Students who spent their vacations in shorts and
sunglasses last week may be shedding a few tears this mor-
ning as they wake up to find a winter wonderland outside
their frozen windows.
The Ann Arbor area won't be hit nearly as hard as other
portions of the country, where a snowstorm rivaling the bliz-
zard of 1978 blocked highways in the Midwest with waist-high
drifts and disabled vehicles yesterday, as snow spread from
Dixie to the Northeast.
LOCAL WEATHER authorities predict that a total of seven
to 10 inches of snow will have accumulated by the time the
storm runs its course. They say Mother Nature won't be
finished until sometime Wednesday.
Although it appears that a blizzard has struck, don't be
fooled. According to WDIV-TV meteorologist Paul Gross,
this snowstorm can't be classified as a blizzard because tem-
peratures aren't nearly cold enough. Technically, the tem-
perature must be at least 10 degrees and winds must be
blowing at 35 mpg. As of late last night, the temperature in
Ann Arbor was only 22 degrees, with winds gusting to a mere
The season's biggest storm inched across other parts of the
Midwest yesterday, plastering Missouri with up to 18 inches
of snow and sending seasoned Indiana residents rushing to
supermarkets to stock up for a winter siege.
THE STORM, which rolled out of the Colorado Rockies
during the weekend with whistling gusts, heavy snows, and
soaking rains, was on a track forecasters predicted would
take it into the heavily populated Northeast by today.
The storm system's high winds, cold temperatures and
heavy snows were blamed for six deaths from Texas to
A 77-year-old Illinois man was killed and four other people
were injured Sunday when a car skidded off icy Route 15 and
fell 30 feet down an embankment.
"IT'S PROBABLY the biggest storm this year, ast far as
its breadth, its size," said Bill Sammler, of the National
Severe Storms Forecasting Center In Kansas City, Mo.
"It may end up being the worst," he said. The storm was
especially dangerous because of its slow pace, which gave
the system time to collect more moisture as it moved from
the Gulf of Mexico toward the Atlantic Ocean.
"It looks like it's also going to be a very good storm for the

U oins other schools
in draft law challenge
By LAURIE DELATER
The University's regents last week joined the University of
Minnesota to challenge the Solomon Amendment, a federal
law, denying financial aid to students who do not register for
The regents, however, only agreed to oppose the amen-
dment on the grounds that it forces universities to enforce the.
law. They declined to support the University of Minnesota's
full legal brief, which argues against the law's con-
stitutionality on several points.
A MINNESOTA FEDERAL judge ruled the law uncon-
titutional last year, but the U.S. Justice Department is ap-
pealing that ruling before the Supreme Court. The Minnesota
Civil Liberties Union, which will oppose the Justice Depar-
tment in the trial, asked the University to join the University
of Minnesota's challenge of the law.,.
The regents were wary of supporting the full brief because
they had seen only a rough draft of the arguments, and
because the brief challenges the law on several grounds with
which the regents did not agree.
As aresult, they asked the University of Minnesota to in-
clude a special paragraph written by Roderick Daane, the
University's general counsel.
THE PARAGRAPH says that the University's "sole pur-
pose" in opposing the law is to take the responsibility for en-
forcement off the universities' shoulders and to remove the
administrative burden the law creates for universities.

Three football jerseys which were
stolen from showcases in Crisler Arena
were returned unharmed to University
officials last week after being traced as
far as Florida.
The jerseys, which were worn by
Tom Harmon, Bennie Oosterbann, and
Ron Kramer, were reported missing
from the display cases on December 15.
THERE WAS no sign of forced entry
into the cases, according to city police,
and there is some indication that keys
were stolen a day earlier. 1
According to Ann Arbor Police Sgt,
Harold Tinsey, an anonymous third
party attorney tipped off police to the
whereabouts of the jerseys.
Police were led to Eastern Michigan
University students and further in-
vestigation led to contacts at the
University of Florida's campus .at
Gainesville, according to another
unidentified source, Tinsey said.
TINSEY SAID there is insufficient
evidence in the cast to charge anyone
with stealing the jerseys.
"We got the jerseys back finally and
it was nice to see them returned," said
Ann Arbor detective Dave Jachalke,
who was assigned to the case.
University Athletic Director Don
Canham said in a- written statement
last week, "We are extremely indebted
to the Ann Arbor Police Department
and the Ann Arbor Detective Depar-
tment for their tremendous efforts in
tracking down the items and having
them returned undamaged."
Canham added, "The memorabilia is
of great historical significance to us
and the many fans who view the items
on a weekly basis in Crisler Arena. We
are extremely pleased to have them
The jerseys have been housed at
Crisler since Millie Schembechler, wife
of head football coach Bo Schem-
bechler, organized a display in 1979 to
celebrate the 100th anniversary of

CONCORD, N.H. - Front-runner Walter Mon-
dale left last-minute campaigning to an army of
700 workers Monday as his seven Democratic
rivals combed New Hampshire on the eve of the
first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
A major storm with snow, sleet, and freezing
rain was forecast for primary day, which could
hurt the turnout expected to be about 100,000 on
the Democratic side.
AS MONDALE shook the last hand of a lone
New Hampshire campaign, a poll indicated
yesterday that Sen. Gary Hart was closing in on
the Democratic presidential front-runner one
day before the state's kickoff primary.
"I'm not looking at the polls. We're doing
well," the former vice president said as he
greeted workers outside a shoe factory on a cold
But Hart, bidding to displace Sen. John Glenn
as Mondale's closest rival, declared, "There's a
lot of voter switching," in the final hours of the
campaign. "People are jumping all over the
place." Hart declared he already has won in New
Hampshire, because he is considered a serious
TWO FRESH POLLS agreed Mondale holds a
lead over Hart, who has surged into a second
place on the strength of a surprise runner-up
finish in last Monday's lead-off Iowa caucuses.
An ABC-Washington Post poll reported Mon-
dale had 32 percent of the support, to 25 percent
for Hart, 15 percent for Sen. John Glenn and 8
percent for the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Former Sen. George McGovern had 5 percent
and Sen. Ernest Hollings had 3 percent, followed
by Sen. Alan Cranston with 2 percent and former
Florida Gov. Reubin Askew with 1 percent in a
survey of 450 voters.
MONDALE HIMSELF campaigned only
briefly in the state during the day. He spent less
than half-hour standing outside Manchester
shoe factory, then flew to Boston to accept the
endorsement of Mayor Ray Flynn.
He left behind him a strong, labor-backed
organization that is the envy of his seven rivals
and has made him a prohibitive favorite in a
state that will send 22 delegates to the
Democratic National convention.
Hart decided to stay in New Hampshire and
campaign to the last. His strategy for the last 24
hours, he said, was "try not to make a mistake."

SOVIET tractor driver awarded a bonus of 25 rubles
($31) for good work decided to celebrate with his co-
workers in a pub recently, but the night ended in disaster.

the Soviet newspaper Pravda. "His wife refused to let him

simply lifted the brightly colored canvases off the walls- of a
gallery in the Hotel Continental and walked out the door.
The boys made off with 7 paintings over a two-week period,
police said. Some of the canvases by popular Chicago artist
Manuel Ruiz were five feet wide. In one heist, witnesses
said they saw a shoeshine boy carrying a shoeshine box un-
der one arm and a painting under the other. By Sunday,
three of the boys were in custody and 10 of the paintings had
