Campus crawls with

closet kleutos

By JOEL OMBRY
Many students at the University have a problem.
Walk into a dorm room or apartment and look around. The
evidence of the problem covers the walls, sits in the cup-
board, and hides in the closet.
SERVING drinks in glasses from Charley's, sitting in high
chairs from McDonald's, and decorating walls with "No
Passing Zone" signs, these students have a tendency to make
off with just about anything they can get their hot little hands
on. -
Some steal out of "necessity" - they need glasses or salt
shakers for their dorm rooms and haven't gotten around to
buying a new set. Others take things just to take them and
show their collections with pride.
One of the most popular items to abscond with is the bar
glass. It makes little difference from where: Rick's
Dooley's, Charley's - anywhere will do. It's easy, many
people say - just walk in, order lots of drinks, and simply
stuff a few glasses into your coat or purse before walking
casually out the door.
MOST STUDENTS agree that this occurs often.
"I'd say everyone who goes to the bar takes at least one in
their ... whatever, career," says a first year nursing student
who asked to remain anonymous.
"I'm pretty sure it happens a lot," says Christopher Evans,
an LSA freshman. "The bars have a lot of glasses, right?"
"PEOPLE DO take a lot of glasses and stuff," says LSA
junior Jenny Davis. "I think it's something that the bars are
so used to, it doesn't bother them much."
Bar managers, however, say the practice occurs frequen-
tly, too frequently, and that the cost is eventually passed on
to the customers.
Norm Foltz, a manager at Dooley's, says he believes some
students, when they've had a little too much to drink think of
getting out the door with a glass as a "conquest."
"WE GO through about four beer cases a week," says Jeff
Trumper, a manager at Rick's American Cafe, adding that
each case contains six dozen glasses. That figure also in-
cludes replacements due to breakage, he said.
Although theft doesn't directly affect drink prices, Trum-

'People do take a lot of glasses
and stuff . . . I think it's
something that the bars are so
used to, it doesn't bother them
much.'
- Jenny Davis
LSA junior
per says it is figured into the overall cost of operating and
costs Rick's about $270 each week.
Eventually everyone pays, says Foltz, because "You have
to make up the difference somewhere."
MANAGERS FROM Dooley's, Good Time Charley's, and
Rick's say they don't prosecute people they catch but merely
make them return the merchandise. To do anything more,
they say, could cause strained customer relations.
Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to watch all of that
money walk out the door.
"It'd be nice to be able to search people when they leave,"
says a manager at Charley's who would not reveal his name.
THOUGH LOCAL bar owners and most students recognize
the problem, some are not quite convinced it runs rampant.
Education school freshman Jeffrey Kiel says he hasn't seen
it happen much. Kiel added, however, that he doesn't go to
the bar much, either.
Drinking establishments, although the primary target of
this criminal urge, are not the only one. The manager at
Wolverine Den Pizzeria says that, especially near the begin-
ning of the semester, students take silverware, salt and pep-
per, and other things for their rooms.

Students
study about
one hour
per day,
poll says

WASHINGTON (AP) - America's children
average just over an hour of homework each
school day, but girls do more than boys and
students at private schools do more than
double the work of those in public schools, the
Census Bureau reported yesterday.
The bureau's annual survey of school
enrollment, conducted last October, also
discovered that black students do slightly
more homework than whites.
THE STUDY found that the median time
spent on homework for students in American
elementary and high schools was 5.4 hours
per week, or 1 hour and 5 minutes per school
day. Median indicates that half of students

would have done more than that amount and
half less.
FOR BLACKS, the total was 5.6 hours per
week, compared with 5.4 for whites and 5.3 for
Hispanics, which may include students of any
race.
But the sharpest difference was between
types of schools, with students in private high
schools doing 14.2 hours of homework weekly,
compared with 6.5 hours by their public-
school counterparts. In the elementary
grades, private schools also led with 5.5 hours
per week.
It said 12.8 percent of students reported
having no homework at all.

beef roast. The staff of the school's
newspaper, The Georgia College
Colonnade, entered the contestant,
called Piece of Meat, to protest the
rules of the 20-year-old February
pageant which one newspaper staffer
called a "flesh show."
THE BEEF, however, was
disqualified immediately.
According to Colonnade staff mem-
ber Drew Boswell, the beef began when
the rules for the pageant were passed

WASHINGTON (AP)-President Reagan
studied but made no decisions yesterday on a
series of defense and domestic spending cuts his
aides proposed for fiscal 1986. Administration of-
ficials said the proposed. cuts would reduce the
federal budget by about $35 billion in the first
year.
White House spokesman Larry Speakes said
Reagan met for about 90 minutes with budget
director David Stockman and other aides and told
them he wanted more time to consider their
recommendations.
"IT WAS HIS decision that he wanted to hear
more," Speakes said. Decisions on where to trim
spending could come later in the week, he said.
The president and his advisers have begun the
process of drafting a spending plan for the fiscal
year that begins Oct. 1, 1985, which Reagan will
submit to Congress early next year.
Their task is complicated by a burgeoning

billion
deficit in the current fiscal year, now expected to
exceed $200 billion, and the president's insistence
that tax increases or cuts in Social Security be
ruled out in any attempt to reduce the deficit.
Stockman gave the president a black, loose-leaf
notebook with suggestions for paring the deficit
which he and his aides have put together in the
past few weeks.
Speakes refused to list the programs outlined in
the budget book as candidates for spending cuts.
But other officials have said they range from
Medicare and farm subsidies to veterans health
care and civil service retirement.
Defense was also on the hit list, officials said,
even though Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger has indicated he intends to seek a nearly 14
percent boost in miliary spending over the
current level.
