Greek Week
activities shift
into high gear

By ROB FRANK
The streets of Ann Arbor look like
Greek alphabet soup these days, as
thousands of fraternity and sorority
members don their house sweatshirts,
T-shirts, and caps to celebrate this
year's Greek Week activities.
The gala festivities began last Satur-
day, with the Sigma Nu kick-off party.
Excitement among the organizations
has been building ever since, in an-
ticipation of this Saturday's Greek
Olympics in Burns Park.
MEANWHILE, the Greeks have been
keeping busy with activities like the "I
Eta Pi" pizza-eating contest, an all-
Greek dance and dance contest, and a
Greek Sing competition at Hill
Auditorium. Tonight, fraternity mem-
bers are gearing up for the annual Mr.
Greek contest.
The week is"not highly on the intellec-
tual side," according to Art Nicholas, a
member of Alpha Delta Phi fraternity.
"But, it sure is a lot of fun."
Planners say Greek Week is designed
not only to increase awareness of the
Greek system and promote friendly
competition among the houses, but to

"meet a lot of people and make new
friends."
"Some people have a bad image of
the Greeks," explained Gordy Erley,
co-chairperson of the activities with
Mary Riffe. "We just want them to see
that we're normal people doing things
together like they are," Erley said.
In addition to these aims, according
to Riffe, "We're trying to show the
other side of the Greeks besides the
partying and social life."
Much of the energy today and
tomorrow will be devoted to preparing
for tomorrow's bed race. Members of
the Alpha Delta Pi sorority said they
are confident of doing well in the race
because members of Psi Upsilon, a
fraternity on their team, has "a really
good bed."
Alpha Delta Phi's Nicholas, however,
declared casually that the race "will be
no problem for us," even though his
house took last place a year ago. Ac-
cording to Nicholas, all it will take this
time is for the members "to find a
quicker bed."
Overall, the Greeks said, they want to
have fun, and raise money for local
charities in the process.

participated in was titled "Twilight Zone/Twilight Tome."

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Salvadoran campaign ends
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- The election campaign for El Salvador's
Constituent Assembly wound up yesterday with bitter charges among the
politicians and a mountainside gunbattle between government forces and.
leftist guerrillas near an air base outside the capital.
Military patrols were heavier than usual in the capital's streets but there
were no reports of violence within the city. The military appeared to be
bracing for possible guerrilla disruption of Sunday's vote.
The left is boycotting the election, which the Christian Democrats-
predominant party in the ruling civilian-military junta-are presenting as
the last chance to avoid a communist takeover or a return to rightist dic-
tatorship.
Government troops used bazookas and machine guns against guerrilla
bands for more than two hours before driving them from the slopes of a
mountain overlooking Ilopango Air Force base, some nine miles east of the
capital. One air force man was reported wounded in the pre-dawn action.
Reagan veto beats override
WASHINGTON- The Senate yesterday failed in its first attempt to
override a veto by President Reagan, thus upholding the president's refusal
to accept standby authority to ration crude oil supplies.
The vote to override was 58-36, five votes shy of the two-thirds required.
Reagan vetoed the bill last Saturday, saying he did not want the power it
would have given him to allot crude oil supplies and impose price controls in
cases of severe shortages.
Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker of Tennessee, who voted to sustain
the veto, was one of eight Republican senators who last week urged the
president not to veto the bill because of its heavy bipartisan support.
The president has vetoed two other bills in his 14 months in office. Those
were not challenged.
1GT ou. boosts parent's rights.
INGTON- The Supreme Court has made it more difficult for states
tosever all ties between parents and their allegedly mistreated children.
By a 5-4 decision announced yesterday, the court said that even those per-
sons who have not been "model parents" enjoy ties to their children that
cannot easily be cut.
The justices said a state cannot permanently sever the right of natural
parents to raise their children unless it can prove by the stiff standard of
"clear and convincing evidence" that they are unfit or neglectful.
Any lesser standard would violate the parents' constitutional right to due
process of the law, the court said.
The ruling gives new hope to Annie and John Santosky of Accord, N.Y.,
who are fighting to keep the state from putting three of their five children up
for adoption.
Columbia breaks own record
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Space shuttle Columbia was breaking its own
mileage record yesterday, skimming the globe with two airsick astronauts.
and a stopped-up toilet. But scientific tests went well and a flight director
said, "I'm confident we'll be able to fly the full duration."
During their third day in space, astronauts Jack Lousma and C. Gordon
Fullerton were told, "The experimentors are all very excited about the ex-
cellent data they are getting."
On its first two flights, Columbia never made it past the 54 -hour mark -
by design on flight one; because of a fuel cell breakdown on flight two.
Flying a nose-to-sun thermal test, 150 miles high, Columbia passed that
milestone in its 37th orbit, late yesterday afternoon.
One pesky problem, familiar to everybody, arose when the pilots started
their day; the commode didn't work right. Technicians on the ground con-
tinue to help them clear up the trouble.

Washtenaw
College
increases
tuition 30%

climb from $31.50 to $41 per credit hour;
and for out-of-state students, tuition
will rise from $42.50 per credit hour to
$55.
KETTLES SAID the college has been
hard hit by the state's financial woes.
To balance its budget, the state has held
back its fourth quarter appropriation to
the college-as it has done to the
University-and some WCC officials
now worry that they may never see the
money at all.
"There is a strong indication that we

won't get the delayed fourth quarter
payment," Pollock said. "We an-
ticipate a reduction in funds from the
state of a substantial amount, but we
don't know yet what the actual dollar
reduction will be."
Unlike the University, however, WCC
is not presently considering making
any major cutbacks in its programs or
services, Pollock said. The trustees are
also not planning any cutbacks in WCC
faculty of staff, and since WCC faculty
members are currently in the middle of
a three-year union contract, their

salaries do not figure into the budget
planning, he said.
Aside from difficulties with its state
appropriations, WOC has been hard hit
by federal cutbacks, he said. Changes
in the Trade Readju tment Act have
directly affected about 3o0 to 400 WCC
students who are enrolled in the Yp-
silanti school through the act. The act
provided tuition and living allowances
to students-mostly unemployed auto
workers-who were forced out of jobs
by foreign competition.
