punt, Michigan took
over at its 49 yard line. Nine plays later,
Butch Woolfolk plowed over from the
one for a 7-0 lead.
The key play on the drive was a third

U' RESEARCHER SA YS MEDIA IGNORES ISSUES:
Study blasts election coverage
By JULIE ENGEBRECHT
Depending on which advertisement you've seen,
Ronald Reagan was either a smashing success or a
miserable failure as governor of California.
That's because Reagan's latest television adver-
tisement boasts of his gubernatorial successes. Jim-
my Carter's latest television advertisement lambasts
Reagan's past performance. Who's the voter to
Surely the Los Angeles Times or some other
newspaper caught on to the contradiction and
published an objective story about Reagan's term as
California's leader for its readers.
NO, SAYS POLITICAL Science Prof. Arthur
Miller: The story hasn't been written.
According to Miller, a researcher at the Institute
for Social Research's Center for Political Studies, it's
not unusual that the news media have ignored the
Rather, Miller's research suggests, the media
spend most of their time writing about who's ahead
and who's behind in the current race for U.S.
SINCE HE and some of his students began looking
at campaign coverage last November, 55 percent of it
has been focused on the campaign "horse race."
Of the remaining 45 percent, Miller says, one-half
of the coverage is devoted to discussion of the can-
didates' campaign styles and personalities. That
doesn't leave much room for explanation of defense
and tax-cut policies.
From his conclusions drawn from both computer
and human analysis of newspaper and television
campaign coverage, would Miller give newspaper
editors any advice?
"THE EDITORS will say 'This is what the public
wants . . . they're not interested in issues,"' Miller
said. "It's very circular, and they have a point-to a
certain extent. But they could do a better job in poin-
tjig out the differences that exist between the can-
Because the news media often present a negative
view of the candidates and don't emphasize the dif-
ference between them, people tend to be less en-
thused about the election, Miller said. Voter turnout
is reduced, and that, Miller said, is "dangerous."
The media often blame the candidates for concen-
trating on personal attacks rather than issues,

How to charm voters
Artists go to art school. Philosophers go to philosophy

politicans go? You guessed it-candidates' school. Both
major parties have campaign schools for political
