Recyclers work to expand program in dorms

By JEFF VOIGT
All those old yellowed newspapers
,and non-returnable bottles and cans lit-
~tering your rooms can be put to good
ruse, according to two area recycling
R:organizations.
Campus Recycling, a student volun-
teer program based in East Quad, is'
:starting a drive to establish a collection
,site for recyclables in each campus
residence hall. Currently, only East
:Quad has such a station.
Campus Recycling is working with
Recycle, Ann Arbor, a community-
:based group affiliated with the Ecology
Center, to collect throwaways for
Frecycling. Both groups are trying to in-
crease their membership.
UNIVERSITY sophomore Lisa
Goldoftas, head of the two-year-old
Campus Recycling, explained that
large turnover is one of the group's
major hindrances. "Our biggest
#.problem is continuity from year to
year, because of graduation and lack of
interest."

Recycle Ann Arbor collects
recyclables from East Quad, and the
city's Old West Side. This week, the
group also will start collecting at cam-
pus co-ops.
The two-and-one-half-year-old group
also hopes to start a city-wide recycling
program within the next two years, said
University graduate and co-founder
Dan Ezekiel. But he added that the
organization needs more money and
volunteers to continue functioning.
"We are planning two tag days-one
campus, and one city-wide," Ezekiel
said. "But our first priority is getting a
strong dorm program going."
He added that other possibilities for
fund-raisers include a benefit concert,
and a square dance. The group hopes to
raise $25,000 by May 1981.
GOLDOFTAS also authored a
"Recycling Manual for Dorms," which
outlines methods for starting dorm
recycling programs, and offers
suggestions to offset common
problems, including:
" Accessibility to students and

Area organizations
recruit members

loading docks;
* Finding an out-of-the-way place for
the station, so it won't be subjected to
vandalism;
" Finding containers to hold the
material; and,
* Ensuring the station is adhering to
fire hazard and safety codes.
THE BOOKLET also cautions,
however, that while dorm
organizational meetings are useful,
large turn-outs are rare. Ten people at-
tendeda joint organizational meeting
Thursday, but Ezekiel noted that the
organizers weren't expecting a large
turnout.
But Goldoftas stressed that "It seems
very obvious to me that we should

recycle. It's not a question of recycling
or not, it's a matter of implemen-
tation."
And Jonathon Dreyfuss, the other co-
founder of Recycle Ann Arbor, noted,
"This University is based on research,
and it (the research work) is all just
paper."
Organizers also offered suggestions
to prospective contributors. They said
newspapers, magazines, or phone
books should be bundled in stacks six to
eight inches high. White and brown
paper should be separated and tied with
string or placed in boxes with all
staples removed. Cans and glass bottles
should be rinsed, placed in separate
barrels, depending on their metal com-
position.

BOTTLES, CANS,, and newspapers at this East Quad collection site will be
taken to the Ecology Center for recycling.

VICTIM SURVIVES IN STREETS:
Teen -fights canlc(

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Joe
Kreuter's chaotic struggle with two
demons - adolescence and possibly
terminal cancer - has resulted in drug
addiction, ejection from -a National In-
stitutes of Health treatment program,
and months of hand-to-mouth survival
on the streets.
"All I want is what is best for my
son," said Eloise Kreuter of Arlington,
whose 18-year-old son suffers from can-
cer of the connective tissues.
BUT YOUNG Kreuter - angry and
suffering pain that requires medication
every few hours - is not an easy young
man to help.
"I was only a kid and my life was so
,good when this happened," Kreuter told
the Washington Pont in yesterday's
edition. "I played basketball and I
thought of going to college and now I
just hurt."
Dr. Lucius Sinks, a cancer specialist
at Georgetown University, said, "These

days, kids with cancer live longer, but
it's at the price of aggressive therapy
that is often terribly mutilating and oc-
curs at a time when kids are most con-
cerned about how they look."
AFTER 2% YEARS of treatment at
NIH in Bethesday, Md., Kreuter was
barred from the facility in January
when he persisted in smoking
marijuana in the wards and became in-
creasingly difficult to handle.
Physicians at the institute say he once
physically assaulted a doctor, a charge
he denies, and passed out illegal drugs
to other patients.
The Kreuters' landlady ordered him
out of the family's rented home after
neighbors complained about his noisy,
disruptive behavior.
After his mother's fruitless effort to
find a place for him in a half-way house,
Kreuter hit the streets.
FOR SEVEN months, he lived in
vacant lots and park benches in nor-

drugs,
thern Virginia, he said, fighting off
muggers who wanted his narcotic, pain-
killing drugs.
"People would push you around,
make you empty your pockets, stuff
like that," Kreuter said, and he began
injecting himself with the drugs to
prevent their being stolen.
Dr. Philip Pizzo of the NIH said that
doctors at the federal facility were con-
cerned about Kreuter's dependence on
morphine and other pain-killers used
during treatment, "but we have ways of
controlling that."
THE REAL problem, Pizzo said, was
Kreuter's use of marijuana laced with
PCP.
Dr. David Pickar, an NIH
psychiatrist who treated Kreuter, said
the youth told him marijuana helped
him endure the nausea related to his
treatment, but "was told repeatedly
that this was against the rules.",
After fights and threats, "we tried to
get alternative treatment for his
psychiatric and drug-related
problems," Pizzo said, but Kreuter
signed himself out three weeks after
NIH arranged for in-patient treatment
at a George Washington University
psychiatric facility.
Pizzo declined to speculate on
Kreuter's chances for survival. After
his cancer was diagnosed, it went into
remission, he said, but recurred about a
year ago.
PAINTING ACQUIRED
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP)-The
Worcester Art Museum says it has
acquired its first painting representing
16th-century Dutch Mannerism.
The painting, "The Wedding of
Peleus and Thetis," is an oil on panel. It
was done by artist Cornelis Cornelisz
(1562-1638), known as Cornelis van
Haarlem.
Signed and dated 1597, the painting
contains many elements of Dutch Man-
nerism, an artistic style which
preceded the realism of the 17th cen-
tury.

musicians," and supporting other ac-
tivities that allegedly increase sexual
stereotypes of women, he said. Such ac-
tions "all lead to violent rape," Okin
claimed.
OKIN ADVISED concerned persons
to write letters to institutions that are
suspected of exploiting women. He said
some advertisers and television script
writers are prime offenders.
Okm also encouraged a boycott of
'sexist' musicians and pornographic
magazines.
Other speakers met with warmer
receptions.

Police
Cash, jewelry stolen
El Greco's restaurant and two
residences were burglarized over the
past three days, Ann Arbor Police
Sergeant Harold Tinsey said yesterday.
El Greco's, located on South State St.,
was robbed Wednesday of an undeter-
mined amount of cash. The thief, ac-
cording to Tinsey, broke into the
restaurant through a window and pried
open the desk drawer contaihing the
money.
About $200 worth of cash and jewelry
was stolen from an apartment on the
500 block of South Forest Ave. late
Tuesday night or early Wednesday
morning Tinsey said. Meanwhile, $875
worth of jewelry was allegedly stolen
from a house located on the 400 block of
Third St. Tinsey said, however, there
was no sign of forced entry. All three
cases are under investigation.
Ministers
form "Moral
Minority"
HOUSTON (UPI) - A group of black
ministers, aided by the ultra-
conservative Moral Majority political
religious movement, is organizing a
sort of "Moral Minority" for blacks.
Dr. J. Herbert Hinkle, pastor of
Cathedral of Faith in Inkster, Mich.,
said the group was mapping strategy
for a new organization to be called
Minorities for Morality in America.
Hinkle, 36, said the new group will
promote the same moral principles as
Rev. Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority.
But Hinkle said it will not be officially
affiliated with the older organization.
"I concur with their positions on
morality and those who agree can't
help but have some sort of coalition,"
Hinkle said. "I'm not interested in par-
tisan politics. We want to become issue-
oriented.

"We have a full line of

of a University-sponsored Rape
Speakers Bureau on campus.
STUDENTS AND citizens of Ann Ar-
bor have to "deal with it, it happens in
this city," O'Rourke told the Diag
crowd.
A rape occurs every five days in Ann
Arbor, according to a PIRGIM report
cited at the rally. PIRGIM calculated
the figure from official police reports
and*other sources including local rape
victim assistance organizations.
In compiling the figures, PIRGIM
also assumed that only one in three
rapes is actually reported.
PIRGIM said it raised more than
$2,100 in the Tag Day campaign that
followed the rally. Spokespersons said
the money will be used to help further
educate the public about rape and to
lobby for later AATA bus hours.
