There's a new message on the
telephone lines in Ann Arbor but, unlike
"Dial-a-Prayer" or "Dial Dr. Joyce
Brothers," callers to the "Dialogue
Connection" can talk back.
"Dialogue Connection" is a
philosophical or political discussion
"overheard" by the caller. The conver-
sations cover such varied subjects as
"E.T." and G. Gordon Liddy's
scheduled appearance'in Ann Arbor
A CALLER'S response to the
discussion is recorded on tape after
each dialogue. A dialer can even leave
his number to continue the discussion
The dialogues present the
philosophies of an Ann Arbor spiritual
group called the New Age Movement.
One of the movement's leaders is Rev.
Craig Wilder, a Methodist minister who
spent 15 years in Singapore.
Wilder said he is enthusiastic about
the "space age possibility" of talking
back. So far, the "connection" has
yielded a few interesting comments,
but mostly conversion 'attempts by
Fundamentalist preachers, he said.
OTHER CALLERS respond with
questions or confessions. One
anguished caller complained he "could
not see a difference between right and
wrong in the '80s," Wilder said.
Eventually, Wilder would like to
make "Dialogue Connection" a call-in
dialogue, in which a real person an-
swers and carries on a discussion with

Alfred Lorenzo, president of Macomb
County Community College defended
the quality of the school's graduate
students. "At Macomb, we employ doc-
toral interns from U of M and three
other state universities," he said. "The
U of M students consistently have
greater capability in their work and
morrintest in innovative methods of
"There may be competition and
repetition of programs in the state, but
U of M is unparalleled in its quality,"
Mary Lou Tucker, a second-year
University doctoral student in
educational psychology, said the school
compares favorably with other in-
stitutions around the country.
"I'VE STUDIED at American
University, Washington University,
and New York State University, and I
think the U of M programs are of the
highest quality," she said. "The
University must look to the future,
beyond the present economic crisis,"
Tim Heaney, another doctoral
student in education, said he was
'ashamed' of some of the classes he
took in education, "but others were
challenging, drove me to do my best
work, and helped me in my career.
"It's incumbent on the reviewers to
focus on what's good as well as what's
bad," he said. "Don't let internal
pressures hinder you in a just
Members of the seven-member
review committee asked questions of
the speakers, often to the grumbling of
the school's advocates.
Education officials were pleased with
the turnout, but hoped for a larger room
to hold the future hearings, scheduled
for Oct. 30, Nov. 1, and Nov. 3, to
alleviate the overcrowding like that at
last night's meeting.
the caller. Right now the answerer is a
tape recorder with time for a 30-minute
message and an unlimited response.
The equipment has no counter,
Wilder said, so there is no way of
knowing how many people call unless
they leave comments. He said the
response has been growing, but until
recently students were not the primary
audience. The New Age Movement has
decided to shift the focus of "Dialogue
Connection" from area residents to the
TO WILDER, "Dialogue Connection"
has many uses. For the caller, it is a
chance to seek guidance beyond his
peers, he said. This can help people
search for "the real being," though it
may require an "agonizing reap-
praisal" of their life, Wilder said. The
primary purpose of the dialogues is to
spread the main arguments of the New
Wilder said the New Age Movement
believes American society is a "cut-
flower civilization," a seemingly
beautiful form actually cut off from its
roots and traditions, therefore
deteriorating slowly. Although the New
Age Movement has worked on such
political issues as the nuclear freeze,
Wilder said it is not a political group.
"We are a humanitarian group," he
said. "The New Age Movement is a
group of people with a vision, but of
course we realize we're not going to
start a revolution or change the world."
"Dialogue Connection" is the brain-
child of Dr. Rodney Moag, who is
currently the technical director, and 25
other people associated with the New
Age Movement. A similar phone ser-
vice was tried two years ago, but it did
not have the unlimited response time
the new "Dialogue Connection" has.
Wilder said the first service turned into
a crisis/confession line, which was not
the intended purpose.
The money for this operation comes
from volunteers' pockets. The tape
recorder costs $400 a month to rent, so a
foundation grant may be sought in the
future, said Wilder. The "Dialogue
Connection" offices are in the
Language Communication Specialists
office in Huron Towers.
The "Dialogue Connection" runs 24
hours each day and can be reached at
