The recent petitions protesting poor
service between North and Central
Campuses has led the Manager of
Transportation Services to write a let-
ter to the Michigan Student Assembly.
The petitions, presented last month to
MSA, criticize the bus system for
unreliable schedules, drivers who
"play games with traffic lights and
brake abruptly," and drivers who
smoke cigarettes.
Transportation Services Manager
John Ellsworth responded to the
charges discussed in the petition in a
letter received by MSA yesterday.
"BUSES operate as close to a pre-
printed schedule as possible given the
delays due to traffic, construction, and
soon the weather . . . We transport
about 16,000 passengers per academic
day with very few complaints, but when
complaints begin to show a pattern or
direction, we can take the necessary
corrective action," said Ellsworth in
his letter. He also explained that buses
may run late "while waiting for
"He has no explanation for the buses
which disappear or don't run at all,"
said Dora Aksoy, the MSA member who
circulated the petition. "He's basically
saying that he's not going to do
anything at all."
The petition and the busing system
seem to split students and drivers on
the severity of the problem.
"I'M SURE A lot of those comments
are valid," said Ron Cucuro, one of
several drivers who had seen the

petitions. "I've heard rumors about
certain drivers."
"I think there are a few complaints
but they're blown way out of propor-
tion," added driver Clark Clodfelder.
ONE STUDENT upset with the
system is LSA sophomore Paige
Laiken. "The drives are rude," she
said. "They would see y ou running for
the bus and just as you get there, they
drive away."
"On the weekends they don't come
when they're supposed to," said Ann
Remmers, a first-year graduate
student. "Some of the drivers like to
pass up stops."
Some drivers and students maintain
that the problems are not as extreme as
the petitions suggest. "I haven't'had
any real problems," said LSA junior
Mike Bolasina. "They're not significan-
tly late. Usually only by five or ten
"It's really not that bad," said
engineering freshman Jeffrey Herman.
"On the weekends they run intermitten-
ly once every half hour, but during the
week I haven't had any problems."
"I HAVEN'T had too many problems
with the buses being late," agrees LSA
freshwoman Debbie Rosenberg.
"A lot of students don't understand
the schedule," said driver Dan Weber-
man. "They expect to get to class in
five minutes and that's impossible.
Other drivers say part of the
problem stems for buses that are more
than ten years old and a lack of money
to hire enough drivers.

A North Campus bus, part of the system which has come under fire by
students, makes its rounds of the campus yesterday.

vels of products such as NoDoz,
and Quick Pep increase by
0 or 300 percent at finals. Now
the store sells about a dozen or
es a day. During the beginning

of the term, State Discount sold only a
couple of packages per day, she said.
"IT'S HARD to get it this time of year
. . . It's not just finals, it's the holiday
time of the year," Schaumann said.
Yesterday, the Kresge's on the cor-
ner of State and N. University was sold
out of similar products. "We're out
now, there should be some more later in
the week," said Judy Calhoun, the
store's personnel manager. Sales of
sleep deterrents increase during finals,
she saidadding that during a normal
week, the store sells about six boxes of
the stimulants per week. During finals,
she said the store sells about 30 boxes.
Richardson's pharmacy also stocked
up on NoDoz and Vivarin. According to
Nancy Gold, the store's merchandiser,
the store ordered about three times as
much of the stimulants as they nor-
mally do. During finals time, she said
students snap up about three dozen
boxes of the products a week. During
the off-season, only about for or five
boxes a week are sold. "There's usually
more (sales) during finals than mid-
terms," she said.
However, this increase in sales also
leads to more incidents of caffeine
overdoses. "We see people during finals
week, a fair amount, with caffeine
overdoses," said a University Health
Service clinician who refused to be
identified. She said these cases are the
result of too much coffee, NoDoz, and
Students who suffer from these over-
doses usually are jittery, shakey, have
