Smoke fills corridors
in East Engineering

The Michigan Daily - Friday, November 11, 1983 - Page 3

By ERIC MATTSON
A .burned-out motor in the basement
of the East Engineering Building sent
smoke throughout the hall yesterday,
forcing most of the students and faculty
inside to evacuate for about half an
hour.
The motor was in the building's ven-
tilation room, causing smoke to spread
uickly through the vents, according to
at. Gary Basso of the Ann Arbor Fire
Department. The only damage oc-
curred in the machine, but a smokey
odor may persist for a few days.
NO ALARM sounded in the building,

according to occupants at the time. The
building is equipped with smoke alar-
ms, but not enough smoke apparently
was generated to set them off, said
Walter Stevens, the University's safety
director.
The people who left the building did
so of their own accord. "We saw smoke
in the hall and the teacher said we
should leave," said Janet Braisted, an
engineering college junior.
"When class started, I was smelling
it. I didn't hear an alarm," said Tany
Habib, an LSA freshwoman.

A.C.'s jersey sent to
Marines in Lebanon

By ERIC MATTSON
Students may find the athletic depart-
ment to be rather bureaucratic and im-
personal when it comes to getting good
basketball tickets, but Phillip Straw, a
federal employee in Washington, D.C.,
found a much different story in his
recent enounter with the folks who work
at State and Hoover.
In preparing a "care" package for
U.S. Marines stationed in Lebanon,
Straw requested and received several
bits of Michigan athletic paraphernalia
- including a football jersey with An-
thony Carter's old #1 on the back.
STRAWA AND about 15 fellow em-
ployees sent requests to colleges and
businesses across the country in their
effort to send 'a touch of home" to the
Marines.
Response from schools everywhere
was good, he said, but "Michigan
frankly contributed the most
significant of all the items we sent."
Michigan equipment manager John
Faulk said that Carter probably did
wear the Jersey, since no new jerseys

part of the program because it gives
him a chance to get audience feedback
which he considers "a priceless gift."
He believes there is no such thing as a
dumb question and is careful "not to
shoot (the audience) down."
ONE REASON behind the program's
success is that it attracts both
astronomy enthusiasts as well as
people who know little about the sub-
ject.
"I can bring a person to the frontier
of the subject with little or no previous
background," Loudon said.
But the program does have a devoted
following.
"It's a great program . . . Half the
people are long-time fans," said Doug
Nelle, president of the University
Lowbrow Astronomers." During the
Jupiter and Saturn fly-by missions, he
said, "you couldn't get a seat."
Those who work closely with Loudon
attest to his devotion to the program.
Barry Christian, the program's current
projectionist, said that Loudon comes
in about two hours before the program
is scheduled to begin to set things up
and work out any last-minute problems.

with the number were ordered this
year.
THE SPORTS Information Office,
which coordinated Michigan's
donations, also sent a football, media
guides, stickers, and pocket schedule
guides.
Straw began the project before the
bombing last month that killed 235
Marines. Interst was good before the
bombing, he said, but it skyrocketed af-
ter the incident. McDonalds, for instan-
ce, had been non-committal toward the
project before the attack, but respon-
ded later with gift certificates for the
Marines to use when they return.
Straw, a Vietnam veteran, said he
tarted the project because he "knows
ow it feels to get mail from home." He
said his group decided to send items
from college athletic departments
because they were looking for things
that would appeal to a 19-year-old
Marine.
