U-Cellar recalls its radical conception

By THOMAS HRACH
Hundreds of students stage a sit-
in at the LSA Building,, all because
they want cheaper prices on their
textbook purchases. One hundred
and seven of those students are
arrested while 1,000 rally outside to
support their cause. The entire
campus becomes engulfed in the
controversy which pits students
against the administration.
Certainly this didn't happen in
the 1980's. The year was 1969. This
week commemorates the 15th an-
niversary of that sit-in which
spawned today's University Cellar
bookstore. The formation of a
student-run and non-profit
bookstore in Ann Arbor has its
roots in those tumultuous times of
the late sixties and early seventies.
THE SIT-IN and subsequent out-
cry from the community after

'During that school ear there were
rallies on the Diag at least four times
a week over the student bookstore
issue.'
-Former student Bruce Wilson

President Robben Fleming or-
dered the demonstrators arrested
15 years ago is remembered today
in the form of the modern store on
Liberty Street just off the main
campus.
"During that school year there
were rallies on the Diag at least
four times a week over the student
bookstore issue," said Bruce
Wilson, a student at the time who
helped post bail for those arrested.
"There was going to be a Univer-
sity-sponsored bookstore, but the

sit-in occurred over who was going
to control the store."
Students of that era refused to
accept control of the impending
bookstore by the University. This
set the stage for the confrontation
15 years ago.
THE ORIGINS of a student-run
textbook store that would sell
books at a discount dates back to
even the 1920's. According to Bruce
Weinberg, manager of the store
and an employee of the original
store, issues of a University-spon-

sored book distributor arose as a
campus issue every several years.
In July 1969, the regents voted
down a proposal to form a store
using a fee tacked on to tuition bills
and later refunded to the students
upon graduation. This set the scene
for a major confrontation over the
issue when students returned in the
fall.
"The University's argument
against opening the store was that
books lost money, and the regents
didn't want to be in the business of
competing against local merchan-
ts," said Dennis Webster, manager
of the U-Cellar until 1977. "On the
other side there was a real misun-
derstanding on the part of the
students who envisioned major
reductions in the costs of tex-
tbooks."

Battered Badgers

fall,

20-14

Six turnovers key
Wolverine triumph

By MIKE MCGRAW
If you ask Bo Schembechler, he'll say
his defense made the big hits.
Wisconsin's Larry Emery will tell
you Michigan was lucky.
WHATEVER the cause, the differen-
ce in the Wolverines' 20-14 victory over
a tough Wisconsin squad was six points
and six turnovers.
Yesterday's matchup was a game of
give and take, with the Badgers doing
all of the giving. In the first half,
Wisconsin fumbled four times. Two of
those miscues resulted in 10 Wolverine
points and the others stopped Badger
drives inside the Michigan 10-yard line.
"I feel they were lucky," said Emery,
who battered the Wolverine defense for
185 yards rushing. "We gained more
yards on the ground. We ran the ball
better. I think we're a better team than
Michigan."
BUT Schembechler refused to let the
Wisconsin mistakes take away from his
own team's performance. "We were
lucky this week just like Washington
was lucky last week," he said. "Nobody
felt sorry for me when we turned the
ball over (five times against the
Huskies). We did hit them fairly hard
today and some of them came up."
The biggest hitter of the day for the
Wolverines was sophomore cornerback
Garland Rivers, who led the team in
tackles with 12 and caused two of the
fumbles. Rivers revealed that making
the big play was part of the defensive
game plan all week.
"(The coaches) talked all this week
about hitting with the top of the
(shoulder) pad,' said the Canton, Ohio

native. "'We visualized it and went out
and got some turnovers."
Wisconsin's generosity began on
the opening kickoff. Michael Jones
caught the ball for the Badgers, then
fumbled it when hit by Tim Schulte. Al
Bishop recovered for the Blue at the 10-
yard line.
The Wolverine offense couldn't move
the ball, so Bob Bergeron came on and
hit a field goal of 27 yards to give
Michigan the lead just four plays into the-

The Michigan football media guide
lists him as a mere 5-8, 179 pounder.
But Bo Schembechler admitted that
his brightest freshman recruit is really
a mere 5-6/4, 175 pounds.
JAMIE MORRIS is barely big enough
to support his shoulder pads, yet the
eighteen-year-old speedster proved
that size is not all-important in the Big
Ten. He gobbled up 138 yards on 28

Ferraro
Says GOP
organized
bn-aament

NEW YORK (AP) -
Democratic vice presidential
candidate Geraldine Ferraro
said yesterday that if the
Reagan-Bush campaign is or-
chestrating efforts to harass her,
"Why don't they come out and
fight like men?"
Ferraro declared there is
clear evidence of an organized ef-
fort to attack her with slurs that
she says are "devastating."
WHILE ADMITTING that she
does not know whether the
Reagan-Bush campaign is
organizing the attacks, she said:
"If all this stuff is true and they
are organizing from the White
House, why don't they come out
and fight like men? We have a lot
of issues to discuss."
She made her remarks in a
sidewalk news conference out-
side her home in Queens before a

day of campaigning in New Jer-
sey and Washington.
She had the campaign trail to
herself yesterday, with President
Reagan and Democratic
challenger Walter Mondale both
in Washington and Vice
President George Bush at his
private home in Kennebunkport,
Maine.
REAGAN DID take a verbal
slap at Mondale in his regular
paid weekly radio talk, defending
his own refusal earlier this week
to impose import quotas on steel
and contending that such quotas
would be "the wrong policy" of
his Democratic opponent.
"That kind of protectionism is
my opponent's policy, and just
like his tax increase, it's the
wrong policy," Reagan said. '
He said his plan -to seek

U.8. won 't leave Beirut

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - As the U.S. ambassador stood
next to him with one arm in a cast, U.S. Assistant Secretary
of State Richard Murphy said yesterday that the suicide bom-
bing of the U.S. Embassy annex will not scare the United
States into pulling its diplomatic corps out of Lebanon.
"We are not going home," Murphy told a news conference
at U.S. Ambassador Reginald Bartholomew's heavily guar-
ded residence in Yarze, an eastern suburb of Beirut.
BARTHOLOMEW, injured in the bombing Thursday, ap-
peared with his left arm in a cast and cuts visible over his left
eyebrow and on his cheek and upper lip.
Bartholomew told reporters danger is part of being a U.S.
diplomat. "I think all of us, particularly all of here in Beirut,
understand that," he said.
At least nine people were killed in the bombing, including
two American servicemen, when a suicide terrorist drove a
van packed with explosives around widely spaced concrete
speed barriers and through a volley of gunfire to within 20
feet of the annex, where it exploded. Sixteen Americans were

wounded.
"THE TERRORIST attack on Thursday morning did not
succeed in what I consider to have been its intent and goal,
which was to demolish the embassy and through destruction
and killing, to so sap the will of the American government
that we would decide it was no longer in our interest to main-
tain a relationship, an official relationship, and an official
presence in Lebanon," Murphy said.
The bombing Thursday of the U.S. Embassy annex in east
Beirut is seen by many as the latest proof of America's
inability to play a positive role in Lebanon. It followed an
embassy bombing last year, the destruction of American
military headquarters last October, the withdrawal of U.S.
Marines in April, and escalating battles between Druse and
Shiite militiamen.
By showing again how vulnerable Americans are here, the
latest attack on the U.S. Embassy facility in east Beirut fur-
ther lessens Washington's influence and underscores the
inability of U.S. diplomats to function freely here.

GVEN THE CHOICE, ugly is probably not what the
men of Indiana University of Pennsylvania would
choose to be. Nobody asked them, however. But
ce "Lisa Burnbach's College Book" handed
out the ugliest men urize to UP, the campus has learned

"but if this ugly label is what it takes for us to be known in
California or Colorado, so be it. "If a potential applicant
in New England hears of us only because of the ugly man
and decides to look into the school further, I would say
that is a positive thing," he said in a telephone interview.
The university's budding "most ugly" craze also is
popular among off-campus businesses in Indiana. At
Calico's, an off-campus bar, manager Olam Pantalone
held a Ugliest Male on Campus contest. Pantalone set up
ballot boxes around campus and ran advertisements in
The Penn, the student newspaper, announcing the 12

apple strudel today. Made from two tons of dough, sugar,
cinnamon, and apples and baked in a 100-foot portable
oven, the strudel will be topped off with 200 gallons of ice
cream. The project is part of the seventh Culinary
Festival, which also has produced the largest popcorn ball
and lasagna, organizers said. Louis DiRubba, chairman
of the Westchester and Lower Connecticut Chefs'
Association, and Seymour Arkway, a construction com-
pany president, will supervise volunteers who will mix
and beat batter, spread apples and cinnamon, and watch
the strudel bake for six hours. It will then be cut up and

high and lines long, however Burghoff is only selling 31 of
Radar's cuddly mascots from the long-running TV series.
The bears are being sold in a fundraising and public
awareness campaign for the Paralyzed Veterans of
American, which works to research a cure for spinal core
injury. Burghoff's brother is a Veteran confined to a
wheelchair due to a spinal injury.
